Up until last month, I had (not exaggerating) around 40 lipsticks sitting in my drawer, never used, just sitting there all pretty and to be honest- dusty! So I had a makeup cleanse- I gave away some to friends and binned A LOT of products I’d had for longer than I care to admit. Why did I need 40 lipsticks? I’ll never know. I went through a bit of an obsession with lip products and accumulated a whole range from high street brands to Chanel and YSL. No one- NO ONE needs that many, especially when you find what works for you and stick with it. This is what I’m calling my signature lip. Everyone has one shade of lipstick they will go for every day. Or in my case- 3 shades. This first product is fairly new to my collection and is a solid 10/10 in the ‘perfect nude… View Post

I feel like I am probably the only person in the world who has this opinion but I CAN’T STAND MATTE LIPSTICKS. There, I said it.  I have found around 3 matte lipsticks I can actually bare wearing and they are by Mac, Charlotte Tilbury and Chanel. I constantly have dry lips despite drinking gallons of water and applying lip balm by the bucket load so matte lipsticks do not work for me.  Going to sound like the worst blogger now, but i haven’t actually purchased a new lipstick in about 6 months (oh, the horror). Once I find a lip product I love, I find it difficult to move away from it and try something new. Lately it’s been a mix of Charlotte Tilbury’s Bitch Perfect and Mac’s Peach Blossom- ultimate old faves! BUT, I had a trip to my local Boots after work this week to pick up… View Post

   I’m not the hugest fan of blushers, in total I probably own around 5 or 6 (excluding palettes) just because i’m more of a bronzer gal at heart. Seriously, bronzer is essential in summer and all year round , and I’m yet to find a blusher that I fall completely in love with.  Saying that, there are some which I think can look super pretty and applied in the right way, they can give that naturally flushed look. This is what i aim for with blushers. If you can see pink on my face, then it’s too much! A subtle glow is what we are aiming for here and I have picked out three different types of blusher to give you that perfect spring time flush.   First we have the Collection Speedy Blush in 01 Tickled Pink RRP. £3.99 (currently on offer in Boots for £2.99) Collection says… View Post

I’m  always a bit ‘meh’ about  beauty boxes. There is a lot of hype around them but they never really live up to the expectations I have. I was subscribed to Birchbox for a while but cancelled as I just got fed up of recieving sample sized products. Wouldn’t it be amazing if a beauty box came out with full sized decent products? Enter Cohorted Beauty Box! For those of you who have no idea what a beauty box is, it’s  a monthly subscription in which you receive a pretty box full of 4/5 products (usually samples and maybe 1 full sized product). Sometimes ok, sometimes utter crap. So yeah. Your clued up now. So, the April cohorted beauty box arrived this morning and I am happily surprised. I had seen the contents of the March box and thought..oh hello..actual decent stuff so I’m impressed that this months had the… View Post
