Why I Stopped Buying Beauty Boxes

Beauty Boxes

Hi guys, 

This is in no way a bitch or a moan, its simply my thoughts and opinions on this trend. As you know, there are a million beauty boxes out there now with Look Fantastic, Birch Box and Glossy Box being the most well-known. Since their launch we have seen countless monthly offerings including ones that aren’t necessarily beauty based such as The Melt Crowd (candle subscription service), Graze (snack box), Ink Drops (stationary), Pink Parcel (period box), Lip Monthly (lip products) and The Vegan Kind (vegan products). All very good actually!. There are also some pretty cool collaborations between the queen of skincare Caroline Hirons (£175) and Cult Beauty or Anna and Lily's (sold out) colab but I am still left bemused by beauty boxes.

I used to be an avid Glossy Box subscriber but I felt I was paying for something that was just thrown together with no thought put in whatsoever. Maybe that's changed now, but I had enough after a year. At first all of the products were deluxe samples of some fantastic brands but after a few months, it all went downhill and I felt it was cheap products in tiny sample form. I then moved onto Look Fantastic, again, everything was great, their monthly offerings were more than welcome and then it went downhill. I have only ordered Birch Box once, it was ok, nothing to rave about but it made me mad that these companies were receiving thousands of subscribers per month and then downgrading the products which isn't fair. 

The thing with beauty boxes is you have to be somewhat of a gambler as you never know what will be coming each month. Sometime's they give a sneak peak which is always fun. I used to like the not knowing aspect but I was left bemused some months. I understand there are dips and troughs, this is to be expected, but the bad outweighed the good in the end which led me to cancel all of my subscriptions. I now see the odd great one from LF, GB or BB so I buy it for that month only if they offer it, but I wouldn't subscribe to them anymore. I know not all subscriptions are the same and some are better than others, especially some of the ones mentioned above, but as for beauty boxes, I think I’m done.

I do love the idea of the collaboration boxes though, but if you ain't fast your last baby, as they sell out pretty quickly. Caroline's one is still in stock but if you dont have £175 then your pretty much screwed. I know these ones can be ridiculously expensive but when you look at the products you are receiving, it works out cheaper in the long run as most of them are deluxe samples or full sized products. Don't know if I would be rushing out to spend £175 bucks on this though, could think of many more things I would buy with that kind of money.

Where do you stand with the whole Beauty Box Monthly subscription service?
Is it a waste of money?
Do you like the products each month?
Do you prefer non beauty based boxes?

Disappointing Beauty

Hi guys, 

After reading Allure of a Girl's guest post on Twenty Something Meltdown, I decided to carry out this blogpost. as it’s nice to take a break from talking up the great products and discuss the ones that have disappointed me. I did one of these a few years ago and I still stick by my views on those items but I have some more to throw into the mix. You can’t like everything and a lot of these products you are going to think, what the hell is she talking about, but it’s only my opinion. You may love some of these but we are going to have to agree to disagree I’m afraid as I thought they were pants.

I had high hopes for this little guy as everyone and their mother were raving about the Ruth Crilly launch so I was keen to get my hands on it and see what all the fuss was about. I hated this from the get go. I didn’t like the texture of my hair afterwards and I didn’t like the fragrance either. I used this as I would any other dry shampoo, I held it away from my hair and sprayed onto my roots by sectioning my hair but it left my hair feeling sticky and unclean. I had slight volume but nothing worth raving about. This felt more like a hairspray rather than a dry shampoo so for that reason it gets a thumbs down from me.

I just couldn’t get to grips with this at all. It didn’t do anything for me and it didn’t keep my makeup in place nor did it "erase my pores". Not that I was expecting it to. Instead it left a film over my skin which didn’t feel natural and its texture was quite off putting when I began applying to my skin. 

These have been made for those of us who like to use our fingers to apply makeup. They are silicon tips which are supposed to feel skin like and smooth makeup on easily. I can wholeheartedly disagree. These do not help anything smooth on my face, infact they pull at the product which leaves it looking streaky and not applied properly. I used this to apply concealer before buffing out with a concealer brush but I had to go back in with the doe foot applicator as the product which pretty much non-existent. 

4. Eve Lom Cleanser (£40)
I really wanted to like this as it smelt fantastic and everyone raved about it. Vogue hailed it the "probably the best cleanser in the world" but I have to disagree. I liked how soft it made my skin feel (before the breakouts) and how it took off makeup, don’t get me wrong. I also adored the scent but as far as good skincare went, this was a nightmare. I was left with horrible spots all over my face. At first I thought the skin was purging (although I don’t agree with that statement) so I persisted but after a few weeks I had to stop as my skin was sore to the touch. As soon as I stopped using this, my skin started to heal and thankfully, its back to normal but I would never buy this again as my oily/sensitive skin hated it. Maybe this would be better on dry/normal skin though.

I really disliked this mascara. It done absolutely nothing for my lashes and left me with black rings round my eyes. I can handle a little seeping at the inner corners of my eyes which can easily be removed but this little guy smudged all over my lower lash line, above my eyes and at each corner. I looked like I had been punched in the face which is not a look I go for when wearing mascara, I can assure you. My eyelashes felt limp, there was no length,no separating, no curl and no volume. The only good thing was the fact that my lashes looked black at the roots but that’s not enough for me, I need a mascara to create some fabulous eyelashes not little black stumps!

I bought this off the back of many reviews online and I am gutted that it didn’t work on me. It took far too long to work into the skin, regardless of how much I used and left me with white streaks up and down my body. I also woke up with the worst smell coming from my skin when I wore this overnight after applying after a bath one night. The smell was disgusting. I can safely say this has never happened with any other body lotion, butter or cream I have used before going to sleep but this was horrible. I also didn’t like the smell it left throughout the day, I can’t quite explain it, but it was almost like a fusty smell, you know if you leave wet clothes for too long and they carry that lingering smell. I thought it actually was my clothes for a hot minute, but it wasn’t, it was this bloody cream. 

That’s all I have today guys. Just because I didn’t like these particular items doesn’t mean I hate the people or the rest of the products. I actually adore everything else that I have tried from Maybelline, Charlotte Tilbury and Zoella but I didn’t get on well with these at all. I haven't sampled anything else from Eve Lom, Magic Cosmetics or Colab but I will try some of their other products to see how I get on with them. Let me know in the comments if you disagree with any of my choices as I like to know how you got on with them too.

Blogger Annoyances | Email's

Blogger Emails

Hi guys, 

Do you receive numerous emails a day asking you for all kinds of favours with either no information or nothing in return? Well, I thought I would put together this blog post highlighting the different things that annoy me as a blogger. 

Don’t get me wrong, I am always grateful for the opportunities I get from blogging and this is in no way a rant about the problems of blogging, but I hate some of the stuff that goes along with it. If you want me to promote something, give me an indication as to what it is. If you want a shout out, tell me who you are, what it is you want me to talk about and not to sound crass, but what am I getting in return for it. I hate to do something for somebody and expect something in return, its not my style. I do things for others because I want to help them in any way I can but when it comes to blogging, you have to be a bit ruthless. 

If a company want a blog post then you have to charge for your time. As I said in my Can You Trust Bloggers post, you have to take the time to set up equipment for pictures, backgrounds, do a bit of research, write the post and promote it. This is a lot of work and you should be paid for it. What are the company getting out of this blog post? The answer is free promotion!

On too many occasions I have been asked to write a post for a company to promote whatever they are flogging at that time and when I ask what I get out of it they always say the same thing, "It’s not in the budget" or "we will put a link to your blog on our website". If you can’t take into consideration the time and effort I put into a blog post, then I’m sorry but the answer is no. If I haven’t tried something, how the hell can I promote it? Anyway, here are my top annoyances when it comes to emails.

1. "Can We Write A Post For You"
Can you piss off please?! This really gets on my tits. Please don’t email me asking me to allow someone else to write a blog post for me, pay me an undisclosed sum of money for the privilege and not even tell me what the post will be about? Why in God’s name would I want someone else to write my blog posts for me? When I ask for more details, they are always super secretive and will not budge. I said yes to one to find out some more information, turns out she was promoting a gambling website! Where on my blog do I talk about gambling? I happily declined her offer. Just a quick disclaimer in here, I have never allowed anyone to write a post for me unless it’s a guest post featuring some makeup looks, male skincare or fashion. These are things that fit well with my blog and things I do not personally talk about as I wouldn't know where to begin, so it’s great to help out fellow bloggers but as far as these companies are concerned, I can’t be dealing with it. 

2. Not Reading Your Blog
"I love the fashion posts on your blog" Erm, I don’t blog about fashion so it must have been someone else’s blog you read. This really irks me. If you haven’t taken the time to read my blog, don’t email me asking me to promote your fashion accessories, clothes, shoes etc. as I do not blog about that.

3. Buy Followers
I’m sure you get this all the time if you are a blogger. I tend to ignore them when they plaster all over my social media or email me. I have built my blog organically, it may not be huge and I may not have the biggest social media following but I enjoy blogging and don’t need to be hounded by these people. If you buy followers, then I’m sorry but I don’t agree with that. Surely it is better to start from the bottom and work your way up rather than have thousands of followers you didn’t earn!

4. Free Promotions
I have been asked a lot if I can send tweets out to get people excited about a new launch i.e. Drinks, Cocktail Ingredients, Smoking, Gambling, Giveaways, Fashion Accessories and it would be appreciated! Ha-ha.
It would be appreciated if you didn’t think my blog or social media platforms were a way for you to promote your company when you haven’t even said hello or introduced yourself. What a bloody cheek. I only promote products if I have bought it with my own money and I really do love them. If I have been lucky enough to be gifted with something, I will make it clear on my social media platforms that someone sent it to me but I will only promote if I like it and it has worked for me.

5. Generic Emails
Please don’t send me an email saying "Hello Blogger" or "Dear Blogger". If you want a favour or want me to do something, then you bloody well better know my name! 

6. Non Emails
Ok, this is random but I hate one sentence emails. Why is there only one sentence? What is your angle here? Tell me what it is, don’t send me a link and say "You will love this" or "This will be great for your blog". I’m sorry, but I aint clicking on anything when it’s been emailed over and no-one has the decency to say hello, give me an introduction to themselves and their company and not told me what the link takes me too or what they are promoting. If you don’t have time to write a proper email, I won’t have time to "read" it. 

7. Spam Mail
If I sign up for notifications, I dont want twenty a day. One per day or even three per week would be fab. I have unsubscribed and unfollowed bloggers in the past for this as it is so irritating. 

I know this seems a bit ranty but I hope you enjoyed it. These are the top seven issues when it comes to emails and being a blogger. Again, I am not dissing the professional companies out there who take the time to read your blog, make sure you are a good fit for their product and them send over a legible email but if you just want me to promote something I have never heard of, never used or don’t agree with, then the answer will always be no. If you can think of anymore, I would be happy to hear them.

Beauty Trend | Draping

Draping Beauty Trend
Hi guys, 

It’s all about the latest makeup trends today. We had contouring, non-touring, strobing and now draping. Yes, I agree, it is a silly name. Draping is all about adding depth to your face by sculpting with colour rather than our normal bronzer shades. I don’t know about you but I instantly thought of 80s makeup where they have lashings of blusher heading all the way up to their temples. I adored this makeup look. In the 80s! But I wouldn’t dare try it nowadays. Especially not with the vibrant pinks and purples they were rocking back in the day. Thankfully, this trend is a mellowed out version of that extreme look and involves some pretty subtle blushers. 

Marc Jacobs has commanded us all to drop the contour and start draping and normally if someone as great as Marc tells me I need to do something, I tend to listen. Yes, I am easily persuaded and I always fall for the latest makeup trend. Way Bandy, celebrity makeup artist to Cher and Elizabeth Taylor, and author of Designing Your Face first introduced the world to this trend back in the 80s and now it has made a comeback. He stated that he wanted to bring out the natural drape of the face by using this technique also known as Colour Glow.

The way to do this is by simply using a deeper shade of blush and applying just below the cheekbones, think contouring but not as harsh. You then start blending two blusher shades together and placing on the higher parts of your cheekbones and blending horizontally toward the temple. Blending is key for this look and no bright colours for day time, unless that’s the look you are going for. I prefer it to look understated. Add a pop of colour to the apples of your cheeks and you are good to go.

Draping can be amazing for a creative makeup looks, editorial pieces and for those of us who are brave enough to add brighter shades to our cheeks. If you are doing an editorial look, then apply the deeper shades of blusher to the jawline, hollows of the cheeks and side of the neck.

I used the Gwen Stefani Blush Palette by taking the shade OC to deepen my cheeks and then adding Hush over this to create a more highlighted version of draping. I liked it but didn’t love it. I am going to play around with this makeup look but at the moment, I prefer a contour, blusher and highlight combo or just a highlighted face so sadly, this is not my favourite makeup trend. 

Would you try Draping?
Is this just another trend that will quickly fade?

Hi guys, 

After having a major Pinterest session the other day, I came across the lovely Rebecca from “From Roses” latest posts including one based on choosing one product from each beauty category. I really liked this idea, so much so, that I decided to carry it out too. I changed mine up a little by only choosing drugstore products and adding more categories. I am going to choose products based on everything I do after cleansing and moisturising so I don’t leave anything out. Please head on over to From Roses post to see what she choose as some of her choices are stunning! 

There's only one primer for me and that’s the Nivea Post Shave Balm for Sensitive Skin (£5.35), I use this all the time. Every time I apply my makeup, regardless of where I am going, this is the first step for me. I have a full review of this bad boy right here.

This is the easiest one to choose, of course it’s going to be Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (£9.99). I have raved about this ever since I first purchased it and years later it is still a staple in my foundation drawer. I love the consistency of it (think Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua but way cheaper), how easy it glides onto the skin, the subtle glow it gives and its impeccable staying power. An absolute must have! 

This was a little tougher I have to admit. I like so many drugstore concealers but after thinking long and hard, I decided on Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19) as it’s amazing. The consistency is magical, it blends out beautifully and covers a multitude of sins. I use this to cover dark circles, to cover blemishes, redness around my nostrils and also to highlight down the centre of my face. It is an absolute dream.

Face Powder
It has to be Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (£3.99) doesn’t it! Not much to say about this other than it helps keep my makeup on all day.

I have tried an obscene amount of contouring products in the past but when I am in a rush and just want something to add a bit of colour then I find myself reaching for the Tanya Burr Peachy Glow Palette (£8). This is perfect for my fair skin and as it’s a compact it also includes a highlighter and blush.

Even though the TB contour palette has a blusher, I always reach for the multi toned Max Factor Crème Puff Blush (£8.99). I really struggled to pick just one shade so I am picking all 6 of them as they are just dreamy. This is easy to blend and you only need the tiniest amount on your brush to create a gorgeous shade on your skin. 

Has to be Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate (£4). It’s the only drugstore highlighter I have used and had to take a step back once the glow was applied! Seriously impressive.

Erm, there is only one mascara out there for me and it is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (£7.99). I was always a Falsies (£8) kind of a girl until this beauty was released. I honestly cant big it up anymore, it creates the most gorgeous lashes by coating each and every lash, even the small corner ones. It helps to blend your lashes into false ones without being over the top. It has the blackest of black shades, beautiful formula and better yet, it doesn’t bloody transfer onto my eyelids or bottom lash line throughout the day. I have a full review right here

This is a little frustrating as my all-time favourite is the NYC Liquid Eyeliner but I can’t seem to find it anymore so I have to settle on the NYX Vinyl Liquid Liner (£5.50) which is my second favourite. The NYX liner is a dream come true, it has a thin tip which helps to glide over the eye to create a beautiful line and it is easy to create a little flick or a full blown wing. I’m not saying it will be perfect every time as that depends on the person but this is really good. It is super dark, one of the blackest liners I have ever used and I don’t have any issues with it moving throughout the day. 

Soap and Glory Archery (£10) is the best I have tried from a drugstore. I have tried a million different compacts, gels, pencils, powders and this is still the one I would go to as it has a little pencil for precision and then a felt tip point to create texture. 

This is a little tougher as there are so many good lip products out there, especially from the drugstore. If I had to choose just one I would pick the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms (£7.99) as I find them to be moisturising, pigmented and have a great selection of shades. 

Setting Spray
It has to be L'Oréal Paris Infallible Fixing Mist (£7.99), this is a little cloudy concoction that helps keep your makeup stay on all day. If there was only one setting spray in the world and this was it, I would be happy. 

So there we have it, if I could only choose one product from each section, then it would be these guys. I actually buy these over and over again as they are some of the best products on the market, well for me anyway. I love the finish I get after applying my full face and I have to say, I am never disappointed with how my makeup settles as the day goes on. 

PS. The print in the pictures was created by Jemma over at Dorkface. You should check out her Etsy Store, she has all kinds of wonderful girly, colourful pieces.

What would be your top picks?

Holiday Reads

Holiday Reads - Beauty Talk With Lauren

Kindle Paperwhite


Hi guys,

As you know, I am an avid reader and last year really took the biscuit when it came to the number of books I read of holiday. You can find that post here where I discussed what I read while I was in Corfu but the total number was ten. I couldn't quite believe it but when you don’t have a TV and your lying by a pool all day, there isn't much else you can do other than read and drink cocktails ha-ha. Obviously we went out, done excursions and seen some of the sites but that holiday was all about relaxing and that’s exactly what we done.

This year, we are going back to Corfu, different place though, and we plan to do pretty much the same thing. As we done most of the touristy things last year, we are going to relax by the sea and pretty much read all day. May sound boring to you but it sounds divine to me. As always I am taking my kindle, I got a new Paperwhite (£110) for my birthday and have already loaded it up with over 100 books. I also ordered books in their physical form, I don’t know, I’m still a little old school and love the feel and smell of a book so I take two or three in my hand luggage. Without further ado, here are the books which I want to read on holiday.

I love Rylan. I know a lot of people gave him stick when he first popped on our screens in 2012 but I’ve always loved his attitude and quick wit. He has taken the presenting world by storm, and rightly so. I feel as though he is on every channel now but fair play to him, he could have taken the endorsement route, and by that I mean putting his name to many shitty products, but he decided to work hard and build up his reputation. I am dying to read this as I love autobiography. I also like the fact he wrote it himself, no ghost writers like most people out there nowadays.

Come on now, you all know by now that crime is my favourite genre. Chris Carter used to work as a criminal psychologist for several years, during which he interviewed and worked on over one hundred cases involving serial killers, murderers and serious offenders so you know he will be good at capturing how they think. This book is all about a sadistic serial who has been arrested for his crimes but two years later an another body is found which is very similar to his work. It may be a copycat or they police may have sent the wrong person to his execution. I have to say, this is right up my street.

Something about this book really makes me wanna read it, so I’m doing it. It’s not a book I would normally reach for as it’s all about teenage angst, something I stay away from. I can’t stand the Twilight or Divergent type books as they are very predictable. Give me a break!

I am intrigued by cults so this book is right up my street. This is very like the infamous Charlie Manson and his girls who committed the horrific murder of Sharon Tate and six others. I have read a few pages but I am going to leave this for the plane I think.

This book is all about three sisters who live with a mean tempered father. One night when a fight gets out of hand, they decide to run away from home and end up in an even worse nightmare when their truck breaks down. It then jumps eighteen years into the future where one of the sisters and a niece go missing. I love the sound of this. I think it will be very much like a chapter in the past and then a chapter in the future. I love these type of books. They are full of suspense and they build up to an excellent ending. I recently finished That Night by Chevy which was pretty much the same style of writing and it was great.

I have read all of Gillian’s books and I have to say, she is slowly becoming one of my favourite authors. This one is all about two girls who go missing and reporter Camille is dragged into it. This is to be made into a TV show with Amy Adams in the lead so I want to read it before it airs on TV.

I am one morbid soul aren’t I? I’ve just realised that most of these books are all about girls going missing but what can I say, I love the types of books! I’m not one for romantic beach novels, they just don’t float my boat. I don’t really care about Mandy pining over Steven for 17 years and then getting together with him at the end! No offence if you do, it’s just not for me. Anyway, this is all about another serial killer who kills young girls. No surprise there. I promise I am not a secret serial killer nor do I have any tendencies to kidnap anyone, I just really like crime, I did study Forensic Science remember.

These are the books I have either downloaded or bought and I am so excited to read them. I will give you an update on them when I return from holiday mid August. I will end up reading more or changing my mind after reading the first few chapters and hating the book but I shall let you know.

Beauty Wishlist

Beauty Wishlist - Beauty Talk With Lauren

Hi guys, 

Its my wee mammy's birthday today so I am taking her out, colouring her hair and spoiling her with presents as my sisters are away. Hopefully she has a nice day with little old me ha-ha. 

I thought I would put together a wish list as I haven't done one for ages so I thought I would focus on makeup today. I have refrained from buying makeup recently, well a few bits here and there aren’t going to hurt anyone but I haven't had a real splurge as I am saving for my holiday next month. That doesn't stop me pining after some amazing products out there. 

The first things I want to get my hands on are the new Becca Cosmetics & Jaclyn Hill releases which are the Shimmering Skin Perfector Slimlight ($28 see picture for swatches).These are part of the Champagne Glow Collection and come in three shades. They are travel friendly pen highlighters which allow you to be more precise when applying your highlighter. I think these would be great for the inner corner of your eyes, brow bone, cupids bow and bridge of your now before blending out. The Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duo ($38) also look pretty special. They come in four varieties each including a highlighter and blusher. 

Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duo

I am running low on foundations and want to try a few that I haven't had the pleasure of before rather than buy ones I am familiar with so I have the Guerlain Tenue de Perfection Foundation (£37) and the Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation ($43) on my wish list as they both have great reviews and look perfect. I wouldn’t know where to begin shade wise, but I’m sure I can figure it out. 

Metallic lipsticks are all the rage right now with brands such as Milani, Jeffree Star and Kylie Cosmetics all jumping on the bandwagon so it’s no surprise that I have included the Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick (£19.90) in the shade Solano (see picture below for close up). This is a beautiful copper shade and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.  As well as the Ofra Liquid Lip, I finally want to try some Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip Products as I have had my eye on their products for the longest time but I refuse to pay for shipping and I don't want to go through the hassle of shipping to another address in the US and then shipping here and probably being hit with custom charges so I will bide my time and wait for them to become available in the UK, which is going to be sooner rather than later if rumours are to be believed.

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick Solano
The last items on my wish list are the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops (£34) which look incredible! I am so excited to buy this. I have watched a few tutorials using this product and it honestly couldn’t get any better when it comes to glowing like the sun. The new Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème ($26) also looks pretty fab. I bought the Lock-It Foundation last year and I have to say, it’s one of the highest coverage foundations I have ever used. I don’t normally like thick foundations but this was very comfortable so I am keen to try the concealer to see if it's just as good. Lastly but not least, I want to try the new Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo ($42) and the Marc Jacobs Cover (t) Stick (£28). I have yet to try anything from the Marc Jacobs Beauty line but I am sick of hearing everyone's praises and still not owning anything. That will change soon enough!

That’s all I have for today. I’m sorry they are a lot of US links but I have been browsing Sephora and most of these caught my eye. Ofra and Colourpop only have American links as they are based there so if you wanna buy straight from the website please check the shipping costs as they might be ridiculous. If you really do want to buy Colourpop and don't mind the hassle that goes along with shipping it to the UK, I would advise you to check out Hannah's post which you can find here as she has a fantastic blogpost about her first order.
