Lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick

4.0

Jan/25/2018

I was surprised to read about people finding this drying- I guess everyone is different! I've got super problematic lips (mattes are pretty much a no-go for me in general and the amount of lip oil I buy is ridiculous) but I found this really comfortable to wear. I chose 'Birkin brown' in store which is a lovely brown/red colour- oddly it looks more brown online than it does on me …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/17/2017

I bought this on a whim in 'Vintage' because I love the colour and the matt cream didn't work for me. The colour is lovely, it has a nice finish but the lasting power (for me) is just not there. Like a lot of other people have said, it takes ages to dry and even then it transfers like crazy.
The inner part of my lips (or 'the lip butthole') is always a huge problem …

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Dec/12/2017

I have this as a lighter 'fresher' alternative to my Teint Miracle. I was told at the counter that it is water based and read the same online, so I've been using it as such. Please correct me if i'm wrong though, as I don't think that is officially stated by ES. It has a light, watery consistency and gives a buildable light coverage. Dewy but can be set to a kind of …Read more

I feel like i'm taking crazy pills- I absolutely *hated* this and I'm a very small portion of people with that opinion! Nothing has looked worse on my skin. I looked powdery and cakey using the foundation even with a hydrating primer.

I like my foundation to the dewy end generally and usually attempt to look at things objectively and say 'maybe this just isn't for …

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

3.0

Dec/12/2017

I decided to re-write an old review because I've changed my mind about this completely. I loved it when I first got it, then after wear, watching my undertones more and including a more dewy foundation I just can't get on with it.

The formula is quite nice. It is very creamy, incredibly easy to blend and isn't at all flat- it really does look radiant. I'd say for a …

Lips - Jeffree Star Cosmetics - Velour Liquid Lipstick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/12/2017

Like a lot of people on here I'm not into Jeffree Star as a person or entertainer, but boy does he have some bomb lipstick formulas. My lips are too dry for some liquid formulas even after a good scrub and balm, these are very lightweight and not to drying.

I do have slightly different experiences for two different shades though- I have both Designer Blood and Family Jewels …

Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Idole Ultra Liquid 24h Longwear SPF 15 Foundation

2.0

Dec/12/2017

I had such high hopes for this, but unfortunately it just didn't work out in the slightest for my skin. It clung to my dry patches *incredibly* badly and even on my normal skin areas it looked a little dry.
I'd class this as a medium-full coverage and it really does cover imperfections well, I couldn't see any red patches on my cheeks after using it. I found it build up quite …

Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/12/2017

This is a really lovely dewy foundation. It works well for my combo skin- I found it very kind to my dry/textured patches, something that is my main 'rule out' for foundations. Just about everything I try looks too textured on the brow area, but this actually makes it look slightly better than without any foundation at all. For oily areas it performed surprisingly well too. I use quite …Read more

Loose Powders - Boots - No7 Perfect Light Loose Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/12/2017

This is a real case of fab product, bad packaging. The powder is light, non drying but very good at stopping oils on my nose (I have some hellish combo skin- really dry brow and jaw but a reasonably oily nose). Leaves a really nice 'blurred' look to skin rather than an obvious 'powdered' look and it is very kind to textured area in my experience. Great product that can …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Sleek MakeUP - MakeUP Colour Corrector Palette

5.0

Dec/12/2017

I bought this last second because my dark circles were just *too* visible under my new foundation and I was 100% surprised at how amazing it was. All the Sleek products i've tried so far have been sort of average-good but this one is genuinely great. The colours are very pastel so I really don't know if people with darker skin tones will be able to use it well, but for fair skin …Read more
