Tag | The Skincare Tag


1. Describe your skincare routine in 5 words
Simple, easy, nourishing, comforting & quick.

2. What is your skin type?
Combination! I've got a oily t-zone so my skin just seems to melt make up off recently, especially round my nose! But I also have dehydrated cheeks (weird right?!)

3. What is your favourite skincare product? 
At the moment I'm loving Lancome Visionnaire, it's working wonders on my large pores, slowly but gradually they are starting to look smaller! 

4. Top blemish zapper
I REALLY love the Clearasil Ultra Blemish+Mark Treatment cream, I picked it up from Boots ages ago and it's been my go to product since. All you need is a small layer over any spots or marks from previous spots (as I love to pop them!) and it helps so much to reduce the appearance and stop them pesky spots that sting.

5. Face wipes yay or nay?
For me it has to be a nay on an every day basis, but a yay on them days when you seriously cannot be bothered doing your full routine and just want something quick and easy before going to sleep!

6. Toner yay or nay?
Nay but I totally need to start using one, I only really reach for a toner if I'm feeling really luxurious and want to treat my skin, I know I should start reaching for it more often but it's just one of them steps that I never really think about when it comes to doing my skincare routine.

7. High end skincare or high end makeup?
I'd say both (is that cheating?), I'm more likely to buy high end make up though as I'm not as interested in skincare as I am make up. However if I've tried a sample of a high end skincare product and loved it, I definitely wouldn't think twice about picking it up, I'd just go all out for it. 

8. Whats the most unusual skincare product you've used?
Erm, this is quite a hard one for me, I'd probably say the Bare Minerals Powder that you put on before you go to sleep, it has loads of skin benefits in it but it looks like a powder foundation and gives a bit of coverage. I still need to give it a try but it's definitely the only skincare product I've had to look twice at and thought, ooo that's different!

9. You're in a french pharmacy and you can only pick up one thing, what is it?
I'd probably pick up something from La Roche Possay just because I haven't tried any of their stuff before, any recommendations anyone?

10. Tell us your top skincare tips?
My skincare tips are the most obvious ones:
- Drink plenty of water
- Think about what you're eating as this has a huge impact on your skin (Hello spots)
- Always take your make up off before going to sleep


I'd love to see YOU do this tag, feel free to leave your tag links down below so we can all have a read!

Beauty | Make Up Revolution Haul & Swatches


Make Up Revolution has taken the beauty community by storm, so a while back I decided to pick up some goodies when it first launched and I thought I'd share them with you now (delayed or what). 


The first thing I gravitated towards was the blusher palette: Ultra Blush And Contour Palette in Sugar and Spice. Can you believe this is only £6?! You get 8 different products in it ranging from bright pinks, to marbled products and bronzer colours, such a bargain!


I also wanted to try two of the individual blushers so I picked up the shades Hot & Wow, these are only £1 each!!


Then I saw the price of The Matte Effect Foundation and just HAD to get one, at only £2.00 I wasn't expecting much but it's actually quite a sheer DEWY foundation, ignore the matte title! The last product I picked up was a lipstick and boy do I love it! Both the foundation and lipstick were used in this video:


What other products should I buy next from Make Up Revolution? Leave comments down below!

Beauty | What's On My Face / What's My Face Worth?


I've never actually done one of these posts but when reading them it really opens your eyes as to how much make up costs and how much you spend on putting a 'few' things on your face. Recently I've been trying to be really good and only buy make up if I DESPERATELY needed it, and to say it's been difficult is an understatement, but saving for a car is my priority at the moment, so this is one of my many ways to help me cope when I walk into Boots or House Of Fraser.

Primer: L'Oreal Skin Perfection Magic Touch Instant Blur - £12.99
Foundation: No7 Instant Radiance (Shade Calico) - £12.50
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte (Shade 001) - £3.99
Concealer: MAC Prolongwear Concealer (Shade NC20) - £17.00
Illuminating Concealer: MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter (Shade Light Boost) - £18.50
Brows: Benefit Gimme Brow (Shade Light/Medium) - £17.50
Bronzer: Dior Nude Air Tan Powder (Shade 001) - £35.00
Highlighter: The Balm Mary Lou Manizer - £17.49
Eyeshadow: Wet 'n' Wild Trio (Shade Walking On Eggshells) - £4.80
Blusher: MeMeMe Blush Me! - £8.95
Mascara: Bourjois One Seconde Ultra Black - £9.99
Soap and Glory Thick & Fast - £10.00
Lipgloss: Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Shine (Shade Charm Offensive) - £7.00

GRAND TOTAL: £175.71

Uh oh, that is a lot of money and that's not even including make up brushes and skincare! This has most definitely opened my eyes to how much my 'face' is worth!

Would you like to see what other things I've been doing to stop me filling my shopping basket?
