If you haven't guessed yet, I am a HUGE makeup, skincare and overall beauty fan. So when I found out that I had won a hugely wonderful collection of bits from the new beauty box company, Tili (you may have seen some pictures on my Instagram story, after it came in the post) I was over the moon.
First off, I want to say a huge thank you to the wonderful ladies at Tilli Beauty, I was a tad over whelmed with what was in the box!
The product I was most excited about was the Becca Backlight Priming Filter. I have been after some Becca products for months, but sadly they are a bit expensive. This is such a beautiful primer. Seriously. You only need one pump and it is enough to cover pretty much your whole face. It gives a wonderful glow to the skin and I have found the my makeup stays on the whole day (which is perfect during this weather, as I have extremely oily skin).
If you have followed me for a while, you may know that I am a big tan fan (fake, because I'm pale and burn like a little crisp). They also sent me the Vita Liberata Phenomenal 3 week tan. Yes, you read that right- 3 weeks! I love that this tan dries so quickly, which means that you wont end up with orange sheets or whatever. Plus, there is literally no smell to it AT ALL. It's like my fake tan dreams have been realised. Stay posted to hear more about it (colour depth and what have you) as I'm sure it will end up in its own little post very soon. Of course,they also sent me the tanning mitt to go with it, for extra smooth application.
Continuing the theme of skincare, they sent me a lot. I was a bit giddy. First, is the highly coverted Alphah Liquid Gold. It is wonderful. It acts as a nighttime exfoliating serum, which leaves your skin feeling and look firm, toned and smooth. The downside? If I was to buy this after this bottle runs out, I could easily be looking at a £50 price tag.
They were also kind enough to send me a bottle of Elemis Smart Cleanse Micellar Water (which is incredible at taking off your make up), and the Bareminerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion (a bit of a mouthful). I put this on morning and night after washing my face and I truly feel it helps my skin deal with everything that will be chucked on it during the day- makeup, sun cream, sweat (ew, I know, but it's summer)! It also helps my skin to look more awake if I had a late night or an early morning. Again sadly, I need to think carefully about repurchasing this, as it too does have a big price tag.
Essie is one of my favourite nail polish brands, so I was SO happy to find that they had sent me a bottle of 'Ballet Slippers'. It's a lovely pale pink, which is so perfect for everyday wear, as it goes with almost every outfit. It also dries really quickly and with a lovely shine, which is great for when you're in a bit of a rush (like before going to work or going on a night out).
Finally, I was given Nexxus' Caviar Complex shampoo and conditioner. I have to admit, I am new to this brand, but i have already fallen in love with it after only a couple if washes! It has made my hair so soft and nourished, and smells incredible. Not sure how i'm going to be able to go back to standard hair products after this!
If you are interested in any of the products mentioned in this post, you can get them in the brand new Tili Beauty Box.
Although, I was sent these products, I won them in a competition. I am not being paid, asked nor sponsored to write this post and all opinions are mine, and are completely honest. x
