I’ve only been blogging for four years, but within those four years blogging has come so far. Don’t worry this isn’t going to be a post talking about the ‘good old days’ as I personally love how much blogging has progressed over the last four years but that’s another post entirely. When I first started blogging, there was more emphasis on the quality of content rather than the images but now it’s very much all about the photos especially with social media and the likes of Bloglovin’. One of the age old blogger discussions is…

I had absolutely no idea that La Roche Posay did mascara.. I thought they just had an extensive skincare range, and I wasn’t alone if the comments on my Instagram post are anything to go by. The La Roche Posay Respectissime range was created as they discovered 85% of women use mascara regularly, with 54% of the women claiming they couldn’t live without it but half of those that regularly use mascara suffer from discomfort due to sensitive eyes and eyelids. The Respectissime range offers protection and tolerance as well as the cosmetic benefits of mascara,…

The release of the PIXI Double Cleanse back in January was one of the most hotly anticipated skincare launches in a long, long time.

The three primers include the following; the NARS Pore & Shine Control Primer (for oily skin and enlarged pores), the NARS Radiance Primer SPF35 (for lacklustre skin) and the NARS Smooth & Protect Primer SPF50 (a blurring, invisible primer) and I…

The ELF HD Undereye Setting Powder £4.50 has been on my beauty wishlist for years but I’ve never bitten the bullet and purchased it via eBay due to the considerable markup. Even when ELF used to have a UK website a couple of years ago, they never stocked the ELF HD Undereye Setting Powder even though I pleaded with them multiple times as I’d been dying to try it. I already own the ELF HD Setting Powder which I really like but the packaging is on the bulky side so the compact packaging of the undereye powder was…

When it comes to packaging, Giorgio Armani really are one of the most luxurious brands which beautifully decadent packaging and product formulas to match. On the 15th of February, Giorgio Armani revealed their pop-up store in Covent Garden where they showcase the brand’s stunning makeup universe. The Armani Box Pop-Up Store features red and black colours with a pretty huge gorilla statue to welcome visitors as they enter the store, which was reproduced by Italian artist Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba from the gorilla which Mr Armani has in his lounge in Milan. The resin gorilla was…
