L'Oreal Eau De Tient Foundation

I am honestly not a massive fan of foundation and it is not something I generally spend a lot of time looking at or thinking about. This is mainly because I always find them heavy and caky on my skin and also trying to find the correct shade for my skin is a pretty much impossible task!

However, after seeing this foundation in drug stores and also in many adverts in magazines I decided to give it a go and I'm so happy I did! (Yes my skin really is that pale to need porcelain!) The L'Oreal Eau De Tient Foundation is so light on my skin, honestly feels like I'm not wearing any foundation at all. This is perfect for me! It makes my skin feel so smooth and silky, but gives great coverage and makes pores appear tiny or just vanish completely. It also makes skin have a matte appearance, meaning no powder is needed afterwards or to 'set' the foundation, as it moulds to your skin perfectly. It is perfect for the 'no make-up' look as you can barely see it when applied.
It is also so easy to apply with easy to follow instructions. All you simply to is shake the bottle, then place a finger over the top and gently tip. The amount of product you get from each shake is amazing - only a few times is needed! I placed dots of the product under my eyes, chin and forehead and used a brush to blend into skin. Below are the before and after images.

The bottle is also so cute and looks very modern as it is made from a frosted glass. The purple detailing really stands out but not too OTT.
I would defiantly recommend this to anyone who wants a foundation but not the heavy, caky feel. Also, with the huge range of different tones, there is a shade for every skin tone. Many drug stores also have testers for each shade, so you can try before you buy.

Have you ever used this foundation? What do you think of it?

F.B.L Quick Tip #20


Want lighter hair without the trip to the salon?
Either wash you hair with chamomile & lemon juice on your entire head or use a toothbrush to apply lemon juice to strands of hair.
Then, simply let you hair dry naturally in the sun!

Liquor N Poker Wish List

I haven't done a wish list post since I first started my blog at the start of the year and I thought it was about time I did another, especially since it is in collaboration with Liquor N Poker. This a high quality, authentic street denim company that have products that can be worn all day everyday and fit in with whatever trend is around at the time.

As soon as I saw these jeans I feel in love! The lilac wash is amazing and quite unusual as I have never seen jeans this colour before. The colour also gives them a distressed feel to them and combined with the ripped knees, these are bang on trend right now! I feel they lend themselves to a rock chick/with-the-band look - which is the kind of look I tend to wear - and with them being skinny jeans, it makes them so easy to style up and down depending on the occasion.
 I would wear the Skinny Rib Crop Tee from Topshop with these jeans. Mainly because it is black, going in with the with-the-band look, and also it means that is not distracting from the colour of the jeans. Also as it is a crop, you can show a little bit of skin without it being too much.

This Warehouse Rib Sleeve Biker Jacket is the perfect cover up for this look! It has the rock chick feel to it, as most leather jackets do, and everyone knows that denim and a black leather jackets is the perfect, easy outfit to wear and style. I love the rib detail on the sleeves and with it being a cropped jacket, it will defiantly show of the jeans.
I would team this outfit with my trusty white Converse. These just go with any outfit and seeing as a lot of this outfit is black, they will add a bit of colour without it being too much. Converse also still fit with the theme of this, so they are perfect!

For accessories, I would choose this Silver tone twisted chain body harness from River Island. I would wear this under the T-Shirt, so only the bottom half would be shown, as it is a crop top. It is such a cheeky way to show off a piece of jewellery!

What do you think of the outfit? Something you would wear and do you think it fits in with the rock chick/with-the-band look I was after?

Boux Avenue Continued

As I am sure you know from my previous post - I love Boux Avenue! So when I received an email from them saying about the VIP pre-sale, I just knew I had to buy something, much to the disappointment of my bank balance! For those of you who don't know, the VIP pre-sale is for those who have signed up to a VIP card either in-store or online. This works like a loyalty card with you getting points from every purchase, which go towards money off.

I love my PJ bottoms which I had previously bought from Boux Avenue, so I got another pair in a different colour. These ones are blue check and are made from such a soft material making them so comfy. They also have front pockets and while I probably wont ever use them its good that they are there just in case.

I also got a pair of the Chloe shorts in violet. This colour is so nice and although it looks quite bright on the website, they are a dark-ish purple which I love. The lace is so pretty without it being too girly and they are also made from a really nice, soft material.

Of course I asked for my order to be gift wrapped and so it appeared in one of Boux Avenue's gorgeous boxes complete with pink tissue paper and scented rose petals. The box has such a nice smell when I opened it! To show how nice Boux Avenue is, my sister also ordered the same as me, just in different colours.

What makes my order even better was that I got all this, plus delivery for just under £22 as I had the VIP sale code! How good is that?!
