Moisturizers - Elizabeth Arden - Visible Difference Refining Moisture Cream Complex

This is a fantastic face cream for people with very dry skin in need of deep moisturisation. It deeply nourishes the skin and almost feels like a primer after it has sunken into pores. My skin is left looking smooth and brighter as it gets a surge of hydration. I sometimes get patches of eczema around my eyes and jaw and this really does a good job of relieving those areas and as a result …Read more

A great foundation for those with very dry skin. I've been getting patches of eczema on my face lately and the last thing you'd want is to put makeup over peeling, flaky and irritated skin, however, this smoothes over those areas and no one would guess that I have eczema! Although it's marketed towards dry skin, it still can sometimes look too shiny, however, if it does then a …Read more

Mascara - Yves Saint Laurent - Babydoll Mascara

2.0

Jan/05/2015

Not worth £25. It has only lasted about 2 months and I don't even use this everyday. The product dries up very quickly and a £7 maybelline mascara can last me up to 5/6 months with better results! Unless the lady sold me the tester tube rather than a brand new product, this mascara has really disappointed me, especially after being really impressed by the sample free gift I had of it …Read more

Powder - CHANEL - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder

Jun/05/2014

I bought this powder hoping it would be good "dewy" powder for my dry skin for setting foundation and concealer. I am nc25ish/nars ceylan/Punjab, and bought no. 20 as a setting powder. Upon application it looked lovely - sheer, slightly sheen to give a luminous finish and there were no sparkles on the face as there is in the pan, so I was a happy bunny. However, after half an hour my …Read more

Cleansers - ORIGINS - Make A Difference Rejuvenating Cleansing Milk

2.0

May/24/2014

This cleanser only smeared my makeup rather than remove it. I was not impressed by it. For £20 it is not worth it as I have to use it multiple times in one wash to remove makeup and even then I have to double cleanse with another product. I hope I will find better products from this brand as I've heard origins to have a good skin care range. Will not repurchase this product.

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Expert Face Brush

Dec/19/2013

Never thought a brush could make such a difference to makeup results until I got this! I always use a traditional foundation brush whenever I wear foundation and it takes time and you have to use certain sides of the brush to get around your nose and eyes. With this brush I can easily get my whole face covered so quickly! It's evenly shaped all the way around and the small head makes it easy …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Zen

Dec/13/2013

I got this in the Adult Content blush palette (which is a palette I highly recommend as it contains essential blush colours for fair-medium tones) and I use it for contouring. It's a good colour for this purpose as it's not too strong yet not too sheer. The colour can be built up for intensity which is good as you'll have less chance of getting too much colour in one swipe. It goes …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Honeylove

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2013

Use this everyday! I love having a glowy skin look so a matte neutral rosy beige lipstick like Honeylove is perfect for a contrast texture and the rose undertone brightens my complexion. It's not a drying matte formula which I found is the case with Please Me. It lasts fairly long and looks great with Well Dressed blush by Mac or Nars Deep Throat as it brings out the pink tones of those …Read more

Liquid - Yves Saint Laurent - Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation ] [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/30/2013

Had higher expectations. I have dry skin but this is oil-based so it gave me itchy spots. The colour also oxidised (I was the shade b50 and it become much darker throughout the day). I do like a dewy finish but this was just oily, not fresh looking dewy. There is a difference between oily skin and dewy skin and this didn't look healthy it just made me look greasy and I just wanted to wash my …Read more

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2013

Not too impressed. I don't have severely dark circles and this didn't even cover mine too well. It says it's creamy but it's drying and doesn't blend well with my concealer brush. It doesn't brighten. It doesn't conceal. so it's good for nothing. I'm going to repurchase fake up from benefit (in medium which is the same shade as custard but brighter) …Read more
