Essence Lipgloss Collection | Matt Matt Matt vs Shine Shine Shine

There are very few matt products that don’t irritate my lips and most of them are high-end, so I was excited to try the Matt Matt Matt collection from Essence; one of my favourite budget beauty brands. Matt Matt Matt isn’t your typical liquid lipstick formula, it’s actually a whipped mouse lipgloss with a velvet finish. The doe-foot applicator allows precise application and although they need…

No-Makeup Makeup | Fuss-Free & Lightweight Foundation Alternatives

We all have different preferences when it comes to foundation depending on our skin type.

Beauty Products I Regret Buying #2

I’ve been really lucky when it comes to disappointing products recently considering how many skincare and makeup bits I actually purchase. Today’s products aren’t awful, but they aren’t great either. I was swithering whether or not to add the new L’Oréal Pardice Mascara to this list (controversial, I know) but I decided to dedicate a whole post to it which is coming soon. Spoiler alert, I just don’t get the…

Jouer Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick in Dulce de Leche

Have you ever ordered a product online to have it arrive and be surprised by how it looks in ‘real life’? When I opened my Beauty Bay delivery and saw the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick, I was surprised, that even though I’ve seen this exact product used countless times in tutorials by US beauty influencers on YouTube, that the tube was so tiny (6ml).…
