Summer make up!

Hello lovelies!

I thought I'd just post a bit of info about the make up I wore yesterday; well mainly the BB cream but thought I'd include some of the other products I have purchased over the past few months.

   I felt a bit wrong applying my usual foundation as it was so warm and sunny so I thought I'd try out my new 17 BB Blemish balm in light shade and I must say...I am very impressed! 
Even with a small amount it applies thick enough to cover up any slight blemishes I have and the shade sits perfectly on my pale skin!
It surprised me how long it lasts; a lot longer than my usual foundation (L'oreal True Match) and it gives me a much more natural dewy look and at £6.99 from Boots you can't go wrong!!

It boasts on the box that it can help improve the skin condition within 4 weeks...I'll get back to you on that one.
The only down side I have noticed is the slight tackiness once applied but this dries after a minute or so! 

All in all a brill product in my eyes and Its going to be my go to skin product over the summer..might even save me some dosh on the silly amounts of foundations I fail with!





1. 17 Blemish BB Balm - Boots £6.99

2. Maybelline Master Drama Khol u/black - Boots £4.49

3. Nars Orgasm blush- Space NK £21.50

4. Real Techniques buffing brush ( purchased as part of core collection) £20.99
(Oohhh whilst i remember.. Superdrug are doing an offer on RT brushes, buy one get one half price. I got the core collection and the blush brush for £26!)

5. Sleek contour kit (light) Superdrug £6.49

6. L'oreal Paris GlamShine Stain Splash (Princess) Boots- £7.99

Ohh and ...I do have some lashes on...first time in about 4 months and they didn't last that long..they annoy me so much!

Have any of you tried the BB cream too? What do you think?
