There aren’t many Benefit products in my makeup bag which I use daily. However I did get a little bit excited when ‘Fake Up’ was released, so I took my Boots Advantage Card and got Fake Up in fair.
It’s a combination of a canceler and an eye cream. Yes, you’ve guessed right, it’s the best for under eye area.
A day dress was on my wish list but I usually go out shopping rather than surf the web. A couple of dresses did however catch my attention on the Baukjen website. Being encouraged by some lovely service during my styling session I’ve decided to order a dress. The style I’ve chosen was different from what I’d usually go for, but I really wanted something different to what I already have and less formal than most of my dresses.
Despite being a tea geek I do love a good cup of coffee now and then. After having a deeper look into all this ‘in home coffee business’ last autumn, I’ve decided to go with Nespresso. I didn’t buy a Nespresso coffee maker then, but I placed it on my wish list.
I was given a lovely new shinny Nespresso coffee machine for my birthday a couple of months ago, I’m one lucky girl. I’ve been using it every day since and I’m loving it.
Nespresso coffee machine itself is easy to use. Once again we can rely on Swiss precision.
One of the most know BIODERMA products is micellar water called Sensibio H2O. Despite many other brands introducing micellar water to their range of cleansing products, Sensibio H2O is still scoring top marks among bloggers and beauty writers. This is why I’ve decided to try it out and see if it’s going to impress me as much too.
It's been dull now for so long, so when the sun finally and kindly poked through the clouds on Sunday. I couldn't miss the opportunity! I went to the flower market in Columbia Road. I love this place; I go there often in spring, however it was the first time this year I've been. It’s only a small road, a short walk away from the Shoreditch High Street overground station, but it’s packed with a huge variety of cut flowers and lovely pot plants.
I usually choose quite a classic look when it comes to my nails, but when my favourite nail polish brand Essie launched new magnetic polishes, I had to give it a go.
I love essie because of their great colours, fantastic formula that drys quick and it lasts well.
The result on the nail is similar but not exactly what you may expect by looking at the advertisement. Maybe this is why I was partly disappointed with it at the start. I was expecting perfection from my perfect nail polish brand.
It creates an interesting result but I’d definitely recommend it for real manicure fans. It’s not the easiest thing to do if you’re a little bit clumsy and get your nail vanish everywhere while doing your nails. So here is what I think of the artistic funky version of Essie magnetic nail polish.
Have you ever wished you had a better imagination and are able to create trendy outfits? Do you ever wonder what’s in and out of season? Not sure what style really suits you? If it’s any consolation, you’re not alone.
You’re not alone because now you can have your very own session with a stylist from Baukjen; answering all your fashion dilemmas from the comfort of your own home.
Last month, Baukjen launched a new service offering you an online session with a stylist called “eStylist“. When I first read about it I got very excited. I think it’s a wonderful idea and a beautiful service to offer.
If you’re already a fan of BIODERMA you’ll be chuffed to know it’s now available in the UK.
Never heard of it? Let me enlighten you!
BIODERMA is an extremely popular pharmacy cosmetic brand on the continent and has also a lot of fans in the UK.
BIODERMA believes that temporary relief alone is not sufficient in treating most skin problems, therefore it offers corrective and holistic solutions for each skin type. With this belief, over the years the brand developed some amazing products that were never seen before, which later became cult beauty products.
BIODERMA was the first brand to introduce such innovations as:
To make it all nice and easy for you, here is everything we covered with Simon Mortimer when it comes to cosmetics and some of the ingredients used in them.
If you’re a regular visitor you will know about the series of posts I’ve created with a huge amount of help from an industry expert Simon.
If you’re new to my page and you’re interested in cosmetics and what they’re made of, I’d recommend you have a read through what Simon says as even I found it very interesting and surprising at times. Enjoy.
All the things that caught my eye but haven’t made it to the post…yet.
- Benefit Cosmetics have just launched a new concealer called FakeUP. I may not be WOW’ed by all of Benefit’s products, but this looks really good. It’s a combination of a concealer and eye cream in one. I think it’s great for touch ups during the day, when your under eye area starts to look a bit dryish. I’ve treated myself to one of them with my awesome Boots Advantage Card points and I shall review it in full soon.
I’m a bb cream addict and that’s a fact! I’m constantly thriving to achieve a smooth and even complexion that doesn’t show that there’s a product enhancing its appearance. I’ve tried quite a few different bb creams now. Some I thought were better than others. There’s quite a selection available on the market at the moment. If you haven’t noticed yet, theres kinda a theme for bb creams at the moment. No surprise then that I simply couldn’t resist and had to try the new Dior’s BB Cream from their Diorskin Nude range.
