Clinique 'Take the day off' makeup removers

Clinique ‘Take the day off’ Balm or Oil? – makeup remover review

Removing makeup should be one of the most important steps in our evening routine. You can spend a lot of money on amazing lotions and potions but none of them will work to its full potential if it’s applied on a face with remains of makeup and dirt on it. If we have 20 minutes on average in the morning to apply our makeup, we should always be able to find 5 minutes in the evening to take it all off and let our skin breathe.

I know, I know… easier said than done. It’s the evening, you’re tired, you had a long or bad day (or both…) and all you want to do right then and there is put your head on a nice fluffy pillow and forget all about it. I get it, I’ve been there, but your skin is much less understanding…

Urban Decay Smoky eyeshadow palette

Urban Decay Smoky eyeshadow Palette – review and swatches

So, Urban Decay did it again, they released yet another neutral eyeshadow palette that made faithful fans jump with joy (I still am as I type this) and look in anticipation for its release.

As a proud owner and frequent user of Naked original and Naked 3, I knew that if the quality of this one is just as good, then I’m in for a real treat. Needless to say, Urban Decay did not disappoint.

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer 03 Brunettes

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder 2015 Summer Edit

Some makeup brands add a bit of a twist for the new season and dress their products in different, often limited edition packaging. Take Tom Ford bronzers for instance. Dressed in white sleek cases with gold details for the summer 2015.

This goes to show that contrary to what some of us may say, the packaging is important to an average consumer (read: makeup enthusiast) and may just mean a difference between a buy and no buy. 

Guerlain did just that and this summer came out with the very same Terracotta bronzer formula that we already know and love, but this time, dressed in a silicone sleeve in a happy, summery, bright colours. 

Delilah cosmetics lipstick and mascara

Delilah Cosmetics – lipstick and mascara review and swatch

So here comes a second review of some Delilah Cosmetics goodies I recently acquired and have been thoroughly enjoying since. In my last post I reviewed their bronzer and blush, both of which I can wholeheartedly recommend, so check it here if you want to read some more about the products, see some swatches as well as a brief background of Delilah as a brand. 

Delilah is a relatively new cosmetic brand, still unheard of by many, so I wanted to give it a go and see if it is worth exploring and trying out their products. They offer an extensive range of makeup from lipstick to foundations to some makeup brushes, some of which I am still yet to try for myself, but for now, I can share my thoughts on the products I have tested. 

Rimmel Nude Collection nail polishes

Rimmel Nail Polish – Dare to go bare!

Rimmel released another one of their Kate Moss collaboration, this time of Nude lipsticks and nail polishes. As a nude shade enthusiast, I had to get at least some of the colours. They must be very popular, since whenever I’m around Rimmel counter, some of the colours I had my eyes on are always out of stock… That’s the beauty of limited editions I guess…

The collection consists of 5 lipsticks out of which I bought 3, if you want to see the colours I chose and some swatches, click here to read my previous post. There is also 5 nail polishes all in beautiful nude hues from the very light, to darker shades. 

Clinique BB cream anti-blemish

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solution BB Cream review


Let me start by saying that I am not a massive fan of BB or CC creams. I understand the concept, but it’s just not my favourite type of base. On a daily basis I use foundations ranging from full coverage like Estee Lauder Double Wear (holy grail status) to lighter ones like Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet.

I have tried some BB and CC creams before, but wasn’t overly impressed with any of them. Some did absolutely nothing in terms of coverage, (i.e. using a normal moisturiser would have the same effect, which to me is missing the point) and others made my already oily skin even oilier and made the rest of the makeup slide off my face. So, safe to say that I approach any claims of BB or CC creams with caution.
