Spring Makeup Haul

With the weather finally getting warmer and the nights becoming lighter, I'm ditching the full coverage foundations and the berry hues in favour of lighter products more suited to spring. Boots recently had a 3 for 2 offer across all of their beauty products, so I took the opportunity to pick up a few things that I had been lusting after for a while. 

The first thing that I picked up from Boots was the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in the shade ivory. I've never tried a base product from Bourjois before, but I'd read a lot of positive reviews about their new CC cream online. The term 'CC' stands for 'colour correction', and it contains three different colour pigments: apricot for anti-fatigue, green for anti-redness, and white for anti-dark spots. I tried this for the first time the other day, and I was really impressed with the results. It felt lightweight on the skin, and left my complexion looking healthy and luminous. The only thing that lets this product down is the limited shade selection, but if you can find one to match your skin tone, I would definitely recommend checking out.

I also decided to try the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Eye Concealer. For me, the best thing about this concealer is the silicone applicator. It makes the product really easy to apply, and doesn't drag on the delicate skin underneath the eye. 
Whilst browsing the Bourjois stand, I finally decided to pick up a tub of their Magic Nail Polish Remover. I've been wanting to try this product for a while, but I was a little unsure about the concept. I've used it a couple of times since I bought it, and I can completely understand why it gets so much hype. I just stick my nails in the foam, wiggle them around a little, and it completely removes all traces of the nail polish. After discovering this super quick and easy method of removing nail polish, I don't think that I will ever buy a bottle of traditional nail polish remover again. 
I'm a huge fan of the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks. The formula is super moisturising, and they have a slightly glossy finish so the colour doesn't cling to any dry patches on the lips. I picked up the shade in love with ginger which is a really beautiful, vibrant orange-red. 
I've had my eye on the L'oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipsticks for a while, but after reading mixed reviews about them online, I wasn't sure whether they were worth picking up or not. L'oreal say that these apply like a lip gloss, have the colour intensity of a lipstick, and feel soft like a balm. With them being part of the 3 for 2 offer in Boots, I decided to try out Rose Symphony which is a pretty pink shade. 
Now that we're getting into spring/summer, highlighters are becoming a staple in my makeup routine again. I had a No7 voucher collecting dust in my purse, so I decided to put it to good use and pick up their Instant Radiance Highlighter. I've tried quite a few different highlighters, but I've never owned one like this before. It's like a big, wind up chubby stick in a gorgeous champagne shade. This is a fantastic product if you're looking for a fool proof highlighter that you can apply in a rush, and then throw in your handbag. 
During my early teens, I was literally obsessed with lip gloss. I used to walk around with lips that looked like they had been smothered in grease, whilst reapplying my clear lip gloss at every opportunity. It's been years since I've bought a lip gloss, but these have a none sticky formula and feel really light on the lips. I chose the Maybelline Colour Sensational Shine Gloss in the shade glorious grapefruit, and the Maybelline Colour Sensational Cream Gloss in the shade cashmere rose.

  1. How to restore a broken relationship and marriage ,Love Spells That Really Work Fast

    My name is Mark Davis, my family and i live in London UK.It was after seven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I didn't know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the affair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I notice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her neck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also usually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy she stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that makes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly excuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space for a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he brought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had picture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other photo of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by someone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her the pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn't look at it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i just found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill her but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to hurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even got custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i tried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old daughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her friend but turned out all bad.I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr brave really made my life much better cos he gave me my family back.He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he had the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something that will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has always been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should have never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her life with her high school lover was great before Dr brave castled the spell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself that why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr.Brave can do such a thing contact him to solve your problem with his ,or kindly visit he website .
