#25, why haven't we come a long way? It's been a year and a half since I started this bi-weekly series, and it's one that I've been really enjoying. I hope you guys also look forward to these every other Sunday - let me know if you're still enjoying them as much as I am! 

Although I have been known to use this as a primer in the past, that's not how I'm currently loving to apply it. This applied with the RT duo-fiber brush over foundation on the high points of my face is pure summer perfection. Because it's a cream bronzer, you can buff it in really nicely to create a super natural look. I'm in love all over again!

I love this entire duo fiber collection from RT (I'm actually tempted to buy another set - perhaps with my Boots points!) and this brush is probably my favourite of the lot. It's great for powder, blush and even cream products, including the gorgeous Bourjois bronzer mentioned above. 

Recognise this from a recent post? Well it so happens that I have found a magical use for this, and we have therefore become the best of friends. This is the all-in-one miracle product that I've been searching for for many years - it's not tacky or balmy like many other of its competitors - it sinks in a dream and clears up any pesky skin problems in a matter of hours. I have already added a full size tube to my basket!

When I bought this back in January I was devastated, as although the colour seemed to match in store (doesn't it always?) it was faaar too orange for my pasty winter skin. The foundation itself is a dream - it has lovely coverage and a 'brightening' factor that makes your skin look like it's glowing from the inside out. Luckily, the Spanish sun has blessed me with a tan, and this is now perfect (if not even slightly on the light side!) and I couldn't be happier about it!


  1. Hey Isobel! I remember trying the Benefit foundation about a year ago and at that time I wasn't into makeup so much as to have an opinion on it! If you say its that good it must be! Will try it out again! :-)


  2. The Bourjois bronzing primer sounds really cool. I do think that cream products lend a much more natural finish, I really want to give it a go!

  3. That bronzing mousse looks amazing! It will be more natural on the skin too, perfect for summer!
    If I find it in Greece, I'll buy it! :)


  4. The Bourjois bronzing primer looks perfect for giving your bronzer extra staying power! Lovely post :)

  5. I loved the finish of Hello Flawless but couldn't find a colour to match my pasty skin!

  6. Totally agree with your comments on the Hello Flawless foundation, it only matches my pasty skin when i'm wearing tan!
