TooFaced Haul

I’ve had these products for about 6 months now and I’ve had some time to decide whether these products are worth the purchase.

A must have is the Primed & Poreless powder, what a life saver! This is so good, this is my 3rd one now and there isn’t a powder like this one! It set my makeup so well and isn’t too heavy for me, I have dry skin as well and this powder doesn’t make that too obvious.

Shadow Insurance and Glitter Glue are amazing! Shadow Insurance is such good primer for my eye makeup, it stays on all day and night! The Glitter Glue is good it does the job and I have never had a problem with it personally.

Now the Born This Way foundation…. I got the lightest shade I could as my skin tone is pretty much never leave the house or seen the sun shade. I will be honest with you I hated this foundation at first, something just didn’t feel right and it didn’t sit right on my face BUT I tried it again a couple of months ago and now it’s my go to foundation for day time. It wasn’t full coverage for me but I prefer more of a natural look for day time, once you blend it in well it does leave you face flawless, the foundation colour is a bit off for me but I can make it work. I do recommend this just give it a chance!

Natural Love Palette! Yes! This is perfect for an everyday look, you can create so many looks and never get bored! I personally wouldn’t say I would use this palette for night time looks. I think what is lovely about this palette is that its suitable for all age groups, some palettes seem a tad intimidating at first but some of the subtle shades make you feel at ease. I feel if you want a starter palette or aren’t into bold looks this could be one to invest in!

Melted Latex….No. Don’t bother, I wasted money to be honest. I am all about TooFaced and I love their products but this one is a miss I’m afraid. I tried a bolder colour and it wasn’t what I expected I looked horrendous, the texture doesn’t do your lips justice and the consistency is unappealing. This product is a thumbs down overall. Give this one a miss if I were you!

Face masks Part 1

I love a facemask They are fundamental to my well-being – slightly shallow I know, but whatever works I say! Masks give me an opportunity to take time out when I feel stressed – or help me feel a little more productive when I’m in front of the TV binge watching my favourite programmes… simply slap on a face mask and it’s all good!

I love a peel-off mask: the satisfaction of peeling it off in one piece cannot be described in words– it’s just so good! So, I will be talking about those in this blog. This will be part 1 for facemasks I think it would just be too long doing it in one loooong blog!

Just to go off point for a minute, I’m going to start with the Tonymoly I’m Real Skin Care Facial Mask Sheet Package. These are great, from amazon, costing £12.60 for 11 sheets. There are different ones for specific problems such as; brightening, radiance, skin soothing and plenty more. I don’t mind sheet masks, but given the recent weather, they are ideal to cool you down, so perfect over the summer. The packaging is quite cute as well!

There are some great masks available in chemists and supermarkets – they are cheap and do help a lot! 7th Heaven Manuka Honey Peel-Off, is nice and purifies your skin. Another good brand is Freeman Feeling Beautiful, my favourite is their Cucumber Peel- Off Mask, I normally keep this one in the fridge as it enhances the experience and feels so nice especially on a hot day!

I bought these two from amazon, I will start off with the ToullGo Official Peel Off Blackhead Mask this is pretty interesting, I’ve heard and seen about ones similar and the pain but with this one I put it simple on my nose and it doesn’t hurt too much. It does get some blackheads out but if you want something that will do the job well, I recommend getting T-Zone Tea Tree & Witch Hazel 6 Nose Pore Strips. Lastly the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask is an excellent peel off mask: easy to put on, good for sensitive skin and it’s great,at controlling oil and minimising those pores!

Overall these are some pretty good products and great value for the money!

Dior Review

I bought these products back in February. The cushion foundation is slowly fading away (sad times) but the fact it has lasted so long shows that it is a great investment – I used it a fair bit nearly every day. I have also put down the colours I got them in!

My Skin

I have dryish skin on my forehead but everywhere else isn’t too bad, of course I have those annoying things; pores which will ruin me! I’m also quite pale, so sometimes it is hard to find a foundation that is just right and not too yellowy for me

The DiorSkin Forever Perfect Cushion (012) is fabulous and I will be purchasing another cushion soon. It’s light, barely feels like anything is on your face, coverage isn’t too bad but if there is a slight blemish you will for sure need to use some concealer. It is great for pores, mine aren’t as noticeable and really gives me a fresh look.

The DiorSkin Nude Air Loose Powder (010) I use this a lot too; it does give a lovely finish, not too heavy and it sets everything perfectly. I use this for nights out as well, plus it’s a bit of a bonus but the container/pot looks cute!

I think these products are worth the price, I am a tad picky with foundation, it’s hard to find one that stays on and doesn’t feel too heavy. I think these two together are perfect, they do the job I need.

So if you are looking for a light coverage and comfortable foundation then this could be a great fit for you!
