The Flawless Drugstore Base | Oily Skin

Cast yourselves back to my ‘How To Achieve A Flawless Base‘ video. You may have noticed that I used a few pricey products to create my typical daytime face. This routine is something I did most days, so as a result, I was getting through some rather luxurious products more quickly than I would have […]

Disappointing Products | Clarina

As a beauty blogger, there’s nothing more that I love than experimenting with new products – but it isn’t always rainbows and fairies.

Origins Skin Refining Oil | Review

This product has been staring at me on the counter at Boots screaming “buy me” for months now, but the price tag has always put me off. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever spent so much on a single skincare item.

Morphe 35o Palette | Review, Swatches & Dupes

The Morphe 35o Color Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette (whoa, what a mouthful) is very popular. It’s in such high demand, and as a result is sold out on their official website 90% of the time. It continues to be restocked (but in small quantities it seems), and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one. They’re limiting it to one palette for each […]
