Too Faced Foundation

IMG_8360

For a while now iv been dying to try the Too Faced Born This Way foundation. Iv been thinking about getting this product for ages, so once my old foundation ran out I just had to get it!

First thoughts ~ I absolutely love the finish of the foundation on my skin. I find it hard to get the right colour for my skin tone they always end up being orange or way to light, but this is a perfect match. This really is one of the best foundations iv used, I have a lot of redness and an uneven skin tone and this covers perfectly! I apply my foundation with a beauty blender and you always get the best coverage. I would say this foundation is perfect for Dry to combo skin, it adds a nice subtle radiance without it looking to oily!

Where to Buy ~ I brought mine at  Debenhams for £29 or you can also buy it on the Too faced website.

I hope you enjoyed this quick post about another product I love! If you have any questions about this product feel free to message me!

Mini Beauty Gift Guide

 

 

Hi everyone, as Black Friday is now officially over, the Christmas shopping season has offically arrived. So, I thought it was perfect timing for a mini beauty gift guide. All the gift sets I have featured are no more than £30!

*FAVOURITE* Too Faced French Kisses Melted (Liquified lipstick set) – £18 – Online at TooFaced.com

  • Four clutch sized Melted lipsticks including 2 new Melted Metal Shades.

I have loved all of Toofaced’s makeup, everything I have tried has been perfect for my skin type, it’s not that budget friendly but all of their products are well worth the money and long-wearing.


 

*FAVOURITE* Beauty Blogger Darlings – Darlings makeup collection – £15.00 – online at Toofaced.com

  • Deluxe Better Than Sex Mascara
  • Deluxe Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer

*FAVOURITE* Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks  – Limited Edition Collection – £26.oo – online at Toofaced.com 

 

 

  • 3 Melted Lipstick shades and 3 blush shades

This has to be my favourite gift set! It’s perfect for the girl who wants to add a bit more colour to her everyday routine or the girl who has everything! This is definitely one I would love to receive!

Most of the products in this gift set are minis but this is perfect for someone wanting to try a different brand! Out of this set, I have tried the POREfssional, I received a free sample of this a while ago and I have to say, I really love it!

  • SOAP & GLORY SUGAR CRUSH ~ Body Scrub
  • SOAP & GLORY SUGAR CRUSH ~ Body Buttercream

I love Soap & Glory products, I have really sensitive skin and I found it really hard to find a product that didn’t react badly to my skin but Soap & Glory always leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth!


 

 

These are only a small handful of gift sets that are out there so just look around, Boots really is one of the best stores if you have a lot of family and friends to buy for as all of their Christmas stock is 3 for 2 mix and match!!

Quick Tip

If you’re buying for a lot of family or friends then buy a few gift sets and split them up to create little goodie bags. All you will need are ribbons, tags and little festive bags!

I really hope this post has helped you and given you a little idea about what’s in the stores and online this Christmas. Do you have any gift ideas? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below or send me an email through my contact form!

“November” My Little Box

This months MLB theme is My Little Sweet Box and like always I was really excited to see what was inside and I have to say I’m pretty disappointed!

I love cooking and baking and I really thought this box was going to be amazing but sadly it wasn’t. I can’t speak for everyone but in my box I had no ribbon or beauty bag, those little touches really make a difference to me!

Having said that, I will be using all of the products I received and the tin that everything came in. I have loved receiving My Little Box but I feel the quality of the products doesn’t compete with other subscription boxes I have received recently!

What was inside

Sadly there was no illustration card this month another detail which makes a big difference!

  • My Little Word Magazine
  • Treats tin ~ £7.50
  • Chefs Apron ~ £11
  • Jar Stickers ~ £3

Beauty Products

  • Bliss Fabulous foaming Face Wash ~ £17.50 per 197ml
  • So Elixir Bois Sensuel, Fragrance by Yues Rocher, £50
  • My Little Beauty, sweet hand cream Mains Veloutees

Soap & Glory 2-in-1 Brown Sculpting Crayon & Setting Gel

Happy Monday, this is a quick post about a beauty product I brought recently. It’s the Soap & Glory 2-in-1 Brow Sculpting Crayon & Setting Gel, I have always had a problem with finding a brow pencil that matches the brow colour and this is a perfect match! I love the angled crayon as it makes it so much easier to use and the setting gel is perfect as it dosen’t leave your brows feeling crispy. My only complaint is that it’s not very pigmented so just bare that in mind. But out of all the pencils I have tried this is defiantly the best for blonds!!
