Hello, I hope everyone is well. I'm taking a quick break away from revising police sub-culture (surrounded by post-its and highlighters!) to do a post on a couple of recent additions to my collection. After trying a mineral foundation last week but it unfortunately not matching my skin tone I decided to try and different brand and colour because I loved the feel of the product on my skin and liked the coverage it gave. I ordered Lily Lolo's Mineral Foundation in Porcelain from Cutecosmetics, after Rachel from Cutecosmetics recommended it to me as a better match for my skin. It arrived today (yay) and I'm a very happy bunny.
I like the packaging of this, it's simple and the sifter is great to avoid having loads of excess product on your brush, however you can remove it if you don't like it. It's also a good size you get 10g of product in a 40ml tub so its not too huge to be carrying around. The product itself has no harsh chemical or parabens and has a natural spf, which is great if you have pale skin like me. It's also suitable for vegetarians and vegans! So thats a great start, but the best part is it matches my skin perfectly!! I'm so happy because it is a very fine line for me and foundation of any kind but this is probably the best i've ever found. It's a good coverage and doesn't look powdery on my skin, which is good because I prefer a natural looking foundation for everyday. It retails for £12.49 which is great value I think, considering the price of other mineral foundations on the market. So i'd definitely recommend this product to anyone who like me struggles to find foundations light enough!
The second thing is the EOS Lip Balm sphere in Strawberry Sorbet, I ordered this last week again from Cutecosmetics (which is definitely becoming one of my favourite sites!) and i've been using it everyday since!
I love the packaging, its just so different from anything else! It's tactile and makes applying the balm so easy. Love the colours of the cases as well, each flavour has a different colour which is cute. It smells amazing, pretty much like a sweet shop, which I love because I definitely have a sweet tooth! It has shea butter, jojoba oil and vitamin E and these combined leave your lips feeling so smooth and it lasts for ages unlike other lip balms that seem to disappear after a few minutes. My lips feel really hydrated after using this. This product has been raved about on many blogs and sites so I was a bit dubious that it wouldn't live up to the hype but it definitely does and i'm glad I got it. It retails for £5.95, which is more than i'd normally spend on a lip balm but it was worth it, for the cute packaging and mainly because the product itself is great.
So just a couple of recommendations and definitely check out Cutecosmetics for some great products. Hope everyone is having a good day. I'm off to get back to revision! Roll on summer is all I can say!
