Urban Decay Naked Skin Colour Correcting Fluid

Urban Decay Naked Skin Colour Correcting Fluid

I'm a little late with today's post; i had every intention of writing and scheduling it last night so it would be ready for the usual 11:30am Sunday upload but i ended up going out on a very spontaneous night out instead so it didn't happen. I don't really do a lot of colour correcting as whenever I've tried it in the past especially with the green correctors, i also end up looking a bit ill and nauseous.

However; since trying the Sleek Concealer Kit and the Studio 10 Concealer Kit, I've really grown to like using peach correctors for under my eyes so i decided to try the Urban Decay Naked Skin Colour Correcting Fluid in Peach.

I've been using the Urban Decay Naked Skin Colour Correcting Fluid for a few months now and it's become a firm staple in my make up routine. The product is very similar to a concealer with the tubed packaging and the doufat applicator; i actually much prefer this packaging rather than the pan forms I've been using previously as this is so much easier to apply.

I have the shade Peach which counteracts the purple tones under the eyes and neutralises the skin to give it more of an even tone. I apply it directly onto my dark circles, leave it for a few minutes to really sink into the skin and then i take a small beauty blender, (fingers work too) blend it out and you can instantly see a difference. Depending on your skin tone you could actually get away with using this alone but as I'm quite pale this leaves a peach tinge to my skin, so i apply concealer on top to cover that and it works brilliantly.

I really like this corrector; it's really creamy, it feels nice under the eye and it's doesn't leave my under eyes looking dry either. The pigmentation is excellent and it doesn't wear down or crease throughout the day, it actually lasts. At £17.50, they aren't the cheapest colour corrector and no doubt there is other cheaper alternatives out there but i really like this one and i would happily pay that amount for it because it works for me. I really want to try the Pink shade next as that works at brightening up the skin.

Have you tried the Urban Decay Naked Skin Colour Correcting Fluids?

January | Recently Read #13

I have read 5 books this month and i'm so proud of myself - i've really made a conscious effort to read more, even if it's just one chapter before i go to bed and it's really paid off. I've already completed a 1/4 of my Goodreads Challenge and i'm really hoping i keep this up throughout the year because not only will i smash my goodreads challenge but i will also (hopefully) read all the books in my TBR box!

5 Under-Rated Beauty Products

5 Under-Rated Beauty Products

As a make up collector hoarder, I've tried quite a lot of different make up products and whilst most are often featured on lots of blogs and get the love they deserve, there are some products that i think are really good but i feel don't get as much attention as they deserve and are very under-rated.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

I adore eyeliner; i wear it most days and feel unfinished if i don't. I think i can quite comfortably say that I'm pretty good at felt tip eyeliner, I've been applying it for so long that it's become second nature to me. Gel eyeliner, however is a completely different story but after watching a random make up tutorial on youtube and seeing the winged liner that was achieved using gel eyeliner, i decided to pick up the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner and master the art of gel eyeliner, once and for all.

Ill hold my hands up and say I'm rather lazy when it comes to skincare; i desire lovely, soft skin but i get bored really easy so i require a routine that is very minimal and requires very little effort. Just before Christmas my skin went really dry, it felt so horrible and almost like sandpaper so i decided to give myself a little kick up the bum and sort out my skincare - now, i a kind of have a basic routine that not only am i sticking to but has restore my skin back to its former smoothness.

Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler | The Easy Way to Get Big Curly Hair

I've actually owned the Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler for months - I'm talking about 8/9 months, however i was saving it for Halloween because i really wanted big curly hair so i never featured it. I'm a little bit miffed though because it's taken me so long to get round to reviewing it that i now just look like I've jumped onto the bandwagon when I've actually owned it for ages.

However if you want really big 80s 'afro' style curls, you need the Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler in your life.

I'm aware that this post is essentially pointless but I'm going to be a really bad blogger and review some products that you may not be able to buy anymore. I picked up a selection of Zoella's Gingerbread Range in the boxing day sales because they had some great reductions and i was generally intrigued to see what they were like - now, I've tried most things and i really need to report my findings because I'm actually pretty impressed. However, i am sorry because you probably won't be able to buy them.

2016 | Best of Beauty

These yearly favourites are one of my absolutely favourite posts to write and to read - we try and love so many different products throughout the year that it's a true testament to the products that actually make it into these posts! It actually took me a little while to really select which products i really felt where my favourites of the year. I've tried so many different products; some I've loved, liked and loathed but I've finally narrowed it down to what I'd considered my favourites of 2016.

I'm quite fickle when it comes to lip products - i own so many and i often choose my lip colour depending on what mood I'm in. However, every so often i discover a lip product that i fall head over heels for and i just can't get enough of. In this case, The Body Shop Matte Liquid Lip in Windsor Rose stole my heart.

Happy New Year | 2017 Goals and Resolutions

Happy New Year everyone! I woke up with the lovely news this morning that I'd won a giveaway on twitter from a very lovely blogger and it really made my morning. Can you believe it's now 2017? I don't know why but there is something about the New Year that always excites me, that feeling of a fresh start and a new leaf - now i don't believe in the whole 'New Year, New Me' palaver but i do feel like it gives inspiration, enthusiasm and a positive outlook on the year ahead.

So in true tradition to the New Year and Youralmostalice, I'm going to start off the New Year sharing with you my goals for 2017.
