Hey beauties! Long time... sorry about that. I've had a really jam-packed weekend to say the least...
V&A museum, Brick Lane thift shopping, drinks, Royal wedding street party (more drinks), Oxford street, Camden Crawl (yet more drinks), Mahikis, blockbuster visits, dog-walking with the neighbours little kids, and throw in a barbeque with the neighbours and tea with my big sis too! Few. To be honest dolls, I'm still recovering!
Here are a couple of snaps from the weekend...
Cute little vintage shop in Brick Lane.
I look special here. The owner of the diner tried to tie my headscarf for me... (£3 from Absolute Vintage, bargs!)
Cute little Will&Kate wedding day biscuits made my the kids across my street
Now, down to business. Mineral foundation. I was very kindly sent a 'LN Girls' mineral foundation along with some other of their products to try.
I have to admit I wasn't too keen about trying it, I'm stupidly picky with foundation (anything less than Chanel and I'm not a happy bunny), and I had never heard of this brand before but it really surprised me, so I thought I'd share it with you beauties.
I usually like a fair bit of coverage from a foundation, which I really wasn't expecting this to do, because it's in powder from. So, I decided to try it out on a day when I wouldn't be seeing anyone... haha.
I loaded it onto a brush, blew the excess and then just started sweeping across my face. It was quite difficult to get an even look, but I think this just takes practise. After about 10 minutes after application, it evened out.
I thought it looked quite dry and 'cakey' for the first couple of hours, but as the day went on it actually really impressed me.
It actually looked like a normal foundation, not a powder, and gave me the same coverage as my normal foundation. It stayed put too, lasting a good 10 hours or so.
The only bad thing I have to say about this product is that it made my skin feel a little dry throughout the day, it didn't look dry, just felt it. I am used to a proper moisture surge!
So, why choose a mineral foundation I hear you cry?
Well, for a start mineral foundations are organic. that means no dyes, talcs, fillers, chemical preservatives, animal by-products, synthetic fragrances that you may find in other make up products. Mineral products are made from gentle ingredients that wont damage your skin, cause infection or irritation.
Loose mineral foundation is the purest form of foundation available and is appropriate for every skin type, including those with very oily or sensitive skin
It works by refracting light which minimizes the appearance of discolourations and imperfections.
So, if any of you beauties with a lower budget are looking for a new foundation, I would definitely recommend you try Ln Girls mineral foundation, it £11.73 you can't go wrong. The link below will take you to the site.
Tata for now, and Cherish your skin! Xx
