Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

Jan/22/2017

I was looking for a relatively cheap everyday foundation that would stay on my skin for a good few hours and not transfer. For me, Estee Lauder DW is my HG, so I wasn't expecting miracles from any cheaper foundations (I've tried many different ones, and have been disappointed, including Revlon Colorstay, which I found transferred). Anyway, I picked this up on impulse, as it was one I …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Miss Hippie Waterproof Mascara

Aug/31/2016

So, initial impressions... Nice packaging, and pretty standard bristle brush. Firstly, it passed the 'will my sensitive eyes tolerate it' test, which is a feat in itself! The only other mascaras I've found that don't irritate my eyes are the volume million lashes line... my staple mascara is the excess waterproof. Other mascaras usually dry out/irritate my eyes, and …Read more

Eyeliner - Boots - smoulder gel eyeliner

This gel eyeliner is by Seventeen.
I had lasik surgery a few years back, and ever since, my eyes have been really dry and sensitive... I'd been finding most eyeliners were irritating my eyes and becoming unbearable to wear. Not only that, but when I was using gel eye drops, they'd just smudge off. I came across this gel eyeliner, which was really cheap.
Anyway, this stuff is …

Powder - Kiko Cosmetics - Colour Correction Powder

This is a game changer.
Let me be frank, I normally hate powders. They always make me look cakey, or really powdery and overly made up. They sink into my fine lines and make my already dry skin look even more dry. So usually, I don't bother.
So anyway, I saw this in Kiko and had a moment of madness and bought it, after seeing how luminous it looked on my hand.
I didn't …

I love this full coverage foundation - no others come close to the lasting power of DW! I can wear it all day and don't need to worry about any transfer. It is full coverage but doesn't feel heavy or mask-like.
The only reason I can't give it a 5 is due to my dry skin, which can sometimes mean it settles into dry patches and the fine lines underneath my eyes. I have to use a …

I'm really torn where this foundation is concerned... When freshly applied it gives a fresh, dewy glow and is medium coverage. NW25 matches me perfectly, which is also a plus.
However the main reason I purchase foundation is for it being long lasting - I have a busy, active job and hate when foundation rubs/wears off and leaves me with patches at the end of the day. I put this …

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

I swatched the colour 'sand' in the shop, it seemed to be a nice beige colour, not too dark at all. Did the same at home - seemed fine. But I applied it to my face and BAM, ORANGE! Unfortunately the disappointment didn't end there. I moisturised well, primed as usual and applied the foundation. It was pleasing to apply, full coverage and very matte and silky. It blended out nicely …Read more

Foundations - VICHY - Dermablend Corrective Foundation

Sep/03/2015

The coverage with this foundation is truly full, the most full coverage foundation I've tried to date. The finish is also nice and dewy. I wanted so much to love this foundation, but for me, a foundation needs to last most of the day - unfortunately this does not. Every time I touch my face, more rubs off, it rubs off on my boyfriends clothes, and it breaks down after just a few hours …Read more

Liquid - Kat Von D - Lock-It Foundation

Sep/03/2015

One of the best foundations I've ever tried - full coverage, doesn't transfer (even without setting powder), lasts all day. Its also a nice demi-matte finish.
I've tried so many foundations that claim to be long lasting and full coverage, but this is the only one that actually is! I've given it 4 stars because it oxidises a bit throughout the day and it's expensive …
