Benefit Big Easy - Review

So I know that a lot of people have probably reviewed this product already but I just wanted to give my opinion about the product.

I firstly would like to say that this is the first 'BB Cream' that I have ever used, I have always stuck to foundations not normally full coverage foundations but general foundations. I always thought that my skin was really bad and that anything other than a foundation coverage just wouldn't cut it. I have been experimenting a little bit more with different foundations recently and when I saw this product I just had to get it. Something about it really stood out to me. 
Something that scared me a little about this product was the shade I was matched too, normally I get light shades just because that's my skin tone. But I was matched to Medium 04 and to me always choosing a light foundation It scared me a little I thought I was matched to a very dark shade but its perfect so if you choose to buy this product don't panic. 
This product has proven to be amazing, I love the finish and the coverage. I have found something with this product that isn't usually an issue with foundations. But when I am in a rush and need to apply my make up very quickly I sometimes use my hands to blend my foundation in instead of a brush. I know bad beauty blogger. I thought the BB cream was bad and wasn't sitting right on my face, I kind of pushed it aside and stopped using it really. Then the other day I used it agian but this time I blending it in using a brush. Turns out I was wrong after all and I am now in love with this product. I can not wait until summer so I can use it more as its super light. 
you can buy this product here.

Please let me how you found this product. If you would like to see this product in use just leave me a comment and I will try to do that for you.

Cake Pops

So I have been wanting to make some of these for a while, but never really thought I could master the recipe. But it was a lot easier than I first thought.

Caster Sugar
Vanilla extract
Self raising flour

Mixing bowl
Cake Pop moulds

Ensure you preheat the oven to 180 degrees before you start.
Step one - you will need to mix together the sugar and the butter, then add the vanilla extract.
Step two - then add the eggs but between putting the two eggs in you will need to whisk between both eggs.
Step three - Then you will need to add the flour and the milk, ensure that you add the flour and milk in halves mix in the first half and then add the second.
Step four - When the batter is all mixed you can then start spooning the mixture into the moulds. I put enough mixture in to fill the bottom half of the cake pop mould.
Step five - Place top onto the mould and place into the oven, I put mine in for about 20-25 minutes.
Step six - I then removed from the over and flipped them all out onto a cooling rack after a couple of minutes of cooling in the mould.

I left the cake pops for about 10-15 minutes until they were completely cool.

I then started on the topping and decorations, I used white chocolate and milk chocolate as I found these easier to get hold of than candy melts. I melted the chocolate over a pan of boiling water, until smooth.

You will have to ensure that you dip the lolly pop stick into the chocolate and then place this into the cake pop about half way up to seal the bond between the cake and the stick. You can then do this to all of the cake pops and then leave until chocolate is completely dry.
Now comes the messy part, I then dipped the cake pop into the chocolate and completely covered the cake pop in chocolate. The put a side to dry. Don't worry the chocolate will drip off but it doesn't matter too much. You may want to double dip when the first layer is dry to make the cake underneath completely invisible.

If you need to know any more don't hesitate to contact me of you can email me at

Thank you for reading
lots of love
