For the past 5 years or so I’ve been pretty loyal to the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. It takes the shine off, it lasts all day and it’s a bargain! However, I’ve started to notice that my undereyes have been creasing so I need something a little stronger. For about 10 times the price of my trusty Rimmel powder, I picked up the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. It gets rave reviews on YouTube but is it worth the hefty price point?
A while ago I picked up a pack of two Nip + Fab masks. I haven’t tried anything from them in the past, and thought this was a great way to introduce myself to the brand. We know I love a face mask so I was eager to try them out! Today I’m talking about my impressions of the Nip + Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask, which definitely wasn’t what I expected to be.
Recently I’ve found PR packages few and far between. Whilst this may seem sad to some, this has been great for me. I’m trying to declutter my life and alongside this, I’ve been able to really try out new products for a reasonable period of time. At the back end of August REN Perfect Canvas* was launched, their first almost-makeup product amongst their fantastic skincare line.
Over the bank holiday weekend, I packed up and popped over the English channel for a fun weekend with a couple of my fave blogging ladies. Whilst the majority of my money was spent enjoying a few glasses of alcohol, responsibly of course, as beauty bloggers, we couldn’t let a trip to the continent pass us by without a trip to Sephora!
This is actually my final declutter post for a while. Most of what is left if going to take me a long time to decide what I want to keep and what I don’t (I have a lipstick problem, okay), and it’s no longer the summer. And with the cooler months drawing in I become a bit of a hoarder! So as we say goodbye to declutter posts, we’ll also say goodbye to my entire cream eyeshadow collection. Yes, the full thing!
A product I’ve been meaning to try for years is the Lush Mask of Magnaminty. I’ve heard amazing things about it over the years, but I don’t love spending money on Lush face masks as they need to be kept in the fridge and have a short use by date. I spotted a self-preserving formula of the Mask of Magnaminty around a month ago and I’ve been using it a couple of times a week ever since!
