After experiencing severe acne in my 20s I was prescribed a course of acne medication, Roaccutane. The reported side effects, such as depression and extremely dry skin, meant it wasn't a decision I took lightly, but it did significantly clear up my skin.

While I didn't experience many symptoms whilst taking the drug, I didn't expect to be left with so many red pigmentation marks and pitted scars once the acne was gone – or just how much they would knock my confidence, like the acne itself.

To read all about the skincare routine that helped heal my scars (with before and after images!) Head to Refinery29 UK.

Eyeliner will never go out of style, you can quote me on that. Though it may change shape and style, it’s always a staple on the catwalks of Fashion Week. And, one quick scroll of the Instagram hashtag #eyeliner sees scores of selfies dedicated to the perfect flick.

While things have come on leaps and bounds since Cleopatra’s early experimentations in 50 BC, it still takes a little skill and the right equipment. While I love wearing eyeliner, I’m not one of those powerful sorcerers who can do a perfect line in one swipe, I require silence, stillness and a standout tool.

I tasked myself to try all the best products out there and see if you really do get what you pay for and if I could spend less with great results.I tested an eyeliner a day, in different styles to see how the products lasted and if I ended the day with a faded grey smudge. Read the results on The Debrief and prepare to be suprised...
