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

Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Palette

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. I’ve been gazing lovingly at the New Nude palette since … Continue reading Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Palette

Sponges: Beautyblender vs Real Techniques

Base application is no longer the unquestionable realm of brushes. Sponges are just as – if not more – of a popular choice these days. But these aren’t just your £1 for 6 sponges from Boots; the new breed of makeup sponges are something else altogether. 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

bareMinerals BarePro Liquid Foundation

I am incredibly fickle when it comes to foundation. Sure, I have a few favourites that I know will always be fail safe options – Urban Decay All Nighter, ELF Flawless Finish and Two Faced Born This Way to name a few – but I can just as easily chop and change with little second thought. My most recent foundation find could be another matter … Continue reading bareMinerals BarePro Liquid Foundation

ELF Flawless Finish foundation

In the continued hunt to find my holy grail foundation I picked up this ‘Flawless Finish’ foundation from ELF. The brand has only just started appearing in the UK, and I couldn’t contain my excitement when I saw it in my local Superdrug – of course I had to get something! As this is their bestselling foundation, it seemed like a good place to start! … Continue reading ELF Flawless Finish foundation

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette

Having heard the words ‘Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette’ all over the internet, from YouTube to blogs, I finally relented and bought one. Although it didn’t hurt that the colours also looked beautiful! Packaging First off, the packaging is really pretty. It actually does kind of remind me of a chocolate bar, with its slide off cover and geometric print – kind of what I imagine … Continue reading Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette
