Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge review

After mentioning in my recent beauty wishlist post (click here to view that) I mentioned how I’m lusting over the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge so much so I decided to finally buy it. I have loved the RT brushes for a flawless application and with the sponge promising the same results I was eager to give it a go! I gave up using sponges beforehand because they absorbed more product than I ended up using on my face but they were cheap ones and with the beauty blenders and alike taking the beauty industry by storm I had to get one from my fav gals from Pixiwoo; Sam and Nic Chapman.

Laura Mercier foundation primer review

I was introduced to the Laura Mercier foundation primer in my first beauty box a few months back! This was my first ever primer and I loved it from the start, so much so I had to repurchase it again, and then again after I finished my first full sized tube from the Latest in Beauty beauty box. See why the Laura Mercier foundation primer is my new favourite makeup step!

My controversial uni experience

This is definitely a much more personal post than my usual but a topic I have a real opinion about. I write this after completing my second year, two thirds completed in about £30,000 so far. I had always wanted to go to Uni, but on reflection I’m not too sure if this was because I wanted too or because of the expectation of going to Uni from College is the expected. I remember being in my tutor group and those not going through UCAS were told not to bother coming in as what we’ll do is pointless to them, so you were blacklisted as a result. This pressure to continue studies was one definitely pushed on everyone and I believed if I didn’t go, I’d be a let down and an outcast.

H&M nude eye shadow palette review

Whilst H&M was having 20% off for students with the UNiDAYS app, I just couldn’t resist a mini haul! I wasn’t going to blog about what I got but I picked up a H&M nude eye shadow as I was looking at their make-up and something urged me to put it in my basket along with an eye shadow brush to accompany my new buy. The H&M nude eye shadow palette jumped out at me as a really nice nude set of soft shimmer colours, not too full on, but perfect for every day wear. I am a sucker for nude make-up and so I decided to give it a try at only £3.99, minus the 20% off. Total bargain, but would it be any good? You’ll be pleasantly surprised if you keep reading!
