The Topshop Edit - March Wish List

Topshop isn't a retailer I shop at regularly because, let's be honest I'm too poor to shop there! Saying that, their Joni and Jamie Jeans are amazing and I'm definitely willing to splurge on their denim.

Here are some gorgeous pieces I have my eye on, I think you'll notice a trend here?

The Weekly Top Five #10

Well, what a week it has been! I started a new job on Monday as a copywriter for a well-known retailer and on Wednesday I fell over and ended up in A&E. Great first week to kick off my career right? So I have a badly sprained ankle and a uber fashionable limp - ouch. I'm in the swing of things with blogging (finally) and this will be my third post this week which hasn't happened in years. 
To round of the week, I'm bringing you a weekly top five.

Pokemon Go
Gen 2 has finally been released and the spark of Pokemon Go has been reignited (I didn't really stop playing so much) and I've been up and about searching for new Pokemon and it's so much fun! Although I haven't been able to play with my sprained ankle...

Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit, Pose
I haven't tried Kylie Lip Kit's but I'm all for the affordable £6.99 version from Barry M. They are pretty amazing too! I definitely need to pick up more shades.

Pink Zingo Fruit Infusing Water Bottle*
I'm a huge water drinker and I love squeezing lemon into my water. Handy that this bottle from Root 7 has an inbuilt infuser. I love the colour of the bottle too, so gorgeous!

Pink Stripe Bardot Long Sleeve Shirt
You'll rarely catch me in anything else than a bardot top. New Look are slaying at the moment and I picked up this gorgeous pink shirt after buying the blue version. I'm obsessed!

Pinku Marble Phone Case*
Phone cases are an addiction for me and I love accessorising and protecting my phone. I'm being a stereotypical blogger with this marble case from Pinku. It also has my initials on, too cute! 

Organised Mess - How Your Horoscope Organises You

I'm one of those people that love flicking through Horoscopes and finding what traits I have, what the future will hold for me - somehow they just always find a way to make it sound so real. The guys at Furniture at Work have compiled an infographic to see how your horoscope organises you. I'm a Sagittarius and I must admit I probably need to throw a few things out...

My Favourite Beauty Trends

I'm a sucker for trends, especially within the beauty industry. If something new is released I have to have it. Today I'm sharing with you a couple of my favourite new beauty trends.
Pink and red eyeshadow have been a standout in eyeshadow palette recently. I love the contrast of the shades with my blue eyes, I'm a sucker for smoky eyes too. My favourite eyeshadow palette of the moment definitely has to be Anastasia's Modern Renaissance, the shades are stunning!
Next up is highlighted skin, I love the wet look and so many brands have released highlight pans/palettes. Makeup Revolution has some amazing highlighters at even better prices. I really want to splurge on ABH Nicole Gurriero Glow Kit or the Moonchild palette. So many decisions!
Perfectly manicured nails can add so much to an outfit and one of my favourite trends is nude, beige or greige nails. They look so classic and sophisticated. If it does start to chip of it's easily hidden too, win! Ellison's have released an eBook with Essie with their favourite trends and Essie have so many pretty nail polishes that I definitely need! You can buy Essie Nail Polish wholesale from Ellisons for cheaper than RRP.

Removeil Face Cloth | Review

There's a trend at the moment where women are using cloths to remove their make-up with only water added, crazy right? I've been testing Removeil's* version, does it work?

Yes, yes it does! You simply wet the cloth and run it over your face and you will see your make-up erased. 

Here's what Removeil say: 

"Silver fibre is made by bonding 99,9% pure metallic silver to the surface of a textile fiber. When in contact with water, silver activates its power and releases ions, which kill bacteria and germs causing acne and other unpleasant skin conditions. Silver affects skin in several positive ways, helping to hinder imperfections and stimulate microcirculation while doing a gentle exfoliation, brightening up the skin. "

It gently exfoliates the skin while removing all traces of make-up. I like to use it as the first part of my routine to wipe away the majority of my make-up. 

Although it claims to remove waterproof make-up, it doesn't take off my stubborn waterproof mascara. 

I wouldn't use this cloth as my only cleanse as I wear a lot of make-up. It definitely helps me do my routine a lot quicker, though!

To clean the Removeil you simply use soap and hot water, it's recommended that it goes into the wash every month to give it a deep clean. 

It costs £24.99 which I think is very steep considering there are other more affordable microfibre cleansing cloths on the market. It lasts up to six months before you should replace it.

Makeup Revolution Medium Brow Palette - Medium to Dark | Review

Makeup Revolution are one of my favourite brands and they have so many amazing products. Today I'm sharing with you one of my favourite products, their Medium Brow Palette - Medium to Dark.

Housed in their classic black packaging the brow kit features four brow shades, two waxes, a concealer, a highlighter, tweezers, a pencil and two brow brushes. It has everything you need to tame and perfect your eyebrows.

Three of the brow shades are cool-toned and one is warm-toned. Personally, I prefer cooler shades on my brows and these shades are perfect, I can mix and match to create my perfect shade.

I don't use the concealer but it would be perfect if you wanted to carve out your brows. I love the added extra with the highlighter - makes it easy to highlight under the brow bone.

I would be lying if I said the brow pencil, tweezers and brushes are handy because I have no idea where they are and just use my own (haha, anyone else?!). If you're traveling those extras would definitely come in handy!

It retails for an affordable £7.99 and comes in Light to Medium too.

Collection Primed & Ready Invisible Setting Powder | Review

Collection Cosmetics has a great range of products and their Primed & Ready Invisible Setting Powder really intrigued me so I had to try it!

Housed in a sturdy black casing with a clear lid, the powder retails for an 
affordable £3.99. 

With Witch Hazel its purpose is to help clear your skin while using the product. 
Because I suffer from breakouts quite regular I can't say if it does help clear breakouts or not. 

The powder itself is finely milled and sets down my base perfectly. It isn't cakey and it doesn't look powdery on the skin, it's also perfect for touchups. 

If you're pale like me then you'll be pleased to hear it doesn't make me orange, wahey! So many drugstore powders do it can be hard to find one that doesn't.

I'd definitely recommend this product, it's amazing considering the purse-friendly price.

Kiss Beautiful Brow Kit - Medium Brown | Review

Brows are such an important part of my routine I can't get enough of trying brow products.

Lately, I've been using Kiss's Beautiful Brow Kit* in Medium Brown and it's such a fab little kit.

Housed in a sturdy plastic packaging are two brow shades - a cool brown and a warm brown, highlight, wax, a little brush, spoolie, stencils and a brow razor.

The cool-toned brown is perfect for my brows as I love dark contrasting brows with my silver hair. The shades are pigmented and look natural on the brow hairs.

I love that the kit comes with a highlight shade perfect for popping under the brow. I also love the addition of a brow razor as I find them so much easier than plucking.

If you're after a new kit I'd definitely check out this one from Kiss Cosmetics. I'd love to try more from the brand!
