Its that time of the year again where I try to make a different spin of my annual christmas brownies this year I decided to make them into Cupcakes and add some Peppermint extract for that peppermint chocolate goodness 

 To make these cupcakes you will need
2 box mix of the Zumbo Browine mix
1 whole bag of candy canes in peppermint 
1 tiny teaspoon of peppermint extract 
4 large eggs
250grams of melted butter 

Start by mixing your box mixed brownies in a bowl 
add your 4 eggs and let your melted butter cool slightly before adding 
add your smashed candy canes & your peppermint extract 
mix well 
and place into cute festive patty pans 
have them in your oven for 25 minutes on 180 fan forced oven 

Then you can add your smashed candy canes & cute little christmas candies ontop of the cupcakes 
the Santas are from Wiltons & the gingerbread men are from a baking shop online

No Filter Foundation & All Star Primer Duo | Colourpop Cosmetics

16 September 2018


Colourpop have been releasing so many gorgeous new products lately and I have been wanting to try out the no filter foundation for a little while now here is my thoughts on these new face products from colourpop 


Firstly I have to say that the All Star primer & setting spray is one of the most refreshing feeling & smelling face duo's I have ever tried the primer has a very similar feel to the fenty beauty primer " which I love " but this one is just as soft & pore blurring as that one The setting spray doesn't feel sticky once it is drying it went into my skin very quickly 

The no filter foundation is in such a good sized bottle for traveling 
The consistency of the foundation is very liquid like but I really love how it dries down to a satin matte feel it docent feel heavy on the skin which is something I am looking for in a foundation at the moment with it being spring I am the shade Fair 15 in this foundation 

Have you tried this new colourpop foundation & setting spray & primer 
I would love to know your thoughts
