Branching out to appeal to new customers, Funko announced that they are collaborating with Disney to create a Villain inspired collection with a twist. Not the usual Funko figurines to be seen here, but a collectible makeup palette stylized in the famous style 3D rendering of the selected villain head. Confirmed so far are 4 Villains. Read more to see what Villains are part of this collaboration and to take a deeper look into the collection.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
During October I was kindly sent a Stylfile Gel Polish Remover kit to try at home. Being a big Apprentice fan myself and a Stylfile fan, I was excited to try the remover kit myself and see how easy it is to remove my gels a different way than using foils.
The problem with using foils is they can be tricky to apply and hold on the nail securely. This is where inventor Tom Pellereau saw a gap in the market and created this simple way to remove them. He discovered that 52% of women believe that gel polish damages the nail. I would be in this 52% if I were voting in this poll, but according to Tom this is down to poor removal.
I am up for a challenge to see how easy it is to remove, and if my nails feel damaged and brittle after removal. 2 weeks into my gel nails being applied it is time to remove them using the kit and reapply some fresh colours. I have used a normal nail polish and a glittery one, to see if the remover two popular gel nail types.
The kit retails for £16.99 which has everything needed to remove your gels.
Last week I was invited along to see Pixi’s new Holiday collection at the St Davids Hotel in Cardiff Bay. I’ve always loved Pixi products and I haven’t had the chance to go to London recently to see what’s new so I was excited to see Amanda for a catch up and what was new for this season.
Products from the collection range from £12 and go up to £28, which include pigments, a new Ultimate Beauty Kit and a pack of eyeliners with limited edition colours. There’s also a new skincare product which I’m very excited to try!
Read on to see what products are available this season. Full reviews will follow, but here is a short summary of what products you can find!
Last month I entered a Twitter contest run by @BeautyEssUK and surprisingly won a Shadow Switch, which is a product that lets you change your eye shadow or powder colour quickly and effectively if you’re limited to a few brushes doing a look with lots of shadow colours. I was a bit sceptical I must admit because I didn’t understand how it would work.
When I received it the look of the product wasn’t what I expected at all. With the Shadow Switch there is no need to use any brush cleaner or wet products, you swirl and go. This intriguing product has definitely revolutionised how I use my brushes.
This nifty little product retails for £5.99 and you can get it on Amazon.
I’m not overly keen on baths but when I do have a relax I like to have a really bubbly bath. I’m more impressed at how my bath bubbles up than a fizzing bath bomb. Baths are supposed to be bubbly!
I was immediately drawn to the smell of The Comforter because it reminded me of my beloved Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly which has sadly become discontinued. It’s also a supersized Bubble Bar which means more bubble for my buck.
Price: £4.95 each, for 2 uses.
