  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer | Review

    I got this after reading tons of blogs in order to find a concealer which wouldn’t crease under my eyes or look powdery and caked on. The general consensus was that this concealer is the one of the best; it was a toss up between this and MAC Pro Longwear, but seeing as I was buying a bottle of NARS Sheer Glow at the same time, I thought it made sense to buy the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer to accompany it.

  • Battle of the Boxes: Brichbox vs. Glossybox

    This September I have received not one but TWO subscription boxes! Why? Well, I tried unsubscribing from Birchbox because I wasn’t very impressed with the products, and I guess I was too late and they’ve sent me (and billed me for, sadface) this month’s fares. OH WELL.

But we’ll get to that later…

  • Soap & Glory “Feel Good Factor Translucent BB Cream SPF25” | Review

    This is my go-to day moisturiser. If I’m leaving the house and it’s particularly sunny (or even sometimes when it’s not), chances are, I’ll be wearing this under my makeup. I’ve been quite loyal to this little tube for about 2 years now, because it just ticks all the right boxes for me. I’ve flirted with other moisturisers, even used some of them for quite a while, but I think I’ll always come back to this one.

    Here’s a few reasons why I love it…
