Tried and Tested | The Nars Velvet Matte Foundation Stick

2017 will have been the year when I kept founding my favourite foundation ever. It’s quite unusual for me because for the longest time I was struggling to find a foundation that I liked, never mind one that I loved. But this year I found a bunch that I really enjoy.

It all started in January when I included the YSL le teint encre de peau foundation in my top 5 beauty products of 2016. Then, this spring I talked to you about the Shiseido Synchro Skin and Synchro Skin Glow foundations that were even better for a natural or luminous finish.

Finally this autumn I stumbled upon the new Nars stick foundation, the Velvet Matte Foundation*. This is the reason I’m here again, talking about yet another ‘best foundation I’ve tried. (more…)

Lush Diary #50 | Bewitched | Halloween Collection

We’re on our way to Christmas now (we can even say the c-word) and though Halloween’s season’s technically over, I’ve still got one bath bomb from the Halloween Lush collection to talk to you about. I’m a little bit late but when I last checked, the collection was still available (at least online.)

This last Halloween bath bomb of the year is a bubble bar called Bewitched*. (more…)

Lush Diary #49 | Pink Pumpkin | Halloween Collection

I’m a little bit late to still be talking about halloween products, but seeing as they’re still available on the Lush website, and probably in shops too, I take the little time I have left to tell you how good they are.

As I was saying in my overview of the Lush Halloween collection, I fell head over heels in love with Sparkly Pumpkin (the orange version of Pink Pumpkin) and that’s why I was so excited to try Pink Pumpkin*. (more…)

The New Nutritious Micro-Algae Range from Estée Lauder

I’ve been using the latest Estée Lauder skincare range for a few weeks now, it’s called Nutritious Micro-Algae. These products are destined for oily and problem prone skin and are meant to purify and balance the skin.

This range is made with three algaes, spirulina, chlorella, and sugar kelp, which explains the name. It contains a cleansing bar, a cleansing jelly, a toner and a hydrating lotion.

I really like the design of this range and judging by the press release, it seemed to be the right one for my skin type. Now that I’ve used them for a while, I can tell you that three of the product will remain in my routine but one didn’t work for my skin. (more…)

Lush Diary #48 | Ectoplasm | Halloween Collection

As promised on my instagram last weekend, I’m here to talk about something that’s doubly new from Lush. This bath bomb is a new type of bath bomb, it’s a jelly bomb, and it’s also a new member of the Halloween Lush family.

This Jelly bath Bomb from the Halloween collection is called Ectoplasm*. (more…)
