The Eyelash Icon!...

The Shu Uemura eyelash curlers... a total icon in the beauty industry!

Id never really splashed out on eyelash curlers before, I'm ashamed to say it now, but my pair before these were a pair of Primark's finest lol! It wasn't until that pair crumpled in my hands one morning that it was time to invest in a pair!

The day my poor primarni pair broke, i was browsing on Buyapowa and spotted this beaut, i decided that it was fate and needless to say, i immediately clicked the "join co-buy" button... and haven't looked back since! ;) lol

They-re quick sturdy, but i find they create such a nice curl in my lashes that lasts. Once my eyelashes are in the curlers I give them a couple of "pumps", if you know what i mean lol, an it make my eyelashes really pop!

I cant remember how much i paid for these bad boys, but they regularly feature on Buyapowa, so if your in the market from a pair of eyelash curlers, id highly recommend checking that site out... actually, go check it out anyway, you can score some amazing bargains!! lol

Hope all you beauts out there are having a great week!

L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer...

The L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer is a light replenishing base which illuminates the skin. It may be used as a base or alone. A fresh, light and silky soft formula that provides 8 hours of hydration.

I first spotted this on Beauty & Le Chic and would swatch it every time I went into Boots, but never bought it as I already have a few highlighters in my collection. Well, needless to say, when Boots had their promotion of L'Oreal products on a 3 for 2 offer, I couldn't resit picking it up! & Im so glad I did!!

This has become a staple in my morning makeup routine! I don't use this as an all over primer, more as a highlighter and also use it under my eyes, I also occasionally mix this together with my foundation to give my skin and extra boost. I also do find this primer to be quite hydrating on my skin, and with the the air-con blasting out at work at the moment, my skin needs every extra bit moisture it can get!!
As someone with sensitive skin, this doesn't irritate or break me out, and gives my skin a real glow. I picked mine up in the Boots 3 for 2 offer, but this usual retails for around £9.99. Its a product that id totes recommend! Iv swatched the foundation from the Lumi Magique line but the colours just don't suit my skin tone, but id love to try out their highlighting concealer next!.

The 1 Second Miracle ...Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover

Ok, so the "1 Second" bit is quite a fib on their part, id say more like 10 - 15 seconds and a couple of swipes! But im so glad I finally bought this! Iv been reading about this on other blogs for a while and have always gone to purchase it, but backed out at the last minute.

Well, its safe to say im glad i finally took the plunge. This stuff truly is a miracle! Gone are the days of whacking out all my nail varnish remover products, wasting cotton wool and spending ages trying to get stubborn nail polish off! This stuff wipes it off no problem and smells amazing! Obviously, if you stick your nose into the pot and take a whiff it does smell of nail polish remover, but leaves the loveliest scent of red berries and vanilla on your nails.

Its Acetone-free formula is gentle on nails and cuticles and its enriched with nourishing sweet almond oil, so after taking my nail out of the pot i'll rub the oil into my cuticles for a bit of extra pampering. On a sciency note, its Paraben-free and Dermatologically tested.

This is one product that I have no idea how I lived without for so long, if you haven't already picked up a pot, id totes recommend it!! As a person who likes to change their nail polish allot (& is slightly lazy lol) its super quick an easy! I picked mine up for around £4.99 ...Plus, Bourjois products are 3 for 2 at the moment in Superdrug!

Hope all you lovelies are having a great weekend.
