2016 Favourites

2016 Favourites Astral Original Face and Body Moisturiser* The first product to make it into my 2016 favourites is Astral Original Face and Body Moisturiser. This is a product that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with. If you’re someone with very dry skin, seriously I urge you to try this. Astral Cream is basically a thick moisturiser. It is very affordable yet extremely effective. I use the cream both morning and night and I’ve definitely noticed a huge difference in my skin. My skin is much softer, smoother and my dry areas have improved fantastically. I’m not the…

December 2016 Favourites

December 2016 Favourites Affordable Oval Makeup Brushes The first products to make it into my December 2016 favourites are two oval makeup brushes that I purchased as part of a set on AliExpress. These oval “toothbrush” style brushes have been everywhere recently. Many brands seem to be creating copies of the famous and expensive Artis brushes and these brushes definitely fit into that category. Now I’ll be honest when I first saw these brushes I thought it was just another trend. I didn’t think the brushes would be that great. However, I did order myself a set of five brushes…

The 12 Piece Professional Makeup Brush Set That Cost Me Just £3.00

The 12 Piece Professional Makeup Brush Set That Cost Me Just £3.00 If there’s one thing I like to save money on it is makeup brushes. I buy a lot of my brushes from AliExpress and to be honest they’ve always been perfect quality. Because many of the brushes come direct from the manufacturers it means that prices are super low. However, most manufacturers are in China which means that the brushes can take a little while to arrive. Personally, this isn’t something that bothers me but I know some people find this frustrating. Some of my favourite AliExpress brush…

November 2016 Favourites

November 2016 Favourites W7 Hollywood Bronze and Glow The W7 Hollywood Bronze and Glow is a possible Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Bronze and Glow dupe. I say possible as I’ve never actually tried the pricey product. However, judging off appearance alone the two products look really rather similar. Anyway, this little affordable duo contains a warm brown shade bronzer that provides the skin with a beautiful sheen. The bronzer isn’t strongly pigmented but this is something I actually like. As I’m really quite pale I often find bronzers can make me look dirty which causes me to apply them with extreme caution.…

5 Face Brushes I Recommend Checking Out

5 Face Brushes I Recommend Checking Out Veil Powder Brush* The first of the face brushes that I recommend is the Veil Powder Brush. This fluffy powder brush is made up of a black handle, silver ferrule and eye-catching red hairs. The brush is ideal for applying a dusting of powder to the face for a very natural finish. I personally like to use this brush when setting my full coverage concealer but it is great for also applying bronzer to the body. One thing to be aware of is that this brush is not dense. That being said that brush is…

Beauty Bargain: Super Soft Sigma Brush Dupes For Under £5

Beauty Bargain: Super Soft Sigma Brush Dupes For Under £5 If you read my blog regularly then you’ll know that I love a good beauty bargain. When it comes to bargain makeup brushes I always check out AliExpress. AliExpress is basically a website where you can buy products directly from manufacturers. The majority of the manufacturers are based in China which means that products are super cheap. I’ve bought tonnes of things from the site but makeup brushes are definitely my favourite thing to buy. Not long back I purchased some MAC Eyeshadow Brush Dupes. I also purchased some Real Techniques…
