Goodies From Kiko Sale

Hi, everyone! 

Shopping at Kiko is a once in a blue moon activity for me, (and a very therapeutic one too!) during that odd occasion when I can escape from the fringes of this seaside town. Shopping wise, the town centre only provides the basics and there isn't much else on offer unless you're after buckets and spades. We're also at the end of the line here which can only mean one thing; when you want something extra special, you have to travel more further a field; or in my case, further inland which is normally Norwich.

5 For Under £5 #1

Hello, fellow beauties!

I thought it would be great to start up a nice little bargain post series on products that are £5 and under to celebrate all things good about drugstore makeup. Hasn't it come on a storm in last 5 or so years? You have to agree, we've certainly seen some changes over the years and it's probably at its best EVER in terms of quality. Of course, there is soo much out there now and it would be really difficult to name every one in one long blog post that's worthy of a mention. So after having a good ole rummage and getting lost into my never ending labyrinth of makeup, (I wish!) I finally managed to narrow it down to 5, which was really hard to do. So here it is! Hope you enjoy!

Mini Haul From Space.NK

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champange Split in Flowerchild/ Champange Pop & Emma Hardie Amazing Face Starter Kit

Look at me publishing on a Wednesday!

When visiting unexplored territories, it's always a real treat when you discover and browse around stores that you don't have closer to home. Space.NK is one of them, and I haven't shopped there since leaving ole London Town, 20 odd years ago, (I know! Way too long!) My nearest store is now Cambridge, which is a good 2 hrs away by train. So we really could do with one in Norwich. Something that is long-overdue in my humble opinion, which has one of the few decent shopping areas in all of East Anglia.

Discovering Products from Nu Skin

Nu Skin Epoch Marine Mud Mask and Contouring Lip Gloss

Nu Skin is a brand that sells premium anti-ageing products, haircare and cosmetics, and claims they are formulated using the latest technology in cosmetology science. Originally founded in the US, it is commonly known as one of those multi-level marketing companies, where their customers often become the distributors themselves, selling the products to the general public - a bit like Avon, if you like. I discovered this brand only recently, through my cousin who lives in Spain, and also a niece of a friend who lives in the UK who kindly sent me some products to try. Today, I'll be sharing with you a Mud Mask, a sample of Sole Solution Heel Cream and their Contouring Lip Gloss in Clear.

Mini Haul From Makeup Geek

Yes, I'm very late to the party, aren't I? But I wanted to wait for the country to "calm down" after the initial arrival of US brand, Makeup Geek, as I felt these were featured on every blog known to man! You know, I can be a bit of a funny bugger at times, as when something that has been hyped up to the hill as these shadows, I can find it off putting, and often encourage me to turn in the opposite direction! Of course, there's no need to apologise! After all, we all love sharing what we love!

Artis Oval Brush Dupe from EBay

If you're a complete makeup junkie like I am, you'll will have seen these odd looking brushes floating around in the blogosphere for quite a while now, and probably also discovered just how "bloody expensive" a set of these would cost you if you were to buy from designer brush brand Artis. Despite the fact that they can be purchased separately, a large foundation brush similar to the one I have would still set you back around £40!!! Still too expensive? Don't fret my friends, as I have something that's much more purse friendly to show you, and one that's not going to force you to take out a second mortgage!
