Make-up Beauty Haul

Saturday, 28 June 2014

Hey everyone!

I've had a few interviews lately with different media companies for internships/jobs, I'm hoping that one of them will get back to me and I'll finally have a full-time job! Being unemployed is the worst thing because I like spending money on beauty and clothes so I've really had to hold back.

Anyway, I went on a little online shopping spree and bought a few beauty products that I thought I'd share with you guys.

Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder

The face powder made famous by Kim Kardashian. I tried out a sample of this Ben Nye setting powder a while ago and loved it so much that I bought the full tub. This luxury powder in Banana really suits skin tones with a yellow/golden/olive undertone. I love to use this to set my under eye concealer as it gives it such a flawless finish. The powder is finely milled and really smooth. It's also inexpensive so it's definitely worth trying if you haven't already.

Ben Nye Neutral Set Colourless Face Powder

This neutral set powder is amazing. I use this to set my whole face and it's colourless so it's suitable for all skin tones. I love the consistency of this. It's even more affordable than the luxury powder and I got this in the huge 8oz tub, so it's definitely going to last a while!

Make-up Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation

This foundation has been hyped about so much that I thought I'd give it a try. I got the shade #153 Golden Honey which is described as a medium olive colour. I personally think this shade is a little too yellow for me, which is a shame because the actual product is pretty good. Though the coverage is medium-buildable and gives a nice light satiny finish, I still prefer my MAC studio fix (NC42) over this. 

Mehron Celebré Pro HD Make-Up

I have always wanted to try out a cream-based foundation, so I did a little research and chose what I thought would be a good match for me. I'm so glad I got this foundation, it is amazing! It gives you full coverage without looking cakey. It also looks so natural that you can't tell you're wearing foundation. This range comes in 20 shades to suit light, medium, medium-dark, dark and eurasia skin tones. It is also super affordable as well, retailing at the same price as a drugstore/high-street foundation. I got the shades Eurasia Fair and MD1. Eurasia Fair would match those with NC30-37 skin and MD1 with NC45. I mix a tiny bit of MD1 with Eurasia Fair to get my perfect skin tone. MD1 is very orange/pink toned whereas Eurasia Fair has an Olive/Yellow undertone.

So there you have my recent beauty purchases. I hope you found this helpful, please leave comments below - thanks for reading!
