Yves Saint Laurent ‘Touche Éclat Le Teint’ Review

Hi everyone today I will be reviewing the Yves Saint Laurent ‘Touche Éclat Le Teint’ Foundation, Now this is a high end make up product which normally I am very much against because I feel like I am wasting my money, when there is probably a product on the high street which is just as good,however this product is actually amazing value for money if you have a bit extra to spend on a quality foundation. I struggle with my skin and always have with acne, I have tried a number of high street foundations with pretty bad results most causing a breakout, I finally found one which worked the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, however one day I got a magazine which had a sample of the YSL foundation in which I reluctantly used due to my history of foundations, but my skin looked and felt even better than it had ever been before. So the next time I was in John Lewis I looked for the foundation and had it colour matched to my skin tone and it was amazing so good that I have repurchased it again and I’m running out so need to make another shopping trip. It feels incredible on my skin, it’s so lightweight it doesn’t feel like I’ve got any foundation on, but at the same time it is medium to high coverage and is easily blended. They have 22 different skin tones to suit pretty much any complection, I suggest being matched by the staff member on the counter though to get a true match. Also a little goes a very long way mine lasted me a good 7-8 months possibly more. The price tag is slightly up there with it being £30 for 30ml but I think it is truely worth it, as in my opinion it is the best foundation I’ve ever used and my skin had never looked better whilst using this product plus it lasts a very long time without meltin off your face. In my opinion a great dupe for this product is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation as it is only £10 and has the same properties, but If you do want to splash the cash then I would definitely recommend the YSL foundation. So overall I give this product 9/10. You can find this product at John Lewis, Debenhams, Feel unique.

You can find the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation- Superdrug

Maybelline New York Lash sensational mascara Review

Today I will be reviewing Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara, I have been using this mascara for about 2 months now and I have fallen in love with it, now I always used to buy Maybelline mascara anyway so I knew that it should be good when I bought it,but I didn’t realise how good it was actually going to be. I got mine from Superdrug and it costs £7.99, which I personally think is really good for the quality of the product. The wand is a really great shape to get all of your lashes and it helps add lots of volume and I can even get my bottom lashes with out getting it everywhere.

The actual formula of the product is also great and does not clump on your lashes like some mascara’s do, it creates volume and length to your lashes and leaves them looking luscious and long for a prolonged period of time. I’ve also tested out the waterproof version of this product and the formula really is waterproof as I went swimming in my local pool and went in a hot tub with it on and it stayed put, no panda eyes for me, but it also can be removed easily when using my micellar water and a cotton pad. The packaging is really nice and attractive to the eye , and they have a large range of different kinds such as waterproof, luscious oils, intense black etc. So it all depends on what type of look you are going for. So over all this product is a 10/10 and is going to be one of my go to mascaras of 2016, as I have already repurchased it 3 times in the past 2 months, I definitely recommend it to anyone since there is so many options for what you are looking for.I will link below where you can buy it in the Uk but it should be in any Boots, Superdrug or anywhere they sell Maybelline Make up. Thank you for reading my post.
