Colourpop: The brand that's been recently making waves in the beauty world with their matte lipsticks and a range of eyeshadows to boot. Their prices are super low, as far as makeup goes, yet allegedly their matte liquid lipsticks are the same formula as Kylie's? YES PLEASE.
highlighter in 'Flexitarian'
The highlighter is probably my favourite of all the products I purchased from Colourpop. The formula is honestly such a dream, it's very soft and creamy and easy to either blend softly or to build up. Flexitarian is a soft rosy champagne colour, and although Colourpop has got so many colours that I'm sure are also gorgeous, this colour is stunning and I 100% recommend it.

Ultra Metallic lip in 'Zebra'
Ultra Matte lips in 'Trap'
We all know how much I love a good matte nude lip, and Trap has quickly become one of my favourites! Described on Colourpop's website as a dusty greige, this nude is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect amount of cool toned yet not too grey looking.
Get it here.
Ultra Matte Lips in 'Bumble'
I'm not a huge fan of red lipsticks, so I figured I'd give Bumble a go- a red that's not too red and described as a warm rose on their website. It was quite a bit more red then I was expecting, as it looks much more pink in the photos on their website, however I've really been loving this colour and wearing it quite a bit. I will say that the formula of this one seems quite weird- it goes almost flaky and crumbly when it dries- however I think I was just unlucky and got a bad batch as I've been impressed by the formula of the other two Ultra Matte Lips I purchased.

Ultra Matte Lips in 'Clueless'
Clueless is described as a dusty mauve on Colourpop's website, and like Bumble, it's quite unlike any other colour I own. I wasn't expecting to like this as much as the others, thinking that I wouldn't wear a deep dusty pink very much, however I've probably worn this colour the most! It's so pretty and I think it would suit nearly every skin tone.

Today is two years since ink dreaming was started! TWO YEARS! That's toddler age! ink dreaming is a toddler!
Quick little thank you to everyone who reads this blog, watches my videos, and has supported me these past two years- so much love for you all. Special mention to my wonderful mum who takes a lot of photos for me, and of course Anastasia who also takes a lot of the photos for this blog! We had to take the train into the city with the balloons on the day we took these and the balloons floated against the ceiling of the train for the trip, which earnt us a few looks- although that seems to be a lot of what blogging is, taking photos and talking to cameras in the midst of busy places where people sometimes stare. Although I've learnt to not mind that so much, and people mostly don't care what others are doing anyway.
Again, thank you all so much for your support and everything that's happened over the last two years. I've got some exciting things planned for this year and can't wait to see it all come together! (Hinting at another giveaway???)
Here's to two years and hopefully many more!
Happy holidays everyone!
My family and I had a wonderful small Christmas yesterday. I was very spoilt by everyone and am now in a food coma- my mum makes the best Christmas lunch! I hope you all had a wonderful time surrounded by loved ones as well.
I'll be taking a little break from the blog, youtube, and social media for this last week of the year, so I can spend a bit of time with family and friends, and do a bit of prep work for both school and the blog next year.
2016 has been such a whirlwind- admittedly the world has gone through some rough events, but hopefully we've all had a few good times as well?? Thank you all for your support this year- it really means the world to me :')
Here's to an even better 2017!
Much love and see you next year, Ella xxx
