Barry M Holographic Lip Toppers

With summer and festival season approaching, shimmer makeup is making a speedy return to beauty shelves. Barry M has launched a holographic range to add an iridescent glow to makeup. One of the easiest ways to switch up your look is with these new Holographic Lip Toppers (£4.99).

They contain light reflecting particles that instantly transform lips and add a holographic, glossy shimmer.

As you can see they are suuper sparkly! They come in four shades; Spellbound, clear, Wizard, blue, Mermaid, pink, and Hex, purple. They van be used alone or over the top of lipstick.

I tested out the shade Mermaid and can confirm that these WORK! I used it over the top of a pink lipstick and it instantly made my lips popped and the bold shimmer lasted hours.

These are amazing value and a great addition to any makeup bag. If you're unsure of which colour to get I'd go for Spellbound as it can be used over any colour lipstick.

Available from Boots, Superdrug and direct from Barry M.

A Magnetic Face Mask?

It seems the days of the humble mud mask are gone. There are now peel-off face masks, self heating masks and even bubbling face masks. But I was even more surprised when I came across a magnetic face mask (yes, magnetic?!) from Amour Noir.

Admittedly when it arrived I was a little sceptical and put off using it for a while as I was worried it might be too much of a faff, however, when I had an afternoon off work I decided to put it to the test.

So before getting into the nitty gritty, I'll go through what I knew about the mask beforehand. It comes in a neatly packaged box with a plastic application spoon and a small circular magnet on a handle.

The box states that the mask will give you clean, radiant skin and contains Dead Sea Minerals which work to retain moisture and help keep skin looking youthful. The magnet technology works to pull the mask away from the skin, in turn removing any impurities to cleanse pores.

Makeup brushes for contouring

When it comes to contouring there are SO many makeup palettes to make the process earlier, but when it comes to application it is key that you have the right tools. There are plenty of makeup brushes made specifically for contouring, so I thought I'd share with you some of my top selections...

Pixi Rose Skincare

Pixi's skincare range is best known for its iconic exfoliating Glow Tonic, but it has a whole host of skincare products to suit different skin needs too. Some of their latest launches are the Rose Tonic and Rose Cream Cleanser, which are ideal for soothing dry and sensitive skin.

Rose Tonic (£10) is a toner that can be sweeped over the face after cleansing and before moisturising. It helps to tone skin, balance PH, minimise redness and calm the skin while refreshing it. As someone who has very dry skin this works wonders for me as cleansing can really dry my skin out and upset it. It is ideal for anyone with sensitive skin.

Rose Cream Cleanser (£18) as the name suggests is a creamy mud cleanser that is very soft and gentle on the skin. It can be used daily by simply massaging onto skin and rinsing with a face cloth. I use this as part of a double cleanse once I have already removed my makeup. It contains rose, aloe vera, avocado and aloe vera - super smoothing!

Finding Confidence & Positivty

In a world full of social media when it's so easy to compare yourself to others, confidence can be at all-time low. As someone who has been blogging for around 5-6 years now I don't particularly feel like I've "made it" in blogging and when I see other bloggers escalating at such a high level. I often feel lost in the giant world that is the blogosphere.

Having said that, I'd say I'm always a fairly positive person and this in turn helps to keep my confidence and morale up. Body positivty is something that is particularly important to me as I hate nothing more than hearing people put down their bodies and talk about the things they dislike about themselves. While there are plenty of things I would change about my body it is way more important to focus on the things you love.

MakeUp Revolution Haul

MakeUp Revolution Haul

MakeUp Revolution is one of those brands that I seemed to have passed by over the years for no particular reason. I've bought the odd product from there before but more and more I'm seeing exciting new launches and ultra-value high-end dupes blowing up all over my newsfeed, so this Easter weekend when my online browsing was getting a little out of control I decided to splurge on a haul from their site.

I ordered on Saturday 31 March and everything arrived by Thursday 5 March (remembering Monday was the Bank Holiday). I spent £79.07 in total on 12 items. Postage costs £1.95 but is free on orders over £35 if you order direct from MakeUp Revolution's website. You can also order it from Superdrug and delivery is free for Beauty Card Holders. So let's dive in and see what I got.
