May Likes and Dislikes

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!

 

 

January Favourites

 

So the first month of the year is almost out.. yippee!

 

 

Which brings me to this months favourites:

My K by Myleene Klass- if your not aware if the many new trends of SS17′, then your missing out. Along with Embroidery, Badges, and now ‘unisex’ clothing. Yes monochrome, for babies is IN.

Solstice Highlighting Palette by Sleek- probably for me the most affordable and popular highlighting palette around, if you are unable to stretch to say Anastacia Beverley Hills.

Fibre One Bars- Honestly, these are so tasty! If your on a diet, and just craving a chocolatey hit, then try one of these. They are 90 calories, and come in 3 flavours. Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Salted Caramel Squares and Lemon Drizzle Bars.

Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Power by MAC- if you are like me and by lunchtime your a little bit shiny, or you find your makeup doesn’t look as great as it did when you first put it on that morning, then look no further to MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder. I find this makes your makeup stay all day, and you can use is sparingly if needed. It doesn’t make your face go all cakey like a lot of powders do either. Use it with a damp sponge or beauty blender to “bake”, or with a fine brush.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation- my holy grail foundation! It has taken a long time to find a foundation that matches my skin perfectly, and stays on ALL DAY long, it does not wear away, slide or look patchy or cakey either.
