Lesser Known Urban Decay Products – Review, Swatches, Photos

One of my favourite things about working in makeup, is learning about everything a brand offers and trying products I had probably never even heard of.

L.O.V. – An Introduction

I was sent a little goodie bag full of L.O.V products before Christmas and I had never even heard of the ┬ábrand before.

L’Oreal was a brand that I heard so many great things about but rarely tried, mainly because price-wise – when it comes to drugstore – they are on the higher end of the scale. I am a huge fan of Nicole Guerriero and she has been waxing lyrical about the True Match foundation for years… Continue reading Brand Breakdown: L’Oreal Foundations
