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!

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.
Retails at: £6.95
Trialled for: 1 month

While shopping in Mcarthur Glen I managed to pick up an Ultraflesh blusher. I’ve heard good things about their products in the past so I was excited to be finally able to try a product of theirs.
I picked up a rose gold blusher, which is out of my comfort zone and a colour I want to try and wear. So basically this was a kill two birds with one stone moment for me! The colour didn’t look too bright and just had enough of a shimmering glow to it that didn’t look too much for me to handle.
I paid £4.99 for this, but it does retail for around $30.

So I took the plunge and bought some Poundland makeup. I’ve seen it on various media websites with mixed and good reviews and while I was in town I decided to pick some products that I would use in my everyday looks.
I picked up a few but today I decided to review a nude lip liner, which I know would be a tough test as I do not suit nude lips at all, as my lips are very red without product on, and the liquid liner because I’m a liquid liner hoarder.
Both were priced at £1 per item, and the same goes for the whole line of products.
Time Trialed: 3 weeks.

After being invited along to the Lauder blogger’s event I was sent some Michael Kors makeup to test and review for my blog. This has taken a little longer to review as I have never tried out Kors products and I wanted to get a fuller view of how their products last on the skin, and I’m also at the end of my 1st year Art university course so I have been extremely busy!
I was randomly sent a bronzer, two nail polishes, a lipstick, fragrance, and lipgloss to try!
Each collection is split into three, for a day time look, mid day, and evening. I was sent a selection of each collection!
Time trialed = 1 Month

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.

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.
