We all know about the blemish blitzting properties of Sudocrem, but it still feels a bit wrong putting nappy rash cream on your face. Introducing Sudocrem Skin Care Cream…
In a handy tube this time instead of the tub, a little bit of this goes a very long way. It’s got all the magic ingredients of the old stuff, plus two more spot busting lovelies…citric acid and BHA. They’re advertising it as “Sudocrem…for grown ups” and say that;
‘It is ideal for problem-skin including spot prone, flaky or irritated areas and is great on dry patches such as elbows and knees.
Sudocrem Skin Care Cream can even be used after your skin’s exposure to the sun.’
Only £1.99/€2.99 in pharmacies nationwide.
As far as colour and texture go, this lippie is WINNING…plus it only costs $5.47/£6.29/€7.25
More of a peachy nude than a lot of other nudes I’ve tried, which is what I think I like. The concealer look really don’t do nothin’ for me and a lot of pink nudes have too much of a lilac undertone which washes me out. Here’s a closer look with flash…
For now, this is my make up bag nude lipstick staple. As ever though, I will keep searching.
Have you found your perfect nude?
I actually couldn’t remember what my natural hair colour was, I’ve been dying it “darkest brown” for years and the only indication that this nearly black shade wasn’t my natural colour were the slightly lighter roots.
I read a bit about Scott Cornwall’s Colour B4 product online which claims to be “the safest and most effective way to remove an undesirable hair colour”
How it works:
- Colour B4 shrinks the artificial dye molecules in the hair, enabling you to simply wash them away.
- What’s more Colour B4 does not touch your natural hair pigment so you are left with the colour which lay beneath your artificial shade
- Colour B4 takes you back to your lightest shade.
- It will return your hair to its natural colour if the artificial hair colour applied is darker than your natural level.
I strongly recommend that you read the instructions entirely as they go into a lot of detail about how the product actually works and helps you to understand the importance of the rinsing stage and what to do after.
I applied Colour B4, wrapped my hair in clingfilm and a towel to aid the process and left on for sixty minutes. Then I rinsed continuously for ten minutes with warm water, applied the buffer part C, left on for one minute then rinsed for a further ten. I finished by applying the buffer again just as you would with normal shampoo, lathering then rinsing out. This is a hell of a long time rinsing, but it’s really important you do this stage right.
I had read a lot of reports about how bad this stuff smells, but I honestly didn’t think it was any worse than normal hair dye!
I could immediately see that my hair was lighter, even when wet. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get a brush through it as I hadn’t used any conditioner and I thought that it might be a bit straw-like after all that rinsing but it was no different to normal, perhaps even a little softer.
Here are some before and after pics…
Not quite sure if these pics really do it justice, my hair is at least three shades lighter…this stuff really works, doesn’t damage your locks, is cheap and foolproof. Oh and the weirdest part is when you wash it out you don’t actually see any colour go down the drain?!
Have you tired Colour B4? Or had a hair colour disaster you’d like to correct?
After admiring Jennifer Lopez’ beautifully soft shimmering eye make up at the American Idol audition stages, I went searching for a product to try and recreate her look and let me tell you it wasn’t as easy as it sounds.
After trying numerous loose pigments and fine glitters, myself and my make up artist friend @Ornagh9 came to the conclusion that it probably wasn’t a dry product that was used as everything we tried was either too gold or silver, or reflected green light. We were searching for something much more subtle with a white base, when we stumbled across the Lorac stand in Ulta and one lone shimmer product…
Priced at $16, Lorac say; “This long-lasting liquid shimmer can be applied over eyeshadow or worn alone on eyes and cheeks for luminous, prismaticm three-dimensional sparkle and shine”.
Simply shake to activate then use the dropper to dispense a tiny amount of liquid on the back of your hand or a palette then use your finger or a brush to pat this on your eyelids.
The best thing about this product? No fall down!! So quick and easy, you don’t need a primer, base or any kind of mixing medium…this adheres and dries immediately and is buildable, no mess. I’d definitely repurchase this, BUT I doubt I’ll ever need to, a little goes a long long way.
Perfect for eyes, maybe a bit too shimmery for cheeks and I’m yet to try on the lips but I think a dab in the centre of the bottom lip would look amazing in photos.
Still trying to recreate the rest of JLo’s look…might be trying a while yet.
Again, this swatched beautifully. Creamy, intense and I could even handle the slight shimmer. Until I tried it on the waterline that was. Shimmer particles being that close to your eyeball (HATE that word) really isn’t such a good idea, I didn’t like the feel of this one on my eye although it did glide on seamlessly in one stroke. Here’s what it looks like on…
…it’s definitely there, but not nearly good enough. The blackness faded way too fast and was super slippy…creeping out towards the corners. This cost around €9 and again would be fine for a smudged out smoke, but didn’t cut it as a “waterproof” liner.
So the question still remains, if I had the proper black shades in either of these pencils could one of them be a winner? Hard to tell, but I’m so annoyed with them I don’t think I’ll be parting with any more of my hard earned cash to find out.
Am I missing a completely in your face obvious solution? What liners have you tried? Next on my list is the Sumita Beauty Eyeliner which Kim Kardashian’s make up artist @JoyceBonelli replied to me on twitter recommending. If it’s good enough for Kimmy…..
