If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know that I was invited to a Benefit Cosmetics event on 27th March in Brighton. I was so excited when I received the email as I love Benefit Cosmetics so a chance to go along to an event of theirs was a bit of a dream come true. The invite promised talks from the lovely Lola Hoad and Tashie Tinks, as well as lots of bubbles and an appearance by the gorgeous BrowMobile… and it certainly didn’t disappoint! I didn’t know anybody else going to the event but I do find this forces you to talk to people and I met some really lovely girls. (I did also realise afterwards that I already followed a few of the people I saw around but didn’t chat to #oops)
I love Benefit, you love Benefit, everyone loves Benefit… so when I got the Benefit Most Wanted Mascara Line-up set for Christmas (how long ago was that?!) I was over the moon. I’d used the BADgal lash before and had heard amazing things about Roller Lash so I was really excited to try this out. What I was really interested in though was being able to directly compare all 3 of their mascaras against each other… so without any more further-ado…
Ever since I was young I have adored Chanel. The effortless timeless chic nature associated with the brand is something I find quite magical and for years I have wished for some Chanel in my life. It all started with a lipstick when I was a teenager that I bought in duty free – I don’t think I’d ever felt so grown up. The legacy attached to the classic Chanel N°5; the beautiful bottle, the history made it almost irresistible to me in the past. However, the smell itself just wasn’t for me. So, when Chanel announced last year that they were going to be releasing a new version of the perfume, with a lighter airier feel for a younger and more modern audience I couldn’t contain my excitement.
Today’s post is basically just me raving about how much I love the Zoella Hungry Hands hand cream. The minute I saw Zoella had released a GINGERBREAD scented hand cream I just knew this would be a festive must. Gingerbread has got to be one of my absolute favourite things about this time of year and the idea of having my hands smell of it was too much to resist.
There’s nothing quite like a mini LUSH haul at Christmas time! In today’s post I’m going to round up my top 5 picks this festive season and I’m not going to lie, there may be a bit of a pink theme going on!
So, first off I want to know why nobody told me about this before?! Turns out Feel Unique have a service where you can pick 5 sample items and get them delivered to your door for just a £3.95 shipping and handling fee! It’s also called Pick’n’Mix which is a really adorable name. I love trying out a new product and some of the samples they have on here are amazing. You can order your samples once a month and if you decide to later buy a full size product, you can use your £3.95 towards it. Another great thing about this is that the products seem to regularly change, as it took me a few weeks of checking back before I finally placed my first order, by which time new products had emerged. This will be great for trying out different products month to month! Anyway, I thought I’d write a little review of the products I picked.
A couple if months back I was given a tube of Dr.PAWPAW, a multipurpose soothing balm that can be used for lips, skin, hair and beauty finishing, cuticles and nails. A 25ml tube retails at £6.95 and is made in the UK from a mixture of natural ingredients including (obviously) paw paw. It promises a lot and I was a little skeptial at first, but as I’m always trying to decrease the amount of stuff I carry around in my handbag, I thought I’d give it a go.
