I am currently running a giveaway over on my Youtube channel for a great big box of Maxfactor goodies. Including the whole Wild Collection which I talked about in this introduction post here. I promise full reviews are coming soon but you can see some of the products in action in the two makeup looks that I've done within the video. To enter you must be subscribed to my Youtube channel and then comment something, anything. It really doesn't matter what you say as long as your comment in there! Read the T&C's over in the bottom bar on the video page. But all you really need to know is that the giveaway ends on August 5th and that the winner will be announced via a video sometime after that! Best of luck! And if you decide to take on my Wild Beauty Challenge please remember to leave it as a video response so I can watch your interpretations of the looks!

wireless festival with birchbox

A few weeks ago I went to Wireless Festival with Birchbox (see my full post here) but before I went along they treated me to a hair styling session over at the KMS Salon. As the wearther was predicted to bve one of the hottest days of the year I decided to go for a side braid. I've done sidebraids before but nothing like the one they did on me. I had a reverse braid on the top going around into a really fancy fishtail braid. We then topped it off with a cute little floral headband that Boohoo gave me. I hadn't expected to have such a girly hairstyle so I did have to quickly call up my housemate for a outfit change.  Wearing my hair up was one of the best ideas ever as it kept me cool while also looking super stylish. I had my nails painted in Color Clubs's Reign in Spain which is a beautiful poppy coral pink. Super punchy and really eye-catching.  I was also given a awesome goody bag which included Twistband, The BalmCoola. I've found the Twistbands super useful as they are so easy to use and no snags or lines in my hair!

A big thank you to Birchbox for taking me along, and the wonderful people at the salon getting me festival ready! Birchbox is a beauty subscription service where you can subscribe for £10 a month and get a variety of beauty and lifestyle samples sent to your door. I personally think it is one of the better Subscription boxes out there as the variety is more noticeable and their are good variety within the boxes!

Bourjois Colour Boosts in Peach on The Beach, Red Sunrise and Orange Punch: £7.99*

I've been meaning to review these for a while now and they've been sitting in my to review box. The Bourjois Colour boosts are the latest addition to the Chubby Lip pencil game. Although I've not really been sold on the whole Chubby Lips trend (when will it end) I was excited to see the shade range in these. Colour Boost comes in four eye popping shades including Red Sunrise (summery red raspberry), Fushia Libre (bright pink with a hint of blue), Orange Punch (orange with a hint of red) and Peach On The Beach (pinky orange). The formula melts into the lips leaving a veil of colour and shine. Non sticky, super glossy and feel really lovely on the lips.

ready... lets... go...

Max Factor Mega Volume Mascara, Max Factor Wild Shadow Pencils,Max Factor Wild Shadow Pots

Today I had a meeting with Max Factor to introduce  and talk me through the new Wild Collection. Although there are some items from Max Factor I adore (their polishes and False Lash effect!) Max Factor seem to have much older audience and therefore a lot of their products are aimed towards 30+ women. They felt they were really lacking more youthful and coloured focused products. So here's where The Wild Collection comes in. Max Factor's boldest, most eye catching a vibrant collection from the to date. The products from this launch include a super chubby mascara un the form of the Wild Mega Volume Mascara, Wild Shadow pencils and new Wild Shadow pots.

Max Factor Wild Mega Volume Mascara (RRP: £6.99) has been designed with short hollow soft bristles with an hourglass shape. Claiming to blacken the lashes instantly while also plumping up the volume of the lashes for high impact looks day or night. Max Factor Wild Shadow Pencils (RRP: £5.99) come in 8 eye catching shades including Savage Silver (bright, clean silver), Vicious Moss (a darkened green), Fierce Lime (a punchy bright green), Untamed Pink (muted pink), Caramel Rage (chocolate brown), Bold Sapphire (a smokey blue), Brazen Gold (yellow gold) and Blue Ice Fury (a cool blue). These are called "gel pencils" which combine cream shadow and eyeliner in one. These would be great to add a pop of colour, line the eye or smudged all over for a effortless smokey eye. The gel like texture gives bold colour instantly and blends out like a dream. The Max Factor Wild Shadow Pots (£6.99) promise to bring big impactful colour to the lids. These are great because they and can be applied wet and dry, and when they are used wet the pigment is insane. With names like Untamed Green, Defiant White and Turquoise Fury these are packed full of pigment and create high impact when worn. I especially like Feral Brown, Sapphire Rage and Pale Pebble.

I spent some time  Mel Arter, a Max Factor Makeup artist and we created two looks using the new Wild Collection products. She showed me how to use the products to get the best possible pay off and some creative ways to include brights into my daily makeup. She demonstrated this on me by creating a blue cat eye using the Max Factor Wild Shadow Pot in Sapphire Rage and a small angled brush. This created a simple twist on how I normally do my makeup but bringing some colour into the look. I actually really liked it and I've worn it all day. Mel gave me the two face charts and I'm going to be recreating them at home in the near future so watch this space!
