Sun Protection in your Face Powder: Skin79 Diamond All Day Sun Powder SPF 30

Skin70-All-Day-Sun-Powder-SPF-30-BB-Cream-Diamond.jpg

Buy something just because of the packaging? Me? Never! Well ok…quite often. Skin79 has some interesting releases, although their BB cream is too light for me and their concealer didn’t cut the mustard! I wanted to try this All Day Sun Powder though – it sets your make up and has a high SPF of 30 too. And it, er, comes in a really nice case. They say: Luxurious loose powder formulated with Diamond Powder […]

The most natural face powder, ever! Sofina Primavista Keep & Reset Powder Review

Primavista-Powder-.jpg

Primavista is a Japanese brand created by Sofina, one of the big cosmetic companies in Japan (and one of the best!). Primavista is focused on base products; primers, concealers, foundations and powders. I have been completely dying to try something from their range (but nervous as to whether I could match my skin up to the right shade) because I was confident their range would be high quality. Finally, I got a chance to try […]

Perfect Powder? Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Review

Laura-Mercier-Loose-Setting-Powder.jpg

I don’t know why I have a thing for Loose Powders, especially as most of them last a life time – why would I need more than, say, one?! I did really like the Armani Micro Fil Powder before I realised it is SUPER sparkly, and I iz no Edward Cullen. Nevertheless, I purchased this Laura Mercier Loose Powder to try – I’ve heard so many good things about it. Something about the brown of […]

Get glowing cheeks: Natio Mineral Illuminating Powder Review

Natio-Mineral-Illuminating-Powder-1.jpg

Natio is a “natural” Australian brand which recently parked its bum in Debenhams. I was sent this Mineral Illuminating Powder to test. They say: A light reflecting powder that instantly lifts and brightens skin tone. Iridescent highlights draw attention to the skin leaving it fresh and radiant looking. This Illuminating Powder comes with a brush on the top of the case. The powder doesn’t come through to the top of the brush (as I thought), […]

Chanel Mat Lumiere Luminous Matte Powder Make Up 80 Contour Review

Chanel-Mat-Lumiere-Teint-Compact-Poudre-Mat-Et-Lumineux.jpg

When I was on the Chanel counter last week I purchased three things, the Chanel Mat Lumiere Liquid Foundation, the Chanel Bronze Universel and this, the powder version of the Mat Lumiere base: You don’t need to buy this to go with the Mat Lumiere Liquid Foundation! You can use any powder to set it! This powder if a powder foundation, which means it has greater coverage on the skin, so used with the liquid […]

The Balm Sexy Mama Translucent Anti Shine Face Powder Review

Sexy-Mama-The-Balm-Face-Anti-Shine-Translucent-Powder.jpg

The Balm, for all intents and purposes is a very cute brand to use and I have tried some bits and pieces from their range that have been quite successful. This product, the Sexy Mama is a anti-shine translucent powder which is supposed to work for all skintones. The result is a matt, soft effect without a cakey look. It comes in a cute compact that is cardboard – I have always said I prefer […]

Bye Bye Dark Circles! Benefit Powderflage Powder Concealer Set Review

Benefit-Powderflage-Powder-Concealer-Light-Diffusing.jpg

I’m a bit slow with this product but still…Benefit’s Powderflage Powder Concealer – or should I say light reflecting powder caught my eye ages ago but by the time I was ready to buy, I couldn’t find it on counter anywhere! The gal on Benefit told me she had “never heard of it before” – eh?! Luckily I found it on ASOS. Apparently Powderflage is being discontinued but you will still find it on odd […]

Old Skool Beauty: Max Factor Creme Puff Foundation Review

max-factor-creme-puff-deep-beige.jpg

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 […]
