Kiko Shimmer Shadows - Which range has THE DAZZLE FACTOR??!

Thursday, 30 March 2017



Kiko Milano is one of those brands that I can feel comfortable with giving my money to in large quantities; I'm normally very impressed with their products (there are always a few exceptions, of course) and I DEFINITELY get the most out of my money. The prices are low and the quality is generally quite high so a heavy makeup consumer, like me, can't really ask for much more than that.

So, for today's post, I'm going to be exploring their eyeshadows with you guys, but not just any eyeshadows: SHIMMER ones! I love a good sparkle in any eye look; I'm obsessed. However, during my recent splurge on Kiko Milano's website, I picked up A LOT of shadows, all in different forms and as part of different ranges. Want the scoop on which range provides the most blinding shimmers? Well, keep on reading to find out!

Pharmacy Faves - My March Drugstore Highlights!

Monday, 27 March 2017


Okay, so we're pretty much at the end of March and, for me, that's the perfect time in which to share with you guys, my lovely readers, what I've been enjoying (definition: excessively using) this month.

However, I decided to make it a Pharmacy favourites kind of post (Drugstore, if you don't happen to be British) so that I could include products that are a hell of a lot cheaper; I, personally, can't afford to be throwing money at high end brands all the time. And I don't assume you guys want to do that either, especially when perfectly good quality makeup exists but for a FRACTION of the price.

How Argan Oil SAVED my hair + Argan Dew Product Review!

Thursday, 23 March 2017


I haven't done too many posts about haircare here on my blog, primarily because I just don't consider myself a shining example when it comes to looking after my locks. Given my frizzy, difficult hair, over the years, I've experimented with chemical straightening and still do it to this day; my tight curls are simply unmanageable without it!

However, every action has its repercussions; a while ago, I noticed that my hair didn't have the same healthy glow as before and was very fragile and susceptible to breakage. And, for me, as soon as these observations occurred to me, I knew I needed to do something serious in order to boost my hair's nourishment DRASTICALLY.

And that's where Argan oil comes in!

Yay or nay? My Newest Sephora Makeup + Swatches!

Thursday, 16 March 2017



I've been going to sephora for quite a while now, whether that be the shop or the website, for my high end beauty products and it's safe to say that I wouldn't go anywhere else; I'm whipped! But after all this time, I'd never stopped to to take a good look at their OWN brand products and after that dawned on me, I began to purchase items little by little until I'd gathered a reasonable amount of Sephora Goodies.

Today, I've selected a few of my newest purchases and am here to give you guys the down low on my new Sephora makeup. We all know they're a great beauty counter but is there makeup any good? Keep on reading to find out!

The BEST eyeshadow palette of 2016!

Monday, 13 March 2017



Normally, I would add the word 'arguably' to the title but, for me, this palette doesn't deserve to be questioned. The Nubian palette by Juvia's place is by far the best palette of 2016; the moment I saw it, I knew I had to have it and when I did obtain it, it was exactly what I'd hoped for in terms of texture, longevity, blendability and colour payoff, as you'll see throughout this post. I know it's a bit late as we're WELL into 2017 but I guarantee that after reading this, you'll want this palette as a part of your collection.

Greece - The Best and The Worst!

Friday, 10 March 2017




As some of you may know, I, recently, had the absolute pleasure of venturing out deep into the bowls of Europe and visiting Greece. This voyage was funded by my school for the Greek and Latin students (I'm a bit of a nerd to be honest) meaning that a lot of what we intended to look at was surrounding the Greeks and their history.

This trip was honestly a FANTASTIC experience for me (I don't do an awful lot of travelling so it was nice to finally go somewhere else other than the yard) and I discovered so much of the world that I didn't even know existed.
