My Most Loved Makeup

In honour of Valentines Day last year I did a similar post so I thought I'd do the same thing this year. So here is my most loved makeup.

Makeup Lately

I feel like in January I went a bit crazy buying makeup and I've been slowing testing everything. Some products have quickly made their way into my everyday makeup routine. So here they are.

A Game Changer From NYX

I've lost count of the amount of times I've brought a foundation Online and the shade hasn't been right. Which can be expensive and annoying! Not only that, the lack of shades in the drugstore make it difficult for most people to find their right shade. So when I saw these Pro Foundation Mixer shade adjuster drops from NYX on a late night Cult Beauty browse I chucked them straight into my basket!

Beauty Products to make an impact this Valentines Day (no matter what you are doing)

Love or hate Valentines Day I think most people will be doing something. Whether it be with a loved one or just friends. I've put together a little edit of killer beauty products to leave you feeling amazing no matter what you are doing.

Benefit BadGal Bang - Worth the Hype?

This mascara has definitely been hyped up! I mean when we saw all the top influencers from around the world been flown to the Maldives and other stunning locations around the world for an exciting Benefit launch, everyone was left wondering what the product was going to be! Well it all transpired to be a new mascara! Benefit mascaras are loved by many and everyone was left wondering if this would live up to their already solid collection. So is it worth the hype...?

6 Products to Rescue Winter Skin

The past few weeks have been bitterly cold in the UK and this weather, paired with central heating has an awful effect on my skin. It leaves it dry and dull looking. So today I have my favourite products to inject some life back into it and give it some TLC..

High-End Discoveries

Another month, another High-End Discoveries post. Last month was exciting in terms of makeup discoveries so here I am to share them with you guys.

You REALLY Won't Believe This Sheet

OUAI is hands down one of my favourite Haircare brands. They just deliver when it comes to products to offer real solutions to haircare problems. The latest addition to their hair care line comes in the form of the fun, but functional Anti Frizz Sheets.

Verso - The Brand you Should Know About

I've been testing these Three products from Verso for quite sometime now, I've actually used up a whole bottle of the Hydration serum! So I thought it was about time I shared the results with you guys. Verso Is a luxury skincare brand, targeted at anti ageing and keeping the skin looking young. While I wouldn't say that wrinkles are something I have to worry about yet my dehydrated skin loves anything aimed at ageing skin. Plus is never to early to start, prevention is better than cure and all that! For reference I have dehydrated skin. So on to the products.

The Liquid Lipsticks Worth Investing in

When Liquid Lipsticks first became a thing I was all over them, but if I'm honest I'm a gloss girl at heart. I have super dry lips and while I found some formulas that weren't instantly drying the next day or so my lips would feel dry. But recently I've discovered some amazing formulas that don't make lips feel like they're going to fall off. They are all on the high-end of the price scale but if you suffer with dry lips like me, or just want an incredible formula, these are well worth investing in.

Best In Beauty | January

Finally January is coming to an end! It feels like it's been the longest month ever. The end of January means a round up of my favourite makeup products so let's get straight into it.

Feral Liquid Lipstick* | £14.99 | REVIEW

I can't seem to put this liquid lipstick down. The shade Skin Tight is the perfect pale nude colour. I tend to struggle with these kind of shades because they tend to be too pale for my skin tone but this is just perfect. The formula is one of the best I've tried too. It's really pigmented and applies easily. The finish is completely matte but not drying at all. The wear time is really good and this is really easy to re apply throughout the day. There's nothing not to love.

ColourPop Kathleen Light Lip Gloss | $6

Kathleen Lights recently teamed up with ColourPop again, I've loved all her collabs with them so I brought the whole collection. But in particular I've been loving this gloss in the shade Moon Child. It's described as a Pink nude with Gold glitter. But you can't see any glitter when it's on the lips. It's such a pretty shade that goes with any makeup look. The formula isn't sticky or gloopy on the lips at all.

American English Seaberry Hair Oil* | £25 | REVIEW

Having dry frizzy hair means I do love a good oil. But good oils are actually really hard to find, I don't want one that's going to weigh my hair down or leave it looking greasy. This offering from American English is one of the best I've tried. It's in a spray form which I love. It's to be sprayed on dry hair, ideally after styling. This really does tame frizz, adds shine and leaves hair so soft while feeling weightless in the hair!

YSL All Hours Foundation | £33.50 | REVIEW

I had no reason to buy this apart from the claims sounded really good. It claims to be a long wearing foundation that won't mask the skin or feel heavy. And this really lives up to the claims. It has a really good medium to full coverage in a super blend-able formula that looks so natural on the skin!

Touch In Sol Liquid Liner* | £9.50 | REVIEW

A classic wing is my everyday makeup look so when this liner landed on my door step I was super excited. And this did not disappoint! It's super Black, has a super fine tip and makes creating the perfect wing so easy! This is far better than any liners I've tried from the drugstore but the price point is similar! I really can't recommend this enough.

So that's everything I've been loving throughout January.

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?

Until next time...

5 Things You Have to Try From Touch In Sol

If you follow me over on Instagram I'm sure you would have seen me post about Touch In Sol. If you didn't know, Touch in Sol are quite a new brand to the UK market. Originally from Korea, the home of perfect skin, they offer cutting edge makeup and skincare. That is not only on trend but it also delivers! It's also the first full Korean makeup line in the UK. I've been testing their products for a few months now and I'm ready to share my thoughts. I will do a seperate post on their skincare soon.

Touch In Sol No Poreblem Primer | £15

I'm obsessed with this primer I can't put it down! It promises to be pore filling, smoothing and skin perfecting. It contains unique powders to control oils and Green Tea extract and Collagen. This is a silicone primer but it doesn't feel drying or heavy on the skin at all. It leaves my skin velvety smooth and makeup glides over the top. I do find this helps extend my makeup wear time too! I really can't recommend this enough.

Touch In Sol Toc Toc Toning Base *| £16

Another primer I love from the brand is this. It has a light weight gel consistency that's packed with hydrating ingredients and the suspended pearls burst on the skin to brighten and add radiance. This is a great base if you have dry skin, it really smooths over the areas and leaves my skin looking plump and healthy!

Touch In Sol Metallist Liquid Foil Shadows | £21.50

Every brand is bringing out these liquid foil shadows and these are the best I've tried. One end is a super metallic sheeny, cream shadow and the other end is a glitter, that compliments the cream end perfectly. Then once the liquid end has set these do not budge, they don't fade or crease! With the glitter over the top these shadows are really show stopping. The glitter is actually really comfortable on the lids. It doesn't feel chunky or scratch at all. I have all Six shades:

Margret - This one of my favourites. It's a burnt Red, Copper colour.

Elder - is a lovely Bronze colour, that is perfect for everyday where.

Tallia - is a beautiful pale Champagne colour with Gold under tones. It makes a really nice bold inner corner highlight.

Adilo - this is a stunning warm Red colour.

Lottie - is a lovely dusky Mauve colour.

If you want a shadow thats going really make an impact, look no further than these.

Touch In Sol Stretch X Mascara* | £18

I find it hard to get excited about mascaras, they either do the job or they don't. But this mascara is something special. It has a classic bristle wand, that may not look overly exciting but this transforms the lashes! It is so lengthening! The formula stays put all day too but it's still easy to remove.

Non Stop Swift Black Liner* | £9.50

A classic wing is my go to look so the perfect eyeliner is essential to me. And I'm pleased to report this has become one of my favourites! It has the perfect fine tip, that has enough movement but not too much it's hard to work with. The liner itself is super Black and long lasting. You can create a thick or thin line with this. It's just makes creating 1 a breeze. Definitely recommend checking this out!

So there's 5 things you have to try from Touch In Sol.

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?

Until next time...

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define - Worth the Hype + Shape Tape Comparison

I'm sure all of you would have seen Makeup Revolutions latest launch. And I'm not going to lie if I see another big Youtuber swatch it and say 'I'm shook' I will scream haha! But anyhow this concealer is something to get excited about. I mean it costs just £4 and comes in 18 shades! But is it worth the hype?

Primers are one of my favourite makeup products. They make a huge difference to how my base products look and last! So today I have a little edit of primers for every skin concern.

Barely There Bases

Feral Cosmetics - The Liquid Lipsticks You Need

With winter in full swing my lips are seriously suffering! So I've not been using liquid lipsticks as much. But when I received these Feral Cosmetics liquid Matte Lipsticks I just couldn't resist the shades.

Makeup Lately

I really don't think these posts need much of an introduction, it's basically the makeup I've been reaching for. So let's jump in.

A Pixi Skincare Roundup

Pixi is hands down one of my favourite skincare brands. They offer some of the most effective skincare I've ever tried and a few of the products I couldn't be without. The price point of the brand is reasonable too. They sit in the mid-priced category but some of the product easily rival products with a £50+ price tag. I have quite the collection of Pixi skincare so I thought it was about time I reviewed it all for you...

Four High-End Highlighters Worth Investing In

Note Worthy Haircare From American English

I love discovering new brands so when the haircare range American English landed on my doorstep I was instantly intrigued. I have long, thick, naturally curly hair so I'm always in the market for haircare that is going to tame my locks! And what American English has to offer is something different from most brands on the market. They are 100% vegan, not tested on animals, all their products are natural and ethically sourced.

A Guide To Budget Brush Brands

I don't actually own any high-end makeup brushes and I don't feel like I'm missing out. All my favourite brushes do the job perfectly. The world of makeup brushes can be a little over whelming especially when they're just named with letters and numbers. I've put together a little guide to some of my favourite affordable brush brands.

YSL All Hours Foundation - Worth the Hype?

I'm not actually sure if this foundation is hyped up but I've seen it on a few Youtube videos and it has some bold claims! So I gave in and brought it so here am I ready to review it for you.

Skincare for a Guaranteed Glow

Who doesn't want naturally, healthy glowing skin? With winter and over indulging through the christmas period my skin was definitely lacking in glow. So here are my picks for getting your skin glowing again.

A Few Things I'm Currently Loving

It kind of doesn't seem right to do a December Best In Beauty. Everyone is looking ahead and is excited for what January holds in store so looking back just doesn't seem right. But I still have loads of favourites I wanted to share with you guys. So here they are.

New In From Makeup Revolution

It's been a while since I did a good old Makeup Revolution haul! A couple of months ago I received one of their palettes in a gift bag after an event and I completely fell back in love with the brand. I mean who doesn't love super cheap products that perform amazingly! So I've been testing a few products and here are my thoughts.
