just came to say hello

sick puppy is sick. he's had an ulcer in his eye for a while, he's on his second dose of eye drops and antibiotics. poor boy! i'm going to have to rename my savings to 'vet bills' i think. he has to go back in two weeks time, so hopefully he'll be okay! he's come around a bit now but yesterday he was so sad, i even had to carry him to the vet. WAH.

as you might have guessed by now, i'm pretty obsessed with foundation and finding the 'perfect' one. i always think i have it, and then i get bored or enticed in by something else.. i'm awful. this was on offer in boots a few weeks ago so i picked it up for a few pounds! looks quite horrifically orange in the bottle, even though it's the lightest shade.. which i think is 51? anyway i can reveal that it's not orange at all once applied.. hurrah!

elf mineralised infused primer
bourjois healthy mix foundation
sleek flamingo blush
mac msf soft and gentle
mac chatterbox lipstick
mac brule/espresso eyeshadows
makeup forever smoky lash mascara

i had to use flash with these because there isn't any natural light anymore, and i can't seem to be able to remember to take photographs during the day.. but nevermind. you get the idea. this is the only high street/'drugstore' (HATE THAT WORD) foundation i own, so i didn't have any expectations AT ALL. i am really impressed though! my only squabble is that by the end of the day it makes my nose flaky, which i've left for your viewing pleasure.. attractive, i know. i must say though this is one of the few foundations i've tried which really benefits from a primer. i'm just using a cheap elf one at the moment, but without it the foundation just doesn't sit right. overall though, definitely impressed and would definitely recommend. i'm particularly impressed with how well it's doing in this heatwave we're having?! no sweaty face over here!

i might have jumped on the leopard print nails bandwagon and attempted my own. not bad for a first attempt.. kind of. my friend even thought they were the primark nail foils.. i think she's easily impressed though. still a little bit obsessed with the models own gold, it's the most beautiful colour!

  1. Awhhh your puppy! I have a puppy to, well i say puppy...he's 7 months now and he's a beast, but he's quite sick and a problem with his hip. Breaks my heart seeing him so sad!
    Hope yours gets well soon!
    I've tried the Bourgoeis foundation to, it was a little to dark for me, but loved the texture and smell of it.
