Treatments (Face) - REN Clean Skincare - Bio Retinoid Anti-Aging Concentrate

I have been using this every other night for two months and have found it to be a better performing alternative to the Sunday Riley Luna oil. I wake up to smoother and brighter skin and my pores look much smaller. It's not at all greasy and doesn't break me out either. I saw very minor results with the SR oil and it's nearly twice the price of this bottle from Ren.

Fragrances - TOM FORD - Noir Pour Femme

This fragrance starts off with a huge chocolate note that made me think this would be a sickly sweet gourmand. But the scent of chocolate soon disappears and you're left with a beautiful, smoky vanilla and amber fragrance that's just a little bit spicy. I love this but won't be purchasing it as the dry down smells too similar to Diptyque Volutes, a fragrance I already own.

I've only owned this fragrance for a day but it's already in my top 10. It starts off smelling of ginger/spices mixed with pumpkin but this is nothing like a Yankee candle. As it dries down the spiciness remains but there's a warm citrus note as well as faint florals. After a couple hours of wear it's still spicy, a little bit musky and oh so divine. This will be a staple in …Read more

I'm on my second bottle of this. I tend to use it in the morning before I apply makeup as I like the tight and smooth effect it gives my skin. It's also helped keep some pesky spots at bay. Using it every other day I haven't experienced any dryness or irritation so overall I'm happy with this product. I just hate the bottle which has leaked several times on me.

Eye Shadow - Zoeva - Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette

I have about 20 eyeshadow palettes but this is the only one I've been reaching for since I got it a month ago. It's everything you could want from an eyeshadow palette. You get 10 colors that are a mix of mattes and shimmers, all very pigmented and easy to blend. They last a full 12 hours on my oily lids too, provided there's a primer on underneath. And there's very little …Read more

I'm currently using a rollerball of this fragrance but I'm about ready to drop £135 on a full bottle, that's how much I love this. It's a soft, musky and powdery rose that feels very youthful and pretty. The lasting power is hard to determine as sometimes I think the scent has faded from my skin but then I'll catch a whiff of it. I'm a great lover of rose fragrances …Read more

I've seen more results from this eye cream than any other I've tried to far. It's very moisturizing but not greasy and I love the slight tightening effect I can feel immediately after application. I think it's helped a bit with my fine lines after a month of use. My eyes just look more bright and awake now, although my dark circles are still an issue. It's not a miracle …Read more

Only recently have I started incorporating a setting spray into my makeup routine, and I'm quite happy with this one. I have very oily skin but this seems to keep my makeup looking fresh for at least 6 hours and I find that I don't need to blot as often. At this price, I would repurchase.

Treatments (Face) - Sunday Riley - Luna Sleeping Night Oil

Jul/28/2015

I've been using this nightly for 6 weeks so I feel I'm now in a position to write a good review. Starting with the positives, this hasn't irritated my skin or made me break out at all. But I don't think it has helped with my pore size or pigmentation issues, the two reasons why I purchased this. It does seem to make my skin a bit more glowy, but for £85 I need a lot more than …Read more

Palettes - IT Cosmetics - Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eyeshadow Palette

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/28/2015

Out of all my eyeshadow palettes, I reach for this one the least. Which is a shame because it's my only all-matte palette, but the quality of the shadows is so poor. I find them to be very dry and difficult to blend. And the pigmentation can be quite sheer unless you really pack them on. Love the shades and the ability to turn them shimmery, but the quality is frustrating.
