Eden PerfumesEden Perfumes is a brand I have focused on quite a lot, and I am still obsessed! Their idea of recreating favourites in a Cruelty Free versions is genius.

This is a very new product that has become a favourite incredibly quickly! I received this in The Pip Boxes’ May box, and I am beyond impressed. It doubles up as a fragrance and as a mood booster, and it genuinely works! I haven’t tried any products like this before, and as they have a range of fragrances to choose from I will definitely be buying some more!

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!?

No7 Skin Illuminator Review

No7 Skin Illuminator Review

 

No7 Skin Illuminator

 

No7No7 has such a wide range of products it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start! I came across the No7 Skin Illuminator when I was actually looking for a glowy BB cream. And while this doesn’t provide coverage, it does give such a beautiful glowy sheen to the skin and I have fallen in love with it!

 

No7 Skin IlluminatorNo7 Claims:
Multi-faceted light reflectors instantly enhance your complexion, for a natural looking radiance.

 

And that’s it. It literally does what it says on the tin (or tube in this case). I think that what I love so much about this is just how natural it is. If you’re looking for a blinding highlight then this probably isn’t the product for you, but it gives a radiant glowy finish to the skin that is so addictive! I use it under a BB cream, as I think putting a full coverage foundation over the top would just cover up the gorgeous finish of this and would be a bit pointless! As I mentioned earlier this product doesn’t provide any coverage, but it makes skin look so healthy I end up trying to cover up as little as possible! A thin layer over the top of a moisturiser on “no makeup” days is spot on.

 

No7 Skin Illuminator

 

 

The No7 Skin Illuminator comes in 2 shades. I have the shade Nude and it is absolutely perfect. They also have a Bronze shade which I am desperate to try out as I think it will be beautiful for Summer.

 

 

 

 

The packaging is great, and I love the simple design of No7 products – keeping it looking classic and elegant. The 30ml tube will last ages, as a pea sized amount (a small pea – think “petit-pois”) literally covers the whole face. Priced at £12.50 this can seem on the expensive side compared to other brands with primer style products, but the No7 Skin Illuminator is completely different to any product I have used.

So even though my first encounter with this product was on a search for something different, I am SO glad I found it! A wonderful happy accident – some things are just meant to be!
