Testing NYK1 Secrets…

I hope you are having a wonderful start to the New Year so far! Just before Christmas, the lovely team at Babushka PR very generously sent over some of NYK1 Secrets award winning, cruelty free and vegan friendly products to try which I’ve been testing out since.

Brand Focus: The Relaunch of Topshop Beauty

Brand Focus: The Relaunch of Topshop Beauty

As you may have seen, I recently had a very exciting order from Topshop arrive of products I’ve picked as becoming a part of their community of Brand Fans. Which I still can’t get over, SO overwhelmed and grateful! After discontinuing their original beauty line earlier last year, the old favourites are now back in sleek packaging, plus so many new additions to Topshop’s Beauty range full of affordable, cruelly free products. The products range from £5-£16 which is so important for me with a student budget. The new range has a more elegant, minimalist look in matte black and gold which I’m living for. There are makeup-bag staples such as liquid foundations, concealers, pressed powders and long-wear liquid lipsticks (my personal favourite.) I wanted to do a blog post on some of my favourite products I’ve tried so far in the new range! They also still have an up to 70% off sale so I’d hop on over and have a nosey!!

Beauty Favourites of 2018

Beauty Favourites of 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I took a little break from posting towards the end of December to spend time with family so I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I can’t believe we are at the start of another year! I feel as though the second half of 2018 just flew by! I have a good feeling about 2019, fingers and everything crossed! Looking back, last year I didn’t actually make very many discoveries in the beauty department and I mainly stuck to what I know works. There were a few gems though that I did find, especially skincare products which I can see myself loving throughout 2019 that I thought I would share seen as though it’s that time again! Some of which I have mentioned previously on here.

Testing Dermalogica Skincare…

Testing Dermalogica Skincare…

Skincare has always come first for me before makeup and I am conscious to look after my skin (thanks to my mum) but especially as a student, I’d never really looked into what I should be using on my skin, what is best for my skin type etc and had a regimented routine. I’d remove my makeup with a makeup remover, occasionally do a face mask/exfoliating scrub, cleanse then moisturise and that would be me done. Recently however, I was VERY generously gifted some Dermalogica products to try as part of their #skinfluencer programme (which I am still overwhelmed by) and oh my goodness they have changed my whole perspective on skincare. I’ve heard a lot of people say this who are also in the programme but honestly it really is like having a mini facial at home. OBSESSED. You really feel these products are getting down to the nitty gritty not just on the surface of the skin.

A/W Nails With Roxanne Campbell Nail Lacquers

A/W Nails With Roxanne Campbell Nail Lacquers

If you know me, you’ll know that I’ve always loved my polishes. I remember paining my nails in primary, thinking I was the bees knees with my crackle nail polish. Who else remembers that?! 

Especially now I’m at college, my nails are usually painted in some form, (when I have the patience) either with polish, press on ones or gels which I now do myself thanks to the kit I got last Christmas! Thank you mum. So when celebrity nail profession, Roxanne Campell’s email popped in my inbox asking if I wanted to try some samples of her own luxury nail lacquers from the collection and share my thoughts, I was beyond excited. I have picked out three shades perfect for this season and also transiting into the winter months.
