It’s a Makeup Revolution Palette!

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa. I hope you are keeping safe and well.

Two weekends ago I actually got out of the house for a whole 2 hours! And, And, AND I went to another town! BUT in my defence I was going for my COVID-19 vaccination. Thank you scientists thank you NHS thank you Astrazenica. My second dose is at the end of May, and I can’t wait. Better days are coming.

After I had my jab Mark persuaded me to pop into Superdrug which was next door but one to the vaccine centre. I needed to pick up some paracetamol and while I was in there Mark treated me to a couple of products that I was after. One being a Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette, this is the Forever Flawless, Decadent palette.

I love the pretty marble effect packaging of this palette I think it’s plastic, but I believe it can be recycled afterwards.

This beautiful palette is full to the brim with 18 buttery soft eyeshadows, a mix of matte and shimmer shades in colours that will see me through Spring and Summer for sure.

 

The matte shades blend out beautifully and are buildable to the intensity you want for the look you are creating.

I think this palette is appropriate for any age too, and honestly will more than likely take me through to Autumn and Winter. It’s really a year-round eyeshadow palette in my opinion. Lots of copper and bronze, orange and deep brown, it’s really stunning. I really am so glad that I picked up a Makeup Revolution palette again. I haven’t purchased from the brand in ages, I have a mascara from Revolution as well, and I’ll review that here too in the near future. You can check out the Decadent Forever Flawless from Makeup Revolution at Superdrug HERE

Thank you for stopping by today, take care.

All About The Base. No7 Airbrush Away Primer and Foundation.

Hey there my lovelies! Welcome to my blog, this is Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

So I have been sharing my love of No7 skincare here on EAB, I thought that I’d share with you two more face products. This is the No7 Airbrush Away Primer and the Foundation.

I actually stopped wearing a primer underneath my foundation because by the end of the day I would have a breakout of spots on my cheek and sometimes my chin. This was down to, I think, that the primer was too heavy/thick for my skin. So I was pretty happy to get this No7 Airbrush Away primer in one of my Boots and No7 beauty boxes, I had already purchased the foundation previously. The primer is Hypo-allergenic and contains Hyaluronic acid spheres to give the skin that soft, blurred appearance to pores and fine lines. It also evens out the skin tone. the primer is white and creamy in appearance and feels so light when it’s applied, not thick and oily like other primers have felt before on my skin. This makes my skin look and feel smooth and almost fresh looking. Although I am showing this primer with its “bestie” I have used it with other foundations and it has worked perfectly with all of them. They all lasted for as long as I was wearing my makeup until I removed it later that day/evening, and not one spot/zit/breakout/blocked pores. This Airbrush Away primer by No7 has just become my new “hero” makeup product, something that will be on repeat order from Boots, for sure. You can find it HERE.

The Airbrush Away primer does have a “best friend” in the Airbrush Away Foundation. This really is rather gorgeous! It’s one of those foundations that gives you that perfect natural-looking skin, made up but not made to look made-up type of thing. It’s dispensed via a pipette-type delivery system. The product does need to be given a good shake before use. It’s very liquid and doesn’t sit on the back of the hand, I pop it onto my foundation brush then apply it to my face. I have found that it does apply better with a brush rather than a sponge, but as always, it’s just personal preference. I do love how my skin looks after applying this foundation, so smooth and healthy-looking. I did think it would be a matte coverage, but it’s just so light your own skin comes through. It’s buildable to the coverage you do want for yourself. Yes, I’m definitely a big fan. It looks like this Airbrush Away foundation is out of stock at the moment, but you can find many other beauties HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today, I’ll come back soon with some more of the similar.

Take care, stay safe…

Boots Glow Range.

Hello, my lovelies, I hope you are all safe and well, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I have been having a love affair with Boots own-brand products for quite a while now, including all things No7 too! I came across the Boots Glow range and of course, I just had to give it a go. I’ve got three products to share with you today.

I have the Boots Glow Cleansing Oil, Glow Brightening Mist, and the Gel Mask too. I especially love the pretty pink and white packaging with the branding in gold. Let me tell you my thoughts on the Cleansing Oil first.

At just £4.00 this is so lovely to use. Containing Olive fruit oil and Sunflower oil to help to cleanse the skin deep into the pores. It’s a pump-type delivery system and it does say to apply the cleansing oil to the skin with a cotton pad and sweep it over the face. I didn’t do that,  I added a couple of pumps of the oil to my hands and massage over my face, and then remove with a wet flannel or muslin cloth. I’ve been cleansing my face with all kinds of cleansers this way for years, and I won’t change now. I have loved how my skin feels after using this cleansing oil, so soft and clean and looks very glowing too. Some cheaper cleansing oils can leave a greasy film on the skin after removal, but this one didn’t do that, my face just feels clean afterward. I haven’t used it for makeup removal, I use it after I have taken off my makeup. I must say it does smell rather delicious too!

Next up is the beautifully cooling and hydrating Glow Brightening Mist. This contains Niacinamide which helps with the appearance of the skin and to help moisturise the skin too. I usually use it in my morning routine spritzed straight onto the skin after the cleansing oil. When I used it for the first time it was a bit of a shock to my system the spray was rather fierce, but do you know what I loved that! After I spray it onto my skin I press the product into my face, after it’s dried down I do have a lovely glowy face, ready for my day cream. I don’t have a moisturiser from this range right now, I shall be ordering one asap and I’ll get back to you.

Now lastly but not least-ly (lol) the Glow Gel Mask. Again containing Niacinamide, but also containing glycerin too, this gel mask is very moisturising and hydrating. So cooling when first applied too, really delicious. I applied it thickly to my skin after cleansing, sat in the bath for a half-hour or so, then removed it with a muslin cloth/flannel, it leaves my skin so soft, and hydrated and yes indeed very glowy too!

The Glow range of products at Boots is so inexpensive, between £4 and £5 is all that I’ve seen. I definitely want to add to my stash. If you would like to check out the range you can find it HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading today, stay safe. Sending lots of love.

Time To Get Back To It!

Hello my lovelies, I hope you are doing okay. Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I thought that it was about time I got back to my blog again. I haven’t actually posted here since November I think. Since then we’ve obviously had Christmas and New Year, I do hope you managed to have a lovely time over the festive period if you celebrated it. But I’m not going to go on and on about the virus, we all know what it’s doing to people’s lives don’t we? We are all missing people we love, everyone knows someone who has been affected by this disease, and there are 100,000 plus, families, who are grieving right now in the UK, and my thoughts are with them.

I am just going to get on and write a bit of a blog post. I had a wonderful box of skincare and makeup from Mark for Christmas, it’s a No7 one that I saw on the Boots website, he saw that I really liked it and was going to buy it myself, but he got it for me as one of my Christmas presents. This is the No7 The Star Of The Show beauty box.

Skincare Stars by No7 

The box is black with a black ribbon “handle” with a pretty golden heart embossed on the corner. It looks like a beautiful chocolate box that’s full of delicious dark chocolate!

Just look at the beauties inside this box! There are a couple of products that I’ve had before in the No7 beauty box, but I could really do with the backups. Here’s what’s inside.

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense ADVANCED Day Cream spf 15

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense ADVANCED Night Cream 

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense ADVANCED Eye Cream

No7 Protect and Perfect Lip Care

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense ADVANCED Serum Boost Sheet Mask

No7 Airbrush Away Primer

No7 Instant Results Nourishing Hydration Mask for Dry/Very Dry Skin

No7 Radiant Results Purifying Foaming Cleanser

No7 Laboratories Line Correcting Booster Serum 

No7 The Full 360 Mascara in Black

No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in shade Caramel Silk

I’ve noticed that the box is no longer available on the Boots website, but I shall be writing reviews on each individual product, so I hope you will keep a lookout for future posts.

Take care of yourselves, stay safe.

Lots of love, Teresa

No7 EARLY DEFENCE GLOW ACTIVATING SERUM and YOUTHFUL EYE SERUM

Hey there lovelies, welcome to my blog Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

My posts lately have all been very heavy with Boots/No7 products. I make no apologies at all for that. Anyone would think that I’m being paid to review them, but sadly not, I have purchased them myself. I thought I’d share some more today, why not? This is the No7 Early Defence Glow Activating serum and Youthful Eye Serum too.

Let me start with the Early Defence Glow Activating Serum. It can be used morning and night which is what I’ve been doing. It contains Matrixyl 3000+No7’s powerful anti-wrinkle peptide technology which helps to give the skin a more youthful appearance. Also, No7’s Double Defence Technology protects the skin from the environment.

Serums are designed to be used under a moisturiser, day or night cream, and I have been doing both in my morning and night time regimes. After cleansing and toning, I applied the serum to my face and down my neck. I used a couple of pea-sized amounts to cover the whole of my big face/neck. It felt quite silicone-y on application so I was quite concerned it would clog my pores but after using every day and night for the last few weeks it hasn’t clogged my pores, I have rather soft radiant looking skin with a bit of a glow too. It does say on the packaging you will get glowing after about a week, but to be honest, it has it’s taken longer on my skin, it doesn’t matter though, this serum is lovely. If you would like to try it yourself checkout Boots website HERE.

No7’s Youthful Eye Serum is designed to be used under your eye cream. It has a blend of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C along with soft focus spheres to instantly smooth and revitalise and brighten the eye area. With Vitamin A and anti-aging peptides, it works on my wrinkles making them look softened and it has also been helping my dark circles too. I’m really enjoying using these two gorgeous serums within my skincare regime right now. You can check out this eye serum HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading today, stay safe my lovelies.
