Smashbox Step by Step Contour Kit Dupe?

Have W7 done it again? I recently reviewed the Smashbox Step by Step Contour Kit and raved about it, how could I not? But, then I saw this palette by W7 and the similarities are obvious, the palette even comes with a similar sort of brush! I don’t know what is happening over at W7, but they are doing exceptionally well in offering affordable alternatives to some high-end favourites. W7’s Shape Your Face Contour Kit starts from £4.95 and varies in price depending where you purchase it from.…

Determining Your Undertone Before Buying A Foundation

My search for the perfect foundation is never-ending and whenever a brand I like is set to release a new foundation – I’m always intrigued.

Illamasqua launched their Hypnotica Summer 2016 Collection on the 02nd of June and their Lip Lure Liquid Lipsticks caught my attention immediately. Initially I had hoped they would be matte but unfortunately they’re not. Nevertheless, I wanted to try the formula and also felt it would be a good opportunity to try my Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer and see how well that worked to make this appear as a matte liquid lipstick. As a brand, I love Illamasqua and I find that with every collection there…

Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Universal Dupe?

Chanel’s Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Universal is a product that many of us beauty lovers have lusted after because the packaging is just so chic and beautiful. I personally only brought the product because I wanted to display it (shameful, I know). Nonetheless, the actual formula has been raved about throughout the years and is a summer favourite of many to help achieve that sun-kissed look. However, it does cost £32.00 which comes as no surprise as it is Chanel, so an affordable alternative for…
