Palette Porn | Juvia's Place : The Masquerade Mini


My life follows this exact pattern: 

Have a major operation > Buy a Juvia's Place palette as a treat to myself for not dying > Weep in joy at how beautiful it is > When the drugs wear off, weep in despair at how poor I am and ask the question 'What is my life?' on repeat 23 times a day. 

Judging from this oh-so-predictive life cycle / behaviour of mine, I'm guessing you already know why I'm here writing this post today - so let's get down to it. The palette I chose this time, in my latest 'defiance-of-death, post-op' celebration [previously, I went for the Juvia's Place  Saharan Palette] was the Juvia's Place Masquerade Mini Palette and boyyyyy is she a pigmented beast. A pigmented sexy beast.

I mean rly. Look at dem swatches, tho. The colour pay-off is absolutely insane and I am in LOVE with the brighter, top half of the palette; as I've never really owned anything quite so vivid and bright as these shades in all my days.

As I noted with The Saharan, the quality of the shadows in his palette is second to none; they apply beautifully with an almost creamy formula - and some of the metallic shades [such as Casablanca, Zola and Bori] literally took my breath away as I swatched them. You can only imagine the amount of squealing and over-excited swearing that went down in my room when I was furiously swiping these swatches across me arm.

The pans are pretty big, the packaging is striking AF [& inspires you to get creative with colour from-the-get-go] and the shadows themselves are some of the best quality powders I've ever tried. They feel soft, creamy and gentle on the skin; not like some of the palettes I've tried from other brands in my younger life that were dead itchy and irritating on the skin, with that infamous chalky / scratchy texture everyone loves so much. NOT.

The only disappointing pan in this 16 shade palette is Zobo - which although blends really well etc, seems to be the least pigmented and takes the most work to get a decent colour pay-off. The rest of the mattes don't seem to have this problem [and the metallics certainly don't, it's like a pigment party when you stick ya finger into one of them!] but for some reason, Zobo seems to have misplaced its invite to said pigment party. But it's okay, I ain't even mad.

I'm really, RLY hoping I don't have to have another operation for a while... so I probs won't be buying another Juvia's Place palette any time soon. But that's okay - Natwest will thank me, I wanna wait till they bring out some slightly different & more varied shades before splashing out for another one anywayyy and I totes have my eyes on Desert Dusk, most of Colourpop's website and the Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts palette... so I got plenty to bankrupt myself with yet. Adulting is so cool.

Have you tried anything from Juvia's Place before? Would you buy this palette? What's your favourite shade?

5 of the WORST Places I've Been - 10/10 WOULD NOT Recommend For A Date / To Maintain Your Relationship*


Much as I've been to some beautiful places in my life [Mykonos, Olu Deniz, Asda Smithdown Road and Poundland .... to name just a few] there's a few that stand out in my mind as the worst locations I've ever been to and should be avoided at all costs. Especially if you're thinking of taking someone you're dating there ... or maintaining your existing relationship after visiting said location. Let's name and very much shame.

5 of the WORST Places I've Been - 10/10 WOULD NOT Recommend For A Date / To Maintain Your Relationship Lovelaughslipstick Blog

Post Office, Liverpool One
I have to kick off with this one, because it is probably the worst place to ever step foot in in the North West.  Even my Mum agrees, so there.

Yes, the queue is abnormally long & you will spend the rest of your life in there. Yes, there are only like, 2 staff on during peak hours and everyone's pure kicking off. Yes, there are some very debatable characters in the queue [often smacked off their tits on crack] yelling out all kinds of obscenities and generally terrifying everyone around you. And yes, guaranteed there will be someone in said queue of doom who absolutely HUM DINGS and it makes you gag & die inside. 

But the worst part of this traumatic experience is the heat. Oh bby Yeezus. If you go in Summer, you're pretty much going to die in there. Even if you go in Winter, when you've got your proper big coat on and it's approx -23 degrees outside, the minute you climb up them stupidly steep stairs [or take the lift and get judged by old people] and into Royal Mail's fiery pits of hell you'll be sweating buckets & praying to all that is holy that your deodorant can hold its own against such evil extremities.

The number of relationships I've seen crumble apart waiting in that queue... The patience tested by the sweltering conditions, farts and frustration lingering in the air. Pls avoid. Don't think it's safe on a date to say 'Oh can we just nip in the Post Office for two seconds whilst I post this return back to ASOS? I literally won't be a minute' because all that is lies and you won't be the same person you were before your time in there. But you'll most likely have lost your date to heat, exhaustion or spontaneous combustion.

The Aldi in Manchester Arndale
There's just something about the lighting in that place that sends me west and gives me headaches coupled with nausea, unbridled anger and complementary rage.

The Sewage Works
Yes, I'm aware that this wouldn't ever be a place you'd suggest to a potential lover as a date location... but also... would you recommend it as a school trip destination? No? Because my Primary School did. Off we went - a bunch of happy 7 year olds, before our souls were destroyed by North West Water and tonnes of sh*te. The stuff you saw floating in dat water, though.

I vividly recall a moment where this man giving us the grand tour of the facilities said 'WHO WANTS TO SEE SOME POOOOOOOOOO?' and regardless of what the answer was, pulled open this trap door to reveal literally mountains of turd & a smell that's ingrained in my mind forever. 0/10

A&E 
A test of resilience, patience, sanity and relationships at its finest. I've seen some of the maddest stuff go on in A&E - couples who've had HUGE rows that've gone wrong [note that time I sat in there from 10pm at night to 7am the following morning, with a man who's wife had hit him in the head with an axe - or the drunk man who just took his pants off and pooed on the floor] and been sat chillin having my blood taken with the police next to me, with a raging criminal handcuffed to them [and to the chair] having his done too. Brilliant

It's truly terrifying in there sometimes, and to all the people who go there when it's not an emergency and just have a cough or something ... why would you do that to yourself?!

Carlito's Pizza
This delightful local establishment does takeaway, so one night when I was living in halls at Uni and we were all a bit boozed up post-club, we ordered food from our boy Carlito. I eagerly opened my box of chips and cheese - accidentally upside down - only to find a raging pile of pubes in the cheese. And when I rang the takeaway, obv drunk, to complain; the man on the other end of line said 'Does it make you horny?'

No further explanatory words needed as to why this destroys potentially romantic vibes hahahahaha.

This is a very tongue in cheek account of some of the worst places [and situations] I've found myself in; whereby relationships would [and in some cases, have been!] pushed to their limits; by poo, heat, smackheads and pubic hair. I'm sure no matter where you're at in the dating game - whether you're looking for something long term or in the more adult dating mindset, you'll have things a lot more figured out than I do in my general adult life, but there's a few pointers for ya anyway qweens. 

If you're looking for loveeeee or someone to share these horrific adventures with, online dating could be the place to track down bae. These Guernsey dating sites and Sheffield dating sites may be of interest to you in beginning your romantic journey - or maybe click on this next link if you're instead looking to date Birmingham singles instead. Alternatively, sites such as this one can help initiate dating in Suffolk and single men in Central can use / be located on this one! Scroll away, ladies and gents.

Home Inspo | Budget Interior Buys*


My rented accommodation is furnished, meaning that I own neither it or the stuff inside it. Milennial probz - though tbf, I had no desire to be branded the owner of that rancid mattress I used to have & it's assortment of unknown stains. *Shudder* Anyway, I decided that over Christmas last year, I wanted to change that... and actually own some furniture; rather than simply being the owner of all the makeups & an extortionate amount of debt. 

I've been gradually making changes in the home, starting with my bedroom first of all; investing in budget interior decorations and furniture to make this flat that isn't technically mine, more of a home. Here's a few bits I've picked up so far - I'll do more photos when it's actually complete, like. It still looks a bit like a crackden at the moment.

I've been absolutely hammering Dunelm when it comes to picking up cheap home furnishings [and blog photo props] recently. Their huge range of accessories, cushions, candles, artificial flowers and furniture - plus their totes babein' price tags, have got me shook. I've picked up lamp shades, vases, flowers and photo frames like a woman possessed from their online store. 

A couple of bits that really add some pretty, cozy touches to ma lovenest [except no lovin' happens in it, just raging powernaps & cheese consumption] are my new pink peonies - which I've stood in a £3 B&Q glass vase on the super chic [and reduced] white dressing table I got from Wayfair from Santa... and similarly, my lil Dunelm bouquet of white roses in a square vase; which I've stood on my 'oh-so-basic-blogger' Ikea Alex Drawers. All these decorations were dead cheap, but look really effective and luxurious in my new 'n' improved interior aesthetic.

Home Interiors, Budget Homeware Picks, Lovelaughslipstick Blog

One of the bits I'm most proud of in my sudden urge to adult, is this vase type invention I made. See, I'm a bit of a bellend and I don't understand measurements or make any attempt to size things up before I order them... so in my several Dunelm hauls of late, I've accidentally ended up with about 2324 vases - ALL OF WHICH ARE THE WRONG BLOODY SIZE FOR WHAT I NEEDED. I ordered this fish bowl vase to pop ma peonies in for example, but it turned out to be a pure whopper

I decided to put my cream flower fairy lights in it, to see what they looked like ... and whaddya know, I've made a DIY lamp! Waste of money, I think not!! I picked up these fairy lights from B&M Bargains aaaages ago for about a quid; their home section is pretty immense too.

Home Interiors, Budget Homeware Picks, Lovelaughslipstick Blog

George at Asda, Poundland, Etsy, Wilko and New Look are another few of my faves when it comes picking up affordable yet unique interior decorations - as well as my main bae eBay; of course. I picked up some of these pink & rose gold tumblers on there the other week, which I've used to store my makeup brushes  in on my dresser - and look dead bloody nice actually, if I do say so myself!

Home Interiors, Budget Homeware Picks, Lovelaughslipstick Blog

I'm now on a mission to find ultra glam - yet affordable - lamp shades / lanterns; particularly one for my master bedroom [aka lack-of-lovenest] to add a little flare of Insta famous sophistication / aesthetic to my interiors. Something a little like this UK made roof lantern, perhaps? I'm undecided - and I think getting a new bed is probably of a higher priority than posho lights... as as I've explained before, the previous residents of my flat really liked to 'cuddle' and as a result, it's all caved in / rickety AF / structurally unsafe. Ah, life. 

Home Interiors, Budget Homeware Picks, Lovelaughslipstick Blog

If you're looking to refresh or change up your home interiors, there's plenty of fab stores, sales and online retailers who can help you achieve this on the cheap. Whilst still looking high end and glam AF, obv. I might whack a few other home interior posts up on the old blog over the next few weeks, to show you a little more what I mean. And to motivate me to actually clean up, purely for the blog photos!

Have you shopped at any of these places before? Where's your favourite piece of homeware from?

Gradually Overcoming My Gollum-Like Exterior | Skinny Tan Body Glow*


I've raved about this shiz before, but here's a quick reminder that there is no time of the year better than the present to pick up a bottle of this Skinny Tan gradual tanning lotion. Seriously

It's Winter, it's GRIM [you can recap on why I hate the colder months of the year here] and if you're anything like me, your skin will have been covered up for weeks in feeble attempts to keep warm - and as a result of said imprisonment, will be a bit lot on the pasty side of life. I look like the walking dead crossed with a cave troll. With a side order of middle earth dwelling tossed in the mix for grim measure.

Skinny Tan Body Glow Gradual Moisturiser in Medium, Lovelaughslipstick Blog

I love this Body Glow* from Skinny Tan's collection because of how easy it is to use. It's, in essence, a tinted moisturiser. It doesn't smell like those tinted moisturisers of yore [lol remember how bad old school Holiday Skin used to stink?] and when you put it on, it develops naturally and gradually - so you won't end up with mad streaks or a terrifying Donald Trump orange / terracotta exterior. It's a great shout for those of you new to the tanning game and a little nervous of resembling a walking orange peel - and for us seasoned tanners, it's a great way of keeping ya levels of bronze up inbetween Fake Tan Fridays

Skinny Tan Body Glow Gradual Moisturiser in Medium, Lovelaughslipstick Blog

Skinny Tan Body Glow comes in shades Light and Medium [so maybe kick off losing your tanning v-plates using Light, if you're a bit nervous] and this whopping huge bottle costs just £7.99. Not only does it take the edge off Winter by giving your complexion a glow, it's also an excellent daily moisturiser; helping keep your skin nourished during the colder months - as well as preventing us from looking like Golem from Lord Of The Rings [or Dobby, if you're a Potterhead.] It's vegan, cruelty free and packed full of goodness too - so you can feel as good as you look; pampering your skin safe in the knowledge that no fluffy pets were harmed during its production. Yaaaaaaas Skinny Tan!

Relationships & Dating : A-Z Fun*


Alphabet dating. You ever tried it? No, it's not dating / banging your way through from Adam - Zachary [or Amy to Zara] you filthy scoundrel [though yeno, that could potentially be fun]  ... or some pure wild sex game. It's something you can do at any stage of a relationship - perhaps when you're first dating, or even to spice things up a little if you're in a longer term situation. Again, this doesn't mean sex wise [unless you want it to, of course] no matter how risqué this prelude may sound.

No, alphabet dating is something as innocent and pure as picking a new date night idea every week / couple of weeks / a month; the first idea being an activity that begins with an 'A' and the last obv beginning with a 'Z.' Although, there are obviously several sexy activities that spring to mind straight away for 'A' thanks to the utter filth we chat in the girls' group chat... so if you wanna kick off your activities with Anal then go wild. Within bumhole reason.

Here's a few ideas for ya, to inspire you with your very own A-Z of Date Night Ideas. Another fun twist with alphabet dating can be alternating between who picks; so the first person picks the 'A' activity and then the second person in the couple picks the 'B' and so on. So that both people in the relationship get a choice & the pressure of deciding is split equally between you both!

No matter where you're at in your dating story [even if you're in the no strings dating frame of mind at the moment] you can totes adapt & apply the A-Z of romance to your situation. It's definitely a bit of fun to plan with [or without] your partner - and a great icebreaker for the first few dates, when you're learning what the other person enjoys. Lets just hope they don't kick off with anal on the first date, hey!

Online dating is a huge part of how we meet people these days - with some really great resources on the web, bringing like-minded people together to meet. Gloucester dating sites are a popular choice with those of you in the southern side of the UK when meeting potential baes - with dating in Shropshire following a similar trend. This Suffolk dating site may be of interest to any of you based down that way - and the following links also promise to find love for single women in Glasgow and those looking to date Staffordshire singles.

SNIFF UP | My Latest Perfume Pick is a WORLDIE


After Christmas, I lost my sh*t a bit and ordered ALL OF THE THINGS in the sales [and also not in the sales.] Whilst I am regretting my impulsive & rather knobbish ways now, I did pick up some right nice stuff during this irresponsible time in my life... one item from these knob hauling sessions [if this reads like I've been hauling literal knobs and having several of them, pls be aware that I have been celibate for well over a year and chance of real life pennis would be a fine thing] that I'm especially happy with being this bottle of Hugo Boss - The Scent, For Her perfume. Which you need to sniff. Immediately.

Hugo Boss - The Scent, For Her Eau De Parfum Review Lovelaughslipstick Blog

I had a sample of this scent from somewhere [don't ask me where from like, probably included in a Boots order or something, when I do my regular bulk order of about 3,000 Rimmel Translucent Powders] which I decided to wear on Christmas Day & holy sh*tcakes I fell in love with it almost immediately. Although I wear a lot of very sweet, floral scents day-to-day; I rly enjoy musky, dark fragrances too - I adore men's aftershave for this reason, and some of the more manly smells you get sometimes using fabric conditioner. And this eau de parfum incorporates floral sweetness with a musky, masculine edge perfectly. It's erotic AF. And from using that one tiny tube, on one day of the year; I knew it had to be mine.

Hugo Boss - The Scent, For Her Eau De Parfum Review Lovelaughslipstick Blog
Hugo Boss - The Scent, For Her Eau De Parfum Review Lovelaughslipstick Blog

I ordered my Hugo Boss via Fragrance Direct, where it's on offer for £38.95; rather than the RRP of £47 you'll pay elsewhere. Cos yeno, I'm tight AF. But you can pick it up at Debenhams if you want dem Beauty Club Points, or Boots if you have Advantage Card Points to use up / offers to take advantage of.

Top Notes: Honeyed Peach, Freesia
Heart Notes: Osmanthus Flower
Base Notes: Cocoa
My Notes: Fit

Have you smelt this gorgeous new fragrance yet? Did you get any perfume for / over Christmas? What's your signature scent?

Palette Porn | Makeup Revolution's Reloaded Newtrals 2 Palette


Oh MY DAYS gang. I have found THE most pigmented, on-point and affordable eyeshadow palette - possibly of all time... 

It legit only arrived with me yesterday, but after the responses I had to it on Instagram and Twitter which confirmed that it was not just me who was SHOOK by it [so many of you commented & said you'd now ordered it too after I featured it... soz in advance to all your banks] I wanted to get this post out there ASAP. 

This is Makeup Revolution's Reloaded Newtrals 2 Palette, my new bae, the love of my life and only £4. FOUR ENGLISH POUNDS. Even I, as the world's biggest tramp / budget blogger can't argue with that. Lemme show you why it's such fantastic value for money, in a post which will probably contain lots of over-excited swearing / sexual adjectives and will defo be on the photo-heavy side. But you need to see this

The palette is beautifully designed and totes minimal looking; with large square pans packed with 15 pigmented AF powder eyeshadows. There's a stunning blend of warm toned mattes & shimmers included; many of which make me feel this palette is a dead ringer for some of the newer Huda Beauty palettes - namely Mauve Obsessions or Desert Dusk; due to the shimmers. I, thanks to my boy Santa, now own Mauve Obsessions and can confirm that the shades and formula of the shadows in both palettes are extremely similar - the only noticeable differences between them being the size of the palette itself [MO is tiinnnyyyy] and of course; the price.

There's a tiny bit of fall-out on some of the shades [but yeno, problem solved if ya just tap it off gals] but the majority of them - espesh the shimmers - are super buttery & creamy and have the most intense colour pay-off ever. I'd compare them to the  formula of the Colourpop Yes Please! palette and, of course, my gal Huda Beauty's Mauve Obsessions palette; as I mentioned before.

For legitimately just £4 - for fifteen shades [!!!!] - you can't go wrong with this palette. Just very, very right. There are actually another three palettes in this new Reloaded collection too yeno; all of which I also now need to collect - like Pokémon, I've gotta catch em all! One's a raging dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette [The MUR Iconic Fever Palette, £4] and the other are MUR's takes on the infamous Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance and Subculture palettes [The MUR Iconic Vitality Palette and Iconic Division Palette, £4 each.] CAN'T COPE.

Makeup Revolution / Tam Beauty have truly outdone themselves with these bangin' lil palettes; I'm so impressed. I think this is one of the best palettes I've tried of theirs to date tbh - though there will be others featured in this new Palette Porn series I apparently seem to have embarked on. Because I can't stop spending.

Makeup Revolution's Reloaded Newtrals 2 Palette Review and Swatches Lovelaughslipstick Blog

Have you got your hands on this palette - or any of the other Reloaded ones yet? As far as I'm aware, you can pick these lil beauts up in Superdrug stores too; so if you don't fancy waiting about for the postman to deliver one to you, grab yer Ugg Boots and get on the bus to town now, qweens!
