Spring Drugstore Challenge | Affordable Makeup products

Yes, you can slay on a budget!!!! You can get that super snatched look without breaking the bank. It is so easy to fall into the trap and think that you have to spend bucketloads on makeup to get that glam look but that isn’t true. I know, i know social media does not help matters, and I have to admit that I have bought some expensive makeup products just because I saw it on YouTube. I set myself a challenge to create a spring makeup look, using products which cost £10 and under each.…

Now, this is something I have just recently learnt and you know i have to share it with y’all. We have been using MAC’s Fix + spray all wrong!!! What?

6 Products that I am sampling | MakeUp Forever, Makeup Geek, Urban Decay…

Ok, I am just going to come out and say it, I like samples. Yes, I am that person who if they are giving out free drinks at the train station will take one and circle back to get another with a different facial expression hoping that they won’t recognise me.

Not only because it is free but because it allows me to test…

The British Beauty Industry Does Not ‘See’ Women of Colour…Or does it?

I was going to write a scathing post about the British Beauty industry not seeing or recognising women of colour specifically dark skin tones, however my opinion has changed slightly. I live in London and I love my city. London is an international city and it is a melting pot of different cultures and races which I love. You meet people from different walks of life from just walking through London. People with different backgrounds, experiences and perceptions on life. It is truly a multi-cultural city. However, when I was growing up, the British beauty industry…

The Beauty Blender | Review and Top Tips

I am sure that you have heard of the Beauty Blender, the egg-shaped sponge that people use to apply their makeup. If you haven’t, where have you been?!

Finally, I caved in and bought one to test it out and see what the hype was about. Should you guys buy it or is it a waste of money? How do you use it to…

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place | Foundation Review

I have oily skin as you may or may not know, and I have been after a matte foundation for the longest time.  One morning I looked like a dry mess. A dry mess? Yes my oily skin was going through a weird dry phrase, and I didn’t know what to do about it. I was so used to dealing with excess oil. The little cream I put on had vanished and my face was dryyyyyyy. I wandered into Boots near my office (yes, I went on the tube looking like that!), looking for a…

American Makeup products | 6 ‘Hyped’ Products in my makeup collection

Hey guys, I am back after a short break…well it was more like a recharging of my batteries and spending time with my family. My daughter is growing up so fast! Can’t she just stay small?! *sigh* Anyways back to business, this post is about the U.S Makeup products that I currently have in my collection. These products are from the U.S and I either got them by shipping them internationally or buying them from UK stores that stock U.S products. Most of them I bought after watching my favourite Youtubers use them. I will…
