Cleansing Oils | Do they work?

Cleansing your face with oils sounds weird doesn’t it? The thought of rubbing oil on my face to remove makeup sounded like someone just told me to rub fried chicken over my body! I just didn’t get it. How does it work? I have oily skin so why would I rub more oil onto my face?! I was completely baffled by the whole idea. I am used to my skin feeling squeaky clean after I wash it, and I mean squeaky and tight! That is my clean feeling. To my ladies with dry skin I…

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation | First Impressions and Review

This foundation has been on my to-buy list for a long time, but when push came to shove I would buy another foundation. I think subconsciously I thought it would be the same as my NARS foundation, which is not matte for me at all. What has recently attracted me to this foundation was the new release of new shades which were great for my melanin rich beauties. When a brand brings out 40 shades of a foundation, catering for the fairest of ladies to the darkest chocolate ladies, I am sold. Alot of us…

14 Black Girl Friendly Concealers | If you don’t know now you know!

Let’s be real here, getting the right under-eye concealer is like finding the right accessory for an outfit. It is veryyyy important. It has taken me a while to work out what I want from my under-eye concealers, similar to when I made the decision about what I wanted from a relationship. Like I said, this is important to me, don’t judge me! I love my concealer to be 2 shades lighter than my foundation shade. I don’t do 3 or more shades lighter, but girl if that is what floats your boat, then do you.…

Laura Mercier Medium Deep Translucent Setting Powder Review

I have been after this Laura Mercier Translucent powder in Medium Deep the moment it came out in the US. I have literally been begging Laura (Yeah, we are on a first name basis haha!) to bring it out in the UK. Ever since I tried the Laura Mercier translucent powder. I was sold! Completely sold (read my review here).  Now, while I was waiting for the ‘chosen one’ i.e the setting powder to arrive, I read so many reviews about this powder. If I could roll my eyes a thousand times, I would. People were…

The best UK Beauty Blogs

I love reading lists of the best beauty blogs. I find it personally inspiring to see people killing it in the beauty industry, because I know how hard they work to produce good content week after week. And these bloggers keep it consistent, which is not easy. Trust me.  However, let’s be real,  I really dislike reading lists upon lists of ‘great’ beauty blogs with no women or person of colour present in the list. It makes me shake my head, like what?! Are you telling me that there are no people of colour doing great…

My Anti-haul – Things I will not be buying!

Hey guys, so I saw this on Youtube on Jennie Jenkins channel and I thought it would be fun to do.

Here are some products released this Spring/Summer that I will not be buying.  *** Becca X Chrissy Teigan Highlighter palette Ummmmmmmm is it just me or this palette looks EXACTLY like the Jaclyn Hill X Becca…

I love Spring! | Laura Mercier, ABH, ASOS and more

Hey guys, I am going through the motions when it comes to leaving Winter behind. I love my vamp colours and hiding behind layers and layers of clothes. As the weather gets warmer, I am starting to realise that I need to switch up my skincare regime and my makeup products. Also I need to lose a couple of pounds in weight. I will talk about my weight gain and hopefully my weight loss story in another post. What I do love about Spring is the colours. The pretty pastels, the golds (well I wear…
