REVIEW: MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL & DEFINE CONCEALER

REVIEW: MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL & DEFINE CONCEALER

The Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer (*) (£4 for 4 g) is the concealer that everyone has been talking about lately, which is why I needed to try it! On the brand’s own website, revolutionbeauty.com (*), the concealer has received 4.7 stars out of 5 on average, which is really good! They also state that the concealer is the winner of the Cosmopolitan Beauty Award 2018. All of these things really gets my hope up for this concealer! So let’s get down to business and take a look at what they state this concealer will do:

  • The formula is lightweight with full coverage
  • Cover blemishes
  • Even skin tone
  • Counteract dark circles
  • Has a matte finish
  • Won’t settle or accentuate fine lines and pores
  • Long wearing

Who wouldn’t want all of this in their concealer?! To show you how the concealer performs, I have made a small wear test for you. This is my first time doing a wear test for a concealer, so when I took the picture of my eyes after 8 hours of wear, I realised that I maybe should have taken a picture at around 4 hours of wear. I instead took a picture the day after wearing the same concealer applied with the same technique at 4 hours of wear. The quality is crab, to say the least, as it is taken with my iPhone in very bad lighting as I wasn’t home the entire day. I hope you can bear with me! But let’s take a look at the wear test:

The first photo in the wear test is me only with foundation on. I never put foundation on my eyes as I don’t want that many layers on my skin. The second photo is right after I have blended out the concealer (*) with my beautyblender. The photo after that is after I have baked the concealer with translucent loose powder. I always bake my concealer. I actually bake my entire face. The reason why I always bake my under eyes is that I have some deep creases below my eyes. I have had them for as long as I can remember! If I don’t bake, then my concealer looks awful and will sink into my creases straight away! The fourth photo is right after I finished my eye makeup. The fifth photo is a flash test. I think it is safe to say that this concealer definitely passed it! I then went about my day and took the last two photos after 8 hours of wear.


As you can see in the last two photos of the wear test, the concealer had sunken into my creases. How much a concealer sinks into my creases depends on a lot of things like how the weather was and what I was doing that day. The humidity in Denmark is right now at 100% which is why the concealer will sink into my creases even more than it would do with a lower humidity. To show you my creases a bit more, I have included these two pictures. The one to the left with the good quality is taken right after I applied my eye makeup. As you can see, the concealer has not sunken into my creases here. The photo to the right is the one I talked about earlier in this review. I took the photo the day after my wear test to show you how the concealer looks after 4 hours of wear. None to less has sunken into my creases!

The concealer (*) is available in 25 shades! 25 SHADES! I own it in shade C0 and C1 as I am very fair. I like to apply the C1 in an upside down triangle under my eyes and then put a dot of C0 (pure white) under each eye and blend it out. It comes with a doe-foot applicator which picks up a lot of product. I really like the look of the component, it is very stylish and cute with the pink!

I have used this concealer for quite some time now, and it is, as they state, very lightweight while still being very full coverage! It did not settle into any fine lines, but it did sink into my creases over time which I did expect and I don’t mind. I also find it very long wearing as I think it looks pretty much the same if you take a look at my wear test again and look at the flash test and the photo below it which is the photo of the concealer after 8 hours of wear. The only difference is that the flash test photo is taken at daylight and the other at nighttime.

The concealer does have a matte finish which you will be able to confirm yourself by looking at the second photo at the top of my wear test. I have not used the concealer to cover any blemishes as I always use the Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation for that. But it really did cover my dark circles and even out my skin tone under my eyes. So the product does live up to all of the claims! Because of that, I will award the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer (*) 5 out of 5 possible hearts!

This concealer (*) makes me so happy! I love how it looks, how it feels, how it wears, and how inclusive it is! I mean, there is a shade for everyone! If you have not tried this concealer yet, then I think it is time you do! And it is only £4 so if you don’t end up liking it, it is not that big of a loss. But seriously, I think you will love it! Let me know if you have tried the concealer and how you like it! It could also be very helpful if you told us about your under eye skin, is it oily, dry, normal, mature? I would say my under eyes are pretty normal but tends to go dry if the weather is cold. Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

WORKOUT GEAR INSPIRATION: MATCHING SETS

WORKOUT GEAR INSPIRATION: MATCHING SETS

Grey High Waisted Leggings (Famme, £40) – Grey Sports Bra (Famme, £33) – Khaki Sports Bra (GymJam, £26) – Khaki High Waisted Leggings (GymJam, £36) – Burgundy High Waisted Leggings (ICIW, £61) – Burgundy Sports Bra (ICIW, £29) – Pink Sports Bra (GymShark, £25) – Pink High Waisted Leggings (GymShark, £40)

I have been on the look-out for some new gym wear, and I have found myself to be the most attracted to the matching two-piece sets consisting of a pair of leggings and a sports bra. My boyfriend brought me a matching set last year for Christmas, but I think I got the leggings in a size too small as they squeeze my butt real flat and that is not for me. Maybe it also has something to do with the fabric of the leggings.

The main reason why I have chosen these four sets to share with you is that I really like the look of them and that I love the colours! All of the sets include a sports bra and a pair of high waisted leggings. If you are not that keen on only working out in a sports bra, then some of the brands also offer the styles in tank tops or long-sleeved T-shirts. I have not tried anything from the brands that I have included, so I don’t know if the leggings are squat secure or how the fabric will look after you start working out and most likely sweating. Based on just looking at the pictures of the fabric, I think the grey set and the pink set might be made of a fabric sweat would be able to break through. But this will depend on how much you sweat. I know the pink sports bra might begin to darken throughout my workout!

I know that my next buy is going to be the grey set from Famme that I have shown you above. I can’t wait to order it and try it on! And this time I will make sure that my leggings fit! I hope you enjoyed this inspirational post! I really want to include some more workout themed posts on my blog, so let me know if there is anything specific you would like to see! Also, let me know what you like to wear when working out! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

TUTORIAL: SPOOKY HALLOWEEN GHOST WINGED LINER

TUTORIAL: SPOOKY HALLOWEEN GHOST WINGED LINER

I wanted to do a Halloween makeup tutorial this year. I have seen a lot of full face Halloween makeup looks, but not that many “subtle” looks which don’t include the entire face. This is why I wanted to create a Halloween makeup look which is very wearable if you don’t want to go all out. I really love how this turned out and I hope you guys love it as well! If you are interested in learning how to recreate this, then please keep reading!

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre and used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set it. I then layed down some of the “Orange Crush” eyeshadow from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To blend out “Orange Crush”, I used the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents lightly dipped into “Charm” (*) from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette (*). After I was satisfied with the blending, I went in and created a cut crease using the Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation and the Real Techniques Detailer Brush (*). I used some of the “Tempera” (*) eyeshadow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette (*) to set the wet cut crease. You can also use transparent powder if you want, I just wanted the subtle shimmer the “Tempera” (*) eyeshadow has.

After I had set the cut crease, I reintensified the orange eyeshadow by going back in with “Orange Crush” on the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques and blended it out with a clean Pointed Blender Brush. To deepen up the orange eyeshadow a bit, I went in with “Realgar” (*) from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette (*) with the same Smudge Brush. I only applied a tiny bit at a time. The next step is to create the ghost! I used the NYX Cosmetics White Liquid Liner (*) for this part, and I started out by laying down the white eyeliner as it is easier than covering up black eyeliner. When I had the shape of the ghost I wanted, the next step would be to outline it with a black eyeliner. But before I did that, I applied some of the Lancôme Le Crayon Khol Eyeliner (*) to my upper and lower waterline. The reason I did this before applying the outline with the liquid eyeliner, was because I then would be able to see where to apply the liquid liner at my inner corner. I used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner (*) to make the outline.

To finish up my lower lashline, I applied a bit of the “Incognito” eyeshadow from Coastal Scents to smudge out the liner on my waterline a bit. I used a clean Smudge Brush to apply it. I then blended out the black eyeshadow with the Pointed Blender Brush dipped into “Orange Crush”. To finish up my look, I applied a mixture of the two highlighters “Snow” (*) and “Golden Dawn” (*) from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit (*) to my browbone and inner corner. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied the Eylure The Luxe Collection False Eyelashes in Bauble (*, **) and finished it off with some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara.

I am so in love with how this turned out! If you are not that keen on orange, then you can, of course, go for another colour for the cut crease. A purple cut crease would look great as well and still keep it in the colours of Halloween! Please let me know if you are going to dress up for this Halloween, and if you are, then please tell me what! Halloween is not that big in Denmark so I am not going to get dressed up in anything spooky. Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

10 ANKLE BOOTS UNDER 30 POUNDS

10 ANKLE BOOTS UNDER 30 POUNDS

//1 Black Flare Heel (Boohoo, £28, *) – //2 Black Studded Block Heel (Pimkie, £30, *) – //3 Black Check Ring Zip Flare Heel (New Look, £30, *) – //4 Black Faux Snake and Sudette Block Heel (New Look, £28, *) – //5 Snake Print Block Heel (ASOS DESIGN, £30, *) – //6 Black Gusset Detail (Boohoo, £28, *) – //7 Black Pointed Toe and Flared Block Heel (New Look, £30, *) – //8 Mustard Sudette Flared Heel (New Look, £28, *)

Ankle boots are such a staple piece in a wardrobe. I, myself, own three pairs of black ankle boots and when the season change from summer and we go into fall and winter, I most often find myself wearing ankle boots. A black pair of ankle boots are so versatile and they go with almost every outfit! For a long time, I have been on the lookout for a grey pair of ankle boots, but I have not found anything matching what I am looking for. As I already own a pair of “basic” black ankle boots, I thought I would include some boots with funny details or funky patterns or colours in my collage of 8 examples on ankle boots under 30 pounds. The reason all of the ankle boots above have a heel is because that is what I find the most flattering. If you are not that keen on heeled boots, then I am sure you can find some other ankle boots without heels under 30 pounds 😉


If you don’t have any ankle boots in your wardrobe and are unsure about how much wear you will get out of them, then I will suggest you go for a black pair as they are, as stated before, the most versatile. My favourite pair of black ankle boots has a pointed toe like the one at #6 (*) and I think it is so flattering! #1 (*) and #4 (*) have a flared heel compared to a block heel seen at #2 (*). I think a flared heel detail is so intriguing and I am really into the pair at #1 (*) because of it. Neither of these three examples of black ankle boots might be what you are looking for if you are out buying the first pair of black ankle boots to your wardrobe, then something like #4 (*) might be more for you. But it, of course, depends on your style.

If you already own a lot of black ankle boots, then you might want to go for something different like a different colour or a pattern. I have included two ankle boots with patterns and one in a different colour in my collage. The one at #3 (*) has a black and white pattern while the one at #5 (*) has a snake print. I think these two pairs, as well as the mustard coloured ones at #8 (*), would go so nice with all black outfits! They would also look great paired with a pair of light denim jeans!

I hope this post gave you some inspiration as to what kind of ankle boots you should add to your wardrobe next and where to go if you are looking for a nice pair of boots on a budget. If I had to pick my favourite pair of ankle boots from the collage above, then it might have to be the pair at #8 just because of the colour! Let me know in the comments which pair from the collage is your favourite! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

MY FAVOURITE LIPSTICKS FOR FALL 2018

MY FAVOURITE LIPSTICKS FOR FALL 2018

I love the transition of colours when the seasons change. I was so excited at the end of August to finally start wearing some more fall appropriate lipsticks. You can wear whatever colour of lipsticks you want, I just wanted to show you what shades of lipsticks I am going for this fall. In this blog post, I have included three lipsticks which I really like the formula of and where the shades of them really make me think of fall. I have included the NYX Cosmetics Lip Lingerie in “Beauty Mark”, the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in “Deceased”, and the Coloured Raine Matte Liquid Paint in “Brick House”.

I find myself transitioning into some deeper and more muted shades when the seasons change into fall. The NYX Cosmetics Lip Lingerie in “Beauty Mark” (which is in the top of the swatches) is a cool-toned dark brown, the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in “Deceased” (which is the middle swatch) is a dusty mauve shade and the Coloured Raine Matte Liquid Paint in “Brick House” (which is in the bottom of the swatches) is a dark terracotta brown. If the swatches below aren’t screaming “FALL” in your face, then I don’t know what will!

I love these three shades for all occasions. I will wear them for everything from my everyday life to a fancy party! You can style them up or down with the rest of your makeup depending on the occasion. For a simple everyday look, you can easily apply some bronzer as your eyeshadow in your crease with some mascara and then apply one of these fall appropriate lipsticks. You can transition your day look into a night look by taking your eyeshadow look to the next level: create a brown smoky eye with a shimmery gold shadow on the lid (this can even be applied without removing any makeup) and reapply your lipstick if needed and boom, you are ready to go!

I hope this blog post gave you some inspiration on your way to finding your favourite lipstick shade for fall! If I had to choose my absolute favourite of the lipsticks mentioned in this post, then I had to go with the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in “Deceased”! If you have not tried the Velour Liquid Lipstick from Jeffree Star Cosmetics, then I highly suggest you try one of them – they are my favourite liquid lipstick formula! I have only included liquid lipsticks because I like when I don’t need to reapply my lipstick every hour. Let me know in the comments what lipstick is your favourite for fall! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

WHY YOU SHOULD ADD SCARFS TO YOUR WARDROBE

WHY YOU SHOULD ADD SCARFS TO YOUR WARDROBE

Top row (left to right)
//1 Sand Agate Silk Scarf (Weston, £75) – //2 Aspinal Signature Shield Silk Scarf (Aspinal of London, £95) – //3 Fendi Printed Silk Scarf (NET-A-PORTER, £130, *) – //4 Aspinal Feather Silk Scarf (Aspinal of London, £85)
Bottom row (left to right)
//5 Pegasus Silk Twill Scarf (Aspinal of London, £95) – //6 Gucci Printed Silk Scarf (NET-A-PORTER, £310, *) – //7 Horseshoe Silk Scarf (Aspinal of London, £95) – //8 Monmouth Fluorite Silk Scarf (Weston, £75)

Scarfs have become a big obsession of mine lately. I have not always been this into this kind of quadratic scarfs, but I love how versatile they are and how many ways you can use them to style up your outfit. The classic way would definitely be to tie it around your neck, which I think looks so classy! You can tie the scarf in many different ways, but the way I prefer it is something like how the Fendi scarf (*) in my collage above.

You can also use the scarf as a hair accessory! If the scarf is large enough, you can tie it around your head like a headband. My favourite way to use a scarf as a hair accessory is to tie it around a ponytail or a bun! Another way to wear a scarf on you is to use it as a bracelet! If you want to include a scarf into your outfit, but you don’t feel like wearing one, then you can tie it around the handle of your bag! This is another styling method I really adore!

I hope you liked this scarf inspiration! I am sorry that all of the scarfs I have included in my collage are rather pricey, but I could not find any budget-friendly scarfs that I was into, and I do not want to include anything I don’t like. A scarf does of course not have you cost you a minimum of £75. I think my favourite scarf from the collage might be the second one from the left in the top row! Let me know in the comments which scarf is your favourite and how you like to wear your scarfs! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

TUTORIAL: ORANGE & GREEN CLEAN CUT CREASE

TUTORIAL: ORANGE & GREEN CLEAN CUT CREASE

I will be the first one to say that I am a bit tired of doing summery eyeshadow looks. So since fall is just around the corner, I wanted to start early on the fall eyeshadow looks and this will be the first one! I was inspired to do this look by @alicekingmakeup but I wanted to use some more fall appropriate colours even though I still think you can use the colours she used for fall. I do not think this is the typical kind of a cut crease which is why I chose to call this look a clean cut crease. I don’t know if that makes sense haha. Please keep on reading if you want to learn how I created this look.

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre and used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set it. I then went in with the eyeshadow “Charm” from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette with the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I applied “Charm” in the shape I wanted my eyeshadow to be. I made sure the edges of “Charm” was blended with a clean Classic Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I then made the cut crease using the LA Girl Pro Conceal and the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents and a brush I don’t know where’s from but it looks something like the Fine Liner Brush from Coastal Scents but I know it is not. I used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set the cut crease.

I then applied the “Military” eyeshadow from the Androgyny Palette around the cut crease using the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques and blended it out with both the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents and the Base Shadow Brush from Real Techniques (*). You do not need to be careful with the blending as you can clean up the cut crease again. When I was happy with the blending, I used the same Smudge Brush to apply the eyeshadow “Pinehurst” from Coastal Scents as close to the cut crease as possible and made sure I did not apply too much. I used the Pointed Blender Brush to blend out any harsh edges of “Pinehurst“. I then cleaned up the edges of the cut crease with the Fine Liner Brush and some of the LA Girl Pro Conceal.

I then finished up the look by applying some of the “White Sand” and “Golden Dawn” from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit to my inner corner and brow bone. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (*) to my upper lashes. I felt that some false eyelashes were appropriate for this look, so I applied the Eylure Luxe False Lashes in Solitaire (*, **).

I really love how this look turned out! I can’t believe summer has already passed! I am so ready for all of the upcoming fall looks! Let me know if you have any specific looks or ideas you think could be interesting for fall! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

8 DESIGNER CROSSBODY BAGS I HAVE MY EYES ON

8 DESIGNER CROSSBODY BAGS I HAVE MY EYES ON

//1 Alexander McQueen Skull Chain Wallet (Farfetch, £1190, *) – //2 Valentino Garavani The Rockstud Spike (NET-A-PORTER, £1800) – //3 Fendi Kan I (Farfetch, £1950, *) – //4 Gucci GG Marmont (NET-A-PORTER, £1420) – //5 Fendi Kan I Red (NET-A-PORTER, £1650) – //6 Alexander McQueen Jewelled Satchel (NET-A-PORTER, £1690) – //7 Prada Piastra Metal Filigree (Farfetch, £1630, *) – //8 Valentino Garavani The Rockstud (NET-A-PORTER, £1620)

Crossbody bags may be one of my favourite styles of bags. I like that they are available in different sizes, shapes, and forms. Here I have gathered 8 designer crossbody bags that I am into at the moment. My favourite of them might be the Fendi Kan I at #3 (*) as I really like their monogram and their colours and the red bow really give it something different. I also really like the size of it. The style is also available in a very fall appropriate red at #5 which I also really adore!

I don’t know why, but I have always loved accessories with skulls. Take the Alexander McQueen bags at #1 (*) and #6 as an example! I think these two bags are very fashionable and interesting due to the skull details. My favourite of the two is the black one at #1 (*) as I think the pattern of the black leather is really gorgeous and I love that the skull design is made to put your fingers though so it can be held as a clutch as well.

I am in love with the Rockstud bags from Valentino as well (#2 and #8)! Both styles are available in other shades as well if you don’t think a pink bag is a perfect match for your wardrobe haha. I think both styles are so edgy yet feminine which will make them suitable for whatever style you have! Another weakness of mine is the Gucci bags and Gucci GG hardware (#4). I think the colour of this ones makes it so versatile and easy to wear as it can be worn with literally every outfit.

The last bag from the collage that I need to talk about is the Prada Piastra Metal Filigree at #7 (*). The reason I find this bag so interesting is due to the silver metal detail on the front. It reminds me of a gate into a fantasy world, I don’t know if it makes sense but that is what it reminds me off haha.

I hope you enjoyed a bit of crossbody bag inspiration. Let me know in the comments which crossbody bag from the collage above that is your favourite! If you are not into expensive crossbody bags or if you are on a budget, then why don’t you take a look at my “10 Crossbody Bags Under 10 Pounds“? Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: RAVENCLAW INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

HARRY POTTER MAKEUP SERIES: RAVENCLAW INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK

Yet another look in my Harry Potter Makeup Series where I get inspired by characters etc. from the universe! This time I took the colours of the Ravenclaw house as my inspiration! This is far from my favourite look and while creating this I really wanted to wipe it all off soooo many times. I do not think a half cut crease is hard to do, but the blue shade really bugged me as it came off rather patchy. But I think I made it work. I was tempted to do an actual ravens claw where the wing of my eyeliner is, but I did not want to push my luck so I just went with a normal winged liner.

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Soft Ochre and used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set it. I then went in with the dark blue “Swallow” eyeshadow from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette and used the Base Shadow Brush from Real Techniques (*) to lay down the shadow. I then blended out the edges of “Swallow” with a clean Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. I then applied “Swallow” under my lower lashes with the same Base Shadow Brush (*) and blended it out with the Pointed Blender Brush.

I then made a half cut crease using the Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation and the Small Foundation Concealer Brush from Coastal Scents. On top of the wet half cut crease, I applied “Déjà Vu” from the Androgyny Palette using the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques to apply it. The reason why I used the dark blue and the bronze shade is that it is the house colours of Ravenclaw. I then made a winged liner using the NYX Matte Liquid Liner (*). I finished up the look by curling my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara to my lashes.

I hope you enjoyed this Ravenclaw inspired makeup look. Please let me know if you have any characters or creatures you want me to be inspired by next! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx

8 IPHONE CASES UNDER 10 POUNDS

8 IPHONE CASES UNDER 10 POUNDS

Top row, L -> R
Snakeskin Metal Ring Case (£1.90) – Clear Case (£8) – Black Marble Case (£1) – Ivory PU Leather Case (£1)
Bottom row, L -> R
Brown Snakeskin Case (£1.70) – Clear Floral Case (£3) – Personalised Marble Case (£1.50) – Shockproof Case (£1)

7 out of 8 of the cases seen in the collage above are from eBay. The reason why is that I personally buy the most of my iPhone cases there as they are cheap and you can get some pretty cool ones! I do own the one to the left on the top row, and even though it is under 3 pounds is it still quite good quality. A case like this one is nice to wear with something like an all-black outfit if you want to make your outfit more exciting. If you are not into the whole door-knob situation, then I have included a case which looks like plain snakeskin. Both of the cases are available in other colours than shown.

If you are not into the whole snake-vibe but still like the animal vibe, then I think the PU leather case is more for you. I really like the look of this one and like that it is available in three different colours in total.

Other cases I like are the marble ones. In the collage, I have included two iPhone cases with marble, one plain and one that is personalised. The plain marble case is available in other colours as well and the personalised one is also available in other designs. The reason why I like marble cases is that I find them very feminine and they go with every outfit.

If you don’t want to “hide” your iPhone with a case, then I think a clear case is what you should get. You can still show off the back of your iPhone with this clear case with floral prints if you think an all-clear case gets too boring. The floral case is also available in other floral designs. You could also go for a case that matches the colour of your iPhone. In the collage, I have shown this case as red but it is available in a lot of other shades including the iconic iPhone colours like silver, gold, and rose gold!

I hope you enjoyed this inspirational post on where to get cheap iPhone cases. Remember when you are shopping on eBay not to get your hopes up too high. I once received iPhone cases that had no room for the buttons on the side of the phone (volume buttons and lock button). Please, let me know where you buy your iPhone cases and how much you are willing to spend on them! Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx
