Touche Éclat Foundation & Anti-Cernes Concealer review

I had always wanted to try the Touche Éclat Foundation. I have seen so many beauty bloggers rave about this product, however I resisted for a while because I love my Chanel Vitalumière Aqua. However, after I came back from holiday, I had tanned so I decided rather than buying one shade darker in the Chanel foundation, I would try out the new YSL one.

I went to John Lewis and the lady colour matched me, I went with one shade lighter than she suggested because on my skin any type of foundation oxidises so much and leaves my skin dull.

Initial thoughts, I love how it made my skin look. My skin looked healthy and slightly dewy but not oily (I have dry skin). It doesn't feel like you are wearing anything at all. It is a very light coverage but still does even out your skin tone. I am not sure I would wear it for a night out but I love wearing it in the day. Doesn't streak and blends beautifully. I use a Real Techniques Expert face brush to apply it. I didn't particular notice any scent from the foundation but I don't really pay attention to that (unless of course it is super strong).

I had also wanted to try out the Touche Éclat since they had bought out some more colours. However, after testing them out, none still really did anything for me. I mentioned my severe dark circles to her as I have terrible dark circles that a hereditary, from sinus problems and I have PCOS so as you can imagine they are bad. I usually use Bobbi brown correctors in peach tone but they crease on me so damn much! I mentioned this to her so she tried out the Anti-Cernes Concealer and I was shocked as to how much it concealed.

Obviously, they didn't completely cover it (no amount of makeup will) but considering I didn't use the correctors this concealers really made a difference. Also, it was just the perfect colour for my skin. This was a surprising discovery as I didn't really expect to find something like this but I am so happy it did. It doesn't crease; it’s in stick form, so I apply it directly under my eyes and around my nose and then blend with a brush. One thing I like about stick concealers is that they don't get everywhere like all over your fingers.

Obviously, they are YSL so they are expensive, which is sad but I love them so much I will definitely be repurchasing.

I might do a comparison post of the Touche Éclat Foundation and Chanel Vitalumière Aqua since the coverage is the same. Let me know if you want to read that.

An instagram haul

OMG, I have not blogged since December! Anyway, I thought I would share with you a few things I have bought over the past few months. The pictures are from my Instagram. I actually like this display more than how blogger displays import photos so will be using this more.
For my Birthday in May, my mother and I went on our annual mother and daughter holiday and this year I decided to go to Russia. It was such a beautiful country. The palaces in Saint Petersburg! Oh my goodness, I loved it. We did a River Cruise so from Saint Petersburg to Moscow with stops at a few small villages. I loved it. Anyway since I was there, I thought for my birthday I would treat myself to a bag I had wanted for ages, the Lady Dior bag. I love this bag so much, it oozes class and it an elegant, classic piece. It’s in lambskins so I have to be very careful with it but it’s such a beauty. I didn’t get the patent leather though as I found it’s too difficult to open the bag (also heard a lot from reviews not to g…

Luxury haul ft Chanel, Christian Louboutin and Tiffany & Co

I have been very lucky of the past few months to buy some lovely luxury designer items and so I thought I would do a post of what I have bought.
Chanel Mini navy blue wallet bag with small purse

I really wanted the Chanel WOC and so when my mum and I went to Florence on our cruise holiday I decided to go into the Chanel store and see if they had it. They did and so the lady showed me the WOC and this one. Now I personally thought I would go for the WOC, as it was black with gold hardware and this one was in navy blue. I fell in love with this one. It's in patent calf leather, navy blue in colour and with silver hardware. It is beautiful. It also comes with a small purse inside. I don't actually know the name of this one and I did try to search for it. Anyway, it has a small chain and a zip compartment inside. It can fit quite a bit in! Also it is very resilient and doesn't scratch easily.I am very ashamed though that this is my fourth Chanel bag. I remember when my dream wa…
