Crème - Illamasqua - Cream foundation

4.0

Feb/21/2014

First of all, I got this foundation in the Illamasqua January sale for £4.50 so I can't complain too much! I certainly wouldn't have paid the full price of £23, especially as I totally winged it on the shade I purchased. You get 8g of product, which I personally feel is quite overpriced even though you don't need to use too much of it as it's a very high coverage foundation …Read more

Concealers - benefit Cosmetics - Fakeup

For the most part I really like this.

As with most Benefit products, the packaging is really cute, it's in a pretty silver lipstick-style tube. Here in the UK, it costs £18.50 for 16g of product which I think is quite overpriced.

It's really nice to use and does feel very moisturising and has a lovely balmy texture. However, because of this I find I have to apply …

Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte - Nude Beige #001

Mmmm, divine... Very expensive but hey we all need a little luxury lol. Not that it needs saying again, but the packaging is truly beautiful. I'll never tire of looking at this one and it feels great to apply!

As with all YSL products it's quite scented (fruity, melony) but it's not as obnoxious as the Rouge Pur Coutures which smell very strongly of rose. You don't …

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED Basics Eyeshadow Palette [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/15/2014

For the most part, I adore this palette. It's a must-have if you're a fan of neutrals!

I believe that the price has actually gone up since it was released, at least here in the UK... I may be imagining this though... I swear I paid £18 with a 10% discount (£2 off £20) but now it seems to be retailing at £22 everywhere here? Anyone else noticed this? I think the price is fair …

First of all I don't use this as eyeshadow, I use it as a brow filler. :) I have dark blonde hair and, teamed with Illamasqua's fabulous sealing gel, absolutely perfect to fill in my brows. Matches pretty much perfectly and stays on all day with no issues. Lovely buttery texture. Highly recommended for blondes!

Makeup Brushes - Sigma - F80 - FLAT KABUKI-BRUSH

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/21/2013

In a word, fantastic. Super dense, so applies foundation both quickly and evenly, but surprisingly dries fast too (a couple of hours on my towel-covered radiator). I achieve a flawless finish every time with this wonderful brush. It's possibly the softest thing I've ever touched in my life too - it's a pleasure to use. I find it needs cleaning fairly often as it is so dense, but it …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/21/2013

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who dislikes this as it's always raved about! First off, it's kind of expensive for a drugstore foundation (about £12.50 here in the UK). I wouldn't mind the price tag if it was good, but ugh.. no.
It smells pretty awful, like chemicals. Definitely not a great choice if you're sensitive to scents. It disappears after a while …

Moisturizers - The Body Shop - Vitamin E Moisture Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2013

The Body Shot Vitamin E Moisture Cream is a pink coloured, light cream with an almost gel consistency with a subtle scent that I don't find overpowering at all. It comes in a 50ml pot. Unfortunately I think The Body Shop have discontinued it because I can't find it on their website anymore, but I believe it cost about £10.

I'm surprised at the reviews for this. I …

Eyes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/04/2013

Ick! This would be a nice product if it weren't for the horrendous chunky glitter! I guess this is ELF's attempt at 'light diffusing'. I was expecting a subtle sheen, but the glitter is super chunky and very obvious. I really can't use this on my undereye area as it just looks silly. It's pretty much the same as ELF's standard HD powder so just use that instead …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Russian Navy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2012

Russian Navy is a gorgeous, very dark cool blue with subtle red and blue shimmer. The formula is nice, slightly streaky but definitely evens out completely after the second coat. At first I was a bit disappointed as it just looked like another navy polish, but the magic happens when the light hits it and you can see all the shimmers. It looks really beautiful! I'm keeping it as it is …Read more
