Fenty Hydrating Foundation in 100 Review + Comparison Swatches

This review is definitely coming really late especially given how excited I was for the Fenty Hydrating Foundation to launch but I wanted to thoroughly test this foundation before the review and admittedly I got a little bit distracted with the Pat McGrath Skin Fetish.

Sonia G Pro Face Set Review

I previously only tried the Sonia G Sculpt Two brush which I initially purchased to use with my Nars Sun Diffusing Bronzer but soon discovered that it also worked fabulously for quick contouring and picked all my harder pressed pans with ease. Having a bit of a soft spot for squirrel cheek brushes while also loving the stiffer powder formulas can be a bit tricky and I thought Sonia G was perfect because the goat hairs were still plush but picked and deposited product really well. I’m not keen on brush sets but I figured I would get use out of most of the brushes in the Pro Face Set and that’s the one I picked up. I’ve had these for a few months now and wanted to give myself a chance to try every single one of them out thoroughly. So was is worth it? Continue reading “Sonia G Pro Face Set Review”

Comparing Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronze in Tantalize and Tantastic

Having red hair and yellow undertones makes finding bronzers quite a challenge. Anything yellow toned (think Benefit Hoola Lite) will make me look like I have jaundice and that’s the last thing I need. On top of that, the more neutral tone the more muddy it can look on my skin and despite its cult following, Marc Jacobs Omega Bronze in Tantastic is very much borderline too neutral to look flattering on me so I’ll say I was fairly intrigued when Tantalize came out because I’ve often reached for darker toned bronzers because the undertone turned was more of what I was looking for.

Rolling Project Pan Update #4

This update is definitely long overdue (#3 was published on Mar 31st) and I think I reached a point with this project when I’m not as excited as I was at the beginning. To be fair, in order to see progress on some of the products, I’ve neglected others and even then, it’s taken me longer to get there than I initially thought. I’ve not been too good focusing on some of the products and the prospects of adding in extra just doesn’t appeal to me so I’m rolling in less than I’m rolling out.

Ranking Concealers For Fair Skin

I’ve taken a month break away from the blog that initially started because of the heatwave and then continued for the whole month mainly because I didn’t have time on the weekends (including a delightful trip to Manchester to see The Nico Project). The funny thing was that I had all my content planned but just couldn’t do the photos but I’ve been off for a week for my birthday and finally pulled myself together despite another London heatwave.

Now onto the actual post, I’ve always been one to have a couple of concealers but within the last couple of months, I went on a bit of a concealer craze trying to find my favourite one. I have quite sunken under eyes and on top of that a very translucent skin that picks up on any veins under there so I’ve slowly come to a conclusion that no concealer will fully counteract that and it’s very much about finding the one that will do the most and look the most flattering. I don’t particularly use concealer in other areas of my face at the moment but most of these will work for that purpose as well. For reference, my best foundation shade match is Smashbox Studio Skin in 0.1. Continue reading “Ranking Concealers For Fair Skin”
