Diorific - Charm


I've never owned a piece of Dior Makeup, I've always just tended to steer towards Chanel, but I wanted a new high-end lipstick, and I was praying that my local Debenhams would still have some of the Diorific range in stock!

 Charm is the perfect matte shade, it's perfect for both everyday wear and for a glam look too, and it's deeper tones set it apart from the standard nude shades that you'd see me wearing everyday. The longevity of this is quite remarkable considering how creamy it feels on the lips, this will last around 4-5 hours, through drinking and eating too, and with such beautiful packaging, I certainly don't mind getting this out of my bag to reapply! 

This may be the first Dior piece in my collection, but it certainly won't be the last!

L'Oreal Haul


I recently needed a new foundation, so took a little trip to Boots, with the honest intention of just grabbing a foundation, however when I saw the 3 for 2, I knew that I could do with a new undereye concealer, and the highlight looked so interesting that I caved... oops!


Now we all know that I struggle with foundation shades, however True Match in 1.C Rose Ivory tends to be the closest I can get, I much prefer the new design bottle of this one! The one thing I do find is that after a long day it can tend to go a bit patchy if I'm not using a setting spray throughout the day, which is an issue when I've just run out - quick run! The Lumi Magique Concealer is every bloggers dream and worst nightmare, we all love rose gold packaging, but it's impossible to photograph thats for sure. This is is similar in design to YSL Touche Eclat, I personally only use this under the eye as I don't think that it has enough coverage for blemishes, however it's perfect for the under eye as it brightens the area so much! Now I had high hopes for the True Match Highlighter, I like that there are two shade variations for skin tones, I like that there's a mixture of shades in each product, and I even like the hidden surprise of the mirror and brush underneath, but that's where it stops. This doesn't blend, the second it touches your face it sticks, which is horrific when you don't realise until you've left the house and you have a streaky face. It's not a natural highlight at all, there is certainly on 'natural radiance' with this one, and take my advice - do not use the brush it comes with.

Overall, I wasn't overwhelmed by these products, the highlighter won't be used again, but the other two will stay in my collection!

Have you got any new recommendations for drug store products?
