Quarter 1 2016 Favourites – Skincare & Bodycare

I haven’t done a favourites post in a while and I thought I would do a “Quarter 1 2016” favourites, broken down into three parts.
1. Skincare & Bodycare
2. Nailcare & Haircare
3. Makeup & Other

Why three parts? Because there’s going to be a lot of products in each category and I didn’t want the post to be extremely long (win win for everyone).

As I get older, I try to make a conscious decision to take better care of my skin, this includes my best attempts to eliminate unnecessary chemicals from products I use. So, for my skincare and bodycare, I try to use natural products where possible. However sometimes, I haven’t found an option that has completely won me over, so I use “mainstream” products.

Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick Swatches

There’s a new lipstick at the drugstore and it’s called “The Only 1” by Rimmel. Having big claims that it’ll be the only lipstick you’ll need. Well let me be the judge of that…

On their website, it is described as:
• A no compromise all-in-one lipstick that is challenging the lipstick history.
• The perfect balance of high impact colour, moisture, all day comfort and staying power
• Slanted lipstick bullet for an effortless application. Continue reading “Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick Swatches”

L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation Review

Cushion foundations have been all the rage recently and I admit, I’m a bit late to the game, as I didn’t know much about them. Previously, this type of product was only available via high-end brands, but now there’s a version that will be available at a more affordable price point.

In this post, I’m going to share my thoughts on the new L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation that will be hitting stores this month. Note that I’ve been using this foundation everyday for the past week. Continue reading “L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation Review”

Cinque Terre is located on the Northern West coast of Italy and consist of five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. Continue reading “Postcards from Cinque Terre”
