Summer skin product favourites! (Oily skin)

Hey Guys!!!

Sorry we’ve been M.I.A for a little while…

Hope you are all good and enjoying the hot weather! πŸ™‚

Here is my recent summer favourites…..

image

image

NΒ°7 Shimmering lip/eye SPF stick

image

image

This NΒ°7 eye and lip shimmer stick is so creamy and long lasting! It also contains an SPF/UVB 30 (most  lightweight SPF lip products contain just a 15) and gives the lips and/or eyelids a flattering sweep of delicate shimmery bronze.

Β£7.50 (3g)  – Boots

Clinique – Super city block (oil-free)

image

image

image

The Clinique city block is an excellent all rounder SPF40 face primer for full sun protection. It comes out like a beigy cream but when blended into the face/neck goes clear which then leaves your skin a none greasy summer glowy canvas πŸ™‚

Β£18 (40ml)

Liz Earle skin repair moisturiser in ‘Light’

image

Like most Liz Earle products this moisturiser in ‘Light’ has been a god send for my oil to combination skin! As I am prone to spots I needed an everyday face moisturiser that was light enough to not disrupt my skin (Spots!) Yet rich enough to hydrate my skin with all the botanical and goodness that Liz Earle packs into it’s skin products such as Borage, Avacado and Echinacea . Leaves my skin velvety, matte and soft πŸ™‚

Β£20.25 (50ml)

Liz Earle sheer tint primer

image

image

The Liz Earle sheer skin tint (I use shade ‘Bare 01’) is a wonderful tinted under makeup primer which gives a light-sheer coverage while controlling excess facial oil. The formula has a light protection of SPF 15, I often wear this alone or if you are conscious of looking greasy then wear a dusting of face powder on top for a more matte look..:)

Makeup Revolution lipsticks – review!

Hi Dolls!

How’s you’re weekend?

Today I show you 4 of the makeup revolution lipsticks I got in my recent haul post πŸ™‚

I wanted to try out some fun colours similar to the Lime crime or OCC lip colours ( without the price tag! ) so when I saw these while browsing the Superdrug site I thought ‘why not’.

Felony

image

Ok first of all I haven’t done no lip swatches as I’m not feeling great today so i’m writing this in bed (I started a juice detox yesterday).

‘Felony’ is one of those lipsticks I would never wear in public although if you’re a similar styled person to ‘Queen of blending’ from YouTube or ‘Amy’ from sugarpill cosmetics then you’ll love this…however it’s not greatly pigmented but if you use a lip primer and take your time you can get the style and colour you want, not bad for Β£1!

Depraved

image

This is my favourite of the 4! Really pigmented and bright, kinda reminds me of the colour Kylie Jenner wears! πŸ™‚

Crime

image

Crime is a really vivid bright fuchsia pink & is just as pigmented as depraved. It’s a really beautiful colour and would look great on any skin tone πŸ™‚

Scandalous Immoral

image

Ok, think Katy Perry….yep this is a scary colour to wear on everyday except Halloween but who cares! You can wear what you want πŸ™‚ again same with felony it’s not as pigmented as the other two so use a lip primer and you’ll get that Katy perry look πŸ˜‰

Liz Earle – Nail polish review

Hi Dolls!

Today I bring you a review of Liz Earle’s nail polish in 02 ‘Quicksand’.

image

image

I bought this gorgeous shade of soft sand/beige back in February at their beautiful Leeds store.

As many of you know both myself and my sister Louise LOVE anything Liz Earle! I mainly love their Skincare products and my sister the cosmetics but we just love everything! πŸ˜€

A few years ago Liz Earle launched their cosmetic line and I didn’t try any of their nail polish at first but while in their store in February I couldn’t resist especially at all the rave reviews I read and the price, only Β£8.50 for a premium good quality nail polish πŸ™‚

image

They have 12 gorgeous colours and I plan to get more during the summer but ‘Quicksand’ is such a lovely neutral shade that I wanted to try it first:)

The polish itself painted on beautifully with a nice, long brush and non-drip formula. To get the most out of the colour I used a topcoat (OPI). I had about 6 days wear before I noticed any chipping which I think is pretty good as I normally get around 2-3 days from my OPI or Barry M polishes so I was very impressed πŸ™‚

Too faced sweetheart blusher dupe!!!

Hi Dolls!

I recently found a fantastic dupe for the Toofaced sweetheart blusher in shade ‘Peach beach’ .

image

‘I heart makeup’ are a brand sold in the UK (Superdrug!) And as soon as I saw these cute little heart shaped boxes I knew they were Toofaced inspired dupes πŸ™‚

image

image

image

image

I got the shade ‘Peachy pink kisses’ and loved it more or less straight away! I’ve only ever swatches the toofaced blusher in a department store but I can say the photos don’t do their similarities justice!

image

At almost Β£20 difference in price I also bought a few more in different colours for beauty swaps…I couldn’t resist! πŸ˜‰ Apparently they had just been restocked when I bought them as they are always sold out….lucky me! πŸ™‚

What do you guys think?
