L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Eva's Nude

Phew! That's a bit of a mouthful for a lipstick isn't it?

But lookit! Isn't it pretty. I have to be honest I had been completely bypassed the release of the L'Oreal Color Riche Exclusive collection last year. I've been on a bit of a perpetual spending ban for the last year and had been avoiding every make up counter I could so as to prevent frivolous spending. Obviously it hasn't worked 100% but it does mean a few things have skipped my awareness. 


Eva's Nude (Inspired by/Designed for Eva Longoria) was recommended to me by Laura at www.editor-in-chic.com. I had put out a request on Twitter for some recommendations and this was right up my alley! Described by them as a "Barely Gold" I'd put it as a nice coral nude with a hint of gold, dare I say rose gold? Slightly dark and daunting in bullet form but light and airy on the lips. It's super moist as well so, although you'll most likely have to reapply after lunch, you'll forget you're even wearing it the rest of the day. As seen at the bottom I'm wearing it with an otherwise bare face (mascara doesn't count!) and it doesn't look stupid at all! 
Thanks to NARS I instantly associate matte black packaging with a Luxe feeling so this coupled with the gold trim and celebrity associations really tricks you into believing you've spent way more than you have. 



The Color Riche Collection is available at £6.99 from all the usual retailers however they're currently on a 2 for £14 offer at Boots so you may as well treat yourself properly! 
Or you could forgo the extra lippy and spend £40 on skincare like I did. But that's a story for another day!

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Christmas Jumpers under a Tenner ft Tesco, Asda, Peacocks & KarmaClothing

So over the past few years, in keeping with the modern day obsession of all things simultaneously cute, ugly, and nostalgic, we have seen the comeback of Christmas jumpers.
Like most people however I haven't been able to join in the fun because I simply couldn't justify the cost. However this year I was determined and I have compiled a list of my favourite jumpers. My only stipulation? They're all under a tenner!

1. F&F Embellished Pull Me from Tesco £7: First & foremost I've only seen this 50% offer online so I'm not sure you'd get it in store. I love it because I'm obsessed with grey and I do like a good pun. The embellishment is totally on trend too so that's another box ticked! 2. F&F Nice Baubles from Tesco £6: again, I'm pretty sure this only meets the criteria online at 50% off but it's super cute and super cheap! And black. There's not enough black at Christmas in my opinion.  3. Black Rudolph from Karma Clothing £9.99: …

Battle of the pale bronzers: Benefit Hoola Lite vs Wet 'n Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Have I ever mentioned to you that I am pale?  Well of course I havementioned many times over the history of Faeriwood that I've been pigmentally challenged my whole life and - despite flirting with tanning every now and again -  I wholly embrace the pale. I have, however, always been a bronzing queen when it comes to my makeup. Whether I am using cream products or powders I always have felt healthier with a bit of a glow but I hate the orangey-ness of most bronzing products! It’s a catch-22 when deciding which one is more important.  For years I have been loyal to two products. Nars Multiple for a cream face (read here why I don’t believe in the term contouring for chubby cheeks) and Benefit Hoola for a powder face. Both are quite dark so they are used often but sparingly. This is why I was delighted when two new products designed for pale skin came on to the market.
