Beauty – My Max Factor Makeup Mini Haul 

I absolutely love buying new makeup. It is one of my guilty pleasures and one of the only things I will justify spending money on for myself as makeup makes me feel more human after days on end of sleepless nights.  If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know that I’ve been on the hunt for the ‘perfect’ foundation for quite some time without much success. It’s early...

Beauty – Revlon Colorstay Foundation Review 

Like many other women, I’m on the hunt for the holy grail of foundations. I’ve not got a huge budget when it comes to makeup, so as much as I’d love the high end brands I can’t justify the cost. When I saw that Revlon’s Colorstay was apparently a dupe for the Ester Lauder Doublewear foundation I figured I had nothing to lose. I had picked up a sample of...

Beauty – L’Oréal Infallible Range Review 

I have been using the L’Oréal infallible primer for a few months now and love it, so when I went to repurchase my maybelleine foundation last week and came across a 3 for 2 offer in Boots on L’Oréal I decided to take a chance and try out the new infallible total cover foundation (which was also reduced by £2 down to £7.99 at the time). For my third product...

Soap and Glory Makeup Review 

What seems like a complete age ago, on Black Friday, I treated myself to the Extrava-Glam-Za makeup set from Soap & Glory. Over the past few weeks I’ve been using it and I’m pretty impressed.  Sexy Mother Pucker lip plumping glosses in Candy Queen and Plumsup  I already knew I loved soap and glory lip glosses. Some people complain about their slightly overpowering sweet scent and say they’re sticky but...

Beauty – Maybelleine Dream Velvet Foundation Review

I’m a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to makeup and once I find something I like I don’t tend to change it for a long while. I started using No7 stay perfect foundation a good while ago and other than the price being a little higher than I can strictly justify (it’s only £15 but I do have 3 kids!), it’s served me well.  When I...

Mini Beauty Review – Essence Eyeshadow 

Ok so I have like a massive backlog of beauty reviews I want/need to do after a big (well, big for me, probably tiny for most) beauty shop I did on my return from Devon last week. However, I just had to shove this one to the top of the waiting list because this little gem cost me *drumroll* £1.00! Yes, one measly pound that even I can afford when...
