IMG_6444.jpegClinique Superbalanced Foundation

‘Provides comfortable moderate coverage, imparting a natural finish. Absorbs oil where needed. Minimises the appearance of fine lines. Stays true to colour.Contains anti-oxidants and anti-irritants. Streak proof, perspiration proof. Non-acnegenic, oil free and Ophthalmologist tested.’

I have been after a new foundation for a while and I decided to try out some from Clinique. I always go into the Boots in manchester when buying from Clinique, I love the sales assistants who work there as they are always so helpful and kind.

 I told one of the ladies I was after a new foundation and I wanted a dewy finish that was a light coverage which is build buildable. She recommended me the Superbalenced foundation and found my colour match and applied it to my face so I could see whether or not I liked it. I wore it for the rest of the day while shopping and I liked how subtle it was on my skin and how fresh and even it made my skin look. It did not go cakey which sold it to me as I hate when foundation looks cakey on the skin.

With this foundation, a little goes a long way. I apply dots of it onto my face then I take my Real Techniques Stippling brush and work it into my skin until it is blended. Then I apply concealer if needed and then set it all with some powder. It stays on my face throughout the day without needed any touch ups.

 I have been using this foundation for around 4 months now and it has not broke out my skin or dried it up. If I am wearing foundation I like to use a heavy moisturiser so this foundation sits on the skin without drying it.

As you can see the foundation blends into my skin without it being noticeable. The colour match is the perfect match for me and if you are interested it trying this foundation out you can always go to your nearest Clinique store and ask if you can try it on throughout the day to see if you like it.

This foundation is perfect for anyone who likes minimal looking makeup and does not wear foundation a lot. It blends nicely into your skin and looks natural. I love using this foundation on days where I want a bit more coverage and want my skin looking more even.

This foundation is on the more high end price at £22.50 but I think it is worth the price. You can find it at Clinique online or in store and also in Boots.

Little Letters by El – Review

Little Letters by El

My friend has her own small business, she makes personalised letters that can be bought as either gifts or for yourself.
Since she started making them, I have had my eye on them as they always look so nice and perfect for either a gift for someones birthday or for yourself as decoration in your bedroom. When I turned 21 she made me a floral print K and I was so happy with my hand made gift.

I think Little Letters by El is such a unique gift idea and she also makes them in different fabric prints and they are also affordable.

Even the bag it comes packaged in is adorable!

Ellie even adds a personalised tag which I think is a nice touch to the gift.

The personalised letter adds a nice touch to you bedroom. They are also so detailed and well made, I also love the little flower that she has made and added to the K as she knows I love flowers so it is a nice touch to my personalised letter.

I’m Back!

katekiwii1

Hello fellow beauty bloggers and readers,
For the past few months there has been a few tumble weeds on my blog from the lack of blog posts and activity!
But, I am finally back! I have been absent since February, This is because I’ve had a lot of university work to do as I am in my final year! But on May the 4th I finally completed and handed my dissertation in so I am now free from university work and university till I graduate!
This means so much free time to get myself back into blogging which is the thing that I love. I can’t wait to post a blogpost every week and start reviewing and making videos for the people who read my blog. I already have a lot of blog pictures on my SD card waiting to be used in blog posts and I have been itching to get back on my blog but been so busy with university work and also very stressed so I didn’t want it showing in my posts and posting little reviews when I could as I like to put all my effort and time into my blog posts.

Thank you to everyone who’s stayed following me during my absence sorry for the long wait but I am now finally back and ready to get back into my little hobby.

Thank you!
Katie x
