Feminism and Beauty

This post is inspired by several things. The first is Gemsmaquillage's video on Feminism, Makeup and Advertising and the second is Sali Hughes' book Pretty Honest. I was going to a video of my own but I realised that it would probably turn out to be rambling mess so writing everything down in a post is the best way forward.

Review: B. Foundation and Mascara

Today I'm reviewing two products from one brand. The B. Flawless Foundation and B. Louder mascara. You can get B. from Superdrug (I believe it's own brand) and it's got quite a large following, particularly because it is not tested on animals. Animal testing is very touchy subject in the world of beauty, and is not one I am going to be talking about in this blog post.

Review: Benefit They're Real Liner

I've written a few 'controversial' blog posts in the last year or so. Mainly showing my dislike of products that are considered 'holy grail' by others. This time, I'm declaring my love for a product that others have disliked.

When Benefit were offering their deal of taking in an old eyeliner to get a free sample of They're Real Liner I was at my local Boots before you could say 'free sample'.

Review: La Roche-Posay Anti-Blemish System

It's a well known fact that I am a big fan of La Roche-Posay, especially Effaclar Duo both in its original and revamped formula. So when they offered to send me their new Anti-Blemish to try out I jumped at the chance.

What's on my desk?

I love having my own desk. It's a space that's mine. I can be as messy or as clean as I like. Although, if another person asks if I got a pink one so my boyfriend wouldn't use it I shall despair at society's ideas of colour, and point out I wanted the green one, but IKEA didn't deliver it. Anyway, rant aside. I love my desk. It's the IKEA Micke desk, I picked it because I can add extensions and units to it as and when I want to. It's a good size, easily fitting my laptop and bits of paper on. The fact that it has the splashes of pink on means that I don't have to worry about painting it, and breaks up the white.
