When "Dupes" Fail.......Miserably


I really struggled with what to name this Blog Post and after feeling defeated and uninspired I consulted with a fellow blogger & friend of mine, Alice Red to be exact, you can visit her website here http://www.alicered.co.uk. The title "Dupe Fails" was reached and I think it is very fitting.

 I wanted to compare two products from two brands I really like. The Nars Multiple which is probably the most famous 'all in one' products to date,  to it's intended dupe Makeup Revolution's The One Blush Stick.

 I love a good dupe (if you are not familiar with the term 'dupe' it basically describes a product that has many similarities to a more expensive / higher end version.

The 'dupe' potential for the Nars Multiple had such promise & Makeup Revolution are known for cosistenly bringing out bonafied versions of many of the iconic products out there. The whole dupe concept is amazing because for some of us the likes of Nars prices are outside the realms of what we would or could comfortably pay.

When The MUR One Sticks launched I was super excited to compare a few shades with the Nars Multiples but sadly my super excitement was short lived and I am going to share why!

Who Said Three Is A Crowd? | Trio Of The Best L'Oreal Foundations


As many of you may know foundation is defiantly a keen interest of mine and I seem to be forever looking for the next best base. To me, you can never have too many foundations in your stash, after all a lot of them claim to do different things and combat varying problem areas.

I am a firm believer in choosing different foundations depending on what kind of complexion you want to achieve or what problem you want to target (anti-ageing,blemishes etc)

I know most people would finish one bottle before moving on to the next but my theory is that life is too short to limit myself to one,two or even ten foundations. So with that in mind I thought I would share three of my favourite drugstore foundations with you and it is just a happy coincidence they are all from Loreal.

Any Disney Fans Out There Wonder What Mulan's Sleeve Is Soaked In When She Removes A Full Face Of Makeup In One Swipe?


Micellar Waters seem to have exploded in popularity in the past few years and now they are the first pitt stop when it comes to removing the bulk of our slap or makeup for the non Northerner's reading I think it was Bio Derma that paved the way for the revolutionary product that now holds a firm place in most people's skincare routines and in their bathroom cabinets.

Now almost every brand and their mother have thrown their two cents in and it has become a mind-boggling task to choose between them.
To be completely honest I have been lucky/crazy enough to have tried most of them and even though I really like Micellar Water I find it not all that exciting to talk or write about.....well that was until now!


The Garnier SkinActive Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water ticks all the boxes for me for a number of different reasons and I have to say it has blown all other Miceller Waters out of the water (pun intended)

The Best Lipsticks I Have Tried So Far....EVER!


Lipsticks are definitely a product I like to binge on....Shamefully they constitute about a third of my entire makeup collection, with that being said it's fair to say I have tried more than my fair share and have become quite picky when it comes to choosing favourites within my ever-growing collection.

I also have a texture and finish preference despite the brand or colour and it has to be Matte. When most people think of matte they associate it with awful lines, intense dryness and most of the time assume for it to be uncomfortable I think the matte revolution has really upped it's game and thanks to products like Cailyn Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint and the Hourglass Opaque Rouge Collection these worries are long gone!

  I am always on the hunt for intense,rich yet moisturising matte lipsticks and I have become quite accustomed to finding real gems on the drugstore and highend shelves alike.

As mentioned above lipstick is nothing I am short of and I do have a few 'loves' when it comes to the matte variety. A new edition that has become my favourite matte Lip of all time!!!! (pretty bold statement I know but totally true) is the Cailyn Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tints and to me they are the new 'it thing' I am so impressed with them that I wanted to shout their praises from the roof tops.

So want to know more?  Here are the deats!!!

Loreal Infallible Sculpt Range | The Gripes & The Glory


Anything surrounding sculpting and contouring and I am basically interested, so when Loreal launched the Infallible Sculpt collection I was desperate to try it. The launch has quite a few products including a brush but so far I have only opted for the most interesting- that being a foundation,a cream contour and a blush.

I have now tried all of these products and I am going to sum them up in a nutshell!
