Reviews & Swatches

I will never endorse a product unless I genuinely like it, or if it doesn’t work for me personally, but I know it will be great for others i.e. different skin type I will say so. This openness is true regardless of whether the product was supplied free or I purchased it myself. 

When I swatch eyeshadows, I typically show them over primer and naked skin to show the difference in the photo. I also always swatch using a brush as this is how I typically apply eyeshadow. Some shadows such as glitters may require a sponge or finger application. In these instances I will mention in the post how the swatches have been applied. 


I do occasionally link to an affiliate within a blog post and also have links and banners throughout my site. Being an affiliate allows me to collect small amounts of commission from sales if a person purchases a product (no additional cost to the buyer) after visiting my blog.

By clicking on affiliate links within my site you are helping to keep the site going. Unfortunately, I don't earn very much from these links, so I’m not about to retire on a yacht sailing the Caribbean, but every little helps, so I thank you in advance for clicking and buying.
