Review: W7 Deluxe Lipstick* and Rose Glow Blush*

Yes, another #Oxmeet post – this bag of goodies is never-ending! I am honestly overwhelmed with how generous all the companies who donated have been! In amongst all the other bits and bobs were two items from W7, which is not a brand I’d heard of before, but I’m very glad that I now have, because these pieces are really high-quality for such a budget brand. In my bag were this fabulous red Deluxe Lipstick (no sign of a shade name) and very pretty blush in Rose GlowContinue reading

Instant Repurchases!

Everyone has those few products that they are completely loyal to, their Holy Grail items that they are lost without. And if one of them finishes, it’s a nervous rush to Boots to get a new one! Here are my staples – if one of these runs out, then there’s no question I’ll be re-buying it immediately!

No prizes for guessing what the first of my ‘Instant Repurchases’ is: yep, it’s Herbal Essences Bee Strong Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve barely used anything else since I bought my first bottle, and I’ve repurchased it six or seven times. Something about it just really suits my hair! I won’t bore you by rehashing my original review, so I’ll just leave a link to it (hint: it’s glowing). Continue reading

Face of the Day: Pretty Pinks

I’ve never done a Face of the Day post before, but I was really pleased with my make up yesterday, and since I appear to have gone up a Blogger Level and gained the ability to take not-awful photos of my own face, I thought I’d show you! This is a very pink-based look, because I wanted to add a bit of colour to my normal revision look (ie, boring).  Continue reading

Review: Mac Rebel Lipstick

A couple of weeks ago, I won Little Bit Soph‘s 500 follower giveaway, and am now the proud owner of MAC Rebel lipstick! I’ve never owned anything from MAC before, so I was really excited to choose one of their lipsticks. As a die-hard bold pink lip lover, it had to be Rebel, which looks terrifyingly purple in the bullet, but is actually a really pretty raspberry pink. Read on for many, many attempts at taking pictures of my own face… Continue reading

Review: Lush Emotional Brilliance in Sophisticated* and Fantasy

P1050312

Lush’s Emotional Brilliance is a widely varied range of highly pigmented liquid eyeliners, eyeshadows and lipsticks – these are definitely targeted at the higher-end of the high street market, at £14.50 a colour, but the richness of the formula makes these worth saving up for. I’ve previously reviewed Decisive, a classic red lipstick, and Motivation, a metallic teal liner, and they’ve become fixtures in my make up bag. When I was in Lush last week for the #OxMeet blogger meet up, I was thrilled to find Sophisticated*, a pearly taupe eyeshadow, in my goody bag, and couldn’t help but add Fantasy, a gold eyeliner, myself.  Continue reading

Review: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon and Candy Apple

P1040990

Okay, so I know everyone who’s anyone has already got at least a hundred of these Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters – they were a huge deal for a while in the blogging world, but somehow I never picked any up. Well, that was a huge mistake, as it turns out. I bought a couple a few weeks ago, when I found myself with a surplus of Boots points, and I think these might just be my favourite lipsticks for Spring (when it eventually gets here). I bought Wild Watermelon, a corally red (upright) and Candy Apple, a true red (lying down) – yes, a little heavy on the reds, but although they look very similar in the above picture, there’s actually a pretty substantial difference that totally justifies owning both.  Continue reading

Review: & Other Stories Blush in Applebloom Pink

This is a product I’ve had for a long while, but I never got around to reviewing it. It would be too much of a shame not to show it to you, because it’s simply one of the prettiest things in my make up bag!
