Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder / Revlon Grow Luscious / Garnier Dark Spot Corrector / Garnier BB Cream
I picked these 4 items up a while ago, does anyone else do that? Buy something then keep it for ages without using it. I had a Boots voucher before Christmas and these are what I picked up.
This was only £3.99 from Boots. For some reason I’ve only ever tried a couple of powders. One being my Mac Sheer Pressed Powder and the others are from e.l.f. I really like my Mac one but I thought it was time I tried one from Rimmel as the Stay Matt gets such rave reviews. I didn’t want a Matt finish so went for the Clear Complexion one as I could do with all the help I can get in that department. Have you tried this powder? Let me know what you think.
The packaging is OK – the lid isn’t the most secure but I rarely travel so this won’t often be out of the house. You also get quite alot 16g of product for your £3.99. That’s a pretty good deal. I will let you know how find it. I was going to wait until my Mac Sheer Pressed Powder 12g £20.00 was finished but that’s taking me a long time, I’m just going to alternate them. That way I can compare which I prefer.
Me being the divvy I am picked up the brown instead of the black. I do that so often and because in the UK we’re unable to return cosmetics I’m stuck with it. I am looking forward to seeing if this makes any difference to my lashes. I can’t find it online to link to as they seem to have bought out a new one – the Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara. Even tho this is brown I will still use it, probably during the day. Still wish it was black.
My lashes aren’t super short but I think we’d all like them to be a little longer. More fluttery. I will keep you updated with any lash developments. I can’t remember what I paid for it but I think it was around £8.
Being 34 – almost 35 my skin is starting to change, nothing dramatic but I notice slight differences. I have never been one to sunbathe or go on sunbeds. But I did live in Cyprus for a while & we are a family of skiers & so have been exposed to the sun. I am hoping that this helps a little with sunspots.
Also over the past year I have had some family stress & my skin has bore the brunt of that. Its been feeling dull and not as healthy looking as I know it usually is. So fingers crossed this Garnier cream helps brighten the meh areas and gives my skin a kick back into healthiness I know that food plays a big part in that too & I have been making some positive changes in my diet and have been juicing and making smoothies where I can and eating alot more fresh organic foods. So I’m hoping the combination of the 2 work a small miracle.
I picked this up for £9.99 and i love the packaging. It’s in a metal style tube, it feels quite luxurious. As always let me know if you have any experience using this & if you have seen any improvements.
I have the original Garnier BB Cream & liked that but I definitely need the one for Oily skin. So when this was released last year I picked it up. I’ve had this for a while too but was using up my No7 BB cream. I will start using it when the weather is more warmer. I like wearing a fuller coverage foundation in the winter & BB Creams / Tinted Moisturiser in the Spring / Summer Do you use a BB cream? Which are your favourites.
