Small Haul: Lancome & MAC
|MAC Antiqued, Lancome Teint Idole, Lancome Bi-Facil|
So last week, I FINALLY had enough money to repurchase my favourite foundation of all time. This was a joyous occasion that I'd been looking forward to for months! I LOVE Teint Idole and have been using it since I was 17. It's perfect for keeping my oily skin in check without being overly drying or 'flat'-looking.
Like a lot of mattifying foundations, you have to blend it out quite fast, and it then sets to a healthy-looking matte finish. It also smells gorgeous and the bottle is pretty! I actually get compliments on my skin when wearing this foundation - quite shocking for someone that looks like a Death Eater with no make-up on ;)
The girl at the Lancome counter in BTs was also nice enough to give me a generous-sized sample bottle of Bi-Facil eye make-up remover. I've had this in the past and it it probably my all-time favourite but I would never shell out the money for a big bottle! It is super-gentle and really effective - a little goes a long way, so hopefully this will last me a while.
I can rarely walk past MAC without buying something, and last week was no exception. I picked up Antiqued eyeshadow, a gorgeous reddish brown that goes perfectly with my blue eyes. I'm excited to play with this and come up with a few different looks :)
