Loving this week - Revlon, Garnier, Batiste...

Revlon ColorStay Foundation in 310 Warm Golden

I always like to have two types of foundations in my collection. One with a lighter coverage and one with full coverage and MAC Face & Body and Revlon ColorStay do exactly that for me.

Why particularly this shade? Coz it's finally an exact match to my NC30 skin tone. I love this foundation and have previously tried it in a gazillion shades and although it has made me look grey or pink or blue, I've still finished every drop of it!

I don't think this shade is available in the U.K though for some odd reason hence I always have to ebay it.

In short, you get full coverage, that lasts for a day or two or until you're finally bothered to remove it. It does not transfer, sets immediately, does not need powder and does not look cakey.

Still smells like paint and does not come with a pump. Life can't be perfect eh?

Garnier Intensive 7 days Body Lotion

They have a lot of variety available however I have the shea butter one coz I love the smell. Smells like almonds and butter to me. Delicious!

Of course it does not hydrate my body for 7 days as I tend to shower like other human beings, however it does hydrate pretty well for a day or two, sinks in immediately, is very light hence perfect for the summer.

£1.99 for a 250ml bottle in Boots, it's crazy cheap. Get it!

Batiste Dry Shampoo in XXL Volume and Boho

Batiste, just like Sleek does not fail to impress its fans and has two new offerings which are bigger and better.

If you haven't been a fan of their previous dry shampoo fragrances, then you have to try Boho as its so light, fresh and sweet. It's not floral at all. An overdose of this will not choke you. It's almost like a day fragrance.

However the XXLVolume has won my heart. Not only due to its pink packaging but because it's a hybrid of a dry shampoo, hairspray and texturising salt, all packed into one humongous bottle

It gave my hair so much hold that it did not move from its place for an entire day. Plus, it does not make the hair look or feel crisp or made up. It just naturally gives volume and texture and keeps the hair looking matte. You can however feel the texture and hold if you run your fingers through.

Love it for that beach hair effect. Lazy hair days can actually be fun now!

Share your weekly favourites!

My Colorstay shade is also Warm Golden, but it's a tad darker than my skin tone. Nice products you're loving there. I want to try some Batiste :)

I love that Garnier body moisturiser, however if you read the small print you have to use it everyday twice a day for 4 weeks and then you'll notice your skin is smooth for 7 days, and then you have to start the cycle again. Yeah okay, Garnier.
still, I love mine! xxx
