♡ Lush Marmalade Jelly Bomb ♡

Hi lovelies ☺

If you read my blog before you’ll know I LOVEEEE Lush!! Who doesn’t right!?😍

So when I discovered they were doing jelly bombs I just had to have one… I do wish I’d bought multiple though!!😂

Anyway, I was browsing Lush & the lovely assistant came over, after asking me what sort of things I like he pointed me towards this fairly new bomb… after he explained how it works & it’s benefits of moisturising your skin while relaxing you I couldn’t resist!! I’m glad he did mention it to me as I’d never seen this baby before 😮

What lush claim

Please look after this Jelly Bomb and uplifting orange flower absolute will look after your mood. Get in a warm bath, toss in this brightening brunch of Brazilian orange and grapefruit oils and relax as jelly covers the water, softening skin and spreading joy as it goes.

This jelly bomb details for £4.95 per bomb which to me it is definitely worth it. If you use lush a lot you’ll know they aren’t super duper cheap but not expensive.. after all their ingredients are natural & cruelty free based!!

This jelly bomb definitely does relax you.. it is by far my favourite one I’ve tried! I really wish I’d picked a few of them up as I don’t live close to a Lush store 😕 #sadtimes not only did I feel super relaxed after this bath but my skin felt AMAZING!!! Literally like never before.. considering I’m now 28 weeks pregnant any moisturisation & calming ingredients are vital.. I had the best nights sleep that night 🙂😍

Here’s how it looked in my bath…

As it was dissolving the bath water did go very jelly like.. if you like a nice hot bath, like me, the bomb will dissolve totally & the water will no longer feel like jelly which is nice. Although it does still feel super moisturising & glossy to the touch!🙂

As you can see the water is no longer a jelly like consistency! What other thing I did love was there was actual orange pieces in the bath that just made it smell even more divine 😍

Basically, you can tell this is my new favourite & I’ll definitely be buying HEAPS more!!🙂

Have you tried this or any of the other jelly bombs!?

Maybelline Lash Sensational Review!

Hi beauties,

Another review, yes another haha! After having my blogging break I seem to have accumulated new products! Yaaay🙂

I’ve always loved Maybelline mascaras but not tried this, even though my twin swears by it!

It’s safe to say I should’ve tried it sooner!! 😮

The packaging is just the basic Maybelline shape, but the colour, how gorgeous is that rose gold packaging?😍 I’m in love!!

What Maybelline claim…

Result: A Layered, Multiplied Effect. Low wax formula for intense blackness without sticking lashes together

Tested on real women*:

90% Reveals layers & layers of lashes

90% Gives a multiplied lash look

90% Volumises every layer of lashes

90% Layer-reveal brush captures even the tiniest of lashes

Do I agree with these claims?

Plain & simply, I do! ☺

I absolutely LOVE this mascara. The formula is perfect, not too wet but not dry! I can be picky, I hate really wet mascaras but also hate drier formula mascaras!! *laughs* I didn’t notice any smudging on myself either.. not even on the lower lash line!! WOW😃

The spoon like wand also cups round your lashes perfectly, grabbing hold of all lashes even those small ones we didn’t notice 😃

As you can see from the image above it really does lengthen & seperate lashes as well as giving fab volume!😍

BONUSSSSS….

This mascara doesn’t smudge & smear so no messy marks on your glasses! WOOP!!

Have you tried this mascara? What did you think? ☺

Tropic Smoothing Cleanser Review!♡

Hey lovelies,

If your like me, your probably wondering what this product is all about! I was recommended this by a friend & haven’t looked back since!

This baby is definitely THE BEST cleanser I have used, I love the fact it is natural & so gentle on the skin!☺

Product claims

With a luxurious blend of uplifting eucalyptus, golden jojoba and avocado oils, this refreshing cream cleanser effortlessly melts away makeup and impurities to leave your skin feeling unbelievably soft and clean.

Comes with a free, naturally antibacterial face cloth, made from 100% organic, sustainable bamboo fibres.

Retail price £16 ♡ Every cleanser comes with a bamboo cloth!

Does it live up to the claims?

Plain & simply, yes it does!! This cleanser is absolutely beautiful, it makes my skin feel baby soft without having to use an exfoliator so often!

My pores always feel super clean & hydrated, I’m not left with that tight, uncomfortable feeling of a product that has sucked the life out of your skin!! THIS IS THE EXACT OPPOSITE!! It leaves my skin so nourished & hydrated, I use it morning & night as it is so gentle☺

PLUS… it has a pump.. it makes it super easy to use the cleanser & control the amount of product you use☺ YAAAY!♡

This cleanser can definitely be used to help melt away makeup or just on bare skin.. since being pregnant this cleanser has been my saviour as my skin has been SUPER dry!! However, I also used this before pregnancy when my skin was more oily & it worked just as well☺

Overall, I cannot praise this cleanser enough! I don’t think I’ll be changing up my cleanser for a long long time!! If you haven’t found that dream cleanser yet.. you need to try this! Definitely worth the money♡

Here is where I buy mine ♡

Foundation First impression!♡

Hi lovelies ☺

Eeek, I’m so excited to share this first impressions review with you!! It is a strange but interesting one, something I got on a whim after seeing a YouTuber review it☺

The product I’m talking about is the ’16 Brand Foundation’. Your probably thinking, ugh never heard of it!! 😂 You probably won’t have, I hadn’t until I saw this review.. but as soon as I saw it in action I was hooked & just had to try it for myself ☺😍

How cute is the packaging though? I mean if your a sucker for pretty things; like me, you’ll be sure to love this!!😃

Although it is quite cute the jam jar appearance is slightly messy as it had a clear seal on the inside which is covered in foundation, once you get passed this though you can use the super cute spatula to spoon a small amount into the lid!!☺ when I mean small, I mean small….

Here’s how it looks when it has been applied using my Real Techniques Sponge..

And here’s how it looks using my Real Techinques buffing brush…

Out of both methods I’ve got to say it applied a lot better using the sponge due to the thick consistency & VERY high coverage☺ As you can tell by the pictures the results with the sponge are far better than that of the brush, which for me was a surprise!😮

This stuff is amazing.. although it was very high in coverage it was very lightweight feeling on the skin & did not break me out! 😃 HOORAAAAAAY!!!

Not only was this gorgeous alone, my collection concealer blended like a dream on top of it!😍 plus, I did not feel the need to set it as it set down on its own after a short while 🙂(my skin has been dry lately, if yours is oily you may want to consider powder!)

Here’s how the foundation looks with all my makeup on…

20180129_20285713445715.jpg

I adore how well it covers my blemishes & redness while still looking and feeling light on the skin☺

It even wore well… after 6 hours it looked basically the same as when it was applied!👏

The only down sides to this foundation is that there aren’t many shade choices, plus I bought mine on Amazon & it’s now not listed on there so I’m not sure where else it is stocked!!😮

Overall, I really enjoy this product & will probably reach for it again when I want a more full coverage look🙂

What do you guys think? Have you heard much about this brand!?🙂

MOTD!

Hey lovelies 😘

Ahhhhh, I’m super excited to be back! Just trying to get my shizz together; growing a human is hard!! *laughs*

Today I actually wore makeup, so thought I’d show you my go to look at the minute 🙂

Each time I go to put on makeup I gravitate towards these products, well the face products at least 🙂 eye products vary depending on my mood & what look I’m going for that day 🙂

Today I just wanted a quick look that I could throw on before the school run! So here it is… let’s get started…

Ever since becoming pregnant I haven’t really wore a lot of makeup, my skin has changed so much! BYE BYE Mrs oily, hello dry desert face 😂😂 I’m thinking an updated skincare routine is in order so definitely let me know if you’d like to see that 🙂

Anyway, for my face I’ve been keeping it simple! As this NYX Mineral Stick Foundation is pretty moisturizing I have been loving it, paired with my trusty collection lasting perfection concealer & you can’t go wrong! 😍 Using the stick foundation all over & the collection concealer under my eyes I then blend both in using my FOREVER TRUSTED Real Techniques buffing brush!!😃

As my face has been dry I haven’t been bothering to use powder; if I do set it I’ve been loving using a setting spray!!

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE EYES!!

I wish I had some ground breaking look to share with you, but sadly it’s an easy peasy one today!! Be to be honest, I sometimes prefer these sort of looks, how about you?🙂

Today I used just 2 shadows!! Whaaaat!? Yes, only 2!! & I love how it turned out😍

I used the shade optimistic all over my lid, love this as a base, such a nice consistency & balance of shimmer! 😍 On the crease & outer edge I used the shade agile.. these mauve/burgundy shades are my fave for making my green eyes POP!!😃

No eye look is complete without mascara & brows so I just popped on a small amount of mascara & defined my brows with my fave brow gel🙂

What mascara have you ladies been loving??🙂love trying new ones!!

These next products are probably my ALL TIME FAVE!! ❤ each time I have done my makeup these last few months I’ve reached for these… absolutely loveeeee how they make my skin look!! 😍 what are they you ask?….

Soap & Glory love at first blush, this just gives you the most natural, radiant looking blush/sunkissed glow😍 I then top it off with my FAVE highlighter, Younique a la mode highlight in iridescent 😃

Here’s how they look on my skin…

How beautiful do they look? Love how naturally glowy they make me ☺😍

For my lips I just threw on my maybelline baby lips, think it’s the cherry one so it’s slightly tinted!!☺ I’m living for anything nourishing & hydrating at the minute 🙂

I’m baaaack!! Life update!

Hey everyone… I hadn’t realised it had been so so long 😭 a lot has happened in that time & I’m now going to be a ❤MUMMY❤

As if my last post was March 2016 😮 nearly two years ago!! Whaaaat!!!

During my time away I started my own Younique business, which I LOVED!! It became such a passion as I’d lost the love of blogging *cry face!* this seemed to help fill that space and give me something to focus on, which I loved.

Recently though, a certain little someone; baby Fellows, due May 2018, has taken over my life & come to the forefront of my life! Which I’m definitely loving, as someone that has always wanted kids, I couldn’t be happier. 😃 Although it hasn’t been easy, which I will be doing a seperate post about!

Younique has taken a back seat; I still adore the makeup, just fell out of love with the business side as I also work full time as a carer (not so much now due to baby) but perusing my full time job & Younique business as well as pregnancy was waaaay too hard & so tiring on myself I needed to put me & baby first!☺

Aside from my jobs I also have a busy family life, no rest for me, haha! 🙂 Of course that’s only going to get busier😍

Now that I’m back I’m planning on doing at least 1 blog post a week, possibly 2🙂 I’ll be posting different things, mainly life posts & makeup of course.. can’t forget the makeup!!😃

Thank you all for your continued support & I look forward to getting to know even more of you ☺❤
