Kat Von D Lock It Foundation Review

While at the Kat Von D Blogger Event I was given the opportunity to try a Lock It Foundation. This is something I had been dying to try for years as I had heard friends and bloggers online rave about the coverage and lasting power of the foundation.

The shade range available ranged from very pale to deep tones so there is definitely an option for almost everyone. If your shade is slightly off tone, you can mix the Lock It Concealers in to get your perfect shade.

Time trialled; 7 months

Shade chosen; Light Neutral 45

Cruelty free; Yes

Price; £27

Spring 2017 Trends And Predictions

With Spring literally just arriving, I’m eager to see what the trends will be for this season. I’m praying and hoping we ditch the matte lip, foundation and heavy brows and move on from the perfected Kylie Jenner-esque look.

Here are my predictions for the start to a fresher makeup look for Spring 2017.

Ultraflesh Rose Gold Blusher Review

While shopping in Mcarthur Glen I managed to pick up an Ultraflesh blusher. I’ve heard good things about their products in the past so I was excited to be finally able to try a product of theirs.
I picked up a rose gold blusher, which is out of my comfort zone and a colour I want to try and wear. So basically this was a kill two birds with one stone moment for me! The colour didn’t look too bright and just had enough of a shimmering glow to it that didn’t look too much for me to handle.

I paid £4.99 for this, but it does retail for around $30.

Worst Products I have bought – Part 1

As I’m moving house in a couple of weeks I’m starting to de-clutter my life starting with my biggest collection, my makeup drawers and bags. So I thought while I’m throwing things out I’d document the products I’ve barely touched and why I’ve never used them before giving them the chop.

These opinions and views are my own, and based on how they work on my own skin. My opinions in this blog post do not reflect other products in the lines of these companies, and were purchased with my own money.

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!”

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.
