My Foundation Collection

P1230601

Illamasqua Skin Base|MAC Studio Fix Fluid|NARS Tinted Moisturiser|L’Oreal True Match|Rimmel Wake Me Up.

I love foundation and I like to have different coverages in my collection for different occasions and seasons but prefer a more medium coverage which doesn’t matte my skin – a satin finish. As a pale dry skinned girl finding good foundations can be difficult especially if you are on a budget. I have reviewed all of these separately so if you want to know more about each one click the link.

There are so many foundations out there any suggestions for what to add to my collection?

Rimmel BB Cream Radiance|Review

P1210989

Rimmel BB Cream Radiance£6.99

I was looking for a lightweight base for my early starts that I could blend with my hands and then go so I went for a BB Cream. I love Rimmel bases and the word radiance drew me in and they come in the shade very light.

This claims to have 9 properties in one bottle however some of the properties are the same thing just worded differently. However the shade is a great match for my skin a super pale, cool toned foundation with what I would call a medium coverage. The formula is somewhere between a liquid and a mousse which isn’t great for dry skin girls like myself as it tends to cling.

I love Rimmel bases but this is not something I will repurchase.

Best concealer ever?!|Maybelline The Eraser Eye

P1210470

 Maybelline The Eraser Eye Concealer£7.99

Its not secret that I love concealer and this beauty from Maybelline is fast becoming a holy grail product.

The main selling point for me is that it is super full coverage, it’s perfect for use on dark circles but also on any blemishes or imperfections. A super creamy formula that blends perfectly with either a beauty blender or your fingers. I know a lot of people are turned off by the sponge applicator but that really doesn’t bother me at all. The only thing that slightly annoys me is that it only comes in two shades – Light and Nude(I think there may be more shades in the US). I have both but Light is really the only one that works on my pale skin tone, Nude is too dark so I use it as a cream contour.
