I've been using my shadows less and less for filling in my brows. Instead I've been sticking to my clinique instant brow lift pencil in soft brown to define my brows. If you've never used it before it's a double ended pencil that has the brow definer shade on one end and a highlight on the other end. I'm on my second pencil as the first one lasted me ages as I went through phases of it. My second pencil I'm just addicted to using, so much so that I feel like I'm going through it really quickly! So I thought why don't I try out the other clinique pencil as I'm sure you'd get more product for defining your brows in it.

Neal's Yard Remedies is something that I didn't hear a whole lot about. Maybe it was something I've seen in shops but I was never tempted to try this out. I got this a few months ago and I've been using it regulary as part of my night time routine - link ( instead of my Botanics Night Cream!).

For the longest time I never curled my lashes. I didn't realise the impact of doing it. When I was a child I once trimmed my lashes, thankfully they grew back. Unfortunately I've one eye that has curly lashes and one eye with not so curly lashes. Weird huh?

The past week we've been really lucky with the weather. At one stage when I got into my car it was a scorching 35C! I'm not one for worshipping the sun, but when I'm out in it I like to protect myself. On a recent trip to Nice with some of the girls I brought along with me my Clinique SPF 40 body cream that I got in work over a year ago with a discount (I can't remember the exact price). This was my first time to use this cream which was quite thick and very "white" as it transferred to some of my clothing, which is a pain in the arse!

Back in September of last year I picked this up in the States. I had only tried out their mineral foundation (loose powder) and their pressed powder from the True Match section and I've loved each one. So hearing Kandee Johnson go on about how much she loves this foundation was no surprise that I wanted to try this out.

|Estée Lauder Maximum Cover Foundation|
Shade: Light, 30mls
The forumla is quite thick but it speads quite easily. This can be used on the face and body. The first time I used it I tried it out with a foundation brush but it was far too heavy for my liking. Well it is a maximum coverage foundation. On my whole face it was too much. So I tried it with my fingers and I much prefer the result, however it's still a little too heavy and it just wipes out my freckles on my face!
My ultimate preference for this is to use it as a concealer. I tend to keep this for blemishes mainly on my chin that have a high pigmentation and I need a longwear out of my make up look. Especially for working 12 hour shifts!
Foundation: Rimmel Match Perfection, 100 Ivory
Colour Correction under eyes: Make Up Forever camouflage palette (peach tone concealer)
Concealer: Estée Lauder Maximum Cover Foundation, Light
Eyeshadows: Urban Decay Naked 2 - link
