 REVIEW: FLAWLESS DREAM NUDE FOUNDATION

blog2

Hey lovelies,

Hope you are all well!

Everyone has been going mad over this new foundation by Maybelline and I thought I would give it go. Over the years I have used high end foundations and drug store foundations, however, my ultimate favourite drug store brand for foundations is Maybelline and so when they came out with their new foundation I was very excited about it.

I was a little sceptical about trying this foundation as to me when I looked at the bottle the foundation seemed very watery, however, the next day after purchasing it I tried it out and was really amazed by the results. A little really does go a long way with this product it left my skin looking very natural but also did an amazing job at covering up my blemishes as well.

I would say that this foundation has a medium coverage but it can also be very build able.

The application of this product is a little different to normal foundations as you all know that normally foundations are package in a form where you can pump out the product, however, this foundation comes with a stick inside which is covered with the product. During the application of the foundation I just dabbed the stick with the product over my face and used a Real Techniques Buffing Brush* to work the product into my skin.

*any foundation brush can be used….you can even use your fingers.

The product has many different selections of colour shades to ensure that you have the perfect colour match to yourself.

I am a 40 Fawn Cannelle in this foundation and I it.

Do I recommend this product?

Yes, I do.

This product is very suitable for daily wear, light weight and looks very natural on the skin. However, I personally would not wear this foundation for a night out..as for a night out I do prefer to have full coverage and this foundation is a lot more suitable for daily wear.

Price

I bought this foundation at my local Boots for £5.99. I personally think that the pricing of this foundation is very suitable and is definitely worth your money.

Cons

I personally don’t think that this product has any cons, however, I did find the application of this product a little strange as I am normally use to foundations having the pump so that we can pump out the product….other than this the product is great!

Packaging

The packaging is really nice…the colour scheme is really girly and the bottle is a lovely size so it wouldn’t take up much space in your make up collection/bag.

MY TOP 5 LIP CARE PRODUCTS

January 28, 2015

PicMonkey Collage

Hey lovelies!

Seeing as the weather is cold in the U.K. it is important that we take care of our lips and keep them hydrated….it is always important to keep them hydrated, moisturised  and soft especially if you want to be able to apply your lipstick/lipgloss smoothly ensuring that they look presentable.

Within this post I just want to talk about my top 5 products which I use to keep my lips soft and hydrated.

1. LUSH Lip Scrub

download (1)

The LUSH lip scrub is A M A Z I N G…literally the best thing ever invented. If you find that your lips are a little dry then this lip scrub is perfect for you…it comes in many different flavours such as Popcorn, Bubblegum, Mint Julips and many more… it is also edible! Yum!  In order for it to work you will need to apply the product onto your lips like a lip balm  and move your lips together to ensure that the product ex foliates your lips. Once this is done you can either wipe it off or lick it off. The product leaves your lips  soft, moisturised and provides them with the vitamins in which they require.  I use the popcorn one and I love it!!

The price for the product is £5.50 and comes in one size only!

You can purchase it either on-line or in store.

Please see the link below to the product in Lush.

2. EOS Lip Balm

What is there not to love about EOS lip balms? I mean the packaging, flavour selection/colour and application is great and it keeps your lips soft and hydrated. The lip balm can be applied before lipstick/lipgloss application and can be used throughout the day to keep your lips hydrated. I love the application of this lip balm…all you have to do is unscrew the lip and move the ball over your lips and it’s done.

You can either purchase them in packs or individually as well.

I really like the Sweet Mint flavour  as it leaves your lips feeling fresh and little plumper which is great. However, there are many different flavours to pick from such  Strawberry Sorbet, Sweet Mint, Pomegranate and Raspberry, Blueberry and Acai, Lemon, Summer Fruit and Wildberry.

You can find the product anywhere…I normally pick mine up from Selfridges.

But I have left a  few links below for you to check out.

3.  Piz Buin Lip Balm

It is always important to protect our skin from the sun but it is also important not to forget our lips. I really like to use the Piz Buin Lip Balm as it consists of a SPF within it which is either a factor 20 or 30 in order to protect our lips from the sun and to keep them soft and hydrated. I tend to use the Piz Buin Lip Balm a lot more during the summer time and when I’m away as there is nothing more unattractive then sore burnt red lips…ouch!

The application is very basic just like a lipstick.

Please see the link below on where to purchase the lip balm.

4. NIVEA Lip Therapy

The classic lip care!

You can’t go wrong with the NIVEA Essential Care Lip Balm. I’ve been using this lip balm since Primary School…and it has always worked. I have always loved the NIVEA products I personally think that they do as they say perfectly. You can find this in many different flavours but I prefer the classic original one (as seen above).  The application is easy as it can be applied on like a lipstick and really helps cracked and dry lips.

This product has always helped me and it will forever be in my make-up bag.

And it’s cheap 😀

5. Vaseline

Vaseline…need I say more? It is a saviour for everything. The Vaseline line is hard to pick from you can either go for the classic or the lip care with different flavours. Vaseline helps to keep your lips hydrated and soft. You literally can just take the Vaseline Petroleum Jelly pot with you can it will work wonders for all your troubled areas….which is great if you are travelling.

We all love Vaseline don’t we?!

  REVIEW: GARNIER CLEANSING WATER

 JANUARY 23, 2015

garnier

Hey lovelies!

Hope you are all well.

I have a review for you all on the Garnier Cleansing Water, this product has changed my skin!! Before I was using the L’Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution and my skin did not agree with it,  my skin would break out, sting and be sore. Due to the bad results with the L’Oreal product I was nervous and hesitant to try out the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I finally took the risk and went for it….within 4 days I saw a change to my skin…my breakouts cleared up and the product and my skin agreed 😀 RESULT!

I use the cleansing water before I exfoliate/use a face wash on my face to remove my eye make-up, lip-sticks and skin make-up before carrying on with my skincare regime and in the mornings before I use my face wash and apply my toners & moisturiser. I really like the scent of the solution it’s fresh and light and not overpowering.

Do I recommend the product?

100%…it has worked wonders for me! Once I run out of the product I know I will be running back to Boots to grab a new bottle. The bottle is 400ml whereas the L’Oreal solution is only 200ml…so you get a lot more with Garnier and it is not as harsh to the skin. On the bottle it states that it is suitable for sensitive skin and they are correct. I do suffer with sensitive skin and this cleansing water has not affected me at all. Since I have bought this product I have been using it every morning and every night and it is definitely my best buy for this month so far!

Packaging

I really like the packaging on this product…love how the colours are very simple and the bottle itself it simple there’s not a lot going on which I like. This may sound a little silly but to me the bottle looks “Fresh” which I think identifies the product in a perfect way as the product does leave you feeling fresh.

Cons

No cons at all. I really can’t anything bad about this product the solution, packaging, scent and price is all great and I LOVE it.

FIGHT AWAY THE SPOTS

Hey lovelies!

We all know how horrible spots are especially when you want a flawless look…but no worries the Witch Blemish Stick is a life saviour!! Over the years I have experimented with many products so that I can find the perfect product to help me fight away the blemishes, however, nothing has worked for me as well as this product has.

photo 3

This product is amazing it fights away the spot and fights against the bacteria which has caused the spot. The application of the stick is very simple and easy, all you have to do is push the stick up and apply the product on the problem area as many times as possible to ensure that it fights it away!

It works for all skin types- oily and combination skin!

However, if you have sensitive skin I would recommend that you do a test patch before you apply the product to ensure that the product isn’t too harsh for your skin.

The price is very reasonable and worth the product.

You can find this product anywhere…I normally get mine from Tesco’s or Sainsbury’s.

It’s my life SAVIOUR!!

I have linked a few websites below on where you can find product- check them out!
