Can I just say how delicious it smelled? Made me wanna eat my own face haha!
I had to wait 20 mins for the mask to work its magic. Then take it off, gently pat the left over gel into my face, and rinse off. It claims to be moisturising and brightening, and it smooths and tightens the skin. My face didn’t feel any tighter but it certainly moisturised it and it looked smooth. I can’t get over how soft my skin felt!! Even Aled commented on how soft it was! Would definitely use this mask again!
I figured washing my hair AFTER the face mask would be an ideal time to do it. After I washed my hair I decided I’d have a go at French braiding my hair. I have to say, I haven’t done this in years and years! I attempted French braided pigtails. I probably haven’t done this since college so that really is quite some years ago! Whenever I do my own hair, I never use a mirror. My eyes get confused haha. So I do it blind. And I don’t use a comb either when I French braid my own hair. It’s just too fiddly! I can do it on other people though because I can see what I’m doing! Anyway, it took me about 10 minutes to do (I had to backtrack a couple of times because it was too loose on places or I’d missed some hair) and I was pretty pleased with the outcome!
I left them in overnight so that my hair would be curly when I took them out today. Have to admit, I kinda didn’t wanna take them out lol. I quite liked them! Thought I would also put a little bit of makeup on today so went for a natural look. Used my ABH Modern Renaissance palette today and I loved how my eyeshadow turned out but sadly didn’t get a decent pic of it because it wasn’t until I’d taken my pics that I’d realised I’d bodged up my eyeliner. Oops! Also wearing my fave lippy today: Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Celebrity Skin.
I was quite impressed with how the curls turned out! Think I’ll be doing this again for sure! My hair has gotten so long! It’s in dire need of a cut and plenty of layers put back in!
That’s all for today guys. Take care!
Hey all! How’s your Friday? Today I thought I’d have a play with my Morphe 35F palette and share the look. I actually think I love this palette more than my ABH Modern Renaissance palette! There isn’t much fallout from the Morphe eyeshadows (unlike Modern Renaissance) and they are sooo buttery and easy to work with!
There are some really gorgeous shades in this palette. Perfect for autumn time! I love wearing them any time of the year though. The palette is currently available from Beauty Bay for £22.50. If you’re after a new eyeshadow palette then definitely check out the Morphe ones. I’d loooove to get more! Do any of you own a Morphe palette? Which ones do you have?
Hey guys! How’s your Tuesday going? Today I’m going to talk about a great cruelty free cosmetics brand called Medusa’s Makeup. Their products are also vegan friendly. Yay! I first discovered this brand on Facebook! I was drawn to their bright lipstick/eyeshadow shades and, most importantly, that they are vegan. They were kind enough to send me a lipstick to review (you may have seen my previous post) and, just so you know, all opinions are my own. 😀 I would never be dishonest about a product that I’m reviewing. Now, on to the review…
Above I am wearing Medusa’s lipstick in the shade Triple X. The bright pink is quite the show stopper and will certainly get you noticed! The formulation is gorgeous and so creamy! It’s so moisturising and the pigmentation is amazing! After taking this pic I blotted it and had something to eat and drink and the colour was still so bright! As you can see below:
As you can see, it’s faded a little at the edges and towards the middle of my lips but it’s still going strong! I’d say I had to reapply about 3 hours after the first application which is actually quite good going in my opinion. Overall, I really love this lippy and would definitely like try out more shades!
Medusa’s Makeup also do a monthly subscription box. How fab is that?! You guys know I looove me a subscription box! Would definitely consider buying one of these in the future!
You should pop on by to Medusa’s Makeup and check their products out for yourself! Their prices are really affordable and for us who don’t live in the US it’s free international delivery on orders over $40.
I love Makeup Revolution’s vivid baked highlighter in golden lights. You can use a quick swirl of the highlighter for a natural glow, giving a flawless look to your skin. Sooo easy to apply and blend. You literally only need a tiny bit for that subtle glow or a little bit more to really blind them!
Dare I say it’s better than Jeffree Star’s Skin Frosts?? Yes! And at £3 it’s a fraction of the cost! I shall definitely be purchasing again! On my eyes I’ve used the Jeffree Star Androgyny palette and on my lips the Morphe liquid lipstick in School Girl.
I bought my Vivid Baked Highlighter from Superdrug but you can also purchase it online from Tam Beauty.
Note: The makeup products I have used are either cruelty free or vegan! 😀 🐰

Because my lips are still recovering from an allergic reaction to a lip plumper, I don’t feel confident wearing makeup at the mo and sharing the looks so I thought I’d share another look that I did a few weeks ago. I’d recently bought a Freedom eyeshadow palette so couldn’t wait to give it a whirl! My brows aren’t quite on point but fairly pleased with the overall look. I used shades Moonstone, Rose and Revelation from my Freedom Jewels And Riches palette and Jeffree Star’s liquid lippy in Sagittarius on my lips. 😀 Loving the Freedom eyeshadow palette. It’s quite pigmented and for £8 you can’t go wrong! What are your favourite eyeshadow palettes? Do you own any from this brand? Let me know in the comments below!
I open it and this is what I first see:
My gosh I was so excited that these lovely goodies were in my possession! So far I have tried the Aloe Vera and Ylang Ylang bubble bath/shower gel. It smells divine! After my bath (which sadly was luke warm due to the boiler konking out but hey ho) I tried out the Sleep Tight Body Cream. There is a definite lavender-ness about it and there’s another yummy herbal-y smell to it too…lush! Before I go to bed tonight I’m gonna pop some sleep balm on my temples and sweet dreams roller ball on my wrists. Ooh and those sleep patches on my feet. Fingers crossed that I shall have the best night sleep EVER tonight! I had gastritis last week and have been suffering from insomnia since last Thursday so all being well this will help! Wish me luck!
Whilst searching for a beauty box (makeup/beauty case, whatever you wanna call it) on the ‘net due to wanting all my makeup to be in one place and more organised, I surprisingly came across a site called Souksouk.
It’s a fab little site that sends you a “little green beauty box” each month filled with beautiful “green” goodies which are organic and -yay!- animal cruelty free!
You can buy a one off box or you can buy a quarterly, six monthly or yearly subscription. You can also see what was sent in previous boxes so that you have an idea of the type of things you’ll get. At the moment they’re doing a limited edition “Beauty Sleep Box” which I have personally ordered as I do have trouble sleeping. I can’t wait to try it out!
If you like your green, organic and animal friendly beauty and makeup products then this site is definitely worth checking out!
