A little help from those who have moved to wordpress.org please!

HI All,

So I’ve just moved to wordpress.org though I’m posting on my wordpress.com one now. I have a request in at .com for now to move my current subscribers over but I have a few questions so if anyone has made the move and can help I’d be most grateful!

  1. How long does it take them to move my followers?
  2. Can I still be found on the reader when I post on my self hosted site?
  3. Can new wordpress.com readers follow me in the same manner they do now or do they have to sign up by email?(Instead of clicking one button) If so how have you overcome this and what effect has it had on your follower growth?
  4. Will I be better off forgetting wordpress.org and just staying here? I moved so that I can turn it into a business eventually (hopefully) which I can’t do here.

I’d be so grateful for some advice from those who have made the move! Thank you in advance!

We’ve moved!!

Hi All!

To enable us to be bigger and better we’ve had to move. WordPress.com is very limited when you are trying to grow a blog into a business (eventually) and we felt it was time we shipped over to wordpress.org! Please bare with us while we move all you lovely followers over, if you like you can head over and follow us while you are waiting! We can now be found at nakedbeautyblog.com.

I hope you’ll all still support us in this move and enjoy the posts!

The Body Shop Brow & Liner Kit Review

EyebrowKit

There seems to be a shortage of affordable eyebrow kits right now. Every time I saw one online to order it seemed to be out of stock. The MUA one has had brilliant write ups but is consistently not available. That’s when I came across The Body Shop’s one. This item is solely responsible for my recent TBS haul. If I was already ordering it I may as well make the most of it and order enough to get free shipping.

Prominent, bold and thicker eyebrows have been slowly making a comeback over the summer and are set to big for Autumn. Good eyebrows can change a whole look, make statement and frame your face. Eyebrows were never meant to be thin lines barely there.  If like most of us you followed the over plucked look in the last few years chances are your brows don’t have what it takes to meet this seasons trend. That’s where a good eyebrow kit comes in.

I usually use Brow Zings by Benefit but it’s pretty pricey for what it is and I’ve run out so I decided to find an affordable option and I’m thrilled with this little treasure.

Firstly, the packaging is lovely, if a pain in the butt to photograph, it looks glamourous and there is plenty of product included and a handy mirror and double ended brush. It also comes in a range of different shades so there really is one for everyone.

It’s really easy to use, you can use either end of the brush depending on what works best for you, largely this is decided by the size of your eyebrows and what size you want them to be. I think the smaller brush is meant to be used as the eyeliner but I find that brush easier to use when doing my eyebrows. You use the lighter shade in the middle and then the darker to create the arch and fill in the eyebrow.

1This product works really well, it’s so versatile that you can create the perfect brow look for you, day or night. It also lasts really well. It’s a really thick powder, it tames the brows in a flash and maintains them throughout the day.

The darker colour can also be used to set eyeliner or even as an eyeliner which is an added bonus.

At just £10 it is a total bargain and The Body Shop often have offers on anyway so you can get it even cheaper.

What brow kit do you use?

MUA (Makeup Academy) Lipstick in Red Shade 1 Review

2I go through so much red lipstick it’s unreal. I cherish red lipstick above all other colours, I love that it is striking and beautiful. It makes a statement and that suits me just fine.

I am loving MUA at the moment, for the bargain basement price the quality is outstanding. I recently discovered their lipsticks and I plan on purchasing the whole collection now, at £1 a pop you really can’t go wrong.

They all also have a handy little pot attached to the base of the lipstick containing the same colour ready to be used with a brush. Perfect for when you want to show the colour off on a friend hygienically.

Now onto this colour, I have tried A LOT of red lipsticks and they just don’t stick around that well. My biggest problem is they aren’t kiss proof and both my son and husband get annoyed with red smudges across their face. I only had to reapply this once in a whole day and I only half bother with the Lipcote sealant that I use too. For me this is incredible.

1It is a sexy shade, not too bright, it’s a deep red that looked fantastic with my current red hair. It has a wonderful sheen to it that looks elegant. I originally just bought this for day use but it would be incredibly suitable for night time too.

If you haven’t already tried MUA I recommend getting your butt to Superdrug pronto!
