Eye Shadow - Charlotte Tilbury - Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadow

5.0

This is a beautiful eyeshadow. I was skeptical at first because I find many cream eyeshadows don't blend well, but this blends like a dream. I use it almost daily. I have it in Mona Lisa which is a deep chocolaty bronze.

The best thing about it is its versatility. It's so buildable. During the day I use it just as a wash, and on my pale skin it looks almost like natural …

Liquid - Perricone MD - MD No Foundation Foundation Serum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

Despite the price this foundation has become one of my absolute favourites and is the only one I'd ever wear alone, with no other makeup on my face at all.

The main things that I noticed using it for the first time are that it is film forming (sort of like MAC face and body, but stronger), and that it really glides over and fills in my deep ice pick and pitted scars on my top …

Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex step 3 (Home treatment)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

This has to be a staple in my hair routine now. I have fine hair but a lot of it, and it has been SEVERELY damaged over the past few years thanks to a bleaching-over-henna and then re-dyeing disaster. I had brittle dry hair for a long time, and it was so porous that no deep moisturising treatments worked. Also because it's fine hair, oils would weigh it down so I avoided using any. I got …Read more

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Stay-In-Place Liquid Makeup

5.0

Jul/26/2017

I kind of avoided this foundation for a while for 2 reasons - 1: the person who recommended it to me had a face caked up in orange and I didn't want my makeup to look like that ... basically I was afraid it would oxidise on my skin. 2: it's for oily skin (mine is only slightly oily) and I've heard it promises a very matte powdery finish which I hate the look of. I prefer my skin to …Read more

Toners - Murad - Clarifying Toner

1.0

Jul/26/2017

This product is truly awful. I don't have particularly sensitive skin but it stung my skin like hell. At first I thought this was fine as I thought stinging and irritation meant it was doing something. I was using it with the Murad clarifying cleanser (which isn't as harsh as this but still quite harsh).

Turns out it WAS doing something - but the total opposite of what …

Liquid - Smashbox - Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

Jul/03/2017

This foundation breaks my heart a bit because it has the potential to be amazing but just doesn't cut it for me.

Pros: It is extremely hard for me to find a perfect colour match for my skin and this in 1.2 is exact. It is one of the only foundations I can use where I don't have to put it all over my face to make it look even, I can just put it in the areas I need it. It also …

Treatments (Face) - Alpha-H - Liquid Gold

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/15/2017

Honestly so good. As soon as I started using it it cleared my skin of pimples ... like within 2 days. It's also helping to reduce the red marks left over from previous breakouts really quickly. It's basically a miracle worker. I use it every night rather than every other night as directed, which I probably should not be doing, but before this I would wake up every day with new pimples …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2%

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/15/2017

Love this, in combination with Alpha H Liquid Gold it's working to get rid of my chin breakouts. I apply it twice a day all over the affected area. It kind of froths up when you apply it, and then it absorbs to a kind of sticky base which is really good for makeup/concealer application. It's also gentle and doesn't dry my skin out like other acne treatments too. Also using it on my …Read more

Stick - Hourglass Cosmetics - Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

4.0

Apr/25/2017

This is fantastic for if you need full coverage but still want to look natural. It took me a while to fall in love with it, I used up a couple of samples before I realised how good it is. I use it when my skin gets bad (usually I use MAC face and body or Smashbox liquid foundation when it's clear), and for nights out. It's quick and easy to apply (and other products blend over it so …Read more
