Holy Grail Make Up Removal Duo

28 March
After years of breakouts, stubborn makeup and trying all kinds of products I can finally say I have found my holy grail makeup removal duo! My face is extremely hard to please when it comes to products - it's not necessarily sensitive but one wrong ingredient and my skin will tell me through an unwanted breakout. However this hasn't happened at all since using these two Garnier products, my skin absolutely adores it and it's extremely affordable!

You've probably heard so many people going on and on about how amazing the micellar water is and how quickly yet gently it removes all traces of make up. Since starting my new job with 10 hour days the first thing I want to do is remove my make up that has been topped up throughout the day to control the shine. I used to really enjoy a really detailed skin routine on a daily basis but now it's all about getting it off as quickly and as simply as I can, so that is why this little combo is an absolute dream.

I started off just using the Micellar Water to remove everything however I found myself struggling to remove heavy eye make up which is when I branched out and tried the 2 in 1 make up remover which of course impressed me in the same way the Micellar water did. Both products are extremely gentle on the skin and cause no irritation to my skin at all as there is no added perfume. All it involves is a small amount of the product, a cotton pad and a few strokes around your face and it just lifts the make up instantly.

As I have such sensitive and dry eyes I am always extremely cautious with what I use around my eye area and the Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make Up Remover even removes waterproof makeup without me rubbing my eyes. It is made up of a two part formula so you do have to shake it a little before you use it just so you get the best results and I also find although there is an oilier part to the formula it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy and gross!

Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour

05 March
When I hear the words 'Christian Louboutin' I think luxury, beautiful and outstanding quality. Along with those 3 things, expensive also comes to mind and at £70 a lipstick I can't imagine many people rushing to the counter to purchase one. I think the majority of this price probably goes into the packaging because let's face it, it's incredible and theres nothing else like it! However a lot of time and money has also gone into the formula as it is spot on - it's absolutely gorgeous.

I have been after one of these lip colours since they were originally released but I just couldn't justify £70 on a lipstick no matter how pretty it was so when I opened this up christmas morning it's safe to say I nearly died. My mum of course went with a nude matte as who doesn't love a nude matte lipstick? and it is in the shade Just Nothing.

I don't think I need to say much about the packaging of this lip colour as you can see just how unique and stunning it is so let's get straight onto the formula... Heaven, it is heaven. It is so creamy with such rich pigment and is the longest lasting lipstick I own. I wore this out for dinner and it was actually still fully there after I'd eaten which really impressed me as it's just a matte lip colour not a liquid lip! It is really comfortable and easy to wear as it contains a complex of natural oils and seed butters and leaves my lips silky smooth without drying them at all.

I am so impressed with the quality of this lipstick so if you're willing to spend £70 it's a must have but if not 100% add it to your christmas / birthday list and you will not regret it!
