Clarins Supra Volume Mascara Review

Clarins Supra Volume Mascara

You might remember seeing this mascara from my recent Simple Glowy Look.  I picked it up as part of one of Christmas gift sets, they’re such a great wait to try out different products.  This is the Clarins Supra Volume mascara*, which retails for £21.50 and you get the standard 8ml.    It’s definitely on […]

All about the brows

Eyebrow Pencil Comparison

Before we start, I will point out now, you will not find Instagram perfect brows here. They’re not really my style.  I also have a love hate relationship with my brows, sometimes they’re perfect, other times, not a mission.  I generally use pencils more than anything else when it comes to my brows, they’re just […]

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 […]

Beauty Buys

It was my birthday in August, so I may have treated myself to the odd nice item this month and a tiny spurge.  Obviously because it was my birthday, while I was in Dublin  I did pick up a few items that you can’t pick up in the UK.    I repurchased my Botanics Cleansing […]

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer

This retails at £15* for 2.5ml, which places it on the higher end of eyelid primers.  I’ve been testing this out for at least a month now and I have to admit I really quite enjoy it.  I may even prefer it over my mac painterly paint pot as a lid primer.  Plus I prefer […]

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 […]
