Upon recommendation from a friend, I decided to try this for myself. The consultant matched me to porcelain which worried me as I am an NC 20 by MAC. She assured me it "warms up" (oxidises?), and she was right, however it is still a touch too light on me if I wear it on its own in natural light.

Pros are it provides decent coverage and is a fairly neutral shade. It leaves a …

Highlighters - Soap & Glory - Glow All Out Super Luminizing Highlighting Powder

5.0

Jul/17/2016

My holy grail of highlighters!

Finely milled giving a nicely diffused glow without a hint of glitter. An exact dupe of Gorgeous Cosmetics Prism Highlighter but a fraction of the price. The power has a coral tone to it though it doesn't leave any obvious colour on my skin.

Perfect for both day and night. The lack of glitter or sparkle makes this very work friendly. It …

I have been using this brand for 6 years now. I have naturally medium golden brown hair which has started to go grey at an alarming rate in my early 30s!

I have used various shades all with different results.

Shade Dark Brown gave me a very rich, dark brown colour. The pros are that each time I've dyed my hair this colour I am left with a very rich colour that …

LOVE this eyeshadow quad!
Four very versatile neutral shades which are quite flattering for most skin tones.
The colour combination can be used in several different ways and I love that there are two matte colours - Pink T and Vanilla.

I use this eyeshadow palette pretty much every day for work. I tend to do a simple smokey eye or a wash of pink over the lid and do winged …

A deliciously luxurious mask with a lovely subtle botanical smell with great results.

When I first bought the mask I was taken back by how "coarse" it is - it contains a fair few chunks of seaweed etc. The second thing was how aromatic the mask is. Neither of these things are a bad thing at all! The chunky texture of the mask provides are soft exfoliation as it is washed …

Context - I use a MAC NC-20 foundation colour. Dark golden brown hair and hazel eyes.

In a nutshell - my lips but better.

I have been a fan of Loreal Silk/Sepia for a long time but this is becoming a new favourite.


Beautiful creamy formula - not too drying. It is quite pigmented and I made the mistake of putting it over dry lips - every single flake stood …

A bit of context - 32 years old who matches up well to MAC NC-20.

I did not like this blush AT ALL!

I was pretty disappointed as I've been looking for a decent NARS Orgasm dupe and had read loads of great things about this blush. In comparison it is far too orangey/red based compared to Orgasm which is more pinker in tone - presumable to recreate that flushed dewy …

Context - I'm equivalent to a MAC NC 20 with dry to normal skin.

In a nutshell - my skin in a bottle. I've just reviewed it's drugstore dupe but in all honesty, this is the real deal.

I LOVE sheer brilliance. Shade 2N (Neutral) is my skin in a bottle. The smell is lovely, and the foundation is very light weight so I can't feel it at all. Goes on …

Aug/18/2015

Context - I'm a fair-medium (NC 20) with dry-normal skin.

I've been on the hunt for a foundation that dupes Gorgeous Cosmetics Sheer Brilliance foundation - it is literally MY SKIN in a bottle. Due to having relocated overseas I've been struggling to justify the cost of buying it, so I've been hoarding my bottles for very special ocassions. Ever since I've …
