Barry M Flawless Matte Foundation in Cocoa

Epiphannie Says The Barry Flawless Matte Foundation in Cocoa is the darkest shade in this Barry M foundation range at the moment. It’s a little too dark and red for me to wear but I wanted to chart the difference between all the dark skin shade on my face rather than on my arm.   Where To Buy    …

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Beige

Epiphannie Says While I think the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Beige is a little bit too cool for my skintone, I will admit that this powder highlighter from Bobbi Brown is quite stunning. Formulated to give the skin a subtle, lightweight glow, this highlighter is for those who want to achieve an understated glow to the skin. If you…

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color in Parisian Red

Epiphannie Says I love a good red lipstick but I’m not loving the Bobbi Brown Parisian Red Luxe Lip Color Lipstick as I think – dare I say it – that it has a little bit too much slip. I’m all for a hydrating red lipstick especially when I’m feeling a little bit classic but I honestly felt that the Bobbi Brown…

bareMinerals Gen Nude Lip Lacquer in Yaaas

Epiphannie Says I probably would never wear the bareMinerals Yaaas Gen Nude Lip Lacquer on its own – in my opinion it looks SO much better over a nude lipstick or nude lippencil – but I wanted to catalogue how this nude lipgloss from Bare Minerals looks when worn on its own. I’m a big fan of the bareMinerals Gen Nude Lip…

Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss in Brun Rose (21)

Epiphannie Says When I saw the Kiko Brun Rose 3D Hydra Lipgloss (21) in the Kiko Cosmetics Store in Covet Garden, I was immediately drawn to this taupe-brown lipstick. I’m going to be honest by saying that I could dupe this lipgloss very easily in my makeup collection as I am naturally drawn to pink-brown lip products as I think…

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink in Fighter (75)

Epiphannie Says   I’m not sure what it is about the Maybelline Fighter Super Stay Matte Ink (75) but I’m just not a fan. I don’t know if my issue is with the shade itself, the way it applies on the lips or the general texture of this liquid lipstick but this lipstick just gets a no from me. To…

Guerlain Rouge G De Guerlain Lip Colour in Flaming Red (823)

Epiphannie Says Let me just start off by saying that I COMPLETELY disagree with Guerlain that the Guerlain Flaming Red Rouge G De Guerlain Lip Colour (823) is ‘perfect for blondes’ – honestly in 2018, brands shouldn’t make those kinds of statements about beauty products anymore . . . it is unneeded. . . this lipstick would look good on anyone.…

Fenty Beauty Ma Damn Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick

Epiphannie Says If there is one thing, we can agree on is that Rihanna does a matte red lipstick well. The Fenty Beauty Ma’Damn Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick is a vivid, cherry red lipstick with a comfortable, matte finish. When applying this lipstick across my lips, I did notice a bit of drag but it is considerably easier to apply than…

Buxom Plumpline Lip Liner in Espionage

Epiphannie Says The Buxom Espionage Plumpline Lip Liner is a warm, dark berry lip pencil with an incredibly pigmented formula – like the pigment in this formula is exceptional – this lip pencil from Buxom does have a matte finish but I can report that it still feels quite creamy on the lips. The size of the pencil-tip on this jumbo crayon actually…
