Morning lovelies! How are we all?! I had a REALLY good weekend, as per it went by far too quickly but it was amaze whilst it lasted. I managed to have such a lazy day on Sunday; it was completely out of the norm for me but most welcomed! Oh and on Saturday night I cooked the best pizza I've ever made. Made the dough and everything myself! I made a cheese and tomato with basil. A chorizo and red onion and then two lobster calzones... OMG I excelled!
So enough food chat... this morning I want to share with you some high street products which I've been loving. Usually, I'll be honest; I am a bit of a snob and I genuinely don't have many 'chemist' buys in my stash. Mainly cos I just think for me, not many cheaper brands agree with me and I'd rather spend my money on products that I know will work. Trying cheaper alternatives for me can be a false economy cos they rarely match up to my expectations and I'm a big believer in the 'buy cheap, buy twice' saying.
First up we have the Bourjois bronzer in the palest shade they do (which I think is 51). I really like this. I have a couple of MAC bronzers but I don't know why; MAC bronzers don't last two mins in my world. They wear down so quickly... am I the only one this happens to? Anyway, I thought I'd try this one as peeps seem to rate it. I find it is just a tadge lighter than MAC's Golden which means on me it's daytime appropriate and probs a better colour as I'm uber pale. It wears fine, it doesn't go patchy, it's not orange. It's a good all rounder and for £6.99 what's to complain about?
This, the Java rice loose powder also from Bourjois is a purchase I made solely on blogger hype. I've heard so many good things about it I thought I'd have to give it a try. I wanted quite a pale setting powder for underneath my eyes Kim K style. (I REALLY want to get the banana powder but I'm just scared that'll be far to yellow on me). So I bought this and honestly since having it, it's been my setting powder of choice most of the time. I still stick with MAC for nights 'out out' but for evening dinners and daytime affairs this has been such a good 'go to'. It's not uber matte but it doesn't allow that shine to come through too early either. I mean yes, if I have this on ALL day (like 8 hours plus) I need to touch up but on the whole this is a good un.
Now I don't know if Caroline Hirons would approve with this skincare product from Neutrogena but I really like it! This is the visibly clear 2 in 1 face wash come mask and I bought it mainly after watching a YT vid where A Model Recommends talked about it. I don't use this all over because I don't need it all over and I don't use it as a wash. I use it as a mask at the top of my cheekbone where I have some milia. Now I'm not making massive claims here; I use that many products on my face I don't know for sure what is helping but I think this is helping reduce my milia. It's comfortable enough to leave on for longer than ten mins so I do. I just put a lil bit on the areas I need it and let it do it's thang. I'm left with clear, clean skin and my milia is deffo reduced.
This is supposed to be a dupe of MAC's strobe cream. I like it for glowy dewy 'I'm still a teenager' kinda makeup. I can't see this being up everyone's street cos it is a bit 'highlight on speed' but I like it. Hell I love it. I could pile on glitter over shimmer if I could. I would say though; don't apply this everywhere. I apply it on cheeks and forehead underneath a light foundation and I think that creates the best look.
