Yoso Heated Eyelash Curler

I am sure that everyone loves an eyelash curler, it is something so simple but can make a complete change to your look. However let me introduce you to a whole new level, the Yoso Heater Lash Curler*. When I first heard about this I was dying to give it a try as I have very straight lashes, so using a normal curler doesn't last very long. Here is how I got on.
www.beautycrowd.com/products/yoso-lash £15.99
The Yoso heater eyelash curler looks very simple and easy to use, however I wanted to be very careful as putting a hot object near your eyes seems quite dangerous. Beauty Crowd have put a tutorial on their YouTube channel showing how to use it which was very helpful. First of all you turn the device on and wait a minute for it to heat up, there is a little indicator which shows you when its ready. The Yoso curler has a hot side which you use to curl your lashes upwards. There is also a smaller part on the top which gets hot so you can reach the smaller lashes nearer the lid. Once you have done this you apply a layer of mascara, curl them again and use the comb on the other side to separate the lashes.
 I know that a lot of people have problems with curling their lashes with a manual curler or mascara. I have very straight lashes but they do hold a curl, not the best but it's nothing to complain about. However if you find that your lashes just don't hold a curl this product might be something you want to try. 
In my opinion using the Yoso lash curler is not as simple as using a normal curler and does add on about 5 minutes to your make up routine. Therefore I would only use it for a special occasion when I need to make more of an effort and I want my lash curl to last all night. The results were very good, it gave my lashes a nice curl which lasted all day. I like the idea of the product, it is very different and innovative but I don't think the heat is good to use everyday. As heat can damage the hair on your head I am sure it can damage eyelashes too but it makes a nice change every once and a while. I do also think it is very good value for money and definitely won't break the bank so is a great addition to your dressing table if you have stubborn lashes.

NV Cosmetics lipsticks

NV Colour Cosmetics* is a company you may not have heard of but they are on the up and you definitely will want to try them soon. A few months ago I was sent 2 lipsticks and a lip crayon to try out.
The lip products I received are all colours I love and are very easily wearable. The dark purple lipstick is a dupe for Mac Rebel, I wrote a post comparing them here. The formula's are smooth, apply very well and are extremely pigmented. The crayon is very moisturizing and more glossy than the lipsticks which are more matte. They last a few hours on the lips which in my opinion isn't bad at all for the price.
NV Watermelon Lip Crayon £5.00
The lip crayon glides across the lips nicely leaving a slash of cool toned bright pink. The shiney finish that it leaves makes it a very easy product as is like having a lipstick and gloss in one. This pink is perfect for spring/summer!
NV Siren Lipstick £6.00
This red lipstick from NV is my absolute perfect red shade. It's slightly warm, orange toned and really compliments my skin tone. The lipstick again is nice to apply, makes your lips stand out and isn't at all drying. 
NV Fever Lipstick £6.00
As I said above this lipstick is a dupe for Rebel which is one of my favourite mac shades. This is a great cheaper alternative if you want to brave the very dark berry lip but don't want to splash out on Mac's prices. I think this is a nice autumn shade and really makes brown eyes stand out!

If you haven't tried NV Cosmetics yet I would 100% recommend them for great products at a very reasonable price. You can check out all their products here.

Lots of love

P.S. I haven't re-dyed my hair pink, these photo's were taken months ago!

Sunkissed Rapid One Hour Tan Mousse

I was so excited to received an email from Sunkissed asking whether I wanted to try out their brand new Rapid Tan Mousse* as they are my favourite fake tan brand ever! I love their original tanning mouse and I have been waiting for them to bring out a hour one tan for ages now. So here is how I got on.
Sunkissed rapid tan
www.sunkissedbronzing.co.uk/catalog/fake-tan/sunkissed-rapid-tan-mousse-150ml £4.99
No Tan (daylight no flash) 
After tan application (daylight no flash)
After 1 hour development (flash) 
After 4 hours development (flash)
Tan line
I received the tan in their medium shade. Sunkissed rapid tan promises to develop in 1 hour which is super quick for a fake tan and the longer you leave it before showering, the darker it goes. First impressions were that the colour is perfect for me when applied, smells really good like their original tan and the colour developed well in the hour. I did leave it for 4 hours and then showered it off, the tan washed off evenly and doesn't look streaky one bit.
After shower
Please bare in mind that the photo's above were taken at night therefore I had to use flash. In my opinion this makes the tan look a lot darker and more orange than it actually is. I took another photo, see below, to show what the tan looks like the next morning in daylight.

I would say that it did give me a really nice healthy bronzed look however I love a really dark tan and kind of preferred the colour I was before I washed it off, which was very dark (I guess that's the Essex in me). I think I would definitely buy this tan again as I love the convenience of it but I would purchase the dark tan as the medium tan is probably better for very pale people. I think this is the perfect product if you are going out and in a rush, you don't want to go out looking pale but need a quick fake tan which leaves a nice colour. 
The next day (daylight no flash)
Before and after tan (both daylight no flash)
Sunkissed tans are so easy to apply with a mit, smell great and are very cheap! Both the original and 1 hour are brilliant value for money and I cannot wait to purchase the darker shade! Check out the range here www.sunkissedbronzing.co.uk.

Lots of love

P.S. Are you a lover of fake tan or is it too much effort?

Sleek Hair Couture One Piece Clip-In

As you may have seen over the past few weeks I am trying to find the perfect extensions for my hair. Ever since I have been dying it blonde it has lacked thickness and just doesn't look very full anymore. I love being blonde so instead of going back to my natural hair colour, I have tried out a few different extensions to give my hair back it's magic. My most latest find has been a One Piece clip-in weft from Sleek*.
www.sleek.co.uk/products/HC1CLIP20 Shade 613 £19.99
Now I am just going to quickly note that unfornately this doesn't match my hair, the shade is fine however the tone is a bit too yellow. I have yet to tone it down but I am sure it is easily done with purple shampoo. However I will be reviewing it for you anyways as I think it is a great product. As it is just one simple weft it makes applying and wearing extensions a lot easier but still adds fullness. This hair extension has 4 wefts in one, all attached neatly together with no bumps but firm clips. There is a lot of hair on this extension but it doesn't feel big, bulky or heavy. I did wear it around the house and it stays in all day, adds a lot of hair and doesn't full out. 
One down side is that the hair is artificial so doesn't look as good as real hair but I don't think anyone could ever tell the difference once it's blended in and it's great value for the price. Remy hair would cost a hell of a lot more, so you can't really go wrong for £20. I think this one piece weft is a brilliant quick fix of lack of volume for a night out or special occasion, the style is gorgeous and really adds a lot of glamour to boring hair. I cannot wait until this matches my hair and I can start wearing it as it's so easy!

Lip Voltage The Powerhouse

Ever since the explosion of Kylie Jenner selfie's I know a lot of people, including myself, have been incredibly envious of her plump lips. Now whether they are real or fake, all I have thought is that I need them in my life. I have tried a few techniques to make my lips appear larger without injections, one being a new lipgloss called Lip Voltage The Powerhouse*. 
www.wrinkleregime.com/products8.php?ProductID=11 £25
There are many lip plumping glosses out there, so cosmetic company Dreamweave and Co have tried to do something innovative by combining 3 ingredients to create a product which will give unbelievable volume while making your lips appear fuller, smoother and hydrated. Lip Voltage is the best I have tried, although it did come at a price and no I am not talking about the cost.
After applying the gloss I was amazed by the results, my lips looked massive and I loved them so much. However to achieve this it was quite painful, to say the least. The tingling sensation is very intense and your lips do feel like they are burning. It's hard to say whether other people will find this a horrible feeling as everyone has different pain thresholds. My boyfriends brother tried it, he applied loads, and he was crying it hurt him so much. After about 10 minutes he had to wipe it off and put ice on his lips, it was quite funny (sorry Zach). I on the other hand applied one to two coats to my lips and massaged around my cupids bow like it tells you to, yes it was unpleasant but I was able to deal with the pain. It does promise to last 24 hours which I don't agree with but unlike most lip plumping glosses which last less than an hour, it did last for quite a few hours. When it comes to the actual gloss element, it is a good formula which glides across your lips easily. They feel soft and smoothed out, and in my opinion fine lines appear reduced. 

Top - before     Bottom - after
Top - before     Bottom - after
This gloss is priced at £25, which I don't think is too much money and I probably would pay that amount for it. I understand that a lot of people will think it's a lot of money for a lipgloss but most high end brands will charge that amount for their lip products and implants would cost a hell of a lot more. 

Lots of love
