Lydia C.'s Beauty Product Reviews
Worth the price
Me and my mum and sister always like to pick up a new Chanel nail polish to share, the colour range is amazing and the consistency is lovely. The one thing I look for in a nail varnish is a good brush and this one is really nice! My one problem is that, even with a good topcoat, is does tend to chip quite a lot, otherwise it's an amazing nail varnish :)
I bought this as a exfoliant for my hands and feet because my skin gets a bit flaky in the heat when it's summer, I then realised it was super creamy and smooth and it is perfect for the rest of my body too! It is so moisturising and leaves your skin really soft. My one problem is that I kind of dislike the smell, but otherwise the product does the job very nicely!
This is my favourite product of all time from lush. It creates millions of bubbles and turns your bath water the prettiest pink. The smell is wonderful- like a sweet blackcurrant. Also, it lasts around 4/5 baths which is great if your saving money but you want to smell great! I always love to pair this with rock star soap as they make a beautiful pair. :)
I have three of these. No.44,104,119. The have a lovely smooth, non sticky consistency and I love them. The pigmentation is great and these have a gorgeous shimmery, soft finish. Plus, they have an amazing array of colours! I really recommend them, as much as I love mac glosses, they do tend to get a bit sticky after a while, but these stay in perfect condition. Well worth the price, I also love the pretty, classic packaging :)
I like these lipsticks because they are really moisturising. However this can cause them to look quite sheer. They don't really have a great staying power but once you have it on your lips it has a lovely buttery, shiny finish. Watch out though because they aren't as pigmented as they look in the bullet.
This is a fantastic product, I love nails inc polishes and when they came out with this I was so excited, I got it as a Christmas gift and I wear it all the time. It is totally worth the money. I think if you need a quick, arty fix on your nails that is simple but beautiful, this is the bomb. Whack a bit of the nails inc. caviar topcoat on top and you have got yourself a winner :)
This is my perfume that I wear pretty much everyday. It has floral, jasmine undertones and fresh orchid high notes. This is my all time favourite girly perfume and the bottle is just so cute!
Brilliant for beginners
When I first got into makeup, I wanted to try a mixture of high end shadows and drugstore, however I wasn't quite prepared to spend £11 on an eyeshadow from mac like I would now. I saw this on the airplane while I was traveling and I instantly thought 'that's a great price' and just bought it automatically. I love the colours in this palette they are so pigmented and last forever! I'm more of a colour person now, but I still use this palette everyday for school. My one downside is that the concealer is a slight bit waxy.
