Elemis has been on the scene for some time – and boy, they have accomplished a lot. their Pro-Collagen formulations are loaded with marine and plant actives that specifically target and treat fine lines and wrinkles. This day cream provides a significant improvement to the texture of skin. The result is a complexion that is more plump, smooth and younger-looking. However, maintaining the result requires constant application. Beauty does come at a cost – unless, of course, you have the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar. Yay!

6.Illamasqua Nude Collection Lip Liner – Raw, Retail: £16, www.lookfantastic.com

Illamasqua is a brand to look out for – they are fast-becoming a global sensation for creating amazing products. This liner is so creamy and easy to blend. I love to use it as a liner, then apply it directly to my entire lips. It is so good, that often, I do not need to follow with a lipstick. If you haven’t tried out Illamasqua yet, I recommend you put it on your to-do list. You won’t regret.

7.Rituals Ritual of Ayurveda Natural Dry Oil For Hair & Body (50ml), Retail: £19.50 (100ml), www.lookfantastic.com

Remarkably, it hasn’t been sourced from some witch’s coven. However, its creation has been drawn from ancient Ayurvedic traditions, and wow! Combining a perfect blend of sweet almond oil and basil, the treatment nourishes and softens the hair and skin with equal efficacy. Expect, pampered, rejuvenated skin and shiny, silky locks.

If there is one look that never fails on a date, it’s the smoky eye. One reason Morphe is a hero makeup brand is their stand-out eye shadow palettes. They always get it right on the mark. For daytime usage, I turn to neutrals. Mixing them up, I can create the necessary alert, yet subtly appealing image that works. In the evening this palette’s sexy, smoky eye colour effects are just the ticket. Morphe’s highly-pigmented and silky soft eye shadow palette combine both matte and delicate shimmery hues, that are too good to miss. Look fantastic’s choices are Amazing.

2.Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment (30ml). Retail price: £9 (60ml), www.lookfantastic.com

Created by world-renowned experts and bio-tech scientists (not quite sure what the job of a biotech scientist entails, but it sounds like these people would know their stuff). Basically, the components of their magical potion come from a biotech and medical angle – and in my opinion they are sheer genius. I can only go on the effect a product has on my hair and whether it delivers good results. The Living Proof has to be one of my top 3 haircare brands. If you are looking for an awesome multi-tasker – this has to be at the top of the list. A little of this product offers a targeted treatment by lovingly conditioning and strengthening your locks. I say ‘lovingly’ as when you apply the treatment you will feel so pampered, it’s as if Living Proof literally cares for your hair! This haircare treatment styles your hair like no other. If it were a fella, it would be ‘the ONE’. Polished and smooth? I think so!

3.Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner (50ml) Retail: £18 (200ml) www.lookfantastic.com

Door #3 of Look Fantastic’s calendar reveals the go-to toner for those with combination skin. Caudalie is a must-have brand for anyone’s bathroom cabinet. Their toner feels practically weightless and combines organic essential oils that effectively remove all impurities from the skin. Moreover, salicylic acid is included to further dissolve any debris within the pores, ensuring acne and spots are kept at bay, and even aids in smoothing the skin!  For optimal results use both morning and night. This is yet another product I seriously could not be without!

My Favourite Beauty Finds Of The Week: 6 Amazing Buys!

Hey Lovelies!

Each week I am sent various beauty items to test and review. It’s seriously the best job ever! After arduously checking out many, the following 6 beauty finds offer star-like qualities and are a must-have for anyone who loves beauty and a bargain. #Happy!

1, Max Factor Pan Stick (In Cool Copper), £5.47, www.amazon.co.uk

This isn’t the first time I have tried (and loved) Max Factor’s foundation stick and it certainly won’t be the last! Having tested pretty much every concealer and foundation on the market, this one keeps a firm footing at the very top. Firstly, it doubles up as both a concealer and foundation. If you have tried this you will know how seamlessly it blends into the skin, creating an instantly flawless second skin result. Furthermore, the Pan Stick succeeds where others fail on the most important factor – it lasts longer than a couple of weeks. Love, love, love!

2. The Superstar 22 Inch by Easilocks, £44.99, www.cultbeauty.co.uk

The Tiger Room

Oh…My…God. I think I have died and been reincarnated into a L’Oréal advert. This hair piece truly rocks. Made from non-human hair, yet these locks look unbelievably real. They would win in a Pepsi challenge against high price tag hair pieces any day of the week. The only point I should make is you must backcomb over the piece with your natural hair to achieve a blended-in and Insta-ready finish.

3.L’Oréal Infallible 24H Matte Liquid Foundation In Vanilla, £7.99 (30ml), www.boots.com

Should you be searching for a foundation that offers full cover, doesn’t cake and is reasonably priced, check out this one by L’Oréal. The long-lasting foundation provides a beautiful matte finish that even works on dry and more mature skin types. Simply gorgeous. Want even more perks? Check out the price!

4.Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2 Mascara, £25, www.charlottetilbury.com

It takes a lot to push me out of my MAC mascara comfort zone. However, upon checking out the sassy box I couldn’t wait to give it a go. This mascara in Black Vinyl makes me want to cry tears of joy (and then be even happier as it does NOT smudge one bit). Combining lash lengthening and thickening ingredients, the best-selling mascara will actually increase your lash thickness by a whopping 50% after just one single application! Furthermore, Legendary Lashes Volume 2 does not clump (HUGE PLUS) and offers a luscious lash finish of which any celeb would be proud. Each time I checked my lashes in the mirror I was very happy to see it hadn’t smeared under the eyelid or budged at all. My eyes remained in perfect and fit-for-a-Princess condition for the entire day and evening. A total win. Hooray!

5.The Ordinary High-Endurance Silicone Primer, £3.90 (30ml), www.lookfantastic.com

Everyone needs a good primer, but no one needs to spend a fortune. Behold The Ordinary’s Primer. Totally affordable and works like a dream. Your makeup is in place in the morning and is in exactly the same spot when you return. The Ordinary, you are awesome! What more need I say?

6.Collection Incredibrow Semi-Permanent Brow Gel In Light/Medium, £3.99, www.superdrug.com

Those of you who love gorgeous vegan beauty finds, you need to check out this semi-permanent eyebrow gel by Incredibrow. In the box you will find the gorgeous brow gel complete with eye applicator that achieves effortlessly flawless results. If you don’t enjoy waking up and scaring the hell out of your other half due to a distinct lack of brow, that makes you look – well, totally freaky and a bit scary, this is a must-have. If, however, frightening the crap out of him when he opens his weary hungover eyes is one of those long-term relationship amusements, maybe give this one a miss!

Beauty Products I’m Loving This Week

Hey Lovelies!

I had the opportunity to review some awesome beauty products last week. It was a tough process, but here is the narrowed down list of absolute faves, of which I am loving this week.

1.Paul Nasif Detox Pads / Complexion Perfecting Pads, $45, www.nassifmdskincare.com

So, I reviewed these pads some time ago and absolutely loved them. However, at the time I was also reviewing other anti-aging and glycolic treatments, so was not 100% certain that the results could be fully attributed to one product. Now I can. This is the only AHA/BHA treatment I have applied in the past few weeks and I am head-over-heels in love with them.

These pads are the lazy girl’s dream. They make light work of exfoliating, reducing the appearance of pores and smoothing the skin. Combining a retinol-like product, it is also a great item for those who react to retinol, but who want the anti-aging abilities.

The pads:

Contain both glycolic and salicylic acid that gently yet effectively cleanse and exfoliate.

 Combine antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antibacterial qualities

Offer anti-aging benefits

Is suitable for all ages

Vegan and cruelty-free.

Within a week of using the Detox Pads my skin looked clearer, healthier and luminous. And the best bit is the no-faff, no-fuss and no time to achieve this look fact! Yay.

2.False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara Mini MAC, £10, www.maccosmetics.com

I am totally obsessed with MAC’s False Lash Mascara Mini. It does everything I want my mascara to do, without clumping or smudging. I love how my lashes boast volume and since first testing this product it has become my daily go-to. Furthermore, it even fits in my purse. Believe that’s a win, win and – yes – another fabulous win. Thank you, MAC, you creator of all things fabulous!

3.NYX Cosmetics Professional Setting Spray Dewy, £7, www.superdrug.com

Don’t ask me why, but I get a real buzz out of reviewing setting sprays. This is a key product particularly in the heart of summer, and so having a good setting spray is vital for me. NYX provide some pretty good products and so I had fairly high expectations when I first tried their setting spray. Disappointed I wasn’t!

Having fairly dry patches coupled with the fact that I often work late into the night (causing bags), means that a setting powder is not the best fit. They usually cake, amplify dryness and any bags or creases, making them a no-no. This professional setting spray’s dewy formula is ultra-lightweight and once dry, you cannot tell you have applied it at all! It is important to allow a few minutes for the spray to dry, but once it has dried your makeup will not budge. Seriously, you can dance til 3 am and your makeup will stay gorgeous. Better yet, it’s vegan. Love, love, love this!

4 Of The Best Vegan Concealers Around

Hey Lovelies!

One product I consistently review is the concealer. A key product in anyone’s makeup arsenal; therefore, having a good one is of paramount importance. Now, with cruelty-free and vegan products in high demand, the selection is growing. This means no more do we need to settle for lesser quality or pay higher prices. I’ve tested many and the following are 5 of the best concealers around:

For EVERYTHING Concealer

1.Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Scultpting Concealer, £24, www.lookfantastic.com

Too Faced Super Coverage Concealer is my #1 product. This little gem ticks all the boxes: cruelty-free, vegan, free from parabens. Better yet, it is the lazy girl’s go-to product. The multi-tasker makes light work of its mission to conceal, contour, correct and highlight. Whatever your skin need, this liquid concealer delivers flawless results – AND IS NOT REMOTELY CAKEY!! Available in 16 shades, there is bound to be a shade to suit your skin tone. Too Faced, I love you!

For Discoloration and Longwear

2.Barry M All Night Long Concealer, £4.49, www.superdrug.com

Should your concern be predominantly discoloration and the need for long-lasting coverage, this is the perfect vegan concealer. Expect an even skin tone, soft-focus effect and a burst of luminosity. This concealer is so easy to blend, providing seamless results that stay put. For an added boost it combines moisturising and skin repairing vitamin E.

I would say a little of this concealer goes a long way. I found it best to just lightly apply to problematic areas rather than liberally splash on. The concealer certainly is long-lasting – I’m not sure about all night long, but it definitely stayed put until 3am!

This incredible vegan and cruelty-free liquid concealer is a game-changer for those with discoloration concerns.

For Dry Skin and Travel-Friendly

3.bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick (SPF25), £29, www.bareminerals.co.uk

Check out the first vegan water-based foundation stick. This product is composed of 30% enhanced mineral water, thus offering exceptional skin-loving support. For those with dry / dehydrated skin, this non-cakey stick will feel like a dream. Whether you wish to use this as a concealer, foundation or creamy contour, the vegan stick blends in seamlessly, providing truly flawless yet natural-looking results. Furthermore, this travel-friendly stick fits perfectly in your clutch, has an SPF25 and is available in an incredible 20 shades.

For Uneven Skin / Longwear

4.Smashbox Studio Skin Flawless, £20, www.lookfantastic.com

Should you have blemishes and uneven skin, Smashbox’s Studio Skin Flawless is awesomeness in a bottle. The lightweight vegan formula effortlessly conceals, evens the appearance of skin tone, contours and highlights. Dark circles and hyperpigmentation vanish before your very eyes – and unlike Cinderella’s midnight dilemma – this product will keep you looking radiant until at least 3 am (this is the time I collapsed at home).  However, Smashbox state the product stays put for 24 hours and given the seamless results many hours later, I am inclined to agree! Better yet, it is oil free and available in an amazing 30 shades!

5 Tips For Ensuring Your Makeup Stays Put In This Heatwave

Hey Lovelies!

Hot enough for you? We have embarked upon a heatwave that puts the UK well and truly in a siesta-worthy situation (about time, I say). But how do we ensure our makeup remains intact, so we stay looking incredible this summer? No, people we are not trying out at Alice Cooper impersonation auditions!  Check out these 5 top tips to keep our hard-earned flawless makeup looking awesome.

1.Preparation is Key

MAC prep+ Prime skin

Okay, after applying a hydrating moisturiser and SPF, it is vital to prep your skin with a primer that is perfect for both your skin type and the weather conditions. Look for a product that is long-lasting, sweat and waterproof. For info on this you can read my Best Primers For Every Skin Type here. I love Mac’s Prep+Prime. £23 (Look Fantastic).

Water-Based Foundation

Oil-based foundations and extreme sweating do not mix. Therefore, it is better to opt for a light and water-based foundation, whilst we are in heat that could win in a Pepsi challenge with the temperature of Egypt right now. A great one is Lancôme’s Teint Miracle Foundation SPF 15, £33.50, John Lewis. The formula feels lightweight and yet luxurious, is long wear with a matte finish and provides a super-boost of hydration your skin will appreciate. Awesome!

If you are planning on going for a dip, Urban Decay’s new Waterproof Foundation is a dream £22, Urban Decay. Lightweight, long-lasting and available in 50 shades. Urban Decay – you rock!

3.Don’t Overdo Products

Giphy

Layering is not a great idea during the el scorchio weeks. Keep your makeup routine light and simple. Too much and it won’t end well. Believe me! A little dab of mineral-based powder once you have applied your foundation will go a long way.

4.Mascaras and Eyeliners

Diorshow waterproof mascara
Dior

Steer clear from eyeliners if at all possible. When it comes to mascaras opt for a good waterproof one like Diorshow Waterproof Mascara £28, Dior. This mascara speaks volumes (pardon the pun). No clumping, no smudging just a luscious look that stays put even when droplets of sweat are forming on your forehead – 39 degrees – bring it on!

5.Setting Sprays

Choose a good setting spray that will guarantee your makeup is in the same place as when you applied it (rather than an inch lower on your face). I love Urban Decay’s All Nighter, £24, Look Fantastic.

Have you tried any of these products and what are your thoughts?

Have a great day tomorrow and keep cool. Xx

Hey Lovelies!

I used to love the different flavoured lip glosses, so I’m stoked to hear they have made a comeback. Now we can have gloss for our lips, cheeks and eyes! Check out some of the best glosses around that have me totally smitten.

1.Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss, £28, www.dior.com

I am completely in love with this glossing lip plumper by Dior. It basically offers an ultra-gloss effect with amazing lip hydrating and plumping benefits. Available in 18 different colours with 3 shine effects from which to choose: sparkling, iridescent and sheer. I tried 765 UltraDior which provides a gorgeous pink sheen with subtle red undertones. A romance must-have for that special evening out.

2.Chanel Baume Essentiel (Sculpting) £33, 8g, www.chanel.com

Before you write this off the moisturising highlighting balm as a luxury item, the ‘Sculpting’ Baume Essentiel can be used for both the cheeks and eyes (saving you from nipping out to buy a separate product for the eyes). Suitable for all skin tones, this gorgeous glossy and delicate-pink shimmer reflects the light and looks incredible on both my cheekbones and eyelids. It is impossible to create an OTT look, but rather it provides a perfect dewy finish of which we all crave.

3.3INA The Eye Gloss, £9.70, 3ml, www.feelunique.com

3INA Eye gloss

This vegan eye gloss is amazing. It comes in an applicator pen making it so easy to use (and difficult to over-use). The gloss looks fabulous either with or without eyeshadow. The result is a beautiful dewy shine on those lids and enhancing your overall look, so you feel nothing but gorgeous. The eye gloss is available in 3 awesome shades.

Gloss can immediately upgrade your look and give you an amazing dewy shimmer that works so well in this beautiful sunshine.
