Fenty Beauty Beach Please Killawatt Foil Highlighter and Summer Nights Iridescent Lip Luminizers

When I saw the new Fenty Beauty Beach Please Summer 2018 collection, I got very excited! The original collection didn’t tempt me to buy anything but the lure of the pink and orange highlighter was irresistible to me! Check out the video:

Playtime with my December Beauty Cocoon Box

Playtime is more fun when you see it in action so here is my video of me trying all of the products for the first time from my December 2017 Beauty Cocoon Box!

That was my last Beauty Cocoon Box as I have a lot of other makeup to get through. Also, the box isn’t quite what it says it is (for example, it says it’s a luxury box but there was an MUA Makeup Academy eye pencil in the last box!) which is a little annoying. Anyway, as always, here are some pics:

Christmas Gift Guide 2017 – Part 1 – Under the Tree

This is my first Christmas gift guide! I’ve based it on products I have used throughout the year and would love to see under the tree or in my stocking. It’s mainly beauty, as you can imagine, but there are some other treats in here too. Plus, lots of the brands are small, black-owned and British so if you want something truly unique or patriotic, start here!

Hopefully you’ve read my earlier post on this, “#TBT Black model spotting in magazine features in 2016 Part 1“. If not, take a look!

#TBT Black & South-Asian model spotting in magazine features in 2016 Part 2

I like it when magazines try to acknowledge the diversity of their readership and communicate that diversity is beautiful.  In this continuation I’ll be looking at Vogue Magazine and Harper’s Bazaar (UK editions) which are all magazines I subscribe to.

Beauty Cocoon Box First Impressions October 2017

Hey, so I filmed a video! I did it a few weeks ago but have only just been able to edit it. It thought I’d try something new by giving my first impressions of a new beauty box for women of colour called “Beauty Cocoon Box”.

There are two boxes to choose from: a beauty box which is makeup and makeup tools costing £21 (not £20 as I said in the vid) and a skincare box which costs £25. I went for the makeup box obviously!
