Love the Makeup Geek Eye Shadows I started having the passion for makeup when I was younger. I find that this translates into my real life only on the odd special occasion; otherwise I prefer being fresh faced. I came across Makeup Geek a few years back and just fell for Marlena’s tutorials. She to …
This is a great foundation! I was pleasantly surprised -“It does exactly what it says on the tin!”
When I saw the Maybelline’s boot camp for the new SuperStay Better Skin foundation on Facebook, I jumped at the chance to join in. I am always up for a challenge or for a good juicy make-up review.
I don’t normally wear foundation every day and reserve it just for special occasions. However, I have always wanted a foundation that I could use everyday without it adversely effecting my skin. I have normal skin and therefore prefer nothing heavy. This foundation is good and really caters for all skin types. I found it light and dewy.
I have been using the foundation for just over 2 and half weeks and can safely say that this foundation is really great! Over the course of use, I can see a visible difference in my skin. My skin is more even, smooth and glowing. I am so happy with the results that I can recommend this to anyone who is in need for a foundation with no regrets.
This foundation retails at a reasonable £8.99 which is dream in itself. The bottle contains a good amount, about 30ml and comes with a pump, which is better for hygiene. It also contains SPF20 which provides not only sun protection and the bonus is that there is no camera flashback! I have tested this thoroughly :-).
Overall I have been very impressed with this foundation and would definitely buy it. I can now say that I vouch for Maybelline’s slogan – “See better looking skin!”
The Matt Lipstick
I was really excited about trying this new lipstick sensation from Bourjois – the Rouge Edition Velvet. Not only are they a good buy (compared to other more expensive brands) but also have such great colour payoff and highly pigmented. And with such vibrant colours to choose from – it’s easy to want them all!
There were only a few colours in my local Boots, but I hope they have more colours. These will be great for the spring summer seasons.
On first application the lipstick feels almost powdery, but after a few minutes it turns into a lovely velvety matte texture.
The staying power is also impressive, lasting on the lips for a long time (and that is saying something, as nothing lasts on my lips!) Reason enough for this must have buy. When applied lightly it also gives a nice look of natural vibrancy. A real winner!
