Festival Make Up!


Hey All

We love festival style and we've been to Glastonbury in 2014 and 2016 and just loved all the make up and hair. When we didn't get tickets this year we were gutted so we decided to have a night in at mine, play with our make up and drink cocktails and get C to take photos for us of the looks!

We love experimenting and decided this was the perfect excuse. (previous posts on hair here, top ten moments here and some makeup up from 2016 here!)

Make Up Revolution Ultra Cream Contour Palette

Hey All

I'm finally getting round to sharing my thoughts on products I've had for a while. Make Up Revolution is a brand I've been using for a while now since going Cruelty Free as they have amazing palettes.

Ever since seeing the ABH cream contour palette I've been wanting to try one but reluctant to spend loads of I think with these products you don't use all shades.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Range


Hey All

This is a post I've been meaning to write for a while, I first purchased items from this range almost a year ago. Prior to going Cruelty Free last year The Body Shop wasn't massively on my radar with the exception of the body butters. I've since realised I've been missing out on some amazing skincare!

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation Shade 2.0 Review

Hey All

A few months back I share my thoughts on the Urban Decay Naked Skin if you read that post (here) you'll have seen I'd picked it up in error and had meant to get the All Nighter Foundation.  It turned out a great accident as I fell in love with Naked Skin as it's such a great foundation. I was still curious about the All Nighter Foundation as it's namesake setting spray is my all time favourite so C bought it for me for Christmas.

Ebay Zoeva Dupe Eye Brush Set

Hey All

Last year for my birthday I got the Zoeva Complete Eye Brush Set (full review here), I instantly fell in love and was blown away by the quality of them and brushes I never knew I needed. I'd previously ordered a few ebay (review here) that I loved and still use now so when Make Up Savvy (one of L and I's favourite bloggers, her ebay bargains posts are the one!) shared this set I thought I'd see how it compared, and it comes in rose gold so looks pretty.

The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid in Tahiti Hibiscus 016 and Mauritius Dahlia 017

Hey All

Just before Christmas I was at home visiting Clarks Village, since going cruelty free last year I always pop into The Body Shop as I love their skincare now especially The Drops of Youth Range which I will be finally sharing my thoughts on next week! (L reviewed the peel here), when I was picking up my standard serum and bouncing sleep mask I had a reward on my beauty card so couldn't resist these.

Lush Radiant Eye Powder Pigment

Hey All

A few weeks ago L and I headed to London and just happened to walk past Lush Oxford Street, as we knew Cardiff was opening it's own spa we couldn't resist a peak inside to see a glimpse of what may be on sale in Cardiff. We lost an hour in there browsing and both couldn't resist a few cheeky purchases.

The make up pigments and lipsticks are exclusive to Lush Oxford Street and Lush Cardiff I believe so if you head to either of these make sure you check them out.

Storybook Cosmetics Wand Brushes

Hey All

If you didn't know L and I are HUGE harry potter fans (my bunnies are even named after characters - Harry Hopper and Dumbledore) we've read the books multiple times and watched the films countless times. We've been on the studio tour a few times too and we're planning another trip this year. You can see when we went on The Dark Arts tour here. When we discovered the company Storybook Cosmetics we both spent the next few weeks tagging each other in every post as we knew we'd both want all the products!! We've both got the eyeshadow palette on pre-order so I'm sure you'll be seeing lots of that! The quill and liner set is what I've got my eye on next!

Lush Spa Cardiff

Hey All

Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to see the new Lush store. A few weeks back we went to Lush Oxford Street and it made us even more excited. We couldn't wait to visit and stock up on the essentials, we love how hands on Lush is and it's great to see and play with the products to find the right one for you.

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Review and Swatches

Hey all

Urban decay is a brand I love, I have Naked 2 and 3 (reviews Here and Here) And when my other half asked if I wanted anything for Christmas the link to ultimate naked basics was one of the first things I thought of as i don't have many matte eye shadow palettes and it had a great range of light shades.

Also the packaging needs a shout out, how gorgeous is it. It's plastic so long wearing and has a huge mirror.

Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream

Hey all


As you'll know by now we love Antipodes so whenever we get the chance to review products we can't wait. The Manuka honey range is one of my favorites and it's lasting so long as the eye cream is a big pot (review Here and all Antipodes posts Here). Antipodes is the brand i turn to now for luxury quality cruelty free skincare.



Avocados are everywhere at the moment, there popular for diet, skincare and hair care. I love eating them but haven't specifically sought out skincare containing avacado oil so couldn't wait to try this out. As I'm loving my Manuka honey day cream I decided to try the Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream, I've been testing it for the last month or so now so I could really see the effects it has on my skin.(L got the Rejoice light facial day cream that I'm sure she'll share soon.)

Paul Mitchell Express Ion Unclipped 3 in 1 in Rose Gold Styling Wand

Hey all

We're very happy to be part of the styling society for Salon Success this year. We love the Paul Mitchell, New CID and L'avoly products we've tried so fair and you can see some previous products we've loved here and here.

Today we're sharing with you the Express Ion Unclipped 3 in 1 in rose gold. It's fair to say we were both unbelievably excited when we opened it up as it's absolutely gorgeous!! We both have a huge selection of different shaped and sized tongs and couldn't wait to try them out. We wanted to show you the wands in action and how they look on different hair. L's hair is long with some layers and mine is shoulder length and mostly one length now.

I love the convenience of having the one handle that can give three different looks and I'm actually getting rid of my others since getting this. My hair feels and looks healthy after using the wands due to the ceramic barrels and express ion complex and not feeling crispy (as some of my current one's do!) plus they look so much prettier!!

The wand heads clip into the base and you're ready to go, it comes with a variety of heat settings dependent on your hair type. I tend to stick at 180 as for me the curls last well and I don't feel my hair is too damaged then.

Morphe Brushes 25B Bronzed Mocha Palette


Hi all!

We recently wrote about the Morphe 25A Copper Spice palette (you can read it by selecting this link Here) and now we have our review on the 25B Bronzed Mocha palette.

We couldn't resist buying both of these, we only saw one instagram post on the Morphe account to know we absolutely both needed to buy both of the palettes.

Morphe Brushes 25A Copper Spice Palette


Hi all!

Just after Christmas we both saw the new Morphe palettes advertised on their Instagram and couldn't resist picking both of them up. We were VERY excited and couldn't wait for them to arrive, it was a long few weeks waiting for them to be shipped to the UK and we were quite annoyed when the Customs Tax charge appeared too!

But eventually we got them and so our first review is the Copper Spice palette, or 25A.

Honey Bee Beautiful


Hello there!

Just before Christmas I was invited to an event in Miskin Manor for the relaunch of Honey Bee Beautiful, a local company in Wales who sustain their own bees and make beautiful artisan products from them.

HBB was founded by Catherine, who previously had a successful career in law which she gave up to pursue her love of beekeeping. If you didn't know, bees are EXTREMELY important. They have a massive job in the ecosystem for pollination and it is said that 1 in every 3 bites of food comes from pollinators like bees (I don't know the source of this but I've seen it many times!) so we really need to appreciate them and look after them more.
