Weight scale

Weight is a troublesome issue no matter what end of the scale you are at. Whether it's being too thin or too heavy. While browsing through  BBC News I discovered this new measurement scale - Global Fat Scale - that has been developed. Researchers have developed the new scale to indicate where you weight is in relation to other countries worldwide and also to your own country.

Obviously it isn't going to be perfect but it's interesting nevertheless to see where you are in comparison.

My stats were as follows:

Obesity Index: 19 bmi
National: Below average (You have a lower BMI that 86% of females ages 15-29 in your country (Ireland))
Global: Below average (You have a lower BMI than 74% of females aged 15-29 in the world (Ireland))
Did you know? If everyone in the world have the same BMI as you, it would remove 56,566,271 tonnes from the total weight of the world's population.

So where are you on the scale?

Face Products!

I've voiced my recent disgust with House of Fraser, however yesterday I got a nice surprise that they had sent me an e-voucher so I had to spend it on make-up related items. Hopefully, it will arrive this time.

I've only ever tried MAC eyeshadow so this time I decided to order a foundation, pressed powder and concealer. Hopefully, I like them. I'll be providing a review as soon as I've given them a sufficient trial period.

I will also have a review, shortly, for Inglot's cream foundation.

L'oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Gel

I have a very love/hate relationship with this tan. I first purchased it approximately a year and a half ago and was very disappointed by it, however, I have started to use it again recently and really like the natural tan I get from it.
This is a self-tanning gel for face and body, which is one of the reasons I like it, its very easy to use for tanning your face.  Even when I use other tans on my body, I will use this on my face, as it blends easily and spreads easily across my face, like a cream.  It is very easy to see this as you apply it, which ensures no lines or missing spots.  However, it takes ages to dry.  Previously, I would apply this before I went to bed, however it took so long to dry that the tan would transfer and I would have very bad tan lines. Now, I put it on in the morning and it does take a few hours to dry but the tan is perfectly even. But that is the only downside - the drying time.

I will apply this two days consecutively to build up the colour I want and it will usually last approximately five days. However, if I want it to last longer I will reapply three days after the original application.
The tan comes in a squeezable tube so its very easily dispensed. Although, given that it is a quite liquid tan, it can be a little messy at times.
I haven't bought this in a while but I think it was approximately €15.  It is available in Boots and I've seen in it many pharmacies.

Would I buy this again? Yes.

It's been a week since I have used this and I won't be purchasing it again. It went a terrible orange colour after approximately two days and became very patchy, very quickly. I had a few events to attend and it didn't look pleasant. Will not be purchasing again.
