Charcoal and Volcanic Soil - The Pore Cleansing Face Mask with Sea Salt | H&M - Review

Face Masks have got to be the best part of my skincare routine. Whether its a clay mask, bubble mask, sheet mask or even a DIY Home Made Mask - I love it. There is something so rewarding about applying them to my face, sitting back and relaxing and having smooth, glowy skin a little while later.

So while I was browsing through the beauty department in H&M at Westfield I couldn't help but pick up a few of their face masks - Not only did they look so cute in their packaging, they were also so reasonably priced so I have to snap them up.

In typical form it was the mask that promised to help me with one of my major skincare woes - Pores!!

How To Create a Flawless Finish With Rodial | 3 Easy Steps

I'm sure many of my readers have heard about the brand Rodial during their online beauty browsing sessions - From head turning ingredients such as Dragon's Blood, Bee Venom and Snake the brand really intrigued me to say the least. So when I got the chance to try out some of the brand's products I jumped at the chance and have been super impressed by the flawless finish a combination of their products provided me with and it's now become my GO-TO routine when I want that dewy, healthy looking skin (Let's be honest, I want that every single day..).

Goodbye Pigmentation | Thalgo Clearing Corrector Review x Abloomnova

So when I'm asked what my skincare "problem areas" are the first thing I shout is "Pigmentation and Scarring". Firstly, I'd admit a large amount of my scarring has resulted from me being impatient and wanting to get rid of every spot on my face the moment it appears (let's not act we haven't all done it before) but I like to blame my Pigmentation on "genetics", because I know you fellow Indian girls can relate to this, but I'm also sure the lack of SPF in my daily skincare routine has something to do with the fact certain areas of my face are darker than others.

Maybelline Master Kajal Eye Liner - Hit Or Miss?

Eye Liner has got to be one of my favourite make up products to experiment with. Where most beauty lovers love to switch up their lip colour depending on their mood - You can always catch me with a different eyeliner colour depending on the season (or which one is sharpened in the morning)

So when I saw Maybelline's Master Kajal Liner I was suckered in by the unusual packaging and shape and the first swatch had me sold. 


Monday 10 October 2016


There's a new mask on the market so you know it wasn't going to be long till I got my hands on it! Clay masks have been my favourite skincare product for a long while now and as I've just finished my Cattier Paris - Masque Argile Mask  the boots deal on these new L'Oreal masks could not have come at a better time.

Life / Career / Home Update - Why I Haven't Been Blogging..

Long time no blog!

It's been about 3 months or so since I've sat down in front of my laptop and just typed away and I've missed it SO much!

So I thought, before I go back to bombarding you guys with all the product reviews I've been dying to shout about, we should have a quick catch up and explain why I've been missing from the blogging world for over 3 months.

SO much has changed since the last time I blogged so let's start with some exciting news:

MUA Luxe | Bronzed Shimmer Stick | Review & Swatch

MUA have been killing the game recently! They are so on point with keeping up with all the new hypes in the beauty industry and their new "MUA LUXE" range has hit the nail on the head with their Bronzed Shimmer Stick!

Whilst casually browsing through the make up aisles in Superdrug this little beauty caught my eye! State the word "Bronzed" and I'm all over it! After one swatch of this in store I was sold and it made it's way home with me.

L'Oreal Sculpt Range | HIT or MISS?

If you are a beauty fanatic like me you would have heard about the new, exciting L'Oreal Paris Sculp range that's hit our drugstores over the last few weeks. As soon as I saw the new products out in stores I knew I had to get my hands on a few goodies to see what all the hype was about and obviously within no time it's made it's way onto my blog.

Beauty Snappers You NEED To Be Following

Are you a snapchat addict like me? Is it one of the most used apps on your phone? Do the new filters keep you entertained for hours like it does for me?

Well whilst you can expect random filtered selfies and meal pics from me from my account (atanna), Snapchat has also become one of my go-to platforms to kill some time and escape into someone else's virtual life for a while! As much as I enjoy watching girls mime songs into the camera with their brows and pout on point (sense my sarcasm?), Snapchat is one of my favourite places to go to keep up with my favourite beauty bloggers and youtubers.

So here are the Snappers YOU need to be following to really be in the loop...

Battle of The Hot Cloth Cleansers | Liz Earle Vs Superdrug | Save or Splurge?

Like many of you I have been a huge fan of Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish - Hot Cloth Cleanser ever since that beauty made it's way home with me from duty free last year! The muslin cloths have gone through hell and back with me and at times have looked an absolute mess but the product was something I could definitely justice paying a slightly higher price for. I loved the ease at which it removed my make up and how gentle it was on my skin and I become a serial repurchaser and ride or die Liz Earle fan..

But for me, a UK Blogger, the process of getting my hands on the BH Cosmetics - Carli Bybel Palette was not an easy feat!

Look I'm sticking to it! Another month and it's another Birchbox unboxing post to show you the samples I got my hands on this month. I'd love to be so excited by this box but if I'm being honest only one or two of the items have that WOW factor and the rest are products that haven't changed my make up or skin care routine in anyway..

#BargainBeauty | Real Techniques/MakeUpRevolution Dupe

Make Up Brushes.. Every single time I end up writing a post about some of the newbies I've added to my collection I always have to put out a disclaimer and state I DO NOT NEED ANY NEW BRUSHES. Yet this is never enough to stop me getting my hands on some new items that I've somehow convinced myself I need. However, this time it's different. This time I'm so proud of myself. This time I've found my self the ultimate bargain and I'm so pleased to share it with all my lovely readers.

Beauty Crowd | Haul + Swatches - Under £20

I am an absolute sucker for email marketing. As soon as a notification pops up on my screen mentioning the words "Sale" "Reductions" or "Discount" I can't help but have a gander. (Honestly, sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night to get a glass of water, have a quick check on my phone and 10 minutes later I'm browsing make up and fashion websites to try pick up a good deal). So when beauty crowd announced they were having a HUGE 50% off sale across their whole website I knew I had to take a look and add more to my make up collection (because a sale is the perfect justification to buy make up I never really need.)

15 Things You Should Know Before Dating A Girl Who Blogs? | Response to Cosmo

Let me start this off by saying “I might be mad that I gave this attention” (word to Drake) but I came across this article on Cosmo the other day and after a browse through my Twitter Feed I know a lot of my fellow bloggers were as confused, outraged and out right disrespected by the blog posts entitled “15 things you should know before dating a girl who blogs”.

Barry M Flawless Brightening Primer | Review

You all know I’m a sucker for an amazing primer. From one of my first ever blog posts earlier this year, The Ultimate Drugstore Primer Battle, you can see my run down of some of the best and worst primers on in the drugstore yet I still found the need to get my hands on another one.. because I’m THAT obsessed.

So when I was in boots a few weeks ago this little beaut caught my eye and I thought I’d give it a go!

Birchbox Unboxing | January 2016

Another month, another delightful little package from Birchbox! I can't believe that after 8 monthly boxes of goodness I am finally uploading my first ever Birchbox Unboxing post! I'm not going to lie, I've always planned on doing them. As soon as I open my parcel and reveal all the goodies I have every single intention to snap a few pics and get it up on the blog! The reason it doesn't happen? Simply because I can't help myself and I start playing with all my treats and before I know it a couple of weeks have past and I haven't got the post up yet so I say..Okay next month?

Orange Concealers | LA GIRL/COLOURS | Review

While browsing through my local Beauty Base I stumbled across the HUGE LA Girl / LA Colours make up counter and was in awe! They had such a huge array of different types of make up from face bases, to eyeshadows to nail varnishes and even a few application tools! So after telling my boyfriend to entertain himself in the Men's Fragrances section for a while I had a quick look through what they had on offer and these two beauties caught my eye.
