I’m thrilled to be reviewing a hair related product as sometimes it’s nice to have a break from constantly reviewing makeup (even though I’m obsessed with it 😂🙈).
Last week I purchased my first set of rollers from Pro Blo and I’m literally in love 😍!
I purchased the Ultimate Blow Out All Small set for £46 which has more value then the other sets. In the set you’ll receive:
- 12 Small Barrels
- 12 Hair Clips
- 2 Handles
- 1 VolumizeME
- 2 Travel Bags
However just a quick disclaimer the rollers can’t be used on hair longer then 22 inches. Luckily my hair extensions are only 18 inches long so I was lucky that they would work.
I’ve always liked the idea of using rollers and this was my first time attempting a big bouncy blow dry.
I found the process of attaching the rollers and detaching the brush really easy and hassle free. Although once I had all the rollers in my head felt so heavy but you got to take into consideration that I have so much hair 😂.
Once I had all the rollers in I allowed them to cool down for an hour.
When removing the rollers you need to do it in a upwards motion and then keep twisting the curls when they are released. Here is how my hair looked after I took the rollers
I love how my hair turned out it was super voluminous and I had really big bouncy curls. I wasn’t overly keen on how my top layers looked but I think that has more to do with how I applied the rollers to my hair so I think I need some more practice.
Although a few hours later I felt my hair had really dropped and didn’t stay as long as I had hoped.
As you can see my hair wasn’t as big as it was in the previous photo. Perhaps I should’ve used hairspray or other special products to help maintain my hairstyle.
Overall I do recommend the ProBlo rollers as they are good and I don’t think the price point was bad considering all the stuff I got for my money.
As Christmas is looming we are in full swing for the party season which means plenty of glitter.
I’m so excited to finally get my hands on a glitter flip lipstick from Ciate London as they had been sold out for ages especially after when high profile bloggers like Laura Lee and Jeffree Star reviewed them.
There are seven shades in the glitter flip range with each lipstick retailing for £17 each. I purchased the shade “Infamous” which is a lovely berry colour which is perfect for the fall/winter season.
The whole idea of the Glitter Flip lipsticks are that when you first apply the lipstick you get a metallic layer which you leave to dry and then after 1 minute you rub your lips together to get a full glitter lip. Does it work…keep on reading below to see ;)!
When I first applied the lipstick I was so surprised at how pigmented it was I literally only had to dunk into the product once and it covered my lips perfectly. After the product dried for a minute I started rubbing my lips together and look what happened:
I’m literally shook I have no idea how this stuff works! To go from metallic to glitter in seconds is seriously epic. Here is a picture of my lips after they transformed into a beautiful glitter masterpiece:
As you can see there is a huge difference I felt the photo doesn’t do the glitter flip a lot of justice but in the video above you can really see the lipstick in its full glitter glory 😍.
I really recommend these lipsticks as the formula is long lasting and it’s super pretty. I think it’s a really great concept with the whole metallic that changes into glitter and I’m defiantly going to get some more shades!
As you might’ve already seen Huda Beauty has recently released four new eyeshadow palettes that look so lush. I picked up the Smokey Obsessions palette for £25 from Cult Beauty.
However before I go any further I want to always keep my reviews real and honest. For £25 I was expecting at least a medium size palette but I was so shocked when I received the palette as it’s so small!
In my opinion I think the price point for this product is way off and for the size I would’ve personally been willing to pay £15 maximum!
The Smokey Obsessions palette has four matte and five shimmer shades that includes a intense black, warm shades of dark brown, taupe, champagne, gold and silver
What I love about the palette is that as the shades are quite versatile you can use this palette to create a banging Smokey eye or you can even create a beautiful neutral look for everyday.
Check out my swatch:
I’m seriously shook with the pigmentation of the 9 shades in this palette. I’m living for he shimmer shades as they feel so creamy I love the formula!
Overall I love the shades in the palette and I think they are so stunning but I just can’t get over the price point! I know I keep going on about the price but it’s only because I’m a huge believer in getting value for your money!
Hey everyone I would like to start off by apologising for the lack of reviews. Unfortunately I’ve got a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst that has been causing me some bother for a while now and this last week has been dreadful for me pain wise :(.
However slowly but surely I’m getting myself back on track and I feel a lot better then I did (thanks to the old pain medication 😂).
But on a happier note my lovely boyfriend surprised me by asking me to move in 😊💜.
Plus I’ve got loads of new makeup to show you guys so keep your eyes peeled 🙌🏻.
Was I the only one who got mega excited when ColourPop dropped their exclusive collection on Sephora?!
Literally when I saw the swatches for the Golden State Of Mind palette I knew this little beauty was destined to be in my collection.
I got the palette for £37.06 which isn’t too bad considering that included international shipping and customs.
The palette contains a mix of 15 super-pigmented pressed powder shadows with a glitter finish.
I think all the shades are simply stunning and they really have the most intense pigment. Here is my swatch:
How beautiful are these shades?! When the light hits these colours you get a stunning multi-dimensional metallic shine.
The shades are really pigmented and my swatches probably don’t do the palette that much justice but it’s only becuase I didn’t want to dig to hard into the eyeshadows.
I strongly recommend this palette as it will help you create the most stunning eye looks all ready for the party season.
I’m so excited to finally get my hands on some glamglow face masks. I brought the set from Debenhams and it had 10% off so I couldn’t resist 😂🙈.
The set has a retail value of over £70 and you can purchase the set for £42. Inside you’ll get be following:
- ‘SUPERMUD®’ clearing treatment 50g
- ‘YOUTHMUD®’ tinglexfoliate treatment tube 15g
- ‘GRAVITYMUD™’ firming treatment tube 15g
- ‘THIRSTYMUD™’ hydrating treatment tube 15g
I decided to use the SuperMud Clearing Treatment and I was told from numerous people to expect the face mask to make your skin feel tingly.
However I don’t quite think tingly was the right word it was more like burning 😕. I’m sure everyone once in their lifetime has put on a face product that has literally caused your skin to feel like it’s burning and it’s so uncomfortable. I was in two minds whether to wash the product off or just to persevere and kinda rock any redness that will occur. I kept the face mask on for 15 minutes and the burning subsided after six minutes.
After washing the mask off there was some redness by not as much as I expected becuase it literally felt like my face was burning when I had the mask on.
However my face feels so clean and looks really clear, I had a pimple starting to come up and this mask literally zapped it away I’m so shocked!
I think the mask is fantastic as it really works but my only negative would be I personally find the whole “tingly” sensation way too much! I won’t be using this mask regularly as it’s really intense and I don’t think it would do my face any justice.
So a few weeks ago Jouer literally dropped their new Fall collection which consisted of new lip liners, lip glosses and lip cremes. I was super excited about the lip liners as they looked so pretty 😍.
I didn’t want to be hasty and purchase all of the new lip liners as I wanted to see how one performed so I didn’t go and waste all my money 😂🙈.
I purchased the shades Bare ( the lip cream) which is a fawn pink and Sienna ( the lip liner) which is a cool brown. The reason I purchased these two shades was because I saw nurmouros swatches online and I felt these two shades really complimented each other.
As you all know from previous blog posts this isn’t my first purchase from Jouer and I’m quite familiar with there lip cremes. However this is my first time using the lip liners and unfortunately I’m not impressed as it literally broke the first time I used it.
I cant fault the pigmentation of the product but it is so delicate so you will need a light hand when using this product. Now I’m left with a blunt lip liner but at the end of the pencil there is a sharpener but I didn’t get much success from using it 🙈. Here is my swatch:
I love both of the shades even though my lip liner broke 😂. I think the shades are stunning and they look perfect together, like I said earlier I can’t fault the formula as it’s so creamy and it didn’t dry out my lips 👄.
I’m defiantly thinking about purchasing more shades as there are some really pretty shimmer ones but I don’t like the fact they break so easily.
