PERFECT PHOTOGENIC PRIMER!!

Benefit, Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer!

I have never been into using primer. I love to use my Olay normal to dry skin Day Cream, on a daily basis as a base and that works well for me! After purchasing my first primer it has changed my Makeup life!!

The primer I am reviewing is the Benefit 'Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer' It retails for 35.50 euro!

REVIEW!
This is like a magnet for your skin! It creates a great base for your makeup. Work in sections, I would recommend doing one half of the face at a time, because it sets quickly, that is the one thing I dislike about this product! I feel that my makeup looks great with this Primer, very fresh and even! It makes my skin feel smooth and even! I have Spot-prone skin and it hasn't broken me out! Another point I'll add, I feel like this product isn't 100% hygienic, because your applying the product directly onto the face everytime, and I feel like the bacteria and germs will build up, and eventually cause a breakout, I hope not!

PACKAGING!!
This primer comes in what I would describe as a 'Pan stick' packaging, it is a retractable primer, and it's perfect for to throw in your bag, because it is so compact! The packaging design is fun and pretty!

DOES IT WORK?!
I think this Primer created a great base for my skin, and it really made the foundation last all day! I use L'Oreal True Match on a daily basis and I love it! It is a long wearing Foundation, but after my day I find some parts of my skin the Foundation has worn out, with using the Primer, it really helped with that!
My skin felt so smooth and soft!

I would buy again if the product cost less than 35.50 euro, I would like to try out more primers before branding this as a Holy Grail product! Even though I do love this primer overall!

PROS?!                                         Cons?!
Great packaging.                             Sets quickly!
Compact.                                        Not hygienic.
Skin feels soft/smooth.                                                                
Makeup DOES last all day!
Retractable!
Prolongs makeup wear!  




POP OF COLOUR PINK POLISH

Hi everyone! Today I am talking about the Rimmel 'I <3 Lasting Finish' Nail Polishes. I wanted to try them out for ages, my lovely friend gave me one as a present and I couldn't wait to try it out!

Colour: '300 POP YOUR PINK'

REVIEW?!
I love this Nail polish! The colour pay-off is amazing! You could get away with one coat, but I done two, just to see how buildable the product was! The colour is beautiful, it is a really bright pink colour, which really stands out! I got loads of people asking what was I wearing on my nails! It is so long lasting too!!

WHERE DO I BUY IT?
This Nail Polish is available at all Rimmel stands Worldwide. You can find them at Boots, and Superdrug especially for a bargain!

PRICE??
4.55 euro, so just under the 5 euro mark! Bargain!

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Looking at the name 'I <3 Lasting Finish' I was expecting a long wearing product.This product is so long lasting! It gave me at least a week of wear without using a topcoat! I am so impressed, the colour stayed great all week. It did start to chip at the top by the end of the first week, which is explainable. Overall I'm so impressed!

Great product! I would recommend you to try this out for yourself! x x x x

SLEEK SEXY HAIR!!

Hair is an important feature. You can really stand out from the crowd, hair colour, hairstyles it's an endless cycle. But that's all well and good, but the condition of your hair is so important. Whether you have straight or super curly hair. This is my way of making my hair look great, and I am not afraid to say it! I have worked hard to get my hair to the condition it is in now and I have tried a million products on the market!!
For anyone who is wondering, my hair is naturally curly and frizzy if I don't style it!

Before putting products into your hair, a tip to remember is to DRINK MORE WATER!! The difference in my hair when I started drinking 2 and a half litres of water a day for 4 weeks, and I still do! Fantastic!!

 HAIR AND NAILS SUPPLEMENTS!! These are a great way to kick start a healthy revive for your hair! Any brand will do, I have tested a few brands, from Holland and Barrett, and places like Tesco. I know for a fact Kim Kardashian uses 'Hairfinity' so I'm dying to try that out! I have heard great reviews about this product and it claims to strengthen, add shine and growth to your hair! Sounds amazing! It takes a few weeks to get the supplements into your system so be patient and you will see the results!

The products I have used for my hair are really the most helpful to make my hair sleek!
Garnier Ultimate Blends Sleek Restorer Shampoo and Conditioner, this stuff is AMAZING! I remember the first time I used it and my hair was glistening, so sleek and shiny, I fell in love INSTANTLY! It kept my hair looking smooth until I washed it again 3-4 days later!

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray, again AMAZING! This is a heat protection enriched with Keratin with helps smooth out your hair, this is a great heat protectant, it really protects my hair while adding a sleek shiny look to my hair. I like to add it to dry hair too as a finishing touch!!

HAIR MASKS! I have tried different brands of hair masks but my all time favourite has to be, BEE STRONG by Herbal Essences. THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZING!! I like to use a mask once a week. This particular mask really makes the hair look gorgeous, shiny, smooth sleek! It smells so good! I leave it in for ten minutes before washing it out, I like to use it after my regular shampoo and conditioner routine!!

Argan oil.. Oh my God, this stuff has to be my holy grail. The one I use is sold at the Penneys/Primark checkout for just 2 euro! Pick it up, honestly my hair is so smooth, silky and shiny after it! You only need a drop or two to work to the lengths of your hair. Do not put in your scalp area as it is oil and it will look oily, and we don't want that! I have tried other Argan Oils and didn't like them so I stick to this one always!!

That is all I have to say, just drink plenty of water, try out a hair supplement, try out this products and I promise you, you will NOT be disappointed! Hope you enjoyed this! Stay tuned for more!! x x x x

FLAWLESS GLOWING SKIN!!

I have literally tried every Foundation and BB cream on the market, ranging from brands like Essence to High End brands like Dior and Chanel. I don't mind spending the bit of extra money on Foundation because I believe your face is the most important canvas to makeup, and that with the right foundation you will look BEAUTIFUL!!

For the past few weeks I have been using the Garnier BB cream. I've had this BB cream a long time, but I have just started to use it again because it is warm where I am at the moment, and my regular foundation is too heavy for this weather! I am a huge fan of Garnier products, definitely try their products out! I have received so many compliments when I used this product, and it has boosted my confidence big time!

This BB cream is just beautiful. It has a very light and runny consistency, so beware of that when pouring the product out. I didn't know that and let's just say it was messy, and my lovely new white jeans got a surprise..

I would say this product is a good medium coverage, very buildable yet it looks natural and not cakey. It's the best coverage BB cream out there yet it shows your skin at the same time which I like. It is also long-wearing, I don't use powder personally, but if I did, it would be amazing! It has not broken me out at all!!

I chose the colour Medium. Which is so dark, I get away with it now because I am just home from the beautiful Fuertventura and back to the lovely weather Dublin has to offer *sarcasm*. I would definitely choose the colour Light to start off with and then apply bronzer if you need to add colour. I wish that there was more colours to choose from it's a shame since it is a great product! Also to add it would be great if there was a pump, it is in a tube which is still good, but with a pump you would have more control of the product!

This BB cream is available in chemists such as Boots, and supermarkets worldwide such as Tesco and is priced at  €9.33.  Prices may vary!

Pros
Great coverage.
Long-wearing.
Makes the skin look beautiful and healthy.
Causes no breakouts.
Feels light on the skin.
I could go on forever!!

Cons
Only comes in 3 colours.
Not a lot of control with pouring product very messy!
Excess product on the tube very messy!
Can leak if not closed properly, trust me, absolute HELL!

Bright Beautiful Blush!!

I have never been a fan of Blushers, I am more of a Bronzer girl. But this new Cream Blush in the colour 410, from Make For Ever, really made me change my mind!

This is a beautiful cream Coral Blush. I would exactly describe it as being a medium Coral colour, quite an orange tone with a beautiful Satin finish with a warm undertone!

It glides beautifully onto the skin, easy to blend. A little goes a long way! I use my Expert Face Brush by Real Techniques to apply, it works the best for me!

This Blush available from Makeup For Ever branches worldwide is priced at  20, and well worth the money!

Pros
Great packaging, compact, easy to pop into handbag!
Comes with a mirror.
Glides on skin beautifully, creamy!
Lasts well throughout the day, perfect for summer!
Gorgeous colour.
Suits all skin tones.

Cons
This blush can do no wrong in my eyes. I can't fault it!  Even though I have used it around 7 times, I really consider this to be a Holy Grail product woohoooo!

JensBeautyBible: Welcome to my Blog!

Hello, welcome to my Blog!
 I have always been intrigued by the idea of blogging. What is it? What topics are people talking about? Over the years blogs have become hugely successful. You may think, well why am I starting so late into this trend right? Well I am a sixteen year old girl, with a huge passion for all things Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyle, and Music. These are the things that make me happy, which are important to me. I believe it is so important in life to find that one or more thing that you love and that you can turn to when you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, we all have been there! Personally I would love to create a name for myself on Social Media sites like, YouTube, by Blogging. How great would it be, to have people listen to what you say, and to follow your journey. I just love the whole concept of that! Of course you will get the little nasties along the way, commenting hate but I will discuss that later. Overall I hope you enjoy my Blog, where I will be discussing topics like, Beauty, Makeup, Skincare, Haircare, Outfit ideas, Advice and so much more!  x x x x
