Skin Care | L'Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water


I'm not usually one for running out and buying a new product just because I've seen it advertised in a magazine, but there was just something about the new Hydra Genius Aloe Vera from L'Oreal that really caught my eye and made me run to Boots just two days later.

Friday First | Lime Crime Velvetines


For that small 13-year-old within, who stumbled across the makeup universe late one night and it was so much bigger than the tiny stands I was used to in Boots; Lime Crime was the one that caught my eye. The whole identity of the brand, the name of the shades, the whole concept of liquid lipsticks was just something I lusted over for as long as I can remember.

Beauty | Does Hype Get In the Way of Research?

So back in April, I was talking about how I was slowly falling in love with Urban Decay's highly hyped All Nighter setting spray. But did the fact that it's so highly hyped get in the way of me researching properly and stop me finding the right setting spray for me?

Friday First | Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit


For a girl who wears a liquid lipstick more than anything, the lack of neutral everyday colours in my collection is horrendous. Revolution was the first brand I really heard of that brought out their own version of the Kylie lip kits and I can remember looking at them when they first launched. I can't remember the best colour selection being available, but I've always checked them out while I've been browsing the isles in Superdrug so when I spotted Reign I grabbed it and didn't look back.

Skin Care | Mitchum Advanced Control Deodorant

This is 100% a "blogger made me buy it" post, and all of the blame goes to Erin from Make Erin Over. I don't do heat; I love the sunshine and being out in the sunshine, but I hate feeling horrible, sweaty, and just desperate for a shower. The UK is currently experiencing some crazy heat, for our standards at least, and without fail I will be at work on the hottest days, in a uniform that doesn't let me breathe, just praying that I had a miracle to keep me feeling fresh.

Friday First | Too Faced Mascara Melt Off


I love nothing more than when I make an order with a brand, only to then find out at the checkout that I'll be receiving two free gifts and I get to pick those gifts! I'm not sure what I was more excited for; ordering Glitter Bomb from Too faced, or picking my two free gifts. The first gift I had to choose was the Mascara Melt Off; I'm still currently using up my Better Than Sex mascara and although it's not waterproof, as I mentioned in my review, it's an absolute bugger to get off and I'm always left with panda eyes.

Beauty | Blendercase


Let's talk about the biggest first world problem that we face; storing and travelling with a makeup sponge. I personally use the Real Techniques Complexion Sponge, for me it works really well and I've never thought about using anything else. I personally also travel every other weekend to Leeds and back which means that my sponge really does get knocked about, damaged and dirty. I've recently been travelling with my sponge in its original packaging which is just ridiculous and I've actually forgotten it on more occasions than I care to admit.
