Sunscreen - It's Skin - 2pm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2018

My HG face sunscreen! Considering the texture (creamy, much thicker than the usual watery ones I go for), I didn't think it would work with my skin (oily, enlarged pores, sometimes dehydrated depending on the season). This gives the feeling of a moisturiser on the skin (even though I do use normal moisturiser too) but my makeup sits so well on top of it that it actually performs better than …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Red Roses

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/07/2018

My first Jo Malone fragrance and still my favourite to this day! I love how simplistic but sophisticated Jo Malone scents are - on me, this smells like fresh red roses with a burst of sweet lychee. The silage is surprisingly long lasting and I always get compliments when I wear this. Non-offensive but vibrant, perfect for everyday wear.

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/07/2018

Quite an average mascara to be honest. I've always loved the idea of 'tube' mascaras but unfortunately, the prime end doesn't work particularly well with the coloured end. My two main gripes is that the white primer erases any hard work I've put in with my lash curlers and then once dry and the black side is applied, it turns my lashes grey and even the lightest swipe of …Read more

Foundations - NARS Cosmetics - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/07/2018

The first time I used this I really didn't like it - it was so thick and even with a primer underneath and using a damp beauty blender, I turned into an oil slick within 2 hours! However, I've now discovered how I like to use it and now it's an everyday staple.

It sounds like an odd thing to say especially for a foundation that is on the pricier end of the spectrum but …

Primer/ Corrector - LANEIGE - Cushion Concealer SPF 30

5.0

Jul/18/2015

My favourite concealer to date! I purchased this about a month and a half ago while overseas (I bought a ton of Korean beauty products so if you're interested in that, check my reviews on MUA as I will review once I've tried each product for a few weeks!) and I haven't stopped using it since.

It's the perfect creaminess - dry enough to go on red and angry spots but …

Scrubs - Too Cool For School - McGirly Rice Scrub

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/09/2015

Housed in a slim tube, this exfoliator is made for sensitive skin in mind.

Far from the harsh abrasiveness of other scrubs (St Ives, I'm looking at you), this scrub is formulated using the oil absorbing properties of rice and very fine granules to gently slough away dead skin and other impurities.

For some, I know that it is not exfoliating enough. For me however, who …

Treatments (Face) - Too Cool For School - Pumpkin Sleeping Pack

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/09/2015

My first foray into the world of sleeping packs is a positive one!

This sleeping pack is mostly for hydration and for refining the skin texture. Designed to be applied before bed and as a last step in your skincare routine, I liberally apply this on my face and then go to sleep. When I wake up, my skin is much softer and hydrated and it's not oily at all despite being in the …

Foundations - IOPE - IOPE AIR CUSHION XP SFP50+/PA+++

4.0

Mar/09/2015

Not being one for following trends, I finally decided to get an air cushion foundation after hearing about bloggers rave about it forever and where better to start than with the brand that started the craze?

For those who don't know, air cushions are marketed as being the BB Cream 2.0 except more lightweight and with a more innovative way of application (mainly being the liquid …

Masks - The Face Shop - Essential mask sheet - CO-Q10

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2015

I agree with the author below in terms of this sheet mask fitting slightly awkwardly on the face. The features on the sheet mask are too wide (and i by no means have small facial features that are set close together) to fit comfortably without going into my hairline. I also found that the sheet masks were a little too wet - the essence was dripping down onto my neck so i had to dab at it with a …Read more

Blush - MILANI - Baked Blush - Luminoso

Jan/09/2015

This product absolutely lives up to the hype and my blush collection will never be the same without as. As others have said, it's a gorgeous peach coral colour with shimmer and yet it doesn't look overtly shiny or glittery on the face, It's so pretty and luminous and perfect for spring and summer.

The only gripe that I have about this product is the packaging - make it …
