Concealers - NYX Professional Makeup - HD Photogenic Concealer in Yellow

I find this to be good for the price. But it took me a while to figure out the best way to use it (for me!) I don't use this everyday, only now and again when I need a bit of extra help if I haven't slept well, or on special occasions on days when I'm going to be wearing a lot of make up - I dont use this unless I know I'm going to be putting foundation on top as the yellow …Read more

Mascara - NYX Professional Makeup - The Skinny Mascara

May/01/2016

I bought this product specifically for use on my lower lashes and for this purpose, it is useful. The wand really is tiiiiiny! To be honest, while I do use this often, it's kind of just because I have it, and I think it's cute. I do feel like it's a bit of a gimick and no better/easier than using a normal mascara on lower lashes. It's not a bad product for this specific use - …Read more

Masks - The Body Shop - Honey & Oat 3-in-1 Scrub Mask

5.0

Feb/27/2016

I have been using this for about a month now, I love it. It smells so good I want to eat it every time I use it (I've resisted so far!) I use this once a week and a deep cleansing mask once a week as I'm not sure how cleansing this is - it's more of a gentle exfoliate/moisturising treatment, but it feels very luxurious to use and I love it as part of a more relaxing pamper session!

I don't think this is very good for concealing spots or blemishes but I don't want to mark it too harshly for that, as I knew that when I bought it and I purchased only for use on my waterline. For the price, I think it does a great job for that! It's a good colour for brightening the eyes (I have the light) it will last for ages but I think I would repurchase if it ran out as its …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Concealer

Jan/22/2016

I've had my eye on this for years and read 1000 wonderful reviews and was still never quite convinced to splash out on it. But just entering my 30's I'm finding my dark circles becoming more noticable and decided now was the time. I'm always a little cautious of products with so much hype around them but I've been using this for a week now and it has honestly upped my …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - Roller Lash Mascara

Jan/20/2016

I got a sample of this in a set I recieved for Xmas so I thought I would give it a go. I honestly think this does a good job of curling my lashes. Certainly better than anything else I've used. However I have short lashes so length and volume are much more important to me and this doesn't do much for either of those things! For that reason, this isn't for me, however I do think it …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Hot Tahiti Lipstick

Jan/09/2016

This is my favourite Mac lipstick out of the 4 I own. It is such a beautiful berry colour. Unfortunately as others have said it is not very long lasting so I tend to use it on more 'lazy days.' It is very comfortable and I like how versatile it is - a light swipe gives lips a natural wash of berry colour (perfect for as you are running out of the door!) or you can build it up and/or …Read more

Cleansers - Soap & Glory - Soap And Glory Peaches And Clean 3 In 1 Wash Off Deep Purifying Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2016

Mixed feelings on this one - it definitely does a great job at removing make up! However I have a few niggles - I would call the scent peaches and mint rather than peaches and cream, and I find peaches and mint an odd combination! I think it's the slight minty side to it that makes my skin tingle slightly and I do find it quite drying. Overall I don't think this is a bad cleanser, just …Read more

Body Scrubs - Soap & Glory - The Scrub of Your Life

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2016

I recieved 2 soap and glory scrubs for Xmas and I am really enjoying using them. Of the two I much prefer the scent of pulp friction which is much more fruity (I have put no to repurchase only because I would probably repurchase that one instead due to scent) but the scrub itself is amazing - just the right amount of scrubbers to feel like it's really doing the job without irtitating the …Read more

Mascara - Soap & Glory - Thick & Fast Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2016

For Christmas I got both this and benefit they're real which has been my favourite for years! I've been using the soap and glory one everyday. As a direct comparison the thick and fast is definitely a wetter formula, so you have to be a bit more careful when putting it on to make sure it doesn't get on eyelids etc... But once it has dried it stays put, lasts all day, no flaking and …Read more
