Estée Lauder Signature Satin Creme Blush - Review

 I got this one in the 'Coral' shade. I absolutely love cream blushers, the last one I got and have nearly used up was MAC's 'Lilicent' which sadly discontinued :(.

I'm really liking this one! I love peachy colours for my complexion and find it hard finding a nice peachy cream blush, I have both MAC - Peaches and NARS - Gina, both of which are beautiful beautiful colours, but I suck at putting them on!

So I came across this, it's about £23.50 (in either HoF or Debenhams) and it has a really silky feeling to it. It's not as thick as some cream blushers but it's not quite a powder one, it's in between! I was reading some reviews on this and saw a lot of mature ladies rave about this?... I'm putting that down to Estée Lauder being the kind of brand my mom uses! I think anyone can use it though :).

I looove the colour, it's gorgeous peachy tone, not too flat and not too bright. I actually wear this everyday to work! You can put it on very sheer and also build it up if you want something with more pop.

I used to apply this with just my fingers but I found because it's not as thick as my MAC one, that I disturb my makeup a little so I used my angled blush brush which works really well! It's quite pigmented so you only need a small amount.

Overall I give this 8/10, I wouldn't mind it being a little thicker like my MAC one as it'd be even easier to apply and also give a little glowy shine to cheek apples! Otherwise it is a really good peachy blusher!

Nars Sheer Glow - Review

So I'd been looking for a foundation for ages, I avoided foundation before because I found it SO hard finding the right one for my complexion (I'm a little yellow-y). I got this after I bought Dior Airflash which was too light for me (will review that one soon).

I went into John Lewis (£29.50) to check this out after reading some amazing reviews and the lady tried Barcelona and Syracuse on me.

 I like this, it has the yellow tones for my skin and it's a really light formula. You can put the sheerest amount just to even out your skin tone and it looks natural  but gives you a nice glow.

The only thing that I personally didn't like about this, is that it still isn't the right colour for me (on the right of the swatch it is rubbed in), I can get away with wearing a very sheer amount of it but anything more than that and it's hello The Mask! I think something in between Barcelona and Syracuse would have been perfect but alas :(.

Overall it's a really good sheer foundation for people like me who don't like that much coverage, I'm sure it's buildable but it's just as good sheer.

I give it an 8/10 - knocked off 2 because it wasn't my perfect match :(
