Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl Set

I find Soap & Glory makeup to be a bit hit & miss so, even though I'd heard really good things about their Smoulder Kohl eyeliners I was still a little reluctant to try them. However, when I saw a four piece set for just £7 in the Boots Boxing Day sale, I decided it was time to give them a go, especially as I'd be paying just over the price of one (£5) to try out a variety of colours.

OOTD - Family Meal

This Saturday evening I went out for a meal with some of my family to meet my soon-to-be brother-in-law's family so that we could all get to know each other. I knew it was going to be quite a casual evening (most of the men went in their football tops!), but I wanted to make a little bit of an effort.

Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Brush Set

Building up a collection of really good makeup brushes can be pretty darn expensive. A good quality foundation brush alone can cost in excess of £30, so building up your collection one by one soon gets pricey, but the trouble with sets can often been that there's one or two duds that you know you'll never use, so you feel like you're wasting your money. Zoeva brushes were massively raved about in the blogging community last year, this rose gold set in particular, as not only being relatively affordable but really good quality too, so naturally they ended up on my Christmas wishlist! Now I've had a bit of time to play around with them, I thought I'd let you know my thoughts.

Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes

I don't think I've ever seen so much hype around a book in the beauty community before. Sali Hughes, weekend columnist for The Guardian, has created quite a stir with her first book, and I was keen to see what all the fuss was about, so this immediately went onto my Christmas list, and I was lucky enough to receive it. Now I can see what all the well deserved hype was for.

My Favourite Highlighters

For some, highlighter is one of those summer-only products, but I like to give my face a bit of a glow all year round - just a subtle sheen to perk up my complexion on a drab winter's day. Until recent years, highlighter was one of those steps that I tended to skip in my routine, and I probably had just one sad,unloved highlighter sitting at the bottom of my makeup bag, but now I seem to have amassed quite a few in a short space of time, and these are my top three.
