Weekly Make Up Bag #10

Very excited to choose the make up bag for this week because this is my holiday make up bag. We're off to Seville for  few days! Whilst packing up my wash bag, skincare and make up for the holiday I couldn't help but feel I was choosing quite basically as I know there's a Sephora just down the road - and hey, if I run out or have forgotten something, I'll just go and have to buy something new, won't I?!
* Foundation - I've chosen a sample of the Lancôme Teinte Idole in Shade 02 Lys Rose. This will definitely last for the duration of our short break. * CC Crème - Erborian CC Crème - Loving this little sample and will definitely be looking to repurchase a full size. It gives a fantastic light coverage and makes my skin look fresh and healthy. * Under Eye Concealer - Inglot - Will be using this until it's used up. * Powder - TonyMoly Cats Wink - This is a great compact powder for touch-ups. * Bronzer - Nars Laguna Cream Stick - Have enjoyed wearing bronzer in the pa…

Weekly Make Up Bag #9

Last week's items were mostly chosen to see whether I wanted to keep or de-clutter. I ended up keeping the Hikari eye shadow quad but decided to de-clutter the Pop Beauty eye shadow trio as it was just too chalky and shimmery for me. I also already thought that I might end up de-cluttering the Bobbi Brown cream eye shadow stick but I wanted to give it one last chance. It only took one use for me to realise that this cream stick just wasn't for me. Another switcheroo was the Touch in Sol foundation that I only bought last week online. I loved the concept and the application but it was just far too light for me, so I swapped it for my Missha BB Cream.
* CC Crème - New - Erborian - I received this as one of my Latest in Beauty choices last week. It's a pretty amazing product and conceals, brightens, primes and blurs pores all in one go. This is my first CC Crème and I admit that some of the 'alphabet creams' are confusing to me, so I was glad to get the chance to try one…

Unboxing ~ Look Fantastic Beauty Box March 2018

Always very happy to receive my Look Fantastic Beauty Box and it's one where I intentionally avoid seeing any 'sneak peeks' as I'm usually delighted with the contents every month. In the past, I've tended to 'go off' a beauty subscription box after a few months as they always seem to get weaker. Not so with the Look Fantastic box, but there have been a couple where I haven't been as excited at first glance. I'm going to rate this beauty box a little differently this month - giving a first impressions/excitement score for when you first open the box and a score for the design of the box, as I've realised that this actually has more of an impact on me than I thought it did. Also, I'm going to score each item for their desirability level and also a score for their performance after first use (I won't be scoring items I haven't tried out yet)! Here's this month's box! Box Design - 2/5 - I think I prefer the usual plainer boxes than t…

Unboxing ~ Latest in Beauty February 2018

It's been a couple of months since there have been enough products to tempt me into ordering a Latest in Beauty Box. But recently there was a run of Jurlique products on offer and my interest was well and truly piqued! I opted for the Beauty Enthusiast Box - which is six items for £15.00 (inclusive of P+P) BUY HERE. No extra surprises this time and just one sample ( a tea bag!).
Jurlique Nutri-Define Refining Foaming Cleanser This applies as a lovely rich cream, which has tiny exfoliating polishing beads and then as you add a bit of water it lathers up into an intensely luxe foam. Some foams can leave your skin feeling tight and dry but this one left my skin feeling clean but moisturised too.
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist I'd previously tried out a small sample of this mist and loved it. Although this was a couple of years ago and at the time I didn't get the gist of the mist! Back then I thought it was a make up setting spray but it didn't work in that way for me so I u…

February Empties

Not as much progress this month with the empties. Skincare and Make up * Ziaja Micellar Water - I used this most mornings for cleansing but it does slightly irritate my eyes so I don't use it for eye make up removal. * Holika Holika - Aloe Facial Cleansing Foam - After buying this last year I realised that I had a bit of an intolerance to Aloe Vera, so I put this in the shower for the rest of the family to use up. * This Works - In Transit Camera Close Up Mask, Moisturiser and Primer in One - Not an empty but a de-clutter. Tried this out as a mask, moisturiser and primer - none of it worked and I don't want to waste anymore time on a bad product! * Eau Thermal Avene - Extremely gentle lotion cleanser - I bought this last winter when my skin was extra sensitive in the cold weather. It's interesting to note that this winter I haven't suffered at all with sensitive skin, however cold it gets. That must be testament to the products I'm using! * DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil - Thi…

Spacemasks Review

I picked up a box of five Space Masks last summer when there was so much hype about them online.

You can buy a box of 5 Spacemasks for £15 plus P+P HERE You can also buy an individual Spacemask for £3.50 from Lobella Loves My interest was initially piqued when I kept reading in reviews the magic sentence "...helped me fall into a deep and satisfying sleep..." I Love Sleeping! And I'm good at it too! I'm very grateful not to be one of those people that have sleep problems. But there are several occasions when I know that I have to get up at silly o'clock in the morning (generally to go on a very long drive somewhere) and that seems to be the only time when I suffer sleep problems. You think so hard about having to wake up soon that you don't fall asleep and then when the alarm goes off, you feel terrible and not in the best state for a long drive or busy day. So I bought these masks for those occasions where I really needed to have had a good sleep the night before …

Weekly Make Up Bag #8

Two months in already with this weekly make-up bag project! But I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the palettes I've still yet to include - so much product and not enough face!! Here's this week's selection. Heavy on the Nars (but why the hell not?!) and a bit random with the eye make up choices...
* Foundation - NEW - Touch in Sol Flawless Skin Top Coat - immediately after applying this morning (on the first day of using this choices) I made the decision to pass this on already (see reasons below). Will replace with another High Street foundation from my stash. * Concealer - Old - Inglot - Still trying to use this up... * Powder - Old -  L'Oreal True Match - Kept this in from last week. * Contour - Old/Fave - Makeup Revolution Contour Palette - Another week for this too. * Highlighter - Old/Fave - Nars Highlighting Stick in Copacabana - a lovely rose champagne cream - very easy to blend with fingers.

* Blush - Old/Fave - Nars Highlighting Blush in New Order (see below…
