Due to being rather ill over the past few weeks I’ve had to miss out on all of the festivals I had planned to go along to with Ollie. Most people will know that festivals are one of my favourite things to do & it doesn’t feel like a proper summer to me without going to at least one, so obviously I was pretty upset to be missing out.

This little package from Selfridges really cheered me up though, crammed full of a mixture of necessities, staples & a couple of really fun products too, it’s the ultimate girly festival kit & I’ve loved playing around with & testing them all out whilst stuck at home. The boxes are super limited edition & have a total product value of £110, but Selfridges are selling them for a tiny £25! Get one here before they sell out!

Despite most of these products being things I wouldn’t usually choose, as they’re not my usual ‘look’, I’ve found some new favourites amongst them. The Illamasqua liquid metal is beautiful used subtly as a highlighter for cheek & brow bones, the golden tinged pewter colour makes it super flattering & it has just the right amount of shimmer too. I really want to try it as a base for a nighttime smokey eye also, with lots of black shadow layered over the top. The Azature nail polish is possibly my favourite thing in the box, a lovely golden nude, I love that the colour is so subtle & neutral, yet it has the most over the top shimmer when the light hits it. I’ve been wearing it since it arrived & the magpie in me is making it impossible to stop staring at my nails! The Eyeko eyeliner is another stand out – obviously I love eyeliner, but it’s always been black for me, so who knew I would find this navy one so appealing. It is an almost black-ish blue, so very wearable, but that hint of colour makes it seem really modern & a nice alternative to the usual black.

I’ve also had more fun than I probably should have giving myself a faux pink ombre with the Coloursmash hair shadow. I’ve had the spray versions of this in goodie bags before, but they never show up on my almost-black hair, this one however is super bright (though more purple on my dark hair) & washed out effortlessly too.

PS: Sorry for the lack of outfit posts this week, I’ve barely left my house with this awful week long migraine & lack of sleep. Things will be back to normal next week!

    I hope you’re feeling a bit better now lovely – it sucks that you didn’t get to go to the festivals, especially due to illness. This does look like a good pick-me-up though – full of shiny new things! I’d love to see the ombre purple hair you gave yourself – sounds fab! Was the product similar to hair chalk? I really love the effects of those but the reviews said they were so messy! Love the sound of the black/blue eyeliner too :) xxx

      Yeah, it’s really annoying, especially as the doctors are still unable to offer any kind of advice! Gah! But, yeah, this was such a nice pick me up! :)
      The hair shadow did look cool, I mean I wouldn’t wear it day to day, but for a festival it’d be a nice change. It is like chalk, your hands get pretty messy when you’re putting it in, but then you set it with hairspray & I didn’t notice much colour transfer after that. I wouldn’t wear white clothing with it tho – to be on the safe side!

    That box looks gorgeous, I loved Selfridges when I was in the UK. Illamasqua is one of my new loves so I’ll have to check that highlighter out.
    Get well soon!

      Thankyou! Ah, Selfridges is heaven isn’t it?! I wasn’t too impressed with the first thing I brought from Illamasqua a while ago, a primer, but this highlighters made me think I ought to check them out again! :)

      Thankyou! I agree, it’s nice to get something that you wouldn’t usually pick up, it can be surprising how much you like it! :)

      Thankyou :) The lip applique is the only thing I’ve not tried, I’m a little scared to! Haha!

    What a fun idea! I’ve done several posts on rave/festival makeup and it’s totally an awesome niche!

    Do have an occasional migraine from time to time (like before THAT time of the month) or it is persistent? I suffered from chronic migraine for 6 years, until I went to the naturopath and she discovered that I am intolerant to dozens of foods (before I went to a bunch of doctors ;/) . Also, I take natural vitamins. No more migraines, I feel like in paradise. I still have some headache at my periods, and sometimes a occasional one in the periods too, but 97% is gone. I hope I have helped.
