Pale Foundation Review - Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder

I am always on the hunt for a new makeup products and really enjoy shopping around and trying out new products, especially when it comes to foundations. I used to use liquid foundation set with powder and during the summer I tried just using powder and really fell in love with the convenience and also aesthetic of this form of foundation. I started using MAC NW15 Studio fix powder with a moisturiser, primer and concealer underneath and was very pleased with the outcome. MAC has never seemed to provide a shade that is as pale as my skin, close but not exact and I want to look as flawlessly porcelain as I possibly can. So the search began for a new powder foundation.

I stumbled across Estee Lauder's Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder foundation (1N1 Ecru) and was very pleased with the coverage, texture and the colour of the product in the compact. The powder is a light velvety texture with a high coverage and colour pay off compared to other powders on the market eg MAC Studio fix. It also claims up to 14 hours of wear in which it will "stay in place" on your skin. It comes with a sponge applicator which is very nice but I prefer using a MAC 187 brush and building up coverage and then using a sponge if needed. The only thing I would say is that the colour still is a bit too warm for my liking although matching my skin tone. But I am a person who wants to obtain a very pale complexion with little warmth.

Now compared to MAC Studio fix in NW15

So overall I really do love this product but I am going to check out illamasqua as I used to and occasionally still use their skin base foundation and I was very pleased with the colour.
MAC Studio fix - £20.50
Estee Lauder Double Wear Powder Foundation- £27.50
Illamasqua Powder Foundation - £23.00

Cyber Skeleton & Provocateur

I was wondering around my town today and noticed a party shop that has been around since I was litte was having a closing down sale. If you know me I love a good bargain and couldn't resist to see what gems they had in store. To my suprise there were quite a few bits and very discounted. I found a cyberdog top for £10 and its so pretty I am very thrilled with it. Cyberdog never usually takes my interest ad t isn't my style but this top is so pretty. I then found skeleton tights and we all know halloween is just round the corner and I am getting prepared in advance. I then found an Agent Provocateur strip poker game which comes with signature AP cards and chips. I have yet to have fun with this but from firs insection it looks very good. I also got this beauty for £1. Which is so crazy for AP. So all in all an amazing day for shopping.
