Here is a summary of this months blog posts! Not just mine, but some from blogs I love – sharing is caring!
Friday will mark a month since my blog was born! (Just to make it sound more dramatic and slightly strange…) I am so excited. This journey so far has been amazing, I enjoy writing so much, and would like to thank everybody who has followed me or interacted with me – every comment, like and follow means so much. If I didn’t have any followers, I would still write because I love it, but you are all so encouraging. BIG LOVE!
My Blog Posts
I decided to start my blog with a review, allowing me to start on developing my writing style. I reviewed my everyday foundation – one of the most important parts in my makeup routine.
Love Me Beauty is a subscription service – kind of like Birchbox or Glossybox to name a couple more if you’ve heard of those. The only difference is that you get to choose what you are sent from their Boutique. I love this subscription so much, it’s like a weekly present to myself!
I received my first Love Me Beauty bag in June, and even though the review was written in July, I thought it would still be interesting to some people to see what kind of things the subscription offers. My June bag contained products from Cailyn cosmetics, Nuxe and Tangle Teezer.
I discovered this Seventeen blush accidentally, and I’m not a big blusher fan, but it very pleasantly surprised me, and it’s extremely affordable.
I review my two Seventeen concealers, Phwoarr Paint and Skin Wow! concealer. One is good and the other is bad and ugly!
This is my unboxing (or should I say ‘un-bagging’) of my July Love Me Beauty subscription bag. This time I received products from Pixi by Petra and Caudalie.
I was nominated to complete this tag – find some more out about me, and discover some of my favourite fellow bloggers.
Here are the products that made it into my washbag when I made a trip to the city. There are products from Nivea, The Body Shop, Benefit, Pixi, Clinique and Nuxe.
My July bag from Love Me Beauty gets a full review – product by product!
My Favourite Blog Posts
1. On My Lips by Just Jinxy
Just Jinxy has such a gorgeous blog. Beauty, makeup and glorious photography – all in one place. This post shows some Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor swatches (among others from Etude House and The Face Shop) and now I really want to buy some…
2. Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette by KawaiiPeachGrl
I love Makeup Revolution – their products are so affordable and good quality for what you are spending. I haven’t tried many of their palettes yet so I’m always happy to see some swatches of some more so I can see if I want to add them to my ‘to buy’ list. KawaiiPeachGrl gives a lot of detail about each shade which is so helpful!
3. My Top 5 Drugstore Makeup Brands by MakeupFaves
This was so handy for me as I hadn’t actually heard of all the brands here, but they are all easily bought here in the UK and I always love to find new stuff! Plus their number 1 brand is Makeup Revolution so I think we’re soulmates…
4. Makeup Tutorial + Chat by Emily Rose
I love Emily’s writing style, and she’s so lovely too! She gives a detailed makeup tutorial after telling a story of a makeup mishap which we can all relate to. The look she creates is absolutely beautiful – she is well worth checking out!
5. Friday Coffee #1 by Madison Violet
I love the format of these posts (Friday Coffee #2 was the post I actually read first), it’s so personal and I love the way Madison Violet writes. I would love to do a post at some point where I make some goals and talk about the TV shows I’m obsessing over etc.
