L'Or des Pharaons Anti-Aging Mist

Hey guys,

As I'm nearing the dreaded 3 0 I'm starting to think more about my skincare routine and anti-aging.

I don't have many but I've noticed a few fine lines and I have some frown lines between my brows that annoy the hell out of me! I really need to stop being a grumpy cow ;)

Lately I've been putting the *L'Or des Pharaons Anti-Aging Mist to the test. This spray has no hidden nasties, just purified water with pure gold, no I didn't stutter, that's pure gold! With added zinc to aid oil control and platinum to firm and regenerate, this is perfect for those who prefer gentle products. 

Since watching big beauty gurus talking about gold primers I though this was a fab product to incorporate into my routine.

This little bottle of goodness is very refreshing on the face. No noticeable scent which I love as I'm quite sensitive to smells. It leaves my face feeling fresh and prepped.

Makeup goes on just as smoothly and doesn't stick in places which I was worried about initially. In fact this spray actually seems to improve my makeup application.

I haven't noticed any changes with anti-aging but like I said I only have the odd fine line near my eyes so really at this stage it's more about preventing wrinkles than fixing what I already have and skincare needs time to show improvements so I'm hopeful that with continued use I'll start to look 18 again ;)

This spray is small enough to fit nicely in your makeup bag and is so easy to use its like childs play! We all want young looking skin so adding this to your routine is a simple step for what could be a big difference to your skin.

Have you tried this spray? What do you think?

Why am I not good enough?!

Hey guys,

Random post which in hindsight I should probably bin and forget about but then I thought no, bubblybex3 is my blog to write about whatever shit I want. Granted I'm mostly moaning about being fat or gushing over the latest eyeshadow palette but you get my meaning. This is my space!

On to the topic at hand. No confidence and self doubt. These are things I feel most of the time. I've touched on the subject of my extreme pmt before (PMDD post here) and how the hormonal fluctuations make me crazy! 

Well did they hit last weekend! After missing my period for months (they stopped due to being too fat! Ha back to the moaning) they have come back with a vengeance! I'm talking monster pmt people! Is this tmi? 

Anyway the catalyst to my emotional breakdown this week was one tiny little thing that in the grand scheme of things means fuck all.

I just don't feel good enough. I feel like people only tolerate me which at 29 is a sad thing to admit whether it's true or not and I hate how insecure I feel when it comes to social situations. Are people even bothered I'm there?!

I wanted to deactivate Twitter, Facebook and snapchat as I felt like the worst person in the world. I was fat, I was ugly and I had this paranoid fear that everyone was going to abandon a sinking ship (unfollow me) coz that's the worst right?

Don't fret, I obviously didn't. It was my mum who told me to stop being a twit and that I'm letting hormones and insecurities create problems that don't exist.
Gah it's making me cringe just writing this! 

Then I got over it. Whether it's because my hormones decided to even out and give the psychotic thoughts a rest or I just decided who fucking cares?! 

This girl is on a mission to better herself both physically and mentally and no hormone or negative thought will stop me! 

Thanks for reading my ramblings!

Much Love,

Bex X

Voodou Liverpool

Hey guys!

I was lucky enough to be invited to an event at Voodou Salon in Liverpool recently which gave me the chance to check out there awesome services.

First off this place is awesome! It's huge and I instantly loved the vibe. This awesome mosaic symbol takes pride of place on the main back wall, so I had to get a picture of that bad boy. Although this one is all thanks to Allie as mine got swallowed up by snapchat. Oops.

Downstairs is home to The Hippy Club where all your hair extension needs can be realised. They also make hair products as well! The owner Louise is a lovely lady who can rock a vintage hippy dress like no other.

Makeup Gallery || Testing Poundland Makeup

Hey guys,

I decided to follow the crowd and give Poundland makeup a go and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

full face of makeup by poundland

I spent less than £20 on a full face which if you're a student on a budget or just don't want to spend that much on makeup is great. I'd say give this brand a try.

I wasn't too impressed with the foundation or concealer as the shades and coverage were pants but the face powder, bronzer and blush were actually pretty good. Slightly powdery but not enough to put me off.

The metallic eyeshadows were lovely! Especially Pink Champayne which I used as a highlighter. They were very soft and didn't have any fall out so yay to that!

I loved the black liquid liner! It had a small brush and I was able to draw a semi decent wing with liquid liner for the first time! I'm normally a felt tip liner girl. Lol.

Mostly as I have hooded lids I was happy to see that the liner didn't transfer on my upper lid so this will definitely be a keeper.

poundland liquid and glitter eyeliners

The glitter liners were OK, my only issue was I had to keep dipping my brush in the tube to get the product to show.

The brow pencil was good. Firm enough to get nice hair like strokes and had good pigmentation. The lip liner however was awful! Too hard with no colour unless I pressed really hard and I kinda like my lips without bruises ;)

Overall I'd say this brand was a win. Yes I personally had some duds but I was able to make them work and for £1 each it's not going to to annoy you if it doesn't work out.

I also did a first impressions video on my channel so if you fancy a watch you can find it here.

Have you tried Makeup Gallery? What do you think?
