L'Oréal Paris Infallible 4HR Matte Foundation

Loreal Infallible 24hr

I took the plunge and bought this on saturday, R189 at clicks and when looking at the small tube it sort of seems like it’s expensive and I had to think twice about buying it. I can say I am very well impressed with it, it is very matte and you can build the cover to perfection but at the same time it looks so smooth and natural. The one thing about it tho is it is a bit drying on my skin, when i first put it on in the morning it makes my face feel dry and tight (kinda like the feeling of the LA girl matte glosses) but then I find that if I apply a bit more moisturizer before applying it then its fine and also about an hour or two into my day when my skin would normally start getting shiny and oily then it kinda balances it out so it works out perfectly!! And lasts all day. I can see this is gonna become a big hit! The little tube it comes in is also super cute!

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

Maybelline Baby Skin

Everyone raved so about this primer that I had to go out and get one but honestly I am not too impressed, I find it to be too oily for me and it actually makes my makeup slip around a bit (probably cause of the oiliness). I think maybe better suited for people with dry skin that can handle the richness of it. The product feels good on skin and goes on silky and soft with a typical silicone primer feel. But then I find it settles quickly to a oily layer. Also I kind of expected the tube to be a bit bigger. The packaging is pretty though and the price is good and I’m sure I will try using it again when my skin is dry and can deal with it

Woolworths Lip & Cheek Tint

Woolies lip and cheek tint

This is such a handy little blush and lip tint! Its totally affordable and easy to use. I got a bit of a bright color and at first glance i thought it was gonna be too hectic when applied but it actually looks so natural and pretty when applied. i just use my finger to apply it and dab on my cheek area a bit and then use my complexion sponge to blend it to a natural look. It gives lips a moisturized tint and glow. the product has a good texture and no real smell to it, it does not irritate skin or lips. The packaging is basic but pretty.


Benefit They’re Real Mascara

This is a great mascara! I love the brush, the bristles on the end are so nicely placed so you can get those little inner eye lashes. Easy to use! Its got a deep black color and gives great volume and length. A tad bit pricey but its definitely worth it. The packaging and look of it is also very pretty.
