ver since I first started using liquid foundations as part of my daily make-up routine, I've always gravitated towards the ones with matte finishes. This was always largely because of my combination skin type, as I felt the matte finish would help control my oily T-zone, however, I have come to the conclusion that matte finishes do nothing but aggravate the production of sebum which is the contrary result of what I look for when it comes to my base. After realising that matte finish foundations are what, instead of improving the look of my skin, made it worse, I decided to give the Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup Foundation with SPF20 a try, and let me tell you, I could not have made a better decision.

his range seemed to work quite well with my skin for a while. So for a good amount of time my initial review, which can be found here truly did apply, however, I felt it necessary to go ahead and type up this blog post and share my whole experience and the events that followed my first review.

he Clean and Clear Essentials range is one that I always return to in times of need and for the past month my skin had gone completely berserk. It was breaking out on a daily basis. I kept on using the Aveeno range, attempting to clear it up, however, it was definitely not working out. Daily I would wake up to painful zits (TMI, sorry guys) and nothing seemed to stop the ongoing torture hormones were inflicting to my face so I thought it was time to return to my trusty Clean and Clear Range and as expected it worked, as it always does. In this post I will be reviewing the entire range, going into detail about each of the products, as well as if and how well they have worked for me in the past.

very fortnight my university campus gets taken over by tents, marquees and stands packed to the rim by all types of fashion items both vintage and new, from clothing, to shoes, to bags. Most pieces are extremely affordable which I think is very convenient to a campus full of trend stricken youth, so today, during a long awaited break, I grabbed a friend, raided the spellbinding racks, and with vintage clothing, pin-up style and money to spend, this day could not have gotten any better.
ven though I am broke and really cannot afford to shop right now, when I saw that Topshop had a 30-70% off sale I just had to have a look, and as expected I did not walk out of there empty handed. As I went through the sale racks, quite a few items stood out to me, however, with the help of my awesome, stylish best friend, I decided upon these harem trousers.
he makeup we typically associate with the 80s, the bold, colourful looks were not a must have for everyone. The more classy, elegant look of the decade was all about careful balance, with both eyes and lips carefully,but not dramatically defined.
