Eye Primer - essence - I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base

Jan/21/2015

To be honest, I can't give much of a review of this eye primer because I really don't like using it. I can't give my opinion on the lasting power or whether it helps with creasing.

The primer is coloured and normally I prefer these as it cancels out veins and discoloration. However, I am very fair (NC10) and this primer is way too dark for my skin tone. Also, it is …

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

Jan/21/2015

This is a nice matte bronzer for pale to medium skin tones. I wouldn't recommend it though if you have a deeper skin tone though as I don't think the colour will show.

The bronzer itself is a neutral medium brown. It blends easily and is nice for both a contour or a light bronzer. The lasting power could be better but it still lasts most of the day. It's only if …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre Lipstick - Lovelorn

This is my absolute favourite lipstick. It is a beautiful mid-pink colour. On my fair skin it is brighter than my natural lips but isn't too bright or intense. The formula is also lovely. I'd never used lustre finish lipsticks before because I thought they didn't last very well. But I find this lipstick lasts very well. It is a creamy finish so it won't last all day but it …Read more

Styling Products - Living Proof - Restore Targeted Repair Cream

Jan/21/2015

I love this treatment. I have reasonably healthy hair and find a lot of masks and treatments don't seem to change my hair at all. This treatment makes me hair feel a lot softer, more manageable, makes it easier to comb through my hair, and it smells lovely. Also, I find if I use this before I blow dry my hair, my hair stays straight for longer and retains style better than if I use another …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Hourglass Cosmetics - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

Jan/21/2015

This product has a lot of hype around it so I had wanted to try it for a long time. When I finally did, I was a bit underwhelmed. I found the primer didn't work well on any dry patches I had and didn't control oil that amazingly. I mean it did control it but I expected more. And by the end of the day my face/foundation looked very dry and dull.

I think this primer would work …

Lipstick - Too Faced - Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

5.0

Jan/21/2015

I adore these liquid lipsticks. They have relatively good lasting power (3-4 hours), feel creamy and hydrating on the lips, and have a nice satin finish. When they do wear off, they leave a slight stain to the lips so it's not very noticeable where it has worn off.

Two downsides to these. Firstly, they do transfer very easily and can end up all over your face if not careful …

I have 6 of these Chi Chi palettes now, so clearly I really love them. They are very pigmented, buttery, blend easily, and have little fallout. So far I have not experienced a bad colour out off all 6 I have. I always use a primer but I don't experience fading or creasing. For the price, these are a definite must have.

Jan/21/2015

I just repurchased my second pot of this mask and I love it. I find many masks do nothing for my skin and I don't notice any difference in my skin. This mask is different. I think it does a great job and clearing out my skin. It is very intense and strong so if you have sensitive or gentle skin, don't even think about this. I use this mask when I'm breaking out or my skin is …Read more

Moisturizers - First Aid Beauty - Daily Face Cream

5.0

Jan/21/2015

I love this face cream! It has quickly become my holy grail. I find the cream to be very moisturizing and hydrating but sinks into the skin very quickly and leaves a matte finish. I can apply makeup right over the top no problem and it helps control oil well throughout the day. If you want a hydrating cream but want a matte finish go out and buy this moisturizer. You will love it.

Lip Treatments - First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Lip Therapy

I have quite dry lips and this hydrates them quite well. It isn't super intensive and not something I can use over night. But during the day when I can reapply, it works really well. I find it lasts several hours and my lips feel very hydrated after using it.
