Review | Dermelect Line Correction Eye Gel

First up: sorry for the lack of posts this week, folks. We’ve been having technical issues which have left me with very little time to write anything, and Mr Dollface and I are also getting ready for a weekend away,…

Review | Benefit Erase Paste

I hadn’t been looking for a new concealer when I picked this up. I had been using Benefit’s Boi-ing, which I was perectly happy with, but hey, if Benefit release a new product you can guarantee I’ll be all over…

Pixi Velvet Rouge – Liquid Blush Melts

After the life-changing experience that was my discovery of NARS Orgasm ( I jest. Well, sort of.) I’ve been just a little bit obsessed with blusher. Could there be other blushers out there that I’d love just as much as…

The Hammer House of Hairdressing Horrors

Yeah, I know, I’m totally running out of clever titles for posts in which I go to the hairdresser and return with a headfull of crazy layers that don’t look any different AT ALL to anyone else but me. Sorry….

As a big fan of big lashes, I’ve been known to get the falsies out on occasion, and generally use a pair of tweezers to pick ‘em up and stick ‘em on. (I like Tweezerman’s point tweezers for this purpose,…

My nails suck. No, really, they do. I’ve never been a nail biter, but I can’t stand the sensation of long nails on my keyboard, and I rarely have either the time or patience to give myself a proper manicure,…

27 Dresses – but nothing to wear

You know what would make my life a whole lot easier than it currently is? Being able to dress myself without having to ask my mum, Erin, Terry, and the entire internet what I should be wearing. I mean, you’d…

The Beauty Blender: anyone tried it?

Confession: I don’t really use many sponges or brushes to apply my makeup. With the exception of eye shadow (which I don’t use a lot of anyway), I tend to just use my fingers. Yes, I know, I know… When…

Review | Afterglow Cosmetics Organic Mineral Foundation

 Afterglow Cosmetics’ Organic Mineral Foundation is 100% natural, contains a natural sunscreen, and it suitable for even the most sensitive of skin. Sadly, the trial tub was the wrong shade for my porcelain (ahem!) skin, so I handed it over…

Reviewed By You: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Some beauty products quickly become cults. You know the ones: they’re the products you seem to hear about all the time, with makeup artists and mere mortals alike raving about them. Sometimes they live up to the hype, sometimes they…
