Snake Oil Series: Stretch Mark Creams
I've decided to start a little series of posts about the things cosmetics can't do for us. I think it's important to be aware of the limitations of beauty products, because the more people are aware of these things, the more we can collectively say a massiv...

Makeup: Two New Favourite Mascaras
Possibly due to the fact I have pretty crap eyelashes (the hairs overlap, they don't hold a curl and they're not very long - thanks, genetics! ), I've never found a mascara I properly love. They're Real was fairly nice, and I quite liked the Maybelline Ille...
