A little over a month ago the lovely Astral Original team invited me to lunch in London and I promised you a full review on the skincare that I received so, without further ado here it is. [Read more…]
A while back the lovely people at Nanshy sent me 4 Makeup Brushes to review and finally after a million and one hospital appointments and tests the review is going live for you all.
Anyone that knows me knows that I am a brush fiend, they are the most important and treasured part of my professional kit so, when Nanshy offered to send me some of their brushes of course I jumped at the chance.
I had heard of the brand before by seeing but, I have never tried their products. I was drawn to the brand because they pride themselves on being cruelty free with all of their brushes being synthetic and I love cruelty free brands.
I was sent 4 of their staple brushes, the F01 Flawless Foundation, the P01 Conceal Perfector, the stippling brush and finally the ultra fine Precise Bent Liner brush. I also received The Marvel 4 in 1 blending sponge which will feature in a future post.
First up is the F01 Flawless Foundation £9.95
This is a dense flat top foundation brush which leaves foundation looking airbrushed. The brush is packed with Nanshy’s signature soft bristles. These types of foundation brushes are my absolute favourite as they buff foundation into the skin and leave application looking natural and this brush does not disappoint. I honestly would fill my kit with these foundation brushes which are also perfect for blending cream blushers and liquid highlighters. I love having a brush that can multitask which this brush does effortlessly.
A few weeks ago the lovely people over at Sk:n sent me their popular Cleanser and Anti Ageing cream to review.
I had previously heard of the brand as there is a local Sk:n clinic in Brighton, However, I have never used their products or services prior to being sent the two products mentioned.
The brand have over 20 years experience in dealing with dermatological issues and work alongside the NHS and the British Skin Foundation. All of their clinic staff are medically trained so, when it comes to skin they really do know what they are talking about which made these products even more interesting.
As many of you know from previous skincare posts I suffer with eczema on my face predominantly around my nose and the corners of my lips so, I picked products specifically for dry skin. [Read more…]
Yes I am still alive its been a very busy few months getting myself back to normality following the Miscarriage but, I am pleased to say I think I am coming out of the other side. There are lots of great new things happening in my world and things are pretty good 🙂
On to the IMATS and UMAexpo as some of you know I work for the lovely Love Makeup most shows which I thoroughly enjoy, If I had to pick a Makeup Family it would be the show team as its always the same people and what a great and talented team they are.I brought a ton of stuff at both shows. I am going to list the items below and then over the coming weeks I plan on giving you full on reviews of each item.
