Lacura Beauty

So i was on my way home from North London and come across Aldi so i decided to have a wonder in and i remember reading a few blogs about the Aldi brand Lacura Beauty, so i decided to pick up a few items, first thing i picked up was there foundation in 40 bronze, which is there darkest shade. I also picked up a Power Blush in 76 Sunset, This is a lovely colour, great for an every day look. The packaging is very simple but nice not cheap looking yet only cost me £2.39 each!! BARGIN I think!


So i decided to test out the goods for the day

<<< So sorry for the ugly picture , but as you can see i have dark circles, red patches and uneven skin tone... by the way i don't use canceller, I just cant be arse to be honest + it just seems to cake up on me, even when using high end brands like MAC and Illamasqua.

This is my finished face, What ya think? >>>

I think the coverage is amazing and this is just the foundation on, nothing else  i.e setting power or a primer base. 

The foundation seems to cover all my uneven skin and redness. 

I give this a 10/10 for an Inexpensive foundation. 
I didn't need to touch up or reapply for the day, it lasted about 6 to 7 hours perfect on my face and the formula was perfect for my skin type as I have dry patchy skin and some foundations just seem to cake and crack after an hour.





As for the Blush, i love the colour and it lasted me about 6
hours with out the need for reapplying.

I will defiantly be going back to buy more from this brand and I cant wait to test out other shades of the blush and maybe pick up some eyeshadow as well as maybe the skin care range :)

Lacura Beauty foundation in 40 bronze
Lacura Beauty powder Blush in 76 Sunset
HD Brows palette in Vamp
Mac Of Summer satin eye shadow
collection 2000 Extreme 24 hour felt tip liner in black
Make up forever smoky lash mascara in extra black
Origins brow fix
Elysambre Lipstick in shade 204 ( from my JolieBox )

So Ladies what do you think? Have you tried this brand? Would you? Let me know your thoughts :)

Nixoderm for skin problems!

Nixoderm, Have you tried this? what do you think? was browsing though Ebay as i always do... was looking for something for my skin problems (I have dry patches on my face with the off spot outbreaks and redness), but didn't want to spend a fortune, I then came across this:
At first i thought it looks a little doggy but then i googled some reviews about this and read loads of good things so i through ah why not?! So i went ahead and brought one from HERE. It turned up 2 days later and first thing i did was open it and take a big sniff of it! W.O.W (word of warning) DO NOT DOT THAT! lol brought tears to my eyes. It has a very strong funky fishy/moth ball smell, not very pleasant at all.

Ingredients:
benzoic acid 6%, titanium dioxide 10%, salicylic acid 2.5%, menthol 1.1%, precipitated sulphur 4.6%, in a smoothing emollient base.


Instructions: Bathe affected parts in warm water with mild or toilet soap. Apply nixoderm leberally night and morning rub in gently. for delicate skin, dilute with petroleum jelly. 

Due to the strong smell and thick consistance i will only use this before bed, but only on nights the hubby isn't home as he did give me a funny look n asked me if i was trying to get rid off the moths from  the flat! That night i had a huge spot on my chin :( ugly thing big and red, wasn't nice one bit so i stick some of this stuff on and went to bed next day the spot was nearly gone! not red any more nor did it hurt or needed squeezing (i kno i kno your not meant to squeeze spots), i also have two large  patches on my face where its always dry and this stuff is starting to help that nicely :) so in just a few days of having this stuff i give it a 9/10 as it is defiantly a miracle worker on my skin, Cheap and effective only downfall is the smell :) Let me know what you think?! Have you tried this? Cant go wrong for less then  £2.50!
