You’re Younique… The products tested!…

beauty

Over the last few years I’ve heard a lot about this brand and never had the chance to try it until now! I’ve sat back and watched people be told you can’t talk about it in beauty groups because everyone that genuinely loves it must be selling it! Shouldn’t we all just be supporters of other people and their genuine love for products as this may lead someone else to their lifetime favourite product one day?

First up we tried the Younique Mineral Touch foundation in shade Scarlet, £30 Available online here

The bottle comes with a dropper head for easy and minimal application, as you really don’t need much of it at all, to cover your entire face. It is a light formula which glides over the skin easily and it lasts all day with no dry patches! The colour was fantastic too as I tend to find even the lightest of shades leaves me matching my hair and glowing in an orangey fashion – but this one sits probably one of the closest ever shade to date!

I applied it with the super-soft Younique Liquid foundation brush, £25 – get yours here this one really is great as you don’t loose product into the bristles!

If this isn’t your kind of brush try the Younique foundation brush, £16 – shop it here!

Last up we have the Touch a la mode cream to powder luminizer, £30 in shade ‘Lustrous’ (rose gold)… This shade didn’t quite match up with me unfortunately and we found it best warm the stick up a little to get a smooth effortless sweep onto your chosen areas! It lasted several hours and gave a lovely subtle glow which you could build up!

Tackle those tangles with the New Alfa Italia Liscio Brush!…

Say goodbye to tangled hair and hello to the Best Styling Brush shortlist by Stylist, the Alfa Italia Liscio Detangling Brush (RRP £9.95).

The soft bristles will glide through your hair leaving it soft, shiny and smooth without dragging and pulling, making your brush an enjoyable experience everyday! So enjoyable in fact, our pals at Stylist have shortlisted it as the Best Styling Brush in the Best Beauty Stylist Awards 2017

Finished in a range of beautiful colours including gold, rose gold or white gold, this is the perfect handbag accessory and will look simply stunning on your dressing table, we love the brush, simply for our wet hair, as the bristles are stiff and slide straight through, however we’d love the brush to be a little more flexi in the bristles, just so that its softer on our scalp! But with thicker more luscious hair than me you would find this the perfect brush for you! 

Alfa Italia Liscio detangling brush (RRP £9.95) available online at www.alfaitaliapro.com

The must-have travel palette

Katie Price, the business woman, model, presenter, writer & mother, woman of all trades and successful at everything she puts her mind to, brings us her new venture into beauty in collaboration with TamBeauty.com, home to brands such as Makeup Revolution and I ♥ Makeup.

Here she brings us the Travel palette, created in the style of a tablet in its protective case, the cover (which has a large scale personal mirror on the interior) securely held in with elastic flush to the palette.

It contains a huge range of shadows plus a highlighter and two bronzers.

Versatile in shades the shadows come in mattes and shimmers across a huge range of natural nudes and browns, with a brighter spectrum as a plus side to the palette so you can play and create that darker, and brighter eye when you want to! The colours are so true to the shade you look at, and are pigmented perfectly to give you that poppier look!. The shadows are the perfect consistency to give a good blendable powder too!

The highlighter is one of any girls dreams, so shimmery and beautiful just in the case! Let alone when you’ve swatched it! I’m pretty pale and i love my highlight as bronzer doesn’t really work for me!

And wait! We forgot to tell you the amazing price for this palette! It’s just £20.

Available now, the Katie Price Travel Palette, £20, Tam Beauty.
