Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Eglips Lively Lip Matte

Yesterday

Love it. Hands down one of the best matte liquid lipsticks I've ever used, it is quick drying, lightweight, very matte, and budgeproof when set without being overly drying. That's not to say it feels moisturising but as far as matte lipsticks go it's quite comfortable. Like most matte lipsticks it works best on a well-prepped base - exfoliated and hydrated lips, otherwise it will …Read more

Eyes - Inglot Cosmetics - Duraline

One of the best cosmetics purchases I've ever made, I'd thoroughly recommend it even to people on a budget. I know, I know, it seems expensive for what it is and how much is in the bottle - £10 for 9ml excluding P&P - but hear me out. It's a silicone based product that acts as a waterproof sealant with whatever you use it with - once the volatile silicones have dried off it …Read more

Moisturizers - NIVEA - Urban Skin Detox Night Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Looked good on paper - a gel cream with green tea and liquorice plant extracts, alongside the widely-used humectants glycerin and hyaluronic acid. Nivea has released this as part of its new urban skin range, intended to counteract some of the deleterious effects pollution can have on the skin. It's claimed the antioxidants in this are largely responsible for that, isoquercitin and …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

3.0

Quite nice, especially on a budget. Don't let the colour put you off, it goes on very sheer with a slight tint effect, natural enough even for school. Top of the ingredients list are sunflower oil, beeswax, coconut oil, castor oil, lanolin, and pomegranate oil - all commonly used in cosmetics as moisturising ingredients. I think the relatively high content of beeswax and coconut oil in this …Read more

Lips - peripera - Ink Velvet

Just getting it out there first, if you aren't blessed with lips that never get dry or flaky, you're going to need to use a lip scrub and a decent lip balm 20mins before applying. Otherwise this will cling to every tiny bit of dead skin, it's not an on-the-go kind of product. It won't apply well over a thick layer of balm either, so that's why I put on lip balm beforehand …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - XXL Volume Big & Bouncy Dry Shampoo

2.0

What's the difference between this and the original one? It behaves like a cross between dry shampoo and hairspray. It does stop hair from looking too greasy, but goes too far the other way and makes it very matte. I think the volume claims come from the fact that it has a degree of hold, meaning once brushed up and out it keeps the shape to a certain extent. I don't like using this on …Read more

Looks unassuming, but packs a punch! I'm prone to seborrhoeic dermatitis, dandruff, and in hot humid summer weather, pityriasis versicolor as well. This has the same active antifungal ingredient as the brand Head & Shoulders standard shampoos, pyrithione zinc. I used to use H&S shampoo and its generic own-brand store mimics as a body wash in the shower, but almost always would end up …Read more

I'm not a lipgloss person - I don't know what it is about my lip shape, but it takes a lot of effort and tactical use of lipliners and lipstains to get ultra shiny lip products to look alright on me. Plus, I've got fine hair, if someone even breathes in my direction with too much force my hair flies everywhere and will just end up stuck on sticky lips. Let's not talk about if …Read more

Lipstick - peripera - Airy Ink Velvet Lip Tint

So, let's start with the elephant in the room, the lasting power. If you're looking for a longwearing lip tint, this ain't it. It's not too bad if you don't eat or drink anything, but if you do then it does start to come off. On me it usually needs reapplying after 3-4 hours or so.

On the flipside, this is true to its name - it isn't overly drying, feels …

Concealers - Unlisted Brand - the SAEM - Cover Perfection Tip Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

Now I see why there's so many people raving about this! It may look like your average drugstore liquid concealer in its nondescript tube, but the formula itself is far from average. It's very pigmented, on the level of Vichy's Dermablend foundation, and looks and feels equally creamy on the skin. It dries off as it sets, forming a thin layer of a filmy gel-like smudge resistant …Read more
