Eye Primer - W7 - Eye Got The Power Eyeshadow Base Primer

I got this to compare against the Urban Decay Original Primer Potion, which is my HG eye primer. This is much, much cheaper at £5.95 but reviews elsewhere online have been pretty positive, so I was hoping it would work well for me. Sadly that wasn't the case.

I have oily lids and for me, this never dried down completely. As a result it made any powder eyeshadow I applied over the …

Liquid - Max Factor - FaceFinity All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I have oily/combination skin that very rarely suffers with anything approaching dryness, but this foundation made my face look like I'd never applied moisturiser in my life! On application it felt like a nice enough liquid foundation, similar to the Maybelline Super Stay Foundation. But once it had dried down it left me looking like I had a super matte mask on my face, which although I …Read more

Mascara - Neutrogena - Healthy Volume Waterproof

I really like the non-waterproof version of this mascara, so thought I would give this version a go especially as at the time I got it, it was just coming into spring when my eyes tend to be more watery due to hay fever.

Although this has a similar look, feel and application to the regular version - including the brush, which I think is identical - the actual formula is very different. …

I tested this in store and really liked the scent so purchased a 100ml bottle. According to the details for it online this has top notes of green mandarin, red berries and Sakura cherry blossom (one of my all time favourite scents). The heart notes are jasmine, tuberose and osmanthus, whilst the base notes are sandalwood, amber and Madagascan vanilla. All combined this gives a lovely, floral …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primerizer

This has such a cult following I felt sure I was missing out on something, so when I found a 30ml bottle in a cosmetics outlet store for $29.50, I knew I had to give it a try!

I'm so disappointed that this did nothing for my skin. It was very lightweight, didn't make my skin react or cause any congestion like a lot of other primers do, but overall it just felt like I was …

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Drops Of Light Pure Clarifying Foam Wash

3.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

This was a pretty standard face wash. I wasn't sure about it at first because it's very heavily scented which I'm always cautious of because of my sensitive skin. It claims to be a rich creamy foam wash (which I agree with) that purifies without stripping the skin (which I don't agree with so much). Although it didn't strip my skin, I did have to be careful when using …Read more

Conditioner - Garnier - Ultimate Blends Almond Crush Conditioner

1 month ago

I LOVE this! It smells absolutely amazing - like almond marzipan - and it leaves my hair feeling really soft, without weighing it down. Used alongside the shampoo this is the closest I've come to a perfect match for my hair (greasy roots, slightly unruly ends) and the 360ml bottle lasts ages, meaning it's great value for money too. I'll definitely be including this in my …Read more

I LOVE this! It smells absolutely amazing - like almond marzipan - and it leaves my hair feeling really soft. A little goes a long way too so the 360ml bottle lasted me about 2 months. Used alongside the conditioner, the combination of the two products together is fast becoming a favourite staple of my hair care routine.

Scrubs - Simple - Smoothing Facial Scrub

1.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Credit where it's due, this was gentle on my skin and didn't cause any reactions. It didn't really smell of anything which was also a plus point. The problem is it didn't work as a facial scrub! The granules are so few and far-between that once I'd smoothed it onto my face, they felt almost nonexistent. To be really effective this needs to have 3 times the amount of …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Unlisted Brand - Bomb Cosmetics Mandarin Cleansing Shower Butter

1 month ago

I had a love/hate relationship with this shower butter. Whilst I absolutely LOVED the scent (really fresh and clean like ripe oranges) and the fact that it left my skin feeling super soft, the whole process of using it was just so fiddly! First off it comes in a pot with a lid, which is almost impossible to get off when you have wet hands in the shower/bath. Secondly, once the lid was finally …Read more
