Beauty Bay Makeup Haul!

Hi my lovelies,

You guys know I can’t resist a sale, so I caved yet again and bought a few things I’ve had my eye on from BeautyBay.com last week. They had a bank holiday sale (£10 off a £50 spend), so I definitely took advantage of it! Here’s what I ended up with! Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see a full review of any of these products!!

Also, apologies for this post being incredibly late, I have had zero time to blog over the last week or so. Rather than post something I wasn’t happy with, I decided to put it off until I could give you guys a well written post with some good pictures that I hope you’re used to from me. I’m definitely going to try and schedule blocks of writing time in the future, so please bear with me!

So what did I buy?

The 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag!

Hi my lovelies,

So today’s post is a little different, I’ve seen this tag a few times lately, and it sounded super fun to do, so I did! Basically it’s all about the seven deadly sins, and how they apply to us beauty bloggers! I’m tagging all of you guys in this tag, so I’d love to see all of your answers to these questions too!!

Onto the Questions!

GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

Most Inexpensive – My 99p Essence Lip Liners! They’re so good and I can’t believe they’re so cheap!

Most expensive – Probably my Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Palette as far as makeup goes. Though I have a Clinique serum that is worth more than this (I got it free!) and my GHD’s which were many many pounds but well worth the investment!

The Lust List – August 2016!

Hi my lovelies,

I’m back with another list of my most lustworthy items this month, and there are definitely some amazing items in store for August that I’ve had my eye on! These are beauty products, makeup, fashion and just about anything that I’ve been lusting over for the last month!

So what have I been lusting after this month?

  • Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

If you haven’t heard about this concealer in the last few weeks – what rock have you been living under? I have heard blogger after blogger rave about this concealer this month, it supposedly has smooth, high coverage without being drying or patchy. There have been mixed reviews about the blending sponge to go with this concealer, and this is only sold on QVC over here, with the sponge in question. Therefore, I may give it a go, but I’m definitely lusting over it!

Look Incredible Beauty Box – August 2016 Unboxing and Review!

Hi my lovelies,

It’s time for another unboxing of my Look Incredible beauty box! August’s box is filled with amazing products that I’m really looking forward to using, and I find it amazing that Look Incredible manage to cram so much value into this little box every month.

20160816_112653

They’ve stepped up their aesthetic game this month, and updated the look of their box a little, and it’s a really nice change. Instead of the cheaper looking sticker on the box, they’ve now added some luxe gold font and my box came with an adorable little ribbon and a bow this month, which was a super cute added touch! It’s beginning to look like the great beauty box that it is! It’s also a lot better product wise (in my opinion) than July’s offering!

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, Stila 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!

Birchbox August 2016 -“Dive In!” Unboxing and First Impressions!

Hi my lovelies,

We all know I was super happy with last month’s Birchbox, which was great timing as I was debating whether to cancel my subscription. This month’s box is not as great as that one, but there’s a couple of products in here that I’m excited to receive – let’s get into it and look at what I got for August, shall we?

13680688_1062534800463018_268271223828592800_n

August’s theme is Dive In! and features summer (and beach) ready products and comes in a super convenient scuba Birchbag (yes, bag!) this month. The bag is waterproof and a lovely little size for all those beauty essentials (lipstick, powder, hand cream) that I keep in my handbag on a daily basis! The downside – it doesn’t seem like great quality which is disappointing, and the colour is just not my cup of tea at all. It’s sort of that “used to be white but I’ve put it through the wash a few too many times” grey colour that looks weirdly dirty, with a bright highlighter yellow zipper (I’m not mad at that – why couldn’t the whole bag have just been yellow?)

July Beauty Faves! (And a couple of fails)

Hi my lovelies,

Another month has flown by super quickly, and so I have some more products to share with you that I have been loving over July, and a few that I haven’t! we’ll start off with the positives first, and there are some skincare, some makeup, and as always some random items! Apologies for this post being slightly late, but I’ve been swamped with work this week, and the one day I wasn’t I was out literally the whole day. It’s a long one though, so (hopefully) worth the wait!

In July I also hit a milestone for this blog – 100 posts! So I just want to thank all of you guys for sticking with me so far and I can’t wait to see what the future brings!

20160731_143129-tile.jpg

Let’s get started, shall we?

20160731_143129

  • Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Mask
  • Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask 

It’s safe to say that July has been the month of face masks for me, and three of them have cropped up in my faves this month! With the weather being so dry lately, my combination skin has been hating me and so I used every moisturising product in my beauty collection this month to try and combat the dry patches while still not getting too oily and it is a fragile balance, my friends. So I’ve really been loving these two to give my skin the much needed hydration!

Birchbox August 2016 – Sneak Peek!

Hi my lovelies,

It’s the beginning of yet another month (August already!) and we all know what that means: another sneaky peek into this month’s Birchbox! I was super impressed with last month’s box so August’s offering is going to have to be amazing to beat July’s box!

13680688_1062534800463018_268271223828592800_n

This month’s theme is Dive In! and comes in a special Birch(bag) for August. This bag is waterproof and has accents of bright summery shades – perfect for that day at the beach! As a matter of fact, the whole theme this month seems to be about being beach ready, with waterproof makeup and products for soft, radiant skin and hair!

For those of you who don’t know about Birchbox, it’s a beauty subscription service that sends around 5 beauty products (including makeup, skincare and haircare) to your door each month. Sometimes there is also a beauty bonus included, such as January’s #nofilter compact mirror! It costs £10 plus £2.95 postage, and in my opinion is well worth it so far as I’ve found products that I really love (Spectrum makeup brushes, anybody?)!

Birchbox also now ships to Ireland, so all you Irish lovelies can now get your hands on this little box of wonders too!
