Hair Color - Wella - Color Charm Permanent Hair Color - 050 Cooling Violet

This product is brilliant! After colouring my hair dark brown I was left with orange toned roots - not a good look! I mixed some of this with 20% developer (I think 10% is best for this purpose but 20 was all I had) and applied it to my roots. Left it for 30 minutes and it toned my roots down to the same colour as the rest of my hair. What a relief! My hair didn't feel damaged afterwards …Read more

I really like this serum, it is the best vitamin C serum that I have tried so far (and I have tried quite a few).

I like to use a vitamin C serum during the day under sunscreen. However, most of the ones I have tried either break me out / irritate my skin or are insanely expensive. Although this serum isn't cheap, it isn't outrageously expensive either and it lasts for quite …

Mascara - Soap & Glory - Thick & Fast Mascara

Aug/01/2015

I really didn't like this mascara at all. I'd go as far as to say that it was one of the worst mascaras I have ever used.

I got this in one of Soap and Glory's Christmas gift sets. I didn't find it thickening or lengthening in the slightest and I found that it wore off really, really quickly. The brush is quite big and chunky (which normally I like) but I …

This mascara really surprised me. I bought it on a 3 for 2 offer and didn't expect great things. However, it has become my absolute favourite drugstore mascara (and I have tried quite a few!!).

It has two wands, a big wand that they suggest that you use for your upper lashes and a small wand for your lower lashes. I never put mascara on my lower lashes so I tend to use the big …

Lash Treatments - Revitalash Cosmetics - RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Growth Serum

Aug/01/2015

I absolutely love this product and it has completely lived up to its claims for me. I have dark, fairly average eyelashes, not extremely short but nowhere near as long as I would like either. I always needed to wear mascara and even then wouldn't be completely happy with my lashes. I tried Revitalash on a whim and didn't have particularly high expectations.

I apply this at …

I originally tried this product due to the many rave reviews I had seen online. I have mid-length brown coloured hair which is prone to tangles / frizz and I was excited to see what this product would do for it. The first time I tried it I was completely underwhelmed. It didn't seem to do anything for my hair at all. It wasn't bad (it didn't weigh my hair down or make it greasy) …Read more

Mascara - Avon - SuperShock MAX Mascara

May/23/2014

I wasn't keen on this mascara at all. I bought it because one of my colleagues is an Avon rep and I can never resist buying something each month (and a lot of their makeup is actually really good!),

Firstly I think the name is misleading. To me Supershock Max gives the impression that it is going to give big volumised lashes. I didn't find this at all, in fact it did very …

Blush - Dior - Rosy Glow Awakening Blush

Of all the blushes I have tried to date, this one is my favourite. I have reasonably pale skin (I sit somewhere between NC15 and NC20 in MAC) and pink blushes are by far the most flattering on me.

I have to say that this blush looks quite scary in the pan. It is a very bright pink but it does go on much more sheer than it looks. Dior claim that this blush adapts to your skin and gives …

I tried this concealer after watching a make up tutorial on youtube by Lisa Eldridge. When she said that it was one of her favourites I knew that I would talk myself into buying it!

Firstly I should say that I don't get on too well with undereye concealers. I have tried many that other people rave about (Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer, Estee Lauder Double Wear, Lancome Teint …

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - ESP - invisible zinc

I adore this product, it is hands down the best daily sunscreen I have ever tried.

I should start off by saying that I am a bit of a sunscreen freak. I have pale skin and quite a lot of moles so I am always looking for a product with a high SPF that I can wear daily. I have tried so many different sunscreens I have lost count. Most have either been too greasy / heavy or have not …
