Blush - Glossier - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

I bought this thinking it would be like my Daniel Sandler watercolour blush in Gentle, which is the perfect cheek perfecting colour for me. It completely blends and blurs out my rosacea and I love it.

This is a touch lighter in colour (Dusk) and accentuates my rosacea. I like the formula and the packaging as there’s no chance in using to much, and the amount you use definitely means …

Sunscreen - NIVEA - SUN UV Face Shine Control Cream SPF 50

I struggle with sunscreen for my face as every single one I have tried breaks me out and feels greasy under make up. I have rosacea and it's really important for me to use it, above and beyond the normal reasons. It's also important to me that sunscreen is readily available and also not too expensive.

This was about £8 for a tube, it's a light cream that melts into my skin …

Bought this is the colour 310 Forever Heather. It's the perfect colour for me to be honest, darkish nudey pinky browny with a tiny bit of shimmer. Love it.

The staying power is phenomenal. I wore it to a wedding at the weekend, from 10am to midnight it did not budge. I did reapply the gloss a couple of times but not the colour.

I dislike the initial stickiness and I …

Polishes - RIMMEL - Super Gel

The only things I liked about this were a) the colour - very good black; and b) the brush is pretty good.

However - it's £5.99 and I bought the topcoat as well so not so cheap for a first outing. The black went on fine, but I was expecting the topcoat to dry it quickly and well. It did not. It took ages. For the first time in a long time I had not only smudges but wrinkles. I had …

Lipstick - Stila - Color Balm Lipsticks (All Shades)

I have this is the colour Vivienne, which is a warm nude.

I use it tapped onto my lips as applying normally makes the colour too strong. It’s a shade too warm to be a true nude for me, but I still really like it.

The packaging is lovely, and the lipstick itself is nice. Slick and easily applied, with a nice sheen. I don’t find it especially sheer, so it feels more like a …

Treatments (Eye) - Avene - Soothing Eye Contour Cream

I don’t dislike this but I don’t love it. It moisturises, but no better than any basic cream I have. It doesn’t irritate which is key as I tend to get eczema on my eyelids - but I don’t get irritation from creams.

I like the packaging a lot, easy to use and you can get to all the product. However, I probably won’t buy again as it’s not amazing and it is pretty pricey.

Liquid - Collection Cosmetics - Lasting Perfection Weightless Foundation

Absolutely love this little gem of a foundation. I'm annoyed I've spent so much on high end foundations when this was available for a fiver!

I love the packaging. I'm a big fan of squeezy tubes - glass bottles look fancy but it annoys me when you spend £30+ on a foundation and the last bit is wasted. I apply using my fingers which might be old school but it works best …

Highlighters - Daniel Sandler - Watercolour Liquid Illuminator Rose Glow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I think this is one of my new favourites.

I bought Gentle which is a blush colour, and this as a highlighter. I've really struggled finding a highlighter than looks like the gloss of natural skin and no glitter. Even ones that look lovely at the beginning of the day tend to wear off to look glittery by the end of the day.

I don't have to worry anymore because I …

Blush - Daniel Sandler - Watercolour Liquid Blush Gentle

5.0

10 months ago

I bought a sample of this blush in several colours and dithered for ages on which one to buy the full size. I decided on Gentle and I'm SO glad I did!

First, this blush is unlike anything I have used before. It is truly a liquid, closer to Benetint than Posietint by Benefit as it's not a gel. But it doesn't stain. You get 30ml for £16.50 which is cheaper than a lot of …

I like this but don’t love it and wouldn’t rebuy.

The good: it covers my redness nicely and the colour match is great. It smells good, a bit orangey, blends well, and I like the bottle although a squeeze tube would be better.

The bad: for me, this doesn’t really wear that well. By the end of a normal work day in an office, it’s separated and not looking too healthy despite my …
