I needed a little pick me up!

Whenever I am feeling a little low I always find a way to cheer myself up, whether it’s actually buying anything or just having a little browse around. This time around I did go out with the intention to buy some new makeup, however, I couldn’t find anything that I really wanted or needed, so I stuck to looking for skincare. All of these I managed to get from Superdrug:

Barry’M Lip Scrub – £4.99

Olay’s 2 in 1 Hydration and Radiant Glow Cream – £9.99

Olay’s 2 in 1 Hydration and Flawless Blur Cream – £9.99

Vitamin E Gentle Oatmeal Exfoliator – £2.99 

Vitamin E Dual Phase Cleansing Oil – £2.99 

Garnier Micellar Extra Gentle Cleansing Wipes – £3.45 

Then I also nipped into a Wilkinsons for a bin for home when I started looking at stationary. I’ve been wanting to buy a cute little project pad for when I am out and about and I get ideas for blogs posts in my head, I absolutely hate not being able to write them down straight away and then forgetting about them. That’s where I found this adorable little notepad with 4 tabs inside it, each tab has a little saying on it which gives me a smile each time I read them. I also bought some pens to go alongside and I simply only chose this because they reminded me of my childhood!

What do you do when you are feeling a little low?

L’Oréal: True Match Foundation…

Foundations.. Where do I start with them, I am highly fussy when it comes to my foundation. I generally stay away from buying new foundations as when I have I don’t seem to like them and they stay sat on top of my mirror until I decide to go back to them to try again and give them a second chance. Another problem I seem to have is I can never seem to find the right colour for me sometimes I can get it accurate and then sometimes it’s completely different to my skin tone.

However, with L’oreal True Match foundation I think its perfect for me and I will always go back to it after I have tried another one out.

Price: £9.99 – I really don’t think you could go wrong with the price it’s not too expensive if you are on a budget. I know there are cheaper ones out there but I think this is a perfect foundation so I would always pay this price for a foundation that gives me everything I need.

Coverage: I find that the coverage for this foundation is actually perfect for me. You can make it a little coverage or a full coverage if you would want to. Using a sponge and dabbing it around your face very lightly using the minimum amount can give you that even coverage so it will barely look like you have any on. Then I have found if I use a foundation brush to apply the product and then get any excess off with the sponge you can get a higher coverage without your face looking caked in foundation.

Staying Power: Amazing –  I have found that this foundation has been through so much with me all the different types of weather and nothing seems to disturb it. I work long days and I have always wanted a foundation that lasts the day, not just a few hours. Without a doubt, this is the foundation that achieves that for me!

What’s your favourite foundation?
