Quick Reviews #31: Glossier

Glossier Review - All Dolled Up

I don’t like it when Camilla goes away – I feel like I’m missing a limb. Of course, I can’t complain because I’m out of the country for a good few months every year but I reserve the right to have double standards. So I was thrilled when she and Emma returned from gallivanting in Paris earlier this month but secretly also really excited that they brought some Glossier treats with them! Frankly, it’s the least she could do for abandoning me for 10 days.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer: Worth the Splurge?

I was very fortunate to be sent a Dyson Supersonic to test for two weeks – I literally squealed with excitement when it arrived. I have been blow drying my hair for nearly 20 years, and have been using a salon-quality hairdryer (Parlux) for almost 15 of those years, so I really feel like I am qualified to give you a thorough review on the pros and cons (of which there is only one, to be fair) of this magnificent piece of equipment. The engineers (103 of them!) behind the Dyson Supersonic aimed to create a dryer that could style…

Quick Reviews #30 // Some New Summer Body Products

Summer is just around the corner, and the thought of having to bare my winter limbs has me in a bit of a panic. I loathe lying in the sun/going to the beach, so I have to fake it when it comes to tanning/not looking like Powder. Today I’m going to run you through some new additions which I think are brilliant: a wash-off bronzing lotion, a body butter that smells like summer in a tube, and a body oil so glorious, you will never want to wash it off. CHANEL N°5 Fragments D’Or* Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?…

Jules’ October Favourites

Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter in 200 Medium* Good highlighters are unfortunately rather difficult to find at the drugstore, let alone in a subtle, creamy formula that isn’t full of chunky glitter. Luckily for me, Maybelline sent us their version so I put it to the test in a First Impressions video earlier in the year and was thrilled with the result! I’ve been using it regularly ever since but for some reason I keep forgetting to put it in my monthly favourites. The shade 200 is spot on for me – it gives the cheekbones a slightly peachy…
