Beauty Advent Calendars 2014

I know it’s only October and Halloween isn’t even over yet but I feel like I have to talk to you about these goodies know. I’ve always wanted one of those beauty advent calendars but I’ve never gotten round to getting one. This year I finally got one. I bought mine from KICKS so it’s only available in Sweden, Norway and Finland but there are so many good beauty advent calendars and they sell out like nobody’s business so I thought I would share some of them with you!

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads Review

I'm not a big fan of waking up early in the morning. It takes about half an hour for me to actually get out of bed after I wake up. The problem is that I'm often running late and even though I want to use and exfoliating toner (like the Pixi Glow Tonic) I can't be bothered to faff around with cotton pads and all that stuff. I mean, it doesn't take that much time but there must be a quicker way, right? When I was in New York I decided to try the Facial Radiance Pads from First Aid Beauty and I'm in love!
 
 
I like that they are pre-soaked since that just makes everything so much more convenient for me. However, it don't just use them because I can't be bothered to look for some cotton pads, the product itself is amazing. It contains lactic and glycolic acids to lightly exfoliate the face, indian gooseberries to tone and then some lemon peel and licorice root to brighten! Sounds amazing, don't you think?
 
 
My skin tone is more even after I started using these, it looks and feels smoother and I've had less breakouts. What I also really like is that it's not too harsh. My skin is a tiny bit sensitive and this doesn't sting, make my face red and it's not drying. They're a bit pricey, £20.50 for 60 pads (which is about £0.34/pad) but to me it's worth it. They're easy to use, easy to get hold of and they do wonders for my skin!
 
You can order them from Feelunique.com, and as I said, they retail for £20.50!

Smokey Cranberry Eyes

Woah, long time no see! My university is basically trying to kill me. I'm in the middle of my fifth semester and it's not fun! Enough of that, I have still made videos for my youtube channel so if you want to see more of me you can always check that out. However, I'm going to try to post something not video related here once a week. That sounds reasonable, right?
 
Aaaaanyway, I bought Cranberry from MAC last summer and it's mega gorgeous. Have I used it? Once. So, it was time to give it a go again. This time I paired it with some dark brown and a bit of sparkle on the lower lash line. This is what it looked like:
