|MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation / Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer / Veil Finishing Powder*|
When I first bought this foundation back in June I was a bit unsure of it, the shade (NC15) for me is a bit off and this often stuck to some of my dry patches which is not a good look! I recently got a dupe beauty blender (which should really be included in this post seeing as though i've used it almost everyday!) which works a treat with this foundation! It doesn't stick to any dry patches nor does it cake up. The shade is still a bit off but looks okay if blended down my neck, or if I've got fake tan on. I'd say this foundation is about medium coverage as it doesn't cover everything I'd like it to, but I suppose that's what concealer is for. The finish of this foundation is quite matt, but doesn't look too flat on my skin. With the recent hot weather I have been favouring matt finishes so I don't look an absolute glitter ball ;)
COLLECTION ILLUMINATING TOUCH CONCEALER - Boots
I know the majority of bloggers love the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer but it can be quite drying, especially under the eyes, which is where the Illuminating Touch Concealer comes in; it's peachy-pink tone helps to cover and neutralise dark circles and bags. The coverage may not match up to the Lasting Perfection Concealer, but I like this one more for certain areas. As for the illuminating bit, it isn't too over the top it just lifts the eyes a bit - perfect for when I go back to school because I always look tired no matter how early I go to sleep the night before!
VEIL FINISHING POWDER - veilcovercream.com
I got this in a little sample pack from the FABB Bloggers event in Manchester back in July and hadn't used it until my Rimmel Stay Matte powder smashed, along with the packaging, just before I was going on holiday so I took this one with me instead. I really like this powder because it adds a tiny bit of coverage and also keeps shine at bay. I have used this on it's own on good skin days and it looks really nice too! I have the shade 'dusk' which I think is the only shade, but there is a translucent shade too. You can get little sample packs for £6.50 and then if you order something you get the £6.50 off your order which is really handy because I think you can only get this online. I know it may be a bit too soon to say this, but I think this could be a holy grail product!
