    I am going out to buy the Woolworths lip and cheek tint, I love the idea of one product for both and would love to see if the creamy consistency makes it last on my cheeks

    The Avon Bronzing Pearls look really promising. Are they matte though?

    There are just so many blushers, I feel like there’s something to suit every skin tone and skin type. Having caramel skin, I feel the ‘bronzy’ shades generally suit me better than the bright pinks or the pastels, which make me look far too artificial. I started using the Avon Bronzing Pearls about two weeks ago, and I can honestly say that it’s a great product, and I KNOW it’s going to last really long. The first time I applied it, I was really heavy on the swirling… :-x I used far too much, and I ended up looking rather sunburned when I was done. As fun as it is to swirl and dust, swirl and dust, you have to use these products really sparingly… With Avon’s pearls, I literally just swirl once and then lightly dust my entire face in small circles, concentrating on my brow bone, chin, forehead, and the apples of my cheeks. The light catches the shimmer particles beautifully! Perfect for all year round usage – not just the summer months. Definitely invest in one of these babies. You can’t go wrong. I would like to try the BodyShop’s pearls next. They’re not too badly-priced, and they seem to have lighter shades than the those available in Avon’s range. I think you can splurge on something like a bronzer without feeling too guilty… they really last and last! Use sparingly, though. I think that should be the rule for all make-up. x
