May/31/2013

I just recently bought MAC's Brush Cleanser and it works really well for spot cleaning, you can instantly tell when the brushes are clean. However I decided to deep clean my brushes with this today and I wasn't so wowed by the outcome as it was impossible to tell if they were clean plus the packaging was wasting product all over the place. Overall, I do like this item for spot cleaning …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Concealer

May/28/2013

Studio Sculpt was my favourite concealer until it was recently discontinued so I have since been on the hunt for a new one. I bought Pro Longwear in the same shade which was NW15, which in fact are no where near the same colour, the Pro Longwear is much darker and more orange compared to the Studio Sculpt NW15 (so keep that in mind if you are pale). Once on the skin it gradually gets darker and …Read more

I recently bought Dipdown as a recommendation for my brows, I originally used Brun eyeshadow to fill them in however it didn't last all day so I was on the hunt for something better and this is definitely it. Dipdown has a slight red undertone when compared to Brun so it's far more realistic for my brunette/auburn hair colour. I apply this with an angled brush for a strong and precise …Read more

Eyes - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - Bare Study

May/13/2013

I recently bought a second pot of Bare Study as I loved the first so much, originally I was going to buy Painterly but this looked so much prettier upon application. Unlike what many people say, I find that this product is not crease resistant (on my eyelids anyway). Worn underneath eyeshadows it literally creases within 30 minutes, however worn with a primer underneath such as Too Faced Shadow …Read more

Apr/27/2013

This is actually the first powder I have bought so my review may be a little biased however I really like this product. I use this to set my liquid foundation rather than wearing it alone and it produces a lovely base. It lasts well on the skin during the day and I am fairly oily so that's a massive plus for me. I have broke out since using this product but I tend to at random times so it …Read more

Apr/16/2013

I hate to give a bad review for Illamasqua as I love every one of their previous products that I have tried however this lipstick is totally different to the others. I already knew it was going to be sheer and dry so that didn't really bother me, it's actually the way it looks on the lips! It's horrible and cheap, and for some reason it also makes my skin look really bad as it …Read more

Apr/13/2013

Recently bought this concealer after MAC's Studio Sculpt was discontinued so I was looking for a similar product and I was pretty happy when I came across this one from Illamasqua. It almost has a similar consistency as it's creamy but slightly dry, it definitely needs to be warmed up before applying. However I do love this concealer as the results look amazing and it lasts a long time …Read more

Eye Shadow - Illamasqua - Pure Pigment - Static

Apr/13/2013

Static pigment was one of the first items I bought from Illamasqua. It's a gorgeous product and is very similar to MAC's reflects glitter so it's definitely on the sheerer side upon application when in comparison to the usual pure pigments. I do like to wear this with neutral eyeshadows but if you really want to play up to the colour (which I certainly do most of the time) I use a …Read more

Oct/22/2012

I bought Freak in the new Christmas exclusive range, it's a 30ml bottle which is really great because it's so much cheaper than the 75ml. The fragrance itself is definitely a heavy scent but floral and feminine at the same time, someone here has described it as 'vintage' and I totally agree, I think that is the perfect description and is probably one of the main reasons I am …Read more

Lipstick - Illamasqua - Box (matte)

Oct/16/2012

I'd been wanting to try an Illamasqua lipstick for a while, and I was also looking for a nice red shade which this brand definitely have plenty of. I was particularly looking for a blue-toned red and Box seemed the perfect option. All I can say is I have not put this lipstick down since I have bought it, I have been constantly wearing it. The pigmentation is amazing, aswell as the longevity …Read more
