2018 Beauty Favourites

I started making notes of my favourite products towards the tail end of summer. Just like my 2017 Favourites I’ve tried to keep my list to fresh discoveries for the year that I’ve not tried and spoken about a hundred times before. I don’t post favourites very often, but there were some true standouts this […]

The Big Beauty Christmas Gift Guide

I’d planned on hitting December back with a big bang after a quieter few months but the new house schedule hasn’t exactly gone to plan for the past few weekends. So I’ve been spending more time getting the home situation sorted so when it comes to Christmas we can relax and unwind. Speaking of Christmas, […]

Time for Another Colourpop Haul – October 2018

Most of the time I’m finding that Colourpop now give me launch fatigue – it takes a special release from them to stop me in my tracks and decide that it’s something I 100% need. That happened at the end of September and I’ve had to wait a few weeks for things to arrive to […]

Colourpop Mar & Sol Eyeshadow Palettes

As summer seems to have well and truly drawn to a close, with darker autumn nights drawing in and crisp leaves forming on the trees, it seemed natural to talk about the two standout items from this summer’s makeup bag for me. And whilst these have been perfect for the summer months, I can see […]

Colourpop Lux Lipsticks – Uno Mas & Foolish

Last year I became quite the Colourpop fiend, but they started “doing a MAC” and releasing more products than anyone was able to keep up with and when ever that happens I start switching off from the brand. When I saw these launch I must admit they caught my eye – I mean look at […]

Collective Beauty Haul – June 2018

Over the past month or so I’ve picked up a handful of items and I’ve been waiting for them all to slowly arrive. I was convinced I’d pick up at least one new thing whilst in London at the weekend but I didn’t actually do any shopping. I’m now on the 7th of the month […]

Ten Empties #7

Dun, dun, dun – another ten bite the dust. I think we all pretty much know the drill with these now so I’m just going to jump right into the bottles making their way to the recycling!

Products I’m Trying to Use Up Spring 2018 – Part 2

I decided to review what I’d put on this list after my huge organising session over the past few weeks as I’d put everything to where it should be, and failed to remember a lot of what was on that list. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the size of the list (which was […]

The No Filter Concealer, That Has a Huge Filter

I think for me one of the most exciting launches that Colourpop have done was their concealer – moving away form colours into base products was an exciting step forward for the brand. At the point of ordering this I knew I wanted to try this concealer, but didn’t really *need* any more concealer, but […]

ColourPop Haul – January 2018

I know what you’re thinking. “Wasn’t you meant to be on a no buy?” and yes I am. This was an order that was placed at the middle of December and thanks to Christmas it meant it was a little slow arriving. You may remember mid last year I hauled some items from Colourpop and […]

2017 Beauty Disappointments

For my disappointments they’re not necessarily products I hate, they tend to be products I’d lusted over which didn’t quite cut the mustard or ended up not being worth the hype when I got my hands on them. The good news is that there’s not as many disappointments as there were favourites. Just like my […]

2017 Beauty Favourites

I thought it would be good to pick out some products that over the year have impressed me (and tomorrow the ones which did not) over the course of the year. Bar one product over these two posts these are all makeup products – for skincare I felt like they were products that were still […]
