BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

My skin recently changed from combination to dry, and upon developing some spider angiomas on my face and subsequently getting some treatment for them, I decided to up my sun cream game. However, my beloved Teint Idole by Lancome did not respond well to my new moisturiser and spf 45 skin routine (think: cakey mess), and I decided I wanted something a little more natural-looking and light weight …Read more

I went to get a sample of this after reading the reviews. I was very disappointed with the result.

As far as actually "concealing" anything, under eye darkness it does not conceal at all. So if you have dark undereyes like I do, good luck.

I also noticed that it wasn't brightening unlike concealers such as Tarte's Maracuja Creasless concealer (sadly that …

Where do I begin with this utter disappointment of a mascara. After reading raving reviews about this mascara, I bought it thinking it would be a cheaper alternative to Mac Extended Play Mascara (my holy grail) before I found a trick to extend its life (see my review of the Mac if you want to know how to make it last longer). Sadly, it wasn't meant to be AT ALL.

For a start, this …

I only tried a sample of this and was ultimately put off by how horrid it looks under makeup. However, if you don't want to wear makeup on top of it, at this stage in my HG sunscreen search, I would recommend this product. Having said that, I would still say it is too expensive for what it is.

Pros:
- Didn't leave my combination to dry skin feeling greasy if NOT worn …

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Extended Play Mascara - Endlessly Black

This is my holy grail mascara. I have long lashes, which look hideous in the wrong mascara. This mascara gives long lashes a beautiful and finely separated look, gives the impression of even longer lashes, doesn't uncurl pre-curled lashes and doesn't smudge or wear off throughout the day. People regularly ask me how I get my lashes to look like they do and assume I've had some …Read more

An absolute no-no on combination to dry skin. I bought this after reading all the raving reviews and I regretted it immediately. Upon putting it on (with a brush), it clung to my dry patches and after just one hour I looked like an oily mess, despite not having oily skin. I really wanted to like it and tried many other ways of applying it and different products underneath, but nothing worked. One …Read more
