Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2012

This little gem has given me the confidence to strip back my daily makeup routine to the bare basics - mineral foundation, blush and highlighter. That's how good it makes you look. I only use the tiniest amount, literally just a light dab of the brush on each cheek. It's a beautiful light gold sheen that goes perfectly with my NC30 skin. I tried some on my mum who has far yellower skin …Read more

Powder - Silk Naturals - Mineral Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2012

I don't know why it took so long to discover this, but I'm never using anything else from now on! Compared to previous powder (not mineral) foundations I've used (mostly MAC) which have been powdery and looked obviously like I was wearing makeup, the Silk Naturals foundation looks absolutely flawless and natural. It looks like my own skin!

Now, I have fairly good skin to …

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - Lip Care - Repair

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2012

This is my HG lip balm. You could say I'm a bit of a lip balm junkie, because my lips are constantly dry and chapped, and I'm forever searching for that perfect balm that has lasting power and moisturises well enough. I have tried so many brands but Nivea Repair and Protect has to be the best one I've used. It stays on for a long time, doesn't tempt me to lick it off with any …Read more

Eye Shadow - Australis - Eyeshadow

5.0

Nov/05/2008

I love love love Australis eyeshadows! The colour palette combinations complement perfectly, and it's inexpensive to boot. They're pigmented and have a slight shimmer that creates a soft glow, they stay on forever if I use primer first, and are so easily blendable.

My only complaint is the packaging, which looks and is cheap and broke within a week, and definitely don't …

Tinted Moisturizer - NIVEA - Visage Young Be Beautiful Tinted Moisturiser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2008

EDIT: After trying a few other more expensive TMs I realised that this is actually not good at all. It doesn't improve complexion, but just makes it look made up. I won't be repurchasing this.

This tinted moisturiser is horrible on its own. When I first tried it, I ended up with a streaky, muddy brown face, and it felt so heavy on my skin that it was stifling.

A …

Mascara - Lancôme - Definicils Pro High Definition Curved Brush Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2008

This definitely added volume and length to my lashes - but it also made them horribly spidery and weighed them down! I didn't have any problems the first time I used it and I thought it was wonderful, it made my lashes gorgeous, black and long. However, after using it a couple more times it started to clump, and made my lashes stick together. I wouldn't buy this again for that price …Read more

Mascara - Avon - Daring Curves Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2008

EDIT: I'm on my third tube of this now, and I've noticed that this time round it lengthens and curls my lashes noticeably. Unfortunately it also clumps a little bit sometimes too. However, for the price I'll definitely keep buying this.

The one thing I like about this mascara that no other mascara I've used has been able to do, is that it gives a natural looking …

Bronzers - Too Faced - Beach Bunny Bronzer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2008

I originally tried the Sun Bunny bronzer, and it was too dark for my skin so I swapped it for this one, the next shade lighter. I absolutely love it! I apply it very very lightly all over my face first, then build up the colour on the cheeks, forehead and chin. It creates a perfect sunkissed look, not too tanned or orange, just perfectly bronzed. There is a noticable shimmer in it, but when you …Read more
