B makeup setting spray

B Cosmetics from Superdrug is one of the good ones! I have tried a few items from them and so far I loved them. Today’s review will be on their Makeup setting spray.

What the brand says:

B. Makeup Setting Spray is that “last but definitely not least” element of your makeup regime, helping give your look staying power and minimising shine. The fine texture of this setting spray helps to empower your look and to give it a just-applied look and feel all day or night. The mist feels almost weightless and prevents shine. Whatever the day throws at you, your makeup will look as fresh as when you applied it.



The spray is housed in a matte black bottle and sprays in a fine mist. It doesn’t have any particular scent. I was gifted this product a while back.

What I liked: I really liked how fine the mist is from this setting spray. After shaking, I do a few spritz over my face and neck. It dries quickly and doesn’t leave any marks or patches on the skin. This setting spray doesn’t add a dewy/luminous finish but it doesn’t promise that anyway. It’s not an extreme matte finish either. What I noticed was it really helps to help and lock in makeup and keep shine at bay for longer.

I wear powder foundation daily to work and using this to set my foundation (currently the Bare Minerals Pro Powder) I noticed my makeup looked fresher for longer and my tzone which usually gets oily/shiny after 4-5 hours didn’t get oily/shiny as quickly. The thing is I didn’t even notice the benefits that much until I decided to test the powder foundation without the setting spray.


I really like the setting spray. I love it for summer/spring when my skin is more oily and I prefer a semi-matte finish. As you know I always prefer dewy/luminous makeup setting sprays all year round even in the summer however I also like layering a semi-matte/matte setting spray over a dewy one to reduce shine.

I would buy this and would recommend.

B. Pro Makeup Setting Spray is £6.99

Review Round up: Makeup Setting Sprays

Are you a fan of makeup setting sprays? I am. I love using setting sprays when I do my makeup to lock and extend the wear of it. I also love using it to amplify products like highlighters and eyeshadows and melt the excess powder into the skin.

I tend to gravitate towards dewy and luminous setting sprays because I prefer this finish over a matte look but I have also used matte setting sprays especially when I’m on holiday in a hot country( even so I would layer a matte setting spray over a dewy one lol). I also love layering setting sprays, this is perfectly fine to do.

If you are looking for a new setting spray, here are some I have in my collection

Skindinavia Bridal Makeup Finishing Spray– the original version of this has a cult following but I decided to go with the bridal version because I wanted something with a dewy finish. This setting spray is great and does give a natural dewy finish to the skin. I don’t see what the hype is because I have certainly used better setting sprays that set makeup so that it doesn’t budge. Maybe the original version is better so I still want to try it. It’s a good setting spray its expensive but its ok.

MAC Fix Plus Pink lite– I LOVE the original Fix plus and I’ve been buying it since it was only £12! Fix plus leaves the skin hydrated and dewy without looking oily. It’s a holy grail product for a lot of people because it just works. I love that they have expanded the range to include different finishes and scents. This one has pink shimmer in it, it’s not overpowering and too glittery so I love using this as a ‘topper’ and layering it over other setting sprays when I want my makeup to be extra glowing. I can also use it on my chest for extra glow. There is also a gold and bronze version I want to try. The shimmer settles to the bottom so remember to shake well before using!

Cover Fx Illuminating Setting Spray– so this is my least favourite mist out of the bunch. I love CoverFx so when I saw this setting spray I was really excited to try it. This spray is a glitter mess! It leaves glitter/shimmer everywhere and dries patchy. Even when I shook well before using I found the glitter overpowering. I like luminous setting sprays but I don’t like obvious glitter/shimmer. I now use this on my body when I don’t have time to use my body illuminators, this is quick and easy t mist this and go

B Makeup Setting Spray– this mist is surprisingly good. This gives a matte finish and sets makeup so for me I can only use it during the summer months. I have used this intermittently because of the matte finish but I really like it. I usually layer it under a dewy setting spray. (Gifted)

Review Round up: Makeup

I have another batch of reviews for you! I will be talking about a few concealers I have been using over the last couple of years and some other makeup products.

Let’s start

I love concealers and over the years I have tried a few. Those tiny products are great for multitasking and can be used for highlighting, contouring, bronzing and concealing depending on the shade you get. You can even use it as a foundation if you get a good match and yes concealers can be used for contouring or bronzing( you don’t need a specific ‘contouring’ product to contour with).

MUA ProBase Full Coverage Concealers– these are described as full coverage but I found them quite sheer when blended. It does layer well and can be built to medium coverage at most without looking cakey. They are really cheap so I don’t mind but I think there are other cheap concealers that are much better. I have the shades 182 and 183 which are quite similar but I love the undertones of them.  * Gifted product

Makeup Revolution Fast base concealers– I really like this concealer. It is medium coverage and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It’s a twist-up pen with a sponge tip applicator so whilst it’s easy to apply, that sponge tip is not good for blending. I have the shade C13 which is always the concealer shade I get from this brand. I like this better than the MUA concealers. This gives more of a satin finish.

Sephora Bright Future Gel- Serum concealer- I fell in love with this concealer on a trip to NY a long time ago but I didn’t get it then because the shade I wanted was out of stock. A few years back my friends went to Canada and I asked them to pick this up for me but the shade is too dark so I don’t use it often. This concealer is medium coverage and easy to blend. I actually didn’t realise how dark this shade is, I will start using it as a base for cream bronzer/contour. This gives a radiant finish without overpowering.  I need to go to Sephora but since there isn’t one in the UK and the US site doesn’t ship to UK, I have to wait to go on holiday, find a Sephora and get a better shade. I have the shade Truffle

MAC Prolong wear concealer– this is a full coverage creamy concealer that feels slightly heavy on the skin. I love this, a little goes a long way with this concealer. The only reason why I don’t use it as much is that it’s in a pump bottle and I am used to using concealers with a doe-foot applicator. Application with the concealer is messier but the coverage is great. I have the shade NC50. This doesn’t give a matte finish but it’s not too dewy either.

Moving on from concealers, we have some complexion products

Iconic London Illuminator- so this illuminator is very popular and whilst I can see why the shade is wrong for my skin tone. I got this in an advent calendar a while back but I don’t use it at all. The shade is quite light so it can look ashy/slivery on me.  I have the shade ‘original’. I have tried using it with darker foundations but I do not like the undertone it gives them

GlamGlow Glow starter Moisturiser– this is actually a moisturiser but I don’t like shimmer in my skincare products. I mix it with another primer to give my makeup a radiant finish. I really like this. It smells great, moisturises my skin and leaves a light golden glow. It doesn’t pill when mixed with my primer and works well under foundation. I have the shade nude glow

Danessa Myricks Colour Fix– I’m obsessed with Danessa Myricks! She’s an amazing MUA I follow on Insta and she has these amazing products called ColorFix. This is a cream multitasking product that can be used anywhere on the face. I have used this as blush, lipstick and eye shadow. This is the matte version and you don’t really need to set it. Its transfer and waterproof and it’s also long-wearing. I really like this shade. She has a ton of other shades and different finishes. I have the shade coffee cake

That’s all the reviews for this batch of reviews! Make sure you check out some of these products, especially Danessa Myricks!

Review Round up: Makeup Primers

In today’s post, I will be talking about a few primers I have been using over the years. Do you use a primer as part of your makeup routine? I find a lot of people are either strongly against or strongly for, I am in the latter category. I like knowing there is a barrier between my skin and makeup and I do find they make a difference.

I have a lot of primers and these are the ones I have reached for overtime but never reviewed previously:

MUA ProBase Primer oil– remember two years ago when everyone was using primer oils? I was gifted this around that time. I like this because it gives foundations a dewy finish. I prefer dewy/luminous makeup than matte makeup so mixing this in with my foundation gives me that. It doesn’t leave the skin too oily. I follow Danessa Myricks on Instagram, she’s an amazing MUA and she also loves dewy makeup. I’ve seen her countless of times mix an oil & illuminator with foundation and it gives the most beautiful finish. I’ve been doing that too and I must say it works.

YSL Touche Éclat Blur Primer– I saved up my Boots points to get this a few years back and I don’t regret it! This primer with the fine gold flakes/shimmer helps smooth and blur pores and leave it radiant. This has a silicone base so it really helps to smooth the skin. It’s pricey for a primer but I think it’s worth it. It doesn’t ball up when you blend your foundation on top of it.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer– this is a very expensive primer so I opted to get a travel size first which is still very expensive, about £18 for 10 ml. I got this a while back and I think it was £15 then. Still, I got it because Hourglass is a luxury well-known brand and I wanted to know what the hype was about. Tbh it’s a lovely primer, it feels hydrating on and doesn’t have the smoothness silicone primer gives. It still feels smooth on the skin and helps to extend makeup review. But do I think it’s worth the hype and price? I don’t think so

Becca Velvet Blurring Primer– so when this was first released I was realised excited to try it. I got this via Beautylish sometime ago. I don’t like this as much because it’s very very fluid. I was confused when I used it for the first time because I wasn’t expecting that texture. I got a full refund from Beautylish because of this. It really does leave a velvet finish and it’s also quite matte but the texture for this is so wrong.

Touch In Sol No poreblem primer– I’m not sure if this is supposed to be a dupe for Benefit Porefessional but I like this better. I got the mini size in a beauty advent calendar. This is silicone-based and smoothes pores to reduce their appearance. I don’t use it all over my face, just in the areas I have large pores which are t-zone and chin.

What’s your favourite primer?

See you soon!

NARS Makeup Brand Review

NARS is simply one of the best brands in the market. It’s also one of my favourite makeup brands. They have some of the best formulas in the market plus their complexion products are always inclusive. NARS is a high-end brand so with that comes a high price tag but are they worth it? I thought I would do an overall brand review since I have a few of their products. If you are still on the fence hopefully I can convince you to try them

NARS have both skincare and makeup items however I only have the makeup items.


NARS has a few foundations and I have 3 of their main ones, Sheer Glow, All Day Weightless Luminous and Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. I have full reviews on all 3 foundations which can be read here, here and here.

It’s hard for me to choose a favourite out of these 3, but I really REALLY like the All Day Weightless Luminous foundation. It’s the right balance of luminosity and coverage. I have normal to combination oily skin but I always opt for a dewy luminous finish for my makeup. This foundation is lightweight and dewy plus coverage buildable coverage. Check out the reviews!


Their iconic Creamy Radiant Concealers are best sellers for a reason. They have buildable coverage and leave the under-eye brighter without looking cakey. They are available in a ton of shades and there is a shade for everyone. I have two shades: Café and Amande but I also want to get Truffle or Hazelnut. The concealers are lightweight and easy to blend. It’s one of my favourite high-end concealers I own.


NARS blushes are so pigmented! The shades look absolutely beautiful on dark skin. If you’re looking for high-end blushes, I always recommend either NARS or MAC blushes. They have some iconic shades like Exhibit A and Taj Mahal which dark skin beauties swear by (unfortunately I don’t have these shades yet).

Their iconic bestselling shade Orgasm is a pinky shade with golden reflect which I actually don’t like for dark skin as a blush (give me a sec). I got the mini size in the Debenhams Beauty Advent Calendar last year and I think it looks better as a highlighter than a blush. NARS has extended the Orgasm range and added Orgasm X which I think looks better on dark skin.

They recently added new shades to the blush collection and I picked up Savage which is this cute copper shade! I do want to pick up other shades: Lovejoy and maybe Orgasm X are on the list

I have 5 NARS blushes: Seduction, Dolce Vita, Savage, Torrid and Orgasm


I have 2 items from their eye products. Last year BrownBeauty (online mag I write for) had a makeup event with NARS which I got to model for. In my goody bag, I received the Tinted Smudge Proof Eye shadow base. Let me tell you, I have never believed in eye primers but this product (OMG) is a life changer! The light brown base evens out my lids and it’s tacky so eye shadows stay on( it comes in 4 shades and I have the shade dark). No smudge no creasing. I have oily lids so my shadows ALWAYS crease on me (I think this is why I’m not as creative with eye shadows because they crease on me) even when I use concealer and set it with a powder. Using this as a primer my shadows stay on and they last! No creasing, GURL I was shook. I will 100% buy this when I’m done and it’s definitely worth it. I have a travel size Audacious Mascara, I haven’t used this yet.


I have one lipstick from their Pure Matte lipsticks in 413 BLKR. This is a warm brown shade and it looks amazing on. They say it’s pure matte but I honestly don’t think it is, I have matter lipsticks than this. It’s a comfortable soft matte/satin. Then I have 3 lip balms in Orgasm, Torrid and Hidden Pleasure, I got these for Christmas, my friend brought them by mistake, I put the torrid giftset but she was confused and got these instead lol. The lip balms are ok, they add a hint of colour and hydration to the lips. I finally got Torrid for my birthday from a friend!


Is NARS worth the money? Absolutely. If you can only get one item from the brand I would definitely recommend the foundations. They are some of the best formulas I have tried. It’s worth investing in a good base for your makeup because it will set the tone for everything else! If you can pick 3 items then go for foundation, concealer and blush.

I hope this helps! NARS is a reputable brand and it’s definitely worth the money. In terms of high-end prices, they are reasonably priced and are in the same price range as MAC, Fenty and Lancome. They have a ton of products and mini sizes you can try out too. During Christmas, their gift sets are amazing and well-priced so it’s a good time to test them out!

Will you be picking anything up? let me know

Brand Review: MAC Cosmetics

MAC Cosmetics is THE OG brand for a lot of people and one of the first brands that actually catered to dark skin girls( remember in 2011 when everyone’s fav MAC concealer was NW45?). My very first high-end makeup products were also from MAC.

MAC has a lot of products and it’s the one brand I frequently recommend to people especially when they want a brand they are familiar with (everyone knows about MAC). I have a few of their products, ok I have a lot so I am doing a brand review with swatches.

Back 2 MAC is their recycling scheme. Bring back 6 empty full-size products and you will receive a full-size lipstick for FREE!

Here are the top products I recommend:


I have 4 of their foundations: MAC Mineralise Skin Finish, MAC Studio Fix Liquid, MAC Match Master Foundation and MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus. My 1st ever high-end foundation was the Match Master foundation. I only got the Studio Fix out of necessity at duty-free because I didn’t pack foundation and it was the only one available. Full review here. The powder foundation has quickly became a favourite for everyday wear. Full review here


I have 3 concealers: MAC Studio Fix Cream, MAC Studio Fix liquid and the ProLongwear concealer. Again the cream concealer was the first high-end concealer I purchased in the OG shade NW45 lol. I like all the concealers.


I have 2 other face powders MAC Blot Powder and the Mineralize Skin Finish. I can’t remember why I got the Blot powder this but it’s such a good powder, I’m not sure why it’s not as popular. It’s great for blotting during the day but it doesn’t add colour or disturb makeup. Everyone knows about the Mineralized skin finish powder. I use this to set my foundation

Setting sprays

One of the top-rated items from MAC is the MAC Fix Plus. This OG HG setting spray melts powder into the skin, sets makeup and gives a natural glow to the skin. I have a lot of setting sprays and I have tried a lot, however, Fix plus is one I keep repurchasing. I have watched it go from £12 (yes £12) to the now £21! I also love they have extended the scents with lots of new scents and different finishes


I clearly love MAC lipsticks because I own 11 of them! These are the first high-end lipsticks I ever owned. Since I started getting them I wanted them all hence 11 lol. I also recently discovered these clear caps on Amazon and they make such a difference. I hated all red lipstick until I met Ruby Woo



I only have 1 highlighter from them and it’s from their collab with Taraji. I got this for free because of a labelling issue at the time. MAC blushes are amazing, I have 3 shades: Sweet as Cocoa, Diva don’t care (limited edition), Raisin (the black girl favourite)


MAC is an excellent brand and it’s worth picking up a few of their products. They are competitively priced, easy to find and inclusive with their shades. I love their back 2 MAC recycling scheme which rewards you with a free lipstick. MAC cosmetics is so easy to find, they have standalone and they are also located in department stores

If you could pick

1 item only- Studio Fix Liquid or Powder foundation

3 items only- foundation, blush, lipstick



MAC Studio Fix Plus Powder Foundation Review

MAC is the OG brand for black girls! For the longest of time, it was the only brand to really cater for us (even though the artists always tried to sell one shade NW45 to every black girl LOL), my very first foundation and makeup products were from MAC!

Last year I got into Powder foundation for real as I was looking for something quick and easy for everyday casual wear to work. I got the Studio Fix Powder Foundation and I have been using it ever since. I have hit pan and almost finished it. I’m literally scraping the last bits of it. I have purchased a backup so I thought it’s the perfect time to bring a full review


I’ve had this powder since last year and literally, I’m on the last bits of it. The powder comes in 53 shades. They describe this as a one-step powder and foundation that gives skin an ultra-matte finish with medium-to-full buildable coverage that lasts for 24 hours while controlling shine.

I have been using this as an everyday foundation for work and sometimes for occasions. I have the shade NW48 which has a golden undertone.

Honestly, I LOVE this foundation. It’s quite easy to buff into the skin and it gives a skin-like finish that is not too matte and not dewy. I don’t find it cakey which is really good for a powder foundation. It is has medium coverage and very easy to build up.  I love this because it’s quick and easy to use. I use this every morning before work and it only takes me about 5 to 10 mins to buff it into my skin. It works really well with a lot of primers. It also works well with or without a setting spray but I prefer to use a setting spray just for extra luminosity. It wears well throughout the day and doesn’t fade. In terms of oil control, I’m not the oiliest but I still find that by midday I would need to blot my t-zone.

Does it oxidise? Sometimes. For some reason, on some days this oxidises and looks slight grey towards the end of the day. Sometimes it looks worn by the 5th or 6th however but most days it’s fine. This foundation is not transfer-proof.

Does it work for dressed-up events? YES! When I have little time to get ready, I use this as a foundation over my concealer and add blush and highlighter. Because I can build coverage with it, it’s quite easy to use for dressed-up events too.

A lot of brushes work well with this foundation but the ones that I love are Elf Powder Brush and the Powder Blurring Brush. These brushes give an airbrush finish.


I have recommended the Studio Fix Plus Powder to almost everyone who tells me they want something quick and easy to use. The powder can also be used to set makeup, I use lightly if I want to set my foundation in place. It’s great to use as a foundation alone too. It’s easy to blend and has great coverage and you can set it with a setting spray or not. It comes in a lot of shades! The foundation lasts a while because I have been using it every day for at least a year and I am just about to finish it. As with all my foundations, this separates around my laugh lines.

I love it so much I bought a backup already even though I got the Bare Mineral Powder Foundation as a gift.

So is this worth the hype? YES.

I have a full review on the Studio Fix Liquid Foundation here

MAC Studio Fix Plus Powder Foundation is £27 on LookFanastic

Do you have this? Do you love it? MAC is still one of my favourite brands, I have a few of their items… maybe I will do a brand review.

I always recommend getting stuff on Look Fantastic because they always have a discount code available and most of the items including the high-end brands are included! The delivery is quite fast and I haven’t had any issues with them

Stay safe, catch you later

Is Fenty Beauty worth it?

It’s been a beautiful 3 years since Fenty Beauty and with every new release, the hype gets bigger and bigger. My girl AJ at ModebyTaylor asked me whether Fenty was worth the hype and I screamed YES! If you haven’t tried Fenty yet, here are my favourite products from them

Fenty Pro Filtr Foundation– RiRi blessed us with two foundation formulas, the original soft matte and a hydrating foundation. I have the original one and I really want the hydrating finish. Is this foundation worth it? Yes! It’s got shades (50), it’s got undertones plus the texture and finish are top-notch. This is a soft matte finish so I don’t find it extremely matte and it feels so lightweight on the skin. There is some talk of whether this oxides when dry. I don’t think it does but it does dry slightly darker. It feels so light on the skin and has a skin-like finish. I have the shade 430. I have swatched it alongside some of my other foundations

Concealer– do you know how much I love this concealer? I have 2 similar shades in it lol. I got 430 because it’s supposed to match my foundation but I wanted to get something brighter so I went for 400 too. They are quite similar tbh I could just go with 400. But why do I like this? The undertone. I love warm yellow/golden undertones and this undertone is perfect. The texture? It’s creamy, it’s thick, its medium coverage but buildable without been cakey. All concealers crease a little bit on me so this is no different but I really really REALLY like this. I have swatched some other concealers next to it

Matchsticks Trio in Deep- do you remember when Fenty first launched and we all found out that these were magnetic! Lol. These matchsticks are great for multi-use because they can be used for concealing, contouring, highlighting or blush. I really like mine for contouring and that works very well. Do you know they have released two darker shades? (come through shade range). I find it too matte to highlight underneath my eyes. I am slowing getting into cream highlighters so whilst I don’t use that shade much I do think its very pretty.

Killawatt highlighters- we all remember Trophy wife? We all do don’t lie. Whilst I have that shade tbh I don’t use it as much, it’s too intense but the other shades? I have picked Hustla baby, Afternoon snack and Mo Hunny which I absolutely love on my skin tone. I also have Penny4UTHOTS which I also love. There are two more shades I want: Ruby Richez and Ginger Binge and Moscow Mule. These are finely milled and blend easily on the skin. The duo always features a softer and more intense shade to mix and match. A few shades can also be used as blushes. They are pigmented and well worth it.

Bronzer- do you understand my excitement for these bronzers like seriously? I picked up Mocha Mami as soon as it came to the UK. It’s rich, it’s red but it gives so much warmth to the face. Its pigmented so you only need to dip once

Primer– the original primer doesn’t leave the skin too matte. I like using it with the Fenty foundation. They have a mini version of this and I really think it works well with the foundation.

Gloss bomb– I got the mini version in a set with the Hustla baby highlighter. I’ve literally only started getting into gloss (I know I’m late). It hasn’t got a lot of colour but is a lovely gloss if you love lipgloss.

Fenty setting spray- ok so this I got last month for my birthday and I haven’t used it but damn it its great ok? Lol. I love all setting sprays but the ones that give dewy/luminous finish are my favourites. This promises that and yes I haven’t used it because I haven’t worn makeup for a while but I love it ok? Simple

So is Fenty Beauty worth the hype? YES! They have the shades, they have the undertones, they have lipsticks, gloss, eyeshadows, body makeup etc etc. it’s a high-end brand but the prices are very competitive. If you can only get one item, you have to try the foundation. For 3 items go for foundation, matchsticks and bronzer. Another product worth getting is the setting powder- I find it quite matte so I mix it with another shade. The powder can be used undereye and all over the face and the shades are excellent. They also have mini sizes. It doesn’t have flashback

I have a few more of their products but these are my favourites. I haven’t tried everything and yes I do think some items are just ok as with every brand but I do think it’s worth it, whether it was RiRi or not.

Fenty Beauty is available in the UK via Harvey Nichols and Boots



Birthday Make up Haul

Happy Belated Birthday to meee!

I picked up a few makeup items for my birthday and I also got a few as gifts. I honestly can’t remember the last time I got new makeup so I’m excited! Check out what I got and swatches below!

NARS Blush– Savage. NARS recently expanded their blush shades which included Savage! This is described as a shimmering red-brown. How gorgeous is this shade? It doesn’t have chunky glitter and it feels so smooth on the skin! I can’t wait to use this! I think it will look good paired with a brown or nude lip but even a bold red lip too.

Becca Highlighter– Chocolate Geode- I remember when Becca released this shade 1 or 2 years ago and I LOVED it. I didn’t pick it up then because I’ve sort of been on a low makeup buy. I haven’t been buying makeup as often as I do with skincare because I have a lot of makeup with similar highlighter shades so as much as I really wanted it then I just didn’t need it. This year I got this as a present from my bf because I thought why the hell not? 2 years on and I still love it LOL. It’s a beautiful golden shade that looks so good on the skin. It was either this or the new Fenty Cognac Diamond bomb but went for the Becca because it doesn’t have chunky glitter. It’s very similar to their Topaz highlighter in the pan, but Chocolate Geode is more coppery

CoverFx Face Perfector Palette– Medium. I’ve been watching a lot of makeup videos lately and so when I saw this palette I knew I had to get it! This looks like the perfect travel palette featuring a contour/bronzer, blush and highlighters. I can see myself using every single shade. I will probably use that finishing powder as a highlighter and blush. The contour shade is dark enough for my skin tone for a subtle contour or bronzer. That blush shade is lovely and I also like you have two options for highlighter: a subtle shade ( heavenly and a popping shade(Twilight) the brightener, of course, can also be used as a highlighter as well as an inner corner brightener.

Jouer High Pigment Lipgloss– Champs Elysees- it only took me 26 years to finally love lipgloss LOL. I have hated lipgloss for a while simply because I couldn’t find any that were pigmented enough and not sticky. If I wanted shiny lips I could just use a lip balm. Last year Barry M lipgloss changed my life so I’ve been on the search. The Jouer High Pigment Lipgloss is just that, high pigment and no stickiness! I got the shade Champs Elysees which is a warm chocolatey pink. I love

Morphe Lipgloss– Free bird- another lipgloss I picked up was from Morphe in the shade Free bird. This is the perfect nude gloss. The camera is not doing my swatch any justice 😦

Fenty Eye Primer and Eyeliner– the NARS eyeshadow primer got me thinking about eye shadow primers. For the longest time, I have not enjoyed doing my eyeshadow looks because I have oily lids and somehow they always crease on me even if I use concealer & powder. Well NARS eyeshadow base changed all that for me so I decided to get the Fenty Eye primer to try as well. I got the mini version to test out first. I also received this as a present and it came as a set with a mini eyeliner. How cute is this? Shout out to Fenty for doing mini and travel sizes of their makeup!

Fenty Setting Spray– I am OBSESSED with setting sprays. I collect them, I use them, I love drenching my face with them. When Fenty came out with a setting spray, I knew it was a matter of time! Again I didn’t get it when it was first released because I actually have 15 setting sprays waiting to be used( like I actually got up to count LOL)My brother got me this for my birthday and I can’t wait to use it!

Path McGrath Skin Fetish Concealer and Mini Matte Trance Lipstick Trio– I got the concealer shade MD26 and lipstick trio in SkinShow. MD 26 is described as Medium Deep with neutral undertones. Skin Show has 3 mini nude shades in Omi, 1995 and Flesh 3. Storytime! I made my order on 3rd April but I never received an email confirmation of my order only a PayPal receipt. According to the website it takes about 24 to 48hours to pack and ship. With everything that is going on, I knew it may take longer which I don’t mind. By 8th April, I emailed them to say I haven’t received an email confirmation or an update regarding my order so it would be great to get an update. By 10th April, I hadn’t heard back so I emailed again saying hey my previous email was ignored I just want an update if I don’t hear back by a couple of days I will contact PayPal for a refund. I immediately got a response with the most condescending message ever: your order is waiting for shipment when it ships here is a tracking number! That’s it! No acknowledgement of my previous email, no mention of my order confirmation or when it will actually ship! To be honest I’m disappointed! I was so close to just cancelling it and getting something else! LookFantastic and even BOOHOO have been better at communicating during this time than a high-end luxury brand like Pat McGrath. I only ordered because there was an offer going on, 25% off everything and I wanted to see the hype of her stuff (I think it’s overpriced but we move). The swatches of the lipstick didn’t look that matte for me. The concealer though, its a heavy glass bottle and it feels so creamy. I think I want another shade! lol. I was debating on MD 26, MD25 and MD24 I went with MD 26 to be safe but I think I want MD24 too. Let’s see how this fairs

So one of the lipsticks I got had a slight defect. there was a white cast around the 1995 shade. I emailed them regarding this and asked if they could confirm what it was. To be honest from the customer service and the defect lipstick, it was a bittersweet anticlimax moment and I wasn’t happy at all. They emailed me back the next day with a full refund of the lipsticks and apologised but didn’t ask the questions I sent. I’m happy because they gave me a refund but I would have also liked to have my questions answered. Will I purchase from the website again? Probably if there is another sale, probably the delay with the information may just be due to the ongoing situation but I still find it really weird I didn’t get the order confirmation email. I don’t know if I even want to use that lipstick

That’s all folks! I’m excited to use these items. I haven’t bought new makeup for a while

simply because I have been focusing on using up what I have! It was my birthday so I used that as an excuse to get some items I have wanted for a while now.

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer Review

The Ordinary Colours is the makeup range from the brand. It features two types of foundations: High Coverage and Serum foundation, I have reviews of both of them on the blog. There are also two primers and today’s post is a full review on the High-Adherence Silicone Primer.

The High-Adherence Silicone Primer promises to smooth and blur the appearance of skin. it gives a matte yet hydrated appearance and can be used alone as a non-greasy hydrator or as a primer before makeup application.


I really like silicone-based primers because of the smooth effect they give the skins o when the released this I knew I had to try it. The texture of tis primer is very lightweight compared t other silicone primers I have used, it also feels very hydrating on the skin. It doesn’t have any particular scent. The primer comes in an easy to use squeezy tube.

The primer layers well with other products and once pill. Compared to other silicone primers I have used, this one doesn’t have a powdery feel. I don’t think it leaves the skin matte or even gives a matte appearance, if anything it leaves a dewy finish because I have been using this during the fall/winter with powder foundations and my skin still looks dewy. On the left-hand side is where I have blended the primer out.

In terms of smoothing and blurring the skin, the primer has some effect although its’ not a massive one. My skin doesn’t feel dry during the day or matte. I have normal to combination skin and towards the end of the day, I find my tzone slightly oily and need to blot.


I really like this primer. I don’t think it gives a matte finish as The Ordinary claim, rather it leaves the skin looking hydrated. The primer does give a smoother appearance to the skin however if you have really large pores I would recommend something else. For a silicone primer, it’s very lightweight on the skin and does not have that powdery feel associated with silicone primers. For the price, I think it’s excellent and it’s a great everyday use primer, which is what I use it for.

High-Adherence Silicone Primer is £3.90 on Deciem
