L'Oreal True Match Foundation | Review

L'Oreal True Match Foundation | Review

L'Oreal True Match Foundation

After reading tons of rave reviews about it, I decided to give the L'Oreal True Match Foundation a try. I'd been wanting to try a new foundation for a good while and its promise of natural looking, flawless skin drew me in.

The thing that makes this foundation stand out from all of the other drugstore foundations is its shade range. There's a huge selection of shades to choose from; 23 to be exact - which is amazing for the high street. True Match caters for warm, neutral and cool tones - so there's a shade for everyone. Usually, I have trouble when trying to match a foundation colour as I find that many foundations are too pink toned for me. However, I didn't have any problem whatsoever with this range. I went with the shade "W4" as I have warm, yellow undertones and it matches my summer tan perfectly.

True Match has a silky texture and feels super lightweight on the skin. It gives medium coverage that is buildable and blends beautifully. It covers any blemishes and redness effortlessly and doesn't cling to any dry patches. I would say that this foundation gives a satin finish as it's not a dewy or matte finish, rather it's somewhere in between. It offers a flawless yet natural, skin-like finish with a hint of radiance and a brightening effect to the skin. I find that this foundation is pretty long lasting with no need for touch-ups; it stays put until the end of the day with minimal shine. It contains SPF17 and comes in a 30ml glass bottle with an inbuilt pump.

My thoughts overall? I love this product and I'd happily recommend it to anyone! It's my current favourite highstreet/drugstore foundation and I think it will be for a long while!

The L'Oreal True Match foundation is priced at £9.99 - and I think it's worth every penny!
It's available to buy from: Boots | Superdrug | Feel Unique |

Outfit: White Summer Dress

Outfit: White Summer Dress
Outfit: White Summer Dress
Dress: Primark
Floral Hairband: eBay
Necklace & Bracelets: H&M

On one of the recent sunny days we've had in London, I took the opportunity to wear this white summer dress. It was a bargain at just £5.00 - gotta love Primark! It's such a pretty dress that is so easy to wear. What I love about it the most is how comfy and light it feels. It's one of those dresses that you can just throw on and it will still look like you've made a decent amount of effort! I love the detailing on the top half of the dress and I think it's really flattering due to the fitted waist. It's also great for showing off your tan!

I teamed this dress with a gorgeous floral headband from eBay, a gold ring necklace, chunky bracelets and a pair of sandals. I love how feminine and girly this look is!

Avon Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask | Review

Avon Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask Review

Avon Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask Review
Avon Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask // Avon (£2.50)

One of my favourite things to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon is to apply a face mask. Not only are face masks incredibly relaxing, but they're also a great way to give your skin a bit of a pick me up. A face mask I've been loving recently is the Avon Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask.

This mask claims to act like a magnet and pull out any pore clogging dirt and leave your skin looking a lot clearer. It contains salicylic acid, an ingredient which is great for keeping your skin perfectly clear and spot free.

Due to its gel-like consistency, this mask is super easy to apply as it glides on the skin easily. It's a black colour when wet but once it dries, it turns a light grey. I find that it takes around ten to fifteen minutes to dry depending on how thick I've applied it. Once the mask is fully dry, my skin feels tighter, but not in an uncomfortable way. One thing I really like about this mask is the fact that you can see it's working. You can see where it pulls out the oils and in my case, it was mainly around the nose and chin area.

To remove the mask, take a damp face cloth and simply wipe it off. It comes off pretty easily with minimal effort. Once removed, I find that my skin is left feeling and looking clean, clear and soft.

All in all, this is an amazing face mask and I'd recommend it to anyone with combination or oily skin. It's originally £5 but it's currently on offer for just £2.50 - a definite bargain. It's available to purchase from Avon's online shop.

Weekend Wishlist

Recently, I've been dreaming of adding new summer pieces to my wardrobe. Think floral prints, pastels and brights! High street shops are really bringing it this season and as a result, I have my eye on quite a few pieces! Here are some I've been lusting over recently...

1) Tropical Print Co-Ordinates - Missguided (Crop top & Shorts)
2) Floral Dress - Missguided
3) Watch - ASOS
4) Flower Earrings - ASOS
5) Pink Purse - ASOS
6) Skort - New Look
7) MAC Vegas Volt - Debenhams
8) Floral Garland - New Look

My favourite pieces have to be the Tropical Print Co-ordinates from Missguided. The matching crop top and shorts set would be perfect to wear on those hot summer days we've been experiencing lately. Skorts are a summer must-have this season and I really like the look of this New Look pair. I adore its pastel, mint green colour! I've also had my eye on this beautiful Olivia Burton watch. It's a big dial watch with a tan leather strap and a gold tone trim - I love how it's such a classic, elegant piece. 

What's on your wishlist at the moment?

July Favourites

Hello everyone!

Yet another month has whizzed by, so it's time for me to share my favourites! For this month's favourites post, as well as sharing my most reached for beauty products, I will also be sharing a few music, book and fashion favourites. So, here they are! ~

Beauty ~

Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in "Peach on the Beach" - This is my current favourite summer lip shade and I've been wearing it quite a bit this month. It's a bright, peachy pink that is very flattering and wearable. It's also super easy to apply and I love its gorgeous, glossy finish.

Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara* - This product gives my lashes amazing length and volume and is my favourite highstreet mascara at the moment. You can read my full review here.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation - Recently, I've been loving the True Match foundation. It gives medium coverage that is also buildable. It's very easy to blend and is long lasting too - very impressive! I love the natural looking satin finish it gives. This stuff is amazing!

MUA nail polish  in "Frozen Yoghurt" - I picked this up on a whim when I was in Superdrug recently. It's a lovely lavender purple shade that looks really pretty on the nails. The formula is great; it's really easy to apply and is completely opaque after two coats. It also lasts long on the nails too.

Fashion ~

I've been wearing these jewellery pieces a lot this month. The triangle necklace is from Primark and I've found that it's great at jazzing up a plain outfit. The shamballa bracelet was bought from an independent shop and was only £1 - bargain!

Books ~

As soon as I started reading The Fault in Our Stars, I was hooked and read it all in a few days! The book follows the life of Hazel, a teenage girl with terminal cancer. Her life completely changes when she meets and subsequently falls in love with Augustus Waters.

This book is an amazing read and has a wonderful message - I'd recommend it to everyone. Make sure you have your tissues ready though, it's a real tear jerker!

Music ~

Music wise, this month I've enjoyed listening to:

~ Ed Sheeran's album "X" - I can't get the song "Sing" out of my head!
~ Sam Smith - I especially like the songs "Stay with me" and "Money on my Mind."
~ Ella Eyre's music - her voice is truly amazing! I love this song of hers.

So those are my favourites for this month! What are yours?
