Review: B. 16hr Wear complete coverage Foundation

| On
Friday, February 28, 2014

I have been looking for a good quality high street foundation now for ages. Just after Christmas i bought the wake me up foundation from Rimmel, i love it loads but it is very very illuminating. So, i went on the hunt for a foundation with more of a matte finish. 

After scoping boots and superdrug, i came across the brand B. I know its fairly new but i  never really bothered checking it out, until i found it was on offer. I soon began swatching like a mad woman through all their foundations.

This complete coverage one for me, seemed to tick all of the boxes. I always find it quite difficult to find a full coverage foundation under £10.00 so was surprised at this find. Its not to thick like a lot of full coverage foundations which makes a nice change. 

The fluidity of it makes it easily blend-able, and doesn't dry too quickly which means you can get a good amount of blending time. The whole range does have a nice array of colour choices so i felt this shade was a good match to my skin.

I would say that is build-able from a medium to full coverage and doesn't look cakey.
Although it isn't completely matte, it does have a really nice fresh finish. Without being over shimmery like the wake me up foundation.

Overall it is a lovely foundation and i would recommend to anyone with any skin type.

You can buy it HERE in superdrug for £9.99

Have you tried anything from this brand? what did you think of it?

Review: Soap and glory Body Butter

Thursday, February 27, 2014

As you guys know, Soap and glory is my go to brand. I use there product pretty much everyday. Recently ive fell in love with the sugar crush line, this body butter in particular. Their body butter are so luxurious and creamy. I love how they sink into your skin so quickly and the sweet citrus smell ligures for hours. 

Its realy thick and silky and doesnt leave tour skin feeling greasy or sticky which is always a plus. I use it after showering with the sugar crush body wash and scrub to maintain the gorge scent. 

Normally i would use it before bed and in the morning my skin feels incredibly soft and hydrated. Becuase its so thick and intense i tend to only use a few tines a week as it may be a bit too heavy to use everyday. However, its a great treat for the day when you need a pick me up. 

I also like to use it on my arms and legs before i night out or when im wearing a dress or skirt. 

In general, its a great product that would be a perfect addition to your spring/summer routine. I woulddefiantly  reccomend this to anyone and everyone, especially if you are prone to dry skin.

Have you tried the sugar crush line? What was your fave product?

NYC Expert Last Nail Polish
In Carrie'd Away

Nude nails are a trend for me, that will never go out of fashion. Its almost like your nails, but better. 
For spring this year, i wanted to find a nude that's light and with a pink/peachy undertone. 

This one from NYC is my idea of 'nude nail' heaven. Its ideal for everyday and is a great addition to pull together any outfit.

As far as the formula goes, The expert last range does exactly what it says. It claims to last for up to 10 days, but for me it lasts on my nails for roughly a week. Once dried it leaves a slight glossy finish. However, i always like to follow with a top coat.

The only bad thing i would about this colour in particular is that it takes a good 3 coats in order to achieve an opaque colour.

I would definitely recommend this polish if you are looking for a nude polish for spring.

You can purchase it from superdrug here for £2.49

Dry Shampoo

This has to be one of the oldest lazy day tricks in the beauty bible. On those days were your hair needs a bit of a refresh but you cant really be bothered to wash it, Simply spritz a dry shampoo through the roots of your hair and brush it through. You can also use it to boost the volume of your do.

This one from Umberto Gianini is my current fave. It doesn't leave a grey residue like some others and smells amazing. You can buy it at boots here for £6.00.

Ted Baker notebook

This is the cutest little notebook i think i have ever bought! I write in it 24/7. I mainly use it to jot down blog ideas, but i also like writing down my fave recipes too.

Real techniques buffing brush

I use this brush literally every single day to apply my foundation. I love te finish it gives and it blends amazingly. Its a diverse brush too so you could also use it for powders e.t.c.

Body shop room spray in pomegranate & raspberry

I usually spritz this all around my room when i first get up in the morning. It has a citrus undertone and makes me feel wide awake and energized.

Rimmel matte finish top coat

I have been experimenting with my nails recently and rediscovered this lovely product. I love that it almost instantly can transform your nail polish and give it a whole new look.

Collection cream puff in fairy cake

I really love these lip creams. Because of the matte finish they can sometimes be quite drying, so i like to pair it with a clear gloss or balm.

Nivea lip butter in caramel cream

Omg... I wear this lip balm all day, everyday. It smell like the most amazing sweets you have ever come across and feels so lovely and creamy. I love it so much, i have one for my bag, one in my make up collection and one by my bed!

Soap & Glory body wash in sugar crush

This body wash is my all time fave for the mornings. I'm more of a bath in the evening kind of person, however i do sometimes like to have a quick shower first thing in the morning. This is defiantly the perfect body wash for that.

Changing The World With Handbags

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

I recently came across this incredible company who makes handbags with a difference. 
With each bag that they sell, a portion of the sales goes towards multiple charities who promote the awareness of  different medical issues such as cancer, diabetes and depression. 

By cleverly matching each issue with a colour, they are able to combine the charities with the bags and make it recognizable to the customers.

The bags themselves are an amazing quality and all made from vegan leather and durable fabrics. All the designs are beautifully crafted with super cute details. With a wide range of styles and designs, Anyone will find there perfect bag. And of course, all the bags are finished of with the color matching ribbon.

 Please go check out there website here and find out more about the amazing work these guys do. I hope you find them just as interesting and inspiring as i do.
