Seriously Under Rated Products

I alway seem to talk about hyped products but today I wanted to share some products that I think deserve more hype

Insta-Famous Products - Are They Worth The Hype?

Instagram is my favourite platform, especially for all things beauty. I can spend hours watching people applying their makeup and all the gorgeous flat lays. The platform has lead to a whole breed of brands that are famous and popular because of it. And even people launching their own brands because of their huge following. There are even products developed around Instagram trends.  I have loads of products that I have purely because of Instagram. Are they gimmicky though, can they be worn in real life? And do they give the amazing results shown on peoples feeds? Let's find out!

Best In Beauty | Noverber

I can't believe we're at the end of November! This year has actually whizzed by! But the end of the month means it's time to round up the beauty products I've been loving.

ColourPop Haul & Review

It's been a while since I made a ColourPop order. To be honest the whole process of getting it in the UK really puts me off but they recently changed the ordering process to include import taxes and customs in the shipping cost which makes the whole process so much quicker. This order arrived in just 4 days!! Which I was super happy about. Anyway here's what I got...

Achieving Glass Skin - Skincare & Makeup

'Glass skin' is the look I've been trying to achieve for years! The term has recently exploded in the beauty scene though, thanks to the K-Beauty skincare gods. It's basically super fresh, dewy, almost transparent looking skin - skin that looks like shiny polished glass. I've put together a little edit of my favourite skincare and makeup that helps me look super dewy and fresh faced.

Battle Of The New Concealers - Huda, Cover FX & Jouer

There have been a bunch of new concealer launches recently. I'm on a permanent mission to find the best concealer that covers my dark circles. To date my favourite is the Tarte Shape Tape which has set the bar. I've been testing these new concealers and I'm ready report back.

5 Products That Wowed Me This Week

I feel like I'm a bit late to do a Best in Beauty for September and some of the products I wanted to talk about I haven't actually been using long enough to feature them in a monthly favourites so I just thought I'd feature them here. Without further ado here are 5 products that wowed me this week.

Skincare Changes to Make For Autumn

As the weather starts to change, so does your skins needs. Especially as the weather turns colder. I've already noticed a huge change in my skin and it's not even been that cold yet. I've been making a few changes in my skincare and I thought I'd share a few tweaks you can make to ensure your skin is looking it's best.

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill The Vault Collection

These palettes have so much drama surrounding them! I'm not going to go into to much detail, but the initial launch of these palettes was delayed when Morphe and Jaclyn noticed inconsistencies among the palettes after the PR packages were sent out to influencers. People questioned if the palettes were ever changed or if the delay was a stunt. Jaclyns original Morphe collab was so well received I knew i wanted the Vault, I never got the original because I don't like how large the palette is. But because these are smaller I couldn't resist. I actually wanted to get this review up sooner  but I wanted to have a good play with the shades and really see how the perform. And I'm ready to share my thoughts.

Pistache Skincare

Pistache skincare is such an underrated brand! Their whole line of products is formulated with Pistachio oil. Which is a powerful natural ingredient, that's rich in vitamins and minerals. All products are formulated with natural, yet effective ingredients. Including Gylcolic acid from Sugar Cane. I've been testing a few of their products..

Revolution Skincare

Revolution Beauty or Makeup Revolution recently branched out into skincare. Which excited many of us in the beauty community. Although when I heard about the latest additions I was a little apprehensive, I mean Makeup Revolution are well known for duping everything so I kinda thought they would be duping The Ordinary. Which is already a super affordable brand. But when I saw the products, the packaging and the descriptions they didn't seem that similar. I placed an order and I'm ready to share my thoughts.

Morphe is one of my favourite affordable brands. They offer affordable yet professional quality products. They're back stocked on Cult Beauty too, which is one of my favourite places to shop. I have a few of their newer products I've been testing and I'm ready to report back.

5 Concealers That Just Don't Do It For Me

Concealers are one of my everyday essentials. I have such bad dark circles that I just can't go anywhere without covering them. I've tried so many concealers in my time, from high-end to drugstore and anything in between. And most of the time I don't end up loving them. Today's post is all about those concealers.

Quick Fix Skincare

Sometimes I just want something that's instantly going to make my skin look better. And with skincare I think that's pretty hard to find because some products take months before you see results. That being said I have a like capsule of products that instantly fix a specific skin problem. So today I wanted to share them with you guys.

3 Products That Have Wowed Me This Week

This post is sposored by BeautyFresh. However all opinions are my own. 

I'm forever testing new beauty products, I'm not complaining I love it. I was recently gifted some products from Beauty Fresh, which is a new online store that specialise in Luxury beauty with discounted prices. They have a huge range of products from some amazing brands, definitely check them out.  I've been testing a few products for the site and I've been completely wowed by them. So here are my thoughts.

5 Amazing Setting Sprays

I remember a few years ago and the only setting sprays on the market in the UK were the Urban Decay ones, fast forward a few years and now nearly every brand has one. Including affordable brands. Today I wanted to share with you my current favourite 5.

Urban Decay All Nighter* | £24 (full size)

This is an oldie but a goodie! It promises to keep makeup looking fresh for up to 16 hours. Which is a pretty bold claim. I do really like this but I don't actually think it prolongs my makeup wear time. It does keep it fresher for longer - like it's been freshly applied. I do find this helps prevent my makeup from creasing and sinking into fine lines to. The mist on this is very fine and it dries pretty quickly to. I like how this doesn't alter the finish of makeup to. Overall, this is a great one.

Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist* | £16

For keeping my makeup on longer this is the mist I reach for. Although I will say this smells a little like old ladies but this disappears once it has dried. This has so many good skincare ingredients to, such as Green Tea and Niacinamide! It's super hydrating. I also find this helps my makeup mesh a bit with my skin and takes away that powdery look that some powders leave behind. I love this as a mid morning pick me up to, it's just feels so nice and refreshing on the skin.

Cover FX Dewy Setting Spray* | £23

This dewy setting spray from Cover FX literally ticks all the boxes! This is described as dewy but I don't think this alters the finish of my makeup that much, it does give it more of a luminous finish but I wouldn't say dewy. Anyway that aside this is brilliant. It really does keep my makeup longer and keeps it looking fresh while, melting everything into the skin a bit better. The mist on this is so fine, you can't really even feel this touching the skin! It stops my makeup sinking into fine lines and creasing. It's also worth noting that this is alcohol free.

Primark Illuminating Setting Spray | £4

This is the newest addition to my collection and one that's become a staple! It's an illumination one that has a super fine shimmer to it that gives the skin a veil of radiance. It doesn't look over the top or glittery though. In terms of setting makeup this really does, you can almost feel it drying everything into place. But not in a way that you've sprayed hairspray on your face or anything. This does also need a good shake before applying. The mist isn't the finest I've ever come across but for just £4 this is definitely one to check out. There's also a matte version that I'm currently testing, I'll keep you updated on it.

Milani Make it Last Setting Spray | £13

Last but not least I have my longstanding favourite from Milani. For makeup staying power this is brilliant. It really helps to lock my makeup in place and keeps it looking fresh all day! it also makes all my makeup look a little more flawless and blended. This is like MAC Fix+ in terms of finish but has the benefits of keeping my makeup in place. The mist is super fine and it doesn't drown my face. It's a brilliant setting spray that I can't recommend enough.

Have you tried any of these? What's your favourite setting spray?

Until next time...
