Amateur beauty guru
I enjoy using makeup I love the creativity that comes with every look and there’s no limit to what look you can achieve if you try hard enough.
Mostly post reviews on products I enjoy as I find it hard to find a product I hate that I’ve purchased <3
The foundation feels super lightweight on the skin, It applied nicely and easily I found it worked best with a mix of both a brush and a sponge to apply it (apply with brush and finish off with sponge). I found it difficult to apply at first but slowly got the hang of it as at first I was either spreading it too much around the skin or not enough and getting patches and streaks.
The foundation did have some creasing after I applied it, mainly around the eyes and nose which is usually standard for a lot of foundations and concealers if you don’t set them straight away, I usually don’t experimore...ence creasing with foundations however I did get a bit with this one but I’m sure it would be an easy fix with some heavy duty setting powder!
It is quite a buildable foundation however it creases and looks more cakey the more you build it up so best to keep it to one light layer to avoid it creasing on your skin and ruining the rest of your makeup. However it still looks nice built up as it is more of a full coverage finish.
The foundation has a strong perfume scent I thought it was quite strange as I’ve never really seen scented foundations however I quite liked it as I like my products to be scented it smelled super fresh and clean.
The foundation was a strong medium coverage I wouldn’t say it was full coverage or light coverage it was in between so perfect for those hot summer days where you want a decent amount of coverage but don’t want to be a cake face
Overall the foundation was nice however I just don’t think it suited my skin type or skin needs but I feel like it would work really well on drier skin types who prefer less than full Coverage and love a super lightweight feel too their foundation!
This is a review on the new Dior sauvage as I couldn’t find the post for it.
Firstly the perfume smells amazing!!! I do feel this one has a lot more of a citrus scent to it compared to the original but both smell just as good as each other.
The smell once sprayed lasts for days on your clothes it’s staying power is definitely top notch so you won’t ever have to re spray it. It’s definitely good value for money as the bottle will probably last you forever.
I like to put one squirt on one wrist then from that wrist apply it to my other wrist and on my neck, because if you spray too much of tmore...his perfume it does get extremely overwhelming due to how strong the scent is but it’s definitely worth it!
The bottle is gorgeous a super plane but effective navy blue with a nice lid it’s quite a thick glass strong bottle so I don’t think it would break any time soon but I don’t want to test that theory 🤭
The perfume has “spicy mandarin, sandalwood and Tonka bean” scents to it you can definitely smell the citrus and the sandalwood it smells really nice I like a spicy scent in men’s perfumes/after shave it makes it smell super refreshing and clean.
Overall I love this perfume/ aftershave it smells amazing definitely nothing like anything I’ve ever smelled before it’s scent is next level amazing!! If you haven’t smelled it before definitely run out to your local Dior counter ASAP cause I can guarantee you will fall in love with it on the spot 😍
the mascara wand is really nice it grips every lash during application so your lashes look fuller and longer with minimal effort! Even the tiny lashes you can never grab hold of were coated with the blackest of black mascara formula which made my naturally light coloured lashes look amazing and stand out.
the formula isn’t drying on the lashes it doesn’t leave your lashes feeling hard and horrible, it feels super lightweight and like “my lashes but better” not clumpy or crusty, you also don’t have to worry about looking like a panda a few hours after application as the mascara doesn’t transfmore...er or crumble all over your face which is a massive bonus! No more worrying
the Mascara lasts all day looking as good as first application on both the bottom and top lashes. The packaging is really nice it’s a heavy metal sort of feeling luxurious packaging different from classic plastic packaging for mascara which is nice
Unlike most of too faced products the mascara doesn’t smell like sweet peaches or chocolates so if your not a fan of scented beauty products you can still use this cult favourite mascara!
The mascara also dried quite fast so you could get on with the rest of your makeup without worrying you might mess it up
overall I love this mascara so far and definitely Recommend everyone tries it if they haven’t already it’s definitely worth the hype it’s an amazing mascara and it’s definitely worth the money
I won this lipstick in “review of the week” and so far I’m loving it, it’s a sheer coverage lipstick and the colour is a really nice orangey red colour which looks gorgeous on in this summery weather.
The lipstick has no scent which is nice for those of you who prefer scentless beauty products! You get a lot of product in the component about 2 inches of lipstick which is great as you won’t in out fast!
It’s the perfect size for your hand bag and you can screw the lipstick up to get more product rather than sharpen in which is very convenient.
The shape of the lipstick makes it easy to applymore... to the lips and get every edge and corner perfectly! I love the packaging it’s simple but effective it looks really nice on my dresser with all my other lipsticks.
It feels super lightweight on the lips and is more of a slippy consistency rather than creamy or matte so you can barely even feel your wearing anything which is great as you know it won’t be drying out your lips.
It lasts a while on the lips without wearing away so you don’t have to apply it too much or too often especially as it’s quite sheer coverage so no one will notice it wearing away in the centre as all lipsticks usually do eventually.
Overall I love this lipstick and can’t wait to continue using it throughout these hotter days 🌞
This is my new favourite palette of all time the pigment is insane and the shimmers are so pretty.
You get 42 eyeshadows in a wide range of colours for only £42 which is great value for money! Aswell as 3 highlighters which are super pretty on the skin!
This palette is perfect for all skin tones as there are three Highlighters in lighter shades and deeper shades and because the shadows are so pigmented they show up super bright and vibrant on all skin tones!
The matte shades blend super easily and nicely and don’t go patchy even if you use them on their own or on top of an eyeshadow Base, more...the shimmers are super blinding even when you apply them without spraying setting spray on your brush first which is always a bonus if you prefer to apply your shadows with your fingers as there is no fussing about to make them appear more pigmented!
All the shades appear super bright on the skin and the colours are super pigmented the colour pay off is the exact same in the pan as it is when applied to the skin which is great as you don’t end up applying a shadow and it not looking the way you wanted.
These shadows are perfect for blending on or packing on to the eyes and are super easy to use for both beginners and experienced makeup artists.
The shadows last all day on the eyes and don’t crease or go patchy this palette is super versatile and can be used for any makeup style, full glam, natural or creative it’s a perfect palette for beginners!
Overall I love this palette and can’t get enough of it I pair it with my plouise base for super vibrant pigmented looks and another bonus is the packaging is gorgeous it even comes with a big mirror so perfect for travel!
Firstly the foundation match was really good it was slightly more tanned than my natural skin colour which is the type of match I like as I’m such a pale milk bottle and will do anything for a bit of a tan.
It applied nicely with a damp beauty blender and blended out evenly and with no effort at all! The foundation dried down quickly to a soft matte finish not overly matte to the point your skin still looks dried out but to a soft natural matte finish! All though the foundation dried down fast id say there was definitely still plenty time to blend it out and apply it to your skin before it smore...ets in place so you won’t be left looking patchy or un-blended.
the foundation is definitely true to its lightweight claims I’ve never had a foundation feel so light and un-noticeable on my skin! I couldn’t feel the foundation on my skin like I normally can! (I usually get a horrible thick heavy feeling on my skin with a lot of foundations) my pores usually feel heavy and clogged especially round my nose area when I wear a lot of foundations too but I didn’t get that at all with this foundation!
It isn’t Cakey on the skin either which is yet another bonus with this foundation. the one thing I would say with this foundation is that once I applied one layer of foundation all over my skin it was more of a light coverage and once built up to two layers it was medium coverage so I’d definitely say it isn’t a straight up medium coverage foundation but more of a light/medium. However it does have a really nice light coverage finish and looks as good as a full coverage foundation once your concealer is applied! It looks super natural and not cakey on the skin either, it didn’t crease round my eyes or nose and looked super natural.
Overall I really like this foundation and think it would be a great foundation to use in the summer as it doesn’t feel heavy on your skin and won’t melt off in the sun it’s nice and lightweight and perfect for everyday use!
I was on the look out for a really good eye cream for quite a while when I finally came accross this one by liz Earle!
Firstly the packaging feels heavy and luxurious not cheap at all which I love seen as I paid £45 for the eye cream! It sounds like a lot of money but it’s definitely worth it!
It feels so silky and moisturising around the eyes it’s a thick eye cream which I love as you can feel it soaking into your skin and working it’s magic! I highly recommend you apply it the way the instructions tell you as it just enhances your experience of using it, it feels so relaxing and spa likemore...!
The smell isn’t the best but you can’t smell it once it’s been applied it just smells like the plants they use in it which I don’t mind.
My eyes look brighter and my dark circles have disappeared since using this! My eye bags have almost completely gone and I look so much more awake! The results feel almost instant you see a difference in less than a week which I love as I don’t have the patients to use a product for months before seeing a difference!
Overall I love the eye cream and can’t get enough of it, it’s definitely worth the money!
This lipstick is so nice! Can’t get enough of it, I have the shade 05 loyalist and it’s such a pretty cool undertoned nude shade I love it!
It really does have superstaying power it is almost impossible to remove which is exactly what I was looking for cause nothing gives me more fear than walking round with lipstick that’s worn off and gone patchy 😱
It doesn’t feel drying on the lips it feels slightly wet on your mouth but if you tap it with your finger it’s completely dry! It does take a while to dry down but once it’s dry it doesn’t budge the whole day I didn’t have to re apply it oncmore...e! Even after I’d ate my food it was still completely intact!
It has a nice subtle vanilla scent to it which isn’t overly strong I do like my lipsticks to smell of vanilla but I know others may not so If you aren’t a fan of scents I’d say you could probably still get along with this liquid lippy!
Overall I love the formula and can’t get enough of it! Definitely recommend
