NYX Matte Lip Cream | Review & Swatches

If you read my recent NYX cosmetics mini haul, you'll know that I raved about their matte lip cream in Abu Dhabi, and that it has become my go- to lip of choice since I got it. I've been so impressed with it, in fact, that I've added another 5 shades to my collection- CannesStockholmAthens, Milan and Copenhagen.

Instagram Round Up | Miami

Last week I did a little Instagram round up of my trip to Coachella and Los Angeles (you can read it here) and today I will be talking about my trip to Miami. I flew there from LA, which took around 5 hours, and was extra excited for this stop as it was the only place I visited that I had never been to before. I stayed in the very beautiful Fountainebleau hotel on South Beach, and spent 3 days there soaking up the sun, as well as trying to see as much of Miami as possible.

NYC Sephora Haul

The last stop on my recent USA trip was New York, and being a typical beauty blogger, I couldn't wait to get to Sephora and add to my makeup collection. Despite not needing any new makeup whatsoever, I picked up a few key pieces, some that I have been wanting to try for a while, and others that I discovered whilst in store.

Instagram Round Up | Coachella & Los Angeles

If you're already following My So Kohl'd Life on Instagram, you will know that last month I went on the most amazing holiday to Los Angeles, Miami and New York with 3 girlfriends, and whilst there tried to snap as much as possible. The main reason for the trip was to go to Coachella music festival (bucket list, ticket) and today's post is a little Instagram round up of the first leg of my trip. Keep reading to see what I got up to in Los Angeles and at Coachella.

High Street vs High End | In Shower Self Tanner Review

Last summer, St Tropez launched an innovative new product that was set to change our tanning regime forever. Their 'In Shower Gradual Tanner' was the first of it's kind on the market, promising to give a gradual bronzed glow in just 3 minutes, without even stepping out of the shower. Of course I snapped up the product (read my initial review here) and despite a few reservations at first, I did grow to love it. Fast forward a year, and high street favourite Rimmel have launched their own in shower tanner, and this one claims to work in just 1 minute. So, does it work? And which is better, the high street or the high end...?

NYX Cosmetics Mini Haul

I'm always a sucker for an affordable makeup brand, so when I started to hear lots of hype about NYX cosmetics, I just had to jump on the bandwagon. Dubbed as a 'professional makeup brand' but at drugstore prices and priding itself on being a cruelty free brand, I couldn't wait to see what all the fuss was about, and snapped up 3 key pieces that have become makeup bag staples since I started using them. First up, my favourite lip colour of the moment, 'Abu Dhabi...'
