Lip Treatments - NUXE - Reve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm with Honey

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2018

I’m so disappointed in this product- I feel like part of my disappointment might be because I was expecting so much more, but it still is just such a ‘standard’ product, or worse.

The packaging is nice if you don’t mind pots (sturdy, heavy, frosted glass), and it has a somewhat potent orange scent. Texture-wise, it’s a very thick, heavy product.

In terms of what it actually …

Palettes - Urban Decay - Naked Ultimate Basics

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/01/2016

This is by no means a 'bad' product, but it certainly isn't worth the £38. I bought it pretty much when it came out, and I'm very underwhelmed.

The shade range in general is good, though the palette doesn't feature any dark browns. However, the shadows really aren't all that pigmented; I found a few of them to be quite dusty too, especially the lighter …

Concealers - Pixi - Correction Concentrate - Brightening Peach

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2016

(For reference; I'm an NC15 with dry skin and large pores/texture)

I can't recommend this product enough!

It comes in a small pot (which has so far lasted me around 8 months and I'm not even halfway through), and has a bit of a solid and sticky feel, but works like a dream on my under-eye circles.

I hate using my fingers with makeup, but I think …

Mascara - Urban Decay - Perversion Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2016

This mascara is, all in all, reasonably average in my opinion. It has its great points, but also some quite bad points. It doesn't give an extreme curl/thickness/length in my experience, but subtly does all of those things. The brush is a bristle brush, and reasonably large.

Pros:
•I found it has great staying power, and maintains the look throughout the day- I had no issues …

Palettes - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Palette

Nov/29/2016

(For reference, I'm an NC15 skin tone)

After people raved about this palette, I was so excited to get it, but 6 months later, I'm still not impressed with it. There are three shades in the palette, which I'll review individually;

Dim light- this powder is fine and doesn't cake at all, but I have to be VERY light handed with it or it seems to remove my …

Treatments (Face) - Zelens - PHA+ Bio-peel Resurfacing Facial Pads

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/10/2016

I've tried my fair share of acids, and these are definitely my favourite!

These pads definitely helped my skin to resurface and improve texture a lot, as well as seeming to reduce the hyperpigmentation left from old blemishes.

I have quite reactive skin, and whilst I could feel a slight tingling upon application, it went away far quicker than with all other acids …

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2016

This would be a completely acceptable product if it was around the £10 mark, but for £54, this product is outrageously pathetic!

It's difficult to describe what this product does, because it really doesn't seem to provide any results at all. I used Eau Roma Water from Lush prior to this, which does a far better job at hydrating and soothing my skin, at a sixth of the price …

Toners - Pixi - Glow Tonic

5.0

May/12/2016

Please keep in mind that I've dabbled with acid (the skincare variety) only briefly, but I really love this! My skin is dry/ dehydrated/ acne prone.

I was really concerned about adding this to my routine in case it was too drying/stripping/irritating etc, but it really isn't. At first I found it slightly tingly (not intolerably, very minimal), and it didn't seem to do an …

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2016

If this mascara was better than sex, then the human race would have died out years ago.

The brush is very large and has bristles, and is symmetrical; thick at the start and tip, and thinner in the middle.

This mascara creates quite a clumpy effect- if you don't like that, don't consider this mascara. I personally do, but this mascara is incredibly clumpy. Whilst it …

Masks - LUSH - Mask of Magnaminty Face and Body Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2016

I really like this mask!

Price wise, it's £10 for a large tub, which I'd say I can get around 6 or 7 thick masks out of.

The consistency is quite thick, with small particles in it (these have a slight habit of falling off). It smells exactly like mint choc chip ice cream!

For reference, I use the self-preserving version of his mask, and my skin is …
