Well I have a different kind of post today. It is about my acne and a product I tested to try help it out.
I mentioned this in my Top 5 LUSH products post just this week. It is one of a kind. I am about to share some rather honest pictures so look away if you're easily offended.
My skin is oily in the t-zone area and can be dry elsewhere. It is also quite sensitive and I have redness on my jawline that can sometimes be quite visible. I use to have acne prone skin when I was a teenager and into my early 20's.
I will link to the LUSH website where you can see ingredients etc at the end.
I had noticed several blackheads on my face and really didn't want them to sit there and become worse so I decided to try this product. It straight away smells like Witch Hazel and Tea Tree which I like, it's an almost clean smell. It feels like a gel and as it dries you can feel it tighten over the designated area. This disappears when you apply moisturiser.
When I fi…
Hey loves, So last week, I think, I asked Norvina if she would answer some questions for my lovely little blog. It was a cheeky ask but she said yes and gave me an e-mail address almost instantly. Love that. So, if you're reading this and thinking 'who is this lady?' or even worse 'what does she do?' then please take a seat and get with the programme. Norvina is the creator of all things contour, lips, eyes and concealing. If you follow her on Instagram then you will notice her constantly testing out products.
So here are the questions.. (I am still slightly fan girling) Everyone has been falling head over heels for your company. From the eyebrows to the contour kits and now liquid lipsticks. I know you have some brushes and concealers for sale, will there be expansions with those or even into the foundation world at some point? Yes that's the ultimate goal is to expand to the entire face. We have to pace ourselves for a multitude of reasons, and hopefully keep ou…
Want to know what I think is better from popular brand NYX?
I am a huge fan of NYX. I love that whilst they have some dupes for higher end products they have a tonne of their own original products.
The Soft Matte Lip Creams are an almost moussey feeling lip cream. I mean they don't call it a cream for nothing. I would highly recommend using a lip balm previous to applying this product. It dries matte so if there are any dry patches, it will sink into them. Whilst on the lips I would let it dry and apply as many coats as you like. I would typically use two. Whilst the colour is a vibrant hot pink (Addis Ababa) it can be sheered out to your preference. I find that these stay on the lips for up to four hours.
Now, I have heard a lot about the hyped Butter Glosses. When NYX was released in Ireland earlier this year I decided to try one. I gave into the hype (oh no!). There was quite a selection but opted for Peaches and Cream, a gorgeous pinky coral. I hadn't and still haven't…
