Hello dear readers,
Welcome to my last post of the above series. Today’s post will be on the remaining items sitting in my beauty collection. I have concealers, face powders, eyeshadow base and primer plus highlighter / contouring palettes to post my views on. Let’s get into the post:
- Bourjois Healthy Balance Pressed Powder
A pressed powder designed to mattify and give your skin a healthy glow. Infused with Asian fruit therapy to give your skin a radiant boost. Ultra fine powder texture that works well on it’s own or on top of foundation. This powder has a subtle fruity scent and hydrating. It melts into your skin nicely as well. Lightweight packaging. I recommend this powder for all skin types and will repurchase in the futue.
2) NYX Mineral “Set it & Dont Fret it” Matte Finising Powder.
I bought this powder when priceline had a huge 40% off beauty products. A mineral matte translucent powder to place over the top of makeup to give a flawless finished look. I was excited to try it when I purchased it and it does the job. I do find that this product can be messy to use. Also be careful when handling and opening the product as the product tends to move around a lot and unfortunately half of the product ends up on top of the separator. It does have a tendency to make me look cakey on top of foundation so use this product sparingly. Wouldn’t repurchase this product becuase of the messiness.
- Covergirl Clean Invisible Concealer
Lightweight, creamy formula that conceals flaws and imperfections. This is a good concealer as it coneals my undereye circles and acts as a great eyeshadow primer too. The soft tip applicator makes this product easy to apply and use. Since I don’t use much concealer, it is a good price to pay. This conealer also gives a clean look as well. I have repurchased this product again.
2) Nude by Nature Flawless Concealer
This concealer is meant to ide dark circles and imperfections for a second skin finish. Honestly, this concealer is very thick and cakey to use. When using this product, it feels very heavy on my eyelids as well as underneath. It does cover dark circles well though. I guess it provides higher coverage which is why I didn’t like using it. Instead, I am using this as an eeshadow base instead of a concealer.
Highlighter / Contouring Palettes:
- Models Prefer Contour/ Collection Pressed Powder
I bought this product to try during the 50% off sale at priceline. This duo is a matte highlighting and countour palette to add depth and dimention to the place. For the price it’s a good palette although I found that the contour can give a muddy appearance. I have this in the medium shade. The highlighter is alright as well. A little product for the countour and highlighter goes a long way. For the price, it’s a good starter palette.
2. Models Own Sculpt and Glow Contour Palette
I was excited to try models own products when it was released several months ago. There are three colours: Sculpt, Light Up and Afterglow. For the price, it gives good pigmentation for a drugtore brand. The contour powder doesn’t give stong pigmentation which is why it loses a star. In saying this, it doesnt give that muddy look that some countouring powders do. The highlighter definetly lives up to the name ‘lighten up’ with a beautiful beige shimmer Afterglow, the blush with coral and gold undertones is gorgeous as well. Highly recommend this product for the price!
3. Models Own Sculpt and Glow Highlighter Palette Gold Spotlight.
Can I say “wow” to this product because it has now become a holy grail product. The colours are just stunning and for a drugstore brand, it definetly exceeded my expectations. There are three colours: Gemstone, The gemstone one on the left is my favourite colour. A shimmery gold that lifts the cheeks and works well with blushes in my collection. The glimmer palette in the middle gives a natural bronze tint to the face and cheecks. The cream highlighter on the right takes that highlighter to the next level! For the price, I highly recommend this product!
4. Models Own Scuplt and Glow Highlighter Powder. Strobe Light (pictured below) and Natural Light (pitured below)
I first discovered this product when priceline had the 50% off sale. Strobe light contains white, pink, purple, yellow and bronze colours together to create a flashlight bright appearance. I also purchased another one in ‘Natural Light’. Natural Light contains coral brown, bronze and golds to give the palette a sun kissed look.
Both these powders are my go-to for an everyday look to the evening. Also, these powders gives a very natural glow and it is buildable product. Use a dense brush such as a highlighter countour brush to give your cheeks a pop of colour or a fluffy brush all over your face for a subtle finish.
Nyx High Definition Blush.
These blushes are just so bright and pigmented and gives the face a pretty flush. I have this in: Summer, Double Dare and Electro. Use a good blush brush and you’re set. Get these on sale and you wont be dissapointed!
So here ends my beauty post series of ‘What’s in my beauty collection’. These are just my views on the product and whatever may work for me might not work for you. If you want to purchase these products to try, then feel free to do so :).
Anyways, see you in my next post.
