Lady Bug Says ... Make Up Buys

Evening Lovelies!
Hope you all had a great weekend. Sorry for the lack of posts, unfortunately life is very hectic at the moment! I am about a week behind on reading blog posts (so many to catch up on!) and loads that I want to write up. Hopefully things will calm down at work soon and I will have a bit more free time!
On Sunday I took part in the Pedal It Pink Half Marathon cycle ride. It was very difficult, but very rewarding! The event raised over £30k for Breast Cancer Campaign and I am very proud that I raised money and completed it! Thank you all for your thoughtful comments!
I thought today I would show you a few make up bits I have bought recently. Now I am by no means any kind of make up guru, but I do like to have a play around with it! So here is what I have been buying!

ELF Mineral Lipstick in Nicely Nude, £3.50
I really like this pinky nude colour, applied lightly it is perfect for a simple day look and layered up is a great, more intense pink.

Makeup Academy Eye shadows in Shade 3 & Shade 12, £1 each

These are them first items I have purchased from Makeup Academy and I must say I am impressed!

Love how shimmery these shadows are, am looking forward to trying out a smoky eye look with these - well once I have watched a few tutorials, I am rubbish at eye makeup!

ELF Shimmer Eye Liner in Boldly Bronzed, £1.50

This goes on so smoothly, no horrible dragging on your eye lids!

Sorry for the rubbish swatch, it is so sparkly. I am a sucker for anything vaguely shiny!

ELF Matte Finisher Top Coat, £1.50
Am really loving matte nails and am happy to report it doesn't leave your nails feeling like a chalk board!
Hopefully I will be bombarding you with new posts soon!
P.S. Don't forget you only have 2 days left to enter my 100 followers giveaway!


  1. lovely buys, those eyeshadows look amazing! what a bargain! x

  2. that lipstick shade looks lush :) and at £3.50 bargin!xx

  3. Well done you on the bike ride. The Elf stuff looks great and seems to be really well priced. Have been meaning to look into it for a while after reading about it on MSE. xx

  4. I'm really bad at looking at cheaper make-up. I always go straight for expensive ones when perhaps I shouldn't. You have some lovely stuff there.

    Well done on your cycle ride!


  5. Nice to see you back :)

    Congrats on the half marathon! You must be flipping knackered after all that cycling but what a good cause.

  6. I have never tried anything from e.l.f, but what you got looks lovely :) xx

  7. Ooh thanks for reminding me I was going to check out the ELF matte topcoat.. I'm intrigued by it!


  8. Bargains, didn't realise they did a matte coat.

    That lippie looks lovely.


  9. Oh I need that matte top coat.

    Superdrugs £1 range is ACE. I love their liquid eyeliners.

  10. ooh gorgeous buys! I need to buy some lipstick...!


  11. Those eye shadows look like my perfect choice of colour. I don’t own many single eye shadows, so it would be really nice to actually have something individual to throw in my bag, as opposed to a carrying a palette around x

  12. Ohh i have nicely nude, its lovely! :):)
    And im thinking of getting the matte top coat, looks lovely! :) xx

  13. Congrats on the half marathon! Well done on raising so much!
    I love the lipstick, and I have shade2 of the MUA shadows. I wear it all the time, it's such a good eyeshadow! x

  14. I really love the colors of those MUA eyeshadows, so pretty. I don't own any of their products but i'm tempted to check them out! xo
