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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
