Happy Friday guys and dolls! Tonight I have an itty bitty mini review of an Indie Brand called Impulse Cosmetics. Now I have to admit I took these photos before I moved house just under a year ago and completely forgot to publish the review, oops but as they say, better late than never. I originally discovered this brand through browsing the Reddit forum r/indiemakeupandmore. It is a great place…

Terminology – Makeup Style

Found on

Just like the confusing world of hashtags, forums, YouTubers, Instagrammers, Beauty Bloggers etc all have their own special little language relating to the world of makeup. This language consists of acronyms, initialisms and abbreviations which at first glance look like some kind of crazy code but really most of them are pretty simple.

I had looked around the web for a decent glossary but only…

If you are a Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Vine or well internet user in general, you have probably come across hashtags. They are absolutely everywhere. But what is a hashtag? Well a hashtag is any words, phrases, initialism, abbreviation or acronym which is proceeded by the hash or pound sign #.

Too Faced Candlelight Glow

Two Faced is one of my favourite brands partly because of the great quality but also because I just love their packaging. I feel super girly and just a little awesome when I whip out a Too Faced compact to do a quick touch up. It has been a while since I have written anything about Too Faced, so please excuse me if I babble a little. It is just so nice to have new fun makeup to play with!

Sometime towards the end of last year or maybe it was the beginning of this year? I received a Bella Pierre Lipstick. This is my first encounter with the brand, outside of swatching them at the counter anyway. This first thing that struck me was the outer packaging. Most high end or luxury brands lean towards a plan black matte or a matte metallic cardboard structure, but Bella Pierre has opted…

Here I am, still trawling my way through the great UK Haul of 2014 and this time I am here with SEVENTEEN which is sold by Boots. Seventeen is the baby sister to No.7, the very popular Boots own makeup and skincare range. I remember Seventeen from my teenage years and was pleasantly surprised to see that it has not only survived but improved and grown. The packaging is certainly much sturdier…
