    Glamglow Supermud – Worth The Hype (and Price)?

    Last week, after much deliberation I decided to make a financial commitment to my face. I didn’t do this lightly because it’s a £42 commitment in fact. I do believe that sometimes it’s worth splashing out on higher quality skin care. After reading all the hype over the Glamglow Supermud, I really wanted to try it out for myself. I often post my facemasks on Instagram, so it’s something that is part of my usual skin care routine. Supermud quickly became the top of my must-have list. So here is the before: I’m in the middle of a breakout. I have combination skin and it is in need of some…

    Budget Metallic Liquid Lipstick – MUA

    While it’s nice to splurge the fuck out and nab some sweet high-end make-up, I prefer a mix of fancy and financially smart. If you want to test out a budget metallic liquid lipstick then MUA is the brand for you. With a sweet £4 price point, it’s a great place to start trying out something a bit different. I will run through the colours and how I feel about them below. Twinkle is first up. It’s a metallic black, with a silver shimmer. As it’s a gloss feel, and goes on super smooth. It can look a lip patchy but if you work with it, it works right back.…

    Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip – Shadow

    I have long been a fan of unusual lip colours and I am over the moon with the current trends of blues and greys. When I was browsing in Superdrug the other day, this Rimmel Liquid Lip – Shadow totally caught my eye. I have to say straight off the bat, I really don’t like flat doe-foot applicator wands, however, many people find them easier to use. That’s a personal preference thing. It applies so smoothly, feels very creamy and dries down in about 2 minutes. As with most matte liquid lips, apply to primed lips. The colour is super rich so apply slowly to get the desired even coat.…

    How To Get Silky Smooth Legs

    Not everyone enjoys the process of removing hair, I however have always preferred to have smooth legs and pits. I feel fresher afterwards but it has taken years to get to this point. I have tried many different methods over the years. Everything from hair removal creams to waxing. I have now got a process that I really enjoy. How to Get Silky Smooth Legs: Make sure your bath or shower is nice and warm, and that you have been in there at least 15 minutes. This makes it less likely that you will get nicks from a razor because the hair will be softer and the follicles will be…

    A Close Shave with Friction Free Shaving

    A couple of weeks ago I went off to a cocktail making masterclass at All Bar One Snowhill, Birmingham, to hear about Friction Free Shaving. On arrival, we were gifted with a rose gold ‘Samantha’, which had been engraved with our names. I honestly loved that idea. I have to admit I’m such a lazy git when it comes to keeping my razor in tip-top condition and am pretty good at shaving with minimal time and almost rusty razors. Using this was always going to be a bit of a revelation. However, the weightedness of it, the smoothness of the grip, the 5 razor bars, the rubber bar that lifts hair…
