Gingerbread Spice – Too Faced!

With it being the lead up to Christmas I’m 100% there for all things festive and the scents we associate with Christmas.

When I found out that Too Faced were going to be bringing out a Gingerbread scented palette as part of their Christmas collection it was definitely added to my wish-list!

The palette is a mixture of both matte and shimmer shades which have the cutest festive names. This is definitely the perfect palette for all your Christmas looks, it has such a versatile range of shades you can go from a shopping day to a night out with just the one palette.

So, I’m guessing you all want to see it right?

I think my 3 favourite shades have to be “Spice is nice” which is the orange warm tone, then “Bake it till you make it” the shade under the gold. Lastly followed by “Lookie at my Cookie” which is the baby pink in the second left row.

As with all Too Faced palettes the formula of these is beautiful and blends effortlessly making it perfect for not only MUAs but everyone.

It does retail at £39 which I think is a fair price for the quality and amount of shades in the palette, it’s also in a metal case so definitely protects your shadows when traveling.

At the moment I believe it is sold out everywhere in the U.K. apart from Selfridges, I did however purchase mine from ASOS who do stock Too Faced products.

Is this beauty on your wish list this year?

If you have it what’s your favourite shade?

Not a G&T… try a Skin&T!

I’m sure you will have all heard of the brand Pixi Beauty before? If not where have you been!

I was SUPER excited when a package from Pixi arrived for me last Saturday, I couldn’t wait to see what was inside!

It was a package of their full range of Skin Toners, they have always had the famous “Glow Tonic” but they have recently added to the family and now have “Retinol Tonic” and “Rose Tonic” too! They are all packed with skin essentials but for slightly different purposes.

I thought I would break down what the differences are with each of them and the key ingredients:

Glow Tonic:

Retails at £10 for 100ml

  • Helps to tone and tighten skin
  • Contains 5% Glycolic acid which is a gentle exfoliator
  • Contains Aloe Vera
  • Alcohol free
  • Leaves you with smooth, bright skin

Retinol Tonic:

Retails at £10 for 100ml

  • Youth preserving Retinol Tonic which helps to rejuvenate skin
  • Helps to bring out a youthful glow
  • Soothes sensitive skin, so although it’s retinol it isn’t a no go for sensitive skin
  • Packed with antioxidants
  • Includes Jasmin flower which makes it smell gorgeous

Rose Tonic:

Retails at £10 for 100ml

  • Extremely soothing, calms skin and reduces redness
  • Has various nutrients to balance your skins pH
  • Rehydrates and refreshes skin
  • Gently removes impurities leaving a beautiful complexion

I can not wait to try all three of the tones and get my skin looking perfect! I’m just figuring out which one to go for first! Help needed?!

Have you tried any of the Pixi Toners?

What was your favourite?

Happy “hump” day all!

This week I received a lovely gift from Phase Zero.

They have recently launched two brand new editions to their brand, bronzer and blusher. There are quiet a few different shades to chose from which cater to all skin tones.

These are the two blushers and bronzer I was very kindly gifted:

As you can see they are contained in a matte black rectangular compact, they also have a mirror inside so perfect for using on the go.

I thought it would be good to also show you them individually so you can see the shades I picked.

The Blushers:

Cotton Candy – £7.50

It is a very soft pink shade and perfect for light skin tones or a natural makeup look.

Heart Throb – £7.50

https://www.lovemebeauty.com/productpreview/product/LMB-PZ-BLUSHERS

It is quiet a vibrant pink, you definitely wouldn’t need to apply a lot! I’d say this is the one for medium/ darker skin tones or someone who likes a vibrant glam look.

The Bronzer:

Hidden Agenda – £7.50

https://www.lovemebeauty.com/productpreview;jsessionid=806C9A96BA4E6A30942669957E97D59C.jvm1/product/LMB-PZ-BRONZER

It’s definitely more of a cool toned bronzer. Perfect for also using as a contour shade. I feel it would definitely be better for light / medium tones.

I can definitely say the formula of all three products is spot on, it blends seamlessly and doesn’t go patchy throughout the day. It also has a beautiful coconut / tropical scent which isn’t over powering so if your someone who doesn’t really enjoy scented products this shouldn’t effect you.

I am hoping that more shades will soon arrive in the bronzer as I do need a slightly darker shade for when I have a tan 🙂

*Hint Hint Phase Zero*

Also Phase Zero have given me a discount code to share with you all, if you use “KIRSTYB05” at check out you will get £5 off your order!

Will you be picking any of these beauty’s up?
