RADICAL | eye revive creme



Radical eye revive creme*

Hey dolls,
I wanted to write a review for this product here, I was sent this product a little while ago and so switched to this daily for my under-eye area and am loving it so far!
I am quite new to the eye creme game but am starting to think about using more anti-aging products at the moment as its never too early to start.
I liked the idea of this cream because its not just for one purpose, it claims to help with wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness - whilst hydrating.

What I mainly need help with are the dark circles and hydration for my eyes - after using this creme It definatly helped with the hydration and firming, I can notice it the morning after and I've seen a slight improvement with dark circles but I need to use it for an even longer period to really see a difference I think!

The product has a fresh light scent of cucumber which makes this a joy to use for me and it smoothes into the skin so easily and gently. I have really enjoyed using it so far and its quite pricey but I think it is worth it so far! I also like the packaging as its a hygienic built-in pump.

Let me know if you have tried this out too, or your thoughts!

Blue Matter











Top - Monki // Jeans - Topshop // Jacket - Missguided* // Bag - Goodnight Macaroon* // Heels - Zara // Rings - Shop Dixi* & Regal rose* // Ray Ban - Clubmasters // Lips - NYX soft matte lip creme San Paulo // Nails - Divine Wine

Every year I feel like my style changes and evolves a little, sometimes I feel like going for a quirky look and sometimes I love simplicity. This is a simple look & I know theres not much to it but I think i'll be wearing looks like this quite alot this year, I especially love casual jeans with heeled sandals!

We found this spot yesterday and I thought it was perfect for some outfit snaps! Ooh I also wanted to mention this bag, I was 'gifted' it by Goodnight Macaroon and I really love it, I dont have many bright accessories but i'll be rocking this like crazy!

Hey dolls,
Another apology, I have been feeling so uninspired recently and I felt like I kind of lost my blogging mojo, so I really didn't want to post things just for the sake of it when I wasn't feeling passionate about anything. I always feel so guilty when I dont post for a long time!

So today I was catching up on some YT videos and I was actually inspired today by the Lovely Anna from Annaleeandjesse - I had bought this pinafore dress in the sale from River Island a week or two ago and fished it out today - I like that its floral print on black, so it helps me transition from my winter wardrobe from spring comfortably. Still trying to inject a bit of colour into my wardrobe!

Do let me know what you would like to see from me here on the blog as i've hit a bit of a wall and would love to know what you guys like!

NARS 'Torrid'


NARS - Torrid blush

Hey dolls,
The other day I was browsing my local Space NK - I always stop and hover around NARS because everything is just so beautiful but I dont usually pick anything up. This time I decided to get another blush and just treat myself, as I would love a few more NARS blushes and they are amazing!




I first heard of the blush 'Torrid' after watching Zara from 'Mouldyfruit' talk about it in a recent video and as she is of a similar skin tone (but a little more tan!) and said how much she loved it I thought it might work for me too - it also looked lovely in the store.



The only other NARS blush I have is 'Luster' which is a gorgeous golden apricot colour with subtle shimmer so I thought i'd compare them to give an idea of how different it is.



To me, Torrid is a Reddish coral with golden shimmer, I am usually a little scared of red toned blushers but I think it works well on the skin and I love that it has that little bit of shimmer too.



You need a light hand as it is very pigmented but thats a good thing really! I just make sure to have a big powder brush to blend it all together afterwards.

I might mention this again when i've used it a little more as i'm still new to the colour but so far I really like it and i'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone =]

Please let me know what your fave NARS blush is - Im looking to grow my collection and would love to check out more! I think 'Madly' might be next!
