Soap and Glory For Less


Whilst out for a walk in the gorgeous sunshine we had been having the other day I popped into my local department store; Morleys. I am unaware if and where Morleys have other branches, so I'm not sure if any of you will be able to get hold of any of these items.

I didn't intentionally go in to look at beauty products, as Morley's is more of a home store. But whilst wondering round I saw a "bargin bin" filled with reduced beauty products and to my delight, the majority of the items were from Soap and Glory.

I picked up four items...


Catch a Wrinkle Day Moisturiser, Boots RRP: £11

Soap & Glory Catch a Wrinkle in Time Age Avoiding Day Moisturiser is a super light-weight but deep-sinking. A cream de les cremes.

How to Use:
All skin-type suitable, (but perhaps not oily enough for extremely dry skin types).
Use Soap & Glory Catch a Wrinkle in Time Age Avoiding Day Moisturiser . Just massage a light layer over a well-cleansed face and neck, let it soak in before you put your make up on, and hopefully you will. (Catch one. Or more. Ideally, you’ll catch them all.)

Eyes, Lips, Face

A couple of weeks ago ELF or had their "last ever" 50% off everything weekend sale, the offer had been tempting me the 2 or three previous weekends that they had run the offer, but the phrase "last ever" did it for me and I hopped along to the website and started chucking things into my online shopping basket.
I set myself a limit of £20 once the discount had been taken off, so I was getting £40 worth of products. So, here's what I got...
From the ELF Mineral Collection:
  • Bronzed Mineral Glow; these sheer, natural powders will leave your skin looking and feeling healthy and radiant.
  • Blush in "Joy" (mauve lilac); Create a subtle color definition to your cheeks that will add radiance and a glow, for a healthy look you can see.

With key vitamins A & B, these eyeshadows hydrate and minimize the appearance of fine lines. Available in an array of light-reflecting color options they can be worn wet or dry, together or alone, for countless shimmering looks and trends. The all natural consistency makes them incredibly easy to apply and blend for a flawless finish.
From the ELF Studio Collection:
  • Cream eyeliner in "Copper"; Creates smooth lines that are defined and precise. Smudge-proof, budge-proof and water-resistant coverage for all day wear to combat against, sweat, tears and rain!
  • Matte Lip Colour in "Natural"; This convenient jumbo sized lip pencil creates exact colour application with twist up ease so you never have to sharpen. The pigment rich colour glides on effortlessly and easily to provide long lasting matte colour. The enriched Vitamin A, C & E formula moisturizes and hydrates lips for beautiful healthy looking lips.
  • Flawless Finish Foundation in "Sand"; Achieve a flawless complexion with the silky smooth e.l.f. Studio Flawless Finish Foundation. The lightweight formula blends in naturally for a beautiful semi-matte finish. This liquid foundation applies easily and lasts all day for visibly brighter and radiant looking skin. Using our Flawless Finish Foundation not only restores uneven skin textures and tones, but most importantly, the SPF 15 protects your skin against harmful sun damage!
From the regular ELF range:
  • Shimmering facial whip in "Camilia"; Multipurpose, on-the-go whipped colorant is vitamin B, C and E packed to instantly brighten and soothe skin with no greasy after-feel.
  • Eyelid Primer; Preps your eyelid for smoother, longer-lasting and crease-proof eyeshadow. The ultra sheer nude color works to increase eye color longevity. The lightweight liquid formula quickly absorbs into the skin for comfortable wear.
  • Studio Stipple Brush; This new antibacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more ansorbent and can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. Studio brush! The layered bristles create a soft airbrushed look that's perfect for applying foundation or adding colour definition to cheekbones or highlighting with soft layers. Use this brush with any liquid or powder face product such as foundation, blush or bronzer to build your coverage from sheer to heavy.
  • Defining eye brush; Velvety bristles line eyes, fill in eyelids, and define thin or sparse brows.
  • Eyeshadow brush; Specially sheered brush tip absorbs the perfect amount of eye shadow and provides long lasting color saturation. The comfort curved brush contours the eye with natural gliding strokes for easy and accurate eye shadow application.
  • Kabuki Body brush; The larger brush has the ideal size and density for perfect powder application (such as Mineral Booster), and to apply bronzer or highlighter to your face and/or body.

I’m back after over a month of absence. Sincere apologies and I won’t bore you with all the details, but life sort of took over and I didn’t really have time for any blogging, and it was the last thing I wanted to do after a long day in front of a computer screen at work.

However, it was my birthday on Monday and I turned the ripe old age of 25, so I thought this would be a great way to break back into the blogging scene with a few birthday related posts.

July Favourites

Here are the products/items I've been loving for July...



Marc Jacobs: Daisy Eau So Fresh Perfume

Daisy is my absolute favourite perfume, so you can imagine my excitement everytime they bring out a new one, I love collecting them all and the pretty bottles.

This bottle was a present from my parents when they went to the Carribean this summer they picked this up in Duty Free. I believe it is in the biggest size they do. It's a very light, delicate floral scent, perfect for a summers day.


Tanning products

With this weather we are having at the moment in the UK, it's hard to know whether to tn or not. One minute I'm baring my pins, the next I'm back in my opaques. This is where instant tan comes in - if ever I haven't tanned and I wake up to glorious sunshine, this is a quick and easy solution.

Rimmel Sun Shimmer in Medium Matte has been my go to instant tan for years. I dread to think how many bottles of the stuff I have worked my way through. I tend to use this for nights out the most. It gives a good, even colour.

Last week I picked up this new product from L'Oreal, their Waterproof Glam Bronze Spray Foundation for legs. Obviously it's easy to apply with it being a spray, but it did go everywhere all over my bathroom! The instructions say that for a deep tan there is no need to rub it in, which I don't really agree with, I do think it does need rubbing in, or it can seem rather patchy. However, once rubbed in, this gives a lovely colour and a smooth appearance to the legs (as if I had tights on).


Sleek Storm Palette

Sleek palettes are always really good quality, and the Storm palette is my favourite out of the three I own, I have been using it a lot recently.


YSL Rouge Volupte No. 2 Nude Beige

Ever since I have owned this lipstick, the rest of my collection hasn't seen the light of day. It's a gorgeous pink shade and very moisturising and creamy, and I am fast running out of this *boo hoo*


MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural: Medium

I finally got this last week after umming and ahhing over it for months , and I have been using it to set my foundation across my T-Zone to keep oil at bay.


Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

This has fast become my favourite foundation. After using Revlon Colorstay for a while, I now find it too heavy and it can go cakey quite easily.

Healthy Mix is a Medium coverage, that is buildable without any caking - and it smells pretty amazing too!


Benefit High Beam

I got this trial size free with Glamour magazine and it is an amazing highlight, I will be investing in the full size when this runs out.


Bourjois Bronzer

This has been my go-to bronzer throughout July. I use it to contour my face as I have it in the darker shade. It gives my complexion the sunkissed glow without the flecks of chunky glitter.


Pure Coconut Oil

I have been applying coconut oil to the ends of my hair whenever it is wet. It softens and glosses the ends as well as smelling uh-mazing.


And finally, I got an iPhone 4 so this month has been spent getting to grips with it, downloading apps, adding songs and buying cute covers.
