Etude House Lash Perm Proof Mascara & Primer Basecara Review


People quite frequently ask me, What is my favourite mascara? And my answer usually is…I dunno. It changes. Plus my lashes aren’t like your lashes, they’re straight and kind of awkward so, it takes a special kind of mascara. It’s like having big boobs or big feet; you need to buy good quality, expensive, rare bras and shoes because otherwise you just don’t have the comfort or support.  Those with average sized boobies and feet […]

Eyeliner Love! Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner Review and Swatches!


Clio is a fairly expensive Korean make up brand (in comparison to Skinfood, Etude House et al) and is also quite tricky to find if you are ordering from the UK!  I have a real eyeliner obsession and spotted these super cool looking gel pencil eyeliners called Gelpresso – like Gel and Espresso!!!!! Oh wait….Gel…Express….O.  For some reason I have coffee on the brain. Although these pencils are about £15 each I bought 6 of […]
