An absolutely beautiful colour for blue eyes. Easy to apply and lasts all day with no fading or creasing. Super cheap and is quite similar to some urban decay eyeshadows but without the fallout. I love this colour. I love how good it looks and I love what a bargain it is. I will totally repurchase this. I wore it today and fielded several comments on how blue my eyes were and how nice my eyes …Read more

Cleansers - Pixi - Pixi Mud Cleanser

Created with Sketch.

Dec/14/2015

Having recently been converted to Pixi glow tonic and loving it I discovered that they have started to sell the entire Pixi range in Marks and Spencer Glasgow. It really was a hard decision to make on what to buy first but as I use Clinique TTDO balm cleanser I was looking for a second cleanser. The mud cleanser comes in a tube so more hygienic than a tub and has the same green and gold packaging …Read more

I gave in to all the hype and fanfare surrounding pixi glow tonic and had read so many reviews raving about how it had dramatically changed skin tone that i made an online purchase of this. It is not available in Scotland and was charged four pounds for the postage which I did grudge a bit and it took over a week to arrive. I hope they start selling it in more places soon. Aside from these minor …Read more

Palettes - Laura Mercier - Daring by Day

Oct/08/2015

After being underwhelmed by the watercolour palette I spotted the Daring by Day palette online. Usually, all the Laura Mercier palettes are sold out the minute they hit Frasers so was very pleased to make this purchase. I like the packaging, leopard print, shiny, it is a smart looking palette. Six eye colours, a blusher and a highlighter. The eye colours were made with me in mind, vanilla nuts …Read more

Palettes - Laura Mercier - Watercolor Mist Eye and Cheek Palette

Oct/06/2015

A beautiful looking palette with some gorgeous colours which aren't nudes. The standout from this palette for me was the pink blusher which suits my very fair skin. The palette may have some lovely shades and look pretty out on display but it doesn't work as a useable palette. I have tried to wear the eye colours several times and they are barely noticeable on my skin. The darkest shade …Read more

Sep/28/2015

Once upon a time I spent a ridiculous amount at lush but then I had children. Fast forward a few years and I wandered in to buy bath ballistics for the wee one when I spotted this toner. I thought it would be gentle enough to remove any oily residue left over from my cleansing oils or butters and I liked the scent and the non- spill packaging. I like being able to spritz toner over my face. It …Read more

Powder - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup

Jun/29/2015

I bought this in bone which is the lightest colour available in the UK although I am shell in the liquid version. The liquid version I wore for years happily but as I have got older and my skin has dried out it has not been as successful at covering my skin. The skin on my cheeks is drier and heavy liquid foundation just coagulates there and brings the dryness to everyone's attention. I …Read more

I find Laura Mercier products very dependable. Good colours, staying power and great palettes. On holiday I recently bought Guerlain's les meteorites in the duty free. I had heard great reviews but it is not for me. Too glittery, lovely Parma violet scent, beautiful packaging but ultimately a fail for me. I suspect it is breaking me out and I don't want an obvious glittery look on my …Read more

Toners - La Roche-Posay - Serozinc

Apr/19/2015

Having read lots about serozinc on various blogs and how it was good for oily and spot prone skin I was keen to try it but it isn't sold in Scotland. Whilst in France on holiday I went into lots of pharmacies which are Aladdin's caves of goodies and basically bought lots of serozinc for 5 euros. Now my skin had a reaction to that rodial vampire blood stuff which i knew as soon as I put …Read more

Fragrances - Lancôme - Poeme

Feb/06/2015

This scent is strong and is either a love it or hate it one but I really adore it. You need to ensure that you don't over spray as one spray is usually sufficient and it has good longevity. I can smell this on myself all day and have had several comments on how nice it is. Others have said it is a retro scent as it definitely is not a sugary sweet fragrance so favoured at the moment. It …Read more
