The Netflix Tag

So I saw this Netflix tag that had been created by Alice, and just had to do it because well Netflix has pretty much taken over my life these last few months! I went a couple of months without watching it due to being overwhelmed with college work, but lately I've been literally hooked. 

1. What are you favourite series' to watch on Netflix?
Right where to start.. 90210, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, Prison Break, Misfits, Orphan Black... 

2. What are you currently watching on Netflix?
I am currently re-watching 90210, season 2 episode 10 to be exact! After this I will be watching Homeland and The Originals!

3. If you could have any series, old or new put on Netflix, what would it be? 
One Tree Hill, I absolutely love it but had to watch it on Amazon instant prime! Also Friends as I would love to watch them all in order! 

4. What is your one peeve about Netflix?
The 'are you still watching...' pop up that comes up. I watch Netflix on the PS3 with a wired controller that isn't next to my bed so I get all comfy and then that pops up like every three episodes, annoying but can be handy if I fall asleep watching it so the episodes don't continue playing through the night! 

5. What are your essentials for a perfect night in with Netflix?
my bed, food and constant cups of tea! 

6. Recommend one series or film for someone else.
I watched prison break as a recommendation from my boyfriend as I always watch the typical girly series, I thought I wouldn't enjoy it but I've watched all the seasons around 3/4 times now! It is seriously good! 

I tag anyone who loves Netflix!!! Let me know if you do this tag, I would love to find some new series to watch!

YSL Babydoll Mascara | Review

This was possibly one of my favourite Christmas presents as I wanted it for sooo long, so when I opened this I was thrilled as my Mum knew just how many times I almost bought it! I am very picky when it comes to mascaras, I buy loads but never seem to find that perfect one. I end up using a different one almost every day! However I can honestly say that since Christmas Day this has been the only mascara I have used! 

The reason why I love this is because firstly it has a plastic wand, I find them sooo much easier to use as the product doesn't get everywhere. Secondly, it doesn't make your lashes clumpy if you put more than one layer on which is what happens with most of the mascaras I own! Thirdly, it keeps your lashes separated instead of sticking together and looking like you only have about 10 eyelashes. Not to mention the packaging is simply gorgeous but from YSL what else do you expect?

These pictures show my lashes after just one coat of this mascara. You can see what I mean about how fluttery it keeps your lashes looking whilst still giving a lot of length! I curl my lashes before applying this mascara and these are the results of just one coat, I don't tend to go overboard with mascara so I just keep it like this as I feel this is just enough for me! If I am going out for a special occasion or want a bit more volume I would add another coat and curl them some more which makes such a difference!

What do you think of this mascara? Have you tried it?

Makeup Revolution Protection Palette | Review

 Today I have a review on this new release from Makeup Revolution which is the protection palette. Literally the one thing necessary for travelling. This palette contains 3 concealers, powder, matte bronzer, blush and a highlighter. What else do you even need?! I am really impressed with the quality of everything in this palette, not to mention this also includes a full size mirror making it the perfect travel essential. All the top up products you need in just one palette instead of taking 4 different products out! 

I am very impressed with how pigmented these are, I really put a lot of product onto my contour brush not expecting much pigmentation from the bronzer but boy was I wrong! Literally one tap into the product and my brush had enough! The concealers are very creamy, not exactly full coverage but still did the job in hiding the redness of my smaller blemishes! The fact that you also get three different concealer shades in the palette instead of just one is brilliant as it means you can mix them to get your perfect colour. 
The blush is such a gorgeous shade, perfect for my pale skin! Highly pigmented again so you don't need much to get those flushed rosy cheeks! I have never tried a blush this colour but I love it. 
The highlighter again is beautiful, gives that subtle glow without making you look like Edward Cullen in the sun! The powder is anti shine, making it the perfect powder to have in a palette. I know I will be using this the most for top ups when my nose starts getting shiny throughout the day! I cannot believe just how perfect this palette is, Makeup Revolution really have done it again in creating a highly impressive palette! I literally have not once been dissapointed by any of their products and I have tried a lot of things! 

I have this palette in the shade 'light' which is perfect for my pale skin. However the palette comes in 3 other shades which are light/medium, medium and medium/dark. Each palette has different shades for different skin tones meaning they are perfect for anyone! Again this palette has an absolutely amazing price tag of just £6.00! Absolutely crazy considering everything you get! This is going to be my number 1 go to palette and it will be living in my travel make up bag, in fact I think my travel make up bag will only need to consist of this and a lipstick now from now on!

Here are some quick swatches of the powder, bronzer, blush and highlighter. (The powder looks off colour because I may have accidentally had a bit of bronzer on my finger when I did the swatch, oops) The highlighter is more glowy than this it just doesn't really show up on the paper! 

Will you be buying this palette? Let me know what you think below!
