Shiseido Waso Cleansing trio



I love a product that is great for travelling with. There’s something so satisfying and cute about a mini product or something in unique packaging, which makes it simple to pop in your luggage and not take up valuable shoe space!
 Cleansers are often in bulky packaging or glass bottles so I was happy to see the latest cleansers from Shiseido in a pouch style packet. The slim line packaging in 70ml makes it handy to slip into your handbag for overnight travel or in your suitcase.
 
The Waso Reset Cleanser trio is a collection of mood enhancing cleansers made from Japanese Agar Jelly.
 The jelly texture is refreshingly light and although a foaming cleanser is not my favourite texture of cleanser to use, this did leave the skin feeling refreshed and balanced without drying or stripping.  Agar Jelly is particularly good at cleansing the skin of impurities making it a better choice for those with a combination, oily or congested skin.
The cleansers are sold as a trio and each cleanser is slightly different.
 The yellow is called Good Vibes and has a zesty uplifting scent. It contains Japanese quince for added hydration. The green is called Wild Garden and contains Okra, which is high in vitamin A, B, and C and great for a compromised skin barrier or those with an oiler skin.
 The red is called Romantic Dream and contains Raspberry extract to hydrate and replenish making this better for a dryer skin.

You can purchase the trio here for £25.00.

Murad Prebiotic 3-in-1 Multi mist


I don't know about you but my skin constantly needs a shot of hydration at the moment. Air con in the car, a fan on full whack at bedtime and the hot sticky days require a little extra support for my skin.
 Over the last few weeks I’ve been using the prebiotic facial mist from Murad. We know Murad is serious about skincare so you can always be confident that it will create a product that will deliver the goods!
 The Prebiotic mist is peptide rich, which means it's full of collagen boosting ingredients. Peptides are pretty teeny so they are good at penetrating the skin. The delivery system of a mist is possibly not going to give you as much of the peptide as say, a serum but it's kind of a bonus product on top of your normal regime.
 Our skin is covered in bacteria and the prebiotic within this mist will help keep the bacteria happy and rebalanced.

This mist is good for sensitive, ageing, dehydrated, unbalanced or dry skin and can be misted on at any stage of your normal skincare routine. I personally enjoy spritzing over my moisturised face just before I apply foundation or misting over my face regularly throughout the day, as I need it.
 It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight after it's evaporated either which is a win!


The Murad Prebiotic multi mist is £30 for 100ml and available here. The slim line tube makes it great for travelling with and the 100ml size means you can take it on an aircraft too for a long skin dehydrating flight.

Depixym Cosmetic Emulsion



Wowsers there are a hell of a lot of choice in colour coming from Depixym. 
  This brand has been created by two industry insiders Vic & Al who wanted to create a brand that wasn’t particularly positioned to a certain market. Genderless, no rules, multi area use, cruelty free and environmentally conscious. Sounds pretty epic hey. 
 So what are the products? 


Little tubes that look like cute watercolor paints filled with a thick cream that is intensely pigmented. They are multi use so you can use them as an eye shadow, blush, and lips, mix with your body cream for a skin tint or for body painting. You can use it as a base for other products or as a liner with a fine brush. The colour range is awesome.

 20 shades ranging from clear to plum, vibrant citrus tones and intense midnight blues and black. Each emulsion is £18 but lasts a seriously long time. 

 The shades…



I really like these emulsions. Very workable, build-able, great longevity with amazing pigment.If you like something a little bit different then check this brand out here.

Perricone MD Foundation Serum



Image:wwwlookfantastic.co.uk

If you’re looking for a lightweight Summer foundation that has great skincare benefits and good sun protection then check out Perricone MD Foundation serum. It’s part of the No Makeup Makeup collection from the brand and combines science based skincare with colour.

This serum foundation comes in a pipette style bottle although there is a screw lid also for better transportation. The travel friendly sized bottle is 30ml however the fluid texture means a little goes a seriously long way.
  This foundation contains neuropeptides, which send messages to the skin cells and assist them in managing various skin issues such as inflammation and healing.
 The coverage is a sheer veil and has a silicone feel to it. The suede finish is beautiful however the formula does need to be worked into the skin well with a firmer brush. A loose fibred foundation brush will result in brushstroke marks in your foundation.
 I found it took a little while to settle into the skin so those with an oily skin may not find the texture comfortable to wear, the silicone feel would also be off putting to those with an oily skin.
 If your skin is on the dryer side, textured or more mature then it works well to blend in, blur pigmentation or uneven skin tone and didn’t cling to textured areas.
 A good SPF of 30 gives extra protection to the skin this summer without feeling heavy.

The colour pigments adapt really well and seem to blend into your own skin tone and the finish is suede-like, hydrating and illuminating. There are 8 shade options which all seem fairly warm toned and annoyingly wouldn’t really cater for a very deep skin tone.

Overall a great textured foundation for those who want a natural veil but with the bonus of good skincare benefits and sun protection. Lasts well, looks natural, applies easily and easy to transport in your makeup bag.


 You can pick up Perricone MD Foundation Serum here for £45.00

Benefit Brow Contour Pro

My favourite pens in the 90’s were always the ones with 4 colours in one. Clicking each colour down aggressively to get the next colour was always a great thing to do to annoy your math’s teacher.
 Benefit has launched their 4 in one brow contour product, which is genius to create a multi dimensional brow look.
The trend for a contoured solid brow doesn’t seem to be slowing up so rather than use multiple product in varying shades, you can switch between the different tones within the one product.
It holds a lighter and darker shade an edge definer shade and a highlighter pencil.
 The texture is blendable to create a soft brow but the formula is hard to give great longevity.

There are 5 shade options to choose from and I would say the best way to select which pen is best for you is to match the lightest shade within the pen to your natural hair colour.
Blonde/Light Pen
 The shade range is great, catering from very fair through to black hair and the pigments tend to have an ashy finish, which is great to create a natural brow look.


The Brow contour pro is £29.00 and available now here.

Clarins Ombre Eye Shadow

Who doesn’t love an ombre eye shadow? Clarins have developed 3 new-textured eye shadows that pack a punch when it comes to pigment and longevity.
 Ombre Velvet, which consists of white, pink and black shades, has a cream to gel texture. They contain polymers, which help the product to glide over the skin and blend out with ease (although you do need to work fast). 

Create a solid block colour which is super longwearing or use it as a base under your powder shadows. The finish is completely matte and very intense. Ombre satin consists of the purple, blue and green and has a slight sheen. Easier to blend than the velvet texture but with an equally strong pigment. 
 Ombre sparkle are three shades with a gel to powder texture. The glitter shards are suspended in the texture and don’t spread across the skin. 
 They look beautiful over a naked eye lid or for a dramatic finish, press over the other ombre shades. The ombre eye shadows from Clarins are £20 each and available now here.
