My Favourite Drugstore Foundations!

So here's my 3 favourite drugstore/ high street foundations. 

I'm going to start off with Rimmel London's 'Wake Me Up' foundation. I have been aware of the huge hype circulating this foundation so me being my skeptical self had to try this out for myself. This product certainly didn't disappoint me. I was so shocked at how well it blended and how it gave me a subtle glow to my skin. I was aware that this product had a slight shimmer to it but on my face the shimmer was not noticeable at all. This foundation has an anti-fatigue effect which sort of is true to an extent. I found this foundation certainly evened out my skins redness and is build able but when it comes to flawless looking skin I certainly reach out for my 'Lasting Finish' foundation which I will come to in just a mo! Overall this product is very moisturising, evens out my skin, covers my under eye circles and gives me a radiant glow.This product retails around £8.99.
Rating for this product - 4/5  

The next product I am going to talk about is the Rimmel London 'Lasting Finish 25 Hour' foundation. I absolutely love this product for when I need a full coverage and when I want to achieve a flawless look. This is in the lightest shade but I have to admit it is a tad too dark for me but it blends well and is perfect for when you catch a tan. I don't even have to build up this product to achieve a flawless look due to the formula being rather thick. This product is again moisturising and gives me a lovely glow. The only downfall to this product is that it can transfer onto clothes, hands etc so I'd advise setting the foundation with a powder. This product retails at around £6.99.
Rating for this product - 4.5/5

The final product I am going to talk about is Bourjois ' Healthy Mix Serum' this product has a different formula to the other two foundations, this product has a gel based formula which for me makes the foundation feel light on my skin and blends very well. This is in the shade light vanilla and is the perfect shade for my skin. The bottle may seem small and thin but it does last quite a while. The only downfall to this product is that it doesn't hide my blemishes that well and the formula makes my skin feel and appear quite dry. This product retails at around £9.99.
Rating for this product - 2/5

Clutch, It's a Good word Isn't It? Clutch.

Hello there my darlings!
Here's yet another outfit post for you fabulous people out there.

I also added a simple gold chain jut for a bit of fanciness! (look at me being all fancy shmancy) 

Top - Topshop / Jeans - Next / Shoes - Primark / Gold Chain - New Look / Blazer - New Look / Bag - Primark.

Feeling A Bit Blue!

Hey guys!

All my exams are finally over so more time to focus on my blog for the next couple of months.

Here's a casual outfit I just went to the cinema and Nandos. I went to see 'The Purge' and was highly disappointed! I may even start reviewing some movies so let me know in the comments if that would interest you :)

Leigh Jeans - Topshop / Converse - Office

T-Shirt - Topshop / Necklace - Chicnova

Also if you're wondering I used Directions hair dye in the colour turquoise (takes a lot of dying to get rid of it may I add!)

Makeup Haul and Review!


Sorry I haven't been around an awful lot, I've been a tad busy with exams and other goings on.

I recently purchased a few beauty related items and thought I'd share my opinions on the products. So my first item is my first ever Topshop lipstick! It is called 'Rumor has it' and it a lovely nude/pink colour. It compliments my pale complexion and is basically an enhancement of my natural lip colour. It has a moisturising texture and lasts a good few hours.This is also an amazing dupe for Mac's 'Modesty' cremesheen lipstick.

My next item is the Rimmel London 'Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation'. This foundation has to be God's creation! This product not only covers all of my blemishes and redness but also hydrates my skin and gives my skin a healthy dewy glow that i absolutely love! This foundation lasts all day without any sort of melting. The only downside to this product is that the lightest shade (100 Ivory) is a tad dark on my skin but it is blend-able and is great for the Summer. Another downfall is it can be transferable onto clothing or other items touching the face but this can be cured by a light layer of powder over the face.

Next  is the new MUA palette. This has every colour I could possibly need! They have a lovely range of matte and shimmer eye shadows and all the neutral colours you could want in a palette. I have used every colour and the pigmentation is great and it does last most of the day.

My final product is the Maybelline 'Color Show' nail polish. I didn't like this product at all. When i first saw it I loved the colour and the price wasn't too bad! The problems I had was this product stained my nails and chipped straight away. Also this product took a very long time to dry so a big thumbs down for this product!

Topshop Lipstick - £8.00
Rimmel London Foundation - £5.95
MUA Palette - £4.00
Maybelline Color Show - £2.00
