Bloggers Beauty Brawl 2016 #beautybrawl16 – An introduction

I was kindly invited by Beth Mahoney of La Blog Beaute fame @bethmahoney92 to take part in this Beauty Blog collaboration.

What is the Blogger’s Beauty Brawl 16:

Basically, it’s a review series where a group of UK beauty bloggers will be collaborating. Over the next 10 days, we will be reviewing one product a day. Each day it will be a different type of product, such as a mascara. There may be some overlaps with products from popular brands as we won’t know what the other bloggers are reviewing until their posts go live. We will score for Packaging, Price and Product.

Who else will be joining in?

There is a mix of experienced and novice bloggers. I’ve popped a list of the participants and their blogs including, myself and Beth, below so that you can have a little peak at what we do.

What will we be reviewing?


We’re reviewing some great products; that include makeup and skincare products,  there is a list of products per day to review but each participant can choose thir own product from each category to review

Day one: A moisturiser

Day two: An eyeshadow palette

Day three: A highlighter

Day four: A mascara

Day five: A blush

Day six: A brow product

Day seven: A lipstick

Day eight: A foundation

Day nine: A hand cream

Day ten: A concealer

Are the products high-end or drugstore?

They can be either high-end or drugstore, it doesn’t matter. This doesn’t affect the fairness of the collaboration, as while some drugstore products are of a lower quality than high-end ones, so would be marked lower under ‘the product itself’, they’d get a higher mark for ‘price’ as they are much more budget-friendly. Whereas high-end products might get a high score for quality but a low one for price. I hope that makes sense.The products I’m using are a combination of drugstore and high-end items, and I would imagine it would be the same for the other bloggers too. The idea is that the items we’re using are all products that we haven’t used before, to make it more fair.

I’m pleased with most of my products. They may not make it into my everyday collection but some of them will do. This is what I love about the Blogger’s Beauty Brawl collaborations, they give me a chance to try out products that otherwise I would never buy. I have always been slightly addicted to cosmetics as my mother was. She was from an time where the Max Factor panstick and full coverage make-up from a golden Hollywood Era was the ultimate in glamour.

Where can I keep up with all the posts from the Beauty Brawl?
This time around our Twitter and Instagram hashtag is #beautybrawl16. So if you want to keep up to date with all the posts and photos on social media, you’ll be able to find them under the hashtag.
