Sanctuary Spa always do such fabulous gift sets and collections, and their newest is quite possibly my favourite so far. The Sanctuary Spa Ultimate Summer Escape Gift Set consists of a lovely, grey and white striped beach bag with orange handles and a bow, and it even has a zip to keep all of your holiday essentials safely zipped up inside. Not only do you get the beach bag, you also get an array of beauty treats to get your skin looking and feeling its best in time for Summer. The Sanctuary Spa Ultimate Summer Escape Gift Set is worth £45, however until the 5th of July it’s on offer for an amazing £22 while stocks last at Boots and on the… View Post

The Clinique Pop Lip Colour Lipsticks are one of my favourite lipstick formulas, so when I saw that they’d launched the Clinique Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub and Lip Balms, I knew I wanted to give them a try. The Clinique Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub and Lip Balms are £15 each and are available in a total of five shades, and I have the Red Velvet shade. The Sweet Pots are described as being a 2 in 1 pampering treat, with a sugar smoothing scrub as well as a tinted moisturising balm in one handy pot, which is shaped like a macaron with the scrub in a frosted plastic pot and a shiny plastic pot for the balm. The scrub part of the… View Post

MAC 217 Blending Brush – £20 I have heard so much hype about the MAC 217 Blending Brush but amazingly, I’ve never tried one until my lovely friend Zoë surprised me one. There’s no denying that MAC brushes are pretty pricey, but I just couldn’t justify paying £20 for one when my favourite Zoeva blending brush (221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush) is only £6.95, so I was thrilled when I was finally able to try one for myself to see what they hype was all about. MAC describe the 217 brush as being ideal for shading or blending of colour or creamy products, with fine densely packed fibres which are shaped into an oval. The brush has a black wooden handle,… View Post

When NARS launched their range of Audacious Lipsticks, I was initially overwhelmed as there are 40 shades in total but I knew I had to try the new formula as it sounded amazing. The NARS Audacious Lipsticks are described as being longlasting and saturated in colour, with one stroke full coverage wear which is smoothing and nourishing on the lips. After deliberating for a long time on which shade to purchase, I opted for the NARS Anita Audacious Lipstick £24 which NARS call a ‘rose’. The packaging of the Audacious Lipsticks is just stunning. They have a black, matte metal casing with NARS written in a slightly glossy finish, and the lid is magnetic too which just adds to the luxury. The… View Post

The Rimmel Lasting Finish foundations (both the original version and the Nude version) are two of my favourite foundations, so when I saw that Rimmel had launched a matching concealer I knew I had to have it. The Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer is available to purchase in just three shades which is crazy in my opinion, especially when there are so many shades within the foundation ranges. The lightest shade is 010 Light Porcelain which is the shade I use in Rimmel foundations so I knew it would be a good shade match for me. The Lasting Finish Concealer contains six grams of product and costs £5.49 and is packaged within a red plastic, circular pot with a screw lid. Rimmel describe… View Post

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that I featured a lot of Makeup Revolution products on my blog and I decided that this year I would try and get a better balance of brands. However I’ve been asked so many times to review their new releases so I’m going to try and keep up to date with their releases although it’s pretty hard as they release something new practically every week, which can be a little overwhelming. Recently they launched a selection of new blush palettes which I had to buy, as I feel like Makeup Revolution do blushes fantastically and I was particularly intrigued by the Makeup Revolution Blush Goddess Blush Palette as it contained a… View Post
