Revlon ColorStay – Great Foundation!

My shade is Medium Beige 005 – Oily/Combination
This foundation stays out without needing a touch up for about 10 hours. I’ve never tried it for 24 hours  because that’s just a bit gross but I’m sure it lives up to its name! Shine is significantly less while wearing Colorstay foundation but it doesn’t dry the skin. It doesn’t cause breakouts either and it doesn’t run off onto clothing easily, so snuggle away! I’m so happy they have put it in a pump bottle cause to me that was the only downside to this foundation. Now it gets a 10/10

Alila Fix That Makeup Setting Spray

Alila Fix That Makeup Setting Spray

This is a good setting spray, definitely keeps make up in place all day, except if its very hot and sweaty (still better then having no setting spray though).
It does dry on the face in under 60 seconds. Doesn’t always spray with an even mist though, some sprays come out finer then others.
It doesn’t cause breakouts.
It has a strong smell similar to hairspray when first sprayed which I don’t particularly like, and it makes me concerned as to how much chemicals I am putting on my face.
I don’t love the packaging of this spray, it has a bit too much of a “cheap”, “home-made” feel to it, with a price that doesn’t match.
It is still cheaper then a lot of the other brands of setting sprays out there at the moment.
The only way to buy this at the moment is online on their website, I prefer to pick up this kind of thing in store or on a site that has the other make-up I buy, that is why I would not repurchase it.

Gucci Bamboo EDP

Feminine and Fresh Yet Sensual

This fragrance is feminine and fresh yet sensual with an undertone of sweetness that isn’t too sweet… so I think it can be worn day or night. It is fairly long lasting on the skin, but doesn’t last all day, I’d say about 5 hours.
The bottle is simple and classic in a rectangular diamond shape with a lid that mimics a bamboo stick.


Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Hair Oil

I love hair oils! And Black seed oil is not something I had ever heard of so I was excited to try my sample of this Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Oil.
It doesnt have the same amazing smell as the dry shampoo and conditioner in this range which I was disappointed about. But it does still have a nice subtle scent.
It has a thick texture but is light weight once applied to hair. It is absorbed easily and doesn’t leave hair looking or feeling oily.
Like the whole Kardashian Beauty hair range it is just too expensive for my budget and wouldn’t be something I would spend on.

Kardashian Beauty Take 2 Dry Shampoo

Kardashian Beauty Take 2 Dry Shampoo

My favourite thing about this dry shampoo is the smell! In fact when I spray this in my hair I don’t even wear perfume; that’s how good it smells (there should be a perfume with this scent in my opinion).

It is effective on the roots as a dry shampoo and leaves no residue at all. I wouldn’t say it is quite as effective as Batiste though.

The bottle is very pretty as well with the black to metallic pink ombre.

It is very pricey though, I would never spend that much on dry shampoo!.. could buy more then 5-6 bottles of Batiste Dry Shampoo for that price!

Shield MotionSense Fresh Confidence

I have always used Shield as my brand of deodorant… and now it’s even better!  

I would definitely recommend these products to anyone, especially if you are active.

Shield really is long lasting against sweat and odour. Once applied in the morning it lasts throughout the whole day. Although I can’t say I’ve ever tested it for more than 12 hours max (that’s just a bit gross haha), they do promise 48 hour protection!

What an amazing technology! I was skeptical that something like this could be possible, and I’m not sure how it is, but I can say that it really does work!

Just when I thought Shield couldn’t get any better – they did!
