The name of this beauty? The L’Oréal Nude Magique Cushion Dewy Glow Foundation (or L’Oréal True Match Lumi Cushion in the U.S.)! View Post

Read on if you’re curious how I got on with them! View Post

Looking for a good & affordable hand cream for on the go? The OPI Avojuice Skin Quenchers Hand & Body Lotion has been my latest handbag companion.
