Hello! I'm Amy and I am an aspiring Makeup Artist and love all things beauty and skincare! I love writing product reviews and would love to become a YouTube Vlogger. For me, makeup is about having fun and bringing out the person you want to be and have the empowerment and confidence to achieve anything you desire.
Ordered my Tarte Shape Tape Foundation on 26th November and still hasn’t arrived 😩 On a more positive note, my Smashbox order has come with 4 fab mini’s!! 😍 Thanks @GlamGeekClaire@GlamGeekTeam for the daily deals page! xx
✨If you love gloss, then you will probably this. However, I do not love gloss, yet I still buy it hoping the right one will change my mind 😂 It smells PHENOMENAL... like those cherry lip sweets you get - makes you get serious hunger vibes! This is not overally sticky, which I actually prefer it when it is as I think it lasts longer. The colour is highly pigmented and does look very striking, especially when layered over liquid lipstick. However, a coffee later and some convo it is literally none existent on your lips. Worse than that, if you are wearing this on its own, then it actually stainmore...s your lips, leaving a grim, uneven look of colour. If you are motivated to keep applying this every 30 mins then you will LOVE this. However, because I am not, I will probably give this to my gloss loving friend.
✨I absolutely LOVE this product! It’s so convenient to have 2in1 product, as it really does encourage you to do the 2 step double cleanse, rather than just do one cleanse and end up with breakouts (I am very guilty of this!). The balm turns to a really nice cleansing oil in a flash and only a little bit is needed to remove all of your makeup, including mascara, eyeshadow and eyeliner! Even though my skin is now acne prone, the oil does not aggravate any existing breakouts or encourage more. The cleansing milk is none foaming which I love, as I find foaming cleansers really dry my skin out. It’more...s a really nice consistency and does a great job of getting rid of any last traces of makeup, dirt and grime. It’s really handy when travelling too to save on 2 bottles of cleanser weighing you down. My only gripe is that it is £24, which I think is quite pricey, especially when the amounts in the tub probably don’t equal that of a full size cleanser. However, I will definitely buy again and continue to use it as it stops me being lazy and has really done wonders for my skin.
✨I bought this out of curiosity really to see how it compared to Sand&Sky’s Clay Mask, as this is very obvious ALDI have tried to create a dupe! The packaging is identical to S&S’s, both the box and the jar. I’m sorry to say though, the results are not identical! It applies nicely, but when it dries, it feels really plastic-y and is really difficult to remove - not good! When I did manage to get it off and with continued use, it made no difference with the clarity of my skin and certainly didn’t make it any brighter. On a positive note, you can see it suck out some oil on your T Zone once driemore...d due to the little dots that appear. This is not like S&S’s whereby you apply it and it’s grey and dries white (so you know when it’s ready to be removed), it applies white and dries white. Honestly, save yourself 8 quid and put it aside to save for S&S’s, you’ll be glad you did!
✨This is such a pretty palette and perfect for everyday use! All of the shades are super wearable and can be used to create a subtle, demure look, or use with a wet brush to add some drama. There is an equal mix of matte and shimmer shades and they blend together really well. The pigmentation isn’t out of this world, but sometimes you just want something that is easy to wear, especially if you’re in a rush in the morning and trying to apply your makeup and feed the cat at the same time 😂 It is so budget friendly and is a good alternative to Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Soft Glam palette. There ismore... zero fallout when applying it, so no tissues required! Everyone needs this palette in their lives!
Hi gals and guys 😊 I NEED HELP 😫 I have developed cystic acne in the last few months, which is just getting worse. I cannot use a lot of Salicylic Acid as I have a bad reaction (I used a face mask and it actually BURNED my skin, I had to go to the Dr’s to get it sorted) and my skin doesn’t like Benzoyl Peroxide. Can anyone suggest any good products which might help? xx
✨I am living for this brush! I’ve been after a new Crease Brush for a while and I would’ve normally used Morphe as a go to, but I needed it quickly and budget friendly. This performs as well as my Lime Crime and Spectrum Brushes for less than half the price! The bristles are really soft, which you can struggle with sometimes for synthetic brushes, which is really important to me as it’s important they are cruelty free. It applies shadow really well to the crease, with no fallout or hair loss. It also works really well to pack shadow onto the eyelid due to the density. I use mine both dry and wmore...et and it handles both amazingly. I shall definitely be looking at E.L.F.’s other brushes in their collection!
✨I’m a bit torn on this product... for some bizarre reason I have developed quite a lot of localised acne over the last few months and bought these to help with these. They do not work on cystic spots and they do nothing when I’ve got a big one brewing to reduce it in size, or to bring it to the surface. However, if it is just a pimple, they seem to suck all the nastiness out and half it in size. They stay on all night and you don’t have to pick lots of dots off your pillow the next morning! I would say these are fab if you have an unexpected breakout and need to get rid of whiteheads overnighmore...t, but if used for acne, you probably won’t see much difference.
✨This is such a great mask at such an affordable price of £1.50! 😊 The consistency is nice and thick and bubbles really quickly. It is very bubbly and this allows the ingredients to be quickly absorbed by your skin. When you rinse the bubbles off after 20 mins, you can already see the clarity of your pores and your skin looks refreshed and bright. With continued use, my pores are so clean and definitely reduced in size, especially on my nose. It smells amazing too! I was worried because some Primark products really don’t suit my skin, but this mask is nice and gentle. A definite if you have omore...ily skin and large pores!
