Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation





There has been so much hype about this foundation in the blogger world and Youtube so I had to get it! Since I started using Mac foundation I couldn't go back to any other cheaper foundation as the coverage was great but I read a review (can't remember whose it was) but they also mentioned they use Mac all the time and when they bought this they were really pleased with it! From reading that I had to go get it. I've been on the look out for a really good foundation I could wear everyday and save my Mac for occasions and when I'm heading out on a night out. It was a bit tricky trying to find a shade that I liked because I love wearing tan everyday( not too dark ) but natural so I wanted it to match up. It's a thick foundation which I love, I hate any foundation that's a watery texture as it feels too oily. I choose True Nude 303 in the photo above you can notice there is a big difference but the shade I choose is a good one for everyday type of makeup looks. 

Left- Mac
Right - Rimmel.

I have to say though, I think people went a little bit over the top with this foundation. Most reviews I read made it out to be exactly like a Mac foundation with brilliant coverage ( that made me really want to buy it! ) But personally, if your looking for medium coverage you need to apply an extra bit to get full coverage. Having said that, I do agree that it is a good foundation there's a hint of shimmer which I was a bit worried about because I hate foundations with a shimmer in it but once applied you can't even notice it! The smell of the foundation reminds me of the other Rimmel foundation with the pink lid, anyone know that one? I use to use it but can't remember what its called!Overall, it is a good foundation for just 10 euro, it's perfect for what I need and I do recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice everyday foundation.

Just a little update..


Yesterday was my last day working in Pavers as I've got a new job in H&M which I'm really excited about! I was delighted to find these gorgeous flowers and lovely card waiting for me in the job from the girls. I absolutely love them, very girly (like myself!) I start work in H&M this Thursday, it will be my induction day. H&M has always been my favourite shop, I love the clothes they're such great quality for the cheap price! When I applied for the job online I didn't even think I'd get a call but fortunately I did and I was extremely happy. So after a phone interview and a round of two interviews I was offered the job. I don't do a lot of shopping hauls and ones which I did you would have already seen I buy my clothes from H&M so expect more hauls and outfit posts. Hope you all had a lovely weekend! 


Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation review post coming tomorrow!

Gosh Trio Eye Shadow






Without Flash..


With Flash..



I have never seen any posts about Gosh products so I wanted to a post myself and hear everyone else's opinions on these products. When deciding I was going to try out Gosh makeup I went for the eyeshadow to see how well it blended and stayed on without going cakey. What really caught my eye about these eyeshadows was the gold. I love gold eyeshadows, especially ones that stand out. All three colours have a shimmer to it and so   I wouldn't wear them together, reason being it never turns out well in photo's. I always wear three matte colours & one shimmer colour. I like to wear the gold colour with chocolate brown matte eyeshadows as it blends really well with them. Now grey isn't a colour I actually wear because I don't think it suits me at all! But this one blends out really nice and it isn't all that glittery & shimmery! For the white base colour, again I never really wear white eyeshadows because I wear a dark foundation I think it looks ridiculous on me, I prefer cream bases, but I like to blend this with a yellowy base to add a bit of sparkle! Overall, they are lovely colours & blend really well but I'd always make sure I apply primer before wearing them (as always).

St.Tropez Taster Collection


I've never tried St.Tropez products before so I was delighted when I got this little collection. I have heard great things about St.Tropez tan so I was dying to try it out. The collection includes body polish, bronzing lotion and body moisturiser. I did a little tester on my hand and I have to say my skin was left so soft and it smelled gorgeous!
The tan itself, hasn't got a pleasant smell although the body polish & body moisturiser do take away that weird smell!




The body polish has a beady texture, you apply this to get rid of any dry patches. I love the smell and the creamy, beady texture gives you lovely soft skin. It's very important to exfoliate, especially before you apply tan. You don't want dry skin/patches showing!  You need to keep your skin well hydrated.




Next step is to apply the bronzing lotion now it does look pretty dark but once blended in it's lighter, Don't rub the tan into your skin. Take great care and do it slowly so you get don't get an uneven looking tan. There is nothing worse than an uneven looking tan & trying to scrub it off! 




The body moisturiser is thick which I love because any thick moisturiser drys in seconds and it's great if you have dry patches. I love trying out different body moisturisers and this definitely is one of my fave. 




Exfoliating and moisturising is so important (and also using a tan that suits your skin!)  I always make sure I exfoliate once a week and moisturise everyday. Skin looks so much healthier and it gives a polished look.
