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[...]

Morphe Glamabronze Face & Body Bronzer

*PR Samples* The Morphe Glamabronze Face & Body Bronzer is a recently launched bronzer available in three shades.  What I really like about the shade range is that it's categorised by tan depth rather than matched by skin tone, so you have three levels available depending on what sort of finish you fancy.  Each bronzer comes packaged in a large and sturdy case with mirror, making them well suited to travel. All three bronzers are a[...]

First Look: Tropic Makeup

*PR Samples* Tropic are a really interesting brand that have defied the odds to become incredibly successful, not just because they have Susie Ma at the helm and Alan Sugar behind the scenes, but because, actually, the products are really good and do offer something a bit different to the already drenched beauty market.  The skincare utilises sustainably sourced Amazonian ingredients, resulting in some natural yet really results-driven products tha[...]

Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller

Occasionally something will show up online that I know is going to cause a lot of excitement, which is exactly what I thought would be the case with the Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller when it first popped-up on their Instagram feed.  Consequently I kept my eye on the Beauty Pie site to see when it would become available, then last week, Caroline Hirons posted about its imminent arrival and I started refreshing the "accessories" pag[...]

Foundation Files: Chantecaille Future Skin Oil-Free Foundation

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25890" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] The Chantecaille Future Skin Oil-Free Foundation is a product I've had my eye on for a while as it sounds and looks quite unlike anything else I have in my collection.  Promising lightweight, adjustable coverage in a comfortable and light-reflecting gel formula, this is one of those products that quickly became cult for very good reason. Fo[...]

Origins Blooming Sheer Lip Balms

*PR Sample/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25877" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] The Origins Blooming Sheer Lip Balms are a brilliant new take on the traditional tinted lip balm, with a little bit of a twist.  I would say these are more like incredibly hydrating lipsticks, as the pigmentation is really decent (and very buildable) and the wear is surprisingly good for a product that's so hydrating.  There's also a really good[...]

Kiko Waterflower Magic Collection

[lookbook id="25813" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links* Kiko are the absolute kings of creating collections that you just want.  They're always packed full of pretties that are so enticing and appealing, and the Kiko Waterflower Magic Collection is a perfect example of this; expect pretty colours, beautifully feminine packaging, and products that are not only gorgeous to look at, but actually rea[...]

Zoeva Summer Strobe Spectrum Powder Palette

[lookbook id="25797" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. Links* I was sent the Zoeva Summer Strobe Spectrum Powder Palette as a surprise and I'm really glad I was, as it's not the sort of colourway I would choose for myself, but I absolutely love it! I always favour cool-tones even though I'm quite neutral, so I can get away with either, but I have to say, the warmer tones in this beautiful highlighter pal[...]

Foundation Files: Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15

[lookbook id="25785" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. Links* As promised and further to my post on the new Bobbi Brown Foundation extension shades, here's a full review of the Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15, which is one of the two Bobbi Brown Foundations (the other being the Skin Foundation Stick) now available in an impressive 43 shades.  I was matched to the shade Sand which[...]

Bobbi Brown Foundation Extension Shades

A few weeks ago I popped along to the Bobbi Brown Pro Studio on Poland Street (well worth a visit if you fancy a splurge) to find out more about the extension shades that have been added to two of the most popular Bobbi Brown foundations: the Skin Foundation Stick and the Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15, both of which now have a staggering 43 shades each, which is mega and particularly fabulous if you really struggle to get that perfect[...]

Beauty Haul – February 2019

I think I've mentioned before that I tend to visit the Primark in the Harlequin in Watford as I love visiting that whole shopping area, especially since they extended it and it now has a Debenhams, with all the joyful beauty counters that come with.  Every time I go, I have a little beauty binge session at Primark, mainly because they have such a huge range and it's really interesting to have a nose around! I also popped to Debenhams and picked u[...]
