Hiya Darlins

Getting your nails done or painting your nails yourself is either something you love or loathe, I know some people find the whole nail painting process fun and relaxing, after all you only have to see all the amazing designs on Pinterest or Instagram to spot that it's big business!  As for going to the salon to get your nails done with Gel that's great if you have endless time on your hands and have a salon near enough to make the job easy, most of us however will be guaranteed to have gorgeous looking nails until it's time to go somewhere special then you will always look at your nails and think C##P they need infills. This is where ImPress comes to the rescue.

All Compacts come with tier own little mirror so can be used for quick touch ups during the day, I gave these powders a serious test over a weekend which was scorching and have to say they held up really well considering this is a truly budget brand with prices starting at £3.00 these products perform and in some cases outweigh products 4 times the price, so really good value, not forgetting just how flipping cute they are!

And the icing on the cake is this fabulous Stay With Me!  Matte Fixing Spray 50ml

This handy little spray is the perfect size for your handbag or holiday bag, literally a couple of spritzes holds your makeup firmly in place with a super smooth matte finish, no shine here! No discernable fragrance, it does take a few moments to dry down but once it has there is no stickiness and you are left with a fabulous smooth finish. I find keeping a fan handy solves any waiting drying problems with fixing sprays.

W=Hb² Power Duo Face Serum | la formule secrète


 Secret Formula Power Duo Face Serum W=HB²


W=Hb²  Power Duo Face Serum | la formule secrète
W=Hb²  Power Duo Face Serum | la formule secrète 


Hi Gorgeous.

Introducing W=Hb² (Wellness = Health &  Beauty squared), 
la formule secrète an exclusive, premium beauty brand committed to perfection through the science of wellbeing and inspired by the Yin Yang Chinese philosophy of total balance. Created by Yilin Wang, a leading Bio-Chemist, W=HB² has been researched, developed and produced in one of the leading skincare laboratories in Switzerland using advanced technologies to create a brand that delivers results.


W=Hb²  Power Duo Face Serum | la formule secrète
W=Hb²  Power Duo Face Serum | la formule secrète 

This debut product, Power Duo Serum is a an incredible double pump, two-phase, triple action skincare treatment. Helping to promote balanced skin health, beauty and protection, this two-phase serum breaks new ground by combining a powerful anti-ageing action for skin beauty in phase I with intense brightening and pure anti-pollution actions for skin health in phase II. Containing a cocktail of proven ingredients including unique stem cells, peptides, niacinimide and probiotcs. This multi-tasking serum is said to  combat wrinkles, promote radiance, reduce age spots, protect against pollution and help repair UV induced DNA damage.

I have been using this serum for some time now at first sparingly as it's not a cheap product. In terms of skincare this is high end. Is it worth it? well that's for you to judge, skincare is such a personal thing and I can only go by the results a product gives me in terms of value for money. I have had the pleasure of testing out some incredibly pricey creams and potions which to be honest have not made it to the blog. This however is the exception, my curiosity was peaked as it is is a move away from K beauty and J beauty, and I have always felt that the Chinese have the perfect way of balancing both health, wellbeing and beauty.  I have loved my time with this Serum it gives you the feeling that you are treating your skin not just on a superficial level but deep down to the soul, with the dual phase application you are getting not only beauty but a healthy balance thrown in. The pump applicator in the Yin Yang symbol shape delivers just the perfect amount, phase 1 is a super lightweight gel type formula that absorbs quickly leaving your skin brighter, fully hydrated and ready for phase 2 which is the soothing healing health part of the process. The combination of this cocktail gives the skin a fresh glow which on the surface appears younger due to the super hydration properties, fine lines appear reduced and an overall healthy glow gives the skin a relaxed fresher appearance. Once used continue with your usual skincare routine as you would with any serum.

Don't even ask me why?  but every time I used this product it reminded me of when I was a child with waist length hair, being washed over a sink with a jug! I remember always hating it and yelling for my Mum to stop after the first wash. Her words were always the same; "the first time to be clean the second time to be pretty"  to be fair I didn't want to be pretty I just wanted her to stop!  Even back then health and beauty were going hand in hand.


Made in Switzerland.

Vegan & suitable for all skin types, no perfume or artificial colours.

W=HB² Will be available in Selected High End Retailers. In the meantime it is available direct from whb2.com

Catrice Camouflage High Coverage Concealer UK

Is Catrice The Best Budget Concealer?

Catrice Camouflage High Coverage Concealer UK
Catrice Camouflage High Coverage Concealer 


Hi Loves,

As I have probably mentioned before I am an avid fan of US YouTubers, and with that comes a real frustration whenever I see brands or anything new being raved about the we can't easily get out hands on here in the UK, if you have ever tried buying from the US and having it posted to the UK you will know what a complete pain in the rump it is, and then of course you have the joy of the postman standing on your doorstep demanding way more than the item cost in customs fee's !!  get off with that malarkey it drives me insane. Currently I am blessed in that I can get US products easily from Sephora or Ulta via my grandaughter who flies there on a regular basis, but this has led me to investigate alternative methods of getting these goodies without the flight involved or flipping customs charges.

Going back to the title of this blog post. CATRICE Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer.  I heard about this via YouTube as being the best budget concealer on the market, so good in fact it is said to rival Shape Tape by Tarte, which as everyone knows is THE concealer to have.  Shape Tape concealer is a pain to get hold of in the UK, and NO I don't mean the floods of fake rubbish that Ebay tout, I found it at QVC the first time around, and then direct from the US.  NOW here's the thing!  I love and adore Shape Tape however................at around £6.00 Catrice Concealer is exactly the same, I'm not kidding. I have found no difference between the two other than the price.  This weekend I even risked testing out my theory by going out to dinner with Shape Tape under one eye and Catrice under the other, both bloody brilliant, not a crease, no ruching of foundation  and no mascara transition just fabulous.

Hiya Darlins,

I know there are a tonne of Eyeshadow palettes out there and there is a huge variation in quality and price, but as I have learnt over the years things aren't always what they seem!

When it comes to value for money I don't think you can go far wrong with some little known brands,  don't get me wrong these are not little known as in nobody has heard of them, I mean little known to us in the UK.  BH Cosmetics is one of those, now here's the thing, I won't say I have liked everything I have tried from them, far from it, some don't even reach the blog being powdery, almost un-blendable and with very little pigment. THIS HOWEVER. will literally blow your mind in terms of pigment butter soft smoothness, shimmer, glitter and all round goodness.

I first saw this Palette shown by US Beauty Guru Tati Westbrook, now I know Tati gets excited about a lot of stuff after all she gets PR samples by the truck load, but with this Desert Oasis Palette, seeing was believing so I had to get my grubby lil mitts on it.  OMG it was everything I hoped it would be and more!  the shades are stunning 19 in total including 5 highlighters. The photo's honestly don't do this palette justice.
