Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation & Mattifying Setting Powder - Review

too faced, peach perfect comfort matte foundation, mattifying setting powder, review, makeup

It's a range I have been waiting ages and ages for...

The latest instalment of Too Faced's peachy craze finally arrived on the Debenhams website early last month (May).

I'm not quite sure why they do this...there appears to be an annoying habit when it comes to product releases from Too Faced in the UK by choosing this topsy-turvy process where earlier collections arriving here much later, sometimes almost a year later than the newer releases. Take the new Natural and Festival range for example, both released a lot later than the Peach. And I know, I know, I get that Too Faced opened a store in London. But it's still annoying though, isn't it?

Anyways. I recently celebrated being the wrong side of 45 (I need to remind me I'm close to being half a century!) and the one thing I wanted was to try some products from the new Peach collection. I managed to get the Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation, Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder and the Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow palette ( didn't think I was gonna miss out on a new eyeshadow palette, did you? lol!) Being as its Summer and after hearing countless of good reviews on the foundation, all saying it gives a lovely finish and wears really well, it seemed a no-brainer to try during these warmer months.

The palette, however, will be reviewed at a later date when I've had a good chance to play with it. But one thing I will say that it does smell of peach!

Anyways. Let's get on with the review...

The Collection: Lipsticks From Charlotte Tilbury

review, charlotte tilbury, lipsticks, collection, bitch perfect, liv it up, super cindy, secret salma, american sweetheart, coachella coral


Today's post features 6 fabulous lipstick shades from makeup artist's and blogger's fave, Charlotte Tilbury.

A legendary makeup artist in her own right, Charlotte Tilbury launched her own makeup brand in 2013 with a vision to empower ordinary women (like you and me) create the most beautiful version of themselves. Her range has been curated into 10 looks that were inspired by creations she applied on some of the most high-profile celebrities she has worked on, such as Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham and Cindy Crawford.

My collection began two summers ago after falling head over heels for the shade Bitch Perfect. One swipe was all it took, resulting in a flattering display that made me feel like a million dollars! The combined moisturising and luminous factor delivered the most flattering, youthful look I had seen since discovering Mac's Shy Girl. I was instantly hooked, and since then (along with a repurchase of the named shade) I have steadily become obsessed with new shades that has fallen from her lipstick tree.

New To Me Skincare: Marine Hyaluronics, Matrixyl + HA & Natural Moisturising Factors

skincare, the ordinary, marine hyaluronics, natural moisturising factors, matrixyl, antiageing,

Home improvement never seems to end....

The consequence of decorating that final room can often result in having to go full circle again because it shows up the rest of the house. After a recent overhaul involving a spanking brand new kitchen, I thought it would be our last project for now.... I was wrong. The study has been the latest to have a makeover. Perhaps I should've started up a second blog. Lol!

So, after popping to the garage for the original tin to give the walls a quick spruce up, (I liked the original as it was bright and airy) I soon realised after the furniture had been removed, I should've re-painted the whole room instead. My decorating skills, although generally pretty good, wasn't up to scratch at the time of painting due to two little helpers assisting at the time (bless them), and looking closely I could see the walls are - shall we say - a tad patchy! New carpet is to be laid in less than 24hours. Oops!

I am now currently painting the washrooms.

So, what's this got to do with skincare, you may ask?

For once, skincare or makeup hasn't been the culprit to have dented my purse...home improvement has. Once a room has been completed, filling it with all those essential pretty accessories becomes too much of a joy to resist! Not only for the room that's had the makeover, but also for tweaking and freshening up the rest of the house (dear loorrdd!)

So, back to the budget buys I'm showing you today which has once again proved I needn't be heading to the high price tags of the beauty counters in order to obtain good skin.

Review: Natural World Chia Seed Oil Shampoo & Conditioner

Natural World is an award winning hair care brand you may recognise if you're a regular shopper at Tesco. 

Created in the heart of Soho, London, their products are cruelty-free and vegan friendly. Each range contains a blend of 95% natural derived ingredients which include superfoods from across the world, to help address hair concerns from frizz to dryness. They've also left out the nasties such as Parabens, Dyes, Phosphates, Silicones, Gluten and Mineral Oil. However, the shampoos do contain SLS & SLES which for me is no longer an issue as my daughter has now grown out of her spell of eczema.

A recent packaging overhaul has resulted in a colourful set of bottles that would bring a cheerful display to any bathroom shelf. Each Shampoo and Conditioner costs around £6 which may sound a lot considering they are sold in the supermarket, these do come in a 1ltr size (also 500ml) which I think is a pretty good deal, and also gives enough supply for all the family. As well as the Shampoo and Conditioner, there is also hair treatments within each range too.
