I am a product Junkie and my hubby really thinks i have a problem. I thought i would share with you some of the products i have been loving and using alot lately.
So the first thing is Boots No7 BB Cream. I have been using this product for around one month now and i have been really liking it. I use it as a tinted moisturiser, on the days i don’t want to wear full foundation. Its light wearing and gives your skin a glow without looking too madeup. I think it would look better in the spring/summer when i have a little more natural colour. But still i have found it to wear well. I prime my skin first as i have found is stays on longer – i get about 7 hours good wear. Not bad. I purchased it using my No7 voucher that Boots always do & this made the product £7.95. Not sure i would pay the full price of £12.95. I have shade medium for Normal/Oily Skin
Next item is from Tesco, it’s their new (fairly new) makeup line called Vivo. I have heard alot of great things about this makeup line and was shocked at the variety and range of products they had. The item i have been using the most is an eyeshadow in the colour Mink. It was only £1.50 and has amazing colour payoff and the quality is very good. I have a few other items to try and will let you know how i get on. If your in Tesco i recommend picking up a few bits to try. Let me know how you get on too.
I have been loving using my Bourjois Volume Clubbing Eyeliner in Ultra Black. I can confirm it is super black. I have been using this for a good few months and its showing no signs of drying out and i have lots of product left. Its really easy to apply and has a small thin wand applicator, this is great for getting really precise lines (which i like for day time). It lasts for the longest time and i have had no smudging. This stuff goes nowhere! Again its a great price £6.99 and Superdrug always have 3 for 2 on lots of their makeup. So you can always get a bargain.
Now for a little skincare, when i was visiting family i went to the Cheshire Oaks Outlet Village & persuaded my hubby to spend like an hour in the Cosmetic Company Outlet (CCO) — where they sell discounted Mac, Bobbi Brown, Origins, Clinique & a few other high end brands. Its heaven for the beauty obsessed. If you love makeup you need to head to one. I think their are 4 at various Outlet Villages, like Portsmouth, Bicester, Cheshire Oaks & Designer Outlet Swindon. Really worth the trip if you can get to one.
I picked up a few bits, but the main thing i am loving is my Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Set. I like to use it at night not in the morning as i find it quite thick and having oily skin it doesn’t wear too well for me under my makeup. It smells really grown up and herbal, which i like. A little bit goes along way and a pot would last for the longest time. It helps calm my skin down and gives it a real moisture boost. I can’t remember how much i paid as it was in a little set with the Mega Mushroom Face Cleanser & Soothing Treatment Lotion. It was no more than £25.
Let me know what products you are loving as i’m always on the lookout for new tried and tested things to buy.
