PRECIOUS METALS – WORTH THE HYPE?

Sleek Precious Metals Review – Is it really worth the blogging hype?

precious metals highlighter review

I maybe late on the band wagon – but hey at least I’m there! Sleek have been doing a mental offer recently, two items for £10 in most Superdrug stores so how could I miss this opportunity!? I have been scouring the Internet for the precious metal highlighting palette review ever since this little beauty came out. And now I’ve managed to bag myself one! But, is it really worth the hype?

I say hype… In the blogging world I feel like there has been a hell of a lot of hype surrounding this palette but my sister actually tried this when it first came out and wasn’t astounded by it so maybe that’s one reason I didn’t jump on it straight away (another being, I’ve been so skint lately ha!) anyway that said, this offer made it hard for me to resist. Let’s jump right in…

I swatched them to show you how Pigmented each pan is. From top to bottom swatches: antique bronze, Renaissance gold, Royal gold and platinum.

I love where Sleek are going with this product it looks much more high end but keeping to a high street budget. The pans included are platinum top left, Royal gold top right, Renaissance gold bottom left and antique bronze bottoms right. All of them are cream products except the antique bronze powder in the bottom right. I have used the platinum highlight to strobe my nose length, cupids bow and to highlight underneath my brows. The staying power of this palette is good, I use a fixing spray after I’ve finished my makeup so this also might help if you do find the product sliding around. But I find if I apply it with my beauty blender in patting motions rather than sliding motions I don’t have this problem anyway.

100% worth the hype! It gives a gorgeous buildable highlight which you can easily control. You’ll be a shimmering fairy in no time with this product! My favourite in this palette has to be the platinum, I think it’s incredibly versatile and not like any other highlight I’ve found so far! What’s your favourite from this palette? 

Hope you’re all doing fabulous. Lots of love xxx

YOU NEED TO TRY THIS! DIY BLACK HEAD FACE MASK

DIY Blackhead Peel Face Mask – Easy Recipe

DIY Black head removal peel off face mask and demo.

The latest makeup trends of 2016 include baking, strobing and highlighting your face to look like you have beautiful glowing skin. But where does these trends start beauties? SKINCARE! Piling on concealer, foundation, primer, contour creams and highlighters can clog up those pores leaving your skin your worst enemy! So every once a week we should really pamper our faces, renew our dead skin cells and get rid of unnecessary clogged up pores. I have seen peel off face masks everywhere claiming to remove black heads at a hefty price. Now if the product does what it says on the tin then it’s worth paying for, but what if I told you you could get the same affect for under £5 !?

Want super soft blackhead free skin? Try this affordable DIY face mask.

Please everyone don’t forget to use non toxic children’s school glue, also remember everyones skin type is different so please do a small patch test before putting anything onto your body. 

It would be amazing if you could share the love and subscribe lovelies 😀

 

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Children’s Non-toxic glue
  • Activated charcoal
  • Mixing bowl and mixing brush

 

DIRECTIONS:

Pop a table spoon of glue into a bowl. Add around 2 table spoons of charcoal and mix into a smooth consistency. Pop it onto your face for around 30 mins (you can use a hair dryer to speed up the process). Peel off from the bottom upwards and avoid right under the eyes as this area of skin is a lot thinner than the rest of your face.

 

You will find silky soft black head free skin underneath! Give it a go now!

FEBRUARY FAVOURITES PART TWO

Canon camera Iphone 6s Laptopentertainment

Part Two of my February Favourites this month is the entertainment I’ve been loving in my life! Apart from blogging myself, all of my free time has been filled with YouTube (OBVS) and reading lovely blog posts so I thought I’d share my absolute favs this month, some newly discovered and some I’m a major fan girl of (23 year olds can still fan girl, right!?).

YouTubers 2016

Rosanna PierceWhere am I without Rosi’oke? Rosi is a YouTuber I have watched for years. She’s someone I love and would miss so much if she disappeared of the YouTube scene, she’s so genuine and unlike some of the women we’re forced to look up to in the media, I genuinely think her honesty and opinions are so inspiring for young girls to look up to. Did I mention she’s absolutely fabulous with make-up too? (I hope you said absolutely fabulous in a Jennifer Saunders -esque tone, please say you did ?)

feb favesyoutubersWhere do I start with this one? Mika from Wild Daze is one of many YouTubers who inspired me to become vegetarian (nope I haven’t attempted to become a vegan just yet…but I will!) Her vlogs and hair videos are my life, her fashion style is my life, I really look up to her as a sassy style icon…When someone is just themselves and super comfortable in their own skin (not to mention super hot) I think they’re always gonna be an easy contender to be a style icon. She’s a super quirky fun loving cool dude who is soo motivational – this parts the best bit…! She spreads so much positivity in her ‘how to’ vids ..You obvs know about this girly – but if you don’t go check her link below you’ll love her!

 

Ebony Day VlogsEbony is SOO watchable, her laugh is just so infectious…when I watch her vlogs I genuinely feel like her friend haha. I love the fact she got matching tattoos with her boyfriend and her she told her mum in a YouTube video, her mum acted so well I know my mum would probably cut my arm off ha! Total babe and absolutely hilarious.. Not only that, she has an incredible voice over on her music channel. You will defs of heard her voice, who hasn’t?

Fashion Bloggerfeb faves bloggerI’ve known about CJs blog for maybe a year or so? He’s super creative, if you didn’t know by his URL 😉 – Love everything about his blog, from his list posts to his photography posts he not only inspires me to write more varied posts but I learn so much from his blogging. Knowing him from Twitter – I know he’s super lovely as well! If you ever was to spark up a chat with him he would always make you feel welcome.

feb faves blog 2Rachel is someone I found through CJ. ( Thanks CJ 😀 ) Her blog is so heart felt and personable, she really makes you think while reading her posts too, which I love. Love her posts about feminism, beauty and general day to day life. Again Rachel is super lovely on Twitter… Really inspiring me to post more frequently and be apart of the blogging game.

feb faves bloggers2Corinne is just on another level of blogging – she’s SO knowledgable.Her blog isn’t just a pretty face. Every time I read her blog I leave having learnt about ten different things. Her food posts really make me want to get in the kitchen and become the next Jamie Oliver (that or eat my laptop).. Corinne is  definitely a blogger I have learnt the most from and I will always be a returning visiter! Go check her out!

CHILLI CHALLENGE

Chillie Challenge 2016

For those of you who have seen mine and my boyfriend’s first chilli challenge, eating the British Komodo Dragon Chilli you will know how much pain and suffering we endured … A little exaggeration there Imogen No but seriously, there was pain, stomach cramps, tears and sweat. It wasn’t pretty! (If you didn’t here it is)

You would have thought it’s scarred us for life!
NOPE…We took it to the next level and were stupid enough to try the Carolina Reaper. This time we went fully loaded on the Ice Cream front.
Here goes…
