Lin & Lo Instant Love Mineral Mascara

 

Hello Beauties,

Happy January .. well hopefully!

Alina & Laura are 2 make up artists who are behind the brand Lin & Lo. They are no strangers to the beauty industry, as their families are involved in the beauty world too. Working all over the world, they have brought together their passion for beauty & make up and their wealth of knowledge of the best quality natural ingredients.

The Instant Love Mascara, is fabulous. Enriched with ceramides to restore and strengthen lashes, it gave me carbon black lashes, that felt conditioned, thick, glossy, with minimal effort. I was really impressed with the length and volume that just 2 coats of this mascara gave me.

There is no clumping or stickiness and the more I think about this, it has to be the easiest to apply mascara I have used in a long time. No mess and no fuss, just fantastic results. I love the brush and how it catches the lashes making sure all lashes get evenly coated.

IMG_20170109_150439374 (2).jpg

I shall be moving over quite a few of my mascara stash in favour of this one! It stayed put and didn’t budge and it was pretty easily removed too, unlike some on the market now, that are near impossible to get off.

I am genuinely very impressed with this mascara, it just oozes quality and a fantastic finish, it really does. I shall be looking into this brand a lot more!

There are a lot of mascaras out there that charge a mint, but are pretty much bog standard. This is a cut above and perhaps that is because the brand is still very niche and they have to work harder to compete, but the quality is definitely there.

 

There is 20% off The Lin & Lo Instant Love Mascara with this month’s Libbie Club and you can find it here: January Libbie Offers.

That is it for now folks

Wonderland Studio Finish Primer

 

Hello Beauties,

Wonderland is a relatively new makeup company, their products are all made in the UK. They have worked within the beauty industry with top brands for over 12 years, before they started their own brand.

They believe that high quality makeup should not cost the earth and have committed themselves to bringing you high-end makeup without the high-end price tag!

IMG_20161213_142824815.jpg Their Studio Finish Primer does not disappoint. Its oil free formula is very lightweight and it glides over the skin, making everything feel much smoother and it is matte sort of light lustre to the skin.

This primer gives a really flawless finish to the skin, it feels so smooth, the perfect canvas for your makeup.

I have to say it performs really well and like a primer I would usually pay a lot more money for. My makeup looked and felt great, there were no oil patches on my face, everything stayed in place and most importantly … there was no makeup sitting in my fine lines and wrinkles!

 

img_20161213_142749861-2

This is a great wee primer, it does exactly what it says it will and it works really well at keeping everything in place. Price wise you can pay a lot of money for a primer that is too heavy, too oily or doesn’t really do anything for you, which really makes this Wonderland primer worth a go @ £12.50, plus you get some free silver glittery eyeshadow pigments worth £6.50 for free!

I do hope you take a look as this is a great offer …

Just What is the Libbie Club and How Does It All Work?

Hey everyone,

Today I would like to explain what the Libbie Club is and how it works. I have been with it from the very start and I find them really easy to be a part of.

The Libbie Club is a part of Latest In Beauty and You Beauty Box who have brought us some of the best Beauty Boxes there are. LIB is a no subscription box ..they bring us hot trendy boxes if and when they have them and You Beauty offers us a subscription alternative which I love as I can always see the value in these boxes and they bring me fresh, exciting and new skincare.

img_20161002_125423429

So the Libbie Club is their Boutique where they sell high end full sized products and as a Libbie I take the offers and share them around friends, family and fellow skincare and beauty junkies …and that is it really!

You get to really learn about the products and what makes that individual item special, sometimes an insight from the brand as to what makes it tick and I love that sort of thing. I love learning about my skincare and what is in it.

If you convert a sale (you can make a purchase yourself if not) then you get the next month’s box free to review and share and that is basically how it all works. Of course you need to be putting some effort into this and sharing the word but I find everyone in the LC very warm and happy to help with any problems.

img_20161002_125736705

Sophie our Chief Libbie is very approachable, warm and helpful and she is all hands on deck everywhere! She must get it crazy some days lol!

A word on the products. Anything I have had from the Libbie Club has always been really good quality. There is a lean towards natural, organic, cruelty free products and that suits me just fine. I think people are learning a lot more online that these products are the best way to go.

So that is it… simple, easy to do and if you do it right it will reward you back. There is no hard sell here but knowing your products and being able to answer questions gives others who are buying confidence in the products which I think helps a lot.

img_20161002_125821664

There is a small deposit to pay on your first box but the box is always worth a lot more than that, of course months and value vary but once you have paid this and converted a sale then your next box is free and so forth…

I have truly loved trying all the products that have been sent to me by the Libbie Club and I have found some remarkable products that are now staples in my make up & skincare stash.

If you want to take a look at the Libbie Club or some of it’s offers you can find it all here

Nizz Cosmetics Lustre Lipstick in Nude Rose

 

Hello fellow beauty addicts,

I hope you are all well 🙂

Nizz is a relatively new brand on the beauty market and I am delighted to get one of their vegetarian lipsticks to try!

Hypo-Allergenic, Fair Trade & Paraben Free this lipstick has an awful lot going for it ..

IMG_20160802_145601812

I find a good quality lip conditioning lippie pretty hard to find these days. A lot seem to be pretty much the same bland mix which is ok but to get something luxurious, vegetarian and with an incredible lustre is a win, win, win ..if you get very dry lips in winter this would be a perfect blend for anyone who suffers from dry lips!

IMG_20160802_141012744

These are luxury lipsticks made with fair trade butters, oils and waxes and the result is a delicious  buttery lipstick that glides gently over the lips delivering a highly pigment lustre and it just feels so beautiful on the lips.

IMG_20160805_133102466

 

The shade is Rose Nude and it really is a stunning lipstick in so many ways .. you can check out the 3 nude shades here on my Libbie Club page and check out this month’s Libbie offers and there is free postage over £30!

New CID Cosmetics i-smoulder Smokey Eye Pencil and Shadow

Hello everyone,

I have recently been trying out this New-Cid Smokey Eye Pencil and shadow and to be honest now I have picked it up I find it hard to put it down!

It is so fast and handy and takes up no space at all to carry round with me and it near enough gives me a total eye look on it’s own …

IMG_20160731_143729348

I just run the powder end over my eye, use my ring finger to dab it about a bit .. add some highlighter to my brow, some mascara and I am good to go .. it saves me so much time and give me a great daytime look.

The shade I have is ember and it is totally wearable for daytime or you can really smoke it out for the evening .. just flip it round and you have your eyeliner to match right there and primed to go.

rsz_img_20160717_135343592

I have to be honest and thought it was pretty much just ok to look at but when I got it on my eyes it really came into it’s own, added my mascara and have been very impressed ever since!

Now I pick it up every time as it is fool proof fast and stays put so well, I loves it.

Have you tried the dual ended eye products yet?

IMG_20160731_143854827

Once tried never forgotten!!

You can get them here on my Libbie Club page and at the moment there is a free travel sized Bee Good Cleanser with every order bit.ly/1G9s5LD

That’s it for now folks
