This week I have been... #1 (Weekly Roundup)

Hi everyone, I want to share what I have been loving this week, I want to try to do these regularly (hopefully a Sunday stable). I am getting myself back on track and I love posts like this so I can look back and see what I have been loving, kinda like a diary :)


Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Gel Cream: I posted on Instagram (@margretscorner) that I received this Complexion Rescue Gel Cream. I will do a full review on it soon with before and after pictures, I just need to go and get my eyebrows done before I photograph my face! But so far I like it. It is like a very light tinted moisturiser. I definitely need good concealer for under my eyes, and then I can use this when my skin is good. I think I will use it alot this summer.

L'Oreal Nude Palette in Rose: What a surprise this palette was, I wore it this week and used the matte shades in my crease and done heavy blending and it just looked so good. These shades are beautiful and I think that the quality of these shadows are great. The palette is only £14.99 and it is very versatile. I definetly think it is a great buy!

NYX Butter Gloss in Cremé Brulee: I don't think there is a more perfect nude pink lip gloss than Cremé Brulee. I am not a gloss type, I always prefer lipsticks but there are few lip glosses that are just so easy to wear. The Butter Gloss is so buttery and not sticky at all. I have been carrying it with me in my handbag and grabbing it over all these lipsticks that are at the bottom of my handbag. I am posting a NYX Haul in the next few days where this lip gloss is featured.

Esssie Nail Polish in Status Symbol: I love Essie polishes and I remember wanting Cute as a Button but that one was out of stock so I grabbed the closest shade and that was Status Symbol. It is a creamy hot pink and I love it for summer time.

KIKO Roller Scents Eau De Toilette in Vanilla and Orchid: This has been such an easy item to carry around. It is a roller ball perfume and came out like a month ago with the new KIKO summer collection. I think it was around 10 pounds. I love anything Vanilla so I knew I was going to love this scent.

Topshop Sunglasses: I got these last month and since then I have been wearing them daily. I love the shape to them, they are clear on the side and I just love them.


Tea: I have been having some type of Green Tea in the morning and then the Dr. Stuart teas in the afternoon after my lunch. I have been drinking the Slim Plus or the Detox and I really like them both. The Slim Plus is supposed to be appetite suppressant and the Detox is detoxing but it has Milk Thistle in it which helps detox the liver. I am not a tea drinker but I have found a way that works for me. I have a travel mug from Starbucks that I brew my tea in and it keeps the tea warm for over 2 hours. That gives me the time to sip on it and make sure I finish my cup!


Well with me trying to be healthy I have been going to Wholefoods once a week. There are so many things that I am obsessed with in Wholefoods but I always get few of these Pulsin Raw Almond and Raisin Choc Brownie: They are so nice, the Brownie is a perfect Snack with some smoothie or tea in the afternoon. I love it!


The Girl on the Train: I bought this book last week and I read it in few days. It is so difficult for me to describe books. I always have been a big reader but I never know exactly how to describe the book because the book might be well written with a good story line or a plot but for me it is always about how I felt while reading, like excited or curious. This book kept me very curious, I just wanted to know what happened to the missing girl. I bought it because it was said to be similar to Gone Girl which I liked and it has a good plot so if you like these type of books then this one is good.


I am a TV addict so I will try to keep this short because I watch too many series. This week I have been catching up on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Atlanta and New York... Yes I love them all!! I am most excited at the moment about the New York with Bethenny being back, I just wish that Jill would come back as well haha. I loved the last Beverly Hills season and the reunion was soo good. I just can't belive Yolanda is so ill. I think that there is 1-2 more reunion episodes of the Atlanta one but to be honest they are getting a bit boring now. 
I am also watching season 1 of Revenge, I don't know exactly how I feel about them. I was told that if I love PLL then I would love Revenge but I think I need to get onto season 2 to see if I am obsessed or just like it. Definitely tell me your current TV addictions?

I really like a round up of my week like this, I will try to do these at least every other week (hopefully every Sunday) but I am currently blogging on a TV since my laptop screen is still broken.

Thanks for reading

Mac Rebel - Three dupes!

Hi Everyone

If you know me then you know I love a good dupe. I love expensive makeup but only if it is worth it and kinda special. If you can find something that does the same thing (same formula and color), then why pay more money? 
Here is the catch... Finding exact dupe is rare, for example: I have three dupes for MAC Rebel today but none have the same texture, they are very similar and if you are obsessed with this shade of lipstick then you can definitely have one of these three instead of Rebel and save yourself some money. 

Rebel is described as a mid tone creamy pink plum. It's actually more of a cool toned berry with pink undertones. The texture is creamy and opaque. It is easy to apply and wears nicely through out the day. If you are a MAC lipstick lover then the chances of you having Rebel in your collection are high but if you have it on your whislist then take a look at these three dupes. 

The first dupe is the Milani Color Statement lipstick in Sangria, this is my favorite dupe and I feel like texture wise it's the closest. I swatched all the shades and tried to get the best picture of all the lipsticks. Sangria is a tiny bit brighter when swatched but wears the same as Rebel (BTW ef þú ert á Íslandi þá fæst þessi varalitur hér og er aðeins 1890 kr)

The second one is probably the most known dupe for MAC Rebel and that is Wet n' Wild lipstick in Sugar Plum Fairy. This lipstick has a matte finish so if you are looking for a matte version of Rebel then this is your lipstick. The formula is a bit dry so I try to apply lip balm before using this lipstick. This lipstick is easily available in US and I got my friend to pick it up for me when she was there.

The last dupe is the cheapest one and is only one pound! It is from Makeup Revolution which is a company that is bringing out new products every few weeks and they do the best dupes. This lipstick is called Rebel with a cause. The only difference with this one is that it is not as creamy and opaque as Rebel but if you are on a budget and you want to try the shade before actually spending 15 pounds on a lipstick then this one is great.  You can find this lipstick here online.

So there you have it! What are some of your favorite dupes?
