ZAO Silk Foundation Review and Swatches

 

ZAO Silk Foundation

 

OK, so while the packaging of a foundation shouldn’t really be important, the ZAO Silk Foundation just looks incredible! However, packagine does not reflect the quality of a product – so let’s jump in and see if this really is as good as it looks! ZAO products are free from Parabens and Toxic Preservatives, and – obviously – Cruelty Free!

 

ZAO Silk Foundation

 

ZAO Claims:
The light texture of ZAO Silk Foundation applies easily and meets the needs of those who like a luminous complexion with full coverage and a natural finish. Besides organic silica contained in bamboo hydrosol, organic sweet almond oil, jojoba and shea butter give this foundation a nourishing effect. It has a mattifying finish and uniform coverage for a long lasting coverage throughout the day.

 

 

ZAO Silk Foundation

 

The first thing that strikes me with this foundation (other than the gorgeous packaging of course!) is the beautiful texture that I can only describe as “silky”. It almost feels like a moisturiser, it is SO light and creamy. I find applying this with a damp sponge gives the most flawless finish, although it does blend beautifully with a brush too. This foundation is described as “strong coverage”, and it really is incredible how something so light can do so much! Definitely a full coverage foundation, but it doesn’t look cakey!

ZAO Silk Foundation SwatchesI would say there is a demi-matte finish to this foundation that keeps it looking completely natural. The shade range is fairly decent with 9 shades – I have the shade “Light Sand” which is absolutely perfect for my yellow-toned pale skin. I must say though, even if you aren’t sure on your exact shade match this product is so blendable that it would be so easy to make it work regardless!

In regards to the packaging I have probably said enough, but just in case…. This is frosted glass with a pump applicator – and the bamboo lid!? Just amazing. While the glass is probably not the most travel friendly, it feels and looks absolutely stunning on display and really doesn’t seem that heavy! Mine also came in a cute little case too!

ZAO Silk Foundation

 

 

Price wise the ZAO Silk Foundation is at the higher end of what I would normally be willing to spend on a foundation – £34.95. While I wouldn’t usually use a more expensive foundation on an every day basis and would probably save it for special occasions, a little goes a very long way with this – one pump is enough to cover my entire face – so this will last for SUCH a long time even using every day! (Plus I do have a discount code below!)

 

 

 

With such an incredible finish and with so little product needed, the ZAO Silk Foundation really is an absolute joy! In my opinion this is definitely worth spending some extra pennies on, I see it as more of an investment! Beautiful packaging for a beautiful product!

Maui Moisture Curl Quench

 

Maui Moisture is a brand I came across in Superdrug (I will admit it was the packaging that caught my attention!) and I instantly began researching their position on animal testing. As you can imagine, I was beyond excited when I found out that not only are they cruelty free, but they are vegan, gluten free, sulphate free, silicone free, everything free! As a curly girl (another note is that all of the ingredients seem to be CG Method approved if you are a follower of the Curly Girl Method!), I dove straight in and bought the Maui Moisture Curl Quench Collection and couldn’t wait to get started. So let’s go!

 

Maui Moisture Curl QuenchMaui Moisture Claims:
“Rich coconut oil is blended into this creamy gentle *collection along with papaya butter and plumeria extract. It helps detangle, defrizz and define your curls while enhancing softness and body for shiny, bouncy curls, coils or waves.”

 

So I will admit this was one of the first curl specific collections that I used in the beginning of my curly journey, before I properly knew how to manage my curls – so the finished results on my hair weren’t all that different to look at. What was instantly different however was how my hair felt. My hair loves to tangle so in the past I have had to use a ridiculous amount of conditioner or even constant hair masks to try and work through it. But literally straight away – and just with the shampoo – my hair felt nowhere near as tangled as it normally would, and following with the conditioner my fingers practically glided through my wet hair – this was impressive!

Maui Moisture Curl QuenchA little further down the line and I have tried different techniques on managing my curly hair, and I must say this magnificent duo still remains my go to combo on wash days. My hair is left so clean and soft, but not heavy or weighed down – and most importantly of all it feels moisturised and tangle free!

 

The scent of this collection is absolutely amazing. A mix of buttery scents and coconut, it is like a tropical haven! I have recently added the Maui Moisture Curl Quench Coconut Smoothie – and so far so good – very good. It takes this process to a whole new level and enhances the beautiful scent that lasts in the hair for days (unless your styling products are strongly scented in which case make sure they get along!).

The other thing I love about the Maui Moisture Curl Quench Collection is the price. Compared to other curl specific products this range is SO affordable! Both the shampoo and conditioner are priced at £8.99, and there are also regular offers and promotions to keep your eye out for. That being said, these bottles are pretty decently sized so depending on how often you wash your hair these should last a good while!

 

Overall, I really can’t find any negative points about this collection. The only thing that would improve it would be to add in a hair mask or some styling products, but as a wash day collection these will remain in my go to products for the foreseeable future! Just gorgeous!!

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer Review & Swatches

 

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define

 

I have finally got my hands on the hyped up Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer! These concealers were a pretty big launch from Makeup Revolution, and some are describing this as a dupe for the infamous Tarte Shape Tape Concealer (which is considerably more expensive!). So! Let’s dive in!

 

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define

 

Makeup Revolution Claims:
The concealer for everyone. 25 shades ranging from fair to deep, in cool, neutral and warm undertones. Lightweight yet full coverage concealer to cover blemishes, even skin tone and counteract dark circles, with a matte finish that won’t settle or accentuate fine lines and pores. Long wearing intense pigment that can also be used to contour and add definition. Our large doe foot applicator allows for smooth application that won’t drag on the delicate skin under your eyes.

 

 

 

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Swatches

 

Firstly, I think the shade range needs to be mentioned again…. 25 shades!? Absolutely incredible! I found my shades quite easily as I already have the Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation (Full Review Here) so that is a pretty accurate guide, but Makeup Revolution do have full shade descriptions :

C0 – pure white. For the fairest skin tones.
C0.5 – For fair skin tones with a pink undertone
C1 – For fair skin tones with neutral undertone
C2 – For fair skin tones with yellow undertone
C3 – For fair skin tones with neutral undertone
C4 – For light skin tones with pink undertone
C5 – For light skin tones with golden undertone
C6 – For light/medium skin tones with neutral undertone
C6.5 – For light/medium skin tones with a yellow undertone
C7 – For medium skin tones with peach undertone
C8 – For medium skin tones with a golden undertone
C8.5 – For medium skin tones with a yellow undertone
C9 – For medium skin tones with a peach undertone
C10 – For medium skin tones with a golden undertone
C10.5 – For medium skin tones with a yellow undertone
C11 – For medium/dark skin tones with a golden undertone
C12 – For medium/dark skin tones with a neutral undertone
C12.5 – For medium/dark skin tones with a golden undertone
 C13 – For dark skin tones with a warm undertone
C13.5 – For dark skin tones with a neutral undertone
C14 – For dark skin tones with a cool undertone
C15 – For dark skin tones with a neutral undertone
C16 – For dark skin tones with a warm undertone
C17 – For dark skin tones with a neutral undertone
C18 – For dark skin tones with a warm undertone

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define

 

So! Once you have found your shades the fun really begins! The first amazing thing about these beauties is the packaging. Slightly “fatter” than typical concealer packaging but I love it! Plus this allows for the mega doe foot applicator which is honestly epic (and for some reason ridiculously satisfying to look at….). This combined with the rose gold detailing I think the packaging in general is pretty perfect.

 

 

 

I have the shades C0, C2 & C6. While it may seem like quite a jump between C2 & C6 these are actually my perfect shades depending on whether I have fake tanned or not! And as with their foundation stick I just mix them together when I am somewhere in the middle. I also picked up the white mixer just in case and this is SO stunning! I tend to like my concealer to look as natural as possible on a day to day basis, but when I am doing more of a full face of makeup mixing C0 with C2 lightens everything up to cover and highlight under the eyes.

 

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Swatches
(Left to Right) C0, C2, C6

Of course it doesn’t really matter what the packaging is like (or shouldn’t anyway..) and it comes down to the actual product. Thankfully, this concealer is genuinely beautiful. The application is a dream (again, super satisfying using the giant doe foot!) and the consistency is so creamy. As far as coverage goes for me it is bang on. It is fairly full coverage, but doesn’t completely blank everything out. It blends out beautifully – I just use my finger – and doesn’t crease or break up throughout the day. If you are looking for a concealer that literally covers everything then this layers up brilliantly. I wouldn’t necessarily go with more than 2 layers of this as it may start to look a bit cakey, but it is really easy to build up. It does dry down fairly quickly so bare that in mind too.

 

 

Overall, I am obsessed. At £4.00 – yes, £4.00, the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer is absolutely genius. It is so easy to customize the coverage of this and the shades match perfectly. Even when building up the coverage it still looks natural! It really is just fabulous – more please!!!!

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation Review & Swatches

 

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation Swatches

 

So here we have another new addition to my foundation collection. The PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation is described as being full coverage with a natural finish – sounds incredible yes!? This is currently the only liquid foundation from the PHB collection, so let’s dive in!

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation

 

PHB Claims:
Skin nourishing liquid foundation that blurs the line between makeup and skin care. Made with organic ingredients that nourish and protect skin. Long lasting and full coverage foundation with a light and silky texture that won’t clog pores. Provides a natural looking flawless finish.

 

 

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation Swatches

 

This description sounds pretty epic! Any foundation that can also act as skin care is a winner in my book, so I couldn’t wait to give this a whirl. And I must say they are pretty bang on with the coverage and finish description. This is definitely on the thicker side of foundations, but it does blend out beautifully – although personally I find this works best over a dewy primer due to its thick consistency. It dries down fairly quickly too which is worth noting, but the finish is absolutely stunning! It is what I would call a “satin matte”. Not oily or particularly dewy, but it has a subtle sheen which gives a really gorgeous finish. It also doesn’t feel sticky at all, but at the same time it doesn’t feel powdery either! It just feels like super soft skin!

In regards to lasting power this is pretty impressive. After a full day it does tend to sink in to a few lines (which is normal for me) but what I love is it doesn’t start breaking up or getting patchy.

 

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation Swatches

 

The PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation comes in 6 shades which I know isn’t a huge range, but they all have fabulous undertones making them blend in with the skin easily. I have the shade Medium Rose, and this is perfect for when I have fake tanned! It does oxidize a little so bare that in mind too.

 

 

Price wise this foundation is in the middle at £19.95 (site wide discount code below!), but due to the coverage it gives a little goes a long way so this will last you well! The packaging I LOVE. It looks so clean and “green” – so simple but so beautiful.

PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation

So overall, I wouldn’t necessarily use this on an every day basis as I tend to steer towards a lighter coverage and BB Creams. However, for days when I want that extra coverage and a more flawless finish it is literally perfect! The finish is stunning and I can depend on this to last well. As a first impression of the brand too, the PHB Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation is definitely a very good start – I can’t wait to try out more of their collection!

Jasmine Rebecca “Butterfly Kisses” Candle Review

 

Jasmine Rebecca Butterfly Kisses

 

I came across Jasmine Rebecca on a recent holiday, and was instantly intrigued. She has a gorgeous shop in Polperro, and paired with the cobbled streets and beautiful surroundings it is so heavenly! Of course I had to have a nose, and obviously when I saw that everything is Cruelty Free (and Vegan) and also made using recycled glass –  I couldn’t resist picking myself up a candle to try out! So lets get into it!!

 

Jasmine Rebecca Butterfly Kisses

 

Butterfly Kisses – Wisteria, Orange Blossom & White Tea.
“The sweetest of all my candle collection, this is for those with a sweet tooth and penchant for chasing butterflies, and/or kisses 🙂 Playful, warm, sweet as a custard cream biscuit and a cup of tea!”

 

 

 

While I do typically look for candles with sweet scents, the smell of this candle is beyond words! I wouldn’t know quite how to describe it so I’m glad Jasmine has! Custard Cream is definitely a good description! It gives off a stunning subtle sweet scent even when not lit, but when lit the magic really happens.

Jasmine Rebecca Butterfly Kisses

 

This candle does come in 2 sizes, and had I realised just how much I would love it I would have bought the bigger one! The smaller size is £5.25 and the larger size is £10.00.

 

Obviously these are sold in her shop, but if you are not in the area or able to make the journey down south (although it is definitely worth a visit!) then fear not! This candle and the other scents are sold on her website, along with other scents, gifts and beautiful art.

 

 

A gorgeous shop that makes absolutely perfect gifts – even if you are just gifting yourself!

BWC Ultimate Natural Liquid Foundation Review & Swatches

 

BWC Natural Liquid Foundation

 

BWC (Beauty Without Cruelty) is a stunning Cruelty Free Makeup brand that is fairly new to my collection. The first product I am trying from them is the BWC Ultimate Natural Liquid Foundation, and we are off to a very good start!

 

BWC Natural Liquid Foundation

 

BWC Claims:
Ultimate Natural Liquid Foundation fortifies skin with a list of nourishing ingredients including Pentavitin for lasting deep hydration even under the driest conditions, jojoba and vitamin E to maintain the skin’s elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Rice bran wax also creates a smother application and finish. Build-able coverage allows you to customize your look from light to full coverage.

 

 

 

So skincare AND a foundation!? Double winner! BWC’s description is pretty spot on actually, this foundation is super hydrating – but not greasy or oily at all! I typically have combination skin which does tend to get a bit shiny throughout the day – but this lasts well!

BWC Natural Liquid FoundationThe coverage of this foundation is definitely a plus, it is so easy to build up to the coverage you would like without it looking cakey! When first pumping out the foundation it does appear to be quite thick (alarm bells went off in my head….) but this is so deceiving. As soon as I began blending into the skin it just melts into a beautiful “fluid” with a satin matte finish. There is a slight scent to it, I can’t quite put my finger on what it is – just a “clean” scent – but it is SO subtle that you’d have to be literally sniffing my face to even detect it.

 

BWC Natural Liquid FoundationThe shade range for this foundation is on the smaller side, but the undertones of all 5 shades are beautiful and seem to just blend in with the skin tone. I have the shade Light, and while this does already have a yellow base my skins undertone is actually even more yellow (not like a Simpson I promise..). That being said, I can still wear this foundation so easily without having to intermix other products in to make it match – it just blends and works!

 

Price wise this is pretty affordable on the scale of Cruelty Free foundations, coming in at £12.50 – although I do have a site wide discount code at the end of this post!

Overall, this is a great every day foundation – or even every night! The build-able formula is just genius and you can choose your desired coverage! As an introduction to the brand, the BWC Ultimate Natural Liquid Foundation has won me over, and I can’t wait to try more of their collection!

Eden Project – Beauty Review!

 

Eden Project Beauty

 

On a recent trip to the Eden Project, the last things I expected to come across were beauty products! Not just any beauty products, but Cruelty Free, Natural and Handmade beauty products – I know right!? It put the cherry on the top of a fabulous day there, and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in!

 

“Our bath and body products are packed full of natural essential oils and real ingredients that you’d find in your own kitchen cupboard. With packaging designed by our in-house artists here at Eden, they make the perfect eco friendly gift.”


 

Rosehip Moisturiser

Eden Project Moisturiser

 

“Our rose hip moisturiser contains high levels of vitamin A, C & F which is helpful for cell and skin regeneration. Made with essential oils and 100% pure ingredients this rose hip moisturiser feels rich and beautiful on your skin. Rosehips have one of the highest vitamin C content of plant sources along with lycopene which is also the most efficient oxygen and free radical quencher!”

 

 

 

Lavender & Honey Moisturiser

Eden Project Moisturiser

 

“Lavender & honey moisturiser good for revitalising dry or damaged skin. A classic blend of soothing lavender and healing Cornish honey combined with anti-ageing evening primrose, nourishing wheat germ oil and Vitamin E. Our moisturiser is gentle, antibacterial and perfect for calming and restoring the skin.”

 

 

 

Calendula & Beeswax Lip Balm

Eden Project Lip Balm

 

 

“Calendula is a popular skin healing herb and known for its gentleness. Calendula’s healing qualities can be beneficial for slow healing wounds, burns, eczema & inflammations on the skin.”

 

 

 


Eden Project Lip BalmAs a lover of lip balms, I couldn’t wait to try this. And wow – my lips are literally loving life. You can genuinely feel the quality of this lip balm, and it gave my lips moisture and softness that lasts. The consistency is more of a waxy balm than the traditional twist up sticks, and I love it. The jar is the perfect size for popping into a handbag, and at £3.50 for the amount of product and how long this will last it is so affordable!

 

 

Both of these moisturisers are just beautiful. I love “general” moisturisers that are not for specific areas, just for wherever needs a little TLC! I am tending to use these in my night time skin care routine, and I am loving the results. My skin feels so soft – and actually youthful – which is always a winner! The scent of these are what I love probably a little bit too much… The Rosehip 100% reminds me of a spa, and the Lavender & Honey is such a relaxing scent – they both smell so luxurious I feel pampered before I’ve even used them! These are £5.95 each, but at the time they had a promotion in store of 2 for £10.00.

I love jars as packaging, not only are they recyclable but I tend to reuse them for other things – they make great candles if you’re into making your own!

So on top of the Eden Projects already incredible and inspiring approach, they are taking the same approach into beauty products – and beautiful ones at that!

– The Perfect Body In A Bottle!?

E'Lifexir Natural Beauty

 

The E’Lifexir Natural Beauty Collection is definitely different to anything I have tried before – each product is individually designed to target specific areas of the body – so basically the perfect body in bottles!? Whether you want to go all in or just target something specific, there is a product for everything. There are 7 products in this range, meaning this is going to be lengthy post, so grab a cuppa and let’s dive in!

E'Lifexir Natural Beauty

“Welcome to the next generation of natural body care products – an ECOCERT Natural Cosmetic certified, VEGAN body care range with seven products each targeting specific parts of the body.

e’lifexir Natural Beauty is a new body treatment range created from natural and organic plant and fruit extracts.

Made with more than 99 per cent natural ingredients, all e’lifexir products have been dermatologically tested, are suitable for all skin types, and are hypoallergenic.

e’lifexir products contain NO parabens, acrylates, colourants, petrolatum, mineral oils, paraffin, silicones, PEGs, sulphates or artificial fragrances.”

 

While this statement doesn’t cover the fact that this brand is Cruelty Free – it is. To give these a go I went all in and used everything! So here’s a run down on each product, and my first impressions.


 

ACTIDREN Revitalising Leg Gel

E'Lifexir Natural Beauty“Black elder extract helps improve microcirculation and decongestion of the skin tissue to relieve tired and ‘heavy’ legs.
Rutin (a citrus flavonoid found in a wide variety of plants and fruits) and olive oil prevent and reduce the appearance of redness. Also contains natural cherry, cranberry and grape water, rich in antioxidants, which protect the skin from free radicals. Acticire (a natural, multifunctional active texture agent based on jojoba, mimosa, and sunflower waxes) ensures legs feel comfortable, relaxed and moisturised all day long.”

I LOVED this. As someone who is on my feet all day, I found this to be so soothing and had a “cooling” sensation that definitely made my legs feel lighter. The scent reminds me of floral herbs (if that’s a thing), and a bonus is that this is ultra moisturising – definitely one of my favourites.

 

ANTI-STRETCH MARKS Repairing and Preventing Cream

E'Lifexir Natural Beauty“Centella Asiatica leaf extract helps to increase the firmness and elasticity of the skin.
Scotch thistle extract helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks through a dual action, increasing both the elasticity and moisture levels of the skin, which stimulates the regeneration process. Natural cherry, orange and grape water, rich in antioxidants, improve the well-being of the skin’s protective barrier.”

This one was really difficult to pin down actually – in a good way. The scent was like floral veg – another strange description I know… it smelt so good! Another really moisturising product, and actually left my skin feel super toned and had a slight numbing effect when first applying.

 

BODYLIFT Anti-Cellulite and Lifting Cream

E'Lifexir Natural Beauty“Sundews leaf, a carnivorous plant, helps to smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Dragon eye extract protects the skin tissues through its antioxidant action and improves skin texture. Black elder extract helps improve microcirculation and decongestion of the skin tissue while cherry, cranberry and orange water help protect the skin.”

This one was a little thicker in consistency than the others, and I seriously liked it! It has a subtle cucumber scent, and I could definitely feel it tightening my thighs and generally making them appear less “wobbly”! Another of my favourites!

FITNESS Body Contouring Gel 

E'Lifexir Natural Beauty“Caffeine helps tighten the skin for a more sculpted looking figure.
Dragon eye extract protects the skin tissue and reduces fatty deposits. Black elder extract helps improve microcirculation and decongestion of the skin tissue while lemon, cranberry and orange water, full of vitamin C, boost the production of collagen, leaving skin smooth and glowing.”

As I was starting to run out of body parts by this point, I actually convinced my boyfriend to try this one out. It again has a floral herb type scent, and along with being super soft it did seem to tighten the skin. This recommends applying before working out to see this products’ full potential.

 

FLAT TUMMY Reducing and Firming Cream

E'Lifexir Natural Beauty“Caffeine helps tighten the skin for a more sculpted looking waistline.
Centella Asiatica leaf extract helps to increase the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Lemon, cherry and orange water, full of vitamin C, protect and soften the skin while olive oil helps reduce the signs of ageing thanks to its restructuring properties.”

This one grew on me. The scent started off “herby” but when applying actually ended up smelling quite fruity! It left my skin super soft and moisturised. I am quite fortunate that my tummy isn’t really my main concern (100% pear shaped over here!) so I did tend to concentrate more on the other products, but this one was definitely lovely if your tummy is you area of concern!

 

PUSH-UP BREAST Toning and Firming Cream 

E'Lifexir Natural Beauty“Oleoresin, extracted from guggul, an Indian tree, has a re-densifying action which adds volume to the skin.
Scotch thistle extract helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks through a dual action, increasing both the elasticity and moisture levels of the skin, which stimulates the regeneration process. Natural cherry, orange and grape water, rich in antioxidants, together with centella asiatica leaf extract, improve the skin’s firmness and tone.”

So while I am not particularly blessed in the breast area, I really liked this! So moisturising and left the skin ridiculously soft and supple (feels cringy saying that…). I also used this on my chest and neck and have a feeling it will be really good for slowing down signs of aging there too! Scent wise we still have that floral veg smell, another one of my favourites!

 

PUSH-UP BUTTOCKS Sculpting Gel

E'Lifexir Natural Beauty“Mate and stevia leaf extract help to redefine the look of buttock contours by smoothing the skin.
Scotch thistle helps to improve cell renewal and protects collagen, preventing and reducing the appearance of stretch marks. Black elder extract helps improve microcirculation and decongestion of the skin tissue, while cherry, cranberry and orange water provide antioxidants and protective benefits to the skin.”

So here’s the biggy – literally. This was the product I was hoping would come through – and it did! Similar to the BODYLIFT Cream, this had a tightening effect that definitely made everything alot less wobbly! A subtle gorgeous fruity scent, I loved this!

 

 

 


So there we have it! Whether these will literally give you a supermodel body it is too early for me to tell… But so far I am very impressed. As mentioned, my favourties are the Bodylift Cream, Actidern Leg Gel, Push-Up Breast Cream and Push-Up Buttocks Gel. All of these are priced at £15.99, and the packaging is so colourful but also so sleek!

So whether you are looking to improve the appearance of an area or two, or just want to go to town the E’Lifexir Natural Beauty products are just fabulous! I can’t wait to keep using these, so watch this space!!!

INIKA Liquid Foundation

 

When it comes to Cruelty Free Foundations I have previously been a little set in my ways and haven’t branched out to try new products – until now! And starting with the INIKA Certified Organic Liquid Foundation, I love the finish am so relieved that this is a success! A beautiful foundation, it is right up my street!

INIKA Claims:

INIKA Certified Organic Liquid Foundation combines natural antioxidants, minerals and Certified Organic ingredients to hydrate and illuminate the skin.

 

INIKA Liquid Foundation - Swatches

INIKA’s description of their Liquid Foundation is short and sweet, but nicely rounds up what this foundation is all about. The finish is absolutely stunning, somewhere between matte and glowy – this gives the perfect balance of illuminating the skin without getting oily.

 

I would say this foundation has a medium coverage, but is so buildable. It looks SO natural and lasts amazingly well, and at the end of the day it wears down so naturally – no patchiness or separating in sight! Just perfect!! The consistency is fabulous as for me it is bang in the middle – not too runny to slide all over the place, but not too thick either keeping the natural finish. It gives the coverage without the cake!

 

 

INIKA Liquid Foundation - NudeThere are 8 shades in this foundation, all of which will suit any skin tone perfectly. While this isn’t a huge range of shades, the undertones in them are perfect. I have the shade “Nude”, and while there is a small amount of oxidisation, this was actually a great thing as the shade works beautifully with my pale yellow-toned skin. They have pretty detailed shade descriptions on the website so it is super easy to match yourself up!

 

INIKA Liquid Foundation

This packaging is so chic! It is almost a frosted matte black and the gold detailing gives an extra edge of class. The pump applicator makes it so easy to use and avoids any mess or product wastage. I use one good pump and this covers my entire face. At £33.00, it isn’t the cheapest foundation I have tried, but in my opinion is definitely worth the extra pennies – plus MeiKind have kindly given me a site wide 10% discount code for you below!

 

 

Due to its consistency a little goes a long way, and even though this a new foundation for me I already know I can depend on this when I need my skin to look good and last! The INIKA Liquid Foundation is a beautiful product from a beautiful brand – and going on the quality of this foundation I can’t wait to try out some more products from their collection!

I first noticed Noughty on a random trip to Superdrug, and was instantly intrigued! Their packaging is so sleek, and there is a range to suit every hair type! While I do have curly hair, rather than opt for the obvious “Wave Hello” range – as my hair has been on the dry side lately I couldn’t resist this To The Rescue Collection. This range includes a shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and serum. So – I jumped in head first!


“Like a knight in shining armour, our 97% natural *collection comes charging to the rescue of dry and frizzy hair.”

Noughty To The Rescue

 

Noughty To The RescueSo if my math is correct, that’s 2 knights (shining armour included) and 2 fairytale endings! Who wouldn’t want that!? But in all seriousness, this collection is heavenely. The sweet almond scent is so luscious and these products feel genuinely luxurious. The shampoo lathers up like a dream and doesn’t leave hair feeling stripped or dry – just clean and soft. Personally I use hair masks in between shampoo and conditioner, and to be honest this hair mask literally did it all! Detangling is so quick and easy, and my hair feels like silk after just a few minutes. Following this with the conditioner is just the cherry on the top of a beautiful hair loving cake! Not a knot in sight, and my hair is left clean, moisturised and smelling incredible!

 

 

Noughty To The RescueAs I then use styling products suited to my curly hair (Wave Hello Taming Cream is now one of them!) I use the serum right at the end when my hair is almost dry – and wow. It doesn’t weigh hair down at all. I scrunch this into my ends and the finish it gives is stunning. It perfectly defines, smooths any flyaways or frizzy bits and gives amazing shine, and I use it again between washes each night before going to bed to prevent any frizz that may occur during sleep!

The obvious best part (other than everything I have just raved about!) is Noughtys’ commitment to not just being Cruelty Free, but their products and ingredients in general. “All our gorgeous products are packed full of goodness, vegan-friendly, contains no parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals or silicones and of course we don’t test on Bambi, Skippy or Lassie.” They have an entire page on this called “Bunnies Unite!“.

Noughty Cruelty Free

 

On top of this, they are so affordable! The Shampoo & Conditioner are priced at £6.99, and the mask and serum are £8.99. Depending on where you purchase from, there are also offers and deals so keep your eyes peeled! Currently you can buy direct from Noughty, Ocado & Superdrug – but they have also just confirmed they will be launching on Feel Unique before the Summer! There is a range literally for everyone, so go ahead and find your Noughty side!
