Mascara - Max Factor - False Lash Effect Fusion

I'm extremely fickle when it comes to mascara - it's probably the only product in my lineup that I am genuinely not concerned about. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't be seen without a few lashings in place - I just have no brand that I consistently turn to, and I rarely look for any reviews when it comes to this kind of product. As a result, my normal go-to is whatever is …Read more

Mascara - shu uemura - ultimate expression

Jan/18/2013

I'm really surprised by the number of negative reviews for this product...I'm guessing that a number of people may feel a little put out by the price and therefore more likely to judge harshly, which I suppose is understandable. For me, this mascara was a pleasant surprise; I was not expecting the level of curl and volume that it imbued!


I bought this product pretty …

Blush - Liz Earle - Healthy Glow Cream Blush in Nectar 06

Nov/07/2012

have splurged like crazy on Liz Earle products as of late, and - touch wood - I have to say that I have not experienced buyer's remorse once. Normally when I go nuts buying up a new product my excitement quickly dwindles when the products don't look quite so wonderful applied in the cold light of day; my introduction to Liz Earle really could not have gone better, as I literally love …Read more

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Cream Eye Shadow in Heather

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2012

I toyed with the idea of getting one (or two...or three, as it transpired) of the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eyeshadows just recently, and convinced myself that Orchid would be the perfect shade for me - until I saw Heather on a girl with an NC25-ish oriental skintone and realised just how flattering it was. Being of half oriental/half caucasian descent with NC20-25 / fair-medium warm tones myself, I …Read more

Cleansers - Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/21/2012

I have very sensitive combination skin - it can be dry, red and itchy one moment, oily and congested the next. I suffer from both acne and eczema outbreaks periodically on my face, so I'm always cautious about the products that I use. Having read so many positive reviews on here about Kiehl's Ultra-Facial line, I thought I would give this a go. Its a thick cleanser that does not foam …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/15/2012

I have used Aveeno lotion for about 13 years now, and it will always be my staple moisturiser. I was recommended this by my doctor when I suffered a nasty outbreak of eczema on my eyelids; it is literally the only moisturiser that does not aggravate my eczema and hand dermatitis. Even supposedly neutral formulations like E45 make me unbearably itchy. I use it on its own every morning after …Read more
