Beauty Pie Order #1: One Month On

As I'm now a Beauty Pie subscriber, I thought it might be a good idea to follow up my un-boxing posts with a look at what I actually liked most from each order; so kind of mini reviews of each product to hopefully help you decide what you grab for yourself if you're a subscriber too.  Check out my intro post here. The Unbeatable Concealer: unfortunately I picked the wrong shade of this as I went for shade 50 which is very pale and too pale[...]

Estee Lauder Companies Beautiful Escape Second Edition

I am absolutely loving the Estee Lauder beauty collection boxes are they are always so fantastically well curated, containing lots of goodies that everyone wants.  I particularly love them as Estee Lauder are mostly luxury brands, but these boxes give people who might not normally be able to stretch to the high price point a chance to try a great variety of products, hopefully finding a new favourite to invest in! I love these boxes and I particu[...]

My First Beauty Pie Order (June 2018)

Regular readers will know that I featured Beauty Pie when it first launched as I was sent a little introductory kit.  I wasn't overly excited with the whole concept as at the time, it was small and nothing really grabbed me.  Since launch, they've drastically extended their line, and I found myself regularly checking the site and finding products I actually really wanted.  For those who are unfamiliar, Beauty Pie promises luxury products for a[...]

QVC UK TSV: Elemis 4-Piece Pro-Collagen Anti-Ageing Heroes Collection

I'm always excited to feature an Elemis QVC UK TSV, and when it turns out it's going to be a heroes collection, I'm even happier! The Elemis 4-Piece Pro-Collagen Anti-Ageing Heroes Collection contains four brilliant products from the existing collection, three of which are full-sized, with the final product being a very decent deluxe sample size. One of my favourite Elemis products is the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm - a gorgeously rich, no[...]

Four Brilliant Beauty Sales Happening Right Now

There are some great Summer sales at the mo (or "seasonal reductions" as fancy-pants Selfridges like to call it) with lots of beauty bargains to be found.  Honestly, I am struggling to convince myself that I don't need more Revolution palettes and Zoeva brushes.  With that in mind, I thought I'd share a quick look at four of my favourite current sales: As with everything Revolution Beauty does, the sale is MEGA.  As you'd expect, there's[...]

Nudestix Pick A Palette

If you follow me on Instagram (if you don't, please do, I'm always on there - find me here) then you'll know that I received a Nudestix palette last week and I've been pretty much obsessing with it ever since.  Nudestix are crayon-style products in a variety of forms and finishes that put the joy back into make-up, by allowing you to be a bit more casual and creative with the looks you achieve. The particular Nudestix set I have is the Nud[...]

A Fantastic Father’s Day Gift from Armani

There are just a few days left to pick up your Father's Day presents, so if you've left it a bit late, this fantastic Armani Code EDT is a great option to go for as there are so many ways to make it a really personal, lovely, impressive gift! First of all, you can get it gift wrapped at Debenhams which is a free service that ensures it looks really professional - I am absolutely rubbish at wrapping presents, so any kind of gift wrapping service re[...]

Cult Beauty Palette Party (20% off a HUGE selection of palettes)

I was thinking last week that I really need to find a good, cool and ashy, taupey palette (any recommendations would be great please!) and then I got an e-mail today about the Cult Beauty Palette Party, and of course, being a beauty addict, I saw this as a total sign that I needed a load more palettes to add to my already ridiculous collection. What is it about a gorgeous palette that's so enticing? Cult Beauty are throwing a Palette Party, whi[...]

ESPA Beauty Explorer Collection (Review and Competition)

My love for ESPA is well documented on here, as they're one of those minority brands that gets balance of pampering and results just right.  They do fantastic skincare that I really rate, plus beautiful bath and body products that are amazing too, so you can definitely count me as an ESPA fan! They've just released as new set, the ESPA Beauty Explorer Collection, that makes me want to book a holiday so I can pack this set up and use it exclusivel[...]

Murad Retinol Youth Collection Deal

Just a super quickie heads-up on the current deal that Murad are offering on a collection of their Retinol Youth products, which I thought I'd flag as there have been quite a few new releases from the brand recently, with the Retinol Youth products being some of their biggest new arrivals.  I have the Retinol Youth Renewal Serum and it's really good, so I'm looking forward to trying the other products in the range. The Murad Retinol Youth Col[...]

The Beauty Box by Funmi Fetto (Estée Lauder Brands)

How fab are the Estée Lauder brands beauty boxes? I'm so glad they appear to be a regular thing as they're such a great way to get your hands on a selection of EL brand products, from favourites such as Clinique, Mac, Bobbi Brown, and of course Estée Lauder itself.  The last one appeared to be very popular, and I can see this one being similarly appealing.  Here's a look at what you get: Full-size Clinique Cheek Pop in Berry Pop Clinique[...]
