Density. Softness. Doesn't shed.

Stop the Makeup Meltdown - Makeup Setting Sprays

Makeup Setting Sprays
Hey dude!

When I first heard about makeup setting sprays I assumed they would ruin your makeup but it's quite the opposite. As a woman with oily/combo skin these sprays are a lifesaver (hyperbole obvs). I never knew how much these setting sprays would improve my makeup but they really do!


Sleek MakeUP Vintage Romance Palette Review and HD Swatches on Black Skin

Hello again!
Guess who's awake at a ridiculous hour and ready to do a new drugstore review :-D
This review is all about the beautiful, romantic, ultra pigmented Vintage Romance palette by Sleek MakeUP. I love Sleek MakeUP. They're one of my favourite drugstore brands. I bought this palette from Tesco (yes, Tesco, they're stepping up) and was sooo chuffed because I got it on offer for £4.99. BARGAIN! 12 beautiful, pigmented eyeshadows for less than 5 quid. That's a guilt free purchase if there ever was one.

Battle of the Drugstore Eyeliners Review and Swatches

Hi all!
I'm finally reviewing my little stash of drugstore eyeliners. Some of these I bought simply to review. Others because they were recommended. Thank you, Lavinia Ray :) This post was dreamed up after a bit of teasing over my love of highend products. I'm not loaded by any means, just FYI :) I gave in and decided to give drugstore eyeliners a proper try. I've only tried two drugstore eyeliners in my time. Two?! Yes, two. A Bourjois creamy kohl one that I love and a rubbish Collection 2000 liquid eyeliner that put me off drugstore liquid eyeliners forever. Until now.

RANT POST: Groupon Conned Me! Macadamia Deep Repair Hair Masque

Well, hello there.

This was going to be an awesome review of the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque. But guess what? I can't review it because Groupon sent me a fake product. How did a smart woman like me come to acquire a fake hair product? Grab some snacks and let me tell you a story.

The Ultimate Face Mask - Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

Howdy doodly, face mask lovers :)

Today's post is all about the amazing Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay.
I love face masks. They are one of my weaknesses. I honestly think you don't really need loads of face masks if you have this one but where would the fun be in that? This face mask is HARDCORE. I repeat, HARDCORE. It's not the kind of face mask you use when you want to lounge about in your white terrycloth robe and drink gin and tonics while watching Say Yes to the Dress. Nope. This is the kind of face mask where you wish you were sedated while it did its job.

Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette Review and HD Swatches on Black Skin

Hi, I'm back!
I bought the Urban Decay Vice 4 palette from Debenhams last year but I'm only just reviewing it now. Oops. I've been able to use some of the colours since purchasing it so I feel I can give a more well-rounded review now I've had it a while. It's still available online and just recently it was on offer at Debenhams for £30. It's normally £43! I didn't really think twice about the price but as one of my besties has repeatedly pointed out, that is a lot of money to spend on ''face paint'' :-D

Time for some swatches!
