BB Cream - Lioele - Water Drop BB (SPF 27 / PA++)

Apr/11/2011

This was my first foray into BB creams, and I was certainly not disappointed!

The Lioele Water Drop BB Cream is specifically formulated for dry skins. I have very dry skin, and most tinted bases or foundations I use really accentuate the dryness. Not so with the Lioele. I have found that the way to apply it is to smooth it on as you would a primer, rather than rub it in as you would a …

Eye Shadow - RIMMEL - Colour Mousse 8hr Shadow

Apr/07/2011

Another brilliant drugstore find. I am surprised at some of the more negative reviews, as I cannot fault this product.

It is worth mentioning that I have extremely dry skin, so perhaps the consistency of this eyeshadow is better for my skin type.

I would describe these shadows as a creamy-mousse. They are very pigmented; a little goes a long way. They are also totally …

I was amazed by this concealer. I wasn't expecting much from a drugstore brand, but I had heard good reviews, and finally bought it when it was 50% off in a sale at Superdrug.

I have very sensitive skin around my eyes as well as eczema, which tends to cause stinging when I apply most products. I didn't experience any stinging with this concealer. Also, because of the …

Blush - Sleek MakeUP - Blush in Pan Tao

This is such a beautiful blush. It's peachy-coral in colour, and it is nice to find this colour in a matte (rather than shimmery) consistency. It is very pigmented, and at £4.29 for a whopping 8g of product, it is an absolute bargain.

Eye Shadow - Sleek MakeUP - Paraguaya Palette

For £6.49, you really can't go wrong with this 12-shade, limited edition palette.

The pigmentation is fantastic, and there is a good mix of matte and shimmery colours.

The shimmery colours have quite a chalky consistency, so they work best when packed onto the eyelid with a brush, rather than by sweeping it across the lid with a brush (resulting in fallout), but once …

Contour - Sleek MakeUP - Face Contour Kit

Feb/10/2011

I am stunned by how brilliant this product is for such a low price.

This is a duo-palette kit, with a dark contour colour and a slightly shimmery highlight colour. It comes in 3 shades: light, medium and dark. I am using light, and I am about an NW20. I usually use a lighter contour colour (I have been using Illamasqua's Rumour, which is very light), and this is darker and not …

Brows - SUQQU - Brow Pen in 02 Brown

Feb/10/2011

A brilliant brow pen! It's very expensive, but it is the best brow product I have found. It looks like a very fine felt-tip pen, and you can use it to draw on light, feathery strokes to fill in or shape your brows. It is very natural looking, and you can build it up to a thicker look/darker colour. I use this to build the shape of my brows, and I then go over it with Laura Mercier's …Read more

This is an amazing cleanser! I received a free sample, and didn't expect to love it as much as I did. You only need the tiniest amount, as a little goes a very long way. I have very sensitive, very dry skin and facial eczema, and this is literally the only product that does not sting when I use it. It is even more gentle and moisturising than Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. My face feels …Read more

Hair Treatments - Kérastase - Ciment Thermique Heat-Activated Reconstructor

Jan/21/2011

I have very dry hair with damaged ends, which is naturally curly. This product helps me to tame my hair so that I can straighten it, and also helps to protect it from heat from styling tools. I wouldn't say it makes my hair silky and glossy, but without this product, my hair is a lot more dry and less managable. I have had the tube for over a year and have hardly used any product - I have …Read more

Eyeliner - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Cream Eyeliner - All Colors

Dec/12/2010

I am blown away by how brilliant this eyeliner this. For £3.50 I was not expecting much. It glides on easily, and is smooth and creamy. It stays put all day, and was difficult to remove, even with an oil-based cleanser. Brilliant.
