Beauty Pie Order – May 2019

I have a strange relationship with Beauty Pie, and as a consequence, I've decided to write-up a full post on my experience with Beauty Pie, what I like about it and what I think needs improving, so if you're undecided about whether to become a Beauty Pie member, hopefully that post will help and I'll aim to publish ASAP.  I've been saving my monthly allowance so that I could have a splurge, and I've been slowly putting together an order over the[...]

Mask Monday: L’Occitane Aqua Reotier Mineral Moisture Mask

It's been a while since I posted a new Mask Monday, as I've mostly been working my way through some existing favourites, such as the I'm From Mugwort Mask or the Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Mask, but when I returned from my holiday I found I needed something gentle yet highly moisturising, so I decided to give the L'Occitane Aqua Reotier Mineral Moisture Mask a go, which is a mineral-rich hydrating mask suitable for all skin types, tha[...]

Glossier Cloud Paints

Do you remember when Glossier launched in the UK and it was pretty much all the beauty world could talk about? I remember popping along to the launch - which was basically like a fashion show with all the hip young things standing around looking VERY serious, alongside me talking to a blogger friend about morning sickness, the glamour! - and I tried out their Milky Jelly Cleanser, thought it was fab (it is - find a mini here for £8 - link) then t[...]

Mini Mac Haul

Every so often, I like to visit the Mac counter and marvel at the array of products, textures and colours available - I so often overlook Mac as a brand to visit, but they really are reliable and have a lot to offer, so I tend to get these mini obsession sessions with them at least once a year, and one of those is currently happening now, hence my mini haul. One thing I love about Mac is how happy they are for you to sample their products b[...]

Iconic Morphe Brushes

So, I was watching a YT video recently and...did everyone apart from me know it's pronounced "mor-phy?" I had no idea and I've been saying it completely wrong, apparently.  Morphe(y) are most known, I'd say, pretty equally for their palettes and their brushes, and I was lucky enough to be sent a bit of both, with the amazing Nature Glow Palette becoming a firm favourite (honestly, I know Morphe is a range favoured by make-up artists, but if you'r[...]

Anastasia Beverley Hills x Alyssa Edwards Palette

Few things kickoff an Instagram furore quite as effectively as a new ABH palette launch, so yesterday, when the news broke of the new Anastasia Beverley Hills x Alyssa Edwards Palette collaboration, within minutes it was inescapably everywhere! Alyssa Edwards is an American Drag Performer, who's most known for her appearance on RuPaul's Drag Race.  As we all know, Drag Queens are the true queens of eye make-up, so of course this collaboration is[...]

Homedics TotalClean Desktop Air Purifier

*PR Sample*  My son and I both really struggle with allergies, and ever since we moved home a couple of years ago, our allergies have got so much worse, so I rely heavily on the aid of air purifiers and I currently have four - not even kidding.  I have a lovely big one for my living room (the Homedics True HEPA Tower - I've had it for years and it's still going strong), one for each bedroom and a spare for backup.  I always make sure the very[...]

Burt’s Bees All Aglow Lip and Cheek Sticks

*PR Samples/Aff. Links* My first ever introduction to a really good cream blusher was from Bobbi Brown, which came in a kind of stumpy little stick and the formula was beautiful.  For some reason they were altered, with both the packaging and formula changing, which was a real loss.  The Burt's Bees All Aglow Lip and Cheek Stick are the closest I've come to those beautiful blushers, and I would say everyone needs at least one of these in their[...]

Smashbox Crystalized Collection

*PR Samples/Aff. Links* The Smashbox Crystalized Collection is a collaboration with Bri Luna, who is the founder of The Hoodwitch and an expert in the power of crystals, so this collection is inspired by the magic of crystals in every sense; the shades are crystal-themed and the packaging itself is embellished with crystal-like decoration - this is crystal powered beauty and it's gorgeous!   There's a little bit of everything the c[...]

Ezitan Sunless Tanning Range now at Fragrance Direct

*AD - SPONSORED CONTENT*  Next week I start my Summer Holiday in Greece, and I can't wait! When I would holiday in my 20's, my main focus would be getting as much sun as possible, whereas nowadays I'm Factor 50 all the way, but I still want to get that sunkissed glow that only a tan can provide, so I've started looking into the available sunless tanning options.  Fragrance Direct have recently starting stocking the Ezitan range, so I've tried a[...]
