You Beauty Discovery May Review

Another month means another You Beauty Discovery shortlist of products. This month features the likes of Too Faced, Benefit and The Body Shop amongst many other great brands. If you are unsure about what You Beauty Discovery, it is a monthly subscription box for which you pay £6.95 - this includes delivery. You get to pick two products from a selection and you also get extras which are mainly samples. It is a great alternative to Birchbox/Glossybox as it is considerably cheaper and you have complete control over what you want to receive! I will leave a link at the bottom of the post to their website, should you want to take a look.

My Selection:
  • Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner 
This is my current eyeliner and seeing as it is almost finished I wanted a back up as I absolutely love it! I like a precise line when it comes to eyeliner and this gives it but I would say it requires some practice before getting it right as the tip can be a bit hard to control some times. 

  • The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil
Argan Oil is great for it's moisturising properties and I have very dry skin and hair so this should be great! I also like the fact that it is solid as most of the time when oil is in liquid form we tend to use more than needed so with this I have more control.

  • Dr.Organic - Organic Snail Gel
  • Jimmy Choo Man
  • Voucher for 20% off beauty and fragrance at M&S
Thank you very much for reading! I hope you liked the post! Let me know if you have tried any of the products in this months selection and what you think about them. If you have done a review for this month then link it in the comments, I would love to read it! Have a lovely day.

Top 5 High End Beauty Favourites

Hi guys!
Me and the amazing Smoothamy have decided to a post on our favourites! We thought it would be great to cover both sides of the spectrum - high end and drugstore seeing as there are amazing products on each side. I have done high-end favourites whereas Amy has decided to drug-store favourites! So don't forget to check out her brilliant post! If you like any of these products let me know! I would love to find out what you think of them and whether you use them in your makeup routine! If you've done a similar post then link it down below I'd love to read it! 
  • Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette £32
I'm in the love with natural eye look, I can't get enough of neutral shadows. This palette is absolutely amazing for that, it includes nine versatile and beautiful shadows to give the eye a nice touch! There are 3 sections day/classic/fashion that each feature 3 beautiful eyeshadows to give you a desired look. It also comes with a leaflet that helps advise what shadows to use for a different look. I will be doing an in-depth review of this pretty soon with swatches.

  • MAC Lipstick in 'Ruby Woo' £15.50
I know a lot of people love this lipstick and I can see why, its classy and really emphasises your features. It's a beautiful shade of red that I would say anyone can wear. I'm wearing it in the picture of me on my blog. I personally think it's a great investment as I use it quite a lot and still a considerable amount left!

  • Benefit Roller Lash Mascara £19.50
This product has been everywhere in the past couple of months seeing as it launched recently. This mascara is amazing, out of all the mascaras I've tried they don't compare to this! I would say it is more of a lengthening mascara than a curling one however the result it gives is nonetheless stunning! With this mascara I have no need for eyelash extensions!

  • Benefit High Beam £19.50
Such a lovely product for highlighting! It gives such a beautiful healthy glow especially when used on the cheekbones, it really helps to bring out your features. I like to use it with conjunction with Benefit's Hoola to add dimension to my face. If you prefer a liquid highlight over a powder highlight then this is the one for you! 

  • MAC Pro Longwear Concealer £17
This concealer provides perfect coverage and stays put throughout the whole day. I use this with my studio-sculpt foundation to give an additional coverage. Out of all the MAC concealers I have tried I prefer this one the most. I would advise you to try this concealer if your need of one, although I would recommend you to work quickly as it sets soon after being applied.

Pink Parcel May Review

I received my Pink Parcel for the month of May a couple of days ago so I really wanted to show you the lovely goodies in this months box! Pink Parcel is different from other subscription boxes in that it is designed to make your time of the month much more enjoyable and bearable! They send you a range of products varying from beauty to food as well as a good supply of either tampons or towels depending on your preference. Your first month is £5.95 and from then onwards it is £9.99 per month - this includes delivery. They also offer a Teen Parcel which is aimed at teens. I will leave a link at the bottom of the post to their website and previous reviews should you want to take a look.


  • L'Occitane Immortelle Essential Water - This is an alcohol free toner that helps to remove makeup and soothe skin. Personally I have only ever tried their hand creams but I look forward to trying some of their skincare!  
  • Richard Ward Gravitiser Sleekening Cream - I do tend to get some frizzness so I am interested to see how this product works and it smells quite nice! 
  • Anatomicals Botanical Hydrating Rose Face Mask - I have always been quite fond of Anatomicals and their interesting product names & descriptions. Since I have dry skin I have high hopes that this mask will do my skin some good. 
  • Flamingo Candles Lemon & Lime Mojito Scent Melt - The smell is extremely invigorating and a lovely spring scent.
  • Drinking Fudge (Classic Chocolate flavour) - Looks to be quite an interesting concept and I will probably be breaking this out on a cold rainy day to cheer me up
  • Montezuma's Organic Milk Chocolate Butterscotch - Chocolate always makes me feel better so I am glad to have received this and I absolutely love Montezuma's products! 
  • 18 normal pads and 5 night time pads 

I hoped you like this post and thanks for reading! Have you ever tried Pink Parcel? Let me know in the comments what you thought about this months box! I hope you have a lovely day and don't forget to check them out!
