Krispy Kreme Cosmetics?! 

Well here’s a post i never ever imagined writing, hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post! Yes you read the title right, today we are going to be talking about the new collection from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts they have released a different product range from their mouth watering treats…cosmetics!! When I first heard the news I was literally shook, I googled it as I thought *what this cannot be right?* but to my surprise this was true, I saw online that there was products ranging from lip balms to nail varnish sets and instantly I knew I needed to get my hands on at least 1 product from this range. I was able to get the Lip Balm Trio Set which retails for £7 here in the UK which for 3 products is quite a good deal. So this is what the packaging looks like

It literally looks like your packaging what you get your doughnut in, I think the tins are a little bit plain but I can’t see what else they could’ve done without the classic images of the doughnuts, Each tin has 10g of product so it’s going to last a while.

So the flavours of these are strawberry glaze, original glaze and chocolate sprinkles. To me the strawberry and chocolate smell very similar if not the same and the original does have a slight different scent to it, they all have a shimmer look in the tin but when applied to the lips this does not show up it doesn’t look like you have anything on and to me personally I can’t see any colour pigment coming from them.

 

On Boots UK website the description says “Give your lips a treat with this yummy Krispy Kreme Lip Balm Trio! This Christmas gift includes 3 x delicious smelling lip balms in 3 delicious tins! Including Strawberry Gloss, Original Glazed and Chocolate Sprinkles. They are perfectly sized to fit in your handbag or on your dressing table.
These lustrous Strawberry, Chocolate & Vanilla lip balms will make your lips shine. Apply a small amount to lips to get a sweet smile.

20171104_174923.jpgSo this is what the product looks like inside of the tin, as you can see there is a slight shimmer but nothing too dramatic. also please excuse the dent in the far left one the lid was a bitch to get off and I caught my nail in it *sighs* I feel you need to have a few swipes of this to pick up a reasonable amount of product as well.

my favourite one out of the trio is definitely the Strawberry Glaze just because of the colour mainly, I wouldn’t buy these products as an everyday lip balm but if you’re like me and enjoy quirky things like this then I definitely recommend, and especially for £7 you can’t grumble really. If you want to check these out click here http://www.boots.com/krispy-kreme-lip-balm-10232501 unfortunately I haven’t saw these stocked in other stores in the UK but if you have seen them anywhere else definitely let me know! and also make sure you check out the other products from the new range.

That’s all I have for you guys this week, I do hope you’ve enjoyed this post and if you have don’t forget to follow the blog so you get a notification when I post the next one. These next few weeks I will be giving the blog a little Christmas make over so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for that! some gift guides coming your way soon too. I’ll see you again next week with another blog post,

Real Techniques Brush Crush Review 

Hello! I’ve been wanting to post about these for quite some time now, and finally sitting here writing this I’m excited to share these with you. A few weeks back I was scrolling through Instagram when I came across these new brushes from Real Techniques. This is a brand by the twin sisters Sam and Nic Chapman who make up the YouTube channel Pixiwoo. Now I’ve been a fan of their brushes ever since I got into make up properly a few years back, they’re such good quality and quite a cheap price. They have lots of different sets that you can buy and they are the creators of the famous Complexion Sponge what every one loves! I’ll talk a little bit more about the other products further on but I’m bursting with excitement to tell you about these new brushes so I’m just going to get straight into it! The image I came across was this one 


And instantly I knew that I needed these in my collection, I mean anything with glitter has my attention right away. When I was finally able to draw my attention away from the glitter I realised this collection was limited edition which made me want them even more! On Superdrug there was an offer on ‘3 for 2’ which basically gets you a brush for free, I was able to get the 301 Foundation, 300 Powder and the 304 Fan Brush. When I opened the delivery I could not believe how luxurious these brushes felt, the bristles are so soft and the handles have a smooth texture almost like a gel coat over the glitter. 

The bristles also have an ombre shade of white and purple, and as you can see the foundation (far left) has a different colour wand and I believe the eye shadow one is also purple but I don’t have my hands on it. 

These retail from £9.99 – £12.99 So it’s roughly the same price you would pay for a standard brush from Real Techniques which for these being limited edition that’s an extremely good price! Here’s some individual photographs of the products below 

 

 

 

 

I’m not sure when these are on sale to in the future I’m guessing it’s just whilst stocks last? So if you are wanting some of these gorgeous brushes make sure you grab them quickly as I can’t see them being on shelves for much longer!!  Read More

Let’s have a chat…

Hello everyone and welcome back to another post! I do apologise for not posting these last few days I’ve been busy with personal things so, I did have a post scheduled to go up on Sunday evening but just my luck it somehow managed to disappear 😑 so I am very sorry about that. I have some post ideas which I’ll be doing over the next few weeks and then its my favourite time of the year… CHRISTMAS!! But for today I wanted to sit down have a little chat with you all as I don’t feel I have done this properly, so without further ado lets get into the post. 

The first thing I want to talk to you guys about is how frigging quick this year has gone 😱 I can’t believe that we’re in November already, when I was younger I used to wait all year round for Christmas and it seemed to go so slow but now I’m getting older I feel like you blink and the year has gone!! I went shopping a few weeks ago and walked into The Range *if you have one of those near you I reccomend going in they’re amazing* and the staff were starting to put the Christmas collection out and every time I see Christmas things in shops I always get excited. I think I get more excited now then what I did when I was a child if I’m being honest, I know we all love a bit of mulled wine at the Christmas markets don’t we? 😉 but seriously I feel like the end of the year you look back and realise time has went so quickly, a lot could have changed for some people and it does make you realise you shouldn’t hold back on things you want to do/say. I’ve been thinking about posting some gift guides from the end of this month as one thing I do love doing is searching for gifts to give my family and friends so I thought why not share my ideas with you guys? If that’s something you would like to see definitely let me know! 

Another thing I want to talk to you guys about is confidence yes that’s a scary word, well I think it is anyways. I think everyone has or had an issue with confidence some point in their life and its a big thing for some people to speak out about, it’s all good and well getting compliments and people telling you how great you’re doing but if you dont feel it and see it for yourself then nothing is going to seem to work right? Confidence can stop you doing so many things in life, even the smallest of things. Even though I post often, I still get nervous posting thinking that no one is going to read it or someone won’t like it but then I remember we all don’t like the same things and if we did it would be boring right? Sorry for the random bit in this post but I feel like I hardly see people speaking out about their confidence anymore and if people do then it might help others? I don’t know how to keep going on about this without rambling on 😂 if you guys want me to have more chatty subjects like this one I will try my hardest but remember I’m no agony aunt hahaha! 

Another thing I wanted to ask is if you would want more special fx posts? I know not everyone is interested in stuff like that but I had such a good response from the last post I did before Halloween, I was wanting to focus more on that side of things if that’s what you guys want? If not please tell me, like they wouldn’t be every week as they are extremely hard work to write the step by step guides but I know if you would read them I’d be willing to do more. It’s definitely something i would love to share more of with you all. 

Thank you for reading this post I do hope you’ve enjoyed it, sorry it’s so short and not really interesting I just wanted to update you all why I’ve been a bit absent and thought i would ask what you want from this blog, I’m going to be back to posting as normal from this weekend so make sure you’re all following so you get a notification next time I post! 

See you soon 😊

Clinique Great Skin 1-2-3 Intro Kit

Hello everyone welcome back to another blog post, I hope you’re all doing wonderful! I’m going to be telling you guys all about my new skin care routine which I’ve been using for about a week now so I feel it’s a good time for my opinion. I’ve never really had an issue with my skin even going through my teen years (even though I’m only 18) I did however have a huge break out when I was about 13 or 14 and I think everyone goes through the stages of acne, it’s normal and everyone had or has acne. I recently noticed that my skin felt really bumpy in certain places and I wasn’t sure what was going on, so me being that person who Google’s everything (bad thing to do) and I searched online for something that I could test out which would help me. I’ve always used the Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser, as my skin is super sensitive and this was the only one I found that didn’t irritate me. Along side this I also used the Simple Soothing Toner and up until recently they’ve done me good I’m not gonna deny that, but about 6 or 7 weeks ago I realised I was using these products and my skin seemed to be getting worse. So I decided that I was going to read up on different products as I feel you need to have something that can help with all of your skin care needs to get that healthy glow back. I done quizzes and everything and then I actually came across a website which for some reason I completely forgot about and that is clinique. I went onto their website and their products are a little pricey so I was a little bit inbetween thoughts whether or not to purchase something, but then I found a little quiz where you just enter a few details about yourself  and it comes up with products that is recommended for your skin type, and the best thing about this is there is 4 different skin type collections! It’s a simple and quick quiz that takes no more than 5 minutes and if you’re just curious you don’t even have to enter your email or sign up to get the results which is hassle free, the skin types are :

  • Very Dry To Dry
  • Dry Combination 
  • Combination Oily 
  • Oily 

The skin type I got was dry combination and I agreed with that, I’ve always suffered from really bad dry skin especially on my nose. When I was scrolling through the recommended products that came up I saw this little kit which was only £10 and not gonna lie I was quite shocked that the intro kit was so cheap, I know clinique is a very luxurious brand and I had heard of so many good reviews of their skin care so I thought why not? 

As soon as my kit arrived I was so excited to try it out, also as well as it only costing £10 I also got a free sample of my choice at the checkout and FREE DELIVERY WOOOOO it keeps getting better and better!! 😂 When i opened the box I was surprised to see that the 3 products were a decent size as well. In the kit you get : 

    • * Liquid Facial Soap Mild, 1.0 fl. oz. / 30ml

 

    • * Clarifying Lotion Twice A Day Exfoliator 2, 2.0 fl. oz. / 60ml

 

    • * Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+™, 1.0 fl. oz. / 30ml

 

They advise you to use these products 2 times a day and takes 3 minutes, so use these morning and night but if you forget or only use once a day don’t worry it’s not the end of the world! 

Step 1 –  

20171021_171810.jpgSo first we are staring with the liquid facial soap, to me this hasn’t got any scent to it and it’s really refreshing. I dampen my face before and then I put a small amount of this on my hands and then gentley rub all around my face, then I rinse off the product. This is my favourtie from the trio so far as I feel it’s the most refreshing product and especially in the morning when I look like something from the walking dead its a god send! 

STEP 2 – 

20171021_171827.jpgI’m still not 100% sure on this one just yet, I do feel like it makes my skin feel more nourished after using the soap before hand but the smell on this thing to me is far to chemically, you know the hand sanitizer that’s in hospitals? That’s what this stuff smells like to me not gonna lie. But besides that it feels very cooling and refreshing and I’m still going to keep using it and hopefully I can get used to the smell, i only place a small amount of this onto a cotton pad and wipe all over the face.

Step 3 –

20171021_171835.jpgI have to admit this was the step I was most excited for, I’ve heard so many good things about the moisturiser from clinique so I was looking forward to finally trying this for myself. With this a little bit goes a long way which makes me think this little tube will last a while! *bonus* It’s so moisturizing and again doesn’t have a scent to it just like the soap. When I first started to rub it in I was a little bit shocked because it seemed to be really thick and didn’t look like it was rubbing in so I had one of those “oh shit” moments but then I realised it was sinking into the skin and I was very relieved haha! I’ve also reason to believe you can buy this product in gel form which sounds interesting. 

Overall I think these products have been improving my skin, the redness has gone down and I’ve noticed nearly all the little bumps have calmed down and more or less gone. For £10 it’s an absolute bargain and I’m so glad to have come across it, If you’re looking for new skin care products or just fancy a change head on over to their website here ➡️ https://m.clinique.co.uk/blue_ocean/intro_choose.tmpl and take the skin diagnosis quiz see what products are recommended for you and then maybe treat yourself to a little kit! I’m super impressed with the outcome so far and such little product goes a very long way, its definitely worth checking out. 


Before I end this post I just wanted to tell you guys about a brand I recently came across called ” Infinity Of London ” which has some amazing jewellery pieces at great prices, I was recently contacted from them letting me know there is a sale on for new customers when you get to the checkout use the code “new20″ and you get 20% off your order! Also check them out here on Twitter: Take a look at INFINITY LONDON (@infintyoflondon): https://twitter.com/infintyoflondon?s=09 and their website is https://www.infinitybracelets.co.uk/

Thank you so much for reading this post I do hope you’ve enjoyed it, let me know if you use any clinique products in the comments down below or what products work best for you. I thought I would try posting mid week as well as the weekend just to see how I get on with it so yeah, that’s all I have for you guys in the post, thank you so much for reading if you’ve enjoyed it don’t forget to follow the blog so you get a notification next time I post and I’ll see you again soon! 😊

The Beginning…

Hello!

I’m very excited to be writing this first blogpost on my new page, about a year ago I did sit down and start a blog which didn’t work out hence this new one, I feel like when I started the other I didn’t have that motivation to do the posts and if I’m being completely honest I forgot it was there most of the time. I’m not going to go into to much detail as to why I didn’t enjoy the previous page, but I’m hoping this time round I can actually stick to this one as I am planning to put a lot of time and dedication into it.

The main reason the previous blog didn’t work out was simply because as I just said I didn’t have the motivation, and that comes down to my anxiety. Its not something that I want to talk a lot about because you never know who is actually reading this on the other side of the screen and I’m a very private person when It comes to personal issues, maybe in the future I will find that confidence to post about it in depth but for now I’m doing this blog to just focus on writing to the world about things I love.

So things that I’m looking into posting about is Make-Up,  DIY, Product Reviews, your basic blogger things I guess, I’m not sure if there will be a new post every week I think for a while they will be all over the place, if you do have any ideas of what you would like to see from me please get in touch in the comments and I’ll see what I can do. If you’re reading this I just want to say a huge thank you for taking the time to read (probably) one of the most boring blog posts you’ve ever read haha! I hope you do come back and read the next one.

see you soon,
