My New Favourite Eyebrow Pencil

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with my eyebrows. I plucked them when I was 14 until I only had maybe 8 hairs left, as per 00’s fashion. Don’t ask me why this was seen as a good idea as it made my already large forehead appear even larger! But that was the fashion and I was sick of being bullied for the way I looked so thought it was worth a go. Not my smartest moment. Nearly 10 years later I’m still trying to grow them back in and they’re having none  ...

Technic Cosmetics Brush Cleaner Review

If theres one thing I am ridiculously bad at doing, it’s cleaning my makeup brushes. I know its a must but I always end up forgetting, especially as in this heat I’ve just been applying a BB cream from Kiko with a blending sponge, rather than a full coverage foundation. So when Technic Cosmetics sent me over their new brush cleaner to try, I knew I couldn’t put off cleaning them any longer. I’m so lazy at times it unreal. Now until now I’ve just been using a Superdrug own brand spray to  ...

My New Favourite Drugstore Mascara

So I was lucky enough to receive a few products from Technic last week! This is a brand I remember using when I was first getting into makeup, back when I was 15/16 and they’re still just as good today. I took a week to fully try out the products I was sent to see what I thought and I must say, I’m impressed! I very nearly didn’t get these products at all thanks to the postman! Apparently he has difficulty judging size as he shoved the parcel through the letter box when it  ...

My Brow Journey & Benefit Ka-Brow Review

Go grab a cuppa because this is going to be a long post! It's so embarrassing to admit but it was only last year that I discovered the importance of brows. When I was growing up it was the fashion to have brows as thin as possible and if you still had your natural brow (like I did) you were bullied really badly for it. I'm sure my fellow 90's ladies know exactly what I'm talking about! In the end I caved in and got my auntie to pick them off so I just had a super thin line left and I  ...

Superdrug Haul and Review

So this is what happens when you have 45 minutes to wait until your train and need toothpaste…which I actually nearly forgot! For some reason I’ve never tried any of the Superdrug own brand products but now I’m thinking I might need to buy the whole shop as I’m in love. This is only a small haul as I’m trying to avoid spending money at the moment but I am so happy that I treat myself to these products as all three have been game changing! The three products I picked up were the  ...

Beat the Kink Bobble Review

For months all I've seen and heard about is the Invisibobble and I have to admit I was intrigued. Now that my hair has grown to the point where can (finally!) start tying it back, I realised that I actually needed to invest in some new hair bobbles- most of my old ones seem to have gone for a walk. The pet hate that I've always had with traditional bobbles is that they kink your hair. Since I have very thin hair I only have to have it back in a ponytail for a few minutes for this to  ...

Boots Haul & Real Techniques First Impressions 

Okay so I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’ve never owned any Real Techniques brushes. Ever. I think I was one of the only people that didn’t! Almost all my friends have been telling me for ages that I need to invest in some and a lot of the bloggers I read and watch speak highly of them, so I decided it was time to bite the bullet and give them a go. It turned out that this was one of the best choices I’ve made in a while as when I looked on Boots.com they  ...

My New Skincare Routine

I’ve never been particularly interested in skincare products or even makeup until the last year or so. Now don’t get me wrong, I’d wash my face daily and even use moisturiser when I remembered to but that was about it. I had no idea what a cleanser or a toner was and would use cheap primark makeup wipes to take my makeup off! Now though I’m all about looking after myself and have found that it helps loads with my self-confidence. It’s also one of my August  ...

NYX Lip Lingerie Letdown 

Yesterday I went for a long overdue catch up with one of my friends in Meadowhall and we decided to do a bit of shopping (of course!). I had a ton of Boots points saved up and I knew exactly what I wanted to buy with it- the NYX Lip Lingerie! I’d seen so many good things said about this and I already own two of the Liquid Suede ones so I couldn’t wait to try this out. I’ve been wanting a more nude colour for the days when I don’t want a statement lip so I picked up  ...
