Cheerz Box Review

In a society that has become predominantly technology based, it is difficult to find a hard copy of memories when everything seems be digitalised. Thanks to our phones we are able to take snaps, whenever and wherever we want and upload them to social media to interact with others. As much as this is incredible, it does take away the quality of holding a 4x4 photo, to display and share with whoever you may desire. The company Cheerz have a website and app that specialise in digital prints of your photos in a variety of different forms that aesthetically adopt the appearance of polaroids. There bold and bright website allows you to upload your photos, select your preferred printing style and sends them to your home, all for affordable prices. I was allowed to pick out my own selection of snaps that I am eager to share with you as I am blown away by the quality of their advertised products. 

The first product I selected was their famous Cheerz Box, a brilliant concept that is totally unique. The Cheerz Box supplies a pretty little decorated box filled with 30-45 of your favourite polaroid photos which ultimately can be either be presented in your bedroom or gifted to a friend including all of their favourites photo of a holiday, wedding, birthday etc. The quality of the photos completely surpassed all of my expectations with the glossy photo paper and extra fine detail. I have loved flipping through these snaps off all of my favourite memories of 2015 and cannot wait to get my hands on more of these boxes to keep and treasure. Priced at £13, the Cheerz Box is totally worth it and if you read until the end, I have a discount code that will save you money on all of your order. 

Next up, is the these cute and retro polaroid strips that include a selection of your favourite photos presented together. I absolutely loved playing around with the composition of these strips and cannot wait to present these in my bedroom. Once again the quality of the photos were faultless and my pictures really do not do the vividness of colour and attention to detail, any justice. These also came encased in a bright and retro sleeve that provided protection to the polaroids which I felt to be a nice touch from the Cheerz company. Priced at £6.50, these strips are incredibly affordable!

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in Vintage Vamp

I understand that my blog is often a little high-end heavy but I am sucker when it comes to beautiful packaging. I have previously blogged about another palette from Charlotte Tilbury and expressed how I had fallen in love with the quality of colours encased in the burgundy and gold packaging and clearly that crave for perfection did not stop there. I picked up this palette initially because I am all about those purple shades to compliment and contrast my green eyes and admittedly the richness of the purple did not show up fully on camera. I love the whole systematic feel  of the Charlotte Tilbury quads as every shade has a purpose: to prime, enhance, smoke and pop! As well as the fact that it caters for all smokey-eye cravers wether you are experienced with working with shadows or not. I also love these quads as all though they are predominantly built for smokey-eye looks, I would pretty much wear any of these shades alone for a low-key eye with a little bit of liner smudged below the lashes and a glossy, nude lip. I feel like the definition of 'buttery' shadows was invented for the purpose of describing Tilbury's shadows and trust me, they are pricey but seriously, they are so worth it! The only slight downside is the glitter included, AKA - the Pop shade, isn't as pigmented as the other shades and definitely benefits from finger application (just a little heads up).  Yet, the fall out from all the shadows is practically obsolete, a massive pro in my opinion and arguably gives Urban Decay a run for their money.

Let me know in the comments if you have tried and tested any of the Charlotte Tilbury quads!
