Foundation guide, part 1

A while back I put together a blog post titled The Mascara Showdown and it had a great response so I thought it was time for a repeat. This time the subject is foundation which is a pretty personal thing. Everyone prefers a different formula, finish and coverage so it was a little bit trickier…

Fitglow Beauty Discovery

I have a confession to make. I am terrible at applying powder eyeshadow but I thought for the good of the people, and because you have requested it, I need to test some more eyeshadows. Enter the lovely Jana of Small Bits of Loveliness who was showing the latest Beauty Heroes makeup discovery box from Fitglow Beauty…

The Lilah B. Glow

I’m the first to admit that I am a sucker for packaging. I can’t help myself, the designer in me appreciates beautiful things! The beauty blogger in me however is more rational and she needs products to perform, not just look good. I feel like brands are really lifting their packaging game and Lilah B.…

Jillian Dempsey Makeup

I can’t remember how I first stumbled upon Jillian Dempsey’s products, it may have been through Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Katie-Jane Hughes. Either way, I am glad I did because I feel that the line really speaks to me. As mentioned in numerous blog posts I am a fan of the minimalist make up look and…

An introduction to Rituel de Fille

Rituel de Fille is a brand that seems to sit in its own category. You would hardly think that their products contain 99% natural ingredients as it certainly doesn’t scream “green”. The black minimalist packaging, decorated with celestial motifs, exudes an air of mystery. It’s sophisticated, strong, sexy, mature and a little bit witchy. Rituel de…
