 Acrylic Makeup Storage 28 Holes (£6.29 here) - Okay, so this isn't very autumn themed at all... however come every September I seem to become obsessed with lipstick, both rich berry shades and deeper nude shades, so what perfect way to display my favourite shades than this tiered storage. What I especially like about this holder is that it contains both circular and square holes, meaning it will hold most lipsticks unlike storage holder I've used in the past. I just know this would look amazing on my dressing table filled with my favourite autumnal lipsticks!

W7 Brown Queen Eyeshadow Palette (£3.95 here) - So W7 have gone and done it again by releasing another amazing looking eyeshadow palette at a totally bargain price! This is of course a very Bobbi Brown inspired palette with the chic brown packaging and row of shimmering smokey eye neutrals and if past W7 palettes are anything to go by they will be buttery soft and blendable. This would be seriously perfect for Autumn!

Osmo Intensive Deep Repair Conditioning Hair Mask (£4.85 here) - As we come into slightly colder months my hair definitely requires more hydration and TLC, especially the ends! So my favourite deep conditioning mask will have to be purchased (I don't find I need it in summer) as it was a life saver for my hair last winter. The conditioner is much thicker than standard ones and really grabs onto wet hair instead of slipping over it and really moisturises the ends of the hair. It also smells of a heavenly vanilla scent and has an interesting iridescence to it - both nice touches. Favourite conditioner ever basically!

Sally Hansen Nail Polish (£2.50 each here) - Sally Hansen do nail polish well and so when I came across this listing I was pretty pleased to see lots of shades I'd never seen before. Here I've just picked out two of my favourite shades that would be ideal for Autumn - 'Pennies for Heaven' and 'Wine Not'. I love both the shade names and rich tones to these... just look at that wine shade! I will certainly be updating my autumn nail polish stash with these very soon.

Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama Kit in Sumptuous Gold (£1.50 here) - Another eyeshadow palette here that I instantly snapped up after spotting the bargain £1.50 price tag. This is normally £8.99 in Boots! With 4 shades that I know I'll use I just had to have it... I will of course be using it straight away but them middle two shades are screaming autumnal smokey eyes to me! Total bargain buy! 

I hope you've enjoyed yet another eBay Bargains post - the first series I've managed to keep up!

Unique Eyeshadow Crayons

Along side my love of eyeshadow palettes I've come to realise I'm partial to an eye crayon, or 30. Yes, I have quite the collection and love them all dearly. So the other day I thought I'd go swatch crazy, comparing them all and picking out the most unique shades I own... as who doesn't love a dazzling unique eyeshadow shade? 

Below are 5 eye crayons that made the cut that not only are great quality but offer something different in shade and tone and really do stand out on the eyes. Hope you find something new to snap up! 

metallic-eye-crayons 

Ciate Eye Chalk 'Marshmallow' - First up the lightest in shade of my 5 picks with this stunning frosted pink shade that has a subtle shimmer running through it. This is ideal for highlighting the inner corners of the eyes and as it has some grip when first applied it works well as a base all over the lid for metallic eyeshadows. This does have a slight shimmer around the eyes problem in the heat but on normal days it looks lovely to finish off and highlight the eyes. Yes, it is a little pricey for a single eyeshadow product but as it can be used for a few things I think it's worth it! (Available from the Ciate website here for £14.00)

Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow 'Charming Champagne' - Okay, so I'm going to be highly annoying here and tell you that this product was actually Limited Edition and is no longer available. So please try not to look at the swatch for too long and see how beautiful the shade is! So for that reason I won't go in to detail about it... but what I will say is that Kiko offer so many high quality products and had a permanent line of Long Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks here for £6.90. These are some of the creamiest eyeshadow crayons I've come across and once dry they stay all day without budging!

Bourjois Colorband 2-in-1 Eyeshadow & Liner 'Mauve Baroque' - On to a beautiful and unique mauve shade now that you don't find very often on the high street. This is just a stunning shade that will suit all eye colours and skin shades, adding depth to the eyes. As for the texture the crayon glides over the eyes and is easily blended out with a fluffy blending brush or fingers. It also works well with other cream eyeshadows and stays put literally to the end of the day. This is certainly one to wear alone all over the lid for a easy but pretty eye look. However I'm not convinced it could be used as a liner due to the size of it! Aside from that I just LOVE this unique shade. In fact I love the entire collection! (Available at Boots here for £5.99)

Etude House Bling Bling Eye Stick 'Golden Tail Star' - If you are looking for a true bright gold eyeshadow to really dazzle on the eyes then look no further than this little beauty. This has been one of my favourite finds of 2015 so far as it's unlike any other gold shadow I own in how bright and light reflective it is. Another shade that is perfect for dabbing and blending at the inner corners of the eyes, but also for all over the lid with a more natural brown shade to the crease. Plus it's a totally bargain! (Available on eBay here for £3.33 with free p&p!) 

Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick 'Trespassing Taupe' - When it comes to eyeshadow crayons the market is sorely lacking matte shades but thankfully Rimmel have quite a few that are absolutely perfect in every way! This is easily my favourite matte shade from Rimmel as it's one of those shades that looks amazing alone all over the eyes as a  rich wash of colour; smokey and ideal for Autumn. Though I also find it great as a base/eyeshadow primer for a true smokey eye as when it's first applied it has a tacky feel which grips eyeshadows, both powder and cream extremely well. Another versatile shade that I'd recommend to everyone! (Available at Boots here for £4.49) 

I'd love to know your favourite eye crayon from my picks/swatches and if you have any eyeshadow crayon recommendations for me - especially more matte shades!

My Top 5 Vloggers To Watch

See comments
top-5-vloggers-to-watch 

Today I thought I'd write more of a lifestyle type of post on vloggers I love to watch. I love watching vlogs and getting a glimpse into people's lives and it's definitely part of my daily routine; I love getting into bed and catching up on a few videos before sleep. 

So instead of just naming the popular Youtubers I watch I thought I'd share with you a few vloggers that maybe aren't as popular so that you can hopefully discover something new!

 Okay, so the Michalak's are popular, very popular! However I had to include them as they are my favourite Sunday watch. With one weekly vlog going up on a Sunday, detailing their week it's more like a series than a vlog, especially with the amazing editing and music to go along side it. Hannah and Stef are truly such a creative couple and their little family is a joy to watch.

Another couple-y kind of vlog here but a bi-weekly one with the stunning Ghee (obsessed with her frequent hair changes!) and her husband. Another one that is well edited and a joy to watch as they are so happy and carefree. I also love their little dogs Millie & Milo - very cute!

I came across Monami Frost last month is a Marie Claire article and instantly looked her up on Youtube. Originally from Latvia she now lives in Liverpool with her tattoo artist husband and little girl. Not only do they come across as super positive people there is just so much love and fun. A bit obsessed with their vlogs right now!

I first followed the lovely Simone through her beauty blog many years ago. She's since started a Youtube channel and vlogs about her life in Dubai as an expat (she's Irish). Simone documents family life, weekends, eating out and you can even get your 'Lollipop26' fix as Laura often pops up in her vlogs. With an interesting location and Simone's love of makeup I love to keep up with her vlogs!

 Sooo, Lauren is another popular Youtuber and one most of you are probably aware of for her makeup videos but I thought I'd still include her as I love when she includes a random vlog of her life in Australia with her oh so attractive boyfriend! Though absolutely stunning, Lauren is very down to earth and is enjoyable to watch. I'd also highly recommend her beauty videos if you haven't watched any. 


So there you have it, my favourite vloggers that are my main source of procrastination when I should be doing work! 


If you have any favourite not so popular vloggers I'd love for you to include their link in the comments for me to check out.
