The only blush palette you will ever need : Benefit Cheekathon

Hey Internet Friends,

I have a confession, an admittance if you will. Ive fallen in love. A special kind of love. Make up Love. I also have a secret for you my loyal readers, I have found the blush palette to end all blush palettes. I showed it you last week, in my London Haul but I tend to write blog posts for this site well in advance, I have actually had the Benefit Cheekathon for a whole month so its time for a little review. You ready?

 

DSC06595

Benefits new cheekathon palette is the dream team of blushes and bronzers combined in the most beautiful, value for money and special palette I have ever seen. And you probably like me have never heard of it before.
At the weekend I was at my local Benefit counter and the women working there hadn’t even heard of it. So I am going to tell you everything you need to know about why you should 100% buy this product.

Firstly lets start by explaining why its such good value for money.
One blush or bronzer box from Benefit is £23.50.
This palette is £44.50 and you get 5 blushes and bronzers.
Now I know what your thinking, but there not full size products?
But the amazing thing is they are!
For less than the price of two Box O Powders you can have 5?

YES! YES YOU CAN!

DSC06606

So why should you buy it?
The shades flatter pretty much any skin tone, I am deadly pale as you all know and I can easily wear every shade.
Lets have a shade breakdown shall we:
Dandelion is a sheer pink tone that makes for a pretty everyday blush, this doesnt have to much shimmer and is super wearable.
Hoola – you guys know this is my holy grail bronzer. The perfect Matte finish thats both build-able and subtle. Perfection.
Rockateur is a rose gold shimmer blush that gives the skin a real flush with insane colour payoff.
Dallas is a blush and bronzer combo that gives your face a flush of colour, this works incredibly well to give definition and warmth.
Coralista is a warm coral blush with a strong shimmer, perfect for the summertime.

DSC06621
From the wrist down – Coralita, Dallas, Rockateur, Holla and Dandelion.

The literal only downside to this palette is the fact that the packaging is absolute enormous. But its just as beautiful as it is big, with Benefit you could to expect beautiful and quality packaging and whilst I appreciate the massive mirror and the brush I will never use it doesnt feel as innovative as some of the other Benefit packaging.

But my faithful ladies and gents, its whats inside that counts!

DSC06611

The brushes I would pair with this palette is the Blush brush which is perfect for both bronzer and blush especially when trying to add definition, I use the expert face brush for popping a bit of blush on the apples of the cheeks and the powder brush for some real smooth blending.

These brushes are the perfect cheekathon palette.

I honestly give the Benefit cheekathon a solid 9/10! It only looses a point because of that annoying brush nobody uses!

Hope you guys enjoyed this post.

Spring Nude Nails

Hey Internet Friends,

I think a lot of people go through stages of searching for some kind of Holy Grail product whatever that may be and mine in the run up to spring seems to be the perfect nude nail polish. Don’t ask me why but I think this is going to be a real trend throughout spring as its sophisticated, goes with every outfit and is light enough for the spring weather.

title
I have picked out four of my favourite shades for you and will talk about them all a little bit. The perfect nude nail shade obviously differs based on your skin tone and my complexion is fair to medium so if yours is too maybe these will work for you.

All BottlesFrom Left to Right.
Essie Spin the bottle, Essie Ballet Slippers. Barry M Pink Lemonade and
Seventeen Pick Me Up.

Spin the bottleEssie – Spin The Bottle

This is probably my favourite of the lot as its the perfect balance of a peachy nude but not too pink to feel childish, the finish is everything you’d expect from essie and the coverage is beautiful.
The image shows two coats with no base coat or top coat and as you can see its clearly covered.
This product can be purchased individually or as part of the Essie Nude duo kit.

Ballet SlippersEssie – Ballet Slippers

This could be a little bit too light for some people and more of a white than a nude but if you want a perfectly pure nail colour than this could be for you. I think the coverage and delicacy of this colour is beautiful.
This can also be bought individually or as part of the Nudes Duo from Essie.

DSC05968Barry M Gelly – Pink Lemonade

Barry M is my favourite Nail Polish brand, my collection is extensive and I can promise you that this is the best nude they offer.
It is more of a pinky toned nude but the shine and coverage is insane, its so good.
It will set off any skin tone amazingly and you won’t be disappointed with the longevity.

DSC05975Seventeen – Pick Me Up

This is the lowest price nail polish I have included, retailing at just £1.99 it is absolutely incredible value for money and the colour is possibly perfect.
The only tiny bug bear of the product is the long drying time (half my life, I swear) and the coverage. This is two coats and personally I think it could be better. It wasn’t as rich in colour as the other brands.

BUT for the price its amazing and the colour is divine!

Hope you guys enjoyed this Nude Nail post,

Whats your favourite Nude polish at the moment?

Fabulous Red Glitter Nails

Hey Internet Friends,

Ive got a week off work and that means one very exciting thing! It means I can do my nails however I want, no neutral colours and trimmed short, its time to be long, glittery and fabulous!

nailstitle

This look is really easy to create if Im being honest once you do the initial false nail prep its simply a few licks of paint.
Here is everything I used to create the ultimate red glittery nail.

DSC05722

In order to prep the false nails I simply take a generic false nail brand and apply it using quick dry nail glue working from the base of the false nail and applying it to my natural nail bed.
When painting false nails your going to want to rough up the surface of the nail using a file, this just allows the polish to sit better and dry faster.

DSC05738

I then get started on the paint, I used three different nail paints for this look.
A Seventeen clear varnish for a base and top coat, a dark purple colour by Barry M and the ultimate glittery polish also by Seventeen.
DSC05731

I started with the clear base coat and then the dark purple. I wanted an intense colour underneath the red glitter so I applied two coats of the dark purple. This colour is a beautiful and rich vampy colour and would work wonderfully on its own.
DSC05753

After this had fully dried I then went over it with this amazing Seventeen Red Glittery polish. The results for this are fantastic! Such a bold effect and exactly what I wanted! I then protected the red glitter with another coat of the clear topcoat. I like to apply two coats of clear top coat to really make it shine beautifully.

B-E-A-UTIFUL!
Exactly what you need to make you feel a little more special and glamarous on your week off!

Hey Internet Friends,

New year new you?! Not for me. I like me and I like what I like so lets check out the make up, skincare and nail colours that have really stood out to me and become a firm favourite throughout the year….

New Years Eve Is Celebrated In London With A Huge Firework Display

Make Up
MAKEUP

Urban Decay Naked Smoky – I am now the proud obsessive owner of not one but two of these beauties! There so versatile, I use it every single day and its brilliant.
You can read my full review HERE

My Mascara of choice throughout this year was the Benefit They’re Real! Its a brilliant mascara that makes your lashes look so incredibly and I’ve loved it for so long, the one featured in this image was a competition win from the wonderful Shanice or damascenesnf.com, you can read my full post about the Giveaway HERE

The Foundation I have been absolutely obsessed with this year is the Mac Studio Fix Fluid, its the perfect coverage for me with a matte finish and goes light enough for my very pale skin.

Hoola by Benefit will forever be my favourite bronzer, its a matte finish and thats really hard to find. It has a great buildable coverage and is so versatile.

The Lipsticks Ive been LOVING this year are nudes! Two of my favourites are the Kate Moss for Rimmel 101 and Mac’s Please Me in a Matte Finish.
Absolutely gorgeous, you can read more about that HERE

Skincare

This was so hard for me! I love skincare, its just my thing!
Maybe I should do a skincare collection post for you guys?
Is that something you would like?

The first thing is Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish – this stuff is an absolute miracle product. I love it more than any other product I own, it cleanses your face incredibly well and you can actually FEEL the difference immediately.
If you don’t own it then change that.

Yes to Tomatoes moisturiser is perfect for my oily skin and really makes your face fully prepared for make up and all the tough things it goes through. Also, I haven’t had a single break out since I added this into my skincare routine.

Soap & Glory Heel Genius – This shouldn’t just be the Heel Genius, it should be every soap & glory product ever! I love this brand so much, I finally tried it rather late into the year and now I literally can not get enough of it!

Nail Colours
DSC05285

I love Barry M products, the colours are so vibrant and only need two coats at most. They dry evenly and quickly and I don’t see a need to ever try another Nail Paint brand.
The colours above are the ones I have used the most this year.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post,

I want to thank all of you for your constant support, the love you’ve shown me has been phenomenal and more than I ever imaged. I look forward to growing a bigger community next year and sharing more things with you.
From the bottom of my heart, Thank You! Happy New Year!

What I got for Christmas 2015

Hey Internet Friends,

Ive seen so many bloggers and youtubers doing posts like this and I absolutely love looking at them so I thought it would be nice if I did one too! As I sit and write this on Christmas Day evening I am quickly reminded of how lucky I am for the wonderful family that I have surrounding me and although this post is about material things that certainly isn’t what Christmas is about for me, the gifts are just an extra bonus. Now, lets do this!

crackerIm going to cut out most of the silly little bits for you guys and just show you the main big daddy beast presents!

Radley
radleyOk, so technically I didn’t get the bag on the left as a ‘Christmas Present’ but my glamorous gran did give it to me on Christmas Day!
The one on the right is a smaller bag than I’d normally choose with softer leather and do you know what? I absolutely love it.
I love both of them so much that I think the next time I go out I’ll really struggle which one to take with me!

Soap & Glory
s&g
How great is my fiancé?
He managed to pick me the Soap & Glory whole She-Bang and I absolutely love it! 
Clean on me Moisture Shower Gel
Sugar Crush Body Buffer
The Righteous Butter
Hand Food Hand Cream
Heel Genius Foot Cream
Thick & Fast Mascara
Peaches & Clean Cleansing Milk
The Righteous Butter Sunkissed tint lotion
Sexy Mother Pucker lip gloss
And a gorgeous Cosmetics case that I think I shall use to store the majority of my skincare as it really does need a proper home other than a box under my bed! 

Sony Alpha 5000 Lenses
lenses
How exciting! My mum & dad got me a super amazing set of lenses for my blogging camera the Sony Alpha 5000 and a really cool case to keep it all in!
They very kindly got me the E mount 3.5/30 Macro Lense
&
the E Mount 55-210mm Zoom Lense.
So not only will that allow me to create much more impressive blog photo’s but also really pursue my passion for photography!

Beauty and Skincare bits & bobs

Winter Nails

Hey Internet Friends,

Winter is such a beautiful time, from the things going on in nature to the happiness and festivity thats everywhere. So what better way to enjoy this time of year than with a little sparkle and in your Nails! This can especially help get you into the festive spirit if your workplace doesn’t allow crazy jumpers and Christmas Songs…

Nail Inspiration
inspiration
Sometimes, if I’ve got a post idea in my head but I’m not sure how to execute it or how best to make it a great post I take to pinterest, instagram and google and create these cute little folders packed full of images that inspire me about the subject. I don’t normally share them with you but this selection of images were too gorgeous NOT to share with you guys.

My Winter Nails
nailsIve gone for a light blue with heavy glitter on the tips with a lighter glitter from the cuticles.
I feel like for this time of year it will go with everything you wear it should also make you feel extra special and festive.

Products I used for this
DSC04718
Barry M is my absolute favourite Nail Paint brand as its unbelievably well formulated and holds such a reasonable cost across all its products.
The gorgeous light blue colour is from the Gelly range called Sky Blue.
The Glitter varnish is very stylishly called Diamond Glitter.
The gorgeous top coat with an added plumping effect is simply called ‘Plumpy’

If you guys recreate this look please share it with me.

Have you guys got any winter nail ideas?

How do you get inspiration for trying out new beauty type things?

November Favourites 2015

Hey Internet Friends,

Its that time again! November favourites are here and can we just have a chat about how fast this year is coming to an end? Its insane! This post is more of a October to November Favourites and this is my absolute favourite time of year. Its nice and chilly without being miserable and its nearly Christmas! So exciting! So lets get started on my favourites…

header

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
DSC03772
This lip balm is ridiculously nourishing as its packed with Vitamin E and the peppermint leaves the tingly plumping feeling all beauty addicts love!
I find it vital to have a lip balm in the winter months as my mouth gets so dry and horrid if I don’t, chapped lips look good on nobody!
The great thing about this product is its all natural and sustainable something that I feel the rest of the beauty world should be looking at doing, its incredibly important that what we use on our bodies is not just good for us and makes us feel great but is also good for the rest of the world.

What Burt’s Bees says about the product
The original. The best. And still your favorite. Our must-have balms have been playing in purses and pockets since 1991. Beeswax conditions skin, while antioxidant Vitamin E moisturizes. A final hint of Peppermint Oil provides that one-of-a-kind refreshing tingle. The result? Smooth, supple lips everyone will be buzzing about.

Burt’s Bees Purpose
Most companies look out for the bottom line. We do, too. In fact, we have a triple bottom line: people, profit, planet. You can’t have one without the other two. So when we look after our own, we mean everybody: our employees, our customers, our families, ourselves. And yes, our environment, too. Our ingredients—right down to the packaging—are simple, natural, and responsible. We practice what we preach—and we hope to set the example for others to follow.

Barry M Speed Dry Nail Paint
DSC03794
I love a berry coloured nail paint at this time of year and this speed dry makes it a super easy process. Barry M is my absolute favourite Nail Paint and I have too many colours for one human to ever need.

I currently have this shade on my toes and it makes me feel all cute and seasonal. Beautiful colour.

Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub
DSC03814
I talk about this product in great detail in an earlier post, you can read that HERE if you wish

I love scrubs all year round but find them especially essential in winter when the skin on my body gets a little drier and in need of some more love and care. This scrub has lasted me such a ridiculously long time and it smells absolutely heavenly!
I love how smooth this makes me skin and using it twice a week really makes me feel fantastic.
Honestly, I couldn’t recommend this enough!

Simple Facial Toner
DSC03831This is another product that I have talked about in greater detail on another post, you can read that HERE

Since including a toner into my skincare routine my skin is a million times better in terms of oiliness, blemishes and even make up application.
Its unbelievably what a massive difference this extra step makes, I shall now always include a toner in my routine because of this product.
I feel this is especially applicable in the colder and harsher months when your skin suffers from the extremes in weather.

Urban Decay Naked 2
DSC03779Since Smoky (read more HERE) game out I have abandoned my other Naked palettes and I do feel a little bad for that, but since I’ve dyed my hair a darker colour and wanting to dry a more copper based eyeshadow this palette has really become a favourite again.

Talking about how much I loved the Naked 2 was one of my original posts on this blog and its absolutely lovely to be enjoying it again, I can really create some fantastic wearable looks everyday that complement both the season and my new hair.
You can read my original Naked 2 post HERE

Jolie Papier Christmas Cards
DSC03745
I know its only November, before you start telling me how early and ridiculous I am, but its nice to be organised and spread the cost of Christmas so when I found this absolutely Gorgeous set of cards by Jolie Papier I was so unbelievably happy.
I love sending Christmas Cards to friends and family and when I start to receive them at my house it really makes me look forward to Christmas.

This set is truly beautiful, it comes with the single card design of cute little foxes, really thick good quality envelopes and a beautiful gold sticker to seal the envelopes really making these cards feel special.
Im not an especially religious person and a lot of my friends aren’t either so I think this design is the perfect way of sending a greeting and cute little message for the festive period.

The cards themselves contain a cute message inside that says
Sending warm wishes for a happy holiday season
And inclusive of the box is a cute little card explaining the hummingbird stickers, because that message is so sweet I am going to copy it out for you.
Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. Hummingbirds open our eyes to the wonder of the world and inspire us to open our hearts to loved ones and friends. Like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover and saver each moment as it passes, embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joys of everyday. The hummingbirds delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life sweetest creation. Jolie Papier products have set the standard for style and quality. Thank you for sharing life celebrations with Jolie Papier

So Cute.

Hope you guys enjoyed this months favourites.

Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel Review

Hey Internet Friends,

I recently saw Sam from Pixiwoo and Real Techniques post on twitter about their very own Deep Cleansing Gel and as a massive fan of both their youtube channel and brush products I was gobsmacked that I’d never heard of it! I quickly began researching the product and sent her a tweet asking where I could get it from and she replied so quickly! Honestly, its so lovely that social media gives us this platform to find out about these things direct from the source. So, lets get down to the nitty gritty shall we?!

Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel
DSC03466he Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel is made by the same people who make the majority of my brushes, so obviously I was expecting brilliant things. It makes logical sense that people who make great brushes should make great products to support them!
Before purchasing the cleaner I watched the youtube tutorial by Nic on the Real Techniques website so I had an idea what I was doing with it and read a few reviews obviously!

Where you can buy it
You can buy this at all the usual places, basically anywhere you can buy the make up brushes. I did try ordering this from boots however they were all sold out so I opted to have it shipped from the Real Techniques website. 
Amazingly this only cost me £5.92!! (but I had to pay the shipping)
Boots retail it at £7.50
Superdrug retail it at £6.99

Regardless, its pretty cheap for a good quality brush cleaner and when its specifically designed for your brushes its even more of a bargain!

What Real Techniques Say
Designed for deep cleaning, with the cleansing power of a concentrate, this formula is laboratory proven to effectively remove nearly all makeup residue. It removes what you see…and even impurities you can’t see for a new brush clean.
> dermatologist tested for gentleness
> no alcohol or phthalates
> quick, clean rinse
> tested safe for all Real Techniques brushes

How I use it
stepby
Everyone has there own way and I am in no way a professional, If you want to see how a pro does it check out the Real Techniques Website

1. I lightly rinse my brushes under warm water ensuring I am just wetting the ends of the bristles and going nowhere near the part where the glue lives (the ferrule?)
2. I then apply a tiny pea sized amount onto the very ends of the bristles and rub the brush around my hand to work the product in and let it work its cleaning magic.
3. Rinse the brush ensuring all the product is off the brush and no soapy suds remain. (Again being careful not to damage the Glue part)
4. If trying to remove stubborn make up like foundation or eyeshadow primer you may need to repeat the above steps.
5. Gently squeeze down the bristles to remove any water residue.
6. I then re shape the brush and lie the majority down flat and the super fluffy or hard to try ones (like that tricky RT sculpting brush) I let them dry facing down in a stand.

You should be washing your brushes fully about once a week, not washing your brushes can lead to rubbing bacteria all over your face. Theres zero point having amazing make up, flawless application skills and a strict skincare regime if you don’t wash your make up brushes.
Plus, they look so pretty when there clean!

What Did I think
before&after
Hallelujah! My prayers have been answered. This cleaner has made my friday night brush cleaning an absolute dream, it takes nowhere near as long and they are completely spotless. They smell super fresh and amazing, they dry quicker and I know the product Im using is specifically designed to work with my make up brushes so I don’t have to worry about damaging them.
For the price this stuff is absolutely fantastic, I can safely say I will continue using this as long as I can get my hands on it.
The texture of this is a little weird, I couldn’t really get my head about using a gel on something so delicate as a make up brush but once I saw it completely remove Mac Studio Fix foundation from my notoriously tricky to clean buffing brush I was completely and utterly sold.
My only slight tiny moan is that I find the actual bottle a little tricky, its a hard plastic and it makes it a little tricky to squeeze the product out with one hand. But if thats all I can find to moan about then I think its pretty good.
Do I wish I could buy a larger bottle a time?! Of course I do. I wish that about all products I love but Im guessing its going to last a fair while and even if it doesn’t, its that good I really don’t care.

If you haven’t tried this wonder cleaner yet, please I encourage you too. 
Verdict – 9/10

Hope you found this post useful guys!

Have you guys tried this cleaner yet?!

National Pet Show 2015

Hey Internet Friends,

Bit of a different post then usual today but I had a fantastic day last week at the National Pet show in Birmingham and really wanted to share with you all the photos I took and a little bit about the people I met.

DSC03373
Before getting to the show I was super excited for all the cute animals and to see the legendary Noel Fitzpatrick do a talk about One Medicine (more on that later).
It was all a bit overwhelming and I met some lovely people and beautiful animals.

For those of you that don’t know about Noel Fitzpatrick and the amazing work he does for the veterinary profession you can find his website HERE

Noel is working towards an amazing future where Human and Animal medicine work as one, allowing doctors and vets to bridge the gap and learn from each other so both the animals and people can benefit. Its an amazing charity that really can make a massive impact to our future. If you would like to find out more about the charity you can HERE. I’m sure you’ll support it as much as I do.
Why shouldn’t we have access to the same prosthetics and revolutionary medicine available to animals already?
Why should animals be used to test medicine for humans and not benefit from the results?!
Its just common sense.

It filled my heart with so much joy and happiness, everyone was so lovely and sometimes you need a day like this to get things into perspective and realise whats truly important in life and what really makes you happy.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and don’t mind that its a little different then usual.

Sometimes you just have to do things that make you happy, you know?

Do you guys have any pets?!
