L'oreal Micellar Water Solution Review

Hey Lovelies, here's another review today, it's on the L'oreal Micellar Water, I'm sure you will have heard of it in the blogging world.

The L'oreal Micellar Water is meant to be a dupe for Bioderma but a lot cheaper, I've not tried Bioderma so I can't make a comparison.

The Micellar Water claims to dissolve makeup, unclog pores and remove impurities and tone and soothe skin, I agree with all of these it takes all my makeup off and unclogs my pores and it feels really nice on the skin and it does soothe it, my sister uses it and has sensitive skin and works really well for her too.

What I do is I use a makeup wipe to take my makeup off and then use this after with cotton pads to make sure all my makeup has gone and then I moisturise.

All I do is squeeze a small amount onto a cotton pad and work all around my face and neck and it gets rid of makeup really fast and leaves your face feeling nice and fresh and clean.

It only costs £3.33 which is really inexpensive and it's a really good product, you can buy it from Boots or Superdrug.

Overall I think it's a great product and highly recommend you going out and buying it and trying it for yourself.

Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons Review

Hey Lovelies, I hope your all having a nice weekend, I've got a review for you on the Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons, I know I'm a little late on this bandwagon but I still thought I would share my thoughts on them.

I already have the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains and I love them and I heard so many good things about these Bourjois ones so I wanted to try them too.

These are another dupe for the Clinique Chubby Sticks, there has been lots of different brands doing dupes for the chubby sticks.

I love the packaging it's really nice and neat.

There is four different shades, I have Peach on the Beach which is a pale peachy colour and Red Sunrise which is a raspberry red shade. The other two shades are Orange Punch which is obviously a orange shade and Fuchsia Libra a blue toned fuchsia pink shade and I definitely want to buy these other two shades.

I love both the shades Peach on the Beach is a nice everyday shade that I've been wearing the most and Red Sunrise is still a nice shade for a pop of colour to the lips and if your not confident in wearing a deep red shade this is a good alternative.
I find them really easy to apply and because there a crayon it makes it more precise.

They are really pigmented and glossy, it says 10 hour wear but I don't think it lasts that long but it is quite long lasting, on me it last a few hours and I like the stain it leaves behind on the lips. It leaves your lips feeling moisturised which I really like.
Here's swatches of them both, there both great shades.

Bourjois Lip Crayons are £7.99 which I think is a reasonable price and they are amazing and I highly recommend going out and buying them.

What do you think to the Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons?

The One and Only Tag

Hey Lovelies, I've got a tag for you today, I wasn't tagged by anyone but I thought it was a good tag to do and so I decided to do it.

The Question: If you could only have one ______ what would it be? And, in a few words, why?

I haven't tried many primers but my favourite out of the few I have tried is the Benefit Porefessional, it makes my skin feel soft and helps keep my makeup on for longer.
Base Product
My Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation, it's a nice foundation with a medium coverage, it matches my skin really well and it's easy to apply and blend in.

I think most youtubers and beauty bloggers will say this, the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, it covers up spots and under eye circles really well, lasts a long time and is cheap.

I've mentioned this before but it has to be my Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder, it's a really nice powder that helps your makeup stay on for longer and keeps your face matte.

Blush-Cream or Powder
This is a blush that I wear the most and always go back to if I don't know what to wear, it's the L'oreal Sandalwood Pink Blush, it's a great shade if your pale like me and it just suits my skintone really well.


NYC Sunny Bronzer, it's a matte bronzer thats the right shade for me it's not too dark or muddy and I can use it contour with aswell and it's really pigmented.
If you've read my blog or watched my YouTube you will know it's the MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter, it's been a favourite of mine since I got it and use it most days, it's a pinky shimmery highlighter.
Makeup Brush-Single
This was defintely a hard one for me but I decide on the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, you can use it for foundation, powder and blush and it blends your makeup easily.

Eyebrow Product
This was easy for me it's what I use mostly on my eyebrows it's the Rimmel London Eyebrow Pencil, I know some people don't like pencil but I do, it's easy to use and my brows look nice.

I found this one a hard one aswell, I wear eyeshadow a lot but it's mostly neutral shades and I decided on MAC's Satin Taupe it's a taupey brown shade that look's great on any eye colour, it's long lasting and really pigmented.

I've talked about it before it's the Soap and Glory Supercat Eyeliner, it's quite black, its easy to use and it's long lasting.
It would have to be the Benefit Bad Gal Lash, I do have the They're Real Mascara but I haven't tried it out yet, the Bad Gal Lash lengthens and volumizers my lashes without clumping.
Lipstick, Lip Gloss or Lip Stain
This was also another hard one for me, I have lots of lip products and I like wearing different shades but I decided on the Natural Collection Rose Bud, it's a pinky gold shade that is natural looking and that can go with most looks, it's really pigmented, it's not the most long lasting but it is only £1.99.
Lip Liner
I don't wear lip liner very often but the one I use the most is Rimmel London's Spice lip liner it's a natural shade, that's long lasting and pigmented.
Lip Balm
I chose the Korres Lip Butter in Wild Rose, this is a berry shade and I love wearing this when I don't want to wear a lipstick, it's really pigmented, it makes your lips feel soft and is quite long lasting.
Nail Polish
I decided on the No7 Stay Perfect Nail Polish in Rose Truffle, it's a nice shade that you could wear in both winter and summer, it's easy to apply and lasts quite a long time without chipping.

I hope you enjoyed the tag and I tag you all to do it, if you do the tag leave your link down below, would love to see your answers.

Benefit World Famous Neutrals Makeup Look

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a great weekend, about a month ago I did a review of the Benefit World Famous Neutrals and some of you said you wanted me to do a makeup look for you so here it is.

It's a really simple and easy look to do and looks stunning.

I first applied the cream eyeshadow in No Pressure as a base and then applied Thanks A Latte on the lid, Quick Look Busy in the crease and outer corner and Call Me Buff as the highlight under the brow bone and in the inner corner and then I applied eyeliner and mascara.

I hope you enjoyed the look, I haven't done a makeup look in ages and really enjoyed doing them again and if you do a look with palette let me know so I can take a look.

If you want me to create some more looks with the palette let me know.
