Liquid - CHANEL - Perfection Lumiere Long-Wear Fluid Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/17/2017

The negative reviews on here astound me. Perfection Lumiere isn't meant to be a high coverage foundation - if anything it's very low coverage and only meant to even out skin tone - so all the comparisons to full coverage foundations like EL's double wear make zero sense. You should understand your skin type before blindly buying foundations. This is meant for combination skin, so …Read more

Shampoo - Redken - Hair Cleansing Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2017

If you use styling products and notice your hair is stiff, frizzy with greasy roots and dry ends but notice that your hair is always softer after a salon visit, you probably need this cleansing cream in your life. I don't care what other people say about cheaper substitutions from other brands, there is no substitute. Smells like orange sherbet candy.

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Aug/02/2017

Nothing topical will change how much sebum your skin produces. Products might help with the appearance of shine, but that's about it. That said, I had realistic expectations re. this product and have not been disappointed. Niacinamide has been shown to be at least as effective as clindamycin gel in the treatment of mild to moderate acne, assuming your acne is the inflammatory kind. Otherwise …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Reviva Labs - 5% Glycolic Acid Creme - Anti-Aging

5.0

Oct/17/2012

One of most effective creams I've used. I have oily, rough acne prone skin. This smoothed it out quite a bit and prevented new breakouts very effectively. Did I mention it's really cheap for the price too? It dries and mattifies the face, so those with dry skin may benefit from reviva's hyaluronic acid serum on top. Love this line, want to try their glycolic acid toner next. FYI I …Read more

Highlighters - CLINIQUE - Fresh Bloom AllOver Colour - Peony

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2012

This is an incredibly pretty product and sadly underrated. It's a gorgeous highlighter for your entire face and it's hard to "overdo". I really do hate that the product crumbles so easily though, and that makes it hard to travel with. Clinique's website regularly gives out a travel sized version with purchases (subscribe to their website and find out when) and honestly …Read more

Absolute rubbish. I use this to tightline only and it still manages to smudge under eyes within 2 hours. Also, the sharpener is a joke.

Rebought this 8 times! Love it that much. I have sensitive lips that flake and peel when I use certain lip balms, glosses or lipsticks. This one soothes my lips and gives it a very sheer wash of colour, can't be beat for the price! I have one in every handbag just so I never run out.

Shampoo - Rene Furterer - Naturia Shampoo

May/17/2012

Packaging is horrible and hard to fiddle with in the shower, but this shampoo is perfect for me otherwise. Lathers up well, smells fresh and even though my hair is on the dry side due to all the processing I put it through, still manages to detangle my hair even after back combing without the need for a conditioner. I'm prone to dandruff and seborrhea and it's funny but this has kept it …Read more

Masks - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Aspirin Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/17/2012

Tried it a few times previously, just plain aspirin with water. Itched like hell and flaked off causing me to sneeze. Did make skin smoother but way too dry (and I generally have oily skin). Recently a brainwave hit and I ground up the pills and mixed it with liquid glycerin instead, really helped with the dryness and also functions as a nice scrub. I use 4 aspirin tablets to a tablespoon of …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - De-Slick in a Tube Mattifying Gel [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2012

I got this product as a sample from sephora. After I used it a couple of times I went back and bought 2 tubes of the full sized version. This stuff is holy grail. Truly.

First of all, do not use it as a base. You could, I didn't find it made any difference to my face though. It will help if you don't usually wear make up and just use it to mattify your T-zone, but the magic …
