Makeup Revolution Haul

Tuesday, 25 November 2014

With over 80 new makeup revolution launches this month I've been lucky enough to get
a few to try out for myself. As well as this I've picked up a couple of things from Superdrug
and decided it was time for a haul!


Redemption Palette- Iconic Dreams*
This is makeup revs newest and (possibly) most neutral palette. It's got some seriously
nice dark brown shades that are going to look so perfect this winter. I've been loving using the
far left in the corners of my eyes and can't wait to experiment with the rest of the 12 shades.


Redemption Palette- Matte Brights
Another redemption palette yet nothing like the previous. Matte brights is full of  extremely dramatic 
colours. To be honest when I first got this I wasn't sure if i'd be able to pull off many of the colors
but they are actually extremely wearable. I've been using my slanted precision eyeliner brush with my
makeup revolution aqua seal to line my under eyes and lids with the pinks, yellows and oranges all week
and loving the results.


The ONE Fluid Blusher*
Another new exiting launch is the range of fluid blushers that Makeup rev have come out with.
I received the shade Pink Dew which is perhaps a little light for my skin type but definitely won't
stop me wearing it when I can. It's a lot more liquid than i'd expected which, although makes application
a little bit harder, gives a really sheer and build-able finish.


Focus & Fix eye primer
I've been desperate for a new eye primer for a while now and this one is perfection. It's a skin colored
primer so as well as setting a base for eye shadows it concealed any discoloration on the eye area. It's
also only £2.50!


Ultra all day primer & anti-shine balm*
The perfect solution for oily skinned girls. This little compact primer can be used both over and under
foundation for a flawless face. I've never seen a primer in compact form before, it's so convenient for
taking around in the day with you to insure no shininess on the go. I'm actually very dry skinned but 
kind of wish I had more oily skin problems now so that I could make better use of this!


The Viper mascara *

The viper 'Mascara with a bite' has an extremely unusual shaped brush designed to give
 volume and lift the lashes. I've been loving using this on my bottom lashes especially.

What's your favorite of the new Makeup Revolution products?


Bella & Bear new releases

Sunday, 23 November 2014


If you've been following me for a while you might remember my brand focus post on Bella & Bear
and glowing review of their 2 products. Well now i'm back with another two launches to share with 
you! 
Bella & Bear brush and comb set: The set is a beautifully designed set of a traditional comb and
a bristled brush. They're both patterned with Bella & bears signature design and I think it's co cute
that everything's always matching. The brush is very similar to a tangle teaser yet with a useful handle.
I've also noticed that after a week of using the only hair that's come out is shown in the photo below
yet using my tangle teaser for a week there's usually a massive (and quite disgusting) amount left on
the brush. 


I always use a comb for straightening my hair so it's great to have one that matches my brush now as
apposed to the boring black one I was using before. one side of the comb bares the Bella & Bear
slogan 'people will stare, make it worth their while' which I absolutely love!


Bella & Bare 'The pluckers' tweezers set is a travel sized tweezers set containing 3 types of
tweezer:
✓ Slant Tweezers, Versatile tweezers that can be used for precision uses such as splinter
 removal or plucking ingrown hairs and that can also be used as flat tweezers for hair removal 
and similar work
✓ Flat or Straight Tweezers, great for general hair removal on your face or around your 
bikini line.
✓ Pointed Tweezers, excellent for precision use as ingrown hair tweezers or on single hairs, 
splinters and so on.
The tweezers are in the same cool mint colour as the brush set with the same ionic floral pattern for the
travel case. After using my last Bella & Bear tweezers religiously since receiving them I've so exited to
have 3 more to choose from!

Blank X Teeth Whitening Kit Review

Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Call me superficial but there's not much I like more than a tanned bod and white teeth. I was
so happy then to get the chance to try out the entire Blank X White Shock teeth whitening range.
They're all natural products without the use of optical brighteners, abrasive, and peroxide. This
sounds great but to be honest I wasn't sure if this would mean the whitening effect would be lesser
 until I tried it out and realised it definitely wasn't! I've been using Blank X for a couple of weeks
now and have been more impressed by this than any other similar product I've tried, and I've tried
A LOT.


The range comes with 5 products and can be brought online or at Boots, Superdrug, Asda,
Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose with the prices ranging from £3.29 for the tooth paste and
the most expensive product being just £10. The BlankX tooth paste with LED accelerator 
is a blue toothpaste said to whiten the teeth from the first brush . It also comes with an led accelerator
 to enhance the effect of the tooth whitening.  I've been using this for a couple of weeks and am really
liking it as a tooth paste. It's not as minty as others which can be really over powering. The Blankx 
tooth paste is also available in a refill cube so you don't have to buy the LED each time.


The Blankx white shock formula is the intensive whitening treatment that comes with the kit 
to be used as a daily toothpaste. Once used you place the led bite that comes in the pack onto your
 teeth for at least one minute. For a better effect you can use the led bite for 10 minutes once a week. 
The led bite has a useful timer that turns itself off after the 10 minutes are up which makes this process
 so simple.


The white shock formula pen is a clever design. It's the same formula as the previous product but
in a handy pen shaped design that you can easily carry out with you and top up during the day.
 I've been using this product for 5 minutes or so them simply rinsing off.



Also in the kit is the Blankx white shock mouthwash although there's not too much I can say about
a mouth wash it's probably the best one I've tried so far and perfect for if you want to get the best
possible effect from your teeth whitening.

 After using the kit for 2 weeks and as instructed I've noticed a considerable difference in the whiteness of
my teeth. Although I never had bad teeth they are definitely looking a lot better in terms of brightness and I can't wait to continue to use the kit. I will be updating my results on my instagram.
Find more on BlankX by following their Facebook and Twitter
BlankX also have a youtube channel when they share amazing beauty tips that I think you should
all take a look at!
            

I also have a BlankX giveaway for you going live tomorrow!

Gifts ideas for all the family with Flamingo Gifts

Tuesday, 18 November 2014


3 Christmas posts in a week. Seems a lot right? Well prepare for a lot more because i'm going
all out this year. I hope you're in a reading mood because this post might be a long one. I've collaborated
with Flamingo Gifts for my first gift guide post of the year. Flamingo gifts are an online store selling, you
guessed it, gifts! They have a massive range of products that I spent literally hours browsing through last week selecting something for everyone in the family. This was made so much easier by the 'For her'
'For him' ect categories on the site. After picking my things at around 12pm I was so shocked to
receive everything parceled extra securely on my front doorstep the next morning. It turns out
that they send out all items ordered before 3pm out with 1st class delivery on the same day. It's not
often I waffle on about deliveries but I was so impressed by this! Anyway here's what I went for:

Dads: This Ted baker flask is such a perfect gift for those who are hard to buy for, because who
doesn't like hot drinks?! It's design is also absolutely stunning and is printed onto a leather sleeve. They
also sell a tablet sleeve and hip flask in the same print which i'm very tempted by.



Brothers: I find brothers extremely hard to buy for but with the massive range of gift ideas on Flamingo
Gifts I easily opted for one of the 'Creepy cups' These come in a range of spiders, shark attack and skel-
entons. From the outside it looks like an average, decent sized black mug yet at the bottom it comes
with a creepy create disguised to scare the drinker.


Mums: There was sooo many amazing things on the website to choose from it took me some serious
deciding. I eventually opted for this jewelry dish from the home ware accessories section. It's such a delicate
and pretty peice it'd be hard for anyone not to love. There's so many other dainty little pieces like this
on the site too.

 

Sisters: Sneakily (and luckily for me) I don't actually have a sister so I get to keep this amazing
Lolita wine glass for myself! I've been eyeing these up for a while as my local garden center stock a few
but not nearly as many as the massive range that flamingo gifts offer. There's bound to be something for
every girl here and the way they're wrapped and presented make them the most amazing gift. They even
do Christmas tree decoration glasses if you want to me super themeic (definitely just coined a great new
word there)


So there, everything you need to please your family this Christmas all on one site! Check out
Flamingo gifts for everything here and much more. P.s how cute is my pug wrapping paper? I'm
thinking about doing a gift wrap haul if that's something people would want to see?

RCMA foundation palette V#11, QVC rotating makeup organiser, Nikon D3200 remote, Chanel

What's on your wish list?

Replica Mac Review

Thursday, 13 November 2014


I'm not the type of person that swoons over designer labels, if a product suits me ill use it, regardless weather
it's an MUA lipstick or a Tom Ford, and i'm definitely not the type of person that buys endless amounts of 
replica products in the attempt to look fancy. When I saw these 12 replica Mac liners on ioffer for just £10
though I couldn't resit giving them ago. I new they'd never be as good as Mac quality but at the end of the
day a lip liners a lip liner and at less than £1 each that isn't bad for any brand!



To me the packaging seems pretty on point. The only slight thing is that the tip of the pencil is a slightly
different shade to that of the colour on the end of the box. As  for the product itself I was really impressed.
The liner doesn't go on quite as smoothly as any of the genuine macs I have. There's also a slight weird smell
but it's nothing too bad. In terms of lasting power I think these liners might be better than actual Mac. I
applied the 'Dervish' liner all over my lips and found it last pretty much all day.

Top: Mac  Bottom: Replica Mac

So in conclusion these are no mac but they're not far off and for less than a pound each they're definitely
worth a buy and I can't lie it does feel pretty good to have a whole storage draw full of 'Mac'.
I have a couple of replica brow pencils as well so I will do a post on them if anybody would like?
