Whats my favourite Lipstick?

MAC Satin Lipstick - A27 Faux

I am 100% the world's most picky person when it comes to lipstick. I can go shopping, have millions of swatches on my hand, and yet no lipstick.
I went for years wearing absolutely no lipstick because I couldn't ever find my perfect lip colour.
Then one beautiful day in manchester, I discovered my love...
MAC faux.After a day of my usual swatching, I had pretty much given up hope until I tried one more time at the MAC counter.
I asked the assistant if she could recommend a nude colour that would suit me and that's when I was first introduced.
This gorgeous satin finish lipstick looks gorgeous on the lips. The slight taupe undertone makes this the perfect neutral shade for any occasion.
I sometimes find that MAC lipsticks aren't great for longevity but I actually found that this one lasts a decent amount of time.
This now has pride of place in my daily makeup bag and I have a feeling it's going to be there for a long time!!

Maybelline Fit Me Powder

Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder - 220 Natural Beige

I recently picked this up in my local boots as I had completely run out of my Rimmel Stay Matte and I was desperate for a replacement. In a bid to try something new I decided to hunt this down as i had seen a few Youtubers rave about the Fit Me range. 

In my opinion, the shade finder wasn't great as I found that none of them really matched my skin tone and because the cards were glossy the light made it quite difficult to tell. Nevertheless, I managed to work it out and picked up shade 220 which is a natural beige shade. My first impressions of this product completely made up for the problems I had with the shade matcher. 

I found it really easy to apply and although I didn't use the applicator provided my Real Techniques powder brush did the trick nicely. It mattified my makeup brilliantly without looking cakey and created a really smooth finish. As for longevity I did find that it wore off a little quicker than the Rimmel Stay Matte but didn't seem to go patchy like some other powders have done when wearing off.

 Overall I have really enjoyed using this product. The shade range is brilliant and the little mirror in the packaging is a really nice feature for on the go touch ups. I will definitely be repurchasing this! 


Strengths: Shade range, smooth finish, easy application

Weaknesses: Longevity, shade finder
