Review: L’Oréal Infallible 24hr Foundation

I’m so happy to be back at reviewing some products! I realise that they’re few and far between but I do love writing a good, detailed review. It’s just not often that I have enough to say about a given product and you should know that I want to give a quality review as much as I want to be interested in the product I’m reviewing whether for a good reason or a bad reason. Today, I’ll be reviewing the L’Oréal Infallible 24hr Foundation. I bought this foundation completely on a whim with no prior knowledge to it. I seldom watch beauty YouTube anymore so I have no idea, no recollection, of whether this foundation has been hyped about or not. I have also not read a review to do with this product so this may be the most unbiased review you’ll have seen me write. Let’s begin shall we? FYI – I have combination/oily skin with the tendency to suffer from dehydration. I purchased the foundation in shade 120 Vanilla. What is it? It’s …

My Current Hair Styling & Treatment Routine

We’re moving into a slightly different topic today which is something I never talk about: hair. The reason being is that I’m very low maintenance when it comes to my hair. Give me a hairdryer and I’m good to go. I don’t use heat spray nor do I straighten or curl my hair. (For the record, my hair is already very straight.) However, having gone for the chop just over 2 months ago, I have found the joy in styling my hair now and again. Here’s my (very) easy hair styling routine for those higher-than-low maintenance days where you fancy something a little bit extra! — If you follow me on Instagram, then you may recall me attending my best friend’s wedding as bridesmaid. In the lead up to that, I couldn’t cut my hair even though I really wanted to so my method in keeping my hair as healthy as possible was in using a hair mask. Normally, you would just use this once a week but for me, I upped this to twice …

Review: NYX HD Finishing Powder

It’s been over 6 months since my last review! This is actually one that I had written up a few months ago but for some reason, I never made it live. For those who are new to my reviews, they are a little few and far between as I tend not to follow trends or review products that are popular or hyped. In fact, I usually do the opposite! (I think it is much more authentic this way.) I am however looking to put out more reviews this year than I did in 2019. Right, let’s jump into the review for today shall we? What is it? It is described as a ‘lightweight translucent powder that helps soften the appearance of fine lines and pores’. How much does it cost? £9. Not super expensive but for a drugstore brand, it’s not exactly cheap either. I think drugstore products are getting more expensive overall though. Where from? NYX is readily available in Boots and Debenhams in the UK. I purchased mine from Boots. Who is it …

How Much Does My Skincare Routine Cost?

It’s probably not the right time in the year to talk about money but everyone knows that I’m a self-proclaimer in not following trends. 😛 Besides, I am not making you buy a product; we are just having a discussion because who hasn’t thought about the accumulated cost of a particular category? I had thought about joining the gym this year but when doing the math, I didn’t think that me spending £300 a year was going to be efficiently used because I actually wouldn’t go (I don’t enjoy it enough to go). Skincare on the other hand…I wouldn’t say I would spend profusely on it but certainly there have been times where I’ve spent money on the whim without looking at descriptions or reviews of the product(s) in question. I have never calculated how much my skincare routine is worth so this could turn out to be very interesting. For those who follow me on Instagram, I already shared one of my skincare routines. That’s right, I am currently running two skincare routines so …

My First Project Pan

For someone who loves compiling Empties posts, I can’t believe that I’ve never planned a Project Pan and documented it! In my mind, there were a few items that I had wanted to empty out last year or at least use more of however this never got achieved so again, some of the items remain collecting dust. Nevermind being a beauty blogger – I mean I am not really invested in that title, but as someone who has spent money on lots of items, I ought to be more responsible in using up the products unless it is really bad. So here’s my attempt at being more responsible this year and less of a hoarder! The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 60% left to be used I don’t know what it is but I just don’t naturally reach for this. It took me a long time to open this and when I finally did, I didn’t find myself being excited enough to use it. It’s not actually a bad product per se but is …
