Spectrum Marbleous brush launch event

Last week I was invited to attend Spectrum brushes press event for their new collection of marble brushes.

This cruelty free brush brand is Barry born and bred and know their stuff when it comes to brushes that set themselves apart from the rest.

To launch the new whopping 35 piece set, named the Holy Grail set, we were treated to an evening of pampering from Nails Inc, buffet from local veggie and vegan cafe Milgis, and cocktails and bubbles from Candy Kittens and Dirty Martini.

Read on to see what went on in this special evening!

Spring 2017 Trends And Predictions

With Spring literally just arriving, I’m eager to see what the trends will be for this season. I’m praying and hoping we ditch the matte lip, foundation and heavy brows and move on from the perfected Kylie Jenner-esque look.

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

W7 Porefection! Review

I kindly received a box of W7 goodies to try and throughout the month I’ll be writing how I got on with the products and how they slotted into my usual routine. The one I was most concerned about switching in my routine was the primer. I’m a big fan of my Iman Time Control primer, Nyx Angel Veil and Nyx Primer spray and it is hard for me to change my mind when I’m happy with something in my routine. Whenever I hear the word “Pore” in a primer, I do cringe. Silicone based primers rarely sit on my skin and I find that any primer that tries to be a dupe of Benefit’s Porefessional slides off my skin. However I’m always up for trying new things so I gave it a go.

No 7 Limited Edition Peony Petals Blush Palette Review!

I thought I would try something different so I picked up this lovely blusher in Boots. I usually go for matte blushers and add a highlight myself as I’d rather a flush of colour than a sheen wash.

It’s gorgeously pressed with embossed flower petals, with a shimmery white highlight, shimmery peach and a glowing lilac colour in the center.



Price: £12

L’Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mascara Violet Review!

I was a bit skeptical about trying a new mascara but I did need a new every day mascara, as personally my usual mascara is a little too full volume for every day wear. I decided to try the new L’oreal Miss Manga Mascara in Violet for a change, and I got it at the introductory price of £5.99.


                     “Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara creates bold volume 

                         with L’Oreal Paris’ first 360° flexible cone shaped brush that amplifies upper lashes and reveals lower lashes.”


With it’s interesting brush shape and advertisement I grabbed one to try.


Price: £5.99 (£8.99 RRP)

Time trialed: 4 weeks.

YSL Yves Saint Laurent, Gloss Volupte Lip Gloss Review!

The new YSL Gloss Volupte lip gloss line is one word; Stunning. The packaging, feel, sent and lasting colour is amazing.

I picked up the shade 209 Smoking at work while waiting for a friend to purchase a lip gloss herself, this was an impulse buy but it is one that certainly is worth the money.

The idea with 3 of the lip glosses are to use them as topcoats to change the look of your lips or lipstick, the others in the collection you can use as stand alone lip glosses with gold shimmers or use them to enhance your lipsticks.

There are 23 shades in the collection.



Price: RRP £21.


Time Trailed: 2 days, one while out in the night and throughout the following day.
