My quest for a drugstore eye primer is ongoing. Not that I’ve actually tried that many, but it’s hard to find something that works that doesn’t break the bank. For a few months now I’ve been using Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Creme de Nude as a base for my eyeshadow and liquid/gel liner. I wanted to see if this would work as a primer to prevent creasing and to stop my eyeliner transferring to my brow bone.
Any excuse to wear glitter and sparkles on my face and/or body I’ll take it. New Year’s seems like a better excuse than any. I’m also wanting to use my Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp palette at every opportunity, so I decided to create a New Year’s Eve makeup tutorial with all four beautiful shades.
Somehow it’s only one week until the big day. How we’ve managed to reach this point and get though all of 2016’s shit I don’t know. But one way or another, Christmas day is almost upon us. If you’ve left your shopping to the last minute, you might be panicking and wondering where on earth to start. But fear not! Being the helpful Christmas elf that I am, I’ve compiled a gift guide for all you last minuters.
It’s been a hot minute since I posted a review (or any blog post for that matter…). I’ve mentioned before that I’m constantly trying out new beauty products, so I wanted to share a review of a skin care item I’ve been using lately. La Roche Posay is one of my favourite skin care brands. Their products lie somewhere between high-end and drugstore price range so I don’t feel completely guilty when I buy something, but I know I’m usually getting a good product. The Hydraphase Intense Legere is a hydrating moisturiser for normal/combination skin. It also claims to be suitable for those with sensitive skin.
Walking into TK Maxx and seeing the beauty aisle stocked full of Korean skincare was my ‘kid walking into a candy store’ reality. You’d be surprised how easy I am to please.
Having purchased a few items online earlier this year from brands such as Tony Moly and Laneige, I was overjoyed when I came across a range of Korean beauty products during my latest visit to TK Maxx. Now, I can’t pretend I’m an expert on the Korean beauty scene. If we’re being honest my unruly obsession of novelty packaging was probably what pushed me to buy these.
When it comes to skin care I find myself on a never ending journey, trying new products each time I hit the bottom of another jar. It’s as if I’m convinced that no matter how much I enjoyed using the product, there must be something better (try not to read too much into what that might say about my personality). Suffice to say my product knowledge is ever expanding, and as a skin care fangirl I’m constantly trying different brands and formulas.
