MAC Dr Facilier cool liquid powder

New from MAC's Venomous Villains collection this ingenious powder feels like your applying it with a wet brush however it is dry once on the skin.
It comes in two colours called Truth and Light and Cajun.

Truth and light has a real sheer shimmer to it with a silver/pink pigment running through it.This colour looks amazing on fairer skin tones and for those who just want a fresh glow to their skin.The shimmer is soft enough to use all over the face and I would also dust it over the chest and shoulders too.

Cajun is a much deeper colour that reflects a more bronze/gold sheen.
This colour would be best suited to those with more olive skin tones and would also create beautiful highlights to darker skin tones.

 I would go for a denser fibre brush such as MAC #109 brush to ensure precision application.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Self Tan

Bronze Goddess self tan is the product for those people who want a subtle sun kissed tan without the obvious orange tan look that is often seen.
Its silky, lightweight and extremely moisturising so it wont cling to areas of dry or cracked skin such as the elbows or heels.
I apply this once for a gentle colour but find if I use it everyday as my regular body lotion for 3 days running I have a beautiful tan that looks completely natural.
There's no tell tale fake tan smell and so long as you wash your hands after no one will ever know you've even got it on!

OSIS+ Dust It Texture

My favourite hair product at the moment has to be Osis+ Dust It powder.
 Its an amazing handbag size, pepper pot style product that gives your hair natural volume at the roots whilst still allowing the rest of your hair to move without being weighed down.
 Just section an area of hair, sprinkle on the dust at the roots, gently massage in and watch your hair get bigger before your eyes!
Because of the handy size you can take it out with you to add volume when your hair is starting to look flat towards the end of the night.
 Have any of you used this products,Id love to know your thoughts.

Lucas' Pawpaw Ointment

I discovered this product whilst travelling around Australia.
Its a universal product that's great as a natural antiseptic on the skin for cuts and grazes as well as an amazing treatment for chapped lips or cracked skin.
 Made from fresh fermented Paw paw it smells delicious and instantly relieves and soothes the skin.
 I used it everyday on sunburn and dry lips and noticed every hot surfer in Australia using it as a barrier cream on areas where their wet suits rubbed!
