Weekend Wants

1| philosophy's purity cleanser 2|Louise Young Palette 3|Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation 4|Real Techniques Stippling Brush
Firstly I've been looking everywhere for this cleanser but really don't want to pay postage. Next is the Louise Young palette which  looks amazing and is the right colours I tend to use alot. Another item I've wanted for months is the skin base foundation which I would by online as its £25 but I dont know my right shade to purchase. Friday I end up buying the real techniques core brushes which are really good but I want there stippling brush, I'm currently using a elf stippling brush, but after feeling how nice real techniques brushes are I want I want them all.

17 Miracle Matte Foundation

Last week while looking in Boots at the make up I saw this new foundation which was on offer at £4.99 instead of £5.99. Thought I'd try it as Ive never got on with 'drugstore' foundation. The colour is a pretty good match slightly dark than my skin tone but nothing I wouldn't leave the house wearing. The coverage is medium and does what it says at controlling oil but doesn't last all day so touch ups is needed. Overall its worth the price and I'll be using it as one of my back ups.

Make Up Academy Lipstick Shade 11

I don't really owned that many lipsticks so while shopping I brought a few from MUA at superdrug although the superdrug near me isn't stocked well. I love this shade it's different from the ones I have already as I tend to buy pale pink whereas this is a deeper natural shape with a hint of shimmer.And for only £1 there a bargin even if they last half an hour. Most of the shades don't have any names this is shade 11, I've just been online and they are selling new lipsticks with names now which I would buy online but postage is more than the actual lipstick

Estee LauderDouble Wear Maximum Cover Makeup foundation £26.50

While in Birmingham for uni I went into Debenhams to re-purchase my usual foundation Estee Lauder Doubler wear and asked for a sample of the maximum. I tried it straight away when I got home and couldn't believe how it blended onto my skin and the coverage is amazing. Estee Lauder is the only foundation I've found that is a match to my skin. After these results I've since exchange my normal double wear for this, its the same price and you dont need as much as the coverage is amazing. The foundation does last but I need to purchase a powder to set it if anyone can recommend any?

Skin Care Update

bareMinerals Deep Cleansing Foam

Brought this cleanser to use with Clarisonic as I feel I needed a foaming cleanser to get a deep clean. I've found with my skin once it gets use of a product I begin to break out, so to keep it under control I've been using 3/4 cleansers and using them every other day and it seems to be working. I've read before your skin needs to get used of a product before it works effectively but this seems to be the opposite for me. Overall this cleanser is really good and leaves my skin feeling really fresh. Its only £12.75. I would recommend it for anyone with combination skin.

Skin Care Update

Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System
Brought my clarisonic the beginning of Janurary and wanted to give it few months before telling you about it. for atleats 3 weeks of using it morning and evening it made my skin worse as in spots but the texture of my skin felt so soft and had a nice feel to it. After reading various comments I've decided to only use it on a evening as it removes make up so well. I always remove my make up before using it with a cleanser and I can't believe how much it removes. I'm still battling with my skin but the texture much better and the main reason of my blogging was the price I brought mine off ebay for buy it now from a seller in America but even with the postage it was cheaper than anywhere in the UK and it came within a week. Although I had to buy a adaper which was £1.99 but its a huge saving if you really want one in came package in the box with a small cleanser. I paid £69.64 plus £15.13 and the seller still is selling heres the link

 Picked up like shimmer me blush while in Asda today, don't think I've brought any of thier make up before. This caught my eye as its a copy of the Benefit shimmer brick but at less of the price at £4.50, they come in various shades. To be honest for the a mount of times I'll use it because glitter isn't everyday item, its ok not much colour comes out only glitter unless you push the brush into it

Haven't posted from a while as I have been busy with uni work which I hand in Friday plus I wanted to save up some recent buys to show you. Currently at uni I'm in my second year and at the moment were choosing our pathway option which is such a big decision to make, in the end I've choose to do a Communication pathway which is like trend forecasting and branding.
