I have a passion for make-up, nails and all things fabulous.
I’m a qualified beauty therapist and make-up artist and blog in my spare time. I am very interested in special effects make-up and am studying with a view to moving into this area of the industry.
I also have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (and some of it's friends) and use a wheelchair to get about and enjoy life.
I received this in my Look Incredible subscription box and I've found myself reaching for it quite a bit. The blush illuminates and brightens the complexion without over-highlighting. It's very finely milled a day soft with just the right amount of pigment - not too much but not so little that you have to go back for more and more.
I love the colours, the luxe packaging, the feel of the product on the lips however by comparison with other formulas these lipsticks just don't last as long for me and I end up with a ring around the outside. Not the look I was going for so I can only really wear them on days when I'm able to top up often.
I got this and its sister palette last Halloween when they were available briefly. The shades are different from their usual range so worth adding to your collection if you have a lot of Make-up Revolution palettes. This one is a great way to explore a variety of different dark shades for little cash and all are quite workable. You can increase the intensity of colour by spraying the brush with water or setting spray.
No idea how it is for roaches but it stops black ants in their tracks within just a few hours. As a happy accident I also discovered it sure keeps my home free of the eight legged kind during spider season here in the UK so I am a regular purchaser of this even when there are no ants!
After using the ones in my Glossybox I'll be going back to men's single bladed BIC disposables. I always find anything with more than one blade chokes up if you show it anything more than stubble. While the handle is nice it seems like a huge waste for a disposable razor that doesn't last long.
A cheap method of causing long-term skin damage. Broken capillaries, stretched pores - not to mention those open pores will be wide open to dirt and infection. Get a facial instead, your skin will thank you for it!
Another product that bombed for me, I found the product did not stay put and had gone from a neat flick to raccoon eyes in just a couple of hours. I also found there to be a steep learning curve with the brush-like tip which provides no resistance unlike every other eyeliner pen on the market.
I adore this bronzer, it's perfect for pale skins like mine. It smells amazing too, sometimes I open the compact just to get a whiff! If I could figure out exactly which version of Shalimar it was fragranced with I'd invest in a bottle.
