Superdrug & Boots haul, first time i got to use my new Superdrug beauty card!
|In boots I pick up three different foundations from Revlon, they were on |
3 for 2 :) I will be doing a review soon on Revlon's photoready compact foundation.
|I love's superdrugs own range of skincare. Here is the cleanser, eye make up remover and moisturiser.|
All 99p each :) I might do a review on this range soon!
Has any one else tried any of the products above?
I decided to try this foundation as I'm a fan of Revlon's Photoready liquid foundation. Skip to the bottom of this post for a quick review :)
What they say:
"-Perfected, poreless airbrushed skin in any light
-Liquefying screen turns cream to liquid, then dries to a soft powder finish
-Photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to help erase every flaw
-Complete, yet virtually undetectable coverage.
-Soft luminous finish."
The liquefying screen it comes with makes the whole process a little messy, however you can remove it! It has a creamy texture and blends really easily into the skin.
When I first applied it I was disappointed with the coverage. It was more light than full, and didn't cover my blemishes or under eye dark circles.
However, when I photographed myself wearing the foundation it came up so much nicer in the photos! So I suppose being a photoready foundation, It does do it's job really well and gives the skin a flawless finish. Without flash shows the results i was seeing, with flash it erased my flaws by reflecting light.
- soft matte finish
- photographs well with flash
- easy to apply
- comes with mirror
- doesn't give full coverage
- liquefying screen makes it difficult to apply
Overall this is a good foundation if your having photographs taken. I'll probably use it on top of my colourstay foundation as a powder to set it.
Has anyone else tried this?

What do you think of Topshop's s/s 11 make up trend?

If you would like to know how to achieve feathered eyeliner just check out the video below :)

|Can you tell which mascara cost 16.50 and which one cost 1.99?|
The main difference between mascara's is their brush. You can buy fat ones, thin ones, little ones, curved ones, rotating ones, soft ones & thick ones.
Some also claim to have special formulas, for example.....
Bourjois Volume clubbing -
"waterproof formula is
enriched with vinyl for an intense look
that won’t budge all evening."
Bourjois Elastic Mascara -
"Enriched with hevea from the rubber tree"
Rimmel Volume Flash x10 -
"Next generation ‘Quick-Bond’ lash inflating formula with unique gel texture"
I think the main thing to look for in a mascara is the type of brush it has, Mascara's with hard bristles are going to separate the lashes. Curved brushes will help to curl eyelashes. Think about what you want you eyelashes to look like, do you want them to look thicker? curlier? longer?
benefit badgal lash is the most expensive mascara I own, However my favourite one is natural collections lash length, second on the right.
Do you have any tips and tricks when it comes to buying mascara?

Fashion & Beauty Blogger, youtuber, t-shirt designer - is there anything Rach can't do? I caught up with the 21 year old student from Scotland to discuss her love for Primark, becoming a writer and the inspiration behind her own range of t-shirts...
What inspired you to start designing and selling t-shirts?
After seeing a lot of slogan tees around in the shops i wanted to make one for myself that had a slogan or picture that i really wanted rather than some of the slightly naff ones that you can find. Then i just decided to sell them to my readers through my blog and youtube. I had no idea they were going to be so popular!
http://www.ahashakeheartbreaker.com Vicky's blog is another vintage inspired blog. Her outfits are always absolutely perfect right down to her stacked necklaces. The blog is also original in that it has a more 'serious' post every sunday tackling a specific subject topic. I love that Vicky show cases her writing abilities among pictures of what she's wearing! Vicky is also a frequent updater which is always god when you're as blog obessed as me!
own a Racheyem t-shirt
Big thank you to Rach for taking part!
If you are interested in being interviewed just leave a comment below & i will get back to you :)
