Products I have had my eye on.

I'm forever on the look out for a new holy grail product. As much as I love my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation, I tend to get bored as I near the end of the bottle and crave a new product. At the mo', I have been eyeing up Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foudation. Nearly every blogger and beauty lover on the blogosphere must own/have at least tried this, but I am one of those types of girls that will happily plod along with one foundation at a time, or they purely won't all get used. I have heard great this about this, but with my oily/combination skin type and the need to powder, I have a feeling this won't benefit me, what so ever. Thoughts?
Another foundation I have been contemplating purchasing, is Revlon's PhotoReady Foundation. As I have very fair skin, I am always on the look out for a pale foundation, that won't leave me with an orange complextion. That is where my love for Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum lies. I have their lightest shade, that suits my skin tone to a T. I don't need to even use a mirror or blend, as its that perfectly suited. However, I would like it to have slightly more coverage, for when I need it in certain areas of my face. From what I have heard, this Revlon one has good coverage?
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle has been on my wishlist for a while! I only own one high end product, which is a MAC Lipstick in Myth. If I were to invest in a high end product, I would want it to be justified and worth it. As I have oily/combination skin type, I do have to powder my face. There is no way around that. Its a shame, as I do like the look of a dewy finish from my foundation, but by the end of the day (or even lunch time), I will just look a greasy mess. Nice. However, this is why I thought this highlighting glow shade would be perfect to add some luminosity back to my skin, in a powder form. Yes? Even though it is £21.50 for a compact of powder, this would get greatly used and I can imagine I wouldn't run out of it any time soon!

Contouring. Wouldn't it be lovely to have chissled cheek bones, naturally. Well, I don't have that. As I have to powder my skin, I sometimes feel that I just flatten my face, giving it no definition. Which is why I have been thinking about dabbling into contouring. Sleek Contour Kit in Light. I just have a fear I will think it will look seamless in my bedroom, until I enter the outside world, to be told I have orange streaks across my cheek bones. Imagine! What are your thoughts for the paler girls?

So for the time being, these are what I have had my eye one, before my current one's run out! What are your thoughts? 




  1. The rimmel foundation is really good. The colours are great for my pale skin, and gives a gorgeous finish. Not cakey or orange at all xx

    1. I really want to try it. I'm running out of my current foundation, so I think will be my next purchase!
