Haul Time feat. Bare Minerals, Tom Ford, Revolution and L'Oreal

Being a big make up lover I am constantly running out of room in my cupboards and drawers so I went out and bought some plastic storage boxes, a total bargain at only £1 each from Poundland.
Another thing I purchased was this really pretty notebook, I make lists for everything so I am constantly needing new ones, so I always snap up pretty books that I see. I have bought it to keep ideas for blog posts and YouTube videos.
I have seen a lot of YouTubers using these oval type brushesto apply their makeup with and the ones they use are £50 - £60 a brush so when I saw this cheaper version in Superdrug from the brand Revolution I knew I had to have it. It is so pretty in Rose Gold, I love anything in Rose Gold so this brush really appealed. The bristles are really soft and nice and densely packed too so the foundation should go on nice and smoothly.
I needed some more hairspray and Elnett is my favourite brand. I got it in extra strong as I use it everyday and need it to hold my hairstyle in place for up to 10 hours at least. It gives a nice fine mist which I like as some hairsprays just spray in big clumps and then you get too much in one area and not enough in another.
I love watching films especially Disney ones and Harry Potter type films so when I saw Fantastic Beasts had come out on DVD I just had to have it.
This highlighting palette from Revolution is supposed to be a dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette. They are such pretty shades and a lot lighter on the bank balance which can only be a good thing. They feel buttery smooth to the touch and just glide onto the skin. These can also be used as eyeshadows or a bronzer, don'tyou just love multi use products!!


Going to Jo Malone was a really lovely experience today, sometimes the staff in high end department stores can look downtheir noses at you and you end up feeling rubbish but today the assistant was lovely and made me feel really at ease and relaxed. I purchased the Wood Sage and Sea Salt edt. Their packaging in the cream and black is so classy and elegant that you can give them straight away as gifts without any extra wrapping needed.



Thn I went to Bare Minerals and purchased a matte liquid lipstick in the colour "Kissy Face". It is a beautiful blue toned pink, quite neutral. Some liquid lipsticks can feel very drying and so Im hoping this high end verdion wont do that.


Lastly I purchased a mini Tom Ford lipstick from the Men and Boys collection in the shade "Flynn". Yet again it is another neutral shade. ( Can anyone see a pattern occuring here lol?). I also own 2 other Tom Ford lipsticks in "Spanish Pink" and " Blushed Nude". Truly some of the best lipsticks I have ever tried.

I really hope that you have enjoyed this blog post. If you want to see the corresponding video just type in Zoe Archer and you will find me. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and will speak to you all soon.

Love and hugs.

My YouTube channel and Self Belief



Hi Everyone, I hope you are all well and had a happy and blessed Easter. A lot has bern happening with me since I last wrote to you all. I decide to really up my game with my You Tube channel and post videos more regularly.  I suffer with my nerves and anxiety and have severr hand tremors because of it. I used to get teased about it all throughout my childhood being called " freak" "Shakin Stevens" ( an old 1980's pop singer)and the children in my class used to gather round me in a circle shouting "Wibble, Wobble jelly on a plate". So my confidence has never been very high.

But lately I just wanted to get stronger and have more self belief so have tried to push past my mental barriers and have posted the videos whethrr I felt I looked stupid or not. I am so pleased and shocked that I have reached 75 subscribers and feel as if this is spurring me to carry on. I'm only using my phone to record my videos and have no idea about editing or screenshots, so my vidros will seem very amateurish compared to other YouTubers but I can only try to develop my skills over time.

In my videos I have spoken about things that I have been loving lately especially painting my nsils all spring inspired colours, and products that Im trying to use up on a more consistent basis.

Food wise, Ive gone to pot because of all the lovely food tbats been around because of Easter but Im going to try and eat more healthily and make better choices now Easter is over.

Below are some of the colouring pictures I have completed this werk. I have been trying to develop my skills and colours when doing different skin tones. I have found some amazing brush tip pens from Faber Castell in a ramge of different skin tones I got thrm at WHSmiths and I will definitely be looking at getting the other colours available.
