Liquid - Kevyn Aucoin - The Sensual Skin Fluid Foundation

I don't use it in the traditional way, having discovered that it works perfectly for me as an under eye concealer.
My dark circles, inherited from my parents, have always been shocking to behold. My Mother is from Ireland, my Dad is English, my skin is pale and I don't tan easily though I can build a golden tan if it's slow and steady.
I've tried so many concealers …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Snowberry Intensive Renewal Face Serum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I have been using 'Buffet' as a serum for the last twelve months, prior to that I used the original Snowberry. I changed to the Intensive Serum because there was a local special, a good discount and I used a rewards voucher too. I think it's better than 'Buffet' and the Snowberry eye cream is the best I've used too.
I stay out of the sun and always wear good …

Cleansers - ELEMIS - Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser

I bought this for $20 USD on S/Net. I would buy it again at that price. Maybe there's a sucker born every minute but I would swear it makes my dry Irish skin feel smoother. I subscribe to the warm steamy facecloth routine and I simply adore the fragrance. Just lovely.

Moisturizers - Thursday Plantation - Tea Tree Face Cream

I got angular chelitis (marionette lines that are angry looking) and it was a devil of a thing to get rid of even with the meds from the doctor. In the end two very inexpensive products fixed the problem. One was Nivea Lip Balm, the rose one in a lipstick and the other was TP cream. The reason it works, aside from the Oil,is the bentonite clay in the blend, it dries residual moisture on the skin …Read more

Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

4.0

9 months ago

I bought this because Lisa Eldridge is on record (video clips) as saying Healthy Mix is almost undetectable under magnification. That's how I have found it, the product surpassing Nars, Estee, Arden and others. The only other that matched it was YSL at four times the price. I have grown used to the herbal scent and I have total confidence in the product producing the no make up-makeup look …Read more

Lip Liners - essence - Soft Contouring Lip Liner

My daughter thinks they're great, so something has happened to quality control, because mine is so dry I can't drag it across my bottom lip without a disfiguring movement of the mouth. To the bin.

For some reason I keep thinking of the original Magie Noire when i wear this. i've grown to like Legere very much, for a retro appeal, for the oak moss, as I don't own anything else like it. I'm going to back this one up.

May/14/2018

I bought it at an incredible price. I read the Non Blonde's review of it while it was winging its way to me. I washed it, blotted and caressed it. I dried it on a window sill with a rubber band compressed around the middle. Obsessive? Maybe. It does lose dye in the wash, it does lose a lot of hairs during the first few uses. It isn't as soft as some others, but this morning when I went …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Shalimar Souffle de Parfum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2018

The area in which I live got a Mecca recently. I had the opportunity to test several Frederic Maille's that had eluded me in the past.
It was food for thought. I'm not comparing a perfume like 'Parfum du Therese' to Souffle directly but sometimes a classic perfume doesn't need to do much to be desirable (its reputation precedes it) while a new one faces intense …

Bronzers - CHANEL - Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base

4.0

Jan/24/2018

Being of Scottish descent with short arms and long pockets I like a bargain, but sometimes bargains can masquerade as luxe and this is the case here. Chanel Soleil Tan is a full 30 grams, goes on in a buildable way where you call the shots and has a lovely sheen for all but the ivory skinned populace. I saw an article by the lovely Camille Goutal some years ago and was influenced enough to buy …Read more
