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…

ColourPop: Jenn Im’s “Jenn Ne Sais Quoi” Collection

Originally posted on Brunch & Gloss:
? So I had heard about the brand ColourPop before and I know it has quite the following online. I’m not usually one for buying cosmetics online because I like to see the quality of the product as well as the actual packaging it comes in. With that being said, so many people rave about Colourpop because of its affordable price point and its high quality. When I saw that one of my favorite Youtubers Jenn Im did a collab with ColourPop, I felt like this would be a good opportunity to give them a try. Jenn’s always been an influencer that I’ve trusted so I went in expecting really good things. So this was obviously my first time ordering from them so I have to touch base on the ordering process. I have to throw it out there that I’m extremely impatient when it comes to online ordering. Amazon Prime has spoiled me! So I was a bit put off by how long my order took to “process”.…

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…

How to Dye Hair With Henna

Originally posted on HELLO LESYA:
English | Українська Hi, girls! Today I want to share with you my experience of dyeing hair with henna. I dyed my hair with henna for the first time when I was 13. I wanted to change my look and my mother advised me the natural alternative instead of synthetic hair dyes. Since time I have been using henna very often. When I studied at university I tried to dye my hair with a no ammonia hair colorant (such as L’Oreal Casting Crème Gloss), but I didn’t like them. I have a sensitive scalp and these colorants always irritates my skin. And after a few times of usage I noticed that my hair became more fragile and lifeless. I knew I had to change my hair care routine immediately. So I’ve turned to henna again and here you see the result. My first three steps were: 1) Improving my daily diet + adding more vitamins. I started eating spirulina in spring and autumn 2) Using sulfate-free shampoos 3) Dyeing hair with…

Mini Birthday Sephora Haul

Originally posted on Written in the Cosmets:
Two days until my birthday ! February 11th and I will be 17…. ok 20…. Fine fine, stop pulling my leg. I will be 24. Scary to think of honestly. Like everyone else I was offered between Fresh items or Marc Jacobs, and since I love Marc Jacobs lipstick I picked that one! I was lucky though, ABH lipsticks have been added to Sephora Canada (FINALLY I GET TO TRY THEM YESSS) and they had a great offer of Nars lipstick and perfume samples I took advantage of. Before I give it all away here are the items I decided to pick up. **All Swatches are at the bottom of the post** Vita Liberata Tanning Mitt I grabbed this because I won a self tanner a while back but was terrified of using it without a mit. I have only used spray ones so I am excited I can finally try it out, and tell you all how it is! Sephora’s Birthday Choice- Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc…

Drugstore Brands I want to try more from!

Originally posted on LucieLeannexo:
Since starting my blog I have got much better at venturing into new brands, but I feel as though there are still many brands I want to explore more. I’ve seen a few of these posts recently so I thought I would give you my own spin on it, starting with the drugstore brands I want to try more from. Revlon -?Revlon is a brand I have always been aware of but for some reason I have barely tried any of their products, except from this gorgeous pink lipstick I received in a Glossybox. They have just released a whole range of new mascaras which I would love to try, and I would also like to try their Color Stay foundation. NYX -?When Valentina & I did our beauty swap, she kindly sent me some Nyx products. I have fallen in love with the butter gloss in Tiramisu, and I literally want to try every shade. Their HD concealer has also caught my attention and also their primers. H&M Beauty -?I…
