Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had fun over the festive period. I had a great time with family and managed to fly to the US to see the boyfriend which was a bonus. I hope this year brings you everything you wish for!
2015 was a great year for finding new products and giving some love to some golden oldies (that sounds odd doesn’t it). I tried to keep the list small, so here we go:
As you know, I’ve been trying to limit my beauty product buying. It’s been so difficult, but now I am going back to university, I really can’t afford to keep buying products that I don’t really need. I did splurge a bit when I went to Paris recently, blog post about what I bought coming soon. I’m just testing out the products at the moment 😛
Like every self respecting cosmetics junkie, I have beauty products everywhere. Hand bag, coat pocket, desk, floor… (never), but you get the picture.
Hello my beauties. I have to apologise for the massive lack of posts recently. I left Melbourne, Australia at the end of December and did some traveling to Sydney, Gold Coast, Hawaii, LA.
Now I’m back in England. I’m job hunting once again so my blog has been on the back burner for a bit. But I do love writing it, so I thought I’d do a quick little tag post to get things going again 😀 I hope you guys don’t mind. This tag has been making the rounds on Youtube, so I thought I’d cover the questions here.
This is a review of Rimmel’s Wake Me Up foundation. I bought this foundation mainly because I didn’t wanna buy BareMinerals or Revlon Colourstay over here in Australia. Both are way over priced ($34+) and I shall just repurchase both when I head to America in January. Anyway, I digress… Yes … I chose the Rimmel foundation for a couple of reasons:
1. I heard Tanya Burr or Pixi2woo talk about it. I love her and trust her opinion. Check out her lovely channel 🙂
2. It was relatively cheap. $18
3. I liked the idea of a foundation to perk up my skin. I work in an office and the lights are not flattering.
What does Rimmel claim?
Taken from their website:
“It’s time to wake up – the light, smooth texture glides on easily to give a 100% pore-less and flawless complexion. Spoil yourself with SPF 15 sun protection and illuminating radiance pearls for a natural glow”.
“Wake Me Up works just as hard as you – staying put for up to 10 hours and giving you a natural, medium to full coverage. So even if you’ve had a few hours sleep, you can look radiant and younger”.
Let’s see if it lives up to these claims….
