Adorli – The Perfect Marketplace For Cruelty-Free & Organic Beauty

Happy Monday everybody! Hope you’re all well and had a lovely weekend.

Today’s post is a little different but one that I am super excited to have created and be publishing for you guys. I was approached last October by a company called The Blogger Crowd who work to link brands and influencers together and they asked if I would be interested in working with a new brand called Adorli. After some research and being provided further information about the brand, I was so excited to accept their offer and begin working with this fabulous new brand that will be launching shortly after this post goes live.

Who are Adorli?

Adorli is a new beauty marketplace who only sell brands that are 100% cruelty-free, organic and completely natural. The brand ethos is to celebrate individual beauty which is something that I’ve always believed and encouraged so much myself.

Adorli believe that purely natural products made with passion and care can cater and be suitable for people worldwide with any diverse beauty need.

You can find their brand new website here and sign up for early access to the site.

What does individuality in beauty mean to me?

To me, make-up is whatever you make it. It’s a form of art and in the end it always fits which is why I love it! Make-up is to be experimented with and is different for every single person so individuality is a massive thing for me.

For me, make-up is also the way that I express myself. You can always tell if I’m feeling fierce as I’ll either be rocking a bright red lip or an intense smoky eye. Any glam night out is accompanied with glitter for that extra added touch of sparkle.

I see make-up as my way of creating that ‘stand out in a crowd’ look, no matter crowd that may be.

What does individuality within beauty mean to you? Let me know in the comments section as I’d love to hear what it means to everybody else.

What brands will be available through Adorli?

XO Balm:

XO balm is a 100% natural treatment designed to help with dry, irritated or rough areas of skin. Their company business plan is created around consideration for economic, environmental and social sustainability. They consistently work alongside many local UK businesses and give on-going support to the charity ‘Give Bees A Chance’ – an organisation who work to help the bee population.

Their multi-purpose balm is creamy in texture and delivers instant hydration, leaves a protective barrier with a matte finish that will nourish and strengthen and is also fragrance and preservative-free too which means that it’s suitable for even the most sensitive of skin.

Luna Kloris:

This is one of the brands on the Adorli marketplace that caught my eye the most as I’m a sucker for the type of product that they create – luxury facial oil.

Luna Kloris was founded by health enthusiast Sahar who believes that with skin being the biggest organ of the whole body and constantly absorbing whatever we put onto it, it’s important to provide your body with a pure and natural ingredient to keep it as healthy as possible. I completely agree with this philosophy! People are so focussed on eating healthy and exercising but often forget about how important it is to have healthy skin too.

Sahar has always been influenced and inspired by ancient beauty secrets of Japanese women and after intensive skincare research, has designed a silky smooth face oil called ‘Go For The Glow’ that is made up of 100% natural ingredients and is packed with antioxidants and vitamins to help achieve that gorgeous healthy glow that we all very much want.

Maggie Ann Nail Varnish:

Maggie Ann is a UK vegan brand founded here in the UK and they create gel effect, cruelty-free nail polishes without any of the typical nasty chemicals within them.

With a carefully designed and precise brush for application, this gel effect varnish will leave you with streak-free, beautifully shiny nails for 5-7 days.

Not only do they create varnishes but they also offer 3 scented nail varnish removers in strawberry and grape, blueberry and pomegranate and lemon and lime.

Ezàpè Naturals:

Ezàpè Naturals create 100% natural skincare products that are packed with certified organic, nutrient-rich and unrefined ingredients that are suitable for the most dry and sensitive of skins. They consistently work to reduce their carbon footprint and are committed to helping our wonderful little planet.

I particularly love the look of their chamomile balm as anything with chamomile wins my heart! It relaxes me, helps me sleep and smells absolutely gorgeous. This balm contains anti-inflammatory ingredients which means that it’s an ideal product for irritated and dry areas of skin.

There are just a few of the brands that will be available through the brand new Adorli site! Each and every brand have incredible values and something so individual about each of them that they deserve all the support and love in the world.

Make sure you follow the link to sign up for early access to the site! Here it is again if you missed it.

Also make sure to give them a follow on social media to keep up to date with what they’re up to!

Find their Instagram here and find their Facebook here. 

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you’re as excited about the Adorli launch as I am!

Until next time,

New In The Beauty Collection – February

I created this style of post last month as a little bit of a trial to see how popular it proved to be and it turned out that you guys loved it! So here we are with another edition of ‘New In The Beauty Collection.’

Jo Malone – Pomegranate Noir 

I’ve been curious about this fragrance for quite a long time as so many people I know wear it and it always smells absolutely beautiful on them. I’ve used Jo Malone body and hand washes for a long time now and recently fell in love with their bath oils so thought it was about time I branched out and also tried their famous fragrances too.

This one has not let me down in the slightest and I’m absolutely obsessed with wearing it. With notes of pomegranate, raspberry, plum and pink pepper, this fragrance is the perfect sweet but spicy, sensual fragrance. You can find this fragrance here. 

Violet Voss – Hashtag Palette 

The second I set eyes on this back in October on Instagram I knew that as soon as it launched, I’d need to grab it. Eyeshadow palettes are my ultimate obsession and the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette is one of my favourites within my entire collection. This palette has been exactly the same as the rest, beautifully consistent and absolutely 100% worth every penny.

Bobbi Brown – Vitamin Face Base

I’ve wanted this priming moisturising hybrid for as long as I can remember so I’m so glad to finally have it within my collection. This little beauty smoothes effortlessly, leaves  the skin feeling supple and fresh and not only does it nourish with Shea butter but it also primes the skin beautifully with glycerin too. Oh and let’s not forget that it smells absolutely divine!

Aveda –  Smooth Infusion Conditioner 

As a few people may know, I recently took the chop and decided to cut a lot of my hair off and I’m now sporting a long bob! Not only did I have a change in length but I also had a tonne of blonde highlights put through it.

When I was at the salon, the hairdresser used the Aveda Smooth Infusion conditioner on me and it made my hair feel incredible. She explained that as I now have areas that are bleached, I will need a much more hydrating conditioner to keep it nourished and soft. I purchased this conditioner and it’s been an absolute God send! Highly recommend if you’re searching for a super hydrating conditioner. You can find it here. 

Garnier – Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water

I’ve been using micellar waters for as long as I can remember and for some reason, had always overlooked this one on the shelf at Boots whilst shopping. Until recently that is.

I’ve been on a mission for the last 10 months to use products up rather than opening new ones but I simply couldn’t live within a standard micellar water so popped into Boots and picked this one up not long ago and I’m really impressed! Considering I normally use oil infused waters to help my dehydrated skin and to remove the toughest of eye make-up, I’ve got on really well with this gentle one for combination skin.

It removes all make-up easily without tugging at the skin and leaves skin feeling supple, smooth and refreshed. It doesn’t strip the skin or leave it feeling dry/dehydrated in the slightest and it’s super easy to use whilst being affordable too! Find it here. 

bareMinerals – bareSkin Serum Concealer 

I’m starting to realise that I have a slight obsession with concealers recently. I can’t stop bloody buying them so when my bestfriend Marta started banging on about how great this one was, I knew I needed it!

I’m such a big fan of bareMinerals as they’re incredible quality and products but super kind on the skin too so you don’t feel guilty layering more on if you need to.

So far, I’m really enjoying this newbie! It’s lightweight and fresh but has a beautiful buildable coverage to it and a naturally, radiant finish too. If you’re searching for a new concealer, I’d highly recommend this one. Find it here. 

That’s it for this months New In The Beauty Collection post so I hope you’ve enjoyed it! As always, any questions or comments can be left below.

Thank you so much for reading.

NEW Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara – Full Review – Is It Worth The Hype?

Happy Monday all! Hope everybody is well, had a lovely weekend and has had a fab start to February. I’m personally hoping for a much better month than January so I’ve got new goals and plans in place and quite simply, can’t wait to get shit done over the next 28 days!

As you can tell from the title of the post, today’s review will be on the brand new mascara that Benefit Cosmetics launched earlier this week. I’ve always been a massive fan of Benefit mascaras (Roller Lash being my fave!) so had high hopes for the newbie.

Their existing mascaras, They’re Real! and Roller Lash currently hold the two top spots within the prestige UK make-up market for mascaras and after sitting firmly at those spots for several years, I wouldn’t be surprised if this new addition quickly becomes number 3.

If you follow Benefit on any social media, you would have seen this launch being built up and hyped more than ever. I used to work for Benefit years ago and the last time I can remember a product being hyped up this much was when they launched their whole new brow range which was so big the UK went mad for it – so I knew this new product would be a big deal.

It’s no surprise that this mascara is already flying off of the shelves. Not only is it everywhere you look on every Benefit counter and plastered all over social media with massive influencers also loving it but Benefit are offering a gift with purchase if you buy the mascara! It’s not a bad gift either like some companies often offer. It’s a beautiful holographic pink make-up bag as pictured so well worth a cheeky new mascara purchase.

Another mascara? Really?

I imagine you’re probably thinking ‘why could Benefit possibly need another mascara when they’ve got the two best selling ones in the UK already?’ Well, I thought about that too but the answer is pretty simple actually. They’re Real! is known for providing insane amounts of length and being super long lasting whereas Roller Lash is all about delivering that fluffy curl. Volume you ask? Neither of them will give you that which is exactly why Bad Gal Bang has been created.

After researching into this mascara and getting all the nitty gritty deets, it’s actually a really clever and cool product. It’s no wonder it’s taken Benefit 5 years to create it. Yep, that’s right – 5 whole years!

Why is it so different?

Let’s be honest, there are so many mascaras on the market now that it can be pretty overwhelming walking into a beauty department and knowing where to go. It’s so important to know exactly what makes each product stand out from it’s competitors because essentially, that’s what makes you buy it, right?

There’s a lot to this clever little lash coater but to prevent me writing a VERY long blog post, I’ll just list the key points that got my attention the most.

  1. As mentioned above, it’s taken 5 long years to create! To me, that seems like one hell of a lot of tweaking, work, research and perfecting to get a product exactly how they want it. Over these 5 years, it also took 75 prototypes of the wand to get it just right
  2. The formula features aero-particles derived from Space technology (this explains the ‘out of this world’ quote that I kept seeing floating about before the launch!) The aero-particles are one of the most lightweight raw materials known to man which helps to create a featherweight feel and prevents lashes from feeling heavy and weighed down
  3. It also contains Vitamin B5 which not only conditions but also helps to strengthen lashes which long term will result in naturally thicker and fuller looking lashes
  4. Benefit claims it to be water resistant which is great as let’s be honest, nobody likes getting caught short with a running mascara on a rainy day
  5. It apparently lasts for a whopping 36 hours! Not something I’ll personally trial as I have no need to wear a mascara that long and quite frankly, the thought scares me a little but it’ll be fab for those on holiday!

What are my thoughts?

Without a doubt, this mascara definitely delivers heaps of volume as promised. Some people may find the amount of volume TOO much as it does make your lashes super thick and jet black too. Personally I like my lashes to look as thick as possible in order to frame my eyes. However, for those who don’t like a thick lash effect, this one may not be for you.

Although I really love this mascara already, I have a strong feeling that I’m going to like it even more in a month or so once it’s dried out a little. I’m not sure why but I often find this with volumizing mascaras and tend to prefer a slightly drier formula as opposed to when I first get them.

I love the packaging of this mascara, the wand is great as it’s flexible to adjust and wiggle into your lashes and the wear time is hefty as promised.

How does it compare to the other Benefit mascaras?

I’m sure this is a question that a few people want answering so I thought I’d finish the post with my answer. For me personally, Roller Lash is still my favourite. The only reason for this is that my lashes are poker straight and therefore, a curling mascara is my best friend. However, that being said, I’m really intrigued to see how Bad Gal Bang looks if I curl my lashes beforehand. I’m confident that heaps of volume with a beautiful fluffy curl will be ideal for my lashes so I’ll definitely be trying it out very soon.

That pretty much sums up my review of the new Benefit Bad Gal Bang which I have linked throughout incase you wanted to take a look but I’ll also link it here incase you missed it.

As always, please feel free to leave any questions or comments below and I’ll be sure to get back to you! Thank you so much for reading and I hope you’ve enjoyed the post.

Until next time,

Profusion Cosmetics – First Impressions & Swatches

Finally we’re clear of January and into a new month! I don’t know why but I find a new month so exciting as it means new challenges, new goals and a new to-do list to make my way through (well, attempt to make my way through and probably fail miserably) so I’m personally very glad it’s February and can’t wait to get my teeth into everything new this month.

I thought I’d start the month with another first impressions post as these always seem to be pretty popular with you guys. My most viewed blog post on here is a first impressions one so I thought why not start the month off with something similar and review a brand that’s fairly new to the UK, Profusion Cosmetics.

I was kindly sent a couple of their palettes recently and I’ve been trying them out, testing them fully and getting as much of an opinion on them as I possibly can to write this blog post. When I shared the palettes on my Instagram stories, a few people were asking for a full review so here we are!

Who are Profusion Cosmetics?

Profusion Cosmetics are a make-up brand originally founded in LA 20 years ago. They’re a brand that I’m super excited to be working with as they love colour and creativity. Their products are high quality but with an affordable price tag and they’re also cruelty-free too.

Launched in the UK last month, Profusion Cosmetics have brought to us two incredible new collections – The Artistry Collection and The Trendsetter Collection.

Strobe & Glow Artistry Palette – £12.50

If you’ve followed my blog or Instagram for a while, you’ll know that my favourite make-up product in the world is highlighter. I love nothing more than to be visible from space with a blinding highlight and if I’m not glowy, then it’s not worth leaving my house.

One of the products that I received was the Strobe & Glow highlighting palette from the Trendsetter Collection which was honestly made for me. The palette consists of 9 different shimmery powders that enable you to create a gentle ‘lit from within’ glow to a beaming, full glam glow. The shades are all beautiful when used individually or look stunning when layered over one another to create your custom shade of highlight too.

The packaging is sturdy, great for travelling and even comes with a super soft little brush for application too!

Pro Face – £15.00

This is without a doubt one of the best value for money sets I think I’ve ever come across. I’ve already decided that next time I go away for a few days, this palette will be coming with me as it literally contains everything that you need to create a full face natural or glam look.

This little beauty book of goodness contains 20 highly pigmented eyeshadows in a mix of matte, satin and shimmer finishes, 2 duo brow powders (meaning 4 different brow powder shades!) with a clear brow wax, 2 beautiful blinding highlighters, 3 blushers, 2 bronzers (both a light and a medium shade) and 2 brushes – one for the eyes and one for the face. I honestly can’t believe how much you get inside this palette and how high quality it all is too. More often that not, when you have a palette with a large number of products inside, the quality is compromised and the products end up not great. With this palette however, everything is consistently good and for the price, you literally can’t go wrong.

The packaging is a soft padded, waterproof material with the palette name embossed on the front along with a photo of what’s inside.

From what I’ve tried so far, I absolutely love Profusion Cosmetics! Their products are such fab quality considering how low they’re priced and I can’t wait to try more from the brand in the future.

Thank you so much to Fuel PR for sending over these Profusion Cosmetics goodies and giving me the chance to try out and review them.

Also a massive thank you to those of you that have read this post! I hope you’ve enjoyed the read.

Until next time,

Wonderland Make-Up – First Impressions

How the hell is it still January?! I swear this month alone feels longer than the whole of 2017 and I’ll be glad to wave January goodbye at the end of this week.

I was lucky enough to receive an email from Wonderland Make-Up several weeks ago asking if I’d like to try out and review a couple of their products so I happily accepted and I’ve been testing out the products they sent over, ready for this little blog post.

Who are Wonderland Make-Up?

Wonderland Make-Up are a UK based and cruelty-free cosmetic brand. They pride themselves on creating high quality, premium products at a low price as they believe that you shouldn’t have to spend huge amounts to look and feel fabulous.

Studio Finish Primer – £15.00

I’m a real sucker when it comes to primer because despite what some people say, it makes a massive difference to the way that make-up looks and lasts on the skin. A lot of people also don’t realise that primers also help to protect the skin! They act as a barrier between your skincare and foundation which helps your skincare to perform better and deliver everything it promises to.

The Studio Finish primer is definitely my favourite product that they sent over and I’ve been using it non-stop since it arrived in the post.

With a super smooth and silky texture, this lightweight, oil-free priming gel leaves skin looking airbrushed and flawless whilst helping make-up to last all day. Unlike most silica-based primers, this one doesn’t dry the skin out and actually helps my normally dehydrated skin feel nourished and soft whilst refining any large pores too. It’s an absolute God send!

The packaging is simple and small which makes it easy to travel with too. Highly recommend this product if you’re on the hunt for a new primer!

Lash Lengthening Mascara With Fibres – £11.50

2018 seems to be the year where I’m trying out new fibre mascaras as recently I’ve tested out quite a few different ones so I was really interested to see how this one would compare.

To be honest, up until recently I’ve not been a fan of fibre mascaras as they’ve always been a bit of a terrifying concept to me and I was originally only going to review the wand, packaging and look of this mascara. However, I thought I’d finally bite the bullet as I’ve been seeing so many people on Instagram raving about this one in particular and gave it a go on my own lashes to see if it was worth the hype.

I’m quite lucky in the sense that my lashes are naturally pretty long and thick naturally. However, compared to how this mascara made my lashes look when I tried it, without it they look pretty pathetic.

This mascara added tonnes of volume and a heap of length whilst making my lashes jet black and fluffier than ever. The formula was easy to apply and build up, I didn’t experience any smudging underneath the eye and it didn’t flake all over my face either which was something that I was wary of. Overall, I’m pretty damn impressed!

The wand is plastic but still super gentle and makes mascara application easier than ever. One side of the wand has longer bristles for upper lashes and the other side has bristles that are shorter in length and can be used as a comb for the bottom lashes which helps to avoid any clumping.

Wonderdust Loose Pigment – £6.50

Surprisingly, for somebody who’s a massive palette collector, I actually have a lot of loose pigments within my collection that I didn’t properly realise I had until I received this in the post and went through all of my others.

I find pigments really easy to use and so versatile too! I use mine as eyeshadow and also liner (both wet and dry) and the matte black shade that they sent over is perfect for both. Not only does it create the most intense and sharp winged liner but it’s also ideal for a bold smoky eye when it’s used all over the lid.

The packaging is compact, easy to open and easy to store within your make-up collection too.

I can’t wait to get more shades of these pigments (I’m eyeing up the shades Hazmatt, Burst and Ivy!) and build my collection of them.

Overall, I’m really impressed with Wonderland Make-Up! Their products are extremely high quality for the low price point and the brand as a whole seem fab too.

Thank you so much to the team at Wonderland Make-Up for sending over these products to try and also for sending out a little 15% off discount code for all of you guys too! If you’d like to treat yourself to a few bits feel free to use the code Bloglife15 (it’s not an affiliate code, just a bit of discount for you guys but I won’t be earning money from it – just so you know) but I highly recommend all of the products in todays post which you can find linked into the titles.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you’ve enjoyed the post!

How Feather & Down Pillow Spray Has Changed My Sleep Game

Evening folks! Hope you’re well.

So, as you may know if you follow my Instagram or my Twitter, I’ve really been struggling to sleep over the past few months. I’ve been hella stressed to say the least and when I’ve got a lot on my mind, there’s no way I can doze off without a struggle and I haven’t been managing to fall off to sleep until gone 2am most mornings. As you can imagine, this is an absolute nightmare when you have to be up for work the next morning and also work in a customer facing role where you’re not really allowed to look sleepy. For these reasons, I knew that I needed to do something pronto to help my sleep routine and get things back in gear.

I started off by searching on Google what may help and to be completely honest, thought that most of it was just a load of shit. I tried most of them and I was right – they did bugger all and if anything, stressed me out even more because they weren’t working and I was led in bed trying to force my active mind to sleep when it just possibly couldn’t.

Just when I was about to give up and book a doctors appointment because it was getting out of control and I was on my 5th day of a horrendous migraine, I stumbled across the Feather & Down Pillow Spray. I’d seen this range before when I worked in Boots previously and it had always caught my eye but never been something I’d needed so to be honest, I’d completely forgotten about it.

For £7, I thought why the hell not. I was willing to try absolutely anything in the hopes of achieving a decent nights sleep and if it didn’t work, well at least my pillow would smell nice nonetheless.

The real questions is – Did it actually work?


No joke.

I tested the spray for the first time when I wasn’t working the next day as I didn’t want it to be too strong and make me super sleepy and drowsy in work. The fear of drowsiness was completely unnecessary and instead I should have worried about sleeping through my alarm. I slept 10 hours straight with no waking up in between, no restlessness and no sleepiness the following day. I have no idea how and no idea why this had such an incredible effect on me but I couldn’t believe it.

The pillow spray smells absolutely beautiful (Camomile and Lavender) and sends me off into a peaceful sleep so quickly. It’s the cosiest and most comforting smell in the world for me now and I can’t wait to use it each night.

The only time I find that I can’t use this spray is if I’m suffering with a migraine and sickness really badly as when that happens, I’m extremely sensitive to smells and lavender is a trigger for me and always has been. However, if I’m migraine free and use this, it won’t cause one. I just avoid using it if I’m trying to sleep when I already have one.

The only tip I have is to use this spray at least 40cm away from your pillow as if you spritz it too close, you get a soggy pillow and that’s not the most comfortable thing to sleep on!

If you’re interested, you can find the Feather & Down Pillow Spray here. I’d definitely recommend it if like me, you have trouble sleeping.

Have you tried any sleep sprays or have any suggestions to support a peaceful nights sleep? Let me know in the comments section below as I’d love to hear what works for everybody else.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you’ve enjoyed this little review.

Until next time,

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Palette – Full Review & Swatches

Happy Friday! I hope everybody has had a lovely week and you’re all geared up for a hopefully fab weekend.

That’s right, another eyeshadow palette in my ever-growing collection but as soon as I saw this Morphe X Jaclyn Hill collaboration, I just knew that I needed it. It wasn’t just a want, it was a genuine need. I don’t have any palettes with as much of a range as this one so I was adamant on getting it.

The first time it launched on Beauty Bay, I missed it and I was absolutely gutted. If you were amongst that launch chaos and got through the other side then I hold my hands up to you because that strength and bravery deserves a bloody medal. The website kept crashing, the wait queue was hours long (literally HOURS) and then it sold out quicker than ever. To say I was gutted is an understatement. However, as soon as I found out that  another batch would be available a few weeks later, I was prepared and ready with my phone and bank card in hand. This time it was completely painless and I ordered within minutes. A few days later this beauty arrived at my door and I was like a kid at Christmas.

This palette is a mixture of creamy mattes and metallic foils whilst it also delivers beautiful every day, natural shades and packs a punch with bright bolds too. Without a doubt, this palette is the most versatile amongst my crazy collection and one that I have been reaching for constantly since it arrived.


After seeing so many reviews and YouTube videos about this gem, I knew that the quality was good but I underestimated it a little and was completely blown away by just how amazing it actually is. The mattes blend beautifully without going patchy or looking uneven on the eye and the metallics are so buttery and smooth that they glide onto the eye effortlessly.


There are only two small things about this palette that frustrate me a little that I believe could have made the palette just that touch better. For one, the palette is white. As pretty and as elegant as it is, it becomes filthy ridiculously quickly and is very difficult to clean due to being made of cardboard. The normal Morphe packaging would have been much more practical. Secondly, it’s lacking a mirror big time! I know Morphe palettes don’t normally have them but I feel that it would make this one so much better as I constantly pick it up looking for one. However, I know Morphe are an affordable brand and therefore keep costs down as much as they can so a mirror might not have been possible.

Overall, despite the packaging and lack of mirror, this palette is an absolute beauty. I’m over the moon that I managed to get it within my collection and will continue to use it non-stop.

Thank you so much for reading and until next time,

New In The Beauty Collection – JANUARY

Welcome back guys! Hope you’re all well and beating the January blues as much as you possibly can.

I thought with the new year it would be a good idea to start a new series here on my blog and tell you guys all about what new products I’ve picked up each month. I hope it goes down well and if you enjoy it make sure to let me know so that I can continue creating this type of post for you to read.

Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask 

I’ve always been a big fan of Nip + Fab skincare (and recently their beauty range too) and when I saw this mask whilst browsing for some new skincare items, I couldn’t resist. Surely there’s nothing better than a skincare item that terrifies you a little bit, right? So here I am now, writing this post whilst trying out my new face mask thats infused with bee venom.

Not gonna lie, it does feel pretty tingly and slightly on the verge of painful but let’s run with it and see what happens. I’ll keep you updated and we’ll see if this one makes it into my January favourites! You can find this mask here.


The Body Shop Metallic Lip Liquids

I’ve always been unsure of metallic liquid lipsticks as I already have a few and personally don’t like them on myself. However, I saw these gems in my local Body Shop for only £4 each so I couldn’t resist them as they were an absolute steal. Turns out, I bloody love them! Especially the shade ‘Pink Nickel.’


Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Rose & Lavender Limited Edition

I’ve used the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser for I don’t know how long and always end up getting my hands on the limited edition scents. My favourite for a long time was the Orange scented one but this one has surprisingly crept into the top spot. Despite it being rose scented (something I normally hate!) I absolutely love this product and it’s unique smell.

If you’re a fan of the traditional hot cloth cleanser from Liz Earle (or even if you’ve never tried it actually!) definitely give this one a go as it’s lovely. You can find this cleanser here if you’re interested.


Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

The cold weather has been absolutely destroying my skin recently and it’s even more thirsty than normal so I decided to pick up the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask after hearing so many positive reviews about it. I personally love a face mask that can be left on overnight as it’s easy, hassle free and you know it’s working wonders whilst you’re catching your beauty sleep. I can’t wait to see what results I get from this product. You can find this mask here. 


Smashbox Be Legendary Triple Toned Lipstick – Red Ombre 

As much as I love an ombre lip, they’re one hell of a faff to get right when you’re playing around with multiple colours, blending here, there and everywhere and adding just the right amount of light to dark for that perfect fade. However, a lipstick that does all of this stressful business for you is just magical and I knew I needed to get one.

Of course, I love a bold look so it was none other than the red ombre that has joined my collection. I’ll be sharing looks on Instagram using this lipstick very soon I’m sure. Find this lipstick along with other shades here.


That’s all that has joined my little beauty collection this month but I’m really looking forward to either trying them for the first time or getting to experimenting with them even more so than I have already.

Have you picked up any new products recently? Let me know in the comments below as it may inspire my purchases for February!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and please let know in the comments section below any questions as always.

Until next time,

Rimmel Influenster VoxBox – Review & Swatches

Hey guys! Hope everything is well with all of you and that you’re having a lovely Sunday so far.

I was lucky enough to receive a box of Rimmel products from the fabulous company Influenster who work to connect brands and influencers together by sending complimentary products over for us to try and review on our blog. I’ve received one other box in the past which was full of Max Factor goodies and you can find my full review here if you wanted to have a read. I was also invited to visit my local Marc Jacobs counter for a make-over and deluxe mascara sample (new fave mascara!) by Influenster which was absolutely lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed it so I’m super excited to be working with them again for this campaign.

Rimmel are a brand that I haven’t personally tried too much from in the past so I was looking forward to giving their new launches a go and giving my honest opinion on the products for you guys on here so I hope you enjoy this little review.

Lip Top Coats – £5.49 each 

It’s no surprise to me that Rimmel have just launched 3 shades of beautiful lip toppers as throughout the end of 2017, lip toppers definitely became a massive new thing within the beauty industry with so many brands launching them to compete against one another. I’ve personally never tried a lip topper in the past as I’m a ‘get ready and go’ kinda gal with the presumption that most lip toppers don’t really do too much and therefore aren’t worth the extra 30 seconds of my time to apply them.

These lip art beauties however, did surprise me and I’ve taken a liking to them more than I thought I would. I was kindly gifted all 3 shades – Pearlescent (a white with a pink and blue shift), Gold (clue in the name – a true to form, yellow gold) and Blush Gold (a champagne gold, super sparkly shade.) My personal favourite is Blush Gold as it has an almost rose gold finish to it and anything rose gold instantly wins my heart.

The formula is easy to apply, glides onto the lips effortlessly and gives a beautiful shine too whilst adding an extra something to any make-up look. The one slightly negative (to some people anyway) thing that I would say is that they are pretty sticky so if you’re against a sticky lip gloss these may not be for you but definitely pop to your local Rimmel stand to have a look before deciding.


Wonder’fully Real Mascara – £7.99

I’ve always wondered what Rimmel mascaras are like as I personally find that a lot of highstreet brands (such as L’Oreal, Max Factor, Maybelline etc) make fab mascaras so I was super excited to find Rimmel’s latest mascara within my VoxBox.

The Wonder’fully Real Mascara contains nylon fibres and promises length and volume with the use of their tapered and easy to control brush.

At first glance, this wand isn’t anything like I’ve used before so I was instantly pretty sceptical. It’s very clearly tapered as promised, has evenly separated plastic bristles (I prefer this to natural bristles) and distributes just the right amount of product onto the wand ready to use.

This mascara applies so effortlessly and gives impact instantly. When they said it gave ‘stunning length’ they weren’t lying – my lashes are massive! As somebody who is so unbelievably picky when it comes to mascaras, I didn’t think I’d like this and although I’m not head over heels obsessed and in love with it, it definitely does do the job as promised!

Ink Me Liners – £5.29 Each

For somebody who isn’t an eyeliner wearer, I got surprisingly excited when I saw a gold liquid liner within my box of products and instantly started swatching it on the back of my hand.

I was generously sent their new Ink Me liquid liners for the eyes and body in both the black and gold shades and not only do I love the colours (the pigmentation is fab!) but I also love the formula of them too.

The applicators are quite long but very thin so it’s super easy to get a sharp and precise line. They also have a very flexible tip due to being made of foam and this also makes for easy application.


Glitter Nail Varnish in ‘Ruby Crush’ – £3.99 

I used to paint my nails all the time but about 3 months ago I started going to a salon every 6 weeks and having shellac gel nails instead. Since then, I haven’t painted my nails once. Therefore, I had my mum test out this product for us instead.

She painted her nails using a Nails Inc polish and then applied this glitter varnish over the top. It looked absolutely stunning! Sadly she wouldn’t let me take a photo as she doesn’t like her hands (didn’t even realise this was a thing?!) but the varnish looked lovely. Super sparkly, intense after about 2-3 coats and acted as the perfect top coat with no chips for at least 7 days.


So, that sums up my review for the Rimmel VoxBox that I received from Influenster! Again, a massive thank you to Influenster for sending this over for me to try and review. Thank you also to those of you that have read this post – I hope you’ve enjoyed it!

As always, please leave any comments or questions down below and don’t forget to follow my little blog too.

January Wish List – Beauty & Haircare

Happy 2018 all!

This is my first post of the year and what better way to kick off 2018 that a cheeky little wish list? We all know I’m a shopaholic so of course there are products that I currently have my eye on and hope to add into my crazy make-up collection shortly.

Becca Backlight Filter Face Primer 

I’ve heard so many people on Instagram raving about how incredible this product is and feel like I’m seriously missing out. Any primer that promises a blurring effect whilst also adding radiance is a must-have for me and this product promises exactly that.

I’ve also not tried much from Becca before (aside from the famous Champagne Pop highlighter of course!) so it’ll be good to try some more from them this year.

You can find the Becca Backlight Primer here.


Urban Decay Heavy Metals Eyeshadow Palette

I was under the impression that I didn’t need this palette as I have so many other metallic shadows and haven’t ever been that blown away by Urban Decay eyeshadows. Oh boy how I was wrong!

After popping into my local Debenhams and swatching this palette in person, I need this in my collection as soon as possible. It’s super pigmented, super smooth and contains the most beautiful mix of shades imaginable.

You can find the Heavy Metals Palette here. 


Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo 

A few years ago I used the keratin shampoo from this brand and to be quite honest, I can’t exactly remember the reason I stopped using it because as far as I can remember, it was amazing! My hair has changed a lot since then and I’ve recently learn that Argan Oil works a dream on my hair and makes it silkier than ever so this shampoo has snuck it’s way onto my wish list.

You can find the Organix Moroccan Oil Shampoo here.


Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter – Unicorn Elixir

It seems that over the past 6 months, liquid highlighters have really become a thing. I’m a real lover of the Cover FX drops and recently became obsessed with the Barry M liquid chrome highlighters too – so much so that I have every single shade.

The Makeup Revolution liquid highlighter in ‘Unicorn Elixir’ looks absolutely stunning, is visible from space (the most important thing for any highlighter of course) and is super affordable too.

You can find the Makeup Revolution Unicorn Elixir here.


Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm 

As some people will know, I moved over about 5 months ago from Smashbox and began working as a Studio Manager for Bobbi Brown here in Bristol!

I absolutely love the role, love the brand and love the products. My bank account however, currently hates me because I’ve fallen in love with their skincare products more than I ever thought possible. In particular, the Illuminating Moisture Balm.

Not only does this product deliver the ultimate hydration but it also leaves your skin glowing to the Gods with the most beautiful radiance imaginable.

The best part is that tomorrow they’ll be launching 2 new shades so not only will there be the classic pearly radiance but also a pink and a bronze too. I can’t wait to get my hands on all 3!

You can find the Bobbi Brown Illuminating Moisture Balm here.


That’s it for my current beauty and haircare wish list. I’ll definitely keep you updated as to whether or not these products end up in my collection soon and will share reviews on here and Instagram too.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you’ve enjoyed this post.

Until next time,
