Blogmas Day 24: 2017 Essie Advent Calendar Overview

It’s Christmas Eve and time for advent to end. I’ve been sharing the contents of the Essie Advent Calendar over on my Instagram stories every day during advent, but I thought I would do a more detailed review of it here! Obviously, this is no longer in stock, but I picked this up for £40 (RRP £50) in Superdrug, and annoyingly it was on sale for something ridiculous like £5 a couple of days ago! The price point is incredible regardless because, as you’ll see, you receive 7 full-size polishes including one fo the new Gel Couture shades, 13 minis and 4 nail care items. The full-size polishes alone come to a total of £60.89, so you’re definitely getting your monies worth! I’m going to keep this post relatively brief from now on as I have 24 items to get through…

The candles featured in these photos are from the Wilko Candle Advent Calendar which was just £8, and I much preferred it to the Yankee Candle one I had last year – I hope they do one next Christmas too!

Blogmas Day 23: December Mani & Lola subscription box

It’s Christmas Eve Eve! And today I’m sharing Mani & Lola with you, a brand new UK monthly nail subscription box! Unlike Meebox (who I have reviewed many of times (here)!), this box focuses on nail care, including polishes, rather than nail art. So, if you like the idea of surprise nail items turning up every month but don’t care for nail art then this is the box for you! Prices start at £14 (+P&P) for 12 months up front or you can do a monthly rolling subscription for £20 a month (+P&P) meaning you can cancel at any time. I use the latter! This is actually their second month, I sadly missed out on their first (I would love to get my hands on it!), and I am not disappointed by these Holiday Glam goodies! The total RRP of this box is a whopping £65.74! Let’s take a look at the contents…

Blogmas Day 22: December Meebox

The last MeeBox of the year and it’s a good one! The theme this month is Holo Wonderland and I wasn’t disappointed – it even includes an exclusive Prism Polish shade which I’m really excited about! The total RRP comes to £42.50 including postage, so you’re getting a great deal here, as the subscription is £20 a month. You’re getting so much for your money…Read More »

Blogmas Day 21: Sleek Distorted Dreams Highlighter Palette

The only things I owned before now from Sleek were lip products and one eyeshadow palette. I’d seen people talking about the new highlighter palette, Distorted Dreams, and I really wanted to try it out for myself. It has 5 super-light luminescent shades, 3 creams and 2 powders, that would totally work for my pale skin (mostly)! Finding highlighters light enough to actually work as highlighters on me is always a struggle so to a find a palette where 80% of the shades would work for me is a dream! It was worth paying the £10.99 for it! I also think it would work really well on deeper skin tones too though. You can buy this at sleekmakeup.com, Superdrug and BootsRead More »

Blogmas Day 20: Makeup Revolution Chocolate Orange Palette

After picking up the I Heart Makeup Mint Chocolate palette back in November how could I resist getting the newly release Chocolate Orange palette to go with it? After all, they are 2 of my favourite flavours. It is available now for  £8.99 on the TAMbeauty.com, as well as Superdrug, online and in stores! It has 16 shades, with a mix of matte and shimmer eyeshadows, all with a warm feel to them. Read More »
