Brand Focus: SEVENTEEN Makeup

Seventeen Makeup is the brand that I often see during my visits to Boots, but never get around to taking a closer look at. However, I’ve seen how popular affordable brands are with my readers so rest assured I will be sharing more options with you all. I also will now and again do a brand focus post where I pick a selection of products from an affordable brand and give you an overall overview. I’m starting this with Seventeen Makeup, and in today’s post…

Smashbox Step By Step Contour Stick Trio Dupe?

I recently reviewed the Smashbox Contour Stick Trio and fell in love with the formula and convenience of it. During one of my eBay browsing sessions I came across another gem from W7 and I instantly made a purchase.

L’Oréal Cushion Nude Magique Foundation

First it was the BB cream that came from Korea, followed by the CC cream and now the cushion compact has arrived. Cushion compacts are huge in Korea and have been around for quite some time, but it’s only now that this technology has made its way to the American and European markets and needless to say it’s impressive. Since the arrival there are a few brands that have created their own version. Before I ventured into the more expensive options I wanted to try…
