I wanted to let you know about this beautiful bronze universal, by Chanel.
It’s the first Chanel product that I’ve ever bought, and I got it in Duty Free around 6 months ago (and was cringing that I’d just spent around £30 on a bronzer).
However, I would definitely say that it is worth it. The amount of people who have asked me what bronzer I am using (or where I have been on holiday) was flattering.
I apply this bronzer with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush, due to it being a cream product, but I would usually apply bronzer with a powder brush.
It gives you the gorgeous glow, and can be worn alone, on top of, or under foundation. It’s a great alternative to fake tan, without the awful smell and worry of patches.
So, I would definitely recommend this product who someone who loves to look like a bronzed goddess!
Following on from my ‘Best Mascara’ post, I thought I would talk about another one of my favourites – a cleanser.
For years, I just used any old makeup wipes that I could find, somehow thinking that they were more convenient than a cleanser. Oh, I was wrong.
This is the one that I use:
It’s the ‘No7 Soft and Soothed Gentle Cleanser.’
It retails for £8 on Boots, and I have gone through 3 whole bottles.
I firstly rub some into my face, and rinse that off with warm water. Then, I take a bit more and focus on taking my eye makeup off. So, you don’t have to go out and buy a separate eye makeup remover.
I thought that, as a treat, I would try the Liz Earle ‘Cleanse and Polish,’ which costs around £14.50. This doesn’t seem too much more than the No7 one. However, it only lasted me around 2-3 months, whereas the ‘Soft and Soothed’ lasts around 6 months with daily use.
So, if you’re wanting a new cleanser, look no further…
This may seem like a very bold statement, but I wanted to write about a mascara that I have now been using for over a yearthat I got from the high street/drugstore.
It’s the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara!
This may not come as a shock to many of you, as it is a much loved mascara in the world of beauty. But, it deserves of all of the praise it gets.
I only realised my love for it when I started using a new mascara (Maybelline ‘Push Up’ FYI), which was horrible and clumpy and when I came home after a long day, I had black circles under my eyes – making me look like a panda.
Firstly, the wand: it’s thick, curved and plastic. It evenly distributes the product and is curved to the shape of your eye, making application much more easy for clumsy people like me.
The formula: even though I don’t buy the waterproof version (as I struggle to remove it) it always stays in place all day, without fail. It never leaves horrible black smudges around your eyes.
One of the only more expensive mascaras that I have tried is the Benefit ‘Roller Lash,’ which I also loved. I think that this is the most similar mascara in comparison to the Maybelline one. It just seems a bit too expensive to justify at £20.50. Whereas, the Lash Sensational is £8.99, and on a 3 for 2 offer at boots most of the time.
Hope this helps anyone wanting to try out a new mascara, it won’t disappoint!
