Y2K Fashion With Rinsta

I was contacted by Fashion Website Rinsta who specialise in Y2K, E-girl and overall cute fashion to pick some items and let you all know how their clothes are!

I went for a selection of clothes that ranged from cute and girly to more of my style to get an overall look at their range. They’ve also kindly given me two discount codes to use on their website which are:

RIN15 for 15% off

RIN20 for 20% off if you order over $65 worth of items!

I used the Huji app to take these photos to get that disposable camera vibe to match the clothes.

Read on to see how I got on and if you like anything feel free to order! (Discount code supplied is not an affiliate link.)

Affordable Holiday Beauty Gifts 2021

After a rather chaotic past 2 years, it’s safe to say this Holiday we will be treating our loved ones a little bit more, and here are some of my favourite sets £30 and under available at beauty retailers in the UK.

Read on to find out what I’ve found at my local Boots store and take some inspiration for gifting!

L’oreal Colorista Washout Yellow Neon review

I dye my hair, a lot, if you hadn’t noticed by now! Growing up with a mother as a hairdresser, from the age of 15 have always had some sort of colour in my hair. It is kind of like a security blanket, but I don’t feel myself if my hair is brown or blonde, it has to have some splash of colour in it!
I found the Colorista Yellow Washout on an end of line clearance and was skeptical. Some yellows I have had in the past such as Crazy Colour, W7 or Directions didn’t come out very yellow, even on the lightest parts of my hair. I initially got this colour to mix it in with reds and oranges but thought why not try it on its own to create my ombre hair.

I think I paid £3 for this, but normal Colorista products retail for around £7.

Kat Von D Dagger Liner Review

During an intimate event with Kat Von D I was kindly gifted their Dagger Liner to try out, which is a similar format to the Tattoo Liner but t an angle. I did not get on with the Tattoo Liner originally due to the applicator being a little chunky for me to apply thin lines with, so I was excited to see if this applicator worked better for me. The formula is very similar to the Tattoo Liner, so if you are a fan favourite of this cult product or like me, longed for something thinner, this might be for you!


It retails for £17 and is the same colour, Trooper Black, as the Tattoo Liner.
Read on to see how I got on with the liner!

Lets Talk: Acids

Acids are widely talked about recently and are O K A Y for your skin. I’m going to try my best for you all to at the end of this hopefully understand acids and maybe try one out for yourself without being scared of the word acid and the thought of it going on your face. They all have different purposes for each skin type, texture, look, and overall condition of how your skin looks and could be your answer for a concern you have.

If you think about it, we use acidic products every day and even eat them. Do you think twice about eating an orange? That’s Citric Acid, a great source of Vitamin C.

They come in different strengths, formulations, prices and textures and I will be honest, all are trial and error as with all skincare items. I will try and break it down as simply as I can from what I have learned over time while working with these products and what ones could suit you best. With any skincare it’s about maintaining a routine to see a difference.

I have studied makeup and skincare to a professional level, however please do your own further research and only use this as a guideline as the majority of my research has been done through my own studies while gently touching upon these acids in my studies in class.

Revisited: NYX Lip Lingerie

I’ve recently been using up some old bits of makeup and revisiting some cult classics I have purchased from the influence of others or just from curiosity. Remember when everyone went crazy over Nyx Lip Lingerie? When no one knew how to pronounce lingerie, or knew it was a french word for underwear? How they were a dead ringer for some Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits, and everyone would suck shot glasses to get big, voluptuous lips? Today, we are revisiting that, minus triple the size lips or getting bruises from shot glasses.

You can still purchase these for £7!
Read on to see why everyone wanted these lipsticks and hear my thoughts!

Spectrum Fresh F.A.C.E Brush Set Review

While at the Spectrum press event I was kindly given a set of Fresh F.A.C.E brushes to try out. I’ve followed Spectrum brushes for a long time and knowing they are a Welsh company does make me pay more attention to who they are.
They are a cult favourite for brushes due to their bold colourful look and professional finish. I’ve been fairly impressed with how much these four brushes can change your look up!

 

Brushes are vegan and cruelty free. While at the press event they stressed that using cruelty free products along with their brushes was a huge priority for them.

Read on to see how I created a full face with the 4 brushes in this set.

Here are my predictions for the start to a fresher makeup look for Spring 2017.
