Review: Armani Lip Magnet

[Disclaimer: This post contains press samples and affiliate links] I’m not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks. I often find them too uncomfortable and a lot of them seem to have a strangely chalky colour, even dark shades. So when I received the Armani Lip Magnet last fall to review for Daisy Beauty Awards I was initially sceptical. Not only was it a liquid lipstick, but the colour looked a...

Multi Use: Liquid Lipstick as Blush

I mentioned in my Cloud Paint review that you can get a similar effect using a silicone-based liquid lipstick, and I’d demonstrated it on my instagram already, so I thought I might as well share it here as well. This works with regular lipstick as well – it’s kind of the oldest trick in the book – but gel-formula lip products are a little easier to blend. I’m using the...

Review: Chanel Rouge Allure Ink

Having a bad day while in walking distance of a Chanel counter has proven to be risky to say the least. I was only supposed to buy one thing, but I bought three (Two eye stylos, which I will review in a separate post). Oops. My main object of desire was the Rouge Allure Ink liquid lipstick.

Trends of 2016 – My LEAST favourite beauty trends of the year

And what better time to do just that, than the end of the year, when we look back and ask ourselves what the hell we were doing in 2016. My least favourite trends, and trends I want to see stay… or begin. Take this, as you should take everything, with a grain of salt. I want to...

Daisy Beauty Awards 2017 – Lip category!

A while back, I got an e-mail from my favourite of favourite beauty publications, Daisy Beauty. Cue squealing. OMG. I was invited to be a judge for the 2017 Daisy Beauty awards, where a team of bloggers select the best products of the past year. I was given my most wanted category of lip products, and have been testing out the products over the past couple of weeks. If there’s...
