Kat Von D's Lock It Foundation and Concealer


Well hello there!

I've been meaning to share this review for a little while now but life has been so busy! After my trip to Croatia I've been travelling with work and will be away for the next few weeks, hopefully I will be able to keep up with everything.

I picked up the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation and Concealer at their opening event of the Cardiff stand in Debenhams a few weeks back (post here of the counter and the make up looks!)

W7 Contour Stick

Hey all

Contour sticks are everywhere at the moment with the release of Fenty and the Kim Kardashian West contour sticks I've been wanting to try some myself as they make contouring so much easier but wanted a more budget friendly dupe of the one's mentioned above and that's where W7 didn't disappoint!!

Kenra Professional Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner


Hey all!

The weather recently has really started to get greyer, colder and wetter! It was expected now we're in October but for me especially it was a tough change. I've recently got back from two weeks in Croatia (I can't wait to share my pictures with you!) and the difference in the weather from sunshine and islands to the grey British weather was a shock to the system.

My skin has been drier and my hair, so I've been looking at products to help me battle the weather change. It was good luck when I remembered we recently received some products from Salon Success from a brand called Kenra and I couldn't wait to try them out.

The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops Light

Hey All

As a pale girl finding foundation that matches especially on the high street and that is cruelty free is a struggle. After finding The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops in light I've not looked back, I can now use all my old foundations that are too dark and adjust foundations to suit perfectly dependant on my skin tone at that time!


If you've read our blog for a while you'll know L and I are huge fans of The Body Shop, after going cruelty free I rediscovered a love for their products and have tried loads and got L hooked too, you can see all our reviews here and here.

Lush Breath of Fresh Air Toner Water Review

Hey All

There are probably going to be a lot of lush reviews from me over the next few weeks as I've been picking up some old faithfuls and some new products to try, today is an old faithful I loved for a while. The breath of fresh air toner water is a lush product I've probably been using now for about 5 years, it's even mentioned in early days blog posts so when I picked up a new bottle I thought I'd share a new post on it.

Lacura Exfoliating Mud Mask



What are your thoughts on dupes??

If you're anything like us you will love a bargain, but often the dupe isn't the same as the original product so I suppose it's each to their own with buying products that are copies of another.

The Glam Glow masks have been around for a few years now and have a huge following, I've only tried a sachet from them a while back and I did like it but can't really comment on regular usage. I'd love to try it, but at £42 for 50g of the Youthmud clearing treatment I just cannot justify it - being single and buying your own home is not good to your bank account!

However, the fabulous brand that is Lacura from Aldi UK has an Exfoliating Mud Mask that is very similar indeed.

Spectrum Collections Sassy Sirens Make Up Brushes


If you're a sucker for a pretty make up brush then join the club!

I absolutely cannot resist any new make up brush, I love the classic monochrome, marble, metallic accents (who doesn't love a bit of rose gold nowadays??) but the unicorn trend has brought out some corkers too. Spectrum Collections have been the obvious choice here - their range is BEAUTIFUL and I did struggle looking at the website choosing what to get.

The Glam Clam is a personal favourite and I almost chose that, but the Siren brushes caught my eye for being totally different again!

Kat Von D arrives in Cardiff


Hey all!

If you're a fellow Cardiffian and a make up fan you will have been pleased to find out that Kat Von D has FINALLY arrived in our Debenhams store. We are both fans of Kat Von D and although M has the Shade and Light palette (review here) neither of us have tried any of her other well known products because we needed to be colour matched. We've also mentioned over the last few months how both of us are now only purchasing cruelty free make up, and Kat Von D has one of the best ranges of products that aren't tested on animals.

So when we heard about their blogger event we HAD to go!

Must Have Cruelty Free Make up Brands

Hey All

A few weeks ago L shared her Top 5 skincare products (post here) so I thought I'd do the beauty version, I've been totally cruelty free in all purchases of make up for over 18 months, it's taken some discovery with some brands being shady about it and some brands making the decision to sell in china so are going back to animal testing (Nars I'm looking at you, that decision broke my heart!) Anyway, so here are some of my favourites!

Lush Crème De Menthe Mouthwash Tabs

Hey all

When I went cruelty free the hardest thing I found to change was toothpaste, I struggled to find a good one (I shared a post on deodorant and toothpaste here) for travelling I take the lush one's featured in that post and for everyday use one by Dr Organics. Something I hadn't found though and had debated making my own was a Cruelty free mouthwash so when I saw lush were bringing out mouthwash tabs I had to try them.

Miss Patisserie Coral Bay Dry Body Oil


Have you ever used a dry body oil before?

I'm not really someone who uses body moisturisers or oils very often....I definitely should but I'm always lazy when I know I should put some on my heels and knees. 

Last year I bought the Miss Patisserie Dotty Box (review here) to try a few products at one time. I knew I loved the Coral Bay scent so choosing that box was easy, what I didn't know what how much i was about to absolutely love a product that I thought I would hate!

The Body Shop Camomile Range - Cleansing Oil, Cleansing Butter and Make Up Remover


Hey all!

I've been slowly making my way through The Body Shop's range of skincare, and haven't really shared much of my thoughts on it yet. I recently made an order of cleansers because mine were running low, so I decided to pick up a few different types and get stuck in.

Make Up Revloution Flawless Mattes Palette Review and Swatches

Hey all

As I'm if you're a regular reader you'll know we're big Make Up Revolution fans (see your reviews here), not only is it a bargain price it's a Cruelty Free brand too. When L and I were on one of our many shopping trips one palette neither of us could resist is the Flawless Mattes palettes, it can be hard to find good matte shades so to find a full palette of them for less than £10 neither of us could resist.

Spectrum Brushes Must Have Minis



Hey all

At the end of May we headed to a Spectrum event in Cardiff (you can see that post here. We couldn't wait to go as it was not only a brand with the prettiest brushes but it's a brand that's Welsh. We love supporting local!

Spectrum was founded by two sisters and it was great to hear their story! They also reminded us of how we are together so it made us love them more.

Skinny Tan Express Mousse 1 Hour Tan Review

Hey All

We're big fans of Fake Tan, we're both super pale so love to wear fake tan as it makes us feel better. We always searching for the next great tan, the one that look natural, fades well and doesn't smell of biscuit and for me now it has to be Cruelty Free.
