I quite liked my last almost favourites post. Even if it did involve a worrying amount of self loathing. So here we go with another round of winning products (a la Mr Sheen), miserable things and something that left me stone cold (but not necessarily sober).
FAIL – Vaseline Crème Brulée Lip Therapy. Mmmm one of my favourite puddings combined with a beauty staple. I normally get on quite well with petroleum jelly type lip balms although I know some don’t like them. This smells and tastes a little bit chemically/ too heavily perfumed though. And even worse I find it slightly drying. This was so hyped up last year but I just don’t like it. Sorry!
WIN - Make Up Forever HD Foundation. When the gorgeous Tracy sent me this along with the Matt Velvet + foundation I had thought, based on online reviews, that my oily bits would loathe this. But no. I love it. High coverage which is my preference, semi matte finish, lasts through work. Fab!
FAIL – The service at my local MAC counter. I’m sure I just got them on an off day and yes it was busy but I popped in to back to MAC some things and it just did not go down well. I wanted to pick up a bottle of their cleanse off oil too but the girl just thrust the lipstick at me and walked off without asking if I wanted anything else. The whole experience was about as pleasant and friendly as erm.... an unpleasant unfriendly thing.
WIN – Taupe. Yawn all you like. I’ve been working silly hours of late and leaving the house for work at the sort of time I used to stagger in from a night out at uni. Elaborate eye looks have gone out of the window and I’m settling for a one shadow sweep across the lids before running out of the door. No other shade works as well for this as a gorgeous Taupe.
MEH – I’ve been curious about the new foam/ mousse style foundations from the likes of Revlon and Maybelline. I finally tried out the tester of the Revlon Photo Ready Airbrush Mousse foundation and it was REVOLTING. It looked pretty cool, all foamy and weird on my hand. But when I touched it it felt like snail goo. Disgusting, slimy and just not at all appealing. Thank goodness for testers. That’s some pennies saved!
