Benefit “They’re Real!” Push Up Liner | Review

jodie / 21st August 2014

Apologies for the crap image: I actually gave this eyeliner away because I didn’t like it, so it wasn’t available for a photo shoot, unfortunately.  Actually, “Didn’t like it” is not quite a strong enough expression – I hate this. Hate it. It’s awful, and made me want to throw it out the window in a fit of rage.  I’ve…

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 | Review

jodie / 20th August 2014

I didn’t know much about the Bobbi Brown brand when I went to the counter in John Lewis for a little snoop around. I was really just killing time while waiting for a train, but ended up coming away with a powder foundation (which is lovely, by the way – I’ll review it soon) and a sample of the skin…

I Bloody Love Autumn

jodie / 19th August 2014

This is one of my favourite times of the year: end-of-August-almost-Autumn. I get so excited when the temperature drops and there’s a bite in the air, the leaves looking a little fragile and I debate with myself whether or not it’s socially acceptable to wear gloves and scarves yet.  I’m one of those people who loves Autumn/Winter fashion (cosy, cable…

Balance Me Moisture Rich Face Cream | Review

jodie / 18th August 2014

Oh, how I wanted to like this moisturiser. I love the ethos of the brand – the naturalness etc., – and I was looking for a new moisturiser (I still am), but this upset my skin a treat. It smells very natural and herbal, has a lovely thick consistency, and it’s quite a mattifying formulation, so I imagine it would…

NEW: Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne

jodie / 17th August 2014

I know I literally just reviewed a Jo Malone scent, but I really need to share this one with you ’cause it’s so shiny and new: yup, it’s the Wood Sage & Sea Salt cologne from the new range. I know it’s not out yet, but if you go into a Jo Malone store, you might be lucky enough to…

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne | Review

jodie / 14th August 2014

I think I may have found my signature scent… This actually smells like an enchanted woodland. I can’t stop jamming my nose up against my wrist to get as close to the scent as possible. It just smells so clean and natural – you know how traditional perfume just kinda smells like a bunch of chemicals mixed together to make…

Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion | Review

jodie / 11th August 2014

Apologies for the poor quality photo/mood lighting. This was taken at night under the light of a single candle. (Are you swooning yet? I bet you’re swooning.) Aveeno’s Skin Relief really is the shit. It’s my disgusting, scaly, reptilian face’s BFF, and I couldn’t live without it. Proper desert island product, this. If my skin is having a tantrum – be…

Benefit Brow Zing | Review

jodie / 8th August 2014

I should have realized at the tender age of 13, when I first started dying my hair an unflattering shade of dark brown, that I am, and always will be, severely lacking in the eyebrow department. Born with dark blonde hair, and with tiny, wispy little golden brown eyebrows, I should really have started penciling them in a lot sooner…

E.L.F. Mineral Infused Face Primer (Green – Colour Correcting)

Okay, this is one of E.L.F.’s primers, as mentioned in my NARS Sheer Glow review. It’s the green one, which is supposed to neutralize redness in the skin. This doesn’t’ feel like an expensive primer – because it’s not – but I love this stuff. I actually find it much better than Benefit’s The Porefessional (which is, like, 3x the price, and stings…
