Liz Earle Skin Repair™ Moisturiser

I am a firm believer in spending good money on serums rather than face moisturizers but I also understand the importance of having a good moisturizer as a base for makeup and also to replenish your skin during the day and especially while you sleep.

Scott Barnes Body Bling Original

In the summer, because we are baring the flesh for all to see, it is really important for me to have a body bronzer when I am too lazy to fake tan and as I love glitter, I love it to have a little glam to it to make my skin really glow. I know that being as I live in Cyprus where it is 1000c I should by rights get a natural tan but 1, I hate the heat. 2, I don’t want to subject my skin to the harmful and ageing rays of the sun so for me it’s better to fake it.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

I really wanted to find a foundation that was going to give me medium coverage and a luminous finish. At the time I was wearing Lancome Teint Miracle and although this gave me a glowing complexion, I didn’t like the strong alcohol scent to it and the fact that my shade in this foundation had begun oxidizing like crazy and turning orange even though I was using a new bottle.

Battle of the Micellar Waters!👑

I expect a micellar water to be an all-rounder and this means that it be suitable to remove face makeup and gentle enough to use around the eyes to effectively remove eye makeup without me needing to go over the same areas so many times that it makes my eyes sore.  The solution also needs to be sensitive enough that it doesn’t make my eyes sore and/or irritated. I wouldn’t say that I have extra sensitive eyes but if a micellar water burns my eyes into an oblivion burn then it isn’t for me.  It is also important for me to mention here that I do not wear waterproof mascara or gel eyeliner.

Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner 0.48ml

Because of the experiences I’d had in the past with liquid eyeliner pens, I was reluctant to try one again but my favourite liquid eyeliner in the pot always takes a lot longer to apply than that of a pen, I believed. With the eyeliner pens that I’ve used in the past I found that the tip gets full of eyeshadow and so it is unable to deposit enough product as you are draw across the eyelid.

Soap & Glory™ Glow All Out™ Highlight & Sculpt Cheek Stick

The last time I was in the UK I visited Boots a lot (as you do) and on one occasion I’d specifically gone in to buy the Soap & Glory™ Glow All Out™ Highlight & Sculpt Cheek Stick which had caught my eye when I was scouring their website prior to my visit.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer

As my regular readers would have read in my previous reviews, I have dark, brown under eye circles that I inherited from my Romany gypsy great grandmother so covering these, without accentuating all my fine lines, is paramount to me.

BY TERRY Hyaluronic Hydra Powder

I wasn’t able to find my favourite pressed powder by NARS anywhere. I had been using the Laura Mercier Invisible Pressed Powder and while it was ok, it didn’t last long and I had hit pan shortly after I had used it and believe me, I am not wearing makeup every day.

After seeing the BY TERRY Hyaluronic Hydra Powder talked about by a YouTuber I decided to order it from SPACENK, UK, for £42 and see if it delivered the claims the website said it would in the description. Continue reading “BY TERRY Hyaluronic Hydra Powder”
