One Heck Of A Blot Instant Perfecting Power Primer // £10
Anything with 'perfecting' in the title is sure fire way to get me to buy it so I am now the proud owner of this! This claims to prevent shine and shrink pores for all day shine control, helps hide imperfections, even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of redness, help makeup last longer and it contains Vitamin E for added glow. Sounds amazing doesn't it! After application this really does leave my skin feeling super smooth and makeup glides on effortlessly. I don't really have oily skin, but depending on what foundation I use, I do get a bit shiny towards the end of the day. I've tried this with all my favourite foundations and the shine is kept at bay, and pores are undetectable! I don't really think this has any coverage to help hide imperfections and redness though. But as £10 primers go, this is a very good one! And a must for oily skinned gals out there!
Soap and Glory One Heck Of A Blot Foundation // £10
Full coverage, Flawless, shine free, poreless and no caking is what this foundation has to offer (sounds too good to be true)! Despite the bad reviews I'd heard on this on I decided to try it for myself! And this, sadly is too good to be true. This is very thick and difficult to blend. It went patchy and almost started to separate when I was applying. I persisted over a few days with different primers and brushes, nothing seemed to work. The shade wasn't even a very good match. I have the Cool Sand which was to pale. There are also only four shades to choice from, so I wouldn't hold out too much hope if you have a darker skin tone. DISSAPOINTED to some this up!
Archery Brow Tint and precision Shaping pencil // £10
I'm trying to get into more brow products so this completed the 3 for 2 offer. Its double ended, with 1 end being a very fine felt pen and the other end a pencil, for fuller beautiful shaped brows. I really like the pen end! Its so easy to fill in the brows with and leaves them looking natural, full and defined. The pencil end was slightly disappointing. I found it very difficult to apply and was pressing so hard the product began to crumble!!
Have you tried any these? How did you get on with the foundation and Brow Archery? I'd love to know!
Until next time...
