Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

This is the first product I have tried from Clinque.

Price wise very expensive however you do get a lot of product in the bigger version and a little product goes a long way.

The actual product is obviously very oily. It did get off any stubborn mascara.

I would only buy the travel version again if I was going travelling because it would last me more than 2 weeks …

Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional Face Primer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

This is the first face product I have tried from Benefit.

The price is around £20-27 here in the UK. I consider this expensive for a primer.

Packaging is cute.

Product feels very siliconey. I have large pores on my cheeks so I asked for this for my birthday and I dislike the product. It does nothing for my pores. The product leaves bits on my face and doesn’t work …

Blush - Milk Makeup - Lip + Cheek

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

This is my first product from the brand Milk Makeup.

Price here in the UK is £25 which I would consider expensive for a blush / lipstick.

The packaging is a thick tube which you roll up. Very simple packaging which is pleasing to look at.

The product is cream which I personally prefer because it gives a natural within colour. I have the shade “ Werk” which is a rosey …

Packaging: Thin tube easy to store.

Price: I rated as a 3 because i got mine for free so unsure of the pricing & we don’t have Tarte in the UK.

Product: I had the shade “ Birthday Suit” which is a mauve pink shade. When first applied the formula felt really creamy. However when dried down it was a matte finish and did feel a bit drying on my lips however i do get dry / …

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2018

Packaging: Is a lot smaller than i expected which is a bonus for storage & travelling. But then does mean the pan sizes are very small! Comes with a cardboard sleeve which i think is just a waste of paper.

Price: Is one of the cheaper colourful eyeshadow palettes.

Product: The shadows do swatch really chalky & not that pigmented but when they are on the eyes it is a …

Brows - benefit Cosmetics - Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2018

Packaging: Useful as one of the ends is a spoolie which helps brush the brows & blends the product. Also there’s options to buy the travel size too which is handy if you want to try it before purchasing the larger size or if you travel often. However i found the travel size version to last not even 2 weeks. So far the larger size has lasted over a month & still plenty of product left ( i …Read more

Bronzers - Too Faced - Chocolate Gold Soleil Bronzer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/29/2018

Packaging is 8/10. Looks very expensive with a little vintage twist with the copper coloured packaging. However lost 2 points as the product easily breaks inside so obviously the packaging isn’t protecting the product. The smell ( to me) doesn’t smell like chocolate at all but i don’t mind it as its not too overpowering. This one has small flecks of gold and its not that noticeable on the skin …Read more

Liquid - Too Faced - Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/29/2018

Packaging is 10/10. Love the peachy theme & how there’s a pump makes it easy to control how much product you get. Shade range is poor for deeper skintones so you might want to look at the Born This Way Foundations instead. The smell isn’t too overpowering for me doesn’t smell like peach more like the fig instead. This is described as a matte foundation i would say more of a velvet finish as i …Read more
