    My First Glossier Purchase

    My First Glossier Purchase | Essential Twenty

    Everyone has been raving about Glossier for a good year or two now, and whilst I’ve been dying to try it, there’s something about the shipping companies that scare me a little. I don’t want to be stuck with a £30 fee on a £10 order! But last week Glossier hit the UK and I think pretty much everyone on my twitter feed has picked something up. You’re probably sick of all the hauls, but this is just a little one – I promise!

    Empties, September 2017

    Empties, September 2017 | Essential Twenty

    I didn’t think I’d finished up that many beauty products this month until I pulled out the drawer I store them in last night. Oh boy, have I used up a lot of products! A few makeup products, the odd bit of haircare and a variety of other goodies. A lot of products I’ve used up before, or previously reviewed, so expect to see some favourites in this month’s empties post!

    Urban Decay Naked Heat, 2 Months On & A Giveaway

    Urban Decay Naked Heat | Essential Twenty

    It’s been around 3 months since the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette* presale, and 2 months since I got my hands on it. Plenty of people have shared their thoughts and I thought it was about time I did the same. Whilst this isn’t going to be really in depth, I just want to talk about it quickly as I know people will be putting together their Christmas lists soon. I’ve also got a giveaway over on twitter so you can even win your very own Urban Decay Naked Heat palette!

    Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

    Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder | Essential Twenty

    For the past 5 years or so I’ve been pretty loyal to the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. It takes the shine off, it lasts all day and it’s a bargain! However, I’ve started to notice that my undereyes have been creasing so I need something a little stronger. For about 10 times the price of my trusty Rimmel powder, I picked up the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. It gets rave reviews on YouTube but is it worth the hefty price point?

    Face Mask Friday: Nip + Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask

    A while ago I picked up a pack of two Nip + Fab masks. I haven’t tried anything from them in the past, and thought this was a great way to introduce myself to the brand. We know I love a face mask so I was eager to try them out! Today I’m talking about my impressions of the Nip + Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask, which definitely wasn’t what I expected to be.

    Creating Your Perfect Canvas

    REN Perfect Canvas | Essential Twenty

    Recently I’ve found PR packages few and far between. Whilst this may seem sad to some, this has been great for me. I’m trying to declutter my life and alongside this, I’ve been able to really try out new products for a reasonable period of time. At the back end of August REN Perfect Canvas* was launched, their first almost-makeup product amongst their fantastic skincare line.
