Snag Tights

Hello friends,

I has been a while since i have blogged but i am intending to create ore content in the coming year so hopefully that’s something for you to look forward to.

The end of 2018 saw me find my holy grail tights company and it was such a revelation that I felt that i had to share it! I have struggled with tights for years, the ‘make do’ solution i was using were the All woman 180 Denier tights from The Big Bloomers Company  but honestly that was because they were my only option. They have a thick cycling short style top and then thick and extremely long tights attached to them, they are resticting on the leg where the cycling shorts join the tights and this often meant that the shorts would show below my dress, i also had issues with saggy ankles. All, in all, I hated them.

I started seeing people posting about Snag tights on Instagram and immediately that they used a UK size 26 model in their campaign and thought i should have a look. I was immediately put off by the fact that it said they oly fitted up to size 30. My experience in tights brands in the uk is that they always come up far smaller than they say, the All woman tights i mentioned earlier for example are meant to fit a size 42 and as i explained earlier, I struggled with them. The price point of £6.99 convinced me to give them a go though and i’m SO glad that I did.

I would say that the size G can easily fit up to a size 36, I am a size 32 and have plenty of room in my tights that i could probably go down to the size F. The site says to handwash your tights, I honestly wash mine in the machine on a quick wash and then hang them to dry and have had no issues with shrinkage or damage.

Snag Tight have changed my life. I have a whole new wardrobe to shop from now as I am comfortable wearing tights and whats even better is that they have  whole array of colours which seem to be increasing regularly, this excites me so much. I have tested the tights on full disney days which involve a lot of walking and getting sweaty and they remained comfortable, in place and chub rub free for te entire time.

Even their instagram is a bright fun awesome place to hang out with customers of all shapes and sizes providing feedback and loving this awesome new brand – just look how colourful and vibrant they are!

They always have a multiple purchase offer on which is Any 3 items 10% off, 5 items 15% off, 10 items 25% off and this is applied automatically at checkout, you do not need a code. They als offer FREE shipping over £15.

Again, I cannot recommend this brand highly enough, please do try them – you won’t regret it.

With Love

Alyssa

**I have not been paid for this review, nor have i received any free items. I have purchased all of the tights (I think i currently own 14 pairs) myself and this is my honest review.

Urban Decay Electric Palette

Well, they’ve done it again.

Urban Decay bash it out of the park on a regular basis with their palettes and this is no exception.

The Electric palette is everything I wanted it to be and more. The colours are the bright, vibrant, smooth formula that you would expect from Urban Decay but with an added Jooosh that I wasn’t expecting.

I’ve swatched the colours below for you to see, the top row is with no primer, 2nd row on Urban Decay Primer Potion and the bottom row has been put over the NYX jumbo pencil in Milk. I photographed with and without flash to give you the best representation possible.

I was brought this as a gift from a very good friend yesterday and have spent all morning playing with it and creating looks on face charts.

Due to the very nature of the fact that they are pressed pigments, you can expect fallout from this palette. I combat this by using a sticky base, packing the colour rather than sweeping it and completing my eye makeup before my base to allow any fallout to be removed.

That said, the formula is incredibly soft which makes blending them very easy and the colours all compliment each other very well.

I currently have this look on my face

Created using Slowburn, Savage, Jilted and Urban. I’m also wearing 24/7 liquid liner in Perversion on my lid and 24/7 Zero in my waterline and under eye.

I love this colourful look and will be creating many more with this palette. At £38 for 10 eyeshadows and a double ended brush, I think this is a must have for any makeup lover!!

You can buy yours here! – you won’t regret it!

How are you wearing yours?
