This feather light ultra fine pure mineral powder base gives a radiant, natural-looking finish and can be built up for extra coverage. It is non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin. Gives a radiant finish, covers imperfections and fine lines,is dermatologically tested and also contains SPF 25.
Im unsure about these products. I definitely think they are very interesting containing extra virgin olive oil and im not sure how that would work on an oily skin. But i may go and purchase the Mineral Cream Compact as it wins me over that its paraben free! (horray!) What do you all think about these? Will you be trying them?

I love these bars of soap and i’m so glad i got the opportunity to try them! They are heavily sentenced and the scent transfers and lasts on your skin. They are not overpowering they are just right. Not only do they smell good they look gorgeous as well. Mysoap has many benefits, the products are organic, they do not test there products on animals – and for me that's something which is so important, and they are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The came beautifully packages, and you can tell they were sent with care. I honestly can’t find anything back to say about these soaps! I will definitely be buying some they are just great.

What Rimmel say about the product: our first mascara that creates two dramatically different lash looks with just one brush. The secret is the magic double cap! Multi-tasking 2 in 1 defined length/intense volume mascara. Top cap: exceptionally defined and ultra-lengthened lashes. Bottom cap: thickens lashes with voluptuous, oversized volume. No clumps.
Why i like it? I like this product because it is actua;;y true to what iy says it does. It creates two different lash looks with in the one mascara. I was abit weary whether to buy this mascara or now as i thought it would be rubbish, that it would create a clumpy look with both brushes. How wrong was i? If i use the lengthening cap ut truely makes my lashes long and defined. If i team it with the volume cap it makes them think and dark without the clumps – very ideal for when you want your lashes to be noticed. I also think the packaging is great, very eye catching and noticeable. As well as retailing for £7.99 at Boots, whilst getting a free gift when spending over £6 on selected Rimmel products or alternatively you can get it at Superdrug for the same price without the free gift! It is a brilliant affordable high street mascara that i do recommend!
If any of my readers live near a Mac counter and would like to do me a massive favour please comment or email me!

What Urban Decay say about the product.. You can look great NAKED! This long, lean, seductive case is packed with TWELVE gorgeous neutrals. Shades range from delicate champagnes to dark, gritty gunmetal, and feature FIVE NEW shades with names like Darkhorse, Virgin and Buck. We've also included a range of textures: everything from glitter to shimmer to matte. The chocolaty velvet case is emblazoned with the word "NAKED" in gold foil lettering. The mirrored case also includes a professional quality, cruelty-free Good Karma Eyeshadow Brush, AND a travel-size Eye Shadow Primer Potion in original formula. Experiment with office-appropriate neutrals, summertime bronzy looks, or sultry smokiness. With such a diversity of neutral shades at your fingertips, there's more to neutral than meets the eye.
I think the product is exceedingly good value for money as i looked into it before i bought it. Each eye shadow is 1.3g when a single eye Shadow from Urban Decay is 1.5g and is priced around £13. So in this palette you get 12x 1.3g worth of eye Shadow which is exceptionally good. They are very pigmented and last hours on the lid especially when used with the Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion, you get a travel size sample of this in the kit which is a nice little bonus. Some people may see this as a downside that Urban Decay have only put three matte shades in this but personally i don’t! This palette also contains the ‘professional quality, cruelty-free good karma eye shadow brush.
So do any of you own this palette? If so what do you think about it? Thanks for reading! xxx

Garnier claims the 2-in-1 formula is a moisturising eye cream & a cooling roller ball which refreshes and hydrates tired-looking eyes with mineral enriched pigments it instantly covers dark circles
Why i love it? I love this product because it makes my eyes completely flawless! After applying my foundation i apply the product and then blend it in with my fingers . I don’t have bad dark circles but i like how it gives the eyes a tidy look and completely blends in with my foundation. Its a complete must have Product. I really do recommend this product even after one use.
So today i went on a hunt to buy one and i noticed one on a market i went to for £5! Your all going to say i bet that's been used before blah but lots of stalls were selling them for £5 and i did double check the roll-on ball was concealer free, either way im happy with my bargain.
Have any of you tried my new favourite product? If so, what are your thoughts? Thanks for reading xxx

On to the blush and what The Body Shop say about it. ‘A blusher and a highlighter in a duo palette. Handmade and slow-baked on a terracotta disc, it gives up to eight hours of colour’
And what i think about it? I love this product! I love the fact its a 2-in-one product for the price of £12 i think that's just amazing from the body shop. Its a lovely colour, lasts a long time on the cheeks. The highlighter is brilliant for just under the brow aswell as mixed in with the blusher for the apples of my cheeks. This product does live up to standards and lasts longer than eight hours on my skin. I got this in shade 01 Petal which i think is just lovely, just enough pink to give my face a glow.
Have you tried any products from the Baked-To-Last range? If so let me know what you think! Thanks for reading xxx

So first i started off with a base coat, which i then left to dry. I then applied two coats of No7 ‘35 Iced Mocha’ and again i thoroughly let them dry. I then got out my Konad Stamping kit and used the plate ‘m57’ with my MUA nail polish in shade ‘2’. I finished this with a quick drying top coat :) do you all like it as much as i do?

As i saw they didn’t have the other mask i wanted i looked round and saw they had lots of offers on on hair care so i then picked up a Herbal Essence mask which is called ‘ignite my colour’ for coloured and highlighted hair and it contains acid berry and silk extracts which makes the product smell gorgeous. I was so glad when i saw this product on offer as i had recently looked at buying this in Sainsbury's but was way over £4 so i picked this one up for £1.98!
If these products are amazing expect a review! And i suggest you all head down to Superdrug or check the website out as they currently have free standard delivery to stock up on haircare products! Also what do you all think about the new layout? Good, Bad? Please tell me what you think! Thanks for reading xxx

So first i picked up a makeup bag as i fancied a change from my pervious one. I think is one is really cute and i won me over and i bought it for £2.50! Its super cure and is made out of a chiffon fabric which i think gives it an unusual effect.
