Best Of Rimmel Makeup Review - Aspiring Londoner

I have loved Rimmel for as long as I remember.  Their liquid liner was the first proper makeup I bought at the age of 16, and I’ve been loyal ever since!  I’ve previously raved about the Rimmel GlamEyes Liquid Eye Liner (review here), the Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl Liner in Nude (review here), the Rimmel Provocalips Lip Colours (review here) and the Rimmel Soft Kohl Pencil in Jet Black (review here).  As I’ve raved enough about this products, I wanted to share some other products that I think are absolutely amazing from Rimmel.

Beauty Gadgets | YOSO Trim

YOSO Trim Beauty Pen Hair Trimmer Review - Aspiring Londoner

I’m a tech fan; I love all things techy; growing up with brothers will do that to you.  What I love more is use of gadget in beauty.  They help us look good in less amount of time.

Indeed Labs Fillume Volumising Moisturiser

Indeed Labs Fillume Volumising Moisturiser Review - Aspiring  Londoner

You know I love Indeed Labs products, I've previously reviewed the Hydraluron serum (review here) and the Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask (review here).  For me, it’s a product I know wont irritate my skin and hydrate it.  When I spotted Indeed Labs had a new moisturiser, I was all ears!

Budget Buy | B. Beauty Makeup Brushes

Budget Buy Superdrug B Beauty Brush Review - Aspiring Londoner

On Twitter, I see a lot of people asking about budget makeup brushes and most of the times the suggestions are for Real Techniques.  RT brushes are definitely the first brush line that raised the game for drugstore makeup brushes.  Since then a lot of other brands have followed suite but none have quite matched up.

Best Of | Too Faced Cosmetics

Best Of Too Faced Cosmetics Makeup Review - Aspiring Londoner

Too Faced is one of those brands I’ve always wanted to try but never did as it wasn’t so readily available.  Their packaging is always so on point!  In the last year or so, I’ve seen Too Faced crop up more and more.  Some of their products like the chocolate palette and the sweetheart blushes have become cult products.  I’ve rounded up some of my favourite products if you’re looking to try out some Too Faced products.

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Range Review

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Range Review - Aspiring Londoner

I have recently had ‘the chop’.  I was bored of my long hair for quite some time, and seeing a photo of RHW’s chop on instagram made up my mind for me.   I will post about my experience of this soon.  After having my hair chopped I wanted to go a little lighter with my hair colour.

5 Beauty Essentials You Don't Need To Splurge On

5 Beauty Essentials You Don't Need To Splurge On - Aspiring Londoner

As a beauty blogger, I do spend significantly more on beauty and makeup products than your average gal.  But there are things that I never spend more than a couple of quid on, because in my opinion, there’s just no need to.

The Dry Shampoo Edit

Dry Shampoo Review ft. Batiste, Dove, Paul Mitchell - Aspiring Londoner

Since I’ve discovered dry shampoos, I’ve never been without them.  I have extremely oily scalp, some days my hair is greasy the same day I’ve washed it.  It’s a real problem, which only gets worse in the warmer months.  I’ve always relied on Batiste to sort me out.

5 Under £5 Review ft Rimmel, Collection, Maybelline - Aspiring Londoner

Drugstores have improved leaps and bounds from when I was a teenager.  I used to struggle to buy anything decent for under a fiver.  Whereas now you can buy some amazing products that can give their expensive counterparts a run for their money.  I’m going to share five of my current favourites under £5 that you need to try out.

Budget Buy | Good Things Argan Oil Nourishing Cleansing Oil

Budget Buy | Good Things Argan Oil Nourishing Cleansing Oil Review - Aspiring Londoner

Good Things is a fairly new brand to me.  I was intrigued by the brand as it’s free from sulphates, animal ingredients, mineral oils and parabens.  You don’t often get drugstore/high street brands who exclude these nasties for the price tag.

Sudocrem | Miracle Worker for Acne?

Sudocrem Skin Care Cream for Acne Review - Aspiring Londoner

Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of people swear by Sudocrem as their miracle product in battling acne/blemishes.  I must  say I remained cynical.  I’m never a believer in nappy creams etc. being used as normal skincare routines.  The reason being, it won’t do what a targeted treatment will do for your skin.

Following on from my drugstore hydrating masks post, I wanted to share some luxury face masks (i.e. over £20) that work that little bit better. Some of these are targeted for specific concerns which some of us might find helpful.

I have tried so may things over the years from Estee Lauder, it was rather difficult to pick just a few products.  From skincare to makeup, EL has some legendary products that you just shouldn't be without!

Travels | The White Cliffs Of Dover

White Cliffs of Dover, Kent - Aspiring Londoner

Last autumn, we decided to throw caution to the wind and go on a bit of a road trip.  One of the stops was somewhere we’ve always wanted to visit, Dover.  I’ve wanted to see the White Cliffs of Dover for the longest time, but living in the North East means literally travelling across the country to go there!

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask Review - Aspiring Londoner

Sheet masks seem to be all over the place right now.  Naturally, I needed to investigate.  I’ve never tried sheet masks before and frankly the concept frightened me a little!  I accept that sounds odd, but having something extra on my face for 15 odd minutes...what if the product drips on my clothes, or my skin starts reacting and I can’t see?!  The horror!

How I Conceal & Brighten Dark Under-Eye Bags



How to conceal & brighten under-eye circles ft NARS, Clinique - Aspiring Londoner


As I grow older, dark under-eye circles are becoming a persistent issue. Even if I go to bed just an hour late, you can be sure the next morning I will have sizeable bags under my eyes. It's quite frightening really. Other than ensuring I I get at least 8 hours sleep, which unfortunately is hard to achieve in the days of internet; I have whittled my makeup products down to two things that can effectively fake it for me!
