My Review of e.l.f. Cosmetics Soft Glam Satin Foundation

e.l.f. Cosmetics Soft Glam Satin Foundation and e.l.f. Ultimate Blending Brush
e.l.f. Cosmetics Soft Glam Satin Foundation and e.l.f. Ultimate Blending Brush

I knew I was going to like this foundation because I have always been impressed by e.l.f.’s complexion products. In a nutshell, what I really love about it is that it has a lovely lightweight texture with a skincare feel, yet a little goes a long way with natural looking coverage.

Also, the finish is really nice. As promised, it is a satin finish with the perfect amount of sheen without it being overly shiny or glossy. It is great on texture, and it looks like real skin. I’ve been really enjoying how comfortable this is, and once applied, I kind of forget I’m wearing it which is great.

What are the shades like?

There are 36 shades to choose from and what’s great is that e.l.f. have a shade match guarantee so if you have any problems, you can return it. This is such a good selection for a drug store brand especially as the shades range from Fair all the way to Deep and Rich, across the Cool, Neutral and Warm undertones.

I am often a neutral shade when it comes to foundation, however, having played with a few different options from the e.l.f. Cosmetics Soft Glam Satin Foundation collection, I actually opted for a Cool shade, and it works really well on my skin tone.

What skin type is it good for?

So, the e.l.f. Cosmetics Soft Glam Satin Foundation claims to be suitable for dry, oily and combination skin. I’d say that you will particularly love it if you are on the drier side, and I believe it is very well suited to mature skins. Having said that, it isn’t overly shiny so I think oily skins will get on well with it too.

Do you need to powder it?

I have found that I can skip powder which is always my preference these days. If you are dry, I don’t think you will need to use powder. You may want to powder the t-zone if you are more on the oily side.

Is it easy to apply?

This applies and blends very easily. A small dot of product goes a long way and blends really nice over the skin. I love using it with the e.l.f. Ultimate Blending Brush. It has a nice big head, so it makes quick work of spreading and buffing this foundation into the skin.

It applies very smoothly and looks natural immediately.

What is the coverage like?

I’d say this is a good medium coverage that’s easy to build. One layer really evens out my skin tone, covers redness and pigmentation, and just makes my skin look really perfected. You can easily build it up in any areas you need it.

What is the finish like?

I love the finish of this foundation. It is definitely satin as described, and I think it’s not too glowy and not too matte. You could call it a bit of a goldilocks foundation!

It has a lovely natural looking radiance that gives the skin a really healthy look. It allows the light to catch nicely on the cheekbones and high points of the face. If you are oily, you may want to lightly powder the t-zone, but see how you get on.

What shade did I choose?

I have decided on shade 20 Light Cool and I think that’s my best match.

For my shade twins out there, my other matches are:

  • Sisley Paris Phyto Teint Perfection Foundation in 2N1 (£80)
  • Shiseido Revitalessence Skin Glow Foundation in 250 (349)
  • NARS Light Reflecting Foundation in Deauville (£41)
  • Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Care and Glow Foundation shade 115C (£39.50)

To see all the Babyblade shades and swatches, read: Victoria Beckham Beauty BabyBlade Microfine Brow Pencil Review & Swatches.

How to use it

Victoria Beckham Beauty recommend using the Crystal Clear shade for the most natural look. If you want a bolder look, then use the shade that matches your hair type. See above for shade information.

Comb FeatherFix through the brows and allow one minute for the formula to set the hairs into place.

For a laminated look with extra hold, brush slowly across the whole
brow and use the detailing brush to separate and lift brow hairs
straight upwards. Then use the back flat side of the brush to press hairs
against the skin.

My Review of Victoria Beckham Beauty FeatherFix

Victoria Beckham Beauty FeatherFix Brow Gel Taupe
Victoria Beckham Beauty FeatherFix Brow Gel Taupe

I do love a brow gel for a nice fluffy and full look and this one is pretty easy to use, especially if you prep the brow with a pencil first.

The comb is great for getting into the hairs, and it deposits a nice amount product. I really like the way you can use the flat side of the brush to press the hairs against the skin to get a bolder, more laminated look.

I have been using the Taupe shade over the Taupe Baby Blade pencil and they are a brilliant duo for soft and fluffy, natural looking brows.

It gives a very light hold to the hair, and if you like something a bit stiffer, this may not be for you. It is fairy fluid and more of a liquid than a gel texture, and if you have unruly brows, it may not be enough for you.

I am really loving the Taupe shade which gives me soft definition without looking too heavy.

It is fairly pricey at £32, but if you’re a VB Beauty fan, it won’t shock you, and I have to say, they are the most beautiful brow gels to look at. As always, the packaging has been nailed.

If you are looking for something a bit more affordable, I really like Boy Brow, For more info on that read: Glossier Boy Brow Review.

Texture Release on Fine 4c Natural hair

hihi everyone, I hope all is well! It’s now more than 1 month after my texture release and so now is a great time to share my thoughts on it! I have played around with my hair and had a few wash days too and I have a lot of thoughts to share!

My hair- I have very fine, low to medium density 4c hair. I’ve been natural for 13 years. This texture release would be the 1st time in 13 years I have ever done a chemical service and also the first time I have straightened my hair, done a silk press.

I got my TR done at Maison Style, full review here. One of the main reasons why I did the TR was that I wanted to try something different with my hair this year because I wanted to wear it out more. I wanted to be a heat trained/straight natural so that I can do that easily. After getting the TR and talking with Andree, I have decided not to go down this route. Why?

Because I have very fine hair, my hair is more prone to heat damage. I actually didn’t know this until Andree said at my app. Fine hair has fewer layers compared to coarse hair making it more fragile. I think I have some heat damage in the top area of my hair after the service because its straight and limp as compared to the rest of my hair. And this is with lots of heat protectant and a good routine prior to the TR. Whilst I don’t really wear my hair in its curly state, I still want healthier hair so becoming a straight natural and having lots of silk presses will cause a lot of damage even with a good moisture/protein balance routine.

I have low to medium density hair and this is disguised very well when my hair is in its natural coily state. It feels fuller and thicker. I prefer thicker hair so I was very surprised to see my hair on the lower density side after it was straightened. To be totally honest I did not like that. There’s nothing wrong with having this density, density is genetic however because I prefer a fuller head, I just didn’t like it. I made some clip ins to add extra body but I don’t want to rely on this every time I get my hair straightened. No clip ins in the pic.

My blowdried hair still appears fuller so if anything I can go down the route of a blow dried natural instead of getting silk presses. Blow drying is not nearly as damaging as a silk press in terms of heat damage. Still I would have to be careful on my very fine hair

In terms of the condition of my hair, my hair feels so soft and the curls are more elongated. I don’t have as much shrinkage as before so it makes washing my hair just a little bit quicker. I do like the TR for this.

If you have fine low density 4c hair just manage your expectations of a TR, especially if you haven’t seen your hair silky straight before. I say this because almost 98% of the videos I watched were on 4c coarse high density hair so of course my image of what I thought my hair would look like was a bit skewed especially since I had also never seen my hair straight after I went natural. What about my relaxed days? Well there was only ever 1 time I was able to get my hair proper silky straight because this person actually knew what they were doing lol, all other times my hair was still slightly puffy and honestly my hair was more in braids than relaxed and out. My silky straight relaxed hair was also on the thinner side infact my silky straight natural hair is actually a bit ‘thicker’.

Will I get a texture release again? No. Because the main reason why I wanted one was to aid my straight natural journey and since my hair cant tolerate that much heat frequently, there’s no need for it. Whilst I’m loving the relaxed curl pattern and the condition of my hair, its just not enough to justify the service. Will I change my mind later? who knows

Will I recommend it? YES. If you have coarse high density hair, you will probably love it and benefit from it more

I don’t regret getting the TR, I’m so happy I’m finally trying something different with my hair and taking much better care of it! I will have my 1 month wash day post TR up soon! I’m ending my hair challenge of no braids or wigs as I’m planning to get braids soon for the summer as an actual protective style lol. I’ve had my hair out for the last 6 months and need a mini break. Over the last 6 months too, I have worn wigs for a total of 1 week spread over many days. I’m really proud of myself for it! I don’t remember a time I’ve had my own hair out for this long! and taking proper care of it too.

I really hope you find this post helpful. If you are thinking of getting a TR, make sure you read up on it as much as possible whilst watching as many videos as you can. Try and watch vids of people with the same density & texture as yours, it will help you manage expectations. If you have hair like mine, there isnt that many videos for us fortunately lol so hopefully my posts on TR help

take care

Hydrating toners for Combination Skin

Hihi everyone, I hope all is well. Today we are talking toners! If you are looking for a new toner to try, I hope you find this post helpful

Toners/waters/essences are they really necessary? Afterall, if serums are most important and you have cleansed properly, do you really need this step? The answer is NO. Toners, essences etc are completely optional but its a great way to layer your skincare and build hydration for all skin types

There’s so many types of toners available but in this post I’m talking about hydrating toners only. There are no acids in here( another post). These types of toners can be paired with any ingredients and great for all skintypes and concerns. These are my fav hydrating toners I have used and love

Garnier Rose Toner This is a great budget friendly toner from Boots and did you know its an exact dupe for the Pixi Rose Tonic? Ive used both, love both and they both work the same. They are very gentle and soothing on the skin and doesn’t dry it out.

Artistry Skin Nutrition™ Hydrating Smoothing Toner this was a surprising toner for me. my SIL bought this for me to try and I really liked it. It’s packed with hydrating, soothing ingredients and even some fermented ingredients. It helps to hydrate and repair the skin and also pairs well with other actives.

CosRX Full Propolis Toner– I got this off Stylevana because I was looking to try a range of k beauty toners. This is a really popular one and I can see why its loved. Its a nice hydrating toner and its ‘thick’ enough to dispense into the palms and pat into the skin. I had no irritation with it

Fresh Antioxdiant Black Tea Essence – this baby right here is worth the pounds! She’s not cheap that’s why I also have a k-beauty dupe for you! The Kaine kombu balancing ampoule toner is very similar to the Fresh one! Its not as hydrating nor does it leave my skin as glowy BUT I really like it too. both of these toners are packed with antioxidants, hydrating and repair ingredients to help heal & nourish the skin

Next I will do a round up of my fav acid based toners! I used to LOVE these and tried a lot of them!

If you think you need a little bit more hydration in your routine, try adding a hydrating toner layer before your serum, day & night and see if that helps! I have normal to combo skin which turns more oily in the warm weather and using a hydrating toner is a good way of ensuring my skin stays hydrated through the day/night. These can also be layered on top of acid based toners( acid first) and its a great way to ease yourself into acid toners too actually

I hope this helps and catch you later in my next post!

Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan Review

Let me introduce you to one of my best discoveries of 2024, the Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan. As someone who is whiter than my windowsills, with fantasies of being a bronzed goddess, self-tan is an essential part of my life. Here’s why I’m obsessed with Gatineau’s Golden Glow.

What is Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan?

About Gatineau

Gatineau is such a beautiful French skincare brand that started in Paris 90 years ago by a visionary beauty therapist Madame Jeanne Gatineau. She worked with dermatologists and biochemists to create a line of professional-quality skincare with powerful formulations combining natural ingredients with cutting-edge biotechnology.

It was one of the first luxury skincare brands I ever tried, and I’ll never forget the first time I used their game-changing Gommage which was like nothing I had ever tried. It is still an icon in the beauty industry years later. Gatineau was in fact the first brand to create an exfoliator. If you haven’t tried the Radiance Enhancing Gommage, you must!

The Importance of Skincare in Gradual Tanning

The Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan skincare formula completely eradicates the risk of mistakes because it is so easy to apply and blend over the skin. The formula delivers a completely streak-free finish, and the skincare ingredients keep the skin hydrated so that the tan never goes patchy.

My Review of Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan

Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan 400ml pump bottle

Like I said at the top, this is one of my best beauty discoveries of 2024, if not longer. If you love a bronzy glow, I think you will absolutely love this.

I am a self-confessed self-tan addict and I have been tanning for decades. I started when I was at university and just never stopped. For me it quickly became a year-round essential element of my beauty routine, and I am genuinely a happier person with a fresh layer of tan. In fact, I often say if self-tan was no longer available, I’d be a lot less happy!

I have been fake tanning for years, but I still make mistakes. Not with this! I haven’t had any hand or feet disasters since I’ve been using it. It literally provides the most flawless and seamless blend.

The Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan is an absolute joy to use because it is so easy. You simply use it like you use your body lotion. I put it on as soon as I get out of the shower, and I use it top to bottom covering my whole body in under a couple of minutes. I apply it to my hands and feet, knees, elbows (everywhere!) just like my moisturiser and it sinks in super-fast, and I can get dressed pretty much straight away.

I simply make sure that I wash my palms and in between my fingers with hand soap and I’m all set. The tan starts to develop after a few hours and if I use it at night, I wake up with a gorgeous golden glow. When I use it in the morning, the glow gradually intensifies as the day goes on. It’s such a good feeling.

When I start from scratch (totally scrubbed off and white) after 2 or 3 days I am where I want to be. Although, to be completely transparent, I haven’t really had to start from scratch since I have been using this because it fades so nicely. As a serial fake tanner, it really is all about the fade for me.

Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan texture
Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan texture

In terms of the texture, I have to say, it is dreamy. It has a light yet super hydrating gel-cream consistency that melts into the skin with almost a water-infusion feel. It’s blends over the skin so effortlessly.

And it smells so good! It has the most beautiful soft fragrance, and it never has the DHA turning moment (aka the biscuit) that you get with pretty much all self-tans.

Also, the colour never transfers (I tested this on plain white pyjamas!), so you don’t need to worry about stained bed sheets or clothes.
