Review and First Impressions on NYX HD Finishing Powder

Hey Everyone! 

When I went to the NYX counter the other week I didn't just pick up the liquid lipstick, I also got the HD Translucent Finishing Powder. I have to say I have been wanting this product for some time because I've had translucent loose powders before and it made me go more white than I am? This is why I want to try this brand. Now I am as pale as ever and I do not need a powder to make me look more white but I only hear good things about the product so I can't wait to try it. 

To begin with I put my Bobbi Brown foundation and my Revlon concealer on to hide all those little imperfections on my face, then I reached for my HD powder to set my foundation. I decided to use the baking technique for under my eyes so I put a little more under my eyes to set my concealer. Then using my large powder brush by Eco I tapped it in my powder and placed it around my face. I made sure I patted it everywhere to set my foundation and concealer. After that I wiped away my under eye bake and by my surprise it made me look very pale! I was disappointed, which I hate to say. Also my face did look pale but there wasn't a big difference around my face. I felt deceived by the lady at boots who could definitely see that I was pale enough. Using my smaller Eco brush I carried on dusting away the powder and it made it better but I still felt like I had just put white powder under my eye.

However on the other hand the powder worked well with my foundation and it doesn't look cakey or make me feel like I've put a whole other layer or make up on. My foundation is a little darker than my actual skin tone but it's really not noticeable but having the powder make me a little lighter it makes a perfect match (except under my eyes). I still got oily in my normal parts I get oily but it definitely wasn't as much as usual (my chin, upper lip and forehead). Taking this into account my face didn't look oily it still looked matte and fresh.

All in all I think this is great, yes it has a downfall but that's because I'm pale but these make up lines need to take us into account, am I right? I don't think I will bake with this product maybe I should buy the Ben Nye powder in banana maybe it would work better but I don't know? Unless I find another loose powder product I like I would purchase this one again. 

You can purchase this product at boots for £8.00 

Have you tried this powder? Have you tried the Ben Nye powder?

Fenty Beauty Review

Hey Everyone! Happy New Year I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a fab new year, I know I did. Today’s blog is a review on the Fenty Beauty foundation by Rihanna, I have had this foundation since its came out but have had some time off from my blog as big changes happened in my life. However I am back at it and ready to share my favourite and not so favourite make up products with you all.
The first thing that I loved about this foundation was the range of shades they done, how incredible the range is. The second thing I loved was I was not the lightest shade… can we take a minute now at times the lightest shade is too dark for me. This foundation is like a second skin, it is very lightweight and looks very natural. I believe it to be medium coverage because if you have some face demons like me they still show through but I can build it and it builds very well. I don’t think I would say it builds to full coverage but close enough. Before using you have to shake the bottle I notic…
Hey Everyone! 
Today I’m going to talk you through what I use to prep my face for a full face of make-up. There is only two products I currently use and the thing with me is when I find something that works I tend not to stray from it. Although I am all for trying new things I will probably always go back to my holy grail products, that have my face feeling lavely. 
First things first I wash my face with cold water and dab it dry. I have done this for a while and just feel it closes my pores and minimises any faults on my face. I then take my Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Palm this does not only smell amazing but it gives my face a fresh smooth layer. I can get very dry around my nose and under eye that can make my make-up look cakey, which as you can imagine is the worst. However when I started using this I noticed my foundation went on much smoother on my nose and left no flakes. 
The next product I use is the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Clear, now you will find in one of my firs…

What I use for my skincare

Hey Everyone!
Today I want to share with you what products I use to help my keep my skin as clear as possible. Although these products do help I still get those face demons when it’s coming up to ladies time and sometimes throughout the month when I’ve been lazy and not taken my make up off properly or just not used my products.

My first product is the Simple Moisturising Facial Wash, I use this when I’m in the shower while washing my face. I love the simple product line because it just makes your skin feel nice and smooth and gives it a tight feeling that feels like a fake face lift. It is very gentle on the skin and I have combination skin so I am dry here and oily there so it can be annoying trying to find something that suits both my needs. This however is very kind to my skin and I will continue to use it because I love it.

The second product is Clean and Clear Exfoliating Wash, this is the second product I use on my face when I’m in the shower. This does wonders to my skin and …
