Skincare - Face - Kate Somerville - Eradikate Acne Spot Treatment

4.0

Feb/20/2016

This product does not work miracles, and it isn't without its problems, however it is still the best spot treatment I have tried (including prescription only products prescribed to me by dermatologists). The most important thing to me is that it reduces breakouts WITHOUT stinging/burning like crazy and drying the hell out of all the surrounding skin on my face...seriously, I think the …Read more

Ok seriously...this stuff makes absolutely zero difference to the appearance of my skin, and also it made me break out. Thank god I got a sample and didn't spend any $$ on it.

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

3.0

Apr/17/2014

I really like the unusual brush and the way it distributes mascara over the lashes. If I curl my lashes first, this gives me a lovely wide-eyed look, with really long, defined, super black lashes. That said, the mascara itself has a tendency towards clumping, so you need to be careful and precise when applying.

I don't think I'll repurchase it, and what seals the deal for me …

Self Tanners - ModelCo - Tan Mousse

5.0

Mar/04/2013

I'm normally not a ModelCo fan AT ALL but I just had to get on here and spread my love for this tanner.

It's a gradual tanner (develops over about 12 hours) with a hint of instant bronzer. It develops into a really nice deep, natural golden brown. It's pretty easy to apply (I just used my hands and it was fine, might get a slightly better result with using the …

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Trace Gold

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/08/2013

This is not a colour I ever would have picked out for myself. Being pale, I've always been scared of bronze/gold tones that I thought would look harsh, orange-y or otherwise 'fake' on my skin. Thank god for the MAC MUA who convinced me to try trace gold! The colour is so flattering, it really warms up my face and brings out my eyes. Not orange, harsh or unnatural looking in the …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Lipstick - Dolce Vita

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/24/2012

For me, Nars Dolce Vita isn't anything special, but it's still a decent, safe lipstick to keep in your handbag for everyday use. I have very fair skin and prefer a soft, natural look for my 9-5 makeup, but nude/pale lipsticks always wash me out. DV warms up my complexion beautifully without looking too bright on my pale skin. It's also probably my only lipstick I apply straight …Read more

Cleansers - Eve Lom - Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/22/2012

I was freaked out by the negative reviews I saw on here, especially as I have very sensitive skin and have had disastrous results in the past (redness, rashes, irritation) with products that have turned out to be both insanely overhyped and overpriced.. BUT, I'm very relieved to say, this cleanser has worked fantastically for me (I've been using it for about 8 weeks now). My skin has …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - CLINIQUE - Deep Comfort Body Butter

3.0

Mar/21/2012

This is too expensive for what it is. It's a nice body butter, absorbs well and isn't greasy. I didn't really find it that moisturising though. (I do have crazy dry skin though, so I'm sure it would be fine for people who don't need harcore moisture). It's a pretty standard product, nothing special...I don't think the hefty price tag is justified.

Styling Products - Paul Mitchell - Extra Body Daily Boost

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/15/2012

Loooove this spray! It's not remotely crunchy/sticky feeling, unlike every other volumising/boosting hairspray I've tried. In fact, I can't feel it in my hair at all. You only need a very small amount to get a natural lift at the roots and some thickness. (...and if natural isn't what you're after, use a little more and this will definitely will do the job ;) The only …Read more

Eye Primer - NYX Professional Makeup - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/29/2012

This is a great eyeshadow primer!!! I don't have much experience with eyelid primers so don't have a whole lot to compare this too, but it does everything I want. I apply a tiny amount with the sponge tip directly to the eyelid, then use my fingertip to spread and pat it across my eyelid, up to the browbone. It dries to a slightly tacky finish in seconds. I then apply my eyeshadow and …Read more
