£10 Makeup Challenge Essence cosmetics are to express who you are with style, confidence and fun! They say NO to animal testing and Yes to quality which is always a plus!
with a huge range of great makeup at super affordable prices..

Essence asked me to do a £10 makeup challenge, knowing how affordable the makeup is, I knew that i would be-able to accept this challenge, so these are the items i picked for a total of £9.51!!!
They are:
Get Big Lashes Volume Mascara- £2.21
Lipstick 44 Almost Famous - £1.99
Liquid Ink Eyeliner - £2.79
Silky Touch Blush Life's A Cherry - £2.44

These makeup items are great!
I picked reds/dark pinks because I seem to always wear red/dark pink all of the time, but also i thought it is a great combination for Autumn/Winter..
The Get big lashes volume mascara is great for those who want natural but long looking lashes with no clumps, it is also super affordable, for the price of a average mascara you could get a few of these and still look good!
The Lipstick in Almost famous is such a pretty red, but it is also a smooth/moisturising lipstick which is great! & for only £1.99 you cant really go wrong..

The liquid ink eyeliner, is my favourite item out of all of the range! I love love love this eyeliner, so far the best liquid eyeliner i currently have, As repeated many of times, I can never go out without a cat eye/flick.. but i sometimes hate how long it takes, or how tricky it can be using a liquid liner..
but with this liner, it is super easy to apply and get both eyes looking pretty much the same! and only for £2.79 is such a bargain.. and it stays on all day! defiantly recommend this liquid liner.

The silky touch blush in Life's a cherry is a pretty shimmery pink (with a pretty pattern) is great for anyone, to get a fresh looking complexion which lasts pretty much all day (depending how much you apply) for only £2.44 you cant go wrong.

Trying out all of the Essence's makeup, I found out that you can still look & feel great with spending little on makeup,
Thank-you Essence for sending me these lovely goodies,
Had so much fun!
Thank-you for reading,
Hope your having a great evening,
Love Gem

w7 review

Hello lovelies, I was woken up this morning, to a gorgeous package from w7, this is what I received:
.Bronze queen, £6.95 .Groovy curls £5.99 .Prime & glow £5.99 .Kiss chase £4.95
The first thing i looked at opening the package was the bronze queen eyeshadow pallet, anything with bronze...must have, you get 5 gorgeous matte shades, 2 added shimmer shades, a dual ended brush applicator is also included which is an added bonus! They're beautiful shades, apply so easily, although i did use my every day eyeshadow brush, they stayed on my eyes pretty much all day (still on whilst typing this)
How pretty is the eyelash curler, my favourite colour!  They do exactly what they're supposed to do,  They shape lashes to perfection adding illusion of length, they also have a steady finger grip, so easy to hold whilst curling your beautiful lashes :)
The prime & glow illuminating primer looks so gorgeous! You basically apply a small amount under your foundation to give your skin a …

BlanX teeth whitening review BlanX is a intensive whitening treatment for your teeth(no peroxide).
It has micro-crystals, it binds enamel of your teeth during regular brushing, creating a barrier that blocks the causes of yellowing.. Its ingredient lasts all day and then is activated by the light which then destroys dirt molecules on your teeth and then naturally whitens teeth... (super cool)

I dont have yellow teeth, but they went as white as i wanted them to be, so BlanX super kindly sent me two different treatments they were:
.BlanX white shock 50ml + LED accelerator with actilux (£7.50 in boots)
.BlanX white shock Treatment 30ml + LED bite with actilux (£15.99 in boots)

The BlanX white shock 50ml with LED accelerator with actilux stays on your teeth throughout the day it then reacts  to everyday light to whiten your teeth naturally... this contains a LED accelerator which then boosts whitening process/action of the actilux..
I feel that this is super handy if your going to stay ov…


Hey lovelies,
This is the November GlossyBox and I have mixed reviews about it but firstly here's what I received:
❤Sport fx brush rrp £10.99
❤Modellauncher bronzer rrp £16.50
❤Rodial Glamolash mascara rrp £24
❤Boots charcoal sheet mask rrp £2.50
The packaging is on point, cute, stylish and I'm keeping this box to store some of my makeup items in.

As this was my first ever GlossyBox I was excpecting some of the items to be abit better, its amazing for value but for what I like not as much,
I'm currently testing out the Model launcher safari bronzer which I'm actually liking right now, it gives you that definition you want.
I'm also currently using the Rodial glamolash mascara which I'm liking as well, instead of using my benefit mascara everyday I've decided to use this and it gives pretty much the same look just doesn't last as long.
The sport fx brush doesn't really appeal to me but I will give it a go somepoint and see how it goes and I can'…
