Trying $1 makeup from Miss A – Review

I’d seen a tweet with some screenshots from Miss A’s website and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing at first. Now I love makeup and I LOVE cheap stuff, so I was hook, lined and sinker from the start. 

They sell makeup, brushes, lashes, self care items, jewellery and accessories. I had a bit of a field day adding bits and bobs to my basket as I just couldn’t believe the price. Low prices don’t always guarantee quality however, but stay tuned for my opinion on the products I tried….

My order from USA to UK took just over a month, but I think it’s important to note that there were no missing products and no damage to what I received. It was packaged really well in bubble wrap and a few other layers of packaging. I had been worried about items arriving damaged so this was a bonus.

My Everyday Makeup Bag

As much as I ADORE makeup, I really haven’t tried all that much! Every now and again I’ll do a little splurge and try some new things and add them to my routine alongside the oldies but goldies. I’m bursting at the seams to try some new products, so if you have any recommendations PLEASE leave them down below – I’d love to see what you love!

I have managed to create a routine whereby I do really like each product and often rebuy elements when they run out. I work 40 hour weeks, so Monday to Friday I do a full face of natural looking makeup and I love spending my half hour in the morning doing it! Each of the products I use are so buildable in so many ways, so I can use the exact same products on a Saturday if I want to glam up a bit more and make a completely different look. (They’re affordable too!)

Chatty Tuesday: Feeling confident without makeup

Welcome to part 2 of my Chatty Tuesday series! Today’s topic is looking at the connection between makeup and confidence.

Do you wear makeup every day? At the weekends? For special occasions? Or not at all? Regardless of how often we apply a multitude of products to our lovely little faces, it’s all for many different reasons. These include: to cover acne and scarring, to hide redness, to enhance what’s already there or to completely transform how we look. We can be a very judgemental society that sticks its nose into other people’s business and what they like to do with their own bodies. Does this impact our confidence levels too?

£25 skincare routine?! (+ Vanity Planet Review)

Good morning, good evening or goodnight wherever you are! Firstly, I hope you’re doing well – I’m currently sat itching to take my makeup off, but ironically wanted to write this skincare post first.

Sometimes stripping things back into their simplest and most affordable form is what we like to see. I’m yet to venture too far out into the world of more high-end items that are classed as an investment. If you’ve got a bank of any pricier products you swear by – please leave them/any links down below! My aim for 2019 (as per my previous post, cheeky plug) is to incorporate more cruelty free items into my routine, and upon writing this, I realised I have quite a long way to go.

However, not everything I use is tested on animals – including the Vanity Planet skin spa, which if you’d like to see a brief review of, please keep reading.
