I went shopping the other day. I was itching to go to Boots and pick up some new things to review. I thought I would show you what I bought. The results were quite the mixed bag…
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum
Due to the change in the weather my skin has gotten a little dry, so I thought it was time to pick up an old favourite foundation of mine. It was a product I had not used in quite a while. The bottle I did have was rather ancient, so I decided I needed a new one. It was a marvellous excuse to visit Boots. This sits on dry patches nicely. Whilst the coverage is indeed light, it pairs nicely with a decent concealer. It does not cover redness all that well, so if you are prone to them, concealer is your best bet with this product. However it does leave you with a light and glowing base. I love using this product on my face. It feels like there isn't anything there.
Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder
Talk about good powders - I question why I haven't been able to pick this up sooner! It gives you that matte finish without looking like it is caked on or easily seen. This is a powder that is invisible on the skin. It is long lasting and leaves you with beautiful results. Need I say more? Nope.
L'oreal Nude Magique CC Cream
I picked this CC Cream up because its been rather difficult to cover the red part of my skin. This particular CC Cream states it neutralises redness for a perfect look. This product comes out mint green when poured onto the back of your hand. Massage it into skin and seconds later it looks like foundation. The green pigment capsules that run throughout the product really do well to cover any red skin. It feels light on the skin too. The only problem I have with this is its colour. It comes in one shade. And that shade is for people who have a tan. Pale people cannot really work with this colour. I am lucky to have picked up some colour over the last two weeks. Using only a small amount of product I sheer it out and it works out rather well. But for the winter this product is a big no. Bring out more shades please!
Max Factor CC Colour Corrector
I had high hopes for this little stick. I have been into green concealers recently to cover up my red skin. I managed to pick up this little number in Boots. This CC Colour Corrector is a green concealer in crayon form. It is a mint green cream concealer that works to conceal areas of red skin underneath your foundation. Whilst it is a product that does work in covering red skin, it takes a little longer to work into the skin, especially if its dry. The formula being a cream crayon carries a little less moisture then your average liquid concealer. So it takes a bit of time to achieve the results you want with this product. In one word: 'Its fiddly'. I have managed to get this product to work for me, but it did take quite a while to work out how!
