It's not dry touch, it's actually quite tacky on the skin and it leaves a white cast on my skin. Smells very strongly of spf too, but I wouldn't mind that so much if it wasn't so icky feeling and grey on my skin.

I had SUCH high hopes for this!!!! After practically being told it was indestructible, and could endure heat, oil and sweat like no other, I was sooo hyped up to buy this for the summer as I can never really use eyeliner in the summer as it smudges off thanks to my oily lids.
Literally within the first hour of applying it, it had already started to break up and smudge just like all the other …

THIS IS SUCH A GORGEOUS PALETTE.

First of all, the packaging is a work of art; a gorgeous gilded palette with a lovely floral cover and a good sized mirror. The shadows themselves - 9 mattes and 3 shimmers- are beautifully pigmented, blendable and smell divine too. I love the range of neutral/warm shades ranging from light to dark with hints of peach, bronze, aubergine and chestnut …

This is a great highlighter for light-medium skintones. I love the fact that it isn't glittery and has a lovely champagne sheen when applied to the face. I'd recommend using a setting spray over it to make it really pop, or to damp your brush before applying it with a setting spray as it really enhances the glow. It suits my NC30 skin really well and I have no qualms with it at all- it …Read more

Like the rest of the Fenty line, this gloss too caters to a wide range of skin tones and would look lovely on practically everyone. It's a universal warm rosy nude which compliments your natural lip colour and comes in gorgeous packaging. I really love how it applies; a large doe-foot applicator that saves having to double dip, I love the fruity smell- not overpowering or sickly at all. I …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Clear Brow Gel

Whilst I was hunting for a good clear brow gel, all my searches ended up winding down to ABH. Since the company is known for its amazing brow products (I haven't tried any of them FYI), and after seeing so many positive reviews, I decided to spend a little bit extra for a product that claimed to tame brows really well.
I bought it for £16 (0.28 oz - about 8ml)- which for a mere, clear …

I bought this recently and after trying it for the first time, fell completely in loooove! It a subtle glowy powder with a slight sheen that doesn't look shimmery or overpowering on the skin, it's actually almost undetectable but it gives the skin a very gorgeous suffused look. I'm a MAC NC30 and I use the shade Medium Golden because I reckoned the Light shades would be a tad too …Read more

Concealers - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

Apr/03/2017

This concealer is perfect for the undereyes, highlighting and any pin point concealing you may need. It's light, full coverage and easily blendable without being cakey at all. Despite its fairly thin consistency, it covers very well and manages to look natural, hence the 'naked skin' moniker.
Unfortunately I was given the wrong shade at the counter, I'm between NC25-30 …

Lips - NYX Professional Makeup - Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

Feb/28/2017

I possess several shades of these lipcreams and I love them. A great product for a very affordable price. I love the nude shades (Abu Dhabi, London, Athens, Cannes) and the darker shades Berlin and Copenhagen. They go on very creamy and light and don't dry out my lips. My only qualm is with one shade Transylvania which is the darkest shade (a super dark plum) which can go on a bit patchy but …Read more

Feb/28/2017

I was dissuaded from initially buying this firstly because of the HYPE (I try to steer clear of overhyped products) and secondly because several friends had told me it was too dry for an under-eye concealer.
As someone with oily skin, I can safely say that it is a wonderful concealer, it blends in beautifully under my eyes and can be used for spot concealing, highlighting etc. I use the …
