L’Oreal True Match Foundation – Worth the hype?

30 Jun

Hello lovelies!


Today’s post is all about the L’Oreal True Match Foundation and whether it is worth the hype that has been circling it in the blogging world. I am in the sade C1  Rose Ivory, which is the lightest sade of the ‘pink family’. L’Oreal often does the three tones thing, where they have varying degree of pink/yellow/neutral shades. Thumbs up from the red-faced gals out there!


I’d say the coverage was a good medium, and it’s definitely buildable, probably due to the liquid to powder consistency. Speaking of, the consistency takes a little getting used to but once it’s perfected the finish is flawless.


It’s got some pretty decent lasting power, I can go about 6-8 hours without looking at my face and still feel comfortable. After that, I need a little powder so I don’t get alllll gross.


Blended out, it gives a semi-matte finish with a luminosity that you can’t really explain….that wasn’t super helpful. It’s not completely matte though. I do think it would satisfy the oily-skinned ladies with a little powder though.

So. Is it worth the hype? Personally I think YES. However, it’s definitely not going to be everyone’s cup of tea! For anyone with suuuuppper dry skin it’s probably going to cling to the dry patches. My skin kind of becomes combination in the summertime so it’s not too much of a problem for me at the moment, but I would absolutely recommend a good moisturise before applying it.

Thankyou for reading guys, if you’ve tried this foundation let me know what you think in a comment!
Have a lovely day/evening, wherever you are!

How NOT To Apply Blusher!

31 May

Hello lovelies!

I was definitely a late bloomer, and I actually didn’t start wearing ANY make-up until I was about 15, and not consistently until 16/17. I don’t know about you, but most things came naturally to me. Mascara, lipgloss, foundation. The one thing that stumped me was blush, and where to apply it, and how to apply it, and what to do once it was on your face.

I ended most attempts like this. 

ImageSo. I might have got the hang of it. Three top tips? Okay then.

1. Everyone’s face shape is different.
I started trying to learn to apply blush by watching YouTube videos. I found that I just couldn’t copy the ‘gurus’, as I have a very round face and they just…don’t. Practice and you’ll find what looks good on you. It might take a while!

2. Less is more.
Start with a light blush that’s peachy or rosy, and perhaps that doesn’t have a lot of pigment. Remember, you can’t take away without starting your whole face over! And very often, you need less on your brush than you think. Build up.

3. Don’t smile!
It doesn’t work! I smiled for a LONNNG time when I applied blush, and I get more compliments/a more natural face now that I don’t plop the product on the apples of my cheeks, but blend it upwards.



Saved it!

ImageHope that my three tips helped!
Just to let you know, I used MUA’s Shade 6 Blush, which is £1. They’ve just brought out six NEW shades, so run run run to Superdrug and grab’em!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful day/evening! I’m off to test out some new shampoos and hair masks! 🙂


Thought I’d share a little thing with you…

I know this is a beauty-review blog, but I like to take different, alternative things to make-up and make people see the beauty of them too. I went round my school today, and managed to get a bunch of people to have a picture taken of their eyes. I zoomed in on one eye, and made a quick collage with them. I think that they are all beautiful! Reviews for anyone who can guess which one is me! 😀
