March Favourites

Beauty

My first favourite is the Pixi Glow Tonic* which was kindly sent to me, and is personalised! I have been using this every night since the beginning of the year and love it, I feel this has really helped my skin, preventing breakouts and even the texture. 

As for my favourite scent, I am obsessed with the new fragrance from Ariana Grande, Cloud*. I was sent this back in January and have worn it pretty much everyday, I get so many compliments about it and everyone seems shocked when I tell them what it is. 

On my eyes I have been loving the Colourpop x Zoella liquid shadow in the shade OG. It is a so so pigmented and it looks so pretty all over your lid. I have also been loving the liquid matte lipstick in the shade @me, this is a really nice pinky nude. I also really love the formula of this and wish I got it in the red. 

Face make up I have been loving is the Thin Lizzy foundation*, this is one of the best foundations I have ever used and it has so sadly ran out now, but it made my skin look great and was really long lasting. I recently ran out of my go-to primer so I decided to pick up a more affordable one from Makeup Revolution, considering it was only £6 I would say its very similar to Benefit Porefessional. 

Getting ready in the morning has been made so much nicer with my LUNA London mirror* which was kindly gifted to me, I love that it is a larger compact size, perfect for travelling and has a super zoomed mirror to get those close up images. 

Another scent I have been loving is from Superdrug, I picked this up in the January sales and I couldn’t recommend it enough. For such a cheap scent it smells amazing and it really reminds me of the Jo Malone scents.

I have also been using a face peel from Ecooking*, the first time I used it I got a little (very) worried a my whole face went bright red which looked like a sunburn, but it settled down, and I tried it again a few days later. I love using this a few times a week to help resurface my face and help with the tone of my skin.

And lastly, my go to skincare product which has made a huge impact on my skincare is the Radiance Oil from Freshly Cosmetics*. I use this everynight on my face and it has helped my skin so much, I have visibly less scars now!

Pixi Skin treats {gifted}

Beauty

Last week I received this wonderful parcel from Pixi Beauty, again! I still cannot believe I have made it onto their PR list and now receive amazing this like this so often!

Skin care is my absolute favourite thing to try out, especially masks, so the fact that this came with loads of different masks to try out is brilliant.

I have never tried any of the Pixi masks before, but it’s safe to say that on the day I received them, I did some multi masking and tested out a few.

I use their Glow Tonic every night, so I was really happy to see that they do matching sheet masks! And, also really love that I now have 30 pairs of eye masks!

The Peel & Polish will be a new staple in my skincare routine as I can see this helping my skin out, by sorting out the texture along with the Glow Mud Mask.

I cannot wait to test all of these out and start including them in my skincare routine!

Thank you so much Pixi for sending me all of this to try out!

jecca black. sculpt & soften palette

Beauty

I was very kindly sent the new Sculpt and Soften palette from Jecca. They are a brand who does not just aim makeup at females, instead they aim it for anyone which I think is a really great idea. The palette is also vegan and cruelty free.

The sculpt palette contains a cream highlighter which is the perfect shade for me, it is really creamy and light weight and will be perfect for my under eye area.

The contour shade is a lovely rich bronze shade, I use cream bronzers like this everyday anyway so this is the perfect addition to my collection.

I really like how compact the palette is as it will be ideal for travelling.

You can pick up your own palette here

New In Beauty: Bee Good Cleanser

Beauty

This past week has been such an amazing week for PR packages, I have never received so much before in just one week, so I thought I would start sharing what I have been sent. So I will start with the most recent bit of mail from Bee Good. This brand is completely new to and omg, its’s so cute! The whole concept behind the brand is amazing, they are all about supporting the countryside and they give a share of their profits to bee keeping!

I am a huge lover of cream cleansers as I love how softly they remove make up. The cleanser comes with a cloth. To remove make up it works by massaging it into dry skin and then using the damp cloth to wipe away makeup. 

The cleanser contains British honey, propolis and beeswax along with naturally active botanicals and potent plant oils. 

The cleanser is really gentle on the skin and smells really lovely!

Another amazing this about this package is that they have included a little envelope of seeds to scatter for the bees which I think is such a lovely idea!

And not to mention they sent me chocolate! But look how cute this is! It has bee’s on it, and it was especially made for Bee Good by New Forest Chocolates. 

Pixi LOVE

Beauty

You know that moment when you see everyone on Instagram receiving amazing PR packages and you just keep wishing and hoping that one day that might turn up on your doorstep… well it did! I was absolutely blown away by the generosity of Pixi Beauty, and it totally made my weekend receiving all this in one day.

Skincare is my ride or die, I live for it, and when it’s as pretty as this it’s hard not too! I received the WHOLE of the Pixi Beauty Rose range. I had only ever tried the rose toner previous to this so I was 
utterly taken back when I saw that I now owned ALL of this. Not only all of the products, but 
the beautiful travel bag it all came in! I am 100% taking this away with me on every holiday 
from now as it I love it. 
This bag contains everything, from make up wipes, toners, spritz, moisturisers and balms, it is just full of so many gems!
On the same day I also received a box of their new eye shadow palettes and three brushes! The shades are perfect and so pigmented. My favourite palette is the bottom one, containing the warmer shades. i love wearing the middle third row and the left third row down on their own, just for a pop of colour.

Thank you so much Pixi! ❤

Garnier sent me a package full of goodies…

Beauty

Last week I had a bit of a surreal moment, I received an email from a Garnier employee asking if they could have my address so they could add me to their mailing list for future launches, they also asked if there was anything I really wanted to try! As a face mask addict I ofcourse just said “I love facemasks”.

A week went by and a pretty heavy box landed on my door step, when I opened it and saw it was Garnier I actually felt like crying, it felt so amazing to have a brand that I love and use actually acknowledge me and send me a box full of their products.

As you can see from the photos above they really did treat me and I am beyond thank you for everything they have sent!

The main product that I use by Garnier is their sheet masks, the fact that I have now been sent another five to add to my collection is wonderful, I am especially looking forward to using the ‘after sun mask’ when I go on holiday as this just seems perfect for treating your skin after a week in the sun.

Apart from the sheet masks every thing else is new to me so I am really excited to try it ALL!

A big thank you once again to Garnier and I’m sure you will be seeing these in my upcoming skincare routine!

Styled with Adexe | My new piece of arm candy

Beauty

Last month the lovely Marie at Adexe Watches got in contact with me saying that they love my Instagram and would love to send me a watch to promote on there. This is my first ever watch collaboration so I was rather excited as I see lots of big bloggers promoting watches all the time.
I had the whole pick of the website, all their watches are so beautiful and if I could I would of chosen loads of them, but instead I went for a style of watch which I have been lusting after for a long time. I chose the Sistine Petite in Rose Gold, could this watch be anymore perfect and instagramable?

Before receiving this watch I was never a big watch person, but now this watch is an everyday accessory me. It’s so cute and girly but still chic at the same time making it the perfect staple for every outfit. I was originally going to go for one of the larger watches but changed my mind last minute to go for the Petite, I am so glad i made this choice as anything bigger would of looked silly on me as my arms are quite short.

The quality of the watch is amazing, I have a feeling this watch is going to last me a very long time. It is is waterproof for up to 30m so that means you could actually wear it all the time.

The watch retails for £109 and you can get your own one here.

I want to say a huge thank you to Adexe for sending me this beautiful watch, make sure to head over to my Instagram to see it featuring in many photos!

What’s in the Box: Cohorted November Box

Beauty

Hello lovelies, today is a very exciting blog post indeed, well for me it is because Cohorted asked if they could send me their November Beauty Box to review on my blog! Of course I said yes, jumping at the chance to work with an amazing company, and we all love a subscription box don’t we! So here is everything you need to know about the Cohorted Beauty Box…

Cohorted is a monthly beauty subscription box which is £35 per month (if you sign up now, you’ll receive your first one in January). The total value of my the box I received was £109 which is amazing as you can see a lot of full sized products. Compared to other subscription boxes this one looks and feels a lot more high end, the packaging is really sleek and compliments the products in the box greatly.

Plum & Ashby Honey & Jojoba Hand Cream £15

First up in the box is this beautiful hand cream, which smells as good as it looks! I don’t tend to use a lot of hand cream because I find the smells over powering and they tend to make me sneeze, but this one has a really natural subtle smell which is perfect especially if you put it on before bed.

Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Multi Correcting Cream 5ml x 2 £20

These types of mini creams are perfect for travelling, your able to still stick to your skincare routine but also able to stick to the liquid allowance on your flight. I will definitely be packing these for my trip to Paris in January!

New CID I-intense Mascara £20

Next up is a very chic mascara from the brand New CID which I have never heard of before, but looking at the price it seems to be a high end mascara. The mascara is richly pigmented and builds volume whilst separating lashes.

Too Faced Melted Liquefied Longwear Lipstick £19

Seeing this little beauty in the box made me jump for joy, I have wanted one of these lipsticks for quite a while now! This is in the shade Melted Coral, it is a really beautiful orange coral shade which will be beyond perfect for the summer months.

And finally, a brightening light reflective primer from Figs & Rouge and is the most expensive product in the box. I have only tested this primer out once, but boy did it make face glow! This will be an amazing primer for the holiday season making your foundation glow from within creating a really healthy look. It also does so many other amazing this to your skin such as, neutralise redness, minimise large pores, anti-inflammatory and colour correcting! This will definitely be a staple in my make up bag for my Christmas parties!

I want to say a huge thank you to Cohorted for sending me this box and allowing me try so many new products!

Thanks for reading, see you tomorrow for another post!

Mini Nars Haul

Beauty

   
A few weeks ago Nars contacted me on Instagram and asked for my address so they could send me something, so ofcourse I replied back. As I didn’t hear back from them I didn’t think they were actually sending something but…

This little package arrived at my door last week, I had no idea what it was or who it was from. When I realised I obviously got super excited! 

 
It is such an amazing oft from Nars, and they first lot of products I have ever received from a company for free! It came with a cute little note thanking me for being a Narsassist, which ofcourse I am as I love all their products.  

I received a lipstick from the collaboration with Steven Klein which is in the shade No Shame, as you can see from the swatch below it is an amazing bright deep pink shade which looks gorgeous. This is so my colour, I cannot wait to wear this out. Next was an eye shadow, this is the first eye show I have from Nars in the shade Mortal and it’s just so cute! It’s such small packaging but still bigger than other brands individual eye shadows. It’s definelty the perfect highlight shade for the inner corner of your eye or brow bone. And the last product is a mascara from their Audacious line in Black Moon. I love the packaging of the mascara it looks such good quality and beautiful! 


I am so happy with everything they sent me and I really need to try out more products
