Everyone is lusting after L’oreal Eau de Teint, are you too?

20131201_170414 This may seem like a repetitive post because I’m sure you all have heard of L’oreal’s new foundation and read some great reviews on it. I wanted to add my two cents worth because this really is one of the nicest foundations I’ve ever tried. It’s one I liked straight away from the first application. Continue reading

The Daily Face #4

IMG_6781

It’s been a long time since I did a face of the day post. I really like reading these posts on other people’s blogs so I thought I’d get back into the swing of things. Who doesn’t love an aul vain selfie photo anyway?! *nervous laugh*  The products I used were so simple to use and the look took less than five minutes. The L’oreal Eau De Teint foundation (shade porcelain) is an ABSOLUTE dream to use. I swear to god it’s fabulous and even though my skin is a tad dryer at the minute, it still applies pretty well. Another product that’s pimpsy to use is Bourjois’ cream blusher in 002. It’s a subtle peach shade that can be used lightly or built up to create a deeper blush. On the eyes, is Clinique’s eyeshadow quad and a brown superfine eyebrow pencil. Strawberry fudge and teddy bear are two of my all time favourite eyeshadows. They compliment each other so well. Andrea from Your Beauty is a huge fan of Clinique’s eyeshadows! Continue reading

Dr.Jart+ BB Cream

I’ve been testing out Dr.Jart’s Black Label Detox Beauty Balm for the past few weeks. I’ve been looking for something for everyday as I don’t like using foundation all the time. I rarely wear much make-up during the day but its annoying when a few blemishes crop up or my face looks tired or dull! A lovely assistant in Sephora helped me choose this one as it suited my colouring (pale).

This BB cream is working out great for me for a number of different reasons. It’s more than just make-up. Often, if I wear make-up numerous days in a row, my face will break out. This BB cream contains botanical actives to purify and calm the skin. It has green tea, aloe vera, arbutin and caviar extract all packed in that all work to brighten the skin and protect against pollutants. Since using this, I’ve had no major breakouts and my skin tone has actually improved.

It’s easy to use and blends like a dream. The pump action means you get the exact amount of product needed. I just use my fingertips to apply it to a soft dewy finish. The photo above shows it blended on my arm.I tend to use a moisturiser under this, because my skin would dry out otherwise. But Dr.Jart’s BB can be used alone. I guess it depends on your skin type.

The most attractive thing for me is the added SPF 25. My skin is quite fair, although getting a bit less so since I’ve moved to New York. But its great not having to worry about buying sunscreen separately and I like the fact its a high SPF compared to a lot of moisturisers.

I’m definately gonna continue to use this, not sure if I’ll repurchase. There are so many more BB creams out there to try! I bought my Dr. Jart+ in Sephora for $36 and I know Boots stock some Dr. Jart+ also, not sure if it is the Black Label though. Happy BBing everyone!
