April / Love Me Beauty Box

This month i signed up to 'Love Me Beauty' I used to subscribe to 'BirchBox' but i just wasn't impressed with the products they were sending me, and i found myself never using the products, so I stopped it and looked for another box which would suite me. 

I'm sure your all familiar with all these beauty subscriptions, but if your not ill just recap on what it is quickly. Unlike other beauty boxes 'Love me beauty' allows you to pick from 3 menus, so you will know exactly what you are getting each month, Its only £10 a month plus p&p which adds up to £12.95 if I'm correct, its definitely worth it, I picked box 1 which I thought would suit me the most.

Neal & Wolf Smoothing Blow Dry Balm 
 Being a hair care freak, this was the product I was most looking forward to try, you put this on towel tried hair which then helps tangled frizzy hair which i really need as my hair gets so frizzy its ridiculous lol. It has a hydrating wheat protein complex which  provides moisture, which i also need! eeeek I'm so excited to try it.

Redken Colour Extreme conditioner 
I was so excited to receive this as I've never tried anything from redken before and i love a good conditioner, Its for colour treated hair which is perfect for me as I dye my hair a lot. I've heard great things about this brand too.

Betty Hula the secret wonder oil
Its a moisturising oil suitable for any skin types and it boosts the skins natural skin moisture barrier to promote radiance, whilst the roller ball works to encourage circulation through gentle massage. That was a mouthful lol. Its great for dry skin, stretch marks, scarring and for soothing sunburn. I have never heard of this brand before so I'm very interested to give this a go and see how this works on my skin. I just had a quick smell, and omg it smells sooo good.

Models Own in coral reef 
 I love Models Own nail varnishes and when i received this colour i fell in love, its my kind of colour, perfect for summer, i will be wearing this a lot.

Hello fresh gift card
This is something a little bit extra they put in the box which i didn't expect,  Its a company that deliver fresh ingredients to your door so you can make healthy meals at home, ill definitely be having a look into this.

Overall I'm so happy with this Box and I'm definitely sticking with 'Love Me Beauty' 
Are you subscribed to this box?

Mini Mac Haul

Who doesn't love a haul? Even though its only 3 things i thought id share with you what i brought from mac. Ive been wanting these 3 products for soooo so long, i caved in and JUST went and bought them online wooops,  just an excuse for more makeup really :) It didn't come cheap either lol!

Mac Pro long wear concealer - I'm always looking for a new concealer as i have really black under eye circles :( so I'm always looking for high coverage to get rid of them, I've heard amazing things about it and loads of people have it so I'm hoping it works for me.

Mac Strobe cream - I love having dewy skin and I new this would be perfect for me, I've seen  shaaanxo use this on youtube and she said its amazing, and gives that nice dewy look and moisturises your skin too, apparently the Loreal Lumi Magique primer is a dupe for this? so I may do a post on a comparison!

Mac Studio Fix Powder - I needed a new powder as I'm not really keen on my bourjois healthy balance, I love full coverage so i thought why not try this out.

Have you tried any of these 3 products out? if so what do you think?

Loreal Collection Privee - Cheryl Cole's Nude

Its very hard to find the perfect lighting to show you the colour so hope you can see, sorry!

I am LOVING this lipstick so far I've worn it so many times, i thought id share my favourite nude lipstick with you, i have plenty more nude lipsticks but i find myself always going back to this one. 

Cheryl's nude is a very wearable pinky brown, the formal is light and contains a hint of gloss so its super comfortable to wear, the formula is creamy and i think this lipstick is nice between a matte and a shiny finish, It comes in a black packaging with gold embracing which i quite like, it doesn't dry the lips although mine look very dry in this photo wooops, i hope you can kind of see how the colour is like on as i find it helpful when you can actually see what its like on the person, i find i have to apply quite abit on to get the true colour, but it doesn't look cakey or look like you have too much on. I've yet to try the other nude shades from this range, but this by far is my favourite everyday nude! 

You can get it from BOOTS HERE AT £8.19

Whats your favourite lipstick?

New Look Haul

Yay for my first ever fashion haul lol, I have been putting off doing this post for a couple of weeks as i had no idea how to set it up, so i thought for my first one ill have them layed out on the bed and hopefully soon enough ill feel comfortable to wear some outfits for some future posts :)

I haven't been into new look for about a year, i don't know why, i think i had just gone off it for a bit, but i finally went back in and literally fell in love with the whole store, the clothes were so pretty, i could of brought the whole shop haha. I only picked up 3 tops, i thought i should be sensible and quickly by them before i end up buying loads of more things. I thought these would look so cute on especially the mint green top perfect for summer, grey check top perfect for day to day wear with jeans, and the denim shit also great for a casual day out with leggings and converses, i love wearing simple outfits.

The links below will take you straight to the page if anyones interested :)

It would be lovely if you could let me know how you do clothing hauls because i haven't got a clue, and send me links so i can check them out :)

Maybelline BROWDrama Review

Ive never really been into brow gels as I've tried soooo many, hardly none of them keep my eyebrows in place, they are all over the place in less than 10minutes lol, but i had seen so many reviews on the maybelline one, i just went and bought it as you do lol.

I love that its a tint gel form, it gives my brows such great shape and colour. Its very EASY to apply and dries quite quickly, some people aren't really keen on the wand but it works fine for me :) My eye brows look so natural too.

My eyebrows aren't the prettiest, so i need something which is going to keep them in shape, this does the trick extremely well, its reasonable priced at £4.99. I went for medium brown. I hardly need to use an eye brow pencil on a day to day basis anymore but if I'm going out in the evening then i will.  Eyebrows make a huge difference to the face so depending on what your looking for it may work for you.

If your looking for something reasonable priced and wanting to keep your eyebrows under control i highly recommend it.

What do you guys think of this product?

Sleek Blush by 3 Palette (Review and Swatches)

I lovee sleek makeup, the brand is pretty amazing and such great quality.

The blushes come in a very sleek and compact packaging which is basically how Sleek Makeup products look like. I love that even though this is a palette, it is not bulky and it fits perfectly in my makeup bag!
The palette is also perfect for travelling because it is light and you are already carrying 3 blushes with you!
I love how the entire lid is a mirror, the thing that I don’t like about the packaging of this palette is it’s texture. You can easily get this packaging dirty and my finger prints are all over it and very visible.
These shades are perfect for spring/summer. The palette is not expensive and you get 3 blushes, 2 of them are matte and the middle one is shimmery.

Crochet is a orange bright matte colour, I was so shocked when i saw how orange it was but once you blend it out, it looks really nice on the cheeks, it can be used as a highlighter too.

Guipure is is such a gorgeous colour, my favourite out of the 3, it a lovely shimmery rose gold colour, a little goes a long way, just dab a little bit of this blush on the cheeks and it will give you a nice glow!

Chantilly is a pinky coral colour , it can look quite strong once you apply it but with lots of blending in it gives you a nice flush on the cheeks.
As you can see, they are heavily pigmented, a little goes a long way with these blushes! I got this at just £9.99 from Superdrug.

Have you tried sleek before?
