Love Me Beauty – September 2017 Review

Hi Everyone

I received my September Love Me Beauty ‘bag’ last week – it is another monthly beauty subscription service which I am currently subscribed to.   Love Me Beauty is a monthly UK beauty subscription service which costs £10.00 (+ £3.95 p&p) per month and there are  also 3 & 6 monthly subscription options available as well.  Each month you’re a member, you’ll get 60 credits to spend on a selection of products in their on-line ‘shop’ (sample, deluxe sample and sometimes full size items available at different ‘credit’ amounts) – you can also buy additional credits each month if you want.   New products are launched every 2nd of the month but if there are products still available from the previous month they also may be included within the product selection (they could be included for a number of months).  You can find out more details via link here.

This month I had more credits to spend as a friend had v kindly signed up using my link  which meant I got an additional 60 credits and my friend got 30 extra creditsTherefore I was able to get the following products; though still did not spend all my credits this month so can carry them over to October. 



PMD Kiss Lip Plumping System  – 60 Credits (FULL SIZE RRP £125 (however available on-line both cheaper and more expensive) The following was included: – PMD Kiss Device, Smart Lip plumping Serum;   2 Changeable Kissers (Small & Large);  USB Charging Cord &  1-Year Warranty.   Could not resist selecting this product as you are really getting it for only £10 plus postage although I really got it for free with my friends referral credits.  I also thought this was the perfect way to try this product as was intrigued but bit apprehensive as well, although would not have bought at RRP price or reduced price.  I intend to do a full review post once I get a chance to try properly.  States: Kiss uses patent pending pulsating vacuum technology to safely plump the look of lips and serum work with Kiss to create dramatic results including increased loom of lip volume; also advises visibly plumps in minutes and results last hours:  (unfortunately these are all gone now);

 

Look forward to any comments you may have – if you have received this month’s bag / selection would love to know what you chose / thought.

If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.

Thank you – enjoy the rest of the week and take care.

Review: Roccabox September 2017

Hi Everyone

Hope you all had a good weekend.

I received  my September Roccabox beauty box last week and as I have now got a chance to try all the products for a short space of time wanted to let you know my initial thoughts on the box/contents.

Roccabox is a monthly subscription beauty box which costs £10 a month (plus £3.95 p&p).   Each month you’ll receive a box of beauty treats hand-picked by one of the industry’s best-loved personalities / influencer, along with their top beauty hints and tips – for more details please see link here.  This month Roccabox have not teamed up with individual ‘influencer’ but have taken the advice of fashion and beauty editors – a ‘handful of true Fashion Week veterans’ and they state box contains products that are ‘real Fashion Week Essentials’.

Products come packaged  in an outer white box with rose gold lettering and an information leaflet is also included (photo below).

img_5847

This month’s box contained the following five items:

img_5848

 

Scentered De-Stress Therapy Balm (Relax Unwind & Reset) Mini 1.5g Travel Size £5.  Love theses balm already and had not realised they were now doing mini sizes as well now, as perfect  for travelling as you do not need much product.  I was intending to do a post on this range anyway and still will, as I think they are so good.  They are 100% natural and there are a number of different therapy balms – this one is to de-stress and you just apply to pulse points and inhale and I really do think these balms help.   Although I do like all the balms, my favourite is the ‘Sleep Well’ one.   Happy to see this in the box.  20% off purchases at www.scentered.me when you use the code SCENTROCCA20;

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads (Sample Pack of 5 pads)RRP £12.95 for 60 pads – The pads are soaked in glycolic acid and can be used on face, neck and decollete once or twice daily.  I have used these before and definitely think they do help to tone, smooth the skin and also give a boost to the skin and although this is a small sample still handy for travelling.  30% off when you buy 2 items or more using the code LFW1730 @ www.nipandfab.com;

 

Blank Canvas Quick Brush  (Full Size £14.05) – Favourite product in the box.  V impressed with this brush already, although it is quite chunky, it is compact & bristles feel soft but firm enough for applying foundation & bronzer and even blush.  Also love the hot pink colour so I am v happy to see this included  – will be checking out more brushes from this brand

 

Patisserie de Bain Shower Crème Crème Patissiere (175ml)FULL SIZE states RRP £2.99 (available in a set- not many sites seem to have this fragrance available individually at the moment).  –  It has a creamy consistency and does smell of vanilla, sweet.  Handy product to have and does leave skin fragrant but maybe slightly too sweet-smelling for some.   Reasonably priced and although would maybe prefer another of the fragrances in this range, will still finish this tube;

 

Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio in Gilded (RRP £14 for Full Size – think we got a mini size as hoping not £14 for this size!) – although outer packaging v pretty, product packaging does not feel or look great,  although the shadows themselves are more pigmented than expected when you swatch – not a fan of the gold glitter does not feel or look great but the creamy gold and the dark brown do look well on and did last longer than expected when I applied over eye primer.  Will try both for a longer period of time to see how well they perform but product packaging alone would personally put me off purchasing;

Overall I am happy with the contents of this months box, not my favourite box but still a good selection of products and brands. My favourite two products are the Blank Canvas brush and the Scentered De-Stress balm.  Wonder if there will be an individual ‘influencer’ next month again,  and if so who will it be?

Would love to know if you are already subscribed to this box, what you thought of this months box?

If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot and be v much appreciated.

Hope you all have a great week as always.

Thank you – take care.

Review: Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour & Beauty Light Wands & Brush

If like me you absolutely love attending as many beauty & fashion events, beauty master classes, new product launches as possible there are times when you say to yourself before you go,  I am going to resist and not going to purchase anything, going to wait and think about what I actually ‘need’, maybe want is a better word.    Well this is what I told myself  anyway prior to attending  a very enjoyable Charlotte Tilbury Master class last week in the House of Fraser Belfast store – although we were shown a number of Charlotte Tilbury products, the focus was mainly on the recently launched products, the ‘new’ Hollywood Collection.

 

However my resolve started to waver when I seen the gorgeous Hollywood collection in person and the results the brilliant makeup artist achieved when using them on the beautiful ‘model’ for the night.  Then once the makeup artists kindly applied the same products on my skin my resolve completely went and I was hooked and purchased the following three products( luckily I had gift cards to use as well) and I am now so glad I did (I also was impressed with the Matt Contour Liquid Lipstick from the collection and managed to resist but not for long as have now ordered one colour online and hoping will receive it today so will post a separate review on it soon):

1. Hollywood Contour Wand in Fair/Medium (also available in Medium/Dark) (12ml) RRP £29 (however you can buy the Contour Wand / Beauty Light Wand Duo on Charlotte Tilbury.com for £51).


Firstly love the darker gold tone stylist, sleek packaging,  it has a gold push on cap, with sponge applicator.  You need to screw the top end to open and close which I love as this avoids product being wasted.  I used as recommended below and was / am so impressed.  You can also use as a bronzer but be careful not to use too much product as a little goes a long way.

  

It has a beautiful light creamy texture and the sponge applicator makes it so easy to apply, helps it to glide onto areas of your face you want to contour.  Fair / Medium is perfect for my pale skin and when you use the ‘Hollywood’ Complexion Brush it blends in so easily but you could also use any brush to blend if you prefer, although think this complexion brush works so well with both the contour & highlighting wand.

 

Product does dry pretty quickly so better not to leave too long before you blend.  It is buildable so better to apply less at the start to achieve the look you want but absolutely love the finish it looks so natural and is long lasting as well.    It is the perfect product for all ages as does not accentuate any fine lines just defines, helps sculpt and enhances the look of your skin which is what we all want.  In this short space of time this has now become my favourite contour product.

2.  Hollywood Beauty Light Wand Easy Highlighter (12ml) RRP £29 (however you can again buy the Contour Wand / Beauty Light Wand Duo on Charlotte Tilbury.com for £51)


This has the exact same packaging as the contour wand so love it as well – only difference is it is bright Rose Gold packaging.    It is a beautiful light rose gold colour with a gorgeous creamy texture and again the sponge applicator makes it so easy to apply, so easy to define top of the cheekbones, under the eyebrows.

 

It blends so beautifully  and also is buildable so better again to apply less at the start as takes so little product to achieve the look you want, again adore the finish which makes it perfect for all ages as does not accentuate any fine lines just enhances  the look of your skin with a beautiful light reflecting glow which is what we all want.    As I  have fines lines around my eyes I usually am extra careful when I apply highlighter as most highlighters also highlight the fine lines which you really do not want but I find this product does not do that as long as you do not use too much.   It is also the perfect product for under the eyebrows, inner corner of the eyes, you can either use a small brush to do this or just take a little product from the sponge onto your fingertip and apply that way, works well both ways but a small brush does define more.  It is also perfect for highlighting the cupids bow, top of the lip and bridge of the nose.    In this short space of time this has also now become my favourite highlighter.

3.  Hollywood 2 in 1 Complexion Brush RRP £30

Also adore this dark burgundy / rose gold 2-in-1 makeup brush with synthetic fibres.  The bristles in this brush are soft but still firm enough for blending, buffing or softening any harsh lines.  I have found no fall out which is brilliant (although still need to trim two long bristles),  I am not a huge fan of most of her other brushes as bristles have fallen out & I personally feel they are not quite as good as brushes I own from other cheaper brands.

 

The larger flat-top brush is perfect for contour blending, even applying blush and the smaller angled brush is perfect for precise contouring / highlighting and for applying/blending product under the eyes and round the nose areas.    Although would not usually recommend getting another brush if you have enough already in your collection feel this is one would be a great addition to any ones collection as works perfectly with both the contour and highlighting wands, especially if you decide to get one or both of them.

I am so, so  impressed with all these products, love them all.  Although I do like a number of Charlotte Tilbury products already, these three products have exceeded my expectations and are now among my favourite (if not my favourite) Charlotte Tilbury products.   I definitely would recommend  getting all three of these products if you can as I adore all three but if want to get one at a time would recommend getting the Beauty Light Wand (highlighter) first, then the Contour Wand and then the Complexion Brush.  If you are near a Charlotte Tilbury counter call in and ask one of the makeup artists to show you the products and if you / they have time, know they would also be happy to apply some of the products for you as well, as think you will also fall in love with them when you see the results.

At the moment, during September if you order on Charlotte Tilbury.com you will get a free deluxe sample of the MINI LEGENDARY LASHES MASCARA  as well as other samples at checkout.   Usually there is charge of £2.95 for postage when you spend under £49 but currently until 16th September 2017 (until tonight), to celebrate the brand’s birthday, there is free shipping on all orders.

Have you bought any products from the ‘Hollywood’ Collection yet, if so would love to know what you think of it, do you love them as much as me?

If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot – intend to have more posts up over the weekend, beginning of next week as well.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Thank you and take care.

Feelunique Pick ‘n’ Mix Service / Samples – September 2017

I received my  Feelunique’s Pick ‘N’ Mix  selection today.   It has been a while since my last selection but decided to get another one this month as had seen few things I already loved, wanted to try.

As advised before you can pick five ‘free’ samples from a selection of samples  available while stocks last (one selection of samples per month) – you are charged £3.95 for shipping and handling fees although you can redeem this against any future order  (excluding Pick ‘n’ Mix) via a £3.95 gift voucher you receive in your follow-up email.

I chose the following  5 items this time  and overall I am happy with the samples I got below, listed in order of my preference (but as always would love more makeup samples to choose from):

the Balm Single Matt Eyeshadow out of the Palette Meet Matt(e) Trimony  – I have used eyeshadows from the Balm before and like them, this one is no different it is a beautiful matt dark burgundy colour, great pigmentation and hopefully long-lasting.  Love the magnetic closure packaging as well;

Isadora Multi Vitamin Gloss in 32 ‘Raspberry’ (2ml) – a multi vitamin antioxidant lip gloss – have got this one before in this colour and one in ‘Fruit Cocktail’ and love them both – they feel really comfortable on the lips and perfect size for the handbag;

St Tropez Gradual In Shower Tan  (50ml) – Good size sample and have used this product before and although not my favourite product from the St Tropez range, still handy to have as a stand by/spare;

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 03 Natural (Sample Card) – this is down the list as was a bit disappointed initially with the size of this sample only because on the Feelunique site it is described as a sample pot  – however there is still enough on the card to see if you like this bronzing powder or not – bit shimmery at the beginning but when you apply on your face not as noticeable;

Mane ‘n’ Tail Colour Protect Shampoo & Conditioner (10ml each) – the only sachet samples I selected this month – although I have never tried these before,  I always find shampoo & conditioner samples v handy to take with you to the swimming pool, gym;

Happy with my selection this month, definitely will continue to use the Pick ‘n’ Mix as and when I see samples I want to try or already love.   Remember the more generous sample sizes / make up samples  go quickly but as long as you regularly look through the sample choice you should always see something you want to try.   I also love that the service is not tied to a subscription.

I continue to highly recommend trying this service for  yourself as a great way to try products for ‘free’ prior to purchasing especially if you make a future purchase through Feelunique to enable you to redeem your £3.95 gift voucher (the charge for shipping & handling fees) (if are new to Feelunique you can use my code here to get £10 off your first order with a £30 minimum spend – if you use it thank you in advance).

Look forward to any comments you may have – would love to hear if you have used the Pick ‘n’ Mix service already, what you thought of it?

If not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.   I intend to have more posts up later, over the weekend.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Thank you – take care.

YOU Beauty Box – Sept 2017 Edit (The Last One)

Hi again

img_2166

I received my September 2017 YOU beauty box (YBB) on Saturday but only getting round to opening it now  – I  was on the Gold Plan (£10.95 a month – chose of 4 items).  However sadly we have been advised that after four years the ‘September Edit’ will be the last YBB shortlist  / box.   YBB has now joined forces with their sister site Latest In Beauty (LIB) but to thank subscribers for their loyalty they are offering a Full Size Paula’s Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment (worth over £50) when they subscribe to the joint LIB/YBB monthly Build Your Own Beauty Box and enter code YBB at the checkout – for more details please see photo below.

However onto what I selected / received in YBB September’s box:

 

Seahorse Plankton 5 Minute Miracle Mask (60ml) (FULL SIZE) RRP £14.99

 

States: delivers some serious plumping and firming.  Firm lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, and skin is stimulated and rejuvenated with a beautiful glow.  Has a lovely creamy consistency and only has a slight fragrance not overpowering which I always prefer with face masks.  Looking forward to trying as love using masks;

Max Factor X False Lash Epic  (13.5ml) (FULL SIZE) RRP £11.99

 

Nice gold packaging but have so many mascaras to use up have not opened this one yet but description sounds v good – tip is supposed ‘to capture and magnify every detail of every lash for an epic lash fan.  No lash is left unseen’.


This a creamy polish although the granules are quite scratchy on the skin.   Unfortunately this product is definitely not for me as I really dislike the fragrance it smells to me like being at the dentist – smells of the products used for making a ‘mould’ for your crowns or fillings – really off-putting for me and I also feel the granules are just too coarse as well. 

Love to know what you thought of this month’s box and YBB’s decision to join their sister site LIB.  Are you considering subscribing to the LIB Build Your Own Box?

Also if you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.

Thank you and take care.

Review: Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder

Hi Everyone

Hope you all had a great weekend, hard to believe Monday again.

When I seen the fantastic makeup artist LMD (Louise McDonnell) using the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder at a Sosueme event earlier this year and also more recently at an LMD masterclass last week in BTY Cosmetics, 5 Chichester Street, Belfast I finally got round to purchasing it and  I am so, so glad I did.

 

Description

Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder, Translucent Extra Coverage was introduced back in 1935 by the French cosmetic company Coty.   The Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder comes in a hard plastic round jar with dark orange screw top patterned lid, does still look like an ‘older’ product (2.3oz/65g £13 in BTY),  and is available in a number of different shades – the following shades are available in BTY Cosmetics Belfast. Translucent, Translucent Extra Coverage and Naturally Neutral (when in stock).

 

I purchased Translucent 070-24 as prefer a translucent finishing powder with my pale skin but if you have a darker skin tone you may prefer one of the different shades (although may not be that much difference as lady in shop advised she did not really notice a lot of difference between the different shades she stocks).

 Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder claims to have the following benefits:

  • Hides tiny lines, wrinkles & blemishes;
  • Gives a new softness to the skin;
  • Can be used to set make-up or as a foundation;
  • Long lasting

Product / Application / Results

First of all I have to say there is a strong smell of the product once you take the protective cover of which I know some people may not like but I do not mind as it smells to me personally like a Max Factor Crème Puff Powder Foundation Compact that my Granny / Mother used to use so it holds v special memories for me but if this was not the case I may find the fragrance a bit strong initially as well.

It is a finely milled powder that feels so soft on your skin.  Very impressed with amount of product in the jar, there is a sifter over the top to avoid too much product coming out so need to tap some product onto to the lid  and then apply; although there is a puff provided I prefer to apply with a powder brush all over my face and smaller brush for under my eyes and over my eye shadows, can use a damp beauty blender to apply under the eye area as well.  You need v little product as if you use too much it will take a bit more blending so apply smaller amounts at a time.  Because of the useful tips I have learned at makeup master classes  I apply at each stage throughout makeup application; over concealer to set if have blemishes, over under eye concealer, over eye shadow and lightly on eyeliner.  Yesterday I also applied very lightly over my lipstick and then applied another coat on top and it definitely helped my lipstick to last longer.

I am so impressed with this product, love it already, far exceeded my expectations.  I have used other finishing powders in the past and although thought they were good none impressed me enough to want to let everyone know about them.  After application I feel your makeup looks more vibrant as long as you do not put too much on and my makeup definitely lasts longer especially around t-zone, under the eyes.  Also helps my eye shadow, eyeliner last longer and my skin does not feel ‘clogged’ up as other powders seem to make my skin feel.  My skin also does seem to feel smoother after use.

I personally would not use as a ‘foundation’ even in a different colour as do not like the feel of just applying a loose powder to my ‘bare’ face unless it is the Bare Minerals foundation.    Fine lines and blemishes do appear less noticeable but would not agree that it ‘hides’ them, more blurs them but definitely does not accentuate them as some finishing powders can.   However may try the extra coverage one to see if any difference.   My daughter who has normal to dry skin (I have combination) has also used this product for the same amount of time and she is also impressed as well and does not mind the fragrance either but this is also due in part to our ‘special memories’.

I definitely would recommend trying this product for your self as although the packaging may not be very exciting and fragrance bit strong initially, I do not think you will be disappointed with the results.  However try to smell it prior to purchasing  if you can due to the fragrance but as I have said before I do not mind it & after application the strong fragrance does not last long but know it may put some people off purchasing / using it.   The nearest product to this for me is the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder (29g RRP £29) and although it is good and has no strong fragrance it is a lot more expensive, less product and I personally find it not quite as good as this Coty powder.

If you live locally and are able to call into BTY Cosmetics Belfast you will be able to try this product out for yourself prior to purchasing (phone beforehand though as this product is v popular and can be out of stock at times).   If not, hope you have a store near you that stocks this as well.   Not many UK online stores appear to be stocking it at the moment but it is available on Amazon.co.uk.

If you use this powder already would love to know what you think of it, do you like it as much as me?

If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot – intend to have more posts up during the week.

Hope you all have a fantastic week.

Thank you and take care.

Mac Lip Scrubtious Review

Hi Everyone

Hope you all are having a lovely weekend.

I love a number of Mac products especially their eye shadows and lipsticks so when I seen a while back that there was now a lip scrub within their range as well it went on my list of products I wanted to try, as although I find when I use my Ultrasun lip balm balm on a regular basis my lips thankfully do not get too dry, they still on occasions have dry patches which I find only a lip scrub will help remove.

Description

The Mac Lip Scrubtious lip scrub (15ml RRP £12.50) comes in a hard plastic colour co-ordinated jar with black screw on top (states 15ml on Mac online site but 14ml is on bottom of jar/box that I got in Debenhams but it was only £12) and is available in the following  five ‘flavours’, Sweet Vanilla, Fruit of Passion, Candied Nectar, Summer Berry and Sweet Brown Sugar.

img_5482

I purchased the sweet vanilla flavour, which definitely smells and tastes like vanilla but still not too overpowering.   I would  also like to try three of the other four flavours, the sweet brown sugar one has just too strong a smell for me.

Claims to have the following benefits:

  • Exfoliates Lips;
  • Smoothes and softens lips;
  • Conditions Lips;
  • Hydrating

Directions

  • Using a fingertip massage a generous amount onto lips in a circular motion;
  • Wipe away with tissue or rinse off if desired;
  • Use two to three times weekly.

Application / Results

I applied as directed and got v good results but now find making  the following v slight changes gives me even better results.  I wet my lips slightly before application  as although the scrub has an oily base it is still quite scratchy on the lips.  I massage in circular motions on my lips for a few minutes and then when all the particles have nearly gone I leave the oily residue on my lips for a further minute or two, rubbing my lips together a few times during this and then I remove any remaining residue with a wet cloth as find a tissue does not remove as well.

img_5480

The results are amazing, any dry patches are gone, lips feel really soft, look refreshed, so smooth, also feel conditioned and  lipstick / lip gloss  glides on so easily afterwards, perfect base.   I now use the lip scrub at least twice a  week and  find using this along with my Ultrasun lipbalm keeps any dry patches at bay.  The only other lip scrub that has come close for me personally has been the Milani Keep it Sweet Sugar Lip Scrub (RRP £13 for 12g), however the Mac one has given me slightly better results so will definitely be repurchasing it and would recommend trying for yourself.

If you have a Mac counter near you and you are able to call in you should be able to try the lip scrub out for yourself before you decide to purchase.  You can purchase from a number of on-line sites, two of which I have included below, however as always check around to see where the best value / offer is if you decide to purchase.

  • Maccosmetics.co.uk –  £12.50 (15ml) – you will get free shipping, choice of 1 free sample at checkout (maybe more if offer on but usually with a higher value purchase) and if it is your first purchase and use the code WELCOME10 you will get 10% off your order;
  • Debenhams.com – £12.00 (14ml) but currently £10.80 as 10% off, however £3.49 UK postage so better to get in store if you can but if you are ordering to value of £20 or over you can order online then  arrange to pick up your parcel for free in store if that suits you better, don’t forget to also claim cashback on your purchase as well (currently up to 4% cashback on purchases);

Enjoy the remainder of the weekend.  If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot.

Thank you and take care.
