NEW : CLARINS AQUATIC TREASURES SUMMER MAKE UP COLLECTION





 Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base* // Summer Bronzing Compact* // Iridescent Eye Shadow *// 

I'm really looking forward to summer and creating some amazing beauty looks using these latest releases from Clarins. 

The Radiance boosting complexion base is perfect for creating a luminous base. It's a moisturiser which hydrates the skin It also has qualities that makes it suitable for sensitive skin and it reduced redness. There's also anti pollution complex to protect the skin. As well as the instant light radiance boosting base i've been using Clarins Summer Bronzing compact for a natural glow. I apply the complexion base all over my face for that glow and to moisturise the skin I then use the bronzing compact to contour. I apply the bronzer to my cheekbones forehead and along the jawbone. The bronzer is really easy to apply and easy to build up. The compact is a really good size, it's really big and there's a mirror inside which makes it really handy.

The eyeshadow is so perfect, its such a gorgeous shade! It's a really nice pink shimmery eyeshadow. It applies so easily and the pigmentation is so good!  This is a perfect addition to my make up bag, it's perfect for travelling as its such a perfect shade and I can just pop it in my make up bag. 

I'm going to do a beauty tutorial soon and will hopefully use some of these products, theres a swatch of the eyeshadow below, 







REVIEW: NARS SHEER GLOW





Nars is one of my all time favourite  brands, I love every single Nars product i've ever tried. I own a vast selection of Nars products from blushers to lipsticks. 

I have wanted to try Sheer Glow for such a long time after reading review after review about it. I have the shade Santa Fe which is a medium shade. I tend to wear a warmer shade than my actual skin tone so this is perfect. 

After shaking the bottle I pour a little product onto the back of my hand and use a buffing brush to apply, you only need  a small amount of product as a little goes a long way. The foundation applies really easily and sinks in really fast into the skin.

Sheer Glow leaves my skin looking clear, the coverage is really good. My skin looks awake and refreshed!  I love the dewy finish of Sheer Glow on my skin. I have quite oily to combination skin and I think Sheer Glow works really well on my skin type. I would say Sheer Glow is more for normal to dry skin as it has added hydrating qualities. I tend to get an oily t-zone by the end of the day however i'm yet to find a foundation that combats my oily skin so I don't mind this.

I really do love Sheer Glow! It's my new day to day foundation, I find it so easy to apply making it perfect for those mornings when you really shouldn't have snoozed the alarm again . It's such a lovely natural looking foundation with amazing coverage and leaves my skin glowing and hydrated.

I will repurchase Sheer Glow, it's my new favourite foundation!  



UPDATE: WHAT A YEAR?





I had a little look on my timehop the other day and it was so strange, I've had my job for a whole year, I work in retail but it got me thinking about how much has changed in a year and also how much i've done in a year!

Since I started my job i've been on 3 holidays one of those being to Florida, i've been to Wales, London, Weston, I've graduated!

It's been such an amazing year! My biggest accomplishment was graduating, I can't believe I got my 2:1 all the hard work paid off ! I really want to go on and get my teaching degree but right now i'm happy just working full time and trying to experience as many things as I can.

We got to go to America which was amazing and totally worth all the stress. We booked it with not much time to save money but it was amazing! We had the most amazing time, I loved Universal and all the shopping!!

We went to London for a blog event and had such a great day! We went on the London Eye and got to be tourists. This time last year we went to Wales and spent the weekend in a cottage and visited Aberyswyth which was so good!

We spent another Christmas and New Year together, birthdays and Valentines day.
We actually spent my 22nd birthday in Gran Canaria which was perfect, we're hoping to go away for my 23rd and we will be in Dublin for Clints 27th birthday next week.

I'm so excited for whats going to happen next, we are looking at booking a holiday for my birthday and then I think we will start to think about finding somewhere to live together. I thought i'd just share a little update with you guys, hope you enjoyed todays post as it's a little different.

REVIEW: LEE STAFFORD BLEACH BLONDES




 LEE STAFFORD BLEACH BLONDES RANGE - BOOTS - FROM £6.49*

As i've gotten older my natural hair colour is now more of a dark blonde, so I dye it because I prefer being a lighter blonde. My hair tends to look soo good when I get it coloured because at the salon they always use a toner in my hair to get rid of those yellow brassy tones. I kept seeing blondes rave on about Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes so I was so excited to try it out!

I've been using a combination of the Bleach Blondes shampoo and conditioner and the Everyday Blondes shampoo. The Bleach Blondes Shampoo is a really dark purple colour, the purple neutralises the yellow tones in blonde hair which gets rid of those brassy tones.

I've found when using the Bleach Blondes shampoo 1- 2 times a week and using the Everyday blondes shampoo for the rest of the week my hair is more ashy and less yellow. My hair still feels really clean and soft when I use the shampoo and conditioner. The conditioner is a thick creamy texture and leaves the hair feeling soft and tangle free.

I have to say i'm so impressed with the difference to my hair colour since I started using the Bleach Blondes. I think it leaves my hair really nice and clean aswell as managing those brassy tones. It also leaves my hair manageable and easy to style. Right now Lee Stafford products are on 3 for £15 at Boots!

REVIEW: YSL PALETTE FROM DIRECT COSMETICS




 VERY YSL PALETTE- £29.99* - DIRECT COSMETICS

This cute little travel size palette is available now at Direct Cosmetics, inside there are 4 eye shadows, 2 lip colours and 1 blusher. It's such a handy palette because everything you need is inside.

The eyeshadow's enable you to create so many different looks, and you could easily create the perfect smokey eye using these shades. 

The pinks and purples in this palette make it a very spring/ summer palette so it's perfect and as I mentioned it would be perfect if your going on holiday or traveling.

The pigments of the shadows are really good, they are all quite shimmery. I have swatched the eyeshadows below however this is without a primer, with a primer you get a much better colour payoff.

The lip colours are so versatile and can create different looks. The lighter shade is perfect for everyday and if you use the pinks and purples you can get a light, natural look. The darker pink is less natural but still perfect for both day and night, its a very versatile shade.

The blusher is perfect and would work on all skin types / colourings. I would personally wear a more pink shade but this is a nice light natural pink which just adds a slight bit of colour to my cheeks.

Overall this is a great little palette perfect if your travelling or packing light. I love the packaging, the pink leather is gorgeous and the palette resembles a phone case which is a cute touch.

REVIEW: ANASTASIA DIPBROW POMADE






ANASTASIA DIPBROW POMADE - SEPHORA OR CULT BEAUTY 

I recently got back from America, it's gone so fast! Whilst I was there I did some serious shopping most of which was in Sephora, we don't have a Sephora here in the UK so there was some must have products that I wanted to pick up one of which was Anastasia dipbrow pomade. I now know you can also get on Cult Beauty and they deliver to the UK which is great. Sephora do ship to the UK but I think theres a minimum spend.

Dipbrow Pomade is one of those blogger must haves that everyone seems to rave about but then you read some mehh reviews about. I had heard mixed reviews so I wasn't sure about buying it however I went rather CRAZY whilst in the US and just bought everything on my list haha. 

Dipbrow Pomade is a brow product, It's kind of like a wax. You apply it to your brows for that filled in effect. I use the Ecotools brush to apply it, the brush is from one of the Starter sets, I'm pretty sure its an angled liner brush however its perfect for brow products. You literally need a tidy bit of product, a little goes a long way! I tend to start mid brow because you don't want loads of product at the start of your brow, I then pull the product along the brow to create my arch and then fill in the start of the brow so its not really filled in as much.

It's seriously so so easy to use! I have been using Anastasia Brow Wiz aswell, so I start with Brow Wiz to draw the lines I want to stay within, this creates that neat line under the brow and then use dipbrow to fill. 

I have to say I love both products and I will repurchase! I know there's similar products that are easier to get hold of but now i've found Cult Beauty stock them I know I will be buying both products again.
