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[...]

Cosmetics a la Carte Beach Glow Collection (Summer 2019)

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  Ready yourselves for a lengthy post as I have lots to show you in the new Cosmetics a la Carte Eye Beach Glow Collection, plus I always tend to ramble on about my love for CALC because I just find them utterly charming; if you're in London and happen to be near their Chelsea boutique then I really recommend paying them a visit, either to have a browse of their full c[...]

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[...]

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.[...]
