Primark Beauty Sponge FAIL

Much like anyone else, if I can save money on anything, I will. You don’t have to ask me twice. So when I saw that Primark sell beauty sponges in a pack of two for just £1.50. I didn’t hesitate putting them straight into my basket.

I had high hopes for these as I’ve heard a lot of people rave about Primark’s beauty range, both tools and makeup, so I was excited to try them out. I soon realised I’d bought latex and not the non-latex version (which I’m sure most people have been saying are he good ones), but honestly, how much different could the outcome be? Well I was about to find out..

In the pack you get two beauty sponges, one a classic beauty blender shape and the other is like an hour glass shape – one end flat, the other pointed. I decided to test out the egg shaped sponge from the set. On first impressions it’s a lot firmer than my usual Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge (£5.99, Superdrug). However keeping an open mind on the matter, I decided to not judge it fully until I’d given it a go.. so off to the sink I went.

As you well know, beauty sponges are meant to be damped before use and this ensures they only soak up excess product. So I placed the beauty sponge under the sink and low and behold, my first fail.. nothing changed. It didn’t take in any water at all, it didn’t get any bigger at all. After a good two minutes of trying to soak it under the tap, I gave up.

Still trying my best to not let this cloud my opinion, I decided to simply see how I’d get on using it anyway. To give it a true test, I used it with my favourite MAC Studio Face & Body foundation (£29.50, MAC Cosmetics). As this is a watery consistency I find it applies better with a sponge than a brush. As the sponge ensures you don’t get paint brush like strokes all over your face, it also makes sure that the product is able to soak into the skin rather than sit on top of it. This sponge however made the usually pretty natural second skin looking foundation patchy and somehow made the foundation have no coverage in the slightest. This was the point I decided I wasn’t even going to attempt my whole base, it would’ve been a write-off makeup day otherwise.

I don’t know if I’ve completely failed at attempting to use this, I have a dodgey sponge or it actually is the worst beauty sponge on the market. Either way, if you’re strapped for cash just buy the Real Techniques sponge, it’s amazing for the price and it’s still way cheaper than an actual Beauty Blender (£16, Beauty Bay).

Please let me know your thoughts on Primark beauty and if there’s any other products I should try. I’d love to hear from you.

Love, always.

The Gratitude Tag – What are you Grateful for?

Hi my loves!

I’d firstly like to thank the beautiful Jamie from Don’t Give A Jam for nominating me for this tag. I think it’s a really thoughtful one. Us beauty lovers get so caught up in makeup and how to make ourselves look prettier or more bronzed, that we sometimes forget what really matters most in life. Therefore I couldn’t wait to take part, and if I haven’t tagged you below, but you’d like to take part – please do! Let me know in the comments below if you have and I’ll be sure to check it out.

So it’s pretty simple..

R U L E S:

  • List five things that you’re grateful for. Try to think out of the box!
  • Nominate five other bloggers to do the tag.

F I V E   T H I N G S   I’ M  G R A T E F U L   F O R;

  • H E A L T H – Something a lot of us take for granted. I try my best to look after myself, eating good etc and I’m very lucky to never have broken a bone in my body (there’s still time).
  • D O G S – Honestly, the world would be a much darker place without them. Whether it’s taking my dog Bruno out for a walk, cuddling him or even watching funny videos of dogs on the internet. They bring so much joy to my life and I’d be lost without them.
  • B R E W S – There’s nothing a cup of tea can’t solve. Whether you’re thirsty, you want something to eat your biscuits with or you’re not feeling 100%. A cup of tea will always be there for you and bring you a little taste of happiness.
    N.B. In case you’re wondering I have mine with a dash of soy milk and I leave my teabag in the cup.
  • O A T C A K E S – If you’re not from Staffordshire, oatcakes to you might mean biscuits or crackers. But my god, I’m glad to have been brought up where I have. Oatcakes are the food of Gods. They are a substitute for bread, but for my preference must be eaten warm! I love mine with lots and lots of cheese. (P.s. If you still ain’t sure, just google North Staffordshire oatcakes’.)
  • F A T E – This may sound like an odd one but I am a massive believer in everything happening for a reason. Times may be hard, but they’re a lesson. Things may not work out how you want them too, but it’s because something better is waiting for you. Never focus on the negatives as life’s too short.

I   T A G:

Love, always.

It Really is a Dream Cream

Products from beauty to plants to books give themselves names that draw you in and before you know it, you’ve got another item you don’t need. Well in the case of this product from Lush, yes the fact it’s called Dream Cream had me at hello but it also lives up to its name. This is where the addiction begun..

I love walking past Lush and smelling their products and I used to be obsessed with their fresh face masks and cleansers but as I don’t live close to one of their stores anymore, I don’t find myself using any of their products. As I was making a trip to my local store for a present I decided to try out some products and this moisturiser, Dream Cream, drew me straight in as I applied it to my hands. It gave them such an amazing glow that immediately I knew I wanted to apply this under my makeup as a base. 

Dream Cream is technically a hand and body lotion (£12.95, LUSH). Lush however, is an all natural brand so there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t use any of their products where ever the hell you like. This is a cooling and smoothing cream designed to go onto even the most sensitive skins. It’s main ingredient is oat milk which has been used for centuries to calm hot damaged skin and even treat eczema.

Now I haven’t even had this product over a week and I’m already attached to it by the hip. I’ve been using it as my nighttime moisturiser, as my make up base and today I’m wearing it alone to give a gorgeous glow to my make up free face.

It makes my skin feel so smooth, I’m literally telling everyone to ‘feel how soft my face is’ because I can’t get over it. It’s not broken me out at all, and I’m prone to breaking out when a new product doesn’t agree with me, and my skin texture seems so much smoother and in a way tighter. 

For the price you get such a hefty amount, great for someone like myself who’ll be mainly using it on the face. It’s also a self preserving formula, meaning unlike the original version this one will stay fresher for longer. It’s a no brainer really.

So if you’re in the market for a new makeup base, face moisturiser or you have particularly sensitive skin that needs calming down. I would very very highly recommend this product. It is literally a dream in a tub.

Love, always.

Pink to Make the Boys Wink – Nail Art

I’m proud to announce that these nails are my own. I’ve been part of the acrylic bandwagon for over a year now and recently, I’ve been craving shorter nails. So finally I’m a natural gal!

I’d seen an image on Pinterest (if you don’t follow me on there, you should here) where a girl had super cute nude nails with a simple eyelash on her middle fingers. I absolutely adored this, but if you know me, nude nails are not my thing. However, make up is my life so I rolled with this idea.

Me and my nail tech decided to amp it up and have the eyelashes on a baby pink nail and then put a super bright neon pink on the rest.

I l o v e them! I think there super cute and they’ve got me super ready for the upcoming spring months.

Do you love them too? Any ideas on what colours I should go for next, I’m thinking pastels…

Love, always.

Beauty Bay… Will You Be My Valentine? – Soft Pink Glam Makeup Tutorial

To celebrate the ‘love’ season, I need to confess my love for someone.

As many of you may, or may not, know. I am obsessed with Beauty Bay. They have everything a makeup lover could ever need from base to lips, from high-end to low-end, from brands in the UK to brands from half way across the world. They even make me want things I don’t even need and that’s why this year I’m asking them to be my Valentine.

No matter what time of year, they keep me entertained with new products, they make me happy with amazing deals and inspire me with endless exciting makeup ideas. Yes, sometimes our relationship can be hard. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been frustrated and cried because they’ve emailed me to say somethings back in stock and when I click the link it’s sold out. But hey, not all relationships are going to run smoothly. The good times I’ve had with them outweigh the bad, and when it comes down to it my heart beats for only them.

So Beauty Bay,
My eye shadow is pink,
It makes my eyes super blue,
You’ve helped make my face flawless,
I’ve fallen for you,..
will you be my Valentine?

Okay, okay, so when it really comes to Valentines Day, I don’t think we need one day out of the whole year to express our love for someone. If you truly love someone you should tell them every day of the year! Whether you’re going on a date, hanging with your friends or simply chilling at home with your dog eating pizza, I want you to know. I appreciate each and every one of you.

To celebrate my endless love for Beauty Bay, I’ve created a gorgeous soft pink glam look for any occasion, be it Valentines or otherwise, using mainly Beauty Bay products.

My Everyday Travel Makeup – Winter City Break Edition

If you’ve read my previous blog post, you’ll know that recently I went to Krakow in Poland. I had a great time, but it was super cold and I packed light in terms of makeup. This look is what I wore pretty much the whole time I was there. Enjoy.

B A S E
L’Oreal True Match foundation in Vanilla (£9.99, Boots) mixed with Milani Conceal and Perfect 2 in 1 foundation in Warm Beige (£11, Beauty Bay) – 1 pump of each – applied all over the face using the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (£4.49, Boots).
Then taking MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20 (£18, MAC Cosmetics) under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and on the chin. Also using the RT’s sponge to blend.
Then on my unbranded duo-fibre brush I took L.A. Girl’s Pro Face powder in Creamy Ivory (£6, Beauty Bay) to set the face and Toffee (£6, Beauty Bay) to warm up the perimeters.

E Y E S
Using Tanya Burr’s eye shadow palette in Birthday Suit (£5.99, Superdrug), I took the shade Toast on my Zoeva Soft Definer brush (£9, Beauty Bay) and blended this shade all over the eye up to the brow.
Then taking the shade Soft Truffle, I took this on the Zoeva Smoky Shader brush (£9, Beauty Bay) under the eye, before blending is out using the Zoeva Soft Definer.
I then took the light shimmer shade Marzipan on my Zoeva Petit Crease brush (£9, Beauty Bay) and highlighted the inner corners of the eye as well as the brow bone.
To finish off the eyes I used  on both upper and lower lashes.

My Travel Makeup Bag – Winter City Break Edition

Travelling. I absolutely adore travelling, but when it comes down to packing for it, I made a very conscious decision that my makeup is not leaving my side. All my clothes can be lost or not with me for days, but a girl can’t live without her make up. So every time I go away, I always ensure I can fit all of my makeup into a 20×20 see-through makeup bag so I can take it on the plane with me and know it’s safe!

For my travels this month I went to Krakow in Poland for 4 nights. As it was very cold there (-10 degrees if you’re interested) and we’d be going on a lot of trips during the day time. I knew I didn’t need anything special. I simply wished to take make up I could transition from simple everyday to smokey eye at night.

So what did I take?

F A C E & B A S E
Before going away I’d tanned about 2 times to give me a nice glow. I took 2 foundations with me, one that matched me  with my tan along with a lighter one to ensure I’d be able to mix them and match my skin tone during the trip. I took my L.A Girl concealers to highlight and contour my face along with my MAC Pro Longwear concealer to ensure my blemishes and tired eyes would be hidden all day.

L’Oreal True Match foundation in Vanilla (£9.99, Boots)
Milani Conceal and Perfect 2 in 1 foundation in Warm Beige (£11, Beauty Bay)
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20 (£18, MAC Cosmetics)
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal in Natural & Toast (£5 each, Beauty Bay)

P O W D E R S
I didn’t want to bring too many options in terms of face powders, I knew I wouldn’t use them all. I bought my everyday L.A Girl powders to set my face and contour. Along with my trusty MAC Give me sun!, Mary Loumanizer highlight and my favourite goes with everything blush – which is also in a mini size (bonus) – Nars Orgasm.

L.A. Girl’s Pro Face powder in Creamy Ivory & Toffee (£6 each, Beauty Bay)
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Give Me Sun! (£24, MAC Cosmetics)
Nars Orgasm blush (£23, ASOS)
The Balm’s Mary Loumanizer (£20, Superdrug)

E Y E S
As mentioned, I knew I wasn’t going to be doing anything overly dramatic with my makeup during this trip. So all I took in terms of eye shadow was my Tanya Burr eye shadow quad in Birthday Suit. This is the perfect palette to transition from everyday to smoky eye at night. I also was able to use my darker face powders to create depth in the eyes if needed.
Alongside this I bought my trusty L’Oreal Miss Hippie mascara and two khol eyeliners, one in black and one in a purple based black for a bit of something different.

Tanya Burr eye shadow palette in Birthday Suit (£5.99, Superdrug)
L’Oreal Miss Hippie Waterproof mascara (£7.99, Boots)
Avon SuperShock Gel eyeliner pencil in Black (£6, AVON)
Zoeva Graphic Eye eyeliner in Rock ‘n’ Roll Bride (£7, Beauty Bay)

B R O W S
The day I went on my trip I used Wunderbrow (see post here) as this keeps my brows pretty much perfect for a couple of days. So all I took with me was Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade and a brow brush to keep them in check.

Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown (£15, Beauty Bay)

L I P S
I didn’t want anything bold but I wanted products that would stay. I took a nude pink and a brown nude liquid lip so I had a couple of options. I ensured to take a Soft Matte Lip Cream to keep my lips moisturised in the day time due to the cold weather.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi (£5.50, Boots)
Nyx Lip Lingerie in Lace Detail (£6.50, Boots)

B R U S H E S
I literally only took the brushes I knew I would use on the daily or I could multi-task with. There’s no need for contour brushes and five blending brushes when you’re away, simply a case of taking exactly what you know you can get away with.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (£4.49, Boots)
Unbranded Duo-Fibre brush
Zoeva Soft Definer brush (£9, Beauty Bay)
Zoeva Smoky Shader brush (£9, Beauty Bay)
Zoeva Petit Crease brush (£9, Beauty Bay)
Zoeva Brow Line brush (£8, Beauty Bay)
Spectrum Short Smudge Brush (£4, Beauty Bay)
Models Own blush brush from the 5 piece set (£10, ASOS)
Real Techniques Blush Brush (£9.99, Boots)
Morphe Fan brush from the 12 piece set (£12.50, Beauty Bay)

I hope this helps any of you taking any trips. Let me know where you’re going, I’d love to know!

Classic Smokey Eye Tutorial – Perfect for Any Occassion

There’s nothing more suitable for any occasion than a classic smokey eye. Using one palette, the Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour palette, I show you how to create this perfect look. The techniques used in this tutorial can also be used to create a warm smokey eye, a colourful smokey eye, basically whatever you desire. Enjoy!

Eyes
Note: when doing a smokey eye, I always start with eyes in case of any fallout.
I start by priming my eyes using MAC Soft Ochre paint pot (£16, MAC Cosmetics) blending it from brown bone to lash line with my fingers.

Then taking Lazarus from the Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour palette (£36, Debenhams) on the Zoeva Luxe Soft Definer brush*, I blended this primarily into the crease and slowly worked up to the brow bone.
I then took the shade Laetus on the same brush and sweeped this over the brow bone to brighten up under the brow.
I then took the Zoeva Smoky Shader brush* and took the shade Samuel onto the outer third of the eye and also along the crease, blending in the placement of the colour with the Zoeva Soft Definer.
To deepen this further, I took the shade Saleos in the same placement on the same brushes.

Then taking the shade Shax on the Real Techniques Detailer brush –from the Core Collection (£21.99, Boots), I created a deepness along my lash line and outer corner before blending everything together using the Zoeva Soft Definer. This is where you can create whatever shape you desire be it rounded, a cat eye or an extreme winged out look.
Once you’ve added this black shade, you can then touch up any colours you’ve used previously to create the depth you desire.

On the lower lash line I took the shade Saleos on the Zoeva Smoky Shader brush, connecting it with the upper eye. I then blending this out, you’ve guessed it, using the Zoeva Soft Definer.

Finally I used the Zoeva Graphic Eyes Rock n Roll Eyeliner (£7, Beauty Bay) in both my upper and lower waterline to complete the smokey look.

Mascara used is L’Oreal Miss Hippie Waterproof in Black (£7.99, Boots)

*From the Zoeva Classic Eye set (£38, Beauty Bay)

Brows
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Medium Brown (£15, Beauty Bay)
Using Brow Brush from Zoeva classic eye set – see eyes section.

Base
First taking my L.A. Girl Pro Conceal in Natural (£5, Beauty Bay) and applying this all across my nose and under my eyes and blending with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (£5.99, Boots)
If you aren’t aware of this concealing your nose train, please watch this >>>video<<< on Tati’s channel and this >>>video<<< on NikkieTutorials channel.
Then taking my Milani 2in1 Perfect and Conceal foundation in Warm Beige (£11, Beauty Bay) and applying this with the same sponge, all over the face.

Then taking L.A. Girl Pro Powder in Classic Ivory (£6, Beauty Bay) and setting the under eyes and high points of the face using the Real Techniques Contour Brush from the Core Collection – See eyes section for link.
Then taking the same L.A. Girl Pro Powder but in the shade Toffee (£6, Beauty Bay) on a large duo-fibre brush (sorry, no idea where it’s from) around the perimeters of the face to create shadow.

Face
Taking MAC’s Mineralise Skin Finish in Give Me Sun (£24, MAC Cosmetics) on the Model’s Own Blush brush from the 5 piece set (£9.99, Boots) and applying to bronze up the skin.
Then taking Make Up Geek’s Blush in Honeymoon ($12.99, Makeup Geek) on a Real Techniques Blush brush (£9.99, Boots) on the highpoints on the cheeks.
Finally for the face, taking The Balms Mary-Lou Loumanizer (£17.49, Superdrug) on the Morphe Fan Brush from the 12 piece set (£12.50, Beauty Bay). Apply this to your hearts content – also taking the Zoeva Petit Crease Brush* to add this for an inner eye highlight.

Setting

Lips
NYX Lip Lingerie in Lace Detail (£6.50, Boots)

Voila!

Hidden Gem: Rosie Huntington Whiteley for Marks and Sparks 

Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good mooch around Marks & Spencer’s, looking at ridiculously priced knickers and extravagant pajamas I could only imagine Cruella DeVille would wear. When it comes to the beauty section though, M&S trumps some aspects of other high street offerings – especially when it comes to their collection with Rosie Huntington Whiteley.

We all know, and most of us love Rosie. I’ve always admired her style, envied her big lips and recently seeing her on a few Lisa Eldridge videos >>>click here I insist<<<<, fell in love with her personality. When her collection of make up came out with M&S, I grabbed a few bits in it’s gorgeous vintage style Rose gold packaging. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to talk about it, but here I am finally.

We’ll start with the lipsticks. First off, the packaging with it’s magnetic close had me at hello. Then we come to the colour selection and formula. The lipsticks she’s created are on par with MAC. Not only do they smell extremely similar to MAC but they also have a similar longevity and feel to them, and from Rosie I wouldn’t expect anything less.

The two colours I have are;

  • Lady Rose – this is a gorgeous cool toned mid-rose shade with brown undertones (£14, M&S)
  • Nude Blush – a neutral peach shade with a hint of brown (£14, M&S)

Both shades are creamy to apply, leaving you with a stain matte finish. They have great pigment to them and although they have great longevity, when they do wear off they do so beautifully. I also find that if you pat or boot them slightly to the lip, you get left with a gorgeous matte finish which looks so natural. Perfect for any make up look be it glamorous or everyday.

As mentioned previously there’s a great shade range containing nudes, pinks and reds. All colours which you could really see Rosie wearing. It’s a collection that screams out that it’s hers, and if you were to buy a celebrity make up line, would you really expect anything that wasn’t something they would wear?

I would love to extend my range of lipsticks, maybe even delve into the glossy sticks in the summer time. So if you do have any other lip products from the range, please let me know your favourites.

The other product I have from Rosie is a cream blush in Camisole (£14, M&S). This is a gorgeous pink toned terracotta. Perfect used subtly for a hint of flush or dialed up against bronzed skin in the summer time.

The blush, although cream, is suitable to use over both cream and powdered products and gives an equally stunning look either way. When applied it can be done so subtly or built up to a higher pigment, allowing you to customise the look your going for.

The finish is a matte finish with a slight sheen. This ensures it looks natural on the skin and not too flat. Perfect for any occasion. The longevity as with any blush isn’t outstanding, but if you top it off with a similar toned powder blush it stays locked in.  Also I find that if reapplied throughout the day, it doesn’t cake up and continues to look equally stunning.

I’ve been really impressed with Rosie’s range from what I’ve tried so far and would definitely recommend it to any of you who enjoy a more natural look of make up, equally to those who enjoy to glam themselves up. It really is a versatile range for everyone from young to old. If you can get your hands on some, do it immediately.

Love, always.

Wunderbrow – The Only Thing Your Brows Will Ever Need

Throw away all brows products you’ve ever owned and loved, the ones you’ve desired – stop thinking about them. All you ever need is right here – WUNDERBROW.

This product has actually changed my brow game and I’m shook. Anastasia Beverly Hills is all I’ve ever know, and I’ve been very happy with the products from the get go. I’ve never felt the need to try other products as I was very happy with my brow game. However, the more and more blog posts I read and videos I watched containing Wunderbrow reviews. The more and more curious I got, to the point that when I saw it for sale in my local Boots (£19.95, Boots), no questions needed to be asked. It was in my basket before I knew it.

Now, first thing to note is that the colour selection isn’t the best. The colour options are blonde, auburn, brunette and brown/black. I, as I’m sure you’re all aware, am a blondie, and I had to get the brown/black option. I found that the blonde was very light, and the auburn and brunette shades are very warm in their shades. If you have warm brows this will be great, but if you don’t and you don’t have fair hair, the only option available to you is brown/black.

I was super excited to try this as it claims to give you brows that last, until you take them off. It’s kind of like a semi permanent brow – exciting huh? Brows is always the make up which takes me the longest and the most frustrated trying to ensure they look a little bit like sisters and not distant cousins. The thought of not having to go through that everyday is really what sold this product to me.

When you first open Wunderbrow it looks like a lipgloss applicator which took me by surprise. The first time I applied it, I used this applicator, carefully putting it on my brows and using the spoolie that comes with it to comb the product through. I think I may have put a little too much on, as it soon started to feel stiff on the brows, which wasn’t the nicest feeling.

The best way I’ve found to now apply this, is by using my Zoeva Brow Brush (£8, Beauty Bay)to apply the product, the same way I usually would my Anastasia Dip Brow and using the spoolie after each application, comb through to ensure it coats all the brow hairs and doesn’t clump up in any areas.

Wow, this product makes your brows so pristine along with ensuring they look natural. I don’t know how it does it, but it’s amazing.

As the packaging say, this products longevity is really something else. I use oils to take off my make up every night, and admittedly, this probably takes the product off faster than if you were to just use a normal cleanser. However, I find that if I don’t actually rub the oils directly across the brows, the product stays pretty much as I applied it. Which is amazing!

On day two, with my brows pretty much as I left them, I simply apply a little bit of the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade (£15, Beauty Bay) where there’s any gaps that need filling and go about my day. I then completely cleanse my face and the next day start with applying my Wunderbrow.

This product has completed changed my brow game, it makes them look naturally pristine alongside saving me a fair few minutes in the morning. It also allows me to look a little bit put together when I don’t have any make up on. I absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a wonder-brow product, see what I did there?

Have any of you tried it? What are your thoughts?
