Hello! I'm Amy and I am a Consultant for The Body Shop at Home and an aspiring Makeup Artist and love all things beauty and skincare! I love writing product reviews and I’ve recently started my own beauty Vlog on YouTube called Amestarz Beauty, which I’m having so much fun with! 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.
✨This Lip Liner is very similar to the L’Oréal Colour Riche ones. It was one of the first ones I bought when I first started to play with makeup.
The pigmentation is terrible 😐 I have a dark pink shade and the colour comes off very sheer. There are lots of shades available, but this is no good if the pigment isn’t there!
Maybelline is definitely not a cruelty free brand, so I would not make a purchase from them again based on this.
I actually found this lurking in my dressing table drawer with a L’Oréal one and haven’t used it for about a year now, which shows how rubbish it is!
On top ofmore... all of that, I find it expensive at £5, when I have lip liners such as Collection’s Lip Definers, which are only £3, and work much better!
Big no from me.
✨Probably one of the worst Lip Liners I own!
The pigmentation is terrible 😐 It literally looks like sheer colour has been smeared around your mouth. There are lots of shades available, but this is no good if the pigment isn’t there!
Also, L’Oreal are definitely not cruelty free which is something I care passionately about.
I actually found this lurking in my dressing table drawer and haven’t used it for about a year now, which shows how rubbish it is!
On top of all of that, I find it expensive at £7, when I have lip liners such as Collection’s Lip Definers, which are only £3, and work mumore...ch better!
Big no from me.
✨I love that I’ve found this Eye Cream! 😍
Even though I’ve got really oily skin, my under eyes are so dry and can sometimes be very painful and tight. Since using this, I’ve had no eye dryness whatsoever 😊
The texture is very rich, but absorbs really easily into the skin.
Since using, my dark circles have definitely improved and my under eyes feel soft.
The packaging is super cute and looks fab in my bathroom!
This is quite possibly one of the best Eye Creams I’ve ever used! I’m definitely going to be trying more products from Saturday Skin!
✨I chose this in one of my Latest in Beauty boxes 😊 I have shade Sweetest Thing which is a rose gold glitter.
The polish is so packed with glitter it’s untrue! You only need one coat for full coverage. Unlike most other glitter polishes, it comes off really easily, without you having to scrub and scrub.
It also dries really quickly and doesn’t get clumpy on the nail, which I find a lot with gel polishes.
I’ve had mine now for just under a year and it’s going strong! I’ve never seen this out and about, which is a shame because I’d like to see more in the flesh before buying more, but I willmore... definitely be looking out for more online!
✨The Body Shop Peels are so underrated! More people need to know about this because in truth, it really is that good! If you need further proof, head over to my 1 minute review video and you will see! 😍
This is a 2-3 times a week essential for your skin. It works by massaging for 20 seconds on dry, clean skin. After this, you will literally see all of the dead skin and impurities lifted from your face on your hands! You can also use this on your feet, knees and elbows to make them softer.
As a top tip, because this is a youth enhancing product, it is a lot denser than the other peeps, whimore...ch means it’s a little bit stickier. To avoid it getting stuck on any peach fuzz, wash it off with a muslin cloth or E.L.F. ‘s Mask off sponges.
You need this product in your life - you won’t regret it!
✨I bought this brush as a back up for when I don’t have time to do my brows in the morning and I have to do them at work 🤦🏽♀️
Budget wise, it’s very good, which is what initially drew me to it. I like the simplicity clear see through look, as I think it looks quite sleek.
However, the brush itself is far too thick to be able to sculpt the brows. I always use Pommade, and the thickness of the brush just translates to far too much product on your brows. It also makes it hard to shape and construct my brows and I just look like I’ve got a mono brow (minus the middle filled in) 😂
Definite nmore...o from me!
✨This. Is. Everything!!! 😍😍
I have always steered clear of facial oils as with having acne probe skin, every face oil I’ve tried always makes me breakout. However, this oil is different... it actually contains salicylic acid, which actually helps to exfoliate and unclog pores, whilst keeping you skin soft and supple with the oil.
The bottle is HUGE and lasts for ages. It is pricey, but you only need a tiny amount to do your whole face.
This is a definite no no if you have got dry skin, but if you have acne or oily skin, this is your saviour! It has actually cleared my skin up dramaticallmore...y, whilst keeping it hydrated.
Even better, it’s cruelty free too!! 😍😍
✨This setting spray is everything! 😍 I love that it truly is continuous - you could literally empty the can in one spray if you wanted to 😂 It really helps with spraying your whole face so you don’t miss an inch, without leaving it splotchy and patchy.
It really does increase the longevity of your makeup and make sure it stays all day. It’s also really handy when you want to wet an eyeshadow brush to increase the pigment of the product.
The can lasted me about 2 - 3 months, with use nearly every day, which I think is reasonable.
I also have Jeffree Star’s version, which I will review shomore...rtly!
✨Ugh, this product is so nice, is so frustrating I can’t buy it again! 😭
This Lippie is the mattest I’ve ever seen from a bullet lipstick whilst in the component, it looks absolutely stunning. It surprised me that when applying it was not drying at all, and was really creamy and easy to apply. I applied it at 9am in the morning and did not retouch in the day, and it was still there at 7pm! Talk about longevity! The colour is SO pigmented it is beautiful, words just don’t do it justice! The packaging is amazing and looks so sleek. It’s a really weighty piece and feels so luxe - I especially lmore...ove the lips where the join is.
So why wouldn’t I purchase again when everything sounds amazing? Well, stupidly I thought because the product was so expensive (£36) I assumed it would be cruelty free - a silly assumption on my part! I am so upset that Pat charges a fortune for her products, yet still chooses to sell in China.
Another reason I can’t purchase again in the packaging. Don’t get me wrong, it looks freakin’ amazing, but it so bad for the environment. It comes in a plastic pouch, filled to the brim with plastic sequins. All of this just ends up in the bin and I can’t see many people reusing it.
So, the moral story for myself, is do proper research before making a purchase. I am so gutted because the product is so beautiful, but harms animals and the environment in the process.
