Eye Shadow - GUERLAIN - 06 Les Fumes Quad

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/26/2014

I will start by saying that 10 years ago the only eyeshadow that I owned was a MaxFactor nude beige colour. Over the course of the last few years I have learnt application techniques (thanks YouTube people!!) and I have become moderately obsessed with eyeshadows. I now own over 200 eyeshadows, and at least 90% are high end.

Now, I will say that this quad is hands down MY FAVOURITE …

Mascara - CHANEL - Le Volume De Chanel Mascara

This mascara has become my new holy grail! I still absolutely love my previous holy grails (GA Eyes to Kill, Lancôme Definicils)... but this product takes mascara to a new level. One coat is enough to bring out the beauty of your eyes. However, layered with my favourite bases - Dior Lash Plumping Serum + Lancôme Definicils + Le Volume de Chanel = KILLER LASHES! Leaves you looking …Read more

Dec/03/2013

I say this to everyone I know, especially every male that is clueless about makeup: this is the perfect gift for a girl/woman that has everything. They are luxury in a tin. The tiny pearls look decadent in the unique packaging, and they make you feel special when you apply them. Call it a placebo effect, I don't care... but I love to use these all over the centre parts of my face, on top …Read more

Ladies, ladies, ladies (and perhaps gents), if you do not already own this foundation, why not? Okay, so I am a foundation fiend. But let me tell you what. I have never used this foundation on its own. The secret is to use this ON TOP of your favourite water-based foundation. That's right, apply your regular water-based foundation, your concealer, then as a finishing step, buff a SMALL …Read more

Eye Shadow - BECCA - Eye Colour - Suede

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2013

Okay, so this is an expensivish eye shadow, but the Becca range is amazing and so worth the money (especially if you like neutral looks). This colour (suede) is hands down THE BEST colour for smudging along the lower lash line. I use it every single day and my eyes look incomplete without this stuff. I own several Mac shades in the same depth/colour family but there is no other colour that …Read more

Eye Shadow - Max Factor - Earth Spirits - Almond

This is my HG wash colour, because it is EXACTLY the colour of my skin. So what's the point of applying it you ask? Because it creates a clean slate for other eyeshadows to be applied, without affecting their colour. Not sure how this colour would fair on other skintones as a wash but nonetheless this is a beautiful, truly neutral medium toned shadow with a silky application and finish. …Read more

Wow, so amazing on brown eyes! I have had this colour for a couple of years and had been too afraid to use it, thinking it was too warm and would make me look clownish. But boy was I surprised! The matte finish keeps it looking natural while the warmth really complements the skin. I use it in the crease on top of a very nude colour wash (I am really into the maxfactor single in almond). This …Read more

Eye Shadow - Too Faced - Lockdown Cream Shadow - Bondage

May/13/2012

I applied this yesterday morning and after 24 hours, my eye makeup looks exactly the same. I know, I shouldn't have slept with makeup on but I was exhausted last night! To be fair, the staying power of this product (I used it as a base for my eyeshadow) is immense. But so too is the ANNOYING glitter. What a shame, because the colour is perfect. A perfectly neutral champagne colour. But …Read more

May/08/2012

I have bought this pencil in every colour but the bold brown is my favourite. I stumbled across it while looking for a dupe for my HG (but incredibly expensive) YSL Dessin Du Regard waterproof pencil. May I say that I swatched the two pencils side by side on my hand and they looked EXACTLY the same. I asked a few people to tell me which one they thought was the expensive brand and which was …Read more

Eye Shadow - benefit Cosmetics - Creaseless Cream Shadow in Sippin' and Dippin

May/08/2012

I think this has been the worst eye product purchase for me. It just did not suit my colouring (medium neutral skin, brown eyes). It was way too light and the peachiness was the wrong tone for me. When the SA put it on my eyes, she darkened it by smudging eyeliner into it and so it looked half reasonable. When I tried it at home, it was just wrong. Not only that, I could not for the life of …Read more
