Review: New Jeffree Star Liquid Lipsticks – Mannequin and Rose Matter!

Hi my lovelies,

I finally bought my very first Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks! (yay!). I’ve heard for ages that these are SO good and the formula is great, lasting power is great, they’re comfortable to wear etc, and I have been waiting for the perfect moment to finally get my hands on some. These sell out super super quickly, and there’s only one main stockist here in the UK (Go look up Cocktail Cosmetics if you want to get your hands on some when they restock), so it’s really difficult to actually get the chance to buy some before they are all gone!

When I saw the announcement from CC that they were getting these two new shades in stock , I impatiently kept the website open in my browser at work (there was a lot of refreshing involved), and bought these two gorgeous shades straight away (along with a few Morphe brushes because I couldn’t help myself).

Onto the review!

Birchbox UK June 2016 “Paradise Found” Review!

Hi my lovelies,

First and foremost, I’d like to apologise about the lateness of this post – we’re almost in June! I had hoped to get this up a while back when I first got my box, but a dilemma with a broken eyeshadow has pushed this review back until now! Everything has been sorted, and while I have few good things to say about the Birchbox customer service, It’s still an OK box for me this month.

June’s box theme is ‘Paradise Found’, and has lots of products on offer that will sort you for summer. I love how Birchbox have redesigned their boxes this month into a handy drawer, and hope they stick with this in the future as it’s now so much more convenient to store things in! The box came in two designs this month, and I love the little pineapples on mine!

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag? & Why I’ve Been Mysteriously Absent!

Hi My lovelies,

So you may have noticed it’s been over a week since my last post – not something I usually do! Did you guys miss me?

20160622_180907.jpg

Anyway, this post is so super late because I have had zero time to blog over the past week at all: I went away for the weekend on friday morning, got back late sunday night and then had a really important exam on wednesday morning. All that, coupled with the whole Brexit thing (I won’t get into that here, if you follow me on twitter I’ve voiced my opinions pretty strongly) has meant for the most busy week ever! But we’re here and I’m back with a brand new blog post.

I find it really hard to pack when I’m travelling, as I like the luxury of having loads of stuff to pick from when I’m at home, and makeup for me is especially hard to whittle down into just the essentials that I ‘need’ while I’m away. That being said, I probably did still take a lot of product with me, even though I was only away for just 3 days! I thought I’d use this post to show you what I brought with me!

The Lust List – June 2016!

Hi my lovelies,

So it’s another month and I have my list of the most lustworthy products I have has my eyes on again! It’s pretty long, so get yourselves a snack, settle in and let’s begin! I was all set to buy one of the Jeffree Star highlighters from my list last month, but they were so breakable that Cocktail Cosmetics (official UK stockist of Jeffree Star products) decided they were too fragile to ship :(. I did, however get a couple of his brand new liquid lipsticks, so look out for a post on those soon! Anyway, we have a whole new list of products to lust over, so here we go!

Review: L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation!

Hi my lovelies,

So today’s post is going to be all about the new foundation craze – cushion foundations! This trend started in Korea, and huge brands such as Lancome have released their own versions of this format of foundation, but L’Oreal is the first more affordable drugstore brand to bring out their own, and I knew I had to try it! I’ve had this one for a couple of weeks and given it a really good test, so here’s what I think!

20160525_200023

For those of you in the US, this (weirdly) has a different name over there; you’ll know this as the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation. Not sure why it’s called something different, but there we go! It’s also been out in the states for ages  – why do we always get things last?!

Look Incredible Beauty Box – June 2016: The Best Box Yet?

Hi my lovelies,

It’s Look Incredible unboxing time again, and I have to say that this one is a doozy! If you saw last month’s box review, you’ll know that I was less than impressed with some of the products, but Look Incredible have brought it back this month with some fantastic products from brands I really like!

20160608_170008

If you  don’t know about Look Incredible, it’s a monthly beauty subscription service that for £18.99 (now plus £2.50 postage), promises to deliver you five full sized beauty products every month. They’ve had the likes of Tarte, Bare Minerals, Smashbox and Nars in previous boxes, and are pretty makeup heavy instead of more skincare items, so If you want to try some new makeup without paying the full price, this one is for you!

I’m really impressed with the contents of this month’s box, so I’ll just get straight into it and show you what’s in store for June!

Want to see what was in previous boxes? Here are MayApril, and March’s  boxes!

Mini Clinique Haul and Free Summer Gift!

Hi my lovelies,

You probably all know by now that Clinique is my absolute fave beauty brand, so I thought I’d share with you all today a couple of things I bought from my local Clinique counter a couple of days ago, and talk about their free summer gift (because who doesn’t like free things!).

I nipped into town to do a little shopping and head into Debenhams for a much needed Clinique purchase as I’m almost completely out of my holy grail eye makeup remover – their Take The Day Off for Lids, Lashes and Lips! I trust this more than anything else to budge the unbudgeable waterproof mascara that comes out in summer for me!

What I bought:

Birchbox June 2016 – Sneak Peek!

Hi my lovelies,

I’m back with another sneak peek of this month’s Birchbox! In May subscribers got an email from Birchbox asking if we wanted to upgrade our boxes this month with some stylish sunglasses, so I had high hopes about this box having a super sunny summer theme, and it does!

3-Reasons

The theme this month is “Paradise Found”, and features loads of products to get your summer sorted! It also comes with two totally tropical box designs this month, with either palm trees or pineapples! Something that I like about the style of June’s box is that they’ve introduced a drawer style layout which is a really nice touch!
