Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Angel Muse Eau de Parfum

A combination of herbal (Vetiver, Patchouli) and gourmand (nuts, cocoa powder, sugar) and a touch of spice. Nope it doesn't exactly sound like a winning combination but somehow this works...and very well may I add! Don't let that initial strong blast of Patchouli put you off as it quickly morphs into something very sweet and addictive, almost like a sophisticated Nutella spread, I …Read more

Concealers - Tarte Cosmetics - Shape Tape Contour Concealer

5.0

7 days ago

I use this under my eye area and also to conceal redness around the sides of my nose. In both areas I dab this on with a small concealer brush, rather than the oversized doe foot applicator that it comes with. Not only do I get much more controlled application exactly where needed, it also means I end up using less product - which can never be a bad thing! Once dotted on I use my damp beauty …Read more

Concealers - BECCA - Undereye Brightening Corrector

5.0

7 days ago

A fantastic corrector - now that I've discovered how NOT to use it! I purchased this last fall in 'Medium to Dark' - one of only 2 shades available in this corrector (the other is too light on me, this one is more orange-based). It has a creamy, very emollient texture which applies somewhat tacky. For better blendability it needs to be warmed up either between your fingertips or by …Read more

Eye Shadow - Charlotte Tilbury - Luxury Eyeshadow Palette - The Sophisticate

The most versatile and by far my favorite from all of CT's 11 Luxury Palettes (I've purchased or at least in-store swatched/tested each of them individually). The 4 neutral shades in here (Prime, Enhance, Pop and Smoke) complement whatever color I'm wearing and are the smoothest, most blendable, buttery mattes I've used in a very long time, the quality of these is just …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Cruella

5.0

A beautiful neutral-toned red that I'm loving right about now. I use this first to line my outer lip and then fill in - which it does effortlessly, as it's very pigmented. Gives a velvet matte finish and is buildable - if you want to increase the intensity you absolutely can, yet despite being matte it's not drying, if anything I find it nicely emollient (thanks to Vit E in the …Read more

Cleansers - CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

9 days ago

The perfect combination: a decent-foaming, non-stripping cleanser with 2% BHA (Salicylic Acid) in it to clear out pores and keep acne at bay. I love how this keeps my skin clear (I use it twice daily) whilst respecting my skins' PH balance. Even when I leave it on for a few minutes once per week to really let the BHA get to work, I still don't experience any tightness. The same cannot …Read more

Skincare - Face - Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream Mist

5.0

11 days ago

I'm in love with this! It is THE finest mist spray I've come across yet and by far the best ingredients (5 different ceramides alone) in a facial mist, from all the brands I've tried before. One of its main ingredients: Methylpropanediol sounds scary but is a fantastic alternative to Butylene or Propylene Glycol as an emollient, plus it's antimicrobial - probably why my skin …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - VICHY - Aqualia Thermal Awakening Eye Balm

13 days ago

I didn't quite notice an immediate difference (which the product claims to) but certainly did see a gradual difference - specifically to my undereye area which can often appear puffy and dehydrated. It took approximately 1 week of diligent AM/PM usage to notice this effect (about 50% improvement) and I'm curious to see the results as I keep using it. The texture of this balm is unlike …Read more

Lash Treatments - Revitalash Cosmetics - RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Growth Serum

4.0

13 days ago

I tried Revitalash last month after reading lots of good reviews and a few personal recommendations. What can I say...I'm impressed! Within a few weeks I noticed a slight increase in length, also my lashes appeared darker and fuller/healthier. I didn't notice any stinging unless incorrectly applying too close to the roots, or if I rubbed my eyes before the serum had a chance to dry …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Ole Henriksen - Banana Bright Eye Creme

14 days ago

What on earth has gone wrong with the new formulation? This used to be such an effective though pricey eye cream that actually brightened my eye area - gradually (2 types of Vit C) aswell as instantly via its subtle color-correcting pigments. It was never heavy or tacky, was a perfect primer before concealer/shadow and I did see some difference on fine lines. Now it causes itchy red hives …Read more
