Brand Spotlight : Benefit Cosmetics

I’ve decided that it is about time I started a new blog series on The Beautiful Truth. For the next few weeks/months, I am going to focus on my favourite products from different brands. I will also throw in a clanger or two if there are items I am not overly fond of by a particular brand. For my first brand spotlight, I have decided to take a look at some products from Benefit cosmetics. Benefit is a brand that I have actually never featured on the blog. If I am honest, for a very long time, I thought Benefit was extremely over priced for what it was. I think this sentiment…

New Autumn releases from Mac

The Autumn is by far my favourite time of the year. As a teacher, I see September as the start of a new year, rather than January. For me, September is all about fresh starts, new clothes and of course the Autumn beauty releases. At this time of year I am ready to leave behind the pink lips and barely there makeup and instead I am ready to embrace bold plum toned lips and a slightly more intense makeup look. This September Mac have really ramped up their new collection releases with both permanent and Limited Edition releases. As Mac collections have a tendency to fly off the shelves quickly,…

Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow gel review

When it comes to my eyebrows, I am very picky as to what I use. The last thing I want, is to look like I have two pieces of black tape for brows! For me less is always more when it comes to brows and as a result I am a big fan of a good brow pencil, but sometimes, something a little bit stronger is needed. Enter the Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow gel Brow Gel is a product that, when used correctly can give a fabulously sculpted brow. When used with a heavy hand however, it can give a rather full on scouse brow appearance. This may work for some people,…

Eyebrows on Fleek with the Inglot AMC brow gel

Ready to have some seriously fabulous looking brows? Well if you’re a fan of sculpted looking brows, then Inglots latest release is going to be right up your street. This summer saw Inglot reaching out into the brow gel market with their new range of AMC brow gels. Available in 12 different shades, I picked the shade number 17. I found that this was the closest to my natural colouring, without looking too ashy.Even with such a large range of colours,  I do feel that if you have a  very light colouring, you may have trouble finding a shade to match your own colouring. So make sure to go into the…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Review

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow wiz While I love putting my makeup on, I absolutely hate doing my eyebrows. They just take ages and are no fun at all. Why wasn’t I blessed with fabulous brows? Why I ask you? I have tried so many brow products lately, some with good success, some like the Anastasia brow Genius are just way too much hassle. I have been on the hunt for the Anastasia dip brow pomade and the Make Up For Ever Aqua brow for a while now, but they are always so out. So on an impulse a few weeks ago I bought the much raved about Anastasia Brow wiz. I…
