Recent Purchase Review

I also realise I haven’t posted in quite a while.. I do apologise, but I’ve been quite weighed down with work and essays for Uni.
These three items I’ve bought within the last month or so.. and I am so pleased with them all.
This is a MUST-HAVE item! Every girl should own some sort of lip stain! They are so useful! I carry mine in my bag with me at all times just incase I go on a spur of the moment trip to a cocktail bar with my friends and a bit of lippy is required. Even if I’m not wearing make-up, apply this and it instantly brings a bit of life to your face, even if you look a bit tired and hungover!
It’s Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Transferproof lip tint + balm in 006 Cherry on Cherry.
And not to mention that it smells absolutely DIVINE! almost edible!
It really does last for hours on end and much less messy than lip stick which is sticky and transfers easily.
I 100% recommend this lip tint!
The second buy was a foundation.. I was a little disappointed eventually with my Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam that I bought a while ago, as the coverage was not as thick as I needed. It was perfect for what I needed to start with, but as the cold weather seemed to be staying, making my cheeks pink and skin rather dry and pale and the constant late nights, I needed something thicker that could give my face an all over “new skin”. Hoping to create a new evenly coloured layer on my face, I bought the thickest foundation I could think of… Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in 040 Fawn. Still light to touch, but has amazing coverage, covering any blemishes I have and giving me a clean blank canvas.
When I first used this product a few years ago, I wasn’t impressed and the choice and range of colours was minimal so I either looked ghostly or resembling a tangerine. Now however, they have more colours to better match your skin tone
The Third was something my mum bought for me. As earlier mentioned, my skin is quite blothchy - mainly from excessive unnecessary use of acne cream (I used it when I had clear skin.. to KEEP it clear - something which I don’t recommend.. as it bleaches your skin) So yeah.. my skin has pale patches so my skin tone is really uneven and then when my face is too hot or too cold.. like most people, the sides of my cheeks get red.. but stay red for ages.
No7 have this Calm Skin Redness-relief Balm that works wonders! It’s hypo-allergenic so anyone can use it, even if they have super-sensitive skin! It is to be used underneath your normal moisturiser, it is supposed to calm your skin, then strengthen and hydrate throughout the day. Since using it, my face is looking a lot less blotchy!
