June "Freebies"

So this month there are some amazing magazine giveaways and whilst I never usually buy Beauty magazines (I find Blogs more informative & less likely to make me want to starve myself for the next 3 months) I couldn't resist this month's offerings

Instyle: Body shop £5 gift card

Red: Jemma Kid Lip Gloss worth £14 (I got the Coral)

Bliss: eyes & lips palette 
(see swatches below)

Mizz: eyeshadow collection all about eyes
(see swatches below)

Marieclaire: Inika Mineral eyeliner & shadow worth a combined £23
(see swatches below)


The Mizz & Bliss palettes are obviously aimed at teens & the shadows are quite chalky (they're not exactly premium quality) but the colours are cute & very summery. With the help of a decent primer to make them last the day I can honestly say I'll probably wear these! In fact I wore the Mizz trio to work today.

I absolutely love the Inika eye liner & shadow. Minerals are very en vogue at the minute & these are a great example. Very pigmented, lovely texture & possibly the most amazing concept for an eye liner I've ever seen... A sharpener in the lid!!

The only downside to this is that lid doesn't even come close to being tight on the pencil so you wont want this lying loose in your bag but what a great idea! 

And then of course the one we were all waiting for...

Glamour: Benefit sample sizes worth a combined £28
I've never used Posietint or Benetint before (am I the only one who finds a blood red stain daunting?) so of course I picked these up asap. Looking forward to experimenting with them.




Also this month Harpers Bazaar are giving away 3 Leighton Denny Nail Polishes worth £11 each (A red, orange & nude/mushroomy colour) which shock of all horrors I managed to resist!! Quite proud of myself on that one.

Anyway thats all for now, I've got ALOT of magazines to go and read!

  2. Like yourself, I don't really buy magazines, I think its a mix between lack of funds and I want to buy everything I see featured in the magazine. but the freebies where amazing, I may keep my eyes pealed for them form now on!

    on another note, I CANT believe they still do Mizz such memory's!

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me.

As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes.
I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that.
Until now.
Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have another …

Bring on the Hype

Some products in the world just don't live up to the hype. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is not one of those products... for me at least. I was really nervous the first time I used it, you hear horror stories of products burning your skin and Liz Earle is so expensive compared to what I'm used to buying on the high street I was a bit scared to invest. But when Katrina from Sugafix (who has literally become a Fairy Suga-mother to us FABB girlies and I love her muchly!) said that Liz Earle had offered to send us some samples I quickly snapped up the chance! And I'm very happy to say I loved. I loved the tingles on my skin when I first applied it. I loved genuinely feeling that my skin was clean. And I loved that combined with my Monu Recovery Balm my skin was looking flawless!

Then the sample ran out. and it was a sad day because I was on a spending ban and couldn't justify it when I had so many other products to use up. Then things got all kismet. My spending ban was t…
