Did I need it? No! What can I say? I'm weak when it comes to Hourglass palettes! Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette is the 4th palette of this type that Hourglass have released but confusingly, there is an Ambient Lighting Edit 4 coming in the next few weeks. The reason that I chose to buy the Unlocked Palette rather than wait for the Ambient Lighting Edit 4 is that all six shades in the Unlocked Palette are new.

It's so true that the years go by much more quickly as you get older - I actually cannot believe that it's October next week and that Christmas has started to come into our thoughts! I'm a huge fan of all things Christmas and love getting organised early so I'm delighted to be bringing my first festive post to you today! Don't worry, I won't be doing gift guides until closer to the big day but Advent Calendars tend to sell out quite quickly so I wanted to give you all of the details of the Feel Unique offering today: The Little Beauty Parcel - 24 Day Beauty Calendar. The contents are worth £250 so it's a steal at £75!

If you read my post on 'How To Buy Luxury Skincare For Less' then you will know that I buy the majority of my skincare products in sales or when discounts are available. I also like to share discounts with you when I find them so I had to tell you about the Feel Unique Skincare Event because there are discounts of up to 33% available! Brands included in the event are Gatineau, Murad, La Roche Posay and more.

It's that time of the month again when payday is approaching so I wanted to share four products for four budgets that I personally love and think you will too. It's nice to treat yourself but you don't have to spend a lot as this post shows with products ranging from under £10 so there should be something for all budgets.

Sleep is something that really makes a noticeable difference to my skin but it's something that most people don't get enough of. If I have a few late nights or restless nights/broken sleep etc, it always shows in my skin so if a product claims to mimic the effect of a good night's sleep, I need it in my life! When I heard about L'Occitane Overnight Reset Serum, I was instantly intrigued.

GIVEAWAY AND REVIEW: Introducing Ecooking - the Danish skincare brand that is new to the UK and Ireland
Ecooking is a brand that you will probably have seen popping up on social media over the past month or so and that's because it's new to our shores! Ecooking is a Danish brand that is relatively new - it was founded in 2015 in the kitchen of Tina Søgaard whose skin had been suffering and not responding to any of her usual skincare favourites - because of this, she decided to make her own products. It is an all natural and mostly vegan brand (the exception is the beeswax used in the lip balms and multi-balm), the packaging looks quite industrial but it's recyclable and the ingredients are listed on the outside of each product. The brand has grown very quickly in its home country of Denmark and is set to be released in 20 countries worldwide before the end of 2018. There are 40 products available and I was kindly sent a selection to try and I want to share my thoughts with you today and at the end, I have a giveaway where you can win all of the products mentioned!

A couple of months ago when Too Faced released a second concealer, I did a comparison post (here) so when I bought Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer, it occurred to me that I should do a similar post because most people will purchase one, but not both concealers. Because Charlotte Tilbury is Cult Beauty's September's Brand Of The Month, there is free worldwide shipping on all products so I thought it was a good time to do this post!

I wear perfume on a daily basis - even if it's a pyjama day because it always makes me feel better when I smell nice! One of my favourite fragrance brands is (and always has been) Armani - who remembers City Glam? Because It's You was released last year and it's still one of my most worn perfumes so I wanted to review it today and let you know that Superdrug currently have £10 off the 50ml bottle at the moment in case you feel like treating yourself or a loved one!

I think we've established at this stage that I'm a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury makeup (posts here, here and here for example) but I rarely talk about her skincare products. Because Charlotte Tilbury is Cult Beauty's Brand Of The Month for September, which means there is free international shipping on all orders, I thought it was the perfect time to discuss her skincare range.

For some reason, Morphe is a brand that I had never tried until recently. Morphe's aim is to produce professional standard products at affordable prices and with products starting at £3.50, they are certainly affordable. Because the brand is back on Cult Beauty, they kindly sent me a selection of products to try - brushes and makeup, and I want to share my thoughts on everything with you today.

I have a selection of products that I've been reaching for pretty much non-stop over the past month or so (in some cases, all summer long) that I want to share with you today! It's a mixture of skincare, makeup and fragrance.

Erborian is one of those brands that I like more with every product I try. It started with the Bamboo Glow Dewy Effect Cream, which I used over the summer (and wrote about here). I find that glowing skin looks more youthful and whilst I try to achieve it through my skincare, sometimes it needs a little help and that's where these two Erbrorian products come into play.

Following on from Friday's Autumn makeup post, I want to share some of the Clarins Autumn Make-Up Collection with you today. It's quite a small collection and the theme is Joli Rouge & Black, which entails a dark smokey eye and bright coloured lip, but not just any old bright lip, a subtle ombré lip. Clarins also recently released a range of brushes and I was kindly sent one to try, which I can honestly say is the softest brush I have ever used and the bonus is that it is completely cruelty free!
