Urban Decay Naked 1 vs Makeup Revolution Iconic 1

I’ve been hearing for a while that Makeup Revolution have produced dupes for Urban Decay’s Naked palettes and decided to try them for myself and find out.  I am a huge fan of the Naked palettes and have had the original (and in my opinion the best!) since 2010 when my dad purchased it for […]

Givenchy Mattissime Velvet Fluid

I know that my favourite foundation is Giorgio Armani Power Fabric but there really isn’t any harm in trying other foundations. After all, I love make up and suddenly have an interest in foundation because a lot of new ones are coming onto the market. There are new formulations and big promises made. I want […]

Mini H&M Haul

I am a huge H&M fan and was thrilled when my local city finally got a store and saved me a 45 minute journey just to have a look at what they had to offer. The new store has been open a few weeks but I’ve not really had the time to properly browse, until […]

Natural Make Up for Spring

Yay! Spring is here. The clocks have gone forward and the evenings are lighter! And although I didn’t enjoy losing an hour of sleep or the last few days of having to convince B and A that yes it is acceptable to go to bed when it’s light, I am happy that Spring is here […]

Collection Velvet Kiss Moisturising Lip Cream

I’m old enough to remember when Collection was called Collection 2000. In those days, I used to buy quite a few of their products using my Saturday job wages. Not much has changed… my actual wages mostly get spent on makeup after bills, kids and my car. I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately and harking for […]
