Sorry for putting this review up after Halloween. It’s been pretty out of control over here. I have my university final exams starting THIS FRIDAY! :O So blogging hasn’t been something I’ve had much time for. Hopefully by the end of this month I can put more things out here, but my last exam isn’t...

Madd Cat Monthly Box 1 – Review & Swatches – Bluegrass, Infinite Ammo, Ever After, Raven Feathers, Blue Lagoon

The idea of monthly subscription boxes has always excited me to a degree, but I’m always let down because I can never seem to find one that offers products that I can actually use and that won’t misalign with my cosmetic ethics. The only vegan and eco-friendly subscription boxes I have found have been terribly...

September Stinks: Sweet Tea Apothecary REVIEW

You ever have perfume stashed away, that you mean to always wear and share but then…you know…it gets lost in the hoarde with all the other pretties and time goes on and your memory isn’t as good as it was and you only realise you’ve purchased them when you decide to do a spring clean?...

September Stinks – Indie perfume review of Lou Lous Soaps Scrubs and Scents

Lou Lou’s Soaps Scrubs and Scents is a place I’ve shopped with on a recommendation from Evonne (of Darling Clandestine notoriety), and I have always kept meaning to chat about Lou Lou’s more often on this blog, but I always keep losing my dram vials I am a beacon of organisation and tidiness! Well no...

This is my first foray into ZOMG smells. They’ve been a company that’s been on my ‘to-try’ list for a while, but I always get caught up with new indie perfumeries that I forget all the other I have listed. I decided to get in with this new limited collection, Jerk-Ass Botany, and try a...

September Stinks – 30 Days of indie perfume discussion

With so many indie perfumes laying around, I’ve decided to actually try and finally get some reviews of my perfumes out of the way for this month. Last month was a terribly inactive month on my blog (getting used to the back to uni routine coupled with a bunch of assignments thrown at me all...

Kiss My Sass cosmetics – Lip Glazes – swatches and review

Not a fan of sticky, ultra shiny “my lips are made of shiny plastic” lip glosses? Neither am I. I just don’t like how they make the lips look unnaturally devoid of natural texture (no, I don’t think chapped lips look attractive, but seeing the natural lip lines we all have and not have them...

8 Bit Cosmetics – Brassy Bits Collection – Swatch + Review

This is the first new brand that I’ve tried in some while. I became a little put off trying new companies a few months ago due to hearing about various indie brands doing varioud dodgy things. So it’s taken me a little while to get back in to the swing of  ‘trying something new’. 8...

A few months ago when I blogged a FOTD in which I was tired and had no sleep, I was complaining about the lines under my eyes and how I felt a little scared that time was starting to catch up (LMFAO I am 25, I can be dramatic at times), so a few days...

Did you know that Solstice Scents creates more than beautifully intriguing and fascinating perfumes? They also offer skincare products as well. I haven’t seen the skincare products discussed much outside of the Solstice Scents forums, but I’ve always wanted to try. I was quite happy with just using the witch hazel toner I was buying...
