The Ordinary Coverage Foundation | Does it Live Up To The Hype?

The Ordinary Coverage Foundation Review

Never before have I witness such a long waiting list for a makeup item such as this one! It seems everyone and their nan has been eagerly waiting with anticipation since the launch of these Serum and Coverage foundations from The Ordinary. It's been crazy!

You may remember me already receiving and loving the Serum foundation - review here if you want to find out more - which I originally ordered the same time as the Coverage foundation way back in the beginning of May. Well the Coverage foundation has finally arrived, and I've been trialling it for a couple of weeks now. It's time to share my thoughts. (Spoiler alert!) One thing I will say is this foundation really had me scratching at the head!

Skincare Empties #4 : Quick Reviews Featuring The Ordinary, Garnier, TonyMoly, Origins and More...

Despite enjoy reading everybody else's,  I hate writing empties posts! Fortunately, I see how the positives can out-way the negatives when it comes to putting these together. However, for me, the negatives are the photos - MY PHOTOS! As they always tend to look like garbage due to the overcrowdedness of all those products; the packets and cut-opened tubes - not exactly atheistically pleasing, is it? Writing about them becomes that bit more hard work as well  because the moment's gone and you want to talk about something shiny and new instead!

But despite these thoughts, empties posts are surprisingly popular amongst enthusiasts because it brings confidence and reassurance to the reader knowing they've used an entire product and gives  a much more thorough insight as to what you might expect! Plus, there could be other things that may have gone missed or has changed since that first initial review. 

And there is a lot to get through! So, these are going to be very speedy! Are we ready?...

Protect Kids from top to toe this summer with Nivea & Eucerin Sun Care*.

KIds Sun Care from Nivea & Eucerin 

Kids and sun cream...if they had their way, the two shall never meet! Having children myself, I know all too well the importance of keeping our little ones safe whilst in the sun. But unfortunately, kids just don't see it that way, and the battles with my two were never in short supply because they hated the thick, greasy and icky feeling that many sun creams provide; and who can blame them as some are indeed horrible! However, since discovering these from the drugstore favourites, I've been able to finally say goodbye to those daily battles and keep my kids protected from top to toe with a little help from Nivea & Eucerin.

Nivea brings the fun back into  application with their kid-friendly  roll-on  and trigger spray  application to make life that bit easier for everyone; along with their non-sticky, fast absorbing but  deeply moisturising formulas that's specially formulated for children's delicate skin. These contain highly effective UVA/UVB filters for immediate protection and is also water resistant which makes them perfect for fun in the water!

3 Brilliant Eyeshadow Brushes That Make a Difference!


If someone were to ask me what are the most popular eyeshadow brushes that makeup users apply,  I'd have to say it'd probably be a flat shader, a fluffy crease brush and an angled liner. And let's face it - having these has you pretty much covered when it comes to creating any eye look. But there are others that I've discovered that I'd now be totally lost if I didn't have. Today, I'm sharing you 3 of my most favourite brushes for those specific jobs when a crease or a flat shader just won't do! I agree these may not be the most prettiest brushes to look at as you can see they've been very well loved! I find these to be brilliant for either multi-tasking or for taking a specific job to the next level.

Tanya Burr My Escape Eye Palette | Review & Swatches

Tanya Burr My Escape Eyeshadow Palette 

To kick off the Summer season, YouTube vlogger Tanya Burr has released a new collection to her makeup range called Neutral Ambience. The Summer release sees two new eyeshadow palettes: a khaki based quad called My Escape, and an inspired Rose Gold sunset called My Paradise. The collection also features two new lip shades: Bear Hug - a Peachy Nude (I'm debating on that one) and Sunday Walk - a Rose Pink.

I admit, other than watch the odd makeup tutorial, I'm not really a follower of Tanya Burr (it's mainly the young that follow her) but I do follow her Sisters in-law, Pixiwoo - and it wasn't until I watched one half of the duo (Sam) create a khaki themed look using the My Escape eye palette, was then  inspired to make a purchase. Performance wise, I wasn't sure what to expect as I've heard a lot of mixed reviews with regards to her products. But considering it only cost £ 5.99, I wasn't that worried.

Hourglass | Ambient Lighting Edit Palette - Surreal Light : Review and Swatches

The Ambient Lighting Edit Palette in Surreal Light is probably the most expensive makeup product I own, and one that had my husband witness me lose all sense over when I politely asked for his assistance in purchasing this (in other words, his wallet!) last Christmas (yes, that long ago!) For as long as I can remember, I'd read nothing but people raving about Hourglass. So when they released this limited edition, I thought it'd be a great way to try a variety of different products and see what all the fuss was about. Unfortunately, unlike other fans of Hourglass, for me, my love affair with this palette proved no easy ride due to the timing of this rather warmed toned, summer-esque compact was released (in the middle of British Winter); and other than the odd outing, it had pretty much been sitting left redundant in my drawer - until recently.
