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…

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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!!

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!
