The Ultimate Overnight Mask: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque

I think I’m having a mask moment on Essential Twenty, and I’m not even sorry. I’m obsessed with trying new face masks and since I’m a beauty blogger it just makes sense to talk about them. So talk about them I will.

Kiehls Front

In the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque* I feel I may have found my holy grail, ride or die, forever repurchase mask, and I’ve only used it a couple of times. It’s that good that I’m willing to make this statement early on.

Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes 2: The Ultimate Palette

I’m truly a believer of not having to spend a lot of money to get a good product, and the Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes 2 Palette is a great example of this.

Have you noticed that there are not a lot of matte tones in palettes so you have to use about four palettes for a decent eye look? Well I have now cut that down to two palettes because this gives me perfect crease shades.

L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask

I feel like every blogger and her mum has spoken about one of the three face masks that L’Oreal have brought out recently. Made with a blend of three clays and one extra ingredient, these have been snatched up by bloggers everywhere and I had to give into the hype and grab one myself.

I opted for the Glow Mask, although it was a close call between this one and the Purity Mask, and tested it out so that I could share it with you.

Skincare Repurchased

I love skincare products. Like, really love skincare products. I’m always trying something new, whether that’s a mask or a cream or a toner. I just really enjoy trying out new things. Maybe not the best for my skin really, since I can’t find a routine that I love.

But there are some products that I will always repurchase once I’ve run out. In fact, there are 5 items that I have repurchased more times that I’d like to admit!

MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighting Powders

Highlighting has been having it’s time for about a year now, and I can’t see this moment ending any time soon. Pretty much every makeup brand out there has a highlighter and you can grab your shade and your amount of shimmer from somewhere.

MUA’s offering comes in three shades and retails for £3 per 7.5g pan. I fee like this a is a highlighter that a lot of people own but it’s difficult to find reviews on them so I thought I’d throw in my two cents.

My Eye Base Picks

We all know that eyeshadow never lasts how you want it to. I have a problem with it, and I don’t even have oily eye lids! I din’t even own an eyelid primer until just over a year ago but my life changed the moment that I picked one up.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve got three types of bases that I reach for on a semi-regular basis for different reasons and I want to share with you why I choose one over the other, as well as tips to prolong your eyeshadow wear. And I’ll try to find cheaper alternatives for a couple if I can!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

When I was in America last summer, I had a list as long as my arm of products that I wanted to buy and a lot of those were NYX products. Unfortunately I didn’t get into a proper drugstore and only managed to grab myself a couple of Butter Glosses, but I wasn’t overly heartbroken (because I spent about $250 on other makeup whoops).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

However, when I saw that NYX were coming into Boots I had to make an order straight away. I’ve slowly been building my collection but the Soft Matte Lip Creams were at the top of my list and since their introduction to the mainstream in the UK, I’ve got my hands on three.

Summer Barbecue Extras with Odysea

I like to think that I’m a reasonable cook (styling my photos not to much, but I can cook) and I’m fairly open to trying new things. When I was sent over a few goodies from Odysea I knew I had to get to searching for the perfect recipes to match them.

Today I’m sharing with you a dip and a drink, perfect for your summer barbecues (which you’ll hopefully still get for a few more weeks!).Read More »

My Face Mask Stash

If you caught Sunday’s post, you’ll know that I do not need to be buying any more beauty products but I can’t help but try out new face masks all the time. To be honest, I didn’t actually realise how many I had until that post because they were all over the place (with some in my bathroom, some in my drawer and some in my box of products to blog about).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I never really write about things in my skincare collection too often because I take them for granted, so I thought this would be a great way to throw in a few mini reviews too. Maybe you’ll find a mask you need to try!
