Beauty Box Loves

So here it is as promised some of my favourite goodies from both my Glossybox & Boudoir Prive/Joliebox

Permanently in my makeup bag are Rose & Co Rose Petal Salve (this is an amazing salve which clears up dry lips ridiculously fast), New CID I-gloss in Babydoll (Always a conversation starter when I whip this badboy out because it lights up! Plus it has just the right consistency for my liking), Joliebox Concealer Brush (My go to concealer brush, its a bitch to clean because its quite firm and I worry about ruining it but other than that I love it!)

I would never have bought these items themselves but have always wanted to try each brand so obviously I was happy when I received them.

These guys have made it into my regular bathing/hair routine. I will most certainly be repurchasing all of them!

Well we all knew I would love receiving Nail Polish didn't we? In fact I was always a bit gutted that there wasn't a polish in every box! Nail Polish Beauty boxes... A new concept maybe?   

Not pictured because they bit the dust a long time ago but have made a lasting impression are:

Murad: Time Release Blemish Cleanser
Dead Sea Spa Magik Salt Brush
Korres Quince Body Butter
Green People Fruitful Nights (seriously wish this was cheaper so I could buy it full size)
HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette (ok I do need to use this so I saved it and gave it to Michelle on her recent visit. It is amazing on her!)
Robert Piquet Calypso perfume
Stila Smudge Proof Eyeliner
Monu Recovery Balm (Amazing as a makeup primer I definitely have noticed a decline in my skin since this ran out recently)
Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment

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…

Battle of the pale bronzers: Benefit Hoola Lite vs Wet 'n Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Have I ever mentioned to you that I am pale?  Well of course I havementioned many times over the history of Faeriwood that I've been pigmentally challenged my whole life and - despite flirting with tanning every now and again -  I wholly embrace the pale. I have, however, always been a bronzing queen when it comes to my makeup. Whether I am using cream products or powders I always have felt healthier with a bit of a glow but I hate the orangey-ness of most bronzing products! It’s a catch-22 when deciding which one is more important.  For years I have been loyal to two products. Nars Multiple for a cream face (read here why I don’t believe in the term contouring for chubby cheeks) and Benefit Hoola for a powder face. Both are quite dark so they are used often but sparingly. This is why I was delighted when two new products designed for pale skin came on to the market. 

Wet N’ Wild Coloricon Reserve your Cabana*

Reserve Your Cabana is the best budget beauty bronzer for pale skin. Key word…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x
