These little babies are damnably delicious. A sinful mix of chocolate, sugar, spices, and gooey Nutella, this is the drink I'm reaching for this festive period - I can't get enough of it's spicy, Yuletide kick. So let's forgo any thoughts of healthy eating and get sipping on this divine concoction!

BLUSH & BLACK
HOLIDAY 2016 MAKEUP + OUTFIT

12 comments


For my second holiday look, I thought I'd veer slightly from the classic, pin up look and red lip that you'll have seen in my Classic Christmas Makeup post and go for something a little different - this is what I'm planning to sport for New Year's Eve! And want to know what my dress and shoes are? I've rarely spoken about fashion so far on BTB (except for my party dress picks for this holiday season here!) but today's post comes complete with my chosen outfit segment too!

CLASSIC CHRISTMAS MAKEUP.

I did say I wouldn't be doing a red lip this Christmas...

And I'm technically keeping my word because I've got another look coming up very shortly that's something a little different - but today I'm sticking to just about every Christmas Makeup cliche - a classic red lip and pin up eye #sorrynotsorry!

I've been dying to share today's post with you!

If you've not heard of Troiareuke, they're a Korean brand that's annoyingly difficult to get hold of in the UK, in fact no, outside of Korea. I had a go at it around 6 months ago, failed and forgot about it. New Troiareuke stockists for the western market (meaning we can now get it worldwide yasssss), KBeautyBay, recently got in contact, as if the answer to my woes, asking if I'd like to try some skincare - to which I said YES, I've been dying to for months! So today I'm excited to finally share how I've got on with my picks eek!

If there's something I've learnt over the last several years it's that it's not only OK to be fully selfish sometimes, but that it's behaviour to be encouraged! I think it's all too easy to people please, or to put others before yourself all the time - god knows I do it a lot - but you matter too. So today I'm sharing 10 things you should do for yourself, and encourage a little self love!

YURI PIBU ARTICHOKE SERUM + 5 WAYS TO HYDRATE YOUR SKIN THIS WINTER.

I think keeping your skin hydrated is really underrated. It's arguably one of the very most important things you can do for your skin - for overall skin health, to prevent premature aging and blemishes, and to alleviate acne, eczema and other skin conditions. Today we're talking about super-skin-hydrator, the Yuri Pibu Artichoke Essence ($38), available here at Glow Recipe (go check out their brilliantly curated selection) as well as 5 tips I use to hydrate my skin in the colder weather.

COSRX CLEAR SKIN DUO.

cosrx-aha-bha-power-liquid-review-acne-tips-korean-skincare

I'm sure it's no surprise to you, if you keep up with my skincare posts, that I love Cosrx. Their cleansers, moisturisers, masks, toners and serums I've tried are no fuss and high quality, gentle yet effective, with minimal fillers and unnecessary ingredients (I'm also giving away some Cosrx bits in my Giveaway which you can enter here!). Amazingly enough, I hadn't tried both their BHA Blackhead Power Liquid or AHA Whitehead Power Liquid until Buttermilk Skincare kindly provided me with the opportunity, and I hate to spoil the suspense but I feel completely compelled to write about them - they're fabulous!

THE AUTUMN MAKEUP *GIVEAWAY*

autumn-2016-giveaway-beauty-makeup-rosie-for-autograph

I fairly recently hit 2K on my Instagram and what with my recent birthday too, I feel in the mood for giving. For today's post I just want to say a huge thank you for the love and support I get here and on my Insta - some of the kinds of comments I get are really overwhelming and completely make my day, especially about my photography, it's something I really love doing and it's amazing to hear you love it too. To show my appreciation, I'm giving away a few of my current favourite things - including this stunner of a palette that I've been wearing non stop.

I reviewed this in full recently (which you can check out here), and think it's just the most divine palette. 6 eyeshadows, plus a bronzer, highlight and blush, all of the shades are gorgeous, wearable and great quality. I know Rosie For Autograph makeup isn't easily available outside of the UK so I wanted to give the opportunity for those of you elsewhere to get your hands on it!

Although the palette is the focus, I wanted to throw in a few other goodies, in the form of...

C O S R X   G A L A C T O M Y C E S   S E R U M   &   A H A   B H A   T O N E R

These two bottles of wonder are my favourite from the Cosrx line - I've talked about how incredible I find the AHA BHA Toner in this post with Before & After's. It really helps with acne, scarring and pigmentation whilst being the most gentle of formulas, I'm completely in love. The serum has an excellent formula, predominantly made of the same stuff as SKII's Facial Treatment Essence, and bolstered with niacinamide, Vitamin B5 and adenosine. It hydrates, brightens and contributes to anti aging, is suitable for all skin types and is one of my powerhouse favourites.

Reddened brown shades and nudey pinks have been my utter favourites during this autumn and the tone of Chocolate Cakes is just perfection. Blush Melba is a pretty springlike peachy, pastel pink - I adore the formula of the Autograph Argan polishes, they're probably the smoothest polishes I've ever tried.

I reviewed these in this post and fell in love with the liners - they really compete with Stila and Tom Ford, aka my all time, unchallenged favourites. I actually received two packages from Rimmel so, as I love the liners so much, am throwing the second bunch into this giveaway - you'll be receiving the two liquid liners and two mascaras.




a Rafflecopter giveaway

This giveaway is international and will run until midnight (GMT) on the 7th December 2016 - just in time for Christmas! At the end of the giveaway, I'll be contacting the winner via email (and social media if applicable) - they then have 48 hours to accept the goodies, otherwise I'll be choosing a secondary winner. As with my previous giveaway, if there are any issues sending the nail polishes overseas, I'll be sending Rosie For Autograph lipsticks in your choice of colours instead!


Thank you again and good luck!

RIMMEL THE ONLY ONE MATTE LIPSTICKS
REVIEW, SWATCHES + TRY ON.

20 comments

rimmel-the-only-one-matte-lipstick-review-barely-there-beauty-blog-flatlay

I'm really choosy with lipsticks - I'm desperately fussy with how things feel on my lips and I can't abide a bad formula, meaning I definitely lean towards high end lip products. The only drugstore lipsticks I've deemed worthwhile so far are the Essence Long Lasting lipsticks and Rimmel's The One One, and today we're playing with Rimmel's new launch - the matte counterpart to The Only One range, with nine shades to choose from. I've got all of them to swatch and try on for you so let's see if they stand up to the test!

It's almost been a year, can we believe, since the Rosie For Autograph makeup range launched and I went swatch happy in M&S (refer to this post for the full collection evidence of my swatch party), and I'm still just as utterly enamoured with the range as I was back then. Just in time for Christmas and all that, Rosie's given us a beautiful Eye and Cheek palette, available here, that I ripped open with earnest - read on for swatches and my thoughts!

WHAT'S IN MY MAKEUP BAG - FALL 2016 EDIT

makeup-beauty-flatlay-photography-barely-there-beauty-blog

These are some of my very favourite beauty blogger posts to read, and as my last one was a pretty long time ago, I thought today I'd do an updated edition - although, insider update, I shot these photos just before my birthday, so the YSL Couture Contour (full review here) and Tom Ford Shimmer Shot (full review here) have definitely since made the cut - let's just pretend they're gracing the edit with their presence.. Anyway, let's get cracking with what's in my autumnal makeup bag!

Today, I'm here with a full rundown of the Aromatica Sea Daffodil Aqua Gel Cream, first featured in my Kbeauty haul from Buttermilk Skincare.

Well hello beauties, the camera is fixed and I am back! (and thank you for your patience whilst I've been AWOL). If you've been with me a while here on BTB, you'll know that I am the harshest critic of mascara and liquid liners, an ardent and devoted supporter of just the one or two of each.

ON INSTAGRAM + UPDATES.

The moment when, as a blogger, you break your camera..

I wanted to give a little explanation as to why I might seem to be posting a little less frequently at the moment! I thought I was being really smart by wrapping the camera strap around my wrist because it's a heavy piece of kit and I didn't want to drop it whilst taking flatlays. Unfortunately, that backfired when I went to get more props and tripped over a cable on the way back.. So I'm currently checked into Heartbreak Hotel whilst I wait for it to be repaired, so apologies for posts being a little thin on the ground at the moment and thank you all for your patience - I'll get things going again as soon as I can!

In the meantime I'll share a few photos from Instagram lately, starting with some beautiful blooms from Blossoming Gifts. If you didn't see my full review, they were generous enough to give me the code BGIFTS33 for 33% off (from which I don't benefit btw!) your choice of beautiful bouquets, I plumped for roses (obviously) and I feel like I need some more, now that it's getting colder and more miserable!

Need to give a mention to my Grown Alchemist lipbalm, which is my new favourite friend - the watermelon scent is like the last piece of summer as the season wanes, and it moisturises my lips exceptionally - they've been chapped, dry and crappy lately and this is doing wonders.

As for posts, I wrote about rebooting your life in September, and even though we're now in October (birthday month eek!), all the tips are still relevant, so you may find it useful! Another set of tips is my 5 Favourite Ways To Feel Prettier - and they're all easy as pie. I'm going to do an updated what's in my makeup bag as soon as I can get some pictures down, but check out the third pic above (or my Insta) for some strong favourites.

To round things up, I want to show some love for Vee's array of beautiful highlighters including the Modern Mercury highlighter *swoon* - go and give her account a follow, so many gorgeous products.



Like I mentioned above, October means birthday for me, and I'm stuck with my wishlist! What makeup and skincare items are you lusting after?? Let me know in the comments below!

KOREAN SKINCARE DUPES

12 comments


I hinted at a second wave of dupes in Part 1 of my Korean Skincare Dupes, and today it's finally here! I'm really excited to share this post, as finding dupes in makeup and skincare is one of my most favourite past times, and the bunch I have today feel like a pretty good group.

6 TIPS TO REBOOT YOUR SEPTEMBER.

25 comments


beauty-makeup-flatlay-photography-tips-lifestyle

January might seem like the most obvious time of year for new resolutions but in practice it's quite possibly the worst! You feel the pressure of 'New Year New Start' and 'ruining' that if you slip up, you're mourning the festivities and comfort of the festive season and you've got a to-do list the length of your arm. I don't know if it's a school thing but I've always felt a natural opportunity to reconvene and reboot in September, so today I'm sharing 6 tips for making the most of the rest of your year.

HIGH END BEAUTY WORTH THE SPLURGE.

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I'm a sucker for high end beauty. But sometimes, the quality doesn't necessarily match the high price tag, so today I'm sharing a handful of my favourites that I think are really worth every penny.


AS-HEALTHY-AS-THEY-ARE-EASY
RASPBERRY CUPCAKES.

sugar-gluten-free-cupcake-recipe-clean-eating-healthy-easy

Sometimes, something a little sweet and unnecessarily dainty is just the thing we need. These little cakes are not only delicious but pretty damn healthy too, and will impress at any occasion.

Especially since my floral, rose-spiked Persian Love Cake, I've been really enjoying playing with cake and dessert recipes that are totally scrumptious but promise to be a little healthier for you, so today I wanted to share this recipe, adapted from my Nourish book, that really hits the spot. These cakes are nutty, sweet with fruit and full of nuts and fibre. They're an absolute doddle to whip up, and are gluten and refined-sugar free too!

As much as I adore summer, and I'm already getting sad at the shortening daylight hours, I'm so excited for autumn. I love the light, I love the weather, I love layering, and I love autumnal colours in fashion and makeup. Now that we've hit September, today I'm bringing you 7 beautiful lipsticks, to transition you from summer to fall, for every budget - whether you're looking to splurge, save or spend.

BLUSH CRUSH

10 comments

Img src: Pinterest

It's a quick post today - I wanted to give a little mention to fashion, as it's something I rarely talk about on the blog! I'm obsessed with blush tones at the moment. It's a colour that will take you from Summer to Fall - a floaty teadress or lacy crop in the warmer weather and a cream knit tucked into a blush leather skirt (isn't the little wrap one below just divine?!) when the temperature starts to drop. Today I'm sharing some nude-pink inspo to quench your blush appetite.


I'm totally in love with the leather wrap skirt, the sporty bra and Jasmine-esque pyjamas!

What are your faves??

NEW IN BEAUTY | WISHLISTING

7 comments

new-beauty-2016-fall-high-end-barely-there-beauty-chanel-teint-tenue

1. Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Compact Foundation | I'm so happy that Chanel are releasing some new foundations, as I really didn't think a lot of their Healthy Beiges foundation we had over the summer period. I actually really enjoy powder foundations, if they're good, and I have high hopes for this one as I adore Chanel powder formulas - a lot. It comes in 13 shades, which I think is pretty good going.

2. Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Liquid Foundation | If matte isn't so much your thing, there's a liquid version that promises to give you the same, flawless coverage and finish you're looking for. This one comes in 16 shades.

3. LOV Iconyx Eyeshadow Palette | This is for those of you on the continent - well, specifically Germany. How much does it look like the Hourglass eyeshadow palettes?! Fortunately for you guys though, this is a drugstore brand, meaning prices are going to be super affordable.

4. Dior Capture Totale Cushion Foundation | Obviously not content with Lancome and YSL bringing out a cushion, Dior have launched their own in the Capture Totale Dreamskin range. Infused with their skincare, and with the obligatory SPF 50+++, this retails at £60 - I'm really intrigued to see if it really warrants that price tag!

5. Kevyn Aucoin Bloodroses Palette | There are a lot of eyeshadow palettes in this edition.. and the first is this gorgeous jewel toned number from Kevyn Aucoin. I love the warm, pinkish theme to the shades and knowing Kevyn Aucoin, the formula is going to be just as sumptuous.

6. Cle De Peau Eye Colour Quad in Stellar Gaze | Not new to the market but these quads from Cle De Peau have been lingering on my wishlist for a little while now and I'm popping them into this edition in case you haven't seen them! Although they come in a number of shades, Stellar Gaze is a gorgeous array of golds and purpley tones that I can't ignore.

7. Charlotte Tilbury Dreamy Look Eyeshadow Palette | I'm always excited when there's something new from Charlotte Tilbury makeup, and the latest is this gorgeous eyeshadow palette containing 4 light, shimmery shades, including both warm and cool tones - that pinky shade in the top left looks ridiculously pretty.

8. Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette | I haven't been that excited about any of the Naked palettes frankly, but this new release seems like a really versatile, basics palette, full of matte shades with varying undertones, and including a couple of gorgeous warm, orangey, burgundy shades so I'm really excited about this one!

9. Diptyque Lip Balm | Diptyque have added a couple of new items to their skincare range, and I'm a sucker for lipbalms, so this immediately caught my eye. Whether it's any good or not, it's hard to resist the fully-instagrammable packaging right?

10. Tom Ford Lip Contour Duo | Love love love the concept of these. Another travel friendly and multifunctional product (I love their double ended correcting pen), these lip products come with a liner/shaper in one end with a creamy lipstick in the other. Available in 8 shades, I can't wait to try Show It Off.

11. Fresh Vitamin Nectar Face Mask | I've seen this doing the rounds on Instagram and I want it! A glucose based face mask chock full of citrus extracts to brighten and exfoliate skin, this is exactly the kind of mask I lust after, so really excited to try this one out.

12. Diptyque Infused Face Oil | Another item from the new additions at Diptyque, this face oil is infused with rose and rose petals, much like the Neogen rose cleanser that I've fallen a little in love with. Rose seems to work really well with my skin, and I can't pretend that I'm not attracted to the aesthetics of this bottle..


Alright I'm stopping there before my list snowballs into a silly length! Let me know, what's on your current wishlist?!
