Urban Decay: Naked2

After being offered a new job this week, I promised to treat myself to a little something.. Now I know I’m a tad late on this, but I chose to purchase the incredibly popular Urban Decay Naked2 palette. I read a review that the Naked2 palette is suited for blue eyes and they were spot on! It contains plenty of golds, taupes, and shimmery greys all ideal for enhancing anyone with baby blues eyes!

SIMPLY THE BEST Concealer Ever: Benefit Boi-ing

IMG_0126Ok so saying that this is the best concealer is definitely a BOLD statement to make… (as I am the first one to admit that I haven’t tried EVERY concealer out there)! However I still stand by this little gem! It truly does exactly what it says on the box…. its industrial strength properties really do give you a great coverage and will cover any blemish with a natural but professional finish.  I tend to apply this under my eyes and around the nose and chin area. This makes for an excellent base to then apply your foundation for a flawless look. I have tried many other concealers in my time but this is trusty one I always go back to and although it may be a little more pricier compared to other products on the market it will last you a good while!

Boi-ing is priced at £17.50.   To buy your Boi-ing Concealer click here to visit Benefit’s UK website

Have you yourself tried this product, I would love to hear your thoughts & comments

Thanks for reading & happy concealing!

December GlossyBox: the review

IMG_7085

After receiving my first GlossyBox in November I was more than looking forward to December’s box arriving on my doorstep and I wasn’t disappointed! Contained within December’s goody box was;

1) TRESemmé Renewal Hair Scalp Nourish & Renew Tonic (£5.50) www.tresemme.co.uk 

This full sized bottle claims to nourish and renew your scalp after first use with its tea tree extract and sunflower seed oil. To apply, tilt head and use the nozzle to lift hair in sections and aim to target the root of your hair. Comb treatment through and style as usual, there is no need to rinse!

2) Bellapierre Cosmetics – Cheek & Lip Stain (£12.99) www.bellapierre.co.uk

This clever 2 in 1 cheek & lip stain is every girls must have handbag hero! This versatile little pot can be used as a beautiful lip stain and at the same time can be blended along your cheekbone to create a rosy pink hue!

3) Anatomicals – Zap! Zap! Zap! Gets that Chap! Day & Night Spot Stick (£3.79) www.asos.com

This 2 in 1 day & night spot stick really does attack those unwanted blemishes and spots that can rudely turn up at the worst moments!

4) All that Jazz – Professional Nail Lacquer (£9.98) www.allthatjazz.com

Dark blues, purples, navy’s, black nail varnish shades are all the rage at the moment! So this little bottle of petrol blue goodness is bang on trend!

5) Skin Pep Hydra Boost – Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum (£24.99) www.skinprep.com

This little bottle claims to promote a healthy new skin glow effect using its clinically proven cell communicating ingredient, hyaluronic acid. This powerful little bottle certainly worked wonders on my skin, when I applied it after removing my makeup!

Overall Verdict

Another fabulous selection of goodies from GlossyBox – can’t recommend this enough! My favourite item in the box has to be the bellápierre cheek & lip stain – go and buy yours now!

Thank you for reading – sending lots of love
