W7 Porefection! Review

I kindly received a box of W7 goodies to try and throughout the month I’ll be writing how I got on with the products and how they slotted into my usual routine. The one I was most concerned about switching in my routine was the primer. I’m a big fan of my Iman Time Control primer, Nyx Angel Veil and Nyx Primer spray and it is hard for me to change my mind when I’m happy with something in my routine. Whenever I hear the word “Pore” in a primer, I do cringe. Silicone based primers rarely sit on my skin and I find that any primer that tries to be a dupe of Benefit’s Porefessional slides off my skin. However I’m always up for trying new things so I gave it a go.

Guerlain Météorites Blossom Écrin Sourcils Eyebrow Kit Review + Swatches!

I cannot live without eyebrow products. Even if I pop to the shop I have to do my eyebrows above anything else. Looking back at old college pictures of my eyebrows has made me cautious about how they look at all times! So when it comes to eyebrow products I like to mix and match and see what is out there.

So being a big Guerlain fan, I bought their Ecrin Scourcils Eyebrow Kit in a heartbeat.
It contains 4 shades, 3 brow and 1 highlight, with a small thin angled brush and brow brush. It also includes a large mirror, which is fantastic because it is not a small dainty mirror where you have to struggle to move your hand and still see.

Time trialed: 1 Month.
Price: £31.50

LGFB + Benefit Blogger event, with Gimmie Brow and Big Easy!

Last week I decided to go along to the Benefit Blogger event which was also an event to raise money for the Look Good Feel Better charity, which deals with people who are going through cancer treatments and suffering with the visible side effects. It teaches them how to apply cosmetics, skincare, anything that can make them look good and feel better.

Their main focus was the brows and their newest brow product, Gimmie Brow, which is a micro fiber gel product which thickens the brows appearance. It was also a sneak peak session to see their newest product, Big Easy, which is described as being bigger than a BB.

Benefit Lollitint review + Swatches!

When I saw this product on some American blogger’s sites I knew as soon as it would hit the UK I’d need it, so I bought it straight away on launch day in Boots, which is conveniently placed opposite my counter so I did not have to venture far to get it! Plus I’m an absolute sucker for purple things, so this was a must!

Lollitint is a pink orchid tint for lips and cheeks, can be applied using fingers or brush, under or over foundation for a sweet tint. Pantone’s colour of the year is Radiant Orchid, which Pantone describes as  “Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination.” Which in my opinion describes this tint!

 

Price: £24.50.

Time Trialed: 2 weeks in store before hand, 1 week owning the product, three weeks in total. Continue reading “Benefit Lollitint review + Swatches!”
