British Brands doing BB Cream: Boots No 7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream SPF 15 Review

Boots-No-7-BB-Cream-Review.jpg

BB Creams, originally an Asian phenomenon have seriously taken over…well everything.  Lots of Western brands are now adding SPF to their tinted moisturisers and calling it a BB Cream launching their own versions of BB creams. In my opinion a true BB cream should be able to work as a foundation, concealer, SPF, moisturiser (if your skin isn’t too dry) and have skin healing properties (a lot of Asian brand offer a ‘whitening/brightening’ element too, […]

Magentic Nail Polish! Boots No. 17 Magnetized Nail Polish Swatches and Review

Boots-No.-17-Magnetized-Nail-Polish.jpg

I am sure many of you have already heard of Magnetic Nail Polish – these polishes contain very fine metallic particles and if you apply a magnet to them whilst they are still wet, they move around creating unique patterns. It’s a clever idea! Someone finally put it together, a bit like the Crackles we are all now used to seeing. A few brand offer magnetic polish, the ones I am looking at here are […]

Unberto-Giannini-Skily-Curls-.jpg

Regular readers will know that I have a perm at the moment and so have been looking everywhere for curl products. I have acquired quite a few (which I will review shortly!) but I recently went down to Boots and bought 2 Umberto Giannini products (2 for £7.50 at the moment!) to try. I quite like the Umberto Giannini’s slightly phallic range even though I am a posh shampoo kinda gal to be honest. But […]

Boots No. 17 Photo Flawless Foundation & Primer Review

No-17-Photo-Flawless-Foundation-Primer-.jpg

Boots No. 17′s newest primer and foundation is called Photo Flawless – who doesn’t want to look flawless in pictures eh? I do find that foundations (such as Make Up For Ever HD) make you look a bit ‘dead’ in real life. So how would this duo compare? I am madly into primers of all kinds so this teeny tube piqued my interest. 17 make-up artist Vanesa Guallar says: “Apply the silky formula all over […]
