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! 😀

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 »

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 »

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 »

The other day I bought Elle Magazine and it came with a free sample of Benefit’s They’re Real! mascara. I was super excited because I’ve heard a lot of people being really enthusiastic about They’re Real! and I’ve been really wanting to try it, but I can’t really justify spending £19.50 on a mascara I don’t know if I’ll like. I decided to compare it to my current favourite mascara; 17’s Falsifeye which has a much more affordable price tag of £6.49. « Read the rest of this entry »

I’ll introduce some really basic products and how to use them, and also do a tutorial on how to get the look I’ve done on myself in the title picture. Every product I use in this guide is good quality, affordable and easy to get the hang of! « Read the rest of this entry »
