NEW Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer – First Impressions/ Review & Swatches

Urban Decay’s new concealer offering is here…the All Nighter Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer (UK* / IE*). It seems like an age since they launched it’s predecessor and cult favourite, the Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer (UK* / IE*)! Complete/ full coverage it is not in my opinion…but I still really like the Naked Skin […]

Contour Cosmetics…not only an Indie brand but a UK based Indie brand!

Review: Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foudation (& Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer)

I’ve been wearing and testing out the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation since it’s launch back in September.

The NYX Total Control Drop Foundation* is one of those potential cult products that I’ve had my eye on for ages!

I’d been waiting and wanting to try the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation and concealer* for ages! Especially after seeing so much buzz about it on YouTube/ Instagram and how it looked unreal on the people I’d seen apply and wear it! Usually, I’d pick up the lightest shade and in most […]

You know the way when something has been hyped so much, sounds amazing and you already love another of their products so are expecting good things? That!

If you don’t own some already/ haven’t tried it before, I can imagine that pretty much everyone remotely interested in makeup has at least heard of the Urban Decay Primer Potion!
