I am so fussy when it comes to scents, I’m either a fan of everything girly so I smell like a walking, talking vanilla pod or flower or I want to walk past someone and all they smell is a strong musky smell and think that a really nice smelling guy just walked past them. Well maybe not that bad, a musky scent with a hint of floral lets say.
One of my all time favourite perfumes for years now has to be the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh £65, I’ve been a firm lover of this for probably around 5 years now and I know it’s going to be my go to scent years in the future. I’m a massive fan of all of the Marc Jacob scents but the reason this one is my favourite is because of the fruity, sweet, floral scent it has. It really is a girly scent.
Something that I can say about Daisy Eau So Fresh is that I am in love with the bottle, I feel like this perfume could be the worst smelling thing in the world but I would still love it because of the bottle itself. With the white, yellow and pale pink flowers on the cap and the pale pink bottle it really is beautiful and perfect for Spring.
I would say that this scent is perfect for Spring and Summer but as I said before to me it is an all year round scent. This scent is definitely one for your girlfriend, your mother, her mother, your nan, the lady down the street that occasionally says hi to you . . . Basically this is a perfume for any lady in your life.
I’m so bad that when it comes to makeup I actually hardly use primer, probably the reason why my skin is awful and my makeup looks horrible after a while.
But I’m trying to be better and trying to get into primers again and with the whole L’Oreal Paris Infallible hype going round I decided to test out their Mattifying Base Primer £8.99.
It comes in the same packaging as the foundation does but it’s just filled with the clear primer (obviously.) It’s a pretty thick primer with that weird primer texture, do you know what I mean? Like it has a weird texture that I get with all primers, basically it feels like all the others.
I’ve used this for a while now with the foundation and I love it, it keeps my foundation in place all day and it creates a lot less creasing than I normally would get.
I would like to point out that when I was badly sunburnt I used this for that little protection layer with my foundation and to ya know try and make sure you couldn’t see my bubbling, crusty skin through it. Seriously I looked like a old mans saggy, crusty ballsack.
It was disgusting.
But this primer saved it a little, like I still looked bad but I didn’t look anywhere near as bad as I did without the foundation on.
Overall fave primer at the minute!
I’m so fussy when it comes to mascaras, I can never find one that I truly love or even find one that works for me. Usually every mascara I try makes my non existent lashes look short and stumpy, with the occasionally horror spider lashes.
So I decided to treat myself on a whim really, so I purchased the YSL False Lash Effect Mascara £24.99YSL False Lash Effect Mascara £24.99 – the most bloody expensive mascara I’ve ever bought. But oh my do I regret buying this, not because of the fact I hate it but because of the complete opposite – I absolutely adore this mascara which sucks because now I have to fork out basically £25 whenever it runs out.
I love the packaging of this with it being smooth and gold, it just looks so fancy and expensive – which is good because ya know it bloody is. The formula of this is pretty wet, but not so wet that it becomes a nucience and every time you blink you get serious smudgy panda eyes. You just have to make sure that you’re eyes have dried a little before looking up so you don’t ruin your shadow.
Can’t mess up that blending now can we.
I’ve had this YSL False Lash Effect Mascara now for around 3 months and I basically use it everyday and it’s no where near drying up at all so I feel like it’s one of those mascaras that lasts for ages, which is great considering the price. How many times can I mention the price?
Overall I love, love, love this mascara. It makes my lashes look so long and fluttery like it’s actually amazing considering my lashes normally look horrific.
I know that I’ve already done a whole review on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade but that was around two years ago so I think it’s time for a new one, mainly because if I remember correctly I absolutely hated it back then.
I have fallen head over heels in love with the dipbrow, I honestly don’t really know how I have ever been able to do my brows without it. I was in love with my old one which has sadly been completely used up after two years but I mean that’s saying how good this is with the fact it’s lasted me two, TWO whole years before I had to repurchase it.
My old one was pretty dry and was annoying to use because I had to wet my brush before using it but neither less I loved it and now with my new one, oh my. It’s amazing, I completely forgot what it was originally meant to be like with it being silky and easy to apply with you only needing a little bit to do a whole brow or both.
I just love the handy little pot it comes in which looks sleek and is small enough that makes it easy to transport to how it makes your brows look full and defined. I honestly just can’t get enough of this product and I know in another two years when this bad boy runs out I’ll be buying another.
On my recent trip to Berlin I ended up getting distracted by all of the makeup – shocker. But I ended up picking up this Douglas Mascara and Eyeliner duo which I think is great for the fact it saves up room in your makeup bag when you’re travelling, no more separate mascaras and eyeliners.
The main thing that made me buy this apart from the price – uh €7 is a bargain – is the fact when I looked at the eyeliner nib it was nice and thin, the kind of thin that made me fall in love with The Balms Schwing eyeliner. Plus the packaging of this is absolutely gorgeous so I love that too, it’s very Spring/Summer with the pale pink and blue design. It’s also very girly which I love.
I do tend to get mixed up with which end is which because even though they are labelled up pretty well so you can tell I’m not extremely lazy and end up forgetting to read them. No surprise there.
The eyeliner on this is amazing, and I mean amazing. It makes the most prefect flick and creates a thin line on your lid, you can even make it thicker really easily which is great. I feel like since I’ve been using this my eyeliner has gone back to being fleeky which makes me so happy, I’ve missed having fleeky eyeliner especially since my makeup skills have became almost non existent.
The only bad thing about this product is the mascara, I just don’t like it and I can’t get on with it. It doesn’t coat my upper lashes well and makes them kind of look non existent, they just add a bit of colour to them. But on that note this mascara is great for your lower lashes with the wand being quite thin and small.
