My MAC Lipstick Collection


I know collections are quite big or have more than 5 in it but I just wanted to show you my little MAC Lipstick Collection. It may be small but my goodness do they stand out from the crowd and have a lot to say for themselves compared to a lot of lipsticks on the market. I have a huge MAC wishlist but up until now this is my only makeup in my collection (for now that is)

MAC is a huge makeup company that sells a variety of makeup including their famous makeup setting spray, foundation and amazing collections they bring out. They also have a lipstick collection called viva glam that raises funds for the M.A.C aids fund by donating the price of the viva glam products minus vat. Lots of celebrities have backed the campaign including RuPaul, Miley Cyrus and most recently SIA. More info on the fund here.
MAC Lipstick Collection
So you are probably wondering why am I posting about only 4 lipsticks... Well in my opinion if you love something it doesn't matter the size of the collection is the quality. I really do think the lipsticks have so many good points and I will explain some of them. 

1. They have so many choices to choose from; not only that they bring out new collections every now and again too.

2. The lipstick tube is very good quality - Now you might think that is a small point but it feels like a good quality product and I love the way the lid clicks back on the lipstick tube. 

3. It has a lovely delicate scent - They have a fresh vanilla scent to the lipsticks which is lovely and not overpowering at all. 

4. Different product designs - They have the usual product designs but when they bring out new collections they have unique packaging; just like the snowball collection for Christmas 2017.

5. Different finishes-  They have a variety of different finishes including; matte, retro matte, satin, lustre and amplified.

My MAC Lipsticks

Russian Red  
This is an intense blue-red shade and it definitely has some retro vibes to it for sure. It is a matte finish but it is very easy to apply that it almost feels like a creamy lipstick. The red is very intense and is super pigmented. Russian red has to be my favourite red lipstick in my collection as its vibrant and its long lasting too.  I reapply this lipstick every 3+ hours and it feels very soft and weightless on my lips. I don't use a lip liner with this and I have no problems with this lipstick bleeding.

Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2
This is the second lipstick that Ariana Grande created with MAC. This lipstick came out back in 2016 but I found this in my local TK Maxx for a bargain price of £10. This lipstick is also a matte finish and just like Russian red it applies very creamy and feels soft and weightless on the lips. It is a vibrant pink/purple shade and honestly, I just fell in love with it as soon as I opened it and applied it for the first time. As with the above, this is also very pigmented and only needs reapplying every 3+ hours. 
My MAC Lipstick collection
Viva Glam Miley Cyrus 
This lipstick is in an amplified finish and is gorgeous hot pink shade. This lipstick was one first purchase from MAC and is one of the reasons I love MAC lipsticks so much now. This lipstick is very creamy and works wonderfully well with the matching lip glass. It has Miley signature embossed into the lipstick tube and the design is nice too. This is a lot softer than the other lipsticks so not a lot of pressure is needed with this for a pigmented look. This needs reapplied more than a matte lipstick but its still a lovely lipstick.

Flat Out Fabulous
The finish of this is retro matte and my goodness even though I do love the bright plum matte shade, it is extremely dry and not the easiest lipstick in the world to apply. I would definitely recommend putting on a lip balm before applying this. Even though is quite dry to apply it doesn't look dry on the lips and has a longer lasting finish compared to the other lipsticks and can last 5+ hours without the need to apply in that time. 

Below are swatches of the lipsticks in my collection
Mac lipstick swatches
I hope you loved my lipstick collection and I am sure a few more will be added at a future date so keep a look out for an updated version of this post. If you have a MAC or any lipstick brand lipstick collection please send me a link to the post, I would love to see.

Do you have any MAC Lipsticks; if so which is your favourite?

Lush Turtle Immersion Jelly Bomb | Review


It had been a while since I had gone to Lush and the last product I had used was the fabulous violet-scented April showers bath bomb which was from the easter range. Is it me or do you wish like me that they would keep some of the holiday-themed products all year round? Anyways on my recent trip, I decided to try out the jelly bomb Turtle Immersion which is a jelly bath bomb in the shape of a turtle.

Turtle Immersion was made to raise the dangers of plastic pollution to sea life including turtles. A shocking statistic is that 90% of seabirds have swallowed some sort of plastic in the ocean. They definitely need to be a reduction of how much plastic we all use and a more biodegradable option needs to be in place. Recycling is a must for all things that can be recycled. 
lush turtle immersion jelly bomb
Design
The design is very fun and it's in the shape of a sea turtle. It is a light green with vibrant green circles on its back that resembles a turtles shell. Inside the jelly bomb is also jelly agar agar strands that resemble plastic ( but these are biodegradable).

Scent/Frangrace
 This honestly smells like the fresh breeze with its ingredients. It contains pine needles absolute, hand-harvested sea salt, agar agar strands and cypress oil.

❤ Pine needles absolute - fragrant and warming
❤ Hand harvested sea salt - cleansing, volumising and mineral-rich
❤ Agar agar strands - softening
❤ Cypress oil - Antiseptic and relaxing

lush turtle immersion
How to use
With bath bombs, in general, I like to put them in warm running water as they usually have a display or a hidden surprise inside like popping candy. With jelly bombs, it is a bit different I like to have my bath full of warm water then put in the jelly bomb that way it dissolves nicely into a nice soft jelly and a burst of colour too.
lush turtle immersion jelly bomb review
My Thoughts
The slight problem I have with this jelly bomb is the price! I cost £6.95 and none of the money goes into what this product is all about and kinda takes away the point for me. It is good they are raising awareness I know but I think some of the money should have gone at least.

Apart from that its a pretty good bath jelly. It has a lovely refreshing sea breeze scent which is just relaxing and calming in the bath. I love the scent combinations especially pine needles its lovely. I am not sure about the jelly to feel though as its quite slippy and reminds me a bit of slime. I love the design it's very nice and it is very nice on the skin too as its very softening on the skin which adds to the relaxing side of this product.

Was it worth the money? Not for me personally as its just like any other bath product from lush to be honest. I do love the fun design its super fun and I won't repeat what I said above but it leaves a little sour taste in my mouth.

Where to buy?
Lush online and some lush stores as its a lush exclusive

Life Update ( 2018 )

Can you believe its more than halfway through the blooming year? Can we please just slow down time a little bit please because this year has just zoomed by even though has its hiccups for me it still needs to slow it ass down a little aha. Next month is my birthday and I am going to be 28! I honestly can't believe how quick the time has gone. 

So you are all probably wondering what on earth I have got up to so far this year and honestly I think everything but the kitchen sink has happened to me this year. 


1. I created 'Moonlight Mel'  I used to have a blog called Fruity Flamingo but after much thought and the things my life was going at the time I thought it was time for a refresh and I am so glad I did now, love my new blog.

 I like to post a variety of different subjects and I am open to posting pretty much everything on my blog that represents me as a person. So whether that be my PCOS or going to a family outing, well you guessed it... it could be on my blog.

2. I started a youtube channel - It's nothing huge it is pretty small but I don't mind at all because I love to talk and share product reviews and other rambles too. The main reason I started my youtube channel was to boost my confidence levels and it surprised me how much it helped me so far, I'm going to keep posting. If you want to follow here's my youtube link

3. We got another Guinea pig - Yes another pig was adopted by us and his name is puri puri. Yes, he is named after the character of one punch man. He is very confident and his favourite food is broccoli and carrots.

 My other 2 guinea pigs; Gordon and Arthur just love him a lot and they are all good friends which is so cute to see.
4. I finally got 6000 followers on Twitter - I have been on Twitter since 2012 and I am just addicted to it. It is a good place to make friends with other bloggers and also to share the blog and youtube videos too. My biggest follower has to be Tom Cruise and I was so shocked the day it happened and I am still buzzing about it now haha.

I am hopeful to grow my Instagram but my goodness its hard to grow on there at the moment but I am definitely going to stick at it as much as possible.

5. We are going to a wedding! - We are going to a family wedding on the weekend and they are a mehndi that we are going too on Wednesday too and we are all super excited. We nearly have everything sorted so it should be a pretty fun day. We also went to a wedding last year which was an amazing experience.

I have a nice dress I found in the monsoon sale and I got the kids some lovely outfits in the next sale so everything was a bargain but they look fab, I can't wait to show the photos to you all.

6. I applied for a course at College - I actually shocked myself by applying for a course at college. I love flowers and always liked the idea of doing floristry so I have applied and have an interview for college in August so wish me luck, everyone.

7. The kids are on summer holiday - I can't believe how fast the school year has gone by this year; it was super quick. My youngest has finished her first year at school and I am shocked at how fast the time has gone by because it was like 2 mins ago since she went to the nursery.

My son when he goes back will be in his last year of primary school and omg I can't believe that either. We are going to visit a few places over the holidays including maybe the theme park, shhh don't tell them haha.

Anyways I hope you enjoyed this post. I know its different then the usual beauty and food posts but I fancied a little change and hopefully if you all like these kinds of posts I will add more of these types of posts in the future too.


Until next time

Eco Soapia Pure Castile Soap | Review

When it comes to handsoap I can be a little picky because my hands can get very dry and sensitive with quite a lot of hand washes so keeping a lookout for delicate hand wash is very important to me for sure. If I buy something that doesn't agree with my sensitive skin the skin between my fingers can start to peal and be quite sensitive and not only that can also make my hands quite dry. 

Eco Soapia Hand wash & Body wash is a range of 100% organic ( Soil Association Certified) pure castile soap that is made from the finest and organic ingredients.  These come in 4 different scents and are very kind on the skin.
Notable points about Eco Soapia 

  • Free from any chemicals, toxins and harmful preservatives  
  • Organic ( Soil Association Certified)  
  • No artificial fragrances or fillers 
  • Cruelty-free ( BUAV Approved) 
  • Vegetarian-Friendly
Packaging
It looks like its come from Selfridges beauty department when it first opened, doesn't it? I love the retro design of this. A lot of thought and effort has been put into the label and each label is a different shade depending on the fragrance. 

The bottle is made out of plastic but I honestly think it looks like glass and I think it would have been better if it was as it could have been reused but still its fab and works so well with its each to use the pump.

Texture
Now the texture is quite unique actually as usually a lot of handwashes are quite thin. This, on the other hand, has a thick almost gel-like consistency. 

Ingredients 
Aqua,Potassium Oleate,Potassium Cocoate,                              Glycerin,Lavandula Angustifolia Oil, Potassium Citrate,                                         
Sodium Chloride,Citric Acid, Geraniol,Limonene,Linalool       

eco soapie pure Castile soap
Fragrances to choose from

  • Lavender 
  • Rose Geranium 
  • Sicilian Orange 
  • Unscented 

How to use?
Well, its simply like any other handwash you would use just a little bit thicker that's all. I think one pump is enough as it covers both of my hands with a nice lather. I wash it off like any other handwash but this one makes my hands feel soft and clean too.

eco soapie pure castile soap review


My Thoughts
I wasn't sure about the price of £7.90 but after using this for over 3 weeks now I do honestly think the price is justified in many ways. It comes in a 295ml bottle and trust me it lasts a long time as me and my family use it and they are still plenty left after using for nearly 3 weeks. Another thing is how amazing it feels on the skin! WOW; it doesn't hurt my hands at all and my goodness my hands can get super sensitive sometimes.

 It honestly think the ingredients make this such an amazing product as its made from quality ingredients and the finest botanicals. The way each product is made is in a way in which it benefits the skin and keeps the ingredients as good quality as possible.

Now, are you wondering if I would buy again? I would 100% buy from them again and I would pick the rose and geranium fragrance next time.


Where can I buy Eco Soapia?
Certain health shops, Fenwicks and online(full list on their website)

Revolution Renaissance Flick | Review

Revolution ( Makeup Revolution) keep bringing out amazing products and as much as it can be exciting I can't keep up haha. Anyways I recently found their fairly new release and its called renaissance flick. I wear eyeliner practically every day so giving this a try was a must because I wanted a change from my firm favourite boujouis liquid liner. 

Revolution is a budget-friendly makeup brand that has new releases very regularly. They have a variety of products including; eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks and their super famous concealer. Revolution is also budget-friendly and lots of thier products are budget friendly. 
revolution renaissance flick eyeliner
First Impressions
I think the packaging is very sleek and the box it comes in makes the product stand out nicely in the shop. The liner is in a luxurious rose gold finish with a cute design top which pops off and snaps back on, so no messing about screwing the top back on.

The liner itself is like a marker pen but a lot finer also thinner and a little bit longer as well. I am more used to the liquid liner with the fine brushes but surprisingly this worked really well even though it took a few tries to get used to applying this liner.

I think its a good liner as its a good shape to get a good grip of because if applying liner the importance of a good grip makes the world of difference; well at least to me it does.
revolution renaissance flick
Ingredients 
Aqua, Styrene/Carylates Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, Glycerol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Carbon Black

Cruelty-free
Revolution Renaissance Flick review
My Thoughts
will this replace my favourite eyeliner? Well yes and no! It is a very good liner and I really do enjoy using this product. It is very easy to use and it can be used for everyday makeup to more dramatic eyeliner looks too with ease seeing as it's got a fine tip that is extremely pigmented. I have made a youtube video below of me applying the eyeliner for the first time

Renaissance flick is super long lasting and even after a long days wear it was still in place even with the very hot weather. Don't worry though it is easy to remove as well if using a micellar water.

Even though I do love this eyeliner I still will use my other liners, ya know... a girl needs choices and eyeliner for me is something that I can't compromise on. 

Where to buy?
Makeup revolution online store and also is Superdrug stores and their online shop too. 

How much is it?
a bargain of £5

A Pony Called Steve | First Impressions

I love handwashes, soaps and all things that smell nice! I was delighted to try out these out by an indie brand called a pony called Steve. I usually use brands that you can find in the supermarket or the occasional time I might get to the body shop depending if they are a sale on.

A Pony Called Steven is a brand based in Glasgow and they sell a variety of products including; soaps, solid perfumes and body wash. I got sent pear drops the soap and honeyed raspberry hand wash. 
a pony called Steve first impressions
Packaging 
I just love the packaging on all of their products. Each scent has its own particular design on it which is nice and a great way to find the product you want. The pear drops have a nice design of pears with leaves on the background and the honeyed raspberry has an icy pink and blue background. 

The packaging also has nice little bits of writing describing the fragrances which I think they are quirky and fun. 

Scents to choose from
  • Green Opal
  • Honeyed Raspberry 
  • Mojito 
  • Parma Violets
  • Pink Lemonade 
  • Pear Drops

a pony called Steve review
 Products available

  • Soap
  • Solid Perfume
  • Bath and body wash
  • Handwash
  • Body Lotion 
  • Bath Fizz
  • Candles
They offer these in the fragrances above and the products are cruelty-free too. 

a pony called Steve
My Thoughts
Honestly, these both smell heavenly but my favourite has to be the pear drops the soap. The pear drops soap smells like the retro sweets pear drops and wow it smells lovely if using in the shower or just to wash your hands. It has a very creamy formula and feels silky on the skin

The Honeyed raspberry hand wash is fabulous too and too me it smells a lot like slushies! It smells very sweet and works wonderfully well on my sensitive skin without any irritation. 

Want to know more about A Pony called Steve? sure you do!
Check out their website below for more of their fabulous products

The Body Shop British Rose Body Yogurt | Review


As many of you might know, skincare is a big part of my life and I love trying different brands and products too. I recently rediscovered the body shop skincare products as I've been trying other brands for a while.

Anyways if you are anything like me then you might of just noticed the body shops release of body yogurts. They come in a variety of fragrances and are all vegan friendly.
Packaging
I think the packaging is super cute! With British rose it comes in a light pink tub with a secure screw on lid with a rose design ontop.

Texture
The texture is lightweight which is one of this products best properties. It absorbs into the skin super fast without the waiting around. The texture is like a serum and nice and cooling too.

Scent/Fragrance
The scent of this is rose and it comes from rose extract from England and it also has community trade organic almond milk from Spain.

Ingredients 
Aqua, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Parfum, Phenoxyethanol, Carbomer, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Dimethiconol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Benzyl Salicylate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Citronellol, Geraniol, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Rose Extract, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Seed Extract, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Dehydroacetic Acid, CI 14700, CI 19140.

How to use 
You basically apply this straight out of the shower or bath. It absorbs into the skin quickly so no waiting around waiting for this product to dry and absorb into the skin. 

I also like to put this on my skin throughout the day for extra bit of love and care seeing is feels so lush on the skin.
My thoughts 
Honesty? I haven't got a bad word to say about this which is a rare occurance because I like being honest with you all. Anyways I love how fast this gel absorbs into the skin and it feels super silky too. It keeps my skin mostirised and doesnt having sticky residue either.

The fragrance is one of the best things about this as it smells so fresh and the rose scent is just lovely and refreshing. 


I honestly wish I bought more of the fragrances because it works so well and the scent is just heavely.

Where to buy? 
You can find these in the body shop stores and also on their online shop.

How much is it? 
£8.50

Lush April Showers | Review


Now you may all be wondering why I'm posting about a bath bomb that isn't at lush at the moment unlike the last bath bomb I tried called think pink . The thing is I got this a few months back and it wasn't until recently till I actually tried it out for myself. I may aswell put a little spoiler and say its one of my favourites!

Lush has lots lf different seasonal stuff amd this came out a few months back in part of the Easter 2018 collection. Anyone else wish that some of the seasonal stuff would stay for good?


First impressions 
Its too darn cure! Its in shape of a cloud anf has little purple and pink raindrops inside of it.

Scent/fragrance
Organic cocoa butter, cedar wood oil, violet leaf absolute and tonka absolute.

Ingredients 
Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Perfume, Cornflour, Cedarwood Oil, Violet Leaf Absolute, Cypress Oil, Tonka Absolute, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Water (Aqua), Laureth 4, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, *Limonene, *Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl ionone, Coumarin, Eugenol, Colour 45410, Colour 42090, Colour 60725.

How to use
I find that these work best if you put them directly in the water while the taps are still running warm water. 

My thoughts 
Ohhhhh it was divine and just like titsy totsy i honestly wish that I bought more than one of these to last. The scent is just gorgeous and its like being in a bath of parma violets. It gives a njce display of white from the cloud and pink and purple from the raindrops. The raindrops are oil based so this bath bomb feels amazing on the skin.

If you can find one of these I would defiantly recommend trying it out.


Have you been to lush lately; if so what did you buy?

Man Polish Mens Moisturiser | Review

Hello, Darlings!

Man Polish a new brand to me and I was kindly sent it to review. Don't let the name fool you as women can use this moisturiser too as I was informed by the company. I am a big fan of trying different brands of skincare products so giving this a try was so exciting for me. If you all may have noticed shops have started to stock more skincare products for me which I think is brilliant because a few years ago the choice wasn't huge. 

Man polish is made in the UK and it comes in 3 different types which are subtle, neutral and strong. The moisturisers are tailored to men's skin and last all day long and are suited for men of any age. 
man polish review
Packaging
I just love it! It's very unique and has a design of a shield with a wee adorable top hat on top of it. I love the silver finishing with the black. It comes in a very strong glass jar and also an easy to open the lid and easy to shut too.

Texture
It has a very thick and creamy texture and also feels very cooling on fingers before applying onto the skin which is very nice and refreshing.

Scent/Fragrance 
This is actually fragrance-free! Thank goodness, that's a breath of fresh air because far too many skin products have too much fragrance in them.

Natural ingredients inside include
shea butter, jojoba oil and argan oil

This product is also cruelty-free and vegan-friendly
man polish mens moisturiser review
 How to use
I would recommend using this in the morning just after washing your face with lukewarm water and dry is gentle with a flannel, don't be tempted to be rough as it can hurt skin. I say lukewarm water as it helps wake you up and it helps the moisturiser apply much easier.

Seeing that this gives you all day moisture I would say once a day is fine but if you like me a night time cream wouldn't go amiss for a little bit of a skincare luxury.

mans polish mens moisturiser
My thoughts
I am in love with moisturiser and would recommend it to anyone looking to try a new skincare product. Seeing as its fragrance-free its good for any skin type; mine is sensitive and this moisturiser was calming on my skin. 

Applying this was lovely and it was non-greasy too and soaked into the skin within a few minutes, so no faffing around waiting for it to dry thankfully. You get a generous amount of product as each jar contains 50ml of product which I think is a bargain for £18.95/

They have 3 different products to choose from including moisturisers that add a little bit of a tint for a tan and they are more info on that on their website. 

Where to buy?

How much is it?
£18.95

What the Fudge Desserts Glasgow | Review

Hello, Darlings!

I am partial to a delicious dessert every now and again and one of my favourite places to go whenever I get time to go is what the fudge. We got recommended this place off a client of my partner and we have been going here every now and again since. 

What the Fudge desserts are a small dessert cafe based on Victoria Rd in Glasgow.  They offer a variety of different things including; cake, milkshakes and my personal favourite hot sweet waffles with ice cream. You can sit inside or you can takeaway which is handy because the shop can get quite busy at times. 
what the fudge desserts glasgow review
The menu is above the counter or if you want to sit in you can sit at a booth and look at a menu and decide what food you want to order. I didn't take long to choose what to order because I am sooo addicted to hot waffles, they are my ultimate favourite!!!

What we ordered
Marshmellow cookie dough - yes you read that correctly! The most heavenly sugary combination 
Strawberry and chocolate waffles - This waffle is covered in quartered strawberries and drizzles with warm chocolate. 

Seeing as these are freshly made you have a little bit of waiting period before you get your order, especially if the shop is busy. Once the order came we were blown away with the detail they put in with our orders. They give you a good amount of toppings, the servings are big and they are beautiful too look at but I am sure you are all wondering, how do they taste?

The waffles were lovely and warm and the combination of the cholcate, strawberries and ice cream was just divine and my favourite out of the 2 that evening. I did like the marshmallow cookie dough but I know this sounds too daft but it was VERY SUGARY not that I usually mind but I thought a little OTT. I did like the combination of the marshmallows, cookie and ice cream. The ice cream complimented the warm cookie dough nicely. 
what the fudge desserts Glasgow
My thoughts
I love going here for a treat as they are plenty of options to choose from and I have lost count of how many times we have been here now and we still love it and get different things each time too. My kids love the selection of icecreams here and ithasn'tt taken them long to choose there favourites. We mostly sit when we go here but sometimes we takeaway and have this at home if we have summit planned like watching a film. The decor and seating are very nice and has a superhero/retro vibes to it. The seating is comfortable and the staff are very friendly.

Lush Think Pink Bath Bomb | Review


Hello, Darlings!

It has been a while since my last Lush bath tiger, tiger burning bright bath bomb so it was about time to step back into lush and get myself a new bath bomb to treat myself too. I have tried so many bath bombs over the years that I have actually lost track so I decided to be random and get a sparkly pink bath bomb called think pink.

I think this is a year-round product and is quite a big bath bomb don't you think? I think the fact its pink and sparkly was the biggest factor to why I bought this.
First impressions
Its pink and sparkly, whats not to love?

Design 
Not 100% what the design is but I think it could be a bow design that a random all over the bath bomb.

    How to use
    I think its best to use bath bombs once the bath is full of warm water; that way you can see the bath bomb in all its glory. Different products are different like bubble bars, oil melts etc.

    My thoughts
    WOWWED by this fabulous Think Pink bath bomb! It was a pink galaxy of so many shades of pink and foam. It fizzed and foamed for 5 minutes before it melted completely and the bath was let a gorgeous fuschia pink. It has lots of sparkles and having a bath in this made me feel like I was magical. The scent was very nice and was very floral and sweet, kinda like a cake.It was super softening on the skin and felt like a treat.

    I will 100% be buying this again in the future, it's gorgeous!

    Have you bought anything in Lush lately?
