Beauty | My First MAC Lipstick – Was it Worth the Hype?

Beauty | Ciate London Big Beauty Bus

After Christmas I’m not normally one for boxing day sales and bargains but when I was stocking up on a few essentials in Boots the other day I came across the Ciate London Big Beauty Bus (down from £15 to £7, although it actually retails for £25 on the Ciate London official website)…

Beauty | Makeup Revolution Amazing Volume Mascara

I have to admit, even though I adore Makeup Revolution’s eye shadow palettes (Romantic Smoked is my favourite right now) I had very low expectations for their mascara. Why? To put it simply I guess some small part of me is still a makeup snob. Benefit’s They’re Real and Smashbox’s…
