Beauty Product Discovery – Glossybox Beauty Box February 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

The romantic aspect of February is such a great opportunity for makeup. Any excuse for nice makeup right? Sadly, Glossybox didn’t deliver this month which is very rare as it is almost always great but unfortunately they really picked the wrong month to be boring! This month’s theme was “It’s all about love” and although the box design was absolutely gorgeous the contents were underwhelming. Let’s focus on the box design though because it truly was gorgeous. The lid wasRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Look Fantastic Beauty Box February 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

February is such a nice opportunity for makeup, even if you don’t believe in or celebrate Valentines day. It’s a nice opportunity to take care of yourself, fell pretty and go out on a date. With that in mind, I had high hopes for this month’s Look Fantastic box. The box itself was simple but elegant and beautiful, having different shades of pink and gold-pink writing. It’s typical for Look Fantastic to have simple, just coloured no designs boxes, whichRead more

This Works In Transit Camera Mask, Moisturiser & Primer vs First Aid Beauty Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturiser – In-depth Reviews and Ingredient Analyses

Primers are a relatively new makeup product and while they are not necessarily a must, if chosen wisely, they can take your makeup and skincare to the next level. Although there are many makeup primers these days, for me they fall into just two categories. Primers that only do 1 specific thing and therefore, I would only use in specific parts of the face (like for example oil reduction primers or pore minimisers that I would use on my T-zone)Read more

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Don’t you love it when you somehow get a product you’ve never heard or tried before for free and then end up loving it? I recently bought some Clinique products to test and there was an offer of spending £55 and getting a full size cleanser for free. Didn’t even need to try for the offer, as you know all too well, a cosmetics orders easily get above that price. Atleast I got a full size Clinique take the dayRead more

Estée Lauder Double Wear Wars – Original vs Nude Water Fresh – In-depth Reviews and Ingredient Analyses

The Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation is the best foundation for oily skin and can work for normal and combination ones too. I’ve tried many foundations and while some had advantages over the Double Wear, none were good enough as a full product to make me switch.

Is talc in cosmetics safe?

Let’s talk about talc! Talc is a naturally occurring mineral that is accused of being a carcinogen. Like with many accused compounds, talc has been at the forefront of some major news articles and even a few lawsuits! You might have heard about the famous lawsuits against the Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder, however, while I don’t have access to the actual court case papers and I’m going by what the media reported, the cases were not as simple asRead more

Nyx Eyeshadow Palettes – In-depth Reviews and Ingredient Analysis

Eyeshadow palettes are one of the priciest makeup items to buy, no matter of which brand you choose to go for. In a way it makes sense, as it is an item that will last you for a long time but on the other hand, the ingredients contained really do not justify the prices. In my mission to find cheaper products that are actually high quality, I turned to Nyx, a drugstore brand with a twist. It sells cheap makeupRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Cohorted Beauty Box January 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Cohorted started out this year strong. This month’s box contained quite a lot of different products and of decent sizes too! Cohorted doesn’t really follow a monthly theme but this month they focused on products to “kick start a radiant New Year” and it definitely fits the month as well as the products contained. Great stuff! The Cohorted box was as always the standard black, square box that closes magnetically and ties with a ribbon. The box also came withRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Glossybox Beauty Box January 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

First Glossybox of the year and I must say, I wasn’t thrilled. Not a bad box and not bad products but it just missed that little wow factor. This month’s theme was “beauty products that’ll make keeping our beauty resolutions easy” which is great but it really depends on what your resolutions are! This month’s box contained 5 products as always, of which 3 were full size and the other 2 were travel size. The products were, as seen inRead more
