NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick

I was a complete liquid lipstick virgin before biting the bullet and purchasing this one from NYX Cosmetics. I had only the reviews from fellow beauty blogger and YouTubers to go by, so I was restrained and only bought the one to trial. I’m not one for spending time perfecting my lippy, so I was […]

March Empties | Clarina

Afternoon ladies. Good news! The video I waited 14 hours to upload has finally been successful. Instead of my usual ‘monthly favourites’ video, I decided to switch things up a bit and go through a few empties I’ve accumulated over the last few weeks instead. After all, empties videos are one of my favourites to watch […]

NYX Cosmetics HD Studio Finishing Powder

Oily gals listen up, I’ve found a cure.

Breathe a huge sigh of relief…it’s Friday.

MAC Lipstick Collection

Aah MAC lipsticks. My obsession. A product that I’m proud to give top position on my acrylic makeup storage. My first ever was Ruby Woo, probably one of MACs most popular shades, the rest just seemed to follow. My collection now consists of over ten MAC lippies; I have a couple of duplicates which I didn’t feel needed […]

I received the most lovely request in my email inbox a couple of weeks ago to write a post discussing everything I do to care for my hair; my routine, what products I like to use, how I grow it etc. etc. – a huge compliment considering I’m very lazy when it comes to hair. […]

Get To Know Emma | Featured Blogger Friday

My patience has been completely tried and tested this week. Very naively, I assumed moving from WordPress.com to a self hosted site would be a simple hop over, how wrong was I. Countless conversations later with the incredibly helpful WordPress Happiness Engineers, here we are. Most of my content has been shifted across and I […]

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. I often concentrate on reviewing products I love, so I thought i’d change it up a bit and talk about some products that just haven’t worked out for me. I occasionally purchase […]

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

This week has been absolutely jam-packed, it’s been a constant roll of one thing, to another, to another. From planning blog posts & YouTube videos, to attending the largest Wedding Fair in the UK, to general catching-up-with-life duties. With a huge sigh relief, it’s over for a little while now.

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. I eventually decided to take the plunge and as expected haven’t put it down since (this means […]
