Lash Perfect Lash Lift

Eye lash perming and extensions are not a new thing but recently these types of treatments have made an explosion and everyone is getting them done. For busy people it just makes sense, you don't have to faff around with eye lash curlers and expensive mascaras to get that long fluttery lash look.
Back in August I was invited down to the Lash Perfect Salon to get my eye lashes permed.

5 Products That Have Wowed Me This Week.

This week has been so exciting in terms of testing new products. I have a few products that I've instantly wowed me! Without further ado..

Under the Radar Brands Worth Checking Out

I have discovered so many amazing brands through blogging, some I probably would have never heard of or even thought to check out! So this post idea popped into my head for the non bloggers out there that would have never heard of these brands. I've also included a few brands that in my opinion, are underrated. So lets get into it.

Maintaining Your Summer Glow | Skincare, Makeup & Bodycare

As much as I love Autumn I'm not prepared to give up my summer glow. And I'm not just talking tan (I rarely tan anyway) but there's just something about summer that gives you a glow. Well, it does for me! I've curated some of my favourite skincare, bodycare and makeup that will leave you glowing all year found.

Non Drying Matte Lips For Autumn

Autumn is my favourite season, I love how cozy it is. But I don't love Autumn makeup. Everything turns matte, base, lips everything. Which is great but my whole body is so dry and matte products don't do so well on dry skin and lips. So today I have a little edit of my favourite matte formulas that aren't drying.

Playa | The Brand You Should Know About

Haircare is one of my biggest beauty passions, I love testing hair products and you pretty much get instant results. So when these products from Playa landed on my doorstep, needless to say I was excited.

My Capsule Skincare Products

Creating a capsule skincare routine is hard, for me anyway. I test loads of products and enjoy trying new things. But I have a routine of products I also come back to no matter what the season, always travel with and just love in general. I have dehydrated skin that is sometimes prone to breakouts and all these products meet my skincare needs perfectly and I know I can rely one them.

Setting Sprays & Face Mists Part 2 | Mid price

I'm back with the second instalment of my setting spray / face mist series. Today we're talking about mid priced sprays, basically anything between £10 - £20. Anything over £20 will be in part 3, high-end. You can read part 1, the affordable ones here. So let's get into it.

MAC Fix+ | £18

This is a cult classic when it comes to face mists. So many swear by this and for good reason. It's an incredible face mist. I definitely think this is a face mist rather than a setting spray because I don't find this pro longs my makeup wear time but it just makes my makeup look so much better. It's almost like it blends everything a little bit more. It makes powders become one with the skin, leaving the makeup on the skin flawless. The mist action on this is also really nice. It's not the finest mist I've come across but it doesn't shoot water at your face.

Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray | £22 (full size)

I brought this on a bit of a whim and I'm so glad I did. It's one of my favourite setting sprays. And this is definitely a setting spray over anything else. It does set my makeup down and leaves it with a nice illuminated finish. The mist action on this is the best out of the mists I own. It's so fine, you hardly feel it hitting the face. It's amazing, definitely one to check out.

PIXI Milky Mist | £18

Pixi have an extensive line of face mists aimed at different skin needs. The milky option is packed with hydrating ingredients to plump and add moisture to the skin. It can be used as skincare or a setting spray and a refreshing mist. It works well in all ways. But I love this as part of my skincare routine. Straight after cleansing I apply a few sprays like a toner and it makes a nice base with the skincare to go over. As a prep spray it adds that little extra moisture my dehydrated skin needs before primer. I love to keep this in my handbag as well for when my skin feels dry or my makeup starts to look caky. The mist action is also really nice. Another firm favourite.

Pixi Glow Mist | £16

Another Pixi mist I love is the Glow option. This is like a dual phase formula that contains oil so you have to shake it well before using it. Like the Milky Mist it can be used in a number of ways. I like this as a finishing mist though. It perfects everything and makes powders look super blended on the skin. It gives my base a super dewy finish which I love! In terms of extending wear time, I don't think this does a lot but as a setting spray and refreshing mist this is fab.

Pixi Fixing Mist* | £16

Lastly from the Pixi Mist line I have the Fixing Mist, which is designed to set makeup and hold it in place all day. And this really does! I think dewy foundations don't wear for that long before they start breaking down and this little gem really helps keep it on for a bit longer. My issue with this is I don't love the scent. It kind of reminds me of old ladies, but that aside this is an excellent makeup extender.

Urban Decay All Nighter* | £23 (full size)

The All Nighter is a long standing favourite, I think it is one of the first setting sprays about. This is definitely a makeup setting spray rather than a skincare product. The mist is really nice and fine and leaves my makeup looking a little more perfected. In terms of makeup wear time I don't actually think this extends it but it keeps my makeup looking fresher for longer. You know around lunch time when makeup starts to look caky or a bit oily this helps prevent that! It's also refreshing when skin needs a little pick me up. It's an oldie but a goodie.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir | £12

This seems to have eluded the photo but I wanted to mention it anyway. This Beauty Elixir is made with natural ingrediants and claims to tighten pores and refresh the skin so I think it's more of a skincare mist than a makeup one. This does feel refreshing on the skin and the mist action is good. But I don't love the scent and I find this really drying on my skin. If I do use it over makeup it instantly makes my skin feel dry and tight. I think this is probably one for those with oily skin.

As I said keep an eye out for part 3.

Have you tried any of these? Are you a setting spray junkie like me?

Until next time...

Don't forget to follow me on:


A couple of weeks ago I was invited down to London for the Sleek #MyFaceMyRule Launch party, which was so much fun. The campaign is all about tackling makeup shaming and breaking the norms & stereo types surrounding makeup. I'm sure all us at some point have experienced some kind of makeup shaming. Just see this video here.

Makeup Lately

It's time to share the makeup I've been reaching for lately. I test loads of products so when I reach for a product a lot it means I really like it. Make sure you check out my full review links for more details. So let's get into it.

Love Me Beauty | September

Love Me Beauty* is my favourite subscription that allows you to pick your products each month. I've spoken in depth about the concept loads of times, so see this post for more details. But it's my favourite subscription service and this month they have an exciting product list...

Green Skincare

Organic and natural skincare is taking the beauty world by storm at the moment. More and more natural brands are creeping onto market. I think as consumers we're beginning to look a lot deeper at what goes into our skincare, what works, and what doesn't. We're starting to become more concerned with the effects of chemicals and harmful ingredients that may be in our skincare. And I think this definitely reflects in what is sold in beauty aisles. I've been testing quite a few organic and more natural skincare products to see if the results are comparable to their not so green counter parts.

Supplements Tried & Tested

I think it's common sense that beauty products can only do so much externally and if you really want to combat a skin or hair concern the best way to do it is from the inside. And the beauty industry has cottoned on and supplements are now a big thing. When I first heard of some supplements I thought well aren't they same as vitamins? But they're not. Beauty supplements are tailored to meet your skin / hair needs. I've been testing a range of beauty supplements and I'm ready to report back.

A Beauty Wishlist With a Huge Discount

It's no secret I'm a beauty Junkie. I spend the majority of my spare (and sometimes not so spare money) on all things beauty related. And what's better than a beauty purchase at a discount. I actually buy the majority of my high end skincare when it's on offer or discounted.

Well, I've not seen too many people in the blogging community talk about them. Maybe I'm reading the wrong blogs. But anyway here are some products that give a good glow.

Note Worthy Newness from Loella

Affordable makeup brushes have come such a long way over recent years! I remember back in the day the only affordable ones available were flat foundations and scratchy blush brushes. And you wouldn't dream of washing it because all the hairs would fall out! Fast forward a few years and this is no longer the case, there are affordable brushes everywhere! It can actually make the whole process a little bit daunting! But I have an affordable brush set that is definitely worth checking out.

The Debenhams Deal That's Not To Be Missed!

*This post was Sponsored By Debenhams. However, all opinions are my own*

I've spent far too much money than I care to admit in the Debenhams Beauty Hall. They stock almost every high-end brand you could imagine. Alongside being stockist of Too Faced and Kat Von D. Did you know that throughout September you could earn yourself an extra £10 of Beauty Club Card points when you buy your favourite beauty treats?

Photo Prop Haul

I think Photography props make such a huge difference when it comes to how the photo turns out. Props just add an extra dimension and some props make products look so much better! I've also been using them to add a bit of personality and uniqueness to my photos. I'm not sure if this actually works but I feel like they're more me! Anyways recently I've brought a few props so I thought I'd share them with you guys...
