Estee Lauder Idealist Dual Action Refinishing Treatment Review.

Hi Guys, 

I just posted a review about the Estee Lauder Idealist pore minimizing skin refinisher. So i thought it was only right i did a review on Estee Lauder's Idealist dual action refinishing treatment. This has a really great concept this is an alternative product to having micro-dermabrasion or a glycolic acid peel at a salon. I use the size of a 10p on damp skin distribute in circular motions, leave this on for 5 minutes & then rinse. It is recommended that you use once weekly.

 I love the deep thermal action because it feels like it is doing what the product says it does. It's a mix between an exfoliant & a mask. The dual action refinishing treatment makes my skin feel so soft & it looks clean & bright. This prepares your skin for your serum & moisturiser. I believe this is a must have item in your beauty routine.

What Estee Lauder say: ''Ultra gentle, all-in-one treatment delivers the instant, skin-renewing benefits of both Micro-Dermabrasion and a 30% glycolic acid peel.''
 75ml is £36.

Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher Review.

Hi Lovelies,
I'll be reviewing Estee Lauder's Idealist pore minimizing skin refinisher. I have recently been using this product & I'm really impressed. I apply one pump of this serum onto clean skin under my usual moisturiser (it sinks into the skin really well). It makes my skin feel silky soft, visually my pores look smaller & my skin looks clearer.

It smells like lemon, very refreshing. This is great as a primer under your make-up, as it really improves the texture of skin. I would recommend the skin refinisher to any woman of any age, you won't be dissapointed. Dermatologist tested, Ophthalmologist tested & Non Acnegenic (this will suit even the most sensative of skin).  I have a combination skintype (oily t-zone & dry cheeks) so this serum is perfect.

 What Estee Lauder say: Virtually poreless, unbelievably soft & smooth, incredibly clear. 30ml is £40 & 50ml is £54 there is also a 75ml size exclusive to department stores. This may seem expensive but a little goes a long way. When used for about four weeks you will start to see a difference. I am really pleased with the results. This is such a multi-use product that everyone should buy it.

Hi everyone,
I got some Nails inc polishes for Christmas & received this gorgeous free gift. I have just got around to swatching them. I thought i would share this with you. This gift box includes shades that are really me. They are just stunning, so generous for a free gift. The colours are: Shepherd street (Blue, Purple & Silver Glitter), Devonshire street (Silver Glitter), Bruton lane (Burgundy) & Caviar topcoat (Clear). 

Lush Mothers Day & Easter Haul.

Hi lovelies, 
Not another Lush haul! I'm sorry, I'm an absolute addict. I was running short on bath products, so i decided to buy some. I purchased: The immaculate eggception ballistic, Fluffy egg ballistic, Easter egg hunt soap, Madame butterfly bubble bar, Dragons egg ballistic, Sex bomb ballistic & Ultimate shine shampoo bar. The lovely Lush team included some samples i asked for: Handy gurugu hand cream, Ultrabland cleanser, Porridge soap & Big solid conditioner. I'll be reviewing the individual products for you.

Illamasqua Nail Polish Duo In Viridian & Glitterati.

Hi Guys, 
I recently bought some Illamasqua polishes. I got the duo in Viridian (Peacock green) & Glitterati (Raspberry glitter). I hadn't tried Illamasqua polishes before, but the shades immediately drew me in & id heard such great things about them. Delivery was quite quick, i received my item in three days. Overall i am very pleased, the colours are stunning & very easy to apply. I did some swatches so you could see how amazing the shades really are.This duo cost £24.

Lush: Butterball Bath.

Hi guys, 
I just had a butterball bath. I really liked this ballistic while it isn't the loveliest looking, it made my skin feel super soft with bits of cocoa butter. It's scented with vanilla & gives your bath a creamy colour. What was great it didn't leave me oily, i first thought it might. This is quite a simple ballistic with not many ingredients. Ingredients include: cocoa butter, musk, citric acid & ylang ylang oil. These are part of the permanent line & can be picked up at any Lush store.

Benefit High Brow Swatch & Review.

Hi lovelies, 
So i recently got a product from Benefit called High Brow. It's said to lift the whole eye area. It's a beautiful linen pink colour (An amazing high light colour). I have always wanted to try High Brow. This product is really easy to use, you just apply under your eyebrow & blend. I created a tutorial to show just how simple it is. I loved using this product, id say if you have another cream shadow (in a similar shade) then maybe you wouldn't need this in your collection. High Brow is £14 for 2.85g at any Benefit counter. Do you own High Brow? What do you think?

Benefit Fine One One Swatch & Review.

Hi guys,
Today i tried Benefit's Fine One One cream blush. I was quite intrigued when i first saw this on other blogs & Benefit's website. This has three colours: pink champagne, sheer watermelon & soft coral. I must admit i was abit sceptical being a cream blush version & lets be honest here this product isnt just a simple cream blush. I remembered the lovely girls advice at the Benefit counter. She told me to apply in a diagonal line straight from the apple of the cheeks to the temple. Then all that was left to do was blend & i had the perfect peachy cheek. I love the concept of this product what a smart idea & the colour is just gorgeous! You can apply this as natural or glamorous as you like. This costs £23.50 for 8g at any Benefit counter. 

Benefit Haul For £7.50!

Hi my lovelies! 
Yesterday i did a small Benefit haul. This cost me only £7.50 as my mum had some vouchers for House Of Fraser (Thanks Mum!). The lovely Benefit sales assistant tried some different products on me. I purchased Fine One One & High Brow in the end. I also received some great samples (Total moisture facial cream & Triple performing facial emulsion). I love the new additions to my Benefit collection. I will put up a review of both products. Have you tried Fine One One? What is your ''I can't live without it Benefit product''?
