Review: Catrice Even Skin Tone Foundation

DSCN0761

Hi Everyone!

I’m back again with a foundation review , So I think everyone who reads my blog will know I have a mixture of different foundations and I use all of them , but my all time favourite is the L’Oreal infallible matte foundation and has been now for a long time. I haven’t actually went out and purchased a new foundation since then , I have been buying backups , but when I seen the Even Skin Tone foundation in my local pharmacy at the price of 8.49 , I pounced on it.

I’m a huge fan of inexpensive products , I’m a student and I can’t afford to pay out for high end products all the time , so I usually stick to the drugstore stuff until it gets to a special occasion like a birthday or Christmas, so this foundation was right up my street.Lets get on with the review.

Coverage:

The coverage of this foundation is medium to buildable , on days where I don’t want a heavy coverage with the L’oreal infallible matte foundation , I tend to stick to this.

Texture:

This is probably the hardest thing for me to describe, its liquidy but not runny , its thick but also feels thin , its basically everything but looks perfect on the skin!

Smell:

The only thing I hated with this foundation is the smell , it stinks! its like a chemically smell , but I noticed with most of Catrices foundations they have that distinct smell , so maybe Catrice thinks its gorgeous and doesn’t want to change it , who knows?

Durability 

So I put this foundation on at around 7;30 in the morning ( hurray for early morning classes!) and I find that it lasts around 5/6 hours , its not long wearing but I do tend to touch my face throughout the day.

If you’re looking for a foundation that is going to last you through the day, unfortunately this isn’t going to be the one , it will start to wear off on places you tend to get oily throughout the day . If you’re looking for a foundation that wont look cakey and wont be a mask on your face , this is your foundation. It’s very natural on the skin and makes it appear as its just your own skin but better.

I hope you enjoyed this little review, if there are any other products you would like me to review feel free to drop them below and I’ll take a little look!

Review: Primark Sultry Lashes

image (4)

Hi everyone

Today I thought I would review the Primark ( Penneys for us in Ireland) Lashes in the style “Sultry” , These are my go to lashes for either a, going out dramatic look or an everyday look that I want to add that little bit more to. I have gone through so many pairs of these its insane , so I thought I would do a little review for people who are hesitant on picking them up.

The sultry lashes go for a very budget friendly €1.50 ( I think its £1 in the UK. ) these lashes are not unlike the Ardell Whispies and for the price , you can’t complain. I usually don’t like to hold onto these lashes after the second use because I feel like I’ve gotten my wear out of them. I feel the same with the ardell whispies but to each their own.

I tend to go through lashes quite frequently so I don’t like buying expensive lashes that will end up in the bin after a second use, so these lashes are perfect for me because i don’t feel guilty about binning them after a night out!

These lashes are sooo fluffy and so light that they are extremely easy to apply. I used to suck at applying false lashes but these lashes make it a little more easier since they aren’t heavy. Depending on your eye shape you might need to cut them to shape your eyes , but it really isn’t too hard , just measure them up and take note on where to cut the lashes , you should always cut from the outside since you want to keep the lashes looking natural as possible.

I would recommend these lashes to anyone whos starting out with makeup or people who aren’t quite 100% confident in applying falsies , these lashes are the perfect price and size to fiddle with and practice on and you’ll be a pro at applying lashes by the end of it all!

I hope you enjoyed this little review and found it somewhat helpful. If you have tried these lashes or any of primarks lashes , comment below and tell me what you think of them!

Vanity Tour 2015

12049001_977963672265056_1646834257_n

Hi Everyone!

So I decided to add in a little something different to the posts that I normally do and have opted to show you my vanity through video. I thought it was a quicker and easier way to show you my vanity and was so much fun to film. I love the idea of starting my own youtube channel so I decided why not make a vanity tour my first video? I’ll list below where I have gotten everything from,

Malm Dressing Table- Ikea

Brush Holders- Ikea ( originally candle holders and flower pots)

Silver candle holder – Ikea

Containers – Ikea

Acrylic storage – I got this from a little discount store in my area  for around 20 euro but I’m sure you can find other storage like this on amazon or ebay.

Mirrored Light – boots

I am currently waiting to get some hollywood lights and a big old mirror up but wanted to get this version of my vanity up first because I was too excited and I also wanted to see how the process would look like getting everything ready and sorted. I hope you enjoyed this rather differnet post and don’t forget to thumbs up the video!! It would mean a lot!

I know the quality isn’t superb I’m still getting used to some things but I’m hoping i’ll get better at editing and all that jazz later on!It literally looks like I filmed on a potato but I’m sure I’ll be A OK once I have my better camera on me!
