Biggest Haul Ever

You know when you get a sudden impulse to go shopping? That “oh, I haven’t splurged in a while” feeling, and before you know it have bought the entire shop? Well, that moment of madness happened to me and over the past week have accumulated rather a lot because of it. So, I thought it would only […]

Best Budget Brushes

When I think back to what affordable brushes used to be like, I quiver; foundation streaks and unblended eyeshadow were all too common. Since then, the drugstore has come on leaps and bounds, and I’m just not interested in pricey brushes anymore. Sponge tipped applicators and corse, rough hairs are definitely a thing of the […]

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. I stumbled across this powder from NYX Cosmetics under ‘recommended products’ somewhere unknown on the Boots website, and people are absolutely raving about it. This little pot of goodness has become my new favourite, and has wiped my Smashbox powder well and truly out of the picture. […]

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 […]

Most Loved Moisturiser

I trust you all had a lovely and well deserved Easter weekend break. Mine was of course filled with chocolate eggs and not one, not two, but three roast dinners – blimey. I crawled back to the office today, still feeling completely full, along with a food baby, and reality hit me once again. However, […]

Affordable Daytime Spring Makeup Tutorial

Spring has officially sprung. Easter Day began with a rather groggy feeling after I realised I lost a whole one hour of sleep due to the clocks jumping forward. However, a surge of motivation came to me after an incredibly lazy morning filled with chocolate eggs and films. So I decided to have a clear […]

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. Amongst the craziness, there was […]

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 […]

February has whizzed by, before you know it daffodils will be blooming. Spring does make me very happy though. I’m bored of waking up to dark mornings now. This month has been jam packed with excitement and hard work; the ultimate highlight being my first glug of Chardonnay after a whole 6 weeks dry (does that make me […]

Real Techniques Brush Collection

Real Techniques brushes *long sigh*, aren’t they stunning? My RT collections consists of thirteen brushes (unlucky for some). I’ve never actually counted, and that odd number is bugging me now. But these are probably my favourite brushes of all time. I feel I’ve tried and tested so many other brands and I just keep going back […]

W7 Pallettes | Review, Swatches & UD Dupes

My obsession with eyeshadows continues to grow, and as a result, so does my collection. It’s becoming a bad, scary habit but I just can’t get enough. I started this beauty blog with just one palette in my life, now I have enough to last yonks. The newest additions to my stash are four palettes from […]

MAC Purple Eyeshadows | Review

Just look at them – aren’t they beautiful. I’ve been reaching for purple shadows more and more recently, and these from MAC are my favourite. I feel like most people can be a little scared when it comes to not only wearing purple eyeshadows, but wearing them well. But, with these shadows it’s super easy. My […]
