Review: - Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen Kit


Heyy :)

I bought this set for my birthday as I wanted to try these for a long time and I saw they were selling a pack of 5 slightly miniature pencils for only £15 or so and I ordered them from beautybay, plus you get to try a bit of both as I didn't want to just buy 1 and end up not liking it.

And since my birthday was all the way back in november, i've had them for sometime now and can give you my real thoughts on them.

First off I love the packaging of this, Pixi is known for it's cuteness and lime green packaging :)




Info On Packaging

-Award Winning
-Best Sellers
-Waterproof
-Intense Colour 
-Silky Smooth
-Hypoallergenic
-The kit is sold with it's best selling eye pencils

I have to agree with all of the above especially 'intense colour' and 'silky smooth'. You have to simply glide these gently over your lash line and the pigmentation is amazing (there's nothing worse than an eyeliner that tugs on your skin ugh). They are also really blend-able, but they do set really fast..


They are defiantly waterproof as they are a bit of a pain to remove, so make sure you have some waterproof eye make up remover at the ready ;)

The only thing that is annoying about these is that because they are so creamy they run out so quickly and i'm finding myself sharpening these regularly :(







The set comes with:

-Black Cocoa (Matte)
-Black Noir (Matte)
-Oyster Glow (Shimmer)
-Deep Plum (Hint Of Glitter)
-Sage Gold (Glittery)

-  & Sharpener


My Personal Faves Are:

-Oyster Glow
- Black Cocoa

Final Rating:
Waterproof & Long lasting 5/5
Pigmentation 4/5
Silky & Smooth Application 4/5
Packaging 4/5

17/20

P.S -Because I bought this set a while ago and they were limited edition and they don't sell them in a pack anymore, but you can obviously still purchase the originals (in normal size too).

How to: Messy Bun



Since my last hair post went so well and is now my most popular post ever, I thought I would share another one with you.

I'm finally sharing a 'how to' post on messy buns woo! :)

I uploaded a blog post quiet a while ago now of a picture of my messy bun and got requests and comments like 'How did you do that', 'How did you get you're hair to look/stay like that'.

And also 'I'd like to see a more detailed post on what exactly it is you do'

And in all honesty when I say messy, quick and easy I really do mean it.
I wear this hairstyle pretty much everyday because it takes literally no time at all and looks like you've spent more time and effort than you really have ;)



The first thing you want to do is start off putting your hair into a simple pony tail, my hair was already fairly curly so it gave it a lot more volume and texture.



Then take another bobble and pull your hair through it like normal but only half way, then (this is the tricky bit) twist your bobble with your hands and grab the rest of your hair and pull it through and it should look like a really messy bun at this point.


(something like this)




Then finally take a few hair clips or bobby pins (whatever it is you call them) and this is where you decide how neat or messy you want it to look. Place the pins into the back and front to secure it and then pull stands of hair out a tiny bit just to make it look a bit more messy and your pretty much done. If you did want to add hairspray then do as it lasts longer with it especially if your hair isn't the thickest and is prone to falling out of whatever hairstyle you try and do with it haha :)


Also if you leave your bun in all day/night and take it out in the morning you will get natural curly waves which isn't damaging to your hair as it's not any direct heat or added chemicals.




You should get something like this, sorry the picture is kinda blurry though :/

My Favourite Skin Care | Review


Displaying image1.jpeg
(this is what the box set comes with, it also comes with a muslin cloth)

I recently changed my skin care routine and have noticed a lot of difference so I thought I would tell you what i've been using on my skin. I found out about this brand when I was in asda, yes asda and I saw a box full with nspa products for only £10! I had already been eyeing up the brand before and was looking at getting one of the bigger tubes, but because they sold them a tiny bit smaller and in a four pack it was easier to then decide if I liked them or not and got to try a bit of everything. Also they are all numbered thus making it easier to know what to apply first :)



The first one is the cleansing gel, which you apply first. It feels really soft on the skin and isn't too hard to remove either. I really really like this and also if you're feeling a bit lazy on some days you could skip a few steps and just use this.



This is the hot cloth cleanser (which originally comes with the muslin cloth) which i've been really loving it does a good job at removing your make up and I like removing this with either the muslin cloth or a simple flannel. I've noticed a huge difference in my skin since using this.



Next the radiant serum, now i'd never tried a serum before so I was excited to see what all the fuss was about.
I can positively say I now love using serums before my moisturizer, I think it makes your skin look so much more awake than normal and glowy (not oily or sweaty). LOVE IT!


And finally last but not least the brightening day cream, this includes spf15 so a bonus for the summer months. 
This goes perfectly with the serum and moisturizes your skin really well and I would say i've got sort of dry skin but not major, however if I have a few dry patches this will get rid of them in only a few hours (depending on how dry my skin was that day)


I honestly have nothing bad to say about this skin care range, and everything i've tried i've been more than pleased with.
I'd never heard of this brand before like I said earlier,
but if you do use this skincare range do let me know what you think of it in the comments :)
