First Impressions: Estee Lauder Double Wear Light.

Hello My Lovelies
I'm a huge fan of the Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer- its by far my favourite concealer and is now my holy grail product. I've been meaning to try more from the brand and after getting testers of the Double Wear foundation and light- I decided to go for it when I saw it on offer in the Cosmetics Shop in Portsmouth.

The packaging is really slim and light weight which is perfect for slipping into my make up bag compared to the glass bottle of the double wear foundation but you have to be super careful when taking the lid off as I have had some of product end up in the lid-which is messy and annoying!

The actual product is runny but easy to apply-one application leaves the skin looking dewy and natural but can be easily built up by adding a little more. As you would expect from Estee Lauder products the light foundation is a quality product that doesn't streak and the longevity is impressive. I've been wearing this during the summer months but I feel this is one I'll be reaching for even as we start to hit the colder months and when I would normally be using my NARs or Laura Mercier.  

I have oily skin and I find that this product doesn't allow for much shine and sits nicely on my skin throughout the day. I prefer the light to the full coverage of the Double Wear foundation as I found that sat on my dry patches whilst the light is a good all rounder. I'll definitely be keeping this in my collection and replacing when it runs out.

Have you tried any of the foundations from Estee Lauder? Make sure you share your views with me on twitter @steaders83 or Instagram wonderfulworldblog.

Till next time,

Empties 21!

Hello My Lovelies
It's been a little while since I had an empties and this one is actually pretty small- I think it's because I'm trying to use my large stash (yes again!)

This month I've used up as you all know my favourite dry shampoo from CO-LAB the fruity scent is gorgeous and has been perfect during the summer months. What I love about CO-LAB is the fact it helps combat greasy roots but doesn't leave a white residue or constant whiff on your hair like some other brands do.

Next up is L'Oreal Fine Flowers face wipes- they had a funny fragrance and not one that I loved but the wipe was really damp and removed all of my make-up and as I always cleanse after the scent didn't linger for too long. I've had some of the other wipes from this range and I would definitely recommend and repurchase them if they were on offer.

Lastly is the new Puffy Eye Attack, under eye brightening eye mask from Soap and Glory. The mask was really easy to use and really cool and soothing under my eye- I've bought a couple of these and they were fab for travelling with. I'm going to buy another for after my flight to New York next month.

What have been your empties recently? Share them with me in the comments or over on twitter @staders83.

Till next time,

New In: Soap & Glory: She's a Natural Palette!

Hello My Lovelies

I love a good palette they are perfect for throwing in my bag for a trip away or when I'm at work and need to top my makeup up- they are so easy and convenient. Soap & Glory have the released one of the nicest and most usable palettes I've seen in a while.


The all in one natural look palette includes a light deflecting bronzer, a beautiful coral blush (perfect for the transition from day to night!) a smooth highlighter and three, yes three eye shadows in the shades CafĂ© Away, Culture Choc and Choccy.
The eye shadows are all really soft and bendable and the three colours allows for a  buildable look. My favourite eye shadow has to be choccy a brown shimmer which would be perfect for both work or a party night.


The palette from Soap & Glory is gorgeous on my pale skin tone- I always have issues finding a non muddy; orange bronzer, this one in the shade Bronze Moment blends to create the perfect sunkissed look!
Whilst I'm not a huge fan of cream highlighters this one is so subtle and easy to use that I may just well be converted.

I absolutely love the packaging and smile every time I see it in my bag or on my desk it really is the perfect size full of the bits and bobs you need to create a look for day or night! 

And....the best bit of all is its £12!!! You can pick yours up exclusively from Boots.


Do you love a good palette too? Let me know in the comments!!
