Things I'm Loving!

Monday 22 August 2011

Hey Ladies,

Being the total fail whale that I am I totally failed at editing & uploading my July favourite video so thought i'd show you some of my current favourite things.

Before you say anything, yes I am allowed to have 3 favourite foundations at the same time, no judgement here!

So the run down:

Skin 79 Diamond BB Cream
There have been SO many posts on BB creams recently with every Tom, Dick & Harry releasing them, I personally think the Japanese brands produce the best ones, yes they may be ashy (this being no exception) but I find once they settle on the skin & you add your bronzer/blush over the top it looks perfectly fine. Any way, this one is more suitable for dryer skins & makes your skin look beautiful, really radiant and with a medium coverage is a really good everyday 'foundation' as it lasts on your skin pretty much all day with a setting powder.

Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint (out in September)
A very hyped new release from Liz Earle their first steps into makeup & let me tell you they've done it right, it is basically a tinted moisturiser with an SPF, it leaves your skin looking really radiant & pretty, certainly not perfect as there's only a light coverage but this to me is my perfect weekend foundation, light easy coverage that just requires no effort.

ELF Flawless Foundation
The name I have a problem with as I don't think there's enough coverage with this foundation to reward it with the name 'Flawless' but it gives you a really lovely medium coverage with a radiant (are you picking up on this weeks theme) finish & the lasting power is fairly decent i'd say with a touch up it lasts a day of work!

Barry M Peach Melba
I saw this in Boots on Saturday & swore I had it, but the word 'new' next to the name told me I probably didn't (just call me Sherlock)  well what can I say it is the most lovely pastel peach, not streaky & has lasted well on my nails!!

Elf - Teal Blue
Seriously the most gorgeous vibrant jade shade, I totally am in love with it & wore it for a week straight, I even ordered a back up!

Barbara Daly Lash Boost Mascara
This is a great mascara for people who have naturally longer lashes, it thickens them & holds a curl really nicely and unlike some budget mascaras it doesn't make your lashes crispy!!

Sleek Makeup Nude Collection (Out August 31st)
Seriously LOVE this collection, the palette is lovely maybe a tad too matte for me but the shimmery shades are to die for & it is a great one for people starting out with eyeshadow and looking to branch out a little as it has the 'comfort zone' shades & then some more interesting ones. The blush like all Sleek blushes looks totally unwearable but with a light hand is a gorgeous (dare I say it) autumnal blush, really adds warmth to the face and is subtle down the back of the cheek bones instead of on the apples of your cheeks. The lip conditioner is again lovely adds the tiniest nude tint to your lips and conditions them as well, I would prefer the tinted lip conditioners to be slightly 'more' in texture by that I mean like the Mac ones which feel like you have more than a bit of oil on your lips (yes I'm mental) Oh well we can't have everything can we?! I know you'll have all heard loads on the collection hence me popping my opinion on this post about it but I totally recommend it & guess what IT'S PERMANENT!!!

So those are my current favourites/things i'm loving, I am happy to say my jewellery shop TLC Treasures is up & running so check it out, thank you so much to those of you who've already ordered, I seriously love you all!! Hopefully normal blogging shall resume this week (typical i've lost my frigging memory card but I shall soldier on!)

  9. I really want to try a proper BB cream but I can't find any that look pink enough for my skin. I really want that ELF polish, the swatches I've seen look gorgeous!

  10. Great post :) I thought Skin79 was korean? I love their BB creams too - haven't tried any that the brands over here have brought out!


  11. I love the sleek palettes. You said that some are too matte, so does that mean that there aren't many shimmery shades?xx
