Beauty review: Mac lipstick

I’ve been trying to decide which type of red lipstick looks best. Red Mac lipstick to be specific.  I’ve been trialling a more orange based red – Lady Danger alongside a blue based red -Russian red.  The contestants!

Beauty review: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid

I bought these liquid lipsticks on impulse a few weeks ago.  The colours attracted me, they looked like really pretty nude shades. I bought “Nude flush” and “Nude thrill” Overall, after trying them I wasn’t massively impressed. The texture is a little streaky without the colour payoff you’d expect, you have to build to get… Continue reading Beauty review: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid

Fashion review: Havaianas

 I bought myself some Havaianas last summer. They’ve been abroad with me a few times so I feel like I’ve road tested them well enough.  They’re great and worth the extra money than your usual high street flip flops.  The print hasn’t rubbed off from the insole, they’ve not cracked or split. And they haven’t… Continue reading Fashion review: Havaianas

Beauty review: Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish

Beauty Review: Magnitone Vibra-sonic

This is probably one of the most honest posts I’ll ever write. I’ve been suffering from Acne. I’ve had it for about 7 years and at times I’ve been deeply depressed because of it.  It’s been proper cystic red raw angry acne that even the thickest layer of makeup struggled to cover.  Those of you… Continue reading Beauty Review: Magnitone Vibra-sonic
