The Cruelty Free Beauty Box Review – June 2018

 

Cruelty Free Beauty Box

 

This is the first subscription box I have tried from The Cruelty Free Beauty Box and honestly it was beautiful before I’d even opened the box! Straight away the rose gold logo had me hooked! (Shallow, but true!) The Cruelty Free Beauty Box is primarily a Subscription service for Cruelty Free makeup, beauty and hair products – but they also offer One Off Boxes, Build Your Own Boxes AND they have a general Beauty Shop, AND a Reward Scheme! So pretty much all bases covered there!

Cruelty Free Beauty BoxThe Subscription Box is the perfect way to try out different brands and products that you may not normally come across – plus the amazing thing is if you fall in love with something you can continue to buy this from their Beauty Shop! The Month to Month Subscription costs £14.95 (this can be cancelled at any time) and the 3 Month Prepay costs £43.50 (£14.50 per month). They also have a 6 Month Prepay for £84.00 which reduces this down to £14.00 per month. This all being said, the value I received was way more than £14.95 (my math makes it over £30) so this really is super affordable – plus they even give discount on first orders!! That was too many numbers!! So let’s get going!

 

 

 

Cruelty Free Beauty Box

 

 

 



 

Pure Purpose – Natural Deodorant Cream – Lemon Breeze

RRP £9.50

Pure Purpose

 

Finding Cruelty Free Deodorant can be a bit of a challenge, so this was a lovely product to include – not the most glamorous but definitely appreciated!! The fact that this deodorant comes in cream form, in a jar, could be a little unnerving. But! This genuinely works! It also leave underarms feeling super soft and moisturised which is a huge bonus. And the scent……. Oh the scent. This Lemon Breeze fragrance is so subtle but so refreshing and actually quite addictive! They also have a Lavender Fresh scent too which I would imagine smells just as beautiful. This deodorant is 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free.

 

 

Pure Purpose

 

 

 


Friendly Soap Shea Butter Facial Cleansing Bar

RRP £2.62

Friendly Soap

 

So this gorgeous little beauty bomb is a nourishing face cleanser in the form of a bar of soap – and it literally is beautiful. Lathered up with a little water it creates and creamy foamy cleanser that is just a dream. It smells incredible and is prefect for sensitive skin. It is super calming and leaves skin feeling as though it has already been moisturised! As well as being cruelty free, the ingredients are all so natural and the box is even made from plastic free recycled (and recyclable) packaging. Again this also has an alternative option of Cocoa Butter which is described as being good for dry skin and even eczema! At such an affordable price on its’ own I am positive I will be loading up!

 

 

 

Friendly Soap

 

 

 


Evolve Hyaluronic Eye Complex

RRP 5ml £8.00 / 10ml £16.00

Evolve Organic Beauty

So, a funny story! A little advice with this one – read the note inside the box.

In my excited state I of course had to jump straight in and ended up losing almost half of this product. It quite clearly states inside the box to be careful when opening this product due to its watery consistency – of course I didn’t see this until afterwards. Completely my fault – so please learn from my mistake! Anyway! This product is more of an eye treatment to me than an eye cream as such, and it is SO luscious. It instantly feels refreshing under the eyes and feels so soothing! This is genuinely amazing on tired eyes (which I seem to have a lot…) and it reduces puffiness like magic. The full size comes with a roller ball applicator and given how refreshing it is just using finger tips my brain can’t quite comprehend how amazing it would be with a roller ball! Definitely a favourite!

Evolve Organic Beauty

 

 


Johnny Concert Amplified Eyeshadow – Desert Trap

RRP £12.00

Johnny Concert

 

This was a nice surprise to find as Johnny Concert is a brand I strangely haven’t come across before. (I have since been nosing through their website!). The shade Desert Trap is a stunning Khaki shimmer shade that is absolutely bang on for me! The undertones are neutral so this would literally suit anyone, and the golden reflects give it that extra glow. A simply beautiful shade. Again this products’ ingredients are just brilliant, and as beautiful as this shade is there are SO many shades to choose from (29 if I counted correctly). Click here to view all the shades!

 

Johnny Concert

 

 

 


Delune Mandarin Dry Body Oil Mist

RRP £16.00

Delune

 

 

Now this product – a dry body oil mist – I wasn’t quite sure how to go about using. So (for once) I just followed the instructions and BAM! This is beyond awesome! It is a light weight but intensely moisturing spray body mist that is so ridiculously easy to use! A light spritz transforms the skin making it silky soft, and it smells amazing!!!! Because it is such a light mist it doesn’t even need to dry! This really is epic, and if I was forced to choose a favourite product from this box I think this has to be it!

 

 

 

 


The Cruelty Free Beauty Box – How It All Started!

“Our Founder, Chloe has always been on a mission to make a difference. However, signing petitions, speaking out and avoiding Companies just wasn’t good enough-Yes, it kept her awake at night! She wanted something much bigger than that and to help people see what was happening in the world of Animal Testing and to help them make the change to Cruelty Free – Many people say you can’t change the world, if we all though like that what would get done’?
We have all always been aware of animal testing and boycotted the Companies who allow this, but then as time went on we realised we hadn’t been avoiding them at all. We realised just how sneaky Companies could be – Logo’s were fake, Companies sold in China, they didn’t test but 3rd parties did…. And so it unraveled! That’s when the light bulb went off – We needed something that made it simple for us to enjoy a Beauty Box but one we could trust & enjoy without any guilt whatsoever! Oh & to show these “ugly” companies that it’s beyond acceptable… and so the journey of The Cruelty Free Beauty Box began!”

 


So there it is!! Whether you want to surprise yourself with unknown new products every month, create your own box or just shop in a place that you can trust, The Cruelty Free Beauty Box has cracked it!!

Revolution X Soph Full Collection Review & Swatches

 

Revolution X Soph

 

 

I’m not sure if its’ appropriate to be quite as excited as I was about this collection, but after I tried the first Revolution X Soph collaboration I could not wait to get my hands on the new products! When Soph announced on her YouTube channel that she had created more products with Revolution and that they were being released that day, I was literally a woman on a mission. And they are so ridiculously beautiful! So here they all are!!

 


Revolution X Soph Eyeshadow Palette

Makeup Revolution Soph XThis is just a stunning palette. Such an incredible range of shades, I have already done a full review of this palette (click here for Full Review) but shades that are worth bringing up again are Cuppa Tea, Peaches, Pumpkin and Pine Tree. And Petrol. Just all of them!

Makeup Revolution Soph X

 

 

 

 

Revolution X Soph Swatches

 


Revolution X Soph Highlighter Palette

Makeup Revolution Soph XIf you have watched Sophs’ YouTube vidoes you will know that a highlighter palette was a must, and she definitely didn’t hold back! Again I have already included this palette in another review (click here for Full Review). Literally every shade is gorgeous, and any shades that are too light/dark to use as highlighters for your skin tone work fabulously as eyeshadows too!

Makeup Revolution Soph X

Revolution X Soph Swatches


Revolution X Soph Extra Spice Palette

OK, so now onto the new stuff. This palette is so freaking pretty! The shades are in some way bolder than the previous palette but are still so wearable.

Revolution X Soph Extra Spice

 

 

This paired with the tones of the first palette make the absolute dream team. The shade Cookie Dough is by far my favourite transition/crease shade I think I have ever used! Lakes is a stunning khaki tone and combined with the rose gold shimmer called Dreams these instantly grabbed my attention, but literally all of the colours are just beautiful.

 

 

 

Revolution X Soph Extra Spice

 

I love the reversed colour scheme used for the packaging, with the rose gold lid and pale pink writing (opposite to the first palette) and this one as with the first includes a full mirror. As always with Revolution eyeshadows the pigmentation is incredible, and at just £10.00 it really is too good to miss!

 

Revolution X Soph Extra Spice

 

Revolution X Soph Extra Spice Swatches

 


Revolution X Soph Lipsticks

Revolution X Soph Lipstick

Soph plus lipsticks just has to equal nude shades right? Exactly right. There are 3 shades to this collection and i am in love with every single one! The packaging is as cute as you could imagine, with the frosted pink bullet and rose gold lid. Also, these are £4.00! It’s madness!

 

 

Revolution X Soph Lipstick

 

Syrup is the lightest shade of the three and is a stunning pale nude with a brown undertone that looks so natural and elegant.

Cake is more of a rosey nude, and fortunately is my perfect “my lips but better” shade!

Fudge is the darkest shade and is a gorgeous rich brown nude.

Overall, I think it is safe to say I am obsessed with this collection. Even though I do have a fair amount of other palettes I genuinely think that for a beginner these palettes together are everything you would need to create SO many looks. Combining these eyeshadows with the popping highlight shades and beautiful nude lipsticks this collaboration is just absolutely genius! Congratulations Soph – you nailed it!!

The Pip Box Review (May) – Cruelty Free & Vegan Friendly Beauty!

The Pip Box Review (May) – Cruelty Free & Vegan Friendly Beauty!

The Pip Box Review (May) – Cruelty Free & Vegan Friendly Beauty!

 

The Pip Box

 

Here we have my first ever Pip Box! I was so excited to recieve this as not only is it such an easy way to try out new products, but also introduces you to brands you may not have come across before! The Pip Box is a Subscription Box containing all Cruelty Free & Vegan friendly beauty products (an award winning subscription box might I add!). All products are either full sized or travel sized – no sachets or samples, with an average box value of £45 – for £13.50!? Another incredible part to point out is that 50p from every box is donated to Animal Free Research UK. On top of all that, The Pip Box is named after her dog Pip – so cute!!!

The Pip Box

“Every Pip Box contains at least 5 items, one of which is always a full sized make-up item. Unlike most beauty subscription boxes we never feature one-time-use sachet samples. 

Our current average value per box is just over £45 and our current feedback rating is 4.7 out of 5, as voted by our subscribers themselves. 

We make sure our box edits are always on trend and suitable for the season – think cooling mists and coral nail polishes in the summer, with matte lipsticks and hydrating balms in the winter. 

You’ll also never receive the same item twice because every edit is created bespoke each and every month.”

 

So let’s get into the products included in May 2018’s Pip Box!

 


MoYou Stamping Set

MoYouWeirdly enough I have recently been researching stamping and watching alot of YouTube tutorials, with MoYou being the focus! Bare in mind i am definitely no nail technician, but this stamping set is so easy to use! Much easier than I had expected! This particular plate is from the Kaleidoscope Collection and would normally cost £5.99, along with the Classic Stamper – usually £2.99. Overall this duo is the perfect introduction to stamping and has taken my DIY mani’s to another level!

MoYou


Bloomtown Roll-On Infused Oil

Bloomtown

 

 

This is an absolute gem! I had no idea what to do with this initially as I have not come across these before so I just followed the instructions – and I am in love! Not only does this smell absolutely amazing, but it genuinely boosts my mood! Applied to “pulse points” as the instructions recommend this works perfectly as a subtle fragrance AND it just makes you smile! Usually priced at £4.80, I’ve no idea how it works but I am obsessed!

 

 

 


Glo By Glory Glo Stix Semi-Matte Liquid Lipstick

Glo By GloryNow here is the perfect example of discovering new brands… I had not come across Glo By Glory before so was intrigued to try this out. It is a stunning, full size liquid lipstick with a gorgeous finish (as it states in its’ title – a semi-matte finish). This would normally be priced around £14 (the website is in dollars) so with just this product alone the value included in this box is insane! The colour (Sugar Dumpling) is absolutely beautiful, a soft but rich dusty rose shade that has brilliant pigmentation but still looks natural. Super adorable packaging, a genuinely lovely product!

Glo By Glory Swatches

 


Conscious Skincare Shampoo & Conditioner

Conscious Skincare

 

Another brand that is new to me – and it’s hair! This hair duo are in the Grapefruit and Cedarwood collection and for the 250ml sizes it would normally cost about £23 for a full sized set (these are travel sized – perfect to try a range out!) The packaging is so simple and clean looking and the scent is heavenly! There is definitely the grapefruit there but in a sort of soft musky way… difficult to describe but SO addictive!

 

 

 

 


 

The Pip Box

 

So!!! A fabulous range to start with! While a subscription to beauty products isn’t something I have done before, it is such an affordable way to try out new brands and products – and so much fun! There is also a 10% discount if you sign up for 3 months at a time instead of the usual monthly plan, PLUS there are 2 subscription plans to choose from. You can also earn “Pip Points” (seriously satisfying to say…) with your orders that you can redeem as vouchers.

 

On a side note if you like looking at pictures of cute pups (who doesn’t…) then check out the About Us page too!

ZAO Silk Foundation Review and Swatches

ZAO Silk Foundation Review and Swatches

ZAO Silk Foundation Review and Swatches

 

ZAO Silk Foundation

 

OK, so while the packaging of a foundation shouldn’t really be important, the ZAO Silk Foundation just looks incredible! However, packagine does not reflect the quality of a product – so let’s jump in and see if this really is as good as it looks! ZAO products are free from Parabens and Toxic Preservatives, and – obviously – Cruelty Free!

 

ZAO Silk Foundation

 

ZAO Claims:
The light texture of ZAO Silk Foundation applies easily and meets the needs of those who like a luminous complexion with full coverage and a natural finish. Besides organic silica contained in bamboo hydrosol, organic sweet almond oil, jojoba and shea butter give this foundation a nourishing effect. It has a mattifying finish and uniform coverage for a long lasting coverage throughout the day.

 

 

ZAO Silk Foundation

 

The first thing that strikes me with this foundation (other than the gorgeous packaging of course!) is the beautiful texture that I can only describe as “silky”. It almost feels like a moisturiser, it is SO light and creamy. I find applying this with a damp sponge gives the most flawless finish, although it does blend beautifully with a brush too. This foundation is described as “strong coverage”, and it really is incredible how something so light can do so much! Definitely a full coverage foundation, but it doesn’t look cakey!

ZAO Silk Foundation SwatchesI would say there is a demi-matte finish to this foundation that keeps it looking completely natural. The shade range is fairly decent with 9 shades – I have the shade “Light Sand” which is absolutely perfect for my yellow-toned pale skin. I must say though, even if you aren’t sure on your exact shade match this product is so blendable that it would be so easy to make it work regardless!

 

ZAO Silk Foundation Swatches

 

In regards to the packaging I have probably said enough, but just in case…. This is frosted glass with a pump applicator – and the bamboo lid!? Just amazing. While the glass is probably not the most travel friendly, it feels and looks absolutely stunning on display and really doesn’t seem that heavy! Mine also came in a cute little case too!

ZAO Silk Foundation

 

 

Price wise the ZAO Silk Foundation is at the higher end of what I would normally be willing to spend on a foundation – £34.95. While I wouldn’t usually use a more expensive foundation on an every day basis and would probably save it for special occasions, a little goes a very long way with this – one pump is enough to cover my entire face – so this will last for SUCH a long time even using every day! (Plus I do have a discount code below!)

 

 

 

With such an incredible finish and with so little product needed, the ZAO Silk Foundation really is an absolute joy! In my opinion this is definitely worth spending some extra pennies on, I see it as more of an investment! Beautiful packaging for a beautiful product!

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define

 

I have finally got my hands on the hyped up Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer! These concealers were a pretty big launch from Makeup Revolution, and some are describing this as a dupe for the infamous Tarte Shape Tape Concealer (which is considerably more expensive!). So! Let’s dive in!

 

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define

 

Makeup Revolution Claims:
The concealer for everyone. 25 shades ranging from fair to deep, in cool, neutral and warm undertones. Lightweight yet full coverage concealer to cover blemishes, even skin tone and counteract dark circles, with a matte finish that won’t settle or accentuate fine lines and pores. Long wearing intense pigment that can also be used to contour and add definition. Our large doe foot applicator allows for smooth application that won’t drag on the delicate skin under your eyes.

 

 

 

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Swatches

 

Firstly, I think the shade range needs to be mentioned again…. 25 shades!? Absolutely incredible! I found my shades quite easily as I already have the Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation (Full Review Here) so that is a pretty accurate guide, but Makeup Revolution do have full shade descriptions :

C0 – pure white. For the fairest skin tones.
C0.5 – For fair skin tones with a pink undertone
C1 – For fair skin tones with neutral undertone
C2 – For fair skin tones with yellow undertone
C3 – For fair skin tones with neutral undertone
C4 – For light skin tones with pink undertone
C5 – For light skin tones with golden undertone
C6 – For light/medium skin tones with neutral undertone
C6.5 – For light/medium skin tones with a yellow undertone
C7 – For medium skin tones with peach undertone
C8 – For medium skin tones with a golden undertone
C8.5 – For medium skin tones with a yellow undertone
C9 – For medium skin tones with a peach undertone
C10 – For medium skin tones with a golden undertone
C10.5 – For medium skin tones with a yellow undertone
C11 – For medium/dark skin tones with a golden undertone
C12 – For medium/dark skin tones with a neutral undertone
C12.5 – For medium/dark skin tones with a golden undertone
 C13 – For dark skin tones with a warm undertone
C13.5 – For dark skin tones with a neutral undertone
C14 – For dark skin tones with a cool undertone
C15 – For dark skin tones with a neutral undertone
C16 – For dark skin tones with a warm undertone
C17 – For dark skin tones with a neutral undertone
C18 – For dark skin tones with a warm undertone

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define

 

So! Once you have found your shades the fun really begins! The first amazing thing about these beauties is the packaging. Slightly “fatter” than typical concealer packaging but I love it! Plus this allows for the mega doe foot applicator which is honestly epic (and for some reason ridiculously satisfying to look at….). This combined with the rose gold detailing I think the packaging in general is pretty perfect.

 

 

 

I have the shades C0, C2 & C6. While it may seem like quite a jump between C2 & C6 these are actually my perfect shades depending on whether I have fake tanned or not! And as with their foundation stick I just mix them together when I am somewhere in the middle. I also picked up the white mixer just in case and this is SO stunning! I tend to like my concealer to look as natural as possible on a day to day basis, but when I am doing more of a full face of makeup mixing C0 with C2 lightens everything up to cover and highlight under the eyes.

 

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Swatches
(Left to Right) C0, C2, C6

Of course it doesn’t really matter what the packaging is like (or shouldn’t anyway..) and it comes down to the actual product. Thankfully, this concealer is genuinely beautiful. The application is a dream (again, super satisfying using the giant doe foot!) and the consistency is so creamy. As far as coverage goes for me it is bang on. It is fairly full coverage, but doesn’t completely blank everything out. It blends out beautifully – I just use my finger – and doesn’t crease or break up throughout the day. If you are looking for a concealer that literally covers everything then this layers up brilliantly. I wouldn’t necessarily go with more than 2 layers of this as it may start to look a bit cakey, but it is really easy to build up. It does dry down fairly quickly so bare that in mind too.

 

 

Overall, I am obsessed. At £4.00 – yes, £4.00, the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer is absolutely genius. It is so easy to customize the coverage of this and the shades match perfectly. Even when building up the coverage it still looks natural! It really is just fabulous – more please!!!!

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation Review & Swatches

 

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation Swatches

 

So here we have another new addition to my foundation collection. The PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation is described as being full coverage with a natural finish – sounds incredible yes!? This is currently the only liquid foundation from the PHB collection, so let’s dive in!

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation

 

PHB Claims:
Skin nourishing liquid foundation that blurs the line between makeup and skin care. Made with organic ingredients that nourish and protect skin. Long lasting and full coverage foundation with a light and silky texture that won’t clog pores. Provides a natural looking flawless finish.

 

 

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation Swatches

 

This description sounds pretty epic! Any foundation that can also act as skin care is a winner in my book, so I couldn’t wait to give this a whirl. And I must say they are pretty bang on with the coverage and finish description. This is definitely on the thicker side of foundations, but it does blend out beautifully – although personally I find this works best over a dewy primer due to its thick consistency. It dries down fairly quickly too which is worth noting, but the finish is absolutely stunning! It is what I would call a “satin matte”. Not oily or particularly dewy, but it has a subtle sheen which gives a really gorgeous finish. It also doesn’t feel sticky at all, but at the same time it doesn’t feel powdery either! It just feels like super soft skin!

In regards to lasting power this is pretty impressive. After a full day it does tend to sink in to a few lines (which is normal for me) but what I love is it doesn’t start breaking up or getting patchy.

 

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation Swatches

 

The PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation comes in 6 shades which I know isn’t a huge range, but they all have fabulous undertones making them blend in with the skin easily. I have the shade Medium Rose, and this is perfect for when I have fake tanned! It does oxidize a little so bare that in mind too.

 

 

Price wise this foundation is in the middle at £19.95 (site wide discount code below!), but due to the coverage it gives a little goes a long way so this will last you well! The packaging I LOVE. It looks so clean and “green” – so simple but so beautiful.

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation

So overall, I wouldn’t necessarily use this on an every day basis as I tend to steer towards a lighter coverage and BB Creams. However, for days when I want that extra coverage and a more flawless finish it is literally perfect! The finish is stunning and I can depend on this to last well. As a first impression of the brand too, the PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation is definitely a very good start – I can’t wait to try out more of their collection!

BWC Natural Liquid Foundation

 

BWC (Beauty Without Cruelty) is a stunning Cruelty Free Makeup brand that is fairly new to my collection. The first product I am trying from them is the BWC Ultimate Natural Liquid Foundation, and we are off to a very good start!

 

BWC Natural Liquid Foundation

 

BWC Claims:
Ultimate Natural Liquid Foundation fortifies skin with a list of nourishing ingredients including Pentavitin for lasting deep hydration even under the driest conditions, jojoba and vitamin E to maintain the skin’s elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Rice bran wax also creates a smother application and finish. Build-able coverage allows you to customize your look from light to full coverage.

 

 

 

So skincare AND a foundation!? Double winner! BWC’s description is pretty spot on actually, this foundation is super hydrating – but not greasy or oily at all! I typically have combination skin which does tend to get a bit shiny throughout the day – but this lasts well!

BWC Natural Liquid FoundationThe coverage of this foundation is definitely a plus, it is so easy to build up to the coverage you would like without it looking cakey! When first pumping out the foundation it does appear to be quite thick (alarm bells went off in my head….) but this is so deceiving. As soon as I began blending into the skin it just melts into a beautiful “fluid” with a satin matte finish. There is a slight scent to it, I can’t quite put my finger on what it is – just a “clean” scent – but it is SO subtle that you’d have to be literally sniffing my face to even detect it.

 

BWC Natural Liquid FoundationThe shade range for this foundation is on the smaller side, but the undertones of all 5 shades are beautiful and seem to just blend in with the skin tone. I have the shade Light, and while this does already have a yellow base my skins undertone is actually even more yellow (not like a Simpson I promise..). That being said, I can still wear this foundation so easily without having to intermix other products in to make it match – it just blends and works!

 

Price wise this is pretty affordable on the scale of Cruelty Free foundations, coming in at £12.50 – although I do have a site wide discount code at the end of this post!

Overall, this is a great every day foundation – or even every night! The build-able formula is just genius and you can choose your desired coverage! As an introduction to the brand, the BWC Ultimate Natural Liquid Foundation has won me over, and I can’t wait to try more of their collection!

INIKA Liquid Foundation

 

When it comes to Cruelty Free Foundations I have previously been a little set in my ways and haven’t branched out to try new products – until now! And starting with the INIKA Certified Organic Liquid Foundation, I love the finish am so relieved that this is a success! A beautiful foundation, it is right up my street!

INIKA Claims:

INIKA Certified Organic Liquid Foundation combines natural antioxidants, minerals and Certified Organic ingredients to hydrate and illuminate the skin.

 

INIKA Liquid Foundation - Swatches

INIKA’s description of their Liquid Foundation is short and sweet, but nicely rounds up what this foundation is all about. The finish is absolutely stunning, somewhere between matte and glowy – this gives the perfect balance of illuminating the skin without getting oily.

 

I would say this foundation has a medium coverage, but is so buildable. It looks SO natural and lasts amazingly well, and at the end of the day it wears down so naturally – no patchiness or separating in sight! Just perfect!! The consistency is fabulous as for me it is bang in the middle – not too runny to slide all over the place, but not too thick either keeping the natural finish. It gives the coverage without the cake!

 

 

INIKA Liquid Foundation - NudeThere are 8 shades in this foundation, all of which will suit any skin tone perfectly. While this isn’t a huge range of shades, the undertones in them are perfect. I have the shade “Nude”, and while there is a small amount of oxidisation, this was actually a great thing as the shade works beautifully with my pale yellow-toned skin. They have pretty detailed shade descriptions on the website so it is super easy to match yourself up!

 

INIKA Liquid Foundation

This packaging is so chic! It is almost a frosted matte black and the gold detailing gives an extra edge of class. The pump applicator makes it so easy to use and avoids any mess or product wastage. I use one good pump and this covers my entire face. At £33.00, it isn’t the cheapest foundation I have tried, but in my opinion is definitely worth the extra pennies – plus MeiKind have kindly given me a site wide 10% discount code for you below!

 

 

Due to its consistency a little goes a long way, and even though this a new foundation for me I already know I can depend on this when I need my skin to look good and last! The INIKA Liquid Foundation is a beautiful product from a beautiful brand – and going on the quality of this foundation I can’t wait to try out some more products from their collection!

Lottie London Blush Crush

 

Lottie London Blush Crush is among the cutest blushers I think I have seen! I started with one of these, and now have three. They are just so darn adorable! There is an amazing colour range and they are so affordable. Named after male celebrities, these addictive blushers are so satisfying in so many ways!

Lottie London Blush Crush

Lottie London Claims:
A collection of easily blendable powder blushes, inspired by your favourite celeb crushes! Achieve perfectly pinched cheeks worthy of any selfie queen. Available in 6 beautiful and long-lasting shades to intensify your rosy glow. Simply swirl and pop onto cheekbones!

 

The most difficult part of this collection is deciding between your favourite shade or your favourite person, but either way I am hooked! I have the shades “Justin”, “Nick” and “Harry” (although I chose these for the shades and not the person they represent…. definitely… I think…).

Lottie London Justin

Lottie London Justin“Justin” is a gorgeous soft blush in the perfect rose shade. Totally matte, this is the most natural looking blush out of the three.

 

 

Lottie London NickLottie London Nick“Nick” is definitely pink! It is the brightest blush of these and has a shimmer finish (a subtle shimmer though, more glowy than glitter).

 

 

Lottie London HarryLottie London Harry“Harry” is a gorgeous deep red toned blush. Something like this would normally be out of my comfort zone, but the shade is muted and more on the natural side – probably now my favourite!

The pigmentation of these is superb. They are not over the top (so there isn’t the risk of looking like a clown…) but they are pigmented enough to build up and they blend like a dream. They are powder (obviously) but have an almost creamy feel to them which is probably what makes them look so natural and flawless. No chalkiness in sight!

 

 

Packaging wise we have established that they are beyond cute – but they are genuinely bang on. The size is perfect to travel around (and there is a mirror!), and the amount of product included is in my opinion very generous! These are priced at £4.95, which makes me rather happy! Super affordable and a shade for every skin tone and occasion! The Blush Crush Powder Blushes are simply genius – and if you can’t pick your favourite (like me) then just get the lot – after all it would be rude to leave anyone out right!?
