Last week I took a trip to visit my sister at University. We both love shopping and with Southampton just a short train journey away, neither of us could resist a spending spree. I live in a town that doesn’t have many shops. so I made the most of it! Here’s a little look at what I bought. View Full Post
I have wanted a Zoeva eyeshadow palette for quite a while, after reading about how good the quality was for the price. I also bought a couple of Zoeva lipsticks (read my review here) and was impressed with how good they were. If you read a lot of beauty blogs then you may have seen some reviews of the Cocoa Blend palette. I knew I wanted it as soon as I saw it! The best place to get hold of Zoeva products in the UK is the online store Beauty Bay, unless you want to pay for shipping from Germany. As soon as they tweeted that this was back in stock I headed over to their site to purchase it. View Full Post
I seem to be writing My Little Box reviews all the time! The month just seems to go so quickly. This month the theme was My Little Provence Box and, like last month, the box design was beautiful. I loved the blue and white pattern and they used it throughout the box. For anyone who doesn’t know Provence is a region in Southeast France (yes I googled it). The beauty products this month fit in with the theme, with some mini L’Occitane products (a company which was founded in Haute- Provence). I think May’s box is one of the better boxes I have received, but still not the best- my benchmark is February’s box.
I have never really tried any non nail related products from Barry M, so I was interested to try one of their eyeshadow palettes. I chose to try ‘Starry Eyed’ because the packaging was a really nice purple colour and the eyeshadow shades were different to colours I already own. The palette is also limited edition.
The eyeshadow shades and blush come in cardboard packaging, with a mirror on the inside and two sponge eyeshadow brushes. The shadows come in a range of shimmer and matte tones and are accompanied by a golden pinky/coral blusher. View Full Post
A few weeks ago I received my second parcel from My Little Box, ‘My Little Cosy Box’. I have now had a chance to test out most of the products so here is my review.
I’ve subscribed to a lot of beauty boxes in the past, including Birchbox, Glossybox and YouBeauty Discovery, however this is my favourite. Everything from the cute illustrations to the lifestyle products really help this box stand out from the rest. View Full Post
After hearing a lot about Makeup Revolution’s eyeshadow palettes and being impressed with other Makeup Revolution products, I decided to try out two of their ‘Redemption’ palettes, Essential Mattes and Iconic 3.
The packaging for these palettes is simple but classic and unlike some other Makeup Revolution products it feels fairly sturdy. The black design with gold writing is attractive and the plastic window allows you to easily see the colours within the palette. View Full Post
