I got the travel size of this as a Christmas gift and I love it. I’ve been trying to find a finishing powder that doesn’t completely dull my skin, I’m 37 now and while I need powder to set my foundation, normal powder just makes me look dusty and old.

This is really gorgeous, and surprisingly, it looks gorgeous in photos - flawless and airbrushed (which is something with my skin!) …

I bought a small piece of this to try out after reading some favourable reviews.

My hair is super dry curly, mid length. I normally use a moisturising ‘lotion’ before gel, and still end up with fluff and frizz.

I’m always after that elusive one and done product and i think this might be it. I used this on freshly washed wet hair, broke off a small piece and rubbed between my …

Moisturizers - MAC Cosmetics - Strobe Cream

I actually got this as a free sample when buying online, and have been really pleasantly surprised.

It comes out of the tube as a white cream, but when tapped on the cheekbones just blends out beautifully to a glossy looking shine.

Obviously if you don’t like that look this isn’t for you, but I prefer a no powder, more ‘moist’ look for my make up as I age. This works really …

I bought a sample size of this.

I like it, but I don’t like it enough to buy the full size, I’d rather have the Nuxe de Miel lipbalm as my ‘fancy’ lipbalm.

I like these. I hate applying body cream, such a faff and I always forget. I was told this was an in shower lotion so that’s how I use it, and I love it.

Once I’ve shut off the water, I apply this all over (particularly on my arms and chest where I get really dry skin) give it a minute to sink in then dry myself as normal. I have the almond one, it smells lovely but not as intense as …

Liquid - RIMMEL - MATCH PERFECTION Light Perfecting Radiance Foundation

5.0

This product is a massively surprising win for me! I bought it when I went on holiday and forgot to pack foundation (do not even ASK how that happened) and my choices were this, Maybelline or another Rimmel one, the one with the orange lid which I have and do not like. I decided on this one purely because I know that the colour 100 Porcelain is perfect for me and I couldn't remember my …Read more

EDIT: I'm increasing my score as I tried again with a different foundation and actually love it now. My previous review was over Mac F&B; over a slightly heavier foundation it's much better. I enjoy the colour and agree with other reviewers it's hard to go overboard (at least with Dusk). It's fine applying with fingers but I prefer to use a stippling …Read more

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

Jan/01/2019

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 …
