The Brow Duo I'm Currently Loving!

Hey beaut's!

I absolutely love doing my brows these days, it's strange really because I used to hate doing my brows and would rarely do anything with them but now I find it so satisfying getting them perfect and on point, no makeup look is complete without a pair of gorgeous brows after all is it! 

Although I do love the look of a perfect pair of brows I'm much more into the fluffy, natural look and this little duo from Technic Cosmetics have been perfect for that! The Technic Arch Envy (£3.50) is great for adding in definition, it has this amazing 'three hair stroke tip' making it so easy to add hair-like strokes which look super natural, it really gives the illusion of thicker brows! The staying power is amazing too, I never have any problems with fading and when I swatched this on my hand it took ages for me to wash it off, all day in-fact! The only negative I have to say about this brow definer is that I've used it up so quickly, so I don't think you get that much product inside, but aside from that I love it!

The Technic Clear Brow Gel (£4.00) is the secret to getting your brows fluffy, the small wand grabs every little hair and sets it in place all day long, if you want textured fluffy brows always brush the product upwards which is what I do to the start and middle of my brows, obviously you don't just have to use this gel to make your brows fluffy, it does indeed set your brows and the product you have used in your brows in place. What I love about this particular brow gel is that it doesn't set hard or go crispy/flaky, it's very natural feeling which is must for me when I look for a brow gel.

If your looking for some new products for your brows that wont break the bank then I really cant recommend these enough, especially that brow gel, it's quickly become my new favourite!

Testing Out Vegan Haircare By Redken!

Hey beaut's!

I've always struggled with knowing what shampoo and conditioner to buy for my hair, I was always one of these gals that will literally just buy any brand of shampoo which was on offer and that was actually damaging my hair, I was also having major problems with my hair being static all the time too so my hairdresser Rachael from Serenity Thetford helped me out as always and gave me a shampoo and conditioner from Redken's new Nature + Science range to try – these are vegan hair products that are designed to combine the power of nature and the performance of Redken!
If your new to Redken or a fan already the new vegan Nature + Science range is great as you still get all of the same haircare technology and benefits of their All Soft, Color Extend and Extreme shampoo and conditioners, but with a new vegan and naturally-derived formula, this is exciting news for anyone who wants to switch to a cleaner, more natural haircare regimen, but does not want to give up the efficacy or performance of their products. The shampoos from the Nature + Science range are made with 83 percent naturally-derived ingredients while the conditioners are made with 99 percent naturally-derived ingredients. Plus, all of the products are sulfate, paraben and silicone-free and the packaging is made with recycled plastic too.
The range I always use by Redken is All Soft so I'm so happy they've created a vegan formula! The All Soft range is perfect for anyone with dry, brittle hair and honestly this  shampoo and conditioner duo leaves my hair feeling so nourished, glossy, healthy and most importantly I never get any annoying static problems anymore, thank goodness! The new formula of the shampoo still foams and lathers up beautifully and the conditioner is gorgeously creamy, both have a really nice zesty fresh scent to them too which is much appreciated!
 I also gave the Redken All Soft Mega Recovery Mask a whirl and LOVED the results! This really intrigued me because the product is actually within a foil cap which you have to pop onto your head and secure for 10 minutes once you have shampooed your hair. I hadn't tried anything like this before but honestly after using it I think it's perfect if your wanting more manageable hair and really want to restore softness and trap in some moisture, it's a little miracle worker really and makes my hair feel INCREDIBLE, likes it's been on it's very own spa day! Whilst the mask is on I like to massage my head so that the super thick formula inside works it's way all around my hair, then after 10 minutes just rinse off and voila! I really recommend this if your hair needs some serious TLC, it's such a treat!
If your in the Norfolk area you can find these Redken products in Serenity Hair Design & BeautyRachael (who cuts my barnet) is the managing directer there and is full of haircare knowledge, honestly shes knows everything there is to know about hair so I really recommend booking in with her if your in the local area! Of course you can find the Redken products online too.

Have you tried any Redken hair products beaut's? What are your favourites? I'd love to know.

Technic Cosmetics 'Invite Only' Eyeshadow Palette!

Hey beaut's!

Can we all just take a second to appreciate how STUNNING the new Technic Cosmetics Invite Only Eyeshadow Palette is, I mean I don't think I've ever seen a prettier, affordable palette if I'm honest! It's safe to say I couldn't wait to get this little beauty onto my eyeballs, and the fact it looks extremely similar to my Huda Beauty New Nude Palette had me intrigued too!
The Technic Cosmetics Invite Only Eyeshadow Palette contains 15 beautiful shades with a mixture of pinks, berries and neutral tones to play with, there 8 matte shades, 4 foiled shimmers, 2 pressed glitters and 1 metallic and wowza theres some show-stopping shades within this palette I tell ya!
For a £6.00 palette the formula of all the shades is pretty good, the mattes have a nice amount of pigmentation and blend out really softly which I like, as for the foiled - those beauties feel as soft as butter, they do appear foiled on the lid and they do sparkle too but I would say not as sparkly as the Huda Beauty palette, but hey your saving yourself some serious dosh with this palette so it's to be expected really. The pressed glitters are lovely, I find using my finger or a damp flat eyeshadow brush applies these best,  there is a little fall out with the glitters but again I expect fall out from any glitter shadow I wear so it wasn't a biggy! Lasting power was good too, I suffer with the dreaded oily eyelid so it always worries me that the cheaper shades will breakdown but they didn't, the only thing I did notice by the end of the day was a little creasing!

Overall if your looking for an affordable palette I cant recommend this one enough, the foiled shades are the star of the show for me as I was honestly shocked at just how well they looked and performed, I was expecting a glittery mess if I'm being completely honest but the foiled shades are actually so dreamy! The mattes are lovely too, they blend out and build up softly which I like and I didn't find them chalky which is always a bonus! For £6.00 you really cant complain, what a bargain!

Whiffy Wax Candle & Wax Melts Review!

Hey beaut's!

If you've read my blog for a while then you'll know that I love to scent my home and recently I gave some wax melts from Whiffy Wax a whirl and couldn't believe how good they where, the scent throw was amazing, they don't break the bank and the amount of scents they have to choose from in phenomenal, even my boyfriends been loving them! Whilst browsing on the Whiffy Wax website I noticed they actually sell designer wax melts that smell like your favourite perfumes, say what!!! Obviously I had to try these ASAP along with one of their jar candles! 

Their are so many perfume inspired wax melts to choose from, I opted for..... 
Daisy - Marc Jacob's Daisy perfume is one of my all time favourites so I just had to try this one, its fresh and super floral and honestly it smells EXACTLY like the perfume!
Ghost - This one is inspired by Ghost The Fragrance and again smells just like perfume, it's fresh and floral with hints of vanilla and apricot which give it a slight sweet kick which I love! 
Decadence - This one is inspired by Marc Jacobs Decadence perfume and having never tried that scent before I didn't know what to expect, it's quite musky and woody and I could see a lot of men liking this one!
Narcisse - Inspired by Chloe Narcisse this one is dominated by daffodils. This scent is super  feminine, sweet, and slightly fruity, I absolutely love it!.
Whiffy Wax also sell candles which come in little glass jar's which are so cute and kitch, they have five different scents to choose from within the candle range and obviously my sweet, sugar loving self got the better of me and I picked out Warm Vanilla & Demerara to try! Warm Vanilla & Demerara is made up of notes of sweet brown sugar, vanilla and musk so as you can imagine it smells good enough to eat and the scent throw is great, it fills my entire house within minutes without being overpowering or sickly, I'm obsessed! The candles are available in two sizes, 60ml which is the smallest candle and has an approximate burn time of 13 hours, and theres a larger 120ml candle which has an approximate burn time of 25 hours. The smaller candle comes in at £5.00 and the larger one is £8.00 so again these are super affordable yet amazing quality!

I seriously cant wait for the Autumn/Winter scents to be released, as you know I'm a huge Autumn/Winter lover and my candle and wax melt addiction gets even bigger then, arhh I actually cant wait!

Magnitone Fuzz Off 3-in-1 Precision Hair Trimmer Review

Hey beaut's!

Magnitone are one of my favourite brands when it comes to makeup removal and cleansing, I have one of their Bare Faced cleansing devices which I use religiously and their wipe out cleansing clothes have recently become something I've enjoyed using as well, however I've never really tried anything from them cosmetics wise....meaning hair removal! Yup Magnitone now how their Fuzz Off 3-in-1 Precision Hair Trimmer and I couldn't wait to put it to the test!
The Fuzz Off 3-in-1 Precision Hair Trimmer* (£30.00) has been designed to quickly and discreetly remove any unwanted female facial-fuzz or stray hairs at home without any pain or discomfort. The trimmer itself is available in pink or white, its lightweight and small so you can easily take it on holiday with you and it charges up by USB so theres no huge plug needed to be carried around either!
The Fuzz Off trimmer is multi-useful and has 3 interchangeable heads, one for fine facial hair removal, one for brow shaping and one for bikini or underarm trimming, along with a comb-guard to alter the trimming length. Each head has plated blades which protect sensitive skin whilst in use which is great for me as I'm such a sensitive soul especially when it comes to hair removal!
 Personally for me this trimmer has been a god send, I always wax my upper lip at home because I absolutely HATE the little fuzzy hairs I get on my upper lip, it's so painful and goes bright red and sore when I wax but now I just use the trimmer head for fine facial hair and it works a treat. The brow trimmer head is great too, shock horror I've never had my brows professionally done I actually pluck and trim them at home myself, but I find the trimmer makes light work of my brow grooming routine, obviously be careful when you first use it because you don't want to shave your brows off (gosh that would be awful) but I'm quite confident when it come to my brows so I've found it quite easy to use! The bikini trimmer head is great at giving you a close shave and gets you ready to feel confident wearing those swimsuits on your holidays!
Overall I think this is a such an amazing device for us ladies, hair removal can be so annoying and I just love how pain free, quick and discreet this is, I never get shaving rashes after using this either and it's fully washable and has a cleaning brush included too! I also think the £30.00 price point is pretty good considering this is something us ladies need to use so frequently and your essentially getting 3 hair removal products in one!
