Some Quick and Easy Halloween Makeup Looks

jodie / 31st October 2014

After a browse through my phone, I’ve discovered a few snaps of costume makeup I’ve done in the past. Two of them are simple enough to do with whatever makeup you have lying around, one not so much. Black Swan This is ridiculously easy to do. Just apply some white face paint to your face, perhaps mixed with a little…

Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette| Review

jodie / 31st October 2014

I was so shocked when the sales assistant at Urban Decay told me this was just £22, I probably peed a little. Not really of course, because that’s disgusting and it’s a figure of speech, but you understand. Generally, I’d grimace a little at paying £22 for one makeup product (though there are some I’d willingly pay that price for),…

Vaseline Vs. Papaya Gold Paw Paw Moisturising Balm

jodie / 30th October 2014

Ah, Vaseline. Sluggy saviour of parched skin; constant companion, present in every bag I own, where would I be without you? My dry cheeks cry for your soothing touch, and my cracked lips crave your moisture sealing greasiness. Who could ever replace you? Why, no one… …oh wait, hang on. There’s a new kid on the block and his name…

jodie / 29th October 2014

Ever had a skin care product you love so much it becomes your Holy Grail? Your staple, your desert island product – something you genuinely believe you couldn’t live without? Well, I recently discovered mine was breaking me out. I can barely contain my grief. I recently found the cause of my disgusting chin whiteheads was my by beloved Aveeno…

Clinique Different Lipstick | Review

jodie / 28th October 2014

This lipstick has recently had a makeover, with new packaging that’s very pretty and metallic. I have the old version, which is a very clinical looking (and very Clinique) mint-green. I think it’s rather pretty, even if it does evoke mental images of NHS nurses in their scrubs… Clinique’s Different Lipstick normally retails for about £17.50, but I bought this…

5 Autumn/Winter Fragrances

jodie / 24th October 2014

I have a bit of a penchant for buying too much perfume. It’s getting to be quite a problem, really. I won’t spend excessively on that dress I’ve been eying up, but I’ll smell something a little bit beautiful and go “I must have it now!“, my reasoning behind actually buying it being that “it’s an investment – it’ll last…

How to Treat Spots and Blemishes

jodie / 23rd October 2014

I’ve never been one to struggle with spots. During my teens I was fortunate enough not to suffer from acne; my skin teetered on the fence, sometimes swaying towards normal, sometimes dry, but always sensitive. Which is why, as a 22 year old, it confused the shit out of my when my chin suddenly erupted in whiteheads, blackheads and who-knows-what-else.…

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish | Review

jodie / 22nd October 2014

You know the dilemma you face when you need a new cleanser, but haven’t shaken up your routine in so long you don’t really know what the best option is? That was me about 3 months ago. After doing a whole lot of research on cleansers, I decided to try out the famous Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish hot cloth cleanser. Praised…

Asda Nail Varnish is Surprisingly Good!

jodie / 21st October 2014

I’m not a massive nail varnish person, but I love this stuff! I’ve tried a few brands, including some of the more high-end ones like Nails Inc. and Butter London, but why pay upwards of £7 for nail varnish that chips and requires more than 2 coats to look perfect? This varnish cost me £3, looks great with 1 coat,…
