Seventeen Instant Glow Cream Bronzer Review

Seventeen-Instant-Glow-Cream-Bronzer-Review.jpg

Do you remember that not too long ago, No. 17 became SEVENTEEN? I have to be honest, like an old person, I disregarded it and kept calling the brand, No. 17 because it had been that for so long, like how my mum called Cif Jif, or Mr C calls Snickers, Marathons.   Anyway, names aside, SEVENTEEN seems to have moved away from that dark blue packaging into sleeker black one although the feel is […]

Pixi-by-Petra-Make-Up-Review-Part-1_-Line-Relax-Serum-Illuminating-Tint-Conceal-and-Bronzer.jpg

Me and some make up brands spend too much time together; Pixi is one of those brands that I have tried odd pieces off, but don’t get a chance to use that often  Maybe because there are no counters near me, and I don’t get to play with the range any more.  However – I was sent a selection of products to try recently; Pixi is a range of skincare and make up created by […]

Hourglass-Illume-Creme-to-Powder-Bronzer-and-Blush-Duo-Review-and-Swatches.jpg

I have been looking for cosmetics that are quick and easy to use since I barely have time to apply make up these days. This Hourglass Illume product caught my eye as it does the bronzing and blushing all in one product! I also like the sound of their formulations.  I’m impressed by the Hourglass formulation – this product is; Oil free, paraben free, wax free, fragrance free, sulfate free, phthalate free, synthetic dye free.

Benefit Sun Beam Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter looks SUNNY!

Introducing...-Sun-Beam-—-Inbox.jpg

High Beam (pink), Moon Beam (gold) and now Sun Beam…could it be called anything else?! I like all the Benefit ‘beams’ but this is going to be my favourite I can tell!  It looks like a soft golden bronze on my skin will look like a highlighter that doesn’t look garish and on paler skin tones could look like a light bronze? We’ll see when it comes…. Love! This will cost £18.50 and is launched […]

Skinfood Powders: Red Orange Sun Pact SPF50+ & Seaweed Shining Bronzer Pact Review and Swatches

Skinfood-Powders_-Red-Orange-Sun-Pact-SPF50+-Seaweed-Shining-Bronzer.jpg

It’s nearly summer – although you can’t tell from the RAIN outside.  My skin is still as dry as anything but as it warms up, I find more and more use for pretty powders.  I purchased 2 powders from Skinfood a while ago but have only just had the chance to open them to give them a go! They are both sunny themed – one is a bronzer (pretty rare where Korean or indeed Asian […]

It’s always nice to try out a new make up brand, and I was recently sent these new products from Mii to try – Illuminating Face Base and Glamourous Trio Bronzing Face Finish: Mii is a brand that is about ‘having the confidence to be yourself’.  There is definitely a clean feeling about the range which I really like, and the actual packaging is in simple black.  First off, the Illuminating Face Base…

Click it! Jouer Cosmetics Review; SPF Bronzer, Lip Gloss and Lip Treatment

Jouer-Bronzer-Lip-Gloss-Lip-Balm.jpg

Typing Click It! makes me think of Bop It! – who has a Bop It? I was only introduced into it’s amazingness a few months ago and now I understand why it is the job of every person who knows a 10 year old to buy one of these for them…it’s so annoying, it’s funny. Jouer Cosmetics (meaning ‘to play’) is a clickable make up system – or perhaps I am rushing ahead of myself. […]

5 Bronzing Powders for people who don’t like Bronzers…

sonia-rykiel.jpg

My mission – to find natural(ish), skin enhancing, warmth inducing bronzers that are more tanned brown goddess than orange day glo. There are so many nasty tans out there. I am a tan-o-phobic. The smell of fake tan – that malty, mouldy, cardboardy smell is like the smell of a fart for me. There are good and bad of expensive and drugstore brands but what I personally hate in bronzers is anything: 1. Too orange. […]
