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.

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.

I am back with a monthly favourites and believe it or not its actually one for February! I know it is coming a little bit late but I have included a little bit of stuff I have been using in March to compensate! I feel like I have made a lot of new discoveries in the last few months specially when it comes to skincare, some being new launches and other products I had simply not heard of before. However, despite finding new loves I have also re-discovered old favourites which I had sort of forgotten about.
If you want to find out what I have been loving then definitely watch the video, there is a lot of makeup and skincare in this one so if you are a beauty junkie like me I think you will enjoy it!

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.

As you may already know I am a bit of a skincare junkie and one of my main concerns when it comes to my face is the fact that it is quite puffy and bottom heavy, and I think I may just have found the answer to all my prayers. I have been considering fillers to redefine my facial contours for quite some time but when I heard about this product, I said to myself ‘I have to try this!’and now I am actually reconsidering whether fillers are actually even necessary!
In this video I am reviewing and trying on camera Clarins’ Shaping Facial Lift V-Facial Intensive Wrap Mask, which claims not only to smooth and decongest skin but also to reduce puffiness, help tense the skin and define facial contours.
Clarins is a brand which I have grown to love in the last few years. I had never really noticed them much before but once I tried their blue orchid face treatment oil, I was floored. This is honestly one of the best skincare products I have tried in a very long time. So when I heard of this mask which actually is part of a full range, which is meant to define facial contours and reduce puffiness I was beyond excited. But if you want to find out how I got on with this product then check out the video below and if you enjoy it please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.

I love sharing with you the products I am loving every month, but today I thought I would give a brief mention to those which have disappointed me over the years. Be it because they really didn’t work on my skin, or hair, because they broke me out or simply because I think they weren’t worth the splurge, today I am telling you about those products that I have not really wowed me. So I hope you find this video useful and if you have any products which you have found disappointing then please do share below!

I am back with a monthly favourites and it is quite a short one, I feel like January has just whizzed by and I hardly had a chance to try out new things, but but although I didn’t have lots of stuff to share I thought I would show you what I have been loving throughout this month. Theres a little bit of skincare, haircare and of course makeup!
However, I have recently been trying lots of new things so I think February favourites is going to be an exciting one, so keep you eyes peeled for that!

If you have been following me on snapchat you will probably know I have been visiting my hometown, Madrid and I thought this time I would take you along with me.
When I go to Madrid I love getting all my beauty treatments done, as not only do they have some amazing salons but its also much cheaper than it is in London, so if you are thinking of getting a beauty overdose I would definitely suggest you visit Madrid! In this blog I am taking you to my favourite salon for a new anti aging facial by Germaine de Capuccini, I am also getting a blow-dry and visiting some of my favourite shops, including a sneaky trip to Sephora! I hope you enjoy this and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel for 2 videos a week.

I have recently run out of my much loved YSL Touche Eclat Foundation and I thought I would try out the reformulated Diorskin Forever Foundation, given I had heard so many wonderful things about it. I also purchased some of Mikasa Beauty’s new makeup brushes and their lemon drop sponge, which is fairly similar in style to a beauty blender but slightly more affordable! In this video I review all of these products and also show you how I get along with this foundation throughout an entire day. I am also sharing my full everyday makeup routine so I hope you enjoy it and if you do please don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.
