Hello Flawless Oxygen Foundation by Benefit Cosmetics ♥

| On :
Evening ladies & gents! Surely your christmas list is nearly full! Well if you can squeeze another on, grab your pen and write this lovely christmas idea down!

Need an everyday liquid foundation, then in that case you might want to check this foundation out by Benefit Cosmetics. With me, I am working very early hours in the morning and have extremely long days, I need something that stays on well but very natural and easy to apply in the mornings, so I can have more beauty sleep! Hello Flawless Oxygen foundation is probably one of my newest favourites for a natural everyday sheer foundations.

I don’t like wearing a full coverage foundation every day, I like my skin to breathe throughout the week with either a tinted moisturiser or sheer foundation, or nothing at all and then when it comes to special occasions or weekends then the extra coverage won’t harm my skin and I will feel a bit different when I go out and look my best! Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation, has been out for a while and I think I am a tad late trying this and reviewing about it but ay, every thought counts right? I am really pleased that is a fragrance-free product as well because it doesn’t irritate my skin at all which is a bonus for me.

So this foundation is actually suitable for all skin types from the driest of skins to the oiliest and even you ladies that are in-between! I think this is why this foundation is one of the popular foundations on the market because they have made it suitable to everyone. Even though it claims that it is suitable for everyone, with my dry skin thought I would test it out. I can say that there was no flakiness, dryness, patchiness or cracks which I am impressed with. I don’t powder with this foundation just because I prefer the gorgeous dewy and radiant finish it gives, but if you’re an oilier skin then maybe a dab of powder just to stop any shine peeking through.

A primer with this Benefit foundation I would say is a must to make it look more flawless. I love the fact it is lightweight, gives a natural finish and doesn’t enhance any of my dry areas! I do have very sensitive skin and this has not caused any problems yay!

More about the foundation! It is a sheer coverage but definitely able to build it up to a medium coverage. The coverage is quite impressive, it does conceal a few imperfections with luminosity. You are in for a treat with this lightweight and very comfortable product. At the moment I have been on the hunt for a natural more sheer foundation and I have found the one! It gave me a beautiful radiant glow to my skin, with looking like you’re wearing makeup. I love that it is a very hydrating texture and formula because it is a massive deal for me.

When applied the foundation does blend quite easily, my skin feels like it can breathe and that is the best feeling with any foundation. Even though it looks quite thick, the texture is beautifully creamy!

The packaging is really cute, attractive and also I love the simplicity of the bottle. I love that it is transparent because I know how much I have exactly! Not like I need to worry about it because you only need a tiny bit as it spreads a long way. Definitely a new sheer foundation of mine that I would repurchase! Buy it now and get matched up to your shade, they also do samples for you to try out first! Go online or to your nearest Benefit counter. Delicious oxygen for you skin!

YSL "Shocking" Mascara ♥

| On :
Many of us may have some busy schedules, meeting with friends all the time, going travelling or anything! When applying mascara it can take some time to get that perfect length and volume, even thickness! Surely we don’t want to be sitting there for ten minutes applying mascara when you need to be somewhere quick! Thought I would share my thoughts on my latest and newest favourite mascara “YSL Shocking” mascara!

We all need a good mascara right? We all don’t have time to sit there putting layers after layers on, or even waiting for the glue to dry on your fakies! “YSL Shocking” is a beautiful mascara, I have heard so many good things about this mascara so thought I would hop onto the boat and try it out for myself. Certainly have to say, I’m impressed.

YSL has luxurious, gorgeous gold packaging that I can’t resist to buy. The packaging does look and feel expensive also sophisticated, which it is! I know it isn’t real gold, but it does look amazingly pretty in your makeup storage or bag. YSL’s gold design does stand out from other brands out there I believe. I also believe that the mascara is the most used, most bought product out there in the makeup industry so most importantly you need a mascara that is going to last you a long time and give you the look you want in one product, so you can save your pennies.

Like I mentioned in my second paragraph, I am impressed! The things I read and were told about this mascara are certainly true. The formula is thick and is an extremely black shade which I do indeed love. One of the blackest mascaras I have come across, even when it is applied it is BLACK! The brush and formula do work together well has they both make the lashes look longer, thicker, volumizes and adds a little curl to your lashes.

Ladies you may be wondering “Yes it might give you longer lashes, and a more volumizing look but does it even last all day?” Definitely does, I have been up early hours of the morning and it has stayed the same throughout the day, without needing to add more or fix it! This mascara is definitely a money saver.

This is the type of mascara that you can add extra minutes to your beauty sleep, because this mascara is quick drying, easy to apply and instantly lifts the lashes and lengthens them. Two layers and your lashes will look naturally long and voluminous within seconds. It enhances any natural, daytime and night time makeup look.

The brush seems to be designed so you don’t get that annoying black smudge that you get on the top of the lids when applying mascara, which I always seem to get with other mascaras! Also when you’re finished applying other mascaras can mark the eyelids with black dots, which can be quite annoying. Just simply apply it like you would do, in your own way and it is a miracle what this pot of gold can do!

This is a really “shocking” product and would recommend this to everyone, spread the word and purchase this either online or at your nearest YSL counter.

Lushie Girl: Lush Cosmetics Christmas Haul ♥

| On :
A slightly different post to what I usually would post but it is a must because it is about the best handmade cosmetics store, LUSH. I am a massive LUSHIE. Thought I would do my Lush haul that I purchased over the weekend, make it a little bit more exciting for you lovely readers! LUSH cosmetics is a store that wherever I go, if I walk past one, I am guaranteed to walk in and I know I won’t come out empty handed.

Let’s start off with the Christmas goodies, after all they are the most important products this time of year. I bought a selection of Christmas goodies, I am familiar with some from last year but they have brought out some more limited edition ones, which is really exciting! I will begin with “Snow Fairy Shower Gel” which is one of their best selling products throughout Christmas time. A bottle of candy and hint of fairy dust, such a gorgeous scent that just stays on your skin for hours, if you love candy, candyfloss and anything sweet then this is the ONE for you! I understand why this is a number1# product, lathers up extremely well with only a pea sized amount.

Snow Fairy has a sister bath bar this year, which is their newly launched snow fairy, star shaped product “Magic Wand”. This smells like you could eat it, but don’t because it belongs in your bath to make you smell nice and be squeaky clean. A reusable bubble bath bar, that gives you lots of candy bubbles! Smells just like “Snow Fairy”, if you prefer a bath then grab this. All you do is run your bath, put the bubble bar in your bath and give it a little swirl and like magic your bath is full of pink candy bubbles!

Next we have “Candy Mountain” which is a pink and white cone. Please I recommend you get your hands on this and put it in your bath as soon as you can. Love even scents of vanilla and creamy candy, perfect blend that when it’s crumbled into your bath it adds a lovely girly, sweet scent!

More Christmas goodies, on the way to you! “Lush Pud”, I would say this is the most traditional scented product out of the range. I love the pastel colours throughout the bath bomb and the holly leave in the centre. The smell is probably the most relaxing because of the soothing lavender fragrance. If you’re unsure which one this is, in the pictures it is the big round ball of colours!

Last but not least at all out of the Christmas range is the giant gold present called “Golden Wonder” It was that big, it was a bit of a struggle to fit it into the paper bag! I have had this since it has come out, Golden Wonder is definitely a surprise when you pop it into your bath. There is a few layers and each layer has something gold, magical and different to offer.

Onto the skincare, I bought a few products just because I fancied to try some girl essentials! With this being skin care I will definitely do individual posts for more in depth review about them. Start with “Rub Rub Rub”, been eyeing this product for a while but always walked away but this time I did it, I went ahead and purchased it and I really can’t wait to try this, because of my eczema I really need a fragrance free and sensitive scrub.

“Popcorn Lip Scrub”, I already have three at home and gone and bought my fourth! Winter essential most definitely. Ladies do you suffer from dry, flaky or even chapped lips? The quality is amazing and worth every penny. They make my lips silky afterwards and the fact you can just lick it off after you have had a good scrub is the best bit!

This wind, the rain, the cold, everything about winter can make our skin dry! We never realise that our cuticles do need some love as well as our body. “Lemony Flutter”, this is such an intense fragrance but so subtle when applied onto the cuticles, I couldn’t believe it. Super thick texture and full of nutrients for them dry bits!

That’s my LUSH haul done and hope I have made you want to purchase some of these or gave you some ideas for Christmas presents! I would recommend to go into store that is near you because the ladies and gents that work there are super helpful and will help you with anything.
