Beauty Hack Experiment- a lighter and some sellotape. Literally a smoky eye.

   Today I am doing another experiment. When you google makeup cheats, certain suggestions come up time and time again. Turning eyeliner into a gel with a lighter being one of them. Sounds messy, so I thought I would also use another hack I have read about- using sellotape as a stencil for eyeliner. I…

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion-could it be magic?

It’s £16 and the website says- “Space-age polymer technology fills in any imperfections on the skin’s surface, prepping your lids for all-day shadow.” Like the sound of that? I did. So today my mission was to find out if their claim of “24-hour, crease-free shadow, more vibrant color and smoother application” could be substantiated. I…

One beauty tool you never knew you needed? The Spoon!

   I’ve been googling makeup tips a lot recently, something I kept coming across was spoons! You can use them as a stencil for eye liner and eyeshadow, to stop eyeshadow landing on your cheek and to stop mascara going onto your upper eyelid, apparently. So this morning I came to the makeup section of…

Let’s have a ganders at Revlon Moisture Stain today. 

   I’m all over Revlon at the moment aren’t I. Mainly because it’s 3 for 2 in Boots. It would have been £7.99 had I paid for it.  It goes on like a lipgloss but it’s less sticky. Your not going to get your hair stuck to your mouth when you turn around. It’s moisturising…

Revlon Colourstay Liquid Eyeliner. Miaow.

For Valentine’s Day my charming husband bought me a voucher for John Lewis, what a peach! No surprise but I’ve gone and spent it already, I bought a magnifying mirror (£39) It’s the same diameter as my face, I can see molecules with it practically. It’s free standing so I can pop it at the…

Tom Ford vs Kate Moss. A battle of the lipsticks. Ding ding!

   Here we have two heavyweights of my lipstick world. Tom Ford cherry lush and Kate Moss matte lipstick number 107. The Tom Ford cost £38 and the Kate Moss cost £5.49. Who’s going to win. The Tom Ford packaging is gorgeous, white, gold and angular. I think they do the packaging in black now…

Just for you on Valentine’s Day- a review of MUA matte lipstick x

   Happy Valentine’s Day ladies (and men I hope)  So these lipsticks have lain unloved in my vast collection for some time but today they’ve had a little outing before they go back into the pile.  I’ve read a lot about MUA (makeup academy FYI) being the best budget makeup range going. It certainly is…

Garnier Pure Active Matte Control with Airlicium- High claims!

   That’s a bit of a mouthful eh? Garnier Pure Active Matte Control with Airlicium. It promises to keep blemishes controlled, keep my skin matte for 8 hours and it moisturises. Could it also make me a cup of tea and do the laundry? High boasts indeed. And just what is Aircilium, sounds like hocus…

If you only buy one eyeshadow ever it should be…Urban Decay Naked palette 

I do enjoy a good  eyeshadow palette. So much possibly and value for money. Only problem is I only use two of the colours ever. As you can see- There’s always one or two that remain untouched. The ones above are MAC and pretty as they are, turn out to be only 50% useful. Not…

Kiko Lip Marker, a genius idea!

My review of Kiko Lip Marker in shade 106 Apple Red    Kiko again? I hear you exclaim. I keep going back, in part because the music they play in there puts my baby to sleep (but also because of the lovely lovely makeup). A lip marker seems like a brilliant idea. My lipstick usually…
