Tarte Cosmetics Haul | First Impressions

A couple of weeks ago, amidst some exam stress, I did a bit of online shopping and managed to bag myself an amazing deal with Tarte Cosmetics! They were offering a make-up bag filled with 6 full sized products for only £56 (however, usually the entire purchase would be worth £180+). Apparently they do this once or twice every year. I’ve always wanted to try out their make-up so I couldn’t really resist!

It did take a couple of weeks to get to me, which was made clear on the website when I purchased it since there was such a high demand for this deal, but I received it a few days ago and I was so excited I had to start writing about them ASAP.

I’ve only tried out these products a couple of times, but I will be coming back to review them at a later date when I’ve played around with them first. For now, I’ll just be doing a first impressions / look at what I bought.

Dyeing My Naturally Red Hair

Hi guys! A while ago I was watching a YouTube video and a woman (I’m sorry, I can’t remember your channel name / find it again!) with red hair similar to mine tried out the Superdrug Pick & Mix non-permanent hair colour, and said that she had some success with it.

I’ve always wanted to dye my hair bright colours, especially a peachy pink as of late, but having red hair stops me before I can even get started. Not only would I have to bleach the shit out of my hair, but then if I put dye on top of that it wouldn’t stick to my hair as well as it would for people with other hair types. I’ve bleached parts of my hair and put permanent dye on top before, and the dye fades so fast / basically washes out (not instantly of course, but quicker than it usually should).

However, after hearing this woman’s review, I wanted to try it out for myself and see if I could get a slight pink colour to my hair!

Harry Potter-Inspired Eyeshadow Palette // Review

I know I’m a bit late to the Wizardry and Witchcraft Palette train, but I finally got my hands on this beauty and (as an embarrassingly huge Harry Potter fan) I’m so excited!

For those who might not know, this palette is by Storybook Cosmetics, a wonderful company that makes beautiful, cruelty-free fiction-inspired make up and tools – you can get matching wand shaped make up brushes SWEET LORD.

This particular eyeshadow palette, as you can probably tell from the title, is inspired by Harry Potter! The colours are magical, as are the names (Bewitched, Merlin, Potions, etc). I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to get my hands on a make up product before.
