Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer

It finally rained this week! All of a sudden the weather is so pleasant and cool! Anywho... as the name suggests, Stila's tinted moisturizer is perfect for summer if you don't want heavy coverage. Tinted moisturizers blend very well with the skin and provide a more natural look. It's suitable if you don't need a lot of coverage. They don't last very long though. So it really depends on your needs on what works best for you and your skin. It's sheer and oil free. It does even out my skin and stays…Read more

NYX Eye Shadow in Taupe and True Taupe

Today, I'll review the NYX eye shadows Taupe and True Taupe! Siblings in the name but the shades are quite different. Taupe is more yellow while True taupe has more grey and red in it. I have to disclose that I bought these because I like to make my eyelids look even and smooth. These too colours work well together to make it even and add some difference as well. My swatches appear too washed out on my skin so I will re-take the swatches soon and re upload them so that you can…Read more

Mac Big Bounce Shadow in Black Diamond

Mac's Big Bounce shadows are limited edition from the Flighty Collection and I grabbed Black Diamond at Heathrow. At first I thought this would be a glossy eye shadow. It's consistency is quite different from paint pots. It's more gel-like than creamy, although you wouldn't define it as one. I'd say it were a thick gloss with microshimmer that dries to a powdery finish. It doesn't appear completely matte when it dries, but not glossy either. This creases very easily so using just this on the lid is pointless. You need to set…Read more

Models Own Loose Powder in Deep Mauve

Models Own is a brand that I stumbled across at Asos. I read their reviews and was curious to try their eye shadows and nail polishes. Their loose powder is the first one I ever owned. The shade Deep Mauve is a stunning blue based purple with microshimmer. The pigmentation is AMAZING and the coverage is so opaque, with just one stroke. Its not really a deep mauve. Over the lid, it comes off as a bright purple. The shimmers are blue, violet and silver mixed together, hence it also gives a blue…Read more

CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion

Covergirl LashBlastFusion was one of the first mascaras I had used. I'm not aware if its available in other colours but mine is in black. I love the shape, at the time when it came out, it was a nice change to see. It looks so pretty and I just love that hot purple! The mascara is thick and creamy in black. The wand is large with soft rubber bristles. It goes on very smoothly and very few clumps. I really don't like clumpy mascaras which make it too obvious, I like the…Read more
Mac Viva Glam II Lipstick

Mac Viva Glam II Lipstick

I got this lipstick when I was in my pale lips phase. Mac Viva Glam II is a satin finish and its goes on so smooth and feels so creamy! It's not my favourite shade but I use this when I want even bare lips and a bright gloss over it to stand out. It's part of the permanent line I believe. Its a lovely ash pink or beige pink. It has very subtle shimmer that is barely noticeable. I would say it's similar to Blankety. I wore this for 10 hours and…Read more
John Frieda Frizz Ease Shampoo and Conditioner

John Frieda Frizz Ease Shampoo and Conditioner

I'd been dying to try the John Frieda Frizz Ease range. I finally managed to get my hands on it a few months ago. To review it properly, I will need to explain what my hair is like. Needless to say but the review and results would be different if your hair is drastically different to mine. I have dry hair. Really dry hair but oily roots. In winters, static can make my hair stand up 90 degrees (happens when I'm taking off woollen jumpers). My hair is naturally wavy and fine. I…Read more
