Shop Small Businesses | Tara Cosmetics

Hi lovelies, hope you all are well!

Today's post is about small business appreciation. The other day I was browsing local makeup businesses and this one really caught my eye. The pink aesthetic, the handmade lipglosses and the way Tara Cosmetics advertised her products. It wasn't even my intention to buy anything but then within the next minute, I added two lipglosses into my cart and I am so glad I did. 

Tara has really put so much effort into her packaging too! I love how everything matched so well, from the ever so cute pink paper bag, thank you stickers, the business card and the extras that came in my parcel too. It's so nice when businesses add a lil extra. I got two adorable stickers and a jolly rancher candy, how sweet?!

Now onto the actual lipglosses, I chose the strawberry shortcake (on the left £2.80) and floral (on the right £2.49) I really adore both of these, the strawberry shortcake is super moisturising and has the most yummiest scent ever, smells just like sweet strawberries and the scent isn't even overpowering. This has a slight light pink tint but it comes out slightly clear on the lips. The cute strawberry decals adds a nice touch and makes it a visually pretty product to look at. I love how you can choose which packaging you want the lipgloss to come in, I chose the candy tube.
Floral is such a stunning gloss, this rose scented gloss is so hydrating and I love how you can see the dried rose petals and gold leaf. When I checked the ingredients, I was amazed that it didn't even contain that many things, just good old fashioned natural/organic oils and flavourings.
The price is just right because you get quite alot of gloss for the price and for the effort that is put into making these. Tara Cosmetics also sells other aesthetically pretty lipglosses and body butters so it's a lovely range of face and body products to try out.

I would definitely recommend checking out Tara Cosmetics, there is something for everyone and you wouldn't be disappointed! I love my products so much and I keep my lipglosses in my purse at all times.

Until next time! Take care you lovely lot! xx

Boots Beauty Haul

Hi lovelies, hope you all are well!

Bringing it back to what I love to post, a haul! A while back I visited my Boots store to simply pick up a pack of face wipes but then I ended up browsing the make-up section and I came back with some new products *major face palm*

It ok though since there was on offer on many brands plus I needed a new eyebrow pencil. You honestly just cannot win. 

So here's a round up of what I bought!

Soap and Glory Archery Pencil in 'Brown'

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in 'Birthday Suit'

Frank Body Original Lip Scrub

Soap and Glory Archery Pencil £6.66* was a third off!

I really love S&G but one product I didn't try was this. It was meant to be because only these were on offer and the shade matches the colour of my brows. On one side of the pencil you have the highlighter that is used to create the illusion of higher and tidier brows and the other, a brow shade to fill and define the brows. The formulation is very workable, creamy and a great product to use on the go.

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in 'Birthday Suit' £2.49* was half price!

I have heard great things about Sleek's lip products and seeing as they were half price so why not. I opted for the shade Birthday Suit and it is such a me kinda shade. A warm nude rose pink that applies beautifully and is very pigmented! This is Sleek's no 1 best selling lip product and I can definitely see why! It feels super light and you don't even have to build up the colour. A great addition to my collection and I will, for sure check out the other colours.

Frank Body Original Lip Scrub £11.95

A lip scrub was on my to buy list, I have heard of Frank Body before but I have never tried anything from them. This lip scrub is so nice! Smells like coffee beans  and doesn't feel harsh when scrubbing. It's a good size and great for travelling with too! This Australian beauty company has such a cute pink aesthetic and this lip scrub is loved by many. It's even cruelty free! 

So that was my mini and very accidental beauty haul haha! Have you tried any of the products that I have bought? Comment below!
