She wore Rouge Velvet…

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Christmas, well, actually it has looked a lot like Christmas since mid-October but you get the idea. I swear the lead up to the festive season seems to begin earlier as the years go by. As I mentioned in my previous winter beauty post, around this time of year I tend to have a little reshuffle of my makeup bag. For me, this usually results in switching out nude lip shades for winterberry tones. I also tend to substitute my current foundation with  ...

Dreamy Teas and Heavenly Haircare

Ahhh…yes. It is that time of the month again where I ramble on about how quickly the year seems to be passing. But really though, how is it almost November already? I for one am in no way ready for the Scottish winter weather just yet! The past few weeks have been super busy (and exciting) for me both blog-wise and in real life. Maybe time does pass quicker when you’re having fun eh? This month I also seem to have discovered quite a few fabby products from beauty bits to dreamy  ...

Autumn / Winter Skincare Saviours

During the winter months with chilly days and cold air, I feel that my skin begins to lack two things – luminosity and hydration. Therefore, as I mentioned in my recent glowing skin post – I tend to switch up my beauty routine accordingly. Over the years I have come to realise that having a good base to work with makes makeup application a breeze. It also makes me feel that bit more confident on non-makeup days too.  As I have just recently switched up my skincare routine, I  ...

Barry M Fall in Love Palette Review

Barry M Fall in Love As I have mentioned in previous posts, when it comes to autumnal beauty products, I just can’t get enough of em’! So far, A/W 2017 has been filled with an abundance of exciting new beauty launches from the Rihanna’s fab Fenti line to Loreal’s beautiful Balmain collaboration. However, over the past few weeks, there has been one product that particulalry caught my eye – The Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. Upon first spotting press  ...

Autumnal Beauty Bits : The Lip Edit

As an all-around beauty obsessive, it’s no surprise that one of my favourite things about the changing of the seasons is Autumnal makeup. From deep berry lip shades to sparkly festive eyeshadow, Autumn / Winter is definitely my favourite time of year. This season on the blog, I have decided to create a mini makeup series dedicated to my go-to autumnal beauty bits. Within this series, I will be sharing my ultimate favourite lip shades, eyeshadows, and base products to use at this  ...

Behind the Blog

While I have been blogging now for around a year and a half. I have come to realise that I haven’t actually talked all that much about … myself. Here on Lindsey Lou Blogs, you will find beauty recommendations, travel diaries and foodie finds galore, but I don’t think I’ve ever really introduced myself. As I am challenging myself to blog every weekday this month (what have I signed myself up for), I thought it would be nice to firstly chat a little bit about my life. I personally love  ...

10 Beauty Products I will always Repurchase

With more products available than ever before and shiny new beauty bits being released on the daily, shopping for makeup and skincare can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. Therefore, prior to purchasing,  I tend to ask for recommendations from friends and search for reviews online. I love hearing about the products that people use and love. I’m also especially intrigued by the products that they repurchase time and time again. I feel like this says a lot about a product –  ...

Zoella Beauty Jelly and Gelato Review + My Blogiversary!

When I think back to the inspiration behind starting my blog, there is one person that comes to mind. Yep, that’s right, Zoella. Although this may be considered very “cliche” statement, it is oh so very true. From the age of 17, I have read Zoe’s (beautiful) blog and watched her videos. During this time, I have witnessed the inception and growth of her untouchable brand empire. I feel that Zoe is the perfect example of someone who “Believed she could, so she did”. To me, that is  ...

Not Your Average Beauty Box – Introducing Tili

When it comes to beauty boxes, I have some mixed feelings. On one hand, I love the idea of receiving a stash of magical mystery items as it allows me to try out new products and brands. However, on the other hand,  I really enjoy having a sneak peek at the products I will be receiving (and paying for). This helps to avoid potential disappointment and eliminates the surprise of crazy wild card beauty bits like neon yellow nail polishes or multi coloured mascaras. Ain’t nobody got time  ...

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Review

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturiser Review I don’t know about you but as I am making my way through my twenties I seem to be more and more intrigued by the world of skincare. Is this what they mean by adult-ing? Anyway, I have really enjoyed educating myself about various ingredients and trying out new lotions and potions. However, there has been one particular release which I have been particularly impressed by.  The Hydro Boost Water Gel by Neutrogena. As a combination to oily skin  ...

If we were having Coffee…

Over the past week or so I have read so many of these tag posts and have loved hearing everyone’s take, it has been fab to get “behind the screen” and get to know some of my fellow bloggers a little bit better. Today I thought that I would write my very own. To be honest, I have been a little bit out of touch with the old blog recently, so what better way to ease back in than a little coffee catchup? So here goes… If we were having coffee I would tell you that in addition to  ...

Loreal Pure Clay Glow Mask Review

Pure Clay Glow Mask As mentioned in a few of my previous  posts I have really been enjoying trying out new skincare bits recently, especially specialised treatments like serums and masks. Therefore, whenever a drugstore brand releases a new skincare product I am more than keen to get my hands on them. This week, one release which caught my eye was Loreal’s range of Pure Clay masks. The range consists of three masks, which each perform various tasks. The “Purity Mask” is  ...

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Split Review

As you may know I recently visited the U.S to do some travelling, and well, for me a trip to America is never complete without a sneaky peek in Sephora. As I am attempting to slimline my beauty drawer, prior to entering the store I had just a few products on my my wish list and at the very top was Becca’s Champagne Pop highlighter. Since the release of champagne pop and Jaclyn Hill’s collaboration line I have read so many rave reviews about the products and have been intrigued as to what I  ...

Back to Uni “One and Done” Beauty.

For most people out there, late nights and early rises will become the norm whilst studying at university. As a student myself, this means that I am always on the lookout for quick and easy beauty products which speed up my morning routine and ensure that I am out the door and on that 9am train. As part of my “University Life” series , I thought I would write up a little beauty post featuring my favourite “one and done” beauty bits which are my absolute saviours when  ...

Bourjois Volume Reveal Mascara

Back in the day, I was all about that Bourjois clubbing mascara /spider lashes look, however I can’t remember the last time I purchased any sort of eye product from the brand. I have so much love for their foundations and CC creams, I actually feel that they’re the best in the drugstore. However, I never seem to gravitate their counter when it comes to eye products. Recently whilst browsing the Bourjois counter in Boots, I stumbled across their new Volume Reveal Mascara and have pretty much  ...

NYX Ultimate Palette Review

I have to say, NYX have absolutely been slaying the makeup game these days.  I have fallen completely head over heels for the brand and feel that they are constantly releasing consistently great quality, on trend products – and their latest release is no exceptiion.  Over the last year I have been swooning over warm tone neutral eyeshadow palettes so naturally, when I spotted NYX’s contribution, I just about died Whilst browsing in their stand alone store in Barcelona, I  ...

Don’t Kill my Vibe.

    SO, if you had talked to me a few years ago about the power of positive thinking, I probably would have silently judged you and thought you were a bit deluded. I distinctly remember one of my favourite teachers from school hosting a screening of “The Secret” and claiming that it was an amazing / inspirational watch. Of course, my class mates and I went along – but only for the free popcorn and sweets. However, since this seed was planted way back in 2012, I’ve really  ...

Brows, Brows, Brows!

Over the past year or so, it seems that  everyone and their granny have been on a quest to achieve “on flique” brow status and along the way we have witnessed an abundance of hot new brow releases – from both ends of the beauty brands spectrum. However, with so many options available out there it can all seem a bit mind-boggling. From powders and gels to “pomades”, the options are endless. When it comes to my brows, I tend to go for something a little more natural for  ...

Graduation: One Year On.

Roughly this time last year I was graduating from my undergraduate degree, and honestly I was having a bit of a panic! Commencing the hunt for a “grown up” job seemed incredibly daunting and the thought of beginning a new degree seemed equally as terrifying.

Low Cost Lippies – The Nude Edit

When it comes to beauty, lipsticks are most definitely my Vice – nude ones especially. Whilst rooting through my (overloaded) beauty drawer I noticed that the majority of my favourite nude shades are actually from the drugstore and honestly,  with more and more high street brands releasing fab finishes and formulas I really feel that there is little / no need to splurge on higher end lip products – unless they are truly special or unique. Today I thought I would share a few of  ...

Blush Pinks and Quirky Prints

Over the past few weeks I have been picking up a few summer bits and bobs from the highstreet and thought it would be cool to share my favourite picks.  As I’m not jetting of on holiday until the end of August I’ve been trying my best to be sensible and  pick up pieces which will work in both rain and shine – even though this season’s beachwear has been extremely tempting!   First Up – The Bomber Jacket I’m not usually one to wear light, pastel  ...
