Moroccan Oil Hair Repair & Moitsure Trio ♥

I am so excited to be able to give you a mini review of the Moroccan Oil Hair Repair & Moisture Trio!! I got this for one of my birthday presents from my parents (which you can read about on my previous blog post) however, I am pretty sure that my older sister had a lot to do with this gift!

This trio has made my hair fabulously soft and shiny! It was really easy to brush through, and my hair is now completely frizz free.

When actually applying the shampoo in specific, the more water added in small amounts, meant that the shampoo expanded more and more. At first, I wasn't too impressed and seemed that it would be a wasteful product, yet thankfully I was wrong!

As for the conditioner and oil, the saying 'a little bit goes a long way' really does apply! I have had a small bottle of the oil since my 16th birthday, and it's still going strong, so I have high hopes for the new bottle which I am yet to open, and both the shampoo and conditioner :)

The box actually advises to re-apply a few drops of the oil treatment through out the day, however I have not felt the need to do this, as it lasts nicely in my hair until the next wash (Sundays and Wednesdays for me). 

I cannot sing enough praise for this product, and I will definiely be re-purchasing. Although the miniature bottles are brilliant for travelling, after having tried it out, I would like to buy the bigger bottles of the shampoo and conditioner for at home :) 

I don't know where my set was bought from, but if you fancy a cheeky purchase, then I have found it for a brilliant price at Look Fantastic

Have you tried Moroccan Oil? What do you think? :)

17 ♥

Up until now, I have always wanted to be 17; not 16, not 18, but 17 seemed to be the age to be. On Monday 3rd, I FINALLY turned 17!!

I celebrated at the weekend with a few friends, and today I am going to Disneyland Paris !!:) It was also my younger brother, Dylan's 16th birthday on Monday, so we are taking him and some of his friends too :) 

Every year I get even more surprised with the gifts I recieve, and feel so thankful to have such generous and kind family and friends. Because of this, I really want to share them with you!:)

The picture is of me and my Grandma ♥

One of my lovely friends made me a massive boquet of my favourite chocolates and biscuits, and it looked insanely amazingly gorgeous! However, I did eat most of it before I got the chance to take a picture of it!! My parents also got me a pogo stick (!!) my provisional licence with suprise lessons on the day (!!) and Dylan got me a Stitch onesie :) <-- I have wanted one of these for so long and I am obsessed!

I really am so unbelievably grateful for everything which I recieved, and this birthday definitely has been one which I will never forget. So thank you to everyone who made it as special as it was ♥

Please feel free to check out my Instagram account @domowen97 and Twitter account @dommieowen for updates of my trip to Disney!!

I'm not a massive fake nails lover myself. Although I do think that they look nice, I have always had the fear that they would look stupid on me, and also that they would completely ruin my nails. 

However, when browsing the aisles of Primark, I saw these nails for only £1! As an owl obsessed teenager, I really did feel the need to purchase, and the price was hardly hefty.

To my suprise, I am really pleased with the nails. I did file them down because they were way too long, but they're lasting really well, and feel gorgeous!

Primark offered a range of gorgeous style nails (I'm thinking of buying these black and white polka dot/cat ones next) and for the cheap price of £1, it's hard to refuse!

Do you wear false nails often? Which ones do you prefer?

Stila One Step Correct ♥

After having been eyeing this product up for some time now, at the beginning of January I finally made the plunge to purchase Stila's One Step Correcter. 

The different lines of colour in this primer have always fascinated me, and as I have extremely rosey cheeks, it's perfect to tone the redness down a little. Whenever I wear this primer, my foundation always looks glowing (in a good, soft and dewy way) the make up look lasts all day and night, as well as, of course, reducing redness!! Stila claim that One Step Correct "immediately improves skin tone, evens out your complexion and helps smooth fine lines" and I definitely agree. 

Although the price (£24.00 Boots) may appear steep, it is a primer, and through the handy pump the amount used is also easily controllable, so it should last a while. PLUS if you buy from Boots, you will be getting your Advantage Card points ...
* green - minimizes redness 
* lavender - counteracts sallow undertones 
* peach - brightens, illuminates and helps diminish the appearance of sun spots

Always on the look out for new products, I would love to know of any primers you recommend? I am thinking my next one will be a Smashbox one.

Top 3 Favourite Foundations ♥

Over the past year, my collection of foundations - although still significantly smaller than others - seems to have been building itself up, and I have been able to purchase some of the foundations which I have been wanting for quite a while. When I say 'quite a while,' I'm talking years for one of them!
My top 3 foundations include Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, Nars Sheer Glow and Armani Luminous Silk. Each of these foundations are brilliant, and ones which I would definitely re-purchase. It's hard to put these 3 in order, so through weighing up the pros and cons, this is the order which I came up with.

3.Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum:
This foundation actually amazed me. It was the first drug-store foundation which I had ever used, and it was recommended to me by one of my older sisters. The quality of this foundation is fantastic, long-lasting and makes my skin look flawless - but not too flawless where it looks fake. Bourjois Healthy Mix serum has a buildable coverage, yet also looks brilliant with a lighter coverage for everyday use. For the less expensive price of £9.99, and Boots and Superdrug often having 3for2 through out their range of makeup products offered, buying this foundation is definitely a 'yes' for those of you who haven't already.

2. Nars Sheer Glow:
I rekindled my love for this foundation quite recently. My oldest sister gave this to me, and I loved it! I used it everyday, and felt like it looked amazing. The reason for me stopping its use, was because I was scared that it was running out :( However, a couple of weeks ago, I was craving its radiant finish and had to use it again. My opinion was not displeased, and Sheer Glow lived up to its thriving reputation. If you're looking to spend a bit more on a foundation with an extensive lasting period, and very good coverage, then I suggest finding your way to a Space NK store, picking up this beauty, and maybe a few other goodies...

1. Armani Luminous Silk:

We all have those products which we see, and have it at the top of our lists for a good year or so (even more sometimes) until we eventually buy it, and oh my! The wait was definitely worth it! Well this foundation is without-a-doubt one of them. I first saw this foundation when watching Kendall Jenner's Beauty Bag. Automatically I decided that I just had to try it. Due to its hefty price tag, I didn't buy it for ages and I am so glad that I've got it now! Luminous Silk is very versatile, being my favourite one I reach for to create so many different looks. Like the other two foundations, this one has very good coverage and can be worn all day/night with a constant flawless finish. My favourite way to wear this foundation is with simple eye, my Milani Baked Blush in 'Dolce Pink'  and with a cherry-red lip; a personal favourite of mine being Babylips Cherry Me.

-What are your favourite foundations? Any suggestions?

-Love Dom

OOTW: Sixth Form Style

Next week - if I'm correct - it will have been a month since I started sixth form. Over the summer holidays, whilst purchasing, and planning, most of my outfits, I decided that I wanted to do a weekly blog post about my favourite outfit of the week:) 
I decided to leave it a couple of weeks in to the term so I could get settled in, and also, if I was to take pictures are sixth form, I would need to find a way of doing so without the entire building thinking I'm a freak! Hehe, in the end, I decided to take pictures in the comfort oft own home this week!
I am so in love with my skirt; this must be the 4th time I've worn it (already!) as I also wore it to an induction day. I got in it the sale from Oasis. 
The shirt is from the Kardashian Kollection in Dorothy Perkins, which I got in December last year! I have barely worn it, but the bagginess, and lace detailing on the shoulder seemed a perfect fit for a
short day at sixth! 
My absolutely gorgeous bag is (of course!) from Zara. I'm sure you've heard millions of things about the office city bag, and I have wanted it for so long! So I decided it would be a school bag for me, and then I had an excuse to buy it! 
So far, I am loving the 'style yourself' aspect of sixth form, I haven't got bored of it yet, and to be honest, I can't actually see myself getting drained of it, regardless to what other people say! I think it's fab!

Bioderma ♥

Very rarely will people come across a product that changes their life. I, along with many others, definitely have.
Ok, so it might not be life changing, but it’s definitely in that direction! 
Although I expected that everyone had read a review on Bioderma, I was very surprised to see requests for one. However, I do not mind, at all, as Bioderma is one of my favourite beauty products! 

I bought my first Bioderma last February, on a day trip to France. (Read post here). I am still using the same bottle, at least once a day, and it definitely has a couple of uses left :) Bioderma completely removes any traces of make-up on the face/neck (if you're obsessed with ensuring that your foundation completely matches your skin tone, like I am!) I find that it works best on the bigger, square/rectangular shaped cotton pads, found in the baby section!
 Bioderma is fragrance free, so it isn't harsh on the skin, or to the eyes. Infact, I find it works amazingly as an eye make-up remover, better than the one I used to use. 
If I am correct, I understand that Bioderma is either available now at Boots, or it will be very shortly, and that it is available at leading pharmacies, espeically in London. However, if you haven't found it in stores yet, it is available to buy oline at
I definitely recommend the use of Bioderma, so whenever you can get your hands on some - do! 
Have you ever tried the product? What do you think of it?:)

*Reviews are my opinions only, and I cannot ensure that this specific Bioderma  is suitable for all skin types.*
