Beauty Empties, Hits & Misses

Empties Close Up 3 June 2018

It feels like forever and a day since I’ve gathered all my empties in one place, I started to remember why, the clutter!  Hence this post, I felt the need to declutter!  It’s been quite cathartic to finish up some of these products, they seem to have been lurking for far too long.

I’ve recently had to pop up to London a lot lately for meetings, they’re a mix of super professional as well as creative sessions.  This has got me wearing makeup again! Hooray!  Although it also means, that I’m dashing out the door to catch a train, so I’ve found myself with a “Go-To” look.  I […]

Ride or Die Tag

Ride or Die Cover

I was tagged by Emma from Emma Inks to do this tag!  Basically it is all about makeup that you couldn’t do without, or if you could only have these pieces, what would they be.  Same thing really! So I thought it would be a fun tag to do for the first one in October! […]

Rimmel The Only One

I picked up a few of the Rimmel The Only One* (we’ll not talk about the name….) lipsticks at the end of last year (haul post) and I’ve been giving them a thorough testing.  I’ve heard these raved about, so of course I had to see for myself!  I showed serious restraint and only picked up […]

Empties #6 The Big Cull

More Makeup Empties

As you can probably see, I’ve had a bit of a clear out.  I’d a lot of makeup I was just hoarding without actually using it, alongside lots of  nail polishes that had gone a bit funny.   So as that’s the case, let’s just get stuck in.  I’ve quite a few Barry M nail […]

2015 Beauty Favourites!

2015 Beauty Favourites

It has taken me a while to whittle down my favourites from 2015.  I wanted to pick products that really stood out in 2015, which is hard when you have lots of products that you love.  I think I’ve done pretty well and narrowed it all the way down to 10!  So let us get […]

Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara

I spotted the Rimmel Wonder Full Wake Me Up* mascara this in boots the other week and thought it looked interesting, plus I’d not bought a mascara in a while.   This was retailing for £7.99 so not too bad cost wise.  So first off the bat, it has nice packaging, which I think has […]
