Crown Brush Rose Gold Palette & Contour Brush Review

Sunday, 22 January 2017

Hi Dolls!

I hope you have all had an amazing weekend, todays post is a review of some new Crown Brush products. I have previously worked with Crown Bush before and I absolutely loved the products they previously sent me, so when they asked if there was anything else of theirs I wanted to try out I was so excited! If you want to read my previous review of Crown Brush products click here.

The first item I was sent was the Rose Gold Full Face Contour brush set which retail for £29.99, I was really intrigued by these brushes not only for their beautiful colour but also because the style of brush. These types of brushes have been blowing up in the blogging/Instagram beauty community so I really wanted to try some for myself. I have previously received some Crown Brush brushes and I love them, I use them basically everyday so I had high hopes for these ones. 

The first thing I noticed when un-packaging them were they are incredibly dense and super soft which I really liked. I used the larger one for my foundation which worked amazingly well it blended my foundation so effortlessly leaving my skin looking flawless, the brush didn't soak up much of my foundation which I was worried they might do. I then used the smaller of the three to blend out my concealer under my eyes which again blended the product like a dream. Finally I used the medium brush to set the concealer under my eyes with loose powder which worked really well too. I can definitely see why people like to use these types of brushes and I think I will be using them on a regular basis!

The second product Crown Brush sent me was their 35 colour Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette, this palette retails for £22.99 which I think is such an amazing price for 35 amazing shades! The reason why I chose this palette is because I am really into warm orange/pinky eyeshadows at the moment, this palette has a very Morphe 35O feel to it, I personally don't have the Morphe palette but I think this would be a good dupe for it!

I swatched a few of my favourite shades literally as soon as I opened the palette and I can honestly say these shadows are so pigmented and creamy, I don't like describing powder shadows as creamy but thats literally the only way to describe them. The matte shades are just as pigmented and buttery as the shimmer shades which I find is quite rare in an eyeshadow palette. There is such an amazing range of shadows in this palette which gives you the opportunity to create so many stunning looks with just one palette. 

This is the first look I created using this palette and I absolutely love it, I cant wait to see what other looks I can create using this palette. There is a burgundy shade which I really want to use to create a bronzed smoky eye with the burgundy shade on my outer v rather than a black I would usually go for. I know for sure I am going to have loads of fun creating different looks using this palette which I will share on my Instagram (@chloedentonxo).

You can buy these products individually but you can also purchase them in a set which actually works out cheaper than buying them separately.

Flat Tummy Tea 4 Week Review

Sunday, 15 January 2017

Hi Loves!

Okay so two weeks ago I posted a two week review of the flat tummy detox tea, if you didn't read it feel free to do so here.

Flat Tummy Tea is a 2 step herbal detox tea, it is designed to naturally decrease bloating, boost your energy levels, support your metabolism and cleanse your system (improve digestion). You can choose between a two week cleanse or a 4 week cleanse. I was sent the 4 week cleanse to review (obvs).

The package came with two sachets of tea in a cute little zipper bag the first, larger bag is the Activate tea which you take first thing every morning. I was so worried about how the tea would taste as I don't usually like herbal teas but it was actually really nice. I would drink mine whilst getting ready for work in the morning giving the tea time to get into my system before eating and also giving it time to give me energy which it really does! I have found myself with much more energy since drinking the tea which, for me is essential as some days I have 5:30am starts! 

The second tea in the package is the cleanse tea which you take every other evening, I liked drinking mine about an hour before bed as it really helped to relax me and again it tasted really nice! I mentioned in my previous blogpost that these teas do really clear your out (soz for the TMI). If you're considering trying flat tummy tea don't panic thinking you'll have to run to the bathroom several times a day because it wasn't like that for me at all, you can just tell that it is really clearing you out.

My Verdict?

I bloody love this tea! It does exactly what it is supposed to do, I am less bloated and have loads more energy. At first I didn't notice many changes on the bloat front until I came on my period (more TMI sorry!). When I get my period I bloat like a bitch and feel so sluggish which I didn't get AT ALL!!! I had a hard stomach on the first day but that was only my muscles constricting in pain. I couldn't believe I didn't get any bloating at all. After mother natures visit I really started noticing how much my bloating had gone down. I am really impressed with this tea and love my results, I am planning on using this tea every couple of months to maintain my bloating because I really do love it.

Two week cleanse - £29.55
Four week cleanse - £40.23

Have you ever used a de-bloating tea?

Best In Beauty 2016

Tuesday, 10 January 2017

Hey Loves!

I have seen quite a few people posting about their favourite products of 2016 and I really enjoyed reading them, which got me thinking about the products I love[d]. For be 2016 was a really good beauty year and I tried out so many products I have fallen in love with.

This primer I'm sure you have all heard of, this is a pore filling primer which for me is essential as I have rather large pores this product blurs them and gives a flawless base for my foundation.

This foundation is omg amazing, I really wanted to try more mac products this year and this foundation was one of them. This foundation is on the more fuller coverage side but it is also buildable to ensure all blemishes are covered. I really liked using this foundation for on nights out and also on bad skin days. 

Okay, we all know I love this foundation I have spoke about it several times on my blog and have been using it for years. It is a medium coverage foundation but can be built up to a fuller coverage without looking cakey! I have gone through so many of these in 2016 and will continue to buy it.

This bronzer is owned by everyone and their mother, it is the perfect contour shade as it is super cool toned and not orange at all. I have loved this bronzer for contour so much this year i have actually run out almost totally!

Benefit boxed blushes are super popular in the blogging/beauty community and rightfully so! I have collected almost all of them but dandelion seems to be my all time fave as it is such a pretty subtle pink which is perfect for me as I tend to prefer more natural looking blushers.

This is another product which everyone seems to own, It is the most gorgeous pinky silver highlight which also looks amazing on the eyelids. I have used this product more than any of my other highlighters in my collection, and as you can see I haven't even hit pan!

TheBalm Mary-loumanizer 
This highlight was a staple for me this year especially for nights out it is less chunkier than the mac one more gold. It is one of those highlights that literally make your cheek bones pop. The only negative about this product is the powder is so soft they product tends to break. I have had to fix mine quite a few times!

I cannot live without this product!!! Mac fix+ (which I have explained before) is a finishing spray NOT a setting spray it will not prolong the wear of your make up what so ever. I use this product every time I wear makeup because I like to use a lot of powdered products blush, contour, highlight etc my face can look 'powdery' at times but this product totally eliminates that and leaves your make up looking bloody flawless. It can also be used to intensify eyeshadows which I love. p.s. fix+ sprayed on mac soft & gentle makes the most gorgeous shimmer lid shade.

I used the Urban Decay primer potion for so long thinking it was the dogs then purchased soft ochre and my life is has been changed. It is the most perfect eyeshadow base I find it practically works as a glue it really sticks the eyeshadow to your lid. It is also really amazing to use if you like wearing a cut crease.

Again I am sure you guys already knew this would be on my list as it is my all time fave naked palette. The shadows are so incredibly stunning and really long lasting, there is an amazing mix of shimmer and mattes which is great. I love wearing pinky shades on my eyes day to day which is basically the entire palette! you also get some more shimmery and dark shadows for evening looks too. Everyone needs this in their collection. 

For me 2016 was the year of mac lippies as I did buy quite a few. Mac is my favourite brand for lipsticks as they are such amazing quality and last amazingly well. My two favourites of this year were Velvet Teddy and Twig. Velvet Teddy as you all know is a nude mate lipstick and an absolute classic ever since the 'Kylie Jenner lip craze'. Twig is a gorgeous reddy brown nude it is a satin finish and again lasts really well, I personally like to dab translucent powder over Twig to make it matte.

What were your beauty favourites of 2016?

2017 Goals & January Goals

Sunday, 8 January 2017

Happy New Year Bitches!

First of all I'm sure you are all bored of hearing this by now How quick has 2016 gone?! I genuinely cannot believe we are already in 2017! I hope you all had an amazing 2016 and are feeling just as motivated as me to grab 2017 by the balls. I love reading other peoples goals so I thought I would share mine too.

Yearly Goals
1: Motivation
I have realised I can be such an unmotivated person, I have so many things I want to do in my life but I struggle finding the get up and go to actually do them! so I want to take 2017 as my opportunity to become more motivated.

2. Pass My Driving Test
Some of you might already know but I did a one week driving course in 2015 and failed...My theory runs out this August (which took me 3 attempts to pass) so I really need to pass my test before August! Especially since my job requires me to do some 5:30am starts meaning Scott has to wake up at the crack of dawn to take me to work.

2: Learn How To Manage My Money
Okay, this is a difficult one. I am known for being really really shit with money. I spend lots of money on well, nothing actually. I really want to start budgeting and saving this year as I really want to buy a house in the next 5 years which is hella expensive! I'm not too sure how successful I'll be but...wish me luck!

3: Become More Serious About Blogging.
I have started to become really slack where blogging is concerned this one also ties in with the motivation side where I just haven't had the get up and go I need to get shit done but I am hoping in 2017 I can find my motivation and kick some blogging ass.

January Goals

1: Post Twice A Day On Instagram
I haven't been posting half as much on Instagram as I used to and you can really tell! I've lost so many followers and I get less likes. My engagement is all around down! So being more active will hopefully bring my Instagram back to where it used to be.

2: Finish My Vanity/Office 
If you follow my Twitter (@chloedentonxo) you will have seen I am splitting my vanity to half vanity half office desk. I really want a designated 'blogging' space to hopefully keep me motivated because I find sitting on the sofa blogging I get so distracted and don't do what I need to do. Keep an eye out on social media and Bloglovin for the blogpost on how I split my vanity.

3: Become More Active On Twitter
Much like Instagram where I have been lazy and not as active my Twitter engagement has drastically decreased and I really want to work on that not only this month but all year.

Thanks for reading beauts, what are your goals for 2017?

Two Weeks Of Flat Tummy Tea

Sunday, 1 January 2017

Hey Loves! 

Happy new Year!! I thought I would kickstart 2017 with a little mini review of Flat Tummy Tea. I was contacted a little while ago by a lovely girl who works at flat tummy tea offering to send me some of their tea to review, I have heard a lot of god things about this tea so thought I would try it out for myself to see if it actually works. I am just over two weeks in to the 4 week cleanse and so far so good.

In the package I received the activate pouch of loose tea which you drink once every morning and then the cleanse loose tea which you drink every other evening. Both teas to me taste really herbal which if I'm totally honest was worried about as I usually don't like herbal tasting teas but these ones are so nice, as they are really refreshing and calming. I have noticed my bloating has gone down a hell of a lot especially since the time of the month came and I had barely any bloating where as I usually get really bloated. This tea pretty much clears you out which you would expect, I am really looking forward to finishing my last two weeks and feeling the benefits of these two teas. Stay tuned for my full review in two weeks time|!

Have you ever tried any de-bloating teas?
