Pressed Powders - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Powder - Dim Light

Jul/28/2016

I don't really use powders much these days as I get older because I find they can accentuate any dryness and make fine lines look worse, however when I need to use one I now actually use this as a face power not as a highlighter. It's glowy without being shimmery or sparkly. It adds a very nice sheen to your skin instead of the dead flat matte look. I am NW20-NW25 an find the colour …Read more

Moisturizers - Avene - Hydrance Optimale Legere (Light Hydrating Cream)

Jul/28/2016

I have gone through numerous tubes of this moisturiser and it is definitely my HG day cream. If you have normal to combination skin this moisturiser will be fab for you all year round, however if you are more dehydrated or dry then it might work better for you in the hotter months.

It is quite lightweight but still hydrating without being greasy. It has a slightly mattifying effect …

Mascara - Australis - Killer Curves

Created with Sketch.

Jul/28/2016

This used to be my HG mascara for years and I would buy 5 tubes at a time when Priceline or BigW had their 40% off sales, HOWEVER, the last 2 tubes I have had the formula has been different. This mascara never used to flake and now it flakes pretty much straight after it dries. All day I have flakes coming down and getting under and into my eyes. It has caused me so much irritation! At first I …Read more

Brows - MAC Cosmetics - Eyebrows Crayon in Spiked

5.0

Jul/28/2016

I have gone through about 4 of these and will continue to purchase! The pencil is so fine and is perfect for creating natural looking strokes with depositing the perfect amount of product. It isn't too soft but isn't too firm, making filling in you brows very precise. The colour is perfect. Spiked is a fantastic dark brown that doesn't throw red and has a slightly ashy tone to it …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

Jul/28/2016

Absolutely love this formula compared to the original Pro Longwear foundation. This is so much easier to blend and sits much nicer on my skin! The colour range in this foundation is a bit off - I would normally be an NW20 in winter however I found that far too pale in this range so have changed to NW25.

I find it lasts all day which not many foundations out there can do on me. The …

I have used tonnes of different blushes over the years coming from all sorts of high-end brands (MAC, Tarte, Chanel, Nars, Stila etc.) and I am yet to come across a better formula and product as this! I am down to my last little bit of this and will need to repurchase soon, something I have never done for any other blush before! Hands down my HG powder blush.

The formula brushes on …

Lip Gloss - Stila - Lip glaze

2.0

Overall this lip gloss is very average. It is very sheer and hasn't got much colour which is ok sometimes but it is also very sticky and my hair tends to get caught in it! I find it doesn't last very long either, it runs out so quickly! The packaging sucks too, it leaks into the lid and wastes extra product. Won't purchase again as it is too expensive for what you get.

This mask makes your hair feel absolutely luxurious. You can def tell the difference between before and after. It has hardly and scent which is a bit of a shame because it's nice to have your hair smelling pretty, but what really annoys me about this wonder mask is the stupid packaging! I hate masks in tubs, they are such a pain to use when in the shower, because you have to use your wet …Read more

I love this spray, it really detangles my knotty hair and leaves it feeling silky and healthy. The smell is great, reminds me of a tropical island! It is very reasonably priced and comes with this funny shaped cap to protect it when travelling. I'm on to my 3rd bottle.

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Thickening Spray

Jul/19/2009

I do not like this spray. It does it's job by making my fine hair a bit fuller and hold more volume but it dries the hell out of it making it coarse and frizzy and straw like. I also noticed that it faded my hair colour a lot, i usually get my hair coloured ever 6 weeks or so but this makes it fade a lot quicker. It leaves a sticky feeling and my hair does not feel smooth like it usually …Read more
