Clinique Moisture Surge Spray | Review

parfums-clinique-pas-cherIMG_3399

“Water your skin. Take along a refreshing face spray for showers of thirsty skin relief. Bursting with moisture and active aloe. But not a drop of oil. Rapidly replenishes skin’s moisture level, restoring balance. Softens and soothes in a flash.” – Clinique

I only purchased this yesterday but I’m already in love! While not marketed as a toner, I use it at the toning stage after using an exfoliating toner and before serums/moisturiser, however it can also be used over makeup throughout the day. I don’t normally like using sprays on top of makeup as they tend to add a more dewy finish to the skin but as this has no oils in it doesn’t create a shine, which I love.

It instantly adds moisture to the skin and you can really feel it working, larely due to the glycerin and aloe water in the ingredients, which thankfully don’t include alcohol or fragrance. On a hot day this would be great to pop in the fridge to give an extra cooling effect.

Initially I did wish it came in a larger bottle, however this size is great for traveling or putting in your kit. Perhaps then the price could be lower as I do feel it is slightly overpriced, but lovely nonetheless.

Ingredients:
Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Centella Asiatica (Hydrocotyl) Extract, Saccharomyces Lysate Extract, Yeast Extract\Faex\Extrait De Levure, Caffeine, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile), Trehalose, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sucrose, Sorbitol, Disodium EDTA, Potassium Sorbate, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol

Clinique Moisture Surge Spray is £21 for 125ml and available from Clinique.co.uk

Phee’s Makeup Tips Glow Highlight Powder: New Shades! | Review

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 16.51.441
Phee recently added four new shades to her range of highlight powders so I obviously had to buy them all. You can see my review of the original here. I bought the whole set bundle which came to £35, plus you get 20% off which ends this Friday (8th May) so if you fancy picking some up then I suggest you do it now. I wanted to get another of the original to put in my kit so this bundle was the best option. You can also buy them separately or in duos.

All the new shades are incredibly beautiful, but if I had to choose a favourite it would be Mariposa, which I used on my eyes and cheeks in this recent tutorial.


Glow Highlight Powder is £8 for 2.5g and bundles are available from pheesmakeupshop.com

A few weeks ago when at House of GlamDolls I had the pleasure of meeting Omayma Ramzy, a makeup and hair artist who has started to make her own lipsticks. I was looking through her range and she was kind enough to gift me with the shade I liked most!

The lipsticks come in a cute little package that includes the lipstick, a tag with the shade name on and a selection of sequins.

The shade I got is called Pop! The Cherry and it’s a bright cherry pink that looks more red in the bullet than how it transfers onto the skin.

The colour and texture are lovely and it lasts well on the lips. Here’s a shot of me wearing it.

As far as I’m aware the lipsticks aren’t available to buy yet, so be sure to follow her social media to keep up to date.

“The portraits I create express a perspective on human styling that does not rely on conventional clothing, hair, makeup or accessories but rather an aesthetic derived from the use of unusual materials and makeup to create otherworldly personas.”
