So I went onto the website and ordered two samples.
<< China Doll
I have very pale skin so if I don't get the right colour it can leave me looking a bit too dark or sometimes even orange. The samples were only £1.29 each, I ordered then on Thursday and they were here by this morning (Saturday).
I tried the China Doll shade first. I put this on the left half of my face. I loved it straight away. The way it went on over my face, how light it was, the brilliant coverage... everything! I next tried the Blondie shade on the right half of my face. The two colours are very similar, you can hardly tell that I am wearing two different shades of foundation. However, I think the Blondie one is just slightly too dark for me (maybe more suitable for evening wear) and the China Doll shade matches my natural skin colour better. I love it! It's excellent.
I haven't been wearing foundation everyday this week as I have had some days off sick so my skin has cleared up lovely! So I hope this stuff doesn't mess up my skin. My cheeks do feel a tiny bit itchy, but it's bearable. I put the foundation on at around 4PM so I will take it off in a few hours. Then I will wear the foundation at work tomorrow as it's only a four and a half hour shift and hopefully the itching doesn't continue as this foundation really is great!
I was meant to be working all day today but I really couldn't face it. This illness has left me feeling so tired and worn-out even though I have been having decent amounts of sleep. I just have no energy!! My whole chest aches and I can't stop sneezing. This sucks so much!!
I have a new best friend. It's this thing:
Seriously, it is AMAZING.
I rediscovered my tube of Savlon as I was having a clear out of all my make up and beauty products and started using it. If I get a spot I whack on a bit of Savlon and it clears up in no time. Get a cut, put on some Savlon and it disappears quickly. Dry lips - Savlon. Dry hands - Savlon. And as I have this stupid cold my nose was looking really red and sore last night so I put some Savlon on my nose and this morning the redness was pretty much gone! Ohh Savlon, what would I do without you?!
I have been looking on the Lily Lolo website after my amazing foundation discovery and have seen some eyeshadows that I wouldn't mind getting. I love experimenting with eyeshadows and these few colours look lovely:
I really want to try all of them! I think my favourite is the Pixie Sparkle. Or maybe it's the Green Opal. Ahh I'm not sure, I love all three!
I'm now going to eat some tomato soup and watch Casino Royale and feel sorry for myself. I want someone to come and look after me, but the boyfriend has gone off to visit some friends and I'm left here all alone for the weekend. Am I too old to say I want my Mummy?!
