Only more recently in my life have i established and developed a set make-up routine – i used to swap and change products all the time but now i have my set products that i repurchase opposed to trying out different ones all the time like i used to, so i thought i’d share these with you.
I’ve been wearing this foundation for two years, and four bottles down i can never change! It was probably a bad cycle to get into because now every time i have to hand over that near £30 i’m pretty sure my bank account cries. (hey Mac, if you could introduce a student discount you know, that would be fab!). But i completely see the difference if i use another foundation and it just ruins the whole make-up look so i’ve accepted now that this is the foundation for me and i adore it! I get shade NC20, which is the second lightest but i feel these shades are slightly darker than Studio Fix as i have NC25 in that one. I’d always recommend this foundation – just as a bit of background i have normal-dry skin, usually more dry than normal and i don’t really have any spots etc but i do have redness so it’s probably about a medium coverage but can defo be built up! There are an awful lot of mixed reviews surrounding this foundation – some love it, some hate it – but i suppose the only way you’ll find out is trying it for yourself! If you’re interested, make sure to take a look here.
I’ve purchased this mascara multiple times since it’s release and it’s just my favourite. When i used to work at a high street beauty store, everyone bought this and it was always on offer so do keep an eye out! They do extra black, waterproof and normal versions but i’d 100% say to look at this mascara if you haven’t already. It’s n
ot clumpy and it’s just great, well done to Maybelline for creating this holy grail product as before this i don’t think i’d ever repurchased a mascara!
Now they’ve recently changed the packaging and i think formula for this product, however i don’t know if it was just the way i was applying it as it seems to be back to normal now. The concealer i have linked is the original one whereas now its in a little glass bottle opposed to a tube, but i still purchase it! It’s £8 which again, makes me whimper a little every time i buy it but i’ve tried every other concealer and this is definitely my fave. I only use concealer for highlighting purposes – so under my eyes, chins, and then T-Zone, so i can’t really say how good this is for actually concealing blemishes as I buy it a shade lighter so can never use this for this purpose.
I’ll never change how i do my brows now that i’ve found this, if you’ve never tried it then what on earth have you been doing with your life?!? It’s £15 but it’s so worth it, i’ve had mine for over a year now and there’s still loads left. I don’t really know if it goes off or whatever, (but does anyone actually live by that?) but it works as well as it ever did. I love a strong brow and this has just changed my entire brow life.
(Please ignore how disgusting it looks in this picture – i’ve had it for so long forgive me!)
