Sick Day Make-Up

In the last few weeks I've been feeling a bit run down and meh. I've got some stupid cold that I can't quite shake off. Here is the make-up I used when I thought I was going to have to leave the house after a day in bed. In the end we didn't, but hopefully this will still be helpful.

Review: Seventeen Stay Time Long Wear Primer

After getting my hands on MAC's Fortified Skin Enhancer back in April (review - here) I've been a little obsessed with primers, I use it every single day and it's still going strong, although its probably going to run out soon. With that in mind, I had a look at Seventeen's latest offerings, in amongst them are a range of new primers. I went for the Long Wear version with the aim of keeping my make-up on through a day of lectures.

Review: Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

I’m not really a hair person, I don’t do a whole lot to it and I’ve never used any masks or treatments, other than oil, on it. But when I saw that October’s Issue of In Style magazine came with a sample of the much hyped Elasticizer from Philip Kingsley I figured it would be worth a shot. The only thing I know about Philip Kingsley products is they’re expensive but people seem to love them.

Face Mask Play Time

I went into Primark for a completely different reason and got sucked in by the things that flank you when you're queueing for the checkout. And I fell for it. Oops. What sucked me in was a couple of face masks from Montagne Jeunesse. I really like these as a concept because you can only get a couple of uses out of each mask so if you don't like it you don't have a huge pot or tube left over. At 0.90p per sachet in Primark they're obviously cheaper than a regular face mask but if you really liked one particular one the cost would add up.

Rimmel ScandalEyes

These aren't particularly new offerings from Rimmel but they are relatively new to me. They are both new editions to their ScandalEyes range - the Retro Glam mascara and the Shadow paints cream eyeshadow.

Review: MAC Royal Azalea

This was a late birthday present from one of my university friends (thanks Dom!) and it was definitely worth the wait. My first ever MAC lipstick! It's a Sheen Supreme and in the shade Royal Azalea. Love at first sight.

Review: Tangle Teezer

Slightly ad-hoc blog post today as I'm at my boyfriend's and we've spent the whole day traveling so I thought I'd write something easy about a product I really like. I'm going to attempt to write up and review lots of products while I'm here so I can schedule them to go up while I'm back settling into uni. Depending on how much content I manage to pull up and get out there could be scope for three blog posts a week instead of two. But we'll see, no promises.

My Boyfriend Does My Make-Up

A slight change here and I hope it's worth the wait and lack of Monday blog post. I've just moved into my new university house and whilst settling in my boyfriend said "Blog post idea - I do your make-up?" Well I wasn't about to say no to that. So here it is, filmed in terrible lighting on his MacBook. I hope it's OK to watch. It is a little long, sorry, but I hope it's entertaining for you all. There's some outtakes at the end too.
