Is it really a BB Cream? Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector All in One BB Cream (Medium) Review

Garnier-Miracle-Skin-Perfector-BB-Cream-Review-.jpg

BB creams (Blemish Balms) have been popular in Asia for quite a while, originating from Korea, inspiring releases from Taiwanese and Japanese brands such as Hada Labo. Now other brands have jumped on the bandwagon of a ‘all in one’ skincare and foundation product.   BB Creams can cover an array of uses – it […]

Light and Long Lasting? Estee Lauder Doublewear Light Foundation Review

Estee-Lauder-Double-Wear-Light-Foundation.jpg

Estee Lauder Doublewear foundation seems to have many fans and I recently tried their Doublewear Light foundation, a product which has the long wearing properties of the original but a light, sheer finish.  I’ve never tried the original before, although I do prefer a medium coverage base – however, as my skin condition improves a […]

I bow to Shiseido: MAQuillage Lighting White Powdery UV Foundation Review

MAQUillage-Lighting-White-Powdery-UV-Foundation-.jpg

I have a serious foundation problem.  There I said it. I can’t stop hauling foundations; cream, stick, powder, gel… It was MAQUillage’s extremely pretty packaging that made me pay attention to their newest foundation release (and they are always releasing new base products for the different seasons) – Lighting White Powdery UV Foundation. Don’t expect […]

Shiseido Integrate Be Happy with the power of Mineral Liquid Foundation Review

Shiseido-Integrate-Power-of-Mineral-Foundatio-OC30.jpg

Japanese brands seem to be experimenting more with ‘mineral’ make up and I thought it was rather groovy to see Shisedo’s Integrate brand releasing a liquid mineral foundation! They also do a powder mineral foundation and a mineral base. I’ve tried the powder foundation and found it no different to standard powder foundation in texture. […]

That’s clever: Perfekt Beauty Skin Perfection Gel & Cheek Perfection Gel Review

Perfekt-Beauty-Cheek-Perfection-Gel-.jpg

I like a bit of technology with my beauty so I was pretty interested to try out some products from the Per-fekt beauty range! Per-fekt beauty is a innovative beauty range that has added benefits, like being free of wax, talc and mineral oil (where applicable!). I tried out two of their bestsellers, Skin Perfection […]

Love in a BB: Rohto Hada-Labo BB Moist Emulsion and Moist Cream SPF50+ Review

BB-Hada-Labo-Cream-SPF50-BB-Cream-BB-Fluid.jpg

I bought two versions of the Hada Labo (who make amazing cheap-ish skincare) BB Moist, purely because I wanted to see what the Japanese interpretation of BB cream was and also because I love their skincare range. On top of this they had a ‘Dark Beige’ shade which a few people told me ran quite […]

Sheer Cover! Elf Studio Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20 Review

Elf-Tinted-Moisturiser-SPF-20.jpg

As it gets warmer and warmer a lot of people downgrade their foundations to tinted moisturisers or sheerer formulas (I have more of these kinds of textures to review soon!). Well if you want to try a cheap and cheerful tinted moisturiser, then ELF Studio’s fairly new product is a good choice. They say: This […]

Foundation and Concealer in One! Laneige Snow Crystal Dual Foundation SPF22 Review

Laneige-Snow-Crystal-Dual-Foundation-.jpg

I purchased this Laneige Snow Crystal Dual Foundation a few weeks ago because I loved the idea of having a 2 in 1 product – see this has a liquid foundation and concealer in the same pot! Packaging: Another reason I bought this was because it came in a ‘darker’ shade (by Korean standards!) in […]

Diorskin Nude Haul: Crystal Nude Natural Matte Skin Perfecter, Natural Glow Creme-Gel Makeup and Natural Glow Hydrating Make Up Review

Diorskin-Crystal-Nude-foundation.jpg

I actually hauled this about 3 months ago when I was feeling saucy (although admittedly my attempts at ‘Frugal April’ have been some what thwarted by my renewed addition to Chai Tea Lattes, my hunt for summer dresses because there were 2 WHOLE sunny days and fresh addiction to Jill Stuart make up). Side note: […]

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Cover Compact UV Foundation in OC30 Review!

MAQUILLAGE-MOISTURE-FORMING-FOUNDATION-.jpg

Not brand new, but relatively new is MAQUillage’s Essence Cover Compact UV Foundation SPF24. I have a soft spot for compact cream foundations because I think they’re so quick and handy to use, but the majority are pretty lame- they don’t seem to last long even on my dry skin and bunch up on oily […]

Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Make Up Review

Estee-Lauder-Double-Wear-Maximum-Cover.jpg

Estee Lauder’s latest foundation release is this Double Wear Maximum Cover Make Up SPF15 – an interesting choice as we approach summer, no? Usually the brands are sheering up as opposed to…er….opaquing down?! I don’t know much about Estee Lauder base products, I haven’t really tried any but there’s clearly lots of choice in terms […]

Cosmetics a la Carte Bespoke Colour Custom Foundation Service Review

Cosmetics-a-la-carte.jpg

See, I have this problem with getting exactly the right shade – I am sure many other ladies understand what I mean. Slightly too dark…slightly too light….slightly too yellow…slightly too pink…. My drawers are full of these almost-but-not-quite foundations. Some of my favourite foundations have gorgeous textures but don’t quite get it right colour-wise. A […]

Revlon PhotoReady Compact Make Up SPF20 Review

Revlon-Photo-Ready-Compact-Make-Up-Foundation.jpg

I love a bit of cream. Cream/Creme foundation that is (although clotted cream with some jam on a scone – yum! Actually I don’t like scone. Just give me cream and jam in a bowl). The reason why I like cream foundation is because it’s quick. It is hydrating. If it dries to powder, it […]

Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Compact Foundation Review

Giorgio-Armani-Lasting-Sik-UV-Compact-Foundation-.jpg

Giorgio Armani foundation and base products are generally accepted being some of the best on the market and as someone who is always trying to find a non cakey powder foundation I was up for testing their new Lasting Silk UV Compact Foundation. The powder foundation contains SPF34 and is supposed to last for 8 […]
