Lets Talk: Acids

Acids are widely talked about recently and are O K A Y for your skin. I’m going to try my best for you all to at the end of this hopefully understand acids and maybe try one out for yourself without being scared of the word acid and the thought of it going on your face. They all have different purposes for each skin type, texture, look, and overall condition of how your skin looks and could be your answer for a concern you have.

If you think about it, we use acidic products every day and even eat them. Do you think twice about eating an orange? That’s Citric Acid, a great source of Vitamin C.

They come in different strengths, formulations, prices and textures and I will be honest, all are trial and error as with all skincare items. I will try and break it down as simply as I can from what I have learned over time while working with these products and what ones could suit you best. With any skincare it’s about maintaining a routine to see a difference.

I have studied makeup and skincare to a professional level, however please do your own further research and only use this as a guideline as the majority of my research has been done through my own studies while gently touching upon these acids in my studies in class.

L’Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mascara Violet Review!

I was a bit skeptical about trying a new mascara but I did need a new every day mascara, as personally my usual mascara is a little too full volume for every day wear. I decided to try the new L’oreal Miss Manga Mascara in Violet for a change, and I got it at the introductory price of £5.99.

  

                     “Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara creates bold volume 

                         with L’Oreal Paris’ first 360° flexible cone shaped brush that amplifies upper lashes and reveals lower lashes.”

 

With it’s interesting brush shape and advertisement I grabbed one to try.

 

Price: £5.99 (£8.99 RRP)

Time trialed: 4 weeks.

YSL Yves Saint Laurent, Gloss Volupte Lip Gloss Review!

The new YSL Gloss Volupte lip gloss line is one word; Stunning. The packaging, feel, sent and lasting colour is amazing.

I picked up the shade 209 Smoking at work while waiting for a friend to purchase a lip gloss herself, this was an impulse buy but it is one that certainly is worth the money.

The idea with 3 of the lip glosses are to use them as topcoats to change the look of your lips or lipstick, the others in the collection you can use as stand alone lip glosses with gold shimmers or use them to enhance your lipsticks.

There are 23 shades in the collection.

 

 

Price: RRP £21.

 

Time Trailed: 2 days, one while out in the night and throughout the following day.

POP Beauty Peak Performance Review!

After reading some disappointing reviews online about this mascara I wanted to see for myself if it was a good idea.

The applicator definitely got me to want to purchase this and i liked the fact you had to work it manually through the lashes. So when i visited the pixi storeI purchased  this myself!

 

Time trial: 2 Months.

 

Claims: A revolution in mascara application!
