Frivolous but fab: BKR

I grew up on bottled water in Hong Kong because tap water, at least when we first got there, was over treated and tasted like the shallow end of your local swimming pool - not nice. However, when I moved back to the UK for university, I just couldn’t get back into drinking the British tap water. I know it sounds stupid and trivial, and that’s because it is, but I would find myself avoiding it to the point that I would get seriously dehydrated almost daily. I came up with the excuse that I could buy bottled water as my one ‘thing’ - I hardly drink alcohol, I don’t smoke, so I can treat myself to bottled water.

Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipsticks

I’m not usually one to write a single product/like review, but the new Rouge Velvet Lipsticks from Bourjois have really impressed me - not an easy feat after 10 or so years of being fully immersed in the beauty community.

Not worth the hype or the price tag, but still damn pretty

If you’re someone that follows beauty releases, then you’ll know full well that there are quite a few products that tend to be carried away in a sea of excitement and then end up being somewhat overhyped. That by no means mean that they aren’t any good - most of them are still quality products but they don’t necessarily deserve the praise that they may be receiving any more than any other quality product.

So bad it's good

The perfect mascara is so hard to find because both our eyelashes and expectations are individual (huge shocker!) so what gives your lashes such volume that they acquire their own gravitational pull may leave mine looking floppy and extremely underwhelming. Despite this, there have somehow always been clear favourites that stand out from the gazillion offerings on the high street, but this my friends definitely isn't one of them.
