My favourite make up combo this week was Day 5 (head to my Instagram for daily #FOTD posts). Here’s why this my was winning combo this week:
I had heard so many good things about the Covergirl Healthy Elixir Foundation – and now I know why! This foundation quickly became my new favourite (besides my beloved B.B. creams). I’m not sure if it was because of the Loreal Mattifying Primer (I’ll have to keep testing) but the foundation applied somewhere in the middle of a dewy and satin finish. The Primer for the most part did keep me matte, but my nose did show oiliness by the 3 hour mark. The foundation has a really nice scent (not overbearing and didn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all). It looked and felt like a 2nd skin and it stayed that way all day!! The shade range does not cater to fair skin (I’m usually at the Porcelain end of the scale). But as I was desperate to try it I just made it work by blending down my neck and decolletage. I am literally obsessed with this foundation after yesterday 😍
Since buying the W7 Cosmetics Mascara last week I have used it most days this week – I’m loving it! Subtle but easily buildable. It’s perfect for me at 2 coats. It doesn’t transfer on my eye lids, and it’s super affordable (and Vegan)!
The Nyx Cosmetics blush is quite pigmented so next time I’ll use a lighter hand. Stayed on all day and gave me a nice flush on the cheek. The Powder Puff Lippie is also a new favourite, I am loving the new sponge applicator lippies at the moment! Glides on powdery, into a creamy matte. Felt a little dry by the end of the day so I used Lanolips to hydrate my lips!
Overall my make up lasted about 8 hours looking flawless and I found myself looking in the mirror with excitement 😍
