Real Techniques Miracle Mini Eraser Sponges

Just when you thought Real Techniques had pretty much produced every tool you there is, out pops 3 new sponges - the Miracle Mini Eraser, the Diamond and the Sculpting sponge. (There goes my spending ban!!!)

Disappointing Liquid Lipsticks

Disappointing Liquid Lipsticks

With revolutionary formulas promising intense pigmentation in just one swipe, liquid lipsticks have become the must have item to have in your make up bag resulting in every brand creating their own formula. We also expect these to be comfortable and long-wearing too! 

We all know matte formulas can be quite drying on the lips, and at times may need the assistance of a lip scrub and a lip balm before application. However there are always gonna be some that still don't perform as well as you hoped, and I for one have been really disappointed with these few I'll be showing you today.

How To Leave A Clickable Link In The Comments Section

Hi, everyone!

Something slightly different in today's post! I'll be sharing how to create a clickable blog link to leave in the comments section in other blog posts so readers can be redirected to your blog. 

During the early days of blogging, there's no denying, learning the ropes when you're a technophobe can be pretty overwhelming and intimidating! I don't consider myself an expert by no means and have still an awful lot to learn. So whether you're just starting out or it's just something that's past you by, I thought I'd share one of the easiest and most effective ways of creating a clickable blog link.

Review: Morphe 35P Colour Plum Eyeshadow Palette

Morphe 350P Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hi, everyone! 

There's been a lot talk recently from other bloggers sharing their love of the things Autumn and I've got to admit, I didn't exactly welcome the new season with open arms! I was never one to embrace  this "topsy tervy" climate we endure here in ole Blighty! Although the recent Indian Summer has  stalled the Autumn season that bit longer. Luckily, I had a new palette waiting in the wings ready to be trialled - one of those large Morphe palettes, sharing the Autumn plummy tones of the 35P.

Great Makeup Tools From Bdellium Tools, Zoeva And Tarte


This post has been sitting in my draft for ages as it keeps getting overlooked!

I love my brushes from Real Techniques, But when you're a total makeup hoarder like me, one struggles to resist the urge to try other brands. I mean - it's for the blog, right?  As when you become a blogger, it isn't too long before you start to use this as an excuse when it comes to buying anything!

Makeup Jargon For Beginners: Using Eyeshadow

Hi, everyone!

I recently had a colleague at work approach me enquiring about some of the terminology used when applying eye makeup. This gave me an idea to publish a post describing what these mean along with some of the tools needed to apply.

When glancing at the immaculate glossy eye images on Instagram, it can be quite easy to fall into the trap thinking that's how every eye makeup should look and you can never wear it.  You can achieve looks just as beautiful using just a single shadow and most certainly don't need to have spend years at art school to learn how to hold a brush! Just a little practice is all you need.

Nivea Sensitive Post Shave Balm. Is It Worth The Hype?

Nivea Sensitive Post Shave Balm Review

You're probably all familiar with the story that's fairly old news now from YouTuber Nikkie from Nikkie Tutorials, where she forgot to pack her moisturiser for a stay over at her boyfriend's, and then decided to use his post shave balm (yes, a product that is designed for MEN!) and used it not only as moisturiser but a primer as well.

Since that story was broken to rest of the us, hoards of women have found themselves venturing down the men's section and stocking up on this magic potion, resulting in claims that it can even outperform some of best primers on the market (really?)

Sample Woes At The Beauty Counter

Hi, everyone!

Now before I begin, I just want to point out that I am in no way bashing our beauty consultants. They only do what they've been instructed to do.... It's the brands themselves I'm a little frustrated with!
