There is nothing better than finding products that work well with your skin and are just… perfect! Like many of you, i spend so much time (and money) searching for products that are, as goldilocks would say, ‘just right’. I am a lover of products from both high-end and drug-store labels and once i find something that works for me i cling to it and pray that it doesn’t get discontinued!
From left to right; Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation in shade 12 Beige Rose, Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in colour 235 Coral Twist, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in shade NW15, The Balm Highlighter in Mary-Lou Manizer, and Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink.
Chanel Perfection Lumiere is everything that i have been looking for. It is a light to medium, lightweight coverage formula which is absolutely perfect for me. It feels like heaven on the skin and an added bonus is that it is one of very few foundations that does not break my skin out! It is long-wearing and keeps my skin looking fabulous all day long.
I am new to the world of the Jumbo Gloss Balms such as this coral one, but now i’m hooked! It is so beautiful and can be applied thin to look like a stain or thick to look like a lipstick. The tube makes it super easy to apply and you twist it like a lipstick, or my first thought was a crayon ;), to get more product. I absolutely hate products that i need to sharpen because i’m obviously super lazy so this is perfect!
Pro Longwear concealer is, if you excuse my wording, the bomb-diggity! It’s absolute perfection to use under the eye as it is extremely light but packs a punch when it comes to coverage. It is one of very few concealers that will not crease under my eyes. I recently ran out of this and thought it would be a good idea to try out other products, i have never ran into a MAC store faster to re-purchase a product! I can not live without this.
Mary-Lou Manizer is absolutely gorgeous! It’s not for the feint-hearted that’s for sure as it is the most pigment highlighter i have ever seen. Ever. I also like to use it on my eyelids to brighten up an otherwise standard look.
I absolutely adore gel eyeliners; however, they can be a difficult to use and tend to smudge. The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner is the only liner that i have found that will stay in place all day for me! I did a whole post on these here and i have not found anything better. I adore them!
This swatch of the Mary-Lou Manizer does not do it any justice. If any of you have used it before you will know exactly what i mean!
