Brand Overview: Sara Hill Makeup

Hey Beauties! Sometimes i think i might be a magpie as all things shiny just seem to appeal to me and with the Sara Hill Makeup range that’s no different. Sara Hill Makeup is inspired by fashion, club kids, pop culture & chain smoking aunties, Sara Hill Make-up is non-conformist, expert beauty that doesn’t patronise, apologise or explain. I love this idea because it’s all what i think makeup should be about although i dont agree with the whole chain smoking aunties thing Sara Hill Makeup launches after 5 years in creation. Born from a desire to ‘free the freckle’ by…

Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser and Body Lotion Review

Elemis is set to launch this great product for summer, something i am quite excited about. If you are a regular reader you will know im not the type of person to use a fake tan but i find this product gives you a really natural tanned look over a period of time as it is a gradual bronzing moisturizer/body lotion. The moisturiser is a person favourite as i find that my face is often paler than the rest of my body which is rather weird but it happens. The moisturiser contains Vegetan which is an ingredient that builds a…

Hey Beauties!  As all you regular readers will know that i am obsessed with Illamasqua, they are such an amazing brand not only for their products but also the way they value their customers and loyal fans of the brand something i don’t see a lot of other brands doing.
