Charlotte Tilbury Unisex Healthy Glow

I bought this a few weeks ago while I was in London. It's a great product for summer as it's light. It's also great for days when you can't be bothered with full foundation.

It costs £35.00 so it's not cheap but I've been really enjoying it.

You can find it Here

Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Foundation

I got a sample of this a few weeks ago and have really been loving it. Watch the video to see it in action.

Pan That Palette 2016 Finale

I have been absent from this blog for way too long.  I'm going to try and update it occasionally when I can and if I have something of interest to share.

I have been attempting to pan 2 palettes for the last year.  It;s not as easy as it looks.  Some people seem to fly through their eyeshadows.  Alas not I.

Check out my Youtube video to see how I got on xx

No 7 Airbrush Away Foundation

This foundation is the latest one to join the No 7 family of foundations.  It was launched last week and I happened to be in Boots the day after the launch and they were obviously pushing the new foundation.  Of course me being me I didn't take much persuasion and I left with a shiny new bottle of it in the shade Calico.

It's reassuring that I was colour matched again and still came up with the same shade.  I have always been matched to Calico by this machine so its pretty consistent.

The foundation costs £16.50 so it's quite expensive and therefore may be worth the wait for a 342 offer to come along.  When I got mine there was a buy one get one half price so I also got myself colour matched to a blusher which I haven't tried as yet.

So far so good with the foundation.  I've been wearing it for the last 3 days.  It wears well, blends well and a little goes a long way.  It doesn't settle into fine lines like some foundations do which is a huge plus for me as I find this to be a problem when one reaches a certain age.

My only complaint is I hate the packaging.  It comes in a glass bottle with a dropper.  Obviously there must be some sensible reason for the dropper but for the life of me I cannot see it.  I find it to be awkward and not very efficient using the dropper.  It's not very good at dropping.  I have used it to swipe the foundation straight onto my face which works quite well and much better than using the dropper as an actual dropper.  I then blend it in with my Real Techniques Buffing brush.  The coverage is better than I expected and it can be built up to your desired coverage.  This makes it great for every day use and also for building up for that special night out.

I cannot recommend this foundation highly enough.  I truly love it.  If only they would change the packaging then it would be perfect xx

H and M Nude Eyeshadow Quad

H and M is not a place I would think of trying for makeup.  However I am a huge fan of their clothes so because of that I'm in it quite often.  It was only a matter of time before I gave into the temptation of trying their cosmetics.

They don't have a lot of makeup items.  A few eyeshadow choices and a few lip choices is about all they do but what I have tried I have mostly loved.

This tutorial features a quad I bought recently.  I was a bit disappointed with the lipgloss but it will make a good lip balm if nothing else.

Thanks for taking the time to visit xx
