New To My Skincare Stash: The Ordinary

New To My Skincare Stash: The Ordinary
My skincare stash up until recently was spilling out of a large drawer under my bed. It had become home to the skincare products that I’d tried and tested that hadn’t quite met the criteria to take place on my skincare shelf. But I’d store them in there ‘just in case’. But I've had a clear out and up until now, no new purchases had been made. But the New Year and cold weather have given me the ideal opportunity (or excuse...) to add a new crop of products to help freshen up my skincare routine.

You Don't Know What You've Got Till It's Gone: Laura Mercier Highlight 01

You Don't Know What You've Got Till It's Gone: Laura Mercier Highlight 01
As I have an upcoming high-end highlighter edit on its way, I wasn't going to share this post. But this post is entirely warranted. During 2016 my makeup stash saw an onslaught of highlighters, but the one highlighter I could always rely on to deliver pigment, longevity and a downright gorgeous glow on the daily, was the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight 01 (£28.50). And it wasn't until I polished it off that I discovered no matter what back-up highlighter I wore in it's place, nothing compared and as a result a repurchase HAD to be made.

MAC Honeylove Lipstick | Review & Swatches

MAC Honeylove Lipstick | Review & Swatches
MAC Honeylove lipstick is the latest nude lipstick from MAC to find its way into my ever growing lipstick collection. Purchased in duty free on my way to Dublin last month, it was one of two shades on my duty-free shopping list. I had been eyeing up MAC Whirl, but having swatched the shade on my wrist I hesitated and realised I'm not quite ready to rock a full blown brown lip (all in good time...). And as my friend is a fan of the shade Honeylove, as is my latest favourite YouTuber Lydia Elise Millen, I would have been a fool not to pop it into my basket.

Mococo Jewellery: Thomas Sabo Silver Pave Heart Necklace | GIVEAWAY

Mococo Jewellery: Thomas Sabo Silver Pave Heart Necklace | GIVEAWAY
With Valentines Day fast approaching I've been inundated with the advertisement of red roses, corny cards, boxes of chocolates and giant love heart bearing teddy bears. Now it may come across that I'm not a fan of Valentines Day, but I am. I just have a disdain for only expressing how you feel one day of the year. But having said that I actually quite like the corny cards and cliche valentines gifts and in all honesty no girl is disappointed with classic jewellery doused in diamonds...

Speaking of jewellery this Valentines I've teamed up with Mococo my favourite online retailers for shopping affordable designer jewellery and they've kindly gifted me a beautiful Thomas Sabo Silver Pave Heart Necklace RRP £70.00 and I'm going to give it away to one lucky BBA reader (as heart shaped jewellery isn't something a girl buys herself!). Personally I'm very selective when it comes to jewellery, but what I particularly like about this Thomas Sabo necklace is that not only is it simplistic, the heart pendant is delicate and dainty without looking or feeling cheap. 

To enter and be in the chance of winning, all you need to do is follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below. There are two compulsory entries; you must be following British Beauty Addict via Bloglovin' and Mococo Jewellery via Twitter. But I've also added a few additional entries, if you fancy increasing your chances of winning. The giveaway is open internationally and ends on 19/02/2017. One winner will be chosen at random and all entries will be checked.

Good luck!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit | Review & Swatches

Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit | Review & Swatches
When it comes to highlighters, Anastasia Beverly Hills has it nailed. From their Illuminators and four-pan palettes which are forever sold out, it will come as no surprise that everyone went into a tizzy when the Ultimate Glow Kit was released. And with such admiration for the brand and my weakness for highlighters, I swallowed the price tag, took the plunge and purchased the limited edition palette. But before I ramble on, I must admit I have mixed feelings about this palette. In short; it's a sparkly one!

What's In My Makeup Bag: January

What's In My Makeup Bag: January
Its been yonks since I delved inside my makeup bag and shared its contents with you. And having spent the last few months welcoming new beauty products and disguising my pasty complexion, I thought I'd chat you through the makeup routine that has seen me through the first month of 2017...
