One product I find that I have never really found my perfect match with is......"Concealer" and boy have I tried loads....!!! Touche Eclat, Benefit, MAC, Clinique, ELF....need I go on?? I either find there to thick, sit in the fine lines under my eyes...(Benefit) Or there to thin and light and don't cover well (Touche Eclat) I think concealers are very personal to your skin texture as well as tone, and my skin is olive in colouring and i think that's where the problem lies, that and having quite bad dark circles from many years of lack of sleep from being a mummy!!
But hey, I will not be beaten there must be a wonder product out there which will make me look airbrushed and like I have just woken from a 12 hour sleep......(LOL) I just haven't found it yet. Next on my hit list is going to be Bobbi Brown, I have heard good things about this and like the idea of the cream concealer and powder in one compact!
Well I would love to hear about your favourite concealers and which ones you really love?.........Who better to ask than you guys??...xxx

So I was still consoling myself that once again I had missed out on a new collection MAC product that I really wanted....:(.....Product in question Ripe Peach Blusher from the Spring Colour Forecast Collection, It's my own fault I should have known better...! Order it online as soon as you see it. don't wait, but hay ho, maybe next time!!
Anyway I decided to go to MAC anyway as I really liked the look of one of the Lipglass lipglosses from this collection in"Ember Glow", I'm really glad I picked this up it's a gorgeous peach colour but its really pigmented so is not just a wash of colour it really fills in the lips...very pretty.... Also I picked up another Lipglass in "Cultured" this is a really nice pink, it didn't look that exciting in the tube, but in application at the MAC counter I loved it, really full on colour and not wishy washy like some glosses. Lastly as I was still hankering after a peachy blusher for summer, I spied.... "Chic Couple" this is a Mineralize two toned blush in a peach and bronze colour. Picture doesn't really do this one justice, its lovely on the skin. Think it's going to be my new fave!!!!
Left "Cultured"..........Right "Ember Glow"
Mineralize Blush......."Chic Couple" (looks pink toned in this pic, but it's really peachy)
Picked anything up from MAC lately??.....:)...x

As you may have noticed from past blogs, my love for the No7 skincare range is definitely growing.....The cleansing balm is my favourite makeup remover really gentle but gets the job done. And the "Purifying Hydration Mask" is a staple favourite for my dry skin!!!
So the other day I was browsing the No7 skincare in my local boots, when I came across this the Purifying Sauna Mask, I like to do a face mask/exfoliate at least 1-2 times a week, and this one is lovely!!!!......You apply it to damp skin and it heats up on contact!! Yes that's right HEATS UP!! and not just a little bit it really feels warm, it has small particles in it for gentle exfoliation. I tend o leave it on for about 2 minutes then wash it off....my skin felt really clean after using this, and the fact that it heated up on contact made it feel that little bit more special!!....It's priced at around £9.50 I think it will last a while you don't need loads of this it goes a long way......Any other face masks you would recommend?....x

Well for my birthday my lovely family got me some make up bits and skincare (skincare will be in another post)....and I thought I would share with you all......!!!!
Urban Decay Palette.................................................Urban Decay 24/7 Eye pencils
I saw this eye palette in House of Fraser a while ago now, and absolutely loved it!!! and I can honestly say i'm so glad I now have it. The colours are all really wearable, there is not one in there that i wouldn't use, which is unusual for collections like this, they normally have some random one in there that never sees my make up brushes!!! But not these, there really pigmented and go on the eyes really well all the colours compliment each nicely. I will say there probably more for evening rather than day time as some of them have undertones of glitter in them, but there are a couple of flat ones too so all in all GREAT!
Now on to my other favourite thing the Urban Decay 24/7 glide on eye pencils, I bought a full size one of these in a lovely Green shade called "covet" a while ago and loved it, these pencils just glide on , no scratchy scraping around the eye which I HATE they are strong colours and are all really pretty..... This set is particularly good as it has nine of the shades in one box of half size pencils, so that way you get to have an array of colours in your collection! The full size pencils are around £11 each I'm not sure how much this set is (roughly £22) but its a lot better value for money buying them this way, plus you get all the shades. I have worn the green pencil "graffiti" and the brown one "corrupt" and they stay on all day, they don't budge!
But trust me these pencils are well worth it, all gorgeous LOVE THEM.......x
