If you know my blog well, you’ll know I’m incredibly fussy with eye products – namely, eyeshadow primer, eyeliner and mascara. I have really watery eyes and oily lids (a great combination), so only use the most long-lasting, weather-resistant products possible. So, whenever I find a new eye product that I like, I feel the need to shout from the rooftops about it, as if it can withstand my troublesome eyes, it must really good. Introducing, my new eyeliner that’s made the cut, the DHC Liquid Eyeliner*. I truly thought I’d maxed out my eyeliner game with the Kat Von D Trooper liner, but actually, I think this is better.
A while back I complained that there was too much “themed” stuff on my blog and whilst I’ve definitely written a lot more product reviews since, I still feel like I’m not quite there with my old school blogging style. A few years ago I used to do a series called top three and it was where I did mini reviews of the top three lipsticks, highlighters, nail varnishes etc that I was loving at the time. Well, I’ve decided to kind of bring it back but not even in a top three style, I literally just thought today I’d pick up three random lipsticks and review them. There’s no theme, I’m not necessarily loving them at the moment and I’m not trying to use them more either. I just want to review them. Beware, this post contains a lot of chin.
Clarins is probably my favourite brand for seasonal collections, their autumn and spring ranges are always so on point and really make me feel ready for the season ahead. Last year I reviewed their Autumn 2016 collection (which featured my favourite mascara of all time) and now I’m back with a look at this year’s offerings. Part of the reason I love Clarins’ seasonal releases is because they never just adhere to the trends, they’re not a trend-led brand like the Urban Decay’s and Benefit’s of the world, they do their own thing, and I always love that. This collection definitely reflects that! Let’s take a closer look.
One of my favourite things about any hobby or skill is watching myself get better, and that has definitely happened over the years with photography. My camera is basically now an extension of me with how well I know it as I’ve just become so much more comfortable with the ins and outs of the equipment itself. Now I’m by no means a photography expert, I know my camera well and I know how to take a decent photo but that’s as far as it goes, however, I do like to look back over the years to see how far I’ve come. Today I thought I’d share some photography mistakes I used to make and what I do differently now instead.
This post has been sponsored by iHerb, however, the opinions are all of my own.
Over here in the UK, Neutrogena is a popular skincare brand – I’m pretty sure we’ve all tried something from them, pink grapefruit face wash anyone? But their makeup is much more of an enigma and hard to come by. Well, recently I teamed up with iHerb, who ship to the UK, to try out some of their makeup and let you know the ‘must-haves’ from the range. The whole iHerb process was really easy (and cheap) so I’ll talk about that in a bit, but for now, let’s talk makeup.
