Revlon ColorStay Foundation | Combination/Oily Skin

Think it's about time I put another post up, don't you?

For ages now, I have been searching for a foundation that suits my skin type, whether it be drugstore or high-end. I suffer from combination skin, which can really ruin the way my foundation sits on my skin. I often found myself re-applying powder to my skin to mattify it, and I also found my foundation coming off my face. For my ball I wanted a good foundation that would last all night, have a low SPF for photographs and that sat nicely on my skin. This is when I discovered Revlon ColorStay Foundation. 

This foundation can be found HERE.
At first I thought that the foundation bottle was a little small and that the foundation wasn't going to last me a while, however I was shocked to find that I only needed a little bit! The foundation sat lovely on my skin, and it didn't budge throughout the whole day. Before I discovered this foundation, I used to pack on as much powder as I could to ensure that the foundation was matte the whole day. With this foundation, I didn't need to retouch my powder at all. I am so impressed with this foundation it will be a definite re-purchase! The foundation should have been £12.49, but at the moment there is a discount and I got it for £9.49... Bargain!

What foundation is your favourite at the moment?

LUSH | Ickle Baby Bot

Hello guys!

So I took a trip to Manchester last Wednesday, and of course I had to make a trip into the beloved LUSH shop.

For christmas, I bought my friend the 'Ickle Baby Bot' and even though it states it is for babies, I couldn't resist going back to Manchester and buying one for myself.

I deeply love anything with a lavender scent, and when I put this into the bath this is what I could smell straight away. If it is good enough for  baby, then it sure is good enough for me! My water turned a slight blue colour which captured all of the lavender smell and placed it right on my skin. Like I find with all LUSH products, I never have to use a moisturiser because they moisturise my skin enough.

This product also guaranteed a good nights sleep, and with the the help if the lavender in the product this was done. The following day I could still smell the lavender on my skin, but it did wear off throughout the day. I didn't mind this at all however, because I knew it was going to come off in the shower that night anyway.

At a price of £1.95 I do not think this product is expensive at all, and it is definitely worth the money. You can find this product HERE
