Soap and Glory #Babesofglory Club

I could not believe my luck when I was accepted into the most girliest and coolest club ever! So recently Soap and Glory decided to make a club #Babesofglory and I still remember the day when they announced the application was online and ready to fill in, I gave it my best shot and I guess being a pink lover really helped because I got this shiny package through the post!

It's so nice when brands/companies make the effort to do something different and try to get bloggers involved, regardless of the amount of followers you may have. Sometimes it truly isn't about the numbers and I heard that S&G are one of the best when it comes to PR packages.

Once I opened the pretty silver parcel which was adorned with cute S&G stickers, I came across a very cute yet informative note along with my very own #Babesofglory pin! HOW DARN CUTE!? and not only that, I also received two mini skincare products, both of which are bestsellers! I don't know about you but if this isn't a fabulous welcome to the club parcel then I don't know what is.

I will be reviewing the products very soon, I have another parcel from the babes at S&G as we speak and I was sent five... yes five full sized skin care products to test and review so keep your eyes peeled for that very exciting unboxing post!

What is your favourite S&G product? I would LOVE to know!

Asda Lovebugs Cake Review

Time for another cute sweet treat review and this time I am reviewing the Love Bugs Cake which you can easily find in Asda! This is the second instalment in this series, I have previously reviewed a very adorable Pabs the Pug gift cake which you can view here - link

A p p e a r a n c e 
This really reminded me of the caterpillar cakes you can find in M&S and still Asda's take on the design is still very cute! You get two mini cakes in the pack. One being a boy caterpillar and the other a girl. These essentially are two medium sized chocolate roulette cakes but each one has a fondant face on the end. Each caterpillar has a sprinkling of cutely coloured sprinkles to truly finish the design off. 5/5

T a s t e:
If you have a huge sweet tooth then this is definitely for you! The cake and the frosting is oh so chocolately, it really reminds me of Cadbury mini rolls but with a more intense chocolate flavour. One slice is definitely not enough! The fondant faces were a bit too sweet for me so I didn't eat those. All in all for those who prefer the really sweeter things in life.  3/5

Q u a l i t y:
When you initially look at these cakes they look good, the chocolate coating is even, the sprinkles adds to the overall look and the fondant pieces brings the cakes together. For the price, it is very reasonable and a good pick for kid parties or for as a treat for one. The chocolate sponge could of been better though since it seemed a little dry. I liked this but I wouldn't repurchase it.  3/5

Have you tried these cute caterpillars?

NYX Lip Lingerie in 'Bedtime Flirt' Review

"Bedtime Flirt - Red toned pink"

You can never have too many liquid lipsticks. Fact. I have been collecting and loving liquid lipsticks for quite a while now but there wasn't any NYX in my collection... Until now! I don't even know why it took me so long to try one from NYX because this certainly isn't the last time I will buy from them! 

Slip into something seductive with Lip Lingerie, our new weightless liquid lipstick with a plush matte finish. Available in a range of colour-kissed nudes ‒ from cinnamon pink and chocolate brown, to warm mahogany red and classic nude beige - each sultry shade will coat the curves of your lips with irresistibly creamy colour.

Lingerie for your lips... The lip lingerie range launched back in 2016 and NYX added some more nude shades in 2017 making this a collection worth checking out since there literally is a nude shade for everyone! There are a whopping 24 SHADES AVAILABLE!! How amazing is that?!

I am already obsessing with this range because  as soon as I wore Bedtime Flirt for the first time, it literally felt weightless on my lips! Just like lingerie, the formula is ever so light on the lips and all the colours to choose from... *DROOLS*

This range definitely delivers precision ability and long lasting wear but with that being said it is bound to be drying.  Without the drying part there wouldn't be any colour transfer or smearing. I just dabbed on a very small amount of lipbalm before applying this and it was still actually ok! 

The formulation is amazing. I would describe these to have a mousse-like formula that feels air whipped and incredibly light. Once it dries, it doesn't dry to a matte finish but to a more velvety finish, which I prefer.

Boy! Were these able to last long! I was really amazed at both the colour pay off and the longetivity. You can really build up the colour intensity. When I applied one coat, this shade looked like my lip colour but better but then once I applied a good three coats I was able to see a gorgeous rosy cinnamon like shade. This is one of my all time favourite lip colours already and I definitely see myself reaching out to this often. The whole range has so many shades to choose from and I know If you see the whole range you would probably just stand and stare for a while since they can all look the same but there are all so different that can go with any skin tone. I am particularly liking the shades 'Lace Details' and 'Push Up' to buy next!!
I cannot recommend these enough and I know I'm pretty late in trying this range out but better late than never! NYX have also added a shimmer and glitter range within the collection so I know where I'm going to get some new lipglosses... There's even a clear gloss that has rainbow glitter in it!!! *heart eyes*

Do you have a favourite shade from this range? Comment the name of the shade below, I would love to know!

Lancome Competition Goodies*

So not too long ago I received sample sachets of Lancome's Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum to try and I really loved using it in my skincare routine. So like a week later I got an email saying to leave a review and that I would be entered into a lucky draw to win some Lancome goodies*
I left a review stating my real thoughts and experience whilst using the serum but I didn't think anything of the lucky draw. Days passed and I got a notification in my inbox saying that I was one of lucky reviewers who had won a goody bag. I was so ecstatic and it really made my day.
Read on to see the products I had won!

In total I received 4 minis and a very cute pink tote bag!

Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum 7ml
It was so nice to see this included because I could carry on using this in my skincare routine. This stuff really is amazing! The serum is said to give you really glowing and youthful looking skin as well as reducing any fine line and wrinkles. I really love this product because all skin types, ethnicities and ages can use this product!

Bi-facil Eye Make-up Remover 30ml
One of Lancome's best sellers. The Bi-facil Eye Make-up Remover is really gentle but effective at removing stubborn eye make-up. It doesn't leave any oily residue and it's even suitable for contact lens wearers. You simply shake this and the bi-phase formula get activated so that it can remove all traces of eye make-up.

La Vie Est Belle Body Lotion 50ml
A super hydrating and super moisturising body lotion with the gorgeous La Vie Est Belle signature scent. A luxurious product to use after a bath or shower with a scent that lingers on for quite some time. I love this!

La Vie Est Belle Eau De Parfum 4ml
A beautiful signature perfume by Lancome that has been created by one of France's leading perfumers. I have never smelt this perfume before and I can see why it is loved by many! 
An Eau de Parfum with the noblest ingredients, Concrete of Iris Pallida, Jasmin Sambac Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute, Patchouli Essence.
