October faves:Beauty & Random

Hi everyone!!

Time for October Faves. I posted a YouTube video where I talk a lot about what I like about these products, but I also thought I’d share a blog post, cause well, I haven’t written one in forever.

So, what did I love in October?

Beauty

The lips

No7 Lippie
There is a problem here. I cannot tell you the name of the colour because I am colourblind and cannot read black on reddish backgrounds. I am including a photo though and you do see it in my video. I love this lippie because it is quite long lasting and moisturising. It is not patchy, quite affordable (10 pounds) and autumnal. The colour I have is a reddish brown.

Mua lip lacquers
They have been around forever. They are very affordable (3 quid!). The shades I have are not patchy. My faves are Poise and Tranquility which are both nude tones (video with a full review is coming next on my channel-shameless plug).

The eyes

I have two stylos I like. Kiko 06 (which is a shimery bronze/ brown I think) and Elf no budge stylo in Moca. That is a rich brown. They are both long lasting and very easy to apply. If you are partially- sighted like me and only use eye stylos, you defo need to check these out cause they are very affordable.

The perfume

Clinique aromatics in white. If you like powdery scents, you should check this out. Some of my other Faves are Chanel Mademoiselle, Escada Notes and Jo Malone blush suede (trying to give you a sense of the perfumes of what I love).

The Blush

I am currently using using Rimmel maxi Blush in wild card. It is a red-y blush. If you go in heavy handed, you are……. But if you tap off excess and blend it a bit, it is nice.
Capture

The foundation

There has been a lot of talk about the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define foundation. I personally really like it. It is medium coverage. The application is very easy, it is quite long lasting, easy to spread. It does not show my lines or sink into them. I do moisturise well though underneath it. It is what I am wearing in my video (and pic. Actually, I am wearing a lot of these products in my video).

Random faves

Oh! Do I have a selection of random goodies for you. Swizzel lollies. I am addicted and I should not be!!!!! So yummy…. and bad. Another random? I bought a re usable shopping bag from Primark (did a massive haul from Primark if you wanna check it out). It has polka dots and the lots. So nice and practical (and one quid!).

Thanks for stopping by.

Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser Review

Hi lovelies,

I may not be amazing at putting on makeup or applying my creams, but I am VERY meticulous when it comes taking off makeup.

In my 42 years on da planet, I think I have never slept with makeup on.

I always take it off. My cleansing may not be very thorough when it is 4 a.m. after a night out, but it does exist and I think that is one of the reasons my skin is in such a good condition.

Today I will talk about one of my favourite cleansing products.

Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser

What it doesn’t do

It does not take off layers of heavy duty makeup.

What it does

It is great for a final cleanse. The cleanse that comes after all the other cleanses. The one you do when you have used your oils to get the annoying waterproof mascara off, the non budge eye shadow stick.

It is great for the first morning wash. The one you do in the morning when you wake up and want your skin to feel fresh and soft

Texture

It is a lightweight foam. It is not a thick foam. It is actually like putting a cloud on your face (not that I know what a cloud would feel like).

Scent

It smells like chamomile. It does not linger on your face though.

Packaging

It comes in a plastic pump bottle with a pump and a clear cap. It is 150 ml

According to the Sephora website,

This product is vegan, non-toxic, cruelty-free, dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, safe for sensitive skin, and free of all synthetic chemicals, gluten, GMOs, and fillers

Ingredients Guru

Some of the ingredients in it are:

Water, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside, Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, Caprylyl Glycol,Fragrance, Coco-Betaine, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate,Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Phytate, Matricaria Flower Extract, Sage Leaf Extract.

Me, me, me

My skin is dry and sensitive. It does not make my skin pull. It does not sting and it does not make my skin red. I have repurchased it many times. I str4ongly recommend you check it out.

I hope you liked this post. If you enjoyed what you read, do subscribe to my blog. We can also connect on social media.

6 Makeup Travel Essentials: drugstore edition

Hi lovelies,

Weekend ahead and time to write a blog post. In today’s post I talk to you about my travel essentials πŸšπŸš‰πŸš’πŸš€ I made two videos which I posted recently on my channel (it would be great if you checked them out and of course I will link them later on). I have affordable essentials and more high end makeup essentials.

Today’s post will be about the affordable travel essentials. I mention only 6 (that was the number I gave myself!

Let’s start with affordable faves.
Rimmel matte Liquid Lippies
I love these liquid lippies because they are matte, long lasting and do not make my lips feel dry. Hang on though, if you put too much lippie on, it will crack and look yucky!

L’oreal Lash Paradise Extatic
This mascara makes your lashes look really long and stand out-ish but it does dry up quickly. I also think it is pricey for the time it lasts. I do think it is a good mascara though and the one I am currently using and took with me.

Revlon Cream Eye Shadow

If you are looking for a pigmented cream eyeshadow, you should check this one out. In the video you will see the gold colour I have.

Beauty Sponges
I forgot to take my beauty sponge with me when I was traveling, so I went and bought a new one. I got it from H&M. It is great value for money and does the job.
E.l.f liquid eye shadow
I love the E.l.f. liquid eye shadows. They are very shiny and pigmented, long lasting and really easy to apply.
E.l.f eye shadow sticks (metallic)
I love these sticks (I have a video with swatches and the lots coming up, so check out my channel).

I took a lot of them with me when I went to Greece. They are easy to apply, pigmented and affordable.

My high end travel essentials

Till next time….
