The Ordinary Skincare – Not worth the hype? Skincare Routine {Part 3}

Hiya bellas, The third instalment of my skincare series has taken forever to be written thanks to the great procrastinator that I am.

If you want to read how I got rid of my acne in 2 weeks, then check out this post here and for some of the products I’ve tried from the Phytocare range then check it out here.

Brand Focus: LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation, Strobelite, Primer, Powder & Setting Spray

Okay so I know this post is loooong overdue. I shared a pic on Instagram of the LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation and Strobe Lite Strobing Powder in Feb and frequently get asked what my thoughts are on it. I decided to gather a few other LA Girl items I’ve not yet featured on my blog just in case you were interested. There are reviews on the Eyeshadow Bricks which so closely resembles the Urban Decay Naked palettes. The Matte Lipsticks which I still enjoy to bits and the Concealers and Correctors which are essential for any makeup artists kit. LA Girl…

Me & Youth Quick Makeup Fix Review – Is it worth the hype?

Hiya bellas, So today I wanted to review the Me & Youth Quick Makeup Fix spray. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it since my Urban Decay PrepPrimeSet post went up so here’s what I think of it. Who are Me & Youth? Previously known as Beauty Fix for many years, the company got rebranded and Me & Youth was born.
