L'Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist

If I can find a way to make my makeup last longer I'm all for it. I have used primers, longer lasting foundations and setting sprays and I have to admit this is this best one I have used.

Many people have compared this to the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and I can see where they are coming from having used both products. The Urban Decay spray helps to make your makeup last longer but the only problem is the price. As I want my makeup to last all day, every day that I apply my makeup, I wanted to use this everyday but it can become expensive as it isn't a cheap product.

I was looking on the Boots website picking up a few products that I needed and noticed that L'Oréal had brought out this Infallible Fixing Mist. After reading the reviews and people comparing it to the Urban Decay spray I had to try it.

You have to shake the bottle because the powder sets at the bottom and there are 2 metal balls that help when shaking it up. I spray it in an 'X' and then a 'T' so that all of my face is covered after I have done my foundation and concealer and follow with a powder. By doing this, my makeup lasts all day and I don't have to worry about carrying a powder with me because my face looks oily.

I use this every time I do my makeup now and would highly recommend it to anyone who struggles with making their makeup last all day.

Have you tried any setting sprays?

The Beauty Blender

I still can't believe it's taken me so long to purchase this. After buying Holly hers for her birthday and listening to her good reviews, I knew it must be good. I finally gave in and bought it. I have to admit, I was surprised as to how small it is in the box and how much it grew once I'd run it under the tap. It comes in varies colours but I opted for the pink because why not?

I use this to blend out my foundation and concealer and I was really impressed as to how it managed to blend it out so well. I normally blend them both out with a brush as I hate using my fingers but the brush didn't always blend it fully so there was always either streaks left behind or the product gathered in the creases of my eyes. This helps to remove the 'cakey' look that certain foundations and concealers leave on my face. I only use a light foundation as I hate the feel of too much on my face for everyday and the blender helps to make this look really natural and pushes it in to my skin leaving a nice base. I previously used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer as it covered up blemishes really well but I have now started to use the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer as it's much more lightweight yet still covers certain blemishes on my face and brightens under my eyes. I haven't used it to blend out any other products yet so can't say anything about them but I'm sure it would blend them out just as good.

Overall, I would recommend this to any beauty lover as it really is a staple to have in your collection.

3 Things To Do For Valentine's Day

14th February is valentine's day but for some people it may just be another day in the year. This may have been sometime this weekend or may even be sometime this week. Below are 3 ideas that you could do for valentine's day.

1. Going out for a Meal
Many people will think about going for a meal with their partner as it is a nice way to be able to spend time together. Depending on where you go for a meal, it can be a reasonable price or if you feel like treating that special someone, feel free to go somewhere a little more expensive.

2. Movie Night and Takeaway
I know that most restaurants will more than likely be booked up by the organised people who decided to book in advance but for those of you who are not as prepared as the others, a movie night and takeaway is perfectly fine. There is no need to get all dressed up and feel uncomfortable because your eyes are bigger than your belly. You can sit on the sofa in your pyjamas with a blanket whilst watching a film of your choice. (This can be done with friends as a girly night for those of you who do not have a valentine.)

3. Go out for the Day
Why not go somewhere different? As it is today, most people will be working so why not do something this week when you can get the time off to go somewhere you haven't been before or maybe even the place your first met? 

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed

p.s. Happy Valentine's Day!

Benefit Real Cheeky Party Blush Palette

I was lucky enough to be gifted with this palette from Holly for my birthday. Holly is quite the blush lover as she was the one who bought me Rockateur last year. I ended up sending her a picture once I'd hit pan. I used it on a daily basis so I was really impressed to think it had taken me about 10 months to actually hit pan.

 As soon as I opened this I was in complete shock! I had been wanting to try some new blushes from Benefit after loving Rockateaur so this was perfect.

Dandelion is the one blush I haven't actually tried yet. I prefer more of a darker blush so this didn't shout 'try me' hence the reason I haven't tried it.

Rockateur! Such an amazing product! I highly recommend this! 
I won't go in to detail as I have already done a product review on this here.

Sugarbomb is different to any blush I've tried before due to there being 4 different colours. It adds a slight flush of colour to the cheeks without over doing it. It is a really natural blush with shimmer that gives a really nice glow and I would suit many different skin tones.

Hoola is a matte bronzer that can be used to add colour to the face as well as to contour your face. I'd heard many people rave about this so was really excited to try it. It didn't let me down as I used it to contour, add colour to my face as well as use it in the crease to give my eye a little more definition. Definitely a multi-use product!

Coralista is the one that I have used the most. Due to it being a coral-pink, it matches my skin tone and eye colour really well. The shimmer allows you to have a glow on the apples of your cheek as well as your cheek bones so there isn't a need for highlight (unless you like a really strong highlight) so can't be used on its own. Really impressed with this blush!

Watts up is another product I have seen many people talk about. I have to admit, I prefer a powder highlight simply because I hate applying products with my fingers and I feel as if I am going to rub away product I have already put on my face. You only need a small amount of this to give a lovely glow to the face but you have to blend this out well otherwise you can see exactly where you have dabbed it on.

They're Real mascara was the first product I bought from benefit and I was one of the people who really liked the mascara and got on well with it. I have now moved on the lash sensational and can't see myself changing now as I love it so much. However, with this mascara, I feel as though it doesn't match the lash sensational but it is still better than some of the other I have tried so I will still use it but I wouldn't repurchase it.

They're Real eye liner is another product I haven't actually tried as I don't wear it eye liner anyway. After having tried it about 3 years ago and have it go all over my eyelid (I couldn't apply it straight so it go bigger and bigger each day until I decided not to wear it altogether one day) I have never tried it again. However, I do like the idea of this as the rubber tip is flexible and will always remain a pointed tip so couldn't make my problem much easier and allow me to be more precise.

Overall, I really love this palette and think it is a great way to get you to try new products that you wouldn't normally go for. So for all the fellow blush lovers out there, try and get your hand on this if you can but if not, why not try their gift sets?
