Review: Makeup Revolution X Soph Highlighter Palette

By now dear reader mine, you’ll know that I have a love of highlighters. Well, in my overall love of all things makeup and skincare, highlighters are a particular weakness of mine (and yes, this is the second highlighter palette review in a row that I’m posting on my blog). A good highlighter can make […]

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion – A Miracle for Acne Sufferers

In the last couple of years, makeup has become incredibly popular with well known brands being forced to up their game by little known brands who have challenged them in product and price.

Garnier, Hydra Bomb, Sheet Mask

Garnier Skin Active Hydra Bomb Tissue Mask

I’m a big fan of skincare. You can wear the most high end makeup in the world, but if you aren’t looking after your skin, then it just won’t apply and last as well as it could. Core to my skincare regime are masks. I usually have several kinds of masks in rotation depending on […]

Review: Elizabeth Arden Highlighter in Gold Illumination

In the world of highlighters at the moment, Elizabeth Arden isn’t a brand that you immediately think of.

Here is the first of a two-part post with my 2015 Skincare and Hair Favourites. I had to split Beauty Favourites out to be part 2 because if I didn’t, this post would be epic (it’s already pretty long). Grab a cuppa and enjoy!

The Body Shop Big & Curvy Waterproof Mascara and Shiseido Eyelash Curler

Being someone who is not blessed in the eyelash department, and not very experienced in false eyelash application, I’m always on the lookout for a great mascara. Yes, I’m one of those bloggers that stops you in the street to ask what mascara, lipstick, foundation etc you’re wearing. I work with the lovely Chloe, who […]

Reflections on 2015

Well 2015, I can’t say I’m sorry to see you go. It wasn’t the best year and I reached the end of it a very tired and worn out woman, both physically and emotionally. But, it hasn’t all been bad, as my lovely partner pointed out to me when I said “2015 sucked big time”. […]
