M&S Rosie For Autograph Product Review

Hi everyone! welcome back to another blog post, how are you all? I hope you’re doing well 🙂 for today’s post I wanted to share something which I recently got my hands on, and that’s is Rosie For Autograph make up which is exclusive to Marks & Spencer’s. Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley is an English model, actress, designer and business woman who is mostly known for her work with Victoria’s Secret.

In this collection there’s a range of products from foundation to blushers and even perfume! you really are spoiled for choice when it comes to deciding what to purchase. The price of the products ranges from £6 to £28 which in my opinion isn’t actually to bad for the quality you receive.

Before I do get into the review I want to point out that I do not have all of the collection to review but I do have some bits and pieces which I wanted to share with you, so let’s get right into it…


20180228_121303.jpg


The first thing I picked up was the Bronzer which comes in 2 shades ‘Bronzed Beauty’ and ‘Magic Contour’ I have to admit these would not work on darker/deeper skin tones as they’re more suited for pale/medium skin. Sadly there isn’t any darker shades *that I know of* which is kind of annoying but hopefully more shades will be released in the future. The shade which I got was ‘Bronzed Beauty’ this is what the packaging looks like this

20180228_121710.jpg

As you can see the packaging is absolutely stunning, with Rosie’s name engraved into the top part of the compact and a beautiful reflecting rose gold finish, this look’s luxurious. *please ignore all the finger prints/marks* when the compact opens, you do get a little mirror which is great for if you’re travelling or if you decide to take this with you throughout the day. The product itself is that perfect shade for pale people like myself who want to have that natural bronze look, this retails for £18 which is a little bit pricey for drugstore but the finish you get from this bronzer really is nice. I find that a little bit goes a long way so make sure to use a light hand and build the product up, that way you’re going to get a better flawless coverage.

20180228_121821.jpg

I also love the letter R engraved into the product surrounded by the rose, such a nice product all round and definitely worth trying out.

It’s available to purchase here : http://www.marksandspencer.com/bronzer-bronzed-beauty/p/p22445339?prevPage=plp&pdpredirect


The next thing from the collection I purchased is the ‘Insta Glow Bronzer’ yes I know you’re probably thinking ‘hang on she already bought a bronzer’ well if you’ve been reading my posts for a while and giving the name of my blog, yep you guessed it…I love a bit of shimmer/glitter. So when I saw this I just had to buy it too! I mean after all, summer is just around the corner so those glowing bronzers are getting ready to come back out. Again this gorgeous product comes in the rose gold/black packaging, and it is a little bit more pricey than the other bronzer giving us the retail price of £20

20180228_121951.jpg

This, again, has the rose engraved into the centre of the product but the packaging is shaped like a dome and the lid is plastic unlike the previous compact I talked about.

20180228_122256.jpg

Look at that highlight!! how gorgeous is it?! and the formula itself is super creamy, blendable and buildable what more could you want?!

Some people may look at it and think that it can’t be pulled off but honestly it gives your make up such a lovely finish. The summer days are coming up, give yourself that natural bronze look and why not add in a little bit of glow? making you look super healthy, this product is one I’m going to be reaching for all summer!

You can purchase it here : http://www.marksandspencer.com/instant-glow-matte-bronzer-10g/p/p22445367?prevPage=plp


The last thing I picked up, is the Insta Lash Mascara which retails for £15 and I have to admit…I was kind of disappointed in this product. Again this comes in the rose gold packaging which is applied to everything throughout the collection but unlike the previous products this let me down, not drastically let me down but definitely didn’t live up to my expectations.

 

The only shade available upon purchasing this was ‘black/brown’ which I didn’t mind as sometimes this colour mascara gives you more of a natural look if you say. Anyways again I’m a huge fan of the packaging but the bristles on the wand itself was tough, I honestly felt like I was applying mascara with a sweeping brush 😦 and after a few hours the product had smudged quite a bit. I usually go for waterproof mascaras as that’s just my personal preference but thought I would give this one the benefit of the doubt.

If you want to try it out for yourself you can check it out here : http://www.marksandspencer.com/insta-lash/p/p22445320?prevPage=plp


That does bring us to the end of this post, I think the range of different products is really good as there is so much to choose from, the packaging is really luxurious and I am living for those bronzers! they are also cruelty free which is amazing!! I love how some products have the R engraved into them and roses are one of my favourite flowers and have a special meaning to myself, so I think it gives it that little bit more of a cute touch. Hopefully I get the chance to try out more things from this collection and if I do I’ll be sure to update you guys on my thoughts.

Make-Up Revolution Conceal & Define

Hello everyone! god, its been a while hasn’t it?! how are you all? I decided I want to share my opinions on the MakeUp Revolution Concealer which has been taking over a lot of my timeline and when I say a lot… I mean literally it’s everywhere! I think every beauty influencer I’m subscribed to on YouTube has dropped a video where they talk about this product, people from the likes of Sophdoesnails to Holly Boon and even the likes of Laura Lee have been raving about this concealer. So obviously I had to try this out for myself, and especially because it does not break the bank (I know we all love a bargain right?) this product costs only £4 and for the hype it was receiving I had high expectations.

Explanation…

Well, it’s been a while! I have kinda been a bit awol from the blogging world and i’m not gonna lie it’s simply because I just lost the motivation in writing posts, I got stuck on what to write and just lost track of time. But now I’ve decided to give it another go! The past couple months have been a bit hectic but I’m going to try to find time each week to sit and write a blog post.

So I want to start off by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR 🎉 January went so slow and now it’s the end of February?! Time is going by so bloody quickly right?? I have a few things coming up this year which I’m rather excited for, March is going to be an amazing month but I’m not going to say to much as I’m thinking of putting it all into a blog post when the day comes so I can share my experience with you guys, I’ve gotten a few new beauty products since I last posted so I’m gonna post some reviews of them and share my thoughts with you all.

Again, I do apologise for not posting as much as I could have but I’m going to try change that and post regularly! I hope you guys are looking forward to new posts, don’t forget to click that follow button so you get a notification when I post!

10 Beauty Gifts Under £30 

Hello everyone, it’s the time of the year where we sometimes get a little bit stuck on what to buy people for Christmas. So I thought I would maybe help by suggesting some gifts for the beauty lover in your life, I think you can never go wrong with a gift set and there is so many good ones out there for great prices. I looked about online and picked out 10 products that stood out to myself that I think would make a great gift, whether that be for a friend or family member or even yourself 😉 I know it can be difficult to pick something that’s great quality but also to not have a large price tag, so I did my best to budget up to £30 and pick things that were below this amount. Let’s get right into it…

 

 

                  Smashbox Try It Kit : Bestsellers  – £22

Screenshot_20171202-181409.png

IMAGE : boots.com

The first thing I came across was this Smashbox set on the boots website (http://www.boots.com/smashbox-try-it-kit-bestsellers-10236630) and straight away I saw 2 products in this what I absolutely love and that is the mascara and primer, In this kit you get 5 things which include :

  • Photo Finish Foundation Primer – 7.1ml
  • Be Legendary Cream Lipstick – Primrose (Mauve Pink) 2.4g
  • 24 Hour Shadow Primer – 4ml
  • Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner – Raven (FULL SIZE)
  • Full Exposure Mascara – 4ml

so they are travel size products, for example the Photo finish foundation primer on its own (travel size) is £13 and the Full exposure mascara (travel size) is £5 and keep in mind that you’re also receiving a  FULL SIZE Kohl Liner which is worth £18 on it’s own, plus the lipstick and the eyeshadow primer for just £22 is an absolute bargain. You get a range of different things to test out, I have the Photo finish primer what is amazing and such good quality, a little pea sized amount covers the full face and smooth’s everything out. I also have the Full Exposure Mascara that personally isn’t one of the ones I grab all the time but when I do I realise why I love it so much, it’s not waterproof but I promise you it does not move all and its so easy to take off when removing make up.  I find that travel size things always seem to last a while as well. This is so good I might even pick it up for myself! haha. The link is above if you want to check it out.

3 Beauty Products You Need This Party Season🎄💄

Hello everyone!! Welcome back once again to another blog post hope you’re enjoying December so far, for today’s post I wanted to share a few products that have become some of my favourtie things in my make up collection over time. There’s 2 which have been there for a while but then the other I’m going to be talking about is something that’s just recently been added to my list. As it is the season of giving I’m all about that “treat yo self girl” so if I was you I’d buy yourself a present after all we’ve got to have a treat at some point right? So without me rambling on lets get right into it…

The first thing I want to speak about is this Kat Von D – Shade And Light Contour Pallet I know this is a little pricey but it’s worth the extra for the quality of this.

This retails for £37 so when I say treat yourself this really is a treat haha! The pigment on this is incredible and a little goes a long way. You get 3 highlight shades and 3 contour colours, I believe there’s also a cream version but I’m not a huge fan of cream products hence I bought this one.

 As you can see above on the top row we have 3 matte highlight shades and from left to right the shades are levitation which is more of a pink undertone colour, we then have lyric which is inbetween shades of yellow and transparent I wanna say, then the last of the 3 is lucid which is a shade for darker skin tones and more on the peachy side of colours.

Underneath we have the 3 contour shades and from left to right once again we have subcontious which is has a cool undertone, then there’s the shade shadowplay which is a gorgeous bronze colour and would work amazing on any skin tone, last but not least we have sombre which is a contour shade for darker skin tones. The shades in this pallet i use are lyric to give me a base of matte highlight ready for the shimmer highlight later on, I then use subcontious to contour, and to finish off I bronze with shadowplay. Now I cannot praise this pallet enough, when I first bought it back in June and then I used it I was really surprised at how pigmented it was and how much little product you need to complete your look, these powders are literally like butter they just melt into the skin and blend effortlessly.


 

The next product which is a must have for all year round! is what I have wanted to try for so long and I finally got my hands on it a few weeks back and that is the Sleek – Solstice Palette and considering this is only £9.99 its an absolute bargain! So in this we get 2 baked powders, one luxurious cream formula and one silky shimmer powder. 

 

This packaging is insane!!😍 it closes on a magnetic clip and it feels so luxurious for a drugstore brand they really have amazing packaging. I recently tried out some sleek eyeshadows as well so no doubt they’ll be a little review coming up at some point, the highlight is absolutely stunning and blinding!! 20171201_125631.jpg

My favourtie shade in the palette is the bottom shade on the image below, it gives you a nice champagne colour and would work amazing on any skin tones. 20171201_125718.jpg



 

Last but not least something that my look would not be complete without it is the Urban Decay Chill Setting Spray 

Now if you’ve been here a while and read my other posts you’ll know how much I rave about this product and how much i tell you guys that if you’re going to buy a high end product that is worth all of the money this is the one! I’ve been using this setting spray for about 2 years now and I’ve tried other sprays and none of them work like this one I promise you, this costs £23.50 so it’s pricey but not going to break the bank. It’s super refreshing and make up does not move at all this is the one thing I absolutely cannot do my make up without.

 

 


That’s all I have for you in this post I do hope you’ve enjoyed it, I seriously cannot believe Christmas is right around the corner its came so quickly and I’m super excited for it, what are you all thinking of the Christmas make over on here? Are you liking it or is there anything you would change or do better? I’ll take ideas so don’t be worried to let me know your true thoughts 😂 over the next couple weeks I’ve got some gift guides to come out I’m going to try posting on Wednesdays and Sunday’s whilst on the lead up until Christmas as I just have so much to share with you all. But for now I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s post if you have don’t forget to give it a like and follow my page so you don’t miss the next post!!

See you all soon,

A Cure For Insomnia?

Hiii everyone! Before we get started I just wanted to apologise for not uploading on Sunday I’ve had a few things on and it’s been a little hectic. Also last week I picked up a product which as soon as I tried it I knew instantly I had to share it with you guys and knew that it was worth waiting a few extra days for a new post for you all to read. If you’re anything like myself, as soon as you get into bed and put your head on the pillow to sleep every thought pop’s into your head and boom…It’s 2am and you’re wondering why on one side of a spoon your reflection is the normal way up but on the other its upside down? Why do I think this?? I haven’t a clue 😂

So recently I went into LUSH which I’m sure everyone has heard of, they do amazing products and the shop always smells incredible. All products are 100% cruelty free which is absolutely amazing, I’ve been a huge fan of this shop ever since I was little and I used to go in every now and then to pick out a bath bomb and stuff like that. when I visited last week there was a lovely woman who helped me out as the store was absolutely packed (more than usual) and I did originally go in for one thing which is my all time favourite product from lush and it only comes around once a year and that’s the famous Snow Fairy Shower Gel but as I was informed she told me all about the other products which have the Snow Fairy formula in so obviously I had to check them out, I ended up purchasing the Snow Fairy Shower Gel and the Snow Fairy Cold Pressed Soap  but I’ll probably speak about these n another post. The main product I wanted to speak about today is the Sleepy Body Lotion which I had heard youtubers speak about a while back, so when I saw this in store I picked it up immediately this cost me £7.95 for the 95g tub which is the smallest I believe you can buy it in.

I seem to have tried so many products to help with sleep, from balms to spray nothing has ever worked for me, so you can understand the first night I tested out the cream I was a little sceptical of it. The main ingredients are lavender oil and oatmeal and I have to admit I’ve never been a huge fan of lavender myself but I’m at the point that ill try anything to help me have a decent nights sleep, so I applied the lotion on each wrist and the smell was really sweet I don’t want to say strong because I feel like the oatmeal cancels out the strong scent of lavender. To my surprise I was actually asleep within 10-15 minutes which FYI never happens! I was confused as to whether on not I had just had a long day or this had actually worked, so again the following night I applied the lotion once again and guess what…IT WORKED AGAIN!! I have no idea how lush have pulled this off but my god what an amazing product. and the best thing about it, it has a sprinkle of shimmer when you first open the pot. 20171129_163650.jpg

as you can see it is very subtle (and yes I have used product around it as its so pretty to look at haha!) and you all know I love a bit of sparkle guys!

I’ve used this for just over a week now and I can say its really helping me have a better nights sleep and the aroma makes you feel so relaxed, I’ll definitely be repurchasing this is in the bigger tub when I’ve used all of this one.

 

 

 

That’s all I have for you guys for this post, I do hope you’ve enjoyed it make sure you’re following so you get a notification when I next post! what’s your favourite product from lush? let me know in the comments down below. Also this weekend its finally December!! look out for the Christmas make over on the blog and some festive posts coming up!

see you soon,

My Everyday 10 Minute Make-Up 💋

In the voice of RuPaul, Hello Hello Hello!! Welcome back to my blog, it honestly doesn’t feel like 5 minutes since I posted the last one, this year is going in so quickly. Something I’ve wanted to share with you all since I started doing this blog is what my every day make up routine is, it’s only fair after all make up is the main reason I’m sharing my thoughts with you all so it’s about time I told you guys what kind of products I use on a daily basis. Before I do get into the post I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who’s supported me so far in this journey, I’ve found so many amazing blogs and people who are on the same journey I am. Each time I post my follower count just seems to increase and that’s what keeps making me want to write more knowing you guys truly like what I’m posting about, and it does mean a lot. So before we get the tissues out and become emotional 😂 without further ado lets get into the post…
Okay so the first thing I use in my make up routine (after I’ve moisturised and all that) is Primer and recently I remembered I had one in my draw that I was yet to try, up until lately I was using my trustworthy Smashbox Photo Finish and then I tried out my current one which is the Stila One Step Correct 

 I’m still undecided about this being a holy grail product as I have only used it a few times so there isn’t a lot I can say, the consistency isn’t runny or thick it’s like somewhere in between and it doesn’t have a scent to it I personally don’t think. This is the travel size which I purchased for £8 I think it was? I bought this a while back so, I will keep using it to see if I can class this as a holy grail and if the full size product which retails for £24 is worth the splurge, after applying this the redness on my face doesn’t seem to have calmed down but my skin looks more glowing.

 

 


The next thing I do, is apply foundation and for this I use the DHC Q10 Liquid Base Make-Up which I actually wrote a review on a while back (I’ll leave the link below If you want to see my full review on this) and I seriously cannot praise this product enough!! I can honestly tell you that this has changed my full make up routine.

20171102_135117.jpgI have not used any of my other foundations ever since I tried this, for me I like to look for something with medium coverage and is long wearing. The coverage is medium/full but still looks so natural on the skin and if you’re pale like myself you know the struggle to get a decent foundation that matches the colour of your neck without using a full compact of bronzer!! 😂 I have this in the shade  Natural Ocher 00 which is the lightest shade you can get this in I believe, the consistency is quite liquidy if you get me and a little bit goes a long way. Before I found this I did use foundations from Bare Minerals and Revlon. Which I still love but I haven’t reached for them since I received this one, this is hard to get your hands on I have found but I believe it retails for $29 Which works out about £22 in the UK. It lasts so long and makes the rest of your products go on so much smoother and really gives you that flawless base to make your make up last and look incredible!


After doing that I use my NYX Colour Correcting Pallet, which retails for £10.50 over here. Now for everyday I do just like a little bit of coverage and something to try make me look at least half decent, my pallet is really messy with using the colours so I’ll show you a spare one that I take with me if I travel anywhere so it’s only been used a little and looks a lot better haha!

As you can see on the image above I use the shade middle on the right. This product is really good and it does a reasonable job to hide those places where you want a bit more coverage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

I then go in with my concealer and for this I use the urban decay naked skin in the shade fair neutral 

I absolutely love this product, it’s very lightweight on the skin and the coverage is amazing! I can use this around my nose area (without the colour corrector) where I have a bit more redness and It covers it absolutely perfect. It really brightens the under eye as well. This retails for £19 in the UK so it is a little pricey but definitely worth the splurge.

 

 

 

 


 

After applying my base i set everything in place with powder. Now I do tend to switch up which product I use, if I’m in a rush I like to use the Soap and Glory one heck of a blot translucent setting powder  

This leaves the face looking smooth and matte and we know the struggle of getting a powder what doesn’t flash back in photographs but in my opinion this has NO FLASH BACK yes you heard me right!! I love soap and glory products but I think this is my favourtie thing ever from the brand, it’s definitely a great everyday wear and great to take with you for touch ups throughout the day. This retails for £12 so it’s a bit more pricey for a drugstore powder but it’s definitely one worth spending that little extra pounds on.

 

Or when I’m spending a bit more time on my make up and making a bit more of an effort I like to use the RCMA No Colour Powder 

Which is around the £13 price mark, I heard one of my favourtie youtubers Michael Finch speak about this so long ago and he was raving about it and I knew instantly I wanted to try this, few months later this appeared on beauty bay and it went straight in the basket. Let me tell you… OH MY GOD I never knew I could be so in love with a powder!!😍 you’re probably thinking I’m crazy talking like this about a powder but this really is the shit, a little bit goes a long way, it’s not got flashback, it makes you look airbrushed without looking fake if that makes sense?😂 and it makes the skin so much smoother and velvety it’s insane!!

 


Time to add a little bit of colour back into the face which only means one thing…Bronzer. Now for this I use the urban decay beached bronzer in the shade sunkissed. 

And I’m not gonna lie this is the best bronzer I seem to have found for pale skin, it’s not orange but it’s not cool toned I can’t explain it but just know it’s somewhere in-between if that makes sense?😂 sadly I have hardly any of this left which does break my heart but I can see myself definitely purchasing again, I feel like it’s got a little bit of a scent and it kind of reminds me of fake tan?? I love the smell of fake tan don’t get me wrong, but am I the only one? Let me know if you like the smell of it too and that I’m not the only one hahaha! This retails for £19 but again it’s urban decay and worth the money. Also for a day to day wear I like to run this through the crease of my eye and add a little bit of highlighter later on to make me look a bit more awake.

—————————————————————————–

Adding a pop of colour onto the cheeks its time for Blusher. For this my all time favourite is definitely the NYX Baked Blush in the shade 06 wanderlust 

 

I think I paid around £7.50 for this? I’m not 100% sure but it wasn’t anything crazy, I feel like blusher is something you never ever run out of, like you could buy a blush and still be using it in 50 years time (don’t do that btw guys)😂 this has a lovely shimmer to it, nothing over the top its just something that gives you a healthy glow.


I then like to do my favourite step which is Highlight I absolutely love doing this and sometimes I go a little over board but I would bathe in it if I could haha! My go to highlighter is definitely Mary-lou’manizer’ from The Balm. 

I’ve used this so many times and as you can see on the image above it still looks like new!! This is a golden champagne highlight and the texture is very creamy and easy to blend. It looks amazing on the skin and it’s really easy to build up, this retails for £19 but I did manage to get my hands on this whilst it was on sale so I only paid £13 for this which is an absolute bargain! As I said earlier I like to put a little highlight on the middle of my eye lid and on the inner corner as it makes you look more awake. 


The mascara I use is the MAC False Lash Waterproof and this was hard to get a photo of as I’ve used it that much the writing is fading from the packaging so I’ve just got one off Google to show you which one it is

 I absolutely swear by this mascara, the price is £19 and worth every penny!! I’ve tried drugstore ones and don’t get me wrong I’ve liked them but in the end I always come back to this one. It’s super long wearing and does not move all day, but what makes it even better is that it’s the only waterproof mascara I’ve found that lasts all day but is easy to remove at the end of the day when taking the rest of your make up off. It’s honestly like magic, I tend to find that after a while my eyes can become irritated for some reason I think I may have a bit of sensitivity when it comes to products such as this but this mac one seems to be the only one which doesn’t affect me.

 


Now I know you’re probably thinking “wait where is the brow step in this” and you might be shocked but I actually don’t do anything to my brows apart from brush them that’s one thing I love about my eyebrows, they’ve always been quite dark and they’re thick so all I do is brush them to make sure there’s no make up that’s gotten into them but apart from that I don’t do anything.


Almost to the end of my routine and it’s time for lips so before we apply lipstick I like to use some Lip Balm as I find when wearing this underneath it helps the staying power. So my all time favourite is the Palmers Cocoa Butter formula Lip Balm 20171102_134926.jpg

I frigging love love loveeeee this! Palmers is definitely a brand that never fails to amaze me, I have other products from them as well which I might mention more sometime in the future if you guys wanted? But I think you can pick this up from anywhere, i got mine from Superdrug and I paid £1.99 for it, it’s definitely my all time favourite lip balm! It’s lightweight and feels extremely moisturising. And the scent of this is insane😍 I love the smell of the all the Palmers products though so😂

After applying the lip balm its time for lipstick and I tend to switch between 2 at the minute, the first one is my all time favourite which is velvet teddy by mac 

This my go to nude, I know there was a huge hype around this a while back and it sort of died down but I’m still obsessed with it now! Again there’s something about the scent of mac lipsticks that I absolutely love, I can’t explain it but if you get me then you know what I’m saying. This retails for £16.50 and it’s one of those shades what i think is my lips but better colours.

 

 

 

 

 

The other lipstick which I bought like a week ago what is great for a day to day use is the Rimmel London Kate in the shade boho nude 

I found this in the sale when I was in my local asda recently, and when I looked at the price it was only £3.80 and for that price I couldn’t resist, I mean come on?? It’s a bargain! I’ve only used this a couple times hence why it still looks like new but even when I first tried it on I knew instantly I loved it. I would describe this as a pale nude which is very natural for everyday.


Last but not least I seal in my Make-Up with setting spray and for this I use the same product I have for the past 2 or 3 years (Don’t worry I’ve repurchased 😂) and that is the Urban Decay Chill Setting Spray 

20171102_134638.jpgIf you’re looking for a new setting spray this is my holy grail product, if this wasn’t in my collection I don’t know how I would be living! I first tried this when it was my prom in high school and at the end of the night my make up literally looked the same I was shook. From then on I’ve never looked back, I’ve tried other sprays from drugstore and again I’ve always gone back to this one, it’s super cooling and very hydrating. I’ve recommended this to so many people or when I’ve done make up for close friend/family member I’ve used this on them and always had great feedback from it saying how the make up lasted all night and things. The price of this is £23.50 So again its pricey, but it’s something I can’t see myself living without now.


 

And that guys is my everyday 10 Minute Make-Up its nothing glamourous, its simple and quick to get me through the day. I know some products are a little pricey but I am I sucker for high end make up and love the luxury of it! I might do a full glam look in the future if that’s something you guys would want to see?
