I'd originally planned this to be one long post but then I realised it would be colossal... so - instalment one = my favourite foundation and blusher!
My favourite foundation (although it's not technically a foundation...) is one that hasn't been around for that long. Personally I love my skin to look not too matte and have a nice natural looking glow - or so that is the aim. Most of the time I tend to have pretty good skin too and I therefore like my coverage to be quite sheer and light, although I have found that this foundation can be buildable to some extent.
*Drum roll* I know by this point you are all dying to know the product that I am talking about, which is No7's Beautiful Skin BB Cream. I use the one for Normal/Dry skin in the colour Fair.
You can get it from Boots in stores or online for £12.95 which is quite a decent price in itself, but the price is even more scrumptious when you have your £5 off No7 voucher :)

This is available from Superdrug and from the Sleek website.
(When I was getting the link for the Sleek website I spotted on their homepage that for a limited time only in Superdrug stores they are selling palettes with three blushers in (cue a little squeal from me!) These are in
'Pink Sprint' which appears to have one fluorescent pink shade and two plummy looking colours,
'Sugar' which has a more muted darker pink shade, a shimmery looking brown toned blusher and a sort of muted coral-like colour,
'Lace' which contains a coral, a light shimmery looking beige and a light peachy shade,
'Pumpkin' which includes a very bright orange, a soft light pink and a rose goldish colour and finally
'Flame' which has a dark shimmery looking red, a very bright red and a more muted but shimmery brown/pink shade.
Head over to the Sleek website and have a look... see you in Superdrug!)
Hopefully you've enjoyed this post and I look forward to chatting to you again soon :)
P.s. went to Superdrug at Westfield Stratford yesterday and they didn't have the blush sets... very disappointed. The hunt continues!
