Hi loves! I thought I'd write a little piece on some new Too Faced samples! I was gifted these items by Wizard Publicity, but of course, all opinions are my own!
I've been a huge Too Faced fan for the longest time & have a huge collection of Too Faced products (let me know if you want me to show you my whole Too Faced collection!)

I'm going to give a mini review for each new product, and let you know how I got on in the past few days of trying these new items out!

I'll start with the classic Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara! I can't believe I haven't tried this yet. I've always wanted to, it's just one of them things where I've NEVER run out of mascara to actually need to go buy a new one. This makes your lashes so unbelievably feathery and wispy, and doesn't clog all your lashes up together at allllll. 

The main thing for a mascara for me is that it doesn't transfer onto my undereye. I have tried SO many mascaras before, but usually most of them transfer. It's just a thing with my face! This mascara does not transfer even after about 11 hours of wear, and also doesn't flake off. I'm obsessed! 

& to accompany the mascara, I have liner. Those who know me, know I absolutely can't stand my eyes with a winged liner. It just doesn't go with my small eyes! I have however, started smoking out my eyes a little bit more than usual & this is just the babe to do it with. It's SO precise, and something I hate about eyeliner is how chunky it can turn out looking, which doesn't suit my eyes. This can be as thin or as thick as you want it, and I love an eyeliner that does that. 

What's better than a bronzer that smells like chocolate? Nothing. Absolutely nothing at ALL.  Not only has the Too Faced Chocolate Matte bronzer got such a lovely formula, it smells delicious too! I've been using this for the past few days, and the shade is so lovely for my skin tone but I also think it will suit a broad range of skin tones, just not very deep ones! 

The formula is really nice, it blends out perfectly and stays put all day long!

& I've left my fave thing till last. The Too Faced Hangover 3 in 1. I haven't really ever used a product that's a primer and setting spray all in 1 before! It's pretty innovative really! I used this to test out each one: 
- as a primer 
- as a setting spray 
- as a refreshing spray 

I loved it the most as a setting spray, but it's really nice to spray on as a primer too! Special shout out for the spray cap nozzle thing - it disperses the product evenly which is something I look for in a setting spray product! 

If you have any other questions about these products/any other Too Faced products, let me know! xx

Too Faced Staples!

If you've known me for a while, ABH has been a fave of mine from the very beginning of my make up collection! Now, about 5 years on, I have managed to build quite the collection of ABH products and thought I'd share my fave bits from ABH.

This is not my whole collection, but it's a fair amount. I may do a full collection video on my Youtube (soon) so let me know if that's something you'd like to see!
Recently, ABH PR company in London, Purple PR sent me some products I've never tried before! I've added a * onto the ones that were gifted.

This is the only Blush Trio* I own by ABH. It's beautiful! I love the different selection of blushes, and when I visited the counter with Purple PR, the lovely lady guiding me through some products explained how you can mix all three blushes together. Simple me, wouldn't even think about doing that! lol.

I've also been LOVING this ABH Bronzer* in the shade Rich Amber - they have loads of different shades, so have a look at the shades dependent on your skin type! I love this on top of my cream contour to define my cheekbones a little bit more! :)

So I purchased the ABH Eye primer when it first released. I picked up the travel size version instead of the full size in case I didn't like it. But honestly, it's my fave primer to use ESPECIALLY when I'm going all out with colour. It sets your eyelid nicely, and then you can pack so much colour onto the nice nude base!

I've used the ABH Brow Pomade since the beginning of my make up days, it truly is a staple in my collection! I was using the shade Chocolate, but the lovely lady at the counter matched me with Ebony* instead! I also use the Brow Definer, which I forgot to picture!

I have quite a few ABH glow kits, but my all time fave at the moment is the Dream glow kit. I actually don't think they sell it anymore, but thought I'd add it here anyway lol.

Wow, I love this. First of all the packaging is the most beautiful thing ever, and then a setting spray from ABH was just what I was missing! The Dewy Set* gives such a lovely healthy glow!

Sorry the holographicness of this made it so hard to picture. I got two loose glitters* from ABH to try, and wish I tried them sooner. There are 3 shades currently & I own Sunset Aura & Snowflake. NEED to get my hands on 'So Hollywood' which is an original shade from ABH.

This Matte Lipstick Set* makes for such a CUTE present. It features 4 travel sized lipsticks & all really nice shades of nudes! Even if not for a present, keep it for yourself haha!

I have two absolute fave lip glosses from ABH. Moon Jelly is probably my fave lipgloss in my collection, out of every lip gloss I own. Then, Vintage is such a lovely pink toned lipsgloss which give my lips such a healthy look!

I own SO many ABH lipsticks, but narrowed my faves down to these three! 
Buff, Dusty Mauve & Rosewood! Buff & Rosewood are very similar, but I still like both of them just as much as one another! 

& I narrowed down my three fave ABH Liquid lipsticks too! Dusty Rose, Craft & Ashton! I feel like everyone has Ashton in their liquid lipstick collection, am I right? 

I thought I would touch upon the ABH Single Shadows I own! I'm slowly growing my collection, and love building a custom palette, but I'm not going to link them all as I'd be here all day! haha. 

I have left the most complicated product for last.. the EYESHADOW PALETTES. I'm only going to go through my absolute all time fave palettes here, I won't talk about them much as on the blog I've probably got an in depth review on each palette - have a look out for them!

The state of my Modern Renaissance palette shows how much I love this right? I always have this palette out on my desk, to accompany me if I'm using another palette. It is SUCH a staple palette and along with the brow stuff, the MR palette is what started my obsession with ABH! 
hahahahhaha - I was getting ready to crop out that cheeky little ant (I took these pics in my garden) but then I realised, I really can't be bothered. Hi Ant. 

THE PRISM PALETTE. ILY so much. That is all.

The Norvina Palette. This ranked my fave ever eyeshadow palette of 2018. Yes, yes it did. I would quite easily be happy with this palette as the only palette I owned. That's quite a large statement I just made - but it's true. Plus I love Norvina so much - she has such an awesome personality and really does care about ABH's customers.

The Riviera palette - a new palette of 2019- and I was so happy to see this amount of colour from ABH. It really is something different from ABH and I really like that.

You think you'd see this in my best of ABH products? Well you are. The sultry palette for me, is something I don't actually have in my collection! This palette is an all cool toned palette, and I don't think I can compare this to any palette I own. That's why I love it. Sometimes when I'm sick of all the warm tones, I reach for this palette and I honestly really like it! That grey shade and the bloom shade just work SO well together.

That was a lot of products right? Let me know if you have any other questions about these products, or any other products. I tried to keep this as simple as possible as I didn't want it to get too long for you to read, but do of course let me know if you have any questions!

 I've wanted to try Profusion Cosmetics for the LONGEST time! The lovely Profusion team gifted me a few palettes to try, and I thought I would share my thoughts about the Pink Nudes & Siennas palettes with you all!

Let's start with the Pink Nudes palette!

This palette is £7! It includes 1 highlighter, 2 blush shades & 9 eyeshadows! I was really shocked with how buttery and good these shades swatched!

The colour story in this palette was DEFINITELY me! I love soft pinky shades and although it looks like the shades are very similar in tones, I can create so many looks with this palette. 
The shade 'Serenity' was a really nice glittery formula that I was actually really shocked to see in such an affordable palette. It was super glittery and glided on so so nicely! 

All shades swatch so beautifully & if you're looking for some pink toned shades on the more affordable side, I would highly recommend this palette! I've linked the palette here!

I then tried the Siennas palette, which leans more on the colourful side, but still so so wearable! This palette contains 21 shadows for £11, BARGAIN. 

Again, a really lovely palette! 

The mattes in this palette did require a little bit more work than the mattes in the Pink Nudes palette, but they still were super buttery and give off good colour pay off! I've linked the Siennas here. 

If I'm honest, I sometimes subconsciously stay away from more affordable brands when it comes to eyeshadows because I feel as if they won't be as good as the more 'higher end' brands, but brands like Profusion continuously remind me that affordable palettes can be just as good, if not better than higher end palettes!

If you're also looking into getting into eyeshadows more/want to build a collection, I'd highly recommend having a browse on the Profusion website and picking up a few! 

Let me know if you have any other questions loves xx

Profusion First Impressions

Physicians Formula has FINALLY arrived to the UK! I have watched SO many American YouTubers/Bloggers rave about Physicians Formula and always wished I could get my hands on their products! Well now, Feel Unique is exclusively stocking Physicians Formula and I couldn't be happier about it. 

I was so kindly invited to the Physicians Formula launch party last week, and was able to try out and take home some products! I've been using them for a week now, and can now give a review on the items I was kindly gifted. All opinions are my own, of course. 

Firstly, Physicians Formula is a very affordable 'drugstore' type brand. The prices are super affordable for the quality, and quite honestly, better than I thought it would be. 

Let's start with The Healthy Foundation. It's priced at £12.99 and I picked up the shade MW3. I was a bit reserved with the foundation as I haven't got along with many drug store foundations. However.. 

It really does what it says and gives you a 'healthy' look. wow. The shade is a tad light for me, so I will have to wait till my tan fades, but I do feel like it gives an amazing healthy glow, and can see myself wearing this on a day time basis! It's medium coverage, but covered up everything I needed it to! After about 5 hours of wear, I did have to blot, but after a quick touch up it was as good as new! 
If you're looking for a new affordable foundation, give this one a go! 

At the event, the first thing I did was go to swatch these Murmuru Butter Lip Creams. They are £7.99 each and have a really good range. I was taken aback with how creamy and hydrating these were! 

From Left to Right the shades I have are; Brazilian Nut, Brazilian Sunset & Mauvin to Brazil! 

Whilst we're on the topic of lipsticks, The Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick are also priced at £7.99, and again a super amazing formula. These dry matte although they didn't look like they would at one point, and I'm wearing 'Berry Healthy' in the selfie above! After eating, the liquid lipstick does need reapplication, but it is not drying and doesn't transfer either! You can't feel it on your lips and I actually really liked how it looked on my lips as it didn't seem into the cracks of my lips and accentuate them (like some other liquid lipsticks do!) 

The shades from Left to Right are; Coral Minerals, Dose of Rose & Berry Healthy! 

There seems to be a lot of different types of Physician Formula mascara on the Feel Unique site, which is great because you can target what you want your mascara to do! I got the Killer Curves Voluptuous mascara to try out, which is priced at £10.99. I am again wearing the mascara in the above selfie! I found it gave my lashes a really nice natural wispy look! It lengthened and did not clump at all! If you are looking for more volume, I would suggest trying a different mascara from Physicians Formula, but if you like the wispy look, this is for you! 

The Murmuru Butter Bronzer in the "deep' shade is priced at £12.99. So far, from the lipsticks, I am a huge fan of the Murmuru range! This did not disappoint, BUT I did not like the application with the applicator it came with. I didn't really know how to use it because it was really hard, but with my usual contour brush, this worked just fine! It's super creamy, and unlike any other bronzer formula I have tried! 

You all know I'm an eyeshadow junkie by now right? There were two eyeshadow formulaes I was given! The Butter eyeshadow palette which is priced at £15.99 and They Healthy Eyeshadow priced at £7.99! I only swatched a few shades! 

The Butter Eyeshadow palettes in Tropical Days: 

Super cute colours, that swatched pretty nicely! They blend really nicely on the eye, and I recommend to use your finger for the shimmer shadows! 

The Healthy Eyeshadow: 

LOVED this one! The shimmers were surprisingly shimmery, and the mattes also worked really well! Usually, I wouldn't even look at drugstore quads because I just don't think the formula is ever any good, but NOPE I really like this one!! 

Overall, I had super positive results with everything I had tried, and as the prices are super affordable, I'd highly recommend you to try a few bits! If I were to just pick three items, I'd recommend The Healthy Liquid Lipstick, the Healthy eyeshadow & the Healthy Foundation!! 

Let me know if you have any questions, loves xx
