However, I did buy myself some Rimmel Kate Matte Effect Lipstick, shade 107 and I love it! It's a deep red shade that I normally wouldn't go anywhere near, but actually looks fab! It's definitely long lasting, I woke up this morning with most of the formula still on my lips. It feels dry when it is on, but that is to be expected with a matte lipstick!
I've rediscovered some Body Shop facewashes that have been in the bathroom cabinet for ages but haven't been used. Admittedly, they've probably been in there a good year or so, but I'm going to give them another whirl!
I used the Seaweed Mattifying Face Wash. It does a good job of washing my face and removing excess oil. I'm going to use it for a week and see if my skin gets any less oily.
I also bought the Maybelline Baby Skin Anti-Fatigue Cream on a whim. It was 3 for 2 on maybelline products in Boots and I do like a good offer. I wasn't really expecting a great deal of difference.. I was pleasantly surprised. A small blob of the formula does seem to make a difference, it does make my pores look somewhat less pronounced! (If that is what it is supposed to do, it's unclear from the packaging what it actually does) It also smells beautiful!!
I tried the Nip+Fab CC Cream that I bought at the beginning of the week and I'm a bit disappointed, it was really hard to blend to the skin! It's definitely a step up from Maybelline's Dream BB Cream and I will definitely give it some time!
I bought some Essence products from Wilkinsons about 2 weeks ago, a Silky Touch Blush in shade 50 Sweetheart and All About Matt Fixing Compact Powder. These are definitely a staple in my Makeup bag from now on.
The blush adds a lovely pop of colour to the cheeks without being overly bright. It feels gorgeous on the skin, definitely feeling 'silky'. The pretty design of the blush doesn't last too long, but that's not the end of the world!
The fixing powder is awesome! It blends your blush and foundation so the overall look is smoother. It definitely reduces the look of my pores which are always prominent.
