…and I have some pretty strong opinions about which ones are actually worth it. The first thing I have to say is that, variety-wise, they’ve really stepped things up this year. I remember previous calendars being essentially 40% mini shower gels, at least 3 lip balms, 3 hand creams, and enough containers of body butter... / READ MORE /
I'm somewhat of a setting spray hoarder, I must admit. I'm not one to use a spray as a primer, but I do use them for applying shimmer shadows, spraying onto beauty sponges for use with foundations to get a better result, and of course, setting my makeup. I tried out the Revlon Prep, Set, Refresh spray for all three. / READ MORE /
We live in an age where we are bombarded with new makeup every week, and unless you’re a billionaire chances are there’s a huge number of products you’ll never get. This is where used makeup come in to save the day! We're looking at Glambot, a used makeup retailer, and the sanitation of their products. / READ MORE /
Two weeks ago I wrote about Love Me Beauty's new range - Phase Zero. Now it's time for a review. They claim to be high-end quality, comparable to the most luxurious of brands, but are sold at "factory prices" for their members. We'll be the judge of that! / READ MORE /
Usually when we review a product on Beauty Markdown, it’s something new or trending that you might not have tried before – but today’s post is about a hairbrush that has existed in one form or another for 133 years. It’s the OG fancy hair tool, and this baby doesn’t come cheap. I’m the kind... / READ MORE /
I reviewed Freedom's super budget friendly makeup for two months. Some of it is totally amazing. Some is so-so. Want to know which is which and see some cute swatches? Read on! Nothing in the article costs more than £4! / READ MORE /
I’m a big fan of Liz Earle’s classic cleanser – it easily removes makeup, the packaging is great, I love the smell. It’s almost perfect… However, sometimes I wince a bit at paying £14.50 for only 100ml of product. You all know how much I enjoy testing out dupes for you, and when I heard Aldi... / READ MORE /
Hey! Ever since our first Glossier post, I’ve been trying out lots of their products, and I’m going to attempt to dupe the ones that are my favourites. Although Glossier isn’t the most expensive brand out there, it’s certainly not high street prices. Today I’m taking on maybe Glossier’s most famous and most hyped item... / READ MORE /
Yes, you read that right, these are our absolute favourite beauty bits for pound shop prices. There’s a lot of nail things on here, but when we say holy grail we really mean we don’t think more expensive products are any better, which is hard to say for most makeup that’s under a pound. Cotton... / READ MORE /
If you’ve been paying attention to the beauty blogging world over the past year or so you’ll have definitely heard of Glossier by now (pronounced, somewhat pretentiously, to rhyme with dossier). It’s a beauty and skincare line from the team behind uber cool beauty site Into the Gloss. Glossier is an online store, pretty much... / READ MORE /
I’ve actually been using this on and off for a few weeks, and it’s taken a permanent place in my regular make up collection (you know, the 10% of my cosmetics I actually use – rather than the stuff neatly stored, which when asked about, I get all defensive and say it’s all being “saved” or for “special occasions” and no I absolutely don’t want to throw any of it away!) / READ MORE /
As a beauty blogger I’m lucky to be given lots of free makeup to review on here – and I usually try out at least one thing from every box but there’s always something that is the wrong colour, or I’d never normally use. I try and give my excess products to friends and family,... / READ MORE /
I’m definitely become more interested in going cruelty free with my makeup recently, and I’ve decided to start tagging my posts with it to help anyone who is looking for new CF options. And a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to the relaunch party for Superdrug’s vegan and cruelty free B... / READ MORE /
