L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer Review- Toast & Fawn

Left: Toast, Right: Fawn

I saw a few reviews on this product on youtube and blogs and decided to try them for the undereye area  (Fawn) and for spot concealing (Toast). They set dry to a matte finish with amazing staying power. Considering they cost $2.50 each and they are some of the best concealers I have ever used I was quite surprised that they live up to the hype.

I purchased mine from old faithful BeautyJoint.

Have you tried these?

Revlon Colorstay Foundation Review- 400 Caramel (Combination/Oily)

I have extremely oily skin. I have tried just about everything to block oil, from primers and oil blocking moisturizers to skin treatments. Powder doesn't help much either and since I don't like dewy skin remaining matte is a problem for me as it is for most people. I was watching a Lisa Eldridge videon on youtube about foundations for combination/Oily/Very Oily Skin and this was one of the ones I had not tried and was under the "Very Oily" category. 
I finally purchased it and started using it the same day. I used my Boots Botanics Shine Away Mattifying Day Cream SPF15 underneath and applied it with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush.
I had it on for 7 hours without once needing to blot even the most oily ares of my face. Which has NEVER happened before!!
It is mattifying without drying out my skin. I love it and so happy they sell it in Boots

Do you have oily skin? What works for you? Have you tried this?

Things I've Bought Recently

Hi everyone!!
I know it's been a while! I've been extremely busy settling in to a new postgrad course, in a new uni, in a new city and haven't had much time for non-uni related things. I thought I'd do a haul to get back into the swing of things. 
Hope you have all been well?

Best High street Cleanser I Have Ever Used!

Hi Everyone!
I have recently been playing with some new high street skin care and came across the Botanics Softening Cleanser by Boots. It's 82% organic and is great at taking off makeup and everyday grime. As usual, I take off the bulk of my makeup with a wipe. I have always done this and removing a full face of makeup with a cleanser alone is a foreign concept to me.
I rub a dime size amount of the cleanser into dry skin and wip with a cotton pad. I didn't expect this to work at all but when I used my toner I found that there was no makeup left on my skin. Not only was my skin clean, it was also supple and hydrated by the cleanser.
I will definitely be trying out the other products in the range and will let you know of any other gems I find.

Have you tried anything from the Botanics range?

My new love!!

I went out today in search of coat that is season versatile (light enough for late summer, can be layered for autumn and winter). I popped into a few shops and was also determined not to get anything that looks like something I already have. I went to Zara, Newlook, Topshop etc., you know, all the high street regulars, and settled on this contrast leather khaki parker from Primark. It was £25 and is practical and bang on trend. A lot of the other high street shops carry their own version of this jacket. I'm almost glad they had run out of my size in Zara, Topshop and River Island.
I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality! It's definitely one to keep an eye out for?

What do think of the contrast leather parker trend?

Buy of the week!

Long time no blog!! I've been extremely busy with life but had to take a quick minute to mention these wedges I just bought from newlook! They have quite a low heel and are really comfortable! I'm just getting into wearing heels day to day because I'm quite tall and find these shoes are still within my comfort zone. They are also only £19.99!! Love 'em!!
