Arbonne award winning mascara review

Hello beautiful people. Today I am reviewing a mascara that I was kindly sent to review. The very beautiful Emma Bundy contacted me via Facebook and had read my blog. She asked if I would review a couple of items and I excitedly accepted. Emma is a rep for Arbonne, a make up company who pride themselves on using the best and most natural ingredients in their make up. A little more about Emma and the company later but right now let’s get down to their products.

The Items I was sent were a hand cream, a primer and an award winning mascara.

I have tried all three items but have decided to give my finding in three Separate blog posts.

I love mascara and it’s the one item of make up I wear even on a no make up day. If my eyebrows and lashes are sorted then I am confident to go about my day proudly.

The mascara’s wand has comb like teeth which ensures that every last little lash has been grabbed and covered in the thick, rich black formula.

I totally see why this mascara has won an award. My lashes were instantly longer. And with a little rub of the wand on the ends of my lashes they were made much longer that even my partner (who didn’t notice when I died my hair from blonde to pink) noticed my eyelashes. Here is a pic of my lashes after I had applied the “it’s a long story” Arbonne mascara.

I am going to do a full blog post on this company, about its products and of course blog posts on all of the other products I received.

Complete Beauty Essential

Hey there girls and guys. I hope that we are all good on this very windy morning.

Today I have brought to you a new kind of post, I have put together all you will need to give yourself a beautiful natural everyday look.  I have completely scoured the web,put forward  my favourite products, and products that I know through experience work.  There are a couple of little bargains amongst this little lot and that may be something else you notice……..That there are not thousands of products.  No you do not need loads of different products in order to achieve a fresh glowing complexion.  Also for an everyday make up look I leave out the eyes completely.  On my usual days I am doing housework, walking the dog, getting the kids ready for school, dropping off and picking them up from school and I sometimes think that turning up to the school gates with my best winged eyeliner look can sometimes be a bit much even though it looks cool as hell. One rule I like to use when putting on my minimal fresh faced look is to either do my eyes or my lips, and for me I will always opt for the lips, there are just to many beautiful matte lipsticks out there to just leave them out of my make up routine, I just can’t do it.  You may be different and opt for the eyes but just remember if you do go for the eyes instead of the lips that less is more……No spider lashes please.

Quick Tip…..

If you want your lashes to be darker than they are but with very little effort then there is a brand new product on the market that I personally can’t wait to get my hands on, I have blonde hair so I therefor have blonde eyelashes, although they are long lashes and I am always being asked if I am wearing fake lashes, unless I have a lot of mascara on (which for me having to get ready in the morning with, two young kids takes up to much time due to the amount I actually have to apply, and with it, it brings a whole other range of things that takes up to much time, such as making sure my lashes do not look like spider legs, making sure they are not all stuck together, and making sure that I am not suffering from wonky eyes which if you didn’t already know is caused by having slightly more mascara on one eye than the other. Hense why I opt for the quick lip) you basically cannot see them, yes they are totally invisible. Anyway, if you are like me then you have to try out the new Volume Colourist Mascara By Rimmel which tints lashes over time, you do not have to apply a lather to your lashes to achieve the desired tinting effect. This is a new must have for every single lady or ladyette I know get yours here Volume Colourist Mascara Only £4.99 From Ebay,–>



Birchbox amazing under £20 Deals

Good morning everyone.  I have had an obsession with subscription boxes at the moment, not only are they great value for money but it is an amazing opportunity to try products that you wouldn’t normally buy, it is also a great way to try out products that you maybe have had your eye on for a while.

I have recently bought the following subscription boxes

  • Look Fantastic – summer edition
  • Look Fantastic – Best Of British Edition
  • Glossybox – August box with bonus box ( Still Awaiting Delivery Due To It Being Sent to My Old Address)
  • Flamingo Candle – Melt Crowd Box (still awaiting delivery)

So far I have been impressed by the look fantastic boxes so I am excited for the delivery of the others. I have also been having a look at any other subscription boxes I can try out and the one that keeps popping up when I type subscription boxes in to a google search engine that I haven’t tried yet is Birchbox so I decided to go on to their website to have a look and this is what I found.


A bit about Birchbox – Is it different from other beauty boxes? YES

Birchbox differ slighty to other beauty boxes as the boxes are customised for the customer by the customer, you fill in what they call a beauty profile and based upon what you input in to the beauty profile that determine what you receive in your monthly beauty box.  So unlike other subscription beauty boxes where everyone receives the same items in their box, in this box you will have items that are for your skin type, hair type, and make up preference.  Everything is tailored to you. If you like the sound of this box click the link to be taken to their site, create your beauty profile and start enjoying your box. <a href=”http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=Jij/MSaml1c&offerid=304469.218&subid=0&type=4″><IMG border=”0″ alt=”BIRCHBOX UK” src=”http://ad.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/show?id=Jij/MSaml1c&bids=304469.218&subid=0&type=4&gridnum=13″&gt;

Whats New This Month?

This month at Birchbox you are receiving a free Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner, this is reported to be loved by our U.S friends.  You can get this freebie in two colours, coco brown or a sultry purple.  Also this month instead of your five beauty products coming to you in the trademark box, you will receive it in an exclusive neon beauty bag that is available in four colours.

Deals And Offers

Once you have had your birchbox delivered and you have had a chance to try out some of the products inside you can go to the birchbox shop where you can purchase full-sized products.  They have amazing deals within the shop such as:

  • Under £20 Section – Which consists of brands such as Benefit and up and coming brands as well.
  • Value Kits Section – There some lovely gift sets available and there is quite a variety of them that you can bag for under £20.  Although there are some much pricier gift sets they are still great value for money, they have everything from sets for him, sets for the nail fanatic, beautiful gift sets for those of us that like everything to smell like you can consume it (even if you can’t), and sets to make you feel like a goddess with their skin softening products.
  • 75% Off Summer Sale – This sale is amazing, there 16 pages of discounted products for you to choose from, and of course you do not have to limit yourself to just selecting products that you tried within your beauty box, because some of these products are so inexpensive you can afford to buy a full-sized version for a fraction of the price.  Here are some of the best discounted items I have found within this sale.

The Best Items Within The 75% Sale List:

I can go on and on with this list as there loads of amazing deals. All those deals and you are also getting free shipping on orders worth £35 upwards.  Go on grab yourself a haul now while this sale lasts.

Have I added this beauty box to my list of subscription boxes?? YES

I have just gone and ordered myself one of these boxes, although this month they are not boxes, it is this month that you’re getting the exclusive neon bag worth £8!!

So maybe once all of my beauty boxes have arrived I can give you all the low down on the best value for money, the best brands, etc.

I have also found an obsession with candle subscription boxes which work exactly the same as beauty boxes but with candles ( as if I had to point that out) But that’s for another post.

Keep up to date and up to my subscribe page to subscribe to my newsletter to be kept up to date on beauty boxes, deals, voucher codes and more,


Much love xx



Have you heard of TAMBEAUTY.COM – make up revolution and I heart make ups created a master piece!!!!!!

unnamed makeup-rev

So, what is this masterpiece then??

Today I received an E – Mail which had some amazing news in it. It was from a site called TAMBEAUTY.COM

So who are TAMBEAUTY.COM??

TAMBEAUTY.COM is a brand new website. make up revolution and I heart make up have teamed up and created a brand new site that stocks these following brands:

  • Make up Revolution
  • I heart Make Up
  • Freedom
  • Faceb4
  • Colourless Hair Colour Remover
  • DGJ Organics
  • Kate Price
  • Frizz Free


So what make s it so awesome??

Well where do I start!! The offers that they have available are awesome. They are extremely affordable. For example right now you can get the Make up Revolution Colour Blocks Propaganda which consists of a lipstick, a lip gloss and a nail polish all in bright red for only £2.00, I know that is an amazing deal. You can buy hair care products, cosmetics, Brushes and Tools, Skincare this really is a great little website that they have created, and it still has their trademark affordability factor.


I had another little look around the special offers they had available and this is what I found:
Free delivery on orders over £30
50%, 30% off
An overall wide selection of discounted products.

The Hair Care Range
One of the most popular hair care products that this lovely website stocks is the Colourless range. If it had not been for this product I know of a few ladies who would have had a full blown breakdown. This great product removes semi – permanent as well as permanent hair dye, on the box its sub heading is” just wash your colour away” and that’s exactly what happens, this is an absolute hero when you have had a DIY Hair disaster. You can get this for only £6.66 RRP £9.99.
We also have the ColourOn Range which are a range of toners, you can chose from a few different colours that will give you that very on trend pastel effect. You can pick this up on their site for £4.66 RRP £6.99.
And then we have the DGJ Organics range and live love range of shampoos and conditioners that range from £4.99 – £6.99.

The Brushes
I love, love,love a brush, I used to use my fingers and thought that brushes were just silly, and wondered what the big deal was with every ones obsession. Well I got a pack of 10 cheap brushes from ebay and that was me hooked. There are brushes for everyone and the I heart make up brush sets are my favorite, they are adorable they come in three different colours and with the cutest names, my personal favorite is the Unicorns Unite, you get three brushes in the set, a powder brush with two smaller brushes that could be used for eye shadow or highlighter. There are a variety of more expensive brushes, that look beautiful. The most expensive of the brushes is the Make Up Revolution Ultra Metals set which consists of five good brushes that are all shaped for the perfect application and contouring. These will set you back £34.95.


The Rest and Overall Thoughts
They also have a small range of face wash, and moisturizers, along with hand wash and hand creams that range from £4.00 to £14.99. They really do have something for everyone. With their products having such an amazing affordability factor you can easily pick yourself up a whole skin care regime for half the price of some high street retailers. As well as these ranges you can obviously get your hands on the very on trend eyeshadow palettes that Make Up Revolution are famous for, you can pick up the Fortune Favours The Brave palette which consists of 30 beautiful colours for only £9.99. There are even cheaper high volume palettes available such as the Make Up Revolution Iconic 3 palette for only £4.00, this is the cheapest palette available on the site and consists of twelve again very beautiful colours.

Eye shadow palettes are not all that you will find in their make up category you can find anything and everything you can think of that is on trend and on pint as the moment. That is in my opinion why this website is going to do so well, even though the cosmetics and hair/face care ranges are all very affordable they are still very on trend, all of the colours in their palettes are carefully selected. They do skimp on the quality which is unusual, as most of the time when I purchase a mega cheap product I find that it is either outdated or the quality is poor, with this website, that is most definitely not the case.

They have the most on trend lipsticks ranging from the ever growing in popularity matte lipsticks to lip gloss. You can even pick up a whole collection, five lipsticks for a fiver!!

There are also primers, brighteners, highlighters and setting sprays to chose from, and at the moment you are getting your items delivered directly to your door free of charge on any orders over £30, and these prices you can get yourself an amazing little haul for that price.
