New In Beauty: Too Faced, Kiko, Laura Geller!!!

5 November 2017
Today I have all things new from Kiko, Too Faced and Laura Geller I have all the latest to share with you all as I've been testing out all the products for the last month or so. 


Laura Geller Mattifying Primer 
This primer is made for those with oil prone skin although thats not to say that other skin types cant use this because I actually have dry skin. This product contains shea butter which I love as this keeps my skin feeling hydrated and moisturised even whilst my makeup is on. At £25 I do think think this is at the higher end of the scale for a primer but I suppose you get what you pay for, I have only tried high street primers but in comparison this works a lot better and helps my foundation stay on a lot longer.


Laura Geller Baked Swirl Gelato Swirl Illuminator- Ballerina 
First of all how gorgeous is this highlighter, its literally so gorgeous I didn't want to use it... but I did. This shade is a gorgeous golden colour that makes a fabulous highlighter, if you like a really glowy look then you would need to build this up as its not very pigmented with just one swipe, but I've been loving using this to illuminate the corner of my eyes and the top of my lip! This product is £21 which I do think it is worth but I feel like they should do this in a bigger size as its quite a small product.


Asian Touch Collection:

Asian Touch Matte Liquid Lipstick
I find this lipstick so interesting at first I thought it was a nail polish because of the packaging but I do like the unusual packaging, I received this in a a gorgeous shade called 01 Plushy Red a bright red colour. The pigmentation of this lipstick is amazing, it literally comes out as bright red as it looks on the packaging which is amazing!! Also the applicator is great for apply, it makes for precise application which we all know is very important when it comes to red lips.


To go with this is the Asian Touch Lip Liner again in 01 Plushy Red to match the lipstick, this is obviously a perfect match which is amazing as theres nothing worse than trying to find a perfect match. I love the packaging of this products as the pointy end as something different than the usual lip liner. Again this product is long lasting with the lipstick so I would definitely recommend.

Both of these are very affordable with the whole combination costing under £14!



Now onto the amazing goodies I got sent from Too Faced, I literally love the brand Too Faced so I was very excited to receive all this and try it all out!


Too Faced Born This Way Setting Powder
Firstly how amazing is this packaging, I always love Too Faced packaging and this is no different, you can instantly tell that this is a high quality product with the gold engraving on the packaging. This powder is one universal shade for everyone, the shade definitely work for me! This loose powder is amazing for setting your makeup, it makes your makeup last a lot longer and not only that but it just makes your makeup look overall a lot more airbrushed and makes the appearance of my pores seem a lot smaller.


Too Faced Blush: I Will Always Love You 
I know I've said this about near enough all of the packaging but how amazing is this?! The heart shape and the engraving on the actual product itself, its so pretty that I didn't want to use it and ruin the engraving, its one of them products you just want out somewhere in your room on display! The colour of this (sorry forgot to swatch) if a pink colour with a orange tone to it as you would expect from the packaging, the colour pay off of this product is great as its very pigmented but be careful not too put too much on your brush if your fair toned like me!


Too Faced Melted Latex Lipsticks
I recived two of these lipsticks, in shade Love You Long Time & Bite Me I was expecting good things having previously tried their very first matte range which I loved!! Im not usually one to wear glossy lips but these have changed my mind, they are gorgeous! The glide on your lips so easily with the easy applicator, the pigment of these is also incredible. The only downside to this product is that it can feel slightly sticky on your lips but once dried you don't notice this at all. These are priced at £19 pretty standard for a lipstick of the higher end.


Hope you enjoyed this post, what makeup have you bought recently?

Armani Beauty Liverpool!

3 November 2017
Todays post is about all things Armani Beauty, specifically Amani at Liverpool! Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive all these goodies from Armani, and when I say lucky I mean extremely lucky I mean who do I think I am with a Armani haul? (hahaha)



Ecstacy Shine Lip Cream


Firstly I must say I am obsessed with the packaging of these how gorgeous and sleek if the the shiny red design, I straight away thought about how I could put these put on display in my room! Also the packaging is magnetic so the lid is magnetic and I cant stop playing with it! I received two colours first is the brilliant red colour in 401 Hot which on first look does bright red but is almost a dark pink colour, I also received another colour 101 Smile which is a gorgeous nude colour. Overall I love the texture of these lipsticks they feel so moisturising and creamy on the lips. The finish of these lipsticks are also gorgeous, they make your lips look so healthy with there shiny fun lipsticks.

Luminous Silk Foundation

I had literally wanted to try this foundation out for so so long, don't know about you but doesn't almost every youtube rave about it? Firstly Ill start off by saying I don't think the shade is 100% right for me it seems to be slightly too orange so I'm going to get some lightening drops but for now I've been mixing it with a lighter foundation. But I must say I love how this foundation looks, it gives a nice glowy look to my skin which I struggle with because I have extremely dry skin but it manages to not cling to any of the dry patches and not look cakey. Overall I'm loving using this foundation!

Eccentrio Mascara 


So far my favourite product of them all, this mascara is amazing! It aims to provide a long wearing, volumizing mascara and boy it does just that, I am honestly in love with the mascara its not clumpy what so ever and it makes my eyelashes look so so long and have so much volume. Also this is very easy to build up so if your want a bold look then you definitely can do that with this mascara, highly highly recommend!!!

Eye Tint


This is a product I had never heard of before I received this package, I received shade 8 Flannel. I love the idea of this product, this eyeshadow comes on a dofer applicator which is so different to normal eye shadow. This formula is a lot creamier than normal eye shadow so perfect for anyone with dry skin and aims to provide you with 16 hours of lasting power.

Eye and Brow Maestro

This product again is one I had never heard of but one I love the concept of as it can be used as 3 different products, one for your eyebrows, eyeliner and eyeshadow. Personally I think that this will work best for eyebrows rather than eyeshadow, this is really easy to apply as it glides on very easily and stays in place all day.

Armani Liverpool
If any of you guys live in the Liverpool area like I do then you might be interested in the fact that Debenhams have recently launched their Armani counter in store and it looks amazing so please do go take a look!

Top Tips For Getting Through a Mot

1 November 2017
MOT Tests are obviously very important, it is essential you go to the right test centre for you MOT, test centres are regulated by the Department and Transport and DVSA. Ensuring you know what to look for when booking your MOT is crucial. 

Always go to a reliable test centre
Often test centres will offer a cheap price for there test but they aren't always what they're cracked up to be, they will seem great at first and think you've got yourself a bargain but they will often say you need un-necessary repairs that will cost you a small fortune. So before you book your MOT make sure you are booking with proper MOT test centre, to do this you need to ensure you are booking with someone who has a transparency policy so they can't misguide you as the customer. There are a number of MOT testers like this which you can book through from, for example  DAT Tyres website provides MOT London. 


Check your car before your test
Do a simple check of your car to see if you can find anything that you can fix yourself before going to the MOT test, you don't want something silly to stop you passing your test. Things such as: Lights, Brakes, Tyres and windscreens can all be simply tested yourself.

Tyres: Ensure your tyres have at least 1.6mm thread across them and aren't damaged otherwise your mot will be failed

Lights: You're lights must be in full working condition.

Windscreen: If there is any significant chips across the windscreen in front of the driver then you will fail your test.

Number Plates: Your number plate must be clean and easy to read from a distance.

I hope this post helped!

Kenra Haircare!

25 October 2017
I was recently sent over some products to try by Kenrda haircare, if I'm being honest I hadn't heard of Kendra before probably because it had only launched in the U.K. in 2016. Anyway I was very excited to try them out as who doesn't love some new hair care products!

Kenra Haircare shampoo, conditioner dry shampoo
Kenra Haircare shampoo, conditioner dry shampoo

Firstly I love the packaging of all these products, the silver colour adds a luxurious feel to the products which I love, also not many haircare brand use the silver colour so it would definitely stand out on the shelves, this is now being used by a number of salons and can be found on Salon Success.

Kenra Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner 
So first up is the shampoo and conditioner, both these products aim to get rid of any build up on your hair as well as thickening your hair by adding body to your hair. The first thing I will say about this product is the smell, it does have a very overpowering smell of vanilla so if you don't like this scent then this won't be up your street. Overall from using this combination I feel like it has left my hair looking like it has a lot more volume than it usually does so I would definitely recommend this product. 

Kenra Haircare shampoo and conditioner


Kenya Blow Dry Spray & Dry Shampoo
Firstly the blow dry spray, this aims to decrease blow dry time by 50% and provides your hair with heat protection from damage and breakage. Overall I think this has been my favourite product to use, its so easy to use when your hair is wet spray it on and it helps detangle your hair and make your blow dry a lot easier because your hair ends up overall smoother than normal. 

Next it the dry shampoo, now I am very fussy when it comes to dry shampoo as I feel like i can never get rid of the white powder that is left in my hair but this one is genuinely the best dry shampoo I have tried, the products works into your hair very well and leaves your hair looking anything but greasy, overall I really love using this product!

Kenra Haircare Dy Shampoo blow-dry spray


Kenra Hairspray
This spray is designed to give you a light hold and does not weigh your hair down at all. I can say I agree with this, if your hair requires a strong hairspray then this isn't for you I would say this hairspray is more of a everyday use as its light hold and doesnt leave your hair crispy and heavy from the hairspray which I find with a lot of hairsprays and it leaves me wanting to wash my hair far too regularly.

Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Watch

15 October 2017

Daniel Wellington Classic watch

Daniel Wellington Classic Watch

I was recently given the opportunity to review a watch from Daniel Wellington, I got to pick any from the website aren't I lucky ay? Ive always loved Daniel Wellington watches so I was very excited. For anyone that doesn't know Daniel Wellington,  they are a online retailer stocking a huge range of mens and womens watches

I picked the Classic Petite Sterling 28MM in the silver colour, the mesh strap is also available in rose gold and black which are both equally as pretty and available in two face sizes, 28 and 32mm. The watch can also be adjusted to fit your watch without having to do too much work, included is a booklet that shows you how to adjust it. I love the contrast of the face with strap, the black face looks gorgeous with so many outfits.

Overall I would definitely recommend ordering from Daniel Wellington they offer free postage which comes very quickly also they offer free returns so all round they offer a great service.

I also have 15% off code if you would like to purchase one yourself then use the code 'HELENAMULHEARN'

Pixi Beauty Review!

11 October 2017
I was recently sent over these products by Pixi by complete surprise, can you imagine waking up to this parcel?! It safe to say I was one very happy girl. Without giving away too much just yet, the products are amazing, keep reading to see what I think of each product.

Pixi beauty

Aspynovard Glow-y Powder 
pixi beauty
First of all I love this product because its a collaboration with a fellow blogger and youtuber, its so great seeing bloggers doing wonderful things like collaborating with a brand like Pixi. Also helps that this a fab product, I received the shade Rome Rose, this powder has a subtle pink tone to it make it the perfect blush shade whereas the other powders could be used as a highlighter. I like how subtle this is making it easy to build up to suit different skin tones and to create different looks. This is also only £14, a bargain for such a great product, you can find it here. 

Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse 
pixi beauty double cleanse

Again a product made in collaboration with a fellow Youtuber and Blogger, this double cleanse provides a solid cleansing oil on one side and a cleansing cream on the other. I have been using this in my daily skincare routine for the past month and I have been really enjoying it so far, I have very dry skin and struggle to find things that don't irate my sensitive skin but this feels so soft and gentle on the skin, the soil cleanser also leaves my skin feeling so clean like every bit of makeup or die has been removed which is great.  This product is £24 and is available here.

Pixi Glow Tonic 
pixi glow tonic

I was literally so excited to try this because I have literally heard so many good things, this is a toner that aims to give smoother, brighter and clearer skin. Firstly I love the scent of this product, along with the cleanser I have started using this in my daily skincare routine and the combination of them both has left my skin looking fresh and kept spots at bay which I am loving! This product comes in two sizes, one is 100ml perfect for traveling or just for first trying the product or a larger size which is better value for money 250ml for £18 you can find it here. 

Maryam Maquillage Strobe & Bronze Palette 
pixie maryam strobe palette


Again another collaboration with a blogger and youtuber, this palette features three highlighting and three bronzing shades. I have been trying them all out recently and I must say I prefer the bronzers over the highlighters for me the highlighters just aren't pigmented enough you would have to really build them up if you want a glowy look which I always want but haven't always got the time for before uni or work. Overall I do love this palette and I cant wait to use it some more, you can find it here.

Get the look- Its Eye Time 
pixi its judy time eye shadow palette

pixi its judy time eye shadow palette

Again collaboration with a Youtuber, this palette was made in collaboration with Its Judy Time a youtuber who I have watched and loved for years so I was so excited to have a product made in collaboration with her. So this eyeshadow palette has an amazing range of 12 different colours that you can see from the swatches, the colours are perfect for the autumn season, the one thing I love about this palette is how pigmented these shades are and they blend out so well I'm obsessed with shade ping and night night, they both are incredible colours to blend! You can find this palette here. 

I hope you enjoyed this review of Pixi Beauty, have any of you tried and loved any of their products? Let me know!

Sensse Beauty

19 September 2017
I was recently sent over two different products by Sensse Beauty to try out and its safe to say I was very excited to get testing them!

Go Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush 



This facial cleansing brush has become a staple in my skincare routine every night since I started using it, I simply apply my facial wash on the brush and turn it on, it comes with two different speeds  to fit into what ever skincare routine you like. This comes with two interchangeable heads, one for sensitive skin and one for exfoliation. It claims to 'gently exfoliates with over 600 oscillations per minute to deeply cleanse your skin and remove blackheads and other impurities.' Which I definitely have to agree with.
A great thing about this is its size, it is travel size so makes it easy to take anywhere with you, its also cordless and lasts for 180 times without needing charging. 

You can find this here. 


Next is the Facial Contour Definer, although you may feel this looks a bit ominous as I did when I opened this parcel. This is basically gives you a mini face massage whilst at the same time giving your jawline a lot definition by fitting into the contour of your face. This promotes the blood circulation and stimulates collagen. So far after trying this I have really been enjoying it!


To find out more about SENSSE products you can have a look here 

Swarovski Crystalline Pen

3 September 2017



I was recently sent over this gorgeous Swarovski  Crystalline Pen available from T.H. Baker, this pen features a glittery design at one end and then a block colour at the other, in my case I received the lilac colour but there are a range of different colours available.

One thing I love about this pen is that it doubles up as stylus, the end of the pen can be used on any electrical devices, I've been using mine quite a lot on my phone recently and I've been really enjoying using it!

I think this makes a great gift, maybe for someone for starting university or as a graduation present. This also comes nicely packaged so it looks like a lovely gift and one I would personally love to receive. This is priced at £35 which is pretty reasonable if you ask me!

You can find the range here.
