Monthly Favourites: July 2019

I cannot believe we are onto another monthly favourites, this year is just flying by! I never like to wish my time away but I go to Orlando in December and I just cannot wait, so part of me hates how quick time goes, but another part of me is always so excited to go to Orlando, my happy place. Anywho, here are some products I have been loving this month.
Whilst browsing Superdrug, the MUA makeup brand, which is already super cheap, had a third off, and so I picked up the MUA Blushed Matte Blush in the shade Atomic Tangerine (£1.65). It has a pretty rose design embossed into it and the colour is stunning, and works really well with a tan for a pop of coral on the cheeks. They also have other shades available, but this one really caught my eye. You can find it online at Superdrug here.
Last year in a gift with purchase goody bag, I received the NudeStix Eyebrow Stylus, and it has been such a favourite of mine, that I recently re-purchased it, and whilst I was doing so I picked up the NudeStix Magnetic Eye Colour Pencil (£20.00) in the shade Twilight. Their products all come amazingly presented, in a keepsake tin, complete with a hints and tips sheet and a pencil sharpener. The shade is a really pretty light brown shimmer, and you only need a hint of a swipe to get a full coverage look and they are totally budge-proof too. So pretty! You can find NudeStix online at Cult Beauty here.
 
 
A product I received in my latest The Vegan Kind Beauty Box was the Ben & Anna Natural Soda Deodorant (£7.00) in the fragrance Persian Lime. Ben & Anna is a vegan and cruelty free brand and their deodorants are 100% natural and contain 0% aluminium. I have been trying other natural deodorants and I must admit they work just as well as other deodorants out there, plus the Persion Lime fragrance smells incredible and is such a fresh scent for first thing in the morning. You can find Ben & Anna online here.
I really loved my LASplash Golden Gatsby Eyeshadow Palette and so I wanted to try something else from the brand. I chose the LASplash Hydro Liquid Highlight (£10.00) in the shade Radiate. The Hydro Liquid Highlights come in cute little glass bottles with a glass dropper applicator so that you can control the amount of product you are using. Radiate is a golden pink shade with silver glitter running throughout it and as the glitter is quite chunky, I have actually been using this as a liquid eyeshadow as it is so pretty on the eyes. You can find them online at Beauty Bay here.
I have wanted to try the Isle Of Paradise tanning brand for ages, and received this in another gift with purchase goody bag - what can I say? I love a bargain! This is the Isle Of Paradise Medium Self-Tanning Water (£18.95) and I must admit I was a bit sceptical when I read that it was a tanning water. However, I was pleasantly surprised! Even though the Tanning Water is green, it contains colour correcting actives which also even out the skin tone, so not only do you get a stunning golden tan, but it also evens out your skin tone so that there are no streaks. You simply spritz it all over the skin, and leave for 4-6 hours whilst your tan develops! Easy. You can find Isle Of Paradise online here.
I tend to put off buying a new Beauty Blender as long as possible, as I have gone through at least 15 easily since they were first released back in the day. However, I always think £17.00 is pretty pricey for a beauty sponge, but I know that it is reliable, and does the job on my skin better than any other beauty sponge. I do own and use other beauty sponges, but nothing quite compares to the original. This time I picked it up in the Tropical Bubblegum colour, a pretty bright pink complete with tropical fruit decorating the outer packaging. You can find it online at Cult Beauty here.
I don't always tend to wear makeup for work, mainly because I work for myself so when I come to my office, I don't usually see many people and so I like to give my skin a break. Therefore, I wanted to keep a moisturiser at work so that if my skin felt a little dry, I could top it up during the day. I chose the Garnier Organic Fresh Lemongrass Daily Moisturiser (£7.99) as it was on offer at Boots at the time. It comes in a handy 50ml tube and has a lightweight gel texture which is really refreshing during the warmer months. It also smells incredible and the lemongrass reminds me of being in a spa, and not in my office so that's always nice. You can find it at Boots here.
I don't know about you, but I struggle to sleep during Summer, it is either too hot, or the birds outside my window are going full pelt like they're at an all-night karaoke bar. So, my under eyes need plenty of concealing. I picked up the NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer (£6.00) in the shade CW02 Fair, which works well on my light to skin, however I would say if you have fair skin, to go lighter. This concealer feels nice and light on my skin and doesn't cake up throughout the day, and at £6.00 you really can't go wrong for such a great cover-up as it blends beautifully. You can find it online at NYX here.
I have been using Tangle Teezer hair brushes since they first came out, but I fancied a change as they don't seem to last me that long. So whilst recently placing an order from America, I added the Kristin Ess Medium Detangling Brush ($14.00/£11.00) to my basket. Kristin Ess haircare is readily available in the UK, but not all products are, and so I ordered this one from Target. It is rose gold and the bristles are lightweight and so they don't tug or pull on my hair, and neither does the brush cause any damage to my hair, which some hair brushes can do. You can find Kristin Ess in the UK here or in the US at Target here.
Primark Beauty recently revealed a Grapefruit skincare range, and so I picked up the PS... Grapefruit Jelly Face Mask (£1.00). I adore their face masks because they are so affordable and this grapefruit one smells so refreshing. I even put this one in the fridge when I knew the weather was going to be hot, and so when I came to use it, it was so cold and hydrating on the skin. This is perfect for hydrating and revitalising the skin. You can find Primark online here, where they often show you what is new in store.
A body lotion I have really enjoyed this month is the Lavido Aromatic Mandarin, Orange & Bergamot Body Lotion ($19.00/£15.00) which I received in a previous FabFitFun box. As with the Garnier Lemongrass Moisturiser, I love anything that reminds me of being in a spa, and this Body Lotion does just that. Texture-wise, this is slightly balmy, and it sinks into the skin instantaneously, which I love as I have no patience for standing around waiting for body lotions to dry. It feels silky soft as I apply it to my skin and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and smelling incredible. You can find it online here. You can get $15.00 off your first FabFitFun box by using my link here, which will also give me $15.00 credit.
Whilst on the subject of FabFitFun, another product I received in my box is the Ouai Leave In Conditioner (£22.00). They honestly have some of the best products and I have been wanting to try the brand for ages now, and they send full sizes, which we all know doesn't happy very often in beauty boxes. I think leave-in conditioners are so great because they are very low maintenance, you literally spritz into damp hair, and either blow dry or leave to dry naturally and off you go, letting the product do its job. This smells divine and is great for detangling, moisturising and fighting frizz. You can find it online in the UK here.
I have been a highlighter magpie for a good few years now, but during the Summer months, I like something a little lighter than a full-on disco glow and so I picked up the C.Y.O. Bronzing & Highlighting Palette in the shade In The Clouds as it was reduced from £5.00 to £1.50 at Boots. As much as I love my bougie products, I do love a bargain too. I definitely wouldn't be able to bronze with this, but the five pretty pearlescent shades make for a really gorgeous highlight on the cheeks without being over the top. You can find it online here.
 
The Love Beauty And Planet skincare and body care products are so beautiful, and I received the Love Beauty And Planet Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Hand Cream in a recent Target Beauty Box that I get sent from America. I can't seem to find the hand creams over here yet, but I am sure they will make their way over. I adore anything coconut scented, and this hand cream is really hydrating without taking ages to dry or leaving a greasy residue after application. You can find Love Beauty And Planet online in the UK here.
I am 90% sure I have included this in a previous favourites, but I am onto another pot I love it that much, and so here is the Vaseline Creme Brulee Lip Therapy. Do I love it the most because it is in the cutest little pot ever? Yes, yes I probably do, but I love creme brulee and this is so good for the lips, as it really helps to keep my lips smooth and hydrated as well as being super cheap! I tend to get mine from Amazon.com here, but I am pretty sure you can find them on eBay too.

Pixi Jasmine Oil Blend Review

I use Pixi Skincare products pretty much every day in some shape or form, and so when I received the Pixi Jasmine Oil Blend in my Cult Beauty goody bag which was free with purchase, I was excited to try it out as it isn't something I have tried previously.
Pixi already have the Pixi Rose Oil Blend, which I have previously tried and so I thought I would compare it to the Pixi Jasmine Oil Blend. The Pixi Jasmine Oil Blend is a revitalising oil which is completely weightless and is soothing and ultra nourishing on the skin, which is an easy addition to your skincare routine. It has quite a medium-floral scent to it, which I didn't find overpowering or offensive.

The main difference between the two Oil Blends, is that Rose Oil Blend is great for drier skin, to offer super rich nourishment as the Sweet Almond, Jojoba and Rosehip Oil mix helps to create a cocoon of silky moisture on the skin. Whereas the Jasmine Oil Blend is beneficial to those with sensitive skin, to soothe and balance it out. The Pure Jasmine Oil, Lavender and Chamomile help to relax and restore the skin, whilst also providing the skin with hydration and nutrients. I find the Jasmine Oil Blend slightly more lightweight than the Rose and they both absorb really quickly into the skin, without leaving behind a greasy residue.
Jasmine Oil Blend is to be used in the morning to re-balance the complexion before starting the day, either on its own or mixed into your daily moisturiser or primer before applying makeup. Whereas Rose Oil Blend is slightly richer, and so is best used overnight to seal in moisture. Due to this, they can either be used on their own, or you can use them both together, Jasmine in the morning and Rose on an evening.

The Pixi Jasmine Oil Blend is a multi-use product, which are my favourite kinds of products, and as well as on the face, it can also be used on the ends of your hair, on your lips, elbows, cuticles, heels and wherever else needs a little more attention!

The Pixi Jasmine Oil Blend costs £26.00 for 30ml, which is the standard size for oils and serums. The Oil Blend comes in a gorgeous light pink and mint green glass bottle, complete with glass dropper which allows you to use as much or as little product as you need. You can find it online at Pixi here.

MAC Electric Wonder Collection Review

When I first saw the MAC Electric Wonder collection, I wanted it all, but unfortunately my budget doesn't stretch that far. As I was wanting a new bronzer, I opted for the Next To Nothing Bronzing Powder and then as I couldn't resist the Electric Wonder Iridescent Powder, that also found its way into my online basket.
The MAC Electric Wonder collection features five lipglosses, two eyeshadow palettes, a face palette, two bronzers, two iridescent powders, two brushes and five lipsticks, so it is a pretty heavy collection. The packaging is absolutely stunning, and one of my favourite that MAC have ever done, with its pink, gold and white grey marble effect and sleek matte and gold packaging, it looks stunning.
The MAC Next To Nothing Bronzing Powder (£23.50) is available in two shades, the one I have here, Canyon Dreamin', which is the lightest of the two, and Sun-Soaked Strip. The compacts of course have that gorgeous marble effect and feel satisfying to hold. They have a mirror on the inside of the lid and 10g of bronzing powder. Even though it is advertised as a next to nothing bronzer, I personally think this still gives a regular coverage like any other bronzer, which I was a little disappointed with as I wanted something quite sheer. However, you can of course build it up, or go in as gentle as you can with it, so all is not lost. The Bronzer is very finely milled and you can really tell when you apply it as it is silky soft and there is no caking or bunching up, even towards the end of the day. I am fair to light skinned, and during winter this would probably be slightly too dark for me, but at the moment it works really well on my skin tone.
Moving on to the MAC Electric Wonder Iridescent Powder (£25.50), this is also available in two shades, the one I have here, Serenity Seeker, and a darker variety, Into Eternity. It is always so hard to pick up shimmer, glitter and iridescence on a photograph, but in person this is truly stunning, and looks like a work of art! The main part of the powder is a soft blush pink, and there are warm-toned swirls in there, lighter gold ones and lots of pretty gold glitter. Just like with the Bronzer, you do get a mirror on the inside of the lid too. This can be used as a highlighter, a blush, or lightly swirled all over the face, although I would probably also use this on my arms and decolletage area during the Summer months to add some shimmer and glow to my skin. If you prefer a go-all-out highlight, then this possibly wouldn't be for you, as it is a more natural finish, but oh so beautiful!
You can find the MAC Electric Wonder Collection online here.

Revolution Nudes Collection Metallic Lip Gloss Review + Swatches

I was sorting out my Blogger Box recently, the place where I keep all my PR samples and items which I have bought to try out for my blog, and I happened upon the Revolution Nudes Collection Metallic Lip Glosses, which I had totally forgotten about! They come in a range of eleven different shades, which are all soft and very pretty, in three different finishes, matte, metallic and gloss.
The shades and finishes available are;
Bare All - Soft brown gloss
Boudoir - Subtle pink nude gloss
Exposed - Deep brown gloss
Skinny Dip - Mauve nude gloss
On Display - Chocolate nude matte
Stripped - Soft brown matte
Undressed - Peachy nude matte
Bustier - Soft rosy nude metallic
Corset - Golden bronze metallic
Lingerie - Light golden metallic
Pixelated - Chestnut metallic
The three I have here are Bustier, Corset and Lingerie as I really loved the metallic finish they have. The packaging is quite plain and simple, with a matte nude lid and a clear plastic tube. The applicator has a slanted sponge tip, which is quite thin so I find them really easy to apply. The formula is buttery soft and they glide on to the lips easily, with excellent pigment that gives a full coverage with just one swipe, which is great for a metallic lip product as sometimes they can be quite sheer.
The shades I picked are really pretty, and I think Bustier and Lingerie in particular would make for a beautiful lip product for brides and bridesmaids as the formula isn't sticky or gloopy and they have really good staying power. The Revolution Nudes Collection Metallic Lip Glosses cost £3.00 each which is excellent value, but they are often on a 3 for 2 offer so you can get three for just £2.00 each!

You can find them online at Revolution here.

Transformulas Flawless PhotoGlow Daily Skin Radiance SPF30 Review

Ooh I love a good glowy moment and the Transformulas Flawless PhotoGlow Daily Skin Radiance SPF30 is right up my street. However, like most glowy skin products, this isn't an instant glow, this works daily to give you a glow increase that lasts rather than washes off. 
The Transformulas Flawless PhotoGlow Daily Skin Radiance SPF30 is an innovative multi-tasking treatment cream that is the ultimate complexion transformer, which instantly nourishes and restores radiance, whilst correcting imperfections for a flawless finish. Formulated with the latest cosmetic drone technology (yes, you read that correctly), this treatment cream has been medically developed with targeted technology to deliver active ingredients deep into specific areas that need treating, without overloading the skin.

To ensure against environmental damage, PhotoGlow has a powerful SPF30+ and is full of anti-oxidants to protect against any environmental damage to the skin. The Transformulas Flawless PhotoGlow Daily Skin Radiance SPF30 comes packaged like a fragrance, in a beautiful peach and gold bottle that has a push-down applicator which makes it easy and clean to release the product. 
So, what exactly is a cosmetic drone? This is targeted technology, much like a drone would be able to be targeted, and has been developed by scientists to deliver the active ingredients exactly where your skin needs them the most. After just two weeks, the PhotoGlow will give your skin a glow increase of 100%, with an 80% luminosity increase. I also noticed that my skin tone was improved and my skin looked and felt naturally radiant and nourished.

This year more than ever I have been looking for more products that contain an SPF, and so with the PhotoGlow containing SPF30+, I am over the moon with this. We don't live in the hottest, sunniest country around, but even on cloudy days, you should use an SPF or certainly a skincare or makeup product that already contains it.
The Transformulas Flawless PhotoGlow Daily Skin Radiance SPF30 can be applied in the morning onto clean, dry skin, and you just need a small amount to smooth over the face, neck and decollete to build up that daily natural radiance and protection. It can be used alongside a serum, whether that be from the Transformulas range or another brand.

The Transformulas Flawless PhotoGlow Daily Skin Radiance SPF30 costs £55.00 for 50ml, and so you are getting plenty of product for your money and you can find it online at Transformulas here.

Collosol Eau De Lait Water Milk Cleanser Review

Apparently Karl Lagerfeld bathes in Collosol Eau De Lait Water Milk Cleanser. Do with that information what you will. But when someone with his bank balance chooses a cleanser that costs around £10.00, you know it has to be good right? 
The Collosol Eau De Lait Water Milk Cleanser has been loved by French women for years and it has finally been released on the UK market. It is a water milk face and body cleanser that can be used in a couple of ways. You can dilute a few cap-fuls in the bath to soften the skin, or apply onto a cotton pad and smooth over the face, neck and decolletage area without rinsing for super soft and clean skin. 
The key ingredients in Collosol Eau De Lait Water Milk Cleanser are glycerin and castor oil to hydrate the skin. It has a paraben-free formula which is suitable for all skin types and was actually originally created to be used on babies, and so you know that it is perfect for even sensitive skin. You can also use the Milk Cleanser as a makeup remover, however it does have quite a bold fragrance to it, so I would personally be careful around the eyes.

The packaging is very plain and simple, with a pink theme to it, and once you remove the lid it has a small applicator through which the cleanser comes out of. I like this because you can control the amount of product you are releasing. The cleanser itself is a milky white and when applied to the skin, it soaks in instantly giving comfort, softness and hydration. I was definitely very impressed with this product.
The Collosol Eau De Lait Water Milk Cleanser is available in three sizes, 100ml for £9.50, 250ml for £14.50, and 400ml for £20.00, so it isn't the most expensive product by far when it comes to skincare and a little goes a long way. I do find it interesting that it is the only product that Collosol have, but who knows what the future holds. You can find Collosol Eau De Lait Water Milk Cleanser online at Feel Unique here.

Revlon Photoready Candid Foundation, Concealer & Powder Review

I honestly don't remember the last time I tried a Revlon foundation, and so with their latest offering, the Revlon Photoready Candid collection, I was looking forward to trying it out. The collection comprises of a foundation, concealer and setting powder.
The Candid collection is Revlon's first anti-pollution range and is formulated with Vitamin E to protect the skin against environmental factors, including blue light. The Revlon Photoready Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation (£9.99) is available in 26 shades, which I personally think is great for a drugstore brand and contains 22ml of foundation, which is a little below the 30ml average. The packaging comprises of a tube with a push-down applicator, which is great for using up all the product and controlling the amount you are using. The Photoready Candid Foundation does have quite a thick texture to it, and I would say it gives a medium to full coverage if you are layering it. Rather than a glowy or a matte finish, I found this to give a more natural look which I really liked for a change as so many foundations at the moment have a matte or glowy finish, and this natural finish is perfect for Summer skin.
Moving on to the Revlon Photoready Candid Antioxidant Concealer (£6.99), you receive 10ml of product which looks very similar in packaging style to the Foundation, but this time you get a screw-lid and a doe-foot sponge applicator. The applicator has a bit of a bulbous end to it, which I don't think is the best for carving out brows or applying close to the eye line. Much like the Foundation, the Concealer has quite a thick texture, but it feels quite lightweight and creamy on the skin and blends out beautifully. Coverage-wise, again I would say medium with that lovely, natural finish. I was a little surprised by the shade range as I could only locate four, which compared to the 26 shades of foundation, it seemed a little poor. I opted for shade 010 and I would say this is great for light skin tones.
Last but not least, is the Revlon Photoready Candid Anti-Pollution Setting Powder (£9.99), which is available in just the one shade, 001. You get 15g of the Setting Powder, which comes in a pot very similar to most other setting powders, however this one has an internal lid, which I find very useful as often powders can get everywhere. The Powder does have a slight pink tint to it in the pot, but as soon as you apply it to the face, it doesn't add any discolouration. When applied to the skin, it feels very finely milled and so super soft and very lightweight, so there is no bunching up of the powder later on the in the day and it kept my makeup in place.
You can find the Revlon Photoready Candid collection at Boots here.

Trying Out... HealGel Skincare Review

I love trying out new brands to the market as well as new brands to myself and Kathryn's Loves. One brand which isn't new to the market but is new to myself is HealGel. The company produces scientifically developed, effective skincare for all skin types. HealGel was created by a team of leading British plastic and cosmetic surgeons with the help of a renowned award-winning dermatological biochemist. They wanted to create an effective skincare range that was results driven and helped target everyday skin problems. They don't have a huge collection of products, instead focusing on four key products, HealGel Intensive, HealGel Face, HealGel Eye and HealGel Body.
HealGel Face (£48.00 for 50ml) is a step-changing rescue formula to counter the visible signs of ageing, harnessing the power of multi-active ingredients to take transformative skin therapy to the next level. It contains a triple phase hyaluronic acid complex to delivery an instant firming and plumping effect. This daily anti-ageing rescue formula also contains arnica and madecassoside suspended in liposomes with powerful peptides to give a soothing and collagen boosting process. Ingredients also include omega and seed oils which are great for replenishing dehydrated skin and restoring elasticity. HealGel Face comes in quite a scientific looking box and tube, with everything you need to know without the bumpf. Clean, simple, straightforward packaging. The cream comes in a 50ml bottle which has a pump applicator so you don't need to stick your fingers in a jar, and has a creamy, gel-like texture to it. It is slightly fragranced, and smells quite therapeutic, like something you would find in a spa. Even though there is a fragrance there, it is suitable for all skin tones. As soon as you apply it onto the skin it gives a slight cooling sensation, which is especially great at this time of year. I found that the formula melted into my skin almost instantaneously and it did feel a little plumper in comparison to using my regular moisturiser, along with feeling super hydrated and replenished. You only need a small amount per application and it can be used both in the morning and on an evening.
Moving on to the eyes, we have the HealGel Eye (£35.00 for 15ml). This is an advanced corrective eye formula to help diminish the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines associated with ageing, so basically an all-in-one treatment. It is a lightweight gel formula which cools the skin as soon as you apply it to even out skin tone and improve elasticity through intense hydration. This comes in very similar packaging to HealGel Face, this time in a smaller bottle, however my only negative was that because it is a pump applicator again, it did release far too much product for the eye area at once, so I did have to go really slowly with pressing down on it so that I didn't waste any product. HealGel Eye has been formulated to blur the fine lines around the eye area and give an immediate lift, containing calming arnica to reduce puffiness, and collagen boosting actives to firm the skin. The dual-action hyaluronic complex acts instantly to lock in moisture and firm eye contours. HealGel Eye also contains light diffusers which are in quite a lot of makeup products, which brighten the eye area to give a more refreshed, ready-for-the-day appearance. Just like HealGel Face, this product is suitable for all skin types and can be used on a morning and an evening. To apply, I take a tiny amount on my ring finger, as this is the finger that gives the least pressure on the delicate eye area and then gently massage around the eye.
You can find HealGel online here.

Glamglow GentleBubble Daily Conditioning Cleanser Review

Since taking extra care with my skincare routine lately, I have been going through cleansers like nobody's business. One of my most recent additions has been the Glamglow GentleBubble Daily Conditioning Cleanser, and so I thought I would share with you my thoughts.
The Glamglow GentleBubble Daily Conditioning Cleanser is a daily conditioning cleanser which gently but effectively cleanses the skin and removes face makeup and any daily impurities. It contains Oat Amino Acids to condition the skin while little gentle bubbles deeply cleanse and dissolve makeup. The Cleanser is blended with Apple Extract, Vitamin E and TEAOXI Green Tea Leaf and is inspired by the rainbow aura of bubbles.
The packaging is rather psychedelic, with a petrol-effect swirled with different colours of the rainbow and the bottle contains 150ml of product. The Cleanser itself has a pearlescent finish to it, along with a lovely, fresh and clean fragrance. I couldn't find information regarding the skin types this can be used on, so I am guessing it is suitable for all skin types, or it would perhaps say otherwise. I have combination skin with a touch of sensitivity, and had no problems using this cleanser.
You use the Glamglow GentleBubble Daily Conditioning Cleanser just like any other cream cleanser, by wetting the skin, and then applying a small amount to the face, massaging gently into the skin with circular motions, and then removing with water. I found that this cleanser managed to remove all traces of makeup, even when I was having a heavier makeup day, and afterwards my skin felt in great condition, and much more even.

The Glamglow GentleBubble Daily Conditioning Cleanser costs £19.50 for 150ml and you can find it online at Glamglow here.

Bare Minerals The Power Of Clean Beauty Collection Review

If you come here often, you will know that I love a QVC Beauty bargain and a little while ago, I ordered the Bare Minerals The Power Of Clean Beauty 6 Piece Coverage, Color (Colour US!) and Glow Collection which was on offer for £44.88 and on four easy pays, which meant the price was split between four months and interest free. I couldn't resist!
The items you receive within this collection are;
Bare Minerals Original Foundation SPF15 x2 in your choice of shade (£28.00 x 2 = £56.00)
A lightweight, water-resistant loose foundation with buildable coverage, perfect for concealing acne, scars, blemishes, hyper-pigmentation and smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Bare Minerals Barepro Glow Highlighter in the shade Free (£23.00)
Free is a warm pink-peach shade with duo-chrome pearl accents and this versatile liquid highlighter works to give a natural-looking highlight, whilst also blurring the look of pores and evening out the skin's appearance. The highlight is infused with oat sugar, green lentil extract and bamboo extract and can be used under, with or over your foundation.
Bare Minerals Gen Nude Eyeshadow Primer in the shade Exposed (£20.00)
Exposed is a neutralising slightly peach shade which is rich in minerals and gives a cream to powder texture to create the perfect base for your eyeshadow. This Primer also intensifies colour vibrancy and extends wear time as well as being crease-resistant and targeted to correct the look of imperfections and dullness.
Bare Minerals Lashtopia Mega Volume Mineral-Based Mascara (£21.00)
I have bought and loved this mascara previously and it has a whipped, mousse-like formula that lasts all day, whilst also being smudge-proof. I love the large luscious brush that has over 600 soft, staggered bristles to ensure every single lash is coated.
Barepro Longwear Lipstick in the shade Petal (£20.00)
This buttery-soft lipstick comes in the shade Petal, which is a soft rose shade and will suit the majority of skin tones. The Barepro Longwear Lipsticks combine mineral colour and natural lip care to give you long-wearing full-coverage colour with a weightless, soft matte finish.
If bought individually, this collection would cost £140.00, so you are paying just over a third of its value, which is incredible. Whether you are new to Bare Minerals and want to try out a few items at once or whether you just want to stock up on your favourites and save plenty of pennies, then this is definitely a great kit to go for.

As mentioned, the Bare Minerals The Power Of Clean Beauty Collection costs £44.88 and you can find it online at QVC UK here.
