YesStyle Haul #1

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," Dickens wrote, as he made his way through the YesStyle site and found himself confronted with all the K-Beauty joy his little heart could handle, knowing full well the impact it would likely have on his wallet.  Probably.  At least, that's how it's been for me since I found out about Yes Style recently, and now there's no turning back.  I actually found it because I was looking to find a de[...]

Pur Pro X Etienne Ortega Eyeshadow Palette

I've dabbled with Pur makeup on and off for years, so I'm definitely familiar with the brand, but it seems over the past couple of years it's taken a new direction that I really like; the products just seem a lot more trendy, the vibe of the brand seems much more upbeat and there are a lot of lustworthy launches on their main page.  Today I wanted to show you the amazing Pur Pro X Etienne Ortega Eyeshadow Palette, because it really is fantastic.[...]

Mask Monday: Ecooking Peeling Mask

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* If this is anything other than your first time visiting my blog, you'll probably know that I'm a bit of a mask fan and I always believe that one of the best mask treatments you can add to your routine is an acid mask, as they do so much in so little time, that even the beauty-weary would be able to find a couple of minutes to indulge.  I have my firm favourites when it comes to acid masks as I like one that'll do all the[...]

Cica in Skincare – Why You Need It and What to Try

Cica is an ingredient that's suddenly become very relevant in my skincare routine over the past year ago, as it's one of those ingredients that really does what it promises to do.  Centella Asiatica, or Cica for short, is a medical herb that's regularly featured in Asian skincare, particularly many of the most reputable K-Beauty brands, and it's an ingredient that's slowly starting to find it's way into more of our high street ranges too, with No[...]

Foundation Files: Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF42

*PR Samples/Aff. Links*  I was so excited to see the arrival of Missha to Feel Unique as it's one of those brands that I've always lusted after, plus I'm going through a real K-Beauty phase too, so I need all the K-Beauty joy! I was sent a couple of Missha bits including the Vitamin B12 Double Hydrop Booster, which is one of those products that just slots in everywhere - a great bit of skincare - but today I'm sharing my thoughts on the Missha M[...]

Real Techniques Brushes – New Design

I can't imagine there is a make-up lover alive who doesn't love Real Technique Brushes, as not only are they amazingly designed and very affordable, they're also innovative and attractive too, making them pretty much perfect.  The old style brushes are slowly being phased out to make way for the new designs, which I really think work so well for the brushes - there's a more sophisticated feel, with brushed chrome effect, extra-long ferrules with[...]

bareMinerals Floral Utopia

*PR Samples/Aff. Links* The minute I saw the bareMinerals Floral Utopia collection I knew I needed it in my life: pretty packaging? Yup.  Gorgeous spring shades? Definitely.  Formulas that flatter? 100%.  This is one of those collections that really tap into all the pleasure levels associated with beauty, as not only are the products gorgeous to look at and fun to use, the colours themselves are incredibly pretty and can slot into any kind of make[...]

Morphe Glamabronze Face & Body Bronzer

*PR Samples* The Morphe Glamabronze Face & Body Bronzer is a recently launched bronzer available in three shades.  What I really like about the shade range is that it's categorised by tan depth rather than matched by skin tone, so you have three levels available depending on what sort of finish you fancy.  Each bronzer comes packaged in a large and sturdy case with mirror, making them well suited to travel. All three bronzers are a[...]

First Look: Tropic Makeup

*PR Samples* Tropic are a really interesting brand that have defied the odds to become incredibly successful, not just because they have Susie Ma at the helm and Alan Sugar behind the scenes, but because, actually, the products are really good and do offer something a bit different to the already drenched beauty market.  The skincare utilises sustainably sourced Amazonian ingredients, resulting in some natural yet really results-driven products tha[...]

Mavala 60th Anniversary (LE releases and John Lewis Roadshow)

*PR Samples* Mavala have been around for 60 years, can you believe that? To celebrate this mega milestone they have released a couple of Limited Edition releases alongside a promotional road show offering fans free shape and polishes.  The first of the LE releases is the Pure Diamond polish, which is a silver holographic glitter that perfectly marks the silver anniversary of the brand. The second LE release is the one I find most exciting, wh[...]

Boots Haul – March 2019

It's been a while since I had a little binge at Boots, so last month I took myself to my favourite one (Brent Cross - it's just had a makeover and now I can't find anything) to have a little mooch about and see what took my fancy. The Bleach London Smoky duo is a pair I've had my eye on for a while, as it speaks to my need to keep my hair as ashy and grungy as possible - "smoky" is a really good way of describing it as I love the idea of smoky[...]
