St.Tropez - Self Tan Bronzing Gel

Hey guys,
The Christmas parties are going to be starting up soon, and as I am fair skinned I like to fake tan. I treated myself to St.Tropez - Self Tan Bronzing Gel, which cost me £18.00 from my local salon. I had never tried St.Tropez before but was excited to try it out because of the great reviews I had heard!

Firstly this fake tan gel is very natural looking. I applied the gel with a fake tan glove and found that it applied evenly with no blotches or streaks. There is a slight smell with this gel but it is not unpleasant.The colour is not at all orangery but very sun kissed. It is easy to apply and overall is gives me a natural looking colour! One application of this tan lasted me around 3 days and then it started to wear off. I would repurchase this product and give it a 9/10. 

Have you tried this self tan?

Garnier Ultimate Beauty Oil

Hey dolls,

As there has been a change in weather, there has been an obvious change in my skin over the last couple of months. My skin went very dry and flaky. I wanted it to clear up as quick as possible and resulted in trying out a few new products. 

One of my favourite products was the Garnier Ultimate Beauty Oil, which is enriched with Argan, Macedonia , Rose and Almond. I sprayed it onto my face which left it a little slippery but after a while it sank into my skin. My skin felt lovely and moisturised with a lovely glow. It also has a lovely soft scent which smells divine . 

This product did the trick and within a couple of days my skin was back to normal. 

Have you tried this oil ?

Estée Lauder-Double wear foundation

 My favorite foundation ever! big statement, I know. I have been using Estée Lauder double wear foundation o and off over two years. I wear the colour Dawn and blend it in with my bourjois foundation in the shade 52 vanille. I am a total addict when it comes to this foundation I always end up going back to it. 

I love this foundation as it literally does stay all day what ever the weather be it raining or hot! I would say it is a build-able coverage and makes your skin look flawless.
I find the colour Dawn on my skin is ideal for summer but can look a little dark through the winter months so I tend to only use a little bit or go a shade lighter. This  product retails at £29.50

What's your favourite foundation ?

Benefit Brow Zings Review

Hey dolls,

For the last year or so I've been loving the look of a dark defined brow. Ive been using the benefit brow zings palette religiously. I often tint my eyebrows myself and then fill them in using this palette. This product includes:

  • pigmented wax for shaping
  • natural-shred powder for setting
  • discreet tweezers 
  • hand angle brush
  • mirror

A little goes a long way with this product and I often just use the wax alone to create more of a natural look.  I find this is such a good palette for a quick and easy brow look. It in now a staple in my makeup bag. I use the shade light, which is perfect for my complexion. The brushes last a long time which is also a bonus!

 This product retails at £24.50, in my opinion it is 100% worth the money.

What is your staple makeup product?
