Christmas Wishlist...

I hate that i'm excited for xmas already, as it's over a month away, but with decorations / adverts / songs everywhere I go, i can't hide from it!

I always make little wish lists around xmas time, as a little hint to my parents ;) Obviously i would never get all of these things, but these are some things that have caught my eye...

Urban Decay Naked Palette // ASOS Rose Gold Boyfriend Watch // Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation // YSL Parisienne // Catch Kidston 2 Fold Makeup Bag // Topshop Studded Vectra Shoes // YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick (Nude Beige) // Slippers (xmas isn't xmas without slippers!) // Hangover 2 DVD

Would love to see your wish-lists, 
Link me to your blog if you make one :-)

Bourjois Healthy Mix Review...

Say hello to my new favorite foundation!

I have been contemplating getting this foundation for a while, and when i got a spout of spots on my chin i decided to try it out & i am so glad i did! I got shade "51" (the lightest shade they stock) and it is a perfect match. The consistency is creamy, but still light and easy to blend. It smells like fruit, which is also another huge bonus as most heavy foundations smell like paint! The coverage it much better than expected too...

I know this is vile, but wanted to show how much it works... * embarrassing breakout*

Price: £9.99

Coverage: medium - heavy

Colour Match: 10/10!

Packaging: 9/10 - love that it has a pump, unlike Revlon / Estee Lauder!

(Left = Bourjois healthy mix // Right = Estee Lauder Double Wear)

The colour is so similar to my colour in the double wear foundation and the coverage is buildable, so almost as good as double wear. Although to be honest, i will still reach for DW on bad skin days! I would highly recommend this foundation though to anyone who is looking for a medium, natural looking coverage. It's easily build-able and is just a good all rounder!

Would love to know if any of you have tried this!
& what are your favorite foundations?
