Foundation Friday// MAC Studio Fix Powder

Foundation Friday is here again, and this weeks foundation is a little bit different.
MAC Studiofix Powder appealed to me after my great experience with the Fluid version. Designed to give a lightweight finish that keeps skin oil free all day, this powder is pretty special.

This foundation promises to control shine with ingredients like Silica, which helps to absorb oil throughout the day. Ingredients like Talc help to give this foundation a velvety, matte finish which looks very natural. Sounds ideal for me! (more…)

Foundation Friday// MAC Studio Fix Fluid

20140417-150241.jpgToday marks the beginning on Foundation Friday. 8 weeks of foundation reviews, every Friday, to prepare you for your next foundation purchase. Not because I think you should wear the ones I’m suggesting, but because I know how horrible it is trying to find the right one for your skin type.

So lets kick of Foundation Friday with a bang. MAC Studio Fix Fluid is a foundation that took me some time getting used to but has now become one of my all time favourites.

Packed inside a glass bottle is 30mls of full coverage foundation that applies smoothly on both dry and oily skins.

This foundation goes on quite dewy but sets to a perfect mix of matte and glow. The coverage is full but it doesn’t look strange on the skin or feel too heavy. As with all MAC foundations, its incredibly easy to find the perfect match for your skin colour. Mine being NC15, shamefully pale I know! (more…)

This Weeks Beauty Buys #2

It’s been a busy few weeks, so I felt some little treats were needed (of course).

So often I turn to reds and subtle pinks when buying lipstick so this week I decided to try two completely new colours.
The first is MAC Pink Nouveau which is a bright, Barbie pink that looks great when worn with simple black eye liner and pink blush. Im loving this colour right now!

Another product I’m loving is L’Oreal Colour Caresse Lip Stain in Eve. Looks and feels a bit like a gloss but is actually a stain that is so comfortable to wear and doesn’t dry out! I often find lip stains just emphasise dry, cracked lips and if you find this too then this product is for you!

My February Favourites!

February has been and gone, so I thought I’d share my favourites from the month!

Starting with my current foundation. I discovered this at work, one of my colleagues makeup was flawless for a whole 12 hour shift and I HAD to know what her secret was. Its MAC Studio Fix Fluid. This foundation really is something else, it gives my skin a naturally flawless look that lasts up to 8 hours on my oily skin but definitely longer on someone with dry skin. I love it because it gives Β me a flawless, almost
