I've always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with Benefit. Some of their products have absolutely wowed me beyond belief whereas others have left me feeling a little bit unimpressed, and after receiving ANOTHER Benefit sample in my last Birchbox, I obviously did a little eye roll.
I received one of the POREfessional Matte Rescue gels, which I'd never actually heard of before so I wanted to put it to the test but since I wasn't all that impressed with the original POREfessional primer, I wasn't expecting that much.
Rimmel is brand who absolutely killed it in the beauty stakes last year. They brought out so many amazing new releases and I was lucky enough to work with them towards the end of the year and be sent some of their pieces!
Around Christmas time, I was sent a little package of their most popular products to create a full look (barring your base) for the festive period but me being me with my awful immune system and heavy workload, I didn't get chance to party at all over Christmas and New Year! Some of these products are old favourites of mine anyway and the newbies I've tried and tested in the last couple of weeks and I wanted to share them with you as I think they're definitely some of the best Rimmel releases of 2016!
I've always had a love/hate relationship with the foundations I've used in the past and I would probably need like 5 pairs of hands to count how many different ones I've tried over the years, but I think I've found the one.
Happy New Year!
I hope you're all enjoying the first day of the New Year (instead of wishing you could crawl into a black hole from all the vodka you drank last night), and you're ready for the year ahead!
I've started my 2017 with the biggest can-do attitude which is totally cringy but totally what I need to make those little changes that I really want to make.
I can't even believe that I'm typing this but with 2017 just a sleep away, I thought I'd take a minute to reflect back on the year and all of it's ups and downs and start 2017 with a fresh start and clear mind.
I'm that walking cliché that takes each New Year as 'new year, new me' and in 2016 it was my mission to make that a reality!
I don't know why but everytime I put on this hat, I just want to belt out 'Hold Back The River' at the top of my lungs for everyone to hear in homage of my bae! (poor attempt at a pun, soz)
