POUNDLAND BLENDING BRUSH | HIT OR MISS?

Hello darlings,

I hope you all are well, so as you all have probably seen by now if you’ve been in or maybe online, Poundland has started to widen its range when it comes to the beauty range and if i’m honest some of it can be actually decent especially for the price. They have just about everything all the high enders have but for a fraction of the price at £1, sorry did I hear that right?

@inkimmyshead
First opinion on this it reminded me of the e.l.f. brush which i’m sure sells for £14.50. It really is a stunning brush, and for a good brush it really isn’t a bad price, but it would be even better if this Poundland one for £1 worked just as well wouldn’t it? Lets see if it does.

It looks really chic and pretty, its got a black handle with the Makeup Gallery in white writing on it, the bristles of the brush are a nude colour with burnt orange tips. The brush feels really soft as well but not too soft that it won’t do its job.

@inkimmyshead 

@inkimmyshead
How did I frel about the application using the brush? 

So I used the brush during a makeup routine tonight and being 100% honest I was really surprised with the outcome, considering this brush only cost me £1!! It did a really nice job and because of the shape of the brush and the handle, I feel it helped a lot with the application.

My only downfall with the brush I would say is that it does pick up a bit of product so I would do you application more slowly with this by picking up less product to start with and building up. But all in all I can’t really fault this brush and my expectations weren’t really high to begin with because it did only cost £1 an I was scared the brush was going to be too rough or just spread product everywhere instead of properly applying it.

 I would definitely say this blending brush from Pound land is a HIT! Great to add to your collection especially if you’re just starting out and not wanting to spend loads on brushes to begin with! If you would like to see anything else reviewed just pop a comment below or message me on Twitter(linked below)! 

 Have you tried any Pound land products? What were your thoughts?

 Lots of love,

Kimmy ✖️❣️

All about the Bybel – CB Deluxe Edition Review and Swatches

HEY HEY DARLINGSS!!

This is all about dat BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition palette that I purchased from Pranava Beauty. And you can now buy this for $22.50. This is a bigger and more updated version of her first palette (which is still available to buy at Beauty Bay and BH Cosmetics) but with even more amazingness 😍. If you don’t know who Carli Bybel is thennn please do check her out on YouTube, one of my favourite beauty YouTubers ever so you can imagine the excitement when she revealed the news of this palette coming out.. anyway moving on!

 This post will contain a review and some swatches of the palette! 

@inkimmyshead
@inkimmyshead
 WHAT DO YOU GET? 

Sooo pretty, In this palette you get a range of 15 eyeshadows and 6 highlighters. Some of the eyshadows are matte some are more shimmery. The packaging this comes in is so chic and looks elegant. The outside of the palette has a padded cushion type look with rose gold writing and inside is a marble effect and also contains a good size mirror with thequote  ‘Aspire to Inspire’ underneath. 

QUALITY

I am honestly in awe of this palette it’s now at the top of my go to palettes, from the shades to the pigmentation, the quality of the eyeshadows are amazing and I’ve not experience any fallout from these. The formula is so nice and they all feel nice and buttery, they also blend out really well and blend lovely together too. I would also say this is a great versatile palette for travelling as its all compact in the one place and can create so many looks from it.

 PRICE

I got this palette for $19.50 when it first came out on pre orderand it’s now up to $22.50 which in my eyes is a bargain for sure especially with how good the palette is. This is limited to 2 per customer. Such a steal!! 

 DELIVERY

Delivery time did take a while when I ordered but I’m pretty sure this was because it was pre-order so after that ended it came pretty fast especially since it was shipping to the UK. I did email the customer service team to ask about delivery as my tracking option wasn’t working and they couldn’t have been any nicer on making sure to check how long and make sure you were happy!

11 Questions I Was Nominated To Answer

1) What made you start blogging?
I started blogging because I had passions for lots of different things and I was always jotting ideas or my friends/family would ask me about things. I decided to start a blog as a hobby and my own little space to write down ideas. I’m so happy I did as there’s so many lovely and supportive people in the blogging community which makes it all the more fun.
2) Who is your role model and why?

As cheesy or cliché as this sounds my role model is my mum 100%. She is the woman that has shown me everything I know and taught me to be the type of person I am today. She inspires me to be better and If I grow up to be like her then that’s something I will be happy with.

3) You discover after a year of having your wonderful child that there was a mix up at the hospital and you accidentally got the wrong child, would you want to exchange?

Got to be Italian for sure, pizza pasta all that good stuff is right up my street.
7) what would you like to have achieved in 1 year, 5 year and 10 years time?
In 1 year time I would like to be qualified as a paralegal, in 5 years I would like to have my Law degree and be a solicitor. In 10 years I would like to be content with my life and hopefully settled down with the person I am supposed to be with and have my first baby for sure.
8) Name three things you have done that you are really proud of?
I am proud that I am learning to love myself for me, that I have taken the step to make this blog to begin with, for being the person I am today!
9) Why is your best friend, your best friend?
My best friend is my best friend because she is someone I can always count on no matter what, there’s no judging or feeling awkward to tell them anything no matter how bad you may find it. She always has my back and I know 100% that no matter, when, where or what for if I needed her she would be there. Most important she’s like family and someone I can always have a laugh with or just sit doing nothing with.
10) If you could pack your bags and travel to anywhere in the world for free tomorrow, where would you go?
Honestly, Italy. It is just so beautiful and as said before my favourite cuisine. Be amazing to just hop on plane to there and live the Italian lifestyle.
11) Are you are morning or an evening person?
Definitely an evening person I hate hating to get out my bed early haha! I don’t mind as much tho if I’m getting up to do something fun!

NYX BRIGHTS | REVIEW + SWATCHES

Hello love,

If you haven’t bought the NYX Brights Eyeshadow Palette yet then you totes should! I actually fell in love and was so surprised with it its now a go to for my makeup looks.

@inkimmyshead

This is one of the looks I created using the NYX palette. Im not saying i’m any good at makeup or an expert or whatever but I was pretty proud of this and was so happy with the palette for so many reasons.

The pigmentation of the colours is amazing and for the palette only costing £16 I was pleased to say the least. Don’t we all want a good quality palette at an affordable price?

The thing I love too is that there is a range within the palette from colours, to mattes, shimmers and theres so much you can do with it.

@inkimmysheadIMG_3013

You can see from the pictures how well the colours pick up on camera both with and without a flash. So that would just make me wonder how well they pick up when doing a swatch also.. lets see

@inkimmyshead@inkimmyshead

Just look at those colours I mean, whattt?

Haha, can you tell I love this palette, but honestly I just wanted to show you guys how it looks and give you a little review incase you had been looking and wondering if its worth it which I do ALOT!

Overall I would recommend this palette 100% as my opinion of it is that its amazing, the colours blend in really well too and you don’t have to work too hard with it or it doesn’t feel like its dragging over your eyes, you get me?

@inkimmyshead

This was the finished look I done, if you’d like to see how I done this look just let me know below. I know its not exactly amazing but I was quite happy with it.

So I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you are interested then you can buy the palette here.

Lots of Love,

Kimmy ❣️

15 Random Questions | TAG

Hello lovely,

so todays post is a bit different but its quite fun and gets you really thinking, so its 15 random questions about yourself and I will be tagging a few below to do it also so I will link their blogs in at the end and you can check it out and keep your eyes peeled for their tag!

When I first started to answer these questions I was like omg im so bad at answering stuff about myself and it makes you think that you don’t really ever think about what your like/hate etc in regards to yourself until someone actually asks you and your just like emmm well. haha so if you wanna see my 15 random questions and answers then keep on reading..

@inkimmyshead

whats one thing thats happened to you that has made you a stronger person?

I would say loosing people I love or going through experiences in my life that i’ve always thought I would never get passed. I know that might sound obvious but to me that would be my reason as too why I feel like a much stronger person because going through them and sometimes dealing yourself you do realise how strong you are.

who do you think has had the largest influence on the person you are today?

The people that have doubted me or disliked my decisions etc. May sound a bit silly but because of them it has made me have a different outlook on things and want to push myself even harder to prove to not only them but to myself that I can achieve things if I really want to and put my mind and hard work into it.

do you easily accept compliments? or do you hate compliments?

It depends haha, in person if someone compliment me I think to myself ‘they’ve got to be lying’ so i’m just like awhh thank you and get quite shy. I wouldn’t say I hate them as a compliment can always make your day, am I right? Its a little bit in between I guess.

what is your favourite physical attribute about yourself?

Got to be my hair, it something i’ve always been quite happy with as its pretty long and thick and my natural hair is quite curly so I can easily have it styled without much effort. So definitely would be that if anything.

whats is your favourite non-physical attribute about yourself? 

Ummm, I think ive got a good personality like not tooting my own trumpet or anything but its good to feel that way about yourself even if it is only certain things, I feel im easy to get along with and trust and also that ive got quite a good head on my shoulders for e.g. thinking smart about things and how it could effect others and just knowing what I want..

do you believe in soul mates?

Well yeah I guess I do, I believe that there is someone out there for everyone and that the right person will come along, whether its a past love and your get back together because its meant to be or someone new who you’ve just known is the one. Its a shame that life can’t just work out to be with the one you love tho.

what is something you’ve never done before that you’ve always wanted to do?

Always wanted to travel the world and see every city and just explore everything, get to know the cultures and people and see how people from different countries live, how different it is and all that.

why haven’t you done it?

A few reasons, money, being scared, not wanting to leave people behind. I am slowly starting to book trips to different countries now tho so I am glad to be ticking some things off my list even if its not going to be the full traveller experience at least I will still experience it in my own way.

what is the last thing that REALLY embarrassed you?

I honestly don’t know I wouldn’t say i’ve been really embarrassed about much in a while, the only thing that has embarrassed me a bit was when I tripped up outside in the middle of the city centre haha but I just laughed it off so all was good.

what is your biggest fear?

Moths and heights, I can’t tell what one I have fear of most as moths creep me out so much I could literally cry if it was on or near me haha! Heights make me feel super uncomfortable and not in control.

what is one thing you thing your life is missing?

Contentment I would say i’m not fully content on how everything is but I know you can’t control everything in life unfortunately. if things could go the way we want we would all be super happy but I would like to feel more content with things.

who is the one person in this world that knows you best?

My mum, she’s like my best friend also, I could literally tell her anything I imagine and she knows me best from what I like to what I hate, what annoys me, how i’m feeling.

where is the one place you feel most like yourself?

Im not really sure, I feel most myself when ever i’m doing anything that I love, dancing, organising, on here I can be myself completely I guess without feeling like you would be judged.

where is your favourite place to escape to?

Honestly, I love just going to my room or chilling myself having a pamper evening, listen to some good music and read a book.

whats your favourite joke?

This is a hard one haha theres so many but I must admit theres no many I forget them not long after hearing them, memory is terrible sometimes. I love funny one liners tho the best haha.

MILAN QUILTED HANDBAG* | WHATS IN MY BAG?

Hello honeys,

I thought I would do a what’s in my bag post for you today, at the moment I’ve been super busy so I generally take quite a few bits and bobs in my bag to get me through my day. Some essential, some are um just because really.

So I just want to say first that my beautifulll bag is from Boutique of Molly.*. This is the ‘Milan’ bag and it costs £35 but you guys can get 20% off with my discount code at checkout in the apply coupon section – KIMMY20 (This discount if for 20% off your order for anything on the website not just this bag alone).

@inkimmyshead

The thing I really like about this bag is that it looks so much more expensive than it is, it reminds me of a Chanel purse but for a fraction of the price! It’s a good size but not too big and it has little compartments plus the way it closes over means I feel safer that things couldn’t easily fall out etc and its a fab size so fits everything I need. It’s also great for day/night and has versatile straps so you can use as a clutch, shoulder bag and can change the length of straps to suit.


The first thing I have in my bag is my purse, this will be one of the one things that are always going to be in any bag I use no matter where I go. This purse is one I got from River Island this was actually a gift.

@inkimmyshead

I have my phone, obv course, which I dropped and smashed the screen (I could have literally cried) Its crazyy how important phones etc have become these days but that’s another topic. My phone case is a marble effect with my initials from Olivia Rose Accessories. (I currently can’t get a photo but you can view on their website).

I always carry my headphones these are just headphones that were lying around the house, I think they may actually be my sisters but, oops. I take these as when I’m travelling to work etc its most times around an hour journey so I like to listen to some music and block everything out.

My kindle always makes an appearance in my bag, love reading and especially when travelling as it’s a good time that I can just relax and read because well there’s not much else to do and I can catch up on whatever book I’m reading. My glasses are always in there too as I need them for reading most things.

@inkimmyshead@inkimmyshead

Hand cream comes with me everywhereee especially work as the soap that my work has in the toilets tend to dry your hands out and I hate that so I like having this handy!! The one I’m using at the moment is my soap & glory hand food. There’s usually a brush or comb in there somewhere too.

The last things I take in my bag guys will be my deodorant because we all like to stay smelling nice and fresh! I take a perfume with me usually a mini depending if it will fit inside the bag I’m using and some chewing gum! and then lastlyyy whatever lipgloss/lipstick i’m wearing that day.

The deodorant i’m using at the moment is Sure Dry 48h anti-perspirant, this smells so fresh and flowery if that makes sense as much as it does to me. I’m using Vera Wang Princess Perfume, this is one of my favourites it smells so lovely and the bottle is super cute. Chewing gum I prefer the Wrigley’s Extra Bubblegum. Anddd today i’m wearing my MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in the shade Reckless and as it’s a lovely red and I thought this matched my bag beautifully, match your undies, match your lips and accessories, right? hahah

@inkimmyshead

MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE | IKH

Hi guys,

So if you seen my latest twitter poll you would have noticed that I couldn’t decide on a post to write for today’s post as I loved them all, so I thought I would let you help me decide and the most votes was for my morning skin care routine, so here it is.

@inkimmyshead

I find it so important to keep on top of my skin care routine as I myself am prone to dry skin in some areas and I like to keep my skin looking and feeling as good and healthy as possible. So if you’d like to know my everyday morning skincare routine then keep reading

To start off when I wake up at 7am when my alarm goes off *yawwnn* the first thing I do is drink a cold glass of water, now I don’t know if most people would count this as part of a skin care routine but I do as water is so important for so many aspects of life but also for keeping your body refreshed and as an added bonus its a good thing to keep your body hydrated therefore your skin.

Once ive drank my glass of water, I will sort all my clothes and make sure my bag is sorted for going to work for the day. Then I will go to the bathroom and brush my teeth, I will never miss out brushing my teeth in the morning and at night, so important. At the moment I’m using my Oral B 3D white electric toothbrush with my Oral B 3D white toothpaste. This toothbrush is amaze especially with the toothpaste leaves your teeth nice and sparkly fresh. I always brush for at least 2 minutes.

After I’ve done this I will move on my face, I start off with my Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water which is good for sensitive skin too and non perfumed. One of my favourites as it’s really good for cleaning and soothing the skin plus it’s also a makeup remover so if there’s anything left over on our face, whether this is makeup, or products you have used last night it will clean it all away, leaving a nice clear base again. This can also be used on the eyes and lips too which I like. I just use a cotton pad to remove with this.

@inkimmyshead

Next I move onto my eyes and at the moment I am using my Oolution eye love eye contour cream that I got from my Glossybox. I just dot this underneath my eyes then I will pat onto this with my ring finger (that’s the correct word for it, right? haha) and then gently rub in around up to my eyebrows at the side of my eyes but not actually putting it onto my eyelid.  I used to use the Botanics 80% organic eye cream from Boots but this got discontinued.

@inkimmyshead

The last things I do to my face will be moisturising my face and at the moment I am using my Nip + Fab kale moisturizer. This makes my skin feel hydrated and moisturized all day and it also smells really good, I just try to pat this on my face with my fingertips tho so it goes into my skin but not rubbing in with any other products on my face.  I then use my lip scrub from Lush this takes any dry skin off and leaves them feeling silky smooth (woo) Just apply with a clean finger then once done lick your lips clean, also great for before doing makeup and liquid lipstick. I will then normally just put on my burt’s bees lip balm on top to keep my lips moisturised but I’ve run out at the moment. If I’m not using this I usually just put a clear pinky coloured lip gloss on from NYX or whatever lipstick I’m wearing if I have makeup on for work that day.

@inkimmyshead@inkimmyshead

The last thing I will do is moisturise all my body with my Soap & Glory ….. This feels so good on the skin I love all the Soap & Glory products they are amazeee. I will then lastly put my hand cream on and the heel genius cream on then put some nice cosy socks on the help is moisturise into the skin both are from S&G too.

@inkimmyshead

So that’s my morning skin care routine, it’s probably different from most people as everyone’s skin and routines are, but this one works for me and my skin at the moment. Do you have a set morning skincare routine? I would love to read about them, leave links below and I will check them out. Also let me know what you guys think. All products are linked below.

(Twice a week or if I have more time I will do a face mask, Normally my Lush coffee scrub mask or my NuSkin marine mud mask). Also I alwayssss have a nice big hot cup of coffee in the morning, one true loveeee.

Lots of love,

Kimmy 🌸
