Cohorted Beauty Box June 2020 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

The Cohorted box this month was as always the standard black, square box that closes with a lid. The box also came with it’s monthly, small beauty magazine (about 30 pages) that tells you a little bit more about each product and some featured products or artists. But the contents were very exciting this month! Cohorted June 2020 was a one-brand only box and contained 6 This Works products! I love one-brand boxes as they give you an inside intoRead more

Estée Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

There are many primers out there but I separate them into two different categories. The ones that help with makeup (mattify the skin, give glow etc) and the ones that are more nutritious for the skin that help the makeup look by elevating the quality of the skin. The Estée Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer is the type of primer that doesn’t have a high nutritional value but can help add a little glow. But does ti work properly and isRead more

Illamasque Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel Primer – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Matte makeup finishes are great, especially for oily skin, but there is also such thing as too matte. Sometimes if you use too many matte products, especially strong matter foundations, the result can actually create harshness and emphasise texture. As a result, I’ve been looking for a way to add a little dewyness without looking too shiny either. But it’s really hard to achieve that on oily skin! Dewy foundations become too oily and come off quickly and dewy primersRead more

Annabelle Minerals Blush – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

When I was young I used to wear a lot of blush and then I stopped around my mid–twenties which is sort of funny. Young skin is usually more blushed and so wearing blush is one of the easiest, quickest fixes you can do to look younger and more refreshed. Although there are many blushes out there and most of them work well, I think what put me off is the fact that it is hard to find the rightRead more
