MAKEUP ON TRIAL

Hi everyone, hope your well. I can't believe its already december! On the plus side, its nearly christmas. I love christmas time its so festive and nice to spend time with your family.  Whilst christmas shopping recently, i picked up a few makeup products to try out. I've been after the Laura Mercier foundation for ages, so i knew that i needed to finally try it out!



Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation £34: I finally picked this foundation up after months and months of wanting to try it out, and finally after the influence of Lilly Melrose i made the purchase. I got colour matched to the shade 'cream ivory' and so far so good, it matches pretty well. On first impressions i really like this foundation, in particular the consistency. Its quite thick at first. However, you only need a tiny amount and once its blended into the skin it looks so natural and flawless. This foundation claims to have a radiant finish, which i agree with -its quite dewy which is something I'm not use to, so prefer to powder it down to a more matte finish. I will defiantly do a full review on this at a later date once I've tried it out!

Laura Mercier Radiance Primer £29: Whilst getting colour matched for the SC foundation the lady at the counter recommended using a primer to help the staying power and finish of the foundation. She gave me a sample of what she said was the best selling primer. I haven't tried it out yet but when i tested it onto the back of my hand the consistency was lovely and applied smoothly.

Maybeline Colour Tattoo £4.99: If you know me you'll already know I'm slacking in the eye shadow skills department. I honestly don't understand how to apply eye shadow without looking like I've got a black eye. However, I've heard a lot of good things about these colour tattoos and had to pick one up. So far I'm loving them as they allow me to very easily and quickly apply onto my lids. The colour range is amazing and i know ill defiantly be popping back to the maybeline counter to pick some more up.

Thankyou for reading my blog, be sure to follow on bloglovin' What makeup products have you been trying out lately?

  6. Made me want the Silk Creme Foundation even more! I can imagine how flawless it makes the skin look. I'm also still meaning to pick up one of the colour tattoo eyeshadows. What shades did you pick up?

  8. Ooh the foundation sounds like it will turn out to be a good one! I used to be so bad at applying eyeshadow, but since getting good brushes and learning to blend I'm actually okay. I do want to try the Maybelline Colour Tattoo eyeshadows though!

  9. Girl, I feel you. I'm slacking in the eye shadow department too.

    Youtubers make it look so easy, and then I try at home and sometimes I'm so far off course it's laughable lol. I've never used Laura Mercier, but I've eyed their section in Sephora numerous times. What product from the line would you recommend starting out with?
