When it comes to makeup, as much as I do love Instagrammable, high end products, I’m also a sucker for a dupe. You can’t beat discovering a product that is pretty much identical to a high end one, but a snip of the price, especially if you get through products at the rate I do. There's been some controversy recently on social media about dupes, with some higher end brands getting annoyed at our high street faves copying them, but in my eyes it's a total compliment to the popularity of the product. Plus, only a small percentage of people can afford to spend a small fortune on cosmetics, so I think it's great that more affordable brands are offering versions of our favourite 'hero products.'

Today's skincare review has come from another social media inspired purchase- I just can't seem to resist when it comes to hearing about much hyped products on Twitter and Instagram! Much like what happened with the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette (read more about that here) I heard that The Ordinary Skincare had taken the beauty industry by storm, and that products were flying off the shelves, so I had to get involved and bought three products from the range.

Cleaning and drying my makeup brushes has to be one of my least favourite things to do. Not only do I find the cleaning part such a long chore, but being an impatient person, I also hate waiting for them to dry. I heard about the StylPro makeup brush cleaner on social media, and didn't quite believe that it would not only wash but also DRY my brushes in seconds...So, does it actually work or is it too good to be true?!

It's crazy how much seeing or hearing about a product on social media can literally push you into buying it, and I have to say that is definitely what happened to me with the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette.

Today's post is a different one for me, and one I have been meaning to write for a while now. Social media has invaded our lives over the past 10 years, and is now something that consumes us, and to an extent, we can't (or at least think we can't) live without. As a blogger, I use social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter daily, to amongst other things, help direct traffic to my blog, and although I do enjoy having a little scroll/ stalk at others pages, it does sometimes drive me mad. Today I thought I would have a little rant/ ramble about my biggest bugbears are when it comes to life online.

I'll admit it, I can be very fickle when it comes to my makeup bag. Like most beauty bloggers (and most women in general), I probably spend far too much of my money on makeup, whether it be a new lipstick shade, a gorgeous new palette (after all, who can resist a palette?) or just the latest cult product that keeps popping up on Instagram. Despite that, there are certain products that seem to have a permanent residence in my makeup bag, and today's post is all about these, and why I love them so much.
