Beauty products I'm lusting over atm

There are a hella lotta beauty products out there that I just don't give two turtle doves about. I'm not very adventurous with my make-up, I tend to stick to what I know and play on the safe side.  For this reason I never used to buy foundation. Crazy, I know. It's one of the most essential products!? My problem is my skin. Its pale.... like really pale. I'm not too bothered about it. It just means that lots of foundations make me look a lil' bit orange... Think tangerine shade? Even products in the lightest shade can make me look like a walking, talking satsuma. But very recently I decided to give foundation one last go before coming to the conclusion of deciding never to look at one again, and for once it was a success.

Rimmel's match perfection foundation in the shade light porcelain is my life saver! Its the only foundation I've ever come across that works for my skin tone! If you can relate to my lil' rant then this is worth a shot!

But... my problems were far from solved because I would still LOVE to be able to find a gorgeous cream based highlighter that will work. Because, ya know... highlighter has always been another no, no for the same reasons as foundation was.
But, you guessed it! I managed to get my hands on the best and most pale cream based highlighter you ever did see.

*Enter 'Clinique chubby stick highlighter in the shade 01 hefty highlight'*
Clinique is a fab brand for anyone with sensitive skin, too (which, naturally, is another issue I have with my skin). Its such a dreamy product that feels so perfect on my skin and gets that strobe on the cheek bone just right.



  1. These products sound good!!! Have a good weekend.

  2. yes, LOVE the clinique chubby highlighter! i've been using it for ages now and wouldnt use another one!

    katie. xx

  3. Clinique are the very best! As a fellow pale person, I've found their Beyond Perfecting Foundation in shade 0.5 to be incredible for coverage and formula - but I only use it for special occasions!(However, I actually use Match Perfection as my go to 'work day' foundation, as there's no beating it on price). :)

    1. Oh wow, I might have to check that Clinique foundation out then xx

  4. Love that cleansing foam. It's so nice!
