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.
Its always a struggle to get certain gifts however this year I’ve found that holiday sets are packed full of products to try, which is perfect after not being able to keep up with new launches from brands.
Read on to find out what I’ve found at my local Boots store and take some inspiration for gifting!
I’m not a fan of silicone based primers, however I thought I would give this a try as I received it as part of a try me bag through my work.
I’ve never got on with silicone primers, mainly as it clogs my pores resulting in breakouts, slides my makeup around in oily places and just makes my makeup sit very poorly. However, I love trying things and being proved wrong and finding new things to use.
This primer retails for £32 for 30ml, comes in a glass bottle with gold lid which sits very nicely next to other YSL products.
I’ve been having a massive makeup clear out during lockdown and have donated or given away items I haven’t used or gently used. My collection had a lot of nudes or same colour stories so it’s time to revamp and add additional colours and products I don’t have.
I realized I lacked green eyeshadows, and for my complexion and eye colour I adore greens, especially mixed with golds and plums. I had a quick browse in Superdrug and found this cute palette for just £5, and having some Revolution / I heart Revolution makeup previously I picked it up.
This is the lucky Palette from their Heartbreaker line, which consists of tones of green and pops of colour which complement each other.
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.

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!
I’ve vowed that this year I am going to crack on with getting my skin in tip top condition, and be a little bit less bias to the stuff I do use (mainly Pixi and Body Shop) and splash out on skincare in all shapes forms and sizes.
Now going into this I do have quite sensitive skin around my cheeks, nose areas and middle forehead. If the wrong products touch these areas I am left with burns and sore red irritated skin. So I am cautious however I am cracking on with it to see what else is out there because we won’t know unless we try will we?!
I will be doing monthly checkins of the products I use, if I’ve stuck to it, and if I’ve seen an improvement with what I’m using.
I was very lucky to be invited to Cardiff Debenhams Blogger event where we were treated to a look at some new launches from 4 premium beauty brands. The night would include a rotation of counters where we learnt about skincare, base tips and tricks, colour and getting the perfect brows and liner.
The brands included in this night were Estee Lauder, Dior, Urban Decay and Yves Saint Laurent Beauty.
I was invited to attend Cardiff Lush’s Christmas Blogger event to see what was instore for their Christmas line and have a chance to get some information about the new products.
The night didn’t consist of demos and group activities like the last event as the products were mainly extensions of their current products, but it was still fun to have a relaxed night of shopping and seeing old and new faces.
