Mac Studio Sculpt Foundation Review!

I have been trying out new foundations lately seeing as the winter is coming and I'm getting paler, my other foundations were a little too dark! I went to the Mac store and got the Mac Studio Sculpt Foundation in NC15...... It was $29.00.

Firstly I want to talk about the color.... while the NC15 in the Studio Fix Fluid was almost too dark for me, the Studio Sculpt was way too light. I looked like a vampire lol! The NC15 in the Studio Fix has a slightly more yellow tone, whereas the Studio Sculpt is more neutral. I like yellow.....

The foundation is a gel base, so it's a thicker consistency. I applied it with my Mac 183 brush, which was fine but after I had applied it I just wasn't in love. I didn't really like how it looked on my skin, you could see it in my pores and it was almost a little cakey looking without the amazing coverage :( I really wanted to love this foundation but I just don't. So needless to say, I will be taking it back to Mac tomorrow and my mission for a light yellow based foundation continues......

It's also super hard right now because since I've been pregnant, my skin has changed so much. I have been super oily my whole life but now my skin is starting to get dryer and so my usual foundation routine is not working as well as it used too. But it's like I'm in between, I'm not fully dry but I'm not oily, so it's very difficult. I have never had to worry about being dry before..... its so strange to me lol so I think maybe changing the type of foundation will help..

If anyone has any recommendations for a foundation that has a yellow tone, great shades for light skin and has fabulous coverage without looking nasty on my skin then please let me know!!!!

Thanks my Loves xxxxxx

Olive Oil..... Not Just For Cooking :)

I was talking to my sister the other day and she said she had been using baby oil to remove her make up. I wanted to try it out but didn't have any, so I was looking around my house for something similar and then I spotted my Olive Oil!!! I figured why not??? It's oil, it's natural and what do I have to lose?

I have been using it now for over a week and I'm in love! I use it 2x a day as a make up remover and as my moisturizer. To remove my make up, I just put a quarter size amount in my dry hands and start massaging it all over my face (including my eyes)..... massage for a minute or two and then with a cotton pad just remove all of the oil. After that I get a very warm, wet washcloth and hold it on my face for 20 seconds, rinse and then repeat until all of the make up and oil is off. Once everything is removed I get a pea size amount in my hands and massage it onto my face for a few minutes and I'm done :)

I have noticed a major difference in the softness of my skin, as well as less break outs and less blackheads and small bumps.... my face feels so smooth and less irritated. I'm hoping after a few months of using it, that I will really see a big difference. I was so surprised using as a moisturizer, seeing as I am oily..... I thought it would make me a MAJOR greaseball, but it's almost as if it has balanced my skin out and I'm not nearly as oily as I was before!! It's so strange but fabulous!

Anyway my Loves, I recommend trying this and I'm pretty sure everyone has it in their kitchen cupboards :)

Michael Todd Cosmetics Review!!!

This last month I have been wearing the Michael Todd Cosmetics eyeshadow and primer... absolutely LOVE the color I was sent which is Mystical. It's a beautiful smokey grey with a hint of purple undertone to it, however depending on what you wear it with, it can be a warm or a cool grey! WHICH I LOVE FOR FALL!!!

It's 3 grams in size, which is so nice because it's a lot of shadow! And for the price, I think is a great deal! It's also a frosted shadow so the shimmers in it make it look in certain lights like your wearing jewelry on your eyes!! The eyeshadows are $8.99 and the eyeshadow base is $14.50. You can get yours here:  if you are in the U.S and if you live in the U.K click here: 

I also received the Eye Shadow Base, which I love too! The formula stays on, helps your shadow to not crease and I have oily lids!!! When you put it on your lids, it just melts into the skin so that there is no look of anything on the eye, but the booboos are covered up! You don't need much, a little goes a long way!
