Recent Beauty Purchases

Hey guys!!

So I know yet again, I have been realllllllllllllly bad when it comes to blogging. I think I need to get organized and schedule and plan posts when I feel inspired. Anyways. I have bought a few things recently and I wanted to share!

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer -
I haven't used a primer in years and when I did I think it was some cheap Gosh one that actually dried out my skin. I have heard a some really good things about Smashbox recently and was so excited when I saw they did a hydrating version of their primer. I have only tried this once of my face, and let me tell you it lives up to it's claims to be hydrating. Obviously I've only used it once and so I will probably do a review in the future.

Rimmel 25 Hour Foundation - 
I have been looking for an affordable long wearing foundation. This might have to be the best foundation from Boots I've tried since the Rimmel wake me up foundation. This is very long wearing and their lightest shade is perfect for me when I haven't fake tanned. Review should be coming soon !! :)

Mac Lipstick In Mehr - 
I have been looking for a wearable Kylie Jenner lip colour. I nearly went for Mac Velvet Teddy but I think it's way to much on the brown side for me. This lip colour has more pink in it, I just need to find a lip pencil to go with this shade. Anyone know a good match?

Rimmel Argan Oil Mascara -
I still haven't found my perfect mascara (sad beauty obsession) I was recommended this mascara by a friend, so far so good. This one doesn't seem to clump like other mascara's I've tried.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light - 
I decided to change up my daily moisturizer and saw this advertised. This is meant to keep your skin moisturized for 24 hours and to boost the water levels (or something like that) I have very dry skin and so anything that keeps my makeup looking fresh is a must. I think this will work well with the Smashbox primer,

What have you bought recently?

Affordable, Longlasting Gel Eyeliner | First Impressions

Hey guys!!
I have been on the lookout for a long lasting eyeliner, I have tried brands from Mac to Collection 2000. For some reason the eyeliners tend to smudge off whilst I apply or halfway throughout the day, which is awful!  I have heard great things recently about the brand sold at Boots called Seventeen and so took the chance to try out their gel eyeliner.

As you can see this post is a "first impression" as I wanted to share this product asap yet I haven't used it for long enough for a review (can you tell I'm honest to my readers?!) ;). I have applied the eyeliner with a Mac 266 line define brush to make out a winged liner look. I can tell you the formulation was really smooth compared to the Maybelline and Loreal gel eyeliners I've used. Very impressed! I tried a line of the product on the back of my hand before applying the eyeliner to my eyes and let me tell you it took two makeup remover pads to take the stuff off. It literally didn't want to budge.

For me a eyeliner needs to include 3 things. A deep black line, smooth consistency and long to be wearing. This product to seems to have all 3!!
 I recommend you try this if you're on a budget, or not :)

Making My Blog Public!

So, firstly - sorry I have been a bit sparse with my blogging. I have so many ideas bouncing around in my head! But when I switch on my laptop to write or attempt to take pictures - I feel that nothing is good enough.

To motivate myself to keep up with my schedule, I have decided to share "Laura Thinks About" with my friends and publicly post the link on my Instagram. 
This is a massive deal for me, I have kept my blog private for nearly 2 years. Some of my friends now have blogs, so I'll include their links and it would be amazing if you checked them out!! 
I was feeling really anxious about sharing my blog, but I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. I thought I would cringe at people commenting on my writing, but everyone's been really nice! 

Do your friends and family know about your blog?!

Check out my friends blogs :)....
