Makeup Revolution Scandalous Lipsticks



I'm not sure what possessed me to buy these at 1AM a few weeks ago. Maybe it was the pay day excitement of restocking up on foundation. Maybe it was the boredom of the pinks and nudes that all just seem to blur in to one another these days. Perhaps I thought I'd get adventurous and come up with some amazing avant-gard look and become a famous Instagram MUA... 1am purchases are often filled with idealism and self delusion.

Whatever the reason, when the lipsticks themselves arrived I was a bit meh. The colours are amazing and I've heard awesome things about Makeup Revolution so I was expecting big things. Instead I got an exact copy of the MUA packaging and a similar formula although perhaps slightly more buttery leaving them more sheer. Not bad for their £1 price tag and it wouldn't stop me buying them but I'll not rush out to empty the Superdrug shelves just yet. I was happy with MUA as a brand. I didn't need another carbon copy. 


Makeup Revolution - Immortal (Blue) & Felony (Yellow)



When swatching I noticed that they looked like the colours of the Swedish flag so I played about. And then Sweden, who are my ultimate favourite Eurovision country, won Eurovision last night! This is definitely kismet, this post was destined to be published today!

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted!  We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you". Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious groun

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low
