L’Oreal Perfect Match Perfecting Concealer

I love the L’oreal True Match foundation so thought I would give the concealer a go. This is a great drug-store option if you are looking for a good concealer on a budget. I would say the formula is comparable to the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer which is one of my all-time favourites, so not bad for £6.99! Shade Selection One serious drawback to … Continue reading L’Oreal Perfect Match Perfecting Concealer

Barry M Flawless Matte Finish Foundation

I feel like drugstore brands are really stepping up their game when it comes to foundations. Barry M is definitely one of these brands.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Cheek Illuminator

I love Tanya Burr, so that fact that it took me this long to try anything from her makeup range is shocking form. To be honest though, nothing had caught my attention until she came out with her newest range; ‘Glow your Own Way’.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

I’m very picky about my eyeliners. They need to be pigmented, easy to apply and long-lasting (no one wants that panda look by the end of the day). Spoiler…this offering from Rimmel delivered on none of these criteria. I liked the idea of the Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick and Thin eyeliner because of its unique nib. The idea is that you can draw thick lines with … Continue reading Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

Priced at £9.99 (at Superdrug), this new concealer palette is described by L’Oreal as “Our 1st concealer palette with 2 high coverage, colour-correcting shades and 3 … Continue reading L’Oreal Infaillible Full Coverage Longwear Concealer Palette
