So being a new Article Writer here on Habbox, I was scratching my head trying to think of an interesting article to write, and usually I’m quite creative, but I guess when you’re put on the spot, your mind just goes blank; well… It came to me!!! What am I most in the know and familiar with that I could possibly write about…
So as I am new, none of you will know that I am a self taught makeup artist of 9 years!
Yep, that’s right; 9 years ago I was watching random Youtube vids (as you do) when I stumbled upon Lauren Luke (Panacea81) who was like the makeup TOP DAWG of YT back then, and that’s where my love for creation with cosmetics started.
Anyways, so 9 years on and I currently have my dream job (in real life) working for a HUGE online beauty company as a Content Editor; so as I have tried and tested endless beauty products I thought I would share some of my beauty MUST HAVES and review them for you, as some of you out there may want to try them for yourself!
• Maybelline Brow Tattoo Eyebrow Tint – Boots & Feelunique RRP: £12.99 ★★★★★
– 3 Shades Available: Light Brown, Medium Brown & Dark Brown.
The shades are really ideal, and it is really quite easy to apply with it’s brush on applicator. The staying power is supposedly 3 days, however I found that it faded within 2 days which was a little disappointing, plus it is a little pricey, but nonetheless, it peels off super easy, it’s easy to use and tints SO WELL!
• Laura Mercier Transluscent Loose Setting Powder – Feelunique RRP: £29.00 ★★★★★
Well, there’s not much I can say apart from that this is my HOLY GRAIL! I have dry skin, so powders aren’t my best friend, but boy-oh-boy does this powder do it’s job. It is so lightweight on the skin, blending into your base so smoothly, and to be honest, a little bit really does go along way, so you do get what you pay for, as one pot can last you a LONG time. It’s definitely worth the investment!
• Maxfactor 2000 Calorie Mascara – Feelunique RRP: £7.99 ★★★★☆
I’ve always know (from reviews online) that this was a good mascara, but it wasn’t until I actually purchased it that I found out for myself. Firstly, it does NOT clump (hallelujah), secondly it gives beautiful definition and pigment to the lashes and thirdly, just the right amount of buildable volume, however, you won’t get any more of a dramatic effect (like you do with colossal mascaras) which is why I only gave 4*, but I will stick by that I LOVE this mascara and would buy it again.
• Dove DermaSpa Revived (Gradual Self Tan Body Lotion) – Boots Current Offer: £3.89 RRP: £7.79 ★★★★☆
Now, I don’t know about any of you guys and gals, but I am SUUUPER pale… enough to blend in with A4 paper (light jokes lift the heart), and I hate it, but trust me when I say, I cannot pick up a tan for the life of me and it’s frustrating, so the only next best option I have is to fake tan, and even though I do it very occasionally, I like to have a even looking and natural tan, and that is EXACTLY what Dove DermaSpa gives you!
It’s a super soft moisturiser with a tanning complex that allows you to build up a nice gradual tan overnight, and it’s pretty much 90% patch free. The only downside is you smell of fake tan once applied for like 2 days, and it takes ages to dry as the moisturiser sinks into the skin slowly, but all in all, it would always be my first choice!
• NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick – Feelunique RRP: £7:00 ★★☆☆☆
I bought a couple of these when they were discounted, as I love everything about liquid lipstick; the staying power, the finish, how you can create ombre effects so smoothly… Well, I’ve only used these like 2 times, and they just don’t do it for me whatsoever. Don’t get me wrong, the staying power is good initially, BUT, they being to flake quickly and your lips end up looking like a disaster struck. The shades are really pretty but very warm, so not really for my kinda skin tone, and I noticed that once applied, the shade deepened, which, me having pale skin, made me look ill.
They are also very drying on the lips which is a big NO-NO for me when it comes to liquid lipstick, so my advise is… STAY CLEAR of NYX for liquid lipsticks and if you’re going to invest in a liquid lipstick, invest in one that is worth the hype (do your research and watch YT videos, read reviews and sample them in store if possible).

Hey all! Welcome back to Bob’s corner! Today I bring to you: Habbo Gossip.
So, today I thought I might tell you a bit about what goes in my Habbo world! It has been a very chilled week so far, and I have made loads of friends including user: madison0442. She is such a nice person and is really helpful when I need an extra hand in doing things, for example, building rooms.
Since Habbo’s moderators were removed a lot has changed! For example, gambling is now a thing you can do (but I suggest you don’t) and a lot of things have just been let to run free! But I suppose it is a positive as people are able to express themselves easier now too!
I hope you have enjoyed reading this article, please comment below what you think about Habbo these days, and perhaps tell me what you would like to change about it?
Most of you who follow Miss Lovato have either watched or are planning to watch her new documentary on Youtube – Simply Complicated. Without spoiling it, it simply gives you an insight into the real Demi & her battles with Mental Health as well as using both legal & illegal substances to get through what must have been a difficult childhood.
She touches on the bipolar disorder she has as well as the depression and anxiety but continues to spread the message that talking about it openly & honestly as well as putting all that energy into her music, is the key to her strength. Along with a few promotions of her work-out gear, Demi showed us the positive effects that exercise & being outside has on the soul, mind and body. She continues to battle with one final problem she has but doesn’t seem to want to talk about it all too much.
I beg you to watch it whether you are a fan of hers or not; it takes the edge off the pain of our own problems, if only for a little while. And remember I am here if you ever need to talk or want some advice; I have had a few Habbos get in touch already and we are on the path to recovery; why not join us?
So as of today, we are only 63 days away from Christmas… can you believe it?
Gosh, that year went fast, didn’t it?
Anywho, I was thinking about everything wintery, from cuddling up in furry throws on the sofa with your favourite show or film on, drinking coffee, tea, and hot chocolate (and not forgetting the tubs of ice cream :P) to buying new winter faves, whether that be a coat or a big chunky jumper paired with a cute scarf, or ice skating and snow, cinnamon EVERYTHING and presents!

As her organism is not quite ready to cope with events of these proportions, our heroine finds herself in constant reveries, whenever she looks at that little bright spot outside the window…
