L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation Review

Loreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation (£ 7.99). It claims to last up to 24 hours. It covers blemishes, redness and even tattoos! Read more for my reviews.

It is a full coverage foundation which lasts upto 24 hours and is lightweight. It covers blemishes, spots, imperfections and a lot more. Which gives you a perfect matte base. It has 30% more pigment which allows you to use less product and have more coverage.

Price is £7.99 at superdrug.com. Prices can be different in stores.

I have 24 which is golden beige. I have olive skin tone so i thought this shade would work for me. And it did match my skin tone very well.

I am happy with the foundation as it comes in a small tube but goes a long way for coverage. It is thick in consistency which was a bit hard for me to apply. One of the beat thing is that it offers good coverage and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.

Here are some beauty benefits of saffron which I personally use and are very effective.

#1 Removes Suntan
Skin tanning is not good for your skin it is caused due to sun exposure. And sun tan can make you complexion look dark and bad. But don’t worry saffron to your rescue. Home remedies like saffron and a combination of ingredients with it are a better option than bleaching the skin. Bleaching causes excessive dryness, burning and further darkening. It also reduces the smoothness of your skin to a large extent. Take a few strands of saffron and add milk cream and leave it overnight. Mix this with your fingers in the morning and apply where needed. This will lighten your tan and you will get a glowing skin.

#2 Cures Acne
 Saffron has anti-bacterial qualities, which is ideal for curing acne. It protects the skin from harmful free radicals and makes your skin flawless.
Make a paste by crushing some leaves of basil with a few strands of saffron. Dab the paste with your fingers over the acne to shrink them and wash off your face with cold water after 10 to 15 minutes. Saffron and basil work well to prevent and cure acne.

#3 Saffron As A Toner
Saffron can help in toning. Toner is used after cleansing the skin. If you want a natural toner all you have to do is mix saffron in rose-water and let it give its colour to it. Dab it on your face with a cotton pad. And then you’re done.

#4 Skin Lightener
Saffron is an excellent skin lightening agent that helps to lighten your skin tone. Soak a few strands of saffron in milk for half an hour to let the milk get its colour and other benefits. Add a teaspoon of sandalwood powder to this and apply the pack on your face and neck. Keep it for 15-20 minutes before washing it off. Regular use of this pack will help improve and brighten your skin tone. You can also soak saffron and add it in olive oil and massage it on your face.

#5 Saffron For Pigmentation
No other natural ingredient can help you with pigmentation only saffron has these properties.
Turmeric being a natural antiseptic and also a skin lightening agent. Saffron and turmeric can work very well . Soak 8-10 strands of saffron in a tablespoon of rose-water and add 1 tablespoon turmeric to it. Mix well to make a smooth paste and then apply it on your face as a mask for 15 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.

By looking at these beauty benefits of saffron it will surely compel you to use saffron in your daily beauty regime. Be all set to flaunt the skin which every eye follows 🙂

My Cellulite & Stretch Mark Story

16839431_1410153562362244_290023333_n

Hey Guys, its me Nikki once again with my cellulite and stretch mark story. Hope you like it 🙂

First I’m going to talk about Nivea Q10 Plus Goodbye Cellulite Gel-Cream and then I’ll be going through  the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks

Ok so as nothing worked for me before with my cellulite I was worried and I thought i was wasting my money on another cream once again. I had so much of negative points that nothing ever worked and my cellulite has been worse. I mean what can a cream do with cellulite it can only moisturize right ? But i was totally wrong. I was surprised by the results in two weeks I used it after shower continuously for two weeks. It really did tone my body a lot and my cellulite was not that noticeable as they were two weeks back i was so impressed and I thought this is a god gift for me 🙂  The Gel-Cream comes in a plastic tube bottle. It’s a blue smooth gel with a very light and nice scent which was very pleasant to me. This product is fantastic. I definitely would suggest this to anyone who has cellulite and would want to conceal it. This is a miracle product.

Now onto Stretch Marks
Ok the same story and problem with stretch marks nothing was working until i found about Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks . For stretch marks I used to have bio oil but that didn’t work for me. This is a value for money product and I’ve been using this since 4 weeks. It smells like chocolate/cocoa mixed which I love 🙂 It does absorbs quickly. It really did help me with my stretch marks. My stretch marks did not go away but they did fade. The cream comes with a handy nozzle which is easier to use and  you are not left with a greasy bottle which looks untidy.

If you have this problem which I had and nothing worked for you. Then You should give this a go and maybe this time it will work 🙂

My Beauty Essentials

16810498_1302869356468102_1531555127_o
Hi guys I was very confused about what I should write in my first blog post but then I thought I should start with my beauty essentials. In the last few years I have known about my skin and makeup a lot. And I think I am much more confident now with what I do and have. As we all have our favourite makeup products I also have some and I will share them with you. These all are my everyday beauty essentials !

maybelline
Face :- Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless
This is the best drugstore foundation I have used. It gives a matte finish which keeps your skin matte and ready to go.This foundation makes my skin look smooth, matte and soft. I use the shade 220 which is a dark rusty yellow colour. It builds up to a solid medium to full coverage. And it feels light on the skin so you don’t have to worry and take your blotting sheets with you everywhere. It is also good at covering up blemishes. And I really think that this foundation would look good on all skin types.

kl
Derma V10 Q10 Innovations – Day Cream
I’m obsessed with this day cream ive been using this cream since 1 week . And the results I am seeing are incredible. It moisturize your skin and keeps your skin feel so nourished and soft. It does not feel heavy on the face and feels light. It has carnitine leaves which makes your skin feel refreshed and is for all skin types. Would recommend this to everyone.

Derma V10 Q10 Innovations – Night Cream
I also have the night cream of Derma as I loved the day cream so I thought why not try the night cream aswell. It restores firmness and gives a fresh feel to the skin as the day cream does, does not leave your skin greasy and I love this product. Feels slightly thicker than the day cream.

nivea
NIVEA MEN Sensitive Post Shave Balm
Ok so this product here is something very weird because it’s a men post shave balm which I use as a primer. I looked at this on Nikkie Tutorials on YouTube telling about this product and how good it is. It’s a thin formula.  This is the best primer and im totally in love with this. I have used a lot of primers but this one is the best.And lastly its affordable !

body
Beautifully Scrumptious Body Butter  (Cocoa)
There is a disclaimer here, is that I bought this from bodycare and it does not a have a website so I can’t link it.
Its been few months ive been using this body butter and it is so soft, it makes your body glow and it nourishes the skin  And the fragrance of this is like so yummy to be honest it smells like coffee.
It’s great for a person like me who loves coffee 🙂 .

Nuage Micellar Cleansing Water
Nuagé Micellar Water is so gentle and does not irritate my skin. First use, I felt the scent of chamomile was very strong. I only use a tiny amount. It is great if I am in a rush as a 1-step cleanser and I get the feeling it will be useful for travelling because it cleanses, tones calms the skin and removes makeup. The price is really not that bad for £ 1.30 for a 200 ml bottle. The only thing that sometimes bothers  me is that the smell is strong.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
This my Holy Grail Powder ! I always use this and use it on a daily basis. It feels lightweight and you stay matte. I’ve tried high-end powders and most of them, especially for the price. I use the product to cover my foundation and it hides the red spots on my face. It makes a matte finish as well so that’s great.

Kat Von D ‘Shade And Light’ face contour palette
Product which is a value for money ! I’ve been using this contouring palette since 1 year and I love this palette. It has six shades in total & includes 3 shade powder in Sombre, Shadowplay and Subconscious. And the light powder in Lucid, Lyric, and Levitation. For my contour I use Subconscious and a bit of sombre. It’s a great palette for contouring. And also value for money palette.

technic
Technic GET GORGEOUS Highlighter
This is a good budget friendly highlighter. It really is a pigmented highlighter. So i was unsure of buying this highlighter and checked out so many reviews before buying this as i didn’t know if it would be that good or not. But after I bought it my point of view of this highlighter just changed. As it was very buildable. It is a icy snow type colour if you prefer more golden toned then you probably wouldn’t like this.

NYC – Smooth Bronzing Skin Face Powder
This is my favourite bronzer of all time i have the shade 720A Sunny. I have ordered this a lot of times. It has a good coverage, matte and easy to blend. And another thing is that it is the perfect dupe for Benfit’s hoola bronzer. Who wouldn’t want a dupe for it ? As we all love hoola bronzer! A great price.
Will highly recommend.

anastasia
Eyebrow:- Anastasia Beverly Hills Diprbrow Pomade
Hands Down the best brow product ive ever used! I use the shade Dark Brown. But you should just take a little amount of it when applying as a little goes a long way. It is worth the high price. I absolutely love this product and have used a lot of them. I never tend to go out without doing my brows so this is something which is very essential to me that is why I have kept it in my beauty essentials.

16810857_1407197919324475_72173121_o
Eyes:- PS… Lash Defining Mascara
I wanted to try an affordable mascara and then after lot of going to stores here and there. I went to primark and looked at their makeup collection and it was huge as they have so variety to choose from and its affordable too. So I bought this PS Lash Defining Mascara. And now it has become my go to, favourite mascara. I have loved it so  much that I have been to primark again and bought three more in case they run out of it or it gets discontinued. The formulation is just right  not too wet, not too dry, the colour is a great shade of mid-black .

16810897_1407197079324559_1410093520_o
Lips:- Vaseline Lip Therapy Aloe Vera
As I don’t wear lipsticks that much well not even that much i rarely wear lipstick. So my favourite lip balm is Vaseline as it soothes my lips and my lips feel so soft and nice. I wanted to share a story with this essential. Once i really had these painful cracked lips and then I used this as my mom suggested me to try this and magic happened this cured my lips in days and i was so happy and from the  I use this always and have it in my too. This a very important beauty essential for me.

16810826_1407197799324487_1793711697_o
Fragrance:- Nivea Pearl & Beauty Anti-Perspirant Deodorant
The main thing which I really liked was the packaging a girly packaging which looks so cute. It has a floral type of scent. It is very calm on skin and doesn’t irritate my arm pits. I would really recommend every girl to buy this product.

So this is it for now these all were my beauty essentials which are important to me.
Stay tuned. 🙂
