Pre-Christmas Pamper routine




This is my last post of the year so before I get into it, I want to thank you all for reading my blog this year - thank you for taking the time to comment and thank you for the support. I love that I have developed some great friendships as a result of this blog. I know that some people say that blogs are dying and that Instagram is the way to go but my blog will always be my first love! 

Today, I am talking you through my pre-Christmas pamper routine. I like to buff myself from head to toe and just prep my skin so that it's looking as clear and glowing as possible!

2018 Favourites: Skincare




I know it's a clichéd thing to say, but where on earth has this year gone?! It honestly feels like it was only 6 months ago that I was posting about my 2017 favourites! Regular readers will know that skincare is my thing and I am lucky that I get to try a lot of products. I will be posting about my favourite discoveries of the year later this week but today I am focusing on products that I have used consistently this year (or for a number of years in some cases).

Cult Beauty December Brand Of The Month: Morphe. New holiday releases




For the month of December, Morphe is Cult Beauty's Brand Of The Month, which means that there is free international shipping on all Morphe products. I think this is really brilliant because Morphe products are priced so affordably that you would normally need to buy a lot of products to reach the free shipping threshold. It's a brand that I only became acquainted with a few months ago but I have been very impressed and their Continuous Setting Mist has in my daily rotation ever since as I much prefer it to some of my more expensive setting sprays. They recently released their holiday collection, which I want to share with you today!

Edited to add: I have an incredible offer to share with you! If you spend £40+ on Morphe and use the code CBXMORPHEXMAS at checkout, you will receive a gift worth £129, which includes Cult Beauty Tote Bag, Morphe Bling Fling Brush Set, All Eye Want Brush Set, 9A, 9B and 9C palette. There are only 20 of these sets available so go, go, go!!!!

Review & Swatches: Kevyn Aucoin NudePop Pro Eyeshadow Palette


Kevyn Aucoin NudePop Pro Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches,


The Kevyn Aucoin NudePop Pro Eyeshadow Palette was quite an unusual purchase for me because I don't tend to wear cool toned eyeshadows but there was something about this palette that made me want it as soon as I saw it! I hadn't tried any Kevyn Aucoin eyeshadows before this but I knew that the texture of the powder highlighter is beautiful so I assumed that the eyeshadows were a safe bet. I've had a few weeks to play with the palette and want to let you know my thoughts today.

Shine Bright Like A Diamond! The highlighter edit


The Highlighter Edit,


If I told you that this was even half of my highlighter collection, I would be lying but these are my favourites! Highlighters are my thing - I love how they can instantly make my skin look alive and they banish signs of fatigue and dull skin. I personally don't like anything glittery or to look like a unicorn or mermaid (I am sooooo not into that trend!). I like a smooth formula that can be sheered out or built up and the texture has to be smooth and soft. I have 16 highlighters to share with you today that tick those boxes and they vary hugely in price, which proves that you don't need to spend a fortune on makeup for it to perform well.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils - the comfortable, long-lasting lip option.


Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils Review & Swatches


Although I am a gloss girl at heart, I definitely gravitate towards matte lip options in Autumn and Winter. Matte lips don't have to mean dry, flat, lined lips - things have come a long way since the days of uncomfortable, drying lip products. Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are a great option for those who are scared of full-on matte lips as they have a velvet matte finish, which is more flattering and comfortable.
