Mascara - Max Factor - False Lash Effect Waterproof

Dec/15/2014

I'm not a fan of waterproof mascaras and normally I avoid them at all costs. Waterproof formulas are tricky and hard as hell to remove. But after my beloved cat was run over the other day and after I took him to the vets and soothed him whilst he went to Catty Heaven, I cried all my mascara all over my face. I was a mess. A black, runny, creepy-looking mess. And I still had to go to work the …Read more

Lip Gloss - Unlisted Brand - MeNow Generation Long Lasting Lip Gloss

Oct/02/2014

I have Number 28 (Red) and Number 26 (a muted pink which dries as a bright-almost-Barbie pink) and I love how long lasting these lip glosses are. They are hard wearing, long lasting and highly pigmented lip glosses. Both of mine dry down matte and cost hardly anything at all - around one dollar, thirty cents (USA dollars - I live in the UK so they're around 95 pence), so they're well …Read more

I have this long-wearing lip colour in the shade 03 Hot Pepper, which is a neutral red (not blue, nor orangey). Red is a lip colour that simply won't go out of fashion, and there's good reason for this; it looks good on everyone. It's classic and timeless.
This lip colour goes on smoothly and dries to a matte finish. It claims to last for up to 24hrs, have a light texture and …

I am a complete mascara addict. It's sick... But I just can't help myself! My eyelashes are relatively straight with only a hint of a curl right at the ends, so my lashes need to be curled tightly and mascara'd lightly to maintain the curl, and this mascara really does the trick for me. This mascara seems to be a Marmite product; you either love it or hate it, and I definitely love …Read more

Liquid - Dior - Diorskin Forever Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Makeup (2011 Formulation) ] [DISCONTINUED]

Sep/07/2013

This is a wonderful foundation, a little on the pricey side but it blends beautifully and sets in a powder-like finish (I use a Real Techniques stippling brush). It has SPF 25 so it's a great foundation for protecting your skin from the sun. I checked the foundation with the flash on my iPhone, and the high SPF does cause flashback, so this is probably not a foundation you'll want to …Read more

Aug/25/2013

I bought the shade/colour 220, which is a pretty good match for my skin.

I must say here right now that I use Milk of Magnesia, then a primer before foundation application and then an Origins face powder/foundation to set it afterwards on ALL foundations, otherwise they just don't last on my face.

The stick glides over the skin and kind of feels a little oily, and …

I have this in the shade Nude, which is a great match for my fakely-tanned-skin. This foundation is a medium coverage I would say, gives a beautiful, smooth finish (I buff it into my skin using a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush), and makes my skin look radiant and my pores look almost non-existent. This foundation doesn't break me out, it's PARABEN FREE (hooray!) and feels light and …Read more

Brows - benefit Cosmetics - Brow-Zing in Medium

Apr/20/2012

I have black, unruly eyebrows that never seem to want to stay in place. Because most makeup companies have stopped selling clear mascara or are sold out of their brow gel I have actually turned to using hair spray on the tip of my finger and trying to smooth it over my brows to tame those unruly hairs!

But not anymore... Today I bit the bullet and forked out £22.50 for Brow Zings in …

Up until recently, my holy grail foundation has been Revlon Colorstay - that was until I found out that it contains methylparaben (and I'm not even going to go into that in detail), so off I went, looking for something even better...

And boy, did I find it! I bought the colour 1C1 Shell (it costs £26.50, which isn't cheap by the way), which is a great match for my pale skin …

This is a review on 06 (think it's called Royal Plum)

The only lipstain I have ever used is Benetint, and unfortunately I'm running out, so I decided to go for something a little different. Royal Plum 06 I think is a very deceiving name; plum suggests that the colour should be... well... plummy - y'know, sort of purple-ish. But it's not. It comes out on my lips a …
