Laura Mercier Silk Crème Photo Edition Oil Free Foundation

Silk Crème Photo Edition Oil Free Foundation is one of the new long wearing foundations from Laura Mercier.

Created to seamlessly hide imperfections it creates a flawless canvas and offers a natural, matte finish.

Perfect for oilier complexions, the Silk Crème Photo Edition Oil Free Foundation is a lightweight and is if you hadn’t gathered from its name, an oil free formula.

Despite its light texture it provides full coverage, for when you need to hide those little (or big) imperfections without clogging your skin.

In fact, its silk powder blend helps absorb oil while balancing the moisture of your skin so you  needn’t worry about becoming a shiny mess any time soon!

It has a matte finish, which may scare some people who worry about their skin appearing dull or lifeless but this isn’t the case. The finish simply removes any excess shine, leaving a flawless, beautiful base for the rest of your make up.

I would say that if you have combination skin like I do, make sure you moisturise the drier areas of you skin thoroughly first to avoid any flaky looking patches.

I really liked using this foundation and would say it’ll be great for the warmer summer months thanks to its light texture and ability to provide up to 12 hours of wear.

Bit of a winner if you ask me!


Burberry Lip & Cheek Bloom

Lip and Cheek Bloom is the versatile new product from Burberry comprising of six complexion enhancing colours for lips and cheeks.

 Inspired by the radiant hues of an English country garden, each Lip & Cheek Bloom can be used alone or blended together to create a customisable blush of colour. 

I blinking love a multi use product and I also love matching blush and lip sets so this is right up my street!
Designed to give buildable colour from subtle to intense and with a velvet texture that is transparent on the skin and gives a soft matte finish, they sound fabulous.

These lovely Lip and Cheek Bloom’s will be available to buy from June and will cost £24 each.

New Clinique Cheek Pop's

 They’re back and this summer Clinique have added four new gorgeous shades to their stunning Cheek Pop range.

Perfect and portable for effortless beauty on the go, Melon Pop, Pink Pop, Rosy Pop and Heather Pop are fabulous editions to the existing collection.

Offering a lovely natural blush look these Cheek Pops compliment all skin tones thanks to their ability to be built up with absolutely no trace of chalky powder or buildup on cheeks.

Its true too, no matter how much product I use to create a really vibrant look, the powder is so silky and soft it retains a gorgeous and natural appearance.

I got to play around with Melon Pop and Pink Pop and I’m so glad these are here to stay as they are just divine.

Melon Pop may look rather orange in its Perspex case but it is a gorgeous, soft and really natural looking coral when applied to your skin.

It looks perfect with just a hint of bronzer for a light and natural look that lasts all day.

Pink Pop is just a totally fabulous colour, going from the palest pink when applied lightly to a bolder yet gentle pink when built up.

When I wear them, they feel so light on my skin it’s as if I’m not wearing a blush, which I love, especially in summer when you don’t want your skin to feel clogged or powdery.

Well done Clinque, your new additions are simply perfect.

Clinique’s range of Cheek Pops are available now and can be found in stores and online now where they cost £16.50 each.

Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons are one of my new obsessions.

Newly launched and available in 6 gorgeous and wearable shades, they have once again succeeded in harnessing the power of nature to create these 100% natural lip crayons.
