Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam Dark Review ♥

Sunday, 30 April 2017


If you read my last post about my trip to Ibiza and what I'd been up to lately, you will know I mentioned a gorgeous tanning product that I've been obsessed with over the past month. I've always been a huge lover of all things fake tan. I feel like I look so much healthier, and better with a bit of tan in my life, and I know the dangers of tanning beds, and sunbathing, not that we can do much sunbathing in the UK anyway, but you get my drift, UV rays can be so harmful and not worth the risk when you can get an even better, natural looking tan out of a bottle. Over the years I've tried so many fake tans, whether it be gradual ones, foams, mouses, shower tans, you name it, I've tried them. I have two firm favourites when it comes to fake tans, but of course like many like minded beauty geeks that doesn't stop me trying more products. I've heard loads about Bondi Sands over the past couple of months, so when I noticed a bottle of their raved about self tanning foam on offer in Superdrug I had to try it for myself and see what all the fuss was about. So here are my thoughts, it's quite a lengthy post, but this is my new favourite tan, and I'm not sure I'll ever go back now I've used this stuff. It's honestly SO amazing, I promise if you read to the end, it will be really worth it ...

♥ Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam in DARK - £14.99 - Available here

♥ Price -
Ok so lets talk about the price. I know compared to the likes of St Moritz, and other tanning foams on the market, this probably seems quite expensive at £14.99, however for the quality of the tan after application, it honestly is worth the price tag and every single penny, and for a 200ml bottle, when you don't have to use tons of this stuff to see results, you can't really complain.

♥ Scent -
Something which instantly made me swoon as soon as I applied this gorgeous stuff, was the lovely scent of this tan. To me, it smells like all things holiday and coconuts. None of that disgusting biscuit smell that sadly lingers for hours, with many fake tans. No, just all things fresh and coconut, and best of all, the scent lingers, and doesn't fade into any other scent after a few hours. Another thing I've  found with many fake tans that don't smell like biscuits is, they smell really good for the first hour after you've applied them, but then once the tan is developed your back to that, good old biscuit scent again. Not with Bondi Sands, you'll smell like coconuts until you shower the tan off.


 ♥ Application and Formula- 
To apply I use this tanning mitt, which is really affordable, and super easy to use. I used the pump function to simply squirt the tan from the bottle, onto my mitt, and then apply the tan in circular motions. Something I adore about this tan, is the actual colour of the tan itself when you're applying it, it's a brown shade with a green undertone - yet another thing I was really impressed with because green undertones in a tan, ensure you don't go orange, but instead turn into a tanned goddess! Anyway back to application, the colour is like I said, a dull, dark brown, don't be alarmed by this because this isn't the colour that your tan develops into. However it does really help with application because you can see exactly where you need to blend in the tan, and also if the tan is uneven.

The texture of the tan is quite velvety, it smoothes really easily into the skin, and is applied with no fuss at all. It's not messy either and best of all doesn't stain everything it comes into contact with! I'm usually not a fan of a foam tan, but I find this one really simple and enjoyable to use. I really like that he formula doesn't leave your skin feeling sticky either! In my opinion the worst thing about applying fake tan is feeling like you can't put your clothes on afterwards, because you're a sticky mess, not with this stuff girls, it absorbs into the skin within 5 minutes, so that you are able to put clothes on without worrying the tan will transfer and stain your clothing. Still be wary that you have tan on though, because I would say it's not fully dry until after around 30 minutes.

Once you've applied your tan, got your clothes on and are chilling with some magazines and a hot chocolate, it's up to you to decide how long you'd like to leave the tan on to develop. Bondi Sands say that you can leave it on to develop anywhere between 1 hour and 6 hours, depending on your desired tan. Obviously the longer you leave it on, the more tanned you will be. I tend to apply this after showering and prepping my skin by exfoliating, and then leave the tan on overnight. Oops call the beauty blogger police, as I know it states to only leave it on 6 hours, but like I said I'm such a tan freak that I like to be as tanned as possible, and this way, it allows me to wear the tan without having to go out in the day and feel uncomfortable wearing it whilst it's developing. Don't quote me on this, but I'm guessing the tan will just stop developing after 6 hours anyway. I've had no problems doing this and have only ever woken up to gorgeous, deep, tanned skin!


I bought the shade Dark, even though my skin is naturally quite pale, I like to be quite tanned and feel that light to medium tan options, barely touch the surface for me. I always buy the Dark option no matter what tan I use. However colour pay off wise, this is the best 'Dark' option I've ever used. It doesn't leave you looking a ridiculously unnatural shade of brown or should I say orange? Nor is it too pale. It's that perfect shade, it's somewhere in between. I was quite surprised that the 'Dark' Bondi Sands option wasn't actually as 'Dark' as I had imagined when I left the tan to develop overnight, with just one coat, it gives me a gorgeous, even sun kissed tan, that isn't orange or streaky in the slightest. However to get my desired level of tan, because I'm quite the tan freak, I tend to apply two coats and leave it to develop overnight, and the finish is honestly so beautiful, it's a real deep, sunkissed, olive brown tan. I can't emphasise enough how natural it looks. I always receive so many compliments from people who think I've been holiday because it's that natural, with not even the smallest amount of orange in sight.

When I apply two layers of this tan, I do my first coat, leave it for 30 minutes and then go onto apply my second coat. However on my second coat, I avoid areas such as elbow, ankles, hands, kneecaps and feet and just apply 1 coat to those otherwise it can start to look a little unnatural and patchy. True story.

Once you've left the tan on to develop for your desired amount of time, it will probably appear quite dull and darker than you'd imagine, however this is just the formula of the tan and not the actual tan itself. You simply wash it off in the shower with medium heat water. If it's too hot it will ruin your tan, if it's too cold it wont wash away properly. Don't use shower gel or anything, simply use the water to wash away the tan. Once you've washed the tan away, you pat your skin dry with a towel, you are left with the most beautiful, even and best of all natural results. You just have to see it for yourselves, honestly it's amazing.


 ♥ Lasting Power -
Now for the best part? LASTING POWER. This is the best tan I've used both for colour results and lasting power. Believe me, I am the worst person at moisturising my skin, I'm not one of those people that moisturise day and night and if I was I'm sure this tan would last me a whole month. Instead I apply this tan on a weekly basis, after showering and exfoliating, I don't really moisturise at all over the next 7 days, and it tends to just fade gradually over the following week, after around 7 days, I find that it does start to look a little bit patchy in certain areas, however not massively noticeable and a lot less patchy than some tans after 7 days. At that point, I will do the same routine over again, shower, exfoliate and reapply. It's really simple and straightforward.

 ♥ Cons- 
With all products, there of course is a couple of cons. The only thing I can fault about the Bondi Sands foam,  is how difficult it can be to remove if you apply a bit too much to drier areas such as your hands, elbows etc. I guess it emphasises how good this gorgeous tan is at actually staying on, but it can be awkward to remove if it went a bit wrong. Like I said true story. But definitely my own fault. I did this my second time applying, when I got a bit too brave, and decided to go in for the 3rd coat just to see what the results would be like (never again on my pale skin), I ended up looking too dark in drier areas with a bit of build up, however, now I know my limits are to take it easy and only apply 2 coats because I'm quite pale. FYI a little tip from one fake tan lover to another, add a bit of lemon juice, into your regular exfoliator or scrub when trying to remove tough fake tan if you ever find yourself in that situation and it really does the trick.

Also my only other tiny, warning with this product is to definitely let the tan dry thoroughly before applying clothing or going to sleep as it can leave an annoying red transfer if you don't allow it to dry properly before applying clothing or getting into bed. However, these stains do come out, so not to fret if you're freezing and want to put your clothes on as soon as possible aha.

Overall I'm SO impressed with this tan and I can't believe how beautiful and natural the tans results are and how well it lasts on my skin! I've finally found my holy grail fake tan! I'm not sure anything will ever top this one! :) You can purchase the Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam in Dark for £14.99 here.

I'm really looking forward to trying more of the Bondi Sands range, which products would you recommend from them?

Life Lately Snippets. ♥

Wednesday, 26 April 2017


♥ 1. IBIZA - Yep, if you follow me on Instagram (which you can do here) or Twitter (which you can do here, shameless self promoting, idec.) you'll know that I went travelling around Ibiza at the beginning of April and honestly it was amazing. I'd never been to Ibiza before, but had obviously heard loads about the party island. I stayed out of the crazy party scenes like San Antonio because that's not really me, but I adored the beautiful and quiet coasts that were full of pretty shops and cocktail bars. It was really quiet, because the season doesn't officially start until May, but nevertheless it was such a gorgeous mini break, and the weather was beautiful, I even got a tan! My Fiance and I stayed in a place right by the sea, and woke up to the beautiful fresh, sea breeze each morning and the sunrise shining through our apartment window and it was honestly, heaven. If you want to go to Ibiza but avoid the partygoers, a place I'd recommend that we enjoyed visiting while we were there, is Es Canar and other surrounding areas including Santa Eulalia, where it's just beautiful white sand beaches, bright blue sea, and lots of sightseeing with cute cocktail bars, and quirky shops, without any rowdy clubbers, or Pacha in sight. We had the best time and I enjoyed myself so much, it was great to get away! Have any of you ever been to Ibiza? Did you enjoy it? What did you get up to?

♥ 2. I was gutted about coming back from Ibiza, like I said the break was amazing, and the weather was beautiful. However we were blessed with some really lovely sunshine and gorgeous sunny temperatures in the UK, within a few days of my return. It definitely made coming home a whole lot easier, I loved going for Spring walks with my man, and sitting in the garden with a few magazines, a yummy smoothie and sunglasses in hand, or on face? I picked up these beaut glasses from New Look for just £8.99,  a few weeks ago, and I've worn them so much since. They're so on trend at the moment and I love that they are Rose Gold. Give me all the Rose Gold.

♥ 3. Just another Ibiza appreciation photograph. How blue is the sea?! It was so pretty there, it's unreal.

♥ 4. As many of you will know, I'm a real gel nail lover. I get my nails done religiously every 4 weeks and I will always update you with my fresh nail colour when I get my nails did at the salon via my Instagram, which you can follow here. Over recent months, I've been opting for plum/berry shades or nudes. However since we've been experiencing some gorgeous warm weather, and Spring has certainly sprung, I noticed this gorgeous pastel lilac shade and knew I had to try it. It looks so beautiful, if I do say so myself and is so girly! I really love it. What do you guys think?

♥ 5. These are a few clothing staples that I've been loving recently. I wore both the gorgeous tan coloured sandals, and floral embroidery A-line skirt whilst I was in Ibiza and I received so many compliments. I'm obsessed with this whole floral embroidery trend at the moment, it's sooo me. You can find these beauties at New Look, the tan sandals are just £19.99 and are available here, and the beautiful button up A line skirt was just £24.99 and is available here. Who else is loving the embroidery trend at the moment?

♥ 6. I'm loving all the beautiful flowers that are blooming at the moment. It makes me so happy!!!

♥ 7. I'm obsessed with the Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam in Dark at the moment, although I had a tan when I came back from Ibiza, I used this stuff to enhance my tan and maintain it and I've received so many compliments on how natural it is. Honestly can't wait to tell you more about this exciting stuff. Full review coming this Sunday at 8am. If you're a fake tan lover, you need to read it! You won't regret it!!

♥ 8. How cute are my new jeans from Topshop? I am so pleased with them because, I actually bought them off eBay for just £5!! They were such a bargain because they were originally over £50 to purchases online or in store. Click here to see what they actually look like. I love the badge detailing on them, they're so pretty! I've been teaming them with these beautiful Rose Gold ballet pumps which were only £10.99 from New Look available here, yep I'm pretty obsessed with New Look recently! Not forgetting my trusty NARS Orgasm Blush, and MAC Coral Bliss lipstick to finish off this look.

♥ 9. How could I write this post without mentioning something I've been using DAILY over the past month? I reviewed the gorgeous Benefit GALifornia Blush this month, but just in case you missed it, this blush is absolutely stunning! It's like Summer in a little box. I've been applying this stuff to the apples of my cheeks and it gives me such a lovely, healthy, golden and natural summery glow. I just love it so much. If you haven't tried it yet, you really need to. The scent is to die for too. It's available here for £24.50


What have you guys been up to recently? 
Have you ever been to Ibiza? What clothing stores are you loving at the moment? Are you loving the floral embroidery trend just as much as I do?

Have a really lovely day!

My Top 5 Spring Lipsticks. ♥

Sunday, 23 April 2017


♥ Today I thought I'd talk about one of the greatest loves of my life: lipsticks. Ahh I'm such a lipstick girl. Honestly, I hate to think of the amount of money I've spent on lipsticks over the years. There is just something so special in my heart about lipsticks, the make up lover in me swoons when I find a pretty shade in Boots, I swatch away until I'm given funny looks by Boots staff. Now that warmer weather is finally upon us, and the flowers are finally blooming, we can officially say Spring has sprung. There's nothing I love more than changing up my make up during Spring, and obviously what would my make up change be without swapping some of my winter berry and plum shades for some bright, pretty pink and corals? Here are my top 5 Spring lipsticks, that scream all things pretty and spring!

♥ From left to right: MAC Fan Fare, L'oreal Collection Exclusive by Naomi, MAC Peach Blossom, L'oreal Collection Exclusive by Eva, MAC Coral Bliss. Swatches and in depth reviews of each lipstick below.

♥ MAC Coral Bliss - £16.50 - available here 

If this lipstick doesn't scream all things Spring then I don't know what will?! Who doesn't love a bit of Coral in their lives, especially during the warmer months? The only problem for me, is that I'm not one of those people who suit a bright, pink coral. So when I spotted this little beauty in my local MAC, I knew it would suit my pale skin and blonde hair perfectly, and enhance my skin tone, without washing me out. I was right!! However don't be put off, as this would suit darker skin tones and compliment them so well, as it looks beaut paired with a tan too. Coral Bliss is a gorgeous, light coral, that has just the right amount of coral without looking overly orange. Best of all, it's not one of those corals that have loads of pink in either, it's just what it says on the tin, Coral. It's extremely easy to wear. The cremesheen formula makes it lush to apply this lipstick, and the pigmentation makes colour pay off quite a thrill too. With just one application, you have the perfect amount of colour and you're good to go, with soft, hydrated and creamy lips too! It fades nicely and evenly throughout the day, and lasts anywhere between 3-4 hours. Honestly if you haven't swatched this before, you really need to. I think you will all love it so much! :) 

♥ L'oreal Paris Collection Exclusive by Eva - £4.50 available here

Sadly this little beaut is limited edition and is no longer sold in highstreet stores such as Boots or Superdrug but I have managed to find it being sold on Amazon for just £4.50, so if you're interested I would definitely recommend it. This gorgeous shade is perfect for Spring and Summer, it really compliments a tan and any outfit on a warm, gorgeous day. The shade itself is a gorgeous, rich, bold, medium, bright pink, created specifically for skin tones and hair colours similar to Eva Longoria, one of L'oreal's brand ambassadors, although I don't have lovely, naturally tanned skin like Eva, and I'm pretty pale with blonde hair, this really suits me, so don't worry so much if you haven't got the same skin tone or hair colour as Eva, as I'm sure it will look just as amazing on you! I like to wear this especially on holiday, or on a sunny day with some bronzer and it looks amazing! The colour looks really bold when you look at the bullet, however the pigmentation is much less strong and bold once applied, something which I believe is a great thing, as the colour enhances your natural colour, and gives you that gorgeous pop of colour you crave, without worrying about application, or lip liner. This couldn't be any easier to apply, it has enough pigmentation so that you can apply on the go, fuss free, even without a mirror, with one swipe of this dreamy stuff over your lips, you're good to go. The formula is fairly long lasting, with top ups needed every 3-4 hours, though once applied it leaves a gorgeous stain on your lips. The best thing about this lipstick is the gorgeous texture, it leaves a somewhat matte finish, adding a gorgeous coral pink, pop of colour but it keeps your lips hydrated and is so comfortable to wear. I can't recommend this beaut enough! 

♥ MAC Peach Blossom - £16.50 - available here

Ahh this is my all time favourite lipstick. It's that shade, that is my lips but better. I wear this all year round anyway, but when the flowers are blooming, and Spring has sprung, I'm pretty much wearing this beauty, most days. Every body needs this colour in their collection no matter what skin tone you have. However, calling all you pale girls out there, with a similar skin tone to myself, if you want that 'my lips but better shade' this one is THE ONE.♥♥♥ When you see this, it probably doesn't really shout out to you much, and when you're in MAC it's probably the shade you don't even bat an eyelid to, however if you haven't tried this, girl you're missing out. It matches every make up look and outfit without fail, the shade itself is a light rose, nude with a lovely mixture of peach thrown into the mix too. The pigmentation is good, and the colour in the bullet is similar to the colour pay off, when applied only once. The cremesheen formula makes application a dream the final colour pay off once applied is even, comfortable to wear and feels gorgeous on your lips, it keeps your lips feeling creamy, soft and hydrated, and the formula doesn't cling to dry areas at all. The only downside is that its not as long lasting as I'd like, it probably lasts around 1-2 hours before having to reapply, but the gorgeous shade, amazing formula and ease of application, makes it worth the while. 

♥ L'oreal Paris Collection Exclusive by Naomi - £6.99 - available here

I mentioned this gorgeous pink lipstick collection by L'oreal , which is sadly limited edition, above. However, like I said before I have found a very cheap seller on Amazon that is selling these beauties, so you're in luck if you like the look of this beauty. This is a gorgeous subtle, natural, light, rose pink shade that adds that little bit of Spring pink into your make up collection, without shouting it from the roof tops. If you aren't a pink lipstick fan, or you find pink shades don't suit you very much, I'd highly recommend this beauty. It's pretty much a nude lipstick with a hint of pink. This lipstick doesn't take the focus away from different parts of your make up, so if you're rocking that gorgeous smokey eye or winged liner, this is perfect because it enhances your lip colour, adding a gorgeous rose pink shade, without going wild. The lovely, natural rose pink shade would probably compliment every skin tone. Again, just like the Eva lipstick above, the Naomi shade is really comfortable to wear, adding hydration to your lips, and giving you a gorgeous semi-matte finish without enhancing or clinging to drier areas. It lasts around 3-4 hours before having to reapply. 

♥ MAC Fan Fare - £16.50 - available here

The photograph above makes this lipstick look pretty light in the bullet, but if you look at the swatches below you'll see how truly beautiful this shade is. It's been one of my all time favourite MAC lipsticks for as long as I can remember, I reach for it all year round as it's so natural but the pink hues in it have me reaching for it so much more, come Spring time. This gorgeous shade is a salmon pink, with coral undertones. It's a mid tone pink that would compliment most skin tones, it especially suits my pale skin as the pink really stands out, and you can see the coral undertones very clearly, they are so complimenting and add a gorgeous look to any outfit or make up look. However obviously depending on your skintone, a different colour pay off will show, so I'm sure it will look beautiful paired next to most, if not all skin tones. This is a cremesheen formula, which means it's an absolute dream to apply, and so comfortable to wear. You simply cream this into your lips and with one application, you get an excellent colour pay off, and you're good to go. Application is made easy for on the go, there's no fuss or mess and as always with MAC lipsticks, pigmentation is amazing. Staying power is fairly good, it lasts around 2-3 hours before having to reapply, and leaves a lovely stain of colour on your lips. If you want an every day, Spring lip colour that adds a pop of pink, and a slight hint of coral, this is the one! 

♥ Swatches from top to bottom: L'oreal Paris Collection Exclusive by Naomi, MAC Peach Blossom,  MAC Coral Bliss, MAC Fan Fare, L'oreal Paris Collection Exclusive by Eva ♥ 

I hope you've all found a lipstick that you love today, and that you're keen to try for yourselves this Spring. I would love to hear what your favourite lipstick or lipgloss is at the moment, as I'm always on the look out for new beauty and make up finds, especially when it comes to lipsticks.

Have a fab day!

Review - Benefit GALifornia Blush. ♥

Sunday, 16 April 2017

Benefit GALifornia Blush - £24.50 - available here ♥

As promised in my previous blog post where I discussed all of my current favourites,  today I'm sharing a review of a make up product that has been the talk of the beauty bloggersphere over the past  couple of months and that is the infamous GALifornia Blush from Benefit Cosmetics. If you didn't know already, I'm such a sucker for anything by Benefit. It will always be that beauty brand that reminds me of my teenage days when I saved up all my pocket money to buy their latest launch. I think their packaging is so beautiful and never disappoints but the actual products themselves are also pretty amazing and swoon-worthy. I always get very excited by their new launches, and their box-o powders have always been favourites of mine, and this gorgeous, summery blush is no exception, so let's see what all the fuss is about...


Ok first off, let's discuss the packaging, oh my goodness, how beautiful? It ticks all the Benefit boxes for me, it's pretty, bright, colourful and very girly. It's right up my street very boho chic, and inspired by 1970's California Girls, it's undeniably pretty.  I also love the name of the blush. I don't know why, but I think it's really cute. I like the box, compact packaging as it's lightweight and easy to carry on the go. As always with Benefit Box-O-Powder's a small application brush is supplied, though I never use these myself.

Now onto the actual blush itself. Wow, if you thought the packaging was beautiful, wait until you see the stunning blush itself. It is embossed with such a pretty design and if you look closely, you will notice a gorgeous gold overspray, which I was so excited by, as I love a a bit of shimmer in my life, however sadly it's just an overspray and after first application, there is little shimmer in this blush. It is quite a soft matte finish, which I will say I was a little saddened by, however many will be pleased to know because I know shimmer isn't for everybody. The shade however makes up for the lack of shimmer in the blush, in my opinion.


It is a shade that will without a doubt compliment all skin tones, and suit many, it's such a golden sunny, coral pink shade that I find so hard to find on the shelves these days. I love coral blushes, especially for this time of year when you want a pop of colour on your cheeks, however many coral blushes are either too overpowering or orange, or boring and rosy. Fear no more, Benefit has created such a beautiful, natural and complimenting shade here, with flattering orange based pink tones that will compliment many skin tones. It's just what we all needed.

Pigmentation is brilliant, it's just what you'd expect from your typical Benefit blush. As this is a coral shade, you don't want pigmentation to be too harsh anyway, as you will end up with a clown looking finish. However GALifornia offers just the right pigmentation to leave you looking healthy, glowing and gorgeous.

Application is honestly like a dream, I use a fluffy brush to apply and sweep it into the apples of my cheeks in an upwards motion. The blush doesn't highlight pores or any fine lines and lasting power is pretty insane too. I apply this in the morning before work, at around 6am, and it is still noticeable and looking rather pretty at 5pm, it doesn't smudge or travel across your face. It stays in place perfectly, leaving you with a gorgeous summery, golden glow all day long.

Swatch of GALifornia Blush - £24.50 - Benefit - available here. ♥

An added bonus is that the blush itself is scented, and fear not, the fragrance doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. GALifornia has a gorgeous, summery vanilla and fruity scent, that leaves you wanting to sniff the blush all day long. If only Benefit could bring out a perfume and spray that has the same scent as this gorgeous blush, I would be a very happy customer indeed. :)

If you want summer in a box, and a healthy, summery, golden glow all year round, Benefit have got you covered with this gorgeous blush. I'd totally recommend it, I know I'm going to be reaching for it so much over the coming months.

Have you tried GALifornia? What are your thoughts?

Current Favourites.♥

Wednesday, 12 April 2017

There is nothing I love more than having a little nosy at what other people are loving at a current moment. If I ever find a current favourites blog post, or YouTube video I'm there like a crazy lady. It's one of my favourite ways to find amazing things to try out for myself, whether it be a fab tv show somebody is obsessed with, a new lipstick launch which has that perfect shade for me, or a perfume that has a scent to die for. If somebody has shared something in their favourites and you have a similar taste, you KNOW it's going to be good and that you'll be just as obsessed, which makes it all the more exciting and slightly bad for your bank balance. Today I thought I'd share all of my current favourites, from perfume, blush, and bath products to TV shows, shoes, and jewellery. It's very random but these are the things I'm currently reaching for the most and obsessed with.

♥ Benefit GALifornia Blush - £24.50 - available here
I'm not going to go into too much detail about this blush, because I'm going to be doing a full review this Sunday at 8am, so keep your eyes peeled if you want to see pretty swatches and a review of my honest thoughts on this new fave in the blogging world. However I will say this blush is absolutely stunning. It's perfect for this time of year as it adds that perfect amount of sunny, golden glow without looking too overpowering, I've been reaching for it so much over the past month. 


♥ Rose Gold Ballet Pumps - New Look £10.99 - available here 
These were a sneaky online purchase, where I swooned instantly over the Rose Gold shade, however when they arrived I fell in love even more. They are the prettiest, rose gold shimmery ballet pumps I've ever seen. Not only are they an absolute bargain at just £10.99, they are so comfortable, and girly and they add such a pretty feel to any outfit. I'm obsessed with them, and they're so on trend at the moment. Give me all the Rose Gold. 
 ♥ NARS Orgasm Blush - £23 - available here 
Yet another blush I've been reaching for so much recently, especially while I was in Ibiza is the infamous NARS Orgasm Blush. If you haven't heard of this beauty, you've been living under a rock. It's loved by so many beauty bloggers and YouTubers, as well as the Kardashian's and Jenner girls, but most importantly I'm OBSESSED with it. It is such a stunning, pink, shimmery blush that adds  a gorgeous, natural glow to your cheeks. It makes you look healthy, glowing and amazing. If you haven't tried this before you NEED to. It's a little on the pricey side, but honestly worth every penny as you can wear it all year round! 

♥  Rose Gold Bangle - £15 - Accessorize - available here 
You may have saw this little beauty on my Instagram page (which you can follow here) and many of you fell in love with it, just as much as I did when I spotted it in my local Accessorize. I've always been obsessed with their jewellery as it's so pretty, dainty and long lasting and this beaut is no exception. I always manage to end up in the Rose Gold section of their stores too, and when I noticed this I instantly fell in love, it compliments any outfit, as it is so feminine and beautiful. I think it looks a lot more expensive that it actually is, and who doesn't love a bit of Rose Gold in their life? 

♥ Miss Dior Eau De Parfum - £52 - available here 
My lovely fiancé bought me this perfume, when I opened the gift, I fell in love with the girly and very classy, stunny packaging. I adore the bow detail and the bottle sits very prettily on my dressing table. I had never smelt it before, so I was pleasantly surprised when I gave it a try. It's a much more 'grown up' scent than I'm used to. Even though I'm in my twenties, I still reach for very fruity and sweet scents. However I've found myself reaching for this beauty much more often as it's very soft, and feminine with hints of stunning florals. It's something very different to what I'm used to but I've had so many compliments on the gorgeous scent, and it lasts all day long. It is described as 'timeless chic' and I have to agree. Click here for a more accurate description of the scent itself, as I'm rubbish at describing perfumes. However try and give it a go yourself with a tester, and I know you'll love it just as much.

The Ultimate Lazy Sunday. ♥

Sunday, 9 April 2017


It's been such a busy month or two for me. Almost every, single weekend and most evenings I've had something planned and I've just got back from the most amazing trip travelling around Ibiza. It was gorgeous and the weather was beautiful. Don't get me wrong, I love having plans but there is also something so amazing about having no plans at all, just chilling and having a really lazy day. I feel like everyone needs a lazy day every once in a while, or as much as possible. I'm somebody that has such a busy mind, and I'm constantly doing things or thinking of things to do, even when I'm chilling or trying to relax, so in order for me to relax and shut off I try to have one 'Lazy Sunday' every month to keep my mind, body and soul relaxed without working myself too hard. I thought I'd share with you guys my ultimate lazy Sunday, so that you can all feel just as chilled, relaxed and super lazy as I try to do. Who doesn't love a lazy day? Pyjamas all day? Yes pls.


 ♥ 1. Read - I've put this at the top of my list because it's SO important, but after this nothing goes in a particular order. Reading is one of those things that I absolutely adore doing but find it difficult to allocate time for. There's always something that comes before reading as my schedule is so busy but during my lazy Sunday's I try my best to pick up an actual book and READ. It really lifts my bookworm heart and mood. 

 ♥ 2. Have a big pampering sesh - tan (talking of fake tans, I've found a real new fave that I will be sharing very soon!), paint your nails, put a face mask on, moisturise, cleanse, put on a hair mask - do whatever makes you feel good. I find that if I dedicate a small chunk of my lazy Sunday to having a pamper session, I feel AMAZING and ready to chill without feeling gross. It's not just about LOOKING good, it's about feeling amazing. 


 ♥ 3. Read your favourite blogs/ comment and share the love - this is one of my favourite things to do, I just find it tricky finding the time to squeeze it into my busy routine. I think it's so important as bloggers to support one another and share the love so I always comment on posts I read and find enjoyable, or comment on Instagram photos I find pretty! :) 

 ♥ 4. Dedicate a small amount of time to social media but then log off - I stress 'logging off' here. I really LOVE social media but I spend far too much of my time scrolling through Twitter and Instagram. On my lazy days I limit how much time I spend scrolling because I use social media every day anyway. Whereas I use my lazy days for catching up on all the things I love doing, but don't have the time to do often enough. I spent a few days away from social media while I was in Ibiza and it was honestly amazing



 ♥ 5. Catch up on your favourite box sets - (current faves: Riverdale, Celebs Go Dating, Scandal, The Crown, Geordie Shore (yep, how cringe!) and Gilmore Girls) This goes without saying really. I do watch far too much Netflix but what would a lazy Sunday be without a bit  lots of Netflix and your favourite box sets?

 ♥ 6. Eat all the rubbish food in the world - Sorry I'm such a bad influence. I try my best to eat as healthy as I can for the majority of the week, so by the time Sunday rolls around I feel like I deserve a little all the treats. You only live once and all that right?


 ♥ 7.  Have the biggest hot chocolate - again, you only live once, don't forget the marshmallows, chocolate shavings and whipped cream though. 

 ♥ 8. Cosy up in your most comfy PJ's - again this one goes without saying. I feel like it's not a lazy day if you aren't in your most favourite and most importantly COMFY pjs. 


   ♥ 9. Light your favourite candles - current fave is 'Summer Scoop' by Yankee Candle, it reminds me of all things summery, which is perfect right now. You can purchase here

 ♥ 10. Cosy up under your favourite blanket or throw - no matter what the season, nothing beats being lazy and cuddling up with your fave and cosiest throw. 

 ♥ 11. Listen to your favourite playlist - LOUD - nothing lifts my spirits like listening to feel good music. I try to listen to as much music as possible on my lazy days and every day, to be honest! 

 ♥ 12. Browse Pinterest - ahh, I could get lost in Pinterest for hours. True story. I like to use it more often on my lazy days, to find inspiration. 

 ♥ 13. No make up and a top knot - again this goes without saying. You cannot wear a full face of make up on your lazy Sunday, it is absolutely, NOT allowed. 

What do you like to do to relax and have the ultimate lazy day?
Have a lovely Sunday - I hope you're being very lazy.

The Prettiest Spring Blush ♥

Wednesday, 5 April 2017


 Benefit Dandelion Blush - £24.50 - available here

If you didn't know already, Spring is here! I'm obsessed with all things Spring and I'm a sucker for changing up my make up a little bit when warmer, sunnier and prettier weather rolls in. Today I thought I'd share one of my all time favourite blushes with you all, one I've been reaching for so much more recently and that is Benefit's Dandelion blush. I've always been obsessed with the Beneift Box O' Powders since back in the day when they were first released, I find them some of the best blushes on the market because they're so unique, with excellent finish and colour pay off is always worth the price tag. However the Dandelion blush is a hidden beauty, and isn't raved about enough in the beauty blogging world in my opinion, it's an absolute beaut and deserves so much more recognition!

It is the prettiest subtle, dusty, baby rose, pink shade, that adds the most healthy, natural and beautiful rosy glow to your cheeks. It's a very delicate shade, and it suits my pale skin tone so well. If you're a newbie when it comes to blushes, particularly the gorgeous Benefit blushes which are known for their vibrancy, or you are pale then this is perfect for you, because it's very natural and you cannot go wrong with the colour pay off, no matter how much you apply as it stays looking natural and subtle. No clown look here guys.

The pigmentation is amazing, classic Benefit! With just a small swirl of this gorgeous stuff on the apples of my cheeks, I'm instantly given a gorgeous, healthy, rosy glow. However the colour is also buildable, meaning you can reach the look you desire easily without the finish looking 'cakey', or without highlighting pores. The formula of the blush also contains some light shimmer, which isn't particularly noticeable once you apply, however it's just the right amount so that you can notice a gorgeous, illuminating, natural glow.

Like all of the lovely Benefit Box O' Powders the packaging of Dandelion is gorgeous, and the blush conveniently comes in a compact box with a mirror and applicator blush provided which is perfect for on the go top ups.

Lasting power of the blush is amazing. I apply this daily for work, at around 6am and it's still noticeable without any smudging or fading 12 hours later. It's everything you could ask for on these lovely Spring days, what's not to love?!


Benefit Dandelion Blush - £24.50 - available here

Yet again, Benefit have not let me down with this beauty. I would definitely recommend it to those of you that want to add a pop of rose, baby pink to your daily Spring make up looks. 

What are your go to Spring products?

Sunday, 2 April 2017

Since we're in April now, I can offically say it's Spring! Ahh yes! I've been waiting for Spring for what seems like forever! Is it just me that loves Winter and all things cosy up until Christmas but then once Christmas is over, I'm all about those lighter evenings, pastel shades, flowers etc? Since Spring has definitely sprung I've been lusting after all things Spring clothing, and have been spending way too much time on clothing websites, as well as making some Spring clothing purchases which I totally didn't needed. Also who else is obsessed with blush pink and rose gold? Me, me, me. Anywho here's a Spring clothing wishlist that I'm sure your bank balance will love me for. :) You're welcome.
What are you currently lusting over?

The BEST Beauty and Self Help Books You NEED. ♥

Wednesday, 29 March 2017


If you didn't know already, I'm the biggest bookworm. One of my favourite things to do, is cosy up and get lost in a good book. So when four of my favourite things collide: beauty, self help, fashion, and BOOKS I'm hooked. I've been obsessed with beauty, fashion and self help books for as long as I remember and though I've read these same books many times, I always find new tips and advice from them every time I pick them up and get lost into them. I know many of you guys are just as obsessed with reading and of course love a bit of beauty, fashion or self help in your lives too, so today I thought I would share my favourite and most helpful, and unique beauty, self help and fashion books with you all, that have inspired me in some way. In no particular order here are my lovely faves and ones that I would recommend to you all...

♥ 1. Eat Pretty Every Day by Jolene Hart £10.99 - the ultimate guide to self care, beauty, health and nutrition. I was eager to give this book a read when I spotted it's all kinds of pretty illustrations on Instagram. It's so pretty to look at but also super insightful and inspiring, giving you all kinds of helpful tips on how to glow mind, body and soul. I'd recommend this if you're into beauty, health and wellbeing and general self help/love. It's super easy to read and you can dip in and out of it when you're looking for fresh inspiration.

♥ 2. #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso £6.99 - I still haven't finished reading all of this, but my, oh my, it's AMAZING and so inspiring! Who doesn't wanna be a Girl Boss for goodness sake? This book is packed full of informative, helpful and fabulous tips, advice and past experiences from the original Girl Boss herself Sophia Amoruso who is the founder of Nasty Gal. It's straight talking, no bull, ambitious and strong minded. Everything you need in your life. I found this book totally amazing when I was restarting my blog, and I would recommend it to every, single blogger as it so motivating, and full of inspiration from the very first page. It's just so sassy! If you want to be motivated to chase your dreams, build your own empire, start your own business and you're willing to work hard, give this a go -you won't regret it!


♥ 3. Pretty Honest - Sali Hughes £11.89 - the ultimate beauty companion in my opinion. If you're a beauty blogger, or you just adore beauty and make up, this is the book you NEED in your life, on your bedside or coffee table. I've dipped into this beauty many times, when I'm looking for sharp, passionate, warm, witty and helpful beauty advice. My copy of this is in the worst condition as it's been everywhere with me, and continues to do so. I'm just obsessed with Sali's writing style throughout this book, it's like you're speaking to your bestie, she's so to the point and honest, it's amazing. It's not full of the usual glossy, pretty photographs spread throughout many beauty books these days, it's full of helpful, interesting, unique advice and experiences that will continue to help you for many years to come. It's real beauty advice, for real women with tips that aren't hard to follow, or tricky to do. It deals with everything from skincare, to make up, to anti-ageing and teenage beauty. Try this, you honestly won't regret it.

♥ 4. Lauren Conrad - Beauty - £14.88  - Hands up if you were obsessed with The Hills? Me, me, me. Hands up if you had the biggest girl crush on Lauren Conrad and wanted to be her? Also, me, me, me. Where do I even start with this book? It's been out for YEARS, and has been a firm favourite of mine since the beginning. It's probably no surprise that this is one of my favourite beauty books, as it's raved about by many likeminded beauty bloggers and lovers. If you're a Lauren Conrad fan, and haven't read this, what are you doing with your life? Lauren shares her most favourite beauty advice, stories and secrets throughout this book from make up, and skincare, to hair and nutrition. I didn't really learn anything massively new, as she shares pretty basic tips and advice, but I love having it in my collection. If you aren't a fan of Lauren, or you're a teen or new beauty lover this would still be perfect for you as it's super informative, and well written, sharing some great tips and advice.





♥ 5. The Glam Guide - Fleur De Force £14.88 - I'm all for supporting fellow beauty bloggers and YouTubers, and though I'm not a huge fan of Fleur, I was interested in trying her beauty book for myself. I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful illustrations and pretty photographs throughout the book, and it's well written, informative writing style. Fleur shares some of her best beauty, fashion, love, fitness, self help and general advice throughout this book and again it feels like you're speaking to one of your closest friends. If you're looking to try out a beauty blogger or YouTuber's advice book, this would by far be my best recommendation. I've tried out many from Tanya Burr, Louise Pentland's (which is a close favourite and almost ended up in this post.) and also Fleur's other book The Luxe Life, but this one is the most useful, helpful, well written, pretty and interesting to date! The Glam Guide would suit all ages, and doesn't come across as childish, there are plenty of new tips that I have learnt in all kinds of areas including beauty, despite being a beauty blogger myself. It's just a really cute, little book that again you can dip in and out of whenever you need motivation, inspiration or advice.

♥ 6. Lauren Conrad - Style - £10.59 - Yes, all the heart eyed emojis for Lauren Conrad. But again my collection would simply not be the same without this book or LC in it. This book focuses solely on fashion, offering interesting, unique, helpful and cute fashion tips and advice from the beaut that is, LC. I've always loved Lauren's style and the way she effortlessly puts outfits together since her Laguna Beach days, so to have all of her best advice, tips and stories in a cute little book with lots of pretty and stunning photographs is perfect for me. Style is such a brilliant guide to building the perfect wardrobe, starting from your Basics, to statement pieces, Lauren discusses everything from t-shirts, to jewellery. The book covers everything you can think of, and if you are a fashion lover, it's a must to have in your collection! 

Have a wonderful day! I hope you've enjoyed todays post. What are your favourite beauty, fashion or self help books that I need to try?

Is Nars Sheer Glow Worth The Hype? ♥

Sunday, 26 March 2017

♥ NARS Sheer Glow - £31 - available here

YES, YES, YES.  Should I give the answer to this post away that easily? I don't even care.  You've all probably heard of this infamous foundation, it's one that is thrown about the beauty bloggersphere and raved about by many beauty bloggers and YouTubers, often given Holy Grail status too.  It took me forever to cave into the hype and purchase this foundation, as I thought it would be one of those products, that are simply hyped up, because it's by a good brand. However NARS Sheer Glow is absolutely INSANE. I couldn't have been more wrong. I don't know how I lived without this foundation in my life for so long, it's sooooo worth the hype, and in my opinion, worth every, single penny! I thought it was about time I shared my favourite foundation, EVER, with you guys. Especially because I really enjoy writing rave reviews and reviews of products I'm obsessed with. It puts me in such a good mood aha. So here we go, here's why I think NARS Sheer Glow is worth the hype, hefty price tag and is just basically the best foundation, ever! (I've tried many foundations both high and low end, so believe me, that is a huuuge compliment.)

♥ NARS Sheer Glow - £31 - available here

♥ Pros - 

Packaging - The packaging isn't really anything to rave about, it's rather simple and the foundation comes in a glass bottle, no pump sadly, more about that in the cons section below, however I really like when beauty products focus on the product itself rather than the packaging as it shows more money was spent to make the product amazing, rather than on the packaging. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a sucker for pretty packaging though!

Application - It's a dream to apply this foundation. I use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to apply this beaut, it smooths and buffs into the skin effortlessly leaving me with the most gorgeous finish and with a perfect, even base.

Formula/Texture - the liquid formula has the silkiest, and most lightweight texture. It has the perfect in between runny and creamy consistency, which makes application a dream.  Although this foundation offers amazing coverage with insane lasting power, you cannot feel that you have this  foundation on at all. It allows your skin to breathe, without feeling clogged up or greasy, you cannot feel it 'sitting' on your skin, like with many other full coverage foundations.

Coverage - For me, good coverage is something that is essential in a foundation. I opt for foundations with coverage that is on the full side, because lets face it, if you want to wear a foundation, you want good coverage. NARS Sheer Glow ticks all the boxes coverage wise, offering divine coverage, easily! It covers blemishes, spots, uneven skin tone and pigmentation perfectly with just one coat, maintaining a natural finish, and leaving my skin looking healthy and flawless. Best of all, if you want more coverage, it's buildable and doesn't leave you with a cakey finish.

Finish - Ahh the finish. All the heart eyed emojis! NARS Sheer Glow offers a satin-matte finish. Although it's called NARS 'Sheer Glow' don't be fooled by the name, there isn't anything particularly glowy about this foundation, something which I was quite surprised about when I first tried it. I was expecting a really dewy, and glowy finish, but actually the finish is rather about the natural glow of your own skin, which despite the amazing coverage, manages to peep through leaving you looking flawless, natural, healthy and glowing from all the right areas!

Lasting Power - NARS you're bae when it comes to lasting power with this beaut. I can apply this in the morning at 6am, and with a powder touch up at lunch time (around 12pm) this foundation will last me through until 5-6pm with no movement, or build up. If you have any troublesome spots it's best to carry around a concealer with you in case you need top ups on the go, but depending on your skin tone you may not need it.

Shade Range - There are over 20 shade choices in the NARS Sheer Glow range which means there is a shade for all of us girls. I opt for the shade 'Deauville' and it's literally the colour of my skin, if not a hint darker just to add a bit of colour to my skin, so that I don't look ridiculously pale.  I'm really happy with my shade choice! If you're struggling to narrow the shade choices down, and there isn't a NARS counter near you, I find the website Findation really helpful, it compares other foundation shade choices to a foundation you're looking for, so that you get a shade that is really close to what you would usually use. I find it so accurate and have used it many times when I'm making a sneaky online Feel Unique purchase and you cannot swatch the foundations in person. It has never let me down. You can find that website here. You're welcome. :)


♥ NARS Sheer Glow - £31 - available here

♥ Cons - 

No Pump - you have to purchase a pump separately, which actually drives me insane. How come I can buy a drug store foundation for a fiver and they supply you a pump, but this high end beaut won't make my life complete and give me a pump for free? NARS sort it out pls :)

SPF - sadly this foundation doesn't contain any SPF. It makes it perfect for flash photography but you will need extra SPF protection when wearing this beauty unfortunately.

Price Tag - This doesn't really count as a 'con' for me, just because I think the price tag is justified because of how amazing this foundation is. If you're on a budget I can totally understand the gasps, when you see how hefty the price tag is. Believe me, I'm a gal that loves a bargain, however if you can get a sample of this stuff, and try it for yourself, you won't regret it. I can assure you, you will be spending £31 on this foundation instantly and going into your overdraft with no thinking about whats for dinner this evening. You'll just need it in your life, no going back.

Dry Skin - I have combination skin, that is dry around my nose and eyerbows/forehead at times, and oily at the same time, especially in the t-zone. It's really hard for me to find a foundation that doesn't exaggerate my pores, or cling to dry areas. As much as I love NARS Sheer Glow,  I'm going to be honest and recommend that if you have really dry skin I would personally steer clear from using it, as my dry areas around my eyebrows hate this foundation, it clings to dry areas dramatically. On first application I was devastated. I overcome this now, by applying a fair amount of my trusty Body Shop Vitamin E Moisturiser (Read my skincare routine here) alongside NARS Sheer Glow,  and this combats the issue quite well and I don't experience the annoying clinginess as much as I used to.


So overall, I'm obsessed with NARS Sheer Glow, as with most beauty products there are pros and cons to this gorgeous stuff, but the pros will forever outweigh the cons, and I still continue to purchase this beautiful foundation, and it's irritating extra pump, every time I run out. Even if I try another foundation and love it for a while, NARS Sheer Glow will forever be my holy grail and the one I always run back to. I think I've found my foundation soulmate.

Have a lovely day!

The Products You Need For a Flawless Face In 5 Minutes. ♥

Wednesday, 22 March 2017


We've all been there. You've either slept through your alarm 'accidentally', by hitting snooze continuously for around half an hour, or just thought...'screw it', I'll skip breakfast and have an extra 20 minutes in bed. I am deserving of that extra 20 mins, especially because I was still scrolling through Twitter at 3am last night. We've all experienced that morning rush, or the absolute dread of only having 20 minutes to get ready for that all important date, you've been raving about for weeks to all the girls at work. Girl, don't worry, I gotchu!! Today I thought I'd share the 6 make up products that are literally life savers, and help a girl out on a daily basis when I'm having that all too familiar feeling of running late. As long as you have 5 minutes, I promise these make up products will leave you looking FLAWLESS...


♥ 1. Foundation - NARS Sheer Glow - £31 - What can I say about this beauty? Well first off, I'm gonna keep it brief, as I have a full review of this incredible foundation coming on Sunday at 8am. But here is a little preview...this foundation offers everything. Honestly, no matter how many foundations I try and love, something always brings me back to this beauty. It's light, with insane coverage, it's long lasting and it has the most beautiful dewy finish. If you're in a rush and need a quick fix to cover any redness or blemishes and give you the 'natural look', this foundation is perfect for you! It's on the pricey side, but you only need the tiniest amount of this product to see beautiful results, the foundation itself lasts me around 6 months, even though I'm using it daily. It blends and buffs into my skin like a dream, with the help of my trusty Real Techniques Expert Face Brush here, meaning it is perfect when you're in a rush as you aren't blending until the end of time!


♥ 2. Concealer - Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - £4.19 - Enough said. All beauty bloggers, and I'm sure most beauty and make up enthusiasts will be familiar with this infamous concealer, it is constantly raved about from every YouTuber and blogger across the land, with great reason too. It's honestly amazing, it offers great coverage, with fab lasting power and best of all for the morning rush, it is also super blendable which makes it really convenient when you haven't got enough time to be fretting about blending your concealer in. This concealer leaves you with a lightweight, perfect finish, and amazing coverage, best of all it's under a fiver. Win, win!


♥ 3. Mascara - Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara - £7.99 - Yet another raved about make up product. Do you see a theme here? Yep, the products everyone loves are the ones, that I am also obsessed with, and reach for in order to create that flawless face within 5 minutes. With just one coat of this gorgeous stuff, my lashes are instantly longer, curled, and much more volumised. It doesn't leave any annoying traces throughout the day, nor does it flake. It's incredibly long lasting, and makes my eyes look beaut. Best of all it only costs £7.99 and competes with every high end mascara I've ever tried. What more could you want?

♥ 4. Liquid Eyeliner - 'cos we all know a cat eye makes you look insane - Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner-  £6 - I know you're probably eye rolling for days right now. A cat eye within 5 minutes? Girl are you joking? No I'm certainly not! This liquid liner pen, by Soap & Glory makes a good old, classic cat eye, simple and easy. The fine tip of their pen, makes creating the perfect cat eye effortless, and the 'bold carbon black' pigmented shade makes the liner last all day long, making your eyes pop. I love this stuff, it's my go to, favourite liquid eyeliner. Trust me, I've tried many over the years and nothing beats this one, using it is effortless, no smudges, no fuss just pretty cat eyes!


♥ 5. Lipstick - MAC Peach Blossom - £15.50 - My all time favourite MAC lipstick, ever. This lipstick shade is simply stunning. It's that perfect 'my lips but better shade' that every girl needs in their collection. Just a swipe of this gorgeous stuff on the lips and I instantly look good to go, it makes my lips look gorgeous, adds a pop of natural colour, and smoothes onto the lips like a dream. The cremesheen formula couldn't make application any easier and the colour pay off is simply stunning, with long lasting results. The shade is a gorgeous light, rose, pink, peachy nude that would compliment most skin tones. Also how pretty is the shade name?


♥ 6. Blush - Benefit Dandelion Blush - £23.50 - Last but certainly not least, is my go to blush of the moment! I'm in love with this blush, it's the most perfect Spring shade ever. It's a stunning slightly shimmery, light, ballerina, rose pink, with a slight satin finish. The thing I love about this blush and why it helps create a quick, easy flawless face is because it's so effortless to apply, it also makes you look natural and is so long lasting. The formula is very lightweight, it blends into the skin beautifully, without looking powdery or highlighting any pores, it's subtle, yet noticeable at the same time, making you look healthy, and super pretty. It also lasts all day long without the need for any touch ups. I'm in love with this gorgeous stuff! It does however come with a hefty price tag, but honestly it's worth every penny and the box of this stuff has lasted me almost a year and I still haven't hit pan even though I use it almost daily! Full review, coming very soon!

I hope you've enjoyed todays post! Keep your eyes peeled for full beauty reviews of some of these beauties. What are your go to beauty and make up products that make you feel good and help you to look flawless, when you're trying to beat the morning rush or haven't got long to get ready?
