17 Miracle Matte Foundation


Hi guys , this review is on a new foundation I purchased about two weeks ago .I've been wanting to review this since I got it and I finally can .So for a while now I've been using Rimmels wake me up foundation -click HERE for a review ,it was really good but until recent I noticed when I removed my makeup I'd have tons of spots.Which was obviously really annoying .So I set out to find an oil free foundation.I ended up going through a few isles in Boots but I picked up 17's Miracle Matte Natural Foundation.
ON TO THE REVIEW :


I never have used any 17 foundations before so this was a new product for me. One of my downers is that the Bottle is tiny  .It literally goes up to the bottom of the lid which is really small.I really liked how soft and satinny this felt on my skin . It also felt weightless and light .I got the shade Natural as this was the best for my skin tone.The problem with this range for me was that the shades weren't very varied.They kind of just had a few main shades and that was it ,so I didn't match my skin color up perfectly I probably got it a little lighter as I prefer to use a lighter shade.This wasn't too mattifying ,it definitely wasn't oily or gave a dewy glowy kind of look.It just made an ok base for the rest of my makeup which is all I wanted in the first place.I'm still a bit curious as to the 16 hours though , I don't think it necessarily lasts longer than eight hours unless you put on a few layers.It didn't cover my scars up very well which I wasn't expecting.It's a bit of a shame realy because I'm gonna have to layer it up until my scars and redness clear up.


So overall I'm kind of hit and miss with this product . Yes, It's not making any spots come out, it's controlling shine and is oil free but I was expecting at least semi- flawlessness if you get what I mean . This would probabbly have gotten higher marks If it covered up a little better and  actually stayed on for longer.I'm gonna mark this product 4 stars as even though it had a few Dream Reflection Downers I really like he feel it has to it .You can get this from Boots for £5.99.

Orhis ,nourishing face cream


Hi guys , I have to say ,the weather in Englands been pretty miserable lately hasn't it ?That's Autumn for you!Anyway , I was looking through my messages yesterday and I realized I had a request to do a review on the Orhis Nourishing Face Cream from My Betrousse Beauty Box review.I apologies , I'm really sorry; I completely forgot about it but I will do it now for you :)


Check the bottle of this thing. It's like so strange but I think it does it justice , I mean the writing on the front is in French but don't let that boggle your mind too much because the writing's in English too.Orhis is obviously a french company and they have specialized this cream to be 99.1 % natural. Well , I guess we can't all be perfect ! I found this nourishing cream to be very nourishing , in fact I think there must have been a little too much Argon oil int here as my skin got very oily and I started to get little tiny grease spots.
 They're not that bad they're just them little ones that pop and go within a day or two but it's still not very ideal.My face was kept very soft and healthy though.I don't know what the Cottonseed was for or what it was doing but maybe it had some aspect to do with the anti wrinkle formula.Ok , so I read in one of the booklets that this was also a Anti -Wrinkle cream ,this kind of stopped me in my tracks,I'm only 14 ,I'm pretty sure I don't wrinkle .So I've stopped using this cream now because no good ever comes from underageness , and I believe that Anti Wrinkle solutions should be used when you've hit the twenty age mark , but hey "call me crazy "just a thought.



So overall , this product was a little too moisturisng , it's probably best for dry skin and people that are slightly older and I think it's a little pricey for the 50ml's it is at 40 euros .You can take a look at any other creams they do or purchase this one HERE.

Amazing Earrings review-Part 2 ,love hearts

Hi guys , so this is my part 2 of My amazing earrings review.A week ago I received some really lovely earrings at the doorstep and I have already reviewed two of my favorite out of the lot HERE.The next two I'm reviewing are ones that I've been wearing at school .
The first review is on the Hearts in Heart earrings.(The ones on the left.)I love these earrings as,they are really pretty and casual . They're not bright and vibrant which is definitely something I can pass at school .But it's also very subtle and simple looking as well as being beautiful.I love hearts ,and I always seem to be buying this sort of shape .They are dimantic too ,so what's not to love?


 Ok ,so following on for my love for hearts I went and bought a similar pair.I really like this pair as though it is a heart shape it looks sort of unique to me.Probably because it has no center and looks more borderlike. I actually think these look pretty cool .They're studded and the yellow and black flowers ,at first glance I actually thought they were bumble bees  ,I'm happy they weren't !
These are great to wear casually ,and I will definitely be putting my hair up when I wear these.


So what do you think ?If you would like to look at any more amazing earrings , then click HERE to take you to the website.If you are again , spoilt for choice keep reading for regular reviews on my faves .All the AMAZING EARRINGS  ,STUD EARRINGS,DROP EARRINGS and HOOP EARRINGS are at a fantastic price of $2.49.And they are very good quality too ,not the cheap nasty rubbish you tend to get.SO i would thoroughly recommend you take a look.

John Frieda Frizz Ease 3 day straight


Hi guys , so I know the hype over this s pretty died down now but I didn't think of trying it till of recent.So I bought this with intentions of  figuring out what was so good about it.When I straightened my hair ,it felt sticky .Maybe I put a little extra than the preferred dosage but I didn't necessarily think it would be that much of a problem at the time.So I have naturally curly hair ,it's not too frizzy but maybe a little .But what really baffles me , is when I straighten my hair it doesn't get frizzy ,most peoples hair doesn't as far as I know so why do you need it ?I just don't understand the concept of this stuff.Despite the fact i have fairly,ringletty curls my hair straightens quite easily and will stay straight for as long as I don' wash it .-It won't be poker straight but to be completely honest with you I'm not too keen on the poker straight look ,I just think you need some volume and body to your hair and it really just doesn't suit me.


One thing I did find with this is that the whole aspect of "three day straight " wasn't entirely true , it didn't keep my hair straight , i'm fact it stayed about the same "straightness "as it would usually do .
I found that , however it did give my hair a lovely sheen on top and felt soft.I'd say it was quite good at hiding my split ends for some reason that's not so evident to me. I don't know why but it kind of made a shield over my split ends.
Overall ,John Frieda's Frizz ease 3 day straight hasn't been a great product for me and I will probably not be buying it again. But if you're interested in buying it ,I got it from Boots for £6.99.

Amazing Earrings -Part One Venetian and Dragonfly..

Hi guys .A little while  ago I received a package from Amazing Earrings.I am going to be doing a review on  one or two of their earrings daily .And how better to start than with my favorite of the lot?
I picked these Venetian Face mask earrings as they just struck me as different.They really stood out and I thought they were cute .They look very theatrical and bright ,two things I love.Another good thing about these are they don't hang off the lobe but they aren't invisible little studs either.They're not heavy , I know from the looks they look quite heavy but they're not.

 My second favourite are these butterfly or dragonfly earrings .I'm not sure which insect it is but they look beautiful.I really like these colors together- you wouldn't think that theyd go well together but they really do.The middle section has little diamonds which make it so much prettier .I just ;like how these look simple but extravagant at the same time.


So they are both very pretty ,girly earrings and I can't wait to find an excuse to wear them all .I think these would make great gifts too .They're completely affordable at $2.49 each which I think is a really good price.And also they look like really good quality too .So if you would like to buy any of these earrings or any  other types click HERE to take you to Liselle's website.
And if you really are spoilt for choice keep tuning in daily for more reviews on my choice of the earrings and how I thought they looked on me .

Aloe Oil Pro Salon Heat Protection Spray

Hi guys, today's review is on a Hair protecting Spray.Oh back in  the day how I used to straighten my hair without a thermal protector.Was I like blinded , no wonder I think my hair looks so much healthier!Honestly, you might think you don't need a hair protectant but believe me once you start using it you will never NOT use it again .So when it comes to heat protectants I don't go all out with the expenditure ,I just buy something that has good quality and looks like it might be good .So I picked up a  Treseme hair protectant which I am excited to try but I also picked up this Oil Of Aloe Pro Salon Hair Protection Straightening Spray .

 Now I don't think I've ever seen this in Boots or Superdrug but I got this product from Bodycare . I got this for £1.50, that's really cheap considering how well this turned out .
I really like how this hair protectant had sealing qualities ,the oil smelled really nice and when I straightened  my hair ,it like made my hair really straight .It was soft and I feel like my hair is a hell of a lot less damaged than it used to get.I feel like it helps seal shine in the hair too but I also feel like spraying an adequate amount in your hair results in stickyness ,which is annoying .


Overall, I will probably be using this every time I use heated appliances on my hair  but I will stop to use the Treseme one as I am really excited to try it .So this product is getting a four and a half stars out of five as it didn't have any major problems. .

Treseme Keratin Smooth Deep Treatment Masque

Hi guys , so I've been wanting to review this product for ages and I've finally gotten round to it .l love Treseme products and I always pretty much go back to them after giving up on other products.I've found that Treseme's products really do work and I'm probably best sticking with them.Well , today's review is on the Treseme Keratin Smooth deep Treatment masque .


I'm a huge fan of keratin too .I mean ,it makes my hair so much stronger and more resilient to future damage.The first thing that drew me to this product was the color though.I love the color red , it's just so vibrant and so eye catching !Well ,I guess to get noticed you have to stand out .


When I used this my hair felt so smooth and turned out frizz free.Frizz is often a problem with me as I have really curly hair and I tend to leave it natural a lot of the time .So it tames frizz and smooths .And on top of that my hair was so much more brighter and softer.My hair is bright enough as it's actually on the verge of becoming ginger! :(But it generally makes my hair look more vibrant and less dull looking .As for shine I don't think it really does make a difference but using this product has definitely helped me  maintain healthy hair.




I really do think that this was professional quality and also I know it's something I can rely on for healthy hair growth too . I don't actually use this product with the Keratin shampoo and conditioner .I just use the Treseme Color Protect shampoo and Conditioner and this works well with them too. I literally leave it on after conditioning for about two to three minutes for extra conditioning and you don't have to use it every wash you could use it once a week for good results too .I bought this from Superdrug for £2.95 which is actually half the price of what it was .So my advice would be to get it quick as they will probably be soon taking it back up to it's original price . Overall this product is getting five stars out of five as it is brilliant .

Monatgne Jeunesse week 4 -Glorious sunny summer skin Very berry moisturising face mask

Hi guys , so a while ago Montagne Jeunesse -a face mask company sent me a four week face mask regime called "Glorious sunny summer skin ".I have found all of these masks to be a delight to review as they have worked amazingly on my skin .I just love Montagne Jeunesse's products as they smell amazing .Well week 1 was an anti blemish mud mask ,week 2 was a cucumber peel off mask ,week 3 was a iced crystal and spearmint exfoliating scrub mask and this week's review is on the Very Berry Ultra Moisturisng and  cleansing face mask.(hover over for reviews )


First let me tell you a bit about the companny :

  • All Montagne Jeunesse face masks can be purchased and are available nationwide at Stores such as 
  • Asda ,Superdrug,Tesco,New Look and Morrisons.
  • All of their products are vegatarian approved,made from natural ingredients and are Paraben-free.
  • Montagne Jeunesse is proud of it's uncompromising natural credentials and ethos for "conservation of energy,protection of animals and the environment.
Now for those of you that have no idea what Paraben is ,I went ahead and did a little research for you.
Many companies nowadays use Parabens to preserve their products ,using these Parabens help reduce bacteria and fungus therefore the products can be used for a longer period. Paraben is  a chemical so It can be harmful to your body.
So Montagne Jeunesse DOES NOT use Parabens in any of their products , meaning these face masks are really healthy and  safe to use .



ON TO THE REVIEW-
I was really looking forward to trying this mask.Mainly for the smell because this mask contained ,blueberries and cranberries .This smelled absolutely amazing !From the moment I put it on till I went to bed -which was a good three to four hours the smell lingered .It wasn't too strong a scent but it was lovely and light.
What I also loved about this mask was the color .It came on my face as such a bright purple .




When I washed it off (after about 20 mins ) my face felt soft ,not amazingly soft but just ,moistured enough.I think it's also lifted some of my blackheads which is really good.My skin is glowing as usual after using a ,Montagmne Jeunesse mask and I can probably get another use out of this mask .
Overall I think this was a great mask ,an even better mask for those of you with dry skin and it was a good  expected finish to the face mask regime.


If you would like to purchase this or any other Monatagne Jeunesse face mask for only £1.09 click HERE .Or you can always pick up a few of these from Tesco ,New look ,Asda and Superdrug .

Ice diamond Straighteners -newer version

Hi guys , well my previous Ice Diamond straightener died *cries*.Well anyway ,I seriously used to think that GHD 's where the way to go till I found these badboy's !But when they broke I decided to get another seen as I wasn't really feeling like using Ghd's again.
I actually liked the pattern of the previous straightEners I got , personally black and bedazzled looks kind of cheap and tacky but oh well.


What I really like about these straighteners is how they have a change the heat thingy- me-bobs,you can change the heat of the straightener coming through the ceramic from 0 deg to 232deg -this is such a good thing as you don't have to be using the maximum temperature if you don't need it and less frazzle of your hair ;)


These are also really quick as to reach  the hottest temperature  at 230deg  it only takes less than  ten seconds ,though at the heat I like to use it around 170 -190 it only takes about five seconds for them to be ready .The advanced ionic technology restricts damage , reduces static and creates shine by closing the cuticle , locking in moisture,natural oils and hair color for natural hair protection.All of this is absolutely perfect for everyone !Talk about snap judgement .


These turned out to work miles better than I first thought they would .If you would like to purchase an Ice diamond straightener yourself click HERE for various styles and colors .I think these are definitely worth the hassle as they are only around £70 for proper  professional  results I'd say it's worth it .

Clinique 7 day scrub cream (rinse off formula )


Hi guys ,this post is on a face wash that I have been given in a gift by Clinique.Oh how I do love a good old gift !So I was really excited to try this face scrub -i should say,and I have just finished it so I will be off to Boots to buy some more.
The face scrub I am so adamant on buying is the Clinique 7 day Scrub Cream (rinse off formula ).So it's a 75ml bottle and it's lasted longer than seven days ,probably around three weeks to be honest.Which I am so grateful for.

The scrub is thick as per , it has the exfoliating beads embedded and you can really feel them get that dead skin washed away when you scrub .Normally when reviewing clinique products I say the make-up isn't for me and the toiletries are too rough on the skin.This time I take that back,this made my skin feel soft and supple and it cleared up my skin too (though I can''t really tell whether it's made that much of a difference seen as I'm using other medication to get rid of spots).


There's really nothing else to say , I've been using this day and night and I haven't really found any problems with it , just remember to moisturise afterwards !This one definitely deserves a five stars , boy I've not given one of them out in a long time .

Montagne Jeunesse Iced Crystal face mask ,Glorious sunny summer skin -week 3

Hi guys , this post is on week three of my Glorious Sunny Summer Body Monatgne Jeunesse face mask routine .Wow that was a mouthful !So as some of my more regular readers may know I have been sent four weekly face masks by Monatgne Jeunesse to try and I have *tried* to review them weekly ,but it's just not been happening !I've really not been posting an awful  lot recently ,I've just been so busy with school !Well anyway , if you would like to see week one and week two of the routine click HERE and HERE.
This weeks mask was one I have been looking forward to trying since I got these at the doorstep.Montagne Jeunesse's face masks always leave me feeling so calm and relaxed and I absolutely love them !Here is a bit about the company.


  • All Montagne Jeunesse face masks can be purchased and are available nationwide at Stores such as Asda ,Superdrug,Tesco,New Look and Morrisons.
  • All of their products are vegatarian approved,made from natural ingredients and are Paraben-free.

So Montagne Jeunesse DOES NOT use Parabens in any of their products , meaning these face masks are really healthy and  safe to use.
ON TO THE REVIEW-

So Week 3 resulted in the Iced Crystal Cooling Spearmint face mask.This particular mask is specifically made for exfoliating and cleansing the skin.What I really like about this product was how crystalized it was.When I massaged this mask on to my face it felt more like a scrub than a mask because I was exfoliating my face but I also felt like it was partly a mask as it was cleansing my face too.So this didn't really tighten my face as like I said it wasn't a very "masky" consistency.-DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE PICTURE ON THE FRONT !
This mask smelled very refreshing and minty.My first instincts were,my face was as dry as ghandi's sandals , ok not that dry but you get the picture.But then I moisturised and I realized ,wow my face is really soft !So as per usual , when you exfoliate you should moisturise , I found the same went for this mask .It's deffinately another one of montagne Jeunesse masks that I will be purchasing as I am itching to use it again .Honestly ,it's amazing at getting rid of my blackheads ! So I would thoroughly recommend this face mask to you and If you would like to purchase it remember Montagne Jeunesse face masks are available in  Tesco,Superdrug,Morrisons and New look and also on the website at  http://www.montagnejeunesse.com/face-masks/scrubs/iced-crystal-face-masque.
Keep hooked on dream reflection for next weeks review , The Very Berry moisturising Face  mask.

Montagne Jeunesse week 2 -Cucumber Peel off masque(glorious sunny summer skin )

 

Hi guys,So on to WEEK 2 of  the four week regime for the summer month , the "Glorious Sunny Summer Skin" by a face mask company called Montagne Jeunesse.I absolutely LOVE the different flavours that Montagne Jeunesse make in their face masks and they always leave me feeling relaxed and like I have really healthy skin .So here's a bit about the companny-


 


  • All Montagne Jeunesse face masks can be purchased and are available nationwide at Stores such as Asda ,Superdrug,Tesco,New Look and Morrisons.

So Montagne Jeunesse DOES NOT use Parabens in any of their products , meaning these face masks are really healthy and safe to use.
 
Enough with the heavy though , on to the review !
 
 
So this review is on the Cucumber peel of masque.Now when I used this I have to admit I wasn't too keen on the smell as I'm not a huge fan of cucumber but It was very refreshing .This particular facw mask works well on the T-ZONE at removing blackheads.After I'd used it I could really see the diffrence and it looked as if my blackheads had almost disapeared.
It was very cooling and soothing on my skin.After around fifteen minutes the mask become a clear film which just peeled off ,so I didn't feel any tightness or lack of expression that I usually feel from the mud masks. 
 
My skin felt really soft  afterwards,but I'm not sure whether this worked well standing next to the anti blemish mud mask .I think week 2 maay not have made that much of an impact on me .But overall I would reccomend it to you if you have very bad pores ,blackheads and all that jazz.So if you would like to purchase this mask or any other Montagne Jeunesse Face masks click on the link .http://www.montagnejeunesse.com/

Rimmel Silky Loose Face Powder

Hi guys, this post is on Rimmel's Silky Loose face powder in the shade 001 Translucent.So I feel like this powder  was ok I'll use it but I probably won't be buying it again.I have had this product for ages but I never tried it as I thought it had glitter in it .And I absolutely detest face products with glitter in !But after a couple of satisfied uses I thought I should review it for you !


The packaging isn't really anything special ,in fact I would have preferred it being smaller and without a dredger.The dredger made it hard for the powder to come onto my brush.I know the main reason it's there is to make the powder particles really fine and smooth but it wasn't a quick and easy process to apply the powder anyway.I prefer using non-loose powder as the loose powder is really messy .I wouldn't suggest using this anywhere that just recently been cleaned  as the powder literally goes everywhere.






As for the effects of the powder I think this mattified my face really well as it had a kind of semi -mattifying finish and kept my face looking bright.It felt really smooth and light on my face .It is translucent so it doesn't make you go lighter than your skin tone or anything so that's a plus but for some reason the transluscentness just didn't feel right for me.Like I wasn't too sure If I had put it all over my face evenly enough .I think the powder was  long lasting on my skin and therefore worked quite well.



Vatika Coconut Hair Oil

Hi guys, It's been a long time since i've blogged and it feels great having my laptop back.But I do have school starting tomorrow :( so I probbaly won't be blogging every day but I will try to do more regular posts once I get into the swoing of things at school.

Ok so this post is on the Vatika Hair Oil .I have been using oil in my hair for years however, it was  nothing regular.Nowadays I  use oil a lot more regularly because my hair is absolutely nakerd after dye-ing it  a lot.But using oil mostly originated from my asian herritage.And ever since I have been using oil my hair has been very healthy and I have found continuous use will make it maintain it's health.


This hair oil contains :
Henna -This coats your hair and protects it from oxidation,mintsining it's natural colour.(it doesn't actually dye your hair like henna usually does )
Amla -Strengthens the roots of your hair to help maintain their health and natural thickness.
Lemon -helps prevent dandruff.
The main ingredient is coconut ,which is generally a very good oil .
Theese four ingredients all contribute towards a healthy scalp and healthy hair.The actual oil is a solid which is kind of strange but once you put it on your hands the warmth of your palms warms it up and it turns to a liquid .









Using this oil as a twice a week deep conditionning treatment has really made my hair morre nourished,soft ,healthy and shiny .And I really think my hair has grown a little faster in length than it usually would which is a bonus.My hair is naturally thick but it also thickens your hair massively and rappidly.Overall this product deserves four and a half stars out of a possible five as it was just a little tricky to was completely out of my hair .Thsi can be purchassed from TESCO or some Indian supermarkets.
