Laurens Way Solution 60 Rapid Tan Mousse Review

Laurens Way Solution 60 Review

LW Solution 60 is the newest fake tan offering from Lauren Goodgers range of beauty and tanning products, Laurens Way. It is a rapid tan that develops in 1-3 hours.

I have tried out so many tanning products over the years, but a rapid tan was new to me. I love the fact that you don't have to leave this on overnight and that the length of time that you leave it on will determine the intensity of the tan. 

A Mousse is my favourite type of fake tan, I find it blends easier than a cream. LW Rapid tan does go on nice and evenly and dries really quickly. As you apply it leaves a guide colour so you can see any bits you might have missed.

I left the tan on for 2 hours, and it left me with a nice light tan. I found that even though I had washed it off, the tan was deeper after 6 hours. There were no streaks at all, but it did cling to my dry patches on my elbow quite badly. I made sure to exfoliate and moisturise them, but they ended up four shades darker than the rest of me.

I was left with the smell of fake tan for around a day - my 3 year old even commented that I smelled like cereal! But it did fade, and as regular fake tanners know that smell is quite unavoidable.

I was really pleased with the overall colour, a nice golden brown - no orange in sight. The tan lasted around 5 days before fading evenly.

I really recommend this tan. Its great for those who have little time to fake tan; It dries so quickly and can be washed off in an hour. 

Laurens Way Solution 60 can be bought from Laurens website here  for £19.95.

Mac Candy Yum Yum

Just a little post to show you my new favorite lipstick, MAC Candy Yum Yum. I bought this from Gatwick duty free on my way to Zante, I think it was around £12. 

It was the perfect lipstick colour for my holiday and I wore it loads while I was away. 

It is an extremely bright, blue toned pink and because Candy Yum Yum is such a bright colour, I like paring it with neutral eyes and strong brows.

It is a matte formula, and because of this it is very long lasting. We all know MAC does lipsticks better than anyone, and the formula is not drying at all, its just perfect.

 If you are looking for a new lipstick to add to your collection, MAC Candy Yum Yum is the one!

NOTD: Blue Lace Nails feat. ChiChi Madison Dress

Lace Nail Art

I recently went to a wedding and bought the stunning ChiChi Madison dress to wear. I had a Color Club polish in the exact same blue so decided to do my nails to match, and I think they turned out pretty well.

I bought cheap nail art brushes from eBay, so with them and a dotting tool I created the lace effect. It looks a lot more intricate than it actually is. My left hand took twice as long as my left, but turned out great too.

I had lots of comments on my nails with people asking where I had them done, or if they were nail wraps!
