Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette

With the skew of eyeshadow palette reviews on this blog, it’s no secret that I love an Urban Decay palette. I really like the concepts they have behind them and their eyeshadow formula is reliably good. One of their newer releases – The Born to Run palette – didn’t immediately catch my eye. Sure, it’s interesting in that it’s got a shade selection that marks … Continue reading Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette

L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Detox Mask

The L’Oréal Pure Clay range has been around for a while but is something I’ve never tried. Why, I have no idea as one mask pot will only cost you around £5. Not bad at all. I also love L’Oréal’s concept of multi-masking, i.e. applying a mask with a different benefit to certain parts of your face depending on what your skin in that area … Continue reading L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Detox Mask

If I could only pick one brand to sum up the beauty world in 2018, it would be Huda Beauty. The brand was created way back in 2011 when Huda Kattan launched her beautiful lash range, but it was last year when it truly blew up. It was everywhere, surrounded in both success and controversy.

The Beautyblender was undoubtedly a pioneer of the new trend, created in the early 2000’s but really bursting on … Continue reading Sponges: Beautyblender vs Real Techniques

The Best Nail Top Coat Ever: Seche Vite

Throw out any nail polish top coat you have, this is the only one you need. Seche Vite is unlike any other top coat I have ever used and the only one that I continue to use to this day. It was created in 1991 and was, according to their website, the “first patented single procedure non-yellowing dry fast top coat”. Firstly, it dries quickly. … Continue reading The Best Nail Top Coat Ever: Seche Vite

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealers

There has been hype around these Makeup Revolution concealers for a while now. If you haven’t heard about them, where have you been!? I was a little late to join the bandwagon, only picking up my first of these a couple of months ago. Since then I’ve developed a sort of love-hate relationship with them and they fall in and out of my makeup bag … Continue reading Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealers
