A concealer - That covers


I took Boots up on the latest 3 for 2 offer and picked this up as my freebie, which always feels good. I only have one concealer which is the Collection lasting perfection one which I love for any type of blemish and for the bags under my eyes. I spotted this Maybelline Superstay Better Skin and thought I would give a different concealer a go and try to branch out.

The consistency is quite thick and very similar to the Collection one. It doesn't come with an applicator on the end and is just a squeeze tube which I actually quite like, either going straight on to my finger or brush. When applying it to my under-eye area I found it to be quite cakey and didn't sit well on my skin. On the other hand any blemishes on my face were well concealed and I was happily surprised. It managed to cover my blemishes to the point where I couldn't spot where I had applied it. The colour match for me is perfect and it will certainly remain in my collection and will be using it for a while. 

Does it have the lasting power you say? Well the first day and every other day I've used this my redness under my nose and my facial blemishes were still well covered when returning home, especially after a day at work. I like to pat down some powder on top of my concealer to help keep it in place which probably helps its lasting power, but overall I really do like using this product. 

Do you have a concealer you swear by? I would love to know so I can branch out and try some more.

    1. Honestly it just blends the blemish away! Not good under my eyes though. Give it a go! :) 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
