I let go summer as Autumn has now taken over from it but I will still wear my brighter lips and nails! Here are some of my favourites I have used for a month or longer.
I have worn the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream’Ivory 31′ continuously for 3 months until the last drop has been squeezed out if it! It has been a really good everyday coverage for the skin. The shade was excellent and was perfect for the summer. Not too heavy, no breakout, gave lovely luminosity to the skin, hydrated it and it has SPF15 as well. Perfect for me and a really nice CC Cream that I will re-purchase again. I will be upset if I can’t re-purchase it!
I wanted the body illuminator from the range but it was out of stock so I bought the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Face Illuminator. You can add this to our foundation or wear it on its own. I mixed it with my foundation and it gave lovely glow to the skin. Not heavy on the skin and it worked well on it. I like the packaging as well. Very impressed by this.
The Beauty Pie Superbrow Precision Pencil ‘Perfect Brown’ is my second. It is so good, perfect shade for me, stays all day long and easy to apply it. I love it! So cheap and cheerful but still very good quality.
H&M Infinity Impact Eye Colour ‘Baci Di Dama’ & ‘Amazing Greige’ were the first eyeshadows from H&M’s make up range I have bought. Packaging is nice to start of with. Baci Di Dama is a browny-golden shade. Nice texture, quite buttery and applies so nicely and easily blendable. ‘Amazing Greige’ is a grey-brown with shimmer in it. I wasn’t so impressed with this shade. Not so buttery and the shimmer falls too easily so nothing to blend! It worked better on a wet brush when applying, less fallout and you can see the glitter!
I have been practicing my cat eyeflick with Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner Black. I still need to practice more to get it right but this has helped! It is a nice pen with a fine pointed tip but the colour is a bit muted and not a deep deep black in my view. I found that it faded during the day but it was easy to work with.
I like to use many different mascaras so it was time try Revlon Volume+Length Magnified Mascara. I love the brush on this! It is a thick bristle brush, perfect for fitting to the eye as it’s not too big or too small. It really gives length, volume and thickness. It didn’t the clog the eyelashes either. One minor fault was that I did found that at the end of the day it did crumble. I don’t like it when mascaras do that!
L’Oreal Fine Flowers Cleansing Cream has been my first step when taking off my make-up. It has a lovely scent and has a nice creamy texture and doesn’t dry the skin out. I do like this a lot.
The famous Pixi Glow Tonic is a firm favourite with me when I use it in the evenings. We all know how good it is: It exfolitates, brightens, evens complexion and gives the skin a glowing and smoother texture.
The SenSpa One Minute Radiant Mask is a 3-1 action product. It is a cleanser, exfolitator and mask. It is not very expensive, 97% natural and it does work! I was amazed by the results when I first used it. My skin felt great the first time I used it.
I really do like Dr Organic products. Holland& Barrett stock their products so easy to find on the high street. I have used Dr.Organic Dead Sea Mineral Bio-Plasma Mud Mask and this one is a good one. It detoxifies,purifies and rejuvenates the skin with its muddiness! Using organic ingredients and free of of nasty ingredients, it is not animal tested and suitable for vegans. Great for the skin and the pocket!
Caudalie Beauty Elixir says it soothes and gives glowing complexion.It didn’t on me!.It did refresh the skin because of the peppermint but it hardly gave a glowing complexion to my skin. It also has the worst spray mechanism I have ever used and it really irritated me!
Time Bomb Hand to Hand Hand Cream has a light lavender scent and it moisturized the hands so nicely. I do love my hand cream and I do love to try different hand creams and this one really impressed.
