Laura Mercier: Metallic Creme Eye Colour



   


Hello beautiful people!
So i made i cheeky purchase of something i hadn't heard much about before. I actually went to the Laura Mercier stand to check out the mineral powder and started chatting to the lovely and very helpful lady and she showed me this (which i just HAD to get)...

To simplify, its a metallic creme shadow that when dry has the texture of what an eyeshadow powder has. Its quite thick and depending on how strong a colour you want, this is very build-able. I got the colour Platinum which is a champaign sort of colour. I chose this shade because I'm just a sucker for these shades for my eye lids. They are just so easy to wear on an everyday basis, or even in the evening with a crease colour added on top of it. When i apply this to my lids i smear it over the lid until i reach the intensity that i want, then allow it to dry with my eye closed for about 5-10 seconds and its done. I used this the day after i purchased it and it lasted well. I applied it at 9am and by around 4/5pm it had faded but could still see a slight shimmer still.

Over all i really like this product and it will most probably move its way into my daily make up routine as its just so easy to apply, and looks so pretty.
For £16.50 its quite steep, however i am very happy with it and you do get a hell of a lot of product in that tiny tube. 

Let me know if you've tried any of the shades in the creme shadow range, i would love to know your thoughts. And lastly thank you all for reading :) xoxo

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
