ELF are one of my favourite budget beauty brands so I was gutted when they shut down their UK website a couple of years ago, but they now have a new UK website so we can get our hands on their products once again without paying extortionate prices on eBay. I’ve been dying to try the ELF Studio Powder Blush Palette for such a long time as I’ve read many rave reviews, and I really liked the ELF Illuminating Palette. The ELF Studio Powder Blush Palette is available in two shades; Light and Dark and they’re only…

As a blogger I feel very fortunate that I receive some amazing gifts from very generous brands and Pixi really did blow my mind when they sent me their Pixi Pretties box set containing all of the products from their collaboration with four leading beauty influencers (see it here). I had no idea that Pixi had collaborated with multiple bloggers/YouTubers until I got the set but I really love the concept behind the collaboration where they were able to create their ‘dream products’ with Petra’s guidance to represent their individual points of view but parallel Pixi’s…

It’s time for the Glossybox March 2017 box and this month’s box is based on the “P is for Prep” theme with products which will help preen and perfect your skin.

Back to this month’s box, I utilised the new multiple…

My all time favourite mascara is the YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils and has been for at least ten years, and I always have a tube within my stash at all times as I love how dramatic and…

Clarins are one of my favourite makeup and skincare brands so their new collections always pique my interest, especially when they’re as adorable as their brand new Mother’s Day Collection which launches on the 12th of March. The new Clarins Tender Moments Collection is a beautiful capsule collection with a foursome of limited makeup products which will make for gorgeous gifts for Mother’s Day or a self indulgent treat. Clarins always have exquisitely beautiful packaging for their products, but the Tender Moments Collection really is something special and will be impossible to resist for many..…

I have had terrible skin ever since I was a teenager and I naively thought I’d be able to say goodbye to my skin troubles as soon as I reached my twenties but even though I’m turning 30 this year (*gulp*), my skin continues to misbehave and cause me misery. I would have to say my skin has improved over the last twelve months as I’ve discovered my skin flares up with blemishes whenever I eat dairy products so my skin behaves a lot better whenever I eliminate dairy from my diet. I am also…
