Designer Lift


If you have an oily t-zone but dry cheeks this foundation couldn't be better suited to you. It promises to adapt to your skin type and balance out oily and dry areas alike. Since the weather has been getting increasingly colder by the day it has affected my skin making it extremely dry. Since using this product I found it was very moisturizing and made my skin feel comfortable and soft.

Used on my friend before a night out

Giorgio Armani say that is a high coverage foundation, I would argue that if you were to apply two coats you would achieve a high coverage finish but applying one coat is defiantly a medium coverage. I prefer medium coverage so this wasn't a problem for me but don't go expecting a full coverage foundation. It's designed to give the skin a luminous lift hence the name designer lift, it did feel like it smoothed out any lines in my skin which is great.
When we are younger our skin has a higher blue light retrodiffusion and as we age our skin loses this colour which is what gives the skin a natural radiance. Designer lift works by using a blue pigment to help give back lost radiance. Always love to try out pioneering beauty breakthroughs so tried it out on my mum's face (older skin, sorry mum) and it seemed to do the trick. Even if you are young this works in the same way but adding more radiance and leaving a dewy glow on the skin.

Compared with Luminous Silk it did seem to have a thicker consistency and felt creamy upon application yet still manages to feel light on the skin. What I would say is that a little goes a long way you only need one pump and even that's leaves excess. A great purchase !!

Brow Stencils


The shape of your eyebrows can ultimately define the entire structure of your face. This is why a good brow is so important, prices of eyebrow waxing and threading are on the rise, so i want to show you a product which can give your eyebrow shape. Without the pain of going to the beauty salon.

K Co brow powder an stencils cost £22.99 and comes in a great set with 4 different colours (bare in mind this set is for blondes) which you can mix to create the colour best suited to your natural eyebrow. The clever stencil can be simply placed over the eyebrow and filled in using the powders to create a flawless arched eyebrow.

The problem i have with this product is that I already have an eyebrow pencil/powder that I like and forking out £22.99 seemed like a lot of money for one stencil. So I went digging and found a set by W7 called brow bar which only cost me £2.99 !!

 For £2.99 this set contains 4 colours, 3 stencils which allow you to mix and match the shape and thickness, a eyebrow brush and a eyebrow comb and these simple instructions

1.Comb/brush eyebrow hair upwards
2.Place eyebrow stencil over the eyebrow in desired position
3. Brush the eyebrow with a colour shade that matches your hair
4. Carefully remove the eyebrow stencil from the eyebrow.

K Co is ten times more expensive than the W7 brow bar and only contains one stencil compared to W7 which has 3.

W7 brow also allows for the desired shape of the brow to be customized which K Co doesn't. K Co's powder formula may of better quality than the W7 powder however if you already have a preferred eyebrow filler then it is a no-brainer as to which set to choose.
