Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

I definately fell into the hype when I bought this blush. It was THE blush to have and THE blush in all the magazines, won awards etc. I just sort of fell into the hype and bought it. It comes in a lovely case, but it does get dirty quite easily.

I find that I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this blush. For a while, I thought it looked amazing on my skin, gave me a …

Lip Treatments - Dermalogica - Age Smart Renewal Lip Complex

2.0

Oct/29/2011

I had high expectations for this product. For the price and the amount of product you got, I used this sparingly and only at night time.

It is quite thick in consistency and smells fruity but yet a little artificial. Not a scent I would say I really liked but it didn't bother me to the extent that I wouldn't use it.

I didn't feel it made any difference …

Crème - SUQQU - cream foundation

Oct/29/2011

I am reviewing the Frame Fix Cream Foundation. I purchased this together with the liquid version at Selfridges. It was very expensive - £65 for 30g!!.

It is a really nice product. My own personal preference but I tend to have 2 foundations on the go at once. One cream and the other liquid so that I can "up" the coverage on those bad days when I need it. The liquid …

Liquid - SUQQU - Frame Fix Liquid Foundation Lightness

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2011

I have read and heard a lot about Suqqu but it is only available in certain countries and in the UK, only in Selfridges. The only thing that was holding me back was the price tag. I would definately class Suqqu as a high end brand.

I was having a bad day and decided to splurge and bought both the liquid foundation and the cream foundation (reviewed separately).

It comes …

Blush - Laura Mercier - Second Skin, Barely Pink

5.0

Oct/29/2011

I really like this blush. I am NC15-20 and think that this is a lovely natural blush. It is very difficult to describe, but when I wear it, it is a very natural light pink flush of colour. I don't find I can every overdo it with this blush.

I quite like using this as a base blush and would apply a second blush colour over the apples of my cheeks.

Lotions/ Creams - Laura Mercier - Almond Coconut Milk Hand Crème

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2011

I really like this hand creme. I have the matching body creme as well.

The scent is really nice, a sweet almond coconut vanilla type scent. I find that in the hand creme form, this is much stronger than the body creme. For this reason, I am a little bit wary about using this during the day, at work etc as I know some people dislike such strong sweet scents.

The product …

Lotions/ Creams - Laura Mercier - Almond Coconut Milk Souffle Body Creme

I love this body creme. It smells amazing and the scent lasts all day. It is quite a sweet almond vanilla coconut scent.

The product itself absorbs really quickly into my skin. I use it both night time and bed time as I have quite dry skin - especially on my legs. It isn't stinky and because it absorbs quickly, I don't have to worry getting it on my clothes …

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Liquid Facial Soap - Mild

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/24/2011

For the last few years, I went through a phase of trying new skincare and base makeup. I have a few cleansers that I like using but the Clinique liquid facial soap mild is the one that I have repurchased. I think I may have repurchased this about 9 times so far.

This is a really nice cleanser, it lathers well and removes all my make up. It does sting a little if used near the eye …

Misc Beauty Tools - Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/24/2011

These are my favourite blotting sheets. I have tried the ones that are a bit like tracing paper and the ones with a layer of powder on it. I prefer these ones.

I find that it absorbs the oil really well and I always keep a packet in my handbag.

I don't think these are available in the UK anymore. The last time I purchased these they cost £4.99. I tend to order them …

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2011

I purchased this a number of years ago and didn't like it. I prefer foamy cleansers and found that this one just didn't lather. I did use it up but didn't repurchase. Don't get me wrong, the cleaner does it's job, it removes all my makeup and my skin felt clean. It was just because I like foamy cleansers that I didn't repurchase.

I noticed a number of …
