I am a hardcore Tilbury fan, so I got this within the first 5 minutes of pre-sale. I test products very thoroughly, however, and this is not a biased review. So here goes:

What is this palette?
It is what ABH's Soft Glam would like to be, but is not. An offering of twelve warm-ish, soft glam shadows for a wide variety of looks, ranging from flattering soft naturals to …

This warmer neutrals palette is a holy grail if, and *ONLY* if:

you're a more mature person, well into your thirties and upward, looking for an amazing, super-versatile, everyday palette for work. If you fit into this category, you'll enjoy the mattes and shimmers immensely. You won't get bored, as you can combine these in so many ways, always staying within that safe …

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Liquid Foundation

Its name is spot -on really, says it all. It looks like amazing skin. Lasts all day, is absolutely seamless and gives a stable, satin finish. During winter, my HG is the Pro-Matte Infallible (oily skin here), but this is better for the summer months. Will definitely buy again, this truly looks like your skin but if it were naturally great.

This is excellent. Takes a couple of tries to master the wand, but when you do, oh my. It curls, lengthens, thickens so impressively but somehow still manages to look natural. It stays all day. Four stars because it's not as scandalously va va voom as my HG Mac In Extreme Dimension, which I have started to go off from lately, as it is a bit too much for daytime use. This is now my everyday …Read more

Eyeliner - CLINIQUE - Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen

May/23/2018

This has replaced my Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick, which I adore but it dries out too quickly to justify its price. It was suggested by the Pixiwoo sisters, so I gave it a shot and I was in for a treat. Perfectly thin, precise, jet black, matte lines that last all day. So easy to use. I wish I had this when I was an eyeliner novice, it would have saved me so much time. Stays put all day, even …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Lixirskin Vitamin C Paste

May/03/2018

As with all the Lixir range, this is a game-changer. Despite my middle age, I still get breakouts if I don't stick to a strict cleansing regime.I had resorted to double cleansing with baby soap, as it was mild but also got rid of everything efficiently. My skin was clean, yes, but still felt dry and 'pulled' the minute I dried my face, at which point I had to race over and apply my …Read more

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - LIXIRSKIN Universal Emulsion

May/02/2018

EDIT: Upgrade to five stars, the smell is completely unnoticeable to me now, those around me insisted it was pleasant to begin with, but this is the best moisturiser I've used, hands down. It's a joy to use. Already ordered my back up of the entire range, my skin's never looked better.

The Lixir range is a new approach to skincare, so I tested everything thoroughly. I …

Palettes - Charlotte Tilbury - Instant Look in a Palette: Beauty Glow (Rose Gold & Bronze Tones)

Light-medium, combination skin with bottle blonde hair here. I cannot praise this enough, it's a ridiculously good product. All colours blend like a dream. I use the darker blush shade for my eye crease as well. It looks limited but I assure you, it's not. If you play around with this long enough, you can get about 5 or 6 distinct looks out of it, that work any hour of the day …Read more

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/30/2018

Late-thirties here, with medium, combination skin. I am a very picky beauty consumer and have had the best experience with this product; the reviews here are puzzling. This foundation is medium-coverage, with a satin (not entirely matte) finish. The powder from the same line is a perfect addition on top. As the name suggests, this photographs *beautifully*. Unless you are a blogger though, that …Read more

Concealers - Catrice - Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer

Dec/25/2017

This is absolutely perfect for my wrinkley undereye area. Doesn't budge all day, does not crease, doesn't settle in wrinkles. Work it in with a tapered fluffy brush and you're good to go. Do not set unless you're getting photographed (enough already with the baking trend). This is waterproof and peculiarly non-drying, so no setting needed. I use it as a shadow primer as well …Read more
