Daily Thoughts...Eyelash Curlers...

Just a quick blog post...I have always be one of these people that thinks I really should curl my lashes but can never actually be bothered to. However the other day I was getting ready without being in a rush and decided to use them. Since then I have carried on curling my lashes every day and it makes such a difference! I would definitely recommend using an eyelash curler just to you can see what a different it really makes!

Daily Thoughts...New Winter Coat...

Winter is my favourite time of year. I love it as it gets colder and you can wrap up warm in scarves and jumpers. I recently picked up a new coat from River Island because I wanted to update my wardrobe quickly. I loved wearing bright colours during summer so wanted a bright coat that would instantly brighten up my outfits as I tend to wear a lot of black. 



This coat is from River Island but I ordered it from Asos. It was £65.00 which I think is great value as it's a thick coat with a lovely faux fur trim.

Daily Thoughts...Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick...

When you're a student spending more than five pounds on a lipstick is not great. I love lipsticks and have quite a huge collection, however since starting university I have bought less and less simply because I spend my money on food, clothes and going out...which leaves less and less for make up. The other day I wanted a pink winter lipstick as the weather is changing, so I popped to Boots and picked up the Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick in the shade cranberry. At only £1.95 I was sold! Since buying this lipstick I have worn it pretty much every day. So I thought I would do a quick review for you guys...




This lipstick is perfect for those of you on a budget, it's not a sheer lipstick and gives a bold colour. It also moisturised my lips really well l so I don't need a lip balm. The only down side to these lipsticks are the staying power, however I find that they last just as well as other high street lipsticks, so if you want a long lasting lipstick then a high end lipstick would be best to invest in. The packaging is simple, its not expensive looking, but as the lipstick is only £1.95 i'm not going to complain. Their are a variety of shades available in this lipstick and I really want to try some more. So overall, yes I would definitely recommend this lipstick for those of you on a budget but still want to update your makeup collection.

I hope you enjoyed this review! I will be reviewing a variety of products everyday this month! So please subscribe it would make my day :)

Daily Thoughts...Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour Foundation..

So I am back again with another daily review...



Today I decided to do a quick review on the Rimmel 25 hour foundation. I have been using this foundation for a few years now. This foundation is great if like me you want a full coverage foundation that last all day without needing a primer. I use a powder throughout the day which helps keep it in place and prevent shine if you have oily skin.

When I apply this foundation I tend to use two pumps on my hand and I apply it with the Real Techniques expert face brush. If I am going on a night out I will then use more foundation on areas where I want a bit more coverage. This foundation normally lasts me two months before I need to repurchase it which is amazing, and as it is only £7.99 it is well within my student budget. In my opinion the foundation doesn't oxidise like some other foundations I have tried, which is good because you know the shade that you are applying won't change. The packaging is great for the price and I love how they use a glass bottle which makes it seem more expensive. 

The only downside to this foundation is the shade range. It would be nice to see a few more shades as the range currently only does six shades. 

I hope you liked this review. I will be doing reviews everyday this month! Please subscribe it would make my day.

Daily thoughts...Bioderma...

So this has to be one of the most hyped up products amongst youtubers and bloggers. I have wanted to see if it is worth the hype for a long time, so a few weeks ago I ordered a bottle.



I was so excited to take my makeup off with it and see if it really is as amazing as people say. Since using it for a few weeks I have to say I am in love with this product. It is great if you have sensitive skin like mine and want something gentle that will remove all of your makeup. This doesn't sting my skin or irritate it, instead it leaves my skin feeling cleansed and feels as if I am using just water to take off my makeup. I use three cotton pads and cleanse my skin three times with this to make sure all my makeup is taken off, I then follow with the La Roche-Posay thermal spring water spray to calm my skin. 

I hope you found this quick review helpful. I have decided to start doing quick daily reviews on different beauty products. So if there is a product you would like me to review, please comment below and I will try and review it for you :)

My Thoughts...La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo

After putting off buying this product for a long time I finally caved in and ordered it. I have wanted to try the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo for ages. I first heard about it when I watched Lily Melrose's skincare video on youtube, and after hearing how much she liked using it I instantly wanted to try it.



I got really fed up with my skin and how it kept breaking out so decided to order it and see if it would do anything. At first I loved it, I felt like it was one of the best products I had ever tried. However I put off blogging about it as I wanted to use it for a few months so that I could give a better review.

For those of you that haven't heard about this product it is a serum/moisturiser that is meant to unclog pores and help imperfections. La Roche Posay is a french skincare brand and seeing as I always here youtubers and bloggers raving about them I thought that this brand would be good to try out. 

Its been two months since I started using it...am I still impressed....? I don't think that this product is amazing and it certainly hasn't cleared up my skin. I still have breakouts on my forehead and on my chin. However when I apply it I do feel like my skin looks slightly better. At around 13 pounds it's not a cheap product and I don't think I would purchase it again. However this might change, maybe when I stop using it I will then know if I feel like it is an essential in my skincare regime. I will continue to use this product and see if it does eventually stop my breakouts.

I hope you liked this review and found it helpful...
