Bourjois Paris Poudre De Riz De Java

2 comments

Real talk, I bought this because...LOOK AT THAT PACKAGING. It's too cute. It's so fancy, I feel so fancy. It's just too much for me. 

Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java is a loose face powder that is a reinvention of one of their most popular products from 1879.  The original Bourjois Java Rice Powder was designed to lighten the skin and leave it smooth and super silky-soft. It was insanely popular all over the world and in 1897 they sold around 2 million boxes worldwide.

Now we all know, I really love the packaging. It has the same label that was used back in 1897, which I love. It feels like a true classic. The product promises to “light up and smooth the complexion in one step”. It has a light texture and it smells absolutely gorgeous. It has a rose scent which is rare in a setting powder, usually they tend to be scentless. The formula seems to be a bit sparkly when it's in the pot, but on the face you can't really see any sparkle.


This powder definitely does brighten my skin. It's got quite a semi-matte finish that feels light and airy on the skin. It also keeps my foundation in place extremely well so I have started to use it as my go-to setting powder. I really do like this product but have read that it is unfortunately a limited edition for Bourjois' 150th Anniversary, which is sort of annoying because I do not ever want to part with this power. I suppose I'm going to have to buy loads of pots and keep them stored away so I can use it forever - maybe.

NYX Wonder Stick

3 comments

NYX have quickly become one of those brands that I have become absolutely obsessed with. Watching their makeup challenges over the last few weeks - especially Mykie's - Glam&Gore - videos (LOVE HER), it's so great to see how their products can be used and just shows how versatile makeup products can be. Recently I've been loving NYX's Wonder Stick, which is a highlight and contour stick for your face and body. 

This is one of those products that I have been telling everybody about. Anyone who will listen. The other night I kept whipping my Wonder Stick out and giving everyone little makeovers. That's how much I love this product. 

NYX's Wonder Stick is an all in one highlighting and contouring device. One side is the contouring product and the other is a hightlighter. It comes in four shades, neutral - which is a universal shade, light, medium and deep - I used the medium shade as I wanted something that would show up on both my pale skin and when I use fake tan. The shades do seem to run a little on the light side, so I am glad that I went for medium over light or neutral. 


This product is so, so easy to use. There's even a diagram on the outer box packaging that shows you how to use it. Basically you just draw on your face with the contouring stick - so where ever you want cheek bones or shadows, you just draw them on. Then use a brush to blend it all in. Same for the highlighter! It really is that simple, and it really is that effective. The only thing that you really need to know, is how to blend your makeup correctly. 

I loved the contouring stick, it is literally my favourite thing of all time (makeup wise). The texture is so light, the shade matches so well and it's buildable as well, which means I can make certain parts of my face darker if I want to. The highlighter isn't as fantastic but I've still been using it. My main issue with it is the way it feels on my face. It's kind of heavy and a bit sticky. Not only that but the colour isn't that much lighter than my actual skintone, so sometimes it just doesn't show up on my face. It's a bit of a weird one. 


Over all I'm going to give this a big thumbs up, if only for the absolutely brilliant contour side. I have become obsessed with contouring now that I have something that actually works brilliantly. It completely changes your face and I just love tricking people into believing that I actually have cheekbones. It's a great product to use if you are just getting started with contouring and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a convenient and cheap all in one contour product. 

I cannot express enough the love that I have for NYX, everything I have bought from them recently has just been incredible. They've really stepped their game up.

It would be fantastic if you could give me a quick subscribe on youtube as well whilst you're here! I'd really appreciate it x

Wednesday Vlog - Traffic Jam & Trafford Centre

Leave a Comment


I decided today to do a little vlog but as I don't have a proper vlogging camera I ended up using my phone - which may of been a mistake as the quality of this is shocking. I literally cannot win with cameras these days. Anyways sorry it's shakey and a bit slow, but I hope you enjoy it. It was fun to film, particularly the traffic jam section. I went to the Trafford Centre with my lil bro to get him some stuff for when he goes to Uni in September and it was a cuuuute day!

The Disney World Tag

Leave a Comment



I am super super super aware that the quality and exposure of this video changes a few minutes in, and I am aware of how annoying it is. The video started off absolutely fine and then my camera settings seemed to of changed mid-film and I didn't notice until editing. I've tried the best I could with the footage I've got and hope that you still find it watchable. No idea whatsoever what happened here.

Please subscribe, it would mean the absolute world to me! I am going to make sure I put up a video every week - probably on a Wednesday as that's my day off. 

Thanks,

Norbu Wishlist

Leave a Comment

So ladies and gentlemen, I've managed to get myself a job. And soon, with that job, I will actually have some money. Money that I can finally spend on myself! Money that I can use to get a house. The possibilities are endless. So in the spirit of money, and online shopping, I have turned to my absolute favourite shop ever, ever, ever - Norbu. Norbu stock mostly hippie/buddhist kind of items for your home and they also stock super cute boho accessories which are right up my street. Anyone who knows me, knows that I consider myself a bit of a messy hippie.

Life Updates & Instagram

I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself.

Hello lovelies! I hope you are all well. First things first, I'm here to once again apologise for the lack of blog posts. I'd be lying completely if I told you I've been busy...I haven't. Not really anyways. But I've been working super hard on my youtube channel and I've also been doing a few projects with my friends for weddings and stuff.

I finally have a job! I'm super excited and I feel so lucky to once again be employed. I cannot begin to tell you how awful these last few months have been. I've been so bored, and it's the worst thing in the world to be stuck with yourself for days on end, going over and over stuff in your head. Nobody wants to live inside their head, and I'm sad to say that that's where I have been. But hopefully now I can get out of my head and put all my efforts into my new job (which starts today by the way) and everything will slowly come together. I literally cannot wait to have some money again. 

As I said before I've been doing some side projects with my friend Katie. We have started our own wedding/events photography and videography business. If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that I have been spamming photographs on there from our recent shoot, and you'll also know how very, very proud I am of the work we have been doing. It's getting to that stage now where we are looking at studios and stuff as well. It's all very serious, very quickly, but I'm really loving it. 

This weekend I will be partying my little heart off by the seaside and I cannot wait. It'll be nice to reunite with my second family and get absolutely bladdered in celebration of things to come.
