so the Portuguese delivery service provided a bit of a turn of events, so all I could do was an impromptu haul of the little nuggets at Lyon Sephora.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita
This is nothing less than a phenomenon. Due to its very low price (under 7 €) and to the amazing array of colours, the foundations from The Ordinary have been constantly sold out. If you want one, you really have to want it and wait for quite a while…
The Ordinary foundations come in two finishes: Serum (Lower coverage, dewier finish) and Coverage (higher coverage and demi-matte finish). They have no frills nor high claims, and it’s almost a relief to know that. It’s just a foundation.
I managed to get my hands on the Serum version, and that’s what I’m going to talk to you about.
I’ve never done one of these before… How did I go?
Aside from the spinach and lipstick on my teeth, I mean.
oh, you have to go and watch again because you couldn’t stop staring? ok, I’ll wait…
I’ll just leave you here a list of the products mentioned.
I finally got my hands on it, so here comes the in-depth review!
If you’re in the U.S. and Canada (or in a country that is enabled to shop from those online stores), Sephora carries this foundation.
If you’re in the E.U., it depends if there’s an Hourglass counter on your local beauty store. I’ve found that you can order online through SpaceNK.
It´s June already! Gosh darn it.
Well, here are the goodies from this month and also my reviews on the last month’s box!
magic in a bottle, a can that mists you with an invisible shield that protects you from the harmful rays of sun, that can be easily reapplied throughout the day without disturbing your makeup. but which one to go for?
I’ve tried them both. here are my thoughts.
UPDATE: My sister has atopic skin and had an allergic reaction to the La Roche Posay mist. So if you’re very sensitive, I would stay away from this one, sadly.
buckle up because this is a long one!
I’ve been collecting a few bits and pieces of affordable makeup brands (supermarket, drugstore, pharmacy, high street), and I decided to do a video where I try several of those products on my face and get to see how they behave throughout the day.
you can find most of the products at your local drugstore/pharmacy, but Feelunique, Look Fantastic and Boots International are always great international references for these kinds of brands (except Essence, Kiko, H&M and Makeup Revolution).
L’Oréal True Match Foundation (not many shades at Feelunique, but you can find it at your local drugstore)
Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow in Purple Heaven — I couldn’t, for the life of me, find an online store that looked reliable, so check your local drugstore or pharmacy to see if they carry the brand.
a day in my life with the NYX total control drop foundation.
The Clinique Take The Day Off Balm is a highly rated cleansing balm and it is frequently mentioned by Caroline Hirons (my skincare guru) as a great first cleanser.
I had to give it a good go and compare it to my all-time favourite makeup removing cleansers from The Body Shop Chamomile range.
Here are my thoughts on all of these terrific products.
Where to buy?
The Body Shop is widely available in almost every country, so you can look for their shops and website on your location (many have an online shop). Here are the U.K. website links for the butter and the oil.
