I am seriously in love with these lipstick pencils! The texture, pigment and colours are just amazing! I hope Eyeko bring out a neutral pink as i would buy it in a second. They apply so smoothly and easily for long lasting glossy lipstick that is very moisturising.

Love love love all of these, Shoreditch does look a little lighter in the photo but it's a very pretty pink and can be built up to create a much darker colour. 
The Fat Balms are fab as you can use them on your cheeks, eyes or lips! I love Toffee as it looks beautiful on both the cheeks and lips, it's really highlighted and makes a great bronzer.

Winner Of Elizabeth Arden Set

Congratulations to....clairabelle

Here was Clairabelle's best beauty tip:

"My best kept beauty secret is..... drink lots of water it really helps to keep your skin clear :-)"

Although Clairabelle's secret was very simple, it is the most effective beauty tip! Many of us forget to drink water (including myself) and it's so important, i myself feel 100 times better after drinking 3-4 pints of water a day and the results show within a few days of starting. The improvement to your skin is unbelievable, your hair feels more healthy and you just feel all-round amazing. It really is the best beauty secret and everyone should be doing it more often!

I want to thank everyone who entered, every single entry was amazing and extremely helpful! I wish there was more than one prize.

See you at the next competition!

In depth Look Into Foxy Locks Extensions - Quality, Thickness, Wefts, Clips + Shine. Review

I wanted to share an in depth look at Foxy Locks Extensions, there are so many different kinds of extensions out there that i wanted to show you what makes Foxy Locks amazing.
One of the great things about Foxy Locks is that they are made soley for Foxy Locks, meaning you can't get the same anywhere else which means you will always be getting the same high quality product from a trusted retailer.

There are lots of different factors that determine high quality hair extensions, as soon as you receive your extensions you will know what kind of quality they are just by touching them. 
I will be showing #1 Jet Black and #60 Light Ash Blonde - the darkest and the lightest colour from Foxy Locks, to show you the quality is not compromised by the colour.

The Hair Quality
Foxy Locks are 100% human Remy hair - this is the highest quality hair on the market. All the cuticles of the hair are running in the same direction which means they are tangle free and silky soft to touch!

The Hair Shine
The great thing about human hair extensions compared to synthetic is that they look natural against your own hair. Synthetic hair usually has a very unnatural 'plastic' shine to it. Remy human hair has a beautiful natural sheen that shows the hair is extremely healthy. They completely transform any hair!

The Clips
After lots of research these are the best clips, they are small yet sturdy with a silicone strip that grabs onto your natural hair to stop them slipping. The silicone also cushions the hair for minimal damage. They are sewn tightly to the weft to keep them in place.
The Thickness
Foxy Locks aim was to supply some of the thickest hair extensions on the market, allowing woman all over the world to feel ultra glamorous with their new thicker hair. Foxy Locks offer two different kinds of thickness at this time, depending on what you are trying to achieve. 
The difference is only the weight. All the extensions are the same high quality.

If your hair is fine and/or you are looking for mainly length and some volume then Foxy Locks 120grams set should be suitable for you, this amount of hair is suited to finer hair as it should be all you need to get volume and length. The 120g are also great for woman with curly hair as once curled they appear thicker.

If you are looking for lots volume as well as length or your hair is naturally thick then Foxy locks 160grams should be for you, this set provides even more hair. It will blend in with naturally thick hair and create lots of volume for all hair types.

The Wefts
Foxy Locks come with 10 pieces as standard. The wefts have been thoroughly thought out to be suitable for all head shapes, hair types and for the ultimate blending. The more wefts you have the better your hair extensions will blend as you are evenly spreading the wefts across your head. The wefts are sewn tightly to prevent minimal shedding and to keep them sitting close to your head once clipped in.


The Ends
Foxy Locks are always improving their hair extensions, the ends are a big factor in making extensions look natural. The ends are very natural looking and have the fullness needed to make them look thick and seamless with your hair.

The Results
Super thick natural looking hair extensions of the highest quality!
