Rimmel lasting concealer - its a no from me

I am always on the look out for new make up to try and as i needed to get a new concealer i thought i would go with a different one instead of going for my trusty collection lasting perfection concealer! And i will be honest with you, i was in a local shop of mine which didn't stock many brands so it was more of an 'emergency buy'. I went for the Rimmel lasting finish 25hr breathable concealer in the shade 100 fair.
when i first picked it up the main thing that got me was the cushioned applicator, i was very intrigued!
so this concealer says its long lasting, breathable with medium coverage. and with the cushioned applicator it allows to blend the concealer perfectly and touch up on the go.


Trying it out- i had to really squeeze on the tube for any product to come out, and once it did i applied it under my eyes, i found the consistency very watery and didn't find that it blended in nicely at all, it goes quite streaky and i wouldn't even say it was a medium coverage, its a very light coverage and someone who needs more of a medium/full coverage this didn't do the job! i could still see my circles just as much as if i hadn't put anything on.

25hrs? not sure why anyone would be wearing make up for 25hrs?! after a few hours of wear i found that it creased under my eyes even more and its not as easy to touch it up as it just smears.
its a 7ml tube and to be honest i thought it looked like there was a fair bit of product in the tube but in fact there is hardly any! i have to squeeze the tube until its flat for a tiny amount to come out so that is really disappointing.Its more expensive than the collection one and i don't think it would last no where near as long as the collection lasting perfection.
so all in all, i wouldn't buy this again, for me its not even good enough for an emergency. i think i will stick to my original saviour from now on :)

Revolution pro foundation drops review!

Testing Testing 123!
 I have heard a lot of good things about the revolution pro foundations so obviously i had to try them out!

They are a drug store brand which are available in Superdrug and are extremely affordable!
i have tried quite a few revolution products and they haven't disappointed! makeup revolution seems to impress me more and more everyday! and the brand seems to be extending and adding more additions to the brand like the revolution pro range. So its only fair that i try the new range right?!

well they must be popular because in my superdrug they didn't have much stock in the pro full coverage camouflage foundation which is the one I'm desperate to try! (next time!)
so instead i went for the foundation drops in F5 which i should of probably gone for F4 but i can still work with F5 its just a teeny bit darker but i can still work with it so its fine!
I didn't actually realise but on the website it has details of the numbers and what skin tone it is fo…

why professional over highstreet? (hair care)

As a hairdresser i get asked a lot about the best shampoo's you can buy in a high street store! and my answer to that? NONE.
I always advise my clients to go for professional shampoo. Most of the time the response we get is " but high street brands are a lot cheaper" and yes there is a reason for that...they are full of crap! i wont go into the science part but they have a lot of  harsh chemicals in them that do nothing good for your locks!. You are basically pouring plastic on your hair, alot of the cheaper brands have a lot of silicone's in them, which might lead you to think that its making your hair lovely and soft, but your just coating it and not actually, cleansing your hair ...so then it gets greasy and itchy quick?... i wonder why!

 We do not recommend professional products to gain the money, we actually care about your hair!
they don't have the harsh chemicals in them that the cheaper brands have in. If you colour your hair they don't strip it out! …

I love a good old pamper evening! from having a nice relaxing bubble bath with all my favourite bath products to a good face mask! you name it, if you call it a pamper evening you go all out! right? bath, hair, face, nails, blisssss! although i will be honest with you, i don't actually enjoy painting my nails but i do like it once they are done and are looking pretty!

So first thing is first BATH! literally my favourite thing ever. so we choose a nice bubble bath or a
