Anti- Haul

1. Tarte Shape Tape Foundation

The shade range is an absolute disgrace. They have 11 light shades, 2 medium/tan shades and 2 dark/deep shades.

In my opinion, they released the foundation’s too early before all the shades were released.

And having a shade range like that is unacceptable.

2. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

Too expensive and I have shades similar to the palette.

3. Kylie Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palettes

Overpriced and custom charges are a lot. And there is a lot of shades that I wouldn’t use.

4. Any Tarte products

After there most recent launch I have decided not to buy any more products from Tarte.

5. Farsali Rose Gold Elixer

I’ve heard it a great beauty oil, but the price way too much for me. £50.

Review- Nurse Jamie Uplift Beauty Roller

As un-put-downable as a bestselling novel and a favourite with discerning A-List beauties, the Nurse Jamie UpLift Massaging Beauty Roller is an innovative tool designed to revive and uplift the face and body. Simply roll the unique hexagonal barrel all over skin to leave it feeling energised and enhanced – thanks to the 24 tourmaline stones which help stimulate sluggish skin cells (and ‘exercise’ the underlying facial muscles). Utilising a rhythmic rolling action, the UpLift replicates the techniques used in real life nurse (and clinical skin care expert) Jamie Sherrill’s exclusive, collagen-boosting facials. Renewed, youthful-looking, even skin is just a roll away – use it daily for optimal results.

Massage each desired area for 30-45 seconds. Use daily for optimum results. Promotes anti-ageing techniques used in our renowned collagen boosting facials. Avoid contact with sensitive areas such as the middle of throat and nose and direct contact with immediate eye area or open wounds. Suitable for most skin types.



I use this beauty roller to massage in my serums and moisturisers

This product is like getting a facial massage

I massage each area of my face and neck for 30 seconds to stimulate the collagen

I try to use the beauty roller every night

I’ve been using  the product for month, I haven’t seen a massive difference yet but I’ll keep you updated

First Impression – Nars Natural Radiant Long Wear Foundation 

Shades I have are Tahoe and Syracuse.



✔ Medium

✔ Full

Skin type:

✔ Sensitive

✔ Normal

✔ Dry

✔ Combination

✔ Oily


✔ Natural

What it is:

A foundation with up to 16 hours of lightweight, natural, fade-resistant wear, featuring full-powered radiance to smooth the look of skin.

What does:

NARS’ first 16-hour foundation has a lightweight, breathable, fade-resistant formula and features medium-to-full, buildable coverage in 33 skin-matching shades to fit all skin tones and undertones. The transfer-resistant, sweat-resistant formula stays colour-true all day and continues to look fresh and vibrant as if it was just applied. This formula features superior blendability for an imperceptible effect that looks natural, like skin. It doesn’t look or feel cakey, heavy, drying, or masking. A unique combination of a translucent base with micronized amino acid-coated pigments and mineral tone-balancing powders mimic skin’s tone, fusing with it for the closest match. NARS’ Skin Optimizing Complex—a blend of raspberry, apple, and watermelon extracts—helps support skin’s elastic fibres to smooth and improve skin’s appearance over time for optimal radiance.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

– Parabens

What else you need to know:

This product is also oil-free, fragrance-free, non-drying, dermatologist-tested, and noncomedogenic.

How I applied the product-

My skin type is combination, and right now my skin is dry.

Used two pumps

to blend- I used a morphe beauty sponge and it blended easily, but it take some of the coverage, so next time I will try it with a brush

The foundation is full coverage and I did colour correct my acne scars

The foundation does look natural

Throughout the day-

The foundation continued to look natural, didn’t cling onto any dry patches.

I did get slightly oily but not a lot that I needed to blot or powder.

The foundation did feel a bit heavy on my chin but that is nothing new for me, next time I’ll apply less on my chin.

Review- Kat Von D Lock It Foundation 

Creamy and pigmented, ‘Lock-It’ foundation is the only long-wear liquid formula we can count on to create a perfect canvas. With one pump it will even out discolouration, stop shine and hide blemishes, offering amazing coverage that’s so long-wear you can go a full 24 hours without re-applying. Formulated with proprietary pigments plus an exclusive blend of siliconic elastomers which bind the formula, it will stay flawless, fade-free and transfer-proof. The bottle also features an innovative airless chamber design that prevents contamination, maintains rich consistency and ensures a fresh, precisely measured dose with every pump.

How I applied the product

To prime I used the farsali unicorn drops to have added moisture and the cover Fx blotting drop in my t-zone. 

I only used once pump of the foundation. 

I used a morphe Y6 brush to stipple in the foundation. And I used to beauty sponge to smooth everything over.

To conceal I used the urban decay naked concealer. To powder I used the fenty beauty powder and bare minerals powder. To bronze the nyx bronzer and to highlight I used the ofra rodeo drive. 

My thoughts on the foundation

It’s very full coverage 

Blends easily 

Lasts well through out the day 

Feels a little heavy but not that bad

Blends with other liquids and powders well
