About

Monday, April 14, 2014

The Sunday Girl is a UK based beauty website that is updated frequently and offers in-depth, 
honest but neutral reviews (by neutral I mean that I am not affiliated with any brand) of beauty products of any nature -hair, cosmetics, skin care and nails basically you name it and I cover it!

Please note that The Sunday Girl is a reviewing and information based site - you will not find make-up looks, I only post swatches and my opinion on how the product/s perform. It has been on this format that I have built this blog and I have no immediate plans to change this. I apologise if this seems a little impersonal but let's face it sloppy application skills could easily sway your opinion of a product and vice versa.

I'm not here to sell anything and would not let a sample cloud my judgement,
samples are always marked and further information can be found within my disclaimer.

It is worth noting that products should be approached with an individualist view point
as what does or doesn't work for me may have the very opposite effect for you.
I do tend to mention in most posts what type of skin or colouring a product will work best for
but again make your own judgement, I am far from all knowing!

For reference -

  • I have oily to combination skin and seldom have any dry patches.
  • My hair is naturally wavy, normal in type with slight dry ends,extremely thick and long.
  • Skin tone - I have light/medium skin with a golden undertone, in Mac I wear NC35-ish
  • but I am partial to a coating of self tanner or two...faked not baked!
I test facial/skin care over a two week period but if I decide to continue with a product of this nature
I tend to do a follow up post around the three month mark.

Testing Periods

Lip products are wear tested over a three wear period.

Foundation/Concealer/Primers I will test over a full week using only that product.

Powder products (face/cheeks/eyes) are tested twice once with a primer and once without.

Shampoo/Conditioner - I have a seven wash rule before making any judgement.

Hair styling products - These will be used at least three times before I share my thoughts.

Skin Care - I will test the product for as long as it claims it needs to be used to see any benefits,
if it doesn't make any claims I trial it over a month.

Thank you!

  10. Wow! in just a year - that's amazing! i'm trying to make a success of my fitness blog - www.dashing-divas.com. If you have any tips I'd love to know. People think blogging is easy, but to make a success of it takes hard work. Have you joined the next blogger network? That's seems to be the big thing at the moment.

  12. My absolute favourite beauty blog! If ever I want to buy a product, I search here for a review first! :)

  13. I absolutely love your blog xx I am Scottish and proud too and dont show my face on my blog either - I would rather people buy a product because of the review I give it, I think I keep my face off my blog because Im not quite ready to share that part of me yet but I know that there are alot of glam looking bloggers out there who young girls will probably try to emulate and spend outwith their budget to try and get that bloggers look. Anyway I will get off my high horse ha ha xxx Love your blog and congrats on all your brilliant achievements xxx
