My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Gentle Makeup Remover That Packs a Punch

Wednesday, 14 January 2015

I love putting on makeup every day- but man do I hate taking it off. The wonderful people at Amie have sent me this incredible makeup remover to try- and let me tell you, it makes taking off eye makeup even the stubborn stuff incredibly easy. It does hurt when you get it in your eye though- which I did.. ouch

One of the reasons I hate trying to take my makeup off and usually end up using a baby wipe is because of the oily greasy feeling most removers leave behind- even the "Oil free" ones. What Amie has done is somehow magically create a remover that doesn't have this effect- actually removes the makeup (without scrubbing) and leaves the skin feeling soft and clean.

This stuff is gentle but powerful, and nothing is more satisfying when removing your makeup then having almost a perfect impression left on the cotton round and this product does just that. I drop a few drops on to a cotton round and place it on my eye and let it sit for a couple seconds before dragging it off and bam there is my eyeshadow and liner and mascara- in one go.

Very nice! I'm waiting for mine to arrive so that I can review it.

That stinks that it got in your eye. Great that it removed everything easily though.

I usually use coconut oil to remove my makeup- especially my eye makeup. It removes EVERYTHING but it has that greasy feeling that you seem to not like lol.. Anyway, just thought I'd share <3
