A Colourful Look with the Sleek Del Mar Eyeshadow Palette!

Posted on June 17, 2014


Hi Guys!

So you may have seen my post yesterday reviewing some gorgeous Sleek Makeup products, with one of them being the i-Divine Del Mar Volume 1 Eyeshadow Palette – well here is the very colourful look I’ve put together using it! These colours are pretty intense so I’d definitely wear this look with bronzed skin and a nude lip. A neutral colour or black outfit would also make your eyes really stand out!

This is really a pretty straightforward look with On The Rocks (a bright, semi matte orange) in the inner corner of the eye, Balearic Beat (matte lime green) in the centre of the eyelid and Blue Marlin in the crease and brought slightly under the bottom eyelashes. The colours were blended together across the eyelid and I finished the look using Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Eyeliner Pen and Benefit They’re Real Mascara.




So what do you think? Do you like this look or is it a bit too much colour for you? I’d love to hear yur thoughts!? xxx

Bourjois Happy Light Foundation Review

Posted on February 17, 2014

Hi Guys!

I’ve been using the same foundation for years now – Chanel Vitalumiere, and also I bought a fab Dior BB Cream last year too, but as much as I love them, these are pretty expensive products to replace. So I thought I’d check out what Boots had to offer to see if I could find a cheaper foundation that’s on par with these high end brands…

I was looking for a foundation around the £10 mark, and ended up going for the Bourjois Happy Light  Foundation in 50, which is the lightest colour, and it was a very reasonable £11.99.

This product has great reviews so I thought I couldn’t go wrong!

The colour looked great when I squirted it on my hand, I’m pretty pale and I find it hard to find a decent foundation that suits my skin tone but doesn’t make me look like a ghost! This foundation really sounded like it was just what I was looking for –

‘Its velvety formula blends effortlessly for a luminous, undetectable and natural finish.It contains translucent pigments to enhance your inner glow and correct imperfections without masking.And, what’s more, it lets skin breathe thanks to its lightweight feel and moisturising ingredients. Available in 5 flawless shades’

And here are the results… Well, to be honest I’m not very impressed. Firstly the colour came out really dark, this probably sounds strange it almost made my skin look kind of dirty. Since taking these photos I’ve tried the foundation a second time just to be sure I’m not being overly harsh and it definitely has this effect. The finish is also quite sheer, though my skin isn’t that bad I felt like I needed more coverage. Also, my skin tens a to be dry, and this foundation seemed to highlight every dry patch and imperfection!

You can see I have a couple of spots around my chin which haven’t been covered at all, so overall I’m not very impressed with this foundation, it’s just not for me unfortunately. It’s a shame really, I’m the biggest fan of Bourjois Eyeliners so I thought I’d really like this, never mind hey!

Good points – Well personally the only good point for me would be the price! This would also be good for those with oil prone skin.

Bad points – I was hoping for more coverage really, and this foundation isn’t really suited for dry skin like mine. I think another let down is that there are only five shades available so this foundation isn’t suited to darker skin tones.

I hope you enjoyed my review and found it useful xxx
