Foundation Swatches

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be showing you some swatches of my foundation collection! My collection has downsized significantly and I only really have foundations that I can wear and that don't make me look like I have an entirely different coloured face.
For reference, I have quite pale, warm toned skin. I suit quite yellow looking foundations and a lot of foundations can make me appear too pink or flushed if they're the wrong shade. I also did some swatches of my BB Cream Collection back in February!

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Etoinette All Over Powder! This super cute powder is very limited edition, but I thought I would talk about it today since you can still purchase this in some stores.

Fail or Holy Grail Review: Beauty Blender

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Original Beauty Blender! This is such a Holy Grail tool for so many Princesses, and it is for me too! I've been using a beauty blender since 2012 and still can't find a tool that beats it for a flawless foundation application.

First Impression: Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence, Mask and Steam Cream

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my first impressions on some of the Benton Snail Bee High Content Skincare! This skincare was really interesting for me to try since I was initially quite scared off by the mould scandal and lack of preservatives in the formula, but they are so widely loved that I thought I should put my big girl pants on and give them a go.
 

What Does It Do?
Snail Bee High Content Essence
"Flaunt a flawless complexion with Benton's Snail Bee High Content Essence. This highly concentrated essence provides abundant hydration and nourishment from its premium key components - snail slime filtrate and bee venom.

This healthy skin cells would result into softer, smoother skin texture and brighter complexion.

Review: LUSH Feeling Younger Skin Tint

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about LUSH's Feeling Younger Skin Tint! This tint is recommended for Princesses wanting that MAC Strobe Cream Glow, but don't want to support companies that test on animals or want a cheaper product.

Store Review: SheIn

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with SheIn (formerly known as Sheinside)! SheIn is quite a popular website, but I've never shopped with them because purchasing clothing online rarely goes well for me in terms of fit, colour and quality of garments and I have fairly high expectations.


Website Practicality
I find the SheIn site easy to navigate, though it won't work on Firefox for me, instead I have to open it through Chrome or it continually crashes the browser. I find it easy to search for clothing, create a log in, add items to my cart and check out. Though, SheIn is incredibly frustrating with their emails, they have emailed me once a day for the past week and soon I will block them because the odd email is great, but a daily one is just too much!

First Impression: Etude House Big Cover Concealer BB in Vanilla

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Big Cover Concealer BB Cream in the shade Vanilla! ^ ^

What Does It Do?
 "Concealer BB Cream covers flaws with its excellent coverage power and easy absorption; just a small amount delivers full coverage skin.

How to apply
1. The wide tip flexibly moves around in any angle, from side to side, to cover completely and lightly even with a small amount of concealer BB for a light, full coverage look.
2. An arrowhead-shaped tip creates dual coverage to hide delicate flaws and create a much more refined look.

Fail or Holy Grail Review: Acuvue 1 Day Define Natural Shine

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Acuvue 1 Day Define Natural Shine Lenses! I bought these to be a slightly enlarging every day lens, but they really are very uncomfortable for me to wear.

First Impression: LUSH Million Dollar Moisturiser

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the LUSH Million Dollar Moisturiser. As of right this minute I am preparing for Wisdom Tooth surgery! I'm having all four out under general anaesthetic, so if I seem a little loopy on social media, that will be why! ^ ^


What Does It Do?
"Lounging in the sun is a job for the super rich, like the thick and creamy almond, sesame seed and oatmeal decoction inside this luxurious facial suncare. Reflective pigments will highlight your face with a Hollywood glow, so make your next walk on the beach a walk of fame safe from the sun's rays (but maybe not the papparazzi you've attracted along). Beware: sweet tonka absolute and delicate lavender make you feel like a million dollars... so you might pick up some new, diva-ish habits on the way.


Ingredients
Almond, Sesame Seeds (Sesamum indicum), Glycerine (Glycerine), Honey (Honey), Octocrylene (Octocrylene), Octylmethoxycinnamate (Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate), Organic Sesame Oil, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane), Fair Trade Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Sodium Polyacrylate, Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Tincture of Benzoin (Styrax benzoin), Lavender Absolute (Lavandula angustifolia), Rosewood Oil (Aniba rosaeodora), Evening Primrose Oil (Oenothera biennis), *Benzyl Benzoate (*Benzyl Benzoate), *Citral (*Citral), Coumarin (Coumarin), Geraniol (Geraniol), *Linalool (*Linalool), *Limonene (*Limonene), Perfume (Perfume), Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Titanium Dioxide (Titanium Dioxide), Methylparaben, Propylparaben (Propylparaben)"(1)

Store Review: iBéau

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with iBéau! This seems to be a very new store since I can't really find any non sponsored reviews from them. I am a little cautious shopping with stores that don't already have a couple of non sponsored reviews, but someone's got to do it the first time anyway!

UPDATE: This gets quite ranty down the bottom, I wrote it when I was emailing the company and was really, really irritated by their response and attitude towards customer service. I won't remove what I wrote, because at the time of writing it that's honestly how I felt about the matter, and as an average consumer (I shop with my real name, not my blog name) I don't feel like I was treated as a valued customer. On with the review! ^ ^


Website Practicality
I found the iBéau site very easy to navigate, though you see that little "chat with us" bar? That pops up in EVERY NEW TAB I OPEN which is just incredibly annoying. It's quite big too which means that I actually need to minimise it every time since otherwise I can't see a line of products and I find it very frustrating. Otherwise, it was easy to create a log in, search for products, load my cart and check out.
