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 :)

My favourite make up brushes

For someone like me who wears make up practically every day and who owns a fair few make up brushes i thought i would share my favourite brushes that i use, and what i use them for!  I do have quite the selection, and to be honest with you there are some that i never really pick up so i should pass them on to someone who would get more use out of them! there are definitely  a fair few that i always pick up, and i do use a lot of them! mainly because i get lazy with washing my brushes, so i tend to go through most of them and then i tend to do a big batch wash. I will start with the ones i own the most of, foundation brushes, i tend to use one for about a week then go onto a nice clean one until i am running pretty low on clean ones, thats when i tend to wash them! which i do actually enjoy doing! i would say one of the main keys to your make up is the application, the key to making it look good and flawless is to invest in some good quality make up brushes! the cheap ones t

Is primark makeup worth the hype?

Ive heard soo many good things about primark make up..yes you heard it right primark make up! that i had to test it myself! to be honest its not a make up line that i ever really thought much about or even looked at before. But i heard that they upped there game and brought out new ranges which were dupes of high end brands! my primark beauty section isn't the biggest but they had a fair selection there and it seems over the past few months they have been getting more and more things in! i wanted to try all of  the foundations, one of which was a long wear one (i cant remember the exact name? as that one i particular is meant to be a dupe for estee lauder! they unfortunately didn't have my shade which was a real shame as i really wanted to try i but i didn't fancy walking around with a face that totally doesn't match my neck what so ever!. Admittedly i did forget to pick up a bronzer and a contour set and a primer but i can test these at a later date. i was more int

Zoella splash botanics range

I have been meaning to write this post ever since the splash botanics products launched! but i am FINALLY getting round to doing it!  i absolutely love all of the ranges Zoella brings out, she never disappoints me with what she brings out! but this range seemed to of caught my attention a lot more, first of all can we just appreciate the packing?! It is just insanely beautiful and its right up my street as I'm obsessed with the palm and monstera leaf prints at the moment! Botanical is very much in right now for summer! and i feel like this range just seems really adult like should i say?! it definitely has more of a grown up feel to it!  The new range you get: the botanic eau' body mis t -This is sooo different to what she has ever released before but it definitely has a 'summer vibes' scent to it. Its very fresh and floral! its a great price too at just £8! and i love the bottle! so soft lip oil - I'm really into my lip oils at the moment! and this one s
