MAKEUP QUIZ: Are you a makeup genius? Or not as great as you think? We’ve made a part 2 and it’s harder than ever! It’s not easy to recognise things without their carefully crafted logos and branding. Have a go!
Black Friday is mental in the UK now. Like, not American mental, but it’s up there. Here are some of the best deals we’ve found so far.
We’re comparing the cost of seven different Real Techniques sets at 11 different online retailers. But this isn’t as simple as just ‘how much each set is listed for?’ it’s so much more than that.
UPDATE: In some select stores, mostly central London, all you need is a screenshot to get this primer. For the rest of us we need to actually buy Grazia. The issue is £2.20 and there’s a good chance they’ll be selling it in Boots, I bought mine from the Smashbox counter itself. Totally worth it. It’s
Yes, you read that right, these are our absolute favourite beauty bits for pound shop prices. There’s a lot of nail things on here, but when we say holy grail we really mean we don’t think more expensive products are any better, which is hard to say for most makeup that’s under a pound. Cotton
Here’s a heads up on how to get the most for your money at Boots this Christmas. Offer applies to most gift sets and advent calendars.
Last year our Boots Advent calendar sneak peek went down an absolute storm, Beauty Markdown wasn’t even a month old, and it’s STILL one of our most visited pages. So obviously we had to get another invite to the Boots Christmas show. This year we brought along a real camera to take high quality pictures,
What we’ve got here are 12 items, all of which are pretty universal (by which I mean no beige foundations that are never quite the right shade for anyone). The box includes nail varnish, makeup removers, blushes, ombre shimmers, moisturisers, lip balms, and more. There’s nothing in it I wouldn’t try out.
I’ve actually been using this on and off for a few weeks, and it’s taken a permanent place in my regular make up collection (you know, the 10% of my cosmetics I actually use – rather than the stuff neatly stored, which when asked about, I get all defensive and say it’s all being “saved” or for “special occasions” and no I absolutely don’t want to throw any of it away!)
My last post about testing products for Boots was so popular, I thought I’d share a couple of other beauty testing programmes I’ve recently discovered. You don’t need to be a beauty blogger like me to get free makeup and skincare in return for an honest review! It’s as simple as it sounds, companies send
So, we’re back at TK Maxx once again, checking out what’s on the shelves in July. We’ll include the real RRP for everything (not just the one they put on the label), so you can see where the real bargains are. Too Faced There were three shades of Too Faced Melted liquid lipsticks in my
As some of you may know, I’ve been trialling Liz Earle this month, and documenting the effect this has on my skin. I’m a fantastic test subject: I have whiteheads, blackheads, milia, and the ability to grow a rockin’ beard should the need ever arise.
Now, as I’ve mentioned before, my true beauty passion is definitely my nails. I’ve read hundreds of articles and seen tonnes of YouTube videos on this topic, but none of them really have the same routine as me (although this might be because most nail bloggers change their polish at least 3 times a week!)
Fancy getting free makeup and skincare in the post? In return for trying out a product and filling in a short survey, Boots will send you something from one of their own brands – it’s not just No7 and 17 that are owned by Boots, they also own Soap & Glory, Sanctuary, Sleek, Liz Earle,
Live near a Boots? You can pick up a FREE sample pack of the Clinique 3-Step System at participating stores. These little bottles are great for travelling, and the Dramatically Different moisturiser is one of my favourites for going under makeup – so it’s well worth picking this freebie up. How can I get it?
Yet again we’ve trawled through Tk Maxx, finding the best bargains and taking pictures – looking like crazy ladies in public so you don’t have to. We’ve compiled all the best deals we’ve found, and now we’ll tell you what’s worth it, and what’s not!
Kat von D’s Tattoo Liner is probably the most hyped liquid eyeliner out there, and it really is good. It was bought for me as a Christmas gift last year, and it’s taken over from the 17 Tattoo Me liner that used to be my holy grail. I’m a cat eye queen, so I need
