ALDI LACURA EXFOLIATING MUDMASK – REVIEW

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share with you today my review and honest opinion on the Lacure exfoliating mudmask.

Now I am a huuuuuge glamglow fan and these apparently are just as good, if not better then the Glamglow exfoliating mask (the black one)

The glamglow exfoliating mask is actually my favourite out of the whole glamglow range, so I was very sceptical going into this.

The lacure mud mask costs £6.99 in Aldi. They sell out very very quickly. When I went today there was only 2 left!

The glamglow exfoliating mask is £39 but apparently have now gone up to £42 (I have inside sources😉)

On first impression, they smell exactly the same!
Both have that minty witch hazel smell which I love!

Glamglow has more chunks in it where as the lacura one is a lot more smooth.

The packaging of the lacure one is very sleek, its silver and black which I enjoy. I love simple packaging.

Upon putting it on, I noticed I only had to use a little bit, a little bit goes a long way with this product!

It started to dry pretty much as soon as I stopped applying it.

It says you only need to leave this on for 5-10 minutes which is perfect for me! The glamglow one is 10-15 minutes.

I noticed a slight tingle, nothing compared to the glamglow one.

Whilst it was on, I decided to read the actual things it promises.

It promises to….
Visibly minimise the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles.
It also promised to leave skin looking INSTANTLY more radiant and feeling firmer.

Now I'm 25, I don't have wrinkles. But I do have large pores and fine lines around my eyes.
I also have very dull looking skin.

It contains clay and extracts of green tea, witch hazel and red algae.
Not as many ingredients as the glamglow mask, but still good ingredients nevertheless.

You get 50ml of product which is a good amount of product for a facemask!
I believe the glamglow is the same amount!

I found taking it off abit tricky as it dries down so quickly! You really need to soak the mask and then scrub it gently in circular motions.

Once it was off, I really inspected my face.

And to my surprise….

I was shocked!

I actually think I've fallen in love with this product after one use!

My pores we're pretty much non existent, the fine lines around my eyes had shrunk massively!
My skin looked glowing and honestly, it felt firm!

One thing they don't say on the packaging but something I noticed.

It also cleared out my blackheads! I could see them on the pad as I was washing it off!

I 100% believe this is going to take over my glamglow masks!

If your a lover of glamglow, honestly try this!

In my opinion, it's like the black mask and white mask in one!!

I will definitely be stocking up next time I go to Aldi because these fly of the shelves and I can understand why!
They are amazing!
And at £6.99 I'm speechless!

Hope you enjoyed this review!

My glossybox and birchbox reviews will be up soon.

I have my glossybox but it was missing a item so have to wait for that to give it a proper review.

Until next time

Look fantastic beauty box – Global Glamour edition

This blog will contain spoilers about the August global glamour box by look fantastic.
If you are awaiting your box and want it to be a surprise. Stop reading now!

For all those that are still here.
I will be doing a cost break down of each product
How long it took for my box to arrive and how much I paid for the box

So firstly.
The box is £15
With that they stated the box has a worth of £40 or more.
They also stated you get 7 products with one or more being full size.

I purchased the box on the 2nd of August around 5:30pm
I received the box today, today is the 4th of August at around 8:30am

The box is delivered Royal Mail tracked& signed for
So it does arrive very quick!

So let's talk about my first impressions of the box

Before I even opened it, my first thought was, it was heavy, I had never received a beauty box that heavy before.

Once I opened the packaging I saw the box. It's a aqua blue colour with a birds eye view of the world on it (definitely goes with the name of the box)
It also has Global glamour, look fantastic written in the middle of the box in gold.
Not a huge fan of that, I much prefer there normal black and white boxes.

Upon opening the box, I notice 2 magazines, a Elle magazine and the normal look fantastic magazine.
Now I know why the box was so heavy.

If anyone has ever bought a Elle magazine you will know they are heavier then your normal magazine.
The price of this magazine is £4.30

Let's jump to the products!!

My first reaction was okaaaaay….
Wasn't really happy but wasn't really disappointed

What you get inside the box is
Mane 'n Tail shampoo and conditioner, these are sample sizes.
I actually really like this shampoo and conditioner but it wasn't something I expected to see inside this box. Considering you can buy the full size for around £5

Working out the size difference and how much you get in these compared to the full sizes. I worked these out to cost around
£2.49 each!

The next product I saw was the Lottie London Balm Ball lip hydrator.
I was sent the sent apple which is extremely strong.
Not something I would apply all day.
This is the only full size product inside the box and it retails for £4.99

We then have the Lord& Berry magic eyebrow pencil. It claims that due to its two-colour universal tip it suits all eyebrow colours.

I was sent the shade brunette
I am excited about trying this.

The full size retails for £14
Unfortunately there is nothing on the sample size to tell you how much product you get. So I've worked it out to be around £7 for the sample size.

We then have the Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm.

It claims to have anti wrinkle ingredients and has a SPF30.
Again there is nothing on the box/tube stating how much product you get but based on weight, I worked it out to be around £4 for this size. The full size product is £18

As you can see from my swatch, it is far to light for me.
I filled out my personal profile to state I had a medium skin tone. So I won't be using this.

Next we have the Gatineau gentle skin toner.
You may of received the cleanser instead of the toner.

This is another sample size.
It smells very very strong so it clearly contains alcohol, which is good for my skin. I have a oily skin type, but not good for those with dry skin.

Based on the amount of product you get, I've worked out this to cost £3.29
Full size is £26.36

Last but not least we have the Korres moisturising body milk.
It says various sents but I can't find a sent name on mine. It does however smell very very fruity.

Price for a full size product is £8.00
Based on weight I've worked this out to cost £1.75

So,
In total, this box is worth a whopping…..

£26.01

Giving us a profit of

£11.01

Which is very disappointing considering they claimed it was worth over £40!

I with they had the prices in the magazine but obviously by prices are just estimates based on weight and how much product is in each.

I am most excited to try the eyebrow pencil and read the magazine.
The rest, I'm not that interested in.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and I hope you stick around!

I am expecting my birchbox and glossybox any day now!
I will do the same for those and at the end, based on profit, price of the box and products inside, we will see who's won the battle!

Until next time

Life update& New favourite products!

HELLOOOOOO!!!! 

Im so sorry I haven’t been blogging at all recently! The reason for this is because…. 


I got a new job🙌🏻

I am working as a beauty consultant at benefit cosmetics which I love! 

So I am based in boots in my local town but on the benefit counter! 

It’s such a good feeling actually getting a job in something your so passionate about, plus, benefit have some amazing make up products that I get to play with everyday! So it’s a win win for me!!! 


But…. before I got the job at benefit, I had a job at a hair salon as a make up artist, well I don’t have much to say about that, apart from it was dodgy and if something seems to good to be true, it probably is. I ended up leaving there, not getting paid a penny, feeling like such a horrible person when in reality, I’m a lovely person. If someone comes to you and says “I can give you a job and make you rich” starts bragging about all the money they have, but not even have a shop full of staff then RUN AWAY!! As fast as you can!! 


So that’s a little update on where I’ve been so now onto my new found favourite products, don’t worry, this won’t be full on benefit haha! 

Foundation:- 

My new favourite foundation is actually from benefit, it’s the Hello Oxygen foundation, I’m in the shade ivory pure for sure, I love this foundation because it’s very soft on the skin, it doesn’t leave your face feeling heavy and it doesn’t go cakes throughout the day. I’ve been using this everyday since I got it and my skin has actually improved! 


This foundation is £26.50

Powder:- 

My new favourite powder is the RCMA no colour powder, I love this for baking! It doesn’t leave your undereye area looking like a big sloppy mess, like it says in the name, it has no colour so it doesn’t change the colour of your concealer! I’ve been loving this since I bought it, it’s actually replaced my coty airspun powder! 


This powder is £9.95

Lipstick:- 

I don’t exactly have a favourite lipstick shade but I do have a favourite brand and that would be Coloured raine

I feel like this company is very underrated, I own 6 of there liquid to matte lipsticks and each of them are amazing and beautiful! 

The shades I own are 

  • Classy
  • Marshmallow
  • Fame
  • Kotton kandy 
  • Sugar
  • Mars

They are a one swipe, full coverage, they are not streaky, they feel very comfortable on the lips and they don’t feel drying, they are very very long lasting, I love every single one of these and I will be buying more, you can find these at beauty bay and they are £16.

Also, I just wanted to add someone I’ve been obsessed with watching on YouTube and that is John kuckian, I’m not usually a big fan of drama channels but he is hilarious! I love watching him! Highly recommend!


So again, I’m so sorry for being away for so long! 

There’s been drama, happiness and new make up! So I hope you can forgive me!

Hope you see you all again soon!

Graphic liner with Glitter

“Everything is wearable, if your wearing it- Mykie 2016”


Hellooooo everyone!!! 

I feel like the quote at the start is the perfect quote for this kind of look! 

The products I used for this look are

Makeup gallery pro liner in black- this was used to create the wing, you can find this at poundland for £1!!! Amazing stuff! Takes abit of practice to get the hang of it, but once you do, the product is amazing! 

Jeffree star cosmetics velour liquid lipstick in virginty- i filled in the wing using this on a small detailed brush, jeffree star’s lipsticks are eye safe so they was the perfect product to use for this look! 

Lit glitter in the shade heavy metal- I used this for under my lower lash line, it’s beautiful and lightweight, it also has different shades of golds and silvers in which make it the perfect balance of golds for this pastel look 

Ardell baby Wispie lashes- These eyelashes are so small and cute that they was the obvious choice for this look, looking full without hiding the amazing graphic wing

Gosh waterproof pencil eyeliner- I applied this in my waterline and also tight lined my eyes using this

Carli byble, bh cosmetics eyeshadow- I used the taupe and lilac colour and put it just in the crease to add some more colour on my lid. 

Honestly this look is so easy to do, it just takes practice and alot of back and forth, cleaning up your lines, to clean up my lines I used a small angled brush and some eye make up remover. Easier then a cotton bud because it’s smaller. 

I actually first saw this look done by swayze J Morgan on Instagram and I just had to recreate it! 

I’d love to see your take on this look! Maybe using a different colour or without the glitter? 

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed.

Jeffree star summer limited edition velour liquid lipsticks- TRUE REVIEW

Whilst I’m waiting for fake tan to dry, thought what a better time to write this review!

So, the new jeffree star liquid velour liquid lipsticks. The new shades are 

Watermelon soda

Virginity 

714 

Nude beach 

Queen bee- I don’t own queen bee because I didn’t personally want to look like a duck🐤 (if you bought it please don’t take offensive to my comment, it’s my own personal opinion) 

I believe they are all still in stock!!

Here’s the swatches of each colour


They all are $18, the same price as all the other shades, shipping to the uk is $10.95 so in pounds all together it works out to be £22 something. 

My experience with jeffree star cosmetics- 

Before this time, everything had gone very smoothly, I received my items within a week, they was perfect, went on perfectly and everything was great! 

This time however, they took my money before they even shipped my items! I paid over £50 for these, I was fobbed off with a fake tracking number and was told by the company to “stop emailing them and I will receive them when I do” hmmm okay… (Btw I would show the emails but I have actually deleted them, I done it by mistake! I cleared everything on my phone so I could have more memory and the emails went too) 

So…. 4 weeks later, I received my items. I had to pay £16.20 ontop for custom charges, I can’t blame the company for that, that’s not there fault, bloody VAT man! 

So in total, for these 4 lipsticks I paid over £60! I may aswell got the bloody bundle!! 

So now you’ve read my experience with the company, I shall talk about each shade

Watermelon soda:-

This is by far my favourite shade, the colour is literally like the colour of a watermelon, it goes on nicely, the colour is very intense, doesn’t bleed and it smells amazing! This colour is one of the best he’s done in my opinion! 

Virginity:- 

This is a very pretty nude lilac colour, it looks lush with a dark eye, it can make you look abit washed out but it’s a amazing colour, not streaky and doesn’t get bitty, again, another amazing colour by jeffree star

Nude beach and 714

Hmmmm…. Where to start with nude beach and 714…. Let me list the ways how these don’t seem and feel like a jeffree star lipstick… 

  • They are streaky as F! 

I have done everything to get these to work, I have used my jeffree star lipscrub, used thin layers, I put them in the fridge like he said on snap chat and I always shake my liquid lipsticks before use, these DONT WORK!! 

  • They tingle, and it hurts! 

I own pretty much every shade he has done in his liquid lipsticks, I’ve never known any of them to tingle before, it’s not even a nice tingle, it’s more of a burn, like the kind of sensation you get when you use lip voltage. Not good jeffree, not good… 

  • They are soooooo drying! 

Jeffree has always said his lipsticks are non drying… Well with these 2, that is a point blank lie! I’ve asked other people and they’ve said the same thing with these shades, my Cupid’s bow is so irrated and dry! 

  • They don’t dry to a matte! 

All of his liquid lipsticks dry to matte and some are transferable, but only slightly, these don’t really dry, nude beach, dries down slightly more the 714 but it is very tacky. 714 however doesn’t even dry!!! It gets everywhere!!

So these 2 are awful in my opinion, I’ve never had a problem with his liquid lipsticks before but these are horrible! 

714 I actually had before when he first launched it last year! and I didn’t have this problem with it! 

714 is the worst out the lot in my opinion. 

It’s almost like he’s changed the formula, the formula didn’t need to be changed, why fix what isn’t broken? 

Only thing I have to say which is good about them is the colours are beautiful. But that’s all. 

I have since emailed the company stating the points I have put here and hopefully something can be done, I just wanted to give people a review on them, a real honest review, not a youtuber who’s been sent them for free and has a biased opinion! 

I’ve always promised to be honest when it comes to my blog and that’s what I’m doing now! If you disagree with me then that’s your right to do so, but these are my thoughts and my true honest opinion. 

So my favourites in order are 

  • Watermelon soda
  • Virginity 
  • Nude beach
  • 714

I hope you enjoyed reading this and I’ve helped some of you out.

The liquid lipstick test! Who will survive?!


Helloooo!!!

Today I thought I’d do something completely different and that is the liquid lipstick test, who will survive?! 

The lipsticks all claim to be matte, long lasting and waterproof, I put this to the test! Trust me, the winner will shock you…

The lipsticks I am using. In the order they are swatched on my arm, top to bottom are 

MUA velvet luxe 

Anastasia Beverly Hills

Lime crime 

eBay ones 

Sleek

Nyx 

Max factor 

Velvet 59

Occ 

Illamasqua

Jeffree star


I would just like to add a disclaimer 

The same pressure was used on each part of my arm, there was no special treatment or me acting biased with any of the brands, I wear all these lipsticks but thought something like this may help those who don’t know the best long lasting lipstick to buy. 

On to the video! 

Enjoy

If the video doesn’t work for you. You can find it Here
