Grow Gorgeous Hair Care - First Impressions: Plus, Black Friday Offer!

grow gorgeaous haircare range review

Grow Gorgeous is a haircare brand that encourages growth, thicker and better conditioned hair. It's a brand I've always wanted to try but never got round to it despite their recent arrival in the larger Boots stores. The ex Deciem brand seems to have a bit of a cult following amongst bloggers. They all seem to love it! So, to say I'm really pleased to be given the opportunity to give my hair some much-needed tlc is an understatement.

I was never blessed with a thick mane of hair - you know, the type that you see in shampoo adverts. At best, it was fine but lots of it. Now it's at that menopausal stage where its thinner and looks very ageing (especially around the hairline). Plus I'm also noticing the speed in growth has slowed down a little, especially this year.

Product empties: Make-Up #3

It's empties time again. And for once, it makes a nice change to feature some make-up products this time round. Reaching the end of a makeup product is really satisfying for me, as it can only mean two things: they're either holy grails or I've found a new favourite! Whichever the one, it's still gives me a good excuse to but more makeup. Lol!

Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette | Review & Swatches

Zoeva En Taupe Eyeshadow Palette: Review and Swatches

It's quite shameful to say that despite being a palette addict, I'd still hadn't owned a single eyeshadow collection from blogger's fav, Zoeva. Surprisingly, En Taupe  was one I'd been eyeing up the most. For some strange reason, I found myself gravitating towards its rather unique, but very appealing Taupe-y theme.
Agreed - En Taupe won't be to everyone's cup of tea. Its cooler hue along with its soft and subtle approach probably wouldn't excite the masses like a warmer palette would do. But sometimes you just want something a little bit quieter and daytime-friendly for use during the Winter months. And I think it's safe to say, En Taupe will provide exactly that.

Holiday Edition: Sugar Glow Highlighter Kit | Anastasia Beverly Hills

Sugar Glow Highlighter Kit Anastasia Beverly Hills

As part of the Holiday season (ahem...we call it Christmas over here!) Anastasia Beverly Hills has released another highlighting Glow Kit - Sugar this time, and this has my name written all over it! The shades featured in this limited edition are bang-on, and are far more flattering for my skin tone. I'm so glad I held out as these are bloody gorgeous! I've wanted to own a glow kit for such a long time, but unfortunately, with each released kit, I saw only two shades that I'd use out of the four. So, I didn't bother. However, it looked like my luck had changed when Anastasia decided to release this new kit. I thought I could use at least three! Then discovered all four - Sweet!

Review : Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

Influenster is a program anyone can participate in, where they send you products complimentary to review. Up until recently, it was only available in the US. So when I heard they had arrived over here, I decided to sign up even though I wasn't really expecting anything. Then out of the blue I received an email saying "You're in!" and that a sample was on it's way delivered in what's known as a Vox Box. I nearly fell off the chair when I discovered it was going to be something from Marc Jacobs!!! And a full sized one at that! So today, I'll be sharing my thoughts on a mascara I've been wearing all week - the Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara.
