Anti-Haul! AKA What I’m Not Gonna Buy

Anti-haulAnti-hauls are a trend that’s taken off on YouTube thanks to the amazing and socially conscious vlogger Kimberly Clark. If you haven’t checked her out on the ‘tube you really should, she’s one of the few channels I subscribe to.

So these are the products and brands that came to mind as things that for one reason or another I am not going to buy! I don’t have a theme for this selection it’s just what came to mind or is bothering me at the moment. So without further ado, these are what I’m not going to be buying: Continue reading

Nearly Summer!

I can’t believe that the school year is nearly over. I have three assessments left to complete and then I’ll be finished up on my college course and ready for the next steps which I hope to know more about and be able to share with you all very soon. Yes, plans are afoot!
I plan to spend the summer gaining more experience (practice, practice, practice is the name of the game!) Sculpting with clay to improve those skills and doing any day courses I can find as well as catching up with my friends. I also hope to have a little more time to spend here doing some blogging as I know I’ve been a little distracted of late.

While I’m here, just a quick reminder to enter my giveaway over on the Nip + Fab Haul/Review post in case you haven’t already. It’s super easy to sign up to subscribe to the blog and then you can get two more chances by visiting me on Facebook or following me on Instagram. Good luck to all who have entered!

What are your plans for the summer? Are there any products you really want me to review here on Bendy Beauty? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook/Twitter,

Nip + Fab Make-Up Haul, Review, Swatches & Give-away!

Nip + Fab Make-up Range
I’m a little out of breath after such a long title! It’s pretty exciting stuff though, popular skincare brand Nip + Fab have released a make-up collection!

Naturally, as soon as I was well enough and able to pop down the shops and bag me some of their goodies I did so. I wanted to buy the foundation in person rather than online so I could choose the right shade for me. This is something I always recommend doing if possible. If necessary take a tiny pot with you to put a pump of the tester in to take away and try in daylight.

In my Nip + Fab haul were foundation, matching concealer, the eyeshadow palette, and travel palette. I received a gift with my purchase of a little cosmetics pouch with a liquid lipstick, lip liner and mascara inside. I have another one of these pouches to give away so keep reading to the end to find out how you can win it for yourself.  Continue reading

Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Facial Oil

I’m coming to the end of my third bottle of this stuff now so I figured it’s really about time I told you all how much I love it!

It’s full title is Rose Hydrate Miracle Makeover Facial Oil. What a mouthful!

This oil is great before a cream cleanser for those who wear make-up daily. It’s also good for those who enjoy facial massage as well as being a gentle first cleanse for people who like to double cleanse.

It is quite a versatile oil I find, as well as feeling like a real pamper with it’s beautiful rose damask fragrance. Continue reading
