Review: Love Me Beauty Subscription!

Hi my lovelies,

So today I’m going to be sharing my newfound love (ha) for Love Me Beauty! I’ve been quietly getting this subscription since September, and I’ve had three boxes (bags?) so far.

LOVE ME BEAUTY

I have to say that I love the ‘choosing your own products’ element of this subscription, and the fact that they feature different brands every month so that we can discover new brands and products we won’t have used before, along with some already established beauty faves if we need extras. The element of surprise that comes with a subscription box is gone, but being able to choose what’s in your bag every month is a really great idea, as you know you’re going to get the products you pick out and no be disappointed in anything you receive.

This month: Full sized Ecotools brushes, brush cleansing cloths and a gorgeously scented Caudalie hand cream!

Love Me Beauty costs £10 per month with £3.95 postage on top, to a total of £13.95; but you’re definitely getting your money’s worth out of the subscription. It works on a points system, where you get 60 credits to spend on items in the edit every month, with optional add on credits available to buy if you want more products. Products normally are between 5 and 20 credits, depending on the brand, cost of the product, or whether they’re full sized or deluxe samples.

September featured Kat Von D and I’m definitely in love with the lippies!

A Rather Successful Trip to TK Maxx – Mini Haul!

Hi my lovelies,

Happy Friday! (Or is it Fri-Yay?!)

Is is just me, or has TK Maxx massively stepped up its game recently? All I used to find were damaged palettes, ten million nail polishes and the odd gem that is actually really good. They seem to have had somewhat of a beauty and makeup overhaul over the last few months, and I’m finding more and more bargains in my local store!

So here’s what I picked up from TK Maxx on my last trip. Spoiler: I saved a ton of money!

The Best Beauty Blending Sponge?? Beauty Blender VS Real Techniques VS Spectrum Collections!

Hi my lovelies,

So this is a post that that’s been in the works for a couple of weeks, and pretty requested from you guys since I first mentioned it! I’ve been testing out the Beauty Blender against the Real Techniques and the Spectrum Collections make up sponges for a good few weeks now, and I think I can talk about the pros and cons of all three now!

What I did: They say your foundation can only be as good as the tools you use to apply it, so I gave all three of these a try with two foundations – one high street (Revlon Colorstay) and one higher end (Clinique Beyond Perfecting), and I used my usual concealer and powder combos with them too!

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
