Happy New Year everyone!

Can you believe that its 2018 already? It’s crazy!

I wish you all a healthy and happy year ahead and hope it is filled with positivity, happiness and love.

Speaking of love… this year is the year I get MARRIED! On September the 9th I will be getting married to the love of my life and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life together. We have just this second booked our honeymoon which is super exciting and just need to finalise a few final details for our trips!

As I said I truly think that this year will be great. Looking back on the last year for my blog, it has grown so much and I have had some AMAZING opportunities working with brands and connecting with new people. I don’t usually do resolutions for the New Year but I would love to continue to make my blog and youtube channel grow and also discover more beautiful blogs/influencers too!

Guys, I think im in love…

I think I have found the BEST matte lipstick collection yet!

I was lucky enough to be sent the NEW Bourgois Rouge Velvet collection to try out and boy oh boy oh boy…. They are unreal.

The guys over at @Bourjois and @Influenster teamed up and sent out 12 of the most highly pigmented matte shades and they are truly beautiful.

I have never seen so much pigment in a lipstick and the quality is outstanding. The product itself is very rich and creamy but dries into a matte long lasting feel that will last up to 24 hours.

If you guys want to check out some swatches and see how PERFECT this product applies then look no further…

Does it work? COCO BRIGHT Teeth Whitening by Instant Whites + DEMO

Uncategorized

Well hey there!

I know I know, it’s been a bit of time since my last post on here but I PROMISE this is a good one!

I don’t know about you guys but in the summer there is nothing I love more than a good tan and sparkling white teeth to match! I think it looks great for pictures and for my upcoming wedding I definitely wanted to try out some products ready for my big day!

teeth

And no I do not look like ross… just yet…..

I was sent a product from the company INSTANT WHITES to try out and test for you guys and share my experiences with you and I have to say I am so impressed….

If you’ve ever seen those Instagram pictures of celebs holding a blue UV light and neon white teeth, yep that is now me with the COCO BRIGHT WHITENING KIT! (I don’t really mean neon, I mean a dazzling bright white smile)

I was initially a bit concerned as I have never used a teeth whitening product that included a UV light or activated gels so I was nervous at the thought but boy was I wrong…

You can check out my video here of my review and demo or just look below for a bit of light reading…….

 

These products are clinically proven and used and made by dentists and contain NO PEROXIDE at all! Wowzaa!!

The product is super easy and comes with simple instructions, the mouth guard (a bit like a gum shield) is filled with the activated gel and placed in the mouth, the UV light is also placed in front and that’s how it stays for 30 minutes!

After a very slobbery and slimy 29.67839 minutes later you take out the kit and rinse, leaving a minty whiter smile after the first go! I was very surprised at seeing even a slight result after the first use but the most noticeable difference was after the second attempt.

I DO NOT use this product every day as I don’t want to affect my enamel so I use this twice a week at the moment and I have been loving the results!

Take a look at the before and after results from ONE WEEK of use.

I highly recommend if you guys if you guys are looking for an AFFORDABLE teeth whitening product then give this one a go, as you now now it actually works! The only thing I would say is keep a ton of tissues handy as you will dribble quite a lot just like I did…..
Make sure you check these guys out on their socials to check out their latest updates:

MUA Metallic Liquid Lipstick SWATCHES

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

Ok, so im a little obsessed with liquid lipsticks..

and when I saw METALLIC versions from MUA – I just had to buy them.

I’ve really been loving matte liquid lipsticks lately and how the look and last throughout the day (I always find they make my lips appear more full).

Metallic shades are great for all year round but I thought particularly in winter, I will be glistening like snow…

I purchased three different shades from the brand MUA, which is one of my all time favourite budget beauty brands. The quality of the products is incredible and the prices are even better.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

These lipsticks were all £2 each making them such a bargain I couldn’t resist. I am loving the packaging designs of the products to really reflect the metallic and sleek vibes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The first shade is called ‘Luster‘ and its this beautiful shimmery gold/beige. As you can see, its highly pigmented and very rich. It has a really creamy texture which was surprising as I thought it was going to be quite drying.

sam_1241sam_1243

I feel like a snow queen or some form of mythical being wearing this. It is super reflective but surprisingly wearable. Its still a buildable product and you can make it more and more rich in depth as you go.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The second shade is called ‘Glint‘. This shade is a shimmery brown/gold with hints of silver. With this colour a little really does go a long way.

sam_1245sam_1244

Im not too keen on this shade. It was a bit difficult to blend and get and even coat. Im not usually one for dark grey/brown lip shades but I do like the colour! Im sure with a few more layers I could even thing out.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The last shade is called ‘Blaze‘. This is absolutely ideal for winter with its rich berry colour. As you can see, its not complete pigment coverage which is nice as again, its blendable.

sam_1250sam_1249

I really do LOVE this colour, its such a warm tone that goes well with my skin shade. This colour had a lot and I mean A LOT of glitter.. which isnt a bad thing..

Who doesn’t like glitter?

Im defo learning to love metallic after these bad boys.

Let me know which one is your favourite and if you have any recommendations for liquid lipsticks!

Ted Baker Treasure Trove + Swatches

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you are looking forward to 2017 and what it has to bring.

I had a lovely Christmas with some beautiful presents and every year me and my sister get some form of Ted Baker product. (It’s kind of tradition now!)

And every year I am blown away by the quality and detail of the products and packaging. I’m a sucker for pretty boxes or bags so my collection of Ted Baker merchandise has grown and grown over the years.

This year was no exception, with its stunning pastel floral theme – Im in heaven.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

See what I mean? BEAUTIFUL!

Inside are a few of my favourite beauty products from the 2016 collection which match the colour scheme perfectly.

Below I have included swatches and detailed photos of each of my favourites.

Bronzer/ Rose gold illuminating powder

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I had a very similar one from last years collection which I am still using today! It as a swivel mirror which is ideal for a quick touch up and the rose gold packaging…. LOVE IT!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The blush is a very soft and delicate colour that will suit any skin tone. Its a very light weight product but extremely pigmented. The bronzer again is rich in colour but also has tiny bits of shimmer to really create a sunkissed look.

Eye shadow Trio

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This trio compact is gorgeous. Again, a really nice size to put in my handbag if im out and about with a decent sized mirror too.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Colour wise, they have a neutral undertone to all of them and look very delicate on the skin. The first shade is a dusky beige pink with would look STUNNING just sweeped over the lids. The second is a super shimmery metallic bronze that would look lush in the crease blended out and the third shade is this deep rich charcoal grey. As you can see, all extremely pigmented and would work well with a flat or blending brush.

Contouring and eye shadow brush

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Eeeeeek! How cute do these look? I love the pink ombre effect on the tips and they are so soft its unreal. They are almost too pretty to use!

Nail Polish

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Ive always been a massive fan of the Ted Baker polishes. They are always great quality with no lumps or gooey bits, really great pigment and rich colour. How pretty is that pastel lilac pink? Perfect for spring I think.

Rose Lipstick

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

A pop of pink with this pink rose shade. I like to create a display in my room of my Ted Baker lipsticks as they just look so gorgeous all lined up together.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It is probably one of the most vibrant lipsticks I have ever owned and will look great with a tan in Summer and in the upcoming Spring months too. It has a very creamy texture and glides on to the skin effortlessly.

Tinted Lip Balm

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This rose gold balm has not left my bag since Christmas day. It has been my go to balm for the last week.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I find all Ted Baker lip products super rich and creamy but this one leaves my lips feeling so hydrated and moisturised. It has a subtle nude/pink tone which I love as it goes with anything.

Eye brow pencil

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I usually use a powder or gel to do my eye brows but im not adverse to trying a pencil from time to time.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The texture was not as soft as previous pencils tried but it is very rich in colour and its actually a good match to my colour at the moment. Im sure it will come in handy for getting precision!

What a selection.

As mentioned previously, Im always so in love with the design, quality and packaging of the TB products and I think this year has to be my favourite so far.

Do you have any favourite makeup packaging designs or had any Ted Baker products? I would love to add to my collection!

2016 Top 5- Highlighters

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

It’s New Years Eve, almost another year over..

and what better way to end the year, with a touch of sparkle right?

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am obsessed with highlighter. (or anything sparkly or shiny…)

Over the past few years as they have become more and more popular, I have tested my fair share and have developed my favourite collection from 2016.

From liquid, to cream to powder styles, I’ve tried them all and have narrowed it down to my all time faves.

Benefit High Beam

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I think im not the only one to say that this little thing packs a glittery punch. I was always a bit sceptical of liquid highlighters as most that I have tried always brought my foundation off with them and produced little or no highlight.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This however, is perfect. Its a very soft pink cream shade with a super reflected glow. Its very natural and gives a healthy look to my skin without me looking like a piece of tin foil. A little really does go a long way and I find that using my fingers to blend in to the skin works the best for me.

You can purchase this at most drug stores or from Benefit for about £19.50, A bit on the pricey end of things but it truly lasts forever.

Goddess of Love by IHEARTMAKEUP

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I have had this for a year now and it is still going strong. This powder highlights is beautiful, and so is the packaging right?

Its a very light weight and fine pressed powder that does no get cakey with wear. It has a strong reflective glow to it, a bit more iridescent than High Beam.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The colour is a pearly white and this swatch is just after one sweep so its super pigmented. With this highlighter I use a fan brush as it picks up a lot product and gently dusts over the skin. You can really build this product up as well so you can have a subtle everyday look too. You can find it in your local Superdrug or online, but its a bargain as well at £4.99, this bad boy is a steal.

Revlon Photoready Instafix Highlighting Stick

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

On to cream highlighters with the Revlon highlighting stick, this product glides on to the skin effortlessly. It is quite handy to throw in my handbag for on the go shimmer and super easy to blend with my fingers.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The colour is darker than the previous products and works amazing with a tan for that summer glow. The shade I have is called Starlight and as you can see, very pigmented so again, a little goes a long way.

Its £9.99 for this product which is a bit much for it in my opinion but again, im sure it will last quite a while, especially in summer.

Makeup Obsession customised palette

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

How stunning is does this look.

This personalised palette from Makeup Obsession was from my sister for my birthday and she has filled it with my favourite shades and colours. The highlight in here is on the top right hand corner and is a cream balm.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Ive got the shade Gilded, which a a bright pearl white. It is really creamy and thick so it does need blending quite well. I find that the warmth from my finger tips does the job well but it creates the most beautiful shimmer and fresh dewy look.

The individual pan was £3.00 from Boots and fits in to any Makeup Obsession palette.

Makeup Revolution Radiance palette

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

An oldy but a goody.

This palette is great for everyday wear with my favourite shade being the middle one. Its lighter than the other two which is perfect from my skin tone. It does need to be built up to really get the lovely pigment but when it is on its divine.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This provides a natural fresh skin look without the weight of a heavy feeling product. I use a fan brush to apply this as I have much more control over the powder. The mirror is really good as its larger than most too.

From Makeup Revolution its a bargain for £8.


And that is my Top 5 for 2016. If I had to name a favourite, I think it would be Benefit High Beam but I wear all of these shown.

I would love to know any other recommendations from you guys or share your favourites with me in the comments!

Enjoy the rest of the holidays and I hope you all have a

Happy New Year!
