Beautylish Hachiko Kabuki Brush Review & Photos – Beauty Article

Hachiko Kabuki Brush Beautylish Hachiko Kabuki Brush ($80.00) is a new, limited edition kabuki brush with a ceramic handle that is designed to “commemorate the story of Hachiko,” who was a beloved dog in Japan for his loyalty to his human. It features undyed, saikoho goat hair bristles in a kabuki-shaped form: a dense, rounded edge brush with a squat handle. The bristles measure 1.75″ in length and 1.5″ in width. The quality of the brush is top tier and…

Fenty Beauty Tinted Pro Kiss’r Luscious Lip Balms Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Cocoa Drizzle Fenty Beauty Cocoa Drizzle Pro Kiss’r Luscious Lip Balm ($18.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, jelly-like finish. It had sheer coverage, as described, that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without settling into my lip lines. The consistency was lightweight, emollient with a fair amount of slip, and felt like a cross between a gloss and a lip balm. It lasted for two hours and was moderately…

Shiro Take It Easy Fragrance – Beauty Article

[unpaid/sample] The last of the new Shiro fragrances for me to try, and the most glorious blast of citrus. Weirdly, I smell lemongrass but it’s not listed as an ingredient. Shiro If you’re thinking lemon sherbet, you couldn’t be more wrong – this is a citrus composition that is broken up by crisp leaves and resins to give it fulsome body that far exceeds the fleeting thrill of the top notes. Mandarin and Bergamot combine with Cypress, Frankincense and Palmarosa…

OPI Muse of Milan Collection – Beauty Article

[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] It’s kind of in the air, isn’t it – that mood shift towards deeper, more moody shades palettes? OPI’s newest collection, Muse of Milan, is absolutely hitting the spot in terms of projecting emotional colour, the sort we instinctively respond to as the seasons shift. OPI Muse of Milan Collection Quite honestly, I want all of these colours on my nails right now! And this only half of the collection – I’ll do the rest next week. I like…

Illamasqua Beyond Foundation | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] After testing several very lightweight coverage products, it IS a bit of a shock to get back to something fuller in weight. Despite the fact that this is a sheer coverage it’s still very much a move on from the tints that I’ve become used to. However, a quick glance down my local high street tells me that foundation is still very much a beauty player so this newbie from Illamasqua is for you if like a sheer/medium with…

The Beauty Thread: What’s In My Handbag? – Beauty Article

For this month’s Beauty Thread, our Business Development Manager Abbey talks us through her makeup bag essentials.  ABBEY’S RULES For someone who loves beauty, I go hard for skincare vs makeup, but I’m here to share what’s in my makeup bag in the spirit of our September Backstage Beauty edit. First and foremost, I have three rules for my makeup bag because let’s face it, you have to carry it around and you can’t bring EVERYTHING you own: 1) K.I.S.S:…

Your Favorite Fancy Olive Oil Brand Probably Makes – Beauty Article

Wellness war on gluten notwithstanding, bread is wonderful. The toasty, crunchy outside, the soft, pillowy inside—if you’ve mastered making it yourself I salute you, as I still regularly think about a fresh-from-the-oven loaf I was served (mind you, I paid extra for it) at a farm-to-table restaurant about nine months ago. As far as bread toppings go, olive oil reigns supreme in my book. I urge you to consider: is there anything better than a warm slice of large-crumb bread…

How to Shut Down Your Brain When You Can’t Sleep – Beauty Article

09 Sep How to Shut Down Your Brain When You Can’t Sleep Some people have got it easy – they lay their heads to rest, close their eyes, and in a few moments, their bodies are twitching like a puppet on the end of a string. Aaaah, the jealousy is real. Conversely, if you are one of those who suffer through the relentless reels of their own personal sitcom series, covering everything from “The most embarrassing thing I’ve ever done”…

Best Cruelty Free Makeup To Wear With A Mask | My Beauty Bunny – Beauty Article

Mask life is here and it doesn’t seem like it’s letting up anytime soon. At first, I was skipping makeup and living in lounge clothes but I’ve pulled it together and found that getting dressed for the day and putting on some makeup really helps me feel put together and to feel some normalcy during these weird times. But a full face of makeup just doesn’t always make sense these days, does it?  We’ve all heard of maskne (acne caused…

Dominique Cosmetics Cold Heart, Electric Soul, Pretty Wild Beautiful Mess Liquid Eye Paints Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Cold Heart Dominique Cosmetics Cold Heart Beautiful Mess Liquid Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a light-medium blue base with flecks of cooler gold sparkle throughout. It had a more frosted finish to its base, which was prone to emphasizing lid texture and getting chunky if built up (which the formula was supposed to do!). The texture was thin, more watery, and was one of the hardest to apply with any sense of evenness from the range. It had sheer,…

Dior Denim (279) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Denim (279) Dior Denim (279) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, blue and teal color story with a pop of gold. It’s not a total surprise that the more colorful palette didn’t perform as well as the slew of more neutral palettes did, but I had held some hope… The formulas were less forgiving and generally less blendable with the first blue shade being the hardest to work with and the center gold shade…

14 Real Reasons Why you are Exercising and Still Not Losing Weight – Beauty Article

It’s a fact that our bodies have been wired in such a way during the evolutionary process that they do not like to lose weight and cling on to fat and glycogen deposits for future use, but since our aim is to lose weight, we have to find ways to bypass the evolutionary tactic of the body to store fat. There are processes that automatically come into place when there is increase in activity or low calorie intake, by way…

Becca Rouge, Sable, Chocolate Ultimate Lipstick Love Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Rouge Becca Rouge Ultimate Lipstick Love ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark orange-red with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. There seemed to be barely-there micro-shimmer throughout that gave it a more luminous sheen but did not make it appear shimmery in finish overall. The lipstick felt creamy, smooth, and lightweight with just enough slip to be comfortable and easy to apply fluidly across my lips but not enough that it slid around during wear. It had…

Clionadh Ochre, Verte, Azure Deep Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Ochre Clionadh Ochre Deep Iridescent Multichrome Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a a warmer, brown base with metallic shimmer that shifted from brighter gold to dirty gold to green to brighter, cooler green. The brand described the shift as “gold-lime-turquoise,” which was accurate. The shift was strong so it was noticeable without contortion. The base is warmer and more tinted, though still translucent, and designed to work well on deeper skin tones. The texture was incredibly smooth with some…

Christophe Robin Regenerating Serum | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Only today I was talking with someone about how hair care was almost as standard the same price as skin care – especially in the luxury market. It used to be unimaginable to spend more on your hair than you would on your face but these days it is very easily done. Hair care is one of the areas that has seen a habit shift from Covid – people are more prepared to upgrade their basics to a more…

R&R Luxury Moisturising Hand Sanitizer – Beauty Article

[unpaid/sample] I posted about some candles in January of this year from this beautiful shea inspired brand founded by Valerie Obaze who was born in London to Ghanaian parents. I’ve used a lot of sanitizers (as have we all) over the past few months and while there has to be a certain amount of similarity in the composition in order for it to do its job effectively, I’m really noticing those that leave a lovely fragrance after the initial alcohol…

ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF30 – Beauty Article

[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Another lovely tinted skin serum! Again, it’s for those that like their skin dewy and light catchy and not for those who prefer a matte finish. ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint This really does have a serum feel to it – as well it should as ingredients include squalane, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid – and gives a low coverage that’s not so low you can’t detect it but is low enough that you have more of a real skin…

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 642 – Beauty Article

Just keep showing up, my friend. So…what is the Monday Poll? First of all, it’s late! SO LATE TODAY! I got carried away gardening and trying to beat the heat this morning, and I only just now realized the poll hadn’t gone up. WHOOPS! Better late than never. As for what the Monday Poll is, in technical terms? Well, it’s a list of more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday for the past quadrillion…

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly – Beauty Article

07 Sep Detoxing: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly There is a bit of an issue with the ‘detox culture’ that seems to be rife in the health industry. This notion of ‘dirty-then-clean’ and that a 3- or 5-day cleanse will make all things in your life better is problematic. It completely misses the bigger picture of how the body functions. Now, I’m not saying we should shove detox-plans in a dark corner and never speak about them again.…

Night Time Tangles Solved : Spirabobble – Beauty Article

[unpaid/sample] I don’t know about you, but if I don’t tie my hair up at night I wake up with – well, spaghetti-head. I’ve kept my hair longer since lock-down – in fact, I think it’s about back to when I was desperate to get it cut and there is a certain point, or length, beyond which I don’t want to go. Anyway, tie-up is essential and I usually use a snag-free spiral or a silkie (from Millesaisons HERE) with…

Ultimate Hyaluronic – Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules Hydra-Plumping Serum #AD – Beauty Article

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before. I know that words like ‘velvet’ and ‘silk’ are easily used in beauty writing but the brand new capsules from Elizabeth Arden are more representative of those descriptions than anything I’ve tried before. Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules Hydra-Plumping Serum As the name suggests, they’re all about hyaluronic – everyone’s favourite skin care ingredient. A quick recap on…
