My Favourite Simple Products

Kind to Skin Vital Vitamin Day Cream- I love this cream! I think this is the perfect consistency- thin enough to sink in easily but thick enough to really give the skin moisture. I use this before I go in the shower, after I come out the shower and before I put my foundation on. The texture is really moicturising without being oily or leaving a sheen and it has made such a difference to the dry patches I get round my nose in the winter. This cream has also really helped with blemishes- since I started using it I have only had a few and theyve faded quickly without drying up horribly.

Eye Make-up Corrector Pen- I bought this on a bit of a whim because I thought it would be useful for liquid eyeliner mistakes and I was right- any slip ups are instantly removed with the soft damp tip of the pen. It needs to be wiped on a tissue or makeup remover wipe after every use (and sometimes during) I find its much easier to do that than try and remove a mistake with a wipe and end up removing all the eyeliner.

Cleansing Facial Wipes- These are so good for refreshing the skin in the morning if you cant be bothered to cleanse, and remove foundation so quickly and easily. I prefer wipes because I can really get into my lashes and remove all those layers of mascara but find some can be really drying and others leave an oily feeling. These Simple ones though I find perfect for my combination skin, I always use them before moisturising or exfoliating in the shower and they remove waterproof eyeliner etc so easily.

Fräulein3°8 - 20 Colours Concealer Palette

Fraulein 38 is a german brand that 'symbolizes ladies life-long beauty revolution', it has a great array of make up palettes- concealers, blushers and eyeshadows (review coming soon), as well as brush sets and nail art accessories at actually surprisingly great prices.

Looking through their products I was spoilt for choice but decided to first go for their concealer palettes, they have one with 15 colours which I saw on Gina's blog (her review here) but I went for the 20 colour palette as it included more corrector colours.

The palette is professional, thin and black, it is made from that slightly rubbery mac-esque plastic that can get a bit smudgey especially if youre using the concealer on your fingers but a bit of make up remover keeps it looking good as new. The palette came with some little plastic eye shadow applicators which Ive thrown away so there is a space below the concealers for a brush which is really handy. 

I love the choice of shades in this palette- there are two great highlighters, correctors, and concealer shades in a range of tones and colours. The light colours will do me when I havent tanned, the medium colours are great alone or can be mixed, and the dark colours are perfect to use as a bronzer or contour colour. I love taking a small amount of the darkest colour on a flat foundation brush or Real Techniques stippling brush and blending under my cheek bones and up to my temples. Because it's a cream it looks so natural and really adds depth and dimension to the face!
Of the corrector colours I havent yet found a use for the orange and black, but the pink/lilac I use to neutralise the blueish tones around my eyes if I havent slept properly and the green and yellow I use for blemishes and red areas. If you read my post here you'll know that I was looking for a new yellow corrector and this from Fraulein is a perfect replacement. 

This picture doesnt really do the coverage justice, it is far better than I expected- as this is a professional palette the formulas are very pigmented and the coverage is definitely buildable. My skin isn't perfect but this palette covers everything I want it to without being drying or flaky.

This palette definitely get the thumbs up from me and I would encourage anyone whos thinking about it to go ahead and order! Oh and did I mention it was only £11!?
I got mine from ebay, I cant find the seller at the moment, but theres a couple here for between £11 and £12.
