Collaboration Opportunities


Hi guys!

So over the past couple of years I have been so lucky to work with some incredible companies. I’ve experienced a lot, I’ve learned a lot and I’ve worked so incredibly hard with everything I have done. I feel so lucky and so grateful for the opportunities I have been given. But now, 2018, I want to continue brand collaborations of course, but I also want to collaborate with some fellow bloggers and influencers.

Firstly, companies, brands, brand owners, PR companies etc, if you want to collaborate, I am open to all ideas and collaborations. So if you want to collaborate with me, I am able to reach an audience of over 70,000 people, if this is of interest to you please feel free to click on the ‘Work With Me’ tab at the top of this page and see all of the details regarding any possible collaborations.

Now, onto influencers… If you’re a social media influencer across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat etc and have any ideas of how we can collaborate, whether it be photoshoots, day trips or any other ideas then please contact me using this email address:, please subject  it with your username on whatever platform it is you’d like to collaborate on as well as influencer collaboration, so for example ‘@zoelouisesmithx instagram influencer collaboration‘ so I am easily able to find the emails. In the email please include all ideas you have in ways we can collaborate, no matter how many followers you have, no matter what interests you have if you feel like we can collaborate then please do email me because I want to branch out and work with more people.

Thirdly, on to bloggers! I am looking for bloggers to collaborate with on my website. Whether it be collaborative posts, feature posts or anything else you feel we could work with then again please email me on and subject it with your website name and blogger collaboration, so for example ‘ blogger collaboration‘. Please include what ideas you have, what you’d like to write about and why you want us to work together, whether it be to raise awareness for a mental health condition you’re passionate about, gain more experience in writing, gain more confidence, branch out to a wider audience or anything else. I want to work with more bloggers and work together and gain more blogger friends, if you’re interested, even if you’re unsure on what post you’d like to do then please email and we can discuss more information. I am only going to be working with bloggers that have a similar interest in myself and fit with my reading audience.

Now lastly, onto people in general, even if you don’t have a blog and you’re not an influencer then I still want to work with you. If you’re passionate about something, fashion, gaming, mental health awareness, make up, fitness or anything else then maybe we can work together! If you like writing, you like photography or anything else that we may be able to work together with then get into contact with me because we can definitely discuss and make something work out. For this then please email: Please subject it with your name and collaboration, for example ‘Zoe Smith Collaboration‘ and include in the email what you’d like to do, any ideas, any information you think is useful for me to know, your interests, if you’re passion is photography, any work you have previously done, any photos you’ve taken etc.

I am super excited to branch out more this year so if you fit into any of the above categories then please do contact me.

Thank you for reading.



First Impression: MUA Lip Products


Hey Lovelies!

For so long now I have been loving the MUA brand, in particular their highlighters, foundation and eye shadow palettes which are incredible! But the one thing I hadn’t actually tried was their lip products. So I decided this week to go and have a look around Superdrug and pick up a couple of bits. I haven’t used the products as of yet I’ve just swatched them, so today I’m going to give you my first impressions! 


Today I swatched them and then wore them for about 20 minutes each just to get a feel for them for this first impressions post. I brought 3 Velvet Lip Lacquers and 1 Metallic Liquid Lipstick.

The first thing I noticed with all of the matte lip products were how drying they were, even though I only wore them for 20 minutes they really did dry my lips out a lot! Of course this is not great, they aren’t as drying as some of the liquid lipsticks I have tried, but they are very drying even when I tried putting a lip balm on first. However the metallic one wasn’t drying at all and is probably definitely my favourite for that reason.

The Velvet Lip Lacquers that I tried were Kooky, which is a very deep purple. Tranquility, which is a pink based nude and then Reckless, which is a red.


The Metallic Liquid Lipstick I tried is called Blaze, which I would describe as a ruby colour.


Below I swatched them on my wrist so you guys could take a look at them. I tried to take photos of them on my lips but I am still working out the whole photo thing ah!


The photo on the left is immediately after applying them. the photo on the right is once they were dry. As you can see they are gorgeous colours!

So here are a few pointers from me..

1) The matte lipsticks are super drying. They dry really quickly, apart from Reckless which took a little longer to dry than the other 2.

2) The applicator brushes are a lot bigger than I would have liked. It took me forever to actually apply the lipstick as the applicator is so big and it could be ridiculously messy if you don’t take a lot of time over it.

3) The colours are gorgeous! I love all four of the lip products I tried, definitely a gorgeous range of colours, I am sure whatever colours you are into you could probably find one.

4) They take so long to take off! Honestly they are really good for how long I think they will last. I wore them for 20 minutes each, drinking and eating to make sure they were okay and they did not budge at all. When wiping them off it took so long honestly. For me, that is what I look for in lipsticks, the fact it took me so long to take off suggests they will stay on for a very long time. Of course I only wore them for a short amount of time so I can’t say for sure, but once I do wear them for a long period of time I will write a more in depth review of them, if that is something you guys would like.

Overall I would rate all of the lip products I tried a 7 out of 10. Purely because the applicator is way too big for my personal liking and they do dry your lips out a lot! Other than that they are incredible products and as a first impression I would definitely recommend them, that may or may not change when I wear them a lot more but right now, just from swatching them and wearing them I really do love them.

I really hope you guys liked this post, I know I haven’t posted much, but I am now back from my travels from Portugal and I am going to be back to posting a lot more again!

Let me know what posts you guys would like to see in the next couple of weeks, maybe a giveaway to come over on my Instagram at some point soon too so keep an eye out on that! If you don’t already follow me, follow me @zoelouisesmithx. The giveaway will be either when I hit 25000 or 30000, I’m still undecided yet!

See you guys soon with my Portugal adventures post and a couple gifted item reviews!
