August Empties #3

After a few months of using up mostly skincare, I've actually used up some makeup this month and for me that doesn't seem to be an easy feat. As always, I've shared a mini review of each and whether I would re-purchase it again.

Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation in NEW shade 05 Porcelain

I've harped on for years on this blog about the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation, including it in so many posts from makeup menus to empties to hauls, as well as my initial glowing review many years ago here. If you are after a high coverage, mattifying foundation that will not break you out, then Vichy's foundation is one I will recommend until I'm blue in the face. However my only gripe has always been that the lightest shade is 15 Opal, which really isn't light enough for very pale skin and only works on me with very careful blending.

So when I found out that Vichy have released three new shades of the Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation (and in new sleek, black packaging to boot) including a paler shade called 05 Porcelain, I was over the moon and couldn't wait to try it. Although this still isn't the palest shade out there, it is much better suited to my skintone and therefore application is so much quicker than with 15 Opal. 05 Porcelain is quite yellow in tone, but this doesn't translate at all on the skin. I have included a photo of 05 Porcelain compared to 15 Opal so you can really see the difference between the shades.

The other new shades available in the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation are suited for darker skins and are 65 Coffee and 75 Espresso. The full price is £18.00 but you can find them online for £15.30 here.

Will you be giving any of the new shades a try?

Mascaras on Trial

I have multiple blushers, eyeshadows, lip products, nail polishes... but when it comes to mascara, normally one is enough for me. Especially when they need replacing every 3 or 4 months! However, recently and unexpectedly, four new ones came into my life all around the same time and I've been rotating them daily to trial and compare. As judge and jury, it's now time to deliver my verdicts.

Currently Loving: Roger and Gallet Hand Creams

I have mentioned countless times over the years that my favourite hand creams are by the French brand L'Occitane and I'm never usually without one (I always stock up when Marie Claire give them away free every winter!). However recently I've been reaching for the Roger and Gallet hand creams in Fleur de Figuier and Bienfiats and do you know what, they are very close to knocking L'Occitane off the top spot.

Naturisimo Cleanse and Polish Discovery Box

When it comes to buying green and organic beauty products, Naturisimo is my one stop online shop. They stock a massive range of brands such as Green People, Oskia, Jurlique and Jane Iredale, covering hair, makeup, skin and more. Every so often they put together a one off themed beauty box and the latest is the Cleanse and Polish Discovery Box, which I couldn't pass up.
