Rediscovering Old Beauty Favourites

Originally posted on LucieLeannexo:
Sometimes I get a bit stuck in a rut when it comes to makeup. With travelling between home, and my boyfriend’s house constantly I rely heavily on whatever happens to be in my makeup bag. I thought it was about time I switched things up, so I had a root through my makeup and I’ve fallen back in love with some golden oldies! The Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder was all the rage when I first started blogging. I’ve been having trouble with my t-zone getting oily recently so this powder has done the trick for me. It’s a very light weight powder, yet it still does a great job of controlling oil. I hate that cakey powder feeling that comes with mattifying products, but the Laura Mercier powder really solves that issue for me. I went through a real phase a couple of years ago of investing in lots of Makeup Geek shadows, but then they sadly sank to the bottom of my makeup pile. Considering each pan costs £5, they are…

Faith in Nature review

Originally posted on Charm of Love:
Evening everyone, Well I did not miss waking up at 6am to go to work. It doesn’t help that the sun doesn’t rise until after 7 and I feel like the walking dead as I finish this post this morning. I know I’ve had some time off but I am still annoyed that I’m working on the weekend, oh well. Today I am reviewing a few Faith in Nature products. Faith in Nature are certified, both by the Vegan Society and by Cruelty Free International. They make natural, affordable products and believe in benefiting the planet. Not all their products are vegan but the majority are, they don’t use GMOs, synthetic colours or fragrances. Their products are free from SLES, SLS, parabens and artificial preservatives. I received all the following products as a gift and it’s taken me ages to get round to using everything I received for my birthday. The first thing I used was the lavender and geranium shower gel and foam bath. I love these scents…

Spectrum Brushes Review

Originally posted on ISOBEL FRANCES:
Recently I was given the opportunity to try out ‘Spectrum’ brushes and of course I jumped at the chance because WHY WOULDN’T I WANT PINK BRUSHES IN MY LIFE!? If you haven’t seen this brand floating around Instagram then, quite frankly, you’re missing out because every time I see a pic of these adorable mermaid-inspired brushes I die a little inside. The brand are PETA registered, vegan trademarked and cruelty free (YAAS) and claim to be the leading brand in trend lead makeup brushes with professional performance. They have also been used by the stars of TOWIE, Geordie Shore, MIC and many more. I was very kindly sent the ‘8 Piece Eye Blending Set’ which retails for £29.99 and can be purchased HERE. I unboxed the brushes on camera in an unboxing video over on my YouTube channel so if you wanna see my overly-excited initial reaction to the cuteness click HERE. I definitely said ‘cool’ WAY too many times in that video so here I plan to share my thoughts in a little…

LUSH Haul.

Originally posted on driftinglexi:
If you were watching my Snapchat (driftinglexi) earlier this afternoon you will have seen that I took a trip to LUSH after work and picked up a load of products. This is definitely the most I have personally bought in one shopping trip to LUSH, but it is by no means that large compared to other LUSH hauls I have seen. First off I will say that there won’t be many photos of the actually products within the packaging in this post. I like to keep my bath bombs and bubble bars in their bags until I get around to using them as it just keeps them together and protected, plus I like them having the labels on them, despite the fact that I do know what they all are, haha. Secondly, all of these products are new to me. There isn’t a single product in this haul that I have used before, therefore making it even more exciting. While there will not be loads of images in this post, if you add me on Snapchat…

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers

Originally posted on The Flower That Blooms:
Ever since we started our blog we’ve been wanting to try new products. Prior to blogging we rarely wore lip products, now over a year into having our blog , we have a new found love for liquid lipsticks in particular! If you read our blog regularly you’ll know that we love the brand MUA and have done a few haul posts in the past. We saw that they had a range of matte liquid lipsticks and as we’re huge fans of a matte lip, we thought we’d try them out! From Left to Right : Passion/Dash/Harmony There are a range of colours in the Velvet Lip Lacquer collection starting from nudes and bold pinks all the way down to the deepest purple and even black! The velvet lip lacquers are a highly pigmented matte gloss, which dry really quickly once applied. As we were unsure if we were going to like the product we only picked up 3 at first. However, since these photos were taken we’ve added a few more…

Sephora Haul

Originally posted on LucieLeannexo:
Well, you all knew this was coming – how could I go to a European city without taking a trip to Sephora?! I was actually quite surprised at myself as I was much more restrained in Sephora than I expected. I think this was partially due to the fact that European Sephora’s don’t have too many brands that we can’t get in the UK (unlike Sephora in the US). I instantly knew I had to get something from Kat Von D, and I had my heart set on trying some goodies from Sephora’s own brand. I have always wanted to try some of Sephora’s face masks, virtually every Sephora haul I have seen has included some of them. I was intrigued by their Avocado range, which is said to be nourishing and repairing. So I decided to try the Sephora Avocado Eye Mask & Sephora Avocado Sleeping Mask, both of which I am very excited to try and may even review if that’s something you would be interested in? Sephora are known for…
