NYX Acqua Luxe lip glosses - review + swatches! (+ blog update)


Hey, muffins! Today, I'm very excited to talk to you about these gorgeous Acqua Luxe lip glosses by NYX. I briefly mentioned these in my NYX mini haul, and today, I'm bringing you a full review! NYX claims that these glosses are 'packed with glitter and just a hint of colour to create the look of full, luminous lips'. They can be worn on their own, or layered over a lipstick for mirror-like shine. These glosses come in five different shades, featuring mostly pink tones, but there are a couple of nude and peachy shades, too. Today, I will be swatching two of those shades - VIP and High Society. Hope you enjoy!

The £1 face!


Hey, muffins! How do you feel about budget beauty products? Personally, I love to indulge in high-end makeup, although admittedly, expensive doesn't always mean good. Cheap doesn't always mean bad, either, and there sure are some amazing, budget-friendly gems out there. Recently, I received a few makeup items from Miss Beauty London - a brand that features only £1 beauty products. This gave me the inspiration for today's post, so I went ahead and purchased a bunch of £1 makeup from different brands. Today, I will show you my makeup done using £1 products only, and share my honest thoughts on some of the most budget-friendly makeup out there. Hope you enjoy!

Recent skincare discoveries - hits and misses!


Hey, beauties! Today, I thought I'd so something a little different, and talk about my recent skincare discoveries. It's quite rare for me to feature skincare reviews on my blog, mainly because I don't consider myself that knowledgeable in the subject. I love learning about skincare from my favourite beauty gurus like Anne (Linda, Libra, Loca) and Samantha (My Beauty Cloud), but when it comes to my own skincare choices, I kind of just go with whatever sounds good! This is why instead of writing individual reviews, I thought I would share with you some general thoughts on my recent skincare acquisitions. Hope you enjoy!

NYX mini haul + first impressions!


Hey, jelly beans! Today, I'm very excited to bring you my first beauty haul. NYX is a brand that's always been on my radar - their products are affordable, and the quality rivals some of the most expensive makeup brands. However, until recently NYX was quite difficult to get hold of in the UK. When my local Boots finally started stocking it, I picked up a bunch of NYX products and thought that it would be a good opportunity for a little 'shop-and-tell'. Hope you enjoy!

My guide to celebrity perfumes - collection + recommendations! (Part 2)

Hey, lovelies! It's time for part two of my celebrity perfume collection (you can check out part one here!). In the first part, I talked a little bit about the importance of not judging perfumes by their label, and showed you a few of my favourites by Britney Spears, Beyonce and Katy Perry. Today, I will be sharing the rest of my collection, which features more unusual celebrity scents. If you don't like the typical, sugary-sweet celebrity perfumes, these recommendations will be perfect for you. Hope you enjoy!
