Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation

Urban Decay make killer eye shadows. This much is true. So when news came about a while ago that they’d brought out the above foundation – I reaaally wanted to try it. I recently treated myself to the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation with a voucher from work, so here’s my thoughts and some images…

NARS Dolce Vita Blush

There’s something about a NARS product that gets me excited. The luxe packaging, the velvety product and the beautiful colours inside just make them a pleasure to receive. I’ve got a few NARS blushers, and I’m always on the lookout for more. Dolce Vita is the latest to the collection, and it’s a little different…

Barry M Gelly Polish in Lychee

It’s funny, since I stopped biting my nails, I’ve favoured the more neutral of the nail lacquers out there. Whether it’s a shell pink or a boring beige, there’s something about a neutral nail that I love. Maybe because it adds a hint of classic, or maybe it’s because it makes my nails look longer…

L’Oreal 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil

 I’m always on the look out for a new cleanser. I’m not sure what it is about washing the daily grime away, but I absolutely love washing my face. This little treat is only £5.32 for 150ml, here. Firstly, I’ve been trialling this cleansing oil for the last two months and I’m amazed at how…

3 Step Tutorial | Peacock Eyes

There’s something about the combination of blue and purple that gives a smokey eye an edge, a difference. Recently I’ve been pushing myself to play with the untouched shades in my palettes, the deeper colours that usually get ignored in favour of the browns, golds and bronzes. This three step tutorial features shades from the…

KMS Silk Sheen Polishing Serum

I’ve got to let you in on a little secret. Whilst this little beauty of a product has appeared on my monthly favourites before, it’s yet to make an appearance on my blog. Until today. This little wonder products has been helping me achieve glossy, smooth locks for months now, so it’s about time I…

L’oreal Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser

L’Oreal Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser £9.99 here. I picked up the Skin Perfecting Correcting Day Moisturiser at the beginning of December as I’d been looking for a fairly inexpensive moisturiser to try out and this one caught my eye. It’s a pale pink cream that is light to apply, soaking into the skin quickly and…

Urban Decay Naked 3 – First Impressions

I was lucky enough to be given the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette for Christmas as part of my gifts from Matt. See my first impressions below, detailed swatches and review to follow! The third offering of the Urban Decay Naked palettes is similarly stocked with neutrals that my make-up collection craves. The Naked 3…

3 Step Tutorial | Modern Day Glamour

I’ve been wearing this look quite a lot this Winter. It’s a really simple look that literally takes three products and you’re good to go. 1. Taking a  pale shell shade, I blended this across the whole of my lid. The shadow I’m really loving at the moment is Benefit’s Longwear Shadow in Call My Bluff,…

Vo5 Refresh Me Quick

I do love a good dry shampoo. With the mornings getting darker, and the realm outside the duvet getting colder, extra minutes of sleep are precious. I never wash my hair in the morning, it takes waaay too long and drying it quickly ends up in a complete frizz ball! Dry shampoo is a lucky…
