Product of the month-August 2017!

Hello My Lovelies

Welcome back to another product of the month-this time it's all about a lipstick I purchased with the last of my Icelandic currency when coming through duty free back in February!

When popping through the shops at the airport I knew I wanted to use up all my currency as it was pointless trying to change it back to English pounds as the exchange rate is always so shocking. I decided to have a look at some of the different brands and decided that I didn't have a lipstick in my collection from Lancôme so that would be make a great choice. Little did I know that after spending all of my money that we would be stranded in Iceland for an extra day due to the weather and that the cash would of come in handy!

Never less it is now part of my ever growing collection and one that has become a firm favourite. When I first applied L'absolu rouge (cream formulation) in the shade Rose Nu I was a bit disappointed it was more like a lip balm with a slight colour and had a horrid after taste. I kept applying it over the coming days building up the colour, it now doesn't need much to create a lovely berry colour.

The packaging is pretty neat-clicking the bottom and the lid coming off to reveal the lipstick. priced at £25.50 they aren't cheap but make a great treat come pay day or maybe dare I say it a fab gift for a loved one this Christmas!

Have you tried any of the Lancôme lipsticks? Let me know in the comments or on my twitter @steaders83

Curvy Girl OOTD 25-Wedding Guest Edition!

Hello My Lovelies

A couple of weekends ago I was invited along to a wedding reception and my dress was just two awesome not to share with you.

I bought this navy dress from Peacocks a couple of years ago for my trip to Las Vegas but never actually got to wear- I think I was a little nervous I was too big for it so it's sat waiting to be worn since then. I'm a bit of a fan of the colour navy which I also think is perfect for a summer wedding.

I paired my Peacocks dress with a pair of Marks and Spencer heels which are also navy and super comfy- I wore them all night even having a bit of a dance without having to take them off.

To finish off my look I added my YSL Dylan bag and a denim jacket as it was a bit windy and also rained in the evening.

Have you got any OOTD blog posts- I would love to see your most recent favourite outfit so please do share them with me.

Till next time,

The Ordinary Serum Foundation!

Hello My Lovelies

The Ordinary seems to have appeared from no where and taken over every beauty lover's skin care routine and now they have foundations!

I was originally after the coverage foundation but it was out of stock and I was determined to try something from the range so I decided to order the serum foundation.

It was really simple and quick to order directly from the website and I was really pleased with the colour selection to choose from as there appeared to be a decent range for all skin types. I did have to guess for my skin as I'm quite pale but once it arrived I realised it was a perfect match.

The packaging is unique in that it comes in a small black plastic bottle and is extremely light weight- there isn't a lid though so not particularly easy to travel with. For a serum foundation it was actually pretty darn high coverage and blended well with my usual makeup brush! I would say The Ordinary foundation looked super natural and lasted the whole day with only a slight touch up of powder as I have oily skin.
At £5.70 for 30ml it's an absolute bargain buy and it even has SPF15!

Have you tried any of the skin care or foundations from The Ordinary? What did you think?

Till next time,
