Ok so this picture is not over everything that I've bought over the last two months but it's the most relevant for this post
STROBE CREAM buy it HERE
probably one of the dumbest things I've bought to date. When I saw it, I though OH MY DAYS this cream will make my make up do shine shine if I apply it underneath. WRONG. This cream does NOTHING. It's got a luminous look to it which is so deceptive. I find that it only moisturises my skin for all of 5 seconds. Waste of time paaa I shan't be buying it again.
this gets a 3/10
MATCH MSTER FOUNDATION in 8.5 buy it HERE
I first saw this foundation about two years ago. When I tried it on I tried on an 8 & and 8.5. both looked similar. I found that it made my face glow and was so matched to my skin colour that it gave the most beautiful natural look. 2 years later I buy it and I am NOT seeing any of those qualities! I find this foundation so utterly crap. No glow no shine shine just foundation. I much prefer MAC's studio fix fluid foundation which is also like £6 cheaper. I shan't be buying this again.
I give this a 5/10
MINERALIZE CONCEALER NW40 buy it HERE
Even though I have other liquid concealers I bought this one because this seems to be the only NW40 concealer that is noticeably lighter on my skin. I love this concealer it doesn't feel too heavy and it does the job.
I apply this concealer under my eyes and above my eyebrows from the Kim K glow and blend it out with a small foundation brush. It blends better with this brush.
This concealer gets an 8/10
MINERALIZE FOUNDATION POWDER LOOSE MEDIUM DEEP buy it HERE
This stuff is DA BOM DOT COM. LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEE this powder! As you can see, its way lighter than my skin colour reason being is that I use it to set my under eye concealer. I'm telling you this is the best setting technique ever it works so well for me and I hardly every get any creasing under my eye I'm just amazed. I only get creasing under my eyes if if worn my make up for longer than 8 hours but usually when I prime under my eyes, creasing happens up to 30 mins after. I also want to try the ben nye banana powder but that will have to be a bit later.
I put this powder on the places I want to be highlighted. So underneath my eyes, above my forehead and on my chin. It is very messy and I do tend to touch my my eyebrows again after.
This powder looks its best when it sets into the skin which may take a few minutes. During this time I put my pencil eyeliner on, do my eye shadow (if I want to) and use my sleek contour kit in dark and apply the dar pressed powder along my hairline, on my temple and on my cheek bones.
I give this product a 10/10 fa'real fa'real!
