New Beauty Alert! Benefit Dandelion Wishes Set – First Impressions and Review!

Hi my lovelies,

So If you saw my Beauty Blender post or my Instagram, you’ll know that I picked up this little Benefit set with my Birchbox points! This is the Benefit Dandelion Wishes set, and based around Benefit’s Dandelion powder, it gives a perfect pink look for spring and summer! Brand new for spring, I’m seriously happy I spent my points on this!

benefit 1

Inside the box:

  • Dandelion Powder
  • Mini Powder Brush
  • Roller Lash Mascara
  • Dandelion Lip Gloss
  • High Beam Highlighter
  • Posie Balm Tinted Lip Balm
  • Tips and Tricks on how to use the products

benefit 2

So as you can see, this is a cute little box, perfect to give things a try if you haven’t before. I’ve tried some Benefit products in the past (I love their They’re Real! Mascara) but I’ve never tried any of these before and I’ve heard good things, so this was the perfect chance to try them out! Sets are one of the things I think Benefit do really well, and they make for great gifts!

First Up: The Dandelion Powder!

I finally got myself a Beauty Blender!

Hi my lovelies!

So this post is just a short one to say that I finally did it! I got a Beauty Blender!

After such a long time deliberating over whether to buy one or not, I was super excited when it arrived in the post and can’t wait to try it out!

I’ve been looking at this and thinking about getting it for ages, all of you guys and beauty vloggers, experts and makeup gurus have been raving about this for a while, and while it was really tempting, I didn’t want to shell out £16 for a sponge to have it not work out for me. Continue reading

Beauty Top 5: Clinique!

Hi my lovelies,

As you’re probably aware of by now, Clinique is my favourite beauty brand, in that it’s a great all-rounder that has a brilliant skincare and makeup range too! This post was something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while, and it took a big think to whittle this down to just 5 products for this list as there are so many that I love!

Anyway, in no particular order, these are my Clinique beauty top 5!

  • Clinique Long Lasting Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Plum

The Lust List: April 2016!

Hi my lovelies,

So I was going to post this earlier in the month, but I got sick and then life and exams caught up with me and I didn’t have the time! I really liked writing this post last month, and you guys seemed to like it too, so I thought I’d do it again for April!

lla

The Lust List is all the things I’ve been lusting over and wanting to try out lately, so let’s jump right into it, shall we?

You guys’s fave thing from my Lust List last month was the raw gemstone jewellery, which I still seriously want and keep looking at over and over again, so thanks for all the lovely comments!

So what have I been lusting over this month?

Big Beauty Haul! Ft Clinique, NYX, Lush, Revlon & Eyelure!

Hi my lovelies,

I know what you’re all thinking, two posts in one day, oh my gosh Jess what happened to you!

So this post is a tad late, but over the easter holidays I went on a big shopping trip to the Trafford Centre (Basically a giant mall for those of you not familiar), and I picked up loads of things and spent way too much money!

I thought I’d tell you all about the beauty goodies I spent my hard earned wages on, so here we go! Let me know if you want to see the other things I bought, including clothes and homewares/lifestyle stuff!

Clinique

I bet you’re all bored with my adventures into Clinique at this point, but I have an addiction and it’s not going away. Look at all these goodies I got, aaaaannnd I only paid for two of them! I’m part of Selfridges Clinique By Invitation scheme, which is basically a reward system for loyal customers, and I got my first reward gift! If you can get over to a Selfridges, check it out because it’s well worth it if you like Clinique!

What I purchased: Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Face Mask – If you’ve seen my Instagram you’ll have seen my masked up face with this on the other day! My skin has been a little dull and broken out lately, and I’ve been eyeing this up for a while, and finally bought it! I think i’m going to add this into my weekly routine, because my skin was great after using this! I also purchased one of Clinique’s new Pop Lip Laquers, which if you know me by now, I’ve been wanting one ever since they were announced. This is essentially a liquid lipstick with a lovely glossy finish but the pigmented colour of a lipstick! I have the colour Wink Pop which is a lovely light pink shade that’s going to be a fab colour for spring and summer as we move into lighter makeup tones!

What I got for free (yes, free!)

There were a couple to pick from, and I chose the bluey green ‘Herb Garden’ box, which I think is super super cute and matches my whole aesthetic, so it’ll be handy to keep around and put little bits and bobs in!

Review: Ciate X Olivia Palermo – Cheekbone Cheat Blush/Bronzer duo!

Hi my lovelies,

So I was in my local TK Maxx recently (again) and spied these little lovelies over in the makeup section. They had two different shades, and I picked this up in the shade Bluff Point. This is the lighter of the two shades, with a bronzer suited more to my paler skin, and a pink toned blush.

I really liked the Ciate eyeliner I picked up previously, and their nail polishes are among my favourites, so when I saw that this was on sale at TK Maxx for only £5.99 (It has a £25 RRP), I had to try it out!

On with the review!
