The Beauty Expert Collection – Gold Edition

A super quickie post as it's been a crazy-busy day and I'm shattered! I've just been working through my inbox and found an e-mail about the Beauty Expert Collection - Gold Edition, which looks like a really good deal for a great collection of products, all of which fit around the gold theme.  This is a luxury box with luxury products, so theming it around gold seems like a wise choice! Here's what you get: Omorovicza Gold Flash Firming Serum 30m[...]

Benefit Box O’Powder Flash Sale (Today Only)

Few can resist the temptation of a pretty box of Benefit Box O'Powder, but they're not the cheapest blushers on the block.  Thankfully, if you're been looking for a way to justify treating yourself to one, I am here to help, as today they have a flash sale, meaning most of the powders have been discounted, with some up to 30% off. For example, Dallas and Coralista are down from £25.50 to £17.60, which is a pretty decent saving.  It seems th[...]

Secret Sales Beauty Sale (NARS, Dior, Sisley)

Here's a super quick heads-up on the Secret Sales beauty sale, which I wanted to flag as there are some decent products included from some great brands, with lots of NARS goodies, as well as Sisley, Elizabeth Arden, Butter London, Calvin Klein, and there's currently a Dior lippy too - PLUS they're offering free delivery on orders over £25.  I think you have to join the site to view the sale (joining is free, it's just so they can e-mail you thei[...]

My Beauty Pie Order – Month #2

Beauty Pie really is such a clever service that taps into my beauty-loving desire to grab myself a bargain.  Having said that, is it really a bargain? I'm committed to at least three months of spending around £40 a month on make-up - £10 membership, plus £20 - £25 on the make-up itself, then around £7 shipping - which isn't actually that cheap, is it? Having said that, I do really, really like the products - they continually impress, they lo[...]

Three Beauty Sales to Avoid if You’re Trying to Stop Spending…

I have researched this post squinting off-angle at the screen, trying not to get suckered in to buying something that I don't really need, but really want; I have the same issue every time I do these posts and I always end up buying something, but I'm really trying to exercise some restraint and save for my holiday.  My word there are some thoroughly decent beauty bargains happening at the mo.  Here are three great sites to visit if you're seeki[...]

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[...]
