Review- Origins Primer

Achieve a fresh, flawless complexion with Origins Original Skin™ Cooling Primer; an airy mousse with a hint of tint for natural-looking results.

Infused with Willowherb, the lightweight foam delivers ice-cold moisture and hydration, whilst combating dullness and uneven skin tone to reveal a smoother, more refined texture. Helps to restore luminosity and blur the appearance of visible pores to leave skin perfected with a natural, radiant glow.

Free from parabens, phthalates, petrolatum and mineral oil

My Review-

Always shake the bottle well

The consistency of the product is like a mousse

It is easy to control how much product comes out

It moisturises my face, fills in my pores, evens out the texture, smooths out my skin

There is a peachy orange tint to the primer, which helps brightens my skin

The product feels very cool on my face which helps with any irritation

I give the primer a few minutes to sink into my skin and dry down

Foundation goes on top of the primer easily and blends easily

It helps my foundation last a good amount of time

This is just a guess, I would not travel abroad with it as it could explode in your bag due to the high pressure

Have you tried this primer yet?

Review- Maybelline Super Stay Foundation

SuperStay 24h full coverage foundation completely corrects visible flaws and imperfections making it the perfect base for a hi-impact make-up look.
Relentless, all day wear. Lightweight hi-pigment coverage. Flawless transformation.
Skin type: Suitable for all skin types.
Finish: Soft matte.
Coverage: Full
End result: Transform your skin.
Wear: All day wear (up to 24hr)


I used the Bobbi Brown enriched face base as my primer.

The foundation was a bit light so I mixed in the Nyx Foundation Mixer in olive.

To blend the foundation I used a morphe beauty sponge.

The foundation is nearly full coverage as I had add a small amount over my hyperpigmentation.

The foundation is semi matte.

The foundation blends well on my skin and powders blend on top well.

The foundation does last well on my skin through out the day.

The foundation does not oxidize.

I did get slightly oily and I did have to powder.

Testing Makeup Revolution

Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana Powder- I definitely don’t like this powder, it looks cakey under my eyes.

Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer

C10- I like this shade for concealing and highlighting, it has a bit of a peach undertone which helps cancel darkness.

C11- close to my face shade, it is a great shade for concealing blemishes

C12- a tan shade for me, I haven’tused this shade yet.

C15- I didn’t like this shade for a contour, it made me look muddy.

I really like the formula of the concealer, it reminds me of tarte shape tape, but this concealer blends better and it’s affordable.

How I work with this concealer-

I used the applicator and apply it under my eyes

To blend it, I use a beauty sponge

To set it, I used my Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Powder in the shade 2 and I use a sponge to set my concealer with the powder

This concealer is full coverage and lasts well and blends well on my skin.

First- Impression YSL Fusion Ink Foundation

Information on the foundation-

Supermodel skin is yours for the taking.

Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation is a ground-breaking response to a modern beauty demand; the call for trustworthy, perfect coverage and long-wear, but without compromising with a heavy or cakey texture. Yves Saint Laurent has transformed the cosmetic landscape with a cutting-edge, high-efficacy formula, which combines patented advances in texture, colour and active ingredients.

The Texture – Fusion:
Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation contains a combination of sensorial and volatile oils which, upon contact with the skin, evaporate away – leaving only a veil of perfect pigment behind. These oils also make application a deliciously sensorial experience.

– 100% of women find that the product melts on the skin.
– 100% of women feel that the foundation is lightweight and forget they are even wearing it.

As delicate as satin draped across the skin, the revolutionary and featherlight texture allow for a buildable coverage without the caked-on, mask-like effect of long-wear formulas. Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation delivers an SPF 18, and long-lasting superlative comfort.


How I applied the Foundation-

The foundation was a bit light for me, so I mixed in the Nyx foundation mixer in olive to make it a bit darker. The foundation mixer does not change the formula of the foundation.

I applied the foundation with a Morphe Y6 Brush and the foundation has medium coverage.

And I set it with the Vichy loose powder.

The foundation is not heavy at all, it made me look radiant.

It lasted well throughout the day, but it did emphasise my texture.

Overall, I really like this foundation and I will continue using it.

Foundation’s That Didn’t Work Out For Me

1. Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation

I’ve tried this foundation 4 times.

This foundation emphasised my dry patches and the fragrance caused me to break out.

2. Fenty Beauty Pro Filter Foundation

Tried this foundation 3 times.

It made me look dry even though I had no dryness, it just made me look cakey.

3. Nyx Total Control Drop Foundation

Tried this foundation 5 times. At first, it looked nice on my skin maybe, due to my skin changing, the foundation was exaggerating my dryness and texture. And the foundation was blending very well.

4. It Cosmetics CC Cream

I tried the foundation once.

The shade Tan made my face look grey.

5. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation

I tried this foundation once.

The shade was a bit too light for me. The formula did not work out for me as it started melting in my t-zone.

What foundation’s didn’t work out for you?
