I really like this, another bargain discovery in TK Maxx for £3, I have it in light and really like the pen/brush design which I feel is hygienic. It's mega easy to blend, not the highest coverage in the world but decent enough and its moisturising so doesn't crease badly. I think it's best for under eye & nose to almost conceal/highlight. It doesn't seem to compete with …Read more

I have this in warm/medium 3W. It doesn't wow me. It's good packaging because I like concealer that applies on a spatula rather than finger/brush. But I find it hard to blend because it moves too much as opposed to sinking into the skin. Now I do have some lines around my eyes and this does crease, possibly because it dries hard & fast and think a concealer with more slip & …Read more

Purchased this is 220, the warmest shade I could find which turned out to be way too dark so purchased 110 to balance it out. Disaster. Shading aside I don't like it. To me it's mega powdery in its finish not good coverage and a horror to blend. I'm not a fan of drugstore foundation I think they work best on younger skin types but in my age category show up every imperfection …Read more

I stumbled upon this in TK Maxx for £3 in color 80 watts, I believe it's the deepest shade and I use it as a bronzer on my nc25-30 skin tone. It's a beautiful tan, rich but with the right balance of yellow and brown in it so it doesn't run orange in color. It isn't overwhelmingly illuminating and glides on like a dream. Benefit Hoola is a cooler lighter shade for comparison …Read more

I started using this after seeing a girl use it on YouTube to shower in! She said she washed her face with it too. And that was it, I was sold. So I use baby oil to cleanse face & baby shampoo to wash it and use the shampoo to shower in or as bubble bath. Oh and to clean make up brushes. I had an ex boyfriend who use it to wash his hair! Amazing, cheap, won't break you out or irritate …Read more

Early this year I used this by accident as I ran out of my normal cleanser. I've never looked back. It removes any heavyweight foundation EL DW, Mac Pro longwear etc, waterproof mascara, cleans make up brushes and I put a little in my bath to soften the water. It lasts ages, doesn't irritate your eyes or skin & is non drying. I use baby shampoo to wash my face. A match made in …Read more

Nov/19/2016

I loved this when I first purchased for on £3 at TK Maxx. I knew nothing of the great reviews it had, just thought it looked like a good brush for foundation. And it was but with 2 major draw backs for me. No. 1, it absorbs too much product. Because it has quite deep/long bristles when I used it with EL DW it produced a flawless finish but got through the Foundation 2 to 3 times as quickly than …Read more

Okay. There's a lot of divided opinion on this and it took me a month & 2 samples before I bought it in NC30 (winter shade). For reference I am NC30 in original Pro longwear (summer only), EL DW Dawn 2w1, or Rattan 2w2, Mac Matchmaster 2 (mix with 3 in summer), L'Oréal true match in w3 or w4 for summer, can get away with Studio fix fluid in nw25 as nc25 is too yellow/light, studio …Read more

For the uninitiated, MAC paints are not the same as MAC paint pots. Paints are in tubes. This was a happy accident for me. I went to MAC asking for MAC Bamboo eyeshadow & was presented with MAC Bamboon paint?! Now, i was like ????? but the MUA swatched it in my hand & i was sold. Almost a neutral/warm, taupe/brown with a shimmer (the more you pack on the more shimmer/metallic you get but …Read more

The HG of bronzers. My story. Looked online & this was highly recommended. Really, surely a bronzer is just a bronzer. Went to Boots, asked MUA on benefit if she could try it on me. A few dabs & bit of blending, then a mirror.......WOW. I saw cheekbones i didn't know existed. No orange, just a lovely almost chocolaty matte finish. She used the 3 technique & i was sold. I am the …Read more
