The Glitteriest Eyeshadow Trio…EVER.

Hi Guys!

I’m gonna start this post with a picture :). A glorious, glittery and glamorous picture.

See article A:

EYESHADOWTRIO

This gorgeous eyeshadow palette was kindly sent to me by Born Pretty Store. I was gifted a few products, here you can read my first review of an amazingly thin liquid eyeliner :).

This Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio is only $4.22, so it’s great value for money. I said in my previous post, please don’t be concerned that the prices are in dollars…I found that the shipping was quick and the quality was great.

I have always loved the idea of an antique gold-y eyeshadow and I have now finally got one! The first thing I noticed about this palette was just HOW glittery they are. They were really pigmented when I watched them, but the only thing I wasn’t as keen on was that they do contain quite coarse glitter.

The white shade is most probably my least favourite colour…the bronze gold and the ‘antique’ gold are gorgeous! I would definitely recommend using an eyeshadow primer with these simply because creating a light base will help these colours pop.

I don’t think I’ll use the sponge applicator that came with it, I’d much rather use my eyeshadow brushes but you could probably do a decent job even with the little double ended sponge. If you fancy trying some products from Born Pretty Store then you’ll be pleased to hear they offer FREE worldwide shipping AND I have an exclusive 10% off discount code!

The Winter Beauty Routine Edit

Hi Everyone!

In the past two weeks in the UK it’s definitely felt a lot colder. This is the sign of winter edging it’s way nearer to us, which means soon the evenings will start to get darker and all of a sudden you’ll be craving things like soup and hot chocolate.

When we start to move into Autumn/Winter there are a few things that I do to change my skincare and beauty routine around, which I like to call the Winter Beauty Routine Edit.

WINTERBLOG

I’ve included TEN things you can do to shift your beauty routine into 5th gear and keep your skin and make up looking and feeling great even when it’s cold and dark and gloomy!

    1. Layer your moisturisers – using more than one moisturiser or moisturising method can boost your skincare massively. I am currently liking layering a Vitamin E moisturising face mist with the Clinique Moisture Surge!
    2. Carry around at least 4 lip balmslip balms are your friend as it moves towards winter – the harsh cold winds and increased use of heating can lead to dehydration leaving your mouth prone to cracking and dryness – EW.
    3. End your shower with a burst of colder water on your hair – ending your shower with a luke warm to cold burst of water helps to flatten your follicles which makes your hair shinier. It can also help to reduce frizz!
    4. Shower in the eveningthis is more of a personal tip – basically if you hate getting up early, and hate the fact in winter it’s really dark when you get up, shower in the evening so you get optimum sleeping time!
    5. Baths and bath bombsThis is where you add the luxury to your bath and skincare routine. Indulge in some splurging at Lush and order some bath bombs to treat your skin to a soak!
    6. Once a week, use a body scrubAlthough less people are seeing parts of your body, it doesn’t mean you have to forget about it! Use a good body scrub like the Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub to keep your skin smooth and to buff away any dead skin cells – AGAIN, EW.
    7. Use a good foot cream – I don’t really wanna have to explain this one but it’s similar to the point above and, oh TRIPLE EW.
    8. Have a make up clear out – Take this as your chance to get rid of any manky old mascaras, any bacteria laden powders or dusty old lipsticks and clear them out! Use this time to refresh your make up collection for winter, remembering you want moisturising products – and you can experiment with plummier moodier colours if you are brave enough!
    9. Invest in a good liquid eyeliner – The windier, rainier and more torrential the weather gets, the more your make up is vulnerable to attack on a daily basis. Investing in a good LONG LASTING liquid eyeliner will stop you looking like a panda!
    10. Morrocanoil – This stuff is a god send! Smoothing a small amount of this through the ends of your hair is great for keeping hair in good condition during winter. My favourite way to use this is to warm a few drops in the palms of my hands for a few minutes and then hold the ends of my hair in my palm – the warmer the oil the better it will take to your hair (not like 100 degrees or anything!)

I hope you have found this useful to read as winter begins to knock at the seasonal front door like an unwelcome carol singer.

Born Pretty Store – The perfect place to get beauty bargains!

Hello Everyone!

***Keep reading for an exclusive 10% discount code!!!***

So, a while ago I was approached by the website Born Pretty Store, who kindly sent me some items that I will be reviewing here! It’s mainly beauty items that they sell, but they do everything from make up brushes, to temporary tattoos, eyeshadows and eyeliners!

One thing I want to make clear right away, is that I beg you PLEASE don’t judge this website on what it looks like. OK, yes it is all in dollars, yes they are Chinese run but I have to say I was really impressed with the service and the products themselves.

I’m going to be honest here and say that whenever I get emails asking me if I want to review products I am always sceptical at the beginning…but I had no need to be with this store as I actually love the products that I received and would definitely buy them myself in future! (Also the lady that emailed me was so lovely and adorable it made me smile 🙂)

The item that I tried first of all was a liquid eyeliner. I have tried a few different eyeliners but I am very fussy, so I pretty much always stuck with my L’Oréal Superliner which is really pigmented but can be quite tough to remove. I was attracted to this eyeliner because of the NIB. Anyone who loves using liquid eyeliner knows how important the NIB is.

Here is what the ‘Extremely Thin Eyeliner Pen’ looks like:

For only $4.07, I have to say I was SO impressed with this eyeliner. The nib is firm but soft at the tip (stop sniggering in the back there) and the liquid is JET black. It is quite liquid-y though so when I watched this on my hand it bled into the lines of my skin. See below:

eyeliner2

When I applied this along my lash line I didn’t see any of the colour bleeding – the liquid was so smooth and pigmented, and the nib made it really easy to start with a thin line. It is actually really easy to thicken the line too if you need it, to top it off creating a flick was easy as can be!

I wore this to work, so to see whether it lasted all day I took a ‘Just After Application’ photo and ‘End of The Day’ photo:

BEFORE AND A

On the whole I was really impressed with the staying power of this – think about it, the product is only $4, the formula is quite thin and yet it lasted all day without smudging.

Most excitingly, I have a 10% discount code if you want to place an order. I’ll tell you why you I think you should consider giving Born Pretty Store a browse:

  • FREE SHIPPING worldwide
  • GREAT value for money
  • SURPRISINGLY EXCELLENT quality products!

There is a banner in my side bar that will take you right to the store if you click it 🙂

Here is the exclusive code if you’d like to get 10% off your order:

I hope you guys like the products from Born Pretty Store as much as I have! More reviews to come from me for this place so if you still aren’t convinced keep your eyes peeled 🙂

September Beauty Wishlist – If Money Was No Object!

I go through phases where I see a beauty product over and over again and I think AHHHH I WANT IT. Then I don’t buy it because ALAS, my beauty addiction is not the reason why I am working full time.

However, every now and then I love to bundle together the little cosmetic joys that are making me drool over instagram and blog posts and create a beauty wishlist…for fun I also tot up the damage to my imaginary brimming wallet.

TO THE IMAGINARY WALLET WE GO…**woosh**

1. Laura Mercier Eye Chromes Palette – £32.00

Oh Holy Palette! This is an insane looking palette (not one for daytime, this) from Laura Mercier – this will quench any chrome/glitter/shimmer thirsts you have and more. The shades look like they would be super pigmented and used with some Fix Plus or make up spray these would look AMAZING.

2. Zoeva Rose Golden Palette – £15.50

This palette looks insanely good and all for such great value. Considering the Urban Decay Naked Palettes are around £40 per pop, depending on how pigmented these eyeshadows are I would say that’s a pretty good steal in the palette department. The shades look awesome, with two matte shades thrown in there for good measure.

3. Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze & Glow – £49.00

The most pricey item in my wishlist, this would most definitely be a beauty investment as I would expect this to be super pigmented due to the price and last a heck of a long time. This has had rave reviews and I’d be mad not to want this contour and highlight duo!

4. Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eye Palette in Dolce Vita – £38.00

I didn’t realise I had so many palettes in this wishlist. Oops. This quad from Charlotte Tilbury looks like it would be such an investment – the shades you get in here have enough for a very neutral matte day time look and then a POW IN YO FACE shade for evenings and nights out. That burnished gold has me weak at the knees.

5. Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk – £16.00

You can’t beat a good nude lip liner and I’ve heard that Charlotte Tilbury ones are some of the best. Designed to be creamy but long lasting, these would be ideal for layering under a nude lipstick, or helping to nude out a pinky lip you have already applied. This seems to be one of the more realistic things from this wishlist that I would purchase!

6. Tarte 12 Hour Amazonian Clay Blush in Flush Pink Berry – £9.25 converted from dollars

This blush looks so pretty and to be honest, although I’ve only picked one shade I could quite easily have every single one of them. I have heard rave reviews about the colour pay off and I’ve always wanted to try something from the Tarte brand.

7. Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Pink Souffle – £9.62

I would liken the colour of this lip stain to the blush I have put in above. The shade I’ve chosen would be a great pinky lip that isn’t too brash – it would be ideal for everyday wear! These are matte/satin-y lip stains from what I’ve read, they sound amazing and would hopefully last for a long time on the lips too :).

So that is the end of my September Wishlist!

The grand total if I were to buy ALL these amazing products would beeeeeee…..

£179.37!!!!

I hope you enjoyed reading this – please leave me a comment if you’ve tried any of these or want the same things as I do in your beauty collection!

A Speedy Glittery Smokey Eye Make Up Tutorial!

Hi Everyone!

So I have an exciting new tutorial that I’ve filmed for you, where I have created a glittery, shimmery smokey eye look that is ideal for a glamorous evening or night out. It uses matte eyeshadows to build up intensity around the crease and then a shimmery eyeshadow stick (By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock – I’m sure you’ve heard someone talking about it before).

This look does use false eyelashes and I’d definitely recommend these ones that I have used in the video which are by the brand Red Cherry, these are GORGEOUS and they only cost around £3.50!! Bargain – AND you can reuse them! I would say you can reuse them a maximum of three times, which is better than the usual Eyelure strip lashes you get from Boots.

Want to grow your hair quicker? Then try this from Lee Stafford…

Hi Everyone <3!

Today I’m posting about something that I have been testing out for around 3 months already…

*read to the end of the post to see my before and after*

To show you that I like this product, I can prove it by telling you I have used around 3 pots of this stuff and still have 2 left that I bought as back up! I’m talking about the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment (the little pink pot) that everyone and their distant aunty has been talking about.

I cut my hair into a short bob at the beginning of the year (new year, new hair and all that – you can see my ‘transformation’ here). I loved having it short but because I went from having rather long hair to short quite quickly it was hard to adjust *weep*. The thing I missed the most was being able to scrape it into a pineapple explosion bun on the top of my head at the end of the day…ahh.

lee stafford hair growth

So around July time I decided to try a few things to encourage my hair to grow. I had previously dip dyed my hair and made it ombré red – which looked great until my hair had become so dry the ends started to go a bit orange *ew*. So once I had cut my hair into a bob it had basically lobbed off all the manky frazzeldy end bits and I had much healthier and thicker hair again.

I originally heard about the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment  from the blogger and blogger Velvetghost (Gabby for those of you who are familiar with Youtube, I have met her and she’s lovely!). Instantly I had a feeling this would work well as she had used it to help her own hair grow and she had reported very good progress!

What’s great about this first of all is that if you buy it from Boots, usually there is a 3 for 2 going on which means that if you buy three of the hair growth pots it will only come to £16.98…AND you will get Advantage Card points!

It’s recommended to use this product each time you wash your hair, so basically what I do is get in the shower, wash my hair with my usual shampoo (I’m using the OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo at the moment) and then grab a golf ball sized amount of the Lee Stafford treatment and start to really massage this into my scalp. Part of me was sceptical that the only reason it’s worked so well is BECAUSE I’ve been really massaging it in and consequently stimulating the blood flow to my roots…but if it is a placebo I don’t care because it’s working lol.

Take a few minutes to really work this in – don’t worry about using this much as it doesn’t make your hair greasy it just helped my hair become shinier, healthier and stronger. You can add it to your ends too but I tended to just use my normal conditioner at the ends. I then would rinse this out – it smells amazing like really fresh herbs (which sounds weird but it smells good).

I really love this stuff, but more importantly I bet you guys want to see how it has helped me to grow my hair.

Well – here is a little comparison from when I cut my hair in January and how long it is now! Obviously I’ve only been using this product for a few months but I would say it has helped with the majority of the growth :D:

lee stafford

All in all I think I’m going to continue using this as I’d love to have my hair long again, it’s in so much better condition now and I think that’s in part down to the Lee Stafford Hair Growth treatment…

Have any of you guys used this? Any other recommendations on how to help your hair grow healthily?

August Favourites!

Hi Guys!

I have my newest video on my August Favourites for you to watch 🙂 I can’t believe it’s September already, it’s instantly felt colder and darker! I have to say I quite like cosy nights in and sitting by the fire so part of me is excited, but I decided to film my favourites which are a mix of skincare and make up.

Keep an eye out for the consequences of squeezing too hard…you’ll see!

Zoella Let’s Spritz Body Mist- Better than the first?

Hello everyone!

Today I have a quick review for you which is based around the Zoella beauty range – more specifically the body mists that she has launched in BOTH rounds of her beauty products. I tried a number of products from her original collection and loved most of them – the fizz bar smelled amazing and the candle I instantly burned out!

In particular one of my favourite things that I completely used up was the Blissful Mistful body mist. This was a really unique scent to me, I hadn’t ever smelled anything like it. It was packaged in an orange metal and glass spray bottle, so this made me think it smelled a bit like oranges too. It was generally very citrus-y and fresh which I really liked.

As I said I used that all up, then right on time (do do do do do – I’m thinking of that really old song sing it in your head!) she launched her second round of beauty products! These are themed around ‘Tutti Frutti’. I hate the way Frutti looks as a word, it looks like it should be pronounced ‘Frutty’ and that makes me feel a bit sick.

zoellalet'sspritz

I was a bit sceptical about how this would smell/look/smell…but one thing you can be confident about when trying something from the Zoella ranges is that it will not smell like anything you’ve ever smelled before! (should I say the word smell some more?)

This new spray called ‘Let’s Spritz’ is the complete opposite of the first body mist. This one is in a blue and pink bottle with a white lace print covering the back. The packaging follows the same theme as the previous range just with tweaks in colour and accents but it’s still very pretty!

zoella let's spritz tutti frutti

Right I’ve just grabbed the bottle to smell. So….it smells…powdery (talcum powdery new cleaned up baby smell) but at the same time it’s quite lemony and fresh. Don’t let the pink liquid put you off – the range is meant to be geared towards teens. The mist seems like it would be very sweet and a bit sickly from the packaging, but actually I think it is rather grown up – so I’m pretty impressed with that!

It’s a steal at £7 currently in Superdrug, and I think I will end up swapping between this one and the original because I love them both!

Have you tried anything else from the Zoella Tutti Frutti (shudder) range?
