A couple of weeks ago, I posted a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko (click here to see the post). As part of the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection, there are powder highlighters which are also available in the permanent Kiko range. I already have the Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter in 01 Champagne, which was included in the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection. This highlighter gives such a beautiful, natural glow to the face that I think it is well worth a post!
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko (click here to see the post). I picked up one of the new blushers from the limited edition ‘Metal Fusion’ collection in the shade 05 Outrageous Tangerine. I am glad I got this blusher as it looks so beautiful and glowy on the cheeks!
Over the past year, Bare Minerals has been launching various new products, including the Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzers. I recently wrote about this bronzer as part of my ‘Make-up For Long and Busy Days’ post (click here to read more) as it is one of my favourite products for adding natural warmth and definition to my face.
I’m fairly new to using bronzer and so I wanted something that would look natural, be easy to use and add some subtle warmth to the face. This particular bronzer ticks all of those boxes for me. I thought it would be fun to write a more detailed post about this product, as I think it is such a natural and easy to use bronzer!

I recently popped into the Kiko Milano store as it has been a while since I have been in there. It was so much browsing and looking at the new limited edition collections, as well as their permanent make-up range. I ended up picking up four products: two from their new limited edition collections and two from their regular make-up line.
I’m going to put up posts on each of these products over the coming weeks, so check back for updates! Click here to read about 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette from the new limited edition ‘Green Me’ collection.

Benefit’s new blusher, Galifornia, is one of my favourite new go-to products for giving me a little ‘pick-me-up’ and that holiday feeling. This blusher adds a fresh, golden-pink glow to my cheeks and transports me to tropical climes with its fresh tropical scent.

In January, I was doing some intensive lecturing work and as part of that, I wanted my make-up to last well across the day. I found some products within my existing make-up collection – and some new products – to be extremely long wearing. Some of them also enabled me to skip parts of my usual make-up routine. I thought it would be fun to put together a post on these products. I might also try and do some more detailed posts on each product as well so let me know if that is something you would like to see!

Kiko recently launched their Holiday 2017 Collection, titled ‘Arctic Holiday’ and includes three baked blushes. I couldn’t resist picking up two of the blushes as they were soooo pretty. The products themselves, the packaging and the outer box are so beautifully presented and look lovely. I think these blushes would make wonderful gifts for any make-up lover or as a special treat for yourself.
Back in July 2016, I wrote a post featuring the Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer (click here to read the post). I really loved this product (and still do!) and it made me curious about the other Sweethearts products. My cousin’s wife mentioned to me that she had purchased the Sweethearts blush in ‘Peach Beach’ and so I thought it would be fun to check out the range.
After swatching (and re-swatching) each of the blushes, I settled on ‘Sparkling Bellini’. This particular blush has now become one of my favourites whenever I want to add a peachy-pink glow to my cheeks. The blush is made up of three complementary shades (more on that below), meaning you can get four different blush effects on your cheeks. Versatile, glowy and peachy-pink cheeks – I love it!
When I’m on holiday, I like my make-up to be effortless and easy. I like to look polished and nicely presented but I don’t want to have to spend much time getting ready. When I’m visiting warmer climates, I also like my make-up to be very light and fresh; I prefer not to have much on my face at all. Over the years, I’ve managed to whittle down my holiday make-up bag to those products that I know I will use.
I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring those products, as I know how hard it can be to leave products behind when you are a make-up lover! This post features my favourite face, eye and lip products for taking on holiday.
I’ve been reading a lot about Charlotte Tilbury products recently and really fancied trying them out. They are very pricey, though, and so I’ve held off buying any of the individual products. The ‘Instant Look in a Palette’, though, really caught my interest as it contains smaller versions of some of Charlotte Tilbury’s most popular products – all in one handy travel-sized palette.
The palette is intended to give you just as it says in the name – an ‘Instant Look in a Palette: 5 Minute Face on the Go’. This product is designed for women who just want a quick and easy way to look polished and naturally beautiful. So an ‘Instant Look’ and a range of Charlotte Tilbury’s products in one palette – sounds good to me!
