I recently took a trip to the Trafford Centre for some much needed retail therapy. I did my best to refrain from getting a little too spendy, and only made a couple of stops for some new beauty buys; one was at the MAC counter in Selfridges, the other was Superdrug.  View Post

As you may know from my Summer Hair post, I’ve recently lightened my hair. It’s been getting brassy recently, and the purple shampoo has been drying my hair out slightly.

A little while ago, I saw the advert for L’Oreal Casting Sunkiss Jelly. I assumed this would only work on blondes, but after hunting it down in Boots I was surprised to discover that there was a choice of 3 shades; Light Brown to Dark Blonde, Dark Blonde to Light Blonde, & Light Blonde to Very Light Blonde.

All hail the ultimate summer foundation! I shouldn’t be giving that away before I get down to the details, but I can’t help but love this product. L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation has been around for a good couple of years now, and I really wish I’d tried it sooner.

Summer always usually calls for a lighter, glowy foundation. Back when this one was released, I was using (also newly released at the time) Rimmel’s Wake Me Up Foundation, which I reviewed here. L’Oreal’s Lumi Magique offers a better shade range, and to be honest, I generally just like this one more.

Why? I’ll explain below…

Summer is the season that most of us get excited about; hello sunny hot weather! (Well as much as you can expect in the UK.) Therefore a warmer climate calls for a switch up of beauty products. Gone are the heavy face moisturisers, dark lip colours & endless pairs of tights; but instead? A few essentials that get me through the summer season.
