Concealers - CLINIQUE - Line Smoothing Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/09/2014

I have being repurchasing this concealer in '02 light' for many years, but I will not buy another. If, like me, you are very pale, this concealer will look too dark/orange on you. Clinique in general never produces light enough shades for me (02 is the lightest shade in this product).

Another problem is the title. It is in no way 'line smoothing' and I never …

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow - Bone #16

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2013

PROS:
- Incredibly densely pigmented. Only use a tiny amount!
- This lasts all day (on me), with only very slight fading.
- Can be used as a face highlight, too.
- not as stark as a pure white colour.
- no visible glitter particles, just a very powerful shimmer.
- sturdy packaging, which can clip into a Bobbi Brown customisable palette.

CONS:
- high …

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Eye Shadow - Cement

5.0

Nov/04/2013

This is a perfect colour for blonde eyebrows.
It is a slightly ashy beige powder. If you have light skin, it looks very natural as a crease colour, with just enough depth to subtly define the socket.
You can't really go wrong with this shadow.

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Powder Blush - Desert Rose

5.0

Nov/04/2013

The reason I love this blush so much is because this colour is in my cheeks before I apply foundation, so it looks really natural (as long as you are light-handed).

It has a few shimmer particles in it, but these are undetectable on the cheeks. It has a matte finish. In my opinion, this blush looks lovely with dark hair and pale skin. Perfect wind-bitten autumn/winter …

Liquid - Liz Earle - Sheer Skin Tint

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2013

PROS:
- Light enough for very pale skin
- Feels light on the skin
- Very natural-looking

CONS:
- I don't find this a very good base for makeup, since It doesn't feel like it really adheres to the skin and stays put all day (it is slightly slippery).
- SPF 15 is too low for me, personally.
- It is sheer, so only suits people with even skin tone.

Liquid - Liz Earle - Signature Foundation

Nov/04/2013

I'm so relieved to find this fantastic, medium-coverage foundation. I will repurchase this until it is discontinued.

PROS:
- The lightest colour is light and cool-toned enough for my very pale skin, which I cannot say for most brands.
- Hygienic pump-dispenser
- No SPF. To some this may be a con, but I use a separate SPF underneath, so I don't want anything …

Moisturizers - ORIGINS - Brighter by Nature SPF 35 skin tone correcting moisturizer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2013

I love Origins, but I'm not convinced by this moisturiser.
I have not noticed any difference in my skin tone. I will finish the pot since it is so expensive, but I am looking forward to finishing it.

PROS:
If I were dedicated to only using purely physical UV blockers, then I would probably repurchase this, since SPF 35 seems to be the maximum physical SPF that I can use …

Moisturizers - Alpha-H - Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2013

PROS:
This does not leave a white film or greasy texture (once it has dried - takes about 5 minutes for me). I can't feel it on my skin at all.
Nice, hygienic pump dispenser.
The look and feel of makeup is unaffected by this product.

CONS:
I don't have dry skin, but this is not moisturising enough for me. I use a separate moisturiser underneath.
My …

Eyeliner - Illamasqua - Precision Ink - Havoc

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2013

This is my favourite eyeliner of all time.

I am extremely picky about liners, and will only use those that are completely smudge proof, otherwise it quickly collects under my lower lashes. Believe me when I say there is no way this can fade or smudge (physically impossible once it has dried on your skin, which takes about 30-60 seconds). You can feel totally safe to go swimming with …

Polishes - OPI - My Pointe Exactly

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/02/2013

This is very easy to apply with no streaking, although I can't get it to go on evenly over the whole nail. It ends up opaque near the cuticle, and very sheer at the tip (even after three coats). This strange gradient effect, along with the grey/blue colour of the polish, makes me look ill. It might work better on a warmer toned skin, and it certainly is a gorgeous alternative nude colour …Read more
