Current beauty favourites!

Hi guys!

Tony Moly – Banana hand cream

image

image

I am in love with this gorgeously cute Korean banana hand cream! Smells like those foamy banana sweets I had as a kid and is very moisturing and non sticky! I got this in a recent Korea/UK beauty swap (check out my blog post).
If you’re from the UK they sell these on Amazon ๐Ÿ™‚

EOS lip balm (Strawberry)

image

Another recent beauty swap (check out my UK/USA beauty swap post) where I was lucky enough to get one of these ๐Ÿ˜€ Hard to find (and expensive) in the UK but I love the formula of these…nearly all natural and are cruelty free! Keeps my lips chap free all year long! ๐Ÿ™‚
In the UK they can be bought at Topshop, Selfridge’s and at http://www.cultbeauty.co.uk

Batiste dry shampoo (Cherry)

image

For someone like me who has very thick hair that gets greasy quick this dry shampoo is a life saver! No other dry shampoo works (and smells) as good as Batiste!
They sell these everywhere! ๐Ÿ™‚

Too Faced shadow insurance (eye primer)

image

This is a sample size but boy does this last a long time! If you wear eye shadow especially vibrant colours I really recommend this one by too faced, it really makes your shadows look great and last for ages.
Buy from Debenhams, boots or at http://www.toofaced.com

Liz Earle – brow pencil (dark)

image

My favourite brow pencil is this one by Liz Earle…makes my brows look great and is full of lovely ingredients like avocado oil…love!
ยฃ11 from http://www.lizearle.com

Beauty blender

image

My sister got me this from home bargains for about a ยฃ1!….this works amazingly at blending in foundation and concealer… Such a bargain considering most beauty blenders I’ve seen are between ยฃ10-15! ๐Ÿ™‚

Clarins ‘blue’ perfume

image

My mum loves this perfume and Ive always loved how it smelt on her so she gave me a bottle that had about a quater left (she had another full bottle ready).
I really love the smell of this, really clean & fresh smelling not at all sweet or fruity (isn’t it always hard to describe perfume?) It’s the type of scent that suits anyone and is even quite unisex in my opinion ๐Ÿ™‚
Can be bought at Debenhams and Boots for ยฃ32 (100ml).

Thanks for reading guys!

UK/Korean Blog beauty swap! (Thanks AJ!)

Hi Dolls!

Yesterday I received my second ‘beauty swap’ package (check out my other post for my haul from the USA) from fellow beauty blogger ( https://cuteprettybeauty.wordpress.com/ ) the lovely AJ (check out her blog she often reviews really cool & interesting beauty items!) who sent me a whole bunch of gorgeous cute Korean beauty products (and candy!) :-)…
I admit I was not expecting such an Amazing box crammed full of these amazing things (I was nearly hyperventilating! Haha) as I’ve always had a fascination with anything beauty from places like Korea & Japan…..these things just aren’t sold in the west :-/

I didn’t really have a preference about what I wanted AJ to get me infact neither did AJ so we got each other a random mix ๐Ÿ˜€
I had seen on her blog she often talked about ‘Etude house’ and ‘Tonymoly’ and I noticed quite alot are from either of those places ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks again AJ!!!  (My sister Louise says ‘Thankyou!’ Aswell) ๐Ÿ™‚

The packaging! Gorgeous! The banana hand cream smells like those candy bananas I had as a kid! I don’t want to open any of it, just look at it! ๐Ÿ˜€
