Last week I received this lovely package full of Redken products, worth £100.
I've never actually used any of their products before now and being a hairdresser, this is pretty exciting for me as Redken are well known for being great products!
The packaging looks great, it's got a really chic look to it and they also smell wonderful too.

Clockwise from top left corner
All available from Redken.

I'm going to give the megamask a trial run first along with the shampoo and conditioner before I use the others, as hairspray isn't something I use on a frequent basis and I don't use heat on my hair too frequently either to try out the blowdry primer just yet but I'll get there with it all and should do a follow up post about it too :)




It's Glossybox time again and it's the first box of 2018!
There's a bit of a theme to the box this month and it makes total sense after all the indulging that the majority of us did over the festive period - it's rebooting and rejuvenating. I'm definitely excited to try out this stuff!
So let's move on to what was inside this months box (I had issues with trying to capture a picture decent enough to fit everything in, so I've spaced things out this time).
1. EVELYN IONA COSMETICS GREEN TEA PRIMER - I'm actually pretty excited to try this out, I'm a big lover of green tea (you're probably cringing at me for saying that) and the benefits you get from drinking it. The primer is paraben free too, which is a bonus and you can get this from for £22.
2. NAIL MEDIC NAIL AND CUTICLE ENERGIZER - A product design to care for you nails, which if any of you are like me and you wear false ones fairly often, are in need of something like this. It includes a mixture of  vitamins, plant extracts, revitalising eucalyptus and soothing lavender. Available from for £5.99.
3. APICIA CREAM BLUSH - I'm not actually a fan of cream blush but I did find this okay to use, it blended nicely and it is also rich in organic bee pollen which is supposed to nourish your skin. However, I do think that I'll probably be sticking to powder blush. Available from for £22.
4. DR BOTANICALS MOROCCAN ROSE SUPERFOOD FACIAL OIL TRAVEL SIZE - This has to be the product I'm most excited about in this months box. I really like to take care of my skin and although I already use Tarte Comsetics' Maracuja oil, I'm looking forward to giving this a trial to see how well this agrees with my skin too! £55.
5. BOOTS BEAUTY BENEATH SUPPLEMENTS - Lastly we have the beauty supplements from Boots and I'm going to be really honest and let you know that I won't be trying these because I don't feel like they will do much for me BUT my mum will be trying them out and hopefully they will help her with her complexion. £39.99.

I'm pretty happy with this months box, it was most definitely worth a fair amount this time and I'm glad that was no more body wash in this one!
Looking forward to what next months box brings me. Don't forget to use my code when sign up, to receive 20% discount on your first box  AMY-R29.


Happy New Year!


First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Second of all, apologies for the lack of posts over the festive period, it was a busy time at work for me and also I had a nice break afterwards and didn’t do a thing, except take the dogs for a walk.
So as a heads up for this month, the posts might be a tad slow due to coursework, prepping for travel and also re-decorating my make-up studio, it’s over due and is the time that I can get it done but there will be some posts! I have a make up project I want to get done soon, too! 😊
Thanks for sticking with me!




December's Glossybox has entered the building! Okay it actually arrived like 3 days ago but hey ho.
So this month's box appeared to have a little bit of a rose gold theme going on inside, with the products etc and the shredded tissue paper too, which gave it such a festive feel and the box is pretty cute this month too. It's not the classic pink box!

1. NAOBAY EQUILIBRIA GEL TO MILK CLEANSER - Again I'm not sure when I'll get around to using this because I seem to have got something along the lines of this in almost every box and what with my sensitive skin, I'm warey of new stuff like this.
2. STEVE LAURANT PRECISION TIP EYELINER - I've already tried this and I really like it and I also needed a new one to move onto, so thank you Glossybox! It has such a nice tip and allows me to draw my liner well and sharp.
3. LAAQ & CO CLOUD LIPS - This has such a nice texture to it and it's also a really nice colour that got sent in my box this month. The rose gold packaging is so elegant looking too, I love it!
4. RAFFAELO - I'm not keen on this so I'll throw it to one of the family members if they want it, can I have another Kinder Bueno next time please? Haha.
5. SOAPER DUPER BODY WASH - More body wash! I'm actually really digging the name of this brand and I think I'm going to risk using this fairly soon, maybe when I have a shower next... It has a free from formula too so I should be pretty good going ahead with this one! How cute is the bottle too? I have to tell you how good it smells as well, it's delicious.
6. MODEL CO 3D LASH PRIMER - I haven't used this yet but I'm sure I will pretty soon, I feel like it's going to have a good effect on my lash look but we'll see!

I told you the box for this month was cute, didn't I? And did you see what I meant about the rose gold theme that appears to be going on inside the box? So now it's time to make the most of these products and look forward to January's box, it'll be a right little treat when things get depressing in the new year ;)

I really wanted to get these brushes when they were released for Halloween but it just wasn't meant to be until Unicorn Cosmetics had a glorious 50% sale for Black Friday and that my friends, is when I jumped on these brushes faster than you could say Jim.
Anyway, what's so cool about these brushes? I'll show you. They're spooky in a heat sensitive kind of way. When they're cool, they're darker and when they're warmed by your touch, they turn lighter in colour.
See what I mean with the colour changing? Cool isn't it?
The case they come in is also spooky themed which made them ideal for Halloween and I'm really fond of Unicorn Cosmetics make up brushes. I now own a few of their sets! They're such soft brushes and they apply make up well too, they're not scratchy like some brushes are, regardless of how much you pay for them at times. 
Don't forget to drop by and give their website a browse, even their lashes are gorgeous (I have some of those too).




November's box was skin care and a touch of make up!
I haven't yet used all of the products but I do get excited when there's a new make up brush to add to my collection of brushes. New brushes are the best. Just to let you know, the rock wasn't involved in the box, it's just something I have that fit the picture.

In this box we have the following:
1. BOOTS INGREDIENTS SHEET FACE MASK CHAROL & WILLOW BARK - I still haven’t used this mask yet and I’m a little bit reluctant to even try it, just because I have sensitive skin but perhaps I’ll get around to it over the festive period when I have some time off work to hide if my skin goes weird ha!
2. BEAUTY UK CONTOUR/POWDER BRUSH - I was so happy to see this in the box because who doesn’t love a brand new brush to add to their collection? You can never have too many brushes and this one is good quality, although I hadn’t actually heard of Beauty UK before I received this box.
3. CCOLLECTION EYEBROW POWDER - This actually has quite a nice feel to it but I’m still yet to give it a full trial on how well it lasts etc, although I’m sure that it lasts well! Another one to try out for longer over the festive period I guess.
4. GREEN FROG BOTANIX NATURAL BODY WASH - This smelt lovely when I opened it up as it’s Geranium and Peppermint so it’s good for the skin and who doesn’t need more body wash anyway? You can never have too much!
5. SPORTFX CANDY FLOSS LIP BALM - Apparently this was created especially for the November edition of Glossybox which is pretty neat! It’s really cute and I have a thing for lip balms, I’ve always got one with me.

So there we have November’s box and December’s box is on its way in the mail to me so I’ll be posting about that after it arrives in the next few days! Are any of you signed up to Glossybox?

Stunna Lip Paint


Fenty beauty strikes again!
I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this lip paint, purely because I love a vintage looking red and that's what this colour was looking like to me in the advertisement. Not only that but I didn't have a red liquid lipstick that I could use, only my MAC lipsticks but this sweet baby of a lip colour is so universal, Rihanna really has put some heart into getting a red that will suit everyone!
Aside from the colour and how good the product is (it's so easy to apply, I only needed one coat and it felt so light to wear!), the packaging is also so beautiful and gives such an expensive look to the product as well. Honestly if you're looking for a new red then I would highly recommend anyone trying it!
