Grays FAUX MINK LASHES

“If you love extra volume and fluffiness, then these are the lashes for you. The Grays Brat Faux Mink Lashes are super soft and are also cruelty free as they are made from a faux mink material. Having a smaller eye shape, I was hesitant to get this style, but they fit easily and applied instantly. They are super curly and give off a fresh set of eyelashes look but for a quarter of the price. I would recommend getting these in your basket for all those upcoming Christmas parties!”

Lethal Cosmetics MAGNETIC PRESSED POWDER PALETTE

“This is such a stunning palette from the Lethal Cosmetics Magnetic Pressed Powder Palette range – definitely about to become one of my going-out faves! I was very impressed by the pigmentation on each shadow – especially the duochromes – and love how you can totally tone them down and control the colour intensity by building and blending. Very little fall-out of the shadows too when blending as the formula is so creamy! Absolutely love the design of the palette itself as well and think it’s super cool how you can pop out the shadows and refill with your own selection! There’s such a great range of mattes and shimmers and I can’t wait to play around and create some more fun looks!”

Slip PURE SILK SKINNY SCRUNCHIES

“I’ve been a big fan of a satin/faux silk scrunchie for a few years now, however I have to admit I’ve never took the plunge to get a real Silk one – until now! I’m a big fan of a high ponytail, however I’ve noticed my hair thinning slightly around the front from years of high pony’s and terrible bobbles! Since treating myself to my Slip Pure Silk Skinny Scrunchies my hair is less frizzy after having it in a pony, it knots significantly less and my ends aren’t snapping half as much as they used to! I was concerned that due to the restrictive silk material it wouldn’t stretch around my thick hair but it actually ties around my hair four times (thick hair girls know this is unheard of). To summarise I’ll never look back, silk scrunchies have my heart!”

The Beauty Crop OUI CHERIE SETTING MIST

“After seeing the Oui Cherie Setting Mist all over TikTok I couldn’t wait to try it out… and I definitely wasn’t disappointed! It leaves my skin looking fresh and glowy and the cherry scent reminds me of my fave childhood sweets. The Beauty Crop is a must-have in brand in your makeup bag.”

Scarlett, Social & Community Executive

Urban Decay STAY NAKED CONCEALER

“Urban Decay has been a solid in my makeup routine for years, their setting spray has seen me through it all. So I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to try this concealer! I’m an oily girl with large pores, so struggle to get that blurred, smooth under eye look, but with this product I’ve noticed such a difference in person and on pictures too! It’s super versatile and perfect for an eye base as well. I would recommend this concealer to ANYONE! It has such a lush shade range to so you’re guarenteed to find your perfect match. Also, a big shout out to the Urban Decay Moondust Space Cowboy shadow and the All Nighter Setting Spray which have become my power trio of products.”

COSRX Full Fit Honey Sugar Lip Scrub

“This has been perfect with the weather getting colder. My lips get very dry in winter and it’s hard to keep them smooth and plump. I’ve been using this scrub in my night-time skincare routine and also in the morning before I do my makeup so my lips are smooth. Some lip scrubs can be really harsh and have a lot of fragrance but this one leaves your lips feeling moisturised, exfoliated and feels like a lip treatment!”

Hannah, Influencer and PR Assistant

Olaplex No.4P Shampoo

“If you’re like me and you love your hair to look bright and fresh all year round, you probably feel the sting on your bank balance. I’m always at the hairdressers, desperately trying to rid my hair of any brassy tones. I tried Olaplex No.4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo to keep that ashy look without breaking the bank and it’s a miracle worker. After months away from the chair, just one wash using No.4 has my hair feeling cooled and salon-fresh.”

Amy, Private Label Campaign Manager

Floral Street X VAN GOGH SUNFLOWER POP EAU DE PARFUM

“The Floral Street X Van Gogh Museum Sunflower Pop Eau De Parfum is one of the most refreshing, yet universal fragrances I’ve ever used! The initial strong citrus scent fades into the bergamot scent over the day transitioning the smell slightly, making it the best day to night fragrance. It lasts too, only a few spritzes and I’m literally sorted for the day, so I’ll definitely be looking to invest in the larger bottle size soon.”

Catherine, Content Assistant

By BEAUTY BAY NUDE LIP GLOSS QUAD

“I love a nude lip and recently I’ve been adding lip gloss to my makeup routine. I’ve been looking for the perfect nude gloss and a lot of the time they are too dark for my lips. When I saw the By Beauty nude lip gloss quad I had to give it a go and I love it! I’ve used the shades slippers all over my lips and then ballet in the centre and I love the look and colour of them both! They are also really long lasting and feel lovely to wear. I’ll definitely be buying more!”

Charlotte, Search & Shopping Marketing Executive

SKINCARE BY BEAUTY BAY X FOREO HYDRATING BUNDLE

“The By BEAUTY BAY X Foreo Hydrating Bundle was the step in my skincare routine I didn’t know I needed. After having tried some of the By BEAUTY BAY skincare products before, I knew I wasn’t going to be disappointed. Once my makeup was removed using the cleansing balm, the Foreo LUNA Play 2 worked wonders removing the last of my makeup and leaving my skin silky smooth! Following up with the rich moisturiser, skin hit serum and overnight moisture balm, it was a match made in heaven. This is now a daily step in my skincare routine and i’m OBSESSED!”

Hannah, CRM Executive

e.l.f. Cosmetics pure skin cleanser

“When I’m breaking out or my skin has reacted to a new product, I like to strip things right back to just a really basic cleanser, moisturiser, and SPF. The last time this happened I reached for e.l.f.’s Pure Skin Cleanser, since it’s part of a range formulated specifically with sensitive skin in mind. I’ve been using it ever since (and despite the fact that my skin is back to normal) – yes, really, it’s that good. It contains ingredients like oat milk, niacinamide, and ceramides which help to moisturise skin and support the skin barrier. The milky gel texture is soothing and gentle, so doesn’t irritate skin even when it’s feeling super sensitive. What’s more, it’s still an effective cleanser, removing makeup and leaving my skin feeling clean and comfortable.”

Grace, Content Marketing Manager

Ultra Violette QUEEN SCREEN SPF50 LUMINISING SERUM SKINSCREEN

“As we all know, SPF is not just for summer, and in Winter it’s still important to be including it in your skincare routine. If you’re in the market for a new SPF then I cannot recommend the Ultra Violette Queen Screen SPF50 Luminising Serum Skinscreen enough! It’s super glowy, applies on the skin so smoothly and doesn’t leave it looking greasy or with a white cast. It’s also the perfect base for makeup and doesn’t flake or pile when I apply products on top. This is my second bottle and will definitely not be my last!”

Ashleigh, Content Executive
