Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff

134697-0108_1

I couldn’t live without my fake tan but it’s such a pain to get it off sometimes, especially in areas where skin is hard.  But fear not, Cocoa Brown have the problem solved.

Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff is a no nonsense invigorating exfoliator in a handy tube that lasts for about 4 showers, making it the perfect addition to the Cocoa Brown tanning collection. Rough areas such as hands, feet, elbows and knees, beware! Get ready for utterly silky smoothness with Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff. The body scrub is incredibly tough on the “problem areas” and is the perfect solution to tanning prep troubles.

A good scrub leaves your skin silky smooth and most importantly tan free. I really recommend this product. It has saved me sooo much time and effort, any of you tan freaks out there will know what I’m talking about.

NYX Tame And Frame

Nyx-Tame-and-Frame-tinted-brow-pomade-in-brunette-swatch

I can honesty say this has been one of my favourite products to use for awhile now. I have never really been and eyebrow person but for some reason it all changed and I’m obsessed. I’ve tried a few products now and have settled on NYXs tame and frame for awhile.

As NYX stated this product comes in five shades: blonde, chocolate, brunette, espresso, and black. The product comes in a frosted, clear plastic container with a black circular lid. 18 oz of product comes in the container. This product lasts about six months according to the expiration date on the container. At such an affordable price of 8 euro how can you resist.

I love this product! Everything from the lasting power to the pigmentation to the price make it an amazing product. It’s a great alternative to Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Dipbrow. Notice I didn’t say dupe, it’s definitely not a dupe. Although I do love this product.

Bare Minerals Shimmer Eyeshadow

bareMinerals_7_Ways_To_Bare_Eyeshadows

Simply stunning!! I’ve been given these shimmer shades recently and have been so excited to try them out, not really knowing what  my expectations were. The went on without any effort and blended so easily. I actually wasn’t expecting it to be. I will say I thought they were going to be a bit more glittery than they were however that’s just me being picky.

The colour options are very much varied from light shades to the dark. I think it’s well worth picking up a few of these shades since they are one-of-a-kind and do not crease, even without primer.

Race Day Antics

IMG_5148

As a college student, race day is something that must be experienced. The perfect excuse to get all glammed up and yes of course drink. The planning and prep that goes into it, you’d swear it was a wedding. Now I know what your probably thinking, your not really into horse racing, well I didn’t look at a race once and don’t even get me started on how to place a bet.

Its all a bit of fun and an excuse to skip college for a day. A great way to bring everyone together and in my opinion promote fashion. I loved seeing all the different styles and different personalities shine through in their outfits. Any excuse to get dressed up I suppose. I can’t link my outfit below i’m afraid, the were bought awhile ago. I’ll still let ye know where they’re from.

Cat Von D, Lock It Featherweight Primer.

3534408_17bb57c3_m

Gather round dry skin girls you need the new Kat Von D lock it primer(32 euro) which is a water based facial primer that was introduced for Spring 2015 to the permanent Kat Von D Sephora Makeup Collection.

If you’re looking for something to reduce the appearance of pores or something to mattify your skin, well, this isn’t a good pick for you. However, if your dry, thirsty skin needs more moisture, this is in fact a product for you!

Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer comes housed in the same round container as the Kat Von D lock it foundation. It also has a new little plug which can be placed over the spout to prevent the primer from hardening up inside the container.

The formula contains a host of great ingredients like B5, aloe vera, jojoba, and even shea. It’s the type of product that provides moisture and just keeps on giving because my skin feels pleasantly moist throughout the day without being shiny, greasy, or dewy. When my skin is moist, my foundation is happy. It gives my skin a smooth, well hydrated surface for my makeup to cling to.

Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer is an excellent facial primer for those with drier skin! Although I have normal skin it still works wonders. This one is nice for providing long lasting moisture, providing a smooth, hydrated surface for makeup, and allows makeup to wear fresher for longer. Trust me, Its a great pick.

Glitter Is Always An Option

IMG_6304

Festival season is officially here and I know your all looking for ways to get creative, without looking like someone who’s just been through a colour run. Keeping it simple can be so much more effective. Some glue/duraline and glitter is all you need. As I said, glitter is always an option.

Glitter can be found almost anywhere in all shapes and sizes, I bought mine in Inglot (15 euro, yes I agree, a little over priced). I used their duraline too. Trust me you’ll be lost without it, it works for everything. from cleaning up your eyeliner to applying glitter. Keep it simple and go wild with the outfit, you wont be missed.

Charcoal Skincare from Iroha

IMG_6387

Iroha charcoal mask:

I never had many blackheads to begin with however I just wanted to try out these “problem solving” masks that everyone has been talking about. Now I didn’t go as far as making my own masks, I did the lazy thing and went to the shops. If you think about it I could have just saved my skin a whole lot of hassle, God only knows what I would have come out with I can barely cook.

iroha-charcoal-skincare-peel-off-detox-mask-1440x1080

I did say I didn’t have many blackheads to begin with so it was hard to see if it really works because I couldn’t really see any when I took it off however I definitely felt a difference. my skin was a lot smoother. I tried to do the professional thing that I noticed people did on youtube and apply it with a makeup brush but I just found it didn’t really work for me and it was just messy so I just did it with my hands. Only applying it to the main spots, T-zone and leaving it for 20 minutes.

I’m not going to lie I was so scared to take it off. I have seen so many videos online of it being so sore to take off and boy was I wrong. It didn’t hurt at all and came off like a dream. I will say there was nothing to close off the lid once I had finished. I had so much more product in the packet, such a shame to waste it all. I wrapped it in clean film but i’m not sure how much that will do. At 5 euro I thought it was priced really well and very affordable.

As far as commenting on blackheads i’m the wrong person to be talking to however I did see an improvement so I do think it would remove the blackheads that are present, I just didn’t have any to begin with.
