Makeup Geek Blush Review

It feels like an age ago that I got these two blushes from Makeup Geek as part of my Birthday Beauty Haul (Part 1 & Part 2) back in August. My Chronic Life currently restricts my 'well enough to apply makeup' hours drastically so it's taken a while for me to have used these blushes enough to… Continue reading Makeup Geek Blush Review

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

This Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick has been waiting patiently for a while, looking forward to the day that I'd be well enough to take it for a test drive. That day finally came recently when I was able to go out to eat with my family. This post is intended to share my first… Continue reading Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

ABH Moon Child Glow Kit

Anastasia Bevelery Hills' Glow Kits have been EVERYWHERE on Instagram and YouTube beauty channels for quite some time.

So when Body Shop had one of their 40% off everything sales (including items that were already discounted, yay!) I took the opportunity to stock up on a few essentials, including the Shea… Continue reading Body Shop Shea Body Scrub

Review: ABH Liquid Lipstick 

If you've read my recent post on theBalm's Meet Matte Hughes Liquid Lipstick, you'll already know that I resisted the liquid lipstick trend for a loooong time. I was perfectly happy with Mac lipliners and matte or satin finish lipstick and more recently fell in love with Urban Decay's Vice Lipstick in the comfort matte finish… Continue reading Review: ABH Liquid Lipstick 

Mac Lipstick Review: Twig

There are some shades of lipstick that you can reach for with complete confidence, knowing that it will work with your skin tone and with a variety of makeup looks. For me, Mac's Twig  is one such lipstick.  Mac describes the shade as 'soft muted brownish-pink'. This shade comes in a Satin finish, which is… Continue reading Mac Lipstick Review: Twig
