L'Oreal primer

Since my first visit to the MAC counter I have used a primer under my make up and tend to find that my make up doesn't go on properly unless I use it! However I decided to try something other than macs primer for a wee change and ended up at the L'Oreal Studio Secrets counter ( you will usually find it in a different location to your usual L'Oreal counter) .

This is the primer I picked up,

This primer is the anti-shine one as I can be prone to shiny skin. I find the feel of this primer on my skin amazing as it's so soft and smooth thus helping you get a very even finish to your foundation. I also find that I use less foundation as it spreads very easily and an extra bonus I have reduced the amount of times that I top up my make up. Your foundation sticks to it really well without clumping ( my b/f laughs at me as I call my primer my foundation glue )and I cannot stress how even it looks .

What I also love about this range is that they have loads of primers for different types of skin, including a primer for dull skin and skin that is prone to redness. The list doesn't end there so hopefully there is a primer that will suit your skin type. I purchased my primer from boots as they have a special offer on it saving you £2 so it's only costing you £7.99.Well worth the money i think! Hopefully it will work as well for you. much luv ♥

My weekly lush visit!

The other day i decided to do my usual nosey around lush and decided to finally give into curiosity and try the shampoo bars! As usual i ended up walking away with more than i had intended to buy ! After buying a few bath melts for my mum and couple of girls in my work i asked the girl in the shop to explain a few of the shampoos to me. I ended up with seanik and ultimate shine.

The bars above are the ultimate shine bars. These bars are for making your hair really soft and shiny and they also make your hair smell really good. I was a little bit confused as to how to use them however I was told to rub the bar in my hands (like a bar of soap) and to my amazement within seconds there was a creamy thick lather in my hands. When applying it to my hair the smell was amazing with one of the ingredients being ylang ylang. After rinsing and drying my hair it felt squeaky clean which was amazing as I use quite a lot of products in my hair and not all shampoos give me this clean feeling. It felt as though all the gunk that was in my hair was gone and all I was left with was squeaky clean, super soft and super shiny hair. Brilliant!

The picture above is the Seanik bars. These bars are intended for really big volume hair and also to make your hair smooth. The ingredients in this bar are seaweed and sea salt there is also lemon juice in them to give your hair a nice smell and to make it shiny! After my mum trying this bar she confirmed that just like the ultimate shine bar it makes your hair shiny and product free, however when you lather the bar in your hands its quite rough due to the salt. After drying her hair she found that her hair did have body in it however she did have to use products in order to get the volume she was after.

From the feedback my mum gave me in comparison to mine i would say that I could definitely recommend the ultimate shine bar. However after I use this bar I will be trying other ones to see which one suits my hair the best. Just a reminder if you do buy the shampoo bars to take them out of the shower so that they last you longer and don't melt away!

Also on my travels i picked up the valentine limited edition mushroom.

These magic little red and white mushrooms smell amazing. The scent of strawberry and vanilla is so girly and relaxing. After popping it in the bath it slowly melted away leaving my bath water bright red with white bubbles floating on the top the smell was so amazing I couldn't wait to sink into the bath and enjoy the aroma. I was slightly scared that my skin or my bath may turn red but after draining the water i found that neither of the above happened and all I was left with was silky soft skin. All I can say is stock up on them As they are only a valentines special! x x x

Coralista crush!

I recently discovered that I have a crush on benefits Coralista blush! I have been using this product since it came out and instantly loved its natural pink colour. I find that this blush goes on really easily and adds a slight highlight to your cheeks with its subtle shimmer. What i also love about this product is it's smell. Yes I know you may not smell anything when you open the box however when you brush it along your cheeks you get a faint smell of sweeties, an added bonus to your purchase. I can truly recommend this product and hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.
