Since it is the end of the year and also almost the end of the first year of my blog, I thought I would share with you the products that I have enjoyed the most throughout this year.
Starting off with the face products, I actually discovered quite a number of new ones. I did delve into the higher end products more this year and have been pleasantly surprised at how (certain) ones can really change your outlook on make up application.
The L'oreal Studio Secrets Face Primer is quite a recent buy. It blew the rest of my primer's out of the water though! All year I have been on the look out for a decent primer that keeps my oiliness at bay and also helps to keep foundation on for longer. This product does just that and I love it!
At the beginning of the year, when I first purchased the MAC Studio Fix Fluid, I liked it but I thought it was way too much for every day. I soon discovered that I actually was applying too much and didn't need more than half a pea size for the whole face. Now this is my daily foundation because it keeps me from getting oily but still gives me a glow.
The Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer has been my 'go to' for almost every time I have worn make up this year. It is cheap (£4.19 I think?), it covers really well and brightens the under eye area perfectly. It also lasts incredibly long, hence its' name I am guessing!
MAC's Select Cover-Up Concealer is very very similar but has a considerably higher price tag. You also need just the tiniest amount (and you do get a lot of product) so that kind of makes up for it. I have been varying between this and the Collection 2000 one since I have bought this. If you are on the lookout for a good high end concealer, I would recommend this.
All in all, it has been a pretty good year for face products. They are the most important for me, as if they work well for your face, the rest of the make up will just come together pretty easily.
I am currently using my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel but really want to try something different which makes a noticeable difference to my skin. That is pretty much why I don't have a favourite for a face cream. Any recommendations?
