There's quite a few beauty items in my collection that I've never paid full price for. There are many ways you can save money on mid-higher end beauty, with the key for me is being able to shop around.

Today's super quick lunchtime purchase came courtesy of Revlon, after I spied this beauty on its lonesome on the stand (it was fate I tell ya). I've been eyeing this up for a while after spotting it on an American blog. There's a lack of highlighters at the lower end of the market and this one is clearly reminiscent of Bobbi Browns shimmer brick.
The latest (dare I say hyped) beauty product on the highstreet are the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Pencils - £7.99 (currently 3 for 2 at boots). Officially, they're released today but they've been on some stands since last week. As Revlon are my favourite 'drugstore' brand, I picked up the shade striking.
January isn't really a great month for me. I struggle with the blues (apparently today is blue Monday - how apt!). As its freezing outside, I find it quite nice to have a night in with a few pampering products, a magazine or dvd and a few sweet treats.
I spent last night and this morning giving the blog a little refresh for the new year. I'm hoping to make a few templates and offer them for free at some point, when I have some spare time. I'm not a web designer but I kinda like making them and I'm aiming to create some pretty styles. Anyway on to this weeks beauty favourites.
There are a few beauty products I'm looking forward to seeing/buying/window shopping this year. The main one being MAC's Maleficent collection which ties in with the disney movie. A few others that have already caught my eye include Dior's spring collection.
Ahh Nuxe skincare, one of my best discoveries since starting a beauty blog. Nuxe are a french skincare brand widely available in the UK. I adore the melting cleansing gel with rose petals (note to self: must repurchase!) but lately this trio have come to the forefront of my skincare routine.
Blusher is my absolute favourite makeup item. A little blush can help any complexion look brighter. I usually opt for a powder blush but now and again I like a cream texture. Recently, I've been using both textures together to bring an extra flush to my cheeks.
Hello & happy new year! With a new year comes a new skincare routine. I've added a few new products to my routine recently. My complexion has been a little troublesome in past weeks. I used a product that my skin didn't agree with, resulting in a few painful blemishes. I'm not a massive lush fan but I picked up the tea tree toner to help clear up my skin. Tea tree has anti-bacterial properties and I usually find it does the trick in combating spots.
