Derma rolling…

So this device and technique has been around a while now and I’ve finally bit the bullet and jumped on the bandwagon!

I was gifted this tool from Swiss clinic and opted for the 0.2mm needle to ease myself in as I’ve heard the bigger the needle the more painful it can be and I’m a bit of a wimp!

I use mine twice a day as instructed in the box and I go over the areas 4 times in multiple directions and I have to say, I’ve seen a difference! I suffer from adult acne and since using this my breakouts have reduced and my scarring is fading which is awesome and does wonders for my confidence!

The idea of this is to create small pin pricks in the skin to allow the blood to flow and encourage collagen to be produced, hello anti ageing, and also to help you absorb skincare deeper and for it to be more effective and I’m all for that! And I feel I’m seeing the benefits! Yes I was sent this via brandbassador but these opinions are all my own and I’m so happy I’ve tried this and will keep using it and keep seeing the results.

I have a 20% off discount code for anyone who wants to try this: SWISSCLINIC94X

Conceal and define

Now I know we are barely into January but already a very exciting piece of makeup has been launched. It is from my favs make up revolution and it’s the conceal and define full coverage concealer and contour.

They have bought out a large range for all skin colours, and they have shades perfect for concealing and contouring. They have been hotly anticipated and once available I was eager to check them out for myself in my local Superdrug.

After seeing the swatches online I thought I would be a c5 or c6 and wanted to look for a contouring shade. After swatching these for myself I went for c5 for concealing and a c14 for my contour shade.

I used these the next day as I was so excited and I have to say….I was super impressed! Nice and thick…hence the great coverage and they blended out really well. I don’t usually suffer with creasing under my eye so that wasn’t an issue for me, and as they were so pigmented I didn’t need a lot for concealer or contour so these amazingly priced (£4 each) products will last me agesssss! I used the darker shade to contour my cheeks and used small dots as it so pigmented and I was shook! It blended out so well and I was left with an awesome natural contour!

I love makeup revolution and am on thier mailing list but I bought these items myself as I was so excited to use them! Check them out in Superdrug or online at tam beauty!

Glow on….

Everyone loves a glow, whatever the season or weather we always like a glow and I have found a collection of drugstore products that will make you glow like mad but in no way break the bank!!

Firstly the base, now I have found a pretty good dupe for Mac store cream….and it’s only £4! It’s the Mua prism strobe cream in flash. I mix this in with my foundation to help give me a dewy base. And try and avoid using to much powder when going for a glowy look!

After you have concealed and cream contoured it’s onto the magic! Now liquid highlighters are everywhere and whilst I love iconic and cover fx my loves makeup revolution bought out there own version and the colour liquid champagne is such a dupe for the ‘original’ shade by iconic. I put drops on my Cupid’s bow, nose, highest points of my cheeks and slightly above the eyebrows and blend in with my sponge.

And to finish it and make it pop I add the strobe highlight from makeup revolution, a gentle dusting with a flat tan brush and the look is done and the highlight is poppin’!!!

All products are available from either tan beauty or from Superdrug! Check these out for a bargain glow!

Gigi hadid X maybelline

As you may have seen recently, Gigi hadid has teamed up with maybelline and created her own range of products. I’m a sucker for pretty packaging and this range was right up my street! It’s a nude pink, it’s sleek and it’s holographic….so instagramable!

I ordered 3 items from the range as the mascara was just lash sensational repackaged and a few other items were out of stock sadly. So I picked up a ‘warm’ eyeshadow palette, gold strobe liquid and one of the lip kits.

The lip kit is a lipstick and lip liner and I got the shade ‘taura’ which is APPARENTLY Gigi’s signature shade….to be fair it’s a lovely nude and very creamy and wearable! The liner too is a nice nude and very creamy and easy to apply. It’s also lasted really well too and didnt have much of a drying feeling.

The next item was the ‘warm’ eyeshadow palette. I will say it’s very glittery and shimmery but the colours aren’t too harsh so they are good for a natural shimmery look. On the back it even has a little guide about how to use the colours and apply the shadows to create a natural easy to wear (and apply) , smokey eye.

The last item was the golden strobe liquid which I really like! It’s great to mix with your foundation for an all over dewy look or to just apply to the cheekbones for a subtle glow, it also it is great to apply a powder highlight over the top of for a more intense highlight.

I actually really liked the products I got and all though the eye palette ain’t as dark as my usual eye shadows it’s really lovely and wearable! Let me know if you’ve tried any other products from this range and what you think!!

November favourites…

Hi and welcome to my November favourites! Keep reading to see what items I’ve been loving/trying out this November!

My first product I’ve been loving this sleepy lotion/cream from lush, I have made a more in depth post about this if you want to take a look. It’s really helped me sleep deeper and wake up more refreshed!

My second item was bought on a whim to make up my order to get free delivery! It’s the LA girl concealer. I’ve had their colour corrected before so had always wanted to to the ‘normal’ concealer and I’m glad I did, it’s great coverage and for the price (under £5) it’s a bargain!

Now my next item is my favourite….something I had wanted for ages and was so happy when it popped up when it was Black Friday and I got a bargain! I got my hands on a morphe palette and these colours are me in a palette…especially for the bargain price of £11.50….thankyouuu beauty bay!

Another makeup palette I’ve got my hands on is the makeup revolution brighter than your future highlight palette! I have done a blog post and a YouTube video on (https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCQHbLYeqZwyOscFpw8VF21g?layout=mobile&client=mv-google) explaining how much I love it and what to do with the shades you may not use so you get the most out of your £15

The last item on my list is skincare. I was contacted by this brand called ‘luvenesco’ and asked if I wanted to try out their product and I was more than happy too! It’s a retinol hydrating cream so it adds moisture and it’s anti-ageing too….perfect for winter!

That’s so…..tan

Now I am a big fake fan lover and I’m an all year around tanner so I was really excited when I was asked if I would like to try out this product! It’s a spray on ‘dark’ tan.

It comes in a lovely golden bronzed can and as it’s a spray it’s great for tanning everywhere and no dodgy back stripes. And due to the ingredients it’s a non patchy formula, and I have to agree there! I had a great dark tan and really enjoyed using this product! It even contains aloe Vera so also left my skin feel smooth and hydrated as well as that, they squeezed some anti ageing in too! What a winner!

If anyone is looking for a great spray tan then I suggest clicking below and checking these guys out as the colour is lovely and even….what more could you want…..

Feeling sleepy??

This lotion is everywhere….all over the internet….and I had to try it out! I am a lush lover anyway but this lotion I am ashamed to admit, I had never used before but after the online claims I went straight out and bought a pot!

The claims are that it’s helping thousands of people sleep….sleep better and deeper and who wouldn’t want that! Now I’m the type of person who wakes up at midnight, 1am, 3am and then wake up feeling like I’ve barely slept so I was dying to give it a go!

The smell….the smell is like lavender and gingerbread! I know it’s oatmeal and now I know that I can smell oatmeal and raisin cookies! So even if it doesn’t work….I will happily be soft and smell like a cookie all day.

Ok here we go….so day (night) one….I woke up twice but got back to sleep so much quicker and I felt like I was in more of a deep sleep

Night 2….I again applied it generously to my arms and my neck and chest area woke up twice but felt really well slept in the morning

Night 3…..again I had the same experience of waking but feeling well rested

Night 4….I slept all night! I didn’t wake up once and I woke up feeling so well slept!

With my illness I usually have to to sleep in the day but this lotion (so far) has seemed to stop this as I’m sleeping so deeply at night. It was £7.95 and it’s been better than any shop bought sleeping tablets I’ve ever had.

If you struggle to sleep I really suggest trying this! Plus it smells amazing so give it a go!
