I'm not a fan, they look lovely on others but I've tried them a couple of times and they come unstuck in one of the corners before the end of the night.

Yes, but I never really stick to that rule.

Cheryl Cole of course. And Millie Mackintosh from Made In Chelsea always looks flawless and amazing.

Sorry about the lack of photos in this post but I didn't really know what to choose to show photo's of. If you want to tag yourselves then feel free but be sure to leave me a comment below with the link so I can have a little nosey. I hope you enjoyed and thank you for reading xxx


  1. I totally agree that Millie Mackintosh is totally flawless! What do you think of the No.7 moisturiser btw? :) xx

    1. I think Tanya Burr does her makeup a lot, do you watch her YouTube tutorials she's amazing! I like the moisturiser but can't help feeling like I might need the dry/normal one for winter time and that one for the summer. But it is nice, it smells nice and it sinks in really quickly and doesn't feel sticky or heavy. I might get the normal/dry night cream and keep the normal/oily for day time xxxx
