IMG_20170719_112522_598.jpg

Hi Guys,  Hope everyone is having fab week.

I have an unboxing to share with you and I must say that yet again Look Incredible have blown me away.  I’m so pleased with the products and looking forward to using them.

First up is…

Too Faced – Love Flush Blush – Funfetti. £30.  This is the cutest blusher I have ever seen.  It is a long-wear formula which lasts upto 16 hours.  Highly pigmented and buttery. Sounds fantastic.

 

Dior – Diorific Mat – 504 Magique. £29.50  Such a stunning red perfect for summer.  It’s weightless and long-wearing with a powdery matte finish which continuously moisturises lips without drying them out. (Limited Edition)

 

Utan & Tone – Coconut Tanning Water. £17.99  This is for the face and can also be used as a primer and setting spray. Infused with real coconut and vitamins, a light weight refreshing mist that develops into a sun-kissed tan in 4-6 hours.   It smells gorgeous too.

 

Bareminerals – Blemish Remedy Prep Gel. £22 

This light weight gel glides on effortlessly and immediately dries to an invisible matte finish.  Formulated with Aspen Bark, Tea Tree Oil and a peptide complex. I’ve got high hopes for this primer and hoping it helps with my skin.

 

First impressions I’m  very happy with the products This month and I’m looking forward to trying them all. The products in this months deluxe box are £99.49 so definitely a great bargain.

If you love the products in this months box and would like to get one you can still order them until the end of the month if they’re still in stock.

You can purchase it as a one-off from their shop or subscribe and if you want to subscribe but don’t have the budget to get it each month if you email them they will work it out for you to do that.  How fab is that? I’ve never known any other subscription service do that from tv subs to magazine subs and box subscriptions.

Also don’t forget they also sell a cheaper beauty box for £25 per month. I don’t get it each month now due to having to save my money for my daughters 13th birthday next month. Anyway they have always been great boxes from my experience,  You will get 5 full size products with a value £70+ and brands have included, Nails Inc, Estee Lauder, Bareminerals, Stila and Nars plus many more.

Look Incredible

All products are also available in the Look Incredible shop.

Hope you have a fab day and weekend. Thanks for checking out my unboxing post.

If you have any suggestions for me let me know in the comments.

Bye for now ❤

Fantastic Opportunity

Itsy Nails

London

Last week I came across a Instagram post on ‘Itsy Nails London’ calling for bloggers in the UK, So I sent them a DM and I was shocked to get a reply telling ms they’re going to send me some samples and asking for my address.  I never thought that they’d want me. So I was over the moon. I have seen loads of posts like this on Instagram but always thought that they would want bloggers with thousands of followers, I’ve been tagging others in the post so they can contact the brands. So now I don’t know why I was worried and my advice is if you see an opportunity like that go for it what’s the worst that can happen. Go for it, ‘Seize the day’.

Friday I received my parcel and 4 absolutely gorgeous DuraPro Gel Effect nail polishes as shown in the pic. Also with the cutest little bag. So I will be posting a review once ive tried all the stunning polishes.  I will also post the swatches with the review.

Birchbox Review February 2017

BirchBox Feb 2017 Review

IMG_20170228_125745

Russet Foliage  Inspired by changing seasons

So even though it’s now april i thought id share my February Birchbox review.

Birchbox is another monthly subscription box, Each month you’ll recieve 5 beauty products some full-size some more of a travel size which are chosen to suit your beauty profile. It costs £10 plus £2.95 P&P you can cancel at anytime no commitment, or you can choose to subscribe for 6 months which is £60 plus P&P each month, or yearly for £100 plus P&P, this option gives you 2 free boxes

This was the 1st birchbox i had received and wow i loved it,  I’m very impressed with Birchbox so pleased i subscribed.

February Birchbox did a collab with the fantastic British stationary company Papier  and they designed two boxes,  they were both beautiful and we were able to choose the box we wanted i chose the red box as at the time we had red decor in our bedroom. The other box was green ill share a picture at the end.

Inside this months box was 5 fantastic items that i love and use regularly so here’s what was in my box.

1. Nuxe,  Huile Prodigieuse   With six essential oils and vitamin E, Use this multi-purpose oil to hydrate and restore body, face and your hair just by smoothing a few drops over your face, body or dry hair.

I absolutely love this oil,  I didn’t think id like it but its fantastic i have a lot of dry skin due to eczema and psoriasis and also my medication and it was only a few days of use and i noticed how different my skin was, i didn’t have as much dryness and it didn’t irritate my sensitive skin.   I definitely recommend this oil its part of my skin care routine now also you don’t need to use a lot,  i hold my finger over the bottle and just shake it and use the oil that goes onto my finger,   unlike my daughter who poured it into her hand.

2.  Keeome, Hydration Mask Therapy,  Has a hydrating blend of vitamins and mulberry extracts that sink straight into tired skin,  This mask revitalises the skin in just a few minutes. This was a single mask.

20170228_124920

I really liked this mask,  it really is a lovely treat for your skin and just what i needed. I did have to put a towel all around me (I wasn’t able to move) The sheet was dripping all over and was absolutely soaking wet.  I did remove loads of excess, The mask really softened and smoothed out my skin and made my face feel fab,  The excess i rubbed off i used on my neck.  It’s definitely a treat and if it wasn’t so expensive for my budget id be buying more.  They’re RRP £66 for 6.   If your subscribed to Birchbox they’re just £29 for 6 for a limited time, that’s a better price and a lot more affordable for me.

3.  Beaver Professional, Daily Moisture Conditioning Spray. This detangles and nourishes frazzled tired hair, with a herbal blend and nutrient rich formula it injects moisture into the hair. Use it on damp hair and style.

20170228_124846

I don’t use this very often but thats due to my scalp im not able to,  i have used it on my daughters hair and it gave her highlighted hair a lovely shine.

4. Pop Beauty,  Bright Up Your Life Eyeshadow Trio In Champagne. These silky shades are the perfect shades to create a gorgeous smokey eye oor even a pretty natural look.

IMG_20170228_125946

These eye shadows are really pretty the lightest shade doesn’t show too well on my pale skin but works over primer or concealer to stop creasing, I was able to create a very pretty smokey eye with these shades and also a very natural look by just using the lighter two shades,  they blend well and perfect for popping in your overnight bag or even just your handbag along with the spectrum brush you can go from day to night just by smoking the eye.

5.  Spectrum Collections,  Marbleous C06 Tulip Eye Contour Brush.

IMG_20170228_130010

This is my favourite item in the box,  I absoloutly love this brush its super soft,  The bristles are packed in nicely and you can do all of youre eyeshadow with this one brush,  Its great with packing the colour on and makes blending really easy.  Im also in love with the white and rose gold.  Im saving up for the full set because theyre fantastic.  these are the best brushes ive ever used and they don’t make my skin sore like the Rio Professional set i had due to my fibro my skin gets sore really easy and so im down to 4 brushes now. My other 3 are No7 Brushes.   If i wasn’t saving to have adaptions to my car then id already have a set.

Free Gift is Smith & Cults The Shinning Lip Lacquer

IMG_20170301_220115_218This is a gorgeous colour i really like it,  it makes your lips look like ice and the colour is very nude perfect for day and a subtle lip at night with a bold eye.  I don’t find it sticky either its also lovely over a matte lippy if you want to give it a shine.

Overall this box is definitely a hit,  I couldn’t be happier and ive discovered products i didn’t know about and the best brush ive ever used.

My 1st Beauty Box Review. Look Incredible February Edition 2017

Look Incredible February Edition 2017

img_20170222_035522_402

So here’s my first  beauty box,  I decided as im new to the awesome beauty world and didnt know much about it anymore id buy a subscription beautybox.

Look incredible really appealed to me after seeing reviews.

Each month costs £18.99 plus £2.50 p&p. This beautybox sets itself apart from a lot of the others as it has 5 full size items each month from brands you can find on the high street plus up and coming brands.

Everyone gets the same in their boxes unless you choose the deluxe box which is £35.00 which has 5 full size products in from high end brands like mac and Nars etc.

1. Studio10 Brow Lift Perfecting £22.00 Great for a natural looking brow, it is double ended. Ash colour which mimics hair the colour adjusts depending on how hard you press and how much you build it up. The opposite end is a creamy natural skin coloured highlighter to define and sharpen the brows.

IMG_20170216_113731

It’s the first time id ever had an eyebrow pencil before, i was nervous about using it but i was really happy with the way it applies.  If you use it lightly it works really well with light brows like mine where you cant even see half.  I managed to get a good first brow, and was pleased with myself. It is great because the more pressure you use the darker it applies. Very nice start to the box.

2. Korres Mango butter lipstick £9.99  Treat your lips to a hint of colour, buttery soft and incredibly moisturising creating a high shine but sheer look. it hydrates the lips even in the harshest weather.

IMG_20170216_113624

This is a lovely sheer lipstick which is can be subtle if you prefer a natural look with no makeup,  it’s very hydrating and leaves your lips feeling lovely and soft while looking great.

3. Nails Inc westbourne park NailKail £15.00  NailKale is the is the first nail care range formulated with anti-oxidant kale which nourishes, protects and strengthens. Also includes nails Inc’s regenerating complex which boosts the production of keratin for harder, stronger and healthy nails.

20170216_105236

I fell in love with it as soon as i saw it. I’ve never bought nail polish costing more than £10 before and i could never get my nails to look good without streaks and smudges.  But i applied this without a single streak or smudge mark. Even using my left hand and the fact that my hands shake a lot It’s a fantastic polish that results in professional looking nails. Very very happy and my favorite nail polish now.

4. Fresh Face Essence With Green Coffee £20.00 Revitalising and hydrating with antioxidant rich green coffee which shields and rejuvenates skin cells. Its brightening micros spheres smooth and tone the skin also forms a protective micro network on the surface of the skin to prevent dehydration.

20170406_175814

This is a fantastic product I really love how it leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean,  i have really sensitive skin and suffer with psoriasis and eczema and so i have a lot of dry flakey skin on my face.  I have been using Soap and Glory scrub which is great for removing all the dead dry flaky skin but it can leave my skin sore. Now I’ve included this into my skin care routine i don’t need to use the scrub as often.  (I’ll write a post about how I use the scrub) My favourite time to use this is straight after using wipes to remove my makeup this helps to sooth my skin and help it feel moisturised.

5. Revealed Smokey Eyeshadow Palette £20.00  This smokey palette features 20 smoldering eyeshadows to create a stunning smokey eye.

IMG_20170216_113458

This gorgeous smokey palette has 20 shades all of which are very pigmented and you can go for a smokey look or a nude look using the natural shades, they blend really well making it easy to create the look you want. You can easily achieve lots of stunning looks. Its a favourite of mine.

Overall im very happy with this box and i call it a success.  I really love that its introduced me to brands i didn’t know and also products that i probably wouldn’t have bought at that price without trying it myself. I would definitely buy them now knowing that they’re great quality and also don’t affect my skin.

The value of the products together is £86.99  definitely a great bargain.

Great work Look Incredible
