The Beauty Of Eight Hour Cream.


Ever just want a ‘do it all’ product when it comes to skin care? I know this time last year, that was me. With all the changing seasons and the oiliness, dryness and dehydration that comes with it, i searched and searched for something that would work wonders in aiding the process. I finally found it!

The Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is that exact product. I tend to get dry lips, the occasional burn from my curlers and chapped dry hands (especially through winter). The Eight Hour Cream provides for all by moisturising those stubborn dry areas, healing any burns or scars and hydrating those chapped lips. Thats but to name only a few of its wonders.

The Eight Hour Cream is also known for its pungent scent, which of course could be a downside to this product, however you can buy the unscented, i much prefer the original as, to be honest, the unscented smells worse! I also really like to use this product on my cuticles at night, message through my brows to hydrate and help them grow, (it does work a little i find) and apply to my knees and elbows on occasion. Though, there any many other wonders of this product i must say, if you are on like me. Then this is something you should maybe invest in, ask for as a birthday/Christmas Present or just save for. It last a life time!

The Magic Of Makeup Revolution

Hi Guys

Todays post is focusing on one of my new favourite drugstore brands Makeup Revolution.

I want to share with you my incredible pigment findings. Pigments are one of my favourite type of product to use, because not only is the pigment usually incredible, it goes further and lasts longer too (in the tub). So who doesn’t want them? well there are a few downsides of course, pigments are loose unless they’re pressed and that can evidently cause fall down, especially ones with larger glitter particles and finding matte pigments are usually a lot more difficult. 

Makeup Revolution have a huge range of pigments (eye dust) from shimmery black to bright exuberant copper shades to subtle wearable hues. I have to say, the quality and pigmentation are just to die for. (not literally of course) but if you heard they were £1 each, you’d drop your bags are run right?

Well guess what folks… they ARE just £1! The consistency and pigmentation on these little pigments are incredible, one of my favourite things from the range. If you spray a little MAC Fix Plus or even add some eye drops or solution. These little pigments pack a punch! Plus i find the lasting power of these are really good. Again i would suggest an eye primer/concealer like with all eye products but i don’t find myself needing to go back into the crease to re-blend or add more.

Here are a couple swatches of some of the shades. As you can see, even the black is interesting. Antic is a beautiful shimmer coloured flecks will work perfectly for night outs, evening dos, or (my personal favourite) Christmas Parties!

Vitality

This pretty silver/grey shade is perfect again for those evening looks, but with this pigment, it works great as a slight highlight in the inner tear duct when doing either a strong or subtle eye look.

Cautious is a really pretty rose gold, taupe shade which is one of my ultimate favourites in the collection! I love how pigmented it is, how pretty it looks on the eyes and this works great in summer!

Virtuous Is a taupe/purple plum shade which i love because coming into fall time these are going to be some of the colours i reach for. I will complement any plum/maroon makeup looks and give your eye that little pop.

Now as you all may know, i am a huge fan of highlighters and dewy, radiant skin. Well these highlighters at just £3 each are some of my favourites this summer. On swatch these look a little crazy intense, am i right? well in actual fact, when applied with a soft fluffy brush like the Real Techniques – Setting Brush or Blush Brush it looks flawless and gives that perfect glowy appearance! 

The Gold Highlighter – Golden Lights

The Pink Highlighter – Pink Lights

Their palettes are a tricky one, the colours are fabulous and for the price you can’t really complain, but if I’m being really technical the pigmentation isn’t the best. Not with these palettes anyway. One thing i’ve noticed is that when applied on their own, the pigmentation isn’t amazing, but when sprayed with a bit of fix plus or solution spray they are drastically more intense, like with any eyeshadow. The nice thing about these pallets though is that If you are just learning to blend shadows and always feel that you apply way too much, too fast? these are the ones for you, they really help you build the colour and work in that blending, it just takes a little longer.

Okay guys, i know this one was a bit longer, but i wanted to be thorough. So i hope you enjoyed it and that it was at all helpful.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick – Pink Quartz

IMG_3303

Hey Guys!

So some of you (if not all) may have seen and heard about the new Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz everywhere. Its been shown in blog posts, youtube videos, magazine and of course on famous celebrities. If you don’t already know, i am obsessed with highlighters, dewy skin, glowing radiance and all that good stuff, but guess what, I’ve never owned a Bobbi Shimmer Brick before?! Yes i know… total disaster right?

I finally picked my first one up, and i decided to try the Pink Quartz because it looked so pretty and natural, a blush/highlighter i could wear not only in spring/summer but that i could wear all year round. as this has enough colour to put a pop of champagne pink onto the cheeks it would work well over the top of any autumn/winter blushes you might like to wear too.

I love this! Its totally owned up to my expectations! Pop this on with a fluffy blush brush like the Real Techniques Blush Brush and you have a radiant complexion. Another great handy thing about this is that it has a really good size mirror, perfect for us girls on the go!

On days where i want a ‘simple’ makeup day. I fill in my brows, apply concealer under my eyes and this all over my face; cheeks, cheekbones, bridge of the nose and a bit on the chin and cupids bow. Then my friends i am good to go!
