Kat Von D and Too Faced Better Together Lip and Cheek Set

I know I normally do reviews and hauls but as soon as I opened this I had to make a post about it. I was very lucky to get the Kat Von D and Too Faced Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection for my birthday and I really like, in the palette you get six eye shadow colour which are really nice and so easy to work with and I really like the fact you get a full size of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and a full size of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. I really think if you have been eyeing up the palette then why not get it, yes it is a lot of money but it is a really nice palette. 

So Kat Von D and Too Faced also made a lip and cheek set together and I will tell you right now I dont think its worth you money. I had my eye on this set for some time but from reviews I watched about it I always thought the Too Faced size which is the cheek size just looked cheap and this is not a cheap set but I saw it was in offer on the Debenhams website so I thought I will get it because I have be eyeing it up for so long now and you get Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the lip side of this set. I have never tried any lip products by Kat Von D but I always wanted to try the Studded Kiss Lipsticks and even thought I really dont like liquid lipsticks I wanted to try the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick just to see what is was like compared to other ones I have tried and I love the colour of this one.

This set comes in a wee make up bag with one side all sparkly and pink with the Too Faced dog called Clover and saying Too Faced and the other side is matte black with Kat Von D's cat called Piaf and saying Kat Von D. This bag is in the shape of a heart.

Kat Von D's Side: On this size there is really nice products with really nice packaging, the Studded Kiss Lipstick and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick just feel like mini sizes of the really thing and I really like how they both look and feel. The Studded Kiss Lipstick is in the colour Muse which is a nude colour and I feel like I can see little bits of glitter in it, Im not a big fan of nude lipsticks but I will by trying this one out so I can see if I want to buy more for the Studded Kiss line. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick comes in XO which is a beautiful deep red colour and even thought I dont like liquid lipstick I cant wait to try this out. Im so happy with this side of the set, I like the fact there is a dark colour and then a more every day colour in here so I think it will be really good for a lot of people.

             XO                                                                Muse     
 Too Faced's Side: This side is were is all goes down hill for this set and its sad because I feel like on the Kat Von D's she put care and thought in to it and the bag this comes in even though Im not a big fan of it I can still till there was time put on to making it look the way they wanted it to look. On this side you get a mini Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder which comes in the colour Rosy Glow and you also get a mini Love Flush Long Lasting Blush in So Happy Together. The packaging for both the blush and highlighter feel cheap like kids make up, this is a high end make up company that made this side I dont expect the packaging to feel like kids make up. The Love Flush Long Lasting Blush is a bit to pink for me and I think might just look a bit weird on my skin tone but it looks like it will be really easy to blend in to the skin. The Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder is a light highlighter, when I first started using highlighters I only liked light ones but now Im a bit highlighting mad but only on my cheek bones so Im hoping this will give me a good highlighting glow and Im really looking forward to trying it out. I dont hate the products you get on the Too Faced side but it just feels very cheap and I know Too Faced is a lot more girly than Kat Von D but I normally really like Too Faced and their packaging. Did they just not care? Or did they really think this was nice? I have no idea but I do know this is really bad for something that costs so much money.

                     So Happy Together                                      Rosy Glow               

Im on the fence about the set, I love the Kat Von D side, I like the bag even though I will probably never use it but the Too Faced side feels like they could not be bothered and I think it lets this set down.

Lab With Love Box June 2017

So there is a new monthly beauty box on the scene and this is their first box. Lab with Love is a monthly beauty box for people with eczema, psoriasis, sensitive skin and other skin problems. There is 3 boxes each month that you can pick from which are 

Hydrate: This box would be good for people with dry or sensitive skin.

Protect: This box would be good for people with atopic skin and it will be filled with lots of lovely products that will help protect the skin. It should also help with flaky skin.

Soothe: This box is good for calming angry and red upset skin.

Lab with Love believe that just because you have skin problems that should not stop you from being pampered and trying new products to pamper yourself with. I love this idea, my skin is a lot calmer now than it ever has been so I am so lucky that my skin lets me try new products now, my skin is still dry and has eczema flare ups but nothing like it was a few years again and I cant even remember the last time I had to be covered in bandages to stop me from scratching but I do still remember how it felt using the same old boring creams every day and just wanting to try some new creams that I dont have to be scared to try. Thats why when I heard about this box I knew I really wanted to work with this company because they are doing something thats close to me heart so I sent them an email asking if they would like to work together and I got a reply saying that they are sending me a box and I was obviously not going to say no to that. I was so excited about getting a box but as always dont worry just because Lab with Love sent this box to me and I love the idea of this box that does not mean Im going to say this box is amazing if I dont think the products in the box are very good or worth the money spent on this box. 

After opening the box the first thing I noticed was there is not products info card which I think would be nice, on the Lab with Love website there is lots of info about the products that are in each box for the month but I just think a wee info card would have been nice so you know what the products are, where you can buy them if you are wanting to buy the product after trying after getting the box and how much the product would cost.

Now lets talk about that I found in my box 

Relivio Dry Skin Body Cream: I was happy about getting this because I was almost about to run out for body cream and I was planning on buying some more soon so good timing. This body cream is meant to help restore the skin barrier, its a non-greasy cream which is not sticky and its meant to be absorbed quickly by the skin. I have used this cream a few times since getting it and it has left my skin feeling very soft, it did absorb in to the skin not as quickly as some creams I like but I did not feel like I had to wait to long to put my clothes on after using it. The top of my back has been so itchy, dry and flaky for the last few months and no matter how much cream I have put on it just keeps coming back but since trying the cream the itching has almost completely gone away and the skin it feels so soft and a lot less dry. 

Conscious Skincare Grapefruit Lemon and Cedarwood Body Wash: I find it really hard to find body washes that I like and that dont dry out my skin but on the Lab with Love website it says this body wash has been "designed and carefully blended to work without drying your skin out." Im not very good at tell people what something smells like but the best way I feel like I can for this body wash would be its got a zesty fruity smell which I really like. I have not tried this body wash yet but the scent might not work for sensitive skin. This body wash is vegan, organic and cruelty free. 

Conscious Skincare Sweet Almond Oil: I keep hunting and hoping that one day I will find a facial oil that I like because any facial oils that I have ever tried I normal hate but this oil has no perfume and its rich in Vitamin E so this one might by the facial oil that I have been looking for so Im really looking forward to trying it out. This oil is also vegan and its not tested on animals.

Beauty by Earth Lip Balm: This lip balm just looking like a very simple lip balm but its smells amazing, its smells minty like toothpaste and I really like it. This lip balm contains coconut oil and shea butter to help keep your lips soft and healthy. Its also be certified organic. I use lip balm almost every day and I love the smell of this one so I will be using this.

This box coats £29 or you can subscribe and get 10% off which will then be £26.10 and you will get 4 - 5 full size products in each box.
