This week has been a funny one. My skin has been a little bit better and not as oily but unfortunately, redder then usual. As it’s been less oily I busted out few products that don’t see much action these days; Max Factor Xperience Foundation, a medium coverage dewy finish that feels really lovely on the skin (with decent staying power) and The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter, one of the best liquid highlighters around in my opinion. I also rediscovered another favourite highlighter; Bourjois Illuminating Touch Rose Essentiel, I carried this around in my bag for most of the week and patted a little bit on my cheekbones and cupids bow when I was out for the evening.
Evening makeup was also a little more dramatic then usual, I used Illamasqua Liquid Metal in “Enrapture” on the eyes, it’s a really dirty burnt gold that goes on like a dream but creases pretty bad, so I set it with a little bit of shadow. The colour payoff is insane and so striking that I wonder why I don’t use it more? Lastly, I started using Stila One Step Correct Primer which I got from Feel Unique. In a way, I don’t want to use it as the super cool spirals of product inside the tube will be disrupted! But, needs must and all that so I’ve been slapping it on every morning before my foundation. A nice product to use, really smooth in texture and invisible on the skin. I don’t know whether all the different ingredients do actually brighten/reduce redness/blueness etc but it sure looks pretty in the tube, and this alone will keep me happy and using it!
Are any of you using these products at the moment?
