REVIEW: Too Faced’s ‘Better Than Sex’ Mascara WATERPROOF

Image result for too faced mascara better than sex

So my first make up review after quite a long hiatus had to be my favourite make up item: mascara!

I know that Too Faced’s ‘Better than Sex’ mascara has been out for a long time and lots of people have raved about it in the past, but I have always refrained from buying it because as you know, I always stick to waterproof mascaras due to having straight eyelashes! So, could you believe my luck when this month’s Glossybox contained a sample of this in the waterproof edition?! I was so excited to try it out and I must say I am really pleasantly surprised.

REVIEW: Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream


I know I did a review of the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night cream (which I’m still unsure about) and mentioned that I was a big fan of the original Magic Cream, so I since I recently bought a new pot I thought I would write a full review on this product and let you know what I think!

Seventeen WOW! Skin Concealer

Another concealer review! I do love ’em. This time is from a drugstore brand from the UK called Seventeen (17? They used to brand it like that but maybe not anymore) and looks suspiciously like YSL’s Touche Eclat, is only £4.99 and is also marketed as a highlighter. Amazing!

REVIEW: Minus 417 Catharsis Vitamin & Mineral Shampoo


I received samples of these in March’s Glossy Box and thought they looked really luxurious and glamorous. In really chic gold and silver bottles and with a fancy name and description, obviously I was more than excited to try these out, whilst also waiting for a good time to use them as I thought they seemed rather special.

They claim to be a vitamin mineral shampoo that supplies the perfect balance, deep cleansing and balanced moisturiser and shine for the hair. Based on natural active ingredients: balancing minerals from the Dead Sea and energising vitamins as well as unique plant extracts. Oooh, fancy… The end result is supposedly soft hair that is healthy, shiny and glowing. Is it true? Read on to find out!

REVIEW: L’Oreal Skin Perfection Range


I know I’m late to this collection, but I’m a sucker for skincare and always on the hunt to see what works best for my 23 year-old skin. This L’Oreal Skin Perfection range is aimed for those in their 20’s and 30’s, where your skin is still young but not always perfect (well, obviously, L’Oreal).

This skin collection claims to help to transform the appearance of skin quality, as if perfected (yes, I’m listening) whereby pores are virtually undetectable, tone looks more even and skin texture feels silky-soft. The moisturiser and serum also locks in moisture for up to 24 hours, apparently.

So, this sounds perfect for me. As someone who doesn’t have particularly blemish-prone, dry or oily skin, but also someone who does suffer with uneven skin tone and scarring from previous irritations – this sounds right up my street. For someone who also doesn’t want to fork out £100 for skincare on a graduate job, this is also a dream for under £40. But does it do what it says on the can? Only one way to find out!

REVIEW: Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette


Introducing 7 of Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup secrets to give you a natural-looking You-but-Better look in just one palette… I am so excited to be reviewing this as it is right up my street!

It claims to create a look that suits every woman whilst enhancing the colours that nature has naturally blessed you with. It also claims to provide day to evening makeup – and all in just 5 minutes! Amazing! As someone who values a couple more minutes in bed over makeup, then spends the rest of the day wishing I’d put a bit more effort into my look, I am pretty confident that this product will be an absolute lifesaver.

I can’t believe it’s April already! And that can only mean one thing… Monthly favourites time! I’ve been trying to save a bit of money this week as I ended up going on a skiing holiday this week which was eye-wateringly expensive, so sorry for the lack of new products! However, I hope you enjoy this post and if you would like to see me review anything or have something to recommend this month, then please let me know!

REVIEW: Rimmel Radiance BB Cream

I came across this product in Heathrow airport after leaving all my makeup in the car before I went on holiday this week! I knew I had more than enough foundations to last me a lifetime, so I thought I’d try a BB cream. I’d never seen this one before, so I’m uncertain of how new this is however it’s new to me so I thought I would review it!

My morning skincare routine!


I have done a previous post on my evening skin care routine, but my morning one is just as important! This routine varies throughout the year, but as it is coming into spring/summer here in the UK, I thought I would tailor it to what I prefer using in the summer.

REVIEW: Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer


I might be a bit late on the bandwagon here but I know this product has been catching a lot of peoples’ eyes at the moment and as a concealer-fiend/living zombie, I knew I had to at least give this ago considering what wonderful things people are saying about this product!

Just a disclaimer, I am completely honest in my reviews and unless stated otherwise none of these posts are sponsored!
