Conditioner - Oribe - Gold Lust Repair & Restore Conditioner

1.0
Created with Sketch.

30 days ago

Absolute waste of money. This is no better than any of the other Oribe conditioners I've used (Signature, Brilliance & Shine, Moisture & Control). It is good enough but does not at all merit the price tag. If you must use Oribe conditioners (and I really believe this brand is at its best when it comes to styling products, not shampoos and conditioners and certainly not skincare), buy …Read more

Contour - Charlotte Tilbury - The Hollywood Contour Duo

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/11/2017

While Charlotte Tilbury's contour wand is available in a 'Hollywood Contour Duo' set, the set would be more aptly named the 'Hollywood Contour & Highlight Duo' as the other tube in this set is simply a highlighter. Unlike the previous reviewer, I only bought the Hollywood Contour Wand, not the 'Duo', so this review will focus solely on that. The product …Read more

Lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Lips Matte Contour Liquid Lipstick

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2017

To preface this review, I want to emphasise that I've long been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury's lip products. I own about 30 of her bullet lipsticks; I love both the Matte Revolution and the K.I.S.S.I.N.G formulas, and I think that they're amongst the very best lipsticks on the market. I also own almost every shade of her Lip Cheat lip liners and have written a rave review of one of …Read more

Blush - Glossier - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/08/2017

This is Glossier's stand out product imo. In terms of the formula, it's a liquid that is more fluid than creamy. The packaging is utilitarian and cute but not ideal for dispensing product (too much tends to come out). You'll need to use a very gentle hand when squeezing if you're on the paler end of the spectrum. I have all four colours and they're all beautiful - I …Read more

Brows - SUQQU - Eyebrow Liquid Pen (NEW)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/02/2017

This review is slightly belated (I did a comparison post on the board when I first got this!). However, I'm glad I gave it some time before reviewing as I've come to like this new brow pen more and more. It may even displace ABH Brow Wiz as my lazy day (read: most days) brow product, which is very high praise! (FYI: I wear Granite or Ash Brown, when that shade is available, in …Read more

Lipstick - Hourglass Cosmetics - Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/22/2017

Usually I would wait longer before reviewing a new product but there's so much buzz about the Hourglass Confession lipsticks lipsticks, I figured jumping in early would be more helpful. I ordered three of these the day they were launched (yep, I live on the wild side when it comes to lipstick buying.) Read on for my in depth thoughts so far:

CONCEPT:
These lipsticks are …

Eye Shadow - Burberry - Eye Colour Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2017

As a big fan of Burberry's eyeshadow formulas (powders and pens), I had to give the Eye Color Creams a try. They are marketed as cream eyeshadows, however they are quite different from most cream eyeshadows I have used. I would summarise these as 'grown-up cream eyeshadows' because of their non-shimmery finish and easy to apply nature. My in depth thoughts below:

FORMULA …

Pressed Powders - Kevyn Aucoin - The Neo-Setting Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2017

I bought the Neo-Setting Powder from Beautylish when it was first released a couple months ago. I'm a big fan of Kevyn Aucoin - the man and the makeup line - and wanted to love this. My feelings on this product are extremely mixed so read on for my in depth thoughts:

CONCEPT:
First thing to get out of the way - this is NOT a setting powder. This is not even a finishing …

Lipstick - Burberry - Lip Velvet Matte Lipstick - Rosewood

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2017

Burberry's Lip Velvet formula is one of the few matte lipstick formulas on the market that I can wear comfortably (my lips are prone to dryness). These aren't true mattes btw. They actually have a demi-matte finish - not shiny but somewhere in between a matte and a satin. This makes them much more forgiving on your lips than a full on matte lipstick. I find that these type of formulas …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Unlisted Brand - Chikuhodo Makie Series MK-2 Powder Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/27/2017

This was my first Chikuhodo powder brush - it was between this one and the Z-1 or Z-9. Unsurprisingly, I now own them all (Chikuhodo brushes are HIGHLY addictive!) and so I'll try and provide a comparison between all three in this review.

Although the MK-2 was my first pick, I think it's probably the one I'd say I love the least. Keep in mind, this is highly relative and …
