La Source with Crabtree & Evelyn

I’ve been trying to find the perfect hair products to bring my hair the correct amount of volume keeping it refreshed and smooth. I’ve always used products consisting of seaweed for my skin so I thought it’d be perfect to try for my hair as it works a dream on my skin. For all products from La Source you can check them out here on the Crabtree & Evelyn website!
La Source Volumising seaweed shampoo – This shampoo has such a gorgeous scent and is easily applied from my roots to my tips of hair. It’s not much of a think consistency which I love as it’s easily washes out leaving my hair to be easily conditioned.
La Source Revitalising seaweed conditioner – This conditioner is extremely light weight leaving the hair smooth and soft without weighing it down. Again it has such a subtle but beautiful fragrance.
La Source Refreshing body mist – This body mist again consists of seaweed extracts and has such a good scent to it. It lasts from the moment you spray it to the moment you get in through the door after a busy day. I’ve gotten so many compliments on wearing this and it’s such a good size just to throw in your handbag!

I got a delivery and I couldn’t have been more excited when I saw a familiar product I mean is that just me? I love trying different versions of products I already use and this was one of them. I love my Dr. Paw Paw Tinted Red Balm so when I saw I had received a variety of them my eyes lit up! I mean it doesn’t get better having a multi-purpose lip balm in your hand bag does it?

Dr. Paw Paw Limited Edition Red Sparkle  This is the newest edition and it’s a sparkly one eeeek. This functions exactly the same as the original red one it’s a balm for the lips and can also be used on the cheek but this time with that added glitter! I tried this and I do love sparkles so this is right up my street!

Dr. Paw Paw Tinted Ultimate Red Balm The red ultimate balm has gone down a rank because now I’m totally in love with the the sparkly one I mean it’s just upgraded and I’m in love! However, I cannot recommend this balm enough it’s perfectly hydrating for the lips and the tint is so subtle which is perfect for application before a lipstick!

Dr. Paw Paw Tinted Peach Pink Balm Another one I’ve totally fallen in love with is this peach one, because honestly the colour is so pretty and I think I’m going get so much use out of it this SS17 because the red doesn’t always compliment every outfit and every lip colour so this will compliment nude shades perfectly.

Dr. Paw Paw Original Clear Balm Finally last but not least is the clear balm which again is amazing for the lips and skin, it has no tint to it if your look for something a little mysterious for your lips this is for you!

img_4513img_4491img_4489 img_4494

I got some new tools to add to my collection and I couldn’t be more happy to share with you what I think and my experience with using them.  They are The Body Shop vegan make-up brushes. When I first lay on them I loved the aesthetics as they’re just so pretty.

Fan Brush – A fan brush has always been a hidden one. Once I figured out what it was for, I decided to try it and honestly it works a dream to highlight my cheeks. I love how soft and easy it is to hold. It applies perfectly as well as it being charcoal-coated it’s so pretty.

Buffing Brush – A beauty blender has been a non-stop tool in my collection but it has been replaced because I cannot get enough of this brush, it leaves my make-up looking flawless as well as super soft.

Double-Ended Eye Shadow Brush – Finally , I’ve needed a multi-purpose eye shadow brush to smoke out the bottom lash line and this couldn’t be more precise. I love it as it has 2 within 1 brush and I can do my eye make-up within one brush.

img_4111 img_4113 img_4115 img_4116 img_4120
I have honestly been loving experimenting with makeup recently and I’m loving it! I got sent a couple of bits from Sleek and I thought I’d share with you what I thought! If you would like to see a make-up look with all these items do let me know!
Sleek I Divine Eye Shadow Au Natural pallete – this is a gorgeous pallete with some beautiful colours. I’ve been looking for a pallete with all the right shades and this ticks the boxes for me. It has a lovely orange shades and some mate and glittery darker shades. These are a perfect transition for a morning to evening look and the shadows are so pigmented.
Sleek Brow Intensity– I thought this was such a good idea because I don’t own any brow products which have an highlighter intact. This is so much easier for you to get that definition for your eyebrows as well as that glow.
Sleek Lip VIP Lipstick (shade: attitude) – recently I’ve been loving a dark lip as it’s so easy to compliment outfits as well as being a makeup look together. I love Sleek lipsticks they’re not dry on the lips and are super pigmented so it’s a win win.

img_3594   img_3599 img_3589 img_3591 img_3593 img_3595 img_3597

Today I thought I’d share what I think are essential for an everyday make-up look as it’s hard to choose what to use on a daily basis so if you have your set of essentials your using your time effectively to create art and not waste it on deciding what your using.

  Nude Saffron Eye-shadow pallete – Amazon.  At first I wasn’t to keen on this pallete but once I started to use it I’ve become more fond of it. The colour are perfect for a everyday look and aren’t too bright. This can be used in many different ways so do check it out.

L’Oreal Infallible Foundation – Boots.  I don’t use any other foundation other than from time to time but I always go back to this one it works with my skin so well I can apply whatever on this as my base and it always looks flawless you cannot go wrong.

MUA highlighter – Superdrug. I kind of forgot about this but recently I have brought it back and cannot stop using it because I’d forgotten how good it was.

Daring Look Eye Marker – Kiko. This eyeliner is perfect to get the most subtle flick I mean it’s almost effortless which I know everyone looks for.

Soap and Glory gloss stick- Boots. I love a good nude lipstick for an everyday look and you can’t better than a gloss stick which makes your lips hydrated and looking their best.

Eyelash Curlers – French Connection. I love having a bit of volume in my eyelashes as mascara works so insanely good with my curlers and does the job perfectly.

Eye Base – French Connection.  Having an eye base is perfect when doing eyeshadow and I’ve recently finished this one which I’m gutted about because it was amazing.

Perversion Mascara – Urban Decay. This mascara I couldn’t hype about anymore because it is so flaming good I mean its next to amazing everyone needs this in their eye make up draw.

Lipgloss – Laura Mercier.  Finally to add that extra sparkle to your lips top it off with this lipstick and honestly you have the prefect makeup look.

Holy Grail Skincare Products!

img_3498img_3502 img_3503 img_3504 img_3505

I literally haven’t this much of a hectic couple of months in forever. I finally think I’ve settled. I’m trying to get back into a schedule for my blog posts and they’ll be back to getting uploaded on a Saturday (fingers crossed). As I’ve been seeing such a difference in my skin I thought I’d updated you with what my holy grail skincare products are.

*MTV Staying Alive Ultra Facial Cream – Kiehls. I’ve nearly hit rock bottom of this and I couldn’t be more upset because I don’t know how I ever survived without this. I mean without make-up this keeps my skin feeling hydrated as well as absorbing really easily which I think not many moisturizes do.

Lip Balm – Balmi. I’ve got so many lip balms that I’m spoilt for choice. But I do love love my balmi primarily because it’s cherry but handbag friendly and I couldn’t go a day without it.

Cream Cleanser – Bee Good. I cannot recommend this to anyone with dry skin enough. It has such a powerful change I mean my skin was feeling horrid and a week of this cleanser it was brought back to life leaving it with a fresh feeling and finish.

Garnier Micellar Water – Superdrug. Again, as this has now emptied I realised how much I need it. Correcting my eyeliner wings wouldn’t work without this it works so much better than make-up wipes as well as eye make-up at the end of the night it’s the quickest and easiest way as we all just want to crawl into bed(it’s a win win, I promise.)

Seaweed clarifying toner – The Body Shop. I rediscovered this and honestly I forget how much I love it. It’s perfect to cleanse your face after a face scrub or a cleanser.

Plush Pink Skin Brush – Magnitone.  – I rediscovered my one love again and haven’t stopped using it since and it’s my magnitone. I recommend a skin brush to anyone it’s a perfect way to cleanse your face rather than your hands I promise you, you’ll never regret it. It’s so much easier and convenient.

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag Swatches!

img_3165 img_3169 img_3170  img_3174 img_3177

The birthday blues haven’t left just yet. My auntie was visiting from London and bought my birthday present with her and as you may have guessed by the title it was the MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag Set.

This set includes:

  • Lipstick: (Shade: Magic Spell) Midtone mauve nude
  • Lipgloss: (Tuned In) Midtone Rosey nude
  • Lip Liner (Shade: In Control) Brown mauve
  • Nutcracker Make-Up Bag

As you all know nude has to be my favourite colour to wear on my lips! These are such beautiful shades as you can tell from the swatches. You could easily change from what lip liner and lipstick to mix and match the nude shade with.

The lip liner has to be my favourite as it’s just such a lovely colour and easy to apply. This lip gloss is something I cannot wait to experiment with as I’ve been so into liquid lipsticks recently so it’ll be good to have that change. Finally the lipstick has such a nice sheen too it and I do love the colour as it’s similar to the lip liner. I love the make-up bag as it’s the perfect size to slide my essentials into my hand bag or into my bag for college plus its such a pretty bag I mean it’s a win win. Thank you to my aunty who I know reads my blog I love my present!

After a long eventful week I wanted to share with you some of my beauty products which I think everyone should have, whether that’s in their handbag or on their dressing table all of the products listed I have re-purchased many times and cannot recommend them enough!

Sleek i-lust hidden gems palette – Superdrug.  I love this pallete it’s so colourful and can be used for all seasons to dress up an outfit or even dress down one. The shadows are pigmented and are so easy to blend with a transition shade.

Sleek Lip Buzz – Superdrug.  This lipstick is such a beautiful colour it compliments autumn so well. It has such a nice shimmer which has to be my favourite thing about it.

Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker – Boots. I’m not a fan of lip glosses but I do love this lip gloss the tingly feeling is my favourite it leaves your lips feeling plump and hydrated and is perfect to apply on top of a lipstick which you love.

Soap and Glory Wonderbronze – Boots.  I cannot recommend this enough as it just gives you that bronze glow you need in autumn its such a beautiful shimmer and leaves you with a flawless look.

Soap and Glory Gloss Stick – Boots.  This shade of purple is perfect to apply when wearing an all black outfit as it is capturing and brings that dark look alive.

Dr Paw Paw Tinted Lip Balm – Just my look.  My lips are the worst when it comes to winter however with this lip balm I feel no pain and my lips feeling as good as ever without a doubt.

KIKO Nail Lacquer – Kiko.  Again, I love this shade of burgundy as it is such a pretty colour for autumn and can compliment all outfits of any shade.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip (Tulle) Finally this has to be the one lipstick I recommend most as everyone compliments or either asks where it is from. I love that its matte and the finish of it isn’t at all dry! I do love Colourpop and need another shop on there website!

As I mentioned in my previous post I’ve been getting a bunch of amazing parcels; another glamorous parcel that made its way through my door was a box filled with goodies from Soap and Glory. To kick start the blogmas post I thought this would be the best way!

Soap and Glory extrava-glamza have sold out online check out your nearest Boots to get yours! They have a range of gift sets for Christmas including all their famous miniatures of their bath and body collections as well as their make-up pieces in gift sets ready for any friends or family for Christmas!

Foam and fortune.  I fell in love with this instantly! I mean it sings what’s not to love! It had most of my favourite products within the tin which is reusable which I’m going use to store all my soap and glory products ahh!

Merry Kiss Much. I love my lipsticks and gloss-ticks as you all know. Plus you can never have enough lip products and I love these colour as they’re perfect no matter what the season and are so soft on your lips.

Pink Pamper. Again the packaging is a winner I mean how cute is the little bag you could use it for pretty much anything its small and really pretty. This again contains miniatures of all the famous bath and body products!!

Khol-Eyed. On to make-up I have been loving theses eyeliners are they’re so soft and so easy to apply and don’t smudge and the three colours are all so perfect and I will use all of them rather than having colours I wouldn’t wear so this is a win win.

Perfect Ten. Finally this eyeshadow palette is so practical for any season as you can create the perfect smoky but subtle look with all these neutral but loud shades. I love the variety and it would make the perfect as would all these gift sets.
