Mascara - Collection - Supersize fat lash mascara

5.0

Oct/12/2017

This mascara claims to "Supersize your lashes! Super volumising mascara for big bold lashes". I wouldn't say this mascara supersizes my lashes but it does add a good amount of volume while leaving them nicely defined. It also adds a decent amount of length and curl as well, which is nice considering that it doesn't say anything about lengthening or curling on the tube. The …Read more

Conditioner - Hask - Charcoal with Citrus Oil Purifying Conditioner

Oct/12/2017

This is great. It seems to really intensively moisturise my hair yet it feels quite light. The only issue I have with it is that it contains silicone. Not an issue in itself, but the matching shampoo is sulfate free and I find that sulfate free shampoos aren't the best at removing the silicone from the previous wash/condtioning so this can lead to build up. So once a fortnight I use an SLS …Read more

Shampoo - Hask - Charcoal with Citrus Oil Purifying Shampoo

Oct/12/2017

I got this as sulfate shampoos really irritate my scalp. Leaves my hair and scalp feeling really clean but not dried out. I recently dyed my hair with a semi permanent colour and it seems to be pretty colour safe. It smells nice too.

I use the matching conditioner with it which does contain silicones. So once a fortnight I do use a sulfate containing baby shampoo to remove any build …

Mascara - essence - All Eyes On Me - Multi-Effect Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2017

I have the waterproof version of this. It claims to be a "multi effect mascara which gives extra volume, length, curl, thickness and separation". It only really does one of those things, and it thickens lashes by being ridiculously clumpy with just one light coat of the stuff. It also smears badly after it's applied and flakes quite badly after a few hours. The brush is much too …Read more

Blush - Seventeen Cosmetics - Cheek Stamp in Blushin'

1.0

Jun/08/2017

I bought this because the shade was the only cool toned pale pink blush I could find on my local high street (everything else is too muddy looking).
Initially I thought it was great as it's so easy to use-just stamp on the cheek and blend with a brush. But after a couple of months use the sponge applicator started to smell disgusting- almost fishy. And I can smell it when I apply it to …

Sunscreen - Hawaiian Tropic - Silk Hydration FACE oil-free sunscreen SPF30

Apr/09/2017

I use this as my daily moisturiser. It's really improved my skin the past few weeks I've been using it. My skin has never looked this good!
It's very hydrating (the 12 hour claim is definitely true for me) but leaves a non greasy finish. It's easy to apply as it's not too thick.

The first few days I used it I felt a slight tingling for a couple of hours …

This was part of a velvet manicure set (mink cashmere) I found in Poundland. Textured manicures aren't really my thing but I wanted this lovely nail polish. It's light grey colour with a touch of beige- a much more flattering shade than normal pale greys on me. It's a tiny bit streaky after 2 coats but thankfully the colour doesn't look garish when I apply 3. It dries …Read more

Mascara - W7 - Eyelust

5.0

Feb/24/2017

My new favourite mascara. It lengthens but doesn't clump at all, giving you really defined, natural looking pretty lashes.

The brush is rather big and i always end up with mascara on my eye lids. It's not too messy if you're careful though. It's also easy to remove.

I like the chunky packaging as it's very easy to handle and the bright coral colour …
