Whilst I initially thought this was a brilliant concept and something I could really do with I was quite disappointed that the blender defender doesn’t stand up alone. The bottom is completely rounded and not practical in the sense that it will never be at hand when I need it. Yes it’s a good quality product and a good size may I add but either this should have a stand or the bottom should have …Read more

Palettes - PAT MCGRATH LABS - Mothership V Eyeshadow Palette - Bronze Seduction

Oct/19/2018

This was my first ever Pat McGrath product so other than what I’ve read in reviews I wasn’t sure what the eyeshadows were really like and when I first swatched them on my arm I have to say I was disappointed because they seemed quite chalky and patchy. That was until I used them on my eyes, I have never used such beautiful eyeshadows that blend so effortlessly. Considering how they swatched I …Read more

The packaging on this new beauty is just so pretty and glittery. I wasn’t that excited about this to start with as the shades were basically neutral with a pop of colour but since getting it and playing with them they are in fact really pretty. I am so happy to say that I can compare this palette to the Modern Renaissance. The blendability is so similar, the fallout is minimal and its so …Read more

Eye Shadow - Morphe - Vault collection

Oct/07/2018

So so so disappointed in this collection. After the first successful collaboration (Morphe x Jaclyn Hill) you’d think they had done a pretty good job. The first palette was a really good start. Until they released what I can only describe as a car crash! I don’t believe for one second the launch was postponed so they could be repressed. However there’s been couple of people who know the process …Read more

Apr/07/2018

So I’ve debated for quite a long time whether to buy this or not because of the price and whether or not it would really live up to the reviews. I went into Selfridges and tried it for myself and to be honest having a little tried on my face I couldn’t really see much difference and I thought it looked slightly glittery even in natural daylight but I went for it anyway and thought i’l try it at …Read more

Palettes - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Prism Eye Shadow Palette

Oct/12/2017

So I bought this the moment it was released because I personally think their products are amazing and I honestly believe the MR palette is one of the best out there. Although subculture was a little bit of a let down for me in terms of blendability I had to try Prism, especially after seeing the swatches. The colours are just beautiful and straight away there are so many different eye looks to …Read more

Highlighters - Marc Jacobs - Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter

fromRedGem

Oct/11/2017

I saw this on YouTube and loved the look of the colour as well as the fact it smelt of coconut. But I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is. I've used quite a few high end highlighting drops etc and none of them really give you that POW under your foundation but this is actually quite powerful. I dot it on 4 times all over and I literally look like I'm made of gold ???? So a …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Unlisted Brand - Rae Morris Mini Kabuki #2

Sep/22/2017

After watching Nikkie Tutorials using this brush for highlighting I thought it looked like a very good quality brush. So after finding out that it was in fact a Rae Morris Deluxe Mini Kabuki #2 I had a look online and obviously it's not a cheap brush but after biting the bullet and buying it, it's not hard to see why it's expensive. The quality of this brush speaks for itself, not …Read more

Jul/22/2017

I've had this product now for over a year and only wore this once, until now. I live in the UK so I had to get this off Sephora at the time and when it arrived I was livid to see that the tube seemed nearly empty and if heard quite a few reviews about this so I was hesitant about really using it although I tried it, I wasn't blown away by it. So, today having a sort out with my makeup I …Read more

Apr/21/2017

I thought I had already found my perfect foundation in Dior Skin Airflash but then I heard about this one and was really curious to see how it would fare against the spray and I personally think it's even better. I went in store to get matched up and after thinking I was definitely a shade 10 I was quite surprised I was indeed a 15 when the sales assistant tried it on my face. I was amazed …Read more
