Beauty Blender First Impression & Review.

I am subscribed to Birchbox and can you imagine how excited I was this month to receive a Beauty Blender with Blender Cleanser Solid (£26 RRP) as one of my products? I had been looking online for months at these and had been arguing with myself about whether a sponge was worth that much money! Everyone has raved on and on about how they are so amazing but I couldn’t justify the price.

I usually use the Benefit ‘Hello Flawless’ powder foundation and hadn’t ever found a liquid foundation (which is essential with the Beauty Blender) that I felt worked with my skin; mostly oily but with occasional dry patches, pink undertones and pale. When I received my Beauty Blender I took myself down to Boots and had myself colour-matched for the first time and it turns out I am the lightest shade – Calico – in their No.7 range. I wanted a medium to full coverage and the advisor recommended their Stay Perfect Foundation (£14.50) which is for all skin types. I had been wanting their Beautifully Matte Foundation (£13.50) which is specifically for oily skin and contains salicylic acid to combat blocked pores but on testing it I felt it was a little heavy for me. 

So please check out my vlog below to see what I thought of the Beauty Blender and how it applied my foundation. The one thing I missed out in my video is that I would have preferred the black Beauty Blender because your foundation will stain, even after cleaning. It’s not a huge deal but I just wanted to add that as I hadn’t washed mine until after filming this so didn’t mention it in the review.

September 2014 Birchbox – Fantastic Contents (IMO).

I was so excited to receive the Beauty Blender! However, my foundation of choice is Benefit’s ‘Hello Flawless’ powder, which obviously cannot be applied with the blender. I may try the liquid ‘Hello Flawless’ or look at a Mac foundation because I’m interested in trying Mac’s concealer too. 

Whichever one I try I shall be sure to film a review of both the foundation, and the Beauty Blender. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you enjoy my videos, I’d really appreciate it. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. 

 

I’m In A Reading Slump.

As the title suggests. I’ve been in a huge reading slump now for the past 3-ish weeks. I have no inspiration or motivation to read, despite a huge pile of books and a ton of e-books that I need to review. It’s not even like I have no books that interest me. Around three quarters of them are really exciting sounding but every time I think I’ll sit down with a book, I’m just like…’meh’.

Chanel ‘Taboo’ 583 Nail Polish Review.

This polish is so beautiful! It’s the first real high-end polish I have tried (I’m used to OPI) and I definitely think that this was worth the money. Team it with the Chanel top coat and a good base coat for a long lasting, chip free, high shine mani! Please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you like my videos.
