How Much Love Does ‘The Too Faced Natural Love Palette’ Deserve: As a beauty blogger and a makeup artist, I am obsessed with palettes! Whether they are lip palettes, eye palettes or blusher palettes, I collect them all. They are so useful when doing makeup on different people with varying skin tones, eye colours and face shapes, they are often cost effective and space saving in a makeup kit. Over the years I have amassed a vast collection of different palettes from different brands and I am always on the lookout for new releases, particularly in eyeshadows as eye makeup is always my focus, both on myself and for my clients. One such palette that was recently released is the Too Faced Natural Love palette. Too Faced is well known for its high-quality cruelty free makeup. It is a very popular brand, created by Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson in the 90s to bring some life and colour back into the cosmetics industry and since then the company has created some truly gorgeous fun and feminine makeup, including some lovely eyeshadow palettes. Their eyeshadows are generally very pigmented and available in a number of colours and textures so when they released news of the Natural Love palette there was huge excitement. Before long people in other parts of the world were posting pictures of it and swatches of the shadows. After a lot of researching, I decided I was going to buy it and within a few weeks of its release it was in my possession!

Beauty Subscription Box Reveal Birchbox Does ‘Buy One Get One Free’: If you have been keeping up with my posts you will know that beauty subscription boxes are a love of mine and I am always on the lookout for good offers, new boxes and limited editions! In May 2017, Birchbox, a subscription service that has been around since September 2010 for women and 2012 for men, offered customers a buy one get one free box so naturally I had to order one! In case, you’ve never heard of or tried Birchbox, it was created by two friends to make shopping for beauty products easier. As with most subscription box services you can join and cancel your subscription at any time BUT this only applies to the monthly plan with Birchbox, which costs £10 plus £2.95 postage and packaging. When you join you can complete a questionnaire about your beauty likes so that products you receive can be tailored to you in future boxes and you can pick from a monthly, 6 monthly or yearly plan. In each box, you will receive 5 personalised beauty products, and one of those products can be chosen by you or alternatively you can pick the design of the box. The products will be a combination of sample size and full-size items from various brands, some of which will be well known and some less so.

Discover One Of Italy's Finest Brands - Kiko Milano [Brand Focus]: If you’re anything like me, you will love exploring new beauty brands! I spend a lot of my time tracking beauty trends and launches and always get excited when I discover something new or find a new brand to love. Kiko Milano is one such brand! I first found out about Kiko on a trip to Italy many years ago, but at that time I was not into makeup and beauty as I am now and paid very little attention to it. Thankfully, Kiko opened a store in Birmingham right at the time when I was fully loving makeup and now I am a little obsessed with the brand! For those of you that don’t know much or anything about Kiko Milano, as the name suggests, it originates in Italy. The company was established and founded in 1997 and its mission is to give women cutting edge products to suit every budget. All their ranges are of the highest quality, thoroughly tested for safety and animal cruelty-free. There are numerous colours to choose from, different textures and consistencies and everything is delicately fragranced. Kiko produces makeup and skincare as well as makeup brushes and accessories, all of which are excellent. As an added bonus, Kiko also offers a points program called Kiko Rewards, whereby you can earn points to use online and in-store. I am a rewards member and personally love this scheme – I wish more makeup brands would offer something similar! Whenever I visit Birmingham City Centre, I never fail to visit the Kiko store, 1) because they are always introducing new products and makeup ranges and 2) because the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the brand and makeup generally. It is rare I leave the store without purchasing something and in this post, I wanted to share some of my recent purchases, all of which I have used and love!

Beauty Subscription Box Sneak Peak GlossyBox [Review]: Following the Little Known Box review, which is a reasonably new subscription box service, this blog is focusing on an established beauty subscription service called Glossy Box. Each box is delivered every month and contains 5 different beauty items which are generally full-size and tailored to your beauty preferences. You can subscribe for 3, 6 or 12 months and there are also limited edition boxes and a gifting option. I have tried Glossy Box a few times on and off but have never maintained a subscription with them as there are so many great subscription services to choose from now! However, I decided to order a recent box because Glossy Box provided an offer whereby you could receive a bonus box if you subscribed, so I thought why not see what is delivered?

Dippalli Explores Makeup Brands Charlotte Tilbury [Review]: If you love makeup, you will (hopefully!) have heard of Charlotte Tilbury. She is an amazing Makeup Artist, born and trained in London and she has worked with some of the best photographers, models and publications in the world. She has also worked with several beauty brands during her career and in 2013 she finally launched her own makeup range. This has grown exponentially since then and now includes a skincare range as well! In that time, she has won numerous awards and continues to create new and wonderful products for us! If you have never seen or tried her ranges, you are without doubt missing out! From the design of her packaging to the quality of the products, everything she creates exudes beauty, elegance, sophistication and glamour. I first discovered her when her brand arrived at Selfridges in Birmingham and she displayed all her looks. There are 10 in total (so far) and as soon as I saw them I was hooked. I immediately bought The Golden Goddess gift box and since that day I have kept a close watch on everything she creates and releases so I can keep building my collection! This brings me to this review. Not too long ago, I added to my Charlotte Tilbury makeup products and bought a selection of her more recent creations!

As a massive makeup lover, a beauty blogger and a part time makeup artist to boot, I am always trying to keep up with new makeup and beauty trends and releases and visiting the shops both in person and online is both relaxing and research!

The Blackhead Suction Remover Review: The beauty world is not only filled with amazing makeup products but also amazing skincare. I am a major lover of skincare products and innovations! I have recently taken a big interest in looking after my skin and ensuring it is healthy, soft and hydrated and I have tested lots of different creams, facial peels, face masks and serums to see what really makes a difference.

The Little Known Box is one of the newest beauty boxes to hit the market and this is the 2nd box I have tried from the company.
