Hi all =D… Sooo I’ve been wanting to do a big blog for a while now just to let you guys know the new products I’m loving in 2012, and there’s quite a lot so let’s get started.
My new mineral foundation love is by “Jelly pong pong”
It is a talc free formulation which gives great coverage without drying the skin it also has spf 15 init which is a bonus. For anyone who is looking for a new mineral foundation or even someone who has never tried mineral foundations before I would defiantly recommend this product. As you know (If you read my past blog) I have very temperamental skin I break out whenever I change my face routine which is why I’m very careful when trying out new foundations. After years of trying many different foundations (and I mean MANY) I finally found the one that suits me best … Minerals… It doesn’t clog my pores, break me out or leave me with a heavy make-up look.
I first tried Collection 2000 Perfecting Minerals Foundation which I loved, but to my dismay they discontinued it =( Booo… Then the mother told me to try Bare Minerals, so I decided to splash out and buy the starter kit (Id defiantly recommend trying that first) I know it’s quite expensive but it really does what it says on the tin. It covered all my imperfections and didn’t leave me with spotty skin Perfecto!. But one day I was browsing on the internet at new make-up products as us ladies tend to do and I came across the Jelly Pong Pong website (http://www.jellypongpong.com) And I decided to try out there foundations. Its £15 so it’s about a tenner cheaper than bare minerals which was appealing to me as I love a bargain!... I ordered mine in medium and it’s perfect! Absolutely love it, I now prefer this to any other mineral foundations I’ve tried in the past, Its helped clear my skin and leaves it silky soft with a dewy glow =D YAY! I’ve finally got the skin I’ve been wanting for sooooo long.
Second on the list is the Nicola Roberts Dainty Doll Concealer Click Pen in Medium. Although it doesn’t give me the best coverage out of all the concealers I’ve tried in the past it’s still up there on my top 5. It’s a very light fluid texture and is very easy to glide along the face, It’s also perfect for brightening and highlighting the skin, I use it mainly under my eyes to hid any dark circles I’m having that day or just to give my eyes that “pop” they need.
I’ve recently been using my Max Factor colour adapt foundation. I don’t normally wear foundation because I think concealer and my minerals work find for me, but the past few weeks I’ve been using this on the days I feel I either want to make that little bit more of an effort or I feel that my skin needs that extra coverage. Like I say I have very problematic skin so I tend to shy away from heavy thick foundations but I actually really like this product, the formula isn’t too thick but still gives me that coverage I look for, and it bends really well which is always a must. I went down to my local boots store and went to the Max Factor counter and got the lady to colour match me, I wear tan so she put it on my neck and the colour I was given was number 75 Golden I still dust over my mineral foundation over the top just to set it and make the colour match the rest of my body perfectly.
17 Photo Flawless Primer. This is the first ever primer I’ve used so I can’t really say I love it because that would be unfair to the other products out there …Buttttttttttt who cares! Because I LOVE IT!. I’m not too sure why I’ve never tried a face primer before =S I was one of those people who though that it wouldn’t actually work and that it was a waste of money blah blah blah… but seriously WOW how amazing are these things! I work two jobs and often go from one job strait to the other with no time to go over my make up to freshen up =( This use to be a right nightmare because when it came to 9pm, my face was patchy and shiny and yak! Which is really not a good look. But after trying this I’ve never had that problem you know when you have a 12 hour day at work and by the end of it your make up will look exactly the same as it did when you first left the house your on to a good thing. Which is why I recommend this to the face primer virgins out there. It’s cheap as chips as well £4.99 from boots BARGAIN!
Any finally… Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic… The Mother introduced me to the Liz Earle products last Christmas when she kindly bought me the famous Cleanse and polish cleanser and the Brightening treatment mask both of which I enjoyed using I was also given the Skin Tonic in the set as well but never used that until this Christmas ( Im not sure why I never opened it =S Humm ) But I now use it every day as soon as I get out the shower, It has a lovely refreshing floral scent and is very cooling on the skin. It really does make my skin look and feel more alive.
There is still so much more I could write about but I’ll be here all night and no doubt you will end up clicking off and getting bored haha. So I’ve decided to do another blog on my other new loves later in the week =)…
I’d really like to hear about some of your new loves of 2012 or if you have used any of the products I’ve wrote about.
Thanks for reading ladies.
