Spectrum Marbleous brush launch event

Last week I was invited to attend Spectrum brushes press event for their new collection of marble brushes.

Here are my predictions for the start to a fresher makeup look for Spring 2017.

W7 Porefection! Review

I kindly received a box of W7 goodies to try and throughout the month I’ll be writing how I got on with the products and how they slotted into my usual routine. The one I was most concerned about switching in my routine was the primer. I’m a big fan of my Iman Time Control primer, Nyx Angel Veil and Nyx Primer spray and it is hard for me to change my mind when I’m happy with something in my routine. Whenever I hear the word “Pore” in a primer, I do cringe. Silicone based primers rarely sit on my skin and I find that any primer that tries to be a dupe of Benefit’s Porefessional slides off my skin. However I’m always up for trying new things so I gave it a go.

L’Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mascara Violet Review!

I was a bit skeptical about trying a new mascara but I did need a new every day mascara, as personally my usual mascara is a little too full volume for every day wear. I decided to try the new L’oreal Miss Manga Mascara in Violet for a change, and I got it at the introductory price of £5.99.


                     “Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara creates bold volume 

                         with L’Oreal Paris’ first 360° flexible cone shaped brush that amplifies upper lashes and reveals lower lashes.”


With it’s interesting brush shape and advertisement I grabbed one to try.

Contact lens friendly makeup, does it exist?

I have worked in the makeup industry professionally for around 3 years now, and I have to admit, I didn’t really understand what anyone was talking about when they’d ask me “Is this contact lens friendly?”

And being a newcomer with lenses I still don’t understand.

So what exactly is contact lens friendly makeup?! And what products are suitable?
