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[...]

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[...]

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[...]

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[...]

Real Techniques Brushes – New Design

I can't imagine there is a make-up lover alive who doesn't love Real Technique Brushes, as not only are they amazingly designed and very affordable, they're also innovative and attractive too, making them pretty much perfect.  The old style brushes are slowly being phased out to make way for the new designs, which I really think work so well for the brushes - there's a more sophisticated feel, with brushed chrome effect, extra-long ferrules with[...]
