Birthday Makeup Giveaway 2017: Open Worldwide

I've spent the last 12 hours with streaming, stinging eyes, thanks to an allergic reaction to Blinc Tubing Mascara - a polymer seems to be the culprit. I'll return to public life once my eyes stop resembling overripe tomatoes. 
As promised, I have the next giveaway up for you, to run during my birthday (mid-April). I wanted to share a Jouer liquid lipstick with you - I reviewed these here. These are new-generation liquid lipsticks, and do not flake or behave like those uber-drying matte liquid lippies of yore.
Multi-prize makeup and beauty giveaway open worldwide April May 2017.

LookFantastic Beauty Box March 2017: The Elle Edit

March 2017's LookFantastic Beauty Box is the Elle Edit - for a while now, the beauty box has been accompanied by a copy of the Elle UK magazine each month, something that I've come to love. This month's box has been specially curated to bring us "the most exciting beauty products" around.
Of course, the box comes with the Elle UK magazine, featuring Emma Watson. There's also the Beauty Box magazine - now a glossy number with a few articles, and not just a product card.

Fourth Blogoversary Giveaway Results

I've been AWOL for most of the last couple of weeks, a trend that is expected to run through the next week. I'm going trekking after 2014 - it will be a chilly 9°C, but I'm just glad to get away.
Before I leave, I will be setting up my birthday giveaway, scheduled to start from mid-this week, and expected to run through April, so stay tuned for that.
And, before I set that giveaway up, here are the results of my Fourth Blogiversary Giveaway.
Please note that the flowers pictured are not included in the package. They've - stolen from my Dad's orchid garden - wilted anyway.

Beauty Expert Indulgent Collection Review, Contents

The Indulgent Collection is an exclusively curated set of makeup and skincare products currently available on Beauty Expert - yes, they ship worldwide. Beauty Expert have been launching such curated collections since last Autumn, and they sell out very quickly, as the sets are great value for money and contain full-sized beauty products.
Packed in a neat train case, this collection costs £50, and is worth more than £181.

Cult Beauty Spring Goody Bag 2017 Now Available

It's here - the most coveted gift with purchase worldwide. Cult Beauty's Spring Goody Bag is worth more than £210 and is free when you spend £110 on site. Time to buy the Huda Beauty Lip Mattes, or the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette.
I would rush - the bag is selling out fast; I've already got mine and will tell you my first impressions of the goodies once I receive them.
This goody bag contains a full-sized matte liquid lipstick; one I have already reviewed on this blog here. And there is a range of makeup and skincare, from full- to generous travel-sized products.

February 2017 Beauty Empties

NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1.00%. That's the hero of this empties post; it is also the one product I will be repurchasing consistently, for a long time ahead.
The name of the product sounds weird. You'll know what I'm on about as you read my empties post.

Here are the beauty products I used up in February 2017, and my thoughts on each.
