Before I jump into this post I'm just going to note what my preference of scents are. Personally, I love a sweet smelling fragrance, anything with notes of fruit in it, I am all over! I'm not really a floral lover but some of my perfumes do have a slight undertone of floral, but I mean SLIGHT. If this sounds like your cup of tea, then carry on reading!

I'm just going to jump straight in with my ride or die fragrance - Lancome La Vie Est Vie. This is by far my favourite scent and I wear it every day. I have gone through numerous bottles of this fragrance to the point that people actually refer to it as 'my perfume'. Little disclaimer, I am TERRIBLE at describing scents so all the links will be listed so that you can check out the notes of each perfume. I have spoken about this perfume way too much both on my YouTube channel and blog posts, but I highly recommend you go to a department store and give this a sniff!

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess is the definition of summer. It is so coconutty and fresh it really does smell like a summer holiday. It is so gorgeous for this time of year, however it is a REALLY sweet smell so if that isn't for you I would probably steer away.

This perfume is an oldie but a goodie. I have had this perfume for near enough 5 years and to be honest, I keep it purely for memories. I used to be OBSESSED with this perfume in my late teens, especially in my school days. It's a super sweet scent, but a very wearable everyday fragrance. Ralph Lauren 2 was my favourite out of the collection and this was honestly my ride or die for years.

Moving on to my more luxurious scents. My original Jimmy Choo perfume is my go-to evening perfume. I feel so sexy when I wear this, and to be quite honest, more mature. My scent taste, as I mentioned, is really fruity and sweet, whereas this has a slight musk to it. The slight musk to this perfume makes it so much different to my other fragrances, and for me, it is definitely an evening smell.

Last but not least is the newest edition to my collection. Estee Lauder Modern Muse Nuit, unfortunately, is not out yet but it is already a firm favourite. Much like my Jimmy Choo perfume, this is a more musky, evening scent. This has a slight sweetness to it, which is different from most Estee Lauder perfumes as they are usually predominantly floral. When this releases in December, I highly recommend you give it a whirl!

That's it for my collection guys! Let me know what your favourite scents are, and what I need to have a look at next! I'm dieing to get my hands on the new Valentino perfume, so let me know if any of you have tried it!

Hope to see you soon!

Let's start with my first impressions. I honestly didn't know how to feel about this foundation. From first impressions, I thought it would be super handy for travel and also convenience. However, I also thought about the hygiene level of the sponge and the amount of product it actually contains.

The pros of this product. Again like I said, the convenience of the product is 100% a pro! It's so easy just to chuck in your handbag and hit the road. When applying this I also really loved the finish. I love a dewy looking foundation and in my opinion Estee Lauder doesn't particularly have a dewy foundation in their DoubleWear collection. This one is very different. It is a sheer foundation so it is absolutely perfect for the summer and those who don't wear piles of makeup. It also lives up to the radiant statement as it really does give you a healthy glow. With regards the sponge, I also really liked that it is removable which is super handy for hygiene purposes and also allows to use the product with a brush. 

The cons of this product. I did have a few cons with this product, the first being the coverage. For those who like the 'no makeup, makeup look' and have FLAWLESS skin, this is the foundation for you. However, I don't have the most perfect skin and the coverage for me simply just wasn't up to par. Also, the amount of product really isn't a lot considering the price point of £28. It claims that one twist of foundation should be able to cover the whole face, but for those who want to build this it just simply isn't the case. 

My final thoughts on this product are that it is an absolutely beautiful foundation, unfortunately it just isn't for me. If you love that fresh, radiant, barely there foundation this is most definatly the product for you. However, if you like that full coverage, high slay makeup, maybe just stick to the original DoubleWear.

Let me know if you've tried this and your thoughts!
