DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

Deep Cleansing Oil from DHC as provided from Glossybox August
Oil. On my face. On my oily face. No!
Putting oil on my face would be something I would have run for the hills from a year ago. It feels unnatural and goes against everything I have ever believed good for my skin type.
But I'm a beauty blogger now, and obsessed by all things beauty. I have become an open floozy for beauty products and I'm free to try anything, a bit of a swinger if you will.
"So here goes" I thought to myself as I decanted oil into my palm.

Estelle And Thild Lip Balm Review

I recieved the Estelle And Thild Lip Balm in my ever talked about Selfridges box and it's a little beaut of a product!
Dressed in simple pretty packaging and a pale yellow tint to the product. I thought it would be a little "bog standard" and nothing too special.
Ahhh don't you just love having to say you were wrong?!
Amazingly flavoured with raspberry, so good it's a struggle not to lick it off my lip's straight away!
Estelle and Thild are a Swedish brand who promise to provide you with products you can trust, using only high quality, organic ingredients that protect your skin's natural balance.
It goes on incredibly smoothly and a little goes a long way!
Thankfully lacking that greasy or sticky feel but coating the lips just enough to give a subtle, natural sheen.
Packed with vitimins that get to work nourishing and replenishing moisture whilst protecting.
I have been using this every morning over the top of Benetint and I love the natural look it gives. It is available in two other shades of pink if you were to want something with a little colour which is what I will probably do when I repurchase this in the future.
A little piece of organic, pretty, feel good makeup!
I found it for £14 here!

Stila One Step Correct Fresh Face To Full Face Review

The Stila One Step Correct was in my Selfridges box (review here) and I have since been trying it out for size against my other million primers...well 5 or 6 really.
Said to be a colour correcting, brightening, anti-ageing, oil controlling serum primer (mouthful!)
So just a general super hero of a product then?! Talk about multi purpose!

Inspirational Art!

Here is a word to get me excited- Stationary!
Yup, WHSmith is great and The Range is heaven!
If you aren't into drawing, art, stationary and colouring in then I am about to leave you confused and bored to an untimely death!
Recently my friend nonchalantly whipped out the most awesome bit of stationary kit I have ever seen!
So I went on a mad search and bought one to settle my jealous instinct to draw all over her face and run into the horizon with said stationary...

Selfridges are to open a new beauty workshop, a modern girls cave of wonders if you will.

Sounds amazing right?!
So Selfridges released a one off, limited edition beauty box to celebrate the launch of the Beauty Workshop.
A yellow box filled with 7 sparkly new beauty products representing their favourite beauty finds.

Molton Brown Cheek Bloom

I recently did a surprise swap box with a friend on the Beauty Box Swaps Facebook page and amongst a whole box of amazing products  I received a great little Molton Brown blusher that I love!
In the shade cutely named "Apple Blossom"
A very light cool toned pink that really highlights cheeks.

NARS Gilda Blush

My first NARS purchase. I know. Exciting stuff.
Nars Gilda blush. It's a matte, burnt orange, red tinged coral. And sadly, maybe not right for my skin tone? Arghhh!
I was rushed in the Selfridges store and didn't want to keep people waiting so I picked Gilda on a whim and now I wish I had chosen differently.
Not that it isn't a stunning blush though!

Illamasqua Sale!

I can try and resist. I can try and stay strong. But ulitmately, I NEED these Illamasqua items. I do.
Illamasqua had a huge sale recently and the little darlings went and delivered my package last night.
Unfortunately my boyfriend was home when it was delivered and it's a whole lot harder trying to convince him of my NEED for these beautiful things...
