Please help me find a foundation!

August 11, 2013 § 16 Comments

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend!

Today, rather than telling you about products, I really need you to help me out. I’m looking for a foundation that will give medium to full coverage, and I don’t want to have to buy too many that don’t work. I’ve already tried Bourjois Flower Perfection foundation (with and without primer) and it doesn’t seem to last very well on me at all (review coming soon!) – after only a few hours at work it doesn’t seem to be giving me any coverage at all, and it’s sticking to dry bits I didn’t even know were there!

In October, my friend and I are going to London’s MCM ComicCon (!!!!!) and I need a pretty good foundation that will last me more or less all day, with minimal touch-ups. Can you recommend one? And do you have any tips on making foundation last and last?

Thanks everyone! 😀

Review: Maybelline Super Stay 14hr Lipstick in “Stay With Me Coral (430)”

May 28, 2013 § 4 Comments


Okay so I admit it… I might be becoming slightly obsessed with lipstick. It’s quite a new thing to me (I’ve only really begun to use lip products aside from balm in the last couple of months) but now I’ve managed to figure out how it works I love it. Recently I’ve become really attracted to the idea of wearing brighter lipsticks; up until Tuesday I’ve only owned a couple of nudes and natural-esque pinks that I’ve worn much. I wanted a lovely coral-y pink to bring myself into the world of brighter colours and make my lips stand out some more. This lipstick caught my eye because it was the exact colour I’d had in mind, and boy am I glad I picked it up! It is stunning. « Read the rest of this entry »

Review: Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lip Tint + Balm

May 19, 2013 § 8 Comments


Recently I’ve been trying to find some nice lip products that I can wear during the day but still give an interesting pop of colour to my lips, and after remembering that I had previously bought and tried Rimmel’s 1000 Kisses Lip Tint and quite liked it, I decided to go for it again. My last tube has vanished somewhere into the great beyond, so I went for a colour that I thought would be a nice bright(ish) pink but still suitable for daytime wear. I don’t know if they have perhaps changed the formula since I last bought it, but I was extremely disappointed. « Read the rest of this entry »

New Makeup Storage!

While I was poking around in the “stuff” room at my parents’ house (you know the room – it’s full of spare duvets and things that should have been thrown out 20 years ago) I found this really nice little acrylic makeup holder.

Mascara Wars Round 2: 17 “Falsifeye” vs Rimmel “Scandaleyes”

mascara - vs2

Since a couple of people commented on my comparison of Benefit “They’re Real!” and 17 “Falsifeye saying that it was helpful and they had actually changed their mind about re-buying They’re Real!, I thought I’d do another comparison with Falsifeye and Scandaleyes. « Read the rest of this entry »
