Lime Crime Red Velve-Tin

Lime Crime Red Velve-Tin

A girl can never have too much red lipstick and too much liquid matte lipsticks. Over Black Friday it was pretty much all I bought…and I bought a lot of them XD Lime Crime was on my list and I had to indulge in one of their new Velve-Tin and of course it was the red tin ūüôā

The tin is super cute and very sturdy and well made. I was super chuffed when it arrived!

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation in Natural Beige

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation in Natural Beige

 

Good Morning,

Back at work already! The weekend always flies by! I thought I would share with a new foundation that I have been trialing; Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation the Matte and Poreless edition.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundationedited
I purchased this in 220 Natural Beige and I wear MAC in NC20. I found the colour selection a little lacking, but supposedly the foundation is meant to change to suit your skin colour. Hopefully, this means no body misses out. I found that at first it was tad too dark, but once blended in with a foundation brush or sponge it looked fine and then as it settled it matched very well. It has a really natural look and finish.

I have been training myself not to touch my face through out the day, which is going well, but even when I did touch my face I found my finger tips came away with some foundation on them, but only if I rubbed. At the end of the day my foundation still looked good, it seemed to stop the end of day tired creeping through and when I took it off there was still quite a bit on my face. I also liked how it was matte, but did not sink into any of my fine lines or cling to dry skin.

Application was not a bother, you just have to make sure it is really blended in to make sure you get the best colour for your skin. It blended very easily and did not take too much work or time. I don’t know how I feel about the bottle itself. There is a lot of product which is awesome, but the bottle does not have a pump or nozzle, it is just a standard opening. I find I tend to pour too much product out, but the plus side it is easy to get back in the bottle. It does make me worry about inadvertently applying too much or wasting product though. I will have to contemplate it further.

Would I purchase this again? Yes, I really like this foundation. It lasted really well all day long, looked good and applied beautifully. Any of my concerns are teeny tiny to how well it performed.

Have you tried any of the new Maybelline Fit Me Foundations?

Good Evening,

How have you been? I have been fightingy new camera and reading pages upon pages of photography how to so that I can learn to take better photos and buy useful camers lenses. So far I am still struggling, I am sure I will get there eventually, I have some great people helping me.

Good Morning!

I have a Christmas present to share with you today. Mr Gabby bought me a new tube of Lime Crime‘s Red Velvet as part of my Christmas present. Isn’t he the sweetest?? I realised that I had never shared my swatches of Red Velvet with you all. While I was swatching I realised that there was some small differences between my old/original Red Velvet and my new one, so I thought I would swatch both to show you.Lime Crime Red Velvet Read more
