Garnier Micellar water review

Hey guys! Today I am going to be reviewing the Garnier Micellar cleansing water. Micellar water is something I've only just invested in, and to be honest, I wish i got it sooner! This has been a absolute life saver for my skin. I haven't brought a single packet of makeup wipes since buying this, and my skin has been so much better off! I've wanted to invest in the well known Bioderma, but something about it has always held me back. I can't exactly compare this to bidoerma since I've never tried it before. But I'm very happy with this. 

The bottle is 400ml and apparently that is the equivalent of 200 uses. A little bit on a cotton pad goes a very long way. I have very sensitive eyes, and this doesn't seem to cause any problems with them. Micellar water makes it very easy to remove makeup, soothe and hydrate the face! You don't have to rinse after using it. But i would recommend toning as this can dry out your skin a little.

I f you have any blog post suggestions then please do leave them in the comments below and i will be sure to do them! Thats all from me today

Revlon lip butter review ♥

Hey guys! I promised myself that i would post frequently through out the Easter holidays, but some how, I didn't quite stick to that promise. Watching Akward (one of the best TV shows ever) has reminded me of my blog, Thank's Jenna. I've been struggling to find inspiration and blog post ideas. Not the best excuse but I'm going to try and post more often, because I really enjoy it! Also, it's 1am so what's better then posting?:) So without further or do, let's get started with this post! 

Revlon lip butters are by far one of my favourite lipsticks, well if that's what you want to call them. If a lipstick and a lip balm had a baby, this would be created! I love lipsticks that are more lip balm than lipstick!

The lip butters are so moisturising, I don't even have to apply lipbalm before applying a lip butter. I've been buying them for about 2 years or so, and I have even used up a few completely which is always a good sign. 

I have found a few of the lip butters to be a little bit gritty, but i actually like that about them. "Peach Parfait" for example, it's the prettiest colour I've discovered, the grit makes it really unique. The fact that that is one of my used up lip butters means that it obviously must be good!

The lip butters are decently pigmented, and stay on your lips for a while. But not as long as some lipsticks. I think thats purely because of the lip balminess to them! 

I have swatched two of my favourite shades! The top is Macaroon, and the bottom is Berry smoothie.

Over all, i am very happy with these, and i can see myself having all 10 soon. That's all from me!

A natural makeup look ♥

Wearing so much makeup can be a pain, sometimes it's nice to wear something a lot lighter!! I'm going to show you what makeup I would wear if I'm trying to look a little more natural and suttle, lets get started! 

So the first thing I'm going to be using is this BB cream from Maybeleine! This is my favourite BB cream, its light and moisturising, its easy to apply and stays put just about all day. Using a BB cream is better than using foundation sometimes, it's lots better for your skin. I apply this with my Real Techniques "Buffing brush"

 I like to keep my face looking matte, even though i don't have oily skin, this just helps set my BB cream, and stops it from budging through out the day. This is my favourite powder, I've repurchased this about 6 times, and i will carry on doing so! I apply this with my Real Techniques "Powder brush" 

Sticking to the natural look, I apply some benetint on the apples of my cheeks! You have to remember with this stuff, less is more! A little goes a long way. This gives the perfect healthy glow to my face. 

 I like to use this mac paint pot in "bare study" as a base for my eyeshadow! This is amazingly pigmented and creamy. I love this way more than any of the colour tattoos.

 I absolutely love the Naked 3 pallete! All of the colours are so girly and perfect! I'm going to be dusting "Limit" all over my lid, and then applying "Buzz" in my outer v, followed by "trick" in my crease!   
 I like to finish of the eye makeup with a little bit of mascara! This one is the Loreal Volume Million Lashes mascara in "Extra black" I've been loving loreal mascaras recently! It makes your lashes instantly curly and volumised, without curling them! This mascara is a must have! It's very build able, so you can wear as little as you like with it still looking natural, or if you like that dramatic look, then go ahead and apply a few more coats. 

To finish off the whole look, I apply this Loreal collection PRIVEE by Eva lipstick! This is so creamy and moisturising, for me, this is the perfect nude to wear all year round. 

Thats all for my "natural makeup look" if you try this out then send me a picture, i would love to see your versions of it! You don't have to be using the exact same items as what i use, I'm sure theres lots of cheaper versions!

Sleek Face Form palette in "light" Review ♡

Hello everyone! I've been using the Sleek Face Form palette for a while now and i can quite easily say that it's one of my favourite makeup items! 

First of all, the packaging is amazing! It reminds me a lot of Nars packaging which i love. It has a big mirror inside which makes it practical for traveling with. The palette is very affordable and great for the price. 

The bronzer, highlighter and blush are all super pigmented, amazing quality and not at all chalky or powdery. The bronzer is matte, and is said to be a dupe of Benefits "Hoola Bronzer" The blush is just like Nars "Orgasm" blush, its so pretty, it has gold undertones which i love!! The highlighter is lovely and shimmery, it doesn't draw attention to the wrong places and looks very flattering! 

Over all, I'm very happy with this little combo and i can see myself repurchasing this in the future!
