January Monthly Favourites ft. Real Techniques and Bobbi Brown!

I am thrilled to talk about this month’s favourites!  Last month was quite a boring month (even if it was Christmas month…) because I didn’t really try anything new or if I did, it was very late within the month. Mainly, I stuck to my previous favourites so nothing changed. Despite so, my last favourites post actually fared really well, so thank you everyone! 🙂 I haven’t been beauty shopping much* because I am trying to use up what I do have whilst also resetting my current collection – both in skincare and makeup. This month’s buys consist only of two brushes (featured here) but everything else are months old in terms of purchase, so you can imagine my delight when I finally got round to trying (and loving) them! *I’ve bought bits and bobs from Home Bargains the other day, but they were extremely cheap and cheerful. Half were essentials and replacement items!  Here they are, in all their glory, my favourites of the month… Featured in this post: Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil …

30 Beauty Questions Tag

It’s been a while since I last did a tag but from what I remember, they’re fun and interactive! I saw Stella’s post and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to take part too. 🙂 I have told you a bit about myself in Q&As but I am sure that there are some beauty-related gaps that haven’t been filled. Well, you know what they say – if you don’t ask, you don’t tell! 😝 Let’s Start: Do you remember your first makeup item? I’m certain that it was a mascara by Rimmel. I doubt that they sell it anymore since it was so long ago! At the time, my eldest brother’s girlfriend wore this mascara but I cannot remember if she gifted one to me or if I just went ahead and bought my own. I do remember however, that she bought other makeup for me. 🙂 Describe your perfect mascara. It has to hold the curl! Otherwise, it is a deal-breaker for me I’m afraid. I like a mascara that lifts my lashes and gives …

October Monthly Favourites ft. Naruko, Bare Minerals + NYX

I’ve told you time and time again that Favourites are my favourite to write (along with my Empties post) and somehow, if it were possible, this is the most exciting one I have to share with you! Perhaps it’s due to the fact that this month, it’s much more makeup-heavy than usual (I tend to be more skincare-heavy) and so I’m exploring new heights. I’ve been so excited for autumn/winter and for once in my life, I’m incredibly into makeup. I mean, I’ve been on a makeup frenzy. I’m generally quite simple with my makeup but a few Mondays ago, I just went for it. I felt like getting a whole load of nude lip colours and I’ve been exploring eyeshadow more too. Don’t hesitate to check out my beauty haul to see what else I got! 🙂 Featured in this post: Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask EX Bare Minerals Bare Pro Liquid Foundation in ‘Warm Natural 12’ Maybelline Color Tattoo in ‘On and On Bronze’ NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Cannes’ …

The Beauty Clean-Up #7 (empties) | HUGE Edition Once Again!

Whoa there. #7? It feels like I’m going through these at a faster rate, the more I go through them! This month has just been empties after empties. It’s interesting because I have this thing where I wait for all of my to-be-empties to actually be empties before I go and make a post about it. I can’t just go and talk about 10 and leave 3 hanging! I did say that this was a clean-up after all, didn’t I? Enjoy! + Would repurchase – Will not bother again = Neutral/Indifferent + L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Wash + Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm = Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil – La Roche-Posay Serozinc + The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin = The Ordinary Buffet + Tonymoly Intense Care Snail Hydro-gel Mask + The Cure Green Tea Collagen Essence Mask + Neogen Milk Cream Essential Mask + Neogen Black Caviar Essential Mask = La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL + Dr Organic Aloe Vera Gel + Cien Soft Make-Up Pads + Batiste Dry Shampoo in ‘Cherry’ …

5 Beauty Products I Took To Berlin

Before I went to Berlin for a 5-day trip, I had thought to create a post on what I was taking beauty-wise (skincare and makeup). Skincare planning did not go to waste and in fact – I thought I did rather well. (Upcoming post on that soon!) But on the makeup front, I have to admit that I didn’t use everything that I brought with me. It’s silly really, and somehow I do this every time. It’s almost like I have an irrational fear of not having enough makeup with me on my travels! So today, I’m showing you the exact 5 products that I did use during the whole course of my trip to sport a less is more look. Featured in this post: Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Duo in 1 Dark Brown L’Oréal A Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara Dior Addict Lipstick in 871 Power Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder in Pale Yellow I believe all of these products have been previously featured in my favourites post, which …
