May 2016 Favourites

May 2016 Favourites Carex Fun Edition Bubble Gum Hand Gel* (link) The first product to make it into my May 2016 Favourites is the Carex Fun Edition Bubble Gum Hand Gel. I actually did a full review of this product along with another scent in the range so if you are interested, be sure to read my Fun Hygiene: Carex Fun Edition Hand Gels post. Usually I find with hand gels and sanitizers they can be quite strongly scented with alcohol because that is often the main ingredient for killing bacteria but with this hand gel I feel like the…

Under £3 Sigma Eyeshadow Brush Dupes

Under £3 Sigma Eyeshadow Brush Dupes A few months back I purchased this set of Sigma eyeshadow brush dupes from AliExpress (link) which cost me just £2.22 including postage and packaging. That’s right I got eight brushes for under £3. I’ve had around three or four months of trying these brushes out so I thought I would share my thoughts on the set as they’re amazing value for money. Firstly you might have noticed that these brushes are similar in appearance to brushes produced by the famous makeup brush brand, Sigma. I personally have never tried any Sigma brushes as I’ve…

My Most Reached For Eyeshadow Brushes

My Most Reached For Eyeshadow Brushes Real Techniques Dupe – Oval Shaped Eyeshadow Brush (link) My first most reached for brush would definitely have to be my Real Techniques Oval Shaped Eyeshadow Brush dupe which I got in my Real Techniques Bold Metals Brush Dupes set. This brush is quite large in size but I still find it excellent for quickly applying colour all over the lid, especially if it is a base shade to counteract my eyelid veining. The brush is incredibly soft and surprisingly great quality. I’ve washed the brush around five or six times now and I can’t…

December 2015 Favourites

Real Techniques Bold Metals 301 Flat Contour Brush Dupe (link) I love a good makeup brush and I love a good makeup brush dupe even more so it is probably no surprise to many that the Real Techniques Bold Metals 301 Flat Contour Brush Dupe from AliExpress made it into my December Favourites. This is just a great brush for blending out contouring to a natural but sculpted finish. The brush is super soft, it doesn’t shed, regains its shape really well after washing and lets be totally honest, it is super pretty. If you do wish to get your…

MAC Eyeshadow Brush Dupes For Under £2

MAC Eyeshadow Brush Dupes For Under £2 When it comes to makeup brushes I’ll be honest, I really dislike paying an arm and a leg for them. Now I know that makeup brushes are incredibly important tools that help you achieve great makeup looks, however, I’ve got to admit, the bargain hunter within me just loves a good deal. To get a good deal I tend to avoid buying brushes from specific brush shops as I often find they place a hefty markup price on their tools so I tend to buy directly from brush manufacturers on one of my…

Real Techniques Bold Metals Brush Dupes

Real Techniques Bold Metals Brush Dupes When Real Techniques released their newest Bold Metals Brushes I was an eager beaver to get my hands on the pretty looking makeup tools, however, when I saw the hefty price tag of each brush I was instantly turned off. At between £10 and £25 per brush I thought they were really quite extortionate. Now Real Techniques do state that the range is more luxurious in comparison to the original line and that is why the brushes are more pricey. Having said that, I still cannot justify spending that amount of money on one…
