REVIEW- Impulse Body Mists

Good morning lovelies, I thought I would share these with you.

Am unsure if many have seen these about, but I was instantly fascinated with these.

I’ve loved and used the Impulse Body Sprays for years, so these took my attention straight away.

I bought three bottles (they have I believe 5 in the range), and smell amazing.

I have (from left to right)…

  • Purple Petals + Smoky Sky
  • Burnt Marshmallow + Leather Jacket
  • Whipped Cream + Microchip

They also have..

  • Tropical + Espresso
  • White Lace + Muddy Grass

I have to say my favourite currently is Burnt Marshmallow + Leather Jacket

All deliver a fine mist when sprayed on. Ideal for refreshing during the day or when your off out for the evening.

They are packaged really well too and ideal for keeping in your car for on the go or to be popped in your handbag!

Details for around £7 each.

Evening all, I thought I would share my favourites and my not- so favourites from this current month.

LIKES

Having seen the Original Source online a few times (I think they also have a Pineapple and Orange scent too), these are pretty good on oomph and zany coolness! Think these currently retail for about £2.

Also a similar product, this is my 3rd one! The Imperial Leather “Unicorn” Foamburst. I’m a sucker for packaging, and with everything being Unicorns still I had to try this. Smells quite subtly of Marshmallows and isn’t sickly sweet. Again probably around the £3 retail mark.

Initially looking for a matte skincare primer, but of all the ones I was looking for nothing took my fancy. Turned around and saw the Nivea Daily Essentials Moisture Boost + Matte and I was a little sceptical, due to the fact it said it left a matte look to your skin but also because it was a moisturiser and could also be used as a primer. Boy this does the job. Honestly refreshingly nice on the face and even good to apply foundation on top off too. Just enough tack to stick! Hidden jem. This was a bargain at £2.

Last but not least the Charles Worthington Salon at Home Protective Detangle Mist. I don’t use conditioner in my hair, as it’s very fine and prone to becoming oily very quickly, but also I needed some help when I have washed my hair to keep it straight and tangle free. Saw this and it was a risk purchase. It smells fresh, isn’t heavy on the spray, it is just like a mist and doesn’t weight down my hair. Bordering more than I would want to spend £5- £6.

DISLIKES

Not sure where to start.

All of these products from this months use have all been awful and a waste of money.

Will just bullet point these to save on waffling!

  • Rimmel Fix & Perfect Makeup Primer- terrible packaging, awful product, makeup didn’t stay on more than maybe 4 hours at most.
  • OGX Brazilian Keratin Smooth Shampoo- apart from the nice pleasant chocolate scent this has, it clearly doesn’t work well with my thin, long hair, and leaves it feeling worse than when I went in to shower!
  • Revolution Concealer NEW- I had high hopes of these new concealers due to the high amount of promotion everywhere. The shade scales are pretty good and the colour matched me well. I was c1, but that’s where it ended. After a few hours of honest wear, you could clearly see this slide and move on my face. I would say AVOID!
  • Rimmel Match Perfect and Lasting Finish Foundation- both oxidise badly, terrible shade assumptions, and both do not last the stated times for wear. I love Rimmel makeup and use the mascaras constantly over other high street brands. Just foundations lately don’t seem to live up to the expectations.

Review: Sleek Makeup Distorted Dreams Highlighting Palette

Sleek’s new highlighting palette is amazing.

Look!

 

 

Distorted Dreams

Distorted Dreams Highlighting Palette

 

 

 

This palette has 5 unique standout colours, including 2 powder highlighters which are similar to a gold and a pink, and 3 cream based highlighters which are also in pink (pale), purple (more iridescent in the natural light), and light green/ yellow.

All go on to the skin incredibly well and can be used either boldly on the cheekbones, brow bone and cupids bow, or sparingly on the shoulders or décolletage.

The choice is yours!

 

 

My favourite lip products (NYX)

I swear, that literally this last year or so NYX Professional Makeup have exploded immensely with their makeup, even more so with their lip products.

I have never really been a fan of lip products, as the shape of my mouth isn’t really what I call ‘attractive’, so have always steered clear of anything dramatic or bright.

Then I saw these…

l-r NYX Butter Gloss in Madeleine, Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome and Abu Dhabi

 

 

They both go on really well, the colour pigment of the lip cream is amazing, and honestly lasts a fair few hours wear.

I picked mine up from my local Boots stores, but they sell online too and do not cost a lot, these were £5.50 and £6.00 each.

Have a great evening

As Frank Sinatra sang so famously… “That’s Life”

I do wonder sometimes, at what point in time will I ever feel complete or at least happy. It doesn’t seem complicated, aren’t we all entitled to be happy? But I for one thought that being happy came at a cost. To who’s expense exactly?

People say, “life is what you make it”, what’s that supposed to mean? I never once invisioned my life to be like it is right now.

Ok, I didn’t do particularly well at school with my education, but I did go on to do college and I did night school for 2 years, but where did it get me?

Im laying in bed again procrastinating about my life now as a 29 (going on 30), mum of 3, and I think. Is THIS it? Is this what my life has become?

I do think I’m jealous of how other people live their lives, the amount of friends they have, their social status etc, I always think to myself, why dont I have that too…

There isn’t really an answer to that question, as I guess other people may be thinking the exact same thing as me.

I have a loving, trusting, caring partner who supports and understands me and three handsome sons, and I ‘probably’ couldn’t ask for more than that.

I guess ‘that’s life’ really, isn’t it?

In a room full of people. No one can hear you scream.

Demons.

Demons of depression is like being in a pool full of water and drowning even though you know how to swim. No one understands.

Everyone says “you look to nice today, with your hair and makeup on” blah blah blah, and all your want to do is scream at them and tell them that your blind at the fact that all I want to do is rip your head off and scream at you.

Ignorance ISN’T bliss.

This isn’t a phase…
