Superdrug Deep Cleansing Fruit Mask | Review and Face Swatch Picture

 I love face masks and mostly buy sachet masks so I can try different ones. This was from Superdrug and it was only 99p (plus buy 3 get one free!).

('scuse the crazy hair; had just returned from a busy London day)

I liked the smell - it was fruity and sweet.
I think it'll last me about 3 uses as it's a big sachet.
It didn't break me out.


it didn't do anything!!!
My skin looked exactly the same and felt exactly the same!

I won't repurchase this but still want to try more from the line!

love Lizzie

ps. bathroom tour/more face mask reviews?

Collection (2000?) Ultimate Fix Compact Foundation in Ivory | Review and Swatch

Is it still Collection 2000 or is it just Collection?

I don't think I've spoken about this yet but I've been using it for a while - I had a day about two months ago where our telly stopped working and I felt really down so I went with my Mum to her later hair appointment and did some late shopping (did I tell this story already?) and so bought this (and a lot of other stuff x).

so... let's get reviewing!

The Facts

3 Shades (Ivory, Honey and Biscuit)
£4.99 from Superdrug and Boots
Cream Compact Foundation
 SPF 15

Collection Says

- Combines concealer, foundation and powder in one, making it even easier to achieve naturally beautiful skin.
- Contains SPF15 to care and shield skin from harmful UV rays.

- Magically transforms from a lightweight solid to liquid foundation, and sets as a matte powder so your skin stays moisturised and looking shine-free for longer.


1.) It's extremely easy to apply with a duo-fibre brush (not a sponge!)

2.) It gives really good coverage (medium) without looking at all cakey

3.) It's reasonably priced

4.) It is long-wearing (6-8 hrs)

5.) It's matte (good or bad - up to you?)

6.) The packaging is really useful - the compact conatins space for a sponge and a large mirror.

Overall, I really like this poduct and would recommend it to most skin types, just not the extremes (super dry or super oily) as it does cling to some dry patches if they're flakey and would slide off very oily skins.

Hope you enjoyed the review! Any post requests?

Nivea Daily Essentials Tinted Moisturising Day Cream in Natural | Review and Swatch

So... this is my first beauty post in a while. I did a bit of shopping over the weekend (oops ..x) and picked up a few bits including this. I'd been eyeing it up for a while and was waiting for it to go on 1/2 price and when it did I snapped it up.

What is good?
Well, it gives more coverage than most tinted moisturisers that I've tried (Stila, Natural Collection) and covers all my redness and hyperpigmentation. It's also enough moisture for me to just use as a day cream over my SPF even with my dryer skin. It's also very glowy and makes my skin look really healthy and dewy and amazing (even if I do say so myself). 

And what is bad?
Okay, so I say glowy and gorgeous but I think the fact of that is because it's a little too dark - this is because there is only one shade 'Natural' however it does sort of blend into your natural skintone. This shade is probably best for medium skintone though! The SPF is pretty poor at only 8 so a seperate SPF is needed for summer. 

I love this product and it works amazingly on my skin - I would highly recommed it to everyone and when it's currently on offer fro £2 you cannot go wrong!

Available from Superdrug for £1.79 and from Boots for £3.66

Monthly Favourites | April 2013

OMG it's May... I cannot believe it. This month has been super busy at school and I am super tired but tests are still to come (harder when your Italian teacher expects 100% from everyone and is giving us 13 year-olds GCSE papers - ie for Americans, BIG tests for 16 year-olds). PS: Sorry they're late - I've had trouble uploading pictures.

Anyway, I am here to share my let's begin!


 Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - £8.99
This gives my skin an amazing glow and good coverage whilst still looking natural - it's a love!

Miss Sporty 'Morning Baby' BB Cream - £3.49
This gives next-to-no coverage but is great for a glow for school or a lazy day.

e.l.f shimmering facial whip in Lilac Petal - £1.50
OMG - if you want an amazing glow (noticing a pattern - I am) mix this into your foundation and then dot it onto your cheekbones and centre of the face. I makes you look amazing!!!

e.l.f blush in candid coral - £3.75
My least favourite e.l.f blush made my new spring fave - I like the berry colours for winter and now I'm breaking out my corals, peaches and pinks - yay x!

benefit 'it' stick - discontinued (sorry!)
My mum found this in a box of bits for 50p at her work and thought of me - and I love it! It works well all over and under the eyes too - I'm so sad that it's discontinued (then again that stops me spending money on high-end makeup)

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze - £4.99
I cannot believe that I have almost every colour tattoo and I didn't have this one! This is so gorgey on its own or with shadow over the top. Colour Tattoos always help my eyeshadow to last as even with a high end primer nothing lasts on my lids.

Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya - £7.99
One of the new shades - and defo my favourite. It is a sort of orange/coral/peach with no shimmer - it looks quite glossy and sheer on the lips and is my new fave colour.

MUA Lipgloss in Shade 3 - discontinued (sorry... again)
I love the smell of this - vanilla - my favourite scent. And the colour's pretty and natural with a non-sticky formula.

Skin and Body Care

 Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Body Lotion - £10.00
One pump per leg and 1/2 a pump per arm for this lotion. It is super moisturizing and makes my skin really smooth.

L'Oreal Micellar Water - £4.99
Although this doesn't remove waterproof mascara as it claims it removes all my other makeup and even if I was to pour it into my eyes it would not sting (trust me, large amounts of this has gotten into my eyes). Amazeballs.

Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturiser - £3.49
Holy. Grail. Product. It's really thin so it's easy to blend in, contains no SPF so it doesn't lower my other SPF and keeps my skin clear all the time I wear it. Seriously - no blemishes whatsoever! It also works as a spot treatment and is good for all skintypes - I have dry skin and it works for me and I could easily see it working for oilier skins too.

Beautiful Creatures Book
I loved this book so much - sort of like Twilight but with different magical themes. I fell in love with the characters and cried when death occured (spoiler!). A definite recommendation!

Vanilla Coke
YESSSS! It's back and I am over the moon - I've been making my own for the past few years and now I don't have to. My favourite drink and I love it!

So those are my favourites! Tell me in the comments of you have any favourites and if you've tried any of mine.
May's going to be a really amazing month - my relatives from Japan are in town and it's great to see them and May is my favouite month of the year because of... EUROVISION! I am a complete Eurovision obsessee and I cannot wait for it... the singing, the performers, the cheese!
