Is it wrong to buy designer copies?

As most of you know, I'm currently a student, so it's no surprise that designer items are way out of my price range. While I can't afford the real thing, I have bought myself a few fakes in the past (two of which are above) and as the quality of them is so obviously nowhere near as good as the real thing, I didn't really see an issue with the buying and selling of them. All you have to do is type in 'Mulberry copy' and you'll find hundreds of links to copies of their classic designs for a fraction of the price, but is buying a copy really wrong?


Korres Quince Lip Butter

Korres Lip Butter-£8 (here)

The Korres Lip Butters have been a bit of a cult beauty blogger product for a few years now, so I've been really curious to test one out and see what I think. At £8, they're a lot more expensive than your standard lip balm, and normally I wouldn't even consider buying one purely because of that. Luckily, I won this in a giveaway recently, and I couldn't wait to test it out and see if it was really worth the price tag.


Nanshy MARVEL Blending Sponge.

Nanshy Blending Sponge*-£5.95 (pre-order here)

Believe it or not, I've actually never tried a makeup blending sponge before. I've heard rave reviews of the beauty blender, but I've personally always been a fan of brushes and it's fairly expensive, so I never gave it a go. Luckily, Nanshy sent me over their latest launch (it'll be available for purchase in early February), the Marvel 4 in 1 blending sponge!


Battle of the Swertheart Blushes!

Too Faced Sweetheart Blusher-£24
Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts-£4.99

Can you guess which is which? If I'm honest there only realy differences between the two is the packaging, and even those differences are fairly minimal! On the left is Too Faced and on the right is Makeup Revolution, and purely because of pricing, I have to say I really do prefer Makeup Revolution's version. Obviously, the shades I have from each brand are different, so unfortunately I can't compare that.


January Collective Haul!

Hello everyone, I'm finally back to making YouTube videos! I've had a couple of weeks off, mainly due to moving back to uni, but I'm back with a nice big collective haul. I've had lots of bits and pieces arrive over the padt couple of weeks so I thought I would share them all with you. Next week will be my January favourites, so keep an eye out for that!


Sniffy Wiffy body cream

Sniffy Wiffy body cream*-£6.50 (here)

I think I may have just found the most perfect body cream ever. Sniffy Wiffy is a brand that I discovered through the Blogger's hub and I'm so glad that I have, not only do their body products smell amazing, but a donation is made to CoppaFeel for each female product sold and Ballboys for each male product sold.


Off The Shoulder Sweetheart

This dress was another Boxing day bargain, I can't believe it's taken me so long to feature it! This was just £5 in the Primark sale, and definitely worth every penny as it's a perfect fit. For this outfit I decided to keep it simple with black heels and a Dauphines of new York headband, but it would also look gorgeous with a nice statement necklace.


Keep it safe, guys.

Makeup Revolution Protection palette*-£6 each (here)

I think it's clear my mind's in the gutter with the new Makeup Revolution palettes, but of course the sort of protection they're referring to is for your makeup. Packed into one palette, you get three cream concealers, a setting powder and a contour kit, what more could a girl want?! I have the palette in the shade light, and I have to say, it's a really good match for my skintone!


Soap and Glory||Tips and Toes

Hand Dream Super Cream-£7
Heel Genius-£5.50

I treated myself to the Next Big Thing box for Christmas, and slowly but surely I'm working my way through the products and reviewing them as I go! Today I have something for your tips and toes, Heel Genius and Hand Dream Super Cream!


New Look Earrings

Aztec earrings-£1.49 (sale item)
Floral earrings-£2 (sale item)

If there's one thing I'm not really into, it's accessorising. I have a nice little jewellery box filled to the brim with necklaces and earrings, but they rarely get worn! Therefore, when I do buy jewellery, I often go for pieces that I think will go with lots of different outfits, rather than statement pieces.
