Make Up Revolution - Golden Sugar Review

I can't live without blush and if I did i'd look like a ghost! Those of you who haven't yet tried Make Up Revolution...please do, this palette is a good place to start! The brand it's self is incredibly affordable and yet some of the best quality product I have ever used. This time around I'm reviewing the Golden Sugar Blush palette and I honestly fell in love with it before even using it. 

If you are looking for a golden goddess look, search no more! 

It's gorgeous to look at, the colours in this palette are immensely lush! The 6 shades are each incredibly pigmented which you don't often find in bargain makeup - the quality is that of something a lot more pricey. 

What I really love about this palette is the combination of bronzer, highlighter and blush - great for those that are always on the move as its' all in one and ready to go or if you are looking for a diverse set of shades this is it! 

Shade breakdown: (See below for HD pictures)
1 - A nice silky highlight, great for brightening up the cheeks for a dewy glow.
2 - Shimmery sugary pink which creates a nice touch of colour on the cheek, a little goes a long way! 
3 - Similar to the second shade but not as shimmery nice for a slightly toned down look 
4- Slightly orange in colour good use as a contour but may not work on paler skin tones, has a nice warm feel to the shade. 
5 - A nice light satin finish great use as a contour or bronzer
6 - Beautiful shimmer to the shade really gives my cheeks a dewy sense of colour 
7 - Has a coppery bronze finish nice as a bronzer has a slight hint of orange to it 
8 - A matte shade good for contouring it's slightly dark for me so no need to use too much but very diverse. 

Overall I am a huge fan of this brand it's affordable so if you are on a budget there is no need to miss out on quality and it's also very current, a easy to use palette with shades that help you create the latest looks.

I hope this post has been helpful and pretty to look at! If you haven't already, don't forget to follow my blog so you don't miss out!

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Scrub Review

Glycolic and Salicylic acid ingredients in skin care have become more and more popular due to their cleansing and renewing properties. I remember starting out using the Alpha H liquid gold and thinking wow, amazing. 

Nip + Fab have a great and vast Glycolic range and I thought I'd give the scrub a try. I do love a good face scrub as my skin can look dull at times. This scrub contains 3% Glycolic and Salicylic acids to help brighten and renew and after using this product for 3 weeks I have noticed that my skin feels that little bit more refined. This products claims to work deep into pores to polish and reduce blemishes. Now, I am a sufferer of blemishes and they are constant. I am forever looking for a product to aid in the reduction of those nasty blemishes that can make me feel so self conscious. 

Using this product has given my skin a new lease of life, my skin feels more brighter and really aids me with the application of my make up as my skin doesn't feel so uneven after using it. What's great is the consistency of the product as it doesn't feel too course on the skin as some scrubs I have previously used really feel as if they are too rough. I would almost say it has the qualities of a at home microdermabrasion treatment.....What's even better is its citrus smell, Yum! I'll let you into a little secret, you can use it on dry elbows and knees for a quick fix! 

I use this twice a week but that can be reduced to just once or up to three times. I wouldn't recommend any more as you can damage your skin and not see any results. 

Let me know what you think!

Loreal Elvive: Re Balancing Shampoo

Happy Sunday readers! 

Today's post is on Loreal's new Extraordinary Clay range. Now, I'm the kind of girl that is constantly trying out new ranges when it comes to haircare and although finding some decent ranges this one appealed to me. I was standing in boots and thought 'oh pretty colour' - I'm a sucker for packaging but in all seriousness what this range has to offer is even more important. The ends of my hair eventually just dry out no matter what I do to treat them, something I've accepted but reading about the clay shampoo and conditioner there was a gleam of hope! I also have the issue with oily roots, I have to wash my hair everyday (I know, terrible) Hence why my hair probably gets so dry. 

 Extraordinary clay claims to combat each of those headaches! Taken from the loreal website this is what you are expected to see ...
• Scalp feels deeply purified for 72 hours with freshness and light, lifted roots.

• Dry hair feels hydrated right to the ends for fluid, free-flowing lengths.
• Revitalises the hair with softness, shine and bounce.

The images below were before and after washing, as you can see my morning hair is brittle looking and dry. This was after about a week and a half of using the range and treatments.

BTW...I have only edited my face...My skin was badddd! But the hair hasn't been touched up. 

After just the first use my hair actually felt seriously clean leaving a lovely scent (that my fiancĂ© kept complementing me on :) - so that was already a great start!) As I was using the conditioner I genuinely felt my hair becoming soft, I'm not even exaggerating! But the real test was coming out of my vicious OCD washing regime, did I go a day? Yes! I actually did, I went to work without washing my hair and it felt and looked clean - for me that was a challenge in its self. Not only did my hair feel clean it was manageable and sleek. 

If you are struggling with finding something that is suited to your advanced hair needs I would suggest giving this range a go.

Let me know how you get on!

The Next Beauty Blogger Event

What a privilege to be a part of, the Next beauty event was the place to be on a cold Wednesday evening!

It was the first event I have attended and it was a joy, not only was it filled with pretty things but also filled with extremely pretty people. Being able to attend such a special event made me realise how much I actually had a love for writing about all things beautiful. The location was at Ice Tank London and it was pleasure on the eyes.

I photographed some of the lovely products that Next have to offer and they were at affordable prices too.  This was not about another big brand jumping on the beauty product bandwagon but each product seemed thought about and current. With Next's 'Make Me Beautiful' range its all a girl could want.

With blushers ranging from £8 that really shows how affordable their products are in comparison to similar products in this very expensive beauty world. You can even pick up 4 nail polishes for just £10!!! Amazing.

The sleek packing really appealed to me - It's simple, nothing over the top just modern and poignant. So what about quality? well this was backed by the amazing Lydia Millen who displayed 2 live tutorials starting with a every day neutral glowing look to a gorgeous red lipped night time glam look.

Lips - The lip sticks were well pigmented and appeared creamy in texture, fantastic quality especially for the price. Not a bad range of colours either.

Eyes - The eye pallets were well pigmented, each teamed with complimenting shades and appeared very easy to blend. You can create many looks without having to pay out a shed load and you don't have to be a professional to use them! The Brow pallets are very current as we all know that brows are so now! Luckily having matte shades allow for the natural look and a great selection to match many tones.

I could talk all night at how much of a fantastic experience it was, although not a well known blogger I felt important and seeing these great products in the flesh makes me want them all, temptation definately kicked in! I didn't get to pick up a goodie bag but they were filled with some of the gorgeous range and to be fair I wouldn't mind buying them.

I would suggest having a sneaky peak at Next's site, not only great to treat yourself but fantastic gift ideas.....I won't tell :)
