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

In 2017 – lets do something different huh? Continue reading

QVC Beauty Box! TILI

QVC have gotten in on the beauty box action and I managed to get hold of one of the second instalment of their TILI box.

TILI Box

TILI stands for ‘Try it love it!’ which is a phrase/guarantee QVC have been using for a while now so it makes sense that they’ve used it as the name of their in-house beauty box. The box comes in at £20 including postage and packing which I must say is an absolute bargain for what you get in it. Continue reading
