What make up items remind you of childhood? There’s a few things that stick in my mind, things that I found from rummaging in my aunt or mother’s make up bags.
1. A YSL Lipstick in a bright red (smelt good)
2. A Mary Quant Blusher in a bright Fuchsia (The case was shiny black and had the little flower logo all over)
3. Lots of things from Boots No. 7
4. Max Factor Creme Puff!
For some bizarre reason that I can’t even explain to my psychiatrist, I bought of Creme Puff Foundation to try:
I was feeling nostalgic. Let me feel nostalgic, god dammit.
The powder comes in a blue round case and has a non-clicky lid, which makes me nervous.
I got Deep Beige in 42, which is great for my NC35 complexion.
Creme Puff is a high coverage powder make-up that can be used over moisturiser, foundation or as an all-in-one makeup. It contains millions of tiny light reflectors that give off a special glow.
I distinctly remember using my aunts sponge and digging it into the powder and slapping it all over my face. Gorgeous!
This powder I think, is actually very creamy and soft. Medium coverage.
I can totally see why this stuff was a hit – I mean the quality is pretty good.
There’s also that very distinctive smell going on – light perfume. Its all part and parcel of this product even though I personally am not a fan of scented powders.
The finish is matte and quite silky. Without a doubt, you need a light hand otherwise its chalky city…with my current dry skin, I used this with much caution as it sticks to the flaky bits.
The ingredients are pretty old school. The first ingredient is Talc! Not great I know, but I didn’t think it had a very chalky finish although I would personally avoid a Talc powder for daily use:
The powder on me:
I bought this for a play only to be honest, and I have had that. I may use this for a retro make over at some point, but its not an item I would use in real day to day life – I have to many good products to use up first.
I’d recommend this if you want a creamy powder, medium coverage at a decent (under£5) price. Its really not bad.
