OFFICIAL SAVANA RAE: March 2018

THE ALIENWORK IK ELEGANT AND TIMELESS UNISEX QUARTZ WATCH MUST-HAVE

No comments:

We have all been inundated by marketing by Daniel Wellington pieces, to the point that the brand has become a well known brand amongst bloggers and those who follow us.


Realistically, not everyone has £100 or more to spend on a watch and if like me you like to own many it might not be ideal for your budget.

I love discovering brands which offer not only a great price range but also quality.

If you are looking for a sophisticated day to day watch then you have clicked on the right link.

Let me introduce to you the

Alienwork IK Timeless Design Men's/Women's Watch Ø40mm Stainless steel Milanese band in Black

Firstly and foremost at this price point you probably think you will be receiving the watch in a simple little plastic bag.

THAT IS DEFINITELY NOT THE CASE.


The watch is encased within a Grey rectangular pouch with a button opening with the Alienwork logo.

When you open this pouch you will to the left side have an upper pocket which contains the Alienwork business card and the lower pocket which is larger remains empty. The right side also exhibits two pockets and the lower pocket contains the actual watch.


This pouch is wonderful for carrying your watch around and making sure it doesn't get any scratches on the dial.


The pouch is in turn sealed within a zip bag semi transparent bag with the Alienwork logo.

I am impressed with the quality of the watch, it actually looks and feels expensive.

"Rest assured that if you are looking for a Daniel Wellington dupe look no further."

Alienwork IK Timeless Design Men's/Women's Watch Ø40mm Stainless steel Milanese band in Black

This particular model has a minimalist design and a sleek finish. It has an analogue and round display.

The key to the success of this design is that it is ultra-thin. The casing is 8mm thick making the profile very low and not thick. The casing diameter measures 40mm, which either makes either a great large women’s watch or small men’s one.

Making it ideal for those of us who love to wear a watch everyday without having a bulky and heavy timepiece to carry around. It is very comfortable to wear and I am in love with how it looks.

This model is built from high quality Japanese stainless steel quartz. This means that it is strong and lasting.

The dial window is produced with mineral crystal which means that it will help resist scratches.

This black finish is very stylish with the detailing on the slim watch hands and hour markers. The casing itself is made of stainless steel with a shiny black plating.


The watch operates on a Japanese quartz movement. Quartz movements tend to be used for it to have accuracy.

The strap is made of a stylish black stainless steel and fastens with an adjustable hook buckle. It measures 20mm across which is proportional to the watch sizing.

I was amazed with how easy it was to adjust the strap size and fits on my tiny wrist without having to bring it to a professional for resizing.


 However, watch your nails when you first adjust it.

This watch has a 3 bar rating making it resistant to only rain or splashing. It is not to be worn during showers nor swimming.

I personally chose the Black model as I am very fond of black accessories. This model comes in an ulterior 3 different colours.

1. Silver with a black dial and black detailing.

2. Blue with a blue dial and rose gold detailing.

3. Silver with a white dial and silver detailing.


What I like to do is, wear it in a public setting with people I know and see what remarks they will make.

Everyone I asked actually loved it as it's a piece you can where everywhere and match with everything.

I am besotted with how luxurious it looks and how well it fits on my incredibly small wrist.

I recommend this watch to all those who don't want to break the piggy bank but still love the finer things in life. 

"A TRUE GEM TO OWN"


What do you think of this particular watch?

"I received these products complimentary for testing purposes."

All opinions are truthful and my own.






LET'S DUPE IT WITH THE RELOADED ICONIC DIVISION MAKEUP REVOLUTION EYESHADOW PALETTE

No comments:

Makeup Revolution is such an interesting drug store brand, they have an incredible amount of variety to offer and for the fraction of the price in comparison to other of their competitors.


However with time and with use of their products, I have noticed that Makeup Revolution is becoming a big contender who is able to compete with the big names out there.

I am not going to lie, for how affordable these products are, the quality is unreal. For example, today I have decided to review the RELOADED ICONIC DIVISION

Closed Reloaded Iconic Division by Makeup Revolution palette

I want to tackle the price point first of all. Bare in mind that this palette is £4. 

I know shocking, ONLY £4. Which you may purchase from the following

It comes in a plastic see through casing with the REVOLUTION, MAKEUP REVOLUTION LONDON logo in copper.

The palette contains 15 eyeshadow shades. 

Open Reloaded Iconic Division by Makeup Revolution palette

Each containing 1.1g of product. So do the maths, extremely affordable for such a quantity of product.

The shades range from neutrals, warm and cool tones.
You have 12 matte shades and 3 shimmer shades. 


As soon as I saw this palette I was totally in love with the shades I saw, especially the brunt orange and yellow shades. 

The palette shades have no names so I will refer to them by rows.

FIRST ROW

first row without flash of the Reloaded Iconic Division by Makeup Revolution palette

1. PINK OFF WHITE SHIMMER
Chalky and light but is buildable in order to get good pigmentation showing through. I would use this shade for the inner corner of the eye, eyebrow bone or on top if a light eyeshadow base. I found that this one did not apply well WITHOUT a brush.

2. LIGHT PEACH MATTE
Creamy pigmented matte. This would look beautiful on the eyelid. Such a pretty shade.

3. DARK OLIVE GREEN MATTE
Creamy and buildable. I can see this also as great crease shade.

4. COPPER SHIMMER
EXTREMELY PIGMENTED, that swatch was done with one swipe!!!!!! Such a beautiful and smooth shade. 

5. LIGHT BROWN/GREYISH
Very pigmented and creamy.

SECOND ROW

second row without flash of the Reloaded Iconic Division by Makeup Revolution palette

1. DARK GREEN MATTE
Very pigmented and rich

2. DARK BURGUNDY MATTE
Very pigmented but on the powdery side.

3. ORANGE MATTE
Personally I love this shade and found it was also very pigmented.

4. YELLOW SHIMMER WITH A HINT OF SILVER GLITTER.
A glitter which is light but again you are able to build it up.

5. WARM BROWN MATTE.
Very pigmented and powdery shade.

THIRD ROW

third row without flash of the Reloaded Iconic Division by Makeup Revolution palette

1. BURNT ORANGE MATTE
2. BURNT YELLOW MATTE
3. WARM GREEN MATTE
4. DARK PURPLE MATTE

These top 4 shades are very pigmented and powdery. I was most excited about the Burnt yellow, probably the colour that invited me in to want it.

5. CHARCOAL BLACK MATTE

third row with flash of the Reloaded Iconic Division by Makeup Revolution palette


I was so impressed with how creamy this shade was and how pigmented it was in only one swipe.


I enjoyed creating this look below with this palette. That BURNT YELLOW is to die for. Look at it. 
If you want to see how I created this look


Makeup Look created with the Reloaded Iconic Division by Makeup Revolution palette

I am so excited with the variety of colours on this palette and how creamy I found them as I swatched them. There is fallout with some of the matte shades and also I found that some of three hues of green are incredibly similar.

I did notice as many of us already noticed that it could well be a Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette Dupe. A lot of the shades are truly similar but bear in mind that the mattes are VEY DUSTY. 


Did I think this palette was worth it? Hell yes!!!!!!!!!!!! For £4, I would definitely purchase it.


THE MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX -THE COMPLETE BRAND FOCUSED SELF CARE PACKAGE

No comments:

This months Birchbox has been themed around self-care and the importance of taking that much needed time to pamper yourself.


MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX FLATLAY

It is so important to take time for yourself to unwind. I have a busy daily schedule but always try to create windows of opportunity to make sure I take good care of my body.


BLAQ - HYDROGEL EYE MASK


Retailing at £22 for a set of 5. This is 1 of 5.


BLAQ - HYDROGEL EYE MASK MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX


This product is carbon based and besides being natural it smells wonderful. It promises to give tired and dull eyes a much needed hydration. Once hydrated, glow is a guarantee.

It is pretty simple to use, all you need to do is cleanse your face and under-eye, remove the film on each patch and apply 1cm below each eye. It is recommended to leave them in between 30 minutes and 8 hours.


BLAQ - HYDROGEL EYE MASK MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX


BENEFIT - BADgal BANG! VOLUMISING MASCARA


Retailing at £21.50 for the full size mascara.


BENEFIT - BADgal BANG! VOLUMISING MASCARA MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX

This is where space technology meets the cosmetics universe. Yes, seriously. No word of a lie. This mascara was created with "aero-particles". Benefit cosmetics were able to extract a powder based around NASA advanced technology.

The wand is cone-shaped which is crucial as it will work on all eye shapes. The wand contains 300 bristles. On one side they appear flat whereas on the other side appear curved. This gives mascara application more lash surface coverage from the root to the tip.


BENEFIT - BADgal BANG! VOLUMISING MASCARA MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX

The actual mascara formula promises lash volume without clumping thanks to the aero-particles used to produce it. Luckily it is smudge proof and no hard workout nor cry out will allow it to budge. So bring out the hardcore makeup removers for this one.

My favourite quality of this particular mascara is that it contains Vitamin B5. This helps condition lashes and nourish them. This is a very important quality for me.


GLAMGLOW - SUPERMUD CLEARING MASK TREATMENT


Retailing at £42 for the full size mask.

 
GLAMGLOW - SUPERMUD CLEARING MASK TREATMENT MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX
GlamGlow is a company that besides creating a very successful dermatological empire which is known throughout social media, has created very innovative but useful products.

I am sucker for masks, so I was extremely excited when I saw that this brand was included in the Birchbox.

One major factor that has dissuaded me from purchasing it has always been the price point. Do they just have a very advanced and talented marketing team? Or are they truly worth us splurging on their products?

The SUPERMUD clearing treatment mask is clinically developed. They promise it will help skin issues and give you guaranteed clearer skin.

As you know I wear makeup on a regular basis and this always has a toll on my skin especially if I end up creating more looks in one day or testing new products.

I am excited to get this opportunity to give you the low down on this particular mask.

I am ecstatic to let you know that thanks to the use of real Eucalyptus Leaf in their formula, you shall glow. The technology behind this formula also allows deep pore extraction. Yes!!!!!!!

Say goodbye to enlarged pores!!!!!! 

This can also be used on your problem areas not only on the whole face. Hence, your t-zone or single spot breakouts.

The mask smells of a mix of eucalyptus, liquorish and a mud undertone. It is of a dark grey in colour. The consistency is creamy but dries completely out.  


BEAUTY PROTECTOR- PROTECT AND VOLUME


Retailing at £21.50 for the full size hair protector.


BEAUTY PROTECTOR- PROTECT AND VOLUME MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX

My first reaction when I smelled this was WOW THAT SMELLS INCREDIBLE. 

I can't get over how great it smells. It is a sweet scent almost like a very expensive perfume. 

"It is known to be the best-selling detangler  and is known to boost hair with volume." 


Great news, it is vegan and a paraben-free formula. 

Time to thicken my mane with this sweetly divine spray.

NUXE - REVE DE MIEL BODY SCRUB 


Retailing at £19.50 for a full size scrub.


NUXE - REVE DE MIEL BODY SCRUB MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX

This is definitely one to add to your pamper list. It smells of honey essence infused with essential oils . They have used sugar crystals and rice grains to give it that exfoliating quality. 

The importance of a scrub is that you are getting rid of dead cells , allowing your skin to look radiant.

NUXE is well known for their fragrance and if you love to smell wonderful this is the product for you.

NUXE - REVE DE MIEL BODY SCRUB MARCH 2018 BIRCHBOX CLOSEUP

"I did feel my skin looked radiant and well nourished. This one product to look out for."


All in all, this month's beauty subscription is TRULY worth it.

Especially if like me you rather test these before purchasing the full size corresponding product. I really enjoyed this month's pamper pack as it truly met my needs and expectations.

Great job Birchbox UK on this particular one. You have really knocked it out the park.

If you follow my blog or personally know me you will be aware I value the importance of helping out in general. Sometimes, I have so many projects going on that I need time to slowly accept more collaborations of this sort.
wulf fitness logo help clothe the homeless uk
Wulf Fitness was founded by TOM LEACH with the intention of creating a charity-focused brand.

I love brands that use their position in the market to help the less fortunate.

Not only do they provide this charity pillar but they also provide high quality clothing and accessories. It is a fitness inspired brand which should be great also at keeping you on track with your fitness.

I would personally also look to wear this piece as casual wear.

The central question here and the most important one is HOW CAN WE HELP SUPPORT A CHARITABLE CAUSE THROUGH WULF FITNESS.


It a simple and generous. It is the 1 FOR 1 initiative.

What does this mean?


Basically for every single item sold one is donated to someone in need.
How awesome is this? You buy for example a jumper and you know you just donated one to someone who truly needed it, keeping them clothed and warm.

Pretty simple, no catches, no extra payments.

Wether it's purchasing or bringing light wether through your social media channels or word of mouth you can help this great cause.
