Throughout my blogging ‘journey’, I’ve watched The Hut Group grow from strength to strength. They have a whole array of beauty websites, each with their own niche and each with their own audience. They are high up on my list of ‘best places to shop’ and I often send non-bloggers in their direction for great deals on beauty products. Beauty Expert is just one of their fabulous websites, stocking everything you could ever need – from niche skincare, to high end makeup. I was recently offered the chance to treat myself to some beautiful goodies, so I’m here to tell you what I picked up!
theBalm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette* (£30 here)
I’m 99% sure that this palette has featured on practically all my favourite blogs and I’ve been desperate to get my hands on it! As the name suggests, the palette features twelve neutral shades which can be used to create a variety of looks. The shades are all complementary to one another, so you can either use them on their own, or blend them together to make a more complex look. I think this is going to be a fantastic daily palette and I can’t wait to start playing with all the shades.
FACEINC Cat Nap Brightening Sheet Mask* & Flower Power Hydrating Sheet Mask* (£5 each)
When I saw the launch of FACEINC (the new skincare sister of Nails Inc) I book marked it in my brain, adding it to my virtual shopping list. So I thought this would be the perfect time to try out these new products! The Cat Nap Brightening Sheet Mask has been designed for normal to dry skin, with lots of lovely ingredients to revitalise the complexion. The mask itself is printed with a cat’s face, which just adds a cute and playful touch. The Flower Power Hydrating Sheet is printed with an iconic flower crown, matching it’s lovely name. This mask is designed to quench thirsty skin, leaving you with a radiant complexion.
To use both this masks you simply apply them to dry skin, place the mask carefully over your face and ensure it’s getting even contact to the skin. After 15 minutes, you simply remove the mask and gently massage excess liquid into the skin.
Popband London Hair Ties* (£6 here)
I used to be one of those people who never, ever, tied up her hair. However, since joining the gym, all I seem to do is get frustrated with hair ties that destroy my hair. I recently discovered Popband London Hair Ties and I’m in love! They are a super-stretchy hair tie which secures your hair in place without leaving dents or kinks. You get five in this handy pack, which is going straight in my gym bag!
Pixi Glow-y Powder in Rome Rose* (£14 here)
You’re probably aware that beauty brand Pixi, recently collaborated with four different influencers to create a range of products! I actually had my eyes on Caroline Hirons’ Double Cleanse (which wasn’t on the website), but I found myself drawn to the Pixi Glow-y Powder. The Pixi Glow-y Powder was designed in collaboration with international beauty blogger Aspyn Ovard. It’s a lovely rose pink hue, which adds a sheer wash of colour to the cheeks. It uses light reflecting pigments to brighten and highlight, so it’s going to be a beautiful product for springtime.
Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter in Kitten* (here)
To complete my haul I picked up two products from Stila, which just happens to be one of my favourite brands at the moment. I already have one of the Heaven's Hue Highlighters and I was desperate to add ‘Kitten’ to my collection. It’s a stunning, lightweight highlighter, which has a very unique texture. It’s almost bouncy to touch and it’s cream-based, ultra-fine texture just melts into the skin! I use this everywhere the sun would naturally touch the face and it’s perfect for adding radiance to your makeup look. This is a great product for your travel makeup bag, so you can chuck it around knowing it won’t break!
Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Diamond Dust* (here)
I’m not to say that this is now my fourth eyeshadow from this new lineup from Stila. This eyeshadows are just incredible and they really transform any makeup look in an instant. They are an incredible, water-based glitter eyeshadow, which are packed to the brim with glitter pigment. I apply these straight from the applicator all over my eyelid, the set in an instant and they do not budge, ALL DAY! Whenever I get these eyeshadows, I get loads of compliments, as they just glimmer in the light and get a lot of attention. Diamond Dust is a pretty silver shade and I cannot wait to experiment with it!
