BEAUTY FAVOURITES – SEPTEMBER '17

BEAUTY FAVOURITES – SEPTEMBER '17

I’ve tested out so much makeup this month and have come across lots of new favourites – and a few bits that aren’t quite my favourite – so I’m looking forward to sharing the best products I’ve come across! For all the products I’ve picked […]

LOVE ME BEAUTY – SEPTEMBER '17

LOVE ME BEAUTY – SEPTEMBER '17

Oh, the hassle I’ve had this month with Love Me Beauty (hence the late unboxing). First, they didn’t send out my order days after I’d placed it, then I received an email saying one of the products I had ordered was out of stock. I […]

I HEART MAKEUP ROSE GOLD CHOCOLATE PALETTE REVIEW

I HEART MAKEUP ROSE GOLD CHOCOLATE PALETTE REVIEW

NEW IN: TAMBEAUTY

HOW TO WEAR: NEON EYESHADOW

HOW TO WEAR: NEON EYESHADOW

Welcome to How To Wear, where I take products a little out-of-the-ordinary and show you how you can wear them every day! When you picture neon eyeshadow, do you think 80s, or 18-year-olds at a rave? Exactly. Not an everyday-friendly eyeshadow, but anything can be […]

W7 DELICIOUS PALETTE REVIEW

W7 DELICIOUS PALETTE REVIEW

W7 aren’t really that widely heard-of, considering they don’t sell their products in the usual places. They do, however, have their own stores (called W7 Beauty Outlet) across the UK, which sells both their products and a mixture of other brands at discounted – outlet […]

MAKEUP REVOLUTION ULTRA COOL GLOW HIGHLIGHT PALETTE

Makeup Revolution are dropping new releases left, right and centre this month! The same time as I ordered the Flawless 4 I spotted the new Ultra Cool Glow highlight palette on the TAMBeauty website and as it is made for paler people, I just had […]
