Feelunique Haul

Recently did a small order on the Feelunique website. 

1. Garnier Moisture Bomb Green Tea Tissue Mask 

A sheet mask that helps with re- balancing. Also it’s really affordable. 

2. MasqueBar Anti-Blemish Mud Mask 

Bought this to help with my acne. And comes with three packets of mud masks. 

3. The Vintage Cosmetic Company Alice Bow Makeup Headband 

I needed a headband to keep my hair out of my face. Also it’s really cute. 

4. Philip Kingsley Scalp Toner 

This is a re-purchase of mine. Helps with dandruff. 

5. YSL All Hours Foundation 

Returned this as it was too light for me.

Products I Won’t Re-Purchase 

1. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation 

This is sometimes nice on me and sometimes bad on me. It can sometimes look really flawless but then look a bit cakey. Also it doesn’t last long on my skin. Plus it’s really expensive. 

2. Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation

The shade I have has a pink undertone and didn’t really suit me. And it’s really expensive. 

3. Bare Minerals Blemish Ready Anti- Imperfection Serum 

I repurchased this twice to see if it would make a difference on my skin, but it didn’t really make much of a difference. 

I discovered the brand The Ordinary and their products work well on my skin. 

4. Smashbox Concealer Stick Trio 

This comes with a highlight, contour and bronzer sticks. They are creamy and blends well. I don’t use it very often so I won’t repurchase it. 

5. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer 

They don’t have the right shades for me to highlight and conceal. I have to use two shades. Also some drugstore concealers are better.

What’s New in My Skincare Routine 

What I’ve been using at the moment-

The Ordinary- Advanced Retinoid 2%

Use this every night, 2-3 drops

I’ve been using it for a month and I am seeing different on my face with my pigmentation. 

The product has a milky consistency. And I pat in the product to my face. 

Product is really affordable. 

Advanced Retinoid 2% is a lightweight, milky-textured serum that works hard to target visible signs of ageing, while remaining gentle enough to avoid the irritation caused by some retinoid products. Lost elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and uneven skin tone are all easy targets for this superlative skin saviour.

The Ordinary – a new brand that I discovered on the cult beauty and beauty bay website. The products are very affordable. The only problem is that the majority of there products are out of stock. 

Farsali Cleanser 

I use this every evening with my Clarisonic Mia 2 Cleansing Brush. 

I apply a small dollop on my Cleansing Brush and use the brush to massage the Cleanser into my skin. 

This removes makeup, dirt and oil really well. 

I’ve been using this for a week. 

A gentle face cleanser for all skin types.

Infused with eight naturally derived oils, The One Gentle Cleanser offers a variety of antioxidant benefits. Used twice daily, the non-drying formula gently removes all traces of dirt, sebum and makeup leaving skin smooth, even and healthily hydrated.
Green Tea Extract – Protects the skin from free radicals.

Blue Green Algae Extract – Rejuvenating and anti-aging benefits.

Nettle Extract – Rich in vitamins A, B, C, D and K.

Chickweed Extract – Soothes and cools inflammation.

Slippery Elm Extract – Softens and smooths the complexion.

Milk Thistle Extract – Promotes cell growth and hydration.

Marshmallow Root Extract – Anti-inflammatory properties.

Oatstraw Extract – Soothes the skin.

Fenty Beauty By Rihanna – Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation Review 

The packaging looks very sophisticated. The foundation contains 32ml , a little bit more than your standard foundation. 

Information on the foundation-

Finally – the ultimate photo filter in foundation form. Born in 40 boundary-breaking shades, Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation gives skin an instantly smooth, pore-diffused, shine-free finish that easily builds from medium to full coverage. The oil-free formula is made with climate-adaptive technology that’s humidity resistant, sweatproof and won’t clog pores, so that wherever you are, it’s going to work on your skin. Best of all, this long-wearing, light-as-air texture is undetectable on skin – so you always look like you. 

How did FENTY BEAUTY do it?

– Obsessive research to create the perfect range of shades for all

– Exclusive insights from the world’s top makeup artists

– Extensively tested for real life, on real women

 FENTY BEAUTY figured out that it takes the right balance of tone and texture to make foundation work on every skin type. The brand obsessed over custom pigment levels to capture your truest tones with a soft matte finish that’s just right – not too matte and not too shiny. The result? A comfortable long-wear formula that lets skin look like skin. Made for all women to love.


How I applied the foundation-

  • Used 3 pumps 
  • Did one section of my face at a time
  • Used a beauty blender 

First Impression-

  • Dried down quickly 
  • Coverage was Medium to full 
  • Concealer and liquid highlight blended nicely on top of the foundation 
  • Powders blended really well on top 
  • Made my skin look Matte but not cakey 
  • Feels lightweight on my skin
  • Makes my skin looks smooth and poreless 

How it wore through out the day- 

  • On my upper lip the foundation started to crack- which has never happened to me 
  • The foundation did give me a slight glow as it mixed in with my natural oils
  • After 5 hours I haven’t had to blot
  • After 6.5 hours I did have to Powder my nose
  • Through out the day the foundation held up well 

I recommend this foundation for combination skin as it is a matte formula. And has 40 shades and the brand is adding more deeper shades.

The Ordinary Coverage Foundation- Hot or Not

Information on the foundation 

Coverage Foundations are full-coverage formulations available in a comprehensive shade range across 21 shades. These foundations contain higher pigment levels than our Serum Foundations but still offer a smooth finish that avoids the heavy makeup look that can make skin appear more aged. The texture is that of a lightweight, non-oily cream. 

The pigments used in these formulations are treated for a rich, highly-saturated effect. These pigments are suspended in our proprietary spreadability system that allows pigments to look natural on the skin, resist collecting within fine lines and stay on for longer. The foundations offer a semi-matte finish and are compatible with most primers and are designed to work exceptionally well with the primers offering from The Ordinary. 

Price- £5.90

My Shade- 3.0Y 

How I applied the foundation- 

  • Used two pumps and dotted around my face
  • Blended it with a beauty blender 
  • Used Mac fix plus spray to make the foundation last a bit long

This is how the foundation looks, after Concealer, powder, Contour, Bronzer, Highlight and setting spray. 

My thoughts- First Impression 

  • Blended easily 
  • Shade match was perfect 
  • It didn’t cover up my acne scars and high pigmentation that well
  • But it was good coverage 
  • Gives a semi matte finish
  • Lightweight, doesn’t feel heavy on my skin

Through out the day- 

  • Got slightly oily on my t-zone 
  • Sort of caked up on my chin 
  • Last great through out the day 

What I would try next time- 

  • Colour correction 
  • Wear a sheet mask before applying the foundation 

I would definitely recommend this foundation for combination skin and it’s affordable.

First Impression- Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation 

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation 30ml

All the wear, all the coverage, without the weight. Laura’s longest wearing foundation of flawless full coverage and 15 hours of wear fused into one weightless formula.

High-performance wear that’s sweat, humidity, water and transfer resistant. Colour stays true all day and won’t oxidize. Coated pigments glide on to create buildable medium to full colour that beautifully evens out skin tone and minimizes the look of pores and imperfections.

Controls oil immediately and throughout the day. Matte finish is never dull, flat or cakey. Weightless texture looks, fits and feels like a second skin. Skin-fusion technology provides ultimate longwear with comfortable, breathable ease.

Medium to Full weightless coverage.

My Shade 4W1 Maple

How I used the Foundation- 

1. Used 2-3 pumps of the foundation and dotted all over my face and neck. 

2. I used a beauty blender to blend out the foundation. 

3. Concealer and powders blended on top of the foundation really well. No patchyness. 

4. Used a setting spray to set all of my makeup. 

How it Wore Through Out the Day- 

  • Applied the foundation in the morning. Around 11. 
  • It did not cake up apart from on my nose but that may be due to putting on on a bit too much powder 
  • I did not have blot once on my t-zone
  • I wore it for 10 hours 
  • It didn’t make my skin look dry 

This foundation would be the one that I would reach for when I need to wear makeup all day, e.g day out, wedding. The foundation did not feel heavy at all. It did not transfer. 
I would recommend this foundation for normal, combination and oily skin types.
