June Favourites


How is it that another month - a whole month - has flown by? June seems to have barely greeted us and now it's already bidding us farewell. Scattered with some horrific stories, the country overall hasn't had the best June, so for that reason I'm glad to see the end of it. Plus that heat-wave last week was just a big old no-no for the pregnant among us. However, June has been pretty special for me, in that I've tried, and found, some amazing new products this month. Some which I've loved using and wish I'd known about sooner.

Falling In Love With Buxom Cosmetics


I remember Buxom Cosmetics from the very first time they were on the shelves here in the UK. Known for their sultry and seductive plumping lip products, they were one of the first brands I tried when I was attempting to get fuller looking lips. However it wasn't meant to be for Buxom at the time and I don't remember when it was exactly, but suddenly you couldn't get their products here anymore. When I was in New York last summer I bought a couple of bits in Sephora, which reminded me just how much I loved the brand. So when they launched their UK come-back this year, I was pretty excited to see what they had lined up.

MAC x Steve J & Yoni P - The Most Fun You'll Have With MAC Packaging, Guaranteed!


When it comes to their limited edition collections, MAC are well known for knocking it out of the park with their ranges. Not just with the products, but with the packaging too. It's one of the things that makes me fall in love with their one-off ranges actually, I mean, did you see the Mariah Carey packaging? Goals. And then there's the fun they have with ranges like Trolls and Vibe Tribe too. If anyone can absolutely nail a limited edition range, it's MAC - and one of their latest - MAC X Steve J & Yoni P is no exception.

The New Addition To My GlamGlow Collection - Gravitymud


You know how much I adore the GlamGlow masks if you follow me on social media - literally every time anyone asks about face mask recommendations, I'm there shouting about GlamGlow. Any skin complaint? I'll likely recommend GlamGlow for it, because within their range there's a mud mask for everyone. I featured a couple of the masks a few months ago here, and have still been using them religiously, and I just replaced my empty Supermud pot because I use it so often and can't be without it now.

First Look & Swatches - Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette!


I can't tell you how excited I am to be writing this! As soon as I saw the pictures of the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette a few weeks ago, I knew I'd be getting it. Not just because I am a slave to every eyeshadow palette that Urban Decay release, but also because the colours in the palette are stunning and completely up my street. Warm tones are my thang. The pre-release caused a lot of us beauty addicts stress this week, mostly due to the fact that it sold out in minutes first time round, but I tried to personally help as many people out as I could, sharing links etc - because everyone who wants this, deserves to have it in their make-up stash. And fortunately the lovely people at Urban Decay reloaded stock half an hour after their first batch sold out, so most people who wanted it, managed to get it. (For those of you who didn't, it officially launches online on July 27th.)

Here's How You Should Be Using Your Beauty Blender


Beauty sponges have become a key make-up tool in recent years. Every beauty brand seems to have their own version of this application essential nowadays and you can even find budget versions for only a couple of pounds - meaning just about everyone has at least attempted to apply their make-up with one. However the original, the one the others want to be, will always be the Beauty Blender.

First Look - Rimmel Cara Camo Limited Edition Collection


This one is hot off the presses people! Rimmel have launched a brand new and totally limited edition collection exclusively at Superdrug! With the face of the range being Cara Delevingne, the collection is called Cara Camo and is bang on trend for this summer because yep, you guessed it - it's shades are all styled on camouflage print and patterns...but of course, also with the trademark Rimmel Union Jack as a bit of a twist.

The Best Of The Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palettes


Eyeshadow palettes are the way to this girls heart.

That's no secret. What is a secret though (from my boyfriend) is my collection, which grows all the time and will likely continue to do so until I run out of space to stash everything. Even then, I'd never stop buying them, trying them or loving them. Thus is the life of an eyeshadow palette addict. My latest additions are no exception and are now proudly sitting in the pride of place in my make-up drawers, all showing off their sheer gorgesousness, just calling me to use them all the time. Yep, I'm talking about the Smashbox Cover Shot palettes.
