My MacXFleurDeForce Lipstick


I do love a good Mac Cosmetics lipstick, so when Fleur De Force announced she was creating her own shade ... I was all over it! A must buy!

Fleur's lipstick is part of Mac's beauty influencers limited edition collection where ten people from around the world got to create their own unique shade to sell in their own country.

Things I'm loving right now ....


Hello lovelies, I hope your all doing well?

I wanted to share with you some of the things I have been loving lately, all things beauty, home and lifestyle! I'm currently sat at my desk (obviously) which is one of my favourites right now as I find it so relaxing and it contains my beautiful Disney Store chip mug, Flamingo Candles, Personal Planner and much more that I adore!

Talking of candles ... I have been loving using only Soy Wax candles lately, after I heard and saw how bad petroleum based paraffin wax is for us and our rooms. I'm slightly buggered in this as I own many many Yankee Candles! But my gorgeous Flamingo Candles are fine and so is my latest favourite...

Love Me Beauty box


Last up in my beauty subscription box series of the day is the Love Me Beauty box.

Love Me Beauty is a monthly subscription box with a difference, it has something special that all the previous boxes I have shared in todays series do not. The difference is you get to pick exactly what you want. Which is a massive plus right?

BirchboxXBoden


Third up in my blogpost subscription box series of the day is Birchbox.

Birchbox has been one of my favourite subscription boxes over the years, and along with Glossybox I have been a loyal subscriber since 2014. Saying that Birchbox made a huge annoncement recently that could well change my thoughts! I have always enjoyed Birchbox for the points system that it has, which allows me to purchase higher end products that I normally wouldn't normally be able to afford (having kids is expensive!). But Birchbox have unfortunately decided they are stopping this points system, which leaves me questioning if I may quit on them!!!

My latest Glossybox


And second up in my blogpost subscription boxes series (in one day) is Glossybox.

I have been a subscriber to both Glossybox and Birchbox since 2014 ... (so rather a long time), but is it time to move on? Let's see what you think to this month's glossybox contents ...

Little Known Box


After what can only be described as beauty box failure's this month, this delivery of my first 'Little Known Box'* is like a breath of fresh air. 

Little Known box is a monthly subscription box (£12.45 + p&p) that can be cancelled anytime. 
You receive 5-6 beauty products, each from "little-known' or new brands within the UK. 
Super cute idea right?

Disappointing product ...


As a blogger I think it's so important to share all things, the good, the bad and the disappointing!

I have been trying out so many beauty products recently and have come a couple of things that honestly don't quite make the grade. So I thought I would share my thoughts with you.

Love Me Beauty box

My Glossybox contents ...


Another month and another Glossybox has arrived at my door.

I have been receiving Glossybox and Birchbox subscription boxes for about two and half years now. Glossybox normally always wins for having more full sized products included in the box. 
Whereas I seem to prefer the brands that are included inside my Birchboxes each month.

Here is what I received inside my March Glossybox ...

Spring fun - Colouring with Fashion


When I think of Spring, I think of beautiful flowers and warm sunshine. But as I live in the UK, the sunshine and bright weather is not exactly here right now!

With all the rain and dull weather we have been having, it's unfortunately making me a little down and sad, so I've been needing something to help ...

Our day out at West Midlands Safari Park


As a family we love to do days out, but don't get to often do them! So we were thrilled to be able to visit West Midlands Safari Park thanks to a VIP Blogger Pass* I received at the #BloggerHalloweenParty I attended last year! 

I don't often talk about my little family of five here on JinksyBeauty but let me tell you about us. Myself and my hubby have two beautiful children, our daughter Amber who has just turned 8 years old, and our son Leo who turned 11 yesterday! But a family of five though you said? ... Yes well we have a mini shih-tzu called Minnie, but obviously she wasn't allowed to come on the day out with us!

My Love Me Beauty goodies ...


Can you believe it, I have actually never tried Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics before?

Well know I can, with all my Love Me Beauty goodies* ...


Let's start off with how amazing this months edit bag is? It's got to be one of my absolute favourite prints yet! Super cute right?

With these amazing Charlotte Tilbury lipstick samples, they couldn't not focus on these ...


Charlotte Tilbury have some amazing lipsticks from what I have heard, and Love Me Beauty are giving everyone the chance to try out some of their amazing ranges and shades.

I have the Matte Revolution pack, but they also do the legendary Hot Lips and K.I.S.S.I.N.G ranges. Each set is only 10 credits in the Love Me Beauty Boutique. Such a fabulous way to try out such an iconic brand.


I adore Kat Von D Beauty products, they are all incredible quality and are simple a beautiful cosmetics brand. Love Me Beauty have an incredible range on the boutique right now, including the Lock It Concealer, which I'm dying to try out.


And lastly in my Love Me Beauty goodies from this months edit is the amazing range that is Nuxe.

Im a massive fan of the Nuxe guile Prodigieuse Or multi purpose dry oil. 
It can be used on the face, body and hair. I love it for my hair, as it's one of the few that doesn't make my it feel greasy. This is the glitz sparkle version, but they also do it without the glitter. The original version is just as good and my friend has just started using it on her beautiful pregnant tummy, and she says it's lovely for that.


How amazing is this months Love Me Beauty edit?

My favourites of New in Beauty ...


I love new beauty releases, so I thought I would gather together some of my favourites to share with you, including Loreal, Barry M cosmetics, Caudalie and Colab hair. 


One of my favourite skincare launches from last year was the Loreal Pure Clay face masks (blogpost here). So I was thrilled when I saw they had added more to the range, with these matching face washes.


As I'm of oily skin type one of my favourite's of the three to help with this is the purity wash, this helps to cleanse, purify and most importantly mattify! This alone with the face mask really truly are one of the best products I have found to actually make a difference to my oiliness, never have I tried another product as yet that makes me skin feel dry in a good way.


I've always adored any skincare product that contains charcoal, the detox wash helps to cleanse, clarify and detoxify the skin. This I believe is the best option for normal to combination skin types.


And lastly is the glow scrub face wash that helps to cleanse, brighten and exfoliate the skin. This is the best option for more dry skin types but I absolutely adore it for a good old exfoliate. It has tiny micro beads that don't feel too harsh on the skin but help to get rid of any rough patches, leaving my skin feeling super smooth.

These Loreal Pure Clay washes are available in stores at Boots.


A brand new launch from Barry M cosmetics is their Matte Me Up liquid lip paints. They come in five shades on their own or you can purchase three shades with a lip pencil in a lip kit (these are on my wishlist). 

On Superdrug online right now you can purchase these five single shades in a bundle for £15.00, and also receive the chisel cheeks contour kit free when you spent over £8.00.

Im not going to say anymore on these right now, so look out for a feature blogpost with swatches coming soon!


A new hair product release is the Colab paradise dry shampoo*.

First of all, how cute is this packaging? Super bright funky and I'm obsessed with Flamingos so this is already a winner for me!

Ruth Crilly the creator of all things Colab hair had created a beautiful new white residue free dry shampoo that smells of a tropical coconut 'scentsation'! A fab new products available at Superdrug and Feel Unique. RRP £3.49 (200ml).


And lastly for this favourites post is the Caudalie Premier Cru eye cream (£49), new to me.

I must admit eye cream was a part of my skincare routine I used to miss out regularly.

This Caudalie Premier Cru eye cream is an amazing luxury product to help with anti ageing, dark circles (yasss), puffiness, smoothness and brightening of the eye area.


I have been applying this morning and night, using just one pump. It has helped brighten my under eyes, smooth out my skin and fade my darkness, which was much needed. You can really feel a difference from the first use with its luxurious tinted ingredients. It's fragrance free which I think is essential for most, with it being used in the delicate eye area.

And hurry, at the moment you can currently get a FREE 200ml body lotion with purchases of £45 and more, using code BODY17.

Let me know some of your favourites right now.

Stepping into Spring with Landon Tyler


Are you ready for Spring? 
I know I am ...  I'm not sure how much more of this horrible weather I can take! 

Things that always cheer me up are a bit of sunshine, family time, a movie, blanket and a good old candle, and I have a perfect one from Landon Tyler.


Landon Tyler are a new home fragrance company to me, and have recently launched into Boots.


They currently have 12 beautiful scented fragrances all available in single candles, triple candles, diffusers and gift sets in their beautiful smoked glass finish.

I have the Country Meadow triple candle* (£14) which gives up to 30 hours burn time, and really does fill the room with its fresh scent.

It's described as:

'An invigorating fresh scent combining rose, jasmine, neroli, yang and soft musk.'


My verdict: 

I think the packaging on these products is spot on, really classic looking and adds a dash of elegance to any room. Their candles look and feel like they have just stepped out of a Pinterest board, incredible. 
The scent and throw from this candle is just perfect, not too much and not too little. Sometimes candles can be a little overpowering but this is just right for such a beautiful Spring scent.

Go and check them out for yourself


What's your favourite candle/s for Spring?
