I’m not the greatest blogger, as we all know. However I thought I’d jump on the blogtober bandwagon and attempt to produce thirty one days of consistent content. I may be late to the party, nine days late, but it’s better late than never.
Day 1 – My latest beauty haul
I’ve ummed and ahhhed about buying this ever since it’s release. I’m not a massive bronzer fan but do love a good contour. Often referred to as Caspers wife (the friendly ghost) I’m definitely part of the pale but interesting club. The original Hoola bronzer is just too dark and has a tendency to create a look that’d happily camoflauge me as one of Willy Wonka’s Oompa Lumpas. I’m excited to play around with this, especially as the nights draw in and the sun dissapears.
Foundation. As we go into Autumn the summer tans, not that I ever really had one, tend to fade. The majority of beauty fanatics then realise they need to hit the makeup counters in search of their perfect paler shade.
Chanels Vitalumiere Aqua is a tried and true for my own everyday wear. I may stray and try others, especially for an event or night out. However I always go back to Chanel. It’s lightweight, applies easy and is buildable. Admitidly a bit pricey (£35), but worth every penny. I just wish it was a pump type bottle.
The Matte liquid lipstick is a fairly new release from them. Again it’s not the cheapest lippy on the market, but then this is Chanel we’re talking about. I’ve only worn this twice, both occasions the colour lasted well and was comfortable to wear. A beautiful pink based nude and I’d definitely recommend checking out the collection if you fancy treating yourself.
The original porefessional is another tried and true in my makeup collection, often used as a primer under foundation. I was actually looking for a BB cream when I thought I’d test this out…I’m that girl who likes to wear makeup to the gym. Not like a full face but just enough to make me feel confident and comfortable whilst working out. This certainly gives the same effect as a BB cream being tinted, somewhat moisturising but also mattifying.
Its very rare that I ever buy any sort of scent. Especially celebrity scents. I’d just heard so many positive things about this that I had to go test it out. Don’t do it !! You may end up loving it and taking it home 😉 Sugar frosted blackberry, vanilla and marshmallow notes create this sweet youthful scent, that no surprise smells like candy. Perfumes are such a personal thing and whilst this is so different to anything I’d normally gravitate towards. It’s definitely a new favourite.
