Illamasqua "To Be Alive" | Shine Lipgloss in Iridesce



A brand I was so unbelievably hyped up about when they first launched many, many moons ago. Their bold, brash colours and the tagline "Unleash your Alter Ego" appealed to everything I wanted to be. I'm a huge fan of the teal 'Apocalips' lipstick and their 'Infinity' Precision Gel Liner, not to mention their equally beautiful cream blushers.

However last year saw me turn away from Illamasqua. It felt like they were turning their back on everything they knew and chasing those neutrals. Let me be clear, there's nothing wrong with neutrals, but when everyone has their own line packed full of them, they become pretty tedious, pretty fast. So naturally, I lost interest in Illamasqua thinking I'd lost them for good.

MAC MSF Gold Deposit | The Highlighter for Sun-kissed Skin



I don't know what it is about them, but as time goes by I seem to accumulate all manner of pots and pans of the stuff. But every morning as I go through my daily routine, the ever-growing highlighter section of my makeup drawers remains untouched. I'm really terrible for missing out that all-important highligher step, but since returning from my holiday in Dubai, I've had this sudden urge to get using them!

MAKEUP TREND | How to Create The Under Eye Dot with Eyeliner


Starting to get back into the swing of blogging and maintaining my various social media profiles, whilst working in a full time job at the same time! I've done it all before but it was quite a while ago and I'd completely gotten out of the routine.

Anyway, those who also follow my Instagram account will have seen a photo I put up a week or so ago, accompanied with a promise to blog about my makeup routine. Over two hundred of you liked the photo, so I thought I'd better get my act together and make good on that promise!

REVIEWS // The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask



Like many of us in the blogosphere, I'd been hearing an awful lot of good things about The Bodyshop's Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask and was just itching to try it out. Although at first I have to admit I thought it was a strange bouncy version of, well, a sleeping mask! Needless to say I was a little disappointed to find out it wasn't some kind of bizarre sleeping contraption, but actually a supposedly useful mask for your face.
