The INKEY List, a British brand and another ‘The Ordinary’ esq, affordable, back to basics ‘hero ingredient’ products skincare line.

So this is short, sweet and exactly what it says on the tin! I posted this blown out mustard eye look over on my Instagram last week…it definitely wasn’t the most technical eye in the world, far from it but I was really feeling it! Both the shade (although you could literally switch this up […]

NEW E.L.F Metallic Flare Highlighter White Gold…Affordable, Vegan & Underrated?? Review & Swatches

I feel like E.L.F as a brand in general is a pretty underrated affordable/ drugstore brand!

NEW Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Primer…Holy Grail? – Review

I was pretty damn excited when I saw that Anastasia Beverly Hills were coming out with an eye primer…as a fan of a lot of their stuff in general but especially their eyeshadow formula, the thought of a potentially new holy grail primer in existence to go under all my ABH/ other favourite shadows (and […]

Tips To Combat Super Straight Lashes…Encourage Lift, Curl & Condition The Easy Way!

My lashes are pretty long in fairness, but they’re sooo straight!
