No7 BB Cream


Normally, I'm the type of person who doesn't like leaving the house without makeup on even though if im being honest i dont look that dfferent without it ! I've heard a lot about BB creams, that they have been popular abroad for years, and that they are good for your skin. So, I decided to give this one a try; with my £5 off No7 voucher, it cost me £7.95 - very reasonable in my opinion  and No7's BB Cream for Normal/Oily Skin sounded like just what I needed. On the website it says:

''Take off those winter layers and reveal your outer beauty this spring with new No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream. Its unique 3-in-1 formula evens and enhances skin tone and disguises imperfections, while the nutrient-enriched formula helps to banish blemishes.
And with the added protective power of SPF 15 and 5 * UVA technology to help skin stay youthful, BB is the only way to wear this season’s must-have essential - perfectly-pared back, beautiful skin.
For Normal / Oily Skin.'' - Boots Website


The foundation applies really easily and is VERY LIGHT i can hardly tell its on !! i have been using this daily and my Clinique for seeing my boyfriend or going out.

No7 BB cream is  great product and perfect for summer i will definitely be continuing this purchase !!

Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara






Maybelline states - Now, False Lash Glam gets wings! Flare lashes up, out & over the top, instantly, for the winged-eye look. The secret: Our 1st spoon-flare brush & curler formula for the latest false lash effect in a tube: The winged-eye look with Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara !



PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
• Patented Spoon Curler Brush fans out lashes from corner-to-corner, while our Pro-Keratin formula instantly builds volume without clumping.
• Unique flexible wand lifts and separates lashes to provide the look of 300% more visible, lashes.
• Contact lens safe and ophthalmologist-tested.
• Washable, also available in waterproof formula.
To be completely honest, I have no idea what the difference between the "flared" version and regular version are. I looked on the Maybelline website and the product description for both were the same.


I think -  
The packaging is simple typical Maybelline style it doesn't particularly excite me nor does it offend me I'm just like oh there's a purple tube that must be my mascara in my bag. So I suppose a plus that its easily seen in your bag ?

The actual formula of the mascara is quite good too. It does lengthen my lashes and it's easy to build volume with continuous strokes of the brush. If you are applying more than one coat it does need to be done pretty much straight away as it dries Quickly !!


Sorry for the blurriness i cant afford a camera so use my phone !! But this is after 2 coats in both photos.



                    Overall i would definitely repurchase this !!!

                                                     8/10

Clinique Super balanced Foundation.




So i have been using this for just over a year now and i love it !!  I first came across this foundation in my mums make-up bag and used to steal it when she wasn't looking ! However after getting a job i decided to buy my own. it retails at £21 and lasts months so for value in money i wouldn't say that bad.

The first impression was 'wow'. It has great coverage and doesn't feel oily on the skin, yet allows for multiple layers (on the chin and under the eyes in my case). It has a bit of 'glow' on the pore areas- the inner cheeks, chin and forehead- which tends to fade off as soon as the foundation has dried . It doesn't look oily at all and leaves my skin oil free and covered all day !!


I would definitely recommend these if you have combination skin and like a natural finish to your foundation. You can always get a sample to try before you buy and see what you think! Or go to a Clinique counter they are great at customer service and you don't feel pressured to buy at all !!


I have the cream chaos one but also nude ! and both match perfectly !!!

Overall 9/10

Clinique haul


So a few weeks ago my boyfriend and I went to the Trafford Centre and I managed to stock up on my Clinique addiction and they had a freebie gift on if you bought any 2 Clinique products,  1 being Skin care you received the spring gift bag.

So what did I get.....




Clinique super balanced make up in Cream Chaos. - Clinique's great equaliser for combination skin. Provides moisture and absorbs oil where needed. Minimises appearance of fine lines. Helps protect skin from environmental damage. Apply to face and throat with fingers. Can be worn in the immediate eye area. For seamless look, dampen ends of fingers and blend into hair and jawline. FULL REVIEW COMING SOON !!



Clarifying lotion  - Sweeps away dead surface skin cells on very oily skin. Skin appears smoother, softer, with more light-reflecting qualities. Allows more effective moisturisation. Makeup goes on more smoothly and stays on longer. Provides a cool, refreshing feeling. Use twice a day after Clinique's Facial Soap. Dampen cotton ball, sweep in one direction over face and throat, avoiding eye and lip area. I cannot praise this product enough i use it twice daily and it really helps keep my skin clear !!




My Freebie,  dramatically different moisturiser , rinse of cleanse,  all about eyes, Black High-Impact Mascara, Moisture surge and 4 lipstick swatches.

Tweezerman the GOD of Tweezers.


I first bought these Tweezerman tweezers about 2/3 years ago after growing tired of cheaper ones not working as well as they should. These were quite pricey at £12  and these have increased in price over the years but I had heard nothing but good things about them and I wasn't disappointed. You can buy them from Amazon for only £9.99 BARGAIN !

                                         


Tweezerman tweezers always get the hair you want and don't snap it off like some other tweezers. They also manage to grab the tiny hairs which would normally get away. ( The ones that make it look like you have little black dots on your eyebrow)I really can't rate these tweezers enough !!! And think everyone should have them !!!

Overall, 


Pros


  • Angled edge to grasp hair
  • Tips are hand filed
  • Grabs very short hairs
Cons
  • A Tweezerman addiction might lead to buying them in multiple colours
  • Can be pricey
10/10

ELF Mineral Booster in Sheer



I purchased the mineral booster in sheer with my elf haul last week. I chose to purchase the large option at 17.8g and at only £5 plus i had 40% off at the time :)


sooooo...


The mineral boosters packaging comes in a white box like all other products in e.l.f.'s mineral range and the product itself is  in a transparent plastic jar with a black twist-off lid.  Plain and simple packaging like most of E.L.F's products.





Here's what e.l.f. have to say .......



Achieve the ultimate, translucent "photo finishing touch" to your makeup, our Mineral Booster melts into your skin, infusing it with key vitamins A, B and E to promote healthier skin that’s noticeably silkier and smoother. Completely sheer and ideal for all skin tones, Mineral Booster gently absorbs oil and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and pores for a beautiful even finish. Wear alone or buff over our Mineral Concealer and Foundation to lend extra staying power and to achieve a professional and stunning porcelain matte look that will last all day.




It has become one of my staple products that  use every day now as it helps keep my make-up on all day and helps finish off my make up!  My make-up now lasts all day and doesn't budge an inch !! No make-up melting during the day or oiliness ruining my make-up or foundation streaking so I was definitely impressed

You can use this product alone if you wanted to, as It stays on all day and I could easily say that my skin doesn't feel oily so it's definitely a big plus as i have an oily t-zone!

Or over Foundation to set liquid foundation it gives me a nice matte finish and it also keeps it in place for longer!

I always apply the Mineral Booster with my e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush as it blends it nicely onto the skin, but any large brush would be great :)


                                                                                               Quite a lot dabbed on !!



                                                                                             Blended with my brush


 You get your Mineral Booster from the elf cosmetics website here. for £5
