Vegan Beauty Products // Lush Products! 

Hi Guys!

Todays post is a little review on a few Lush products that i’ve either had a little while or gotten recently, the one that i’ve had a while is the Mask of Magnaminty which is one of my favorite products from lush as you’ll see below! 

As most people know Lush does a lot of amazing projects for the community and enviroment, one of these is that they have a zero tollerance on Animal Testing and most of their products are vegan friendly.

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway that i’m currently running for a Mac Lipstick!

Anyway lets get started with the reviews:

  
Jason and the Argon Oil – Shampoo Bar

I love shampoo bars from lush, they are so easy to use, don’t take up much storage and they last for up to 80 washes! This is the 2nd Shampoo bar that i’ve tried from Lush and it’s my favorite for sure! It smells lovely and because it is infused with Argon Oil – it makes you hair feel lovely and soft for days after.

  
Mask of Magnaminty – Face and Body Mask

This is a repurchase of mine – as you can see there isn’t much left in this pot and i’ve been scraping around the bottom trying to get the last bit out before I wash my pot out.  I use this mask once a week to keep ontop of the nasty face demons (spots and blemishes) that plague my skin! It’s such a refreshing scent (you can probably guess it’s minty!) and really wakes you up in the morning.  As it is suitable for the body, if you get any back achne etc it would probably help! 🙂 

  
Karma Kream – Hand and Body Lotion

This is a really amazing product for me, as a Veterinary Nurse I am always using my hands for work which means that I’m having to wash them every 10minutes or more.  This smells gorgeous and it lasts on the skin rather than just vanishing as soon as you rub it in.  I’ve noticed a massive difference in my hands the past week that i’ve been using it and really recommend it to anyone who works with their hands.

  
Dark Angels – Face Mask

This facemask is very exfoliating, I do not recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin! I however do not have sensitive skin and love a good exfoliator which I can feel working right down into my pores!  This is a black putty which you add water to to make it into a paste to put onto the face.  I use this once a week in the shower (it’s very messy!!!) and love the way that it makes my skin feel.  

  
Love – Soap

Finally is this bar of soap I got on Saturday (ft. in the haul below)  This smells just like the fizzbanger bath bomb and is lovely! I’m too scared to use this yet as I don’t really want to rub off the glitter (and I want it to still look pretty!) “In 76 countries it is a crime to be gay.  In 10 countries it can cost you your life” this is taken from the Lush Nottingham page.  100% of the proceeds from this soap go towards LGBTQ Communities all around the world to help fight the stigma and hate associated with being ‘gay’.

  
I hope you enjoyed todays post on my Lush products that i’m currently using, have a bonus kitten from work yesterday! He’s called Harry and is being fostered by one of our other nurses Lucy as they were dumped at only a few weeks old.  She’s doing an amazing job and they are turning into right sweetie pies!! (SO hard to resist!!!)

Mini Haul // Eyeliner and Lashes

Hi Guys!

Dorry about not posting yesterday, i’ve decided to totally gut my bedroom, moving all the clothes, makeup etc!  I’ve nearly finished doing it but decided to show you guys a few little bits I’ve gotten over the past few days.  

 
The first item is these new lashes from Red Cherry, I’ve been in love with the 43’s for quite a while but I saw these when I was going to reorder my regulars and decided to give them a go! I will post a look with them in a few days but I think they’re so gorgeous, wispy and sorta natural!

The second is this natural collection (by Boots) White eyeliner, this standard white eyeliner for brightening the inner eye, making the eyes look wider and brighter.  It was only £1.99 if I remember correctly and it is super pigmented!

The next item is a repurchase, this is a liquid eyeliner that I ran out of last month and I really love it.  The pigmentation is great, the application process is super easy and it says on all day!  I wish it was waterproof but you can’t ask for everything for under £5!

The final item is another repurchase, this is the Benefit BADgal Liner in black (waterproof).  This has been my favorite pencil eyeliner for about 4 years and will be one I keep repurchasing over and over again.

 
First swatch is the Benefit liner, Second is the Natural Collection Liner and Finally is the Maybelline liner.

  Bonus Hektor picture as a sorry for not posting yesterday!

Hope you are all having a lovely week and I will see you tomorrow!

Makeup of the Day – Work Style!

Hi Guys

So todays MOTD is a look that is usually my go-to look for work, some may call it my no makeup-makeup look! 

For this look I used two new products from my drug store haul the other day with amazing results.  Firstly the MUA baked highlighter, this highlighter is off the scale, its amazing, so cheap £3!  The next product was the MUA brow mascara in mid brown, this gave me a really full but natural brow look which is still on 12 hours later at 6pm.

   
Sorry for the bathroom shot, my husband was still asleep when I took this! 

Products Used

  • Foundation – Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
  • Concealer – Mac Pro Longwear Concealer
  • Powder – Mac Prep and Prime Translucent Setting Powder
  • Blush – Benefit Dandelion
  • Bronzer – Benefit Hoola
  • Eyeshadow – Naked 2 Palette
  • Brows – MUA Brow Mascara
  • Mascara – Benefit They’re Real 
  • Lips – Mac Whirl Lipliner and Mac Twig Lipstick
  • Highligher – MUA Baked Highlighter

Brushes used are the Real Techniques brushes, the NARS Ita brush, and the Beauty Blender ❤

  
This is the product shot (Minus the Benefit Bronzer/Blush)! The only difference is that I changed the highlighter to the MUA one as the Revolution on wasn’t very pigmented.

Can we just take a minute to adore this highlight… £3 really.

  

 

Heres an out-take from yesterdays eyelash tutorial which includes lovely Apollo trying to eat the eyelashes! ❤
