Illamasqua Precision Ink Liner


Illamasqua Precision Ink Eye-liner in Abyss

It's no secret at all that I'm a massive Illamasqua fan, and quite frequently rave about their products (you can read my brand review here). So when I received their liquid liner in a beauty box (!!!) I was extremely excited, and I had every right to be. This may be one of the blackest eyeliner formulas I have tried yet, and the nib is so super fine that it makes it a absolute dream to apply.
If you're on the hunt for a liquid eyeliner definitly check this one out.

 Clarins Pure and Radiant Mask with pink clay

Clarins Pure and Radiant Mask with pink clay

I do love a good face mask, I immediately feel more pampered the moment I have slathered one on. I usually go cheap with my face masks,but when I'm having a 'ultimate' pamper night (think wine, expensive bubble bath etc) I do love to treat myself to a more pricey one. Being a Clarins skincare girl I popped along to my local counter and was recommended this radiant clay mask. This smells so nice and leaves my skin feeling really fresh and glowy.
Even though I have slightly sensitive and dry skin this doesn't upset it at all.

 Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer


Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer

If you have read my last post you would know how much of a disaster my hair is. But since using my Lush Hair extensions I'm trying to treat my hair better. For years I have used Philip Kingsley's Elasticizer on and off. It seems to be one of the very few products that truly makes a difference to my hair.
I have a full review of it here, but if you have dry, sensitive or damaged hair I really can't recommend this enough.

Neom Perfect Night's Sleep Bath and Shower Oil

Neom Perfect Night's Sleep Bath and Shower Oil

Sleep in a bottle this is. I'm hugely affected by smells, I think a lot of people are, I also dont doubt a lot are also not. But for me, when I smell this I'm instantly relaxed and calmed. This has such a beautiful but subtle scent of Lavender (and I am not a huge fan of lavender at all) and I use just a drop of it in my bathtub when I'm feeling particularly anxious and know I'm heading for a crappy night's sleep.


Marian Keyes The Brightest Star in the Sky

Marian Keyes The Brightest Star in the Sky

How I adore Marian. I read my first Mrs Keyes book years and years ago (Angels it was called) and I have read everything of hers ever since. For me she is the true Queen of Fiction. I have read this book before, but after it caught my eye on my bookshelf recently I just couldn't resist falling straight back into the life of the characters of this wonderful novel.
I dont want to spoil any moment of this book for you, but the supernatural force that narrates this book gives me goosebumps!


That's all for this month, if you have any recommendations for me then please pop me a comment below.

  8. Still can't get over the fact you got the full sized ink from a beauty box! Illamasqua never fail to disappoint when it comes to their products, I've been fiercely loyal to their gel liner.

    Can testify to Elastizer! The extreme version is dope AF too!
