Lipstick -Chanel -Chanel rouge allure ink

on 4/12/2018 8:16:00 AM

I absolutely love this lip colour. I have bought many luxury lipsticks in my time, and this is by far the best. So far I only have one colour - Amoureux - but I am going to buy more today. Amoureux is my perfect MLBB colour. It looks sleek and sophisticated for work, and yet natural for weekends, just smoothed in a little more. The packaging is beautiful and easy to carry around, and I love the frosted glass effect. I especially like the fact that it is small - even though it is expensive! - as I have taken to carrying it around with me. The colour does not last as long as I would like - a couple of hours, less if drinking or eating, but it fades evenly and naturally, which has been an issue with other recent expensive purchases. I am prepared to keep buying it, because of the colour, the ease of application, the lack of stickiness and the lovely packaging. Like one of the other reviewers, I see myself ditching all my other lip products and just keeping this in my bag.

Looks awful on my skin, clings to dry patches, I tried multiple different applications and just couldn't make it work for me


Cleansers -Sunday Riley -Ceramic Slip Cleanser

I used this religiously for quite a while and loved it. It evened out my skin tone and my skin was less oily, it definitely made my skin look more porcelain. I got used to the cleanser and started taking it for granted because it wasn't until I ran out and decided to try something new that I have started to see how much this cleanser benefited my skin. It is also gentle which is nice because my skin is not only oily but sensitive too.
Used alongside a Once a Week exfoliating mask it is good at combating blocked pores.
Would definitely recommend !

Brows -Charlotte Tilbury -Brow Lift

My holy grail eye brow pencil. The formula is perfect, easy to blend but not too smudgy. Lasts and lasts. The slanted tip allows precise sweeps especially for the end of brows. Yet it's still quick and easy to use. The colour (I use supermodel) is perfect for my dark hair and isn't too warm. The spooly on the end is ideal. I just love! The only downsides is the lids come off easily so I have lost the lids to both ends but that isn't much of a problem and the pencil screws in. Also there is an internal highlighter in the middle (it took me a while to discover!) which is a powder and much too dark for my skin tone (like a dark peach) It would be much better a champagne cream stick imo to highlight below brows.


Tinted Moisturizer -Dermalogica -sheer tint spf20

Love this tinted moisturiser. I have repurchased again and again. I use this on its own after cleansing. It provides the perfect amount of moisture, has a SPF, feels lovely on my skin and the slight tint helps to even skin tone. On good skin days I can wear this alone with a bit of concealer and cream blush. On bad skin days it makes the perfect base for foundation. I have the shade light which is perfect for my quite pale skin.


Cleansers -Dermalogica -Dermal Clay Facial Cleanser

My holy grail cleanser. I won't use anything else. I have oily skin. It used to be very acne prone. This is the only cleanser I have used that doesn't break me out. I use it on dry skin first and find it breaks down makeup really well. I then add water and massage it on the oily areas before rinsing off. My fave feels clean and fresh, I love the refreshing tingle of the menthol. Skin sometimes feels a little tight (but it is meant for oily skin) but no issues once I've followed with moisturiser. I havent had any issues with dryness. I have repurchased again and again ocassionaly trying other cleansers in between but I always return to this.


Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

This has made my skin feel noticeably softer and more supple. It's too rich for my face to handle, but I use it as a treatment on my hands overnight (2 drops per hand), followed by a cream to seal it in (La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume AP+). This combination has done much more for my skin than any 'fancy' hand creams I've tried in the past. Rosehip oil is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids to keep skin moisturized and protected. I've read it can also be anti-inflammatory.

There may be cheaper brands of rosehip oil available, but as this brand is so popular, I can be assured that I'm getting fresh oil with its skin-beneficial components at full strength.

SCENT: I have read that the unrefined oil can smell fishy to some, but I am very sensitive to fishy odors and it doesn't smell anything like fish IMO. To me, it smells more like underripe fruit - a pleasant green scent less sharp than grass and ever so slightly tart.

A definite repurchase for keeping my hands looking and feeling great!

Fragrances -Glossier -You

on 4/12/2018 7:01:00 AM

I had a sample of this with my glossier order and found it awful. I sprayed it on my wrists and couldn't deal with the smell that I washed it off a few hours later. To me it smells fresh and clean. But it also has a chemical smell. it's hard to describe but I have a cheap scented candle called linen that smells similar. It is almost remisinist of air fresheners, cleaning products etc. Plus points if you do like the smell it lasts extremely well, stays potent and a little gives a lot of pay off so the bottle should last you a while.

Love this brow product! I use the Charlotte Tilbury eyebrow pencil to fill in my brows (my HG) and this on top to feather the inner corners and add definition to fine hairs at the ends and what a natural and amazing combination! Already purchased a backup!
