Another Beauty Haul | ABH, Huda Beauty, and The Ordinary

Hello everyone, I'm back with yet another haul post today, ranging from single eyeshadows to interesting new skincare. I have quite a lot to share with you all, so I'll keep this part short and sweet!

January 2017 Favourites

Hello! Welcome back to za blushing giraffe, with a slightly late favourites post. So if you read my Jan chatty post you'll know this last month has been the busiest start to the year I have ever had. PGCE year ain't a walk in the park, thats for sure haha. So this post I'm gonna be sharing, as usual, the products that have been making me that little bit happier as the month flew by, leggggggo!

Starting with the base, I have been loving the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation in shade 7 (£32.00), which is a gorgeous light/medium coverage very glowy foundation. It's super quick to apply because I literally blend in a little with my fingers and I'm done in 20 seconds flat. I LOVE IT. You get 40ml and the coverage is pretty buildable, which I do appreciate a lot for the days I may need a bit more coverage (and on the days I actually have the time to add some more too haha!). I didn't love the concealer, but this foundation is a firm favourite.

Review | NARS Sheer Glow in Stomboli and NARS ADLW in Stromboli

NARS Sheer Glow in Stomboli and NARS ADLW in Stromboli review and swatch

Hello! Its been a while since I've written a foundation review, so to make up for it, I thought I would give you guys two reviews in one post. I have owned both of these foundations for quite a while now, but the sheer glow review has been a LOOOONG time coming, because it has been an absolute favourite for over two years! So we'll start with that base and then move on to the All Day Luminous Weightless foundation, with a brief comparison at the end. This is going to be somewhat of a long post, so I recommend grabbing a snack before proceeding.

Colourpop Series | Just Peachy Trio Review

Hello everyone! Back with another colourpop post, and this time I'm focusing on one of their cute value trios - Just Peachy ($15.00). They currently have free international delivery over $50 - check out this post if you're interested in the ordering process and customs. If you were to buy this kit, you'd save a total of $3, which isn't much..but savings when you're already having to pay customs, well every little helps haha. Now when they launched all their peachy shades, I was glued to their website with this emoji reflecting back at the screen: 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍. BUT I had JUST ordered a bunch of things in the haul I linked above, so could I justify another $50 order, jobless, as a trainee teacher? Nooooope. I refrained with a heavy heart and left it be, till a couple of weeks later when they had the free international delivery offer on again and lo and behold they had just put together this it was just meant to be hehe.

January 2017 Catchup | Cross-phase

Hello hello everyone, how are you all doing? I can't believe it's already the 4th of February and I'm only just now getting around to typing up this post (but I'll probably edit the date back in a few days and it'll go under the January section of this year anyway haha).
