Is the Missguided £1 Bikini A Real Bargain

Image
If you're an avid fast fashion buyer or you like to stay in the loop, you would have seen that Missguided released a £1 bikini: a simple black triangle shape bikini ranging from sizes 4-24. The offer is for a limited time only; releasing 1000s onto the website each day. For some, this might sound like heaven. A cheap bikini perfect for Summer: a great staple. It even beats the prices of Primark and other brands promising cheap affordable clothing.

But how much of a bargain is this bikini for the consumer and the producers, when the bikini is only £1. This brings the question, how much is it really costing to make it? Are they really making a profit or are they shortchanging the suppliers and the workers behind that £1 bikini? When we break the bikini down it's all about polyester, which is largely unsustainable and harms the planet massively.

Revlon Colourstay Foundation - Review

Hello everyone 

This week I will be reviewing a foundation that has been a popular favorite of people's from the drugstore it is the Revlon Colourstay foundation. I decided to try this as I heard so many people rave about this foundation so I decided to test it out for myself.

I bought the foundation for oily and combination skin as my skin currently is oily and can be dry at times. The foundation has a medium coverage but can be built up, it also has added shine targted to control oily skin. 

I have currently have a lot of spots they are mainly minor but can be covered with foundation, for a foundation with medium coverage this was pretty bad at covering my spots. It covered them but still managed to draw attention to them. 

The foundation does help to reduce shine but the main problem I have with this is how quick it dries, within seconds the foundation is dry meaning you have to apply and blend very quickly otherwise the foundation can look cakey. 

The foundation claims to be 24 hour in my opinion it lasts for about 6 hours and then it goes cakey and does not look good at all. For me this doesn't sit right on the skin it looks out of place and does not sink into my skin and give a natural finish. 

Overall I was not impressed with this foundation and to be honest I was pretty disappointed in the foundation. Next Wednesday I will be reviewing a concealer by Seventeen. 

Thanks for reading!
