Estée Lauder double wear foudation

FullSizeRender 3

This is the most amazing foundation i have ever tried. Recently i have been on the hunt to find a new foundation to suit my skin and one that is durable throughout the day. I’ve tried a few drug stores like maybelline and witch but they just down quite do it for me. I used to swear by the no7 beautifully matt foundation however my mum started to notice how the colour wasn’t matching my neck therefore i had a line. I really HATE having a foundation line, it bugs me so much. So i went back and got my colour re tested and it came back with the same colour – calico. So this is where my hunt started, i never thought i would fall for a high end foundation, i always thought whats the point? it only costs so much more, what could it possibly do that is better?

Well, i was so wrong. I have been using this foundation for a few weeks now and i love it. It glides beautifully on your skin and stays on throughout the day – exactly what i was looking for. I went into boots where a lovely lady sat me down to do a colour test. we swatched some shades on my neck and looked at what colour suited me best, she gave me two samples and told me to use both and see which tone i preferred more, one was more pale and one was a little more tanned but both shades suited the colour of my neck fine. she told me it was totally what i preferred in the light. I took these samples home and they lasted me about 2 and a half weeks… which was brilliant a little goes a long way.

This foundation is quite pricey however you only need a little and it last ages as i found with the samples. So  purchased the full size product which costs £31. I can assure you this is no normal foundation it claims to be non transferring, suitable for all skin types, 15 hours staying power, non colour changing or smudging, flawless no matter what heat or humidity, light weight and comfortable. Now that is a lot to live up to. I would say that i agree with everything they claim (apart from 15 hours staying power because i haven’t worn it for that period of time) because this foundation feels and looks flawless all day long. The thing i am most impressed with is the fact that it doesn’t transfer on to clothes. The semi – matt finish makes your skin look so natural but at the same time evens out all the unwanted oil from your pores. Its a medium coverage that is very buildable. It has spf 10 to protect your skin in the sun. With 44 shades to choose from your sure to find the shade which is perfect for you, i wear the shade 1co shell, this suits my skin absolutely amazing.

So this is an honest review of what i thought of the Estée Lauder double wear foundation. Hope you enjoyed reading! don’t forget to like and comment below.

January favourites

I know it’s a little late for January favourites as we are half way through February (which i can not believe) but i thought i would do this as i got a lot of new things to try from Christmas which i have loved throughout January!

My first favourite is the tanya burr liquid highlight, i really love the formula of this product because it doesn’t feel heavy and it just adds a subtle glow which i love! if you want more of a intense highlight i would recommend using a powder highlight on top (i have been using the tanya burr  powder highlight from the beautifully defined pallet). This liquid highlight is really beautiful and it’s really affordable as well.

My second favourite is the Kiko super gloss in the shade 106, normally I’m not the lip gloss kind of person, they are normally to sticky or quite a horrible texture but this lip gloss is none of that instead its’s smooth, silky  and creamy. The shade of this is like a pink shimmer and it goes with most make up looks. This brand is so affordable and their products are so good quality, it’s got to be one of my top favourite make up brands.

My next favourite is the Rimmel lasting finish concealer, i literally LOVE this product because it’s so high coverage and it’s not clingy. It is really long lasting and very durable which i find is a main feature i want in a concealer. I use this under my eyes, in the centre of my nose, on my chin and in between my eye brows because i use this to highlight with. I tend to get the shade 002 ivory which is perfect for my skin tone (for highlight). I normally use the real techniques contour brush to blend this concealer.

My fourth favourite is the Kiko smart eyeshadow pallet in the shade ’02 warm shades for an exotic look’. I really like the formula of these eyeshadow because they leave hardly any fall out and their pigmentation with out a primer is incredible in my opinion. My most used shades are 02,03,05,06,07 these shadows are just so gorgeous. This pallet is also perfect for traveling because its compact and slim, i recently took this on holiday and it was just the right size and just the right amount of shades.

And then the next favourite is the Zoella diffuser in the sent my eden. I received this for Christmas from my parents and the sent is amazing. I really like this because the smell is so strong and it fills the room, usually diffusers are quite weak in scent but this is honestly the best diffuser. This product is really affordable as well and the packaging is the nicest thing.

Moving onto Fragrance i’ve really been loving the Zoella beauty sweet inspirations body mist, this has such a lovely scent. I haven’t stopped spraying it all the way through January because it’s very light and sweet. I can honestly say that whenever I’ve gone to pick up a a perfume/body spray i have just kept reaching for this one as it is so wearable on a daily basis.

My next favourite skin care product is the formula daily care cleansing face wash. I really like this product because it really makes you skin feel smooth and fresh. It has really improved the look of my skin and the appearance of spots. After using this product i just use a night cream to moisturise my skin. You can buy this from M&S.

My casual go to make up

IMG_1971

I love wearing make up and trying out different products but this is just a few items which I use most days. Some of these products I mentioned in my ‘top ten things I’ve been loving right now’ post which i did a couple of weeks ago. This make up look is really easy to recreate and most of the products used a high street brands.

Make up brushes: I have quite a few make up brushes, probably a lot more than I need! I have a variety of different brands all for different uses. Here are the ones I use all the time:

  • Real Techniques buffing brush, this brush comes in the real techniques core collection set which you can buy from Boots and Superdrug for £20.99.
  • Real Techniques contour brush, this is also included in the core collection set.
  • No7 retractable brush, I’m not sure that they actually do this brush any more but you can get one quite similar by No7 it’s £15.00 from Boots.
  • Revolution ultra pointed crease brush, this copper brush is from Superdrug for £5.99.
  • Eco tools blending and bronzing brush, this is from Superdrug for £9.99.

Face: I love trying out new face products but I always seem to go back to the same ones I always use in the end. I think that when it comes doing the ‘ base ‘ of your make up you should use good quality products because that is what is sitting directly on your skin, this is what i use:

  • No7 baeutifully matte light foundation in the shade warm beige or calico, you can by this at Boots for £14.50.
  • Collection primed and ready, this is from Superdrug or boots and it costs £4.99.
  • No7 instant radiance concealer, this is from Boots for £13.50.

Cheeks: It’s important to get your cheeks right because you don’t want them to look over bronzed or blushed. Bronzers, blushers and highlights are such a personal thing and you just need to find the best one for you! here are the ones i use:

  • Revolution ultra bronze, this is from Superdrug and costs only £3.00.
  • Kiko infinity+ eye shadow, although this is an eye shadow it makes a great highlight you can buy it from the Kiko store for £5.90.
  • Blushing hearts triple baked blusher in the shade peachy keen heart, this is from Superdrug for £4.99.

Eyes: I love testing out new eye looks and dressing my eyes up for different occasions. I think that the eyes transform the whole make up look and really finish it off. My eye make up is my favourite thing to to do out of my whole make up because there is so much you can test and try. here are a few products i use on my eyes:

  • Clarins Lisse minute base comblante, you can get this from Clarins store or amazon this is actually a full face primer but i prefer to use it just on the eyes as an eye primer It’s £26.50.
  • Collection work the colour eye shadow pencil in the shade hot chocolate, you can get this from Boots for about  £3.19.
  • Kiko eye shadow in 122 (mat beaver brown) and 134 (pearly coca), you can get these from the Kiko store for £2.90.
  • Benefit They’re real mascara, you can get this from benefit store for £19.50.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the products that i use for my casual make up look, i hope this have given you some tips and maybe some new products to try!
