products i've used up 6


BENEFIT THEY'RE REAL MASCARA, L'OREAL TELESCOPIC MASCARA, CHANEL INIMITABLE INTENSE MASCARA, RIMMEL DAY 2 NIGHT MASCARA, COLLECTION 2000 CONCEALER, SMASHBOX PHOTOREADY PRIMER, LA ROCHE POSAY EFFACLAR DUO, REVLON NEARY NAKED FOUNDATION, SUPER DR. NICHOLAS PERRICONE BRIGHT EYE CREAM, THE BODY SHOP PEACH BODY BUTTER, LA ROCHE POSAY 30SPF ANTHELIOS AC, CAUDALIE MAKE-UP REMOVER CLEANSING WATER, TONI&GUY CLEANSE SHAMPOO FOR DRY HAIR

It's feels so good when you use up products and you can try out new products. As I share most of body/hair care products with my mum, those which are in the bathroom sometimes get straight thrown in the bin, so I can't show you everything, as my mum just doesn't understand these kind of posts. I finally decided to throw away all of dry out mascaras, which I thought could still be used. 

Benefit They're Real Mascara was a great one, but it just didn't give me the "wow" effect. I am aware that many love it, but I just felt like it's average. I liked it for layering on top of another mascara. I did like it more when it slightly dried out. L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara is my all time favorite! I just love how much length it adds to my lashes, as well as the small plastic wand didn't stick my lashes together. I already had re-purchase it. Chanel Initimable Intense Mascara is another favorite of mine, I've done a full review on it, you can read it here. Will re-purchase in future. Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara wasn't as great as I expected. It have stuck my lashes together, I didn't achieve as much volume as I wanted, it just didn't work with my lashes too well.

We all like a good coverage under our eyes, Collection 2000 Concealer (now Collection) is amazing, but I had the wrong shade, it was way too pale for my skintone, lesson learned. It was great to brighten my under eye area. Smashbox Photoready Primer is a great one, but I am not planning to re-purchase it, as in my opinion is not worth the price tag and there are a lot better primers out there. La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo is a great product to control breakouts, I just love using it in the morning, I don't use it twice a day because I feel like that will be too much for the skin. I would recommend using something really moisturising for nighttime. I love trying out new foundations, but I need to promise to myself that I will not buy new foundation before I won't use up one. Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation is amazing, the coverage and colour match is amazing! It was amazing to use during the summer, one thing that really annoys me, is that it doesn't have a pump, but other than that I love it. La Roche Posay 30SPF Anthelios AC great summer product, it's actually great to use as a make-up base, but once it got near my eyes became watery, was a pain when I was trying to apply mascara, but other than that it was great, I will definitely re-purchase it. The Body Shop Peach Body Butter great scent to use during summer, I love all body butter, although I do prefer to use them at night time, I find Body Shop Body Butters to heavy to use after a morning shower. Claudie Make-up Remover Cleansing Water it often been compared to the Bioderma and I must agree both products a very similar. I love the smell of Claudie Cleansing water, it's great to remove any left-over make-up. Will be writing up a full review of it soon. Toni&Guy Cleanse Shampoo for Dry Hair this shampoo kept on leaving my hair very soft and smooth, but I didn't really felt like it actually had washed out all of the products build up. Not sure why, but the scent isn't really my cup of tea either. Not planning to re-purchase any time soon. Hope you enjoyed the post.

urban decay naked basics palette


I love both of my Naked palettes, so I felt like I needed to give the Basics Palette a go too. Recently I been really into minimal make-up look, mostly mascara on the eyes only, but I like to apply matte neutral eyeshadow on the lids, so I will have even colour on my eye lids. Before I used to be obsessed with glittery eyeshadows, well I still am, but during the day I just want to wear minimal make-up.

In my opinion Urban Decay have an amazing pigmented eyeshadows and there is something for everyone. I personality love applying Walk of Shame all over the lid, then on top I like to add delicate shimmer such as Venus, in the crease I apply Faint, which is also great for filling in the eye brows. Crave is very pigmented black, I like to use it on my lower lash line, as an "eyeliner". Although there are 3 pale matte colours, which a very similar to each other in colour, wish that they could gradually have different tones of browns, for example from the lightest to the darkest. As we don't really need 4 base colours. I really like the small packaging, as it's great for travel, but I think I will also need to take another palette if I would travel, so I could have a bigger range of colours. Love the suede feeling when you touch the palette. 

This palette may not be everyone cup of tea, but I personally really like it and I will definitely be reaching for it on regular basic. Have any of you bought this palette? What are your thoughts on it? Overall do you like any of the Naked palettes?

sanctuary facial care


I love trying out new facial products, as I really like taking care of my skincare. Once you have amazing "base" you don't need to wear a lot of make-up. I really love Sanctuary Spa body products, as all smell so amazing! While browsing at Boots I came across their skincare products, Boots also was doing the 3for2 at that time. These three products really caught my eye, so I have decided to try them out. Recently my skin have been suffering with really bad breakouts, so I tried everything to control the breakouts. 

Sanctuary 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask, whenever I use this mask my skin looks so much better! Before applying this mask I always use the Sanctuary Exfoliating Pore Refiner, just exfoliate my skin, so the mask would work a lot better. Before applying the mask I also slightly wet my face, so the mask would be a lot easier to apply over slightly damped face. When you rub the mask in between your hands you can feel the heat, you can also feel it once applying on face. I normally keep the mask on for around 10minutes, just to make sure it will work better. I like to apply it before going to bed, on the next day I will wake up with few new pimples, but in my opinion they are just the dirt the facial mask have removed from under the skin, if that makes any sense. The other spots I had on the night before, appear much more smaller the next day, my skin also feels a lot more softer. 

Sanctuary Exfoliating Pore Refiner, this is a creamy exfoliating facial wash with little blue particles. I firstly apply a hot cloth on my face to open up the pores, then I gently exfoliate my skin. I tend to use this exfoliator twice a week, as I notice when I been using it more often my skin became more sensitive. I don't really suffer with large open pores, but from time to time my pores just appear larger, and this exfoliator helps me to control them a lot. The face scrub also contains salicylic acid to protect against the bacteria that causes skin blemishes, it also contains seaweed which is used to balance out the skin oil levels. The smell is very fresh and I like it a lot.

Sanctuary Radiance Exfoliator, this is the most amazing smelling product to use in the morning! I like to use it in the morning as it's makes me feel more awake, the fresh scent is really lovely. I been using it pretty much on daily basic and it doesn't do any harm to my skin. The skin is very soft after use. I really like the little exfoliating particles as they do their job really well.

Overall each product costs £10.50, but in my opinion all are worth every penny! As all are amazing. I also must mention that I really like the slim tall packaging, as they don't take up a lot of space in the bathroom.
