If it wasn't for blogging...

Saturday, 19 May 2012


... I'd probably have a lot more money, but I wouldn't have all these amazing products which I now can't imagine life without and would of never thought of purchasing before I started blogging. All the above products have become staples in my collection and are seriously life savers!

Liz earle skin care - how did I ever live without it? My skin loves the stuff. My liz earle skin care routine has really improved my skin, which is an utter nightmare at times. I like to keep my skin care routine the same, and I'm sure i will continue to use these products for a very long time.

Origins ginzing eye cream - this little pot leaves my eyes feeling really moisturised, brightens them, de-puffs, tightens them and reduces redness. All that goodness in one little pot.

Moroccan oil - my utter favourite discovery since blogging, it leaves my hair feeling so soft and shiny and looking really healthy. I know it's very expensive, but I will be forever repurchasing this because it is so worth it. Bank balance forgive me?

John frieda full repair deep conditioner - i've tried a lot of deep conditioners and non of them have really been that great. This one is lovely, and actually makes my hair feels so soft and look really healthy and shiny.

Tangle teezer - my hair can get it's self into a right mess sometimes, so my tangle teezer is a life saver. I don't think i've used another brush since buying this.

Real techniques brushes -  the perfect make up brushes. They are so soft and make make up application so easy and flawless. Good bye to the days of applying make up with what could pass of as a paint brush.

Rimmel wake me up foundation - a blogging hype purchase. I'm a sucker for a hype. This foundation is fantastic, it has the perfect coverage, leaves your skin looking awake, when it really isn't and even better it's from the drug store and costs under a tenner!

Loreal lumi magique primer -  this primer is a keeper. My face just looks so glowy and luminous when I use this. It's a shame it doesn't effect the longevity of my make up, however it does exactly what it says on the bottle.

Collection 2000 lasting perfect concealer -  yet again another blogger hype. Finally a concealer which covers and lasts for hours. Shame the writing on the packaging it's self doesn't last as long.

Tweezerman mini tweezers - tweezers are tweezers, I used to think. But there is something about these tweezers, they plunk even the smallest of hairs and make eyebrow shaping so easy and quick!

MUA heaven and earth palette -  I love this palette, I use it so much and I still can't believe it only costs £4! I would have never thought of buying this if it weren't for blogging.

Nars Orgasm - never mind just this blush shade, nars in general. I would have never considered paying such high prices for make up before, but it's fast become one of my favourite make up brands! Nars orgasm is the perfect shimmery pink, this will never not be in my collection.

Maybelline colour tattoos - as you have probably guessed, I give into a lot of blogging hype! Well there's hype for good reason yeah? I really like these eye shadows, they are super pigmented and there staying power is amazing!

Rimmel stay matte powder - finally a powder that doesn't make me look cakey or like a ghost. I would have never considered buying this before and now it's a daily essential.

  5. My love of beauty products grew out of control when I discovered YouTube and Blogger! I love it though because now I own products that actually work and do what they're supposed to, plus, it's just so much fun to shop! I'm eager to try out the Origins GinZing eye cream, Tangle Teezer and Real Techniques brushes. I keep hearing too many amazing reviews!
