No comments:

The lovely team at Beakey has sent me over a set of beauty blenders and a complete set of make-up brushes inclusive of a beauty blender and brush cleaner.


BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

To my surprise the packaging was very convenient.

I wanted to make clear that this is the ONLY EU OFFICIAL SUPPLIER so do not get them anywhere else as there are fakes out there.


The set of 5 beauty blenders come in a sealed bag as do the set of 10 make-up brushes, sponge and brush cleaner.

BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

I particularly love how colourful the beauty blenders are.


Beakey provides well made and affordable brushes for any make-up level. 


I find that these are best suited especially if you are starting out and coming to grips with the use of each brush type.


The five piece set of beauty blenders retails at only £8.99. 


These are available for purchase on Amazon which means that if you have Amazon prime , you can get them on free next day or same day delivery.

BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

The makeup sponges come in the colour variations of: yellow, blue, pink, hot pink and purple.

There's a colour to suit every taste.


The make-up sponges are latex free and cruelty free!!!!!!!!!!


They are very soft and work well with all types of make-up consistencies, wether these are liquid foundations, powders or bb creams.

BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

I particularly love using make-up sponges because they tend to lay foundation on more efficiently than brushes and you need less technical movement to get the same finish.

However, bear in mind that brushes work well with other foundations as they soak up less product generally!

Remember that blenders can be used either wet or dry!


When I use the blender for foundation or concealers , I find that you get better results if you wet the sponge before make-up application.

BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

Do not wet the sponge if you are going to set your face with the blender and a powder.


The powders can be precisely applied with the beauty blenders.

I was asked my instagram followers to compare the Beakey Beauty blender to the Real Techniques beauty blender and except for the angular shape I didn't find any noticeble difference for applying make-up between the two!!!!!

BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

What does that mean???????????? That you can save a load of money because you can get the same result at a lesser price.

I love that the beauty blenders are travel friendly and easy to clean.



These are premium synthetic brushes that retail at only £8.99 and come in either black and silver.


BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

This price point includes the Beakey beauty blender and brush cleaner.

The price point got me floored!!!!! Ten brushes , a beauty blender and brush cleaner made so affordable!


Not everyone wants to go for extremely high price points when purchasing their make-up tools.

BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

The set of ten brush has the BEAKEY original and official logo on it.

You get 10 brushes to perfect your base.

If you are just starting out this is a great and worthwhile set to start off with.


The brushes are very soft and synthetic. In terms of shedding, I have noted any as of now. So yuppie for that.

I thought it would be useful if I show you each brush individually just to give you an idea of what to use each one for.

BLOOMING BRUSH


BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

This applies foundation and cream in harder to reach areas.

These are their recommendation for optimal usage. However, I do find you can use the smaller brushes for eye make-up blending as they blend product fairly well.


BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW


All the brushes work well with all forms of make-up whether it's liquid, powder or cream textures.


The sponge include is a hot pink sponge and as per the 5 piece set above , it's the same and allows you to have the choice between using a brush or a beauty sponge.

BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

The brush cleaner is a must in all of our make-up routines. 


It is made out of high quality silicone and provides the brushes with a good canvas for efficient cleaning.

FINAL VERDICT


I want to thank Beakey for giving the perfect kit for perfecting my make-up base!!!! 

BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

If like me you like doing make-up looks then you will know that you can never have too many blenders and make-up brushes.


I like the black design I was sent out and how well the sponges perform. I particularly like the design of the sponges which are the perfect size for both your whole face and the under eye area.


The amount of sponges gets me so many uses so I am so excited to have so many now.


BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

I think quality versus price is outstanding as they are super affordable and well worth the price point.


If you are looking for AFFORDABLE make-up tools than Beakey is the one to watch out for.

Beakey is great for make-up beginners as well as for a bit more advanced application.

BEAKEY BEAUTY BLENDER SET AND MAKE-UP BRUSHES REVIEW

So you should purchase them elsewhere , you may well be getting counterfeit and disappointing products.

30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM

No comments:
With all the brands that are floating around there is no doubt that there can be some concern as to which one would work best.


XLASH have been so kind to provide me with their Xlash Serum.


Use the code SAVANA20 for 20%off at Xlash online. 


30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM

If you have been following my journey with Xlash you will notice that I have previously reviewed their Xlash Mascara.


I was really impressed with their mascara and I was so excited to try their Xlash Serum to have even better results.

30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM

Bear in mind that my eyelashes are short and I wouldn't say they are curved.

The Xlash Serum retails at £37.99.


XLASH offer worldwide delivery.

THE PACKAGING


Xlash never seems to disappoint when it comes to product packaging.

Their attention to detail is impeccable and you can rest assured that they make their products worthy of being the perfect gift.


30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM

The Xlash Serum comes enclosed in a blue magnetic casing with gold detailing.

Engraved within is the following inscription:

LIFE IS SHORT, YOUR LASHES SHOULDN'T BE.


30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM

I also love how the have a void seal to ensure you have an original and unopened product.

30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM


THE FORMULA


The Xlash Serum formula makes it safe to use with eyelash extensions, gives lashes growth within a 28 day period and they report a 70% increase in eyelash growth.

The science behind the Xlash Serum makes lashes longer, thicker and darker.


This product is clinically tested and proven to work so this got me extremely excited to test it and put it through its paces.

30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM

Don't worry the Xlash Serum is cruelty free and hypoallergenic.


Bear in mind that Lashes have a growth cycle which the Xlash serum speeds up.

You have to give it a chance of at least 3-5 weeks to get noticeable results.


The Xlash serum ensures that Lashes are kept moisturised so that Lashes don't break off or fall out.


30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM

Don't forget to always take off your Mascara as mascaras dry off your Lashes drastically hence hindering lash growth.


The keratin will promote growth and the hyaluronic acid will ensure regeneration! These are natural active components.

30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM

HOW TO USE THE XLASH SERUM


I have included a small how to get the best results with Xlash serum. It is important that you follow these to get the desired results.

30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM HOW TO


THE FINAL VERDICT


I did a 30 day challenge with the Xlash serum where I use it every single evening before going to bed.

I carried out all the steps of the HOW TO on a daily basis.

Initially I did not see any growth and I was about to give up, but then quite literally on the fourth week boom my lashes were looking double the length and also fuller.


I could not measure the length but as you can tell by the before and after comparison there is a huge difference.

BEFORE AND AFTER 30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM


It's crazy when I look at the before and after with the Xlash Serum because it's such a dramatic difference. If you look at the Day1 shot you can barely see the Lashes whereas at day 30 they are clearly visible and what a result! 

If you are looking to get longer and fuller Lashes the Xlash serum can help you achieve this but remember that results will be clear after 3-5 weeks depending on your lash type. 


Make sure you apply the Xlash Serum daily and as per the how to, in order to get the best results. 

I can't vouch for Lashes getting darker as mine are black.

30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM


I don't want to discontinue use as I know from past experiences with eyelash serums, they cease working once you stop using them. 

I have seen an exponential growth in my Lashes, they also look fuller and slightly curled. 

I am very happy with my eyelash results and I am so happy to share this gem with you.


30 DAY CHALLENGE WITH THE XLASH EYELASH SERUM


Xlash also offers the carbon black eyeliner and mascara which you can read all about here on my website.


Have you tried any eyelash serum that works? Are you for or against?

THE UGLY TRUTH SERIES - RELATIONSHIPS RED FLAGS AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T IGNORE THEM

No comments:

If there is anything I learnt from my past toxic relationship is that RESPECT is at the base of everything and surpasses even love.


Respect and love go hand in hand , I never actually noticed this, I used to think that as long as you had "love" or what I perceived as love respect was something I was willing to compromise on.

THE UGLY TRUTH SERIES - RELATIONSHIPS RED FLAGS AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T IGNORE THEM

Thinking about this now makes me think Oh god what the hell was I thinking compromising on respect???are you serious! It's just blows my mind!

I was the typically stressed out partner who was googling signs on spotting if your partner is cheating on you!


These are relationship flags you should never ignore nor find excuses for!!!!!!!!!! 


If the below behaviour patterns are contast this is definitely a time to reconsider your relationship with that person!!!!!!!!!!



1. STARTS AVOIDING SPENDING TIME WITH YOU


THE UGLY TRUTH SERIES - RELATIONSHIPS RED FLAGS AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T IGNORE THEM

When a relationship starts off, you will in general be spending a considerable amount together, getting to know one another.

Then real life gets in the way, where jobs, family and friends come into play.

Did your partner spend their free time with you and then all of a sudden started to spend less and less time with you?????????


Well this will be a warning sign that your partner consciously chooses not to spend time with you!!!!!!

I DON'T WANT TO HEAR EXCUSES!!!!!!! I know for a fact for example that when a man wants to spend time with you he will cross oceans and the same goes for women!!!!!!!!!!!

Whilst it's good to spend time with others too, it's not healthy for a couple to not spend free time together and defeats the object of being together!!!!!!!!


When you experience life together , you built memories, trust and a deeper connection!!!!!!!!!

If you start spending less and less time together, people grow and you won't vibe as well because you are becoming strangers!!!!!!!! I am talking about people that exhibit this behaviour on a daily basis!!!!!!!!

This is a red flag that many couples ignore but that shouldn't go unnoticed.


Seems to have time for everyone or everything except for you 

2. KEEPS DISTANCE FROM YOUR FAMILY


THE UGLY TRUTH SERIES - RELATIONSHIPS RED FLAGS AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T IGNORE THEM

This for me is a HUGE red flag. Does your other half not make AN ACTIVE EFFORT with your close family???????????


This goes to show a lot about their character.

If you love someone , why would you not want to impress the other half's family or at least try.

It is very common to have a difficult time with the other persons family but when you love someone for the sake of the love you share you put in the work with their family!!!!!!!!!


Is your partner not making an effort to come to family get togethers? Do they come up with excuses after excuses? Are they not making an effort to be cordial especially when there is a special occasion?

Well, this is definitely a cause of concern!!!! When someone loves you they will go all out to gain approval from the other half's family!

Don't let their excuses fool you they will give you a million reasons why they are not doing this!!!!!!!

3. DOESN'T SHOW RESPECT


THE UGLY TRUTH SERIES - RELATIONSHIPS RED FLAGS AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T IGNORE THEM

Ok this is a big and key topic!!!!!!!! RESPECT!!!!!!!!!

When I mention respect, I mean respect in how they speak to you, how they treat you in front of people and especially how they treat you when you are alone together!!!!!!!

Respect boundaries should be set from the get go!!! You should speak to each other with respect and treat each other with respect!!!!


A big red flag for me and I still remember it to this day is being at my other half's family home and being shouted at with both families there for a truly trivial reason!!!!!! (for those that are dying to know I was simply asking him where he was going and he became irate!!!!!!!!!)


Under NO CIRCUMSTANCE should ANYONE (wether female or male) accept their partner physically abusing them in any way!!!!!


NO HITTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is grounds for an immediate break-up in my eyes!!!!!!!!! Never give someone a chance after this!!!!!! It is unacceptable behaviour!!!!!!!!!

Then there's also those who abuse you mentally!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Psychological abuse is also something you should be aware of and not accept!!!!!!

4. IS NOT AFFECTED BY YOU GETTING UPSET


THE UGLY TRUTH SERIES - RELATIONSHIPS RED FLAGS AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T IGNORE THEM

Does your other half have no compassion for your feelings? This is something that should get you really thinking about things!!!

When you love someone you want their happiness and all you want is to see the other person happy!


Sometimes out of love and the key to making a relationship work is COMPROMISING!

Is you other half trying to make you consciously happy and trying to make you feel better about yourself?

The same goes for you! Do you try to make your other half happy? It's a two street!

You should worry in the case that they have upset you and they don't seem bothered at all!!! This is a big one!!!!! 


How can someone love you and not feel bad for hurting you or your feelings?

5. GIVES YOU REASONS TO DOUBT THEM


THE UGLY TRUTH SERIES - RELATIONSHIPS RED FLAGS AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T IGNORE THEM

In this case by reasons to doubt them I mean a range of scenarios:

1. Coming home late for no apparent reason!

2. Sleeping elsewhere without even letting you know!

3. Being secretive with their phone!

4. Lying about where you they are or where they are going!

5. Finding random reasons to fight with you just so they can get out.



The list is endless , but basically anything that is it of the ordinary on a regular basis!


6. DOES THINGS FOR EVERYONE EXCEPT YOU


THE UGLY TRUTH SERIES - RELATIONSHIPS RED FLAGS AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T IGNORE THEM

Your partner seems to put everybody's needs before yours.

In this scenario , he also puts himself regularly before you!

His and her own needs come first rather rather than being reciprocated. your partner needs also do!


Don't ignore all these relationship flags!

A relationship is a two way street and what gives it the right fundamentals to withstand life is sticking to core values.

The core values include: respect, loyalty , being truthful, compromising and having eachother happiness at heart!


I urge you to not settle for anything less!

THE UGLY TRUTH SERIES - RELATIONSHIPS RED FLAGS AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T IGNORE THEM

Don't settle for the first person you meet our lower your standards when it comes to respect or loyalty just because you are worried to be on your own or not to find someone new!

When you leave space for someone who deserves you instead of waisting your time on someone who doesn't, you don't know what the future has in store for you!
