Boudoir Privé?

Hey ladies!

Just found this new website, looks like another Glossybox style thing?
Apparently it'll be reasonable and have 6 products? But everyone's being a bit negative over this months glossy box... reckon this one will go the same way? hmmm

Let me know what you think, you can enter your email address for an 'exclusive invitation' (cringe) here

Barry M White Foundation

You know those products, that no matter how much you google you'll never find enough information about it? Maybe the odd blog post that just includes stock images (nowt wrong with them) but no swatches either? Barry M White Foundation is one of those products

So here's my review!

I'm not pale enough to wear it alone (besides I really don't think it would be very flattering to do so) so I mix it with Revlon ColorStay in Sand Beige, which is the second lightest colour. I bought it after one of those ha stuff you foundation I'm not gonna buy the lightest colour for once and I'm gonna make it work! Needless to say, I didn't make it work.

This is the process I go through to mix the two. You'd be forgiven for thinking the Barry M was a moisturiser its so creamy. And it is 'enriched with moisturisers' after all...

Click the picture to get a nice clear close up view (if that's your kinda thing)

It's such a basic product but you do get loads in the pot, and it really does work. Here it is on my face in all it's glory

My face matches my neck!

If you've got any questions just ask below :) I think it cost umm £6.19 but I know it'll last ages

On a side note, I wouldn't really recommend the other Barry M shades, I don't think the foundation would be hmm, comfortable enough to wear alone all over the face. Maybe a bit cakey and heavy.
Let me know what you think!

Feel Lucky Like A Four Leaf Clover

Hey everyoneee

Haven't blogged since forever so just wanted to say hello and that I hope you're all well.
My blog had its first birthday a couple of weeks ago and I totally didn't realise... eek

Have a Sunday FOTD...

Revlon Colorstay in Sand Beige
(which is too too dark so mixed with Barry M White Foundation)
Bourjois Brush Concealer
the new Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in Berry
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sidecar
Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama

Posie Tint by Benefit

Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Soft mixed with MUA Dark Brown Eyeshadow

Writing that list made me realise how much I love all these products I've used, definitely been my favourites for the past few months

And yes, I got Posie Tint from Glamour, I like it but I don't love it. It feels reeally cheap and I actually didn't realise how similar it is to the 2True version I reviewed here. They're practically identical. (sorry to all the Benefit lovers out there)

Let me know what you're loving at the moment, and also I want more blogs to read, so leave me yours or ones you love

Love Sophie xx
