Looking back over 2013

2013 has had many highs and lows for me, I've learnt a lot about myself, and I feel as though I finally know who I am. I've learnt who my real friends are, and I finally feel ready to mature as I turn 18 in February and will become an 'adult', as much as it scares me I need to be prepared for the responsibilities. So I thought I'd do a post about my year, mainly for me to look back at and see how my life and changed and what I got up to if I forget, but also to share some certain bits with you all.

I ♡ Drugstore Makeup Tag

I do like drugstore makeup, and I think there is some great products out there, many that don't get as much recognition as they deserve. I thought I would actually do this tag, I feel as though I haven't done a tag in forever so here it goes...

Tag || I heart summer

I haven't done a tag since the early days of SColvinBeauty so I thought why not have a throwback to the early days..

London IMATS 2013 haul


London IMATS 2013

Hello! after a very long day on my feet I am sadly home from the IMATS. If I had the time (or money) I could have easily gone back tomorrow. It was my first ever time at the IMATS and I loved every second, seriously if you're thinking of going tomorrow or to any IMATS in the future do it, I loved everything and I can't wait till next year, I'm going to book a hotel for the night so I don't have to worry about the hassle of transport. Here's some photos I took...

Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL Ultra Brights Raspberry Rebel Review

Being a lover of hair dye I was really excited to try this hair dye when I saw it in my local Boots store. So I brought two boxes of the Schwarzkopf  Live Color XXL Ultra Brights hair dye in the shade Raspberry Rebel. In the box was an easy squeeze tube, gloves, instructions and two sachets of conditioner.

Directions Lilac Hair Dye Review

 Last Monday evening I got bored of my platinum/white hair and decided to go for something different, so being the constant hair colour changing teenager I am am I decided to go for lilac because I had a couple of tubs of it in my dye collection. So following the instructions I put it on (well my mum did) and I left it on for about an hour. It suggests 15-30 minutes but I left it on for longer to get a more intense colour. Here's my result...

Hayley Williams Still Into You Outfit

I have been into Paramore for years now, I've always found the lyrics amazing, so relatable and understandable. So when I saw they had released a new song and video, Still Into You, I knew it was going to be good, I just didn't realise how addicted I would get. I literally have had this song stuck in my head for ages now. It's so catchy. Here's the video..

Happy Birthday SColvinBeauty

It really does seem like only yesterday I began to write my own little part of the web, but already it's been a year. I didn't know what to do to celebrate, so I thought I would take my time to write a little thank you to my readers...

BehaveBox Review

A few weeks ago I saw that the lovely Allie from was looking for bloggers for her new idea she had for her website. When I saw this I put my details down, and truthfully didn't expect to hear anything back. But a few days later I got an email telling me about the idea, which was a monthly box full of a selection of 4-6 on trend items of jewellery. Then earlier this week, I received my box of goodies through the post, I was so excited to open it!

Pokemon Ball Nail Art Tutorial

Lately I seem to have gone cartoon mad, and I've fallen in love with Pokemon again! When I was growing up I had a massive collection of Pokemon cards, I had about 5 of each card. Pokemon was the best. Anyway I decided to look up some Pokemon nail art ideas, I came across Pokemon ball nails, so I had to try them. I loved it so much I thought I'd share with you how I done it.

I'm still alive

Hello everyone, hope you're all ok :)

Sorry I've haven't been posting lately, my laptop screen died so it's off on repairs. But I was able to do this little post from the app on my phone. But with being absent means I've brought lots of things to do posts on from Barry M, MAC, Sigma, Urban Decay and a few more. I also died my hair purple for a few days, I will attach some photos. But I'm back to blonde now :) I get bored of a colour so fast!

Horror films

I'm sure most of my readers know, I am a huge horror film addict. Me and my boyfriend Harry are always watching them (I'm too scared to watch them alone, haha) but I really do love them, I guess I must get it from my dad as my mum hates them. 

The picture above is my horror film collection, I know there's not many there but I recently sold most of the ones I had. I don't know the reason behind this post I suppose I wanted to do a different type of post.

January Favourites- Lips

I can't believe it's already the end of January, 2013 seems to be flying by already! Over the next couple of days I will have all my favourites up from January, so to start with I'll do lips.

I've only recently started trying different lip products, I actually used to shove some lip balm on my lips and they where done, but now I feel naked without something on my lips. So these are the lip products I've been loving throughout the month...

Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Phenomena review

I first mentioned this product in my Illamasqua haul a few weeks ago. I love cream shadows, I wear them near enough everyday. So when I saw this silver one in the Illamasqua sale for only £5 I had to pick it up.

It's called Liguid Metal and the shade is called Phenomena.
I really like the shade and the packaging, I think all Illamasqua packaging seems to look so sleek, 
modern and catches my eye. As for the colour it's really nice, it's so pigmented.
The two pictures below show the products on the eye, sorry they're not very clear from my phone.

Updated make up collection & storage

Hello everyone, hope all my UK readers are loving the snow, I am! As long as I have no where to travel to it's fun but when I have sixth form it can be a nightmare. 

Over the past couple of weeks I've been busy replacing everything in my room like painting the walls, new carpet and all new furniture so expect an updated room tour soon as well. It's been an expensive time for my poor mums purse haha, but I'm really happy with the outcome.

Today I wanted to do an updated make up storage as I've got rid of those horrible plastic storage drawers that where taking up so much room. You can see my old storage hereI wanted to get Muji storage but all the ones I wanted where out of stock so I decided to look into other acrylic drawers. I found some lovely ones in Ryman's, Homebase and Amazon which I have brought and it's made my collection look nicer.
Warning: this post will contain lots of images haha

Illamasqua Haul

I had a very exciting delivery from Illamasqua arrive yesterday evening. I have never tried any Illamasqua products before as there are no counters nearby me and I get worried buying make up online as I like to see the colours in person. Anyway when I saw that Illamasqua had a sale with most the products at only £5 I had to place an order. Here's what I got..

Khroma Beauty- Khloe's Kardazzle

Hello everyone, hope your all ok. I have a review of a new palette I purchased a few days ago...

I am a bit of a Kardashian fan, I find the show funny and I think they always seem to look glamorous with flawless make up. So when I heard Kourtney, Kim and Khloe where releasing a make up range I thought well that's defiantly worth a try.

Hello everyone, sorry for my recent absence from my blog I've been busy with redecorating my bedroom, sixth form and my seizures have been becoming daily so finding time to sit down and write a post had been hard. But today I will get a few done.

First off I wanted to show you a few things I've brought recently. I must admit I've been bad with spending, I just wanted to try out lots of new things. My excuse is "I'm a blogger, I have to try these products out" haha. Here's just some of what I've brought...
