Ideal World TV Beauty Products

I’ve been trying a selection of beauty products which are available exclusively in the UK through Ideal World TV, who have an extensive range of makeup and skincare brands available on both their TV Channel & online shop. I have been aware of them for some time now but they’re constantly adding new product lines and always offering incredible deals. I thought I would share with you a few of the products, so you can get a little insight into a couple of the brands available.

Liquilift Slender Wrap

These come in a pack of 4, you place the wrap around the target area and they say you will see the best results if you’re able to leave it on overnight (not sure how comfortable that would be). These wraps are designed to smooth, tighten, hydrate skin leaving it more slender. These contain skin-loving ingredients including, Seaweed, Ivy, Rosemary, Jojoba, Menthol and a range of essential vitamins. I love a face mask but not sure how I feel about a body wrap. I guess the results may be short-lived, I haven’t used this yet & if I am honest I’m not overly excited to.

Beauty Pro Rejuvenating Collagen Mask

Now, this is 100% more my cup of tea. Sheet masks are so popular right now and I love using them. If you’re new to the craze that is the sheet mask, they’ve been hugely popular in Korea for years and are a one use cotton / cloth mask saturated in powerful ingredients to help keep your skin looking its best. There are so many varieties on the market and are specific to your skin needs. This one from Beauty Pro is formulated with Green Tea Extract which combats oil, rehydrates skin and gives your skin a beautiful healthy glow. This one has a great amount of liquid which feels cooling and relaxing on the skin, I left this on for a little over 20 minutes, my skin felt instantly hydrated and did look fresher. These masks are great to travel with as they’re compact and help refresh skin after flying, or during your long haul flight if you’re brave enough to apply it. These come in a pack of 5 individual masks.

Elizabeth Grant Firming Eye Pads

These eye pads are on a similar vein to the sheet masks but these are specifically a treatment for your under eye area. These are so easy to apply and give an instant result to puffy tired eyes. I leave them on for as long as I can, to get every ounce of benefit out of them. They’re great to use before an important event or again after travelling and help revive and brighten your under eye. After I take them off I pat in what product is left under my eye. You get 12 sets in each pack.

Elizabeth Grant Hydra Cell Active Hand Cream

This is a nice rich but lightweight hand cream it helped hydrate my hands and stop them looking dry. Its lightweight  formula sinks in quickly but leaves hands feeling protected. You can never own too many hand creams, I have them stashed all over the place but especially in my car and handbag.

Elizabeth Grant Wonder Effect Glycolic Mask

I have yet to put this to the test but Glycolic Acid products are really popular in the beauty world right now because of its exfoliating and skin rejuvenating qualities. This mask is a creamy, hydrating clay mask and loaded with 10% glycolic acid and Torricelum.  The mask helps draw out deep impurities, encourages healthy new skin cells to reveal themselves, tightens pores, reduces lines, and moisturises. So with all those potential benefits I am excited to use this.

Skin Dimitri James Makeup

Skinn Cosmetics Makeup 

I have tried a couple of products from this brand and I really liked the eyeshadow palette, so was excited to test out more from their range. The Plasma Fusion Full Pigment Lipstick in the shade Natural Kiss has such a creamy, hydrating formula and it felt so smooth and comfortable on the lips. Its a very wearable pink and the perfect everyday shade. This range of lipsticks offer, ‘the best of four worlds in one handy tube. The outer layer is filled with rich, full-pigmented pure colour lipstick that goes on smooth and even, with the staying power of a stain. While the inner core is infused with Argan Oil and Rosehip Oil to sooth and nourish lips, adding a subtle glossy finish to those rich coloured lips’

I have also been trying the Skinn Luxe Waterproof Eyeliner in Rich Black. This wasn’t too smooth to apply and I did notice it feathered out in the fine lines on my eyelid. I will say the colour is very pigmented and once it dries there is no budging, it stays in place all day. So if you want to smoke this out you have about 2 minutes before it won’t move. It didn’t irritate my eyes but you will need a good cleanser to get this waterproof liner off.

Wet Brush Detangle Professional

These brushes are a must of you struggle with knotty hair after washing, these are specifically designed to be used on wet hair. Wet brushes come in a range of sizes and styles, this one is neon green & yellow and the rubber coated handle for grip, the super thin, flexible bristles detangle tough knots with ease. The great thing about these brushes is they doesn’t tug, snap or damage your hair so you can detangle it knowing your hair isn’t getting damaged. Also because they’re so gentle they prevent split ends.

If you haven’t already browsed the beauty department on Ideal World TV make sure you pop over. You might discover some interesting new brands and great offers.

Skinn Rosette Eyeshadow Palette

Skinn Rosette Eyeshadow Palette

Skinn Rosette Eyeshadow Palette*

This has impressed me the most out of the three products I have been testing from the collection. Its a 12 pan neutral toned palette with a beautiful mix of shades, nothing too bright or out there and every single colour is one I would wear. Which in my opinion makes it great value. It has a nice mixture of matte and shimmers and all the colours are talc free so they’re not drying on the lids. I find these have minimum fall out and they last very well on me – ever longer if you use a primer. I love the copper tones and the beautiful dark brown which looks plum in some lights, all the shades are pigmented and rich in colour. It’s a great palette to travel with, as its slim, sturdy and has a large mirror too. I’m very very impressed with this palette and have been using it a lot these past few weeks.

Skinn Hollywood Nude Lip Palette

Skinn Hollywood Nude Lip Palette*

I found the consistency of these to be more like a tinted lip balm than a lipstick. The colours are all quite pretty and very wearable shades, but they only give your lips a wash of colour and have more of a gloss finish. I find lip palettes a bit of a faff if I’m honest and I would never reach for this over a lipstick. I would say give this a miss unless you like a simple understated lip look & don’t mind carrying a palette out & about so you can reapply your lip colour.

Skinn say these are Collagen Boost Lipsticks that will drench your lips with collagen-forming ingredients in a creamy, moisture-rich formula – so i guess they’re skincare infused lippies which is interesting. They do feel smoothing and comfortable on my lips, I just felt they were a little too muted and didn’t have enough colour pay off. 

Skinn Hollywood Nude Lip Palette Swatches

Skinn Ultra Luxe Mascara*

This is an ok mascara, I would say middle of the road in terms of quality. There are so many incredible budget-friendly mascaras now so there is tough competition. I found this Ultra Luxe Mascara had quite a wet formula and after a two coats it went a little clumpy. It didn’t really give volume or length to my lashes. I will say that it didn’t transfer or fall down throughout the day. I just felt my lashes didn’t look as good as usual. I think the wand would be better with a few more bristles.

Skinn Ultra Luxe Mascara

So if you get the chance to buy the eyeshadow palette I would say try it & you will get a lot of use out of it. The lip palette wasn’t my thing (but they never are) but if you do like your lipsticks in a palette format then you might be more inclined to use it. Whilst I think the mascara doesn’t hold up to many more affordable brands I have tried, I may be tempted to try one from this brand that has a different brush.

Let me know if you have tried anything from the Skinn Beauty range, I would love to hear your recommendations. I have blogged about their Skincare too if you’d like to read that.

Skinn Skincare Launching in the UK

Skinn Skincare on Ideal World TV

Skinn Skincare on Ideal World TV

I have a new UK launch for you – American brand Skinn are coming to Ideal World TV, from Thursday 3rd March you will be able to get your hands on a wide range of their products. I know a lot of people have been waiting for Skinn to be available in the UK so now it going to be much easier to get hold of. This is my first time trying anything from this brand and from what I have read their products are quite popular around the world.

I’ve been sent three of their best selling products to try from the Collagenesis range and I’m excited to try them out over the coming weeks.

Skinn Cosmetics are dedicated to bringing the best quality products to their customers and focusing more on the contents of their products not on fancy packaging, adverts and paying for space in retail stores.

‘As an industry veteran, Dimitri learned that the majority of the money at the big cosmetics houses is not spent on the product. In fact, it seems to go everywhere but the product: ad campaigns, department store counter space, Park Avenue offices, and most of all, packaging. Believe it or not, most companies spend more money on the container and fancy boxes than on the formulations inside. At Skinn, we focus on what goes into the jar and how it will make you look, not how the jar looks.’

Skinn on Ideal World

The Skinn Collagenesis range is specifically formulated to combat dry, dehydrated, thinning, crepey and wrinkled skin. Its labeled as their Anti Ageing line and is meant to help combat the early signs of aging.

Skinn Collagenesis Eye Stem Rejen Elite*

This comes with a pump which dispenses just the right amount of product for both eyes & the cream itself has quite a few great ingredients but in particular 3 active ingredients, Glacier Water, Snow Algae Powder and Alpine Rose. These will help smooth, hydrate and protect skin against environmental aggressors.

The serum is a soft pink shade, although the colour doesn’t translate into the skin. It feels very lightweight and cooling under the eye and leaves the area soft, smooth and hydrated. This does have an odd scent, I can’t put my finger on it, its not herbal or floral but I am pleased to say that the scent doesn’t linger too long and after 10 minutes or so it’s gone all together.

Skinn Collagenesis Stem Rejen Facial Serum Elite*

This also comes with a pump much like the eye serum and has the same 3 active ingredients, Glacier Water, Snow Algae Powder and Alpine Rose. The few times I have used it so far, it feels lightweight and leaves my skin soft. It feels quite a lot like the eye serum. I am looking forward to using this more and seeing how my skin looks.

Skinn Collagenesis Skincare

Skinn Collagenesis 24 Hour Youth Preservation Cream Elite*

This moisturiser has a very rich, quite thick texture but once you massage it in to your skin it feels like it melts right in. It contains Capryloyl Salicylic Acid, which assists skin turnover & will help your complexion look radiant and rejuvenated. I have only had time to test this moisturiser once and it felt nice on my skin, not greasy or heavy but I can’t say if it works or not. We will see.

I will update you in a month or so as to how I get on with this trio of products from Skinn. I just wanted to pop up a quick post to let you know they’re launching in the UK tomorrow.

Ready To Wear Makeup Review

Ready To Wear Makeup Ready to Wear Mascara and Eyeliner

I have been using two products from a brand called Ready To Wear Beauty which as of this January is being sold on Ideal World TV. Its an American makeup brand which I had never heard of before. They seem to have quite a selection of natural wearable makeup and I was kindly sent a Mascara and Eyeliner to try out.

Ready To Wear Beauty Precision Eyeliner in black*

This eyeliner has a very fine nib, as the name suggests its really good for achieving that thin & close to the lashes precision liner. I like to wear eyeliner most days but don’t always want a dramatic thick liner look so I tend to use a liner that has a precise nib. I found with this liner that the nib wasn’t quite long enough for me, I prefer a little more length so I can lay it flat along the lash line & almost print on first where I want to draw the line & that was hard to do with a short nib.

I did like how precise the nib was & that it didn’t blunt or go soft. The liner glided on & didn’t drag but I did find the product sunk into the wrinkles / creases on my eyelid (so it didn’t sit very well). If you go back over with the liner a few times it helps but if this is meant to be a ‘Ready To Wear’ eyeliner I would have liked it to apply a little better first time round.

Also I wouldn’t say this eyeliner was an intense black, if like me you like your liner to be jet black this isn’t for you. It does last all day without transferring or smudging so thats a plus. I just wasn’t won over by the liner, it has a few great things about it but it just didn’t sit very well on my eyelids & the colour wasn’t black enough for me.

Ready To Wear Beauty

Ready To Wear Mascara*

This is perfect for achieving natural fluttery eyelashes. This isn’t a mascara that will make your lashes look fake or give them length but it does coat each individual lash and gives the illusion you have thicker lashes. Its quite a wet formula and it doesn’t clump or flake throughout the day and you don’t get crispy lashes. It was also good at holding a curl which I really liked.

The wand was quite big & picked up every lash, it was easy to work right down to the bed of the lashes. I have really enjoyed using this & its been in my makeup bag for a few weeks now. So if you’re looking for a black mascara that looks quite natural & which you can wear on a daily basis this is a winner.

No eye makeup

With no eye makeup other than a touch of cream eyeshadow & in the after photos below I have the eyeliner & mascara on. I need to get better at perfecting my cat eye flicks.

With eyeliner & mascaraReady to wear eye makeup

So I loved the Ready To Wear Beauty mascara but I would say to give the eyeliner a miss unless you have youthful eyelids with no creasing or wrinkles. Let me know if you’ve heard of this brand or have tried anything from them. I would love to hear your recommendations.

I have my eye on their lipstick trio and think the colours look subtle & pretty. Right up my street.

Ready To Wear Beauty is available to purchase online from idealworld.tv
