L’Oreal Fixing Mist or Urban Decay Setting Spray?

L'Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist

I have been a long time fan of the Urban Decay De-Slick makeup setting spray.  It costs £22* for 118ml and £9* for the 30ml travel size that I  now own.  It does such a wonderful job at holding everything in place and taking away the powdery look of any finished makeup look.  I think […]

I’ve had these two beauties for quite a while,  in fact the red crayon – Make a Statement made an appearance in my September Favourites!  So I’ve definitely tested them out thoroughly.  These are the Barry M Matte Me Up* lip crayons cost £4.99, so a bit of a bargain and more often than not, […]

Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara

I spotted the Rimmel Wonder Full Wake Me Up* mascara this in boots the other week and thought it looked interesting, plus I’d not bought a mascara in a while.   This was retailing for £7.99 so not too bad cost wise.  So first off the bat, it has nice packaging, which I think has […]

No7 Midnight Lash Mascara

No7 Midnight Lash Mascara

I got this mascara sent to me two months ago and as it has featured regularly on my instagram I thought I should probably do a quick review!  Boots seemed to have sent out random free gifts to lots of people, with no obligation or request to talk about it.  It was just literally a […]

Clarins Instant Light Vs No7 BB Lips, dupe?

Bit of a review and comparison of the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector* in the shade 01 and the No7 BB Lips in the shade Blink Pink.   I’ve had the BB Lips for quite a few months but I’ve only recently acquired the Clarin Instant Light and I think I may have an accidental dupe!  So let’s […]
