Treatments (Eye) - Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2017

This eye cream feels luxurious and is highly moisturising. I struggle with dry, sore skin around the eyes in winter and this has been a godsend. I initially thought it to be expensive but with a little working into the skin with your fingers the formula spreads a lot further than you'd expect having seen the thick consistency in the pot. A little does go a long way and a small pot lasted me …Read more

Masks - Kiehl's - Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2017

I love the effect that this mask has on my skin. After the first use it looked rejuvenated and plump and felt well moisturised. Unlike the other reviews, I liked the scent but can appreciate that it's unusual and won't be to everyone's taste. The formula, however, takes some getting used to. There's something a little unpleasant about the way the product comes off in clumps …Read more

Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Frog Prince

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2017

The colour change concept and packaging didn't really appeal to me. It is definitely clever, well executed and eye catching but I bought Frog Prince instead on the strength of reviews when looking for a daytime mid-pink that looks fairly natural. I absolutely love the shade, against my fair skin it transforms to a deep rose pink that is pretty but not too bold - perfect for an everyday lip …Read more

Pressed Powders - NARS Cosmetics - Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2017

I've found my HG setting powder. This is so finely milled that it is incredibly lightweight on the skin and gives a flawless, poreless finish. I find it gives a subtle glow and haven't had any issues with camera flash like some reviews have mentioned, perhaps this is down to application. I used a small kabuki brush and applied lightly. One slight downside is the size of the holes in the …Read more

Self Tanners - Garnier - Summer Body Moisturizing Lotion Sun Kissed Look

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2016

My HG tan. Easy to apply, nicely fragranced (no horrible biscuit smell!) and a lovely deep colour that looks natural after the first application. As with any tanning product it's best to apply a small amount of moisturiser to any dry patches and wrists, elbows, ankles etc to avoid streaks. Works well with Palmers Cocoa Butter. Perfect tan everytime and I receive so many compliments from …Read more

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2016

I have mixed feelings about Hoola. I tried it years ago and recently gave it a second chance after receiving it as a gift. When applied lightly with a good quality brush, it gives my fair skin an even, healthy looking bronze and the appearance of a natural tan. It's matte formula allows you to highlight without looking overdone. Sadly the packing is just awful, the small box makes it almost …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Miracle Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2016

Miracle Gel works incredibly well for me- I find it easy to apply, quick to dry and long lasting. I can happily wear MG for a week before reapplying. Regular polish usually gives me two to three days of wear before noticeably chipping. I'm so impressed that I've given up buying regular polish and will be staying with MG in future. As with any polish you should prepare the nail properly …Read more

Loose Powders - Bourjois - Java Rice Smoothing & Setting Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2016

The perfect setting powder for me- and I've tried many! When applied lightly (I use a small kabuki brush) it mattifies and sets makeup well but leaves a subtle, natural looking glow. It gives a soft focus effect. It could double up as a highlighter if applied more liberally but I use it daily for setting and pair with a more noticeable highlighter (Nars Albatross). The scent may not be to …Read more

Treatments (Face) - La Roche-Posay - CICAPLAST BAUME B5 - Multi-Purpose/Soothing Repairing Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2016

Miracle cream! I bought B5 to repair and sooth my skin which is prone to dryness and had suffered in winter weather. I've been using it twice daily for a month now and not only has it resolved the dry patches but also evened my skin tone, completely vanished some red marks from spots and even improved the appearance of an old scar- none of which I expected. Although it is quite heavy it …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2014

Natural looking foundation which gives a gorgeous glow. Face and Body gives sheer coverage but is also surprisingly buildable to a medium finish. The formula took a little time to get used to as the liquid is thin, although I have found that working the foundation in my hands before application thickens it a little and saves too much buffing when on the skin. I find F&B to be good value when …Read more
