Lipstick SOS

Nooooooooo! I have officially lost my newest MAC lipstick, my Sheen Supreme in Royal Azalea.

I used it yesterday morning, put it in the pocket of my dress to touch up whilst at work (can’t keep my makeup bag in the office) and by the time I’d got to work it was gone!

I did wonder, “have I actually put it in my pocket, could it be at home?” Nope. And it wasn’t in the car, so I can only assume that it’s on a train somewhere… Sob!

I feel especially sad because it was the newest member of my lipstick family. I bought it at the airport and used it a couple of times whilst away, and was really looking forward to using it when my tan had faded. Le sigh…

Have you ever lost a beloved member of your makeup family??

Love a sad Leafy x

UPDATE!
A miracle has happened! I am now reunited with the Lost Lipstick!
“But where was it?!” I hear you cry!
Under my car seat. Drama over.

Hee Hee ha ha! *sheer delight

Monday, Monday

Goooooooood Mornin’!
Monday, start of a new week, and start of a new face. I have totally fallen in love with this Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfecter BB Cream again!
The thing is, when I first bought this around 3 months ago, I wanted to really like it, but I just.. didn’t. I was disappointed that on its own it really didn’t help my skin tone as it claims, it felt quite wet on my combination skin, and even when trying it under foundation, it felt like it was just slipping around a bit. Not happy. Nevertheless, I kept it, thinking that maybe I’d like eventually.

So yesterday as I continued to use my Vichy Corrective Foundation sample, and powdered up with my Laura Mercier Mineral Powder, I wasn’t happy with the look of my skin. It was too matte and I realised that I really wanted to go back to having more dewy looking skin. As I’m yet to buy the amazingness that is the Oil-free Tinted Moisturiser by Laura Mercier, (waiting for payday ugh!) my eyes landed on the BB Cream.. Maybe, I thought, just maybe.
Buffing this on with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, with just a pea sized amount on the back of my hand, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome! It went on smoothly, and evened out my skin tone, and even covered most of my blemishes, and as I had used this quite sparingly, my skin was dewy that needed only a hint of powder to set.
What I will say is that the improvement in my skin lately has contributed to my change of opinion of this BB Cream (more to come on that), so if you have pretty decent skin, you are pretty likely to feel the same about this as I do now.
I’d love to know anyone’s thoughts on this BB Cream, and any others you’ve tried so feel free to pop a comment down below!

Face Of The Day

Hello, Happy Saturday! I thought I’d upload a quick FOTD, as this MAC Matte lipstick in ‘So Chaud’ is what has been making me feel better after my terrible nights sleep on Thursday. No matter how tired I’m feeling, a pop of bright lippie is always guaranteed to make me feel myself again!

What make up/ beauty products do you swear by to make you feel human again?

John Lewis Haul

Over Christmas (aaaaaages ago, I know!) I was fortunate enough to have won the Christmas Managers incentive at work, and received £200 John Lewis vouchers. So with some set aside to buy our wedding invitations, the remaining amount I decided to use to treat myself to a couple of products I had been eyeing up. Wine glasses and YSL L’homme bought for my boyfriend, I decided to finally purchase NARS blush in Orgasm, Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, and finally after being highly recommended by Vivianna I selected Origins GinZing eye cream. I was in beauty product heaven! I’ve been using all of them for over a week now, so watch this space for a review! Love Leafy x
