Maybelline Superstay Powergloss in Glass Rose

Maybelline Superstay powergloss lipgloss is a double ended wand with colour on one end and gloss on the other. The idea is that it provides 12 hours of colour shine to keep you looking good all night long. I have to say the promise doesn’t live up to reality. Like most products you’re lucky if you can keep this on for more then a hour…

Revlon : Diamond Lust eyeshadow

The most important thing about a eyeshadow is that is makes your eyes the centre of attention. Revlon Diamond Lust eyeshadow comes in a rather bulky package which takes up a lot of room so take heed if you don’t have much space! It appears really sparkly and pretty through the see through case which inspired me to buy it as generally that’s the result…

George Creamy Cheek Tint in Tulip

There as so many blushers on the market its hard to find a blusher to suit you and your skin tone. There are two types of blusher available, cream and powder and generally each is designed for different reasons.

AVON Magix Foundation

Till about the middle of last year I never felt the need for foundation as I generally have quite good skin. However after a few makeovers or two I realised the beauty of foundation is simply to give you a all over even complexion – clear skin or not. I’ve tried a few in the past and haven’t had too many horror stories, albeit looking…

This Primark blusher and bronzer duo has a lovely cute cartoon design that looks more alike Benefit packaging then Primark and really inspires you to pick it off the shelf.

I have always loved the L’Oreal range of eyeshadows as they’ve always provided a result that seems to surprise you in one way or another. The Chrome intensity eyeshadows are supposed to give your eyes that real intense look you can only get with highly pigmented eyeshadows. The range is available at variable prices depending on where you shop from around £5 and Chrome intensity…

Champneys Collection: Perfect Lips Plumping Lip Gloss

Many lipglosses claim to have the power to pump up your lips but do they really? I put Champneys plumping lip gloss to the test. Champneys products are generally mid range prices but I believe I got this lip gloss on sale reduced from £6 to £3. They are available from all large Sainsbury’s or online. The product looks quite fancy and claims to give…
