June Favourites 2019

If you've been with me a while, you'll remember I used to do a favourites list each month that would focus on the five products I favoured most of all, but I recently decided to lift that limit so I could include more of the things I love.  Today, I regret that, as my June 2019 Favourites list is huge! There have been so many great products making their way into my regular routine, so I had to share them all.  Get comfy, this is a long one...[...]

It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Facial Mists

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  I absolutely had to start both the week and the month with a post on these gorgeous new skincare launches from It's Skin, as they are so bright, beautiful, fun and full of joy! The It's Skin Power 10 Formula Facial Mists consists of four mists, two of which are water based and the other two are milky.  The only one I don't have here is the Vb Sebum Mist, which provi[...]

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[...]

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[...]

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[...]

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.[...]

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[...]

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[...]

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[...]
