Charlotte Tilbury Haul 8

Charlotte Tilbury Haul 15

I was so excited to post this haul on here straight away. Unfortunately, my splurge last month coincided with my Dad taking back his fancy camera that he has kindly been allowing me the use of! These products are just too pretty for iPhone snaps. So I waited (not at all patiently, not even gonna lie) until he gave me fancy cam back. And it was bloody hard not to give them all a real good test drive in the meantime as I’m sure you can imagine!

Anyway, as if I have that much will power! The lipstick was the first casualty, then the lip liner, I HAD to try the sample of magic cream before a rare night out, and I used the eyeliner for a makeup look post see here. Finally, even though I have a new recent mascara love (makeup forever smokey lash), I decided I wasn’t likely to do the mini ‘Legendary lashes’ any harm by giving it a try! Basically, I used almost everything. Sod it. At least I can give you a few opinions. And as long as you don’t mind pictures of slightly used products, we alllll good!

The only thing I knew I wanted to try from CT was the lip liner. That aside I was going in pretty blind as there isn’t a counter that local to where I live.

When I saw this ‘Quick ‘N’ Easy’ makeup set in the Summer sale I thought it was a good way to introduce me to the brand. It was also a steal at £38 (+ 30% off with pro discount). Included in it is a mini (4ml) Legendary Lashes Black mascara, a full-sized Rock ‘n’ Kohl liquid eye pencil, a full-sized colour chameleon eyeshadow crayon and a full-sized lipstick.

Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon ‘Black diamonds’

Aside from a couple of the samples, this is the only full-sized product that I haven’t used yet. What I can tell you is that the formula is extremely smooth and easy to apply. Also, that swatch ☝️would not budge from my arm until the evening when I was in the shower. So I have very high hopes for it!

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick ‘Penelope Pink’

I don’t think that of all the shades of lipstick Charlotte Tilbury has that I would have picked out this lipstick in particular. But I was very happy that it was included in the quick ‘n’ easy makeup kit. As you can see I’ve used it quite a bit over the past month! It’s a really pretty Peachy-Pink nude that works well on me when I have a bit of a tan! I posted a full review here if you are interested in finding out more.

Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes mini (4ml)

As I mentioned I have given this a go already. But to be honest I was in such a rush to get ready that day and all I did was give my lashes one very quick coat. So it wouldn’t be fair to write any kind of review. What I do recall noticing is that it didn’t flake or smudge throughout the day! So yay for that!

Charlotte Tilbury ROCK'N'KOHL liquid eye pencil 'Bedroom Black'

Charlotte Tilbury ROCK’N’KOHL liquid eye pencil ‘Bedroom Black’

This is one of the creamiest and most opaque Kohl liners I’ve ever used!! Unfortunately, my eyes are so sensitive and watery at the minute. I just can’t wear eyeliner without ending up looking like Heath Ledger’s Joker. I’m not happy about this at all! But I would highly recommend this if you are on the lookout for a decent black eyeliner!

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat ‘Pillow Talk’

Charlotte Tilbury Haul 8

My excitement was off the scale when it came to trying this out for the first time. I hate to be negative because it really is a lovely pencil in terms of formula, colour, and packaging. But I had picked up such a similar one (in all aspects) from Primark the week before that it was hard to get too excited about having spent more money on something near identical! So if you fancy a cheap alternative to ‘pillow talk’ check out this post.

Charlotte Tilbury Haul 17

The samples I chose with my order were the Overnight Bronze and Glow mask which I’m going to use next week before a night out (looking forward to both!!) The Magic cream which went a similar way to the mascara, totally rushing before I left the house that I barely paid it any attention. I do have some left though so hopefully I can try again! Then the Two lipstick samples I got were the K.I.S.S.I.N.G ‘Nude Kate’- a pale pink nude which I’m yet to try. I also got the matte revolution in the shade ‘Very Victoria.’ Which is an absolutely stunning Taupe nude and is now very firmly on my wishlist! Loved, loved, loved it!!

I’d definitely recommend checking out the Quick ‘n’ easy makeup kits which I believe are limited edition. Even at full price (£55), they are such good value for money! The products inside total around £20 more when bought separately. Plus you get a cute makeup bag too! Good times!!

Top Amazon Beauty Bargains.

I always buy my eyelashes in bulk from Amazon for my makeup kit because the prices are so good! Recently Bob got Amazon Prime membership so I’m a lot more interested in purchasing through the site than ever. Last week while stocking up on lashes, glue and lash applicators, I decided to have a browse around the beauty section and was surprised to find that Amazon stock Tarte cosmetics. I’m unsure if everybody already knows that there are higher end brand cosmetics to be had on Amazon. But for the sake of this post, I’m assuming that you are as behind the door as I was about it.

Certain products like Kat Von D and Too faced are actually way more expensive to purchase through Amazon and you might as well just order from another online store. However, I had a dig around and compared prices to find a few beauty bargains to share with you.

 

Real Techniques-Eyes-Starter Set £11.00

I love Real Techniques brushes. The sets are always such good value for money at full price. They are so well made, they work really well and they last a decent amount of time. At £11.00 and eligible for Prime delivery this eye starter set which contains 5 full sized eye brushes and a carry case which folds into a brush stand is amazing value for money. Perfect for anybody that want’s to build up a brush collection without spending a fortune.

theBalm- Mary-Lou Manizer £15.00

I was so excited when I found this! The cult highlighter from theBalm ‘Mary-Lou Manizer’ is one that I have always meant to buy but never gotten around to actually getting! At £15 for a full sized product, this is definitely back on my radar! And in my basket, as we speak! Yes!!

theBalm  Pickup Liner- ‘Chemistry’ £4.74


Another theBalm bargain to be had! At £4.74 and eligible for Prime delivery I had to add this lip liner into the mix! There are 8 shades in the ‘Pickup’ liner range and I can find 7 on Amazon. The other shades do vary in price and none are as bargainous as this particular one. But they are still cheaper to purchase through Amazon overall. There are actually tonnes of theBalm bargains to be had if you scout around the site. So much so that I think I could have made this whole post on the brand alone!

Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette £44.99

Tarte-cosmetics-Amazonian-clay-matte-eyeshadow-palette
OK so now this is turning into more of a personal wish list kind of post!! Beauty blogging is dangerous!! As I mentioned I had noticed that Tarte cosmetics are available on Amazon. As the brand isn’t readily available in the UK this is very exciting! Of course, we have to pay a little extra for the privilege. But it seems that over here Amazon is a good place to go for this brand right now. Although the saving is only a few pounds vs buying directly from Tarte US. Not eligible for Prime delivery the cheapest delivery option for this palette is £5 so in total it’ll cost you £50. I want it!

Ardell Demi Wispies Natural multipack x4 pairs lashes £8.76

I thought I’d end this post (for the sake of my own bank balance) with the lashes that I always order from Amazon. I am never without the Ardell demi wispies in my professional kit as they are such a universally flattering eyelash! My brides love them. And they are my personal favourites to wear on a night out. I haven’t found a better price for these lashes. And they are eligible for Prime delivery so I had to add them in!

Hopefully, this post was helpful. I can’t believe the amount of beauty brands that are actually on offer on Amazon! So this has been an interesting post for me to put together. The links used are affiliate links which means I would receive a small percentage of any sales made through them at no extra cost to you. By all means feel free just to search the products if you prefer to.

Do let me know if you like this type of post. There are so many products available that I think I could do several!!

I Started Vlogging!!

.

So I’ve mentioned once or twice that I would love to try my hand at vlogging. I’ve had a YouTube channel for years which I have dipped in and out of and never really taken too seriously. I’ve mainly used it to post Primark Hauls that translate a bit better through a video rather than photographs.

The other day without any forward thinking I switched the camera on and started chatting away. I clearly had no intentions of beginning a vlog as I’m wearing a massive hoodie (hood up looking all A- from PLL!) and no makeup. At 33 I’m pretty much over caring what I look like without makeup.

 

So I vlogged a rainy day where it was just me and Finn at home and showed how blogging looks behind the scenes with a 2-year-old in tow! I really enjoyed it and I love the editing process.I’ve carried on filming and introduced Finn’s Dad into the mix tonight. After he came home from 4 days away working. Poor sod! I bet he wanted to turn round and go back!

So I’ll hopefully get into the swing of chatting to the camera.It’s a weird thing to do! I’m planning to film more day in the life videos and take the camera on makeup jobs with me. So that should make for some interesting footage (I hope!) Anyway normal blogging will resume on here. I thought I’d just pop a link to my channel here in case you fancy checking it out. If you do I’d be really chuffed and I’d love to know what you think?
