Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminous Blush Trio

I might as well rename my blog Beauty Pie Geek at this rate, since I seem to be featuring Beauty Pie more regularly than any other brand at the moment, but in my defence, Beauty Pie have released some crackers recently, and I think my favourite of all has to be the new Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminous Blush Trio, even though it has an inexplicably long name, but there you go. The Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminou[...]

Sanctuary Spa Cleansers

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  Sanctuary Spa are one of those brands that I don't think gets nearly enough credit for their skincare range; in their fairly budget-friendly collection you'll find some impressive innovations alongside everyday essentials - I always remember how excited I was when they launched their Facial in a Box, although I can't seem to find them anywhere so maybe they've discon[...]

Avon Mark Epic Lip Powders

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  More often than not, I reach for the balmiest of lip products, especially in the warmer weather when I hate the feeling of anything heavy on my face, so it's all light and creamy textures that involve very little effort.  Matte lips are a really tricky product to get right, which is why I mostly avoid them as I find matte lipstick hard to wear - I'm someone who[...]

Revlon Photoready Candid Collection

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  It's been absolutely ages since I featured anything from Revlon, which is a real shame as they're a brand that are so good at coming-up with accessible and budget-friendly beauty innovations, with some very cool launches that somehow, inexplicably pass me by.  Thankfully, I was sent the newly launched, Photoready Candid collection, which is an exciting trio of base[...]

Beauty Pie Wondergloss Lip Oil Trio

Disclaimer: Purchases, although Sisley products mentioned were PR Samples.  Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  I don't know what's happened with me and my feelings towards Beauty Pie, which have gone from pretty consistent apathy for a good few months, to a sudden u-turn into obsession - I just can't get enough of that brand right now and I have to stop myself from placing another order.  I think it's because they've got[...]

Fragrance Friday: Yardley Flowerful Collection (Luxe Gardenia, Elegant Iris, Decadent Mimosa)

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  It's been absolutely ages since I've done a Fragrance Friday feature, mainly because I haven't really been calling-in/trying many new fragrances as I'm pretty happy with the few I have that I'm slowly working my way through.  Having said that, I did attend a launch a few months ago for the Yardley Flowerful Collection, which I've been keen to feature for a while as[...]

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[...]

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[...]

Recent Launches from Revolution Beauty

*PR Samples/Gifted/Existing Brand Relationship* One of the great things about Revolution Beauty is how much newness they throw at us on an almost daily basis; there is always something new when you check out their site and there's also something on their Instagram to covet.  The downside of this, prom the perspective of a blogger, is that if you're sent some new bits to feature and you don't act on it almost immediately, they lose their 'new' tag[...]

A Few New ELF Skincare Launches

I quite like what ELF have done recently, having left the UK market for a short time (or at least gone very quiet...) before shouting about their return, and with good reason, since they've completely revamped and made themselves an entirely reputable contender in the budget/high-street beauty market, with some great options for both skincare and make-up.  The ELF range is now unbelievably vast - you'll need a while to have a nose around the site[...]

Handmade Jewellery from Ammie-Ree

2018 is my 7th year blogging, which just feels unbelievable to me, as I can't believe I've managed to stick at anything for seven years.  In my blogging journey, I've made some fabulous friends via various means, including on social media.  I met Mandy online and saw her grow her Etsy jewellery store from scratch.  Recently, she kindly sent me a little selection of some of her amazing creations which I'm sharing with you today. The first[...]
