Essence Camouflage Full Coverage concealer

Essence Camouflage Full Coverage concealer

So I gave my backlog of reviews a good clean out. I had folders with pictures lurking in the nooks and crannies of my blogging files that go back three years! Three years! Since I cannot review ALL the makeup, I decided to delete those and try to go through some older products at the same time. This is one of them. Essence released this concealer last year and I figured it was about time that I got around to giving it a full review.  essence camouflage full coverage concealer 05 ivory review swatch

London haul

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I was in London two weeks ago. You will not have noticed much on here as I spent some time making sure I had enough material online. I went to London to do a spot of traveling and being a tourist visiting museums and doing some walking tours. I also visited lots of food markets and ate lots of great food. However, one cannot and not shop for some beauty products. Here’s all the bits I bought. london haul

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

I am continuing my matte eyeshadow palette review with a palette that I wasn’t much interested in when it first released. Matte eyeshadows are a necessary evil to me: they will make any eyeshadow look work, but I prefer a good shimmer over a matte shadow any day of the week. But after trying and reviewing several matte palettes, I couldn’t leave this one out.  urban decay naked ultimate basics eyeshadow palette review swatch

Today’s fashion blog post is a tad boring I have to admit. But basics are just not so exciting to write about. However, they are a necessary evil and for some reason I always find them the hardest to shop for. When I couldn’t find my favorite black t-shirt anymore at a Forever 21 store, I instantly felt a void that I found nearly impossible to fill. Luckily I have now found the website still does them, so guess what I will be stocking up on once I finish writing this blog post? favorite basic fashion items

The Body Shop Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil

The Body Shop Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil

After trying and loving a €2 face oil by Kruidvat, I knew it was time to try a more high end version. Since my love for TBS skincare is well known by now, it should come as no surprise that I wanted to try one by them first up. I have tried serums that represent an oil and come with a dropper before (e.g. by Kiehl’s and TBS), but apart from the Kruidvat Almond oil, I have never tried another straight up face oil. Time to remedy that! the body shop oils of life intensely revitalising facial oil review swatch skincare

Top 5 drugstore blush

Top 5 drugstore blush

I love a good drugstore blush, but it’s been a while since I listed my very favorite picks. Of course I love my high end picks, but there are plenty more affordable options that I love too. And you could say I love these a little bit more as they are definitely a bit more cost effective. Not all of these are super cheap: they are definitely more on the high end of the drugstore offerings, but they do all perform extremely well.
