I was lucky enough to qualify for the Marc Jacobs Beauty VoxBox from Influenster and John Lewis and I was not disappointed.

This was the first Voxbox I qualified for and I felt like a child when the box arrived.

I received 2 shades, (Pop)ular & Over(night).

(Pop)ular is a dark pink shade which matches my current hair very well! The packaging is sleek and luxurious and the pencils are slim, with a twist design so no need to hunt for the sharpener! (Hallelujah). The formula is really creamy, easy to apply and doesn’t smear or run, I rubbed my eyes, sweated at the gym and it survived it all!

My ultimate favourite eyeliner has now changed to the Over(night) shade. A deep blue with the same creamy texture and is also gym proof. I now prefer this to black liner and it feels so nice!

With 12 shades to choose from, easy application, luxury formula and packaging they are definitely worth £20 each!

They are a new kit staple cannot wait to use them more and collect more shades 💋

Braving Brunette

Saturday 17th June 2017 – returning to the dark side.

A few weeks ago I woke up and thought I need to dye my hair – I do have these impulsive moments and I usually end up on some spontaneous trip somewhere last time it was for a piercing.

I decided I wanted to return to the dark side after a very long hiatus from the hair dye. I had spent the past 3 years maybe a bit longer letting my hair be healthy and dye free and grow without as much damage. A couple of months before this thought I had another spontaneous moment and got the right side of my hair shaved into an undercut! (Britney Spears moment – pre-break up).

So on this thought of going brunette I messaged my hair dresser, Michelle, of about 20 years and asked whether it was a good plan and she encouraged me to go buy the dark brown casting creme gloss by L’oreal as it’s semi-permanent and it keeps your hair in good condition. Whilst in Newcastle I popped into Asda and it was on offer £5 per box I needed two.

I returned to Leeds after the weekend away and ensured I completed a patch test ready for the next weekend when I was heading back home to Grimsby/Cleethorpes. Saturday 17th I rocked up at 4pm to my hairdressers; boiling in the heatwave, boxes in hand and she applied it for me (if i did it myself it would be patchy -i’m not good). 1 hour later the transformation was complete!

The colour had taken better than either of us imagined it would have done and it was pretty much black – being-semi permanent it is now a super dark brown after a few washes.  But I love the change. My blue eyes stand out more with dark hair. I couldn’t recommend the L’oreal Casting Creme Gloss more, my hair is still in amazing condition and although the colour went black at first it is now a dark brown as stated on the box!

Check out the transformation below:
