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

I was really looking forward to the December beauty boxes as I was imagining really festive, colourful makeup appropriate for the season. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, it’s still nice to have one beauty box a year were colours, glitter, bath bombs and eyeshadows dominate. Sadly, while the box design was very festive indeed, the contents of the box were not. However, I actually thought that the products contained were really nice and would have made an excellent boxRead more

Coffee Chat: Black Friday Beauty Deals

Hello my lovelies, I was going to pubish a beauty box post today but somewhere between the UK-wide network problems and the bad weather, the beauty box I had in mind has not been delivered. Next week! Nevertheless, I’ve been wanting to write a quick coffee chat about the Black Friday beauty deals and my experiences the past few years. So grab a coffee and join me in a little quick rant! Black Friday is meant to be a, ifRead more

Best Cleanser To Use With Your Electric Face Brush – Lancôme Gel Éclat – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

There are many cleansers out there, some of which even go beyond the cleaning duty by offering skin nourishing ingredients. However, many of them have a relatively watery or creamy texture and are not very convenient to use in combination with cleaning enhancement products, such as electric face cleaning brushes. I personally own a Clarisonic brush and while it cleans well and the experience is nice, it is annoying to use if the cleanser is too liquid or cream like.Read more

Estée Lauder Double Wear Liquid vs Powder – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analyses

If you have oily skin then I’m sure you’ve heard of the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation and for good reason. It is not one of those overhyped beauty products, it is truly the best foundation for oily skin. There are a lot of shades to choose from, which include undertones, it lasts for 12hours+, feels lightweight, controls oils, doesn’t need re-touching and you can find it to buy from almost everywhere these days. I always compare other foundations toRead more

Settling the Controversy – Is the Tarteist Pro Eyeshadow Palette Good or Bad? – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

The Tarteist Pro eyeshadow palette has been out for a couple of years and although I’ve been late to the Tarte party in general (because Tarte has a very poor presence in the UK), I also took my sweet time in deciding whether I wanted to buy this palette to begin with. This palette is one of the many controversial high-end brand beauty items, as it has received a lot of mixed reviews. There are some beauty influencers that giveRead more

Cheap Makeup – Nip + Fab Eyeshadow Palettes – In-depth Reviews and Ingredient Analysis

Eyeshadow palettes cost so much money these days, no matter of the brand. They tend to range from £30-£45, which is a lot of money regardless of your financial situation. You only need to buy 2-3 eyeshadow palettes and you’ve already reached the £100 mark! However, there is some light at the end of the tunnel. The drugstore brands are slowing becoming better (at least in comparison to what I remember as a child and young adult) and there areRead more

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

This month’s beauty boxes were all quite nice which almost convinced me that the Cohorted box would be the bad one. But I was wrong! It seems that this is the month of beautiful beauty boxes! This month’s Cohorted was a one-brand box which I personally really liked! I loved the last one-brand box, full of Doucce makeup, and so it was about time we get a one-brand skincare box! I know some will not be as happy because thereRead more

Can you smooth out lines and wrinkles? Nip + Fab Viper Venom Frown Fix – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Skincare is paramount not only for slowing down ageing but also in general, for keeping your skin healthy, which we often forget is our body’s biggest organ. However, no matter how good your skincare is, ageing is inevitable. Cosmetics that promise you otherwise are simply giving you a dose of marketing. You can slow down ageing but you cannot avoid it. So, is there anything we can do after those lines appear or even to those natural lines and creases,Read more

Best Lipsticks for Dry Lips – Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Lipsticks can be a lot more than just makeup, sometimes they can even be ways to cheer ourselves up or give us a confidence boost. Check out Why do we use make up…and should we? Lipsticks are also a nice way of expressing our mood or character on the day, and some can even condition and protect our lip skin from damage.

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
