Beauty Round Up #1

Beauty Favourite – Garnier’s Perfect Blur is unbelievable, it works like a primer triple the price, it hides pores and just makes skin look great and provides a perfect base for foundation/tinted moisturiser.

Beauty Disappointment – Ojon’s Restorative Mask, the smell is just too overpowering and the results don’t meet my expectations or the price.

Nails – I think Barry M makes the great quality nail polishes for a tiny price, I’ve been sporting Gelly Grapefruit on my toes and Gelly Lychee on my fingers.

Beauty Want – I know this available from John Lewis and the website but I need to be skin matched, I don’t know if the lightest shade will be pale enough. As much as I’m bored of BB Creams and now CC Creams, I really want to try this one, from the reviews which are available, it sounds amazing and I’m imagining it will probably be one of the best, if not the best CC Cream on the UK market. I’m counting the days until April 26th

Daniel Sandler Retexturising Face Primer

I don’t use a primer everyday because I think it’s just one step too many but if I need my makeup look good all day, I tend to use a primer.

This primer claims to fill in fine lines and pores, keep skin matte and help improve the longevity of make up. I can honestly say, it does everything it claims.

I only apply a thin layer on my T-Zone and at the sides of my nose because this is where I get oily and where my pores are enlarged. I found it completely masked my pores and helped my foundation to glide over the area without emphasising them. I purposely used the primer with a foundation which doesn’t last on my skin and can sometimes settle in odd places to see if it really did help with make-up longevity and it did. With the foundation in question, it only really lasts for about four hours on me before it starts to slip off but with this, it lasted for an amazing nine hours. I also used it as an eye primer and it really helps to so stop eyeshadow from creasing.

I think is one of the best primers I’ve tried because I’ve found a lot of them don’t really do anything but this one lives up to all of its claims and I think it will last for quite a while because you only need to use a tiny amount to get results.
