Hair Treatments - Davines - Dede hair mist

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/23/2018

I got this Dede Hair Mist from my hair stylist, more as a product to try rather than because it's supposed to work miracles. I never use conditioner for my hair, so this "spray on conditioner" which can be applied to damp hair and left in to dry is a really convenient format.

I can't say I've noticed any dramatic results, but I have straight hair and …

Eye Shadow - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Eye shadows

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2018

I am a newcomer to the world of MUA eyeshadows and had only stumbled on it because I was looking for a dupe for a particular colour which I saw in a palette from another brand, but the texture of these beauties are simply droolworthy!

I have been wearing the ME 302 (Peacock) and the I 328 (Bronze - which is a close dupe for Bobbi Brown's Forest eyeshadow). Despite the metallic …

Stick - Bobbi Brown - Skin Foundation Stick

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2018

I have this foundation stick in Honey, but I only bought it as Bobbi Brown have discontinued the touch-up concealer stick in the same colour which I've used for years. I'm not sure the SA was correct in telling me that this is an identical product as the touch-up stick but I couldn't see a viable alternative if I wanted to continue using the same colour!

The foundation …

Blush - Sleek MakeUP - MakeUP Blush - Pomegranate

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2018

This is my second Sleek blush as I was absolutely bowled over by the Rose Gold (which dented after a week's use). I had uummed and aahhed before purchasing as the colour looked so dark in the pan, but decided to take a punt anyway after checking out a few swatches online.

As many reviewers and bloggers have said, Sleek blushes can be incredibly pigmented and Pomegranate is no …

Mascara - Eyeko - Black Magic Mascara (Curved Brush)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2018

I received a generous sample size of this mascara in a beauty advent calendar and had been curious on finding an alternative to my HG Chanel Le Volume mascara (which I know is probably an unfair starting point for a comparison). Having said that, I did have hopes that a brand which focuses on eyelashes and promises "drama and curl" might be a serious contender.

This is the …

Blush - Sleek MakeUP - MakeUP Blush - Rose Gold

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2017

I think my views of the Sleek Rose Gold blush has a lot to do with the price tag, as there's nothing to complain about £4.99. The packaging is practical and highly portable for my travels (it's not that much bigger than a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow/ blusher).

This is my first drugstore blusher and I won't compare the colour to anything else that I have, but I bought it as I …

Bronzers - GUERLAIN - Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/21/2016

I have the moyen-brunettes (05) and I think it might actually be my first bronzer. I can't claim to have much knowledge of bronzers as my skin is usually tanned due to where I live, but I bought the 4 Seasons bronzing powder as I was justifying a purchase of something pretty and am trying to stick to a resolution not to buy any more blushes/ blush palettes or pretty highlighting …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - RIMMEL - Fix and Protect 005

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2016

I am a stubborn cheapskate when it comes to eye primers as I have used the Boots No.7 Beautifully Matte foundation primer for over a decade as an eye primer, and was on the lookout for a replacement since it had been discontinued. In my books (and I am not pretending this is the right way to go about choosing this sort of product), all I want in an eye primer is something to get my eye shadow to …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2016

I think the moisturising gels are the epitome of what Clinique does best: reliable quality skincare at a reasonable price point.

I had chosen the combination to oily skin version as that best describes how my skin responds to the Dubai climate, but I don't really expect any skincare product would really change the weather for me.

The "gel" label is a bit of …

Makeup Brushes - shu uemura - #10 Handy Sable Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2016

The Shu Uemura sable/kolinsky brushes seem to have iconic status in the blogosphere space so I was very curious to find out what the rave reviews are about after dipping into Hakuhodo brushes. The price tag is steep, no two ways about it, so it did take a bit of lemming before I prised open my wallet for this purchase.

I use dark eyeshadow colours for a heavily smoky eye, so pigmented …
