5 Amazing Beauty Brands You Can Buy from ASOS

5 Beauty Brands to buy from ASOS

The Ordinary I wrote about The Ordinary skincare brand in this recent post and have really been enjoying the products I’ve used so far. The truth is that some skincare can be difficult to review because the results are either hard to see (I have pretty good skin to begin with so I’m not looking for a total transformation) or tend to only be visible over time. This is true of the Niacinamide and Retinoid serums – I like them both, had no adverse reactions and will continue to use them but it’s not like I stopped having sun spots…

Cold Weather Favourites & Some Duty Free Purchases…

Hello, beauty babes! I recently returned from my incredible holiday to Iceland, and I thought I’d give you a brief rundown of the products which performed very well in the extreme cold, as well as some of the goodies I picked up while I was over there. Foundation duo of dreams: IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream + SKOON Glow Drops.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette How glorious? The shade selection is sublime (I am a warm-toned girl through-and-though), the shadows are insanely pigmented, they blend like a dream and they wear really well. And the applicator brush that comes with the palette is brilliant – hands down the best I’ve ever tried. I love the versatility of this palette too, you can create so many different types of looks, and a little pop of red/orange/ochre makes my eyes look so blue, which I love. The only slight downside for me is that the shadows kick up a lot of powder,…
