NYX cosmetics at Next

Hi all,

A quick post to tell you my thoughts about the selection of NYX cosmetics at Next stores. I have heard quite a few people people say that the selection is not very good.

It probably varies from store to store but when I visited a local branch I was delightfully surprised to see a wide selection crammed into a tiny space!


There was everything you would hope for: the famous Jumbo eye pencil in milk (£5), the amazing blushes (£6) and the wicked dreams eyeshadow pallete.




There were also products I have not seen before such as “The Curve” felt tip eye liner and the matt and dewy finishing sprays which look innovative!

You can also purchase online here

It’s exciting when an exotic makeup line suddenly becomes accessible. I’m looking forward to stepping into the world of NYX and experimenting with them myself! If only Make Up Forever was here too! Have you tried any NYX products?


Beauty blogger Meet-up #LdnXmasMeet

Hi lovelies! First of all apologies for the lack of posts recently. A project at work I have been working on for few months was gearing up and I’ve hardly had time to eat let alone blog 🙂 Now that the holidays are drawing closer I am finally have time again!

I happened to come across a tweet from Ellie from Ellies Ramblings about a London Beauty Blogger meetup and since I am new to the blogging world I thought it was a great opportunity to meet some fellow bloggers! I don’t usually go to events where I don’t know anyone but the beauty blogging community is so lovely and I’m glad I went!

The event was a dinner in Piccadilly Circus in London and was a lot of fun! There were about 20 other bloggers and everyone was so friendly.  Not only did we learn about each others blog and exchange tips but there were also goody bags and prizes to be won!  The other bloggers on my table were: Caroline from Fille de la ville , Lorilee from Lorilee’s London, Becky from Lipgloss and Lashes  and Kimberley from Kimberley’s Beauty Blog.

We also received a lovely goody bag which is a fantastic surprise!  Here’s a quick review from my first impressions:


Mandara Amber Heaven Spa Travel Getaway Bag (£19.50)

I had not come across Mandara before, but it smells absolutely divine. I have been to many high end spas in London and across the world and the smell of these products transported me back to that state of relaxation and tranquility! The Sandalwood and patchouli are particulairy strong giving an aromatherapy experience.

This selection included: Softening Body Cream, Nourishing Hand Cream, Conditioning Shower Cream and Moisturising Bath Essence


Kiss Nail Wrap, Elemis Fresh Skin Exfoliating Face Wash, Nourish Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer and Nourish Argan Skin renew.


There was also a competition and I won a scaredoo which I had never seen before! It is like a Tangle Teezer but even better it’s 2-in-1  – a paddle brush on one side with a de-tangler on the other. This is EXACTLY what I need for the gym so I am very excited to try it out. I will post a review very soon so keep your eyes peeled.

I haven’t tried the Elemis face wash yet, but is definitely a range that I have heard about and want to try. I played around with the Nourish Golden Glow and Argan Skin renew which both seem good quality and lovely. The Golden Glow illuminator is really lovely on my skintone and is true to its word with a lovely golden sheen.

Ellie, Chloe and Perdi did a fantastic job hosting. I am really looking forward to attending more events like these. Have you been to any events like these? xx
