Clinique Super City Block SPF 40

Hey Blogletts,
So I was snooping around boots, oo it sounds a bit conspicous rather that just browsing. I was browsing around boots and took a sneaky look at the clinique counter (again with the shifty words) and came across this beauty. I have heard a few good reviews on this product and thought I would give it a go. Basically it is an SPF or sunprotection for your face and we all know how important SPF is. Now you can normally find it in most products so don't all freak out and be running round screaming 'I have no SPF!!' However I'm going on holiday soon and don't want a lot of makeup on and don't want regular sunscreen to break me out.
The description says 'Remarkable sheer, weightless formular contains high-level SPF sun protection plus a boosted level of antioxidants. Provides added hours of protection fron UVA/UVB rays and environmental aggressors.' Now all I got from this is it is a SPF with added words, but I am hoping it will prevent my youthful skin from ageing.
It will be quite difficult for me to review this as it has effects that aren't really visible, however I will update you on whether I keep using this.

The only negative is that it has a funky smell, however it is by clinique which makes me think that it will be ok for sensitive skins.
What SPF do you use, if you use any?
Bye for now xx

Cream Blusher Collection

Hey Blogletts,
So I have a few cream blushes and thought I would whip them out to remind myself of what I have and let you know what I think about them.

Left to Right - Benetint, Topshop 'Flushed', Stila 'Petunia', Revlon 'Pinchced', Maybelline '02', Clinique 'Shy blush', Stila 'Berry Flash'.
I'd have to say my top 2 are Topshop 'Flushed' and Revlon 'Pinched' as they are subtle yet look B.E.A.UTIFUL.
The worst one has to be Maybelline '02' as it is breaks me out BADLY.
This has been helpful to discover some loves of mine and I hope you like the look of some of them too.
What is your favourite cream blush.
Bye for now xx

February Favourites

Hey Blogletts,
So February has come to an end and the wonderful month of March has started (closer to spring yay) and so it's time to see what I have been loving this month ...
Base -
Now from the last post, you know I am loving the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation, but when I haven't felt like wearing a full face, I have been using the Rimmel BB Cream. Both of these are amazing products which give me the coverage that I want and do the job.

Concealer - I have a very love hate relationship with this product and thats the Collection (2000) Lasting Perfection. I go through stages of 'Ohmygod this is a wonder product' and 'Ohmygod this is the worst thing ever. Currently I am loving it for covering up blemishes and scarring and it just covers everything and lasts for a long time.

Eyeliner - Now it is more the concept than the product, but this month I have been loving winged eyeliner. The product I have been using is the Collection (2000) Fast Stroke liquid liner. Now I don't love this eyeliner but it is all I have at the moment and I don't want to buy a new one till it's used up, but I'm loving the liner look.

Mascara - I am loving the Soap and Glory Thick and Fast mascara! I normally don't go for non water proof mascaras as I end up with panda eyes, however I quickly layer a water proof mascara over the top and I'm good to go. This mascara lengthens and thickens and just makes my lashes look amazing!

Hair - I got a sample of Loreal Elvive Extraodinary Hair oil with InSyle Magazine and WOW. This stuff is brilliant. I use it in wet hair and as a finishing touch and it makes my hair so soft and so ... just WOW. I am going to be purchasing the full size as soon as I go out and please go and try this ... it will change your hair.

So there we go, a round up of February 2013!
What are your fave's this month??
Bye for now xx
