quick holiday reviews: makeup



MAC Face and Body in C3 (£27): Simple to apply, water based with really light coverage and a natural looking finish. I didn't really wear makeup during the day on holiday but I did use this occasionally in the evenings to make me feel a little more done! For £27 you get 100ml of foundation, which is about three times the average ml of a high end foundation. As my skin has cleared up alot recently so I've been trying to use lower coverage, dewy foundations. This is very light and feels incredible on the skin. Face and Body is also it's the only MAC foundation I've ever tried that I liked! I will review this in full soon!

Daniel Sandler Billion Dollar Body Shimmer (£20)*: Lovely shimmery highlighting product which looks absolutely stunning in the evenings patted onto the collarbones and chest area. Very glittery but looks incredible with tanned skin! Perfect for holidays or evenings out!

Pop Beauty Lid Bronzer (£15)*: Incredible little palette of 6 shades of warm bronzy eyeshadows. Very slim and small which makes the kit perfect for travelling. I wore this most evenings to add a little bit of definition to the eyes! Especially liked the copper bronze shade smudged under the eyes!

Makeup Forever Smokey Lash Waterproof Mascara (£17.95): Im so sad this mascara has finally dried up and gone off! Im a mascara tart and never repurchase ones, but this has to be one of my all time favourite mascara's. It is volumising, long lasting and super, super black. I wore it around the pool to give my tiny lashes a touch of definition and I had no smudging, melting or transferring! Hard to get hold of in the UK but a 100% repurchase from me if I can get my hands on it!

Bobbi Brown Bronzer is Aruba (£27): I'm not sure about this bronzer, while it looks nice in the pan and when the MUA applied it to me in the shop, I just don't think it really shows up that well on my tanned skin. Maybe I'm using the wrong brush as the shimmer doesn't seem to show up either! Quite disappointed with this bronzer actually but will update with a full review soon!

Bare Minerals SPF Natural Sunscreen (£23): I've used this before but always bought the fair one, but as it's always too pale for me I thought this time I'd buy the tan one. WRONG! Was too dark on my skin and sort of made me look a bit sunburnt! Although I did bring a mineral foundation to blend it with, I was just a bit silly getting one too dark for me! I do highly recommend the formula as mineral sunscreen's are great for a touch of coverage and also protecting your skin.The packaging is handy and great for on the go as the brush twists away! Mineral Sunscreens can look a touch cakey if you over apply but are good for oilier skin types! I will do a full review of this as I do really like it, I just picked the wrong shade!
