Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick Review & Swatches

Jeffree Star Beauty Bay

If you read last weeks Jeffree Star Cosmetics blog post all about the Beauty Killer Palette you will already know I placed a rather large Beauty Bay order so I could try out some of the brands most hyped products! Number one on my list was the Velour Liquid Lipsticks! As you know if you are a long time reader I LOVE liquid lipsticks, my favourites being the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, so I was very excited to try out another alternative! I ordered three different colours which are all slightly different finishes and from different collections.

GHD Advanced Split End Therapy

We have both been avid fans of GHD straighteners for many years and when my last pair, a very pretty limited edition purple pair, gave up the ghost recently I knew that I wasn't going to settle for anything less. I shopped around and ordered a new pair from Look Fantastic (currently £20  off at £109). They also were offering a free GHD Advanced Split End Therapy treatment with any GHD purchase (RRP £20).
I am not new to heat protectant products and usually use the VO5 or Batiste spray versions but I am always interested in anything that promises to solve my split end issues so I was excited to try it. Suggesting that it is 'Suitable for all hair types, you can experience deeply nourished, conditioned and hydrated tresses with a revived radiance and enhanced shine that lasts for up to ten washes' I was sold!
GHD Advanced Split End Therapy is a 'lightweight cream activated by the heat of your styling tool to prevent further breakage and repair damaged ends'. Used while your hair is still damp you take a small amount of the product into your hands and massage through the hair down to the ends. Then dry as normal and style with your straighteners.

The cream left my hair feeling really very soft and conditioned. I was a little concerned that it would make my hair feel a bit oily but it just left it feeling hydrated and smooth. As well as leaving my hair seemingly split end free the scent stays with you and you can occasionally catch a whiff as you turn your head! Lovely!
Not being someone who spends a lot on haircare I know that I would probably not have gone out and bought this product so its great that I had the opportunity to try it for free. However, now that I have tried it I would most definitely repurchase it!
Love Elle x
Have you tried the GHD Advanced Split End Therapy or do you have any more suggestions for split end treatments?

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette Update - Now Available In The UK!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette Review

We feel very honoured to have gotten our hands on not one but TWO of the highly sought after Too Faced Sweet Peach Palettes during our visit to Florida in early May 2016 and have been using them religiously ever since. However, getting hold of them was not an easy task! We literally scoured every Sephora and Ulta for miles! We were told by Sephora that they had only taken delivery of a handful of palettes and they had immediately sold out. One Ulta we visited said although they were sold out they had regular deliveries of a variety of products and maybe, just maybe, they would get some in the delivery the following day. We did not hold out much hope. The following morning we called the store and received the delightful news that they had taken delivery of TWO of the coveted palettes! They promised to put them on hold for us and we raced through to get them! We were not disappointed!

The good news is, now that Debenhams have finally started to stock the palette in the UK EVERYONE can get their hands on one! YAY!

Best Of 2016 - The Beauty Edit

2016 was another great year for beauty and we must admit that we have lusted after a lot of beautiful products in the last 12 months. Rather than bombard you with approximately 1000 things we have fallen in love with we put our heads together and came up with a much more manageable list, so in no particular order, here goes:
