Empties #6: Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation,Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, Lush Cosmetics R&B Hair Moisturiser

More empties this month!





I've fiiiiiinally finished this foundation! I would only ever wear this for special occasions as I figured it was too 'fancy' for everyday. I got the shade BD60 and I got colour matched at a YSL counter in Debenhams on Oxford Street (I think?) I really liked this foundation for a period of time, but towards the end I wasn't a fan. I used this mostly during the weather change from winter - spring, where my skin was a little dryer. It reaaaaally clung to the dry patches and the shading just looked a little off when my skin was going through that dull phase. I really only loved this when my skin was 'good' and by good I mean, less blemishes, well hydrated and at the time of the month that didn't make my skin look like literal trash. So I'm kinda unsure about this foundation. I would love to repurchase it, but it's a bit of a risk as my skin rarely goes through the angel radiance phase.


I would give this a 3.5/5





Isn't it ironic that I prefer this drug store foundation to a fancy YSL one? This foundation claims to be medium - high coverage and 'light perfecting radiance'. I'm not too sure about the light perfecting radiance part as my skin is usually quite dull and discoloured so it takes a LOT to make it look radiant...But it has amazing coverage. It covers my discolouration, red marks, blemishes and dark circles so so well. I was so impressed as I've never tried and liked a Rimmel foundation before this one. I got the shade 303 True Nude which I think was possibly a shade too light for me. (Does anyone else hate it when make up brands and beauty bloggers refer to something as 'nude' when....in case you hadn't noticed...not everyone...has the same shade of nude....cause...there's this thing called...different races?!) ANYWAY - I would definitely repurchase this once I work my way through the rest of my spares.


I would give this a 4/5



By hair moisturiser, this basically means like a leave in conditioner. I used this when my hair was at the peak of it's digustingness. It was recovering from several bleached dip dye jobs, a long time trying to get the Jessica Rabbit shade of red, and then changing my mind and stripping it all. (I hate my past self)
Lush Cosmetics describes this as a rich treatment to restore your hair to it's natural beauty. It's meant to hydrate your hair and replenish it's general condition and you can apply this to wet or dry hair. I would apply this to damp hair after washing it, but only to the ends. You only need the smallest amount as this moisturiser is full of several oils and butters such as avocado, oats, coconut, jojoba and bay, so it's very intense! I loved how this made my hair feel - it was super nourishing and made it feel light weight and well looked after. It didn't go frizzy or static, and my ends didn't look so frazzled. The only thing I disliked about this was the smell - I'm not sure what ingredient in here that I disliked, but I just wasn't a fan! This tub also lasted me foreverrrrrrr, it was quite pricey when I bought it, but it lasted me so long that the price worked to be reasonable.


I would give this a 4/5

And that's all for today! Like I said, I've finished a lot of products lately, so if you're actually reading/ enjoying these posts, then lucky you!
