My Skincare Favourites of April & End of the Month Empties.

In my last post, I shared my Beauty Favourites of April, which you can read here, so for today's post I wanted to share my Skincare Favourites. 

Check out my In Shower and Bath Favourites on my YouTube here.

My first skincare favourite is the Nivea Day Cream which I bought a couple of weeks ago. This is perfect for this time of year as it has SPF 15 in it and if I decide to use a foundation without SPF in it, this can protect my skin anyway. It’s so lightweight and doesn’t have that crumbly feeling on the skin that some sun creams or moisturisers do. It’s also quite cheap at £3.99 and the ‘normal and combination skin’ one has been really good for my skin ... I really recommend it. 

My next skincare favourite this month is Bio Oil. I use different oils on my skin every night, but I’ve recently started using bio oil and it’s really helped to sort out my skin, by getting rid of a lot of my acne scarring, the redness and helping to re-hydrate my skin and get rid of the dryness.

I’ve also been really loving the ELF Conditioning Lip Balm in Nice & Natural. I have been using this on and off for quite a few years now and it’s recently become my go-to again. It’s actually really pigmented and looks like a proper gloss, but it’s really light weight and creamy, without being sticky, which is perfect for the warmer weather as it keeps your lips soft and hydrated. I believe this has now been discontinued, but you may be able to find this on eBay!

You may have been me pick up the Garnier Refreshing Botanical Toner in my Drugstore Haul Post (read here) and I have been using it non stop since. I put this on after I've cleansed my skin and this re-hydrate and refreshes my skin, ready for the rest of my skincare routine. It's so soothing and Aloe is supposed to be good for your skin so I'm all for it!!

My last skincare favourite of April (before I get on to the End of the Month Empties) is the Boots Hydrating Day Cream SPF15 ... as you can probably tell by now, I'm a little obsessed with SPF Moisturizers. But over the few really hot days I started to use it again, as it's been part of my Summer Skincare Routine for a few years now. It's so lightweight, hydrating and works well under makeup or on it's own AND it doesn't crumble on the skin when mixed with other products (!!!)


End of the Month Empties:

Last month I decided to share an 'End of the Month Empties' Post, which seemed to be a really popular post, so I thought I would share another one this month.

Last Months EofME (here)

My first empty is the Nip & Fab No Needle Eye Fix, which I'm sure you've seen my write about on my blog throughout my time using it and I genuinely really loved this. I have really dry eyelids and under-eyes, but this helped to really keep them hydrated ... without the greasy feeling. It's also really good for getting rid of under-eye circles, puffiness and lines around the eyes and is actually perfect for what I want in an eye cream, so I will definitely be picking up another one!!

As much as I did like the GA-DE Cosmetics Triple Protection Night Cream, I felt that I did neglect it over the past few months when I was using a whole load of other products. I decided to use this up this month, although it is hydrating it is a little bit thick and does seem to crumble on the skin, which must be because some of the products in it may not work with some of the other products I'm using, but I'm not sure. I do feel like it does give the skin a good treatment over night and does really hydrate the skin.

My last empty of April is the EOS Passion Fruit Lip Balm and I LOVE these lip balms. They're so smooth and hydrating, which works perfect for my as I suffer from dry lips in the colder months and my lips burn easily in the warmer month so I always have one of these on me. They can be a little pricey at £6.50 but you should be able to find cheaper ones on Amazon or eBay!!

My Beauty Favourites for April!

    Here we are at the end of another month and it's time for one of my favourite posts ... My Monthly Favourites ... where I will be sharing with you all of the beauty products that I have been loving throughout the month of April.

I also shared 'My Current In Bath / Shower Favourites' on my YouTube Channel which you can watch here!


So let's start with the makeup bits first ...

My first favourite is the MAC Mineralize Blush in Just A Wisp, which I have been using for years now and never get tired of waking it out to use during the Spring and Summer. During the warmer months I go ham on the highlight and having a blush that gives a bit more of glow is something I really like. This one is quite pink and gives a real rosy glow ... although it is pigmented, it still looks good whether you use the slightest bit, or whether you build it up.

You can pick this up here!


My next favourite is the MAC Lipliner in Boldly Bare. If you know me, you'll know that I love a nude lip and recently this liner has become my go-to. It's a perfect liner to use with almost any lip lipstick or gloss and it's pretty similar to my natural lip colour, so I can over line my lips without it looking too unnatural. This Lip Liner is quite a warm nude and is perfect for any type of look.

Shop this here!


The next Lip Liner that I've started using more this month is the KIKO Lip Liner in shade 705, which is like a red-y orange and was perfect this past weekend with the warm weather. The pigment is so good that you only need to do one swipe, which makes it perfect to use on it's own as well. I really recommend these lip liners and they retail for only £2.50, which is perfect if you want a really good lip liner, without paying for a high end one. 


Next up is the Flique Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in the shade In The Nude, which is a warm toned, almost orange-y nude and it's so different to anything else I have in my collection. You may have seen me using this in my videos and talking a lot about it on my blog recently and it’s definitely my new go-to nude. You can read my review here to see my full thoughts.

Shop here!


My last beauty favourite for this month is The Body Shop Liquid Lip in the shade Cali Gerbera, which is also an Orangey red and this is a perfect lip colour to wear on top of the KIKO Lip Liner. If you've seen  my latest YouTube video, you would have seen me wearing this and I can't wait to continue wearing it thorough out the summer. You can also see my full review on these Lip Liquid's here! These are only £7 and they currently have 30% off which you can click below to take a look at.

You can buy this here!

I will be sharing my Skincare Favourites & End of the Month empties in my next post, as I didn't want this one to be too long, so make sure you're there if you would like to see them!

My Makeup Collection Part 4 | Bronzers & Contour Products!


Today's post is part 5 of  my Makeup Collection series and this time it's all about the Bronzers' and Contour Products!

Benefit Hoola Lite: 


I then have the Benefit Hoola Lite Bronzer, which is still quite new to my collection, but I’ve been really liking it. This had been on my wishlist for months and months until I was lucky enough to receive it for Christmas, and it did not disappoint. I really like how the Bronzer is slightly more pale that the normal Hoola and this just works really well for my skin tone. This works to Bronze up the skin but as it’s quite light it also can be good for contouring as it casts the shadow under my cheekbones and down the sides of my nose. All though this is pretty pricey, I would really recommend it and would say that it’s worth every penny. 

You can pick this up here!

W7 Honolulu:

Next up I have the W7 Honolulu Bronzer, which is a dupe for the Benefit Hoola. Usually this bronzer is a little too orange for me, but when I have a tan it becomes my go to. This retails at just £5.95, but I'm sure you can pick it up for cheaper on eBay or Amazon and they also have a loose powder version. Although this bronzer is really pigmented, if you use the slightest amount you can create a really nice blended bronze, without it being too harsh ... and also this make it last longer as you're not using a lot at one, so there's a plus!! If W7 bring out a Hoola Lite dupe, I will be all over it!!!


Check it out here!

NYX Blush - Taupe:


I'm sure you've seen me mention this one a lot on my blog, but this is the NYX Blush in Taupe, which I use to contour. As it's such a cool toned brown shade, it works really well to cast that shadow underneath your cheekbones and down the sides of your nose to give your features more definition. I believe this is a good dupe for the MAC Blush in Swiss Chocolate, which I have been wanting to try for soo long but I think this works well enough. And it's like a 1/4 of the price of  the MAC one so I really recommend it!!


Take a look here!

L'Oreal Infallible Sculpt Contour Palette:


I  have had this contour palette for soo long now but I don't think I've ever used it, other than a few swatches. I don't usually like cream products as they don't really work with my skin, if that makes any sense at all. Although these come out very full coverage, they seem very buildable and don't seem to look as if they'd be cakey,  but when I use this, I would use a damp beauty blender to take away any of the excess product.  

Shop this here!

Revolution Bronzer:

This is another product that I've hardly used ... which is ~SO~ bad ...  but it's because it's very warm toned, and a little bit orange, so I only use this as and when I have a tan. Although if it is blended well I can make it work, even if I'm not tanned. Considering this bronzer is only £3, the pan size of the product is big and it'll last soo long! If you've got a darker skin tone than me, I think that this would be perfect for you!!

Link is here!

W7 Bronzing Base:

Although I'm not usually that keen on cream makeup products, this product is an exception haha!! I did do a full review on this, so if you want to hear my full thoughts click below. I love how well this blended out, making you feel like hardly wearing any makeup, which is perfect for the summer and I can't wait to use this more over the next few months!

Review Post here!
Buy here!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer:

The last bronzer in my collection is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer which you're all probably tired of me talking about, but this is hands down my all time favourite bronzer! It's so creamy (hense the name) and easy to blend ... it's also super lightweight, so you don't feel caked in makeup, which again is perfect for the warmer months. I use the 'light' bronzer, which is the perfect shade for me, but it's still warm toned so it gives me that bronze-y glow that we all so desperately want!

*SHOP THIS POST*

So there you have it, my bronzer collection ... Part 5 will be up next week so if you haven't read my other 3 posts, make sure to catch up if you want!

New In: Makeup Haul | Revolution, NYX & More!


The other day when I went into London, I picked up a few new makeup bits to try out and I thought I would share them with you all. I will be doing a YouTube video using these products for a First Impressions makeup look. 

NYX HD Finishing Powder - Banana:


The first item that I picked up was the NYX HD Banana Finishing Powder which I have heard really good things about. I've been wanting to try out a banana powder for soo long, since I used up all of the one in my Revolution Contour Palette, but I haven't been able to find one thats not too dark or yellow for me and this one looks perfect for my skin tone. 

NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick - Ruffle Trim: 


I tried one of these liquid lipsticks out a couple of years ago, but I wasn't too keen on the colour and after hearing so many good things about this colour, I was all over it. If you know me, you'll know that I LOVE warm toned nudes and this one is perfect for me. I can't wait to start using it and I already know that this will be my go-to, everyday nude this Spring/Summer.

Revolution Soph x Eye-shadow Palette: 


This palette was another item on my wishlist that I picked up. I'm obsessed with Revolution products  so I have high hopes for this. This palette also has a really nice shade range so it'll give me the option to get out of my comfort zone. I'm really exited about this palette and if I love it (which I'm sure I will) you will be seeing a lot of it on my blog.

Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter - Peach Lights:


I then picked up the Revolution Vivid Highlighter which I have been wanting to try out for soo long. I have heard so many different things about these and as they had a 3 for 2 deal  on I thought why not?! I have the Revolution Blush Palette which has a couple of highlighters in and they're incredibly creamy and pigmented so I have high hopes for this one. 

Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick - F1:


I have heard so many good things about this foundation and it has been on my wishlist for so long so I thought I would try it out. I will be doing a first impressions/review on this foundation over on my YouTube Channel so if you would like to see that, don't forget to subscribe!! I picked up the lightest shade (F1) so I'm hoping this doesn't oxidize.

Primark PS Love Rose Perfume:


The last item I picked up was the Primark Love Rose Perfume which was only £3.50. I just decided to spray it as it was a tester and it smelt soo good that I thought I would just pick it up for a new everyday perfume. Perfumes are one of the things that I like to spend my money on, but using an expensive perfume everyday isn't a very good idea, especially when I like to spray a lot many times a day. So the fact that I've found a really nice one for soo cheap is just perfect!! I don't know what the wear is like with this but, considering the price, I wouldn't mind topping it up throughout the day/night.

*SHOP THIS POST*



So there you have it there are all the items that I picked up. I really hope you enjoyed this post and I'll see you in my next one!

THIS TIME NEXT YEAR.


As you may know I love doing TAG posts on my blog, so I thought that I would do the This Time Next Year TAG for today's post. I hope you enjoy! I haven't actually been tagged to do this, but I haven't seen bloggers do this TAG for a while so I thought I would just do it anyway!


Here are the rules:

Thank the person who tagged you.

Write your goals for next year.

Write how you’re going to achieve your goals. (If you can)

Tag at least 5 bloggers to share their goals.

Then if you wish in 365 days write a post for everyone to see if you have been successful or not!


My Goals!


This Time Next Year:  I will have bought myself my first car!

I have had my Drivers Licence for over a year now, but still haven't been able to buy my first car, so I hope to be able to do so within the next year.


This Time Next Year: I will finish my MUA College Course with a Distinction!

I have been doing quite well in my college course and am well on my way to getting a distinction, so fingers crossed.


This Time Next Year: I will have a full-time job that I like.

I haven't been able to get a full-time job yet as I'm still at college, but I really want to find a job that has some what to do with what I eventually want to end up doing, which is within Beauty and maybe an MUA.

My second and third goals go together really and I can't really achieve one without the other. I hope to be able to do these by doing well in my college course, to then have the grades to go on to do what I want to do.


This Time Next Year: I will have at least one tattoo!

I have always wanted a tattoo either on my ankle or on my thigh but I haven't been able to find a design that I'm dead set on, so I hope I can decide soon.


This Time Next Year: I will have ticked a few more things off of my Bucket List!

Almost a year ago I uploaded my Bucket List post onto my blog and have been able to tick a couple of things off, but I really want to start ticking off a whole lot more.

My Bucket List (click here)

I'm looking into being able to tick some of my goals of my Bucket List at the moment and I'm confident that I should be able to tick some things off.


This Time Next Year: I will be ready to move out!

I really want to move out, or at least be in the position to start moving out, this time next year and I'm looking to move closer to London. Not necessarily in London but deffo surrounding areas so that I can get into Central quicker.

I will do this by saving hard as soon as I've managed to get myself a full-time job.



I Nominate!

My Makeup Collection Part 3 | Brow Products!


Welcome to part 3 of my Makeup Collection post's and today I'm going to be sharing one of the smaller collections of mine which is my Brow Products! 

If you haven't seen my first two posts of the series you can find them here.

MAC Fluidline Brow Gel Creme - Deep Dark Brunette:

The first brow product in my collection is the MAC Fluidline Brow Gel Creme and this is my favourite in my collection and probably my favourite one I’ve tried. I think this works so much better than powders because it doesn’t sit on the brow hairs and because it’s a creamy consistency, it looks a whole lot more natural on the brows when you’re drawing hair like strokes. I also really like that you can build this up to make the brows look bolder, which is perfect for more glam looks! Although this is pretty pricey, at £17.50, it lasts so long. I have had this since the beginning of July last year and 9 months later there still well over half the product left!!

Natural Collection Brow Tidy:

Next up I have the Natural Collection Brow Tidy and this has been my savior the past few months. As I haven’t had my brows done in quite a while my brows aren’t looking too good, but this sets each brow hair in place before doing my brows so this makes it easier for them to look more defined and in place. I did want to try the ABH one but as this was like 10% of the price (£1.99) I was much more drawn to this and it’s so helpful!!

Sleek Brow Kit:

This Sleek Brow Kit has been a major staple in my makeup collection since I was in High School. I used to really like it as it has both a powder and a wax so you're able to decide on the day weather you want more natural looking brows or more defined brows or you can use both of them together for even more bold brows. I use the Medium Brow Kit as the wax is quite dark, however the powder is more of a warm brown which I don't really like too much as you get reddish brows, but I mainly use the wax anyway. I think I like this wax a little bit more than the MAC Brow Gel Creme as it's a lot smoother and more wet (if that makes any sense) so it applies a whole lot easier and the product is really blend-able. I would really recommend this, especially if you're trying to start up a makeup collection. 

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil:

The next brow product that I have in my collection is the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil which I have in Shade 4. Although this is one of the darkest shades (not the darkest) it doesn't come out really dark, especially if you apply it with a light hand, so it can still look fairly natural just more defined. However, if you do want more defined, bold, brows you can build the product up nicely. Also because the tip of the pencil is flat and think it works really well to get the shape right and to be more precise when applying the product. Although this is pretty pricey (£20.50) it does apply really well, it's waterproof, it says on and doesn't smudge and it lasts quite a while, so I would say that it's worth the money but I am sure that you can find something similar for much less. E.g. The Soap and Glory Brow Archery Pencil works really well and it's only £8. (link here)

Natural Collection Clear Mascara:

As you can tell by now, Natural Collection is probably one of my favourite drugstore brands, not just because it's so cheap but they're actually really good quality. I use this clear mascara as a brow gel, not for any particular reason other than that the clear brow gel was sold out once so picked up the mascara and I've never really gone back. The only downside is that the wand is a little bit big so can go onto the skin, but that is expected as it's a mascara wand and as it's clear it doesn't really make a difference to the skin.

Natural Collection Brow Gel - Dark Brown:

Now this Brow Gel does work pretty much the same as the Clear Mascara, also from Natural Collection, however it does work probably better as the wand is smaller, so fits on the brows perfectly without getting any of the gel on the skin ... which obviously works better for the brows than the clear mascara. Although I don't use this very often, because I think it makes the brows look cakey and almost like there's too much product on them, I do like the way it sets the brows in place all day/night and I usually only wear with more glam looks as it doesn't look ~SO~ bold then ... but again for £1.99 I can't really complain. 

Revolution Brow Palette:

The last item I have in my Brow Products collection is the Revolution Brow Palette, which I was unsure whether to save for my palette post, but I thought it would be better to add it into this one. I don't really use this palette as much as I should, but as it's so convenient I know it's going to be so convenient when I go on my holidays. This palette has 3 different wax's, 5 powders and 1 brow highlight powder all with lots of different shades from blonde-y colours to dark brown ... which makes this palette ~SO~ perfect for pretty much everyone! Also as their are different brow colours in the palette, you're able to easily use a couple of different colours in order to make almost ombre brows, so that the front of the brows can be lighter than the tail. As well as all of this, this can also be used as an eye  shadow palette and create a smokey eye with it ... it's just ~SO~ versatile and I'm sure you'll really like this. I'm not sure if they still sell this but I have found a similar one and have linked it below or here.

My Makeup Collection Part 2 | Concealers!

Today I will be sharing part 2 of my makeup collection which are my Concealers! If you know me concealers are up there with one of my favourite parts of my makeup routine and collection so I’m very exited about this post. I hope you enjoy. 

Part One | Lip Wardrobe (here)

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer:

First up are the Revolution Conceal & Define Concealers and I have the two lightest shades C1 and C2. This Concealer has to be one of my favourite drugstore concealer as it just blurs our all my blemishes, doesn’t crease (as long as it’s set properly) and the shade range is really good so even us pale gals and guys can highlight the high points of our faces too. I have written a full review on this concealer which you can read (here) if you want to see all my thoughts. 


NYX HD Concealer:


I then have the NYX HD Concealer which I have been using on and off for a few years ago. I must admit it's not one of my favourites due to the poor shade range and the lightest shade being quite orange toned, but I think if the shade range was better that I'd like it a lot more. The coverage is decent, but still buildable and because it's quite a thin consistency and very lightweight, it doesn't look cakey or crease. If you can find a shade to match you, I think you'll really like this concealer.

LA Girl PRO Conceal:

The LA Girl PRO Conceal is another staple in my collection and I have been using it for years now. When I was in School this was my everyday concealer as it was so affordable but would last on the skin throughout the day without going patchy or creasing and it saved me from the dark circles. This concealer also has a very good shade range and I really couldn't recommend it enough.

MAC Pro Longwear:


This one is the newest to my collection and to be honest I'm not too sure on my thoughts. It's quite a heavy, thick concealer which I can only make work if I blend, blend and blend some more. I use a damp Beauty Blender to take away and of the excess product and then I usually bake with a light weight, translucent powder like the RCMA No Color Powder. I only wear this when I'm going for a full on glam look, but it does make the skin look flawless and for me thats what I need.

Bourjois Healthy Mix:


Bourjois ... again a staple drugstore brand for me (I think I've said that a lot now!) ... has a number of different products that I love and this concealer certainly is one of them. Bourjois' Foundations and Concealers all have a very yellow colour to them, which I really like as it cancels out any redness caused by my acne and works almost as a colour corrector. I also really like how it feels very thin, almost like an oily consistency (not in a bad way) that just sinks into the skin seamlessly. If this is used with the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation it works incredibly together (well obviously haha!) and I love this combo.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Concealer:


This is another concealer that you've probably heard me talk about on my blog, but I really like this concealer and I find that with the Breathable Foundation it create the perfect combo, one that's perfect for both everyday looks and more glam looks. This is because they're so lightweight and let's the skin breath ... hence the name ... but they also have really good coverage. The shade range of these foundations isn't the best (there's about 6 shades) but I've managed to find a shade that works for me so I'm not complaining. 

Maybelline Fit Me:


The main reason that I picked up this concealer is because so many people said that it was a good dupe for the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and I couldn't really justify spending £24 on a concealer so I thought if I can find a cheaper version then I should try that instead. I do like this concealer, but I wouldn't rush back to buy it ... not that it isn't good but I just have other concealers that work the same, if not better. There are quite a few shades in this concealer (I believe there's 11) but the lightest shade is still a little bit dark for me. Aside from the things I dislike about it, I do really like the coverage as it's not too heavy, but still does mask under eye circles and any super red spots which I am here for. 

Natural Collection Cover Up Cream:


Natural Collection products have been part of my collection since I was about 11/12 when I was first getting into makeup and they will always be a staple for me. I used to use this just because it was cheap (£1.99) but I still use it every now and then because it is actually good and the way it works doesn't actually look 'cheap'. The only downside is that there are only 3 shades so not everyone would be able to use this. I can see that Natural Collection have changed their packaging and upped their prices (only to £2.49) but I'm not sure if the concealer is still the same so I'll have to pick it up when I next run out of this.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer:

Now you probably all know about my love for this concealer, so I've saved the best until last. Before I finally caved and purchased this, I was a bit put off the price because I didn't want to spend the best part of £20 on a concealer, but now I can see that it's performance does reflect the price. Although it's super full coverage, it doesn't look or feel cakey and your skin can still breath as well. It also feels super lightweight and if set right, it doesn't crease and the under eyes look flawless and smooth all day.

Thankyou so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed!


Until Next Time,
Luci

End of the Month Empties!


Throughout the month of March I tried to use up some of my products to then be able to clear out my makeup and skincare collection, and then try out some new products. I managed to finish up a few products, so I wanted to share 'my empties' and my thoughts on them, with you all.


Mario Badescu Rose Water Facial Spray:

Let's start with one of my favourites because I just can't wait to share my love about this. I know I've spoken about this a lot on my blog and you're probably tired of me talking about it, but if you haven't tried this yet, this has to be next on your wishlist. I just love how refreshing it is and it can be used before moisturiser, after makeup and even just throughout the day to freshen up. I've been really liking this and use it many times a day ... but has still lasted me a good 3, maybe 4 months. Rose Water is said to be really good for the skin and I've noticed how it's toned down the redness in my skin. If you're skin is oily and find it difficult to use moisturiser, but still want to take care of your skin, this would be really good for you as it can keep your skin hydrated without making it even more oily.

La Roche-Posay Eye Makeup Remover:

I went through a stage about a year ago, of absolutely loving this stuff, but once I ran out I just went back to using Micellar Water. However, recently I saw it in Boots and wanting to start using it again. I actually forgot how much I liked it and within a few weeks it was gone again!! The reason why I like this so much is it swipes the makeup away so quickly and easily, but also don't pull on the eyes or dry the eye area out ... which I find a lot of other makeup removers do. It can seem a little pricey at £11 (currently on sale here)


Lottie London Ready SET! Go Translucent Powder:

Next up is the Lottie London Loose Powder which I bought again about a year ago and really liked it, but then forgot about it when I started using the RCMA No Color Powder (which, again, you've probably heard me mention this a lot), but recently I found it in my collection and wanted to use it up. I instantly started to like it again because, as it's such a fine powder, it doesn't cake it just sinks into the skin whilst setting it at the same time. It's almost like it doesn't change the way your makeup looks at all or make it look dry either. This costs just £5.45, but it does last a while and works really well ... I would really recommend this!!

Nip and Fab Dragons Blood Hyaluronic Shot Serum:

I have been using this in my night time skincare routine for soo many months now. It's like an over night treatment and it really quenches your skins thirst and hydrates it. I put the serum into my First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and use this combo as my night cream. It also helps to thin out the moisturiser, which helps to not clog the pore and causing more breakups and just hydrates the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is also said to be really good for the skin as it hydrates the skin, helps with anti-aging and also helps with the growth of collagen. 

Scandinavia Makeup Setting Spray:

Last, but not least I have the Scandinavia Setting Spray which I have been using for years now and I just can't get rid of it because it's just that good. Recently, Beauty Bay have started stocking it so I don't have to get it shipped from America and it works out cheaper. The scent isn't necessarily the best, it's not that it's bad I'm just not a big fan of it. This works as both a primer and a setting spray (I use it for both anyway) and it really helps take the powder look away from the skin, but also keeps it set and natural looking. It also gives the skin a lovely glow and it just finishes off any look really well. I know you'll all love this too!
