Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation Review

It is like the season of the foundation right now, as there are soooo many new launches, many of which are great and some of which I'll be sharing with you very soon, but I wanted to kick things off with the fantastic Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid foundation, because it really is a superstar product that you need to get your hands on ASAP. The Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid definitely sounds like an anti-ageing product, which is a shame,[...]

Kiko Sicilian Notes Collection

Kiko are amazing at creating make-up that really makes you stop and stare.  The Kiko Sicilian Notes Collection is just so pretty and covetable, it's the sort of thing you want to not use and just post loads of pics of it on Instagram! As with all Kiko collections, Sicilian Notes is jam-packed with goodies with a bit of everything to suit all tastes: there are bronzers, blushers, a new foundation (I very much want it) as well as some surprising ad[...]

IT Cosmetics New Launches at QVC UK

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  I'll be honest, now I'm in my 9th year of blogging, there are very few brands that get me particularly excited (although there are, thankfully, still a few!) but IT Cosmetics is definitely a brand that I keep a very close eye on, mostly because their products are just so fantastically reliable.  They have some of the best eyeshadow formulas I've ever tried, some of[...]

Palette Love: Beauty Bakerie Game of Cones

There's a lot to love about the Beauty Bakerie Game of Cones palette...not just the awesome name, but the mix of fun, yet surprisingly wearable, shades that provide lots of colour and lots of shimmer, making this the sort of palette that's handy to have in your collection for times when you fancy a bit more pizzazz. The Beauty Bakerie Game of Cones contains 12 shades in total, all of which have names that you might associate with Game of Th[...]

MUA Pro Base Long Wear Matte Finish Foundation

I usually focus on foundations that provide a bit of glow, and very rarely allow anything mattifying into my routine as my skin can look really dry under a matte finish, but the MUA Pro Base Long Wear Matte Finish Foundation has been getting a lot of wear recently as the hot weather has resulted in an often shiny face that has actually benefited from a matte foundation. The first big surprise from the MUA Pro Base Long Wear Matte Finish Fou[...]

Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminous Blush Trio

I might as well rename my blog Beauty Pie Geek at this rate, since I seem to be featuring Beauty Pie more regularly than any other brand at the moment, but in my defence, Beauty Pie have released some crackers recently, and I think my favourite of all has to be the new Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminous Blush Trio, even though it has an inexplicably long name, but there you go. The Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminou[...]

Avon Mark Epic Lip Powders

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  More often than not, I reach for the balmiest of lip products, especially in the warmer weather when I hate the feeling of anything heavy on my face, so it's all light and creamy textures that involve very little effort.  Matte lips are a really tricky product to get right, which is why I mostly avoid them as I find matte lipstick hard to wear - I'm someone who[...]

Kat Von D Go Big or Go Home Mascara

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  I do love a good mascara, but I also find that I don't really get on with the ones that everyone raves about, so I always tread carefully when subscribing to hype, although not so carefully that I don't end up buying tons of mascaras that I don't need. The Kat Von D Go Big or Go Home Mascara is a recent launch that I was excited to try as it has a lot of good going f[...]

Beauty Pie Sunshiney Day Palette

My obsession with Beauty Pie continues - honestly, it's become a bit of a daily thing for me to check the site and see what's coming, and there are some are very exciting skincare launches on the horizon, so I'm hitting the daily refresh button like a crazy person.  I had my eye on the Beauty Pie Sunshiney Day Palette as soon as it appeared on the Beauty Pie site, because I'm definitely feeling the love for warmer tones on the eyes, but I'm also[...]

Tropic Colour Palette – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  You may remember, way back in April, I shared my initial thoughts on the very exciting new make-up range from Tropic (check out my post here) and the launch I was most excited about was the Tropic Colour Palette, which is a fully-customisable palette that really does offer you the opportunity to pack almost every make-up need into a single palette; we're talking blus[...]

Revlon Photoready Candid Collection

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  It's been absolutely ages since I featured anything from Revlon, which is a real shame as they're a brand that are so good at coming-up with accessible and budget-friendly beauty innovations, with some very cool launches that somehow, inexplicably pass me by.  Thankfully, I was sent the newly launched, Photoready Candid collection, which is an exciting trio of base[...]
