Be Barefaced; Brand Focus Review

How I discovered Be Barefaced? I was on the hunt for a facial oil and discovered Be Barefaced. I was talking to a friend who is addicted to skin care on a women’s Facebook group and she quickly recommended Be Barefaced. She told me I could buy their products on Amazon. Being an Amazon prime…

Beauty Haul; what have I been buying?

June haul; Superdrug, Marks and Spencer, B & M, Face theory and Be Barefaced. I do declare that this is the first beauty haul in a while. Now that I am on ‘project use up’ I have saved up my purchases up over a couple months. At this time last year, I would have been…

Winging it; Epic Eyeliner Review

Anyone you knows me knows how addicted to eyeliner I am; I love the stuff and cannot exist without my trusty wing as my homage to eyeliner, to wing or not to wing, demonstrated.

Stylpro Review

What is the style pro?
Before the Stylpro, washing your makeup brushes meant getting your hands full of soapy water and rubbing your brushes on some sort of silicone mat that looks like a strange massage device. Cleaning your makeup brushes regularly is a vital and important step which avoids bacteria build-up, possible infection or contamination of your make-up products.

Spring Nail Polish

Bringing out the Spring Nail Polishes A change is not necessarily a bad thing, especially when it comes to embracing Spring. There are two different types of beauty addict; those who wear their favourite colours/shades all year round and those that change with the season. Of those two I am more of the later; I…

Superdrug, Beauty Bay and Primark haul

Another haul; Superdrug, Beauty Bay  and Primark I know, I said I would be shopping anymore. I have done well to curb the amount I spend on makeup but a few things slipped through the net in what was an absolutely horrendously busy month. I feel like this haul, apart from a few luxury items has been a practical collective shop. This…

Spring is officially upon us and we can kiss goodbye to those dark, depressing, cold days. I am grateful for the upcoming Spring as a chance to nurture my positive side and focus on the things that make me happy.

Palette Battle; Juvia’s Place vs Makeup Revolution

First Impressions can be misleading
I am wary of a first impression of a product as it is not a real test on how good or bad a product is. Have you ever met someone and thought ‘this person is lovely’ only to find out down the line that they are the devil incarnate. Likewise I have met people that I did not warm to at first who are now firm friends. The same thing can be applied to your first impressions of a product. Whenever I do a haul or project pan, I am conscious that I am fallible to changing my mind about makeup after using it for a while. I even have a product on my disappointing products list that I would repurchase. I based my post on my first impressions and using the product up made me realise how good it was, I am a walking contradiction.

The Scent of Me: My Perfume Favourites

A fragrance is such an evocative thing; it can remind you of summers as a teenager, people you love or memorable events. Your sense of smell determines so much within your life; it can stir up strong feelings of love, comfort and even disgust. Over the years I have tried many a fragrance or three and it is accurate to say that my tastes have altered and changed along the way.
