It feels like such a long time since I’ve spoken about anything beauty or skincare related but having some lovely bits for Christmas (how long ago does that feel!?), I thought it was only right that I dust off my Beauty on Trial series. For those of you who are fairly new to Musings & More, Beauty on Trial is a series where I give you the low down on beauty and skincare products I’ve managed to get my mitts on! I always allow 2-3 weeks for testing, simply for fairness and so the product has the chance to do its thang. They aren’t always new products but rather new to me. Now let’s get started shall we?

It’s likely that now the weather is starting to get colder, your wardrobe choices have started to include big jumpers, scarfs and boots. But what about your skincare? There are a lot of different factors such as indoor heating and lower air humidity that can make a difference to our skin, making it dull, sensitive and dehydrated, so it’s worth thinking about what you can do to help yourself.

Well hello there September! There was a time when bloggers used to do ‘favourite’ posts monthly, myself included.

So naturally, everyone is terribly excited about the Naked Heat palette. It’s not surprising considering how bloody gorgeous it is, but this week I thought I’d take a look at some other Urban Decay products worthy of winning your affections. Urban Decay will forever be one of those brands I turn to. Not only is their packaging incredibly high quality but so is are the products themselves and as they cover such a wide range of options, there really is something for everyone.

I love getting to know a beauty brand I’ve never used before. There’s a whole range of products to test and get to know and there’s just something quite nice about unwrapping a new lipstick or mascara and not yet knowing it’s potential. So I was really excited when I was sent a collection of No7* products to play with, having recently only been sticking to tried and tested favourites. Naturally, I wanted to let you know my thoughts. So let’s get started shall we?
