Foundations - Maybelline New York - Dream Urban Cover Foundation

This is frankly a game changer. Rarely does a foundation give both great coverage, is non drying and gives a glow.
For the first time in a long time I have received questions on what I’m wearing on my skin.
It does not sir in lines, it covers my redness. It’s not full coverage in the way that something like Kat Von D’s foundation or Estee Lauder Double wear is but it’s fine for me and …

Foundations - FLOWER Beauty - Light Illusion Foundation

This is a super duper glowy foundation. It is the opposite of matte. It does on well, blends in and does not sit in my fine lines like many other foundation. I have a ‘normal’ skin type but I can’t see many with oily skin loving this. It really does give a blinding glow. I wear the colour nude and it’s a good match for me.

Liquid - Kat Von D - Lock-It Foundation

I love this foundation – with some reservations.
It lasts well and covers redness exceptionally well while still giving the skin a flawless, beautiful, non-cakey cover.
I bought this after quite a while of using very natural glowy light coverage foundations and found it to be a very refreshing change and have to say I love the full coverage it gives.
However – it is not a …

Primer/ Corrector - Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Flawless Filter

This is one of those products that lives up to the hype.
It gives a proper glow rather than shine or blinding highlight to the skin.
I use this the old fashioned way - on top of my foundation.
I do not find that it's powerful enough to come through when worn underneath foundation (although I do use a high coverage one).
I tried wearing it all over - as a primer but I …

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara

2.0

As other reviewers have said this is incredibly overhyped. I think it depends what type of mascara you like as this produces a very clumpy effect. Benefit does one of my favourite mascaras - roller lash, and this is the polar opposite. I didn’t buy this but I did get it put on at the benefit counter, wore this all day and it was all smudged under my eyes by lunchtime! Not for me

Cleansers - Glossier - Milky Jelly Cleanser

Glossier has only just come to the UK and I have been so impressed by the range, but this product is my favourite. The texture feels so good on my skin, it doesn’t leave it tight like some face washes and it is pretty good at removing heavy make up. I will be repurchasing again and again.

Liquid - Deciem - The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation

I have to say I do not understand the rave reviews. Firstly - while it’s cheap, you don’t get a lot of product for your money, putting it at about the same price as high street foundations. It markets itself as very lightweight and this may be true if you have very young skin but I do not find it to be so on my skin. I am in my 30s and while I have no proper lines or wrinkles I have very fine …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

I’m afraid that while there’s no denying this product is excellent value for money and provides a solution to the instability of vitamin c, I would not purchase again. The cons just out weigh the pros. I understand the science behind why it’s gritty but I find rubbing it into my face irritating, for some reason the taste always ends up in my mouth and lastly, for me a vit c product is for the …Read more

I completely love this - I was using the lush one which is cheaper but this is vastly superior, less hard and harsh. I have the flavour fruit of passion, takes off the dead skin, leaves your lips soft - all you want really.
