We all know that I’m a full coverage queen. Would you ever want to wear a foundation for twenty-four hours straight? Probably not. Do I love the idea of my foundation looking flawless and incredible for such a long period of time? Obviously, without a doubt! After watching NikkieTutorials’ video of her wearing the Becca 24 Hour Ultimate Coverage Foundation for an entire day, I instantly knew I needed to test the foundation out myself. She, like me, opts for a matte finish to her foundation and while I’m sure her hella expensive primer helped her to look as flawless as she did after such a long period of time, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it..
Historically and in all honesty, my skin has never been amazing, and I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir in regards to skincare anyway. I’d always put my awful skin – read spotty, oily, uneven mess of a face – down to teenage hormones and puberty, before I realised that I’ve never been ‘the best’ at sticking to a skincare routine long enough for it to actually make any difference. Note to self – a face mask once every three weeks does not constitute a routine and will not fix all of your skincare woes, but my lesson has now well and truly been learnt. At the beginning of the year, I made it my New Year’s Resolution to create a skincare routine and ensure I implemented it every night, and along the way, I’ve discovered some great products that have made my skincare struggles almost nonexistent..
I feel like I haven’t written a ‘first impressions’ post in about a million years, but I actually earned some money this month, hallelujah, and decided to treat myself! Having been unemployed and ridiculously poor for the last few months, I’ve picked up very few new makeup pieces in that time because, priorities – so justifiably, I picked up a few more than I probably should have when payday finally came around, including some new in high-end pieces that I’ve been dying to try..
I, like every other beauty blogger in the entire world, was super excited when Revolution Pro was first released. Although not my absolute favourite brand, Revolution has always been a brand I’ve loved and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on at least some of their new releases. I’m a drugstore gal through and through, I love a good beauty bargain, and this entire range is exactly that, with the majority coming in under £10, with quality that tends to be just as good, if not better, than most high-end products I’ve tried..
Too Faced is a brand that everyone seems to be obsessed with, a brand you rarely read anything bad about online, a brand that I had been absolutely dying to try as a result. While I am a drugstore gal through and through, I do enjoy seeing whether high-end brands are worth the hype, or if there are drugstore dupes that work just as well. You can imagine my excitement when I spotted the Too Faced Primed and Poreless Primer in TK Maxx for £4.99..
