Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette & Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss in Pure Peach Review

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette & Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss in Pure Peach
So it has finally happened... I gave into temptation and bought the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette! I swear I have seen this on Instagram every single day since it's release, and I can see why! The packaging is SO cute, and the shades are such a gorgeous mix of peachy and bronze shades that I can imagine would look good on anybody. But is it worth the hype and the money?

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick: Review & Swatch

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick

Hello Beauties! I hope you're all doing well and looking forward to the weekend. A little while ago I won a Twitter competition run by the lovely Laura from Laurzrah blog, and the prize was this little beauty! Can you believe it?! I was so surprised because I haven't won anything like this before! I did a little jump when it arrived in the post, in the gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury packaging and with a cute note from Laura inside. I know this has been reviewed a lot lately as it is such a popular shade, but I couldn't resist photographing and reviewing it for the blog!

10 High-End Makeup Items That Are Worth the Splurge

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, Tom Ford Lipstick

Hello Beauties, hope you're all having a good week so far! Today on the blog I wanted to share ten high-end makeup items that I've bought and that I have never regretted buying (well technically 9 as one was a gift but, you know). Whenever I'm considering buying something expensive, I usually research the hell out of it to see whether it's going to be money down the drain or instead change my life and face for the better. There's nothing worse than spending your hard earned money on something and it doesn't live up to your expectations, so I thought it would be handy to have a little run down of products that I have been obsessed with since I bought them and would re-purchase.

How I Edit My Instagram Pictures

How I Edit My Instagram Pictures

I absolutely love Instagram, and even with all the changes it has been through recently it is still my favourite social media platform. Call me sad but taking pictures for Instagram and my blog is one of my favourite things to do, and I enjoy putting together a theme for my pictures so I have a cohesive Instagram feed. I thought I'd share today how I edit my Instagram pictures - the different apps I use on my phone including which settings I use, and how I use Photoshop for my DSLR photos. I hope you enjoy!

Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Topper in Skinny Dip - Review & Swatches

Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Topper in Skinny Dip - Review & Swatches

Hello Beauties, I hope you're having a good week so far! I am so excited to have this on the blog today, as it is one of my FAVOURITE new purchases. I was so excited for this to arrive after seeing it on Instagram, and when it finally reached me I was not disappointed. If you haven't seen these yet, the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Toppers (£13.50) are described as an 'iridescent lip-lustre' that you put on top of your favourite lipstick to give it a glimmering finish. The recent trend for metallic lips is not one that I've been too interested in - mainly because I like to stay quite classic with my makeup, but as soon as I saw how pretty Skinny Dip looked, I had to try it.

NYX Lid Lingerie Eye Tint Sweet Cloud

Hello Beauties hope you're all having a fab start to the week! If you read my high-street makeup haul post, you'll know that I recently picked up one of the NYX Lid Lingerie Eye Tints in the shade Sweet Cloud. I won't lie to you, the minute I swatched it on my hand I was obsessed. I thought I'd do a little review and a makeup look with it; spoiler alert - it's incredible.

Eylure Lashes Review - Cheryl Sexy Senorita and Vegas Nay Shining Star

Eylure Lashes - Cheryl Sexy Senorita and Vegas Nay Shining Star

Who doesn't love an amazing pair of false lashes? They can totally transform your eye makeup and for me I just love them for when I want to feel a bit more glam. I also find that they have the added bonus of hiding a multitude of sins - if I have seriously messed up my eye makeup. I throw a pair of lashes on and somehow it instantly looks better! Quite a few years ago I used to wear some seriously bad eyelashes; I'm talking the massive thick black lashes that look like a big black moth has taken residence on your eyelid. Sometimes if I was feeling particularly wild, I would wear two pairs of those bad boys at a time. It took me a while to realise that this was NOT a good look, and actually in pictures they were making me look half asleep/drunk because they were so heavy! Wind on a few years and now I much prefer softer lashes.

My Holy Grail Blushers - Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown Blushers

Hello Beauties I hope you're all having a good week! I wanted to carry on my little Holy Grail series today with one of my favourite makeup items - blusher. As you can guess from the title and the fact that I've featured them on the blog a fair few times my favourite formula has to be the Bobbi Brown blushers. I love the colour range and I feel like they are very different to other brands in that they tend to be very bright in the pan, but when you apply them they look so fresh and give the most gorgeous pop of colour. I use these on myself but they are also pretty much the only blushers I keep in my kit.
