Summer Face

With summer just a couple of weeks away, I wanted to try out some new products for my face that wouldn't hide away my complexion. So off to Boots I went with my money and saw that Revlon were having a 3 for 2 offer (I also got a nail varnish but isn't relevant to this post). 



Hearing such good things about BB Creams, I decided to try the Revlon Photoready BB Cream in 010 Light Pale which was the lightest colour that they had. With SPF 30 built in, it's good for the summer sun (if we get any in the UK!) and leaves a really light coverage which is just enough to cover the redness in my skin but also make me look naturally even toned. I really see the hype over BB Creams, they are genuinely great products, and I can see myself using this Revlon one as a holy grail item haha.
It wasn't too badly priced either, it was £9.99 which I think is quite reasonable seeing the quality of the finish, it fares well against the higher end products.


I also wanted to try out a new mascara as I've been using MaxFactor's 2000 Calorie mascara for a good few years. The Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara (wow what a mouthfull!) seemed to have some good reviews online so I thought I'd give it a go. I love the smell, weird thing to comment on but it doesn't have that gross plastic smell that other mascaras and the brush is so big so I kinda have to be careful not to completely cover my eyelid with mascara haha, I think it's a good mascara and really covers my lashes well. Also £9.99 a tad more on the expensive side for a mascara but I like it so I think it's worth it. 

This past week has gone by so quickly! I had my spanish speaking exam on Monday which I am trying not to think about. People think that just because I am half-venezuelan and have been speaking spanish since I was little, I will instantly be amazing and don't have the right to be nervous like everyone else, but I do get nervous, I feel like there's more pressure on me to be better which makes me so much more nervous! argh! Plus it's not like I'd know how to talk about some of the topics e.g Nuclear Energy, in English nevermind Spanish. 
I have also discovered my enabling abilities. I am so good at making other people spend their money haha, better theirs than mine ey!

How has your week been?
