Every so often a foundation comes along and takes you by surprise and considering this offering from NYX costs €8.50, I was really surprised by the quality, longevity and over all appearance of the foundation.

When it comes to liquid lipsticks it seems there isn’t a brand out there that hasn’t tried it’s hand at creating the perfect product. From high end to budget brands, they all have their own range of liquid lipsticks, with varying levels of success. However, when it comes to liquid lipsticks, in my eyes the […]

Cocoa Brown Kind Shampoo and Conditioner


When it comes to shampoo and conditioner, I am very picky about what I use on my hair. As far as I am concerned, your hair is your crowing glory, so you need to be kind to it and use products that aren’t going to strip it of it’s own natural goodness. Normally I tend […]

Knowing what products you can and can’t use during pregnancy is a complete minefield.

Even the Kardashians themselves, the catalyst for the heavily contoured look, are backing away from the contouring powders and […]

NYX Micro eyebrow pencil


Brows can really make or break a look. There is nothing worse than seeing someone with eyebrows so drawn on that they look like to big bits of black electrical type have been applied above their eyes!!! When heading out at night, I really love a defined brow,  and tend to use the Inglot AMC […]

L’Oreal Pureology Shampoo and conditioner


When it comes to shampoo and conditioner I have a long list of things I expect for it to get my seal of approval. Lets call a spade a spade here, washing and drying your hair is painful, so you want to make sure that when you do give your mop a scrub, you end […]
