Mascara - Maybelline New York - Full 'N Soft Mascara

This is my current go to mascara. I’ve repurchased a few times. It isn’t clumpy or wet. It gives length and volume and is very black. My biggest gripe is lashes sticking together, I hate clumpy lashes and need length. I find this to be great, and it stays fresh for quite a long time before drying out and changing consistency. It’s not dry either and doesn’t flake off, nor does it smudge on my …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Gel Intenza Eyeliner - Pure Black

This is great. I use it for lining my upper waterline and top lash line. It doesn’t smudge, lasts all day and is truely waterproof. I bought it when looking for something to line the inner corners of my eyes that wouldn’t smudge or wear off. This does that. It’s very black and is easy to work with. It also isn’t difficult to wash off. Great product.

I’ve bought the tube version of this multiple times. It’s a great product. I can use it as foundation, sun protection and moisturiser in one. I have very dry skin, so I prefer to have a little bit of moisturiser underneath, then put this on and powder it. I’ve found it’s great for dry skin - doesn’t cling to dry patches or emphasise texture at all. While moisturising, it does follow the trend of …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup SPF 20 Normal/Dry Skin

I see why people compare this to Mac Studio Fix Fluid. It’s similar in terms of coverage and shades, except this is definitely more matte. Despite saying this is for normal/dry skin, this is the most matte foundation I currently have (beaten only by MUFE). If you have dry skin you definitely won’t need to powder this, even down the T zone, though blush still seems to blend over it. I have very …Read more

Brows - Unlisted Brand - Refectocil permanent eyebrow tint

5.0

I bought this in a kit complete with the colour tint, developer and tools. As others have said, throw away the applicator, it’s useless. I bought this for my eyebrows and eyelashes in the colour ‘light brown’, I believe... I have naturally blonde transparent eyelashes and my brows are a transparent mouse. The colour suits me well - it isn’t too red or grey, which is what I was looking for. It is …Read more

I bought this after getting a sample from Mecca. I wasn’t interested in buying a foundation at all before the sample, but simply had to after I tried it. This is a beautiful foundation. The sample I got was the fourth shade and it gave such a brightening healthy glow. I was matched to the second shade (10) in store which is my correct shade and I believe it to be less yellow than the sample. The …Read more

Liquid - Nude by Nature - Flawless Liquid Velvet Liquid Mineral Foundation

Jan/12/2018

Definitely one of the worst. Has about the same coverage as a tinted primer, doesn't build at all, is lumpy and unblendable. I'm actually convinced this is meant to be used as a primer to the powder mineral foundation, except you could definitely get better primers than this as this is oddly textured.

As others have said; you cannot, with any method, build this foundation …

I got my first bottle of this for Christmas and I love it. My Mum is heavily into this brand and started buying in search of products which wouldn't irritate her skin. She gets eczema on her eyelids and unfortunately most products, including makeup, now illicit quite a painful reaction. After she's been eagerly showing me all the products she has and praising the company, their products …Read more

Masks - Deciem - The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

Jan/10/2018

This is the best acid peel I've come across so far. My skin is very uneven and I have quite prominent acne scaring. I've tried salycilic and glycolic acid in the past in varying concentrations, and while I think my skin has gone as far as it can with peels, I feel this did the most for me. To be honest I haven't used it consistently enough to have any marked improvement but given …Read more

Concealers - BECCA - Concealer compact

Very dry. That needs to be said first. I find putting setting powder down first and using it last seems to help, but it's definitely not a creamy concealer.

I use it under my eyes (I know it's not meant for that), but it cakes no matter where I put it. It's important to use a thin layer, which is I'm guessing why it comes in 2 formulations of coverage - medium and …
