REVIEW: Garnier Mircale Skin Perfector (BB Cream)

After looking for a new foundation for this summer and for when I go abroad, I stumbled across this tube of glory. For a reasonable £7.49 (from Superdrug). I was looking for something thinner than a foundation, but something that gave more coverage than a tinted moisturiser. So after trying a free sample of the Miracle Skin Perfector, I decided to give it a try. 

I have quite oily skin, but at the same time it can feel quite dry at times. This BB cream does a great job at moisturising my skin, and keeping it that way throughout the day. My skin also has quite a few freckles on it (Which I like to hide majority of the time) and this also does a good job at hiding them, without me looking like I've caked make-up on. Also this does a great job of evening out my skin tone, which is another thing I really like.

This BB cream is also very scented, This may put some people off but personally I LOVE the smell. It hasn't given me a bad reaction to it (touch wood!) and I've had a very good experience with this BB cream.

This BB cream has an OK staying power, I like to put powder over the top to give it a matte look and also help it stay on for longer during the day.

Personally I really like this product, It does a great job of evening my skin tone and hiding my freckles. It doesn't do the best job on any spots/red marks so concealer is still needed for that. But it's a nice light coverage which doesn't feel heavy (Which is great for the hot weather). 

Have I missed anything out? Do you want to know something else about it? Comment below.

NOTD: Golden Cranberry

Cranberry & Golden Goddess 

Recently I've been loving my three new ELF nail-polishes (Post here), So I thought I'd do a little NOTD for you all. I obviously applied a base coat, then the Cranberry nail-polish, then as a top coat used Golden Goddess. These two colours will look great in Autumn/Winter!

What have your nails been wearing recently?

REVIEW: Collection 2000 Skyscraper Mascara

I've never really heard anyone speak about Collection 2000's Skyscraper mascara before, So when I saw it in my local Pound Land, I decided to pick it up and give it a try. In Boots this mascara retails for a respectable £4.99 and you can buy it here

Mine's in the shade 'Ultra black' and yes, it's very black. Which I really like about mascaras. You can also get this mascara in a waterproof version. 

This mascara does a great job and lengthening and separating my lashes without any clumps, much better than my Rimmel London Scandal Eyes. It gives a great everyday natural look, which is great for school or work. Maybe it's not the best for a night-time look when you're looking for more volumized lashes. 

Two coats.

The applicator is unique, it has one side with longer bristles, great for your top lashes, then the other side has shorter ones, which are great for your bottom lashes. This means every lash can get a good coating of the mascara (woo!).

Overall, I really like this mascara. It isn't clumpy, it does a great job and lengthening and it's currently in some Pound Lands, if not then for £5 it hardly breaks the bank to try it.

What do you think? Have you tried this mascara before?
