Love this lipstick, I don't use this near as much as I should (simply because I'm slightly over nudes and browns) but it's beautiful nonetheless. Perfect midtown brown nude. If you're familiar with MAC lipsticks in Spirit and Verve, 1993 is basically their love child. Great quality matte lipstick that isn't drying either!

Skincare - Face - Mario Badescu - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater

Mario did a great job with this, firstly this is great value... here in the U.K. it costs around £11 for 236ml whereas getting MAC's Fix+ or Charged Water will set you back about £17 for half the size (totally side eyeing MAC right now lol). It's a fantastic refresher spray and has great nourishing ingredients free of parabens. It also does a great job as a finishing spray after …Read more

Great highlighter, but like one reviewer mentioned - on my skin tone it gives off a silvery look. The packaging is amazing and the embossed design on the highlighter looks oh so elegant but does this highlighter pack a punch? Probably not as much as TheBalm and Becca's counterpart... built up though it looks gorgeous (especially as a nose highlight!). I usually use the Morphe M501 brush to …Read more

Ah-ma-zing! I believe it's even been discontinued which truly breaks my heart. this stuff keeps me looking like a porcelain doll and makes my concealer/foundation last all day. My favourite translucent powder, and it doesn't make me look ashy either!

This is great for the price, especially if you're on a budget but I can definitely admit I prefer other drugstore foundation: Revlon Colorstay. It's lasting power is what pains me! I usually don't need to blot but within three hours I look oily with this foundation and I don't even have oily skin! So make sure you use a good primer and set it well... Besides it's …Read more

Foundations - Stila - Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer

Dec/28/2016

Great all rounder foundation, it covers, it's long wearing and it has great nourishing properties on the skin (I believe this may be why oilier gals may not be keen on its formula). I wear the shade 'Warm' on my NC47 skin, it does run a little neutral though, ima need Stila to add a little bit more yellow in that shade but apart from that it's truly a winner. I generally …Read more

I'm sorry, I'm gonna hold my hands up and say it - I totally thing this powder is overrated. After dabbling with this powder for almost a year now, I can confirm that it's nice but meh not the best. Rewind back to early 2015, I was coming to the end of using Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Banana, whilst I loved it and had no qualms using it.. I thought why not try something different …Read more

Highlighters - BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter - Champagne Pop

Apr/09/2016

This highlighter has a hefty price tag at £32 in the UK but I truly do love this, it's a gorgeous warm toned champagne that is packed with pigmentation. It's a very different texture to most of my highlighters but I must say, probably THE best quality out of all of them and I am talking The balm, Anastasia Beverly Hills and NARS to name a few. It's very flattering on warmer …Read more

Apr/09/2016

I love this highlighter, it's not the cheapest but I say it's almost as good as Becca's counterparts. It's not got chunks of glitter like MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish and if applied well and precisely can give you that candle lit glow we all love! This champagne-hued highlighter is packed with pigment so having a light hand is essential especially if you're of my …Read more

Apr/09/2016

I do like this concealer, the name serum is the selling point of this concealer, it's thinner consistency harmonises well with drier skin like myself, I have horribly dry eyes and this saved me. Whilst I love concealers like Kevyn Aucoin, NARS, LA Girl Pro HD & MAC Pro Longwear, I found out overtime one thing they have in common - they emphasised my dry under eyes and crows feet …Read more
