WORTH THE HYPE? HUDA BEAUTY DESERT DUSK REVIEW WITH SWATCHES

Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette in depth review


What can I say, I have fallen into a hype and got Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette the moment it launched at Cult Beauty. I was a little vary of various reviews flying around which painted the new palette in less than positive light. Yet, I could not be stopped. I haven’t been buying palettes at all lately. I was able to control myself and managed to skip many big launches like Urban Decay Naked Heat. Huda Beauty Desert Dusk mesmerized me from the moment I laid eyes on the first sneak peeks. I ordered mine within seconds of the launch on Cult Beauty. In fact, I pressed buy now so quickly I forgot to add any free samples I was entitled to! That’s a dedication ladies & gents! After a week of daily testing, I’m coming to you with a review of the newest launch by Hudda Kattan! Was it worth the very steep price point? Is it a love or hate from the first sight?

HOW TO: MEMORABLE ANNIVERSARY #AD


Do you celebrate anniversaries? I personally love those days when you can do something special for your better half. Be that anniversary of friendship or a relationship, it’s important to make it special. People who we choose to surround ourselves with, the relationships we’re in are important, so it’s good to remember those first times and spend a day reminiscing and celebrating the bond we have with them. Today I’d like to share my favorite anniversary memories with you.

3 MASKS TO TRY THIS AUTUMN

3 masks to try this autumn


With a change in seasons, my skin tends to go through a little purging stage. New season, new challenges with heating on (cosy!!) at work and home and change in temperature every time you leave a building, cold winds and rain, your skin surely needs a little special care. The easiest way to add a little extra to your routine is face mask and I’ve been testing a few new ones worth your immediate attention. Ready or not, here they come... (I know, I’m hilarious!) lol.

HOW-TO: FULL COVERAGE BASE THAT LASTS ALL DAY

Add caption


Most recently in my summer summary edit, I talked to you about the importance of good coverage in a base. I never used to appreciated coverage, as it meant heavy cakey finish. I thought it wasn't possible to find a base that not only covers but also lasts all day looking perfect (well ish!) on my dry skin. There are a lot of misconceptions about dry skin. Drier types will experience very similar problems with the foundations that combination and oily types. Lately, I have found the holy grail trio, which allows me to relax as it lasts all day, gives the most flawless finish and covers everything I need covering. This is a how-to for a busy woman, who can't afford to check on her makeup every couple of hours. Boss babe, who rarely finds time for lunch, not to mention a powder top up. Girl boss who walks tall and confident to a 4 o'clock meeting knowing her skin just like her is flawless and ready to take on another challenge. Finally, a woman who finds herself torn between wanting a glowing complexion and getting a full coverage base at the same time. If you too struggle to find that perfect in-between, allow me to show you the three products that will not only allow you to kick arse no matter what time of the day or night it is but also save you time and energy worrying. Late night? I have a concealer that will lighten the hell out of your dark circles and contour at the same time. All in less than 5 minutes in the morning. Are you ready?

SHOPPING FOR YOUR MAN: GIFTS FOR HIM #AD

Gifts for him


So in unrelated beauty news, I have met someone. Being single for a really long time, you don't think it'll happen to you and then one day you find yourself super smitten and already panicking for his upcoming birthday and Christmas. Both in December. Yep, already panicking. I'm such a loser lol! To calm down my anxiety, I came up with a quick wishlist in collaboration with Panasonic, because why not plan ahead? So if your boyfriend, husband or any male friend *wink wink* have a special day coming, maybe it'll help you too?

AUTUMN LIPS WITH BURBERRY

BurberryLiquid Lip Velvet Lipstick


Hello, autumn! I don't know about you, but I've missed autumn a little. I love summer but there's no other time for makeup than autumn. We opt for darker and more sultry looks. Shades become deeper and sexier. We tend to experiment more knowing the heat won't make us sweat it all off within few hours. I love autumnal lips. Give me nudes, purples, and berries every day! Having worn orange reds for whole 2-3 months, I plan on taking the time to discover deeper shades again. I've spoken about my love for them before - POST - but today, I have a very special luxury lipsticks to rave to you about.

END OF SUMMER EDIT: BACK TO THE BASICS, FLAWLESS SKIN & HAIR OOMPH

Summer beauty edit


Welcome back Drama. Welcome back, readers. I haven't been around much, have I? It was a crazy summer & I came out of it with new experiences, friendships and even more. The blog took a step back whilst I sat & evaluated what direction I want it to go. Being a perfectionist doesn't help, believe me. I wrote countless posts and binned them. Life got busier & happier. While I spend the same amount of time on my phone, it's not social media I concentrate on. I went and gotten myself a life, can you believe it? Without a further a'do let's see what I've been obsessed with over summer, shall we?

WINNING AT SKIN: THE BEST OF THE ORDINARY

The Ordinary skincare -worth the hype?

The Ordinary, one of few winning skin care brands under Deciem brand umbrella, has shaken the world of beauty and for a good reason. Bringing award winning formulas stripped to basics has filled the massive gap in the market. The science behind it is simple. Little ingredients, basic, yet totally instagramable packaging got the bloggers and audience alike going crazy. Does anyone remember that little clip of Wayne Goss giving them a shout out? We believed and fell in love with their cheaper than a Friday night cocktail formulas. Now The Ordinary has more of a price range, but with everything still closing well under £20.00. I've tried many products and decided to share with you only creme de la creme of The Ordinary. Are you ready to win at life, ahem skin?
