My Niche Fragrance Collection

A fragrance is often used as a mood-lifter or that finishing touch before you leave the house. Depending on your destination, that might something sensual or delicate, powerful or polite. To me, perfume is one of life's pleasures and adventuring into the more obscure or less mainstream scents is something I really enjoy. Those in the beauty community may be familiar with most of these, however I would say that there may be some lesser-known treasures here for those who are thinking of a unique gift for a loved one.

Review: Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara

The Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara was part of my March/ April 2016 favourites and seven months on, I still love it. 

The mascara has a bristle, rather than plastic brush and packs a lot of product within those dense bristles. I find it quite similar to the YSL Faux Cils mascara, minus the fact that the YSL dries up ridiculously quickly. 

Perfect for everyday wear, this mascara emphasises length and adds volume, but doesn't clump unless you really pack it on. The formula is fairly creamy and pigmented, not runny and wet. You can build it up somewhat to add to the volume.

Overall, I would recommend this one for people with mid to long lashes who want definition and some wearable volume.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer Review (Vanilla, Creme Brulee and Honey)

Vanilla, Creme Brulee, Honey 
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer comes in an array of shadea, with some more recent additions, including Creme Brulee (a fair shade with pink undertone which is a shade darker than Vanilla). I use three shades for different purposes: Vanilla for adding radiance, Honey for colour correcting under my eyes and Creme Brulee for finishing touches to dark areas.
