Number 4 Lumiere d’Hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect Review

NUMBER 4 LUMIERE D’HIVER SUPER COMB PREP & PROTECT
jodie / 8th November 2015

I’m not easily impressed by hair products, especially leave in ones, which often make my hair feel limp and greasy. Nobody wants that. Rarely does a leave-in conditioner scrape a 4 or a 5 out of 10, so even I am surprised to say that this has earned itself a solid 9. Back pats for you, Number 4 Lumiere d’Hiver Super…

Seventeen Doll’d Up Mascara Review

Seventeen Doll'd Up Mascara

Sometimes I purchase a product with little or no expectations and I’m blown away. It’s a lovely little surprise and usually makes day, if not my whole week. This was not one of those occasions. No, I had expectations for Seventeen Doll’d Up mascara. Somewhat high expectations, one might say, considering the kind of reviews its had on MakeupAlley (5 lippies…

Shiseido UV Protective Liquid Foundation SPF 30 Review

Shiseido uv Protection Foundation

Shiseido is a brand I’ve had exactly zero experience with until now. I could write the things I know about them as a company on the back of a stamp – they do sunscreen, they are Japanese, they have classy packaging. That’s about the extent of my knowledge on Shiseido (hell, I can barely spell the word). So, I know they have…

LUSH Lust Perfume

jodie / 25th March 2015

If LUSH’s Lust were a girl, she wouldn’t be the one sitting at the bar, peeking shyly from beneath her Bambi lashes at the dude across the room; she’d be a fiery redhead who’d saunter up to the guy she’s been eyeballing, grab him by the chest hair and growl in his ear “you’re coming home with me”.  It’s a jasmine grenade. The…

bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara | Review

jodie / 25th February 2015

  I’ve tried a lot of mascaras over the years, but I’ve only just heard of bareMinerals mascara. Who’dve thunk, eh? I’ve been sat on my arse thinking they just do foundations and other skin-based makeup and didn’t even think to check out their eye goodies. And I’m glad I did – this bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara has impressed the hell out of…

Stag Coffee, Cardiff | Review

jodie / 27th January 2015

A few months ago, I was so irked by a purchase of mine (the infamous Superdry Parka) that I was moved to write an angst-ridden piece about it on here. So infuriated was I with this purchase, I spewed forth my vitriol onto this blog, despite the fact that it primarily has a makeup/skincare focus. It brought me some relief, so here I go…

What to Look for in a Moisturiser

jodie / 7th January 2015

As your body’s largest organ, skin can be a complicated thing. That’s why it’s important to understand it and its needs – a little like painting the walls of your house. Use the wrong formula for, say, the bathroom or the outside, and the walls could end up cracking and peeling away…not a nice image when you apply that thought…
