Vichy Dermablend Foundation

Vichy Dermablend Foundation

Whenever I mention to people that I like my foundation to be high coverage, there is one name that always pops up: Vichy Dermablend foundation. I have been keen to try this product for a while – I am a big fan of Vichy skincare as it’s very gentle on my sensitive skin, so I had high hopes for their make up range. I was given this at an event a few months ago and I’m kicking myself that I didn’t try it out before now!

I have filmed a first impressions video so that you can see how well the foundation covers redness and so you can hear my initial thoughts on the texture, formula and application. There are also some bloopers at the end of the video if you fancy something to cheer you up!

Men Like Women Who Wear Less Make Up

 

Yesterday I woke up and did what I always do: I checked twitter. Commuter woes, politics, bad puns, cat photos… the usual. Then I saw that someone had retweeted this utter load of piffle into my timeline:

Want a sneaky peek into the new GOSH SS16 Collection? I have all the new additions here…

New GOSH SS16 Collection

GOSH SS16 Collection

I was super excited to be invited to the pre-launch viewing of the GOSH SS16 collection this week. The range launches on the 10th of Feb but I think there are a few must-haves here so make a note! I’ve updated the descriptions with links – go go go!

The range has a neutral, natural focus with a lot of nudes and subtle berry shades so this is a range that will appeal to, and suit, a lot of people.

La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur

When I was given the new La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur at an event I thought it sounded interesting but I was put off by the ‘BB’ aspect. I’m a huge fan of Japanese BB creams but the UK versions are a totally different beast: light coverage, dewy and nowhere near suitable for covering my rosacea redness. However, I am happy to say I was very wrong about this little tube of magic.

The things you need from Sephora

I get a lot of questions from people on Twitter and instagram about what I would recommend from Sephora. We don’t have the black and white store of dreams in the UK (anymore) so when people find themselves abroad and in store… it can be a bit overwhelming. So I am here to help, with my recommendations of the things you need from Sephora.
