Review: MAC Fix+ Goldlight

Review: MAC Fix+ Goldlight

I’d always wanted to try the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ setting spray. Sylvia Gani is one of my favourite YouTubers, and she swears by the stuff. MAC is one of the top tier makeup brands I use, although I mostly own lipsticks and a couple of eyeliners from them. The quality is always next to none. So when I found myself with a handy discount code, I went in for a bit of a splurge and knew the one product I’d have to pick up was some Fix+ setting spray. But as it turns out, there’s a whole new range of Fix+ sprays!

Finding a Love for Sheet Masks

Finding a Love for Sheet Masks

Most sheet masks follow the same pattern; remove the mask from the packet, stick it on your face, let it sit for 15-20 minutes, take off. Throw away the sheet, and then rub in the excess product. Ta-da; done! Most of them provide a quick boost of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and targeted ingredients to suit the purpose of the mask. Whilst most sheet masks aim to moisturise, a few brighten, deep clean, or purify the skin.

Eco-Friendly Body Care with e’lifexir

Eco-Friendly Body Care with e’lifexir

I recently was very kindly sent a sample pack from e’lifexir of it’s full range of body care products. There are seven products in the pack in total, and each one promises to carve out and define a specific part of your body. Now, I should point out this isn’t a full review, but more of a first impressions type thing, simply because I only got five sachets of each product. Not really enough to figure out if the products work long term. But, I have enjoyed using them on all 3 occasions I’ve saved to do so, so I’ll go over it here.

Review: The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel

Review: The Body Shop Drops of Youth …

As I rubbed the peel into the back of my hand, and excuse the visual, clumps of skin genuinely began to detach and form. Once wiped away, the back of my hand that had just been peeled was smooth, soft, and even looked well moisturised, whilst the other hand suddenly seemed to have noticeable patches of dry skin due to the difference.

Review – Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

Review – Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

But when my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil ran out, and I didn’t have the money to order a new one, I swallowed my pride and went in search of a good drugstore dupe. A quick online search led me to Maybelline for a similar pencil. And whilst there, I decided to try some other things that had a good reputation, before being drawn to the foundations. Having done most of my makeup shopping online, I was pretty impressed to see a display that talked through each foundation type and told me which one was for each skin type. After a little swatching, I settled on the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid.

Review: Organic Shop Haircare

Review: Organic Shop Haircare

My hair is poker straight, often gets greasy really quickly, and is now at the length where it constantly feels in the way. I need a shampoo that’s light, non oily, and sulphate free is always a bonus. So when Organic Shop sent me some products to try I jumped!

The Sweet Smell of Rituals Home

The Sweet Smell of Rituals Home

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the lovely Sara, owner of Rituals Home. Rituals Home is a small brand that focuses on creating holistic aromatherapy blends, carefully selected for certain moods and states. Sara not only creates products that smell incredible, but also keeps it natural and cruelty free. All of her products are organic, vegan, eco-friendly and made from ingredients sourced sustainably. Honestly, you can’t go wrong! Even her packaging is all recycled!

High Coverage Concealer – Kat Von D Lock it vs. Tarte Shape Tape

High Coverage Concealer – Kat Von D Lock …

At the beginning of January, I decided that one of my New Years Goals was to combat my dark circle problem, so I invested in 2 of the most hyped up, high coverage concealers I’d seen; the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, and the Kat Von D Lock it Concealer. I’ve spoken already about how much I love Shape Tape, and after I run out I will definitely be investing in that one again. Having tossed aside the Lock It Concealer as soon as the Shape Tape arrived, I’m definitely trying to pick it up again a little more. Both of these concealers have done their job, but which is more worth investing your hard earned money into?

My Beauty Wishlist

My Beauty Wishlist

There have some amazing new releases in the beauty world that I’ve been dying to get my hands on. Time to put some money aside maybe and… sorry, I can’t finish that sentence with a straight face. University is coming to an end though (*internal screaming*) and fingers crossed I’ll be getting a job (or going into a masters, but we’ll see!), earning money and can finally start buying what I want!

Reviewing the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

Reviewing the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

According to, well, everyone, Shape Tape is a concealer that will cover anything. Dark circles? Covered. Imperfections? Covered. Skin discolouration and dark spots? Covered. Angry red spots and emerging blackheads? You got it – covered. Honestly, with the amount of stuff this concealer could supposedly do, I was both enthralled and skeptical all in one go.
