Make Up | NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick


Hey guys,

Today I am sharing with you a new lipstick favourite. This is the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in the shade Sandstorm. It is a matte cream lipstick in a nude/brown shade. I have moved away from the my favourite rosy nude shades and wanted to try something different. I love this shade of this lipstick. It lasts all day, maybe needs one touch up a day. I was so impressed by this and the fact that it doesn't seem to dry out my lips like other matte lipsticks.

You can see the kind of look I created with this lipstick below.


I highly recommend trying it out!

Thanks for reading.

Haircare | Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter



Hey guys,

I'm back after taking a little break from posting. I wanting to share with you a new little hair gem which I have discovered.

I recently decided to have my hair colour with honey blonde highlights and balyage. I knew this would make the ends of my hair slightly dry so I decided to try a hair mask.

I discovered this Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter for dry hair by The Body Shop. It is a very natural product with no silicones, colourants or parabens. It costs £8 for this 500ml tub, which is very affordable compared to the high end brands products.

I have used this a couple of times, you need to leave it on your hair after shampooing for at least 5 minutes. I did notice that my hair was extremely soft after using this product. I haven't used it enough to give a true verdict. I can say though that it leaves my hair smelling amazing!

I would recommend giving it a try if you have dry hair I do think it makes a difference.

Thank you for reading!

Make Up | Soap&Glory Haul


Hey guys,

Today I want to share with you my recent purchases from Soap&Glory. There are some new products recently been released by them and I couldn't wait to get my hands on a couple of them!

The first product I new I wanted to pick up is the Supercat Skinny Eyeliner in the shade Galactic Black. I have the other Supercat liner but I find it so hard to use as the nib is quite large, which makes it harder to create a subtle wing liner look. So when I found out that there was going to be a skinny version I was so excited. I cannot wait to use this and give you my verdict after some extensive use!

Next I picked up yet another brow product, the Archery Volu-Boost Brow Fibre Gel in the shade Talk of the Brown. I am always testing brow gels and the tiny brush on this one looks so easy to use.

Lastly I picked up a lipstick, Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lipstick in Super Nude from their new Nude Collection. I love Soap&Glory lipsticks they smell lovely and have a really creamy texture. I wanted to pick a very true nude shade, rather than pink nude which I have hundreds of! I wanted something very cool and neutral, this looks like it is going to be a very good shade, especially for an everyday look.




All in all I am very excited about these new products and will of course write my reviews after using them for a month or so for a true result.

Thanks for reading as always!

Skincare | Derma Spa Gradual Tan by Dove


Hey guys,

Today I wanted to share with you my go to gradual tanner, Derma Spa Summer Revived, by Dove. I bought this back in the May I think and have been using it ever since. It gives a beautiful subtle tan. I use this twice a week and thats enough to keep up a light tan. You need to be careful when applying to elbows and also make sure to wash your hands after applying. It doesn't smell like fake tan either.

Also enhances a natural tan as well, great after coming back from holiday and wanting to keep up that tan. Especially as in the UK this summer has not been filled with too much sunshine!

All in all a great product, I highly recommend!

Thanks for reading.

Maku Up | Face Form Palette by Sleek

Hey guys,

Today I want to share another new purchase it's this little contour kit from Sleek. I heard a lot about Sleek's amazing face palettes. This is the Face Form Palette by Sleek in Light. I have used this a couple of times and the contour shade is perfect for creating a soft look. The blush is very rosy so its not something I like to use everyday as I prefer a subtler look. However, it is a very pigmented blush shade I can't fault it on the quality. The highlight is a lovely soft everyday highlight, I have another Sleek highlight palette which is VERY shimmery but this one is very natural.


Overall it is very good for everyday use and also great for travelling with.

Thanks for reading!

Haircare | Rainforest Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner by The Body Shop


Hey guys,

Today I wanted to share with you that I repurchased the natural Rainforest Shampoo and Conditioner from The Body Shop. This time I bought the one designed for moisturising your hair.

I wrote a post not that long ago about purchasing this shampoo and conditioner from the Body Shop to see if by using haircare with no silicones, sulphates, colourants and parabens if it would help with my sensitive scalp. It has made a huge difference to my scalp condition, I never have an itchy scalp anymore. If you suffer from a sensitive scalp I highly recommend this haircare range.

It smells amazing too just like the haircare from my salon. This Rainforest Moisture set contains pracaxi oil, manketti nut oil and Community Trade honey and sugar. Also smells divine and it sounded ideal for my hair.

I cannot recommend this enough! I love it.

Thanks for reading!

Make Up | Soft Luxe by Tanya Burr


Hey guys,

I recently purchased two new products from the new Soft Luxe Collection from Tanya Burr Cosmetics. I decided to buy one of the new eyeshadow palettes and one of the matte liquid lipsticks.

The eyeshadow palette I purchased is the Enchanted Dream Eyeshadow Palette. I choose to buy this as I have one of the original eyeshadow palettes and the eyeshadows are really great quality. This palette has very natural plummy colours in it apposed to my other palette which is more bronze/golden shades. This palette is great for creating an everyday look as well as a night out look depending on how you use the colours. My favourite colour so far is Berry Souffle is a matte shade this one is ideal for an everyday look worn on its own. These palettes cost £5.99 which is a very good price for such good quality eyeshadows. Great to travel with as well.


The second item I bought was one of the Soft Luxe Liquid Lipsticks in the shade Martha Moo. This is a lovely nude matte lipstick with a hint of pink. I find these particular shades look great on my skin tone. The lipstick comes out slightly darker once it has dried. I have to say after wearing it a couple of times since buying this, it feels quite drying on my lips but it does last a long time so that's probably why. This lipstick is £5.99 which is also a great price.


       


Overall I am very happy with my new purchases and would recommend you give them a go as well!

Make Up | Brow Gel, Eyeko


Hey guys,

Today I want to review this brow product. I got this as a freebie in InStyle Magazine. I had already heard that this product was very good.

I have been using it for almost 4 weeks now and can say that I have been using this non stop. I really like it, it's tinted slightly and really holds my brows in place.

I do fill my brows in before applying this as it isn't enough for my brows on its own. I have very fair light brows so if you have thick dark brows you will not need to use anything else.

Overall, lovely product and highly recommend it.

Thanks for reading!

Skincare | Honeymania Body Scrub


Hey guys,

I was recently gifted these two items and I thought I would give my review of them. This is the Honeymania, Body Scrub by The Body Shop and green Bath Gloves also from The Body Shop. I have been using this for couple of weeks now. I have found it especially helpful to look after my tan since coming home from my holiday.

It smells gorgeous but I love the Honeymania scent anyway so knew that would be a winner. I was also given some exfoliator gloves to use this product with. I have used it both with and without the gloves. Its great either way, but I was getting a lot of flaky skin on my elbows and the gloves work a treat with exfoliating it away.

I only use an exfoliator twice a week in the bath, normally when I want to put gradual tan on. It just helps revive the skin ready to apply my tan after having my bath. Its an excellent little routine I have and means I am maintaining my tan well!



Overall a great product, and I would highly recommend using it this time of year to keep up your tan.

Thanks for reading!

Fragrance | Sweet Inspirations Haul


Hey guys,

I recently purchased these new products from Zoella Beauty. This from the new collection which came out the end of May, Sweet Inspirations.

From the other two collections I have always tended to buy the bubble bath and the body mist. So that's the first two items I am trying from the new collection, the Body Mist and Bath Latte Bath and Shower Milk.

This new collection is a scent of sweet almond , cocoa and honey. I have been using the body mist a lot already and I do like it, its not as nice as my body shop vanilla scent as I imagined it to smell similar to that.

I haven't started using the Bath Latte yet so can't give any review on that but I am excited to start using it!

I will give a full review on these products in the future! First thoughts on the fragrance are I like I don't love but it might grow on me over time.

Thanks for reading!

Make Up | White Eyeliner Review


Hey guys,

Today, I would like to review this recent purchase and give you my verdict on it. I bought this liner along with a blue and black shade. This is by Rimmel London, Colour Precise Eyeliner in White.

I have tried to use this several times and it is so hard to work with. This a shame as I was so excited to create some amazing looks with this liner. It isn't very pigmented it comes out a wishy washy watery consistency. It also rubs off really easily and you cannot build up it up as it comes off.

It just doesn't work and I am very disappointed. As you can see in the photo below for how it looks on the eyelid, and thats the best I could manage.


Overall, I would not recommend these eyeliners as they aren't very pigmented, hard to apply and rub/transfer really easily.

Thanks for reading!

Eyecare | Mavala Double-Lash Conditioner


Hey guys,

Today, I wanted to review this new product I have discovered. I knew these eyelash conditioners existed but most cost around £50, this one costs £12 from Boots a much cheaper option so I thought I'd see if it would make any difference.

It's by Mavala, Double-Lash Conditioner. You apply it to clean lashes every evening and it can also be applied to your brows if you wish. I do tend to apply to both every night. I have been using this product every night for about 3 weeks, I have shown a before and after picture below...

Before
After

I think that looking at these two photos there is a definite difference. I definitely feel the condition of my lashes is much stronger and fuller but I wasn't sure if much difference has change in the length. However looking at the photos above they do look slightly longer not a huge charge in length though.

Overall, I do recommend giving this product ago definitely keeps your lashes in great condition.

Last night in Mykonos we had one of the most romantic dinners at Katerina restaurant



Amazing sunset from Little Venice

This was a lovely holiday and I would recommend going there if you would like a very chilled holiday with lots of sunshine. We hired a quad bike to get around the island for 4 days of our 5 day stay this was well worth it. All in all lovely holiday.

Thanks for reading!
