Loreal Collagen Micro-Pulse



Hey loves!

I'm twenty three now, almost twenty four and due to my desert dry skin I've noticed lines under my eyes and darker circles. (Gasp)
Naturally I've been on the hunt for a decent eye cream. The last one I tried was the Nivea DNAge Eye Cream, see my review here.

When I saw this my immediate thought was that's a gimmicky product. It's the Loreal Collagen Micro Pulse, two step system.
Step one is an eye cream and step two is a micro pulser you use after applying the cream.

I'll be honest I bought it because I was on sale and even though it screamed gimmick to me I was still intrigued.

The outcome, it did absolutely nothing and I'm over joyed I didn't pay full price for it. The cream itself is far too light and sinks in immediately still leaving my under eyes crying for moisture. It did nothing in the ways of brightening my dark circles or helping with the subtle lines that have appeared in the recent year. The vibrator did nothing either and actually stopped working all together within a week. I have nothing positive to say about this product, I've never been more disappointed in something. 

Loreal please discontinue this.

Please leave me recommendations for eye creams below, what do you use?

Who To Read

Hello loves!

I shared some of my favorite YouTubers earlier in the month and I thought why not showcase some of my favorite blogs to read as well.



Beky Lou - I've followed Beky for a long time and I love her posts. She has a fantastic mix of lifestyle, beauty & fashion and she just announced some exciting news over on her blog!



Violet Daffodils - Kate is a lovely human. Her posts are well thought out and she was the first person to start commenting on my posts which means a lot to me.



All Things Beautiful - I only recently started reading Jessies blog but she's so down to earth and I really enjoy her lifestyle posts and outfit posts. (She has a wicked sense of style)



Lua - Le-Happy - Lua was the first fashion blogger whose style I truly fell for. She can rock a grunge look like no other. On the opposite side of the spectrum her formal looks are outstanding. Her mixture of styles is what really intrigued me about her and I've been following her for a long time.


Who are your favorite bloggers?

TRENDING: White Ankle Boots

At the beginning of the month I wrote a post on the new & upcoming trends for SS17.
Well, turns out I missed one that I'm really excited for, white ankle boots!
Now, I love black. Yesterday, I honestly wore ALL BLACK down to my socks. Black boots are the easiest things to style as they go with everything and still look great.

The 80's may be on their way back but this is trend is stepping right out of the 60's.

I wanted to share my favorite white booties with you all!


TRENDING


Balenciaga - If you didn't notice most of the boots I featured here all have chunky heels and more rounded toes which I why I chose to add these Balenciaga ones. The sharp stiletto heel and pointed toe really give them an edge.

Marc Jacobs - I like that these are cream colored instead of your standard stark white.

Proenza Schouler - This pair of boots with the color blocking really give me some serious 60's vibes.

Acne Studios - The statement heel on these is what gives them their edge. It would definitely draw attention and give your outfit a little oopmh.

Those are some of my favorite boots, even though I can't afford them a girl can dream right?



Are you going to be rocking white boots this upcoming season?

MAC - Velvet Teddy (The Perfect Nude)




MAC's Velvet Teddy, one of the most popular and hyped lipsticks of all time. Thanks in part to Kylie Jenner and her 90's lip.

This had been on my to buy list for a long time before I finally caved in and purchased it.
On a lot of people the swatches I'd seen leaned much more towards the brown spectrum in terms of color but on me it leans very pink.

In terms of application this is the creamiest matte texture I've ever felt but that only lasts a few minutes then it dries down to an extremely matte finish and can leave the lips parched so I highly recommend applying a balm underneath.

This is quite perfectly my definition of a perfect nude. Great pigmentation (always expected from MAC) amazing lasting power and although not cheap, it's not as expensive as the likes of YSL and other luxury brands.

If you are still searching for your holy grail nude I highly recommend checking this out.

What's your favorite nude?
