april favourites 2015

A late monthly favourites, purely because life got in the way. After my 21st Birthday I just felt slightly unmotivated to deal with the blog. Next weekend I am flying to Barcelona, I received such a lovely weekend away treat from my best friend. She is my star! Okay, lets get on with the post. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is my new favourite mascara! Makes my lashes look really long and full. You can easily build up the mascara, I mostly like the fact that it doesn't smudge, as much as all my other mascaras.
Eyeko Lash Curler* it's my second Eyeko Lash Curler and I love it! Sadly my lashes are never too curly, so I need extra help, to add some curl. The shape of Eyeko Curler is just perfect for my eye shape.
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm my oh my! This product is such a great under make-up base! Your foundation will stick to you face and will last all day.  I really do need get my hands on full size.
Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Repair Conditioner a cheap but  a great hair conditioner. Leaves my hair feeling really soft. I mostly like the fact, that it doesn't weight my hair down.
Lush the Comforter bubble bath is my all time favourite. Who doesn't like pink baths? Bubbly baths are my favourite. The Comforter is great because you can break it apart and use it for 2 or 3 baths. 
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub  my all time favourite scrub. Whenever I want softer skin, scrub is just a must! I love the scent of Sugar Crush.

laura mercier silk creme foundation review

It took me so long to write a full review of the famous Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation. I had this tube for around a year and kept on using it on and off and for the past 1,5month I have been using it every day purely to use it up and get rid of the foundation. I been observing how it behaves on the skin after few hours of wear, lets get straight to the point. 

COLOUR: The colour match is amazing, normally I'm the palest shade with every brand. My Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation shade is Soft Ivory. It's a yellow base foundation.
FORMULA/TEXTURE: The foundation is very creamy and thick.
APPLICATION: I tried so many techniques of applying this foundation, the best one so far is applying it with a wet sponge. Applying with fingers just doesn't work, as the foundation just won't stay in place, if you keep on rubbing it, unless you pat it in, I would say you could make it work. The brush again didn't work for me either.
COVERAGE: I would day medium to full coverage and you must remember that you only need to apply a little bit. If you apply to much, the foundation just won't stay on the skin. I tried building it up, to receive much more fuller coverage but it just didn't work.
LASTING POWER: I am really disappointed to say, that this is the worst foundation, when it comes to lasting power. After two hours my face was shiny, the foundation was in my pores. Everything have came off my oily nose, as well as every time I touched my face with my finger I ended up with foundation on my finger. Whenever I wear foundation, I just like it to stay in place like it's glued, I dislike when a foundation keeps on moving around on my face. I tried to use it with different primers, but nothing seems to work. 
OVERALL OPINION: At first I really liked the foundation, but after a longer period of time and testing, I started to dislike it. It's overpriced for what it is. There are a lot more better foundation to try out. 

Did you have a chance to try out the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation? What is your opinion on it?
