Primark PS...Pro Beauty Sponges


Primark PS Pro

When we saw that Primark had released some new beauty sponges we couldn't wait to put them to the test! As die hard fans of the original Beauty Blender we are naturally sceptical of anything that claims to be a cheaper alternative as we have tried a few 'dupes' in the past and they have failed the test! However we had an open mind and selected a few different styles of sponges to try out and review, some from the regular PS.. range and some from the PS...Pro range. As suspected the PS...Pro sponges fared much better in our test.

Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes - Review

Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palette
One of the items at the top of my USA Drugstore Wish List in May was the Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palette in Earthy Elements. I can't lie, it was the burnt orange shade that attracted me initially. It looked so different from anything I owned and I was looking forward to getting my hands on the little palette to give it a try. I had seen a couple of beauty YouTubers raving about the shadows (in particular Leigh-Ann Says) and that made me even more keen to own it! Believe me, this Milani palette was not easy to get hold of! Back in May Milani was pretty much impossible to get hold of in the UK and during our trip to the USA it seemed that everyone else had the same idea as I did! It was sold out in many drugstores we visited but I eventally managed to find it in CVS.

Primark Rose Gold Jewellery Picks

Primark Rose Gold Jewellery
Over the past couple of months Primark has really stepped up their game as far as jewellery is concerned and on recent shopping trips their Rose Gold Collection in particular caught my eye. I am not someone who wears a lot of jewellery, preferring instead to stick to my wedding and engagement ring as daily jewellery staples. When I am looking for jewellery such as necklaces, earrings and bracelets I like to pick up 'costume' jewellery that is more affordable and trend based meaning I can switch them up to compliament different outfits and seasons. During my recent Primark shopping expeditions I have collected quite a number of rose gold pieces that I wanted to share with you. They are in store now if you see anything that catches your eye!.

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Splits

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Splits

When Jaclyn Hill announced on Snapchat that, in collaboration with BECCA, she was releasing Champagne Splits - Split Pan Shimmering Skin Perfector/Mineral Blush combo's I was sold! Mimi is a huge fan of the original Champagne Pop (holy grail highligher status for her!) and the more recent BECCA X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette (review here) therefore I was excited to get my hands on these new BECCA X Jaclyn Hill offerings. I registered on Sephora.com for the release day email notification and on release day I picked out my two favourites. Soon they were winging their way across the Atlantic towards my makeup collection!

Taylor Swift Lookbook

I am not ashamed to say that I have been a huge fan of Taylor Swift since her very early country days! I have always loved her style and have enjoyed seeing how much it has evolved over the years! I love to spend time scouring websites that describe the looks that some of my favourite celebrities are wearing in their everyday lives so I thought it would be so much fun to recreate some of my favourite recent Taylor Swift looks with outfits from the UK High Street! It was surprisingly easy to do and I was able to pick up most of the outfits to recreate the looks very inexpensively from Primark. I also found that l had some similar pieces in my wardrobe already so I was able to use them too!
