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! 😀 🐰

Going shopping and to the cinema yesterday gave me the perfect opportunity to try out my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette:
I wanted to keep things quite natural so the eyeshadow colours I used were:
I woke up this morning with an awful dry patch on my chin and around my jawline. Suffice to say, I was not impressed! I *think* I’ve had a reaction to something but not sure what so will have to single out a product to see which it is. I suspect it may be my rose toner. I was going to wear makeup today as was wanting to experience with my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow palette but thought I should give my skin a rest so this is me au naturale:
Bar my Yours Truly Organics Fix Me! Repairing Serum, Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream and Clinique Moisture Surge Gel Creme.
Despite me still having a cold, my sister and I had a great day yesterday. We went into Scunthorpe and did a bit of shopping before going to the cinema to see Insurgent. I love the top I bought from Select. It’s very Faith from Buffy, I thought. I thought the chemise was so cute and just had to buy. I really want to get a mint green kimono or something to go with the chemise, too. Hehe I’m such a geek and just had to buy the Wonder Woman thongs! It was actually my sister who spotted them and knew I’d love them! The smellies I bought will be birthday or Christmas gifts. The mango one will be for my sister as she loves The Mortal Instruments same as me so will totally get the reference (she got me one too haha!).
Here’s my haul:
Top – £8.99 reduced to £4.99.

Insurgent was good but as with most adaptations, it missed loads out, especially scenes that we book fans were hoping to see! It also included things that weren’t supposed to happen until the third book. So I’ve no idea how the film for Allegiant will pan out especially as it’s being filmed in two parts aswell!
I hope everyone is having a fab weekend!
I decided that seeing as my Souksouk subscription was up, I’d check out a different subscription beauty box. I chose to go with Birchbox because I’d heard so many people raving about it and that they tailor to your skin/beauty/hair needs a lot better than some others, so I thought I’d see what all the fuss was about.
My box arrived yesterday and I was so excited to see what was inside. The box has such a cute and simple look to it! I would have blogged about it yesterday but was busy getting ready to go see Queen and Adam Lambert in concert (who btw were AMAZING!!! A post about that will be up sometime soon)!
I love that it came in a little drawstring bag. I got all excited when I saw that there Benefit High Beam as I’d been really wanting to try it out.
The Chia Co’s Oats & Chia.
Eyeko’s Fat Eye Stick in Gilt (full size).
Caudalie’s Vinoperfect Radiance Serum.
Electric Hair’s Hydrate Shampoo.
Benefit’s High Beam.
T London’s Darjeeling Bath & Shower Wash.
So far, I’ve tried out High Beam which highlights my cheeks and brow bone lovely. I’ve also tried the Vinoperfect Serum. I found this didn’t completely sink into my skin and a layer of serum was left on the surface a bit like moisturiser does. I think I prefer using my Yours Truly Organics’ Fix Me Repair Serum as that totally sinks in and feels like there’s nothing actually on the skin.
I can’t wait to try out the rest of the products! Do you subscribe to Birchbox? What did you think to this month’s selection of products?
Just like with the sleep box I blogged about, I was so excited when I saw this was waiting for me!
What lush things did I get in it this time? Here’s a list:
And a pic of all the lovely goodies that the list talks about:
And a close up of the Glam 3-in-1 Lipsuite in Rose Pink:
It claims to be a lip balm, colour and gloss all-in-one. So can’t wait to try that out.
I am particularly excited to try the Calendula Cream as I suffer from eczema. So, with it being all natural ingredients, I really hope it works. Plus, it smells divine!
I love that Souksouk introduces me to brands I’ve never even heard of before.
What a fab and wonderful book this was! This is primarily a recipe book to make your own Earth-friendly natural skin/beauty products but it is also filled with information on how to care for your skin, and how using natural products is not only kinder to your skin but also the environment, and also info about the beauty industry and the “natural” products commercially sold in shops and how they aren’t so natural after all! There is also a small section near the front of the book with a few food recipes to steer you in the right direction to eating healthy. And eating healthy means healthy skin too!
You don’t have to read this from the beginning, you can just dip in and out of it whenever you want. It’s filled with tonnes of really easy to follow recipes to make your own yummy and kind-to-your-skin beauty products from lip balms to face creams to shampoo, and from just a handful of ingredients too! I’m itching to make some scrummy smelling lip balm and all I’d need is 2 or 3 ingredients! What is really helpful is that the author notes the shelf life of each recipe so you know how long it’s going to last you once it’s made. The first thing I wanted to do after reading this, actually it was during if I’m totally honest, is go out and buy all the ingredients and utensils to make my own beauty products. I can’t wait to try them out. The best thing about making your own products is that you know exactly what you’re putting in there and that there’s no nasty chemicals or added preservatives, colours etc. Instead it is all natural which is especially great if you have sensitive skin. This book really is amazing and definitely worth a read.
