So, I've never been a 'Blush' person, I carry a small blush palette by Sleek, which is one, modest peach toned compact shade that I lightly apply to my already reddened cheeks. Hence why I don't spend too much money on Blush related products, and stick to the more affordable brands that will still do the trick. This week's affordable purchase is from Makeup Revolution, a brand I've of course heard great things about, but never tried until now. The Ultra Blush Sugar & Spice Palette and the Golden Sugar Palette were obvious picks for me, gorgeous yet affordable new palettes to try. What are your go-to Blush products?
I don't know about you but for me, getting ready for events, nights out or parties can be such a lengthy, stressful experience since I'm always late and can never decide what to where whilst in the middle of singing along to my favourite hit songs. It's a mess. But today I thought I'd do a Night Out Get Ready With Me so we can stress out together, however I'd also like to introduce a new key element to my getting ready experience in the form of an app; the Airtime App. What is your getting ready experience like?
Just before I went completely broke getting my hands on Kylie Cosmetics' new Kyshadow and the Matte Liquid Lipstick Dolce K, I had a little shopping spree on Sephora.com for a few things I need to top up on or replace. If you're a regular around here then you'll know that I adore Sephora and whenever I get the chance to visit one I relish it. Sephora stores, however, don't always have all the brands that I like e.g. Too Faced, so it's always more fun receiving all the things I like through the post instead. But this time I went for Sleek, Benefit and a gem from the Sephora Collection itself.
As I mentioned in my previous Birchbox Unboxing post for July, I am doing a 6 monthly review of all the products that I've received from Birchbox so far. The good, the bad and the ugly. I think it would give you and I a chance to see how worth it Birchbox has been since January, and see whether its worth subscribing to (and for me, continuing my subscription). I have a yearly subscription which came to around £130 (average price for most boxes), but as much as I love Birchbox, I'm always open to trying other subscription services to find the best one, with the best products and value for money. What subscription service do you like?
