Lip Gloss - Estée Lauder - Pure Color Envy Sculpting Gloss

Mar/10/2016

Such a shame this gloss performs so badly longevity wise. I have to reapply after every drink and snack. And whoever thought up the design of the applicator needs to consider another career - probably the worst one I've ever come across as it's so hard it's useless. I've had to resort to 'dabbing' the gloss onto my lips. The colour range is great but the gloss …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Vicco Turmeric-WSO

Created with Sketch.

Mar/03/2016

I haven't been using this cream long enough to leave a proper review but in case of confusion the yellow version of VICCO - labelled WSO - is WITHOUT sandalwood oil. The orange tube is WITH sandalwood oil. I'm trying the orange one as sandalwood oil helps with fading scars and hyperpigmentation marks, of which I have both, in addition to hormonal cystic acne. My skin is also very …Read more

Lipstick - Bourjois - Rouge Edition 12 heures

I have Brun Cosmopolitan, a darkish brown. If you like browns and want a somewhat bold or vampy look, try this. It's not an everyday brown, the colour is a lot more special. It is fairly smooth and quite moisturising, sheerer than a cream texture but more opaque and lasting than a gloss. You need a liner and if you are prone to lipstick-bleed you will have to prime first and probably …Read more

Hair Color - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Pure Henna Powder Hair Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2016

Not a review as such, just some advice from a regular henna (and indigo) user. I am naturally dark-haired, approx. 25% grey and I'd finally decided to ditch the boxed hair dye. Having to do my roots every few weeks was proving too much for my poor hair after a 16-year habit. My advice is to start off mixing henna with just warm water and a little lemon or lime juice to help with the dye …Read more

Powder - benefit Cosmetics - Hello Flawless!

Jan/24/2016

Unusually heavy for an expensive range. I could not find a suitable colour for my NC25-30 skin (not even close and I'm not fussy about getting an exact match). It felt and looked like a much cheaper, basic powder. I tried it with liquid foundation and on it's own and it just doesn't work for me. For reference, I am oily/combination and slightly dehydrated but it settled into …Read more

Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Avocado Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2016

I bought cold pressed, organic avocado oil to temporarily replace my beloved rosehip and argan oils. Rosehip goes off fairly quickly and it's quite expensive and ultra-versatile argan isn't giving my finnicky, peri-menopausal skin the extra help it needs during the winter. My skin is acne-prone, combination, currently dehydrated and has become much more sensitive over the last few …Read more

My hair has become progressively wavier over the years, although my waves are still pathetically weak. This baby really helps me to keep them on days when I fancy a wavy look. It's not as harsh as salt spray, although I sometimes prefer a more matte look. Only a few sprays are needed as it's easy to use too much and end up looking like your hair needs a wash. I'm impressed.

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Liner

5.0

Sep/08/2015

A fine line, touchable after approx. 10 seconds and won't smudge after that. Nice, inky black. Will update my review once I've been using it a few weeks as I have oily lids, like to wing my eyeliner and will be wearing it mostly over eyeshadow, either or all of which might pose a problem. And if it dries out with the lid on tight I'll be damned if I'm repurchasing. UPDATE: …Read more

Shave Products - Schick - Quattro

Best disposable razors ever. I don't even mind that they're pink. They flex to fit your leg contours and I've never been cut using them, even on my knees. The downside is they're quite pricey and never seem to be discounted.

Mascara - Bourjois - Volumizer Mascara

Sep/03/2015

I only strayed from my beloved Bourjois 1001 Cils/Lashes because it suddenly doubled in price on Amazon. I should have stumped up the extra money and bought it regardless, because this Maximiser mascara just doesn't compare. The first step of this system makes the lashes look naturally defined but not dramatic. The second step is a challenge as the brush is so clogged - despite repeated …Read more
