Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express Cat Eyes Waterproof in feline black

I generally like Maybelline mascars, but I hated this one. Sure, it does make spread your lashes out and give it a fan-like (or cat-eye) appearance, but it does not hold up a curl at all. I get horrendous stick straight elephant trunk lashes. Moreover, it starts clumping and the formula dried out within the week.

Moisturizers - ORIGINS - VitaZing SPF 15 Energy-boosting moisturizer with Mangosteen

I've only used this a handful of times but I absolutely adore it. I like using foundation and getting a flawless finish, however I'm just too darn lazy. Generally, my skin's pretty clear except for some redness near my nose, and uneven skin tone. This product is extremely light coverage, but it does enough to give your skin a light glow. With some concealer in the right areas, it …Read more

Lip Treatments - KORRES Natural Products - Lip Butter - Wild Rose

I like this a lot as I'm a big fan of lip balms that hydrate and provide a nice hint of colour. The pigmentation on this is actually quite good. Obviously it's not going to be as pigmented as a lipstick, but it's easy enough to apply without a mirror. In the moisture department, my lips do feel hydrated while I wear it, but once the balm wears off they do dry up again. Though I do …Read more

Cleansers - ORIGINS - Checks and Balances

Sep/09/2012

When I went into Origins, the sales lady created a skincare regimen for my combination skin. Previously, I hadn't really been taking good care of my skin; a few manuka honey masks here and there, and moisturising with argan oil. However, when I started using this cleanser (along with Modern Friction) I have to say my skin has improved. It's not as flaky as it usually was, and feels …Read more

Toners - LUSH - Breath of Fresh Air

Sep/09/2012

I was always a bit weary of toners as many in the industry claim it's simply a marketing ploy. However, I do believe it really depends on the skin type. I only realised how important toner is for me now that I started using Breath of Fresh Air, and then stopped. My combination skin started drying out, and when I started using BFA again it felt so much more hydrated and smooth. I use it …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Stain Balm- Sweetheart

Sep/07/2012

I love love love these balm stains, I have 6 in total and this is definitely my favorite. This applies really smoothly, similar to lovesick but I find the purple undertones make it more difficult to wear. Sweetheart is just a beautiful, and wearable bright pink. The stain is also pretty good as opposed to shades like Rendezvous and Honey, fades evenly and does not settle into lip lines, which I …Read more

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

Sep/07/2012

I have been obsessed with these for such a long time! I sometimes find it hard to wear lipsticks on days where my lips are extra extra dry. This formula is moisturising, and fades evenly, does not settle into lip lines and has great pigmentation. They get a lot of rap for not packing a punch but shades like fuller fig, chunky cherry, two ton tomato and pudgy peony are amazingly pigmented! Great …Read more

Sep/07/2012

I love this! I suffer from dry lips and CLS (corpse lips syndrome) so I like something that is hydrating while giving a boost of colour. I have to say though, this isn't super moisturising, as in if I put it on at night by the morning my lips will still be dry. however, whilst I am wearing it my lips feel extremely soft. That may sound like it doesn't make sense, but I've never had …Read more

Hair Treatments - John Masters Organics - Deep Scalp Follicle Treatment & Volumizer for Thinning Hair

4.0

Sep/07/2012

Let me just preface this by saying, it's extremely pricey, especially for a student in London, but I honestly think it's worth it. I have really fine hair, aggravated by developing SD a few years ago, and this product really helps provide a bit of volume. I've only been using it a couple of months but my hair has been falling out a lot less and it has helped improve the condition …Read more

Sep/07/2012

Oh my, I had such high hopes for this. Let me just say I've suffered with a dry, flaky, itchy scalp for at least 4 years now. A couple of months ago I started using Giovanni Tea Tree Shampoo and my condition has improved by about 80%. The white patches on my skin have disappeared by quite a lot, and I only get about a few minutes worth of itching now and then. I put this mask on in the …Read more
