Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - E45 Moisturising Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2014

This is one of my favourite budget body lotions. Unscented, affordable, and easily absorbed, it's a great everyday body moisturiser. I love it for after the shower or swimming. As it is the lighter lotion version of the excellent E45 Cream, it is definitely not as thick or emolliant. For very dry skin days I use something richer like cocoa butter but for quick and easy everyday moisturising …Read more

Eye Shadow - RIMMEL - Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet

Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2014

I haven't used liquid e/s in a looong time, not since the good old days of Clinique Touch Tint for eyes. I got this on the basis of a few glowing YT reviews, and I was really liking the Maybelline Bad to the Bronze cream e/s so thought I would try something similar. It was a very reasonable £4.99 in Boots.


This has a wand applicator and feels COLD when first applied. I just …

Concealers - Bobbi Brown - Corrector

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2014

I use this in Porcelain Bisque, with Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer over it and some LM Secret Brightening Powder to set, and my, that's a good combination!

The corrector just neutralises the darkness of the shadows under my eyes a bit, you only need a tiny dab and then I feel it just lets the concealer do its job, and also provides a bit of layering so there's …

Foundations - Bourjois - 123 Perfect CC Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2014

I'd been wanting a decent BB/CC cream for a while, tried the Garnier one and it broke me out horribly, which very rarely happens to me, so I was a bit wary of the whole thing.

However, I went for the Bourjois one because of Lisa Eldridge, of course, and also because I have and love the Healthy Mix Serum foundation. I got it for £10 in Boots and love it so far. On my NW15 skin I …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo - Bad to the Bronze / On and On Bronze

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2014

I passed on this several times as in the pot it just looked far too warm for my skintone. I usually steer away from anything with bronze in the name when it comes to e/s as it just makes me look sickly. But I'd seen one too many glowing reviews and descriptions, and a particular YT vid where the girl was wearing it and I wanted it before she even said what it was.

At £4.99 I …

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Eyeshadow Single - Brulee

5.0

Dec/26/2013

Awesome eyeshadow. I have and love MAC Brule and would have repurchased it were it not for discovering this thanks to MUA. Matches my skintone perfectly, great for evening and mattifying my oily lids. Over a primer stays put and doesn't crease.

I use it for no makeup days just with mascara and it looks polished and neutral. It's also great with WetnWilds other gem, Nutty, in …

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Setting Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/20/2013

Thank you Sam Chapman for creating this brush. There has long, long been a gap in the market when it comes to brushes smaller than a blush/contour, but bigger than a domed eye blender brush. The only two I have had that came close were the MAC 225 (perfect, but discontinued, natch) and EDM eye kabuki (slightly too dense for a setting brush, but has its uses).

I needed, craved, a brush …

Blush - Sleek MakeUP - Mirrored Pink

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/24/2013

Sleek does it again. When they get a blush right, they REALLY get a blush right. Mirrored Pink from their Aqua Collection (that I struggled to find anywhere and eventually bought off Ebay) is on a par with their staple, Rose Gold. Not peachy like Rose Gold, this is much cooler toned true mid pink with silver rather than gold shimmer.

As is typical with all Sleek blushes, it's …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Mulch

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2013

Mulch sat unloved in my palette for quite a while. I always went for the cooler colours and would reach much more for Satin Taupe than I ever would for Mulch. I only ever used it with Patina as the gold sheen that both these shades have gave a lovely effect.

But I have now realised that a bit of warmth in the crease even on my super pale toned skin and blue eyes isn't always a …

Blush - Soap & Glory - Cheekmate Cheek & Lip Stain

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/10/2013

The shade of this is called Rosy Glow, and it's a gel rather than a liquid stain. This makes it very easy to apply and blend out, and there's less of a risk of it leaking and going all over your makeup bag!

Like all stains, you need to work fairly quickly to blend it out and you only need a tiny dot to provide a lovely healthy blush. The squeeze tube applicator makes it easy …
