I wanna start by saying that this post is super late. Longtime followers of this blog (my mum and my boyfriend) will remember 5 February Favourites from earlier this year, where I wrote about my best beauty discoveries that month, and planned to do every month. Obviously, life got in the way and this never happened. But I’m back! 7 months later and a day late, here are the products I’ve been obsessing over this September. 1. Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation I have a confession to make: this is the first time I’ve ever tried a Benefit foundation.…

In the words of the eternally wise and beautiful Jackie Aina, every girl should have a signature red lipstick – you just have to find the one that works for you. I’ve been on a mission to find my perfect red ever since I started this blog, first with Perfect Shade, and then with Sleek.

NARS is…

Thank God we don’t have Sephora here or I would be significantly poorer than I already am. (Just kidding, Sephora, please come to the UK, I love you).

But unfortunately, beauty and make up are not my full time job (yet),…

February is a pretty shit month, I think we can all agree. It’s too cold, everyone’s still skint after Christmas, it’s no longer my birthday month (January 4th, thanks for asking), Valentines is shit whether you’re single or not, it’s just not fun for anyone involved. However, I always manage to cheer myself up with some banging beauty buys, and this past month’s been no different. Here are the best of the best – and a couple of the worst, too. Noughty Pumped Up Shampoo and Conditioner I won’t lie, I’m shit at hair. Make up I can talk about…

I love a good dupe. I remember the first time I found out they were A Thing. I was maybe 17, and I came across the W7 In The Buff eyeshadow palette – if you hadn’t guessed already, an Urban Decay Naked dupe (see what they did there?). I was so gobsmacked that you could copy the exact shades of one palette, repackage it and sell it for a tenth of the price. Why was anyone wasting money on expensive brands? I would brag to all my friends about my incredible find, and they would smile, nod politely, and carry…
