DUPE ALERT!!! - MAC Subculture

Saturday, 21 February 2015

So after a quick visit to MAC to buy my products in need... Which always seem to run out at the same time, I thought I would try the MAC's Subculture lip liner. And as it was the last one on the shelf, I thought to myself, I better grab it now! 

So about the lip liner

As with all MAC lip liners, it goes on smoothly and evenly. However on my skin tone, and I'm an NC20, it dies on me and my lips look like there is no life to them. I always like to colour them all in with the lip liner as it acts as a base and makes my lipstick last the whole day. I find that I have to put a pop of colour to liven them up and not only just a gloss.

Now onto the post title... DUPE! Yes, I found a Dupe for this lip liner and funny enough, I had actually spoken about it on a recent post I did. My Kylie Jenner DUPES. 

They are both really amazing lip liners. And I can honestly say I found no difference in them whatsoever except for the price of course.

How many of you have tried Subculture? Or even Caramel Nougat? Let me know your thoughts or even other DUPES.

Have a lovely Saturday!

Sleek Face Form in Light

Friday, 20 February 2015

Last week I was a model for a friend of mine who is starting up her own little business as a make up artist for asian brides and events, and one of the products she used on me was this amazing palette by Sleek. It's called the Sleek Face Form and it is amazing! I love the design of the palette and how sleek it is. 

The first time I used it, I found the contour powder a bit ashy on the face and it reminded me of the Benefit Hoola which I only use in the evening or on a night out as it is quite dark. However it is very beautiful. 

The highlight is amazing and had a beautiful iridescent sheen. The blush is very beautiful when on. It is more of a rose gold tone. All the colours mix into a beautiful healthy look on the skin. 

I bought the Face Form in the shade Light but I feel that I can only use it in the evening as the colours are quite strong for the day. I'm an NC20 for those of you who want to know what skin tone I am. I'll definitely use it during the day in the summer. It will give you a beautiful beach babe summer look. 

Also what I didn't know was that Face Form is the sister product of the Face Contour Kit.

The colour ranges are Fair, Light, Medium & Dark.

As I love this product, I'll definitely be purchasing it in Fair so that I can use it during the day.

I have to also say I really am loving their packaging. It look gorgeous in your make up bag and really is very 'Sleek'

Let me know what you think. Has anyone also purchased this gorgeous palette?

Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

Thursday, 12 February 2015

So if there is one exfoliator I am totally faithful to, it has to be the amazing One-Step Gentle Exfoliator Cleanser with Orange Extracts by Clarins. I cannot count the number of times I have re purchased this amazing product and not only that, I have actually convinced a lot of people into also purchasing this exfoliator. One of my closest friends bought it last week as she was in need of one and of course, I had to drag her to a Clarins counter. You can check out her amazing blog http://laurathinksabout.blogspot.co.uk

So back to this wonderful product...

This exfoliator couldn't get any more gentle that it is. It feels so amazing on the skin and so refreshed once you use it. The smell is amazing especially when you use it in the morning. You can actually feel the skin clean with no traces of dirt. I have actually then toned my skin and have taken the cotton pad away with no traces of make up. It removes embedded impurities and dead surface cells to reveal only glowing skin. It's fantastic for flaky skin. Removes everything within minutes only to reveal clear glowing skin.

"Orange extract softens, refreshes and revives. Moringa Seed extract purifies and refines while preserving your skin’s natural moisture level. Gentle Silica Microbeads tackle clogged pores. Now that’s refreshing!" - Clarins


- Gentle cleansing agents: remove makeup and thoroughly cleanse.

- Moringa seed extract: detoxifies by removing the residue and neutralising the effects of toxic air-pollution.

- Orange extract: refreshes, tones, revives.

- Two types of microbeads: clear pores and polish away unwanted surface oils and dead skin cells

The Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliator is fantastic for all skin types - Normal, Dry, Combination and Oily and this makes it a really special exfoliator.

Have you tried the Clarins One-Step Exfoliator? I'd love to know your thoughts.
