New Sigma face brushes

Happy Sunday Bloggie readers :)

There's a couple of Sigma brushes that I've had my eye on for absolutely ages so I finally decided to treat myself and get them. I don't order from Sigma too often due to the shipping charges (more on that shortly) but their brushes really are great quality and there's so much choice

I've seen and heard so much hype about the Sigma

Don't lose your lashes! Hello Kitty false eyelash case

Just a quick post :)

I love wearing false lashes and as a result I have quite a few sets. The problem is, they always end up getting left lying around all over the place when I take them off especially when I travel. Then they end up getting ruined, lost or covered in dust etc.

I try to keep them in the original packaging but sometimes it falls apart or gets lost and just isn't a good place to keep them so I decided I needed a solution and got myself this super cute Hello Kitty false eyelash case :)

It has space for

Rimmel lasting finish colour rush balm review

Hey Everyone,

Sorry if I seem ridiculously excited in this post but I'm absolutely loving this product and it's rapidly becoming one of my favourites. I picked up one of the Rimmel lasting finish colour rush balms a few weeks ago and I only got it as there was a 3 for 2 deal in Boots and I needed one more thing. I got the shade 'on fire' which is an orangey red colour. I didn't realise how great it would turn out to be for a random impulse purchase!

I found it super easy to apply and used it early in the morning when I was getting ready for work. I looked in the mirror a few times throughout the morning and I couldn't believe how well it was lasting! I'd eaten breakfast, had several drinks and been talking all morning and the colour was still really vibrant and had barely worn off at all. I find it really difficult to find lip products that last really well so I was a very happy bunny!

I used it on several different days that week in case

Shopping in Brighton

Happy Easter :)

I went to Brighton yesterday for a shopping trip with my sis in law who lives there - I LOVE Brighton! It's the best place ever for shopping. They have loads of really unusual shops that you won't find anywhere else as well as high end stores and all the usual high street stuff too so there's everything you could want.

We started out in North Laines where all the awesome, unique little shops are. I loved all the Easter themed window displays with loads of lovely, pretty things which were begging me to buy them! I really had to restrain myself from buying everything I liked

New eyelash gadget


I just had to do a quick post to tell you about my nifty new eyelash gadget. It's an accent eyelash curler which is basically a tiny version of a regular eyelash curler which makes it much easier to curl individual lashes

Loreal True match foundation review

Hey :)

I've finally got around to trying Loreal True Match foundation which I've been meaning to do for a really long time so I wanted to do a quick review for you. Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on so I got a bit of discount on the usual £9.99 price tag. I always find it difficult to choose the right shade of foundation with the bright lighting most shops seem to have. I went for shade D1.W1 (golden ivory) which is slightly more yellow toned and one of the palest shades they have. They had a good range so everyone should be able to find one to suit them.

Review - My first Glossybox

Hi Everyone,

I've been thinking about signing up to Glossybox for a while now and seeing different bloggers post about their March box made me go for it. For those who aren't familiar with Glossybox it's a subscription service where you get a box each month containing five miniature beauty products and sometimes full size ones. The March box contains four full size products! The value of the products you get should always be more than what you pay each month and the products will be a surprise, you can't choose what you get.

You can sign up on a month to month basis for
