H&M clothes & accessories haul

Hi lovelies,

I did a bit of shopping from H& M, so I thought I’d show you what I got along with my Get Ready with me video.

But first, what did I get?

Jewelry

I got this lovely chunky pearl earring. I think they look really nice paired with a nice spring knit or blouse. They can transform your outfit into something really glam.

Layered (-ing) necklaces

So, shell fish-y hangy stuff are all over the place. I got this necklace that is da embodiment of summer. It will look great with a V neck. You can wear it on it’s own or with other pieces.

I also got a necklace with a small circle hanging on it. I think that looks really chic.

Clothes

A wide leg pair of smart trousers. I have bought more classic looking trousers from H&M before and they are great value for money. Have washed my winter pair many times and they are still a great fit. This pair is more lightweight. The only thing I do not love about them is that they are quite high waisted.

Snake Print shirt

I ❀ animal print. Most of the things I have are leopard print. That is why I bought my first snake print shirt. Ideal for going out. What do you think?

Light (knit) blouses

At 8.99 I got three. A white, a pink and a black blouse. I made the mistake of buying the pink one in XLarge and it is quite big. I bought the others in Large. They are nice and soft, a bit baggy, the sleeves do not drown you and I 😍 them. Great basics for Spring 🌹🌷🌹

I also got this pretty hair tie which is very on trend at the moment. I really like this and it does make my hair look a bit more put together.

Now time for the Tube…

YouTube

My YouTube video is me showing you my work outfit. I wear the pink blouse, another H&M wide leg trouser, the necklace and makeup… On my face. And since I am talking about makeup, my look is a very easy everyday makeup look.

Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to follow my bog.

Till next time….

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.

Chatting about makeup and being colourblind

Yesterday was colour blind awaress day and I tried to do that. Raise awareness. The main focus was on students who are colour blind, but I did post a video about my whole makeup application process and what I, as an achromat, find difficult.

Struggling

Foundation/concealer

I cannot pick a shade for my skin. Whatever I use is based on what a makeup artist or sales assistant has chosen for me. I am OK with that. They are helpful. I can see if the foundation/ concealer is full or medium coverage, but I cannot see if it goes orange, if it is a cool or warm undertone.

Eye shadows

I cannot see the colours. I mean, I can see them, but not really “see” them the way you do. That is why I have ranted over and over about cosmetics companies and how they name their products. I need a clear colour name. Dark brown, light shimmery pink. What I do not need is a name like showery rainbow or unicorn breathe. That says nothing to me. It does not help me buy an eye shadow and in all fairness, it drives me away from purchasing a product with a random name. Now, as far as pigmentation is concerned, the lighter the shade, the harder it is for me to see it on my eyelid.

Lippies

Same as above. I have no idea what I am buying

But

I can see if it looks nice on me, or at least I think I can.

If you want to hear more about this, do watch my video, where I also talk about cb students and teachers.

Thanks for stopping by.
