Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara

 This is a pretty pricey mascara but thats what you expect from the fabulous Giorgio Armani.  It say - Coats lashes with maxi volume & darkest black colour. Instantly thickens & separates lashes. Creates full, luscious lashes that stay defined all day. Dresses the eye to new depth & intensity. Long wearing without flaking or smudging. I would agree :-)
It is a luscious mascara indeed. The tube is like metal and has a heavy weight to it. Makes my lashes silky black, super long and separated with a fair bit of volume. I got this for a Birthday present don't think I would purchase it myself.

Bare Minerals Matte Mineral Foundation

Hello all hope the month of February is treating you well. So I have decided to give my Bare Minerals Matte another go. When you go onto their website it kind of reels you into their mineral glory and I get obsessed all over again! I have the shade Light which I think is a tad too dark for me at the moment. I apply with the kabuki brush which gives the fullest coverage of all the brushes.  This takes getting used to and patience. You have to make sure you have moisturised well. Then starting on the outside of your face near you cheekbones gently buff working your way into the centre of you face. You don't get immediate coverage with this straight away, you really have to buff and buff which can be annoying but the pay off is rather spectacular and the more I use it the better my skin seems to look. I have an oily T-zone so this is perfect for keeping the oil at bay. I still use the mineral veil over top to give a real soft focus glow. I have been using this for a few days now and I think its working for me. It definitely lasts all day and I only blot twice if that.

I just love the whole concept of  BareMinerals and its philosophy. The CEO Leslie Blodgett is such a lovely, down to earth person I just adore her personality and how she takes the time to interact and inspire people all over the world.
I also love the packaging oh its so beautiful and the layout of boutiques are stunning! I even love the type font!!

Now too see what I shall purchase next... I have my eye on the new Active Cell Renewal Night Serum and the new eyeshadow quads! oooh how exciting! Oh and I just ordered the Brightening Prime Time Primer! YAY!
