Bourjois Paris Little Round Pot Blush in “Rose d’Or” Review

April 30, 2014
bourjois-blush-2

Recently, I’ve been lusting after the Bourjois blushers like nobody’s business. I admit I’ve always been a fan of their whole range, but the really good stuff is just out of my price range and I really can’t justify buying it when I already have so many things. This one however, has been following me around like a lost puppy for months, so on a recent Boots trip after finding out I had over £40 worth of points on my…

Internet Haul – Real Techniques & Make-Up Revolution

April 29, 2014
Haul April

I’ve been doing some big hauling recently, but this is the last for one a loooong time! I’ve been dying to try out some of the bits and pieces from Make-Up Revolution, so when I saw their Easter offer of a free gift with every purchase I had to take advantage!   The first thing I knew I had to have was the Scandalous Lip Collection (£1 each), the blue lipstick in particular called out to me and I’m already in…

Sunday Scents: Yankee Candle Wax Tart in “Soft Cotton”

April 27, 2014
yankee-candle-soft-cotton

My love of Yankee Candles has been ongoing for many years now. I’m always on the look out for cheap wax tarts to fill up my oil burners and usually have a good stash in the cupboard. When Gem told me that Asda had these tarts for as little as a pound, I had to get in on it. I usually pay between £0.99 and £1.50 per tart when I get them from the internet so it’s handy to know…

Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Striking

After discovering my love for matte lip finishes with the MUA Matte Lipsticks  I was eager to have a look around and see what other shine-free offerings are about. The Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms have been all over the blogosphere recently, and with all the good reviews I’ve seen it was only a matter of time  before one accidentally fell into my shopping basket. I chose Striking,  a orange-red (of course it was going to be a red!). The balm is…

Deep Steep Moisture Stick Review

April 23, 2014
deep-steep-moisture-stick

The Deep Steep Moisture Stick was received as part of my first ever Love me Beauty March Box. Since the moment I’ve taken this out the box, its been a definite staple in my everyday routine and now has pride of place amongst my hand creams on my desk. I am one to suffer dry skin I am forever carrying around tiny pots of moisturiser that either open up in the bottom of my bag or leave my hands greasy…

Nip + Fab Viper Venom Eye Fix Review

April 23, 2014
Nip + Fab Viper Venom Eye Fix

I’ve got a lot of love for Nip + Fab, so I picked this up with very high expectations. We all want those wonder products that fix everything and perform miracles, and there are so very many with such extraordinary promises that don’t follow up. This however is not one of them. The Nip + Fab Viper Venom Eye Fix is a cooling eye treatment in with a roller ball applicator that claims to smooth the look of fine lines…

MUA Matte Lipsticks Review and Swatches

  I actually picked these up a while ago, but they’ve sat in my “to be reviewed” pile for far too long so I thought it was finally time to break them out and give them some wear! I picked up all five shades available (l-R) Peachy Keen, Pouty Pink, Totally Nude, Wild Berry & Scarlet Siren, though I’ve seen that there are two more shades floating around now (which of course I will need to find and add to complete the…

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Colour in Iconic Indigo, Electric Emerald, Red-y Response & Silver Elements

Today I want to share with you another amazing Poundland find! Sally Hansen is a brand I absolutely love, and I must have at least thirty different polishes from various lines but I’ve never paid more than £1 for a single one of them! At any time you can find a variety of Sally Hansen polishes in most Poundland stores, and this week I picked up these magnetic nail colours that are so much fun!     I missed out on…

Dermalogica UltraCalming Review

April 18, 2014
dermalogica-mini-set

  You may recall many post ago Gem and I gave in to the Glamour Beauty Edit 3, one of the main perks of this being the miniature dermalogica UltraCalming starter kit. Well it may have taken a little while but I’ve finally cracked this open and put it to good use! The UltraCalming range is supposed to be well suited to those that suffer from flare ups or inflammation due to sensitivity of their skin – which sounds absolutely…
