Life With MCM | Blog

Megan McCoig’s blog is a Beauty/Lifestyle blog. Her blog is full of helpful, detailed blog posts of reviews on high end but also drug store beauty products. The layout of her blog is so simple and easy to read. I am a recent follower of her blog and now it is one of my favourites to read. When you read her blog posts, you can see how much effort goes into them. Her pictures always give me photo envy as they look so professional! She also does blog posts on Travel and Inspiration.

I’m Megan McCoig a 20 year old student studying Media and Cultural Studies at the University of the Arts London. My blog is here to share my lifestyle interests, such as travel, beauty, inspiration and personal thoughts. 

From reading blogs across many categories I was recently inspired to start writing about my passions and what I enjoy in life. 

Here’s a brief insight into what you’ll see across each category:
Beauty – I thoroughlyenjoy trying and sharing products from both high end and high street brands. I will be sharing reviews, tips and tutorials to share which beauty products I use and how I use them.
Travel – One of my desires is to travel, and being a student it can be hard to do so. So, when I do get the time and money this is what I do. When I travel I love to document with photos and videos, which I will be sharing along with what I did and enjoyed.
Inspiration – These photos will focus on my personal thoughts and views on many different topics. I will post inspiration that I have written or documented myself, or some stuff that inspires me. This could be anything from a feature I have written to things (objects, people, spaces etc.) that have inspired me to write about and share.

I hope you enjoy what I share with you – feel free to comment and share

Makeup Haul

Before Christmas, I entered Megan McCoig giveaway. I woke up to a message on twitter that I had won it and I was over the moon!. I was a recent reader of her blog and her giveaway contained make up I wanted to try and an eye shadow palette I wanted to buy but was never in the shop when I went to get it.

So when I found out I had won it, I was so happy and excited. I thought I would do a post on what I got with a little review of each product. A few days later I received it and I was excited to try out the makeup products.

Revolution | Flawless Matte
I have had my eye on this palette for a while now and it was always out of stock when I went to buy it. It is full of every day eyeshadows. They are so pigmented and easily bendable.

Elf | Blush Peach Keen
I have never owned or used any Elf products, so I was excited to try them out as I have heard a lot about them. This blush is a gorgeous colour.

Rimmel | Glam Eyes Black Eyeliner
If you read me my blog, you know I am a huge lover of eyeliners that are thin at the end. They are so much easy to do winged liner and you always get a nice thin line.

Eyeko -Black Magic Mascara
Again with Eyeko, I love their eyeliner so I was excited to try out their mascara. This has now made it into my every day make up bag! It lengths, curls and thickens the look of my lashes. I also love the packaging.

Two Faced | Nude Melted Liquified Lipstick
Two faced is another product I have heard about but never used or owned. I love the packaging of this product also, the colour is lovely nude shade and looks lovely on!

Rimmel | Kate Lipstick
I love this shade of red! It is perfect for when you are wearing minimal makeup. This lipstick is also so moisturising and I am happy Megan put this in as a surprise as its a lovely lipstick.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner – Review

IMG_1562

I’ve only heard about this brand for just under a year now as it’s only recently became known in the magazines i read and on blogs.
Eyeko products are a little on the pricy side but i think they are worth the price.

‘Our easy-to-apply, liquid eyeliner pen allows you to create thick feline flicks or fine defined lines to accentuate your eyes.  With our unique long-lasting formula featuring key ingredient Sodium Hyaluronate for a gratifying, colour-intense smudge-proof finish.’ Eyeko

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner – Black 

I remember getting a tester in a magazine a while back and testing it out, when i first used it i must admit we didn’t get along and it went in my makeup back and wasn’t touched. I then re discovered it while doing my makeup the other day and I’ve fallen in love!

I think the reason i first didn’t get on with it was because when i first used it, it seemed like it had already ran out and was coming out patchy. But after giving it another go It came out fine and i haven’t had a problem with it.

It helps me make the best winged eyeliner and it stays put all day and once it’s dried it does not budge! It’s also super easy to clean off with makeup remover which is a plus, as no one likes to spend ages trying to get eyeliner off their eyelids! Sometimes you have to re go over the lines to make it more darker but that does not bother me.

The nib is bigger at the bottom and thin at the top which is perfect for getting the line precise when doing a winged look. Also you can either press lightly for a fine line or press a little harder to get a thicker line.

This eyeliner is £12.00 and I’m sure there’s many dupes of it flying around but i personally love this and it’s replaced my other liquid eyeliner.

What’s your favourite eyeliner?
