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?

September Wish list

Hey All, 👋🏼

So I recently asked on my Instagram stories if my next blog post should be a wish list for September and that got the most votes!

I am FOREVER buying new skincare and make up and the products below are ones I have my eye on this month.

I haven’t included the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk collection as I was lucky enough to be able to order that early and it’s on its way to me! It’s a seriously stunning collection!

So here goes, (pray for my bank balance this month):

Nars – Climax Mascara – £21:

This looked amazing when watching the blogs from the press trip, I much prefer a bigger fluffy brush for my lashes.

You can sign up to the waitlist on Cult Beauty using the below:

Benefit – Brow Contour Pro – £28.50:

This brings back serious childhood memories I absolutely loved the pens with changeable colours so this has gripped me! You get two brow shades and two highlight / conceal shades so it’s a full brow kit in one handy easy to use place.

All shades are blend able and last up to 24 hours. The only reservation I have is how long it would actually last as it is a fair bit more expensive than the other brow products.

You can purchase this using the link below:

Urban Decay – Born to run palette – £39.50:

I mean who wouldn’t want this palette, it has such a stunning range of shades and would be a great travelling palette as you could create so many looks!

I love the formula of UD shadows too, I find they are really easy to work with!

Click below to get your hands on this beauty:

I will be adding other bits as and when they become available and catch my eye!

What are you going to get your hands on this month?
