♡ physicians formula nude wear ♡

Firstly, could this packaging be any cuter?  I got these cuties as a Christmas gift and have been trying them out for a while.

Haven’t used this as much as I would like because it is very shimmery, but I have heard that this shimmer is more of a layer on top so perhaps that will disappear with some use.

Nude Wear Touch of Glow Foundation (centre)

This is probably my favorite foundation of all time! I can’t say much about the little applicator brush that comes with because I feel it soaks up a lot of the product, however I do use it to dot the foundation on my face and I’m just using my fingers to spread it evenly. I do have a foundation brush I just haven’t got around to washing it. Oops.

Despite the cuteness of this chubby little thing I don’t like it all that much. It’s just very sparkly. As someone with oily skin I can say extra sparkle doesn’t look cute all over your face. Even trying to utilize this as a highlighter gets tricky. There is just too much sparkle! I also feel it might be a touch too dark for my skin at the moment since I’ve become extra pale over winter.

Some not very good swatches 😦

review: Ole Henriksen 3 little wonders mini

Good morning or afternoon or night! I always forget that those you guys could be in a totally different time zone! It’s cray. Anywho, a month or two ago I purchased the Ole Henriksen 3 little wonders mini skin care system from Sephora and have been dying to do a review on it, so finally I took some pics to accompany all my blabbing. Here we go…

full view

This is a three part system: two moisturisers, and a serum. The serum is supposed to be used in the morning, but I use it at night too. I just can’t get enough of it. It has a potent vitamin C complex which makes it smell amazing. I have really noticed a difference in my complexion thanks to this little magic bottle. Truth is,  this is my second mini bottle of this stuff. The first sample size I got was in some goody bag from Sephora. I ended up loving it and  purchased it on my own. This serum alone is very pricey, that’s why I got the small sample size kit because I find it still lasts quite a while.

serum

The first of the two moisturizers is “sheer transformation” for morning or night. It has a creamier consistency which makes it a bit more hydrating and great for the fall/winter when cold winds leave your skin feeling dry. I found this to be very light and didn’t make my skin feel oily.

The second moisturiser is the “invigorating night gel”. I love it. This  feels like a mini overnight facial. When I wake up in the morning and wash my face it feels like a ‘protective’ layer  has been performing miracles on my skin all night and it feels incredibly soft.

Seriously going to be repurchasing this mini system again in the future, and possibly gifting it to someone this christmas.

Thanks for taking the time to read and I hope you have a wonderful day, or night. ❤

future hair stylist here

The other day I was messing around and trying out some hairstyles on my sister. I don’t think they turned out too bad either. The first style was actually something I saw in a video, here. I didn’t do it quite the same, but that’s where I got the inspiration to try it out, plus she has a  ton of styles on her channel that I want to try out eventually.

I couldn’t quite get the loops to sit perfectly so there’s a big gap. I think teasing the hair a bit might fix this though.bun1

twist2Just some braiding gone crazy. I don’t really know what’s going on here. It needs some perfecting.

Hope you liked my attempt at being fancy, and thanks for reading!
