Nails Inc - Sparkle Like a Unicorn Nail Polish Duo


I am loving the new mermaid/unicorn looking nail trend at the moment, so when I spotted the Nails Inc Sparkle Like a Unicorn duo I was all over it. I think it must have popped up in my instagram feed but as soon as I clocked the shades I knew I had to snap them up. They are just very unique, and look so eye-catching on, you'll see what I mean later on.

April Favourites


For me, this month has been all about skincare. I have been trying a few new products and switching up my routine a little. I am still trying out a few facial oils that I'm liking so far, but haven't been using long enough yet to give a proper opinion on them.
If you follow me on Instagram (@zoelou_) you may also see I have developed quite a problem with buying highlighters...I just feel like I have to try every single one going haha -I need help seriously!

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil


I have really started getting more into my skincare recently, so decided to delve into the brand Kiehl's a little bit more. I have heard such great things about the facial oils (Midnight Recovery and Daily Reviving) so I decided to have a little explore on my recent visit to Selfridges. The lady working there was very helpful, and did a skin test on me to find out my skin type. I was told that I was quite oily so recommended me lots of useful products to help with that.
All I knew was I wanted to try either the Daily Reviving Concentrate or the Midnight Recovery oil...honestly I was ages deciding! but I opted for the night time one and I'm loving it so far.
To go along with that I wanted to try their new Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing oil, because I was curious, love a good cleansing oil at night ..and I thought the packaging was cool - oh dear Zoe!

Kiko Milano's New Summer 2.0 Collection - Highlighting Drops '01 Golden Shell'


It was my birthday a few weeks back and my fiancĂ© Nick took me shopping in Birmingham. I had no idea they had a Kiko store. I have never tried anything from the brand, and always heard good things so decided to go in for a little swatch fest. I went straight over to the eye shadows, they have such a massive range! I was on the hunt for the 208 water shadow, which I'm sure you have heard makes a pretty popping highlight.

Easter Degustabox


This months Degustabox was a brilliant one, to be honest I was kind of expecting it to be as it was an Easter themed one, which usually means chocolate!!
If you are new to the Degusabox concept, it is a monthly food subscription service where you get a box of surprise food, and drinks straight to your door, for you and your whole family to enjoy.
They usually include lots of new releases and brands, it's a great way of trying things you wouldn't normally pick up on your food shop. I have discovered lots of new foodie things this way which I wouldn't have usually picked up myself. See my last Degustabox post HERE.

Vita Liberata's New 10 Minute Tan


If you have been a regular reader of mine you'll know how much I love a bit of self tanner, and Vita Liberata being one of my favourite bands have just released a super convenient 10 Minute Tan. I must say, I do sometimes find it difficult fitting in time to do my tan so I was excited to try this..hence why I used it as soon as it arrived at my door.

Charlotte Tilbury - 'Pillow Talk' Matte Revolution Lipstick


Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Cheat lip liner in the shade 'Pillow Talk' is by far my all time favourite lip shade for a very long time, and that is saying something seen as I have a huge collection of lip colours to choose from. The lip cheat is a lip liner but I wear this all over my lips, the colour does something - It gives the effect of a gorgeous plump pout while looking really natural.
Then recently I noticed that Charlotte Tilbury released 2 new lip shades, one called 'Valentine' which looks like a gorgeous light pink shade in the K.I.S.S.I.N.G line, and then much to my delight a Matte Revolution one in 'Pillow Talk'. Oh my word I just had to have it!

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Ultimate Glow Kit


Anastasia Beverly Hills are a cosmetics brand known for their amazing quality makeup, especially their highlighters in the form of  'glow kits'. My first glow kit which started off my obsession, was the one in 'That Glow' it contained 4 of the most pretty, warm golden and champagne highlight shades.. right up my street.
The ABH glow kits where one of those massively hyped products, so I had to just try it for myself. Plus other ABH products I own such as the 'Dip Brow', Brow Wiz' and their liquid lipsticks where of somewhat of a holy grail of mine.
