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!

Clarins Ombre Matte Shadows

Hey Guys! 

So todays post is about the new Clarins Ombre Matte cream to powder shadow pots* are a new generation with a silky lightweight texture with mattifying qualities. I was lucky enough to get the chance to review these and i must say i do love them! 

The really nice thing about these shadows is the texture. Although its pretty much written in the name but these shadows are really creamy, and mousse-like texture to the immediate touch, however when applied to the lids they become really easily blended and more like a powder shadow. This is really great because it allows the shadows to blend but also apply very easily and accurately. I got 3 of the shades, 05 Sparkle Grey, 02 Nude Pink, 06 Earth, which again speak for the names, Nude pink being a pretty Nude Pink, Earth being a lovely Brown etc… 

I would say these are great for all ages really because of the cream formulae to begin with, it flatters all eye shapes and blends well. however very easily blend-able so great for younger people who just want something pretty, simple and easy to apply. 

 My favourite shade is ‘Sparkle Grey‘ because I’m not only obsessed with grey but i love a little glam every so often and this shadow contains little sparkles that just look stunning on the lids when creating a smokey eye. Paired with a little silver shimmer in the inner corner and your good to go! 

I would suggest using a primer with the shadows, although they are pretty long lasting on their own, a primer will help keep any minor creasing at bay.

Until Next Time

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!

The perfect ‘Grey’ Nail-polish

Hey Guys!

I have always been the type of person who goes for the pastel pale nail colours over the deep vampy purples or bright pinks, because i am generally a very fair person, although i tan quite olive in the summer, i don’t have naturally very strong, long nails and pale pastel shades help to not only give the appearance of longer nails, but also make me look that little bit more tanned. If you watch my channel, youl probably know that I’m pretty obsessed with the colour grey at the moment! Its pretty much all my wardrobe has been until recently.

However, find the perfect grey polish isn’t like finding the perfect grey top. Its damn right impossible. Although there are some really pretty grey/purple shades out there, thats just it, they’re grey/purple, all the polishes I’ve come across have some kind of blue, taupe or purple tinge/undertone to them and thats not what I’ve been after.

so the search continued…

Until finally… i stumbled across the perfect pastel plane old ‘grey’. Thats it, no fussing, no mixture, just grey. Now i know that all grey polished are combined with the odd colours here and there to make it up, but this is the perfect pastel shade, its not too dark either and it last a long time. The only downside with this is that you may need at least 2-3 coats of the stuff to get a proper opaque look, but to be honest, after the amount of searching I’ve been doing, I’m not too bothered!

The shade is Cool Touch by Maybelline
