I have not been chuffed like that with a makeup product for a very long time! This is absolutely BRILLIANT and it is dirt cheap.

I watched Violette applying it on Jen Atkin in one of her YT tutorials and it looked exactly like what I needed. A dark blue, slightly sparkly but not too much, liquid eyeliner that is easy to handle and STAYS PUT.

The colour 110 is very unique, a dark …

This face cream gave me red, cystic spots after the second night of using it.

I'm a notorious and avid user of heavy, oinctuous creams (hello Nivea classic and Weleda Skin Food!). Red, painful underskin bumps appeared after second use of this one and luckily I was able to identify the culprit pretty straight away - it was a product in a cute white and pale violet 15 ml mini jar …

I need a spritz of something pleasantly smelling in the morning on my face to fully wake up and this toner is a perfect solution. I'm really looking forward to my morning ritual with this product. 2-3 spritzes, then patting it in and applying a couple of drops of jojoba oil on a still slightly wet face and I can get on with my day.

I love the high quality glass bottle and a handy …

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Liquid Foundation

I've tried venturing into so called high street makeup and foundations these days (ok, let's not kid ourselves, I'm still buying lots of high end makeup but I like a cheap thrill sometimes!) because the new releases from high end brands (Dior, Clarins, YSL, Shiseido, EL) were a disaster so far in my search of a new foundation for autumn/winter. This one was on 3 for 2 offer in my …Read more

Blush - Milk Makeup - Lip + Cheek

3.0

21 days ago

It is a good cream blush (I have a mini version in Perk which is a delicate, peachy pink giving the most natural flush on my warm toned, olive complexion) but not the most durable one I tried. It spreads very well, almost too well as it can easily disappear to nothing. I don't like reapplying makeup during the day and sadly with this otherwise lovely product (the packaging is genius and a …Read more

This is such a lovely product from this innovative brand! All my favourite YTbers were using it and I was toying between this one and Chanel's one but as the winter is coming to UK and I will not be able to use much bronzing products for the next 6 months without looking out of place (I don't fake tan, too much faff!) I treated myself to a mini version of this one when in …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

This is not a bad foundation (I mean I tried worse!) but there is still scope for improvement...

NOTE: I'm reviewing the european version in a glass, pump bottle, after the product's been reformulated AGAIN in mid 2019. The European version has chemical sunscreen in spf17 but I never trust sunscreen in makeup so I would wear a layer of sunscreen underneath anyway. So bear in …

Is this just my impression or all the latest bases released from various brands are total fails? This is a new foundation offering from YSL beauty and it is so hyped up that I can even obtain a sample of it in Scotland - unheard of! I had previously enjoyed their Touche Eclat foundation that they reformulated twice and it went from relatively usable to bad and I never came back to purchase …Read more

If your skin has any hint of yellow/olive undertone stay away from this foundation. Also if you have any dehydration or dryness issues, this foundation will stick to your skin, skink in your pores in from of white speckle dots and will highlight any wrinkle like a mofo.

Colour selection of this product is another issue. All the light colours are basically pink. The one I was after was …

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Super Slim Eyeliner - Intense black

4.0

I have recently came back to using a black eyeliner and I was on a lookout for a not too expensive, reliable one with a sponge tip. L'Oreal used to do an absolutely genius one (it was a silver gold plastic screw on packaging and the product inside was brilliant but of course it was discontinued) so instead of going for my usual one of Clinique and Marc Jacobs (both are more glossy than this …Read more
