A Holiday In a Bottle | Tom Ford Private Blend Fragrances

Perfumes are not something I usually write about on my blog because I find it very hard to describe fragrances, but I have recently got my hands on one of Tom Ford’s exclusive fragrances and I had to tell you about it because honestly I have never experienced anything like it before.

I think the first time I smelt one of Tom Ford’s fragrances was once browsing around Heathrow for a present for my husband. The sales assistant mentioned that their Private Blend fragrances were all unisex, which I must say definitely sounded like a bonus because it meant we could both use it, and given I don’t usually like very girly floral or overly sweet scents I thought this sounded like a fragrance right up my street, and boy was I right!

5 Minute Makeup Challenge

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know I am definitely not one to get ready in a rush. Anyone who knows me will probably tell you that my biggest flaw, is that it takes me over an hour and half to get out of the door on a daily basis so I thought it would be super fun to film this video and take on the 5 minute makeup challenge!

A  lot friends and viewers had been requesting me to do a video showing a quick and easy routine that they could use on daily basis, and whilst i am not sure I would walk out of the ouse like this, it definitely doesn’t get quicker than 5 minutes so I hope you enjoy the video!

APRIL Favourites and Unfavorites

I am back with a monthly favourites and in this one, to add into the mix also has a couple of disappointing products in there. With Spring on our doorsteps a lot of brands have been launching their new collections and I was very excited to try out a few of them, especially when it came to lip products, however after trying a few of these at the counters themselves I was quite disappointed to find they really weren’t anything like I was expecting them to be. So I thought I would share my thoughts with you, just so you can avoid spending money on things you might not end up using. I feel this can especially be the case when you are shopping online, as swatches on screen can be quite deceiving and you can’t really tell what a texture will be like without trying a product on.

Other than that I am sharing with you my usual beauty, skin care and fashion favourites for the month of April so I hope you enjoy this video, and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my channel.

Best & Worst Of Charlotte Tilbury | Brand Review

Charlotte Tilbury has to be my all time favourite makeup brand and if you have been following this blog for a while this will not come as a surprise. I think I don’t have a single tutorial where I haven’t used at least one of her products. In this video I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the brand, and show you some of my favourite products and also tell you about some which I haven’t really grown to love.

This is one of the rare brands where I love pretty much every single product and while my absolutely standout product has to be her eyeshadow palettes, I think there a lot of great products in this brand and I think that it really shows that a very talented and experienced makeup artist is behind it.

I hope you enjoy this video and if you please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.

Today I have for you a TAG video. I don’t usually do many of these because sometimes I find them quite repetitive, but I saw this one on Fleur de Force’s channel and I loved it.  I think its a great video to find out about products that have been hyped in Youtube but that were actually worth the hype. I am going through all the beauty and skincare products that I have purchased over the last few years which were recommended by fellow Youtubers, and most of them have worked wonders so I hope you enjoy this video and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.

However, despite finding new loves I have also re-discovered old favourites which I had sort of forgotten about.

Armani Prima Glow On Balm – The Ultimate Moisturiser

Moisturiser is probably not the most exciting product when it comes to beauty, and I have to admit that for the longest time I was not very excited by skincare in general. Finding the best mascara, foundation or lipstick was always on my radar, as it was something visible, and why not say it a lot more ‘pretty’ to buy. Makeup usually has beautiful colours to choose from and sophisticated packaging. However, as I get older I have realised that no matter how good your makeup is nothing sits well if you don’t take good care of the canvas underneath, so focusing on skincare and getting products that work well with my skin no matter how flashy or not their packaging is, has become top of my priority list when it comes to purchasing beauty products.

If you have been watching my tutorials for a while, you will probably know that I have been using the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream for quite a while, and I honestly still think its an amazing moisturiser, specially if you are going to wear in under makeup. However, I recently ran out of my ginormous tub (it is definitely worth the money , mine lasted for over a year) and I was not giving a second thought to repurchasing, but around that time I started hearing lots of great things about Armani’s new Prima Range, specifically their Glow-On Moisturising Balm. I had never actually tried Armani skincare, and till date I had never been too fond of skincare ranges of brands which don’t focus on beauty, i.e. brands who also do clothing, accessories, etc… and the only thing I had actually tried by Armani, was their Luminous Silk Foundation, which actually featured in my recent Disappointing Beauty Products video, so as you may guess it didn’t make the cut.  However, I heard so many people say that this product was a great base for makeup and it was sort of an improved version of the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, that I decided to give it a go.

Disappointing Beauty Products

So I hope you find this video useful and if you have any products which you have found disappointing then please do share below!
