The Body Shop Skincare ðŸ§–🏼‍♀️

Something that I’ve wanted to address this year is my skincare.

I haven’t been very good at keeping on top of it, especially during the last half of 2019! But, I have finally got around to rectifying that.

I popped into The Body Shop as I have heard really good things about their skincare, I’m a big fan of the brand anyway, so I thought I would give them a try.

My skin has been quite dry recently so I was looking for something to add moisture, I was instantly drawn to their Vitamin E range.

With a bit of help (& thanks to a well timed 3 for 2 deal) I grabbed some bits from this and their Drops of Youth ranges.


Let’s take a look…


These are the two staples that I was looking for, a cream cleanser and a toner. Having these, at least, is a good shot at skincare (& your usual moisturiser of course)

As I said, I went for the Vitamin E range as this is great for adding moisture to your skin. Especially at this time of year, my skin is in much need of it.

I love that freshly cleansed feel with the added refreshment of a cold toner. It’s such a good feeling at the start of a new day and at the end of a long one!

& knowing you are adding moisture and comfort to your skin is great.

That’s why I also picked this up from that range…

This is their Vitamin E ‘Sink-in moisture sleeping mask’

This gives you an intense hydration boost to your skin, at night, which is when your skin needs that moisture and can take it in really well.

I must mention that this range is good for all skin types which is great 👍🏻


From their ‘Drops of youth’s’ range I picked up…

The ‘Youth liquid peel’ & ‘Youth Eye concentrate’.

The peel is very satisfying, as soon as you rub it onto your skin it starts to peel away the dead skin. It leaves your skin feeling super fresh.

The eye concentrate has a metal rollerball applicator which is so refreshing for under/around the eyes. It’s great if you wake up with puffy/sore eyes in the morning.

The final item that I got, as a little extra, since it was 3 for 2 (be rude not to) was their Himalayan charcoal purifying clay wash.

This is a lovely face wash that cleanses and purifies your skin. It also unclogs pores.

It leaves your skin feeling really clear, bright and much smoother.

This is a nice treat, to use every now and then, alongside the other products I picked up.


I am really enjoying using all of these products so far and I’m hoping my skin will thank me for it too… my skin is already feeling softer and my pores smoother.

Have you used any of these products?

What do you think?

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂

Blogmas 2019 Day Thirteen: Festive make up picks ðŸ’„

At this time of year its Christmas parties galore, so I thought that I would put together a few of my make up favourites for the festive period.


Highlighter


This is my favourite make up item. Highlighter is perfect to add a seasonal sparkle and its so pretty!!!

A couple that I use, for going out, as they are super sparkly and a little glittery (a bit much for everyday) are:

Barry m liquid chrome highlighter drops liquid fortune

Barry M Liquid chrome

Revolution liquid highlighter liquid champagne

Revolution liquid highlighter


Face


One of my ultimate favourite products is Charlotte Tillbury’s HollyWood Flawless filter

This product is great for all occasions. It’s very light and just brightens the skin and gives you a lovely glow.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless filter


Eyes


A smoky eye with a little black dress can be awesome for a work do, especially with a statement lip.

But if like me, you like a bit of sparkle (and you suck at creating ‘Smoky eyes’!!) then I’d go for a gold eye look.

I actually use one of my favourite highlighters all across the lid for a quick eye shadow.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Highligher (Discontinued)

This colour looks lovely all over the lid.

These little eye shadow pots by Maybelline are also brilliant for creating a shimmery but speedy eye look.


Lips


I love a Christmassy red lip! Especially for a Christmas party.

Most drug stores do a red lip in their collections and they are usually very reasonably priced too.

A red lip that I bought on the highstreet recently and that defied my expectations is by Essence (Wilkinson’s) called ‘Craving you.’

& finally, one of my favourite bits…


Nails


I got my Christmassy nails ready for my work do this evening. I went for gels and had to go sparkly.

I did an undercoat for both of these glitters and then went for red with a gold accent nail.

I love them ❤


What are your beauty faves at Christmas time ?

What I got for my birthday!


As you may know from my previous post ’28 🥳’ I recently celebrated my 28th birthday.

I love reading/watching peoples ‘What I got for my birthday’ blogs/vlogs so I thought I would do it again this year.


**Disclaimer**

I’m not boasting, I really just like to show my appreciation for my presents and remember them when I look back on my posts & I know some people like these kinds of blog posts too.


Let’s get started.

My main birthday present from my husband Tim was my coffee machine.

I’ve wanted one for a little while but it’s a bit of a luxury so I haven’t bought one, my birthday seemed like a good opportunity to add it to my list and I was very lucky to get one.

Tim bought me the Nespresso Lattissima One.

I love it! Especially the milk frother as it makes delicious lattes, my favourite coffee. 😋

My sister bought me these cute glass mugs to go with it.


I love reading! So I always welcome receiving books for my birthday.

Mrs Hinch’s book was on my list as I like her, her insta is hilarious!! My older sister got me this one.

My work friend got me a little book all about Mindfulness as I really enjoyed the positivity of my ‘Mindfulness March’ challenge.

& Tim chose the book ‘The house across the street’ for me as he thought I would enjoy it 😊


I LOVE bath stuff, especially Lush bath bombs! And I got a good little haul this year. I cant wait to try these all out.

One of the most exciting bath bombs I got was ‘The Comforter’ it’s my absolute fave Lush product as the bubble bar but now it’s a bath bomb too 🙌🏻

I also picked out these lovely bubble baths when me and Tim were in Tesco just before my birthday. They smell incredible.

Fruity and honey/vanilla scents are my ultimate fave when it comes to bubble bath and these are just amazing, they almost smell good enough to eat!!

I also got lots of lovely shower gels and a super cute polka dot travel toiletries bag that can hang up in the shower, pretty & practical!


I got a couple of Harry Potter bits for my birthday too.

I got this cool book from my brother in law which has all the different character wands in it and lots of information about them which is really cool.

I also got this cute little coin purse from my Mum. This is perfect for travelling and when using a smaller bag, plus its in the shape of a golden snitch, what’s not to love!


Along the lines of Harry Potter, my lovely husband Tim bought me and Sarah a Harry Potter activity themed day out in London. We will be having Magical Harry Potter afternoon tea and attending a magical potions cocktail class in the evening. Its going to be so epic, I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!! ⚡⚡

I’ll pop the details below incase you are interested in that kind of thing:

‘The Cauldron’ Cocktail potions class

The Potions Room Afternoon tea


I also got lots of yummy chocolatey treats…

& a great selection of new nail varnishes including some pretty pastels, summery coral and colour changing heat/cool gel nail varnishes.

& the standard birthday pyjamas.


I love my Auntie presents from my favourite little people too 🥰


I hope you enjoyed having a little look at my pressies.

Here’s to my 28th year!

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂

Zoella & Colour Pop collab Make up range ðŸ’„

I’ve really enjoyed Zoe Suggs, ‘Zoella beauty’ ranges for a while now and I got into watching YouTube when I started watching some of her earlier sit down videos, many of which were make up tutorials, so when I saw that she was finally doing a make up collaboration I couldn’t wait to try out some of the pieces.

I love the cute packaging and brunch theme to the whole collection.

Breakfast food is the best food after all!

I chose some of the pieces that I knew I would get a lot of use out of as I haven’t tried any Colour Pop products before so I don’t know what they are like.

I went for the Blusher, Highlighter & one of the liquid eye shadows.


Pressed powder blush ‘Soulmate’

A lovely pink blush.


Pressed powder highlighter ‘Swipe right’

A lovely creamy, gold highlight.


Creme supernova liquid eyeshadow ‘Bellini’

A lovely pinky champagne tone.


They look so pretty on and I have already been using (& loving!) them loads.

I can’t wait for an occasion to wear the eye shadow as it is so pretty. I’m not an every day eyeshadow kind of girl so I’ll be saving this for an occasion.

The highlighter and blusher, on the other hand will, be used daily and are a great addition to an every day make up bag (great staying power, they look good all day)

I also found the prices to be really reasonable too which is great 👍🏻

Blusher & Highlighter ($8/£6) each

Eyeshadow ($7/£5.30) each


Have you tried any of the collection?

Thoughts?!?


Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂

Dior’s New Autumn collection 2018 ðŸ’„

Last weekend I went into Debenhams, more specifically the Dior counter to see my lovely friend who works there.

She wanted to show me, and try out, some of the amazing products from Dior’s latest Autumn collection.

The collection boasts a wide range of products from lipsticks with a new semi matte formula, highlighters, eye shadow and blushers.

They are all so beautiful and I loved trying them out.

So, let’s take a look at the collection…

The collections are the ‘Dior An Diable’ & The ‘DiorRouge Ultra Rouge’

The An Diable collection includes some eye shadow palettes and some beautiful highlighters.

The Ultra Rouge collection is permenant and includes their new Semi matte lipsticks that last for 12 hours!! Within the lipstick collection they have four reds so you can choose your perfect shade. Who doesn’t love a red lip!

It also includes nail varnishes, the colours have been selected to compliment the other products in the range, this is a brilliant idea.

Everything in these collections is Limited edition except for the blushers and highlighters.

So, what products did I try out?

  • The Blusher is no 219 in the shade Rose Montaigne Shimmer.

This is a lovely kinky toned blush with a lovely shimmer running through it. This added a lovely rosy flush to my cheeks.

  • Highlighter Shade no 02.

This is a beautiful highlighter and it is SO pigmented. It gives you a lovely irredescent glow and is just so pretty.

Like the blushers these are the perfect size for popping into your handbag on the go, I’m not a fan of bulky packaging.

  • Ultra Rouge Lipstick in the shade Rouge 485.

This lipstick was a pretty pink tone. As I said it is semi matte but wasn’t at all tacky and it really did last on my lips.

I also love the lipstick packaging, it looks so sleek.

  • Eyeshadow palette in the shade 837 Devilish.

This eye shadow palette is so pretty. I love the range of colours and it has some perfect Autumn shades for day and night time looks.

Those goldy tones and the rosey, burgundy are just beautiful.

The colour I wore was the pretty and subtle pink shade in the top corner.

Again, a super handy size!

I had so much fun trying all these products out and I will be going back in to Debenhams to purchase a few myself!

The collection is well worth checking out, especially for all you make up and beauty lovers out there!

It’s very reasonably priced for such good quality and high end make up.

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂

Part 2: What I got for my Birthday ðŸŽ

So here’s part two! What I got for my birthday. This isn’t a braggy post, I just love seeing what people get for their birthday (nosey I know 🤪) but its a good insight into their interests and personality. I also thought it would be a nice way to show my appreciation for all the lovely gifts that I received this year.

So settle down with a cuppa and let’s take a look.

I’ve categorised this post in order to make it an easier read, enjoy!

Beauty

One of my faves ♡ from my little niece Evie-Mae. This make up bag is so cute!! I love it, and it’s a great size too.

I also got a few make up items. The Tanya Burr ‘Glow Du Cocoa’ palette with a bronzer, super shimmery highlighter and a lip gloss that adds a lovely goldy glow to your lips. This palette is going to be perfect for summer and when I’m on holiday.

I also got two highlighter palettes from my sister Sarah. These are so pretty 😍

The Revolution Pro HD palette, the highlighter palette of dreams.. So pretty. I also got another trio of baked highlighter, also by Revolution.

Sarah also got me some of the Primark nails which are really cool.

I was also given some of Barry Ms new Holographic nail varnishes in their Metals range. I’ve been trying to get hold of these for a while. Definatly check those out.

Skincare/bath/shower stuff

I LOVE bath stuff, bath bombs, yummy smelling shower gels & soaps so I was super pleased with these gifts!

I love the Wilko ‘Fruity’ shower gels, the scents are amazing.

The Lush set that I got was awesome as I havn’t tried any of the items in it before and I love trying lots of new Lush stuff, shower gels & soaps, exciting.

I also got a couple of the Marshmallow bath oils which smell incredible. One of my new faves and your skin feels so soft afterwards.

My husband Tim also got me something I have wanted for AGES!! A bath caddy tray, and it is as epic as I’d imagined. It fits perfectly across the bath, holds my iPad & or phone up safely, has a cup/glass holder and an area just to put your magazine, chocolate etc. Perfect for any bath lover.

Food

I also got a few of my favourite Ciders, which are perfect in the summer when it’s lovely and hot outside 👌🏻

I also got some of my favourite chocolate, the ultimate, a Terrys chocolate orange (that didn’t make it past my birthday) a bag of the segments, crispy m&ms and more! YUM.

Clothes/accessories

I love my ((Bounce)) fitness classes and I finally got a couple of pairs of their leggings. Aren’t they awesome?! So pretty. Love a pair of jazzy leggings.

Harry potter inspired chokers!! Need I say anymore!! Epic.

This purse is so awesome. It’s in the style of the Hogwarts acceptance letter, with the hand written font on one side and the Hogwarts crest & seal on the back, just like the envelopes. SO cool and perfect, if like me, you have loads of loyalty cards as it’s got loads of space inside.

Primark are killin’ it with the Harry Potter merch atm and you can never have too many socks, a birthday staple.

Books

Reading is my single most favourite hobby. I got a couple of novels for my birthday that I had found on Amazon and that sounded really good.

I love Ruth Jones so I was really exited to get her first published novel, it’s called ‘Never Greener’. I also got a novel called ‘The Child’, it sounds so gripping so I can’t wait to get my teeth into that.

My sister also got me the ‘A list a day’ notebook from Paperchase and it is right up my street. I love a list. Any stationary lovers out there, you need this. Such fun!

DVDS

Carrying on with the Ruth Jones theme, I got the last series of her TV sitcom Stella, which I love. I havn’t seen this series & Christmas special so I can’t wait to watch the next instalment in this brilliant series (I can’t believe it’s the end 😭)

I also got ‘The Greatest Showman’. This requires no explanation. A-MAZ-ING. If you havnt seen it, 1. Where have you been? & 2. GO NOW AND WATCH IT.

Giftcards

I was very fortunate to get some lovely vouchers too. Primark, my most fave shop, EVER.

Superdrug, which is perfect as I love buying my nail varnish and make up from there.

& New look, they always have such pretty clothes too.

This calls for one thing.. A SHOPPING SPREE.

& finally,

Other

I got this gorgeous keyring from my two nephew’s, I mean, how super cute is it!?! Love it.

I also got this epic Harry Potter colour changing glass. Perfect topped up with one of those ice cold ciders at a BBQ this summer. Keepin’ my fingers crossed for sun.

My lovely husband Tim also got me the epic present of an Italian themed cooking class. I love cooking and if you’ve followed me on here for a while you’ll know that we LOVE Italy & Italian food so that is going to be so epic (& tasty) I can’t wait.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I’ve been very lucky this year and am super pleased with all my lovely gifts ◇

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂

April Beauty Favourites ðŸŒ¸

As its coming up to the end of April I thought that I would do an April favourites blog post as I havn’t done one of these in aaaaages! And these are some of my favourite blogs/vlogs to read and watch.

I’ve been trying out lots of different make up items this month so I thought it would be cool to make that the focus of my favourites.

So, let’s take a look at the beauty bits I’ve been enjoying throughout April 🌼

I’ve tried two new foundations this month, the Maybelline Super stay 24/7 full coverage foundation, in the shade porcelain and Rimmels match perfection foundation in the shade Ivory.

These are both really lovely foundations with great coverage and they are super affordable. The finish of these makes your skin look really flawless and they make a great base for your make up look.

Tanya Burr’s ‘Peony please’ illuminating powder.

This is just SO pretty. It is honestly one of my favourite make up items Ever.

It’s a great highlighter but also (and this is what I like to do) it is perfect for creating a pretty, fresh and glowy look. I apply this to the apples of my cheeks and along the top of my cheeks bones to give them a gorgeous glowy shimmer that makes your skin look amazing.

If you havn’t tried it I would 100% recommend giving it a go.

Benefit Ka-brow!

This is a fantastic brow product and its super long lasting. It’s creamy formula applies really easily and is great for creating a natural brow look in no time at all. The little angled brush makes it seamless when applying and creating shape and definition to your brow. This is often on offer in Boots so check it out if you are on the look out for a new brow product to try.

Some brushes that I have been loving are these two, as seen above. The large fluffy  brush is by Real Techniques, I love using this to apply the Tanya Burr Illuminator to my cheeks and face.

The face brush at the bottom is also by Real techniques and it is what I’ve been using to apply my concealor/foundation recently and I am loving the finish it gives.

And finally, onto lip products.

Forever a fave… Tanya Burrs ‘Pink Cocoa’ creme lipstick. It is the prettiest nude shade and is so versatile, from everyday make up, evenings out and parties it is such a pretty shade.

I’ve also been loving pinky toned lip colours such as the Nyx soft matte lip cremes, especially the shade ‘Istanbul’. The perfect spring pink.

They are definatly a make up bag staple if you are a lover of liquid lipsticks!!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this insight into my current faves.
Maybe give some a go if your looking for something new to add to your make up collection!

See you soon.

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂

Testing Primark make up palettes- Dupes!

Hi guys!

Hands up who loves Primark!! ✋ Hell yes.

And they have really upped their game when it comes to make up recently. They have a brilliant selection of products and currently some pretty cool dupes of high end make up products. So I thought I would give some a go!

I picked up three palettes, two are eye shadow palettes and one is a contour/eye shadow palette.

DSCN0366

The first two palettes are dupes for the Urban Decay Naked palettes, I went for Primark’s ‘Berry’ and ‘Amber’ palettes.

‘Amber’ channels Autumn for sure, and is a great dupe for the highly sought after Urban Decay Naked ‘Heat’ palette that everyone was crazy for in 2017.

‘Berry’ is more of a smokey palette with a mix of shades from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and the ‘Smokey’ Urban Decay palette. (Okay, I’m going to stop typing the word palette now, I think you get the idea)

Let’s take a closer look at each one!

Amber

This palette is full of lots of orangy, browny, red tones, with a mix of matte and shimmer shades. This palette is perfect for Autumn make up looks and to add a lovely warm glow to your lid.

The colours were really bright and I especially love the golden toned shimmer shades. They are really pigmented and the colours were really build-able on the lid.

7/10

Berry

These pretty purples and pinks make this a great Autumn into Spring palette. Again this palette is super pigmented with a lovely mix of matte and shimmer tones. I love the darker tones that blend really nicely into the crease of your eye lid to create definition and add a smokey feel to your eye shadow look. So pretty.

7/10

Chocolate

This palette smells so yummy. Super sweet and I LOVE the packaging! It has some lovely matte shades as well as the contour shades, but all in all I was a bit disappointed. Although aesthetically pleasing, the powders aren’t very pigmented (See above) and the contour shade is very light (Even for me!!). I tried to build the eye shadow colours on top of each other and although it did add a lovely soft brown colour to my lid they weren’t as build able or pigmented as the other two palettes. It’s a bit of a shame as this would make a lovely everyday palette with its neutral tones.

3/10

I hope you’ve found this useful! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these (& more) in Primark’s Beauty market place, in store. I can’t wait to try out some more of their products, super pleasantly surprised.

What products from Primark’s ranges should I test out next? What would you like me to review?

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂

My new skincare selection!

So, I recently decided to update my skincare collection and try something new. I popped into my local Superdrug and had a browse among the shelves to see what they had to offer.

My skin is a combination of dry/oily and at the moment it is particularly dry (thanks crappy British weather haha). At times my skin has been quite sensitive to certain products so I was also conscious of this too when selecting new products.

I went for six products in Simple’s ‘Kind to skin’ skincare range. They are the sensitive skin experts and are the UK’s No 1 brand with Multi Vitamins included in their products; ‘Simple goodness’ Sounds good to me 👍

Heads up, they were better than half price in Superdrug too so if you like the look of any of these products be sure to grab some soon!

DSCN0435

The products I chose were the ‘Kind to skin’ Vital Vitamin foaming cleanser, the ‘Kind to skin’ Soothing facial toner, the ‘Kind to skin’ hydrating cleansing oil, the ‘Kind to skin’ smoothing facial scrub, the ‘Kind to skin’ refreshing facial wash and finally the ‘Kind to skin’ moisturising facial wash.

Lets take a look at them!

DSCN0452

Vital Vitamin foaming cleanser

This smooth foaming cleanser is perfect for removing impurities and the toughest make up from your skin. It foams up from a liquid and is really light and soft. All you need is a couple of pumps, massaged into wet skin and you feel super clean! I’ve never used a foaming product before but I loved this, I can already tell this is going to become a firm fave!

Soothing facial toner

This product is perfect for toning and refreshing your skin. I felt really refreshed when I applied this to my skin after the cleanser and it left my skin feeling super soft.

Hydrating cleansing oil

I found this product to be super hydrating, and although it seems quite oily (because its an oil durrr) it soaks into your skin really well, it smells great too.

Smoothing facial scrub

This scrub is super gentle on your skin but perfect for getting a smooth, even feel to your face. This worked particularly well on my nose where my pores are more raised. I’m going to use this once a week, although it says if you have oily skin you can use this twice a week, so great for all skin types!

Refreshing facial wash

This is so cooling on your skin.  With vitamin E this is super nourishing and helps  to revive your skin. I used this in the morning and it made me feel really refreshed and awake, perfect for a bit of a pamper.

Moisturising facial wash

This face wash is great for injecting some moisture into your skin when needed. This is obviously similar to the face wash above but I couldn’t decide which one to get so picked up both haha. Like I said at the moment my skin is quite dry so this will be great for adding moisture, where as I can use the other face wash to wake me up in morning!

DSCN0449

This range is so refreshing for my skin and super gentle. My skin feels so soft even after just a few uses and I can’t wait to see the effect it has after using these products for a little while.

 

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂
