Products I’m Trying to Use Up – Summer 2019

I’ve been on such a roll with finishing products up, when I took a gander at my last use up list from only early April, it was pleasantly surprising to see that I’d managed to finish seven out of eleven products! I’d already found myself moving over to new items to concentrate on so I […]

Products I’m Trying to Use Up – Spring 2019

It’s been several months since my last list of “Products I’m Trying To Use Up”, once I’d took a look over my last list I was pleased to see that I’d managed to finish up most already – so I went through my drawers to cherry pick some new products to try and get finished […]

Stila One Step Correct Primer – Oily Skin Review

[Gifted by Marks and Spencer’s] Stila’s One Step Correct Primer is a product that I’ve long admired in shops and had on my “one day, I’ll eventually try that product”, so when I was lucky enough to be sent it last year, I held if off whilst I worked my way through my primer collection […]

Ten Empties #23

It’s definitely been my longest gap between Empties posts this year – I’ve been a little distracted with moving over the past few weeks but that doesn’t meant that I stopped collating my empties in the meantime. I have a “few” more products than ten featured in this edition, but I wanted to get it […]

Ten Empties #22

Another ten empties and a couple of extras too. We’re moving out of our house Saturday and into the new one on Thursday with a couple of nights being spent at Hotel Mum and Dad. I had few extra empties, and one product that I know that will be finished before we move as I’m […]

Products I’m Trying to Use Up – Autumn 2018

It’s been a few months since my last batch of products was portioned off and targeted for meeting my empties pile. I’ve taken a look over the two of these posts I did in the summer and the majority of those products seem to have been ticked off. In fact there’s only out 6 of […]

Three High End Concealers put to the Test

When it comes to concealers, I basically have no loyalty. You know how some people find that one that knocks their socks off, they stick loyally to it. Whist I’ve found the odd concealer over the years that I’ve been fond of and repurchased, I’ve never found the one that’s impressed me so much that […]

It goes without […]

Ten Empties #11

It’s been a good few weeks since my last empties, after a little blogging break and a few weekends away the pile started growing to a mammoth old-Rachael-sized empties and I’ve had a full 20 lined up – so there will be another one following not too long after this one! I tried to cherry-pick […]

Ten Empties #9

I said in my last empties that it wouldn’t be long before the next and I wasn’t wrong – less than a week later the products that were on their last legs were finished up and done. I think there may be a longer pause between my tenth (yep! how did we get there already!) […]

5 Current Makeup Bag Favourites

It’s not very often that I have some absolute go-to staples that I want to use all the time, but over the past few weeks there have been five products that have stood out in my makeup bag… or I should say drawers because I don’t actually keep products in a makeup bag – but […]

Eye’m Going Mad – Collective Haul March/April 2018

I’ve had a good few weekends away, days in London and one too many naughty small orders here and there over the past month. I thought I wouldn’t really be hauling anything as it “wasn’t that much” until I thought about it and thought – “no you did buy a fair bit” and once it […]
