Charlotte Tilbury wish list

It's pay day soon (woo!) and that means my bank will look a little healthier, until I start shopping!

I'm desperate to add some Charlotte Tilbury products to my make up collection as I don't own anything yet. My Charlotte Tilbury shopping list is growing by the minute and although I know I won't be able to afford it all on pay day, I definitely think I'll be purchasing something.

So, I've decided to share my wish list with you so you can help me out with what I should buy on pay day!

Love, Honour and Be True lipstick review: Kiss the Bride

Love, Honour and Be True wedding lipstick | Kiss the Bride

Just before I got married, my wonderful cousin sent me a pretty little lipstick to wear on my wedding day. The lipstick was by Love, Honour & Be True, a cosmetics company based in the UK, set up by two sisters, Helen and Kitty, after Kitty's wedding.

They have a range of five wedding lipsticks designed to suit all skin tones and looks while also remaining classic to create timeless wedding looks and none of the ingredients are tested on animals. (Hooray!)

The five shades are aptly named  along the wedding theme; Love Story, Blushing Bride, I Do, Just Married and the shade I have is Kiss The Bride.

Shrinking Violet Body Wrap Kit: First Impressions*

Shrinking Violet Body Wrap Kit | Home Edition

Body wraps have been around for a while, offering a "quick fix" to losing inches on problem areas, making you skinnier in seconds. I've never been a true believer in them. They may shave the inches temporarily, but, in my opinion, the only real way to effectively lose weight permanently is maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and regular exercise.

But, my theories were tested when Shrinking Violet sent me their home edition body wrap kit to review.

The kit contains an oil to apply to 'problem areas', a measuring cup, tape measure, a sheet to record your measurements and the extremely trendy shrinky suit.

Ten under £10: Mascara

I don't know about you, but I wear mascara everyday. It gets at least one application in the morning, will definitely get topped up if I go out again after work and I'll even sometimes reapply during the day.

All this lash love means I go through mascara so quickly, so I don't like to splash out too much on my day to day product if I'm going to be restocking so quickly, but I also don't want to be buying something cheap that doesn't do the job.

So, I regularly am on the lookout for a cheap mascara that work wonders, and I've picked 10 of my favourites, and guess what?! They all cost less than £10!

Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Luminizer Gel review

Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Luminizer

We all know contouring has been a hugely popular trend for a while now, but recently, we've seen celebrities, beauty bloggers and pretty much everyone else embracing 'strobing'. If you haven't heard of it before, strobing is essentially contouring, but with a bigger focus on highlighting.

It's actually pretty tricky to master, but I think the key is getting a good highlighter and that's where this little beauty comes into play.

The Jelly Pong Pong Gel Luminizer is a lightweight and oil free highlighter in a gel form. It's packed with teeny tiny pearlescent pigments for that highlighted effect and  orange blossom extract.

Boohoo Autumn Collection Wishlist

Boohoo Autumn Collection wish list

I love Autumn and not just for the crunchy golden leaves and pumpkin spiced latte's. I love Autumn because the capes, chunky knits and all sorts of other gorgeous clothes come back into play and our favourite stores release their Autumn collections!

I've been trawling through most of them in a bid to update my Autumn wardrobe and in the meantime I thought I'd write you some wishlists; starting with Boohoo! Let's take a look at my favourite pieces from the new Boohoo Autumn collection:

August Empties

August empties | Best beauty products

Phew! August was a busy month for me, look how many products I used up! Since I finished a lot of my favourite products, and because I haven't done one for a while, I thought it was about time I did an empties post for you!

Because there are 9 products in this empties post, it's a bit of a long one, but hopefully you'll stick with me and you might find something you'd like to try!

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate & Midnight Recovery Concentrate Review

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate & Midnight Recovery Concentrate

I was super lucky enough to receive some gorgeous treats from Kiehl's as a Klout Perk recently and I was so excited to try them out. Wrapped up in a cute little gift box were two beautiful little products; Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate & Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate!

So, what better to do than share them both with you in a dual product review?!

Balance Me Congested Skin Serum Review

Balance Me Congested Skin Serum

We all know the feeling, you know the one, where you can feel something brewing up just underneath the skin and before you know it you've got a great big spot. Sigh. There are so many products promising to target spots straight away and make them disappear before they arrive. The truth is; I've never found one that really does what it promises. The Balance Me Congested Skin Serum is another one of those products aimed at targeting spots directly and when first read the packaging on my little sample, I'll admit that I rolled my eyes.

But, I decided to give it a go anyway, considering I'd never tried any of the Balance Me range before but I've heard some wonderful things. The  say that they use high tech natural ingredients and technologies and that intrigues me!
