Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

I can get either light or medium coverage from this - depending on how I apply. For an everyday look I dot sheer glow around my face & neck, and use my slightly damp beauty blender to blend in which makes this go on more sheer and slightly dewy. When I need more coverage and a more matte finish I apply with fingertips only. In either case this does slightly oxidize within the first hour or …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Gel Intenza Eyeliner - Pure Black

My new favorite eyeliner and as hard as I've tried to I cannot think of a single fault or negative to say about it. Firstly it's a very highly pigmented true black, even more pigmented than MAC's 'Blacktrack' which has been my go to eyeliner for years. The formula itself is rich and buttery, goes on amazingly well, dries straight away and lasts a solid 12 hours or longer …Read more

A gorgeous vibrant classic red (think London post boxes) that deepens ever so slightly as you wear it. Perfect for the festive season, in fact any time of the year or occasion, this always gets me lots of compliments. In fact I actually prefer this over 'Really Red' which was one of my all time fave reds up until I discovered this. I think it's the fact that it doesn't have …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Mascara

After a not-so-great experience with a Maybelline mascara, I decided (based upon numerous MUA reviews) that l'd give this a shot. Definitely a vast improvement on Maybelline! No clumping, adds length and volume whilst still looking natural. I don't use this as much as I used to, but on those days - or rather nights out when I want lots of definition, this is my go-to mascara. Almost …Read more

Moisturizers - LUSH - Enzymion Mattifying Fruit Moisturizer

Currently my favorite moisturizer. For oily-dehydrated skin it's hard finding a moisturizer that simultaneously helps to hydrate, yet controls oil AND has a secondary effect other than hydration - in this case brightening and skin smoothing benefits. Like all Lush products it's chock full of 'good stuff', in this case Papaya and Lemon, both of which are great at giving a …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional Face Primer

6 days ago

For many years my secret trick for disguising large pores was by cutting in half and completely drying out: a tube of Clinique's Pore Refining Solution in 'Instant Deep'. However as of the last 2 years, each time I've headed over to a Clinique counter I'm always told it's out of stock but not discontinued (out of stock for 2 years, everywhere, really?). I found that …Read more

Moisturizers - Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream

7 days ago

For dehydrated skin types this is actually not bad at all. As a person with oily/combination but dehydrated skin I can only use this during winter when central heating and cooler air outdoors ensures my skin is at its driest, and last winter I managed to go through a whole jar of this. It's a non-fragranced gel-cream texture moisturizer which is slightly on the heavy side but sinks in pretty …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Ameliorate - Transforming Body Lotion

Over in the UK this has been on so many 'best of' lists for the last few years and reviewed/raved about like nothing I've seen before! And for good reason...you can't readily find any AHA body lotions on the high street or in drugstores/pharmacies, well until this came along! Hence why it's become so popular over there.

It comes in 2 variations: perfumed and …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner

9 days ago

In my skincare regime I have to admit that toners generally are at the bottom of my list and I often forget or don't get the time to use one. But every so often I come across something in the world of toners which excites me and suddenly I'm motivated to use one properly and dedicate the time to fit it in. This time around it's PC's 'Weightless Advanced Repairing …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor

These come in 15 gorgeous HD shades, some very sheer and some highly pigmented (huge differences in pigment - be aware of this!). I got these in 3 shades: Rhubarb - 745, Coral - 740 and Desert - 710. All three were lightweight, non-sticky, yet very moisturizing - which was pretty much expected since they contain Hyaluronic Acid. The fragrance (supposed to be Vanilla/Mango but more like Caramel to …Read more
