Beauty Product Discovery – Glossybox Beauty Box November 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Beauty SOS! Another Glossybox is here and this month’s theme was “an emergency supply of haircare, makeup and skincare”. It is basically an essentials type of box which is nice all year around, especially for stocking up before the winter festivities. Since it was all about essentials, the design of the box remained as the iconic pink Glossybox without any special prints. I personally love these boxes, they are very sturdy and useful for storage and gifting and in generalRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Look Fantastic Beauty Box November 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Look Fantastic went for a “Dark Wonder” theme this month and it came with a gorgeous dark blue, burgundy and gold colour box. The Look Fantastic boxes are always beautiful and sturdy, no matter of the theme, but this month the theme works really well for November and for the box design itself. Love it! The products contained are meant to leave you dazzling in the moonlight and while some of the literally will do just that, others are aRead more

Three Way Battle of Foundations: Estée Lauder Double Wear vs Clinique Superbalanced Silk vs Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free. In-depth Review and Ingredient Analyses

The Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation is the world’s best foundation for oily skin, as agreed by many bloggers, and it is even rated as such in places like Influenster etc. It’s such a good foundation that none of the other foundations I’ve tried so far, even the so called dupes, have managed to convince me to switch.

The Klip Shop and SOLIDU Solid Shampoo with Rosemary and Mint – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

These days you can buy cosmetics from literally everywhere, even supermarkets and gas stations! However, while I think that trying out a product first is paramount and that beauty shops with brand counters are incredibly useful, I buy most of my cosmetics from online beauty stores. This is because online stores often have discounts and offers that turn out to be much cheaper than in-store. With that being said though, only buy from legit only beauty stores as there areRead more

Oryza Beauty Lipsticks – In-Depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

I love lipsticks, they can be the perfect centre piece of any look. However, although there are many of them out there, most of them don’t last very long and some of them feel drying on the lips. I’ve recently tried the Oryza Dewy Glow Skin Beauty Balm as a lip balm and absolutely loved it! The ingredients are nourishing for the skin and it feels amazingly moisturising on the lips. Not to mention that it is actually cheaper thanRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Cohorted Beauty Box October 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

October’s Cohorted was all about “everything you need to get your beauty cravings through fall” and I love the theme. Fall is well under way and it’s such a lovely excuse for gorgeous earth inspired colours and makeup looks. However, as it often goes with beauty box themes, the products contained weren’t specific to the theme and could have fit almost any theme. The Cohorted box was as always the standard black, square box that closes magnetically and ties withRead more
