Concealers - Kevyn Aucoin - The Sensual Skin Enhancer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/03/2014

For reference I am a MAC NW22. I use Kevyn Aucoin SSE in SX07, which is pretty much perfect if a tiny bit too dark. My skin is normal to dry and needs good coverage as I have hereditary redness and I'm prone to burst capillaries.

The first thing I want to mention is that it's number one ingredient is mineral oil - we know how cheap that is to make - so the price of this feels …

Mascara - CHANEL - Le Volume De Chanel Mascara

5.0

Aug/02/2013

The BEST mascara I have ever tried, and I've tried a lot. This goes on really clean and on me does not clump at all, instantly volumises the lashes, and with 2 coats they just look the best they ever have. So pleased with it. Expensive but worth it for me.

This is an unfragranced mascara.

Hair Treatments - L'anza - Keratin Healing Oil Treatment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2013

I have used a number of higher end hair oils over the last few years, and tried this one out last Christmas. It has quickly become my all-time favourite for the following reasons!

- the smell: probably one of the best smells of anything I've ever ever smelled!!! It is truly beautiful, luxurious and clean smelling.

- consistency: light but still viscous, it applies …

Jun/27/2013

Having received a small sample of the Keratin Healing Oil Treatment, and falling in love with it (rating it higher than MoroccanOil, Kerastase Elixir Ultime etc), I decided to purchase the L'Anza Keratin Healing Oil Shampoo & Conditioner. The packaging is long and sleek, shimmery brown with gold detailing and very luxurious looking.

The conditioner is super thick, feeling more …

Shampoo - Redken - All Soft Shampoo

5.0

Jun/27/2013

I use this in conjunction with the Redken All Soft Conditioner and I absolutely love the results.

I have fine hair, so I normally turn to volumising shampoos and conditioners and have tried various high-end volumising ranges from Pureology, Kerastase, Shu Uemura and Joico to name a few, but having heard good things about All Soft I decided to go against my volumising habit and try this …

Cleansers - RMK - Cleansing Balm

5.0

Jun/25/2013

I have tried a number of balm cleansers, from Emma Hardie's infamous Moringa cleansing balm to the newer Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm. I received a sample of the RMK Cleansing Balm in a beauty box, and fell in love with it so much I've repurchased it twice now.

This is quite firm when in the pot, but quickly melts into your hands and sinks in to the skin beautifully …

Conditioner - L'Oreal Paris - Elvive Nutri-Gloss Light Conditioner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/21/2013

For reference: my hair is very long, fine, oily at roots and dry at ends.

I am more than willing to admit that I am a major hair care snob and normally stick to higher-end, salon brands when it comes to hair products. I recently had to take an unexpected trip away for a weekend and had to pick up some shampoo/conditioner at Boots (UK drugstore) to tide me over. I ended up buying the …
