Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer Trialled on Oily Skin

The Matte and Hydra Veils have been products on my Beauty Wishlist to try since they launched in 2014. I don’t know why I hadn’t got around to purchasing them, probably because Illamasqua just is a really hard to see in person brand for me – but when I stumbled upon a set in TK […]

Current Favourites – Spring 2018

Favourites posts are few and far between for me, true favourites don’t swap themselves in and out very often so I tend to only talk about the products which end up becoming a favourite staple in my routine. My last current favourites was in December… 2016 (other than my favourites of 2017). So it seemed well […]

Products I’m Trying To Use Up – Winter 2017

It hasn’t quite been three months since my last seasonal edition of this, but when I took over to review what I featured last time I saw that I’d actually managed to use the majority of them up, so I started digging out what I wanted to get used up next. This is probably the […]

Six Products I’m Loving and Three That I’m Not

I posted a similar post back in spring of these and it’s been one of my favourite posts I’ve worked on all year. I don’t do proper favourites very often as I find the things I’m really loving don’t change all that much espcially as I’ve had a year focussed on using stuff up and […]

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation Review (SB06)

I’d heard incredible things about the Skin Base Foundation since December, it’s a foundation which seems to have been around for a good chunk of time, but has avoided being on my radar. I heard someone review it who has a very similar skin type to me, oily combo skin which most foundations struggle to […]

I’ve been really, really lax with being bothered to paint my nails over the past month or so. Nothing seems to have been lasting on my nails without peeling for more than a couple of days – that includes gel aswell! And my motivation for doing my nails (and the really bloody busy December I […]

You Beauty July 2016

You Beauty is a beauty box which I’ve admired from afar. In terms of it’s value it’s just about the best you can get in the UK if you’re looking for a truly inexpensive treat each month at £6.95. It lacks the surprise factor, with a selection of products that you choose from each month. […]
