Make up wishlist - Spring 2016

I think everyone will agree there is make up products out there that you always look at it he shops but their just so much money you can 't keep buying make up, yes I fell you, I have that problem as well. So today I am going to do my make up wishlist. I will include how much every product I only wish I could have is and where you can buy it from. Enjoy!

Mac lipstick in the shade Velvet Teddy:
I am so jealous of anyone who already shown this, it is the most perfect deep nude colour lipstick I have ever seen and I would love to own. You can buy it in Mac, obviously, or Debenhams or  John Lewis for £15.50.

Mac Boldly Bare lip liner:
I think it a stunning colour which would be in with a good home in my make up bag! It costs £12.50 which is one of the cheapest things on this list but is still price for a lip liner. All the review are very positive and saying it is a lovely suttle liner.

Kylie lip kit in the shade Candy K:
If I am right this is not available in the UK (you lucky Americans!) I love nearly every shade of her lip kits and the matte ones are the most beautiful colours I have ever seen!

Nars and Radiant Creamy Concealer:
This looks like a really nice concealer with a really horrible price of £22.00 from the actually Nars site.  From when I have seen people apply it they didn't need to use too much to get a decent coverage on blemishes.

Urban Decay Brow box
I have been looking at this for ages now and it looks lovely I would love to try it. It's costs £19.50 and comes with a pair or tweezers and two brushes for application to the brow. It comes in multiple shades so that there is a box with shades to match every eyebrow colour.

So these are the make up products I would absolutely love to own for myself but considering I have no money that doesn't seem possible anytime soon. I hope you enjoyed this post.

Chocolate sponge cakes

I have done a really, really similar blog post to this before but I'm a choc-o-holic so when I bake and make things, I do like them to be chocolaty. For this baking post I made chocolate sponge cakes, this mixture can make one tray of big cup cakes which are like muffins or two trays of small cup cakes. Its different from my last baking post as this recipe is a lot more of a sponge than the other cupcakes. So this is how you make them. 

You will need:
9oz Butter
9oz Caster Sugar
6oz Self raising flour 
4oz Coco powder
4 Eggs
1 Pinch of salt
1 Large bar of Chocolate

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees c/170c fan or gas mark 5 and fill a tray with cupcake cases.
  2. Weigh all you ingredients out and put you butter and caster sugar in a mixer or bowl, mix them together until the mixture is soft.
  3. Then add the eggs gradually (add one at a time and then mix together before adding the next one in.)
  4. Sift in the self raising flour and coco powder then fold in the flour and coco powder until the mixture is stiff.
  5. Separate the mixture into all the cases and then put in the over to cook for 30 minuets.
  6. When you take your cakes out the oven put a knife in the cake and if when you take it out if its clean then they are cooked, leave then on a same place to cool down. 

    7. Next take your large bar of chocolate break it into little pieces and melt it in a saucepan.
    8. To finish of the cakes drizzle the melted chocolate over the cakes and then you are ready to enjoy your spongy cupcakes.
