I was really surprised by this product. Full disclosure: I didn't have to pay for it as my mother gave it to me, but regardless I may actually purchase this myself once the product is finished.

I have quite oily skin and dust a bit of MAC Prep and Prime powder on my skin after moisturising, before applying my foundation. I use MAC Pro Longwear and Estee Lauder Double Wear & …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Jun/02/2015

EDIT: After using this foundation for 3 months, I've noticed that it's now not perfecting my skin the way it used to! I've noticed that it doesn't last all day on my face and I'm getting oilier than I used to (without changing my skincare regime at all). The transfer of this foundation is ridiculous - all the collars of my jackets are heavily stained as the faintest …Read more

I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation - if only it did what it claims to do and stay matte!

This stuff applies like a dream, blends really well and I was so impressed when I first put it on! It gave me that "my skin but better" look, I could apply a second layer to cover my dark pigmentation and acne scars and it still looked really natural. It felt amazing on my skin …

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Coppertone

May/21/2015

I was searching for a matte blush that would give me a really natural flush of colour on my cheeks. All investigations led me to MAC Coppertone.

I am about NC44-45, and I wear Bobbi Brown Golden Honey everyday. For some reason I can not get this blush to show up nicely on my cheeks! I have to put so many layers on, to the point where it no longer looks natural or blends well. I …

Bronzers - Bobbi Brown - Bronzing Powder

This is a fantastic bronzer!

I wear Bobbi Brown Honey/Warm Honey (and in summer, Golden Honey in the foundation stick) and I'm NC43/44 in Mac. The Deep shade in this bronzer gives me a beautiful, healthy glow. At first I was confused as it looked reddish in the pan, like a raisin, blush shade, but on my skin it just looks so good!

One lippie off for the chunky compact …

Lipstick - REVLON - Ultra HD Lipstick - all

Apr/13/2015

I was referred to this lipstick range from the Revlon MUA who said this was a replacement for my beloved lip butters.

Firstly, I love how this lippie feels on application - super smooth, moisturising, quite heavenly! However, that's the only real pro about this range. I found the texture of the lipstick is soft (therefore can bleed easily) and there's a very noticeable …

Pressed Powders - BH Cosmetics - Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder

4.0

Mar/30/2015

I purchased this powder after rumours that it rivals MAC Studio Fix powder, which is sadly untrue, however this is still a good powder.

It provides light to medium coverage, but unless you already have perfect skin, this powder won't substitute for foundation, and doesn't have the coverage of Studio Fix powder.

I wear this over my foundation and find it wonderful …

Stick - Bobbi Brown - Skin Foundation Stick

Jun/02/2014

This foundation is perfect for the busy mum on the go, who wants to wear foundation but doesn't want to look too made up. A few swipes of the Skin Foundation Stick on my face and a quick blend with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, and I'm done! It blends really easily and quickly and the finish is so lovely. It's enough coverage to soft my dark acne scars but I still feel …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Gilda

A gorgeous shade on my darker skin - I wear NARS Syracuse, Bobbi Brown Honey or MAC NC43-44. This coraly shade really gives me a light flush of colour and suits my skin tone without being too unnatural. It looks different on lighter, whiter girls but I love the way it looks on me!

I'm not a fan of NARS's chunky packaging and wish their compacts were sleeker, and of course I …

May/11/2014

I really really want to love this concealer, but I'm still not quite convinced! After a MUA applied it to combat my very dark under eye circles, I couldn't believe how flawless it was! It really concealed my dark circles and scars and it honestly didn't look like I had anything on. It lasted all day without a single crease and looked just as good as when it was first applied. …Read more
