Beauty Bargain Finds; Becca at Fragrance Direct! Fine Pressed Powder, Compact Concealer, Stick Foundation and Luminous Skin Foundation

Becca-Fine-Pressed-Powder-Luminous-Make-Up-Revew.jpg

I was alerted to hoards of amazing Becca make up on Fragrance Direct (a discount beauty site) by Lipglossiping - I am a HUGE Becca fan although I do find the products are obviously quite pricey.  However, I used to buy the odd thing from Zuneta when there were sales going on.  I have wanted to try all their base products together for ages – especially the Luminous Skin Colour (a sheer tinted foundation) which retails […]

PurMinerals Product Review; Correcting Primer 4 in 1 Mineral Make up and More!

PurMinerals-Product-Review-Correcting-Primer-4-in-1-Mineral-Make-up-and-More.jpg

I have recently got into mineral make up again – I guess because my lifestyle has changed, and I do spend much more time indoors I don’t want to go over the top with make up, but want to feel a little bit more put together day to day with as little effort as possible, hence I want a natural alternative.   So first up then, I tried a selection of products from Pur Minerals. […]

A Lightbulb Moment? Shu Uemura The Lightbulb Fluid Foundation 554 Medium Sand Review!

Shu-Uemura-The-Lightbulb-Fluid-Foundation-Review.jpg

Getting Shu Uemura’s newest foundation offering, The Lightbulb Liquid Foundation, got me thinking about my previous experiences with Shu Uemura bases.  I have used their Nobara cream compact and stick foundation – both are quite heavy bases and I have never really tried any of their more liquid textures.  The Lightbulb foundation is like it sounds; a liquid base to make the skin look luminous and radiant.  The foundation is ideally to be used with […]

Sisley Phyto-Blanc Lightening Compact Foundation White Shell 03 Review

Sisley-Phyto-Blanc-Lightening-Compact-Foundation-White-Shell-03-Review-.jpg

I do rather have a soft spot for Sisley products, specifically their face powders.  I have a bronzer, a setting powder and blush.  All of them are very high quality and give a very natural finish that I find quite effortless – their products are not unnecessarily soft, they’re quite hard powders but because of this, there’s no danger of over applying and they seem to last for ever.  So…I was interested in trying this […]

New Base Alert! Jill Stuart Moist Silk Jelly Foundation, Secret Control Concealer and Sponge Review

Jill-Stuart-Moist-Silk-Jelly-Foundation-and-Secret-Control-Concealer-Review.jpg

Jill Stuart is such an irresistible brand for me, even though I can’t say that I have brilliant experiences with their products – I barely use any of the powder foundations i have from their brand (and they ain’t cheap!).  I just love the packaging and scent of the products though and well…I guess I just don’ give up that easily.  When I spotted their new foundation and concealer release, I stumped up £80 to […]

Foundation Love: DHC Q10 Base Make Up Moisture Care Liquid Foundation Review

DHC-Q10-Base-Make-Up-Moisture-Care-Liquid-Foundation-Review-.jpg

Another day, another foundation.  I am a foundation addict.  I guess the fact is our skin changes all the time so what we want in a foundation changes too.  At the moment I have a few fail proof favourites; RMK Creamy Foundation, MAC Face and Body, Estee Lauder Doublewear Light (I am still trying to find the perfect creamy compact foundation though!).  When I received this DHC Q10 Moisture Care Liquid Foundation, I was excited […]

MAC Face and Body Foundation Review; A Second Chance!

MAC-Face-and-Body-Foundation-.jpg

I have purchased MAC Face and Body foundation twice before in the ginormous 120ml squeeze bottles and felt lukewarm about the product twice.  What can I say? With everyone recommending this water based, long lasting all over foundation I felt that I had to love it or at least like it…but to be honest the watery-ness, the weird tacky sticky feeling and over the top shine left on the skin made me hate it.  I […]

Guest Review; Seventeen On The Spot Foundation!

Seventeen-On-The-Spot-Foundation.jpg

Today is a guest review from my cousin, Faye, who is 18 years old.  The product is Seventeen’s new foundation ‘On the Spot’ which is one of the first medicated make up bases available from the self selection market and is designed to improve the skin over a 4 week period. IN case you didn’t know, Seventeen is the rebranding of Boots 17 range (I didn’t actually realise this!) to a sleeker, more elegant look. […]
