January sales!

The best thing about after christmas is it's time for the sales. It starts with boxing day sales, and carrys on all the way into january.
It's the best time to go shopping, if there's something that you've been wanting to bye the time is now.
Most shops normally have like 30%-40% off, but since no one has been spending much this year a lot of shops are having 50%-70% off. Which is amazing. I will be taking advantage of this and shopping as much as i can, just in time for payday as well :)

Best things to bye
- Perfune
- Clothes
- Shoes
- Electronical things

Happy shopping :)

Garnier BB Cream Review + Other BB Creams

When i first saw the advert for it, my first thoughts were, it won't be as good as the Korean one.
But i love BB creams, so i thought i'd give it a go. So i sent of for my free sample.
Strangely i ended up with two free samples both with 3 little packets in.

It came like this, through my letter box. It has three flaps to open up.


This is what it looks like opend up, there is wrighting on the other side of the flaps, i like that they give you a voucher for £1 off when you buy your next Gernier bb cream, it can be used on the tinted eye roll-on as well.

It also tells you what bb cream on the top flap and how it was developed by a German dermatologist and that it was made famous in Korea by an actress.

Garnier BB Cream clames to, even, cover, illuminate, hydrate and protect the skin, it also says it has SPF15.

So i opend up one of the little packets, it came in light, i don't think they asked me which colour i wanted. The smell is okay, the first thing i noticed was that it's darker than my other bb creams and it looks more orangey.

Useing my foundation brush i started to apply it, i noticed it seamed greasy and left my face looking shiney. Also that i needed more of the product than i do with the other ones to cover my face.
After a few minuites the shineyness seams to disapear.
It does leave your face feeling smooth.
But when i look at my face in the mirror i can tell i have it on, wereas with the other ones it doesn't look like i have anything on, my face also looks a tad orangey which always seams to happen with English foundations, one of the reasons i stopped using them.

 It does cover the face and even out the skin. It doesn't feel like it has hydrated my face, in face after a while my face started to feel a little dry.

I would have to stick with my Skin79 BB Cream and Shills BB Cream.
I feel those two are better, they even out my skin and leave it feeling soft.

The shills one has SPF50 - A lot more than the Garnier one.
Shills says it has whitening, wrinkle improvement. The whitening means it whitens blemeshes and stuff.
Shills is a lot lighter than the Gernier one so it doesn't leave me looking orange. It's lightest of them all.

Skin79 has SPF25 - Not as much as the Shills one but still more than the Garnier one.
This one says it has whitening, wrinkle improvement too. It also says on the back -  By Adenosine and Arbutin ingredints which are effective in whitening, wrinkles improvement cultivate more bright and elastic skin.

Safe to say i'v never heard of those... I can't say what the Shills one says as it's in Korean on the back.

I tryed to swatch it on my hand, but it didn't work to well. The one in the middle doesn't actually look that dark, the lighting made it looks a tad darker.

The first one is the Shills one, the second it the Skin79 and the last one is the Garnier one.
Don't think you can tell by that picture but the Garnier one is a lot thicker.

I proberly won't be buying the Garnier one anytime soon, i might try the Tinted eye roll-on since i have a voucher.

I will stick with the Korean ones, even if it means shipping them over here.


This turned out to be very long, oops.
If you read it all thanks ^_^

Shills BB Cream And How To Make Your Own

I'v been wereing it ever since it came... Can't remeber how long.
And i really like it. My skin does look better, but i don't think it's because of the BB Cream. And i'm not sure if it had evened out my skin.
Proberly slow results for that, and i have only had it a little while. I think it's been 2 weeks.
My other BB Cream hasn't come yet T_T




I'd give it a buy :)
The only problem with it, is that it only comes in light tones, since it was made for people in asia. Korea mostly. The only way for me to get it is to buy it online, from online shops or ebay.
www.adambeauty.com i think sells it. I'm not sure if that is the right address for it.
Reviews here www.makeupalley.com

Now how to make your own BB cream. Yeah i'm useing a contact case that i no longer need.
It won't be as good as BB cream. But it is better than nothing. You can use your own foundation, so your not limited to the light tones that BB creams have.
All you need to do it, put some of your foundation in a tub, add sun cream and mix. And taaadaaarr. You have your own make shift BB cream.

It's good doing this for summer time, so that your face is protected against the sun. And you don't have to apply two differnt things to your face. 2 in 1 ^_^

BB Cream

One of the two BB creams i orderd have arrived. The one that i got today is;
Shill Super Magic BB Cream

BB Cream (also known as Blemish Balm) is the much raved product that everybody is talking about in Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the whole world!!! BB Cream was first used as an after treatment care product to cover the redness for people who underwent laser surgery. It contains healing properties that helps to conceal and protect the healing skin yet at the same time encourages skin regeneration!
The excellent result achieved was talked about and soon enough, Korean actresses started using BB Cream in their daily makeup routine to help achieve that natural flawless look!

6 in 1 BB cream UV protection SPF50 PA+++, skin whitening, oil control, moisturizer, concealer, makeup base all in one.

It is very light, so only people with light skin will be able to use it. I think they have started to do other shades of colours but i'm not sure. It's light because it was made for people in asia.
It's so annoying that you can't get this anywere else apart from asia.
It blends nice with fingers or foundation brush.
I'd recomend it to other people.
Can't wait for my other one to arrive.

L'oréal Paris Perfect Clean

While i was looking through boots for a face cream that i forgot the name to. I came across this. I was like oooh it has a face scrubby thing, which i'v been looking for. Can't ever find one.
There is three differn't types, normal skin, sensitive skin and blemish prone skin.
If this is good i'll get the other one.
The blemish skin one has salicylic acid in it.
It's a foaming gel face wash basically.
It says on the label
  • Clean sensation
  • Pores look smaller
  • Velverty smooth skin
And it's oil free.

All you do it pop out the scrublet, squese the gel on the scrublet, damp your face and clean.

Todays shopping.

I actually didn't intend to buy anything in town today. Ooh well. And technicaly the brush set came from Japan but arrived today :) Which i am happy about.

Hello Kitty Mac Brush Set




They are so soft. I love the compactness of it, i have a travel set but they aint good quality brushes, so i needed some good ones. They will be perfect for holidays :)
7 brushes in total :) I proberly won't use the foundation brush yet, since i already have one that isn't that old. So i'll keep that for now. Actually i may not use them at all yet, since i have a few brushes. But it's nice to have a spear pair.

I'v been wanting some node lip stick for a while. I looked all through boots but could only find a nude in the boots range of make-up. I thought rimel or maybelline might have one, but no. :(





Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24H
 01 Intense Black
I'v hurd that gel eyeliner is really good. So i thought i should by some and try it. Not expensive ar £7.99
More than i would normally pay for eyeliner, but i normally by stick or liquid.
I tryed it on my hand and it's quite nice.
It comes with a application brush too.




The brush is nice and soft. And it has it's own little brush guard.


Going to sleep now. Collage in the morning.

Olay Complete Care

I'v been useing this for months and it has really made an improvement to my skin.
My skin is a lot clearer now, thanks to this. And it leaves the face feeling smooth and soft.

It says on the tub:
Daily senstive uv cream. SPF 15.


I normally apply this before foundation, to give my foundation a base.
When i get out of the shower, because the face wash leaves my face dry, and this fixes that straight away.
Before i go to bed, i know it says daily, but i don't really mind. I apply it under the eyes too, since the under eye area doesn't get as much mosture as the rest of the face.
If i'm in during the day and i'm not going out, i apply it a few times i day.
I know it's a lot, but it really has made my skin a lot better.


If you're looking for a face cream i would highly recomend this one.
I'm not sure how much it was, since i nicked it off my mum before she had the chance to use it.

Blue Eyes Make-up.

So i got a little bored and decided to playa round with my make-up. Which i do quite often.
And i ended up with this blue eye make-up.
Light blue near the inner eye, dark blue on the middle and near the end of the eye. And purple right at the end.
And lined with black eye liner. Adding white in the iner corner of the eye opens up the eye.
