I had an email arrive this week celebrating the one year anniversary of The Ordinary skincare, which made me think now might be a good time to write my thoughts on the range. I was very late in the game with jumping on The Ordinary hype, but in the relatively short space of time I’ve been using their skincare I’ve converted quite a few other people onto using them, which I guess is testament to how effective the products have been!
The biggest selling point of The Ordinary is that they are a no nonsense, no frills, affordable skincare range which allows you to create your own bespoke skincare regimen. Each tiny glass bottle begins at an incredibly affordable £7.
I am forever purchasing lipstick from various brands in essentially the same shade, almost always unintentionally. Recently this happened with a Morphe liquid lipstick. Thinking I had potentially found the ultimate peachy nude that my collection was lacking in, I realise upon arrival it’s actually very similar to a liquid lipstick I was sent by By Chloe Ferry (yup, Chloe Ferry of Geordie Shore fame). But which was the best? Here’s a comparison of the two.
The two shades I’m talking about today are the Morphe Liquid Lipstick in Brunch and the By Chloe Ferry Matte Lip Gloss in Passion.
My split ends ravaged hair was in desperate need of a trim, and with it being practically winter, I felt a colour refresh to embrace the new season would also do it the world of good. Hello new inky rich, blacker than black, blue black hair!

To compensate the lack of blogging here’s a bit of beauty/fashion post in one! Is it just me or is everyone still on the hunt for the perfect matte brown lippy? Well, don’t get too excited because I still haven’t found it, but a close contender is this Jeffree Star delight in Dominatrix, modelled above. (more…)
