Review: Bourjois’ Little Round Pot Cream Blush in “02: Healthy Glow”

July 25, 2013 § Leave a comment

IMG_0271 Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I wrote a review for anything but I’m back with an incredible product! I’ve started using BB Cream most days, and while it really evens out my skin tone, it can sometimes leave me looking a bit flat. Step in the blusher! And after I realised that I really actually like wearing blush, this little pot from Bourjois caught my eye. When I saw it in a Boots 3 for 2 promotion, I had to have it! « Read the rest of this entry »

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

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

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 »

Mascara Wars: Benefit “They’re Real!” vs 17 “Falsifeye”

mascara - vs

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 »

Review: Rimmel “Lasting Finish by Kate” (colour 08)

Here we have one of my makeup bag essentials!

I didn’t used to be much of a fan of lipstick, but after buying this one, I’m in love! I’ve been slowly falling in love with Rimmel’s products for a while now. They’re really good quality and last well, but at around half the price of a lot of other brands, I feel a lot of Rimmel products are way better value for money. After about 20 minutes of dithering in the shop, I decided to go for it and get this pink shade. « Read the rest of this entry »
