I've had this foundation for a while now but never really reached out to it until a few days ago when I used it for my Eid Make Up Tutorial (watch here) and I fell in love with the finish, coverage and longevity.

I've never heard anything about Eve Lom, I have seen it in my local Space.NK but its not a stand that I would gravitate towards - I usually just walk past it and go to the usual NARS, Laura Mercier etc. My bestfriend told me about this when it was on sale on the Space.NK website for £12 reduced from a whooping £50 so I thought I had to buy it, test it and see why it had such a huge price tag. 

The product itself is thicker than your typical foundation, it comes in this gorgeous sleek frosted bottle and with a pump dispenser which is always a plus! I matched myself to the shade '12 Honey', the shade lower had more of a pinky undertone and I have more of a yellow complexion so this one was the better option for me. Also my neck is slightly darker than my face so I like to go a shade up in foundations so that it matches my body.

The coverage of this foundation had me surprised, its medium to build-able but you can also use a little bit so it works like a tinted moisturiser too. It blends in really well giving me a 'my skin but better' finish, I use a complexion sponge/beauty blender as I feel like its the best tool to reach out to when doing your base make up because it really pushes the product into your skin. I've worn this to work (8am-5pm) and I would say it started to slowly come off by 4pm which isn't too bad seeing as I've had it on since around 7am. I did have to powder my t-zone but again for me thats normal as I do get shiny in those areas throughout the day.

It definitely gives a radiant look to my very dull skin and I have received many compliments when I've worn this, however the one and only downside for me is that the formula is very sticky even after setting it with a powder. Sometimes my brushes will shed and when the bristles are on my face I personally find it such a pain to take off, it gets stuck due to the product being super tacky still. This is the only downfall to this foundation but other than that I have loved using this, it currently is still on offer for £12 on the Space.NK website but with only 3 shades left to purchase out of the 15 they have in total - which I think they need to expand on. You can purchase it directly from the website for £25, still saving you £25 and its cheaper than most high-end foundations.

Review: Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation

I'm going on holiday in a few months time and was in need of a small travel bag to put all my necessities in for when I'm on the plane. When I visited Paris 2 years ago naturally due to the horrible recycled air in the plane my skin felt stripped of its natural oils and super dry/dull so this time I was not going to risk that happening again, I will be putting my skincare favourites in this little bag to make sure my skin stays nice and moist during my journey. I will be doing a video soon on what I'll be taking with me on holiday - from skincare, make-up and clothes so stay tuned for that in the next few weeks.

I purchased this customised bag from eBay, it cost me less than £10 and it fits all the bits and bobs that I will 100% be using on the plane. I think anything that's customised with your name on it just adds a cute little touch, don't you think? There's 3 sizes to choose from - small, medium and large but I opted for size small because it fits perfectly into my side bag and so do the travel size containers I've bought to go inside. I love the font too it's chic and right up my street - for now its living on my desk until I'm ready to pack and fly out!
