Pay Day Haul

Hi Guys
I got paid during the week and in typical Lynn Jo fashion spent way too much money on things I don’t really think I needed.

I thought I would share my purchases with you. I only have intentions to post reviews of two of these so if you want to see anymore please do let me know!

As you can see I got some essentials, deodorant and dry shampoo but I also got a brush as the brush I was using was definitely more suited to my longer length hair than the shorter length I am rocking now.
I also got a 3 step system from Clinique to try as I wasn’t quite happy with my skin care anymore. I always use products for spot prone skin but the consultant said I should be using something more for oily skin which I am now trying. I will post a review on this in a number of weeks. I got a free gift of eye make up remover and mascara when I bought these.
I was starting to run out of concealer so I bought a Natural Collection green tinted concealer to try cancel out any redness in my skin and also a Revlon concealer in fair to conceal under my eyes and also to give a highlight effect.
I bought a Soap and Glory bronzer and highlighter in place of not being able to get a contour palette here. I am enjoying these as they give a very natural contour effect which is more suited to work. I also got a powder brush to apply my highlighter.
The final product I got was Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Browas I have been dying to try it out. I got a brush to us with it also. This is a product I have been lusting after for a long time and I will post on it during the week.
Have a great week guys!

My Favourite Setting Powder

*The product mentioned in this post was supplied by Escentual*



 A long time ago I started a wonderful partnership with a company called Escentual. A girl called Emma who worked for Escentual would often send me new products to try. As a make up loving girl this was my dream. I LOVE seeing Emma’s name pop up in my inbox knowing I am about to get a lovely treat.

One treat Emma sent me however has stuck with me for the longest time. Whilst I have adored all the products I have been sent, there have been none that I have used constantly or for more than a few weeks.

That was until I received the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder. I was nervous about using this product at first and I think the main reason I gave it a try was my MAC setting powder was running low and I wanted to make it last so I thought I would use this new powder on alternate days. 

Now I use it daily and would not dream of using any other powder.

For those who don’t know Dermablend is a range of products aimed at those with skin imperfections, something I have made no secret of having. Whilst the powder is recommended for use with the Dermablend foundation Escentual and I agree that it can be used with any foundation and still received the desired effect.

What effect is that you might ask. Well first off it has a matte finish. Ideal when you have a nice shine to your skin as I do. 

The powder is translucent meaning it doesn’t change the colour of your foundation, so you can use it no matter what colour you are wearing.

It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, something I am always fearful of with new make up.

It lasts, like ages. Both in the tub AND on your face. I sometimes forget to take my make up off before the gym, afterwards when my eyeliner is down my face my base still looks flawless. That and the pot has lasted me months and I am only half way through, and yes I use it EVERYDAY.

If you are in the market for a new setting powder I would definitely give Escentual a look and try it out. Especially with the (hopefully) warmer weather coming in if you want a light, natural looking, shine free setting powder.


There I am wearing the product itself. I’ve had some horrible spots on my chin for months which you can’t even see with the coverage the product provides.
