Isa Dora Face Sculptor Palette

Hey Guys!

After harping on about this product for a while now, I thought I'd do a more in depth review of the Isa Dora Face Sculptor Palette in the shade Warm Peach*. Here's why I love it...



Bronzer: The bronzer is a bit darker than Benefit's Hoola Bronzer, and it also has a touch of very fine shimmer. It is fine enough that I use it to lightly contour my face whenever I'm feeling a bit adventurous with my makeup for college. It is definitely for people with a warmer skin tone, like mine. They have another shade of the palette; Cool Pink, which would be ideal for Irish pink-toned skin.

Blush: This is a lovely peach shade that I feel would suit most skin tones. It has super finely milled gold shimmer running through it which adds a certain glow to the skin that I love. It manages to make me look flushed, but not embarrassed... my cheeks can do that all by themselves!

Highlight: A lovely champagne highlight that reminds me of a powder version of my beloved NARS Copacabana Liquid Illuminator. I dust this on top of my cheekbones and a tiny bit down my nose for nights out or special occasions.

So there you have it, my thoughts on Isa Dora's Face Sculptor Palette* in the shade Warm Peach.

Have you tried anything form Isa Dora before?

Weekly Roundup #3

Hey Guys!

Here's another instalment of my (almost) weekly series of my faves. This week I have been loving...


Isa Dora Face Sculptor Palette*: I used this in my most recent YouTube video, and I've been using it every day since! It is an all-rounder palette with a blush that suits most skin tones,  a gorgeous champagne highlight and a non-orangey bronzer. What's not to love?

Love, Tanya by Tanya Burr: This is such a beautiful book. I haven't read it all yet, but I just love flicking through the pages. Photography is something I love, so I could sit for hours just looking at all of the gorgeous images in this book.

White Hot Love Nail Polish: I reviewed this last week, here, and I haven't taken it off! It catches my eye every time I pick something up or move my hands in any noticeable way, and the longevity is pretty darn good too.

That's it for my favourites of the week.

What have you been loving this week?

xoxo, Emma

White Hot

Hey Guys!

During the summer last year, I was browsing Asos, as you do, and there was a flash sale on the Rimmel Rita Ora nail polishes. They were on sale for €1.50! I quickly purchased the shade 'White Hot Love', a beautiful white colour. I expected it to be a five-coat job because of past experiences with white nail polishes, but you can really get away with one or two coats.


This nail polish lasts around 4 days on me before I need a touch-up, and that's without a base or top coat. I love this nail polish with a tan, so I'll definitely be rocking it in the summer months, but yesterday I was feeling uninspired by the spring-y shades in my collection. You know, the pastels, pinks and oranges, so I wanted a pop of white and reached for this polish. The result? I can't stop staring at my nails!



Have you tried any other shades in the Rita Ora for Rimmel Nail Polish range?

FairyPants Cuticle Oil

Hey Guys!

I'm back with a quick review for you today, a review of Fairypants.co.uk's new cuticle oil*. Fairy pants are a British vegan cosmetics and jewellery company that pride themselves on being totally cruelty-free, something I truly value in a company, so without further ado, onto the review! (That rhymed, lol).


I received this very kindly in the post, and as I was having a nail polish free day, I thought I'd pop it on my cuticles to give them a little bit of much-needed TLC. The first thing I noticed was the fresh scent of citronella from the oil, a scent that reminds me of a salon, and getting pampered.

I like how you apply this with a brush as it makes it easy to pinpoint dry areas on your cuticles. I brushed the oil on, let it sit for a minute or so and then massaged it into my cuticles. After soaking in, I really noticed a difference. Those horrible dry bits of skin that seem to catch on everything were softened, and I can tell that with another use, I'll hardly even know they're there!


The packaging hasn't been totally confirmed yet, so I was sent the oil in a basic nail polish bottle. I will update you on Twitter when they release the proper packaging.

Until then,

xoxo, E
