Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream Review

Hey Everyone:)!
I'm going to be reviewing the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream, this is the first BB cream I've ever tried but I have researched what a true BB cream should be like. Firstly I like the packaging, small and compact, however the product comes out of the end so easily as you can see from the picture below.
It says it that it is 8 in 1 product, so from the back it says it gives you a radiant glow, I personally wouldn't go as fair as saying the glow is "radiant" however I do feel it brightens up my face, which I definitely look for in my skin products because my skin can be quite dull. It also says it compliments skin tone, but I know there aren't really that many colours to choose from however my colour is perfect for me which is lucky. I love the fact it has spf 30 in it, it is great for summer because it is so light on the skin. It doesn't claim to have high coverage, and it really doesn't, but if I use concealer I am usually fine. 

I personally don't find it that moisturising but I do have dry skin so prefer to use a moisturiser as well, however it is more moisturising than foundation. It doesn't last that long, but I think perfect for school, if you want more of a natural look, or it would be perfect for the beach! It doesn't break me out, which is good, not saying that it wouldn't break anyone else out but that's just me. 

Overall I am happy with this product and will wear it to school and other occasions where I want a more natural look! It costs £7.99 which I believe is cheap for a BB cream and I recommend to take advantage of the 3 for 2 offer at Boots at the moment on Maybelline!
Thanks for reading:!:)
If you have any questions on this post them below and I will get back to you:) 
Hope this has been helpful.

Birthday Haul!!

Heeyy guys! Sorry it has been so long since I have done a post but it was my birthday two days ago, and I thought I would love to do a birthday haul, this isn't bragging I just wanted to show those of you who want to see:)!
It was also really fun just taking pictures of everything, I hope you guys like everything, comment below telling me your favourite thing, it would mean the world!:)
This is a full picture:)! Can't really see anything but hey that's why there is more pictures below:)

So I think it must have been 3 for 2 on maybelline in Boots because I got:
A maybelline lipstick in Midnight Plum, this is actually coming off darker in the picture for some reason.
The maybelline BB cream, which I was desperate to try, I will have a full review on this soon btw!
Maybelline the Falsies Volume Express Waterproof Mascara, which I love, review on this too;)

A face mask from my sister, looking forward to using this as I have tried one of the Montague Jeunesse masks before and really liked it, it was the Mud Pack one, for a review on that click here

I got a black eyeliner from the body shop, this is good quality, not the best I have found but I like it a lot:)

This necklace is from Dorathy Perkins, and my mum said she got it in the sale, so it might still be there, but she only left on the original price which was £8.50 :) I LOVE THIS! I think it is perfect for summer, and I love the different textures on each triangle, and the pearls in between.

Two pairs of Simply Silver earrings, which you get in Debenhams, I particularly  like the front pair and the little bows on top :)! They were £10 each.

This is a charm from LINKS of London, it is orginally for a bracelet I believe but my grandparents bought it because I love giraffes and bought me a chain as well (which I did not include), so it hangs nicely on there. 

That's just an up close. He's so cute!

Just a random thing I thought I would add, is a pencil case from Paperchase...

Okay, I tried really hard to make this dress look nice on camera but it just wasn't happening, so this dress I love, it is made of a light chiffon fabric, and is super floaty. It is from Bershka and I assure you looks nicer in person:P

This cute crop top is from Republic and I believe was in the sale for £10 reduced from £18, my mum doesn't mind telling me if she bought something in the sale, I am just happy she got a bargain!;)

This top is from Primark I believe and was bought for me from my sister and I love it, I love the off-white creamy colour and the fact it has a high-low hemline.

This jumper is from Topshop, and I think it is great for British weather in that it is summery but is fairly warm as well, I love summer knits!

This summer jacket is from Monsoon, and I love how light it is and it goes with pretty much all my tops, I think it's really hard to find summer jackets and I'm so glad my mum found this one.

These cutie shorts are from Bershka, and I just love them, not much more to say tbh

I thought I would just add this in as it is from Evolution and is for hanging in your window and I think it looks pretty nice!!:)

Finally I thought I would show you my birthday cake!:D, which btw was home made by my sister, THANKYOU, it was yummy;)

Well thanks for reading everyone! and Thankyou to my family and friends for making my birthday special!<3
Lots of Love Gabby!xx

P.S I also got a chocolate orange, but that was already eaten to include in this post ;)

What Do You Think?Peplum Skirts.

Heey Everyone!!

I haven't done this for so long! I missed it so much and I have finally stopped my revising today so I thought, "heey, why don't I do a beauty post now";) just a quick update but this week I'm revising for my GCSE History  Mock, Science Mock and English Exam. - so a lot of work.

So I've heard that peplum skirts are coming in and I don't know how I feel about them yet. By the way I got inspired to do this post by DollyBowBow's Collective Haul.

I've decided that I'm not a big fan of patterned peplum skirts but I love the bright block colour ones, I can see them being a great must-have in spring/summer!

Emma Stone is rocking the colour blocking peplum skirts!

Olivia Wilde is going for the more classy look, which I'm not as keen on but it's still so glamourous

So What Do You Think?

Love Jade!X

Missed This So Much!

Top 5 everyday blushes!

Heyy Everyone!
We are back! I haven't done a post in so long, but I put one together today, and I decided to do my top 5 everyday blushes because blushes is one of my favourite make-up items so I thought they deserved a whole post! They are all highstreet or drugstore so great for everyone!

Group Picture:)

So the first one is from Bourjois Paris- 16 rose

This one is just perfect for the summer! It does have shimmer in it which some people may not want everyday but me personally don't mind in the warmer weather. Has anyone else noticed that Bourjois blushes smell amazing!?:)

Natural collection-Pink Cloud 
Natural Collection blushes are actually raved about, because they do some great dupes for higher brands, I think this blush is just so light and pretty, and when you apply it you don't to worry about going over the top because it isn't that pigmented, but that is actually a good thing in this case.

MUA- Shade 2
This is the cheapest of all the blushes here, but it still deserves it's place! 
This blush really does have great pigmentation however if you get the colour right this is the perfect pink!

Rimmel London- Summer Fever
What is so great about this blush is that it has 3 different shades, so you can mix and match, you can have each on their own, mixed together or if you want a matte look you can use just the lightest pink and mauve colour, because they don't have shimmer. 

Finally we have Maybelline Dream Touch Blush- Peach
I had to put a cream blush in here because I love them so much, they give you a more dewy look, and last all day! I picked this one because Maybelline is my favourite brand of cream blush!<3

Hope you liked this post!
Don't forget to comment and follow!
Lot's of love Gabby xx
