First Look: Storybook Cosmetics Wizardry and Witchcraft Palette


Hey all!

We've got a quick first look post for you today that we have been super excited about!

A few months ago (way back in February!) we ordered the Storybook Cosmetics Wizardry and Witchcraft palette - we're HUGE Harry Potter fans and heard about this as soon as it was designed, so we just knew we had to get it. Especially after seeing all of the colours and swatches on their instagram account, so we couldn't let it pass us by!

If you haven't heard of Storybook Cosmetics then where have you been?! The business is owned by 3 triplets in the U.S.A., all of whom love Harry Potter and the general fandoms that exist (Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Disney....etc etc). They seem like fun people to be around and you can see their enthusiasm for their products! I think there are actually 6 sisters in total so you can imagine the make up wars they must have had over borrowing and sharing their purchases! They have a fair few ideas in the pipeline so we look forward to seeing what they release next.

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.

Hey All

Last week we shared our thoughts on the Marula Oil range that you can view here. This week we're sharing another new range we were lucky to be sent to try out. As always all of these products are cruelty free but the Neon Range also adds even more!

The Neon range which is available from July has a great story behind it and when purchased supports some great anti-bullying organisations!! So not only do you get to treat yourself to some amazing products you support organisations that help people during tough times and Stand up to Bullying

Lush Sacred Lotus Bath Bomb


Morning all!

I've got a quick review today of a bath bomb from Lush, it's called the Sacred Lotus and is an Oxford Street exclusive. I picked it up when we went to London a few weeks ago (really need to get a post up on that soon!) and couldn't resist the bright colours and the scent.

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.

Top 5 Cruelty Free Skincare Brands


Hi all!

Happy Sunday! Hope you're having a relaxing morning. I'm catching up with jobs before going to my friends son's first birthday party - he's such a cutie I can't believe he's one!

Today's post is a summary of my favourite cruelty free skincare brands. M made the switch a while ago now and I try my best to buy cruelty free, skincare is much easier for me and I'm just finishing up using some products from before. Make up is a bit more difficult but with brands like Urban Decay, Illamasqua and Make Up Revolution it is a lot easier!

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.

Miss Patisserie Safari Bath Ball


Morning all! Happy bank holiday weekend!

I don't know about you but I am still in a 'Spring Clean' mode, so although I have some plans with friends over the weekend I also 100% want to have a sort out in my house too. Anyone else got to the point where their house looks tidy but actually it's because all the cupboards and drawers are stuffed full?! Oops!

I also plan on having a few relaxing baths - totally treating myself with multiple baths in a weekend! I've made many bath product purchases recently so it's a great excuse to look like a wrinkly lobster every few days.

One of my recent bath balls I've tried is Safari from Miss Patisserie:

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!
