Summer Beauty Bits

Welcome back loves. It's been a busy month. I've been working a lot and buying even more so I have major hauls to share with you.. there may even be a YouTube video so watch this space...



First is my new Zoeva brush set dupe. I'm probably so late as these came out a while ago but I sold my old spectrum brushes (first review of the blog) and decided I wanted to up my game and these are truly amazing. They are sooooo soft and precise and apply makeup even better than my old ones. When I googled them I saw the original brushes on the Selfridges site for £65 and I was going to buy them until I saw a dupe version on ebay, that looked exactly the same. So I brought them- whilst having every intention of returning them them if they were crap and sticking with the real deal. But my gard. I was pleasently surprised which as inspired my "Fake it to you make it series" where I will be finding dupes of popular items and reviewing!




Next, Kiko products. For those who don't know I work at the flagship store and so whenever there is a new collection I'm all over it. The Neo Noir collection which launched last weekend has some of Kiko's most pigmented products yet in my opinion. I mean the swatches speak loud and clear for themselves.. That blue eyeshadow is insane against dark skin. I also picked up the 208 water eye-shadow the infamous two in one highlighter and eye-shadow. Does anyone even use it for eye-shadow anymore? 

And with matte liquid lipsticks dominating the cosmetics industry thanks to Kylie Jenner's lipkits; I decided to grab double touch lipstick that comes with a gloss to put on top- the last swatch of the picture. I actually like the matte red so much that once it dries I leave it alone. #IfItAintBroke




Last pit-stops where MAC and Lush cosmetics. I realised that after using my tea tree Body shop products, they were no longer enough for cleansing my face. In fact they were a bit too harsh; burning any spots on my face and leaving blemishes. So I picked up "Angles on Bare Skin", a natural face and body cleanser consisting of almonds and lavender. It smells really nice and leaves my face far from irritated and fresh. I definitely recommend. Lastly I grabbed a  handmade massage bar called "Shimmy Shimmy" swatches shown above and damn. Look at that glow!!!! I wanted something for my up coming get away with babes that would make my skin glisten in the sun and slay my holiday pictures and I couldn't be happier. Not only is it a moisturizer, it smells amazing and makes your girl glowww #BlackGirlMagic
