Benefit Cosmetics Air Patrol - a BB/SPF/Primer bonanza!



Benefit Cosmetics just seem to be the brand that keeps on giving when it comes to bringing out new innovative cosmetics. With two or three new launches per year they do not rest for striving for perfection. Best selling Mascara on the market? We can make it better. Best selling Primer on the market? We can do something different.

And that's what they've done with newcomer Air Patrol.  This new eyeshadow primer has 3 key selling points. It's main function to prime the eyelids ensuring your eyeshadow's longevity. It also has BB properties meaning that it nourishes and smooths out the skin tone thus enhancing any pigment that you put over it. Finally, it has an SPF of 20 so you know that the most delicate area of your face is protected every time you wear it. 

Pretty good eh? I'll admit I was initially skeptical of the tinted cream as it is much darker than my skin tone (as seen below) however it does blend out and is barely visible once applied. 

The memory foam tip is the oddest experience but makes absolute sense when you start using it. Your eyes are delicate and you want an applicator that isn't going to dig into them. Traditionally this has been a finger or brush but now you don't have to dirty them up! You also get zero wastage as a quick reverse click of the tube sucks the product back down. Handy, comfy, clean, and what's even better? It really works!

Here are 3 looks I've done recently all using my new Naked 3 Palette and all using Air Patrol. 

So here's how you can get yourself a wee bargain. House Of Fraser's twice yearly Beauty Confidential event is currently running until the 22nd Sept. The deal is that if you buy one of your favourite products and you buy one of theirs then you can get £10 off! So say you bought yourself this and any of the items in the offer (Benefit Rollerlash for example?) you get Air Patrol for almost half the price. Bargain! 

Of course another way to get the product completely free is to enter the Faeriwood Facebook competition to win one! All you need to do is Like and Share the page and you're entered. Easy. *UPDATE THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW ENDED*

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is

DIY fashion colour with BLEACH London

Im a bit naughty when it comes to my hair. I only get it cut roughly every 3 months and have a tendency to just let my colour fade until I can't take it anymore which, to be fair, is an improvement on my student days of cutting it myself twice a year and hoping for the best with harsh box dyes.  Praise the gods for the wonderful  Sharon  at  Paul Stafford Hairdressing  for converting me to the salon! What I love about her is her adventurousness with my colour and recently I've been rocking an amazing copper & pink combo but as with most all fashion colours it fades fast and hard and can be rather expensive to keep up.  But thanks to a combination of a £10 voucher with a Boots 3for2 offer on the new  BLEACH London  home hair care products what did I get? An awesome way to freshen up my colour without breaking the bank! So who are BLEACH? They're basically the new hip & trendy salon in London and are coming out with amazing on-trend looks such as pastel colours, dip d
