Too Faced: Born This Way Sculpting Concealer - is it better than Shape Tape?

Can you believe it? I’ve finally finished a tube of Shape Tape! I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't buy the new Born This way Super Coverage Multi-Tasking Concealer unless I’d finished Shape Tape. Being a bit of a makeup hoarder, it’s not a promise I usually stick to. But I did it. I finally did it!

Limited Edition Holiday Release From Hourglass - Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 4

If you follow me on Instagram, (a little plug there if I may!) you will have read that I passed on last year’s holiday edition due to planning on buying the full-size of one of the powders. Unfortunately, that didn’t materialize. So, when I heard that Dim Light was featuring in this year’s holiday release, there was no way I was going to miss out.

Lately, I’ve been enjoying the freedom of working overtime now that my kids are older, which has also made a nice change from dealing with the usual monotonous piles of washing and attention seeking  white goods beeping for my assistance, lol! So, due to this little burst of excess cash, I ended up paying a nice little luxury visit to the Space N.K. website for an early Christmas treat from Hourglass  Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 4.

Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50+ - a non-greasy sunscreen that leaves no white cast

I have a confession...

I knew sunscreens were the most important beauty product you should use.
However, despite this knowledge, the use of a separate one would be something I'd shy away from (bows head in shame) as they often came with a reputation of being heavy, greasy and just not pleasant to wear. So, instead, I would use those that were formulated within makeup products or moisturisers despite knowing it wasn't going to provide adequate protection from UV rays.

Forward on a few years and with a small army of retinols and acids now in tow, I finally started using one which I now use religiously. It does the job but it’s a pricey one. So, when this affordable option landed on my doorstep promising no greasiness or white cast, it wasn’t long before it became another winner from Klairs. The SPF50 may seem a little extreme now we’re are heading towards the cooler and greyer skies here in the U.K, nevertheless, protection from harmful rays is needed no matter what the weather has in store especially if I want to delay the wrinkles.

Calling All Skincare Lovers - the Wishtrend vegan-friendly promotion you won't want to miss!

(Post contains affiliate links)

To celebrate Vegan-Friendly week, Wishtrend are giving discounts up to 40% off popular vegan-friendly products. This gives you the perfect opportunity to stock up on your favourite products!

DOUBLE BONUS!!! - Some of these also come with a free gift!

Not shopped with Wishtrend before? Now would be the perfect time to discover some of the biggest names in Korean skincare. I get that it can be difficult to know where to start when purchasing from somewhere you've never shopped before, so to help you on your way, I highly recommend taking a look at the Freshly Juiced range from cruelty-free brand Klairs.

This range is for all skin types including sensitive and is amazing for adding hydration and bringing a brighter, clearer complexion. My favourite so far is the Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop - a vitamin c formula that I use at night that helps my skin look brighter and more even toned the following morning. I can't wait to try their Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask. I've heard so many great things!

Happy shopping!
