First up The Base: Milk Aquarelle Liquid Foundation in Coconut Milk Parfait, €53 (around £46) SHOP IT HERE This foundation is so dreamy… it sits in a frosted glass bottle arriving within a beautifully illustrated paper tube; and the best thing about it? You need the smallest amount ever! It glides over your skin without the need of a primer and a few dabs can cover your face entirely… of course if you want heavier coverage too this one is great for building up in the areas you need it, too!

It contains some fabulous skin protection too with detoxyl an anti-pollution ingredient keeping the city smog at bay, bamboo for repair and softening shea butter. In addition it contains panthenol which enables the ingredients to penetrate the skin, assisting with hydration and it’s a pro vitamin of B5 – stimulating cell regeneration!

All in all it’s pretty fabulous… it stays on our skin all day with no patching or dryness! Taking on all of the other cosmetics with ease making application of your morning makeup quick and easy!

It’s eye time… that you take notice of rougebunnyrouge’s endless eye collections… they have numerous products for every single look! Above we have Pristine Light Corrective eye primer, €35 (around £30.50) SHOP IT HERE Applied with the sponge applicator on the tube tip, you need a small squeeze to give a base ideal for RBR’s glitter pigments, to hold them in place and to mask any blemishes too!

For precision cut eyeliner, trust in Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Nocturnal Ink Satin Eyeliner, €28 (around £24.50) SHOP IT HERE It has an ultra–fine brush tip, allowing ultra skinny cat eye flicks, and a fuller lash line. The liner will not rub off how ever much you try, yet as soon as you go to remove it at the end of the night, it comes off straight-away! Just what you want smudge-proof products, that remove with ease at the end of the night!

The Amplitute big lash mascara, €29 (around (£25) SHOP IT HERE is surprisingly volume inducing and gives the sense of extreme length also! Initially from the non clumpy / thick texture on the brush I thought this wouldn’t do much, but it goes a long way; and although it isn’t waterproof – it takes a lot of moisture and more than rain on your face to budge it! Meaning no streaming lines down your face! The wax that makes up the formula, is super nourishing on your lashes too – so you get to look great and treat your eyes too!

The Long Lasting Duo Cream Eyeshadow, €42 (around £37) – shown here in Gossamer Wing SHOP IT HERE is your everyday essential product. With a nude cream – semi matte eyeshadow and a light golden coffee shade with shimmer (It’s packed full of RBR glitter pigments – which without doubt you should pick up in EVERY colour if you can! )- this is the every occasion go to nude! The formula is crease free and gives a vision of smooth & renewed skin. RBR added Para Cress Flower Extract to stimulate natural skin lifting capabilities and Coffee Extract to increase collagen and elastin production, while enhancing your natural skin defences. (A Serious must-buy)

Glossier… Worth the hype?

beauty

It’s 2018 and I have officially dived head first into the world of acids & how they can really help with our skin! Bring along one of the newest most talked about products & brands… Glossier

This year they launched Glossier Solution and they claim to revamp your skin in just four weeks… In a poll by Glossier‘s daily Solution Users 3 our of 4 people stated that

  • After 24 hours – Skin felt cleaner & softer.
  • After 1 Week – Skin looked smoother, brighter and clearer
  • After 2 Weeks pores looked smaller and skin looked glowy
  • After 3 weeks – pores were unclogged and there was reduced redness and more even skin.

So we had to try it – especially after living for so long with massive pores on my face!!

Solution works by removing the dead skin cells that blocks our pores & penetrates deep into each individual one. Using a variety of Acids within the Solution such as Glycolic / Lactic / Citric & Salicylic Acid* – all chemical exfoliants ex the citric which modified the skins pH levels! (Please note as we’ve previously stated we are new to acids and we recommend EVERYONE checks out the products containing acids carefully and makes sure they will suit their skin before applying anything directly to your skin!) [I rely on other beauty boss’ that are in the know more-so about these things like Caroline Hirons & Alessandra Steinherr – reading and watching absolutely everything of theirs!]

We gave it a go and we are happy with our results so far! After using the product for 4-6 weeks we had the initial tingling sensation on our first week, whilst using every other day – a short lived mild tingle sensation leaving us with immediately noticeable smoother skin!

Over weeks two to four we noticed an array of changes such as smoother skin for longer, my smaller pores vanishing and the largest ones decreasing in size… it also has a positive effect on my old chicken pox scars and it’s helping them reduce down a little too!

Beat in mind whilst using this product – don’t use it on your microbladed or semi-permanent brows! It will fade the pigment a lot quicker meaning you’ll be due a top up much quicker than anticipated … I wouldn’t want to put that well spent money down the drain 😅

Another thing to consider is the time of day when applying the product! If you are heading out I’d recommend not using it in the morning! Solution makes your skin even more sensitive to the sun and glossier recommend that you wear factor 50 if heading out after application! – due to this as I have very fair skin I use it at night as part of my routine, after an initial cleanse whilst showering *no soap*, I apply Solution, then apply my fave serum finishing with a layer of a gentle colloidal oatmeal moisturiser from Cuderm or of I’m heading out for the evening I apply a blend of Neutrogena’s #HydroBoost Serum blended with the HydroBoost Water Gel as it contains Hyuralonic Acid which effortlessly hydrated my skin and creates a perfect base for my makeup!

The packaging really targets the teen market and is packaged to be totally Glossier from outer postal box to final product! We love the push down dispenser at the top too!

Overall thoughts… Worth the hype of it works for you!!
