Face of the day (Barely There) - April Fool's 2016

Hi Sparkles,
What do you mean I missed an Easter egg....?!?!

Are you about to embark on a long Thursday evening knowing you'll basically needto take the "dead" off your Friday morning work look? Sorry to be mean, but I'll probably still be snoozing or reading in bed since I'm off on leave this week - but fear not. I'm still here to help.

Easter Sunday was the day following one too many Bloody Marys and running up to some wine and excesses. I therefore wanted to look fresh and vaguely human but couldn't really be bothered putting in the effort to look insta-fabulous.

Look no further than the no makeup makeup.

Product list is below - my key tip would be that it's worth it to layer thinly on the skin to get a luminous finish but coverage where you need it. The Vitazing is definitely too dark for me, but a tinted moisturiser / luminser as a base is the way forward (as is perhaps a light dusting of bronzer) for days when you feel less than the best version of you. Go forth and blend kittens...

Til next time - love, hugs and happy weekending.

While I have yet to reach the heady heights of interest from sponsors, products indicated with a * were not bought and paid for by my own fair hand, or that of a friend or relation.

Face of the Day (or Night) - Easter 2016

Detract from eye bags with bright lipstick!!! And a tube of concealer...
Dear Sparkles

I was the eager recipient of some freebies (see pic below and on Instagram - not to mention upcoming posts) and set about colouring in ALL OVER MY FACE with glee this Saturday. It's so nice to have a few days off work and makeup is essentially meditation for me!

Full product breakdown is below.

Hope you all had a fab holiday and were able to pamper yourself as well as enjoy mucho choco.

Til next time - love, hugs and dark chocolate kisses

Matte lips - the Bourjois edition

Bottom right is actually a Color Boost pencil which I'll review separately.
Greetings Sparkles!!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter Sunday, but perhaps after the chocolate overload you'd like to perfect your pout today in order to dissuade yourself from ruining it with more morsels of delicious temptation.

In that case, look no further than your local Bourjois stand to achieve the 90s matte lip look which we saw all over the recent fashion shows. For those of you on Instagram you'll have seen that I received a selection of surplus testers from my sister's pal who works in a UK high street pharmacy chain. Unsponsored, but who am I to look a gift horse in the mouth - some of those items I already own in a different colour, others will be entirely new.
