Jul/12/2013

I really like this balm. I bought it as a replacement for Emma Hardie's Moringa Cleanse & Sculpt which I didn't rebuy because I hate the crappy packaging of EH which disintegrates before the pot is halfway empty, for £35 that is outrageous.

The Clinique balm is significantly less costly at £22 ish for 125g (EH contains 100g for £35 ish). TTDO does a much better job of …

Cleansers - REN Clean Skincare - ClearCalm Anti-Blemish Clay Cleanser

Unfortunately for me, this gave me odd bumpy, pin prick spots under the skin so I can't/won't keep using it on my normal/oily, sensitive, spot prone skin. I think it's just a bit too harsh, unfortunately (and I obv won't buy again!).

I do like the ethos of REN and the hygienic sealed packaging though, it's just this product that I can't get on with …

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift & Sculpting Morning Cleansing Balm

Lovely balm, very nice texture and easy to use. Didn't make a world of difference to my skin but didn't do it any harm either.

Fairly effective cleanser. I don't wear much make up day to day (just mascara and blusher) and this does remove it (and heavier 'full face' make up) but I do find I'm left with a small amount of mascara residue.

My …

Lovely.

My skin is oily and I didn't realise it was dehydrated until I tried this and saw the difference in my skin. My skin is more glowy, plump and the small lines which I thought were inevitable irreversible age lines have all but disappeared.

The tube packaging is hygienic and I like the no nonsense graphic design.

The price at £24.99 for 30ml strikes …

I really wanted to like this but I'm not sure why I bought it in the first place as I really don't get on with Maybelline mascaras. That said, I like fibre mascaras and was on the lookout for a cheapish, 'drugstore' option. I have the waterproof version.

Firstly, the packaging. It's ok. Functional but very plasticky and quite cheap looking.

The look? …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre in Lady Bug

Moisturising formula, great orangey red colour. As it's a lustre it goes on quite sheer, so it is very wearable as a muted 'day' red or you can blot and build layers for a more dense colour. It is a very versatile shade and an ideal red for anyone who is a bit scared of reds and wants to ease in a bit first.


Wear time ? Not great, because of the super light lustre …

This is a great brush.


I use it to apply tinted moisturiser (Laura Mercier Oil Free), as I'm not a foundation wearer. First I buffed it into my skin and then I stippled in on any areas that warranted a little more coverage. The finish was wonderful. Much better than when blended with fingers and a million times better than application by the traditional flat syle of …

Gorgeous, bold, hot coral colour. I adore this on my toes. Opaque in 2 generous coats and not streaky. No chips. Wear time is AMAZING. I've had it on 10 days so far and I'm only removing it today to give my nails a breather, they are totally immaculate.


If I could give halves, this one would be a 4.5 / 5. Not a 5/5 because I reserve that for HG stuff and nail polish …

Apparently every fair skinned make up lover should have this iconic item in their arsenal. I bought this on the strength of MUA reviews, beauty editor recs,, online swatches and NARS' reputation. I hadn't tried it in person as my nearest counter is a 2hr round trip away and so a pain to visit.


I am fair skinned, N15-20 (I am undecided on my undertone! I am fairly …

So, Nars Dolce Vita, I bought this on the strength of MUA reviews, online swatches and NARS reputation. I hadn't tried it in person as my nearest counter is a 2hr round trip away and so a pain to visit.


I am fair skinned, N15-20 (I am undecided on my undertone! I am fairly neutral leaning toward cool, I think.), assisted blonde (highlights) with dark brown eyes. My lips are …
