  • Dr. Jart+ Regenerating Beauty Balm

    I bought this after I decided I needed a lighter foundation for summer, with more sun protection. This does the job perfectly, with a sheer, but buildable coverage, that adjusts to my skin tone beautifully.  From the Boots website, here’s what we know about it: “Suncream to help protect the skin. Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil […]

  • 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.

  • Micellar Waters: Garnier vs L’Oreal

    Thanks to my ultra-sensitive skin, I’ve always struggled to find a makeup remover that’s both gentle and effective.

  • Estee Lauder Pure Colour Blush in “Peach Passion Shimmer” | Review

    I got this as part of a free gift when buying some other stuff from Estee Lauder. How cool is the packaging? It looks awesome in my makeup bag. And it’s such a lovely little blush. It’s the perfect shade for all year round – a lovely, slightly coraly pink, which is warm enough for summer skin, but pink enough for winter when I’m rocking the pale and interesting look. It’s pretty pigmented, so you only need a light hand, but it’s not as pigmented as some other blushes (NARS, I’m looking at you), so you don’t need to worry about it being hard to blend if you put a little too much on your brush. No sign of clown cheeks here!

  • NARS Blush in Gina | Review

    I feel that Orgasm gets so much hype and fanfare it overshadows all the other wonderful colours NARS has in its blush range. By all means, if you’re looking to try out NARS blushers and don’t know what colour will suit you, Orgasm is a great all-rounder and is pretty universal in terms of suitability, […]
