Festive Gift Ideas & Bargain Alert: Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot



Every year it's a tough choice between Benefit and Soap & Glory for my favourite festive Gift Sets. Both are usually super cute with great range but this year I think Benefit have the edge with their Sweet Shoppe range. The tin cases have been designed to look like little houses, complete with removable roof for portability, so that when you collect them (and you WILL want to collect them) it looks like a little village. Amazing.


My personal favourite amongst the Benefit range is Cheeky Sweet Spot. I picked it up last time I visited House Of Fraser and I'm in love. Not only is it packed with gorgeous blushes, the best bronzer ever, Hoola, & the now discontinued Bella Bamba but at £29.50 it's also a flippin bargain that's so ridiculous it actually made me do math. 

And then it made me make a spreadsheet to display the math because I couldn't believe just how great it was. 

Don't believe me? 


BAM £73.02!!! That's what you save when you pick up this beauty and its a saving I've thoroughly enjoyed making.

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

So far I'm in love with Cupcake Queen, Halo & Caberet. My least favourite is Cutie Pie which despite 3 coats is the sheerest polish I've ever come across!!













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…
