Foundation First impression!♡

Hi lovelies ☺

Eeek, I’m so excited to share this first impressions review with you!! It is a strange but interesting one, something I got on a whim after seeing a YouTuber review it☺

The product I’m talking about is the ’16 Brand Foundation’. Your probably thinking, ugh never heard of it!! 😂 You probably won’t have, I hadn’t until I saw this review.. but as soon as I saw it in action I was hooked & just had to try it for myself ☺😍

How cute is the packaging though? I mean if your a sucker for pretty things; like me, you’ll be sure to love this!!😃

Although it is quite cute the jam jar appearance is slightly messy as it had a clear seal on the inside which is covered in foundation, once you get passed this though you can use the super cute spatula to spoon a small amount into the lid!!☺ when I mean small, I mean small….

Here’s how it looks when it has been applied using my Real Techniques Sponge..

And here’s how it looks using my Real Techinques buffing brush…

Out of both methods I’ve got to say it applied a lot better using the sponge due to the thick consistency & VERY high coverage☺ As you can tell by the pictures the results with the sponge are far better than that of the brush, which for me was a surprise!😮

This stuff is amazing.. although it was very high in coverage it was very lightweight feeling on the skin & did not break me out! 😃 HOORAAAAAAY!!!

Not only was this gorgeous alone, my collection concealer blended like a dream on top of it!😍 plus, I did not feel the need to set it as it set down on its own after a short while 🙂(my skin has been dry lately, if yours is oily you may want to consider powder!)

Here’s how the foundation looks with all my makeup on…

I adore how well it covers my blemishes & redness while still looking and feeling light on the skin☺

It even wore well… after 6 hours it looked basically the same as when it was applied!👏

The only down sides to this foundation is that there aren’t many shade choices, plus I bought mine on Amazon & it’s now not listed on there so I’m not sure where else it is stocked!!😮

Overall, I really enjoy this product & will probably reach for it again when I want a more full coverage look🙂

What do you guys think? Have you heard much about this brand!?🙂

First Impression Friday: St. Tropez Gradual Tan ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

So spring is upon us & its that time of year again when we want to start looking a bit healthier (or at least less vampy!!!).
To begin this transition into spring/summer skin I decided to take the plunge & buy the St Tropez Gradual Tan! I’ve heard such good things about this brand & product, but never took the plunge.

St Tropez Gradual Tan
– light/medium skin formula
– 100% natural tanning agent
– natural streak-free colour
– easy to use

Before I applied this product I had a shower, I didn’t exfoliate my body, I just washed as usual. I like to apply my tan on a night before I go to bed, so it can develop over night & I wake up a bronze goddess 🙂

This gradual tan comes in two shades light/medium & medium/dark! Being very pale I chose the lightest one! To apply this product it is very simple as the product is a cream formula which comes out white. As this is a gradual tan, it acts as a moisturiser & tan in one, which always wins me over!

While applying this gradual tan I noticed it had quite a fragrant, floral scent, which to me was very pleasant as with most gradual tans you get that ‘fake tan’ odour!!!! (Ew!) I was very pleased with this as throughout the development of the tan it only had a slight fake tan smell, which is a winner & one of the main reasons I wanted to try it in the first place! 🙂

When I woke up the tan was quite noticeable, I am very fair & not used to any sort of tan. Anyway, I went into the bathroom to have a peak at my new tan, to my surprise it looked very natural & healthy. I was astounded by the beautiful, streak-free finish & guess what? No funky smell either. Yipeeee!!! Plus, it moisturises my skin PERFECTLY. It sinks into the skin quite quick, leaving your body feeling nourished all day!👍

ST Tropez has really got it down good with their Gradual Tan, I knew there was a reason why everyone loved this brand so much! :)❤

Have you tried this product or any other from this brand? If so, what did you think?

Lots of Love Natasha

I finally found enough courage & confidence to post my first ever makeup tutorial on YouTube!

I know it’s not the best but I don’t think it’s bad for my first video! I hope to improve as I do more videos, getting used to doing my makeup in front of a lens is going to be difficult but makeup is a passion of mine I would like to share 🙂

Feel free to comment/rate/subscribe!

I would also love it if you could leave me comments below the video on what you would like me to film in the future, thank you! ♡
