Marc Jacobs x John Lewis Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara


The Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara as described on the packaging, it truly does make your lashes dark with a lush velvet finish. This mascara is extremely black and glides onto your lashes, separating them slightly but without the clogged up look. 

This mascara definitely isn't subtle, so if you like the look of a more dramatic eye, this is definitely for you. For the more natural make up wearers, I think this mascara is too heavy on the eye.

I absolutely adore the wand, it is perfectly crafted to get onto every lash. A major plus for me is that it doesn't smudge at all and isn't too wet when applied. So you don't have to worry about ruining make up already applied. It lasts all day and doesn't drop down your face at all, this is something that I have found with most mascaras on my lashes. 

The formula is definitely more for volume than length. For £18 being a Marc Jacobs product I don't think that you can go wrong! I will definitely be re-purchasing.

My Top Foundations For Full Coverage

I have always found myself so fussy over foundation. Hunting for the perfect foundation is so difficult as it's something that you want to look perfect on the skin, so getting it right is sometimes a chore. I personally like to have a full coverage base, so here I have 5 foundations that I think fit that perfect full coverage, everyday look. 

This has to be one of my all time favourite drugstore foundations. At under £10 you can't go wrong. L'Oreal have this foundation in 23 matchable shades. I find this foundation easiest to put on with a beauty blender it leaves a gorgeous semi-matte finish to the skin and has such a lightweight formula you don't feel like you have any make up on your face. This foundation stays on my face perfectly all day without having to really touch up. 

This foundation is one of my favourite more towards the higher end foundation products. This foundation is oil-free and very hydrating. I feel like when this foundation is put on this skin it is like you're airbrushing your face and blurring out any lines. This defiantly does last up to 15 hours on the skin looking flawless. It has a medium to full coverage which is build able and it's lightweight and comfortable on the skin. I feel like this foundation is ideal for all skin types. 

When L'oreal bought out this foundation I was so excited to see how it would be on the skin. I honestly love this product, it's super full coverage and so easy to blend out without being drying. Yes, this foundation does cover tattoos which is incredible and the foundation doesn't transfer, let alone budge throughout the day. I love combining this with the L'oreal True Match foundation to create my perfect base. This foundation has a limited colour range but they have covered most shades. This is definitely a must have in your foundation collection. 

I have only recently been introduced to this foundation and from the first application I fell in love with it. This foundation was perfect on the skin giving you super full matte coverage but very lightweight with hi-pigment. It made my skin look and feel beautiful, like I wasn't wearing any make-up. This foundation also looks flawless on camera, with or without flash. This is my new everyday favourite and at such a good price it's definitely on level with the higher end foundations.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup - £29.25 (on offer) RRP: £32.50

Double wear will always be my favourite high end foundation. Everything from the formal to the finish, the colour range, is perfect. This foundation you don't have to worry about once you've put it on first thing in the morning, it'll stay perfect all day whatever you are doing. It has a natural, skin like finish but very full coverage. This foundation also looks good on camera, pretty much like you just have flawless skin.  What I do love about this foundation is that it is the colour that you want, it doesn't oxidise or change throughout the day. This will always be my all time favourite foundation. 

I'm sure there are loads of foundation out there that are really good, this is just a little taster of what I like! 

How To Keep Your Skin Plump and Firm | Nip + Fab


The Nip + Fab range is without a doubt the best drugstore, affordable brand that I have tried. They never fail to impress me with every single product they produce. My favourite so far from the range has to be the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Range. This brings me nicely onto these two products my skin has been loving me for recently.


If you want your body to feel hydrated and firm this is definitely the product you need to add to your everyday skincare routine. This product works to improve the appearance of your body contours for a firmer, slimmer appearance. This product is advertised to use ideally post-workout or after a hot shower to sink into your skin for fast acting results. This product contains unislim which helps contour and sculpt the body, cocoa butter which softens and smooths the skin and caffeine extract which helps to improve the texture and tone of your skin. 


This product I truly fell in love with from the first time I used it. This product is a super rich moisturising body cream accompanied with bee venom. I massage this into my whole body morning and evening and it visibly makes my skim more plum and firm. The bee venom is a special ingredient  in this shuffle as it fills and smooths fine lines for youthful looking skin and also contains propolis extract fighting against bacteria and viruses against the skin, promoting a good healing ability for the skin. This gorgeous smelling soufflĂ© also contains beeswax, shea butter and honey to help keep the skin nourished and soft throughout the day. This is definitely my favourite product at only £5 at the minute definitely a bargain.

A few months from being away from my blog to gain my motivation back for it has done me some good. I am so happy that I feel confident enough to produce content again after feeling like my blog wasn't good enough and the content I was producing wasn't up to the standards I wanted it to be. After reflecting on this I have had some time to gather my thoughts and get my passion for beauty and this blog back in its place.

I am happy to have the opportunity to get to partnership with Dower & Hall, to have a quick peek at some of the luxurious, precious pieces they have available for you to indulge on.
